One day Rufus Wainwright will knock you out

Every time I hear about a new Rufus Wainwright release, I get excited. All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu will be released on April 20th and last week I received an advance copy. I uploaded it, listened to it and then deleted it. Like most of his albums, it just didn't appeal to me.

there was a day of song...closely followed by this night of darkness

Watch out now, take care

Beware the thoughts that linger

George Harrison "Beware of Darkness"

The pretty high school senior went for a run around the lake the other night and didn't come home. All around town the next morning flyers were posted in windows asking for help. The television trucks with the satellite dishes came, and the search parties… Continue
