Layladylay


I made these really silly collages today because I didn't have a lot of time in the studio. My flight to Perth is bright and early tomorrow morning which is so exciting! I actually am really excited. I was just looking up all the Op Shops in the vicinity of the hotel I am staying. There is one that is only a four minute walk away! I made a playlist to perhaps listen to on the plane. It is called 'Sexy'. There are reasons for this, one being I was reading some book on Madonna which is not unusual and she said that when she was a young teen she would lay on her bed and play her Bob Dylan record of Lay Lady Lay over and over and over and just cry. I love that. You can download the tracks via this link http://www.mediafire.com/?4980x797mv3fl  ...don't be shy! I'm into people crying on their beds to this y'know in the least cruel way possible and okay so I can't imagine anyone crying to Barry White. Or Marvin Gaye's 'Let's Get It On'... but the rest... hope you have tissues up your sleeve! I just wanna specify as well that I think the reason I like the image of Madonna crying to Lay Lady Lay is that it's not actually an incredibly tragic song, it's more like she's crying about other stuff like being a teenage girl, and this is the soundtrack to that. I always bring this up, but like the scene in Almost Famous where Penny Lane is getting her stomach pumped and they play 'My Cherie Amour'..
