Over 2,000 words and I'm still barely scratching the surface of "Waking the Witch" from Hounds of Love.

Kate Bush's Before the Dawn tour opens in London tomorrow! I'll be there in about three weeks to catch two shows. This series might be finished by then.

There's something moving under the water.

"Under Ice" dissected to within an inch of its life at The Mask Factory.

Song-by-song analysis of Kate Bush's The Ninth Wave (Hounds of Love's side B) with an emphasis on story and symbols. I've been taking notes on this for ten years; finally writing it down.

Each year I've admired it from afar. MY TIME HAS COME. The weekend can't come soon enough.

New Year's Eve! I bought a new half-mask, which I'm a little in love with.

Jesse and I did our best to find "Overlook Hotel guest" costumes for last night's showing of The Shining forward and backward.

The film itself was beautiful, haunting, and the best shared crowd experience of the festival so far. People laughed and gasped at the uncanny symbolism. Spontaneous applause broke out when the two narratives resolved in the center.

I was there. It was grand. One of my favorite Tom Waits performance experiences ever is now hearing him start plonking out "Chicago" on the piano. To me that song of hopeful immigration encapsulates my decision to move to California, and to hear him sing it so close to my new home meant everything. Jesse and I danced up on the hilltop, wrapped in a blanket, happy.

It's brave of us to stay, even braver to go. Wherever she goes, I go.
