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.

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.

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.

There's something moving under the water.

"Under Ice" dissected to within an inch of its life at The Mask Factory.
To the casual listener (including teenaged me) this isn’t immediately a concept album. After all, it’s at this point that a lovely, aching lullaby gives way to an utterly unrelated song about ice...

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.

I love Sketch. The service is wonderful (they remembered I'd asked about their take-home chocolate sauce and kept me apprised of the new batch's progress every time I went in) and the ice cream really shines. Flavors I have loved: The Earl Grey with candied cocoa nibs to top it. The chocolate sorbet (!!) that's as rich and dense as gelato. The summery strawberry. The very coffeelike coffee. The light, sweet, floral lavender and rose geranium flavors. The astounding vanilla bean. The burnt caramel with caramel and sea salt topping. Mmmm. The empanadas are also tasty, flaky, and just enough for a big snack/light meal. I also love the take-home candied citrus peels and marshmallows. (Yes, I treat myself here. A lot.)

I knew what dog I wanted to meet and went in excited. But Theresa at the front desk resentfully rattled off directions to the kennel (a nearby gentleman kindly led me back, as I didn't know my way around), left me alone in the adoption room with no toys, treats, or supervision, ignored me entirely when I knocked and then asked for help in the adoption room, snapped at me for not following policies she never informed me of, and behaved irritably and unprofessionally when I asked what the adoption process entailed. Why would I adopt from a shelter that won't acknowledge me? How can you adopt when staff won't tell you how? Theresa does not belong at the front desk (though at least she was forced to acknowledge me eventually; the other woman at the desk never even made eye contact). The dog and I weren't a right fit, unfortunately, but now I know to keep searching for my new pet at other area shelters.
