Just because

Helplessness Blues

I spent last night lying on the couch listening to Helplessness Blues. It's been a long wait for the new album but I definitely wasn't disappointed. Would it make sense if I said it's the same but different? There's a new direction which is amazing but it's distinctly them. Ahh happiness.
You can stream the album on NPR.

Sleeping beauty

“Death-haunted, quietly reckless, Lucy is a young university student who takes a job as a Sleeping Beauty. In the Sleeping Beauty Chamber old men seek an erotic experience that requires Lucy’s absolute submission. This unsettling task starts to bleed into Lucy’s daily life and she develops an increasing need to know what happens to her when she is asleep.”

Directed by Julia Leigh and produced by Jane Campion, Sleeping Beauty looks amazing.

Sakura sakura!

 Holy smokes! The cherry blossoms are out. It's lovely to be back in Japan.
