American Horror Story || Opening Credits
Elliott Smith died ten years ago today at the age of 34 from two stab wounds to the chest. Two. At the time of the stabbing, he was at his Lemoyne Street home in Echo Park, California where he lived with his girlfriend, Jennifer Chiba. According to Chiba, the two were arguing, and she locked herself in the bathroom to take a shower. Chiba heard him scream, and upon opening the door, saw Elliott standing with a knife in his chest. She pulled the knife out, after which he collapsed. He died in the hospital with the time of death listed as 1:36 p.m. A possible suicide note, written on a Post-it, read:
"I’m so sorry.
God forgive me.”
His death was reported as a suicide, but never formally ruled as such. The official autopsy report released in December 2003 left open the question of homicide. The case, however, is no longer being investigated.
On July 30, 2004, nine months and nine days after Elliott’s death, Jennifer Chiba filed a lawsuit against his family for 15% of his earnings, claiming that she and Elliott lived as “husband and wife”.

Can’t wait to see them at the Renn Faire this year.

The Smiths “I Don’t Owe You Anything”
I wonder how many times is too many to listen to Kveikur by Sigur Rós.
It’s infiltrated my brain.
Saw them open for Erasure years and years ago. Amazing band. I remember that Erasure floated out condom balloons to the crowd. Also, there were some girls near us that apparently didn’t realize the sexual orientation of Erasure and had a homophobic hissy fit. My friend Robert was responsible for getting their ignorant asses kicked out. It was a great night on a multitude of levels.

Yep, just as I suspected. Kate Bush is fucking epic-ness personified on Bose. “The Sensual World” and “Army Dreamer”. Gah. Then I listened to David Sylvian who made me quiver. And Radiohead? Shut the front door.
David Sylvian is perfection.
JAPAN - Canton (by biladd)
One of my friends and I were talking about music we like to have in the background while doing mundane things such as housework. This is one of my personal favorites.
Also see anything by Abba.
Big Country - In A Big Country (by SownTheRose)
"I’ve never seen you look like this without a reason,
Another promise fallen through, another season passes by you.
I never took the smile away from anybody’s face,
And that’s a desperate way to look for someone who is still a child.”
I used to have this on vinyl, but it appears I lost it in the separation.
Now that you mention it, I used to own this on vinyl as well. It’s like my ex thought of my stuff as a parting door prize or something.
