Bonfire Heart – James Blunt


days like these lead to…
nights like this lead to…
love like ours…
you light the spark in my bonfire heart…


days like these lead me to you
to your arms
to your warmth

nights like this remind me why
you are my all
you are my only

love like ours gives us

you spark my flame
my flame ignites your heart
together we are everything
for each other
for us



Everything is destroyed; nothing is innocent; nothing is pure. Destruction surrounds the sweetest of souls, the purest of angels, the dearest of all. Destruction is human, is humane, is humanity. Destroy all that has meaning; purify my mind; cleanse my soul. To become completely whole, one must be completely destroyed. To be entirely reborn, one must destroy oneself. No traces remain; no remnants of the old self can exist.

I am destroyed; by an errant word, an unintended innuendo. I destroy my self, my love, my hate. Others destroy me piece by piece; I can destroy in one fell swoop. I have destroyed. I will destroy. I am destruction.

Fat Freddy’s Drop

I couldn’t just sit back and let this one pass me by… I have a new musical crush: Fat Freddy’s Drop. I went to their concert tonight at the Enmore Theatre, and while I was bone tired, I was able to just chill and let my mind wander while moving to their seductive rhythms. What an experience to see a sold out concert fully participating in the music: swaying to the rhythms, dancing to the beats, singing with the music, participating in the production of music. FFD seemed to be completely absorbed in their music and reveling in the fact that others enjoyed them – most of the time, it looked like it was a great jam session rather than a full on concert. This helped the audience become involved in the music and created an intimate atmosphere with more than 500 people… If you ever get the chance, FFD are worth every moment… Here’s one of their live performances on French TV. (Kinda random, I know, but also pretty cool…)
