Flood research

MOTHERs are supposed to be responsible for their children. Usually the men folk take to the cars and the hurricane protection, Im just saying.

By chance while on hold with the car insurance and waiting for the salamander to call me back I was listening to Dark Dark Dark and was struck by the coincidental sentiment of the lyrics of their song titled //Flood//

I can relate to it so easily and I find it hauntingly beautiful:

 

 

Your arms, so low to the ground
They’re filled with taconite, oh
Oh, your back, the slightest curve
You feel the weight of it all
La da da dum da dum

Oh, your feet, they shuffle around
Like you packed your body with sand
To keep the rains back
Oh, your feet, they shuffle around
You feel the weight of it all
When you feel the weight of it all

Oh, you dance the saddest dance
But you’re dancing, you’re dancing it all
La da da dum da dum
Oh, you dance the saddest dance
You feel the weight of it all
When you feel the weight of it all
You feel the weight of it all

But you might go
Up and away
Watch you move through the earth
Moving like light
But you might go
Up and away
Watch you move through the earth
Moving like light

Let your thoughts go
Let them move you
Move through the earth
Moving like light
Let your thoughts go
Let them move you
Move through the earth
Moving like light

Have a listen:

then I checked this movie trailer that was made 3 years ago and I wish I could roll like they do sometimes, especially in times like these when creativity can be one’s savior.

watch this please

when I checked them for the first time live last month my jaw dropped and my iphone ran out of batteries and I’m pretty sure ?uestlove was tweeting about me and Zahra! He was there to see Emily Wells who is opening for DDD on their current tour.

DDD is another reason to thank Zahra ~ she “turned me on” to them
