all I felt was falsely strong

The Microphones was a lo-fi band based in Olympia, Washington and fronted by Phil Elvrum. Elyrum is the principal member of the band, but he has collaborated with many other musicians on his records.

In 2004, Elvrum announced that he had changed the name of his band to Mount Eerie and has since put out many releases as Mount Eerie, including three full-length albums. In January 2007, Elvrum released a new single under the Microphones moniker, titled Two Songs by the Microphones, the only Microphones release since the name change. He has since continued to release music as Mount Eerie.

Joseph Arthur (born September 28, 1971) is a contemporary singer-songwriter from Ohio. He combines poetic lyrics with a layered sonic palette, and has built his reputation over the years through critically acclaimed releases and constant touring; his unique solo live performances incorporate the use of a number of distortion and loop pedals, and his shows are recorded live at the soundboard and made available to concertgoers immediately following the show on recordable media. He was discovered by Peter Gabriel in the mid-'90s, and signed to Gabriel's Real World label as the first North American artist on the label's roster. (via wiki)

I know it's coming I can feel it in my bones

Music video for "100 Other Lovers", the first single from DeVotchKa's new album 100 Lovers, out now. Directed by Chloe Rodham.

Almost reminiscent of short animation films nominated at the Oscar Awards, DeVotchKa's "100 Other Lovers" uses stop-motion to depict the heart wrenching tale of a of a Babushka and her collection of birds. DeVotchKa utilizes a grand scheme of trickery through use of an upbeat, head-bopping melodic line accompanied by sad, woeful lyrics. "100 Other Lovers" is the title track of the band's new album, in stores now!

Cum ştii că nu mai eşti copil?
Totul nu numai că pare temporar, chiar este. În copilărie crezi că o să fii copil pentru totdeauna, că parinţii nu vor trece de 35 de ani, şi că şcoala nu se va termina niciodată.

Ştii că nu mai esti copil când reuşeşti să distingi diferenţe între copii de 1-2 ani, şi mai grav, să le estimezi corect vârsta.

Nu mai eşti copil când alegi să păşeşti pe bucata de asfalt curat, fără gheaţă, iar pe lângă tine trece grăbit un şcolar în alunecare.
