hahaha, veronica and i were just syniag that those creepy ladies on the big screen were the freakiest choice ever. but ditto, an amazing show and really well-supplemented by liz's story of the backstage visit ;)


arcade fire=brilliance. their live show is one not many can hold a candle to, in my book! looks like a LOT of fun!! i do enjoy a good spoon crnecot as well :)


Was Kate ever able to actually go en pontie in her ballet shoes? Just asking also my best friend since high school (in the 80s) has lost all excitement for Kate because of her last 2 albums- what can I do? She's changed into a Tori-obsessed maniac. To me Kate will always be my guiding light and she has changed my life- ever since I heard Wuthering Heights from the Whole Story back in 1987. I can't imagine life without her. Kate, thank you.


I found this animation piece to be too ltareil, and therefore too clumsy. I would have worked more abstractly myself, told the story through inference (or not at all it's such a strange idea in the first place; not a bad idea, just one that's better left to the imagination), perhaps using the shadow puppets she seems to be using for Lake Tahoe. It just doesn't come off, in my opinion, and when the snow lover starts to melt it's really grotesque, and the distorted reality of that intrudes upon what should be a more subtle process, an almost metaphorical thing: the perfect lover who inevitably slips away, leaving nothing but a chill in the air. At least that's what I think.
