the wainwrights


Oh no.

No, no, no.

Rufus Wainwright has a sister, Martha... and she is as cool as he is! While I was on holidays in downtown Adelaide I allowed pocket money for the finding of two things I'd not yet found in Brisbane record stores; The Gossip's "Standing in the Way of Control" and "All I Want" a documentary film about Rufus Wainwright, my favourite of favourite singers. His album "Poses" is a huge favourite, from beginning to end. I could sing it in its entirety (very badly) for you. Check out the siblings singing together. It's kinda pretty and sorta sweet and if you think about the fact that, something Martha explains in the documentary, when they were kids they used to go to bed and try to out-sing each other until one of them fell asleep - well, it's like they are just doing that but in front of a camera. I love how he plays guitar with his index finger and I'd really like her jacket. I'm totally smitten.

Erin, Hi!!

I have been meaning to catch up with your (insert another word for blog here) for over a week now. Why do I procrastinate these things? You have so many heart felt, witty, intelligent, poetic, thoughtful, inspiring, melt in your mouth when you say them .. words. Are you sure you don't know how brilliant you are?? If I was to try to compare my site to yours I would feel severely inadequate, but in my wisdom (yea right) I know that the best we can do is be true to ourselves. This means that you will have to live with being brilliant for the rest of your life and I sorry to have to dump that on you, for brilliance comes at a price... you will never understand why you are brilliant because the moment you do, it will be gone.. pooof floating up to the sky never to be seen again... so you'll forever be brilliant but you will never know it.. that sucks!!

By the way, when you gonna quit your stinking job and show your photo's to the world?!? I just checked out your photo's online... I have no words! (how often does that happen??)
