thanks be to jesus!
two things to be thankful for:
the heat wave has broken. we are now lollygagging about in temperatures in the lower 80s.
on the way to the subway tonight, e and i discuss:
"it's going to be the early-80s tomorrow."
"really? does this mean i'll wake up with feathered bangs and wearing Jordache jeans?"
if you haven't heard her, seen her, you should. i just saw her live tonight at the Highline Ballroom here in NYC. not only does she have an amazing voice that channels the soul goddesses of the 60s, she's only about 6-years old. (not true. she's just turned 20 on may 5. OMG! my grandma betty's birthday!). she's still a wee uncomfortable onstage - she sort of reminds me of me when i was a freshmen theater major in monologue class:
but what do i do with these things called HANDS? i swear i've never noticed them before! get them OFF!
but you just don't care. she's so damned charming, what with her bouncy, British accent and her little peasant top (with a Spanx underneath, she told us) and her fake eyelashes and her "mum" in the audience. her singing voice is similar to that of Amy Winehouse, but she's still very much her own artist and woman.
and did you notice? she's round, and curvy, and downright ample. i like seeing that. a round, curvy, beautiful woman selling out two nights at a popular NYC music venue. now... if they'd only show her entire body (not just her face) in her music videos. see?
grow some 'nads, music industry.
