Candy, Ice Cream, Chocolate, and Good Dreams

Sally Mann - The Two Virginias (1988)
Rich stories thrive under the smoothed haziness of hindsight in Sally Mann's photographic masterpieces. Her use of antiqued glass plate photography processes and her own personal family moments as artistic subjects define a strong perspective exuding an undeniably loving motherly tone.

The first track is by Art Paul Schlosser, a local Madison artist and street performer whose brash insensitivity speaks a sensitive truth. Honest lyrics and uncompromised passions excitedly establish seemingly strange, but poignant contextual pairings of milkshakes, good dreams, and moms. The second is a new remix of an aforementioned musical obsession of mine called The Knife. If you haven't checked their unique style out yet, now's the time.

Art Paul Schlosser - I Like My Mother (mp3)

The Knife - We Share Our Mother's Health [Trentemoller Remix] (mp3)

You can buy an Art Paul CD for your mother here. He also has a tribute CD (other artists covering his songs) coming out soon, so I'll keep you updated!

the knife scares the crap out of me.
but i can't stop listening to this song.

that's evidence for the effect original sin has had on my soul, don't you think?

happy graduation!
