I am feeling so sad yet ultimately heart-warmed by Fiona Apple's decision to cancel her tour in South America for her ailing pet and oldest friend. Reading over the years in interviews about her Janet have always been beautiful and the fact that she wants to be there for her dog who has always been there for her, and to make the most of their time together makes me respect her even more. Her letter announcement made me so very teary-eyed, but it's great to see the overall response from her fans is of understanding, empathy and support.
A set of goofy pictures with partner and friends from my trip into Melbourne last month. We're all crammed together in the photobooth because that's true bonding right there. I'm in the middle with the grey shirt. The Skydeck is incredible.
Pretty good interview, there are mentions of Song Reader demos and songs from 2008 he wants to finish and get out, and a song about his experiences in Bondi way back. I lol'd when he corrected the Doctor (interviewer) on New Pollution
''I started a record about four years ago. Recorded it. And every year or so that the songs come out [I] work on them for a few weeks and then I get busy with other things,'' Hansen says. ''I did the record originally [to be released soon after] and then after two years it felt like old news, like it was irrelevant now. As the years go by, it feels even more so, because this is from a completely different decade.'' It sounds like the kind of box set extra, the ''lost album'', which would excite fans if it ever got out. ''Yeah,'' he says a little wearily. ''I've got a few of those. Fortunately or unfortunately - I haven't figured that out yet.''
Oh, ya' big tease you..
And the whole sense of urgency and mentioning of time make me feel strangely anxious. But that's probably just me.
