show me by mint royale

sonia showed me this video awhile ago and i just finally found the album so i've been listening to this song over and over. normally i don't like home-made music videos but this is just so well done and fun that i have to post it!

p.s. tribe leader is cute, eh?

jamaica, early 90s (first version)

i wish i could paint for you
my entire childhood in sunny tones:

red star apples with pink insides
and seeds in each juicy arm

green turning to creamy yellow
pulling down the plaintains

black, razor-sharp coral
how jr walked so easily on it

burnt orange rusted-out mustang
through the holes the pavement whizzes by

brown, thick tree roots
struggling against coral underground

pink, bursting with yellow
black seed in the middle

i wish i could describe for you
the sunlight filtering through the trees
and maybe my childhood happiness
would rush back to me

rough draft: visiting downtown for dinner

glistening wet pavement
thick, moving slightly underfoot.
scrape shoes on the dry cement after
the smoking barflies complain about the city.

freezing cold breeze
thin, silk skirt letting up a draft.
stopping traffic, men comment, hair askew
each bench assures safety, relatively unnoticed anymore.

tired faded pages
slowly, absorbing every word.
this time, concentration interrupted by passerby
a man with a dog and a strong love for ginger hair.

short text message
finally, he's being let out.
waiting on a bench across from the office
jumping from one to another - a new text - "late!"

big bike race
whistling, they whoop and wave.
they pass 3 times during the wait
impatience for the officer is growing steadily.

tall shaggy boy
uniformed, he lights up.
the big bike passes yet again
he grabs and kisses passionately, like an old movie.

passionately they whistle, whoop and wave.

i've moved again. this time to a house that's smaller in some ways. new roommates, others have gone onto their own thing. i miss them terribly.

i'm still not unpacked as i don't have a closet so i need to buy a wardrobe from ikea or something.

champagne glasses are 99 cents each at liquidation world on grand marais, will buy a few for sonia and i's champagne night, whenever that may be.

it's too chilly for may.

i started a twitter, a new one. i can't log into my old one for some reason and it won't let me do the 'forgot password' thing. oh well. it's here. i wanted the username sarahlillian but it was taken already :/

this is such a boring entry, but i did it for tayler. happy? sonia, update yours.
