President Bartlet, “War Crimes,” The West Wing (via kayleyhyde)
So proud that Kayley and Lex are watching TWW.
Birdy’s cover of ‘Young Blood’ (originally by The Naked and Famous and amazing in its original form) shuffled after I finished rereading TFiOS in January and is now inextricably linked with that book to the point that in my head I’ve storyboarded the film trailer set to this song. And also to the point that when it just played in the coffee shop I’m working in I had to concentrate on my work so hard and try and push all the quotations from that beautiful book that swim to mind out of my mind so that I can continue to function and write about horrendous things (trauma, terrorism, despair) in a nice critical way.
I really love both versions of this song.
The State I Am In | Belle & Sebastian
The priest in the booth had a photographic memory for all he had heard
He took all of my sins and he wrote a pocket novel called “The State That I’m In”
And so I gave myself to God,
There was a pregnant pause before he said, “okay”.
Now I spend my days turning tables round in Marks and Spencer’s,
They don’t seem to mind.
I gave myself to sin,
I gave myself to providence,
And I’ve been there and back again,
The state that I am in.
