Fridayish.  
coffeeandink makes me happy this morning by sharing a copy of "Go to the Water" by Jamie Oakes with me.

I wish I had an easy way to share music with all readers. Unfortunately, I have a tiny quota on my drizzle pages--15mb--and 5mb of that is extra space that I pay for every quarter. I chose drizzle for its principles, not its price, but it's still pretty sad. I also have dial-up though, so it's kind of moot.

I have this song looping right now and every time it starts I feel a frisson of Brian-y melancholy. "Two hundred hours...and next month will be the same. Time is a line on your face. Time is life slipping away..."

Gale Harold playing Brian is a work of art. There are times when the expression on his face is like an existential mirror. Torn, empty, and lost.

Every day at work, I'm finding it difficult to concentrate. This is no great surprise. But it tires me.

Across the street, there is an astonishing sight of maintenance people mopping the great white curved roof of the stadium, roped to stanchions in case they should fall.

Do you want a gmail account? You can email mp3s easily with that, sending and receiving. I have some extra invites. If I can remember what my gmail login is. :: furrows brow ::

Nah, I don't need another e-mail account. But thank you! :>)

I have an idea as to how you can share music with your readers: send an mp3 to someone - yourself if you like - using https://s3.yousendit.com/ , and when it gives you the URL after sending it, copy and paste the URL into an LJ post.

I think it'd still have to upload and send via dial-up though.

My connection is really slow these days, and I've been able to use it without it taking too long.

I must look into that, then! :>)

I just had to comment and agree with you about Gale Harold. The end of season one? I don't know that I've ever seen a face quite so expressive on film. He literally looked broken. And yet in simpler, less dramatic moments? Still as powerful.
