Coloring Club Plus — 3/23/19 with “Geyser,” by Mitski

Mar 23

Bonus video.  I captured M’Lady Crumpet on video tonight.  This is the little lady who has made herself completely to home here after just a short period of time.  She is hooked on catnip and loves to play with the laser pointer.

This is another cut off of “Be The Cowboy,” called “Geyser.”  There is something almost spiritual about the composition of it.  Every listen convinces me of it even more.  Mitski is exquisitely talented.  I’m hooked, can you tell?

Per wikipedia: Be the Cowboy is the fifth studio album by Japanese-American indie rock musician Mitski, released on August 17, 2018 … In a statement, Mitski said she experimented in narrative and fiction for the album, and said she was inspired by “the image of someone alone on a stage, singing solo with a single spotlight trained on them in an otherwise dark room.”… At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, Be the Cowboy received an average score of 87, based on 30 reviews, indicating “universal acclaim”


You’re my number one
You’re the one I want
And you’ve turned down
Every hand that has beckoned me to come

You’re my number one
You’re the one I want
And I’ve turned down every hand
That has beckoned me to come

‘Cause you’re the one I got
You’re the one I got
So I’ll keep turning down the hands
That beckon me to come

Though I’m a geyser
Feel it bubbling from below
Hear it call, hear it call
Hear it call to me
And hear the harmony
Only when it’s harming me
It’s not real, it’s not real
It’s not real enough

But I will be the one you need
The way I can’t be without you
I will be the one you need
I just can’t be without you

Songwriters: Mitsuki Laycock

      Thanks, Hans, it did, but I listened to Roy Orbison’s best of and then Mitski, so it was quite enjoyable. There is something about that song, the way it starts slow, then builds up to the full blossom of the end. Knocks me right over.

      p.s. yes she is the total lady. So dainty. No thought of using her claws or biting. She did put her teeth on my hand once while we were playing but no pressure at all. She barely meows and when she does it’s very faint. I think she was hit though, as sometimes when I go to pet her she cringes 😦

        Cats are interesting. I have never owned one-i must have some kind of allergy to them-my sister has one and when I am around it- my eyes water and without knowing it I start rubbing my eyes…anyway… I read this quote recently and thought it was funny- Winston Churchill once said “I am fond of pigs- Dogs look up to us, Cats look down on us. Pigs look at us like equals!

    Crumpet – I love those demon eyes. Mitski is new to me and I really liked the song so thank you. The colouring is inspiring again.
