It's nice to hear this (very unexpected) news from Heather. I was getting frustrated with the lack of any official word from her and her management and the problems with her website, so this comes as a welcome surprise. Hopefully it'll be a strong new collection of songs.

I'm a bad person because sometimes I believe and act as if I'm better than others (while I'm not). It's really frustrating for those around me and I realize I need a good lesson in humility. Only, it's part of who I am and I can't suppress it. I often think and hear stuff like "why did you say that?" or "why did you have to act like that?". It's quite sad, really.

Guyville is her best. The rest of her work can't hold a candle against it, but if you want to give it a try, Whip-Smart is probably the best choice. It's a bit like Under the Pink by Tori Amos after she released Little Earthquakes: more of the same, more professionally recorded but lost some of the magic that made the first one so special.

I really have no idea. I do know that there are some things about me that my grandmother knows nothing about, but which I do want to tell her... eventually. Maybe Death is saying that I should stop postponing that?

I had a really weird dream about my grandmother: she was alone in her house, and each time the bell would ring she'd ask who it was and then ask questions only they (the person at the door) could know. I remember me ringing the bell, then my grandmother questioning me. I thought she was acting crazy again, so I left, saying that I'd come back another time. Then, at night, my grandmother was alone and she hears the bell. Naturally, she asks who's there. A cold voice answered her: "Death". Shocked, my grandmother said something like: "Eh, not tonight no." And then it ended.

Actually quite scary. I don't know what this dream means, really.

Oooh, I love the ! It's so fresh, so colourful, so innocent and sweet...

The interview was also a lovely read. No world-shocking details about her domestic life, but it's always nice to hear her (though a lot of questions were recycled; be original!).

Recently a lot of laid back music like Jack Johnson. Especially 'If I Had Eyes', which makes me smile everytime I hear it. His voice sounds soo sweet...

I quite respect his talent as an actor, but Tom Cruise has acted irrationally once too many for me (Scientology, Katie Holmes, his daughter, Oprah, etc.). It just doesn't makes me want to go to his movies anymore, unless they receive rave reviews.

I really like Johnny Depp. He has played some wonderful roles (I remember a particulary performance as Edward Scissorhands), and even though he sometimes plays really weird characters he always makes me feel for them as if they were real.
I think you're quite right about Pirates. But I really don't care, his role was the best! (even got me talking like a teenage groupie )

I'm going to watch War of the Worlds on tv. I haven't seen it yet, but I'm rather curious. Even though it has Tom Cruise in it .

Rilo Kiley. They're far from new player on the music scene, but I've discovered them only recently. Very fine indie band.

Also buyed 'Kala' by MIA, similar situation.

I'm not thrilled with either poem winning the tournament, but of the two 'Soon Alaska' is def my favourite. It's quite gentle and dreamy. 'The Girl' is a nice read, but I can't connect with it.

Listening to webradio, I prefer Musicovery.com. It's quite handy: you define your current 'mood', select a genre if you will, wether it should allow hits or only non-hits, time-period, and you are set. It's really a 'web', since all songs are connected and you can freely skip between them. I found it to be very useful .

Btw, what's with the discrimination of male artists?

Probably 'Soon Alaska'. However, 'Six years Behind' could be easily made into a short, acoustic song.

Quite a difficult one I think. "Soon Alaska" at first sight seems more attractive, but "The Poison is quite interesting.

"Soon Alaska" in the end, remains my favourite (even though I hate that last line, it's so cliché).

Here's a funny pic of Heather at a concert (probably around 'Siren'). Obviously she was irritated by the photographer...

Heather often reminds me of a Steffi Graf or an Amelie Mauresmo (both tennis players). They all seem to share the same face-type, quite funny :)

Ooh, I find this to be a though cookie... I love the contemplating pace and words in 'Cracking...', but I also like the last lines from 'Girl'...

In the end, I'll probably go with the former, since it's far more focused and better constructed.

'The girl', really. It's quite personal, but I can relate to letting go of someone you love.

'Murmur' doesn't quite catches me and it feels unfinished (thus not finished properly).

I thought the gig was really good. Lots of energetic songs and the crowd responded great. Especially funny was when everyone was singing "don't you forget" (Big Wheel). I had a really good time :).

I see other similarities between her work an other artists work. Maybe it was intentional, but the line "the rose, the red red rose" in song xxxx always reminds of the line "the rogue, the red red rogue" from the song 'California' by Joni Mitchell.

I'd go with 'Real is my only friend'. It's quite touching, and has a more personal feel. 'Abandon' is starting to irritate me the more I read of it.

I believe 'Dragon' is about a relationship were the man is coming with a lot of baggage from a previous relationship that puts a weight on his current relationship ('a woman did this to you'), and that she encourages him to get over it ('slay that dragon').

I quite like the song, especially the beginning is quite fun when you use a microphone.

I didn't know there was a video made for 'Sugar'. Was there a video for 'Drink it in' ? I never saw it. And I completely forgot about 'I'm no angel'...

I'd love to go on holiday to Bermuda, I think it's really pretty. Have fun there .

Which is your favourite HN video ? So, I mean the official videos to the singles (not concert footage). I'd like to know which video you people like the best, and why.

For your convenience, I tried to assemble most videos.

Oyster:

Maybe an Angel

Walk this World

Truth and Bone

Siren:

London Rain

Heart and Shoulder

South:

Gloomy Sunday

Virus of the Mind

Storm:

River of Life

Redbird:

Welcome

Done Drifting

Collaborations:

Someone New (with Eskobar)

Renegade (with ATB)

My personal favourite is the video to Virus of the Mind. It's lovely quirky and Heather looks fine in it too. But most of them are quite good, excluding IMO:

- London Rain (soo wrong!)
- River of life (booring!)

What do you think ?

'Shanghai Baby' by Wei Hui. Feminine and care-free, it feels a little out-dated (it was published in 2000). Still a nice book.

I think I'm going to buy the album. I didn't buy 'The Beekeeper' (lucky me), but what I've heard from the new album is quite appealing. The use of guitars is somewhat strange for her, so I'm quite curious to that .

I heard this song a while ago. I'm sorry to say that I really don't like dutch people sing

There are no real mistakes in the dutch part:

"Sea, sand
The heat and the calm river
The silence and the dryness
And the emptiness of it all.

Heaven and earth
The wideness of the land
And the wisdom of one man
That is enough.

There's nothing I'm waiting for
Tomorrow it'll still be night
Pondering on my worries and the world
And all the times I lay awake
I decided
What a beautiful day
What a beautiful day"
