And remember the smell of the fabric\Of your simple city dress




Love, let me sleep tonight on you couch
And remember the smell of the fabric
Of your simple city dress


Oh... that was so real

We walked around til the moon got full like a plate
The wind blew an invocation and I fell asleep at the gate
And I never stepped on the cracks cause I thought Id hurt my mother
And I couldnt awake from the nightmare that sucked me in and pulled me under
Pulled me under.

its time






Tom Waits - Time

Well the smart money's on Harlow and the moon is in the street
And the shadow boys are breaking all the laws
And you're east of East Saint Louis and the wind is making speeches
And the rain sounds like a round of applause
And Napoleon is weeping in a carnival saloon
His invisible fiancee's in the mirror
And the band is going home, it's raining hammers, it's raining nails
And it's true there's nothing left for him down here

And it's time time time, and it's time time time
And it's time time time that you love
And it's time time time

And they all pretend they're orphans and their memory's like a train
You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away
And the things you can't remember tell the things you can't forget
That history puts a saint in every dream

Well she said she'd stick around until the bandages came off
But these mama's boys just don't know when to quit
And Mathilda asks the sailors "Are those dreams or are those prayers " ?
So close your eyes, son, and this won't hurt a bit

Oh it's time time time, and it's time time time
And it's time time time that you love
And it's time time time

Well things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl
The boys just dive right off the cars and splash into the street
And when they're on a roll she pulls a razor from her boot
And a thousand pigeons fall around her feet
So put a candle in the window and a kiss upon his lips
As the dish outside the window fills with rain
Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart
And pay the fiddler off 'til I come back again

new records!


King George V street

Records:

Lena got me:

John Cale - Artificial Intelligence(mint)
Pet Shop Boys - Behaviour(good)

at the Dizingoff flee market.

I found a store on Dizingoff 90(Off the Record).
Around 10,000 records,all very clean,reasonable prices.
I got:
David Bowie Low(good)
David Bowie Scary Monsters and super creeps(Mint)
Tom Waits - Rain Dogs(good)
Bob Dylan Greatest Hits Vol. II(double record)(very good)

total - 100nis\20$.

They have a mint"Joy Division - Closer" for 90 NIS. I really want it.

Also got a Danish Journalism book circa 2000.Great BW pictures.
The text is in Danish but I dont mind since it was dirt cheap.

The nikon FE2 handles wonderfully,sits great in the hand and the automation doesn't bother me.It handles just like the fm2n(which is very good).
I'll have to see results before I feel comfortable to shoot stuff I care about though.
