Couch Session: Elsinore



Couch Session #5 — Elsinore

Elsinore, a gaggle of five Midwestern men,
came by while driving cross-country, and all the way back again.
A band from back home, from a much smaller town,
a quainter place, where people you know are always around.
We became fans first, friends second, constant listeners third,
with such dynamic songs, the lines became blurred.
One thing that remains static, straight, tried & true,
is what their music involuntarily does to you.
The chills from the lyrics, which sink like blood on a page,
tighten your throat, coarse right through your veins.
If their harmonies don't make you feel, you must be sans a soul,
a frozen-blooded creature, a heart lined with coal.
"Is it just something you can't quite put your finger on?" they pose,
Like they're inherently aware, like they already know.
Far from their home, the town we too used to claim,
they sang out from the new place we now give that name.
Luckily, we were able to postpone our goodbyes,
when the band stayed two nights, not one, from a snowstorm surprise.
And as the quintet lay quietly asleep on inflatable beds and cots,
there was a sense of being back in Illinois that could not be forgot.
So, to present a band we love, from a place we adore,
we give you, dear friends: Elsinore.

Yellow couch + magazine = best use of found objects as instruments! I'm really impressed. Way to sing it guys, those songs really resonate and move me. And thank you Carlye for constantly expanding our musical environment. Keep it up.

Also, interesting subtext with Rhianna being on the cover of that magazine-turned-drum...

I like your theory. It explains a lot about Holmes/Watson too (both old and new), which, while not incest, always has turn-century-homophobia giving it a charge. Even if the writer doesn't choose to deal with the question of transgression directly, there's always going to be a reason that H&W can't be open about their relationship ladies leather handbags.

It's all about how to choose handbag that suitable for one's own preference. However, the following article gives you some general idea of coming handbag trends in case you are the person that interested n this topic.In the past, many of handbag designer believe that the smaller the handbag the more convenient that the owner will get. This believe is quite true in the past as since women have only few stuff to contain inside so they seem did not bother about the size of the handbag. Convenient was the first priority that they are concern so they try to get as smaller as they can. But today, that trend seems not to work anymore, women have more stuff to carry so they need bigger handbag.

Therefore, handbag designer have to follow this trend by create new style of big handbag to offer to customer as now everyone seem to be very busy.Trend of colour of handbag are also changing. We are get used to with dark tone colour such as black and brown. These two colours beiges were practically the only color deemed suitable for handbags. New trend of colour of handbag is changing when more women start to look for new shiny colour to represent their preference and lifestyle to public. New colour of leather handbags have been launched to the market, such as spring, turquoises and greens, which are the most popular colour. Even though the colour leather handbag still very expensive and there are not many could afford, but people still look for other type of material other than leather, which is a lot cheaper. However, Black is still classic and very much acceptable, but colors add more personality and flare to your outfit.Although the new trend of handbag come and goes very quickly, but these two elements I am quite confident that they will still be the based trend for the next couple of year.
