snow

"If that whimper of snow is IT, this is the wimpiest storm yet" -my mom

Thanks to all who contributed suggestions for a winter playlist.  [New suggestions always welcome.]  Sadly it seems that most songs buy into winter=cold=bad.  I like "Snow" by Fake? 'cause it has the line "warm like snow," but so far the only song that's really been "yay winter!" has been
"White Song" by Hyde (thanks to helholden)

Breathe
Crisp and cleansing the winter air
I dream of the world in a peaceful sleep
Snow falling gracefully down
Rejoice in winter's deep charm
I can't wait
I can't wait

Freeze
People gather around the fire
I feel all the warmth that the cold inspires
Frost covered tree tops are bright
Shimmering silver tonight
I can't wait
I can't wait

I hope snow will fall upon us soon
Everywhere
The whole world veiled in white
I'd be reset to face the seasons
Once again

Yes on and on falls the snow
Like diamonds from the sky

[Japanese]

And I hope snow will fall upon us soon
Everywhere
The whole world veiled in white
I'd be reset to face the seasons
Once again
skate away

Olympics: figure skating medal winners gala skate

I slept in like whoa today, so I'm catching up on a lot of LJing.

oyceter has a solid post on the privileging of female figure skaters as dolls rather than athletes; also on the appropriation of Asianness in Kill Bill.

Also: say what you will about the Metro, but their front page photos of the women's figure skating results were better than the Herald *or* the Globe.
