Jeff Buckley - Forget Her

Posted on 2010.07.31 at 17:08
Tags: , ,
While this time's busy sleeping,
All the noise has died away.
I walk the streets to stop my weeping,
She'll never change her ways.

Don't fool yourself, she was heartache from the moment that you met her.
And my heart is frozen still as I try to find the will to forget her somehow.
I think I've forgotten her now.

Her love is a rose, pale and dying.
Dropping her petals in land unknown
All full of wine the world before her was sober with no place to go.

Don't fool yourself, she was heartache from the moment that you met her.
My heart is frozen still as I try to find the will to forget her somehow.
She's somewhere out there now.

Well my tears fall down as I try to forget,
Her love was a joke from the day that we met.
All of the words, all of her men,
all of my pain when I think back to when.

Remember her hair as it shone in the sun,
the smell of the bed when I knew what she'd done.
Tell yourself over and over you won't ever need her again.

But don't fool yourself, she was heartache from the moment that you met her.
My heart is frozen still as I try to find the will to forget her, somehow.
She's out there somewhere now.

Oh she was heartache from the day that I first met her.
My heart is frozen still as I try to find the will to forget you somehow.
Cause I know you're somewhere out there right now.

Call for Papers: Not PowerPoint Again! Presenting research on women in popular culture differently.

University of York, 23rd April 2010

Are you bored of the traditional conference paper? Tired of watching a presenter stand and read off a script while pointing to an ill thought-out PowerPoint display? Nervous of presenting in a way that feels alien or doesn’t support your research?

Then come along to our Day School where we are experimenting with different and alternative ways of presenting research.

Our aim for the day is to encourage participants from all disciplines to deliver research in inspiring ways. By thinking of different ways to present our research we can spark new perspectives, imagining different angles and approaches that we may never have considered before. We hope to attract presenters from a range of disciplines and thus intend to question the rigid lines of disciplinary thought that we so often become constrained by. The day school will facilitate this interdisciplinary integration by providing an atmosphere of experimentation and questioning.

We want to encompass presentations from as many disciplines as possible; the topics may include, but are not limited to:

* Music
* Sporting women
* Representations of weddings, marriage and divorce
* Women on film and TV
* Magazine culture
* Books
* Gardening
* Representations of religion
* The Internet

We hope to encourage discussions around how presenting differently may lead to thinking differently about research in academia; how presenting differently helps the researcher and the audience to engage with ‘papers’; and whether experimental presentations really can have a place in traditional academic circles.

As the day is geared to presenting in innovative and engaging ways you may wish to present your paper using, for example: performance art, workshops, short films, live experiments, music, dance or other interactive methods. The design is entirely up to you.

To take part in this Day School please submit a summary of your presentation or a Storyboard (both of which must outline your proposed topic, the mode of your presentation, how long it will take, and what equipment you will need) to: notpowerpointagain@yahoo.co.uk by 14th February 2010.

so i've just put together the introduction, literature review and methodology/methods sections of my ma assignment and it comes to 4,056 words. the whole assignment is only meant to be 4,000-4,500 and i still have the data analysis/findings/conclusion to go. serious drafting and chopping to do but at least i'm not struggling for words as was the case in other modules!

update - i cut a good 800 out (somehow!) and the findings and analysis section is coming along thick and fast. woot woot!

i realised i hadn't updated the eye situation. sunday night i was getting really peeved about the whole eye thing. i reasoned that since i hadn't any pain anymore and that it had been about 4 weeks since i'd been hit with ulcerness that i might assume it had cleared up and could put the contacts back in. so i did. not only is it fine but it also turned out the weaker sight in the 'bad' eye had just been a case of the glasses lense not being strong enough. with my contacts in all is back to how it should be. hurrah! all better :)

last day of pirateness at work today as i'm going down to grantham college tomorrow to meet my prospective y13s, get timetable, go over resources etc. it's been a good week overall. and last week come monday! i'm very excited as i'm getting so TIRED now and need a rest.
