Have you seen the Best Coast cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rhiannon’?
Hold on to yr halo…
Best Coast’s cover of ‘Rhiannon’ flung me into a sort of crisis the other day. When I heard it, I felt like crying. I felt really bad. I wanted to post it on Facebook with the words ‘comforting thots of death’ or some such comment. And then the idea was for me to post this, immediately afterwards, with indignation:
Which is a video of me, covering Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Sara’.
But I didn’t do it because my big theme is Grace, Everett, and that’s how I try to live. I try to temper my reactions, I try not to puke up internet all over dear life. I try to keep it with mine, as best I can. But in this case, I can’t… quite. So by writing to you I’ve found a third way – a way that I can shoot from behind bulletproof glass and vent on this issue, whilst simultaneously being removed by ‘analytical’ distance. Except, you are the last person I would ever want to hear me say these things that I am about to say. Above all else, The Sisterhood.
