I’m definitely at heart! And because it pains my good rocker heart that this Friday I totally deprived you of our oh-so-beloved Friday Break, Ima take it to an all new level : the Hump Day Break!
This week (indulge me, please!) I have something so special for you! I reflect all my obsessions on you and it’s not bad at all! I’ve been singing Blur’s Tender for so many hours that the entire house is now on a Tender spree! And that’s so beautiful! I trust you had a wonderful week with me here (I know I did! And thank you so much for that!), a splendid weekend because now we’re already on the roll with a new month, a new week! Let’s have a great time together, like we always do! (more right after the jump, enjoy Blur Tender!)
Have I already told you what Apocalyptic arrangements must be made in order for me and my Adored husband to see a movie together? Just the too of us? If not, well this is the time! Do you know when Avatar was released into cinemas across the world? 18th of December 2009! That’s last year! Do you know when the honorable Mister and Missus Kpriss went out to cinemas to see James Cameron’s Avatar? Well, just the other day! And because we waited so long, we treated ourselves with a full Imax experience. Which was… well.. royal!
As you know, I’m definitely not a spoilers girl so I’m just gonna say this: if you haven’t had the Avatar pleasure until now please make all the impossible arrangements possible and run out the door to see it! Trust me on this one, those 2 hours 40 minutes will be magical! Absolutely magical! (and I’m not talking the Harry Potter expeliamus type! I’m talking the James Cameron ft Pocahontas via 3D/Imax neurons drooling type!)
(and as you’ve probably guessed by now, that if you haven’t had the Avatar pleasure – it’s a crushing movie about love. About connections and communities. All kinds and natures! So Blur’s Tender comes as a natural Avatar progression into the real Stylefrizz world) Getting back to the song now: Blur presented Tender to the world in 1999. (am I getting old, or there was really great music done back in the 90s, late 90s?) Included on Blur’s album called 13 and it written by Damon Albarn and Graham Cox (and co-sung by them). The song followed Damon’s break-up with his then girlfriend Justine Frischmann (Elastica’s lead vocal, who was very emotional when first listening to the lyrics) so it’s natural to assume that this is what inspired Tender. There was another video version proposed to the band but they didn’t approve it so the only official video is this black and white studio one. Simple and beautiful, just like the song, isn’t it?
