My Blog and Chocolate Santas

image

While wondering what to do with those leftover chocolate Santas, a memory came to me – how I made lists of what I’d do better or differently  in the new year. If I’d only listened to that former, more optimistic self I’d probably have a team of interns taking care of this blog….but what the hell.  I’ve kept it going for a year so far and it keeps me out of trouble, so here’s to the next!

This month’s theme: Ready For Anything. Which is the title song of a CD which my psychobilly band Kathy X made in 2004. After all the curves life’s thrown me in the 10 years that followed “Be ready” is one resolution I WILL try to follow

 Have a good year!

Ready For Anything – Behind the Lines

I was well and truly out of love with love. The deeper you go the longer it takes to get out when the walls cave in.  I wrote Ready for Anything in 2001 when I first moved to Berlin, damaged but ready to rock…..

Deep and meaningless – Baby be mine – Let’s take it easy – Let’s waste some time

Not an invitation to walk up the aisle…. except for whatever kind of aisle you  might find in a  darkened room where nobody gives a damn and the alcohol has already started to  blunt your judgement

Let’s taste the bitter end  before we even start – C’mon baby break my spine – you can’t break my heart

I dont need to be a fortune teller to know that this sordid little encounter is going precisely nowhere

I’m ready for anything that you’re thinking of – I’m ready for anything – Don’t call it love

because that’s the one place I do not want to go to in a hurry

 No coming back for more – No second time – I’m gonna rip out all the wires that go from your world into mine – Been stabbed in the back so many times you can see right through to my bones Don’t expect no sympathy – no happy home

i already gave my happy home to someone who trashed it

One of 13 songs from the album (also titled “Ready for Anything”) – which my band Kathy X recorded back in 2004 – it took us 4 days, in the depths of winter in Northern Poland. Yeah, typical of our rockstar lifestyle. For monthly updates on my recordings, shows, and tiny adventures join my MAILING LIST
