Fake Plastic Trees

Currently on repeat...  some song can resonates with you at certain moment in your life and it digs deep into a space that you never thought were there.

 

A green plastic watering can

For a fake Chinese rubber plant

In the fake plastic earth

That she bought from a rubber man

In a town full of rubber plans

To get rid of itself

It wears her out

It wears her out

It wears her out

It wears her out

She lives with a broken man

A cracked polystyrene man

Who just crumbles and burns

He used to do surgery

For girls in the eighties

But gravity always wins

And it wears him out

It wears him out

It wears him out

Wears him out

She looks like the real thing

She tastes like the real thing

My fake plastic love

But I can't help the feeling

I could blow through the ceiling

If I just turn and run

And it wears me out

It wears me out

It wears me out

It wears me out

And if I could be who you wanted

If I could be who you wanted

All the time

All the time

Songwriters: Colin Charles Greenwood / Edward John O'brien / Jonathan Richard Guy Greenwood / Philip James Selway / Thomas Edward Yorke

ROGER STEVENS

I stumbled upon Lyons Wier Gallery yesterday and found the work of Roger Stevens.  I was immediately drawn to the smooth line of bented brass.  His jewelry line is to die for. Turned out, he must be a dog lover!  There's a whole section of his work dedicated to wired dogs.

Here are a few of my favorite pieces...
