Lemon Tree


Lemon Tree

I'm sitting here in the boring room
It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I'm wasting my time I got nothing to do
I'm hanging around I'm a-waiting for you
But nothing ever happens - and I wonder

I'm driving around in my car
I'm driving too fast I'm driving too far
I'd like to change my point of view
I feel so lonely I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens - and I wonder

I wonder how I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow Lemon tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just another Lemon tree

(Sing)

Dab- da da da da- dee dab da-
da da da da-dee dab da-
dab deb dee da

I'm sitting here I miss the power
I'd like to go out taking a shower
But there's a heavy cloud inside my head
I feel so tired put myself into bed
Well, nothing ever happens - and i wonder

Isolation - is not good for me
Isolation - I don't want to sit on a lemon tree
I'm stepping around in the desert of joy
Baby anyhow I'll get another toy
And everything will happen - and you'll wonder

I wonder how I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just another Lemon tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just a yellow Lemon tree

And I wonder wonder
I wonder how I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see
And all that I can see
And all that I can see
is just a yellow Lemon tree

Madame Tutli-Putli

Madame Tutli-Putli boards the night train, weighed down with all her earthly possessions and the ghosts of her past.

She travels alone, facing both the kindness and menace of strangers. As day descends into dark, she finds herself caught up in a desperate metaphysical adventure. Adrift between real and imagined worlds, Madame Tutli-Putli confronts her demons and is drawn into an undertow of mystery and suspense.
The National Film Board of Canada presents a stunning, stop-motion animated film that takes the viewer on an exhilarating existential journey. The film introduces groundbreaking visual techniques and is supported by a haunting and original score. Painstaking care and craftsmanship in form and detail bring to life a fully imagined, tactile world unlike any you have seen.
Jungian thriller? Hitchcockian suspense? Artistic tour de force? The night train awaits you.
Madame Tutli-Putli is directed by Montreal-based filmmakers Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski, who are principals in the graphic arts studio Clyde Henry. Amazingly enough, this is the first professional film from the duo, who wrote, animated and directed the film entirely by themselves. If it’s any indication of things to come, these guys promise to be a real force to reckon with in the animation world.

Blueberry Girl (Neil Gaiman)



Blueberry Girl
by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Charles Vess
This is a prayer for a blueberry girl . . .
A much-loved baby grows into a young woman: brave, adventurous, and lucky. Exploring, traveling, bathed in sunshine, surrounded by the wonders of the world. What every new parent or parent-to-be dreams of for her child, what every girl dreams of for herself.
Let me go places that we've never been, trust and delight in her youth.
Nationally bestselling author Neil Gaiman wrote Blueberry Girl for a friend who was about to become the mother of a little girl. Here, he and beloved illustrator Charles Vess turn this deeply personal wish for a new daughter into a book that celebrates the glory of growing up: a perfect gift for girls embarking on all the journeys of life, for their parents, and for everyone who loves them.
Give her all these and a little bit more, gifts for a blueberry girl.
