One question though, why is PJ wearing a cross around her neck? She's not a christian is she?


i think she was talking about it in one of the interviews Cat posted recently (or in another one, i just remember that i read about it recently). she said that she didn't grow in a christian family, but now she's discovering different aspects of religion, but she didn't want to talk about it. something like that.

for some reason in my head, i always thought she studied different kinds of religion and then adhered to the aspects she believed, so kind of an all around spiritual person but not aligned with one religion or the other. must've read something to make me think this...


yeah, for some reason that seems more likely. but wearing a cross is still a bit weird. maybe it's just a fashion thing.


there's an interview article from 2000 (or 2001 - the Stories era, in any case) in which Polly informs the interviewer (who is wondering about it) that the ornamental cross she is wearing was a gift from her mother.

unless it would be a political statement from somebody advocating the death penalty (and a specific method of carrying it out).


(here I'm just considering what a time traveller from the first century B.0. would think if they saw this. perfectly logical in terms of what the cross actually represents, historically, originally.

wearing a cross, weird indeed. as if people would be walking about with little ornaments in the shape of a hanging rope on their chest. consider what sort of thought that would inspire in the onlooker.

but of course, the placing of a shorter horizontal bar on top of a longer vertical one could be done purely for aesthetic reasons, and be worn as an ornament without any symbolic significance or ideological intent. never mind that two pieces of wood combined into such a structure were actually used for executing people.)

I'd be really funny if Jesus had been executed by a guillotine.

the Christian resurrection story would also have been rather messy, with the man coming forth without a head on his shoulders, perhaps carrying it in his hands. (lucky for them that the ancient Romans hadn't invented the guillotine, because the religious iconography resulting from this might have been somewhat peculiar.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6J_JCGwS ... re=related - "The Devil" by Edward Key - thought that it would sound odd covered by men, but I'm a bit charmed by this version. It's slower... And I found it moving. But "come, come here at once" - hahh, no one can did it like PJ :D

And speaking of Thom Yorke: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8C3hXo2xCo "This Mess We're In" by Jake Dilley & the ColoRx. Instrumentally it's totally astonished me. God, I love YT :grin:

I wonder what Big Exit would sound like if played by Led Zeppelin.
