Born in 1999, Asthmatic Kitty Records was originally conceived as a platform for musical projects by a community of artists from Holland, Michigan, a small city on the shore of Lake Michigan. Some were Holland natives, and others had come to attend local colleges and universities. While the original Holland nucleus has now dispersed to various parts of the country, the fellowship is still growing, with new friends and shared projects with other independent labels. Asthmatic Kitty is now based in Lander, Wyoming, Indianapolis, Indiana and New York City. Asthmatic Kitty was named after Sara, a voluptuous orange and white longhair who wandered out of the woods in 1995, pregnant, starving, and afflicted with various parasites and ailments, including feline asthma. Although she still wheezes a bit, especially when being chased by her sister Tabby, Sara today enjoys a healthy and happy life of luxury. Cast-off animals make the best pets!

LYRICS:
The evil it spread like a fever ahead
It was night when you died, my firefly
What could I have said to raise you from the dead?
Oh could I be the sky on the fourth of July?

“Well you do enough talk
My little hawk, why do you cry?
Tell me what did you learn from the Tillamook burn?
Or the Fourth of July?
We’re all gonna die.”

Sitting at the bed with the halo at your head
Was it all a disguise, like Junior High
Where everything was fiction, future, and prediction
Now where am I? My fading supply

“Did you get enough love, my little dove
Why do you cry?
And I’m sorry I left, but it was for the best
Though it never felt right
My little Versailles.”

The hospital asked should the body be cast
Before I say goodbye, my star in the sky
Such a funny thought to wrap you up in cloth
Do you find it all right, my dragonfly?

“Shall we look at the moon, my little loon
Why do you cry?
Make the most of your life, while it is rife
While it is light

Well you do enough talk
My little hawk, why do you cry?
Tell me what did you learn from the Tillamook burn?
Or the Fourth of July?
We’re all gonna die.”

Lemon yoghurt, remember I pulled at your shirt I dropped the ashtray on the floor I just wanted to be near you Emerald Park, wonders never cease The man who taught me to swim, he couldn’t quite say my first name Like a father he led community water on my head And he called me “Subaru” And now I want to be near you Since I was old enough to speak I’ve said it with alarm Some...

Our minds are troubled by the emptiness. Destroy the middle, it's a waste of time. From the perfect start to the finish line. And if you're still breathing, you're the lucky ones. 'Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs. Setting fire to our insides for fun Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong The lovers that went wrong. We are the reckless, We are the wild youth Chasing visions of...

Bright Eyes "First Day Of My Life"

Bright Eyes' music video for their song "First Day Of My Life" off of their 2005 album I'm Wide Awake It's Morning. A very simple but great video that goes hand in hand with the song. The song is probably one of the best by Bright Eyes, definitely a song with much more hope than a lot of others by the band. After listening to this song and seeing the video, it's hard not to have a good feeling inside you :)

So can we pretend sweetly Before the mystery ends? I am a man with a heart that offends with its lonely and greedy demands There’s only a shadow of me; in a manner of speaking I’m dead Such...

Buy/listen here: http://smarturl.it/tonya-harding Lyrics: Tonya Harding, my star Well this world is a cold one But it takes one to know one And God only knows what you are Just some Portland white trash You confronted your sorrow Like there was no tomorrow While the rest of the world only laughed Triple axel on high A delightful disaster You jumped farther and faster You were always so full of surprises Are your laces untied? What’s the frown on your face for? And just what are the skates for now? Tell me which is your good side? Are you lonely at night? Do you miss all the glory And the mythical story Of the Olympian life? Yamaguchi in...
