no, not pj from family circus

today's first shuffle song on ipod: "Angelene" - PJ Harvey, from Is This Desire?

i like polly jean harvey a lot. she's a badass, she stays out of the spotlight and produces consistently cutting and awesome records. her duet with thom yorke on Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea ("The Mess We're In") is one of my all-time favorites. when i first heard her in high school i knew that i had found someone that i would always like. i even tried to listen to captain beefheart because i had read that he was a big influence on her, but i didn't really take to it. i remember him making me feel vaguely uncomfortable. maybe i'll try some other time.
