Tori Amos — “Little Earthquakes” (from Little Earthquakes) — Little Earthquakes - Little Earthquakes

I find watching all this nonstop news coverage of people in Washington, D.C. and New York City go apeshit nuts over this afternoon’s 6.0-ish earthquake much more amusing than I ever should (if only because, as big a baby as I am about such things, I know damn well I’d be losing my shit with just as much vim and vehemence as the people I’m watching in Times Square are and have been ever since the ground first shook hours ago). My unsolicited advice on sailing through this crisis (which is, essentially, identical to my advice on sailing through any crisis, regardless of its ultimate import) is as follows: crank up the volume on some Tori, paste a smile upon your glorious face, and allow the wind to carry all your troubles downstream.

  1. the buzz from A.:

    Best response to Tuesday’s earthquake: California is rolling its collective eyes at what the East Coast is doing right now; even the usually diplomatic New York Times got it right: Out West, Eye Rolls and Jeers for East. (And yes, I’ve been in an earthquake of similar magnitude not too long ago.) Oh, I like the Tori Amos song too! Be forewarned, though, it’s definitely authentic Tori Amos.

  2. the buzz from brandon:

    I’ve nothing sufficiently interesting to add on the (already forgotten about) earthquake beyond what I wrote above, but I say give me authentic Tori Amos over inauthentic Tori Amos any day of the week. (And twice on Sunday!)
