PJ Harvey Tuesday #10: Satisfaction by Lauren O’Neal

But really, they’re not going for “good.” What they’re going for is a total deconstruction of one of rock’s most canonical classics. Is it still “Satisfaction” if you subtract the drums, the guitar riff, and most of the vocal melody? Maybe not. But it’s a crafty idea to sing a song about nonconformity by defying all conventions, including the song’s own conventions for itself. And if there’s anything Björk and PJ Harvey do have in common as female solo artists, it’s that they’ve both unflaggingly flipped the bird to rules written by men, musical or otherwise.

It’s as if, after laughing about their sparkly heart clippies over a pint, they signed their contracts with their fingers crossed behind their backs. Oh, you want us to sing the official second-favorite song of white maledom? About how upset a man is that women won’t sleep with him? Well, all right. But you may not like what you hear.

So much blue. Christmas Day 2013 at Mission Bay. CA.

By the way, the van in the picture had a castle made of bird cages on top and stuffed animals  all around.

Found this in the Scripps Family Collection. No id for the people, or the donkeys, but photos are labelled La Jolla, 1914.

Kneesies - May 1961

From our Charles Schneider Photo Collection. There’s no explanation of why these were taken or who the girls are. Maybe a fad that never caught on.

La Jolla Shores from 1915 to 1960.

In its early days La Jolla Shores was known as Long Beach and until Scripps Oceanography and the LJ Beach and Tennis Club moved there, it was grazing land for dairy cows. In the 20’s the land was surveyed and lots put in sales were slow  because it was hard to get there and people worried about possible flooding. When the Great Depression hit development stalled and it wasn’t until the 1950’s and 60’ when roads improved, the economy and population boomed that the Shores became prime beach front property.

In 2009 the La Jolla Historical Society ran a small exhibit on the pets of La Jolla. I found these images while go through some old files and thought  that since the internet is powered by pets I’d add these to the collective database.
