I always think of space when I think of you - those velvet unknowable reaches, the vastness, the infinite stretches of emptiness between stars and planets.

When I stop to really think about it, it terrifies me. Our little blue-green ball here is so comfy, so familiar. I can't imagine what it must be like to be thrust from the Mother's embrace, to go spinning into that abyss. To me, a map of the sky's legend only reads, "Here There Be Monsters". To you, though, all that space out there, spinning endlessly above us must feel like home. Gravity must be so confining to you, sunflower. Your sadness echoes to me, bound to a body made of earth when all you want is one made of stars.

1) There's some confusion on the title - YouTube has it Tenth Planet - Ghost, I heard it as Ghost by 10th Planet... I like Ferry Corsten's mix better, but this video is kind of nice for it.

2) Through Glass by Stone Sour. A song about stars. The video's kind of meh. The song means something different to me. Do you ever feel like you know someone, even if you've never met them? Sometimes, just because it's written in the stars doesn't mean they're telling the truth. We can change everything.

3) And if you thought The Universe & You was creepy... Yes, I feel protective towards you, even though I've never met you. I think about the Mall Girls and how I'd have given them something to think about. I would probably be willing to stand between you & whatever was headed your way. You seem to need someone(s) to watch out for you, someone(s) who can stand up to you enough to make sure you get rest and food and relief from all you go through. When I heard this song for the first time, I felt that resonate through me. That kind of, "Wow, she could use someone like this in her life". I think we all could, honestly.

She's incredible, too

4) Out of the Sky - DJ Lange feat. Sarah Howells. It's about a star fallen to earth.
I can't find an actual video for this... just still shots w/music. Ah well. This one has a slide-show at least

5) And even though it's not your name... Dear Prudence by Siouxsie & the Banshees. I think Prudence likes sunflowers.
This is probably the best quality video I could find... Gods, I feel very old.
Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play
Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day
The sun is up, the sky is blue
It's beautiful and so are you
Dear Prudence won't you come out and play

Dear Prudence open up your eyes
Dear Prudence see the sunny skies
The wind is low the birds will sing
that you are part of everything
Dear Prudence won't you open up your eyes?

Look around round
Look around round round
Look around

Dear Prudence let me see you smile
Dear Prudence like a little child
The clouds will be a daisy chain
So let me see you smile again
Dear Prudence won't you let me see you smile?
