song of the day 11/16

my favorite new show of the season is showtime’s the big c. i am a huge laura linney fan; i’m no film snob or acting expert, but i do think she plays every role with an extraordinary amount of grace and conviction.

when i first saw the trailer for this show, i figured it would be a dark, raunchy comedy, much like its predecessor, weeds. (i have nothing against this genre; in fact, i think it’s fantastic.) i think it lost some juice somewhere in the middle, but, the past two weeks have completely blown me away. i have literally bawled my eyes out. especially last night’s episode, thanks to the perfect pairing of a heartfelt scene that showed the emotional vulnerability of a teenage son and a sia song. (i’d like to point out that sia is one of those artists that all of us know of and may own one or two song but have probably never invested the time or energy to figure who who she really is. i just listened to some snippets of her newest album, and i am buying it asap.)
