I"m listening to Tori's last two albums which i had recently ignored. Its just an older sound. Easy Listening Tori. LP's mother loves The Beekeeper. It makes sense, Tori is in her early 40's, has a child, a husband and with the exception of hurricane season her life is fairly uneventful. I feel like i'm on the down slope of quite an event and the music is suddenly comforting. Country music in the 70s became popular for that same reason. Sick of the trials and tribulations of the political sixties so they look to simpler times.. "Take it easy". I guess i know wish i was middleaged married and mothered.. well and outrageously talented. Its a nice perk..
I was watching Under the Tuscan Sun today and Francis discusses the Virgin Mary in terms of her favorite Aunt Mary who is always around reminding us that things will go on as they have before. The Beekeeper is inspired by The Secret Life of Bees which is about the black madonna. Even Margaret Atwood admits that if she converts to any religion it would be catholicism because of the Virgin Mary. The divine mother. I think its just comforting to think that God has a mother. I mean it seems that a woman can birth greatness but greatness can't exist with out a mother. I feel a mother is a much more comfortable idea for a being that is eternal. Your mother was there before you were born and even after she dies her words, her values, her mothering will forever reside in you. This is totally sexist to even think. I'm comfortable with God being a man, but I just don't think he could do it alone. Tori sings "God, sometimes you just don't come through. Do you need a woman to look after you?" I guess for the most part religion is partriarchal so i'm probably just holding on to any significant female figure for relation. Its hard to look at christ and see that he's there for you, he doesn't know the first thing about me.
LP told me last weekend that she thought that we were Karma Police.
This is what you get when you mess with us,
