Old Lyrics - Over

Over

Highway mofos
Dying to be the one
Cover me in education
I've got videos of you
You're the buried not forgotten one

Approach the gates of you
The place I left the papers
"Ticket please," I'm asked
Like Disney World to get a view
A view of what is left
Of you

They wanted to put you down
I wanted to spread you out
Save the DNA
Someday re-create

Torment those all around
The prettiest face is lost
One hole through a lung
Another hole through a life
Torment me with a view

Approach the gates with a ticket again

They wanted to put you down
I stole you and spread you out
Save the DNA
Enough to procreate.

This movie is a lot of fun. A semi-mockumantary on a drummer's struggles with cancer.
How can that possibly be "fun"? Come and check it out Saturday to see!

Old Lyrics - The Only One

THE ONLY ONE

Brother,
I’ve known you my whole life.
Brother,
That isn’t very long.
My brother,
18 years together.
Brother,
We had 20 lifetimes of fun.

And even during the bad you made it seen less stressing
You are my brother, the only one.

The only one I’ll ever have,
The only one.
The only one Ill ever have,
The only one.

Pinxit! and The Works of Cathy Michanczyk - OpeningTonite!

Paris in Plantsville Gallery and Studio is pleased to announce the opening of "Pinxit: New Works by Sean Michanczyk & Eric Stegmaier", and "The Works of Cathy Michanczyk"on view from April 14 to May 1, 2012.

About the Artists:

Sean Michanczyk is a 2008 graduate of the Hartford Art School ( BFA illustration ). His work pays homage to old masters while keeping a contemporary trompe l’oeil edge. His tightly rendered paintings and keen sense of balance create harmonious story telling through symbolism. “ What it is, isn’t always what it is”.

Sean is the owner and founder of Paris In Plantsville Gallery & Studio. He and his Great Dane aptly named Paris reside in Southington, CT

Eric Stegmaier is a 2002 graduate of the Hartford Art School (BFA illustration) and a 2007 graduate of Sacred Heart University (MA religious studies). His work harmonizes tightly rendered and loosely gestural strokes, allowing him to direct the viewer’s eye not only through compositional placement, but also by selective detail.

Eric is an artist in residence at Paris in Plantsville and is the Senior Conservation Assistant in the Paintings Department at the Yale Center for British Art. He and his wife Heather currently reside in Southington, CT.

Cathy Michanczyk is a Southington Native, currently living in Plantsville. Her works are a mix of still life, landscapes, and wonderful portraits of cats in oils, acrylics, and pencil. Cathy has been on the Connecticut art scene since the early 1970's and has exhibited all over the state. We're proud to have Cathy in April to kick off our new gallery space as we expand Paris In Plantsville.

For more information on the opening please use this link to our Event Page on Facebook.

We look forward to seeing everyone Saturday night!

Old Lyrics - Her Name Is Sleepy

Her Name Is Sleepy

Sleep? What is that?
I dream awake, Sleepy
Living in a dream,
Sleepy

Little pills, I took your advise
Shouldn't drink, you are my vice
Found my mattress, Sleepy.

Morning? It doesn't matter anymore
It all runs together, Sleepy.
Eyes open for over a week
Sleepy, help me.

Little pills, come to my mouth
Swallow down, and find a pillow
You're waiting there, laughing,
Sleepy

The Maxx


Haven't thought about this comic book or show in YEARS... Stumbled upon the DVD on Amazon a few months ago, bought it, and have probably watched a dozen time since... This broke doors down in animation, and I forgot how cool it was too...

Now I wanna go back and find all the old comics!

Old Lyrics - Jade

JADE

ARE YOU SOMETIMES DOWN, AND YOU DON’T KNOW WHY?
WELL, I’VE BEEN THERE JADE.
WHEN YOU GET REAL TIRED OF PLAYING ALL THEIR GAMES
WILL YOU DANCE WITH ME, JADE?

YOU KNOW I CAN SEE WHERE YOU’RE COMING FROM.
YOU SAY I’M
CRAZY, BUT HOW WOULD YOU KNOW?

GET UP AND DANCE, ABOVE THE LOVERS.
I’VE DONE IT JADE, SO CAN YOU.
DON’T WORRY ABOUT WHAT YOUR NEIGHBORS THINK.
JUST YOU DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU.

YOU KNOW I CAN SEE WHERE YOU’RE COMING FROM.
YOU SAY I’M
CRAZY, BUT HOW WOULD YOU KNOW?

SO IF YOU GET DOWN, SO LOW DOWN,
AND YOU CAN’T FIND ME, JADE.
JUST REACH TO THE SKY, LOOK FOR ME.
I’LL GRAB YOU.
AND BRING YOU RIGHT TO ME.

YOU KNOW I CAN SEE WHERE YOU’RE COMING FROM.
YOU SAY I’M
CRAZY, BUT HOW WOULD YOU…
HOW WOULD YOU KNOW.

THIS ONE’S NOT FOR THE LOVERS,
THIS ONE’S FOR YOU JADE.
