The Blower's Daughter

The song that has been stuck in my head constantly and playing on my iTunes incessently.


This Damien Rice song was playing at the end of the last episode of "The L Word" and is the first song in the trailer for the movie "Closer" (which guarantees to be the most pretentious movie ever, and I can't wait).

It might just be the best thing about the movie because I can't remember (since Jeff Buckley god rest his soul) the last time a song cut so hard into my soul...I can't take my mind of you...

Apparently, a "blower" is one who uses a telephone in Britian. Maybe the father works for the phone company.

I think that the "Blower's Daughter" is quite literal and refers to a glass blower's daughter. I think that it is perfect for the movie "Closer" because Jane Jones is just a stripper. It's one profession that many people still look down upon, much like a glass blower's daughter in ages past.

She doesn't know why she is loved, she has nothing, she needs nothing, but she knows how to love and she will give that fully and when she is loved she believes she is loved fully and truly. She is blinded to what her calling is whether it is a life time of blowing glass or blowing her life naked for a slew of hungry lusting men.
