American links for the 4th of July

Leave a comment

It’s Independence Day! I don’t have any 4th of July traditions that can be transferred to Norway (I doubt there will fireworks or lobster today), but I might buy myself some Ben&Jerry’s.

Suggested soundtrack: Scarlet’s Walk, Tori Amos’ album about America. According to Neil Gaiman: "The CD’s about America — it’s a story that’s also a journey, that begins in LA and crosses the country, slowly heading east." It’s on Spotify. This is also the album with one of Tori Amos’ most well-known songs, A Sorta Fairytale, with a weird and wonderful music video.
