Just Like Tim Thumb's Blues

Thanks to Follower Tim Ellis who has filled in some missing suspects on the LC reference post:

"No longer angry,no longer young

No longer driven to distraction,
Not even by Scarlett Johansson"

LC Woman in a bar (Antidepressant)

Scarlett Johansson (1984-)

Actress, model and singer
Note worthy work:(obviously my opinion)

Ghost world
lost in translation
Vicki Christina Barcelona
match point

Bob Dylan sang on Just like Tom Thumb's Blues from Highway 61 revisited

"When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
 And they really make a mess outa you."

LC sang on Tell your sister  from Don't get weird on me babe
"why don't you come down
soil your pretty feet on the dirty
ground of rue morgue avenue"

Rue Morgue is generally considered to first appear in Edgar Allan-Poe's work
The Murders in Rue Morgue and Poe appears elsewhere in Dylan's work as well as the beatles
I am the Walrus

And here are a couple that came to me after the post........

"Hey sean could you mosey on down to our gala ball
It reads mister maddonna kicks some beat poetry"
LC from Sean Penn Blues from Mainstream
LC had reportedly read an article where Penn had revisted one of his old Educational facilities
and had been heckled whilst reading his poetry.
Incendently LC visted one of his old schools recently during his UK tour
details of which can be found at this link: Back to school

Sean Penn (1960 -)
Actor, screenwriter, director, political/social activist, one time Mr. Madonna
Genius piece of work?  ....Arguably playing the Lawyer in Carlitto's Way

"My beautiful launderette is my beautiful escape" sings LC during the instrumental section of Mr.Malcontent from Mainstream
1980's british social drama directed by Stephen Frears and an early starring role for Daniel Day Lewis
Not sure what the relevance was in the context of the rest of this song..maybe someone can enlighten us.


  1. And another from your friendly neighbourhood Tim...

    The song "Speedboat" by Lloyd Cole and the Commotions refers to the film in the lines "Jules said to Jim, 'Why don't we jump in,/ While the water's clean and we are still friends?'"

  2. Did you mention this?

    Can't you find me some George Jones on your radio

    (to the Church...)

    and like you I don't quite understand how My Beautiful Laundrette fits in with mr. Malcontent

    and a question from me:

    These days the line-
    Mr Anderton will lead you to it
    He says

    What is Mr Anderton?
