so near and yet so far

Tulip Sweet & Her Trail of Tears sang a fantastic cover of what I now know is the Starlight Children's Choir singing "So Near and Yet So Far" off of the E.T. I LOVE YOU & Other Extra-Terrestrial Songs for Children. When I was in Los Angeles a few weeks ago the song came up in rotation on a mix and I jotted down the name. Upon looking for the song or some sort of footage I only found some nerdy bloggers writing about it. However, you can download the entire album which is pretty intense, but worth skimming. BUT "So Near and Yet So Far" is a jam, you just may not realize it at first. Listen to it twice.

You should fall into these film poster paintings from Ghana. I got the book "Extreme Canvas: Movie Poster Paintings from Ghana" when I was in LA about them, but this guy has a bunch that aren't in that collection on his blog (which is totally ruling btw). Here are some of my picks:
