    今天是除夕了,想到你在遠方用功,努力,我心里說不盡的歡喜。別了,孩了,我在心中擁抱你!性生活心得 性爱姿势 前幾天我著急過津浦線上情形,後來我急過“晉北”的情形——那時還是真正的“晉北”——由大營道繁峙代縣,雁門朔縣寧武原平崞縣忻縣一帶路,我們是熟極的,陽明堡以北到大同的公路更是有過老朋友交情,那一帶的防御在盧變以後一星期中我們所知道的等于是“雞蛋”。我就不信後來趕得及怎樣“了不起”的防御工作,老西兒(指閻錫山)的軍隊更是軟懦到萬分見不得風的,怎不叫我跳急到萬分?好在現在情形已又不同了,謝老天爺,但是看戰報的熱情是罪過的。如果我們再按緊一點事實的想象︰天這樣冷……(就不說別的!!)戰士們在怎樣的一個情形下活著或死去!三個月以前,我們在那邊已穿過棉!所以一天到晚,我真不知想什麼好,後方的熱情是罪過,不熱情的話不更是罪過?二哥,你想,我們該怎樣地活著才有法子安頓這一副還未死透的良心? 做爱指导 三月十二日寫完 Following quickly on the heels of the spacey, artful U.F.O.F. -- by five months, to be exact -- Big Thief's fourth long-player, Two Hands, was recorded just days after its contrasting sister album. However, while U.F.O.F. was tracked at a wooded facility outside of Seattle, the band deliberately moved to the 100-plus-degree environs of a desert studio west of El Paso for Two Hands. The humid-versus-dry distinction makes for a convenient musical simile, as Two Hands commits to a crisper, more jagged sound on a rawer set of indie rock songs. Though less improvised-sounding on the whole than its predecessor, the loose Two Hands was recorded live with few overdubs by the same crew (producer Andrew Sarlo and engineer/mixer Dom Monks, though drummer James Krivchenia helped mix this time around). The album opens with "Rock and Sing," a short, lullaby-like introduction. Typically intimate lyrics from singer/songwriter Adrianne Lenker sound more stream of consciousness than composed on the track, with lines like "Hand me that cable/Plug into anything/I am unstable/Rock and sing, rock and sing." It's followed by catchier album highlight "Forgotten Eyes," which settles into the visceral, full-band folk-rock of Big Thief's earlier albums but with a distinctly immediate recording quality. (Though any such descriptions are relative in the case of this band.) Likewise living and breathing, the simmering "Not" has a slightly out-of-breath Lenker delivering near-constant lyrics alongside insistent drums, fuzzy guitar chords, and dissonant, impulsive guitar effects until the song breaks open into a sometimes-screeching jam just past the midway point. Other songs on Two Hands are memorable for different reasons, such as the quirkier guitar tones of the skittering "Two Hands," the folksy harmonies of "Replaced" (by guitarist/co-writer Buck Meek), and the stark tenderness of "Wolf" ("How you seem to follow through/On everything you yearn for"). While it's hard to talk about Two Hands in 2019 without the context of the stunning U.F.O.F., the album's quality stands on its own, offering its own grade of intimacy, sound, and feel for alternate moods.
