Artist of the Week

I stumbled upon this artist and love all of his/her stuff...only problem is, he/she is yet to be identified...if anyone knows who does these enticingly kick-ass paintings let me know.

On a lighter note

This song has put a smile on my face unconditionally for the past three years, everytime, without fail.

Ignorance is Bliss

If you're fed enough lies your entire life, sooner or later they come spilling out of your own mouth. I don't want to be that person always on the defensive. I want to trust people like a little kid will believe white lies from their parents to keep them from getting hurt. I try to maintain my integrity and pretty much wear my heart on my sleeve. I just wish everyone and everything was exactly what it seemed.

True Story

My father is completely out of his mind. Not just the way I say my mom is crazy when she's being annoying; he's that delusional, paranoid, never going to get better because he's lost in his own mind kind of crazy. For the longest time I denied this was possible. I've been angry with him because I felt like he did it to himself by using grody drugs when I was in highschool, like somehow he fried his brain. And I've always been sick of hearing about the trouble he goes through. His "woe is me" attitude and his complete lack of motivation I've always felt has been something he chose for himself. No matter how much shit I've gone through in my own life I choose to suck it up, walk it the fuck off, and just BE HAPPY.

Untill now, when he's in the hospital for his mind, submitting his brain to shock therapy, I realize that this is really something he can't control. I've tried so hard to cheer him up and fix his tortured soul, but i'm convinced it's impossible. I feel horrible for being so angry with him the way I've always been, and being embarrased to tell my friends about it.

It gives me a whole new appreciation for having such a sound mind, and not letting the little things in life get me down. True Story: my father is crazy, and I am not, but I love him anyway.

Everyday I wake up I ask myself why I'm still in the place where I was born and raised. I have lived within the same 200 mile radius all of my life....ew. I can't wait till I experience new things, and just go. Whether it's getting to where I'm going or if it's just a breif horrible lapse, it's something different. I don't know where I'm going to end up, but I do know it's not here. South Florida is not my destiny. I can't believe I was almost that girl.

The Fail-Proof Decision Making Plan

I'm faced with a crossroads-a big fucking decision that I don't want to make. I would love for someone greater to make the choice for me, say "This is the best situation for you", and send me on my way. But that would be too easy, and that wouldn't be my life, now would it? I need to choose between California and Florida within the next 2 weeks.

So, naturally I am using the course of action that experts have put major decisions on for thousands of years (or at least since we've had currency),
I am flipping a coin.
This is what I've got, so far:

To be continued.

Dear Taylor Momsen and Alexa Chung,
You are my fashion icons at the moment. Alexa, I like your musical taste. Taylor, you can sing but your band kinda sucks in general.
But thanks for dressing so freakin cute!

I want to go here at night.

Mind Warp

There is no one in this whole wide world that should make you feel like anything less of amazing. The ideas another person puts in your head should be emptied daily and burned with yesterday's trash. Learn to stand on your own and fight for your mind, and one day someone somewhere will see how fucking ridiculously intruiging you really are.

Henry Rollins

I usually think he's an over-arrogant self-righteous D-Bag, but I appreciated this.

Star light, Star bright

It's almost time for me to leave. A month ago I couldn't wait. Now I can't help but wish I could pack you up and take you with me.

Asking you to wait for me would be unfair, but if I'm really lucky, if all the stars line up and for once in my life I get this outrageous stroke of luck, it will come naturally to you.

I'm crossing my fingers.

True Believer for Life

The Bouncing Souls' new album Ghosts on the Boardwalk is a little soft for the usual hardcore punkers that might prefer a little more oldschool versions of them like Maniacal Laughter or The Bad, the Worse, and the Out of Print. They've definately been facing harsh scrutiny from their fans ever since The Gold Record came out. If you want "Mommy, Can I go out and Kill Tonight?", listen to their old albums. I'll take them both, because the truth is they are doing what every good band eventually does- they get old and mature. They are no longer having a "Party at 174" or wondering "who's gonna throw the toilet off the roof?" They are falling in love and reflecting on the past with nostalgia and serenity.

It makes me wonder when I'll ever hit that mark, when everything seems to fall into place.

i will never lay down without a fight.

I know I've posted this before, but it was a different video, it was before I saw them live, and I really like this song.

For the Love of Lazy Moon

Thao Nguyen & the Get Down Stay Down.....the nostalgia of 2007-2009, when Tim Brown, the owner of Lazy Moon, made me this CD. I still get chills when I listen to Thao. It takes me back to one summer when it was stuck in my cd player, my slip-ons had pizza dough caked into the bottom of them, I spent all of my free time at the mini-ramp at my friend's house on Rouse falling down, or in the water at every lake in Orlando, including The Projects. My biggest concern was choosing what my free shift beer would be when I got off at the Moon, whether or not my friends would win their wakeskating competition that weekend, and who was driving to Eye Spy/BBQ bar on Thursday and Saturday nights. Lazy Moon will always have a place in my heart for enforcing the fact that little anti-corporate art & music-infused places still exist. If you are ever in Orlando stop by, ask for Tim Brown or Matt Griffis, and tell them Kenny Champagne could never be replaced by a dough machine.

Old School Meets New School

One of my new drawing obsessions: Molotov Cocktails...I haven't decided if I want to add color to anything lately. I think I dig the rough black outlines more.

Good Spirits

Meet my new 8tracks site...spreading the music straight from my ipod that inhabit my ears everyday...hope you like what I have to offer.

Various Songs (live in Brooklyn)

Various Songs (live in Brooklyn)

I saw this go down, in person, in Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Bowl, and might I say it was spectacular.

Where Did You Come From?

I realize now why I couldn't quite get myself to truely like you. This whole time I was saving that for someone else, someone amazing.

When you realize you don't really need anyone but yourself, but there may be some people you want around- that's when you grow up.
