If you haven't heard of Melissa Ferrick and you are into acoustic folk/rock music you should consider giving her a shot =)
My mom's in one of those bitchy moods again. It sucks. She gets like this every now and then, and it's really annoying b/c she basically blames everything on me and my sis, and makes me fix/move/clean it up >:o

(this is a long post btw, so click on that little read more thingy! :D)
i had a really good day today.
I love this band Otep. The woman who fronts the band, Otep Shamaya, is awesome, outspoken, cool...and she's gay! Haha, not that that's why I like her...Seriously though, she's just got a crazy singing voice. This is their new song which I love:
Title fairly self-explanatory. I'll expand it to love songs, bands, genres (especially if it's not particularly popular), ballads, favorite live show, most underrated music genius ever, etc.
It's the end of the semester celebration. There's music and the lights are off...
So ya. I'm with my friend T (the guy who I'm going to the ball with as a friend).
So ya. I'm going to Taco Bell in a minute:
-cheesy potatoes-bean burrito-mexican pizza -quesadilla (only a couple of these)
T wants to dance.
You're so endearing, you're so beautiful,
Well I don't look like they do, and I don't love like they do
But I don't hate like they do
Am I ever on your mind?
Oh, Thank God for music! Sometimes I'm not too sure what I'd without it. It makes a super crappy afternoon better. In other related news I'm getting Really into the band Otep. Which is surprising because I don't usually like Heavy Metal. I prefer Hard Rock to screaming and that. lol. But they are really cool and they've got some not-so-hard-songs which is really awesome.
So I accidentally posted my thingy ma jig as a forum topic. Whoopsydaisy! oh wells. how's peeps around here? i miss every1. i have problems. im sorry im such a bitch. its not in my nature to be such a bitch. but whatev. hope all is well wherever u at! so ya. i didn't get to see sunshine cleaning last night. huge disappointment. but oh well. it happens. n if ur not listening to it download (legally pls) uh huh her's common reaction. i was bad n i was a pirate but im trying to change my ways. and also check out this hott chick on myspace: http://www.myspace.com/dallasmariespitzer. thnx bunches.
I was listening to My World by the Sick Puppies (great song, if you haven't listened to it, do. Also their song All The Same) and realized, this describes some of my life, but not all of it. (I Don't Care by Apocolyptica might be a better choice). So, what song do youthink describes you?
I grin as the first chords of the new Indigo Girls album echo in my room, meeting the sunshine and dancing. The song is Digging for Your Dreams. It takes me a few days after getting Poseidon and The Bitter Bug to learn the words, but the music is so beautiful, and their harmonies are breathtaking.
The Indigo Girls, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray, play an eclectic mix of folk and country. I own 10 of their albums, and iTunes seems to have a different genre listing for each of them. Some are rock, some folk, others country, or alternative, or even pop.
Over the next week, I listen to nothing but the new album.
There is a melancholy air to the songs, as many of them are about looking back and finding mistakes.
Semi Precious Weapons have provided the soundtrack to my life for more than a year now, when I first heard their single "Magnetic Baby" after Perez Hilton loved the track and posted it on his site.
Finally, the band is out touring the country on their debut album, "We Love You," which is an amazing collection of garage glam gems that show how much talent is behind the first impressions you might get based on seeing Justin Tranter, the band's lead singer. He tends to like his eyes lined, his hair platinum blonde, and his heels high.
Before the band's recent in-store gig at the Apple Store in San Francisco, Tranter and I headed over to a quiet tea place to do the interview. While Market Street lined with people in advance of the St. Patrick's Day parade, Tranter and I weaved through the crowd. You could see people checking him out in his ripped T-shirt, suit coat, heavy-eyelined eyes, black and grey striped panty hose, and high, high heels the whole way there.
But Tranter was just a delight to talk to, and a great performer a half hour after we spoke. I even got to sing one of the "I've been magnetic since I was a baby" lines when he held the mic in my face.
We chatted about the band, labels (both the record kind and the sexuality kind), the music scene, Nirvana, Pink Floyd, Lady Gaga, jewelry, and a lot of other topics over a quiet lunch. Here's what we said:
I'm curious as to what everyone's favourite love songs are.
Plus I'm attempting to put together a fan music video for basically my favourite TV couple ever....and I can't seem to find The Perfect song for it.
So what are your favourite love songs of all time or just recent songs you really like?
I think this is an awesome song about the ridiculous of religion and the people that preach it. I'd say give the video/song a chance:
Love. This. Song.
LOVE the song Not A Love Song by Uh Huh her!! And the minute I listened to it I had to download it :P Yup, it's the band that has Leisha Hailey(The woman who plays Alice on The L Word) in it, Hehe. Yeah, that was the main reason I gave their music a try :P
"I see I disappoint you
Why don't you find another threat?"
Love those lyrics.
Plus I love the woman who does the actual singing she has an awesome voice :D
It is *so* nice to reconnect with my old music, my old friends, old partners. It feels like I've been in this other world; and it's good to know that there are things and people that will pull me back to my own. I'm talking to a high school ex, and something feels at home... 'right.' Not the sickening "let's get together and have babies kind of right." Just the... they knew me with different labels and identities, these people... and yet they still knew just me; it's nice to be in a comfortable context, and yet a different one. It's calming. *love*

So. I'm a composition nerd. I'm a choir nerd. I love choral music, and I love writing choral music. But unfortunately (despite also being a language nerd, so this really bugs me) I can't find or write choral texts for my life. So here's what I'm asking you guys: I need texts!
