When I Grow Up......

I wanna be just like Sally O' Malley


Follow Me!!

Come follow me on Twitter......updates, thoughts, classes, projects, randomness.....

Do yourself a favor.....

set yourself "Free".....

WOW......

guys, seriously i dont know if i have the words to describe this album...

i ABSOLUTELY LOVED his first album and the stripped version of it....still do!

second album......hmmmm...didnt get it, never appealed to me...

third album.....i'm literally sitting here with NO words...trying desperately to think....nothing....i sit listening to it eyes closed, feeling it, shaking my head, sometimes singing along...loudly.......think Stevie Wonder.....you know when he gets into it and starts moving his head.....yeah thats how i get.  sometimes i just sigh..

his lyrics are incredible, honest, revealing, bittersweet, passionate, real

now i literally have this album on repeat throughout my day....morning, day, night.....yes, even falling asleep....

BUT.....i do have my favorites....3,6,8....yes i know the numbers

STAY - the opening line kill me dead!....this man has a way of making you feel whatever he is feeling...so honest, so painful ....i sing out LOUD to this one......sorry neighbors

LOVER BE STRONG - another sing out loud tune....lyrics, music, voice....DEAD....his stories in his songs.......sigh

WATERFALL - ok.....now i can't really explain what this song does to me...it's not appropriate....hahahaha...But, seriously...it's not...it definitely takes me someplace.....i have this on repeat at bedtime

Its really hard to choose favorites as the entire album is INCREDIBLE...it always amazes me when an artist can have an album in which every song is GREAT...wait, why are you still reading this?.......go get it!!!! haha!

P.S. sooooooooooooooooooo bummed i missed him on concert....






OHHHHH SHNAP..... CHRISTMAS TUEDAYS!!!!!


AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!........the day has come everyone....blackberry has finally unleashed their brand spankin new APP WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!  I'm soooooo freeking excited.........i was always a little envious.....ok, ok......a lot envious of my friends with their i-phones and all the awesome features however, would not give in and get one because.............

ready for it??......

THE SERVICE SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....

I am so excited for all blackberry users and all those i-phone users that will soon be converting to the Family of Berries......hee hee

so far....being the music lover i am....i have downloaded: 

PANDORA.....amazing website, soooooo excited to have this on my phone.....its basically a radio that plays music according to your likes and dislikes in music.  ITS AMAZING!!!!...try it out!!!! pandora.com

SHAZAM.....now this is one of those things i was jealous of on the i-phone......when you hear a song on the radio, at a store, over dinner, in the bathroom, at a club....you get the point.....you launch this app and it FREEKING tells you what song it is!!!!!!!....even has links to purchase it.....this will definitely come in handy.....

OH SHNAP.......

Tuesday Mar 10 - CHRISTMAS

so santa has been leaving a few stocking stuffers in the past few weeks...

this Tuesday......oh boy!!!....talk about MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!



its like when your a kid and you see that big box and you just KNOW.....your heart is racing and you just can't wait to rip off the festive paper.....

i listened to the one preview clip the Yeah Yeah Yeahs had on their i-tunes before this Tuesday and it was exactly like that...you KNOW its gonna be something great....but YIKES....this turned out to be a DELICIOUS feast.....this album is the reason my ears are CARNIVORES!!!!!

how do i describe "It's A Blitz" by the yeah yeah yeahs?????

hmmmmmm!?!?!?!!?

here goes......

your wearing a pair of your favorite jeans that you havent washed......ever......shirt optional, hair greasy and messy........your easily moving along with the appetizing beats in a small room barely lit by candles, neon lights, and the moon peering in........your drinking a bottle of smooth red wine.....straight from the bottle.....wine drips from your mouth and mixes with the hot sweat on your body and falls to the wooden floor thats covered in blood red rose petals

its dirty
its beautiful

its a blitz




MILK......

does a body good!


its amazing to see the passion people lead in their lives!!!

i sat there, speechless, heart filled, no words

Ear CaNdY Vol.1

music my ears are eating  now....

"Sleepyhead" - Passion Pit
Downloaded this last week as a free download on i-tunes.......takes me to another world, first day i downloaded it, i listened to it on repeat for hours.....reminds me of the mice from Cinderella singing to me trying to wake me up......GET INTO IT!!

"She's Good For Business" - MSTRKRFT
i gotta shake it!!!.....pumps me up for my workouts...grrrrroovy baby!!

"Sex On Fire" - Kings of Leon
Windows Down, Air Guitar, Hot, Desperate, Wanting, Sweaty, Dirty, Delicious!!

"Rock With U" - Janet
Loved it last year, love it this year.....i'll start running into different rooms in the house dancing with friends (or by myself)...yeah, like the video....LOL!!!!

"These Doors" - Jonathan Levi
Mentioned his album earlier, still not over it....a good start of the day album, a good middle of the day album, a good end of the day album.....good for breathing and relaxing...and ALL the songs are great!

"Just Can't Get Enough" - Depeche Mode
I just really can't get enough.....step taps for days, with some slight awkward body rolls

"Star" - Estelle
Estelle freeking rocks it out with this one.....i LAHV her....her last album was fantastic....this song is one of those catchy fun dance in the shower songs....don't slip!!!

"Circus" - Britney Spears
There is something about the bridge of the song that gets me "I feel the adrenaline running through my veins...."  i really do start to feel it running through my veins....

"Chasing Pavements" - Adele
sigh.......

"Electric Feel (Justice Remix)" - MGMT
Hits SOOOOOO hard.....cannot NOT move and thrust my body to the freeking beats in this song!!!!

"Digital Love" - Daft Punk
You just wait for that beat to drop....and when it does........ITS OVER!!!!

"O...Saya" - AR Rahman & M.I.A.
An exhilirating song off of an INCREDIBLE soundtrack from an INCREDIBLE movie.....and M.I.A......c'mon now

"Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say) - Lady Gaga
Cherry Cherry Boom Boom...............GA GA.......nuff said!

One of.....

my ALL time FAVORITE music videos.....



BRILLIANT!!

this is one video i always wished i could've been in!!!!

DEAD!

Pua Party




P.S. I love my Canon!!
P.P.S. I love my sisters MORE!

IKEA.....sigh..

1. I'm extremely indecisive
2.IKEA is not a place for indecisive people
3.I love IKEA
4.I hate IKEA

So about a week ago i went to IKEA for the second time ever in my life........the first time i went was in Atlanta so i couldnt get anything because i wasnt living there!!...perfect, no decisions to make!

This time, i had a purpose, furnish my new apartment....specifically, my room!!!!

So with my mind set, i headed to IKEA.....WOW!....i remembered it from the first time, but when your actually looking for things, all of a sudden, there seems to be SO much!!!...PERFECT!

NOT!!!

I was so overwhelmed i had to leave, with nothing in hand....
NOTHING....
OVERWHELMED...
you think i'm joking....nope, i was literally overwhelmed....thinking "Gosh, where do i even start?"

This past weekend, i finally found my sheets (i know, i know...its been 2 months....i just knew what i wanted and couldnt find it) so i felt i had a better idea of what i was looking for......IKEA, round 3....3rd times a charm right????

I get there, optimistic, ready to shop!  I start making my round...and then another round....and then another round....yup, and another........"I'm starving"...i'm thinking this is my reason for not being able to make decisions....so i decide to try IKEA's food...swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes, and some red berry thing for $4.99......A-MAZING!!!!!...seriously De-LISH!  mmmmmm!!!! my stomach is filled, i've thought about the things i've seen, hopefully my mind will have fuel to make decisions...

Round 3 1/2......i begin making another round at the beginning of the store, i get to the bed frame i was looking at.... 
"Ooohhh, what's that bed frame over there???" 
"Oh great Mark, i thought we decided over this one at dinner?"
"i KNOW, but this might be cute too!!"
"you know what!?!?!?!....your driving me crazy!!"  
"i KNOW, i'm sorry, there's just so much, PLEASE be patient!" 
"i've BEEN patient for the last 2 hours" ..... "AAAHHHHH, your driving me crazy" 
"NO! your driving me crazy"
"FINE! i'll get the one i said i was gonna get!"
"FINE!"  
(yes, this is just me, i can't shop with others......my mind is enough)

So i start heading down to the warehouse, collecting other things in my shopping bag....lights, decorative things, tools, etc.....No, it wasnt that easy.....same decision making process with each thing!....And then i finally get to the bed frame to actually pick it up so i can purchase it.....yup you guessed it, i start thinking again...... 
"Is this really what you want?"
"Mark, I've had it!!!!!!"
...sigh...... i drop my shopping bag and exit the store.......3 1/2 hours later......
NOTHING in hand....
AGAIN!.....
EXHAUSTED!!!!!

It's not me, it's IKEA....there's too much there!!!.....
"No, its you!"

sigh..

GAGA!!!!!!!!!!


LOVE! LAHV! LOVE! LAHV!

OVER THE TOP!
CAMPY!
FASHION!
POP MUSIC!
DANCE!

WHAT'S THERE NOT TO LOVE?????

Seriously one of the BEST POP albums i've heard in a WHILE.....an album i can listen to from top to bottom!!! I know its been out for a minute but she has been KILLING it!!!...With her appearances and music videos lately (check out her recent videos "Eh, Eh" and "Lovegame")......GOSH!!!!! If your not into her yet...get into her, if your over her...get back in it!!! Ooohhhhh and check out her EP "The Cherrytree Sessions" on i-tunes...........GOOD STUFF!!!...good versions of some of her songs....

Some of my faves on her album....

-Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)....on both "The Fame" and "The Cherrytree Sessions"
-Pokerface
-Paparazzi
and my absolute FAV to this day.....lol.......

-JUST DANCE (yup still not over it...hee hee)

its sooooo hard to choose favorites!!!! grrrrr!!

Cherry Cherry BOOM BOOM.........gaga!

Perfection!


One of my absolute favorite foods of all time happens to be the simplest!!!!....

PB& J........mmmmm....sooooo ONO!

Just when i thought these fun comforting sandwiches couldnt get any better, i decide to take a trip to Trader Joe's.....one of my FAVORITE places to shop....and decide to try new peanut butter......yikes, leaving Skippy, should i? should i not?.....ahhhh, such tough decisions in life... "Alright Mark, calm down"..... "But what if i dont like it?" .... "Then you can get the one you ALWAYS get!" ... "Ok, thanks" .... so i decide to try......drumroll please..... Trader Joe's Unsalted Crunchy Peanut Butter!!!!

i get home and immediately want to try this as i am a bit hesitant with a new brand......

WOW! can i just say it is heaven....SOOOOOO thick and creamy!!! it is absolute deliciousness in your mouth!....YES! you can eat it by itself.....BELIEVE ME!!!  But in a PB&J......my goodness....one of the best PB&J's...and i've experienced MANY PB&J's in my years of living.

So for now i'm sticking with it......wheat bread, trader joe's unsalted crunchy peanut butter, strawberry jelly (sometimes grape)....a little more peanut butter than jelly! :)

DELISH! :P
How do you like it?

I'm in another music video.....apparently!! ;)



hi!

So..... a while ago my friend wrote to me saying i HAD to check out this video.....there was a guy in the video who reminded him of me....in the way he danced!

So....i go check it out......OH MY GOSH!!!....i cannot even tell you! This is exactly how i look when i hear good music and feel comfortable.....in the car, at home, in the street, at a club, in the shower.......i just move....ridiculous or not....just move!!!! 

Check it out!!!!....i actually REALLY like the song and the video....AND....the dance break KILLS me!!! (in a good way!)  cant wait till they release their album in the U.S.!!!!!

TUESDAY FEB 10 - CHRISTMAS!!!


Tuesday's are like Christmas......any tuesday.....it could be in May, October, even in December...hee hee

Let me explain......i'm a huge fan of music.....although that really is an understatement.....i mean REALLY HUGE!!!  So some of you may know....tuesday's are the day where new music is released, God, i LAHV this day.....i will stay up late Monday night/early Tuesday morning just to be able to listen to all the new music that comes out on i-tunes......i also LAHV i-tunes, which also is an understatement... some Christmas's are FANTASTIC and some are just ok........But its always the excitement to see whats coming out that make Christmas Tuesdays so much fun!!!  I'm like an excited spastic dog......yeah, i just might pee!!!! (but thats only when there's an album i'm really looking forward to....hee hee)

So when i did my usual i-tunes new music search, guess who has a new album?????  i knew she was coming out with one, just didnt know it was so soon........

India FREEKING Arie.........God, i LAHV this woman.....an artist!!!! (to say the least)  She's kind of like Mr.Kombucha.....but in music form, yeah all that insight and goodness, but in music form.....yeah i know, exciting!!!  Anyway, its her 4th album......i think!?!?!  It's entitled Testimony, Vol 2:Love & Politics, I have NEVER been disappointed with anyone of her albums!!!  I'm downloading the 4th one as we speak.....you should check it out, it sounds a-mazing!!!

Santa left a good one this week!!!  :) pee

Today's goodness from Mr.KOMBUCHA....yes the tea!


Good Morning Fellows.....having my usual cup of Kombucha.....here's what Mr. Kombucha has to say today.....


"When you know that all is light, you are enlightened"

God, how can you not love this tea????

By the way, that panda up there......yeah, he's Mr.Kombucha....i imagine him to be a panda for some reason.....he's very insightful!!!!

Slumdog Millionaire


Raw

Brilliant

Disturbing

Touching

Powerful

Amazing Soundtrack

i lahv M.I.A.........LAHV!!!

good date movie.....good date ;)

SEE IT!!!!!!!!

Jonathan Levi - These Doors


Been listening to this album.......EVERYDAY!!!

its A-MAZING!!!!

beautiful lyrics, easy music to listen to over and over....believe me, i just put the whole album on repeat

check it out on i-tunes or check out his website jonathanlevimusic.com

your ears will be happy :)

blackOUT-ing!!!





when i was back at home in Hawaii, there was a blackout (pretty much statewide....i'll just say statewide....sounds better...hee hee) anyway the entire state was dark except for the flicker of candlelight in people's windows or the random headlights from a passing car......

it was oddly arousing....it might have to do with my slight fascination to vampires (thanks to the twilight series) anyway i was sooooo excited!!!!!!  i love when things like this happen....i just couldnt stay home!!!! COULDNT!!!!!  so what else do you do?  

grab your sister and a camera and head to the beach to take fun jumping pics silly!!!!!!!

Q R S Tea U V


Lately I've been a complete tea freak...i mean i've always liked a cup of tea here and there but Yogi tea's Kombucha Green Tea has turned me into an addict!!  Lately i'll have 2-3 cups of tea daily!!!!!  I'll mix it up, chamomile, detox, mint, etc.......but kombucha takes the prize...God i lahv it!  And what makes it special is that the lil paper that is attached to the tea bag always has a message on it....sorta like a fortune cookie, but not really a fortune, just some goodness for your day!  Today's message:

"Have wisdom in your actions and faith in your merits"

Good advice and good antioxidants!!!!  

Good stuff in, bad stuff out!!  :)
