upside down stars.

I don't know how many of you will know this guy - but Ian Adams is a favourite Boston artist of mine, and this vid is a perfect stripped-down performance gem: just a man, a ukelele and a cellar. Magic in the making. (PS get this album: Stay Up Late. kthxbai)

God I love this song.. Ironic, yes. BUT this song does just that to me - makes me happy. As we speak I am dancing in place listening to this. Join me? 
Also - this post heralds in a new age of my crappery photos. I AM LEARNING HOW TO POSTPROCESS! I'm using paint.net cause it's free, and I'm really liking it. Quality program, for sure. I've just done some general softening etc, but am slowly edging my way into layers and brushes. Yay me!

ocean breathes salty.

For this look, I wanted a song that was haunting and surreal - and Modest Mouse is a band that so often holds both of those qualities. Plus? This song has been stuck in my mind for some days now. What better way to exorcise it than to use it to soundtrack my trip through Putrid's sims? I flitted around so much, wandering aimlessly, that I couldn't tell you which was taken where exactly, but go explore it for yourself. Also, the hair/skin is what inspired this very David Lynch/Helena Bonham Carter look (at least to me lol).

frost circus.

This is a very haunting instrumental from a band I've loved for the longest time (thanks to Eeka & Natas for making me dig 'em out again), and it so suits the surreal, slightly uneasy look I have going here. It was entirely inspired by the Dimbula Rose opening gift skin and this GORGEOUS hair from Rotten Toe. I love this hair! The motion, the softness around that face.. you might end up seeing in quite a few posts.

Ahhhh St. Patricks Day! I love this holiday so much. Being a girl from Providence RI, I spent most of my adult St Pat'ses trolling round Prov/Boston getting successively drunker and drunker as the pub crawl continued (and snogging irish boys in cramped pub corners but those stories are staying untold lol). I still do that.. (minus the irish boys *ahem*) but Vancouver doesn't do the day quite as well (as I am spoiled by my East Coast roots. Also ffs no DKM St Pat shows for 6 yrs in a row now *sadface*). I'm prolly gonna do a cpl of posts between today/tom. This song is one of my favourite Flogging Molly songs. You know you wanna bop around all goofy in green! I know I am.

baby blue.

Song For This Post: DMB - Baby Blue

Ah.. Day 45324543456 of this flu, I swear. I have reached the pathetic, achy and off-and-on weepy portion of this thing. I'm sad and melancholy and all I want is my mother's cool hand on my feverish forehead. She passed away on Feb 18th, 2008... So, this song means a lot to me. It's wrapped up with thoughts of her and thoughts of other special someones I have lost along the way. My outfit is essentially what I am wearing irl (and have been, frankly, for the past however long lol).
