For Christmas I got a new camera from my madre. I am just a little obsessed with it. I have been carrying it everywhere with me as of late and I wanted to share some of the pics I have taken with it. So here they are, lemme know what you think!:

Song of the day...


I am a huge fan of Lily Allen and her new single "The Fear" is awesome. I love it. It is a little explicit, but it's Lily Allen so that is to be expected. It has also been added the the playlist for the month so scroll to the bottom of the page and enjoy it. Here are the hilarious lyrics:



"The Fear"


I want to be rich and I want lots of money
I don’t care about clever I don’t care about funny
I want loads of clothes and f***loads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them

I’ll take my clothes off and it will be shameless
‘Cuz everyone knows that’s how you get famous
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track yeah I’m on to a winner

Chorus
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When we think it will all become clear
‘Cuz I’m being taken over by The Fear

Life’s about film stars and less about mothers
It’s all about fast cars and passing each other
But it doesn’t matter cause I’m packing plastic
and that’s what makes my life so f***ing fantastic

And I am a weapon of massive consumption
and its not my fault it’s how I’m program to function
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track yeah I’m on to a winner

Chorus
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When we think it will all become clear
‘Cuz I’m being taken over by The Fear

Bridge
Forget about guns and forget ammunition
Cause I’m killing them all on my own little mission
Now I’m not a saint but I’m not a sinner
Now everything is cool as long as I’m getting thinner

Chorus
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When we think it will all become clear
‘Cause I’m being taken over by fear

Youngme/Nowme


I came across an artsy blog called "Color Wars 2008", and with a headline reading "it's just like summer camp" then below stating "*not really", how could I resist looking around?!

They have several cool projects and things to show you on their page but by far my favorite thing (other than the headline) is a project called Youngme/Nowme.

I know that looks like Japanese but in reality it is just bad English. Read it slowly now...

"Young...Me...Now...Me..."

Basically the concept is this: they asked their readers to find a picture of them as a baby and then recreate the picture with themselves now. So their "now me" is mimicking their "young me"...is it all coming together now?

Anywho.

I think it is awesome and I encourage you to go take a look by clicking here.

Here are some of my favorite ones:























Oh and don't worry....mine is is in the works....

FoLK/DAK Drams...

As many of you might know I work at Disney World in Florida. Loves it. Good times.

Anywho.

As you may also know I do the High School Musical show at the Disney Studios on a pretty consistent basis. I also talk about it a lot as you can see from all the blogs I have posted concerning it. It's all I do with my time, what else am I gonna talk about?

Well, what many of you may NOT know is that I also know some other shows on property. One of which I do on a weekly (on Thursdays (which are my global sub days (that may or may not mean anything to you)) basis.

Yes everything Thursday I leave my life at the Hollywood Studios, hang up my Wildcat hoodie and trek over the the Animal Kingdom to do a show called The Festival Of The Lion King or FoLK for short (everything is an acronym around her cause we are way to lazy to finish our sente

So I am a stilt walker at FoLK and if you know me personally you know that I am not the biggest fan of the show. Stilts hurt my knees, I have no friends, the hours suck, the end.

But that, my friend, is for another blog. No, this blog is in fact about the DAK (Disney's Animal Kingdom) cast parking. One of my least favorite things about going to DAK is the cast member parking lot! I swear there is sorcery afoot in those lands! Everyday, I try to park my car in the same spot, so I can remember where I left it at the end of the day. But alas, 5:30 (or 10:30 according to when they decide to let us free) rolls around, I make the half mile journey back to the lot and my car is no where in sight!

I try to retrace my steps, look at the land marks, count the rows, and everytime there is no trace of it! I swear that parking lot is like hogwarts from Harry Potter or something. Everytime you leave the lot, all the cars switch places just for kicks. I wander the lot for 20 minutes, and then, suddenly it is right behind me, even though I JUST passed the space in is currently residing in.

And it is not just me either! Everyday I see Disney security gaurds drving some poor soul from row to row, searching desperatly for their vehicle. As I walk our eyes meet and I give them that look that says:

"I know how it is. Keep going, it'll turn up eventually."

So, moral of the story, if you are planning on parking in the DAK cast lot, heed my warning, and take a picture of where you parked.

The Next Big Thing...


I am here right now to tell you about someone amazing. I can almost guarantee that she is going to be huge in the music scene in the next five years. Her name is Janelle Monae and she is incredible. She is such a performer and has an amazing voice to back it up. Her music is so diverse and eclectic that I don't even know what genre to put her into!

My favorite song of her's is called "Sincerely, Jane". It is one of the songs currently rocking this blog. Not only in the music amazing but her lyrics are so poignant and deep as well. Her are the lyrics for "Sincerely, Jane" followed by the music video for "Many, Moons".

Remember, I told you first ;)

Sincerely, Jane

Left the city, my mama, she said don't come back home.
These kids round killing each other, they lost their minds, they gone.
They quitting school, making babies, and can barely read,
Some gone on to their fall,
Lord have mercy on them.

1,2,3,4, your cousin's here round here selling dope,
While they daddy, your uncle, is working round, strung out.
Babies with babies, and they just keep burning,
While their dreams go down the drain now.

(While their dreams go down the drain now)
Are we really living, or just walking dead now
(Are we walking dead now?)
Or dreaming of the hopes round in the wings of angels

The way we live, the way we die,
What a tragedy, I'm so terrified.
Daydreamers please wake up,
We can't sleep no more.

Love, don't make no sense,
Ask your neighbour,
The winds have changed, it seems,
That they've abandoned us.
The truth hurts, and so does yesterday
What good is love, if it burns bright explosion flames

(I thought every living thing had love, but are)
Are we really living, or just walking dead now.
(Are we walking dead now?)
Or dreaming of the hopes round in the wings of angels.

The way we live, the way we die,
What a tragedy, I'm so terrified.
Daydreamers please wake up,
We can't sleep no more.

I've seen them shooting up funerals in their sunday clothes (Ya!)
And spending money on spinners, but won't pay college funds (Ya!)
And all you gangers and bangers,
Rolling dice and taking lives in a smoky dark
Lord have mercy on them (Ya!)

Teacher, teacher, please reach those girls in them videos (Live your life)
The little girl's just broke, and queens's confusing bling for soul.
Danger, there's danger,
When you take off your clothes,
All your dreams go down the drain, girl.

Are we really living, or just walking dead now
Or dreaming of the hopes round in the wings of angels

The way we live, the way we die
What a tragedy, I'm so terrified
Daydreamers please wake up,
We can't sleep no more.

**Scratching Begins**
Lord have mercy
Have mercy
Have mercy
Lord have mercy
Are really living, or just walking dead now
Have mercy
**Scratching Ends**

We live, then we die,
And we never know, thats why
So young, now we're gone
Now are you gone?

We live, then we die,
But never touch the sky
So young, now we're gone
Now are you gone?

Spoken Section:
5,7,8,2,1.
Its now time for you to come home, my dear.
You've been gone long enough.
Thank you.
We must come, we must go.


"Many Moons"

Right Here, Right Now...


So Sarah's (my roomate) mom was in town for thanksgiving and filmed her in High School. It just so happened that Peter, our other roommate, and myself were in that particular show as well. It is the only time that we have ever done a show together!

It is a really good recording of the entire show and the cast that day was ON POINT. Fo Realz.

So for anyone who can't or hasn't seen the show, watch this version because it is good representation.

Part 1



Part 2




P.S. Here is a screen shot from the video when the three of us realized that we were standing together for the first time.

Clair De Lune


Right now, if I had to choose a song to represent my life in its current state I would choose the song that is currently playing on this blog. It is called "Clair De Lune" and it is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. I had heard it before but it wasn't until I heard it recently that it clicked so well with my life. I really encourage you all to listen to it and try to appreciate it. Because right now that song is me.

Does that make sense?

Anywho on an unrelated note I am sorry for the lack of postage. I have been uber stressed lately and when I get stressed, my blog is the first to suffer. But I am gonna try to be better

spotted xoxo


I think that only works for the Gossip Girl
