I don't know what it is, but I awoke today at 6:30am (very unusual for me) feeling more comfortable in my skin than I have in a very long time. In who I am, my decisions, successes and failures. My karma is so fucking clean I can almost feel it coming around. I know that I've never done anything to purposely hurt anyone else. I know that I've always been there for everyone I care for. It's been a long time comin' but a change is gonna come. This feeling could easily crumble, I'm sure, but I'm running with it for now.
Been a while, but I wanted to share this great new album with you. Click and listen. Purchase it if you're so inclined. Support indie artists. Especially those that are good at their craft.
Casey recorded a beautiful version of "Man In The Mirror" as a tribute to Michael Jackson and his impact on music and culture. Click the link and give it a listen. It's worth mentioning that Casey did this all by himself in his home studio. Everything you hear, including the gospel choir, is by Casey. He recorded about 100 vocal parts for this. WOW...check it out!
I haven't really posted much as of late but I feel compelled to post this. In light of the sad news of Farrah's passing I am thinking about my LJ friend scream4noreason because I know this is a very profound loss for him. I'm so sorry, Christopher. Farrah will now be a real angel. Thoughts and prayers to Ryan O'neal and the rest of her family, friends, and fans.
Been a rough one but I've learned to take the good with the bad.
I just signed online and was surprised by the sad news that Eartha Kitt has died at 81. Eartha Kitt was born to be a star and in true star fashion she took her last bow on Christmas!!
I just got home from celebrating Noche Buena at my parents. Noche Buena, the Good Night, is when we Cubans generally celebrate the Christmas holiday. Sitting here catching up on online crap, I came upon my beloved Patti Smith's blog. Her entry caught my attention. It's been a tough year for most and Patti, as usual, has a wonderful way of putting things in perspective. I shall reprint her entry here. These words are hers, not mine, and reprinted with no permission. I doubt she would mind.
Odetta is gone. Another beautiful voice silenced. Sad.
