A little Clexa love – The 100

January 23, 2016

So it has been a while, but I made a new fanvideo. I was testing out some new editing software and made this short one.

Fans of The 100, buckle in…

Concrete Angel

April 28, 2013

She walks to school with the lunch she packed
Nobody knows what she’s holdin’ back
Wearin’ the same dress she wore yesterday
She hides the bruises with linen and lace

The teacher wonders but she doesn’t ask
It’s hard to see the pain behind the mask
Bearing the burden of a secret storm
Sometimes she wishes she was never born

Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as a stone
In a world that she can’t rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where she’s loved
Concrete angel

Somebody cries in the middle of the night
The neighbors hear, but they turn out the lights
A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate
When morning comes it’ll be too late

Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as a stone
In a world that she can’t rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where she’s loved
Concrete angel

A statue stands in a shaded place
An angel girl with an upturned face
A name is written on a polished rock
A broken heart that the world forgot

Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as a stone
In a world that she can’t rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where she’s loved
Concrete angel

HG & Myka

February 16, 2012

So, I’m a little slow to this craze, but one of my latest TV loves is Warehouse 13. I’m not really sure why the show didn’t grab my attention the first time it was aired ..I mean, I love Sci-Fi and I used to want to be an archeologist once upon a time, so it really does seem to be my thing. But better late than never right?! Now, I’m truly addicted!

So much so that I am going to shamelessly plug my latest YouTube video here for you all! A HG Wells and Myka tribute (surprise, surprise!) …oh the subtext!!

Being Honest…

February 6, 2012

So if I’m honest, I’d pretty much fallen out of interest with writing my blog. In July I got promoted at work and became the new Assistant Manager ..it’s taken over my life in more ways than expected. As much as I love it, there are times where equally I feel it is sucking the life from me slowly! Hours are long and inconsistent, so it’s difficult to get into any kind of rhythm with your life. Today I decided things should change. Two things happened: FirstlyI had an anonymous comment from a reader, and it just made me think “I still have readers?! Wow!”  Secondly, this then inspired me to actually open my Year Review of 2011 that WordPress send out (I’ve posted mine below for any of you that are interested!) and I was quite shocked with the number of people that are apparently still logging onto this blog ..I was pretty amazed actually ..so THANK YOU🙂

Short and sweet for a first post of the year …but I’ll be back!!😉

2011 in review

February 6, 2012

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,800 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

The ‘Real’ L Word

July 6, 2011

When the original L Word finished I was both happy and sad about it all at the same time. I mean, I loved the L Word. It helped me in so many different ways with my questions about orientation and sexuality and all of that. I fell in love with the characters and their stories, and let’s be honest, talking about that show was a great way to gaydar certain women :p By the time the show reached the final season however, I was ready for it to go. It all felt tired, unrealistic and light years away from the show when it started ..thus the happy sad effect.

Now, I know I’m a little late to the craze, but I recently became aware of the show The Real L Word. I wasn’t sure about it to start with, but I figured why not try and fill the little hole in my heart that the early seasons of L Word had left …so I started watching, and I have to say, the show filled that hole …and then some! I truly love this show. Not only is it hot, but it is super realistic. I’ve seen some pretty sketchy ‘real life’ documentary shows in my life, but what the RLW does is that it’s so self aware, it just makes good, honest television. I bet that all who watch can relate to at least one of the characters (is that even the right word for people in a doc?!) at all times, and will have friends that are like the others. This is a true slice of the lesbian pie, and an amazing look into the lgbt world. People think that it’s all fake because the characters all seem to know each other etc ..but those in the lgbt community know that that’s just not true, It’s the degrees of separation in our world people ..we all know someone who knows someone ..it’s the chart all over again – and it is real. I honestly wish Britain had a version of the show!

So those of you that haven’t seen this show, it’s a few episodes into Season 2 right now. Although most of the women are different this season, I strongly suggest you backtrack. Whitney is by far one of the craziest, yet amazingly interesting women on there, and her story from S1 is worth the look. You’ll all love it ..trust me🙂

Return to form…

March 23, 2011

Creatively, I’ve been out of the game a while. In a time not so long ago, I wrote poetry, songs and short stories. I made fan-videos on YouTube, and I was blogging at least once a week. I’m not exactly sure what happened to all of that, but I have missed the creative outlet I once had. I think maybe leaving University and not ‘having’ to write and be scheduled to things made some of the other parts of life similarly uninspired. Yesterday that changed. I have no idea where the flash of inspiration came from (and I’m certainly not going to complain about it!), but yesterday I sat and made a music video for the first time in 3 years. I’m blaming a TV show I’ve just become ever so slightly obsessed with… But whatever the reason, it can only be a good thing right?! I guess make the decision for yourself –

The video is based on the characters of Emily (Shay Mitchell), Maya (Bianca Lawson) and Paige (Lindsey Shaw) from the ABC Family Drama Pretty Little Liars. Set to the song Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap …hope you enjoy!

Guess lesbianism gets my creative juices flowing… :p

Oh Valentine…

February 15, 2011

Valentine’s confession…
Whenever I have a message, I always get excited to see if it’s from her. She makes me smile.

The quiet kind of happy…

January 26, 2011

I’m happy. And sadly, this isn’t something that tends to frequent my lips too much. I mean, sure there are things in life that could be better; like having a decent salary paid job, not living with my parents, or …not living with my parents. But other than the on the surface, hokey kind of things, life is pretty damn good. I have an amazing group of friends that are all slowly but surely finding themselves falling for someone, I’m getting to know someone (through FB chat of all things!) that I think I could have a real repertoire with, I’m starting to build a genuine friendship with an ex of mine (which is actually kind of nice) , Oscar season is coming up (which is a real guilty pleasure of mine), and I’ve pretty much fallen smitten for a lovely young lady. Oh, and I’m re-watching my Gilmore Girls collection that was completed for me at Christmas – what’s not to smile about?!

Hope all of your 2011’s are shaping up just as jolly🙂
