Everybody in my real life knows that I live for music .. it has saved me on more occasions that I probably should admit.

I heard this song for the first time yesterday when I came across it’s video and it made me cry.

This was my life..

For those of you who haven’t read this blog back far enough, I was a cutter. I’m neither embarrassed by it or proud of it.

Although I haven’t habitually cut in a while, being one is part of who I am and helped make me into the person I am.

This video is graphic .. but not gratuitously.

Before posting the video, I thought it would be good to post a message from P!nk explaining the song and the video:

A Personal Note From P!nk:

I’m sure my newest video for “F**kin’ Perfect” will be much like some of my other videos, which basically means I expect it will ruffle some feathers.

My favorite books, art pieces, films, and music, always have something jarring about them. I want art to make me think.
In order to do that, it may piss me off, or make me uncomfortable. That promotes awareness and change, or at least some discussion.
That is my intention.
You can’t move mountains by whispering at them.

Cutting, and suicide, two very different symptoms of the same problem, are gaining on us. (the problem being; alienation and depression. the symptoms; cutting and suicide). I personally don’t know a single person who doesn’t know at least two of these victims personally. A lot of us have seen certain starlets showing off their latest scars on a red carpet somewhere, usually right before they head back to their favorite rehab.

Its a problem, and its something we should talk about.
We can choose to ignore the problem, and therefore ignore this video, but that won’t make it go away.
I don’t support or encourage suicide or cutting.
I support the kids out there that feel so desperate/numb/powerless, that feel unseen and unheard, and can’t see another way.. I want them to know I’m aware. I have been there. I see them.
Sometimes that’s all it takes.

Making this video was a very emotional experience for me, as was writing this song. I have a life inside of me, and I want her or him to know that I will accept him or her with open and loving and welcoming arms. And though I will prepare this little munchkin for a sometimes cruel world, I will also equip this kid to see all the beauty in it as well. There are good people in this world that are open-minded, and loving. There are those that accept us with all of our flaws. I do that with my fans/friends, and I will do that with my child, whoever they decide to be.

If it’s too graphic for you, at least close your eyes and listen to the words. They are ones that need to be shared with everyone in your life.. young.. old.. male.. female..

I wish there was someone who was there to tell me that when I needed to hear it ..


This is the radio friendly version in case you just can’t deal with the original:

.. because it’s  not like I had nothing better to do ( preparing for a two night getaway is HELL ) .. and considering how I put absolutely NO thought into how I was going to look you really must be convinced now that I am far left of center!!



Ok.. that title’s lame. I admit it.



Geez.. could you give it a rest now?

Anway … Unless you’ve been cemented into an Amish family’s barn foundation, I know you’ve heard of Lady GaGa.

You may have heard OF her.. but have you ever HEARD her? I mean.. like her songs?

If not.. allow me five minutes of your precious time and watch this video:

Bad Romance happens to be my favorite song obsession at the moment and like anything I get obsessed about, I need to find out as much as possible.

Not having a job helps when your up to 3am cruising the internet for info, I’ll tell you what!

So now here’s the thing..

Yes, this emo / alt rock / classic rock chick really digs her music. I normally wouldn’t be caught dead with ANYTHING ‘pop’ or ‘pop’ related but this is the exception to the rule.

Alright.. alright.. I read Perez Hilton, ok? But that’s just because I’m a gossip whore who she really doesn’t care about what happens in celebrity lives but buys People and US Weekly.

But I will tell you what I like the most about Lady Gaga. Beside her songs. She is the complete opposite of the impression that she originally makes. She is committed to her vision.. she is committed to her art.. she has the chops. Her voice and talent are not studio created.

And dare I say she is humble and authentic?

Big words to use for some one who has had 5 consecutive #1 hits of a debut album.

I downloaded The Fame Monster the other day and I have to say that I love every song. Another rarity. Each one is different in it’s own way. For instance, give me another three minutes of your time and check out this song:

This was the video that made me realize that there was a lot more to her.. so yea she’s hot.. and her videos are sexy.. and she’s Italian-American.. but don’t be so quick to write her off and if you get a chance to see her interviewed, don’t change the channel.. you won’t be disappointed and you might just change your mind.

Oh.. and by the way.. she has replaced Angelina Jolie as my Girl Crush!! LOL

The only thing I knew about KOL is..well.. their name. I’ve heard it being buzzed around alot lately but could never attach the band to a song.

NOTE: The worse things the Internet Nazis did at work was to limit our internet access meaning, no more listening to my favorite radio station online so my discovery of new songs, bands, etc. is extremely limited now.

Anyway.. there was a conversation going on around my cube about Kings Of Leon and since I was already in the iTunes store I bought the album.

Honestly, at first, I wasn’t really thrilled. I mean, I liked “Use Somebody” but I wasn’t used to their kind of “sound” and was kind of surprised that they are listed as “alternative”

I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out how to describe their sound but I’m coming up empty. It’s kinda raw.. kinda sexy.. kinda moody (not in a PMS kinda way).

I do know that the more I listened to them the more I started to dig it. Really dig it.

Highly suggest you give it a listen.

Especially “Revelry” .. “Sex On Fire” .. “Cold Desert” and of course, “Use Somebody”

And just in case your not familiar with them, here’s a couple of videos to check them out:

I haven’t heard this song in a LONG time.. this is the song that from the very second I heard it, reminded me of Chief:

Everytime I hear it I get a cheesy grin on my face … except if things aren’t going so good… then I cry.
