i knew i was going to come in today and try and muster up my unbelievable experience last night into some form of verbal communication. i have to say it's nearly impossible.

last night was my first live JBT experience. my 2 friends that i went with had already seen them live at bonnaroo and also one year at acl. my friend natorchen is the one that turned me onto the band as his first experience was live and my first experience has been through recorded cd's.

they opened the show with "better than" and ended the encore with "funky tonight" with all the quintessential john butler in between. the whole show was phenomenal - playing most of the songs from grand national and of course throwing a little "zebra" in the mix. excellent.

john performed an extended guitar solo that went on for probably a good 10 minutes while i stood there with my mouth open unable to even move a muscle. his drummer has the pimpest drum set i have ever seen in my entire lifetime - as he performed a drum solo as well that was probably a good 5 minutes that caused the same reaction from me.

if any of you out there have never seen this band live, i completely urge you to go do so. i would almost give anything to be able to be at the show tonight at stubbs in austin. perfect outside setting, perfect town, perfect band. i am still on a complete music high and i'm not comin down for a long while.


*below is the same solo he performed last night that left me in awe : "ocean"

"Well, I Woke Up This Morning, A Rainbow Filled The Sky"

i came in this morning having SO much to write about and i just completely got overwhelmed with a severe case of writers block. yikes.

maybe if i just start writing, everything i wanted to say will begin to come out.

so i did some car research this weekend. turns out my santa fe only gets 18 mpg. talk about terrible. i think i've narrowed down my options to two vehicles. the toyota matrix or the toyota prius. this is going to be a tough decision for me because the matrix is exactly in my price range - and it gets 26 mpg highway - which is almost double what mine gets. OR....i could have the option of the slightly more expensive prius but get 44 mpg!!!!!!! 44 mpg....seriously. overall i'm sure whichever way i went it would equal out. but i'm tending to want to go the way of the prius simply because it's better on the environment and it's a hybrid. so........we'll see. i am going to go do some test driving over the weekend. whatever i choose needs to happen soon since gas prices just rose again here to $3.54. wtf. next we will turn around and it's going to be $8 a gallon. this town REALLY needs to start getting more efficient with the public transportation. i'm NOT kidding. because we are in serious need of it now and very soon in our near future. yes, we have the dart rail, but it's not all it's cracked up to be that's for sure. we are really in need of public transport in the likes of chicago or ny. but who am i kidding, that will never happen here.

have any of you, dear readers, seen the last kiss? if you have, i'm terribly sorry, i feel your pain...and if you haven't yet seen it, do yourself a favor and stay as far away from this movie as possible. the acting was great - had some good actors in it...the story line makes you want to slit your wrists. twice...and not miss. ugh. i've never felt so meloncholy or depressed after watching a movie as i did with this movie. the soundtrack is brilliant, so atleast it has THAT going for it.

my mother bought me painting supplies 2 christmas' ago. i had yet to open them at all. i decided to create this weekend. i painted 3 paintings and i had an amazing time doing it. it was so much fun and so soothing. the first 2 were alright, but i was pretty impressed with my 3rd one here. i kinda dig it.

anyhoooooooooo, i know i had some other things on my mind, but i can't seem to think of them at the moment. so i will leave you now. have a fantabulous day all!

The Way I Am

well kiddies, no Flashback for tomorrow, because i am taking a much needed day off from work. so enjoy your weekend ~ i hope it's lovely.

i will leave you will this sweet little ditty:

I Ain't Scurred

sooooooooo i'm not very big on "new" music now-a-days. and by new music i mean most mainstream bands that come out of the woodwork that sound just like the one that came out before that. that personally....i don't feel has any more talent than the average joe out there. i have a huge range of music taste (obviously), but for about the past 10 years i haven't paid much attention to the mainstream of things...unless it was a band that i already was into....u2, dmb...i could go on.

i usually listen to NPR on my drives or throw in a cd or even listen to my ipod. every few months or so, i will scour the radio stations to see if there is anything out there worth hearing or discovering. usually i end up disappointed. however, i have to admit, my guilty pleasure "new" band is maroon 5. i absolutely LOVE these guys. so i tend to follow them with getting their newest cd out on the market. these guys are rockin in my opinion. anyway.....

oh also, i have been slightly addicted to lone star 92.5 since it started up fairly recently, so that's always a good one.

i'm swaying away from my point i will occasionally browse through the "adult alternative" music stations that we have here and i've heard this song quite a few times. and i'm comfortable enough in my own skin to be a dork and say that I LOVE IT! i don't know anything about this band or if i would like any of their other stuff, but i totally dig this song. it's got a great groove and the lyrics are pretty frickin awesome. i found two video versions of the song. so my friends, feel free to make fun of me all you want. i can take it. :-p

~ Tread Lightly Today and Everyday ~

happy earth day all! as it should be EVERY day. this is one of my favorite days of the year as it raises awareness to the fact that we must take care of our home...our mother earth. without her, we are nothing. without her we do not exist.

do your part today and everyday to help. turn off a light. recycle a coke bottle. HUG A TREE! rejoice in mother earth's love. embrace her beauty and respect her fully. be one with her today. EVERY DAY. ~ namaste ~

~ If you honor every living thing as a part of nature's treasure, you're in tune with Mother Nature. So let's all sing her song together~

It's the Little Things in Life....

so i've had this candle for a VERY VERY long time and apparently never paid much attention to it. i looked at it over the weekend and thought - "wow what a cool tattoo that would make". of course i would have to have the $$ to get another one, but regardless....pretty frickin cool tattoo.

money is stressing me out again. gas prices are beyond ridiculous. i should have thought of this before i decided to get another SUV and with all the driving i do, i just can't afford it anymore. my car payment is great, but it's just the gas that i can't handle. i fill up my tank twice a week on the weeks i have the ladybug and atleast once a week on the weeks that i don't. i filled up my tank a few days ago. $58. $58 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so i was irritated and discussing with my folks what they thought i should / could do. we came up with a few options - if i sold my car now, i could probably come out right at even. but my dad was thinking of possibly taking over my santa fe and selling his car and getting me something else. which would be fine with me - he doesn't drive that much and the santa fe is REALLY a great vehicle. i absolutely adore it - i just can't afford to be driving it anymore. i am REALLY diggin the toyota prius....

of course i would go for the light green color or tan or silver - along those lines. the 05's and 06's are in my price range, so i think i could do it - plus it's a hybrid, so i'm TOTALLY cool with that.'s an option, but i need to make a decision and do something quickly before i have to sell my car and ride my bike the millions of miles that i drive a day. ugh.

sorry for the vent. i'm just so tired of living paycheck to paycheck and not able to put anything in savings. i'm striving to get there, but i have to cut some things here and there and starting with the gas situation i think that will help a lot.

had a pretty productive weekend filled with house cleaning all day saturday, soccer on sunday and work that i brought home. that's never too fun, but we are so busy right now, that it was really the only thing to do as opposed to drown early this week.

thanks for reading my post with grumpy undertones this morning my dear readers. hopefully the rest of my posts this week won't be so negative. :-p

Newest Creation

i made this last week. went to splendor in the grass - a really cool local beadstore and spent wayyyyyyyyy too much money. but this was the outcome and a gift for a very special person in my life....

Demons, Catholicism and Spiritual Cleanses

um. wow. i had a fulfilling weekend for sure. spent most of it with a special friend and delved more into this haunting going on at his home.

luckily i was free all week and weekend to harbor said friend at my house to escape the demons.

my friend has had many demons of his own in his life that he has overcome and the last thing he needs is any outside forces such as these to get to him now.

quite a few more incidences happened this past week - enough to know that there is definitely something paranormal going on in this house. and by this, it's definitely not a peaceful haunting, it feels "demonic".

i have a struggle with this sometimes because of my faith or lack of faith....i certainly believe in spirits and good and bad spirits. but it's the angelic and demonic references that i am just not so sure about.

his mom visited the house over the weekend. she's a strange breed, this one. her religion is quite cultish and she believes everything you do in your life and who you are is a direct reflection of your relationship with god and jesus. now that's ok, but to hear what she preaches makes me want to...well...vomit...or just walk away. i can't even explain it into words. but i'm not a horrible person, so i sat and listened while my friend and i exchanged "oh dear god, make it stop" looks throughout the conversation.

a friend of the family also showed up after visiting with a local priest at his catholic church. firstly, the priest advised this friend of the family not to dare step foot inside the house. apparently paranormal or demonic activity is quite common in the catholic community, but is kept very hush hush. he got a name of a deacon at the catholic diocese downtown to contact and to have him come over for an exorcism. apparently he is working overtime....

the family friend showed up with some holy water and many st. benedict medals - he is the saint known for warding off demons. the priest advised him to place a medal in each room of the home. the priest also sent advise for my friend to only bless himself with the holy water rather than spraying it all over the house as this may aggravate the spirits even more. and of course as any priest would suggest, go to church more and cleanse yourself first.

keep in mind i am absolutely unfamiliar with the catholic faith. it has always intrigued me, and i have to admit stepping into several very old catholic churches in mexico gave me goosebumps and a strong feeling of spirituality that was one i could not describe in words.

the bottle of holy water actually had "holy water" written on it and on the back was a price tag with "sacred heart $1.50". seriously? that sort of rubbed me the wrong way that you actually have to PAY for holy water and it appears to be commercially packaged. hmmm....

saturday night, crack monkey and i did some research online for local paranormal investigators and cleansing rituals. we found a local paranomal investigator whom my friend has now contacted and will hopefully be getting back to us to talk about this and come over to investigate.

also some great websites on cleanses....which we are going to try these as well.

so yah....we went back to the house yesterday for a bit during the day and strangely enough it didn't feel as spooky. not sure if the st. benedict medals were actually "working" or if it was just an inactive day. hopefully my friend will get to rid of these demons and not have to move AGAIN just when he's getting back on his feet. we have a big task cut out for us and honestly i'm kind of intrigued by getting the investigator over to the house and actually performing the cleanse.

anyway, i'm going to go back to trying to wake up this monday morning and actually get some work done. i am in need of a SERIOUS vacation - none of this take a couple of days off and stay at home...i need to get AWAY!

Springtime Meme

feeling a little bizarre today. i've only physically SEEN one ghostly figure in my lifetime - it was my grandfather. one of the houses that i rented was also home to a few spirits, but i never actually saw them appear. last night, i was staying with a .... friend .... and there was a figure....didn't take a specific shape, but it was definitely there. we both saw it. it was quite freaky i must say, but cool all the same.

that didn't have anything to do with the title or body of this post, but just thought i would mention that.
i read this post on the wild pomegranate's site, and decided to give it a go.....

Astrological Sign?

Chinese Astrological Sign?

What are you currently setting your intention on or praying for?
embracing my job promotion at work, raising my daughter the best that i can, being better with money, nourishing my friendships/relationships, physically feeling great about myself, taking a spiritual journey

Who do you pray to?
i'm not much of a prayer (not at the moment anyway or have i ever been) - but that could change at any point - i feel a spiritual movement within coming on gradually

Do you believe God created humans or humans evolved from primordial goo?
more times than not, i believe more in evolution, but i have a strong sense of a god or a goddess - some other higher power out there. i also believe in the possibility of both intertwined and working together.

What is your mantra?

Do you believe in Sin?
this is tough to answer. since i wouldn't consider myself a christian or very "religious", i'm not sure if i do believe in sin. i believe in basic morals (not necessarily religion related). if you do something you consider a "sin", i believe that it's you that has to deal with the consequences, not that someone else (ie. God) will punish you or look down upon you for that. i believe many people do very very horrible things....and i've even seen it with my own eyes...but i don't know if i consider that "sin" as much as i do bad choices or depending on the extent, "evil".

Do you believe in Evil?
i completely 100% agree with grace on this one: "I believe some really horrible things have transpired at the hands of human beings. For lack of a better work, ‘evil’ could apply. However, both ‘evil’ and ‘good’ are simply judgements."

What do you do when you see 11:11?
i acknowlege the number sequence, but it doesn't go beyond that

Do you believe in Angels?
very much so!

Do you believe in God? If so, what does God look like to you?
some days i do, other days i don't. regardless, if i do or don't, god does not look like me. i am more of a believer of god or the goddess being in your your soul. i tend to have more faith in humanity and try and live my life in this world. i do have a spiritual side to me that is quite confused most of the time. i am currently on a journey between myself and my beliefs and seeking out what's right for me.

Is there a religion that you don’t follow, but deeply respect or admire?
i respect all religions as an individual choice. i admire buddhism and paganism. any religion tests i've ever done have said i am closest to either of these.

Who has inspired you the most on your spiritual path?
my father. he gives me faith in the christian religion - in the good of people. in humanity. even though i don't consider myself a christian, i admire my father's beliefs and his spiritual path.

What is something you would like to believe, but don’t?
i would like to believe that we, as a human race, aren't slowly deteriorating and i wish that we could all take a step back and realize what we are doing to ourselves and our world around us.

Do you believe in soul mates?
definitely!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i also believe that you can have a number of soulmates in different aspects of your life.

Reincarnation or heaven?
maybe a little bit of both?

Best “ah ha!” moment/epiphany?
haven't gotten there yet

Required spiritual reading?
everyone has their own. for me, the reads that awoke my spirituality and my beliefs were reading the da vinci code and angels and demons. i don't necessarily call them spiritual reads because they are fiction, but for me, that's what inspired me to start seeking

If you could pick, in your final moments, what would your last words be?
“I love you.”

Advice for a lost soul?
we are all lost souls...together searching

A song that encapsulates your beliefs?

Melody Gardot

HOLY FREAKIN HELL! natorchen told me i must check this girl out. i'm so thankful that i did.

brilliant talent here - she'll give you goosebumps.

Scuttle Buttin'

this put a little groove in my step this morning...hope it does the same for you :)

Flashback Friday : Volume 26

happy friday all! today i'm going to take you a bit on the industrial side of things. back to the time that i wore the very pale makeup with the red lipstick, the many times i dyed my hair dark burgundy and walked around in my cure - disintegration shirt. :-p

i am assuming front 242 is still together, however i am completely unsure of this since i don't listen to this type of genre too much anymore. but THIS SONG, was the bomb...and it still is.

headhunter by front 242. enjoy.

Find The River

one of my favorite REM songs and i woke up with it in my head this morning.

Hey now, little speedyhead,
The read on the speedmeter says
You have to go to task in the city
Where people drown and people serve
Don't be shy. Your just deserve
Is only just light years to go

Me, my thoughts are flower strewn
Ocean storm, bayberry moon
I have got to leave to find my way
Watch the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes
Nothing is going my way

The ocean is the river's goal,
A need to leave the water knows
We're closer now than light years to go

I have got to find the river,
Bergamot and vetiver
Run through my head and fall away
Leave the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes
Nothing is going my way

There's no one left to take the lead,
But I tell you and you can see
We're closer now than light years to go
Pick up here and chase the ride
The river empties to the tide
Fall into the ocean

The river to the ocean goes,
A fortune for the undertow
None of this is going my way
There is nothing left to throw
Of Ginger, lemon, indigo,
Coriander stem and rose of hay
Strength and courage overrides
The privileged and weary eyes
Of river poet search naivete
Pick up here and chase the ride
The river empties to the tide
All of this is coming your way

Portraits Before and After Death

Portraits Before and After Death (use your own judgment when opening)

i got this link from dooce's post.

i was honestly a little nervous before i clicked on the link as i thought it would be a little grusome. amazingly enough, it was haunting, yet moving and BEAUTIFUL. i have never seen death captured in such a peaceful, artistic way. i hope you enjoy. make sure you read all the captions off to the right of the photos as well. very touching.

hmmm....i'm not sure how many of you out there use gmail, but i've noticed the sign in screen has been different today. i finally took the time to actually look at what it said just a moment ago and i am quite baffled by this. you can actually set when you are sending your email to a previous time - 6 hours ago, last night, one week ago. WTF. i'm sorry but i think that's just dirty.

you can use this tool to stump people when you know you were in the wrong, but then they open up their emails and WOW - there your email is that you supposedly sent one week ago sitting in their inbox. seriously, who thought of this? they need to be reprimanded.

in other news, amos lee is coming out with a new album that isn't released until june and i'm already hearing the songs off of it on my yahoo launchcast. that makes butterfly very happy. :)

***UPDATE: dammit, did i get suckered into another april fools joke? this looks a little phoney now that i'm inspecting it.

that's ok...i will just put this sign on my OWN DESK. thank you very much.

April Fools

so my own daughter got me good this morning for april fools day.

she was adamant that she had early release today. i was a little irritated that she was just NOW telling me because this means that i have to make sure someone is there early to get her from school. after she got me riled up, she decided to throw the "april fools" at me.

little butt. she's too smart for her own good i think.

i've never been one to pull any real april fools jokes on anyone. maybe i should plan a really good one on someone. there's always next year.

today is a HUGE day for me at work today....please everyone wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed for me. i have a meeting at 3:00 today. i'm incredibly nervous.

on the bum side of things, my little "venture" fell through. :( i was kind of looking forward to being spontaneous. ah well...just means it wasn't my time to do so.

another bum side of things, natorchen found out that eddie izzard added a quick show in my town last night. tics were supposed to be $35....he couldn't find 2 together through the regular channels and then the cheapest he could find through an alternate was $100 a pop. dang it. of course he's coming back in june, but tickets are out the roof at this point. bugger.

apparently i'm a little crabby today - i need to do something about that. cheerio ya'll.
