I went and did it. Plus, other random thoughts

I've asked for opionions and I've drawn out many versions over a couple of months, and now I've finally done it. I got my 7th tattoo.

In case you cannot figure out what it is....
It is a peacock with the text "The in between is killing" which connects the head and tail. 

All my tattoos materialize from some time period in my life. This is my biggest tattoo and probably my most personal. The text came from a poem I wrote about a dear friend who is no longer with us. For her, the in between was killing her.
But what I love about the line is that it applies to so many other aspects of my life.

I'm very happy with it. Shout out to Fortune and Glory tattoo shop on Line Ave. Matt was patient with me and very professional. I recommend the place!

Other news....ump, I think dear ol' fucker James Holmes has been dominating the news. I choose to no longer read about him, until, a guilty / death penalty are decided by a jury of his peers. I volunteer to be on that jury.

The Dark Knight Rises was wonderful. I hate that it's success could be soiled by such a twat.  Enough said. 

Now back to my vapid love of TV shows...
Big Brother is back and is it rocking my socks. I love the new twist this year and declare that Boogie looks like he is being eaten from inside himself. The sunken eyes and cheeks and pale skin. (I do hope he isn't really sick, but damn, he does look it.)

Newsroom is my new Homeland in terms of truly compelling television. However, I did just read that Aaron Sorkin fired his entire writing staff and is hiring anew for season 2. I'm not in the writing room, I don't know all that happens, but from my outsiders pov, I'm shocked. Why try to fix something that isn't broken? Sorkin is notoriously anal retentive with writers and his shows. He seems to know what he is doing, so I reckon I'll just sit back and wait to see if Season 2 is as good as Season 1 is thus far.

Fiona Set List and my thoughts....

Finally seeing Fiona was like a blind kid getting to see for approximately 90 minutes. (maybe that's too hard an analogy, but gather my point)
For a straight 90 minutes Fiona sang, writhed around on the floor, played piano, sang more, but never once talked to the crowd. Fiona is notoriously closed off, anti-social chick, so this came to no surprise to me, but I realize it saddened me just a bit. I was anxious to not only hear her sing, but to be witness to a small, small part of her speaking personality. But let me be clear, Fiona gave her all on that stage. She sang Shadowboxer with the same angst and passion that helped her pen such a perfect song.
Her set list was wonderful, playing songs from every album.
Here is the order:

Fast as you can
On The Bound
Anything We Want
Get Gone
Sleep to Dream
Extraordinary Machine
Oh Well
I Know
Every Single Night
Not About Love
Gone Away?? (cover song, never heard before)
Another Cover song, never heard it before. 

I am nothing but happy with this set list. She played some of my favorites that made me squeal like a pig.
Strange thing: The Nashville crowd was so subdued that it was almost uncomfortable to cheer or move to the music. I say almost because Rob and I did it anyway. It's fucking Fiona people. Get happy! Stupid jaded Nashvillites.
I Know is one of my all time favorite songs, ever. So when Fiona stepped up close to the microphone and the song began, I dropped a few tears of joy, of happiness, of remembrance. 
And my sweet, perfect husband captured the whole song via his phone. I hope this can bring you, dear readers, a little pleasure and joy on this Monday afternoon. (Also, that's my voice at the end. LOL. I was happy).
*side note - Sara was with me. I left her floating in that church surrounded by perfect notes and harmony and tune. May she rest*

Opinions wanted :)

I've been craving a new tattoo for a while now. AND I tend to get new tattoos in different cities. Since I'm heading up to Nashville next week to see Fiona Apple, I think it just might be time. Tell me your thoughts! The round area with words would rest on the round of my shoulder with the head trailing up the nape and the tail down my arm. Not too big, but big enough :) Please give me thoughts, comments, concerns.  Also, artwork is done by me, so don't steal my shit. :)

Obsessive Music

After 7 years of emptiness, Fiona Apple filled me up again. June 19th she released The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do. 
Have I been pleased? Oh yes oh yes! Plus, I'm on the count down to see her live in Nashville TN. Only 6 days left..... :)
Like all Fiona albums, I listen to each song over and over and over. And every time I find something new and wonderful within each song.
I'm picking Hot Knife to share today because, for me, it is the biggest surprise on the album. It. Is. Superb.
Can't listen? Click Here.

Sometimes I give Fiona a rest and listen to other music. Here is some music that is currently in my rotation. 

First, is Some Nights Intro by Fun. You all know Fun. from their overplayed hit We are YoungI liked that song enough to check out their album,which is very Queen-esque. But my favorite is the first two tracks. I do believe that Some Nights is their current single. There is a video and such, but it's the Intro that fucking rocks. And it just so happens that their is a video for that too!!!
I literally cannot listen to it just once. At least twice, but usually three times in a row. It just grabs me.
Favorite lyric: Waiting for catastrophes, imagine when they scare me
Into changing whatever it is I am changing into...

Next song I blame Kelly Clarkson. She sang it on Duets and now I can't stop singing it. Sometimes the country comes out of me and I just let swing free. So Thanks Kelly for introducing me to Miranda Lambert's Mama's Broken HeartThis song is fun. Listen closely to the first line second verse as she pronounces Baptist with a sweet disgust. Masterful.
 Can't listen? Click Here.

Lastly is the sugar pop crack that I'm addicted to. Makes me wanna dance, sing, and pretend I have a size 2 ass. I first heard this song about 3 months ago and it is STILL my happy go to song. And the video is memorizing. Kat Graham's Put Your Graffit on Me. I know I've put this video up here before, but I don't think it got across to you all. So Check It Out!

TV, Movie, LIfe Quick Shots

The 4th is over and I haven't posted in approximately 14 years. I think there is much to cover.
So You Think You Can Dance is gonna be a good season. Excited.
-  Mtv's Awkward. is back. Still loving it. 
True Blood is making me all anxious. 
Newsroom is Sorkin at his best. Never expected to like it. But I do. 
-  Guilty pleasures like The Glee Project and Pretty Little Liars are rocking as much as ever. No complaints. 
Big Brother. I miss you. I'm very excited for your return to my living room 3 times a week. (I have no idea how I'll find the time, but where there's a will there is a way.) Btw, anybody tried to watch the copy cat version on ABC, Glass House? hahahaha. 
-  Special mention to Bunheads. It's like having a spin off of Gilmore Girls, which in turn has been filling this missing hole in my heart. Thank you Amy Sherman-Palladino for bringing small town, quick wit, and fast dialogue back to me in a soapy heart filled explosion of happy. 

- The Amazing Spider-Man was in fact amazing. The chemistry between the two leads is palpable. And Andrew Garfield OWNS this new Spidey character. Go see it IMAX 3D, because it is pure entertainment. It's what everyone should expect when watching a 3D movie or an IMAX movie. 
-  Ted. Oh Ted. It only took 1 minute into the movie before I laughed loud enough to surely annoy a theater patron. I didn't care, cause my laughs were plentiful and hearty. Mark Wahlberg shines in his best intentional comedic role. Seth MacFarlane is genius in his feature directorial debut and as the teddy bear himself. Give this man an Oscar for funny.
- Avengers! It may have been a bit ago, but damn that was a fun movie. 
- Moonrise Kingdom. Wes Anderson doing what Wes does best. He exists in bubble of genius that cannot be touched or duplicated by others. If you have liked/loved any Wes Anderson film, you'll surely enjoy this one too.
- Prometheus. I really liked this movie. It kept me on edge and curious about everything as I tried to link it all to the Alien movies. I'm not a Sci-Fi fan, but this movie, like Alien, this is top notch.
- I took my husband to go see Rock of Ages.
He and I had both seen the show on Broadway and Loved it! It was one of the most fun and exciting theater experiences I have ever had. 
The movie....well, it sucked. It was boring. Julianne Hough should never sing in my ear range ever again. 
The movie had some happy moments, but mostly it was disjointed and boring. Go see the stage experience and leave this "movie" version to rot away into oblivion. 
Last time I was this disappointment was when I watched the remake of Fame or any Katherine Heigl movie.

I have yet to see Magic Mike. But patients. I will. It's filled with hot men dancing and taking their clothes off. I WILL SEE THAT. I'm just waiting for the the theater to be less full. I don't want too much hormonal estrogen floating around. 

Rob is on the final days of color correction and audio mixing our latest Bledska Works Production, "I'm Sorry For..." The rough cut is due Monday the 9th for the Louisiana Film Prize. We are hoping to picked into the top 20. If so, the short will play at the Festival October 5-7. If we win, that would be 50k in our pocket. Fingers crossed and prayers launched. And that is our life right now. Smartly so, cause 50K can change a life.
