Blue Hair and Music Love

blue hair

Here is a pic of the blue hair! Finally :)

I wanted to post a video from You Tube, but I cant figure out how, so I will just leave a link. I cannot stop listening to Rocky Votolato, one of my favorite artists. Thank you James!!! We just got his new album and I have it on repeat! It is truly good, I adore his voice, his lyrics, his style. And he travels and does house parties, I am so jealous, I want him to come play at mine! But I doubt he would ever pass through a small town like Bandera! Anyway, love him, you should check out his stuff!

I have not been able to get organized all day. I made some new jewelry this morning, cleaned house, did alot online, but I just feel lost.

I have a shoot in the morning that I am honestly not looking forward to waking up to do. I get myself into doing favors for friends, and I dont know how to ask for $. So I just dont. Oh well. I just feel like I dont have the time to spend on work for nothing anymore. Maybe I am just feeling negative today, I dont know.

Tonite my dad and my nanna are on separate dates watching and enjoying Willie Nelson at the Majestic Theater in San Antonio! Oh how I wish I was there and not here.

Back to Rocky, i was listening to the lyrics and these stood out to me. i think we all know someone like this...

"Ego is running wild - a monster is hiding behind
Your smoke ring eyes
The harder you fight the tide
The less likely you'll survive"

I dont know, just reminded me of old things Id rather forget.

And this last line I will share from the song 'Lucky Clover Coin' goes out to God and my husband...

"I only want to walk the way you showed me"

Ive always been a lyrics girl. My ex used to tell me that lyrics didnt matter, only the music does, I say that's false. They are equal to me, without good lyrics a song means less to me, except of course if we are talking about instrumentals, which i am not, i do see the beauty in that respect. But also, you can have amazing lyrics but with awful music and that is equally sad. I love how music is such a personal thing and that it is different for everyone. Ive only found one person with almost identical music taste, and unfortunately it is the one person i never want to speak to again. Although, James has turned me onto some really amazing music, and he even likes some of my girly music, like Kate Nash. We do pretty well in that respect!!!

Okay, I need to go do something else. My bestie just told me to stop working and relax, lets see if I can do that!!!



  1. I totally agree when it comes to lyrics, they can either make or break the song! Loving your hair, you are just so beautiful!! Take care and I hope that you day ends up being a wonderful day full of fun and surprising outcomes!

  2. yay! i just LOVE that teal in your hair. i am thinking bout some color too...and that color just looks awesome! i agree about lyrics...they are what makes a song. a reason i love artists like bob dylan...who can't sing to save his life but can write them like nobody's business! enjoy your evening girlie. *mwah*

  3. I love the blue in your hair. How fun! Also totally agree with you about the importance of lyrics. Hope your day got better. I am hoping to get out of my Monday Funk soon!!

  4. Your hair looks awesome!!
    And yeah, you should totally take some relax time... or your day will probably keep going more stressed.
    To put a Youtube video on a post, you start creating a post, go to Edit Html and from Youtube, you copy the Embed code and paste it on your post. You won't be able to see the actual video until it's posted but it'll be there.
    Hope it helps!!
    A big hug.

  5. I looooooooove Rocky Votolato. I first heard him when I found a burned cd on the side of the road, I took it home and listened and fell in love. (can't believe the cd worked!) p.s. your hair looks awesome!

  6. so pretty...and so is the hair :)

    i have been thinking about a little pink for a long time now.....

  7. I agree with you on the equality of music and lyrics. I think both are important components of songs, for me, a good song has both of them.

    Rocky's stuff sounds great, a house party sounds like so much fun.

    Thanks for sharing those lyrics, I can relate, to both of them :)

    Hang in there!

  8. i am a lyrics girl too for sure!
    and also you are adorable. love the blue.
    i know how you feel about doing things for free. i think we do it bc we are givers but there are so many takers out there.
    my cousins and family always pay me even though i dont expect it but sometimes its annoying when friends just expect freebies.
    did you do your blog layout yourself? its beautiful

  9. I love Rocky Votolato!! I saw him yearss ago at this little cafe and no one was there, so sad! So good to see the success grow.

    I love your hair, not many can pull off blue!

  10. Forgot to say how cute the blue in your hair is. Wrote you back on my blog, thanks for being so encouraging, you are the best :)

    Here's to moving past funks!

  11. LOVE the blue hair!!!!! Love, Love, Love!

    I know about the favors.....it can be so hard to stand up for your talent!!!!

  12. Hey girl, how do I add you button? I can't find the link...
    A big hug,

  13. Kate Nash is the only artist my husband and I can agree on also!

  14. love the blue hair! i was thinking of doing teal next... still not sure. those lyrics are great! i love rocky v too. you are so good at this blogging thing, i have to get more on top of mine!
