For those who want to be, but aren't.

Shpongled.

Have you ever heard of Shpongle?

A psychedelic music project involving sound and voices from all around the world with many different instruments.

Shpongle played at the Avalon in Hollywood on Tuesday and I went with my boyfriend and a couple of his triply friends.

I could assume everyone in the crowd was under the influence of LSD or mushrooms. The smell of DMT was floating in the room.

This is what I wore.

Deporting The Biebs or Deporting Intelligence?

So I knew that there was this petition to deport Justin Bieber and strip him of his Green Card, but I thought it was maybe just on Change.org or something. 

I found out tonight that this petition is located on the actual White House website. I cannot wrap my head around this! I am truly offended that the White House allowed this petition to take place in the first place. I thought this was a bad joke! I bet half of these signatures are from people who have never even stepped foot in a voting booth (other wise they would most likely have their voting priorities straight), and the other half is just boys who passionately view Bieber as “gay” or a “total faggot.” 

Well I passionately think we becoming dumber as we speak. (I feel especially so writing this post).

How about petitioning congress for more important things this country needs?! Like fighting gay marriage bans or raising minimum wages? Or maybe even something more cliche like ending the war? Im desperate here!

I am so sad that America cares so much about a pop star (that they and the media created). How will our lives change exactly with Justin Bieber back in Canada?

WAKE UP AMERICA!

Excuse my poor writing in this post. I couldn’t concentrate on good diction while writing about something so idiotic.

Missing the Homeland

Iceland. You should go there sometime.

But only go in the summer, trust me.

Being an Extrovert

One thing that I have noticed throughout my life, (well since I became of age) is that people often misinterpret my outgoingness as flirting. Now this can be extremely exhausting, especially when the person gets offended when they realize I am in fact not flirting. I just enjoy talking to strangers.

I am not an “awkward” person. I actually really dislike that word. There is no need to be awkward. Ever. Unless someone just sharted in front of you, I doubt the situation was awkward. But the worst is when someone goes “Well this is awkward!” God damn, well now it’s awkward because you said that so blatantly instead of making a joke and moving onto the next.

Anyways! Back to flirting when I’m not flirting. This may seem like a pretty girls problem, but hey it’s rough. It gets tiring when your boyfriend (and all your ex’s) think you are flirting with his friends or strangers you meet just because you are being nice and asking questions about their lives.

My momma raised me well. No matter what you look like, (but not smell like) I will be kind and spark up a conversation with you.

You’ll know when I’m flirting, unless you are completely clueless. And in that case, I’ll tell you (;

9:49 PM

Friday night.

I am sitting behind my computer screen, (alone) listening to some feel good Destiny’s Child (my favorite band as a kid) drinking Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey (as a grown woman). How fucking nasty. Who drinks that, especially alone?! God damn, I don’t think I have ever been alone on a Friday night. Nights like this make me want to drop everything and go back to New York City.

Why did I leave again?

It Wasn’t Until These Strangers Told Me So…

 Kira, 19 I didn’t need to be ‘less emotional’. I was only so emotional because he made me secondary to the rest of his life, and I hated feeling that way.”

Jonothan, 55 “There is no such thing as “the only one”. You will meet lots of “the ones”. Only commit when the timing is right for the both of you – that can take years for some, and that’s okay.”

Sometimes strangers can put words together for you just fine.

 

So What I Like “Girly” Things…

It gets under my skin when people tell me “you’re so girly”

… which is hardly ever, but still. Maybe because I am a girl!

I don’t like the fact that Beyoncé has to be my guilty pleasure.

However, watching the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills… that should be a guilty pleasure.

See the difference?

True Life: I Think My Childhood Cartoons Were on Drugz

People like to say that Disney movies are perverted, filled with subliminal messaging, that johnny bravo cokethe creators were on drugs, etc, etc. I like to see the good in things, especially my childhood memories. However, these drawings by Paul Ribera feel a little too accurate and make me rethink my memories of these 90’s cartoon characters. The Powerpuff Girls were usually booming with energy, while Ed, Edd n’ Eddy were usually confused, sloppy and up to no good. Dexter and Dee Dee came off as complete tweakers and the Rugrats were capable of entering imaginary worlds! Johnny Bravo is probably the most obvious, having the attitude of a complete cokehead, hiding behind sunglasses at all times. Could it be that these characters were inspired or created based off of drug related behavior?
