A Joy of life

Today I watched these videos, and now it is your turn. :D

Pink Floyd - Life in Pompeii

The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland Part 1

The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland Part 2
The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland Part 3

It was reintroduced to me the fact that music can be made by anything and everything that is capable of making any kind of sound. It's mind blowing to me how these artist come up with these sounds of beautifully composed, magical-experimental-passionate pieces of musical amazingness. Jimi would have this sound in his head and would use anything and everything he could find to translate it into a reality. He used a comb and cellophane to make the sound of a kazoo in Crosstown traffic. The members of Pink Floyd used a howling dog to harmonize wonderfully with David Gilmour's harmonica and Roger Water's guitar in Mademoiselle Nobs. A DOG!

I also watched another Hendrix dvd which was about Band of Gypsys. Throughout Jimi's career he wanted people of all races to experience his music, but at that time the majority of the black community were not into rock n roll, so he struggled to get the people of his own race to accept him. Band of Gypsys was a band of three black men composed of Jimi Hendrix on guitar and vocals, Billy Cox on bass guitar, and Buddy Miles on drums and vocals. Their music had a much more funky sound than The Jimi Hendrix Experience and I especially love Buddy Mile's voice. Oh its beautiful. Particularly on Them Changes. oh I love it.

Oh music is bliss.
I hope you enjoy this post as much as I do.

Orange Juice.

Amanita Muscaria Mushroom:

"The mushrooms are often consumed orally or smoked. However they can also be taken by drinking the urine of a person that has already taken them orally." ................

Possibly the plant called Soma that was used by the Aryans about 4000 years ago in religious practices and also possibly the hallucinogen that caused the ecstasy in the Rig Veda, Holy Book of Hindu. -Probably the cause of the urine drinking ceremony. A. Muscaria consumed orally is said to cause nausea but traveling through the digestive tract weeds out the toxin that causes the nausea...sooo when the urine is consumed that user does not get nasea.


Greek god. Son of Apollo and a mortal woman. Greek god of healing whose serpent entwined staff is the emblem of modern medicine.

I didnt know that...but I guess that's the point of me typing here, it now isn't it.

So, I made a playlist and limited myself 1 song from each band I felt like putting.


This is a really cool tattoo:

You Learn Something New Everyday

Okay, so this whole "research and write an essay" thing isn't working out. I tend to find stuff out daily, but not enough about them to go in and give a detailed description. So, I've decided that even though I don't know enough to write a book about something I find interesting, I'm simply going to state what I learn each day.

Today, I learned that humans have more body hair than the average chimpanzee. (see, it is a normality). Yep, human hair is just shorter, finer, and not as dark. :D

I also learned that researchers believe that skin darkening was an adaptation of a defense against solar ultraviolet radiation. Melanin is the chemical that produces pigment in the skin and is also an effective sun-block. The skin color of humans today is geographically linked and in general, correlates with the level of ultraviolet radiation. interestinnngggg!

Lyrics to live by:

Breathe, Breathe in the air.
Don't be afraid to care.
Leave but don't leave me.
Look around and choose your own ground.

Long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be.

Run, rabbit run.
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done
Don't sit down it's time to dig another one.

For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race towards an early grave

I've been working on embroidering some shoes that I got from this thrift store. I saw them and said "hmm maybe I could embroider something on them" But I knew, or thought I knew as it turns out, that I'd never get around to it. BUT GUESS WHO DID GET AROUND TO IT. Yes, I did.

It took me a while because of my procrastinating nature. Or I guess you wouldn't so much call it procrastination seeing as I did WANT to work one it, I never purposefully avoided it... I just always did other things instead of stitching.

I find that hand sewing to be very therapeutic. It's nice to do when I'm frustrated...on the other hand-- sewing with a sewing machine is NOT good to do when I'm frustrated. I find I'm more prone to become even more frustrated because me and my machine don't always see eye to eye. (ba doom chhh)

First, I'd like to show you my dedication.


Yes, that is a legit injury, NOT A FAKE. and was minorly painful.

Now, on with the show.




Oh btw. long socks = warm in cold weather.
That's just a miraculous discovery that I alone discovered.
Your welcome.

I'd also just like to share the package that I got the other day. When it appeared on the counter in the package center... I knew it had to be mine.. because I know my mom. :D


The inside was beautiful though.
TEA and marshmallows. and stuff.

thank you.

Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air.

Savannah is swimming.

But the Earth is BEAUTIFUL.

Earl Grey

mmm Earl Grey tea.

So on my long and strenuous trek Eastward to Savannah, I decided to take the advice of a dear friend and write a poem. It's an epic poem documenting my journey through life and Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Georgia.

Dim lighting effect.

ah ehm

Corn On The Cob.


I'm driving: fog.
I may post this on my blog.

Thinking: I never know.
I should probably slow.

McDonalds was eaten,
My stomach's taken a beaten.

Redbull ingested,
Caffeine infested.

New Orleans: Directions misunderstood.
Found myself in the hood.

Dump truck I see.
School mascot is a bee.

Gotta poo.
Not wearin' a single shoe.

Punch-bug white.
I wanna fly a kite.

This poem's scheme is monotonous.
I thought about being a botanist.

I need a job.
Corn on the cob.

*finger snaps*

Plus a new addition to the dorm roooooooom!

Christmas cookies.

It was December 23. Matherne's Supermarket had been flooded with late ingredient shoppers all morning and into the evening. Halie and I were just about to knock off when Halie comes up with the greatest way for us to spend the next few hours before any Christmas Eve festivities could begin: BAKE COOKIES!

We bought the ingredients (yeah yeah)--then started the

Sugar cookie dough, flour, toothpicks, festive jello shape-cutter-outers, homemade iceing, our masterful creativity...and about 3 hours later....vuah la!




Halie says that my dinosaur and cows weren't very festive like her wreath, presents, and candy canes... but then... this comes from the girl who makes the penis cookie.

(ha get it) :D



And that was that.
