LA : 2morrow will be a R A G E R . . .

happy 30th , benny !

life is good .

i found that space .
i woke up today feeling rejuvenated , like i was given eyesight for the first time after years of blindness .
some beautiful energy has wrapped itself around me , i feel like i'm radiating neon . trippy .
there's nothing better than a long drive & this on an 85 degree winter day . .

wait !

friday whatever .

it went just as fast as it came .
i mean .
two weeks ago there were snow capped mountains & frosty la afternoons , which made for a few bone chilling la nights . now , however , there's rolling green hillsides & burning hot sunshine that is only interrupted by a warm santa ana wind . i don't know whether to complain or hit the beach .
i quickly choose the latter .

i'm usually a vampire
but such lovely weather makes me long for sunlight . it's to the point that i can't sleep through the night . my dreams are heavy , thus making me restless . tossing & turning has become my forte . this morning i woke up at 615 unaware of what to do with myself . early morning yoga was just what i needed to re-center this restless energy . i'm in a state of exploration . i doubt that i'm looking for anything in particular , but i'm open to finding everything in general . idle time does not suit me well , huh ? a little withdrawn , but content nonetheless so no cause for concern .

today's agenda : me & the oktomat versus downtown . saisissez le jour !

b a d a s s !

as of 10am today :

This is an important message for the Indie 103.1 Radio Audience - Indie 103.1 will cease broadcasting over this frequency effective immediately. Because of changes in the radio industry and the way radio audiences are measured, stations in this market are being forced to play too much Britney, Puffy and alternative music that is neither new nor cutting edge. Due to these challenges, Indie 103.1 was recently faced with only one option — to play the corporate radio game. We have decided not to play that game any longer.

Rather than changing the sound, spirit, and soul of what has made Indie 103.1 great Indie 103.1 will bid farewell to the terrestrial airwaves and take an alternative course. This could only be done on the Internet, a place where rules do not apply and where new music thrives; be it grunge, punk, or alternative - simply put, only the best music.

For those of you with a computer at home or at work, log on to www.indie1031.com and listen to the new Indie 103.1 - which is really the old Indie 103.1, not the version of Indie 103.1 we are removing from the broadcast airwaves. We thank our listeners and advertisers for their support of the greatest radio station ever conceived, and look forward to continuing to deliver the famed Indie 103.1 music and spirit over the Internet to passionate music listeners around the world.

isn't it great to know that there are still some ppl who stand up for what they believe in ? sad . . . that was the only station in this town worth listening to .


l o v e .

one of the best gifts i got this christmas . today was the perfect 80 degree scene for a full on oktomat photoshoot , but i never managed to make it outta bed . instead , i spent this marvelous sunday looking out of my window & contemplating a million fun shots that will eventually turn into a full on photo installation . won't u pls gimme a reason to get outta bed ? don't u wanna be my muse ?

since the warm weather is here to stay
2morrow will be the day
that me , the oktomat , & lil ms cuckoo pants will head out to play .

photos soon come .

forbidden zone .

joie de vivre !

thus far
this brand new year has been filled with
silence .
crawling under a rock is not such a bad thing to do if it's for sanity & maturity's sake . i'm wrapped around myself all the time , so perhaps i need to finally allow my thoughts to turn into action . my desire for space has now become my desire for physical change . . . no , not plastic surgery . . . rather location , personal status . i guess . just knowing that something has to change means nothing if it all stays the same . my dreams are so vivid lately , i'm seeing what i want so clearly when i'm sleeping . perhaps that's why i sleep so much . my solo adventures have got to manifest themselves or else i just may go crazy . there are things that my heart , my mind , & my psyche need . new inspiration simply . isn't it so cheesy to say , "inspiration begins with me" ? well . . . so be it !

i'm congratulating myself . patting myself on the back . applauding the choices i've made . looking forward to this year without saying too much , or expecting anything . allowing myself to be my own muse . re-exploring old passions . embarking upon new adventures . & we're only 8 days in . . .

i feel like the leading lady in a godard film .

keep ur fingers crossed
i'll keep u posted .


c h e e r s !

just waking up .
abt to enjoy the traditional black family meal .
last night was brilliant fun .
i was surrounded by ppl i love
i laughed / danced / drank / sang like a maniac .
hopefully all of u had a safe & joyous new years celebration .
i'm not one for resolutions
i do promise to be better this year .
work harder .
love harder .
play harder .
here's to a great 2009 *sips water* . death to champagne . . . for now .
