Okay so I've been meaning to ask you because I remember you said you liked girl vocalist so have you heard of the band 1997 they were a great band chicago and the girl lead has a great voice
You would be right. I love female vocalists, particularly if they are singer-songwriters. I actually have never listened to or even heard of 1997, but I will definitely be looking them up! Thank you for the recommendation!
“Not saying not charmed at all. Not saying that you weren’t worth the fall. I was alone when I knew it was real — down the canyon when I knew I had come to the line, through the dawn to the light, to the turn, when you said you could drive all night.”—Tori Amos
Why do you have such an amazing taste in music? Seriously. :)
Aw! Thank you so much! :D I just have a real passion for music of all genres, but female singer-songwriters tend to have the most impact on me so I like to share them the most of tumblr. Thank you for the compliment!
This is one of those songs that I somehow managed to overlook when first listening to Scarlet’s Walk. Now I can’t stop listening to it. Perhaps these shifting addictions to particular Tori Amos songs happen because my life changes and these songs take on new meanings. It’s amazing how dynamic her music is, largely because some songs are left up to a great deal of interpretation. “Strange” is fairly straightforward, but no less powerful because of that.
I think anyone can enjoy the deep amount of introspection in her music, but that what she talks about often applies to women. A lot of women would benefit from just sitting down and really listening to one of her songs and thinking about what they’re saying. This particular song isn’t really one of those that applies to only women, but I still think it has wonderful things to say.
It’s just amazing. I wish I could convey how deeply I have fallen in love with it.
Strange. Thought I knew you well, thought I had read the sky, thought I had read a change in your eyes. So strange. Woke up to a world that I am not a part except when I can play it’s stranger.
After all, what were you really looking for? And I wonder when will I learn? Blue isn’t red. Everybody knows this. And I wonder when will I learn? When will I learn? Guess I was in deeper than I thought I was if I have enough love for the both of us.
"Just stay." You said we’ll build a nest. So I left my life, tried on your friends, tried on your opinions. So when the bridges froze and you did not come home, I put our snowflake under a microscope.
After all, what was I really looking for? And I wonder when will I learn? Maybe my wish knew better than I did . And I wonder when will I learn? When will I learn? Guess I was in deeper than I thought I was if I have enough love for the both of us.
So strange. Now I’m finally in. The Party has begun. It’s not like I can’t feel you still. But strange, what I will leave behind. You call me one more time, but now I must be leaving.
“So we go from year to year with secrets we’ve been keeping, though you say you’re not a Templar man. Seems as if we’re circling for very different reasons, but one day the Eagle has to land.”—Tori Amos
I actually have not seen Veer Zaara. I have definitely been meaning to see it though! The only problem with watching Bollywood films is that it can be quite a bit of a task considering how long they all are. One day I will see it, but how soon I’m not sure xD
This article discusses new findings that hope to end the debate on whether tyrannosaurus rex was a hunter or a scavenger. Scientists determined that determining the dinosaurs hunting behaviors through was a flawed way of thinking because other animals have similar physical features, but hunt in completely different ways. Instead they examined the t-rex in its ecological context and whether or not it would have been beneficial for the t-rex to hunt or scavenge. Their results point distinctly towards hunting for the reasons entailed in the article. As someone who has had an acute interest in dinosaurs ever since I was a little kid (hey, girls can like barbies AND dinosaurs), I found this article pretty interesting.
noticed that your into middle eastern culture and bollywood and stuff, and i couldnt tell my your picture, you look like a craazy mix of things haha
haha. That makes sense. I don’t know that many white people who are into Bollywood. It gets little to know exposure in the Western world for some strange reason. It’s sad really. Truly though I wish I was of Middle Eastern descent! And I didn’t know I looked like a mix! I actually take that as a compliment.
“You’re already in there. I’ll be wearing your tattoo. I’m already in circles and circles and circles again. The girl’s in circles and circles, got to stop spinning. Thought I was over the bridge now.”—Tori Amos
I’m Caucasian. My family mostly has German roots, but there is also some English, Irish, and Scottish blood thrown in as well. So pretty much I’m just another Anglo-Saxon clusterfuck, like a lot of other people who live in the United States. Nothing interesting or exotic unfortunately. Why do you ask?
Life is a stream On which we strew Petal by petal the flower of our heart; The end lost in dream, They float past our view, We only watch their glad, early start. Freighted with hope, Crimsoned with joy, We scatter the leaves of our opening rose; Their widening scope, Their distant employ, We never shall know. And the stream as it flows Sweeps them away, Each one is gone Ever beyond into infinite ways. We alone stay While years hurry on, The flower fared forth, though its fragrance still stays.
“I’d rather eat my soup with a fork or drive a cab to New York, ‘cause to talk to you is harder work. So what’s the point of wasting all my words if it’s just the same or even worse than reading poems to a horse?”—Shakira
This article explores the therapeutic uses of LSD before it became criminalized by the government. Apparently it was used in studies of schizophrenia — as it can sometimes simulate the symptoms of people who suffer from the disease — and was also being examined as a potential cure for alcoholism. Some are insisting that LSD should be brought back into the realm of medical research, for the benefit of psychologists and scientists alike. Personally, I think they should do as many studies on psychedelics as possible. They do amazing things to your brain. Why wouldn’t you want to know more about them? Especially if they have potential to be helpful in the medical field.

Little rose, roselet, at times, tiny and naked, it seems as though you would fit in one of my hands, as though I’ll clasp you like this and carry you to my mouth, but suddenly my feet touch your feet and my mouth your lips: you have grown, your shoulders rise like two hills, your breasts wander over my breast, my arm scarcely manages to encircle the thin new-moon line of your waist: in love you loosened yourself like sea water: I can scarcely measure the sky’s most spacious eyes and I lean down to your mouth to kiss the earth.
