Who’s with me?
Debussy – CLAIRE DE LUNE
Barbra Streisand – NY STATE OF MIND
Originally done by Billy Joel, but with Babs, everything is a little better…

Something about this song makes me think like I was born immediately as it came on television.
I was in love with Roger from Sister Sister…
IMMATURE – WE GOT IT
GYPTIAN – HOLD YUH
ESTELLE & KANYE – AMERICAN BOY
I finally took my writing ideas to film by entering a contest for John Mayer and I love it!!!!! I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help of my friend who played Olivia, Erika Hofman, my crazy lovable friend also in the video, Elizabeth Schwartz, and of course the wonderful people & places of NYC. Click the pic below to check out the video and please… Enjoy!
JONI MITCHELL – BOTH SIDES NOW
Mainly makes me sad because of how I heard it the first time in the scene from Love Actually, then quickly associated it with any sad love moment in my life all at once. Either way, its a beautiful song…
Matthew Wilder – Break my Stride
My go to song for life, if I’m ever feeling down or need a quick Tony Robbins, pep, this is the one…
Marcy’s Playground – SEX & CANDY
I’m not sure if it’s about drugs, but to me it is…
The Cars – Drive
The title makes it seem easy, but it really does make me miss having a car for those night time rides with my emo playlists…
KES – WOTLESS
This is my friends band from Trinidad. Hes pretty much blown up and worldwide and too cool for me by now, but either way, I have pictures to prove we hung out lol!
IGY – DONALD FAGEN
I think it annoys me more that this song is cheesy and reminds me of someone…
Sublime – 40 OZ TO FREEDOM
From Get Him to the Greek
I wish this could play on the radio…
Watching the doc “Talihina Sky” made me think of what it was like to grow up with a mother who was all about the Bible and leading a life for God away from the devil down in Georgia. I was ready to run always, waiting for my first taste of freedom away from the life of a Sunday School girl. After watching the Kings of Leon’s story coming from a similar place made me think different and how lucky I was to have that. A foundation in the south. I might have gone out to Miami and dabbled around and partied a little harder than my mother would approve, but at the end of the day I’m still the little girl from Redan Elementary, chasing rabbits and eating honey suckles. No matter where I am, no matter who Im with, no matter what Im wearing, its still the same old me. Sometimes I need a reminder. For now it will be this song, because the second you forget your roots is the second you forget who you are.
Love the New Rihanna video but it seems a bit familiar to me. Alot like my favorite english show, Skins and the couple Liv and Matty.
I want to be her when I grow up.
