    Love’s In Need of Love Today

    Having decided long ago that, regardless of anything else this legendary singer/songwriter/genius could create from now until ... forever, this album will remain as his most special of his incredible works.

    Five Rock Bands Making A Comeback

    Five Rock Bands Making A Comeback

    Many rock artists from the late 90's - early 2000's are making their way back into the world with new songs, covers, and tours. For some reason, I have yet to uncover, many of the famous musicians from the early 2000's fell of the grid until the past two or three years when many of them have once again taken to the stage.

    Overcrowded thoughts buzzing around in my head the whole day. Panic energy zooming around inside me as the day progresses. Just wishing the day would end but knowing tomorrow will be the same cycle of panic.

    How Linkin Park’s ‘Waiting For The End’ Helped Me Find Closure and a New Outlook on Life

    How Linkin Park’s ‘Waiting For The End’ Helped Me Find Closure and a New Outlook on Life

    We all have dreams. Goals that we set ourselves so our lives have a sense of meaning and something to look forward to when we wake up early in the morning, ready to face a new day. How many times haven’t you replayed, in your head, a scenario or situation that you wish it to become true. What happens when, after all the time and effort you invested, the outcome is not what you expected? We strive always for success but do you consider the possibility of failure? We prepare ourselves all our lives to succeed, but are we prepared to lose?

    Just thinking about this song gives me goosebumps. Badflower became one of my favorite bands after hearing this song, just because of the rawness and absolute power that was put into this song. And after hearing this incredible piece of music, I had to listen to the rest of their album, OK, I'm Sick, and I fell in love with that.

    Sucker for Jonas Brothers

    Sucker for Jonas Brothers

    I was in junior high school when everyone was obsessed with the Jonas brothers. All the girls had some sort of crush on each of the Jonas brothers, fights in the halls would break out because another girl claimed she had kissed one of them, but let's face it we are all liars when it comes to that. I never had a crush on any of them, their hair cuts were weird or too curly. I did like their music and their funny music videos I was a different type of fan girl. I was busy memorizing their songs and picturing me singing them during a talent show all by myself. I knew "SOS", "four minutes" and of course the "year 3000" my sisters and me would practice singing the songs because they were upbeat and fun. I remember we would use the spatula and other kitchen utensils to sing the Jonas brothers. The first song I discovered was from a disney album when they sang a rock and roll version of "poor unfortunate souls" I just thought this is cool there are three brothers and they are in a band, me and my sisters could do that if we were talented. Before I knew it they were starting to be on every cover of teen magazines and there were quizzes to tell you which Jonas brother you should date or which one are you? I hated these quizzes because they were inaccurate and weird. My and friends and I did the which Jonas brother are you supposed to be with, one of my closest friends had a huge crush on Nick Jonas and on the quiz I came to be a "flirt" with Nick Jonas. She just glared at me as I said we are getting married, but I did not find any of them attractive, my friend knew that yet for a week she was upset with me. I was all about Josh Hutcherson, so I could have cared less. Anyways, then high school came around and the Jonas brothers had faded no one had pictures of them in their lockers anymore, it moved on to the leader singer of Maroon 5, but I was still crushing on Josh Hutcherson. High school passed and everyone seemed to forget about the Jonas brothers when I searched them up one day to see where they were I found out Kevin Jonas got married so the group broke up and then Joe Jonas was sadly attempting a solo CD, which was awful and weird. Nick had somehow fallen off the face of the earth. Years later, I discovered a song called "Cake by the Ocean" and the leader singer was no one other than Joe Jonas and he was much more attractive now. When I was listening to the song first I recognized that voice with the slightly higher pitch, the heard breaths of him getting air into his lungs. It had to be Joe Jonas and I looked it up and certainly there he was throwing cake at a beach. Then, the song "Toothbrush" came out and it was just as fun I was hoping for more songs that would get me happy, but then it was announced that the Jonas brothers were getting back together and that's when "Pom, Poms" came out and that was six years ago now. Finally, the song that I had been waiting for came. The song titled as "Sucker" I watched the video over and over again I could not believe my ears. Unmistakably was Nick Jonas voice, then Joe joins in almost like the good old Jonas brothers days. With Kevin's support vocals were there too and the fun clapping part of the song and the easy sing-along lyrics the funky tune in the background brought the music back to life, now where does this song change my life? well, you see there are so many artists that have come and gone. I used to listen to Jesse McCartney, but then with the Jonas brothers his music faded and he has tried to make a come back but it was not very successful. Justin Timberlake was stepping away from the stage and made an amazing comeback just as the Jonas brothers did. It changed my life because it proved that after years of being broken up, they managed to pull back together and still make pretty good music. Instead of recording a failing album they managed to come back strong. It reminded me that life can be hard, sometimes we fade, but then there will always be a big boom to bring you back from it. No matter what it is that you stop, you will eventually go back to it. For example, if you used to play piano a lot as a child and then you stopped because it was not fun and then you get back to it and you found that love again from when you first touched the keys. We can always go back to our passion no matter how long it has been, even if we forgot how to love our passion, we can always come back to it.

    "Home" Is Where the Art Is

    "Home" Is Where the Art Is

    The perfect parent doesn’t exist. There will never be a guardian with flawless parenting or the supernatural sense of knowing exactly what their children need all the time. However, every parent and child will come to experience the bittersweet fact of life called pain. Pain echoes in the hearts of the emotionally neglected with a perfect resonance that could bond them or break them. It transforms our relationships with one another and our relationship with life. That echo has reverberated for generations. In my time, the echo thrust into me through the song “Home” by Three Days Grace and it not only woke me to the pain I didn’t understand or know how to express, but also acted as my personal catalyst for self-expression and retrospection through the arts and friendship.
