You know how an artist can affect you in so many ways… Well for people who know me, Linkin Park is one of them, what I mean is when I listen to their music somehow they reach me, their music has evolved and I’ve changed with it… It’s not only that every time a new album comes out I’m excited to hear it but it’s more of what they’ve acomplished, as persons and as a band, since the begining and here I’m not only talking about the music but what they got involved with, the causes they support, they’ve created a non-profit orgaisation called Music for Relief, which helps people all around the world when a disaster strikes… For exemple when the Tsunami hit Japan they asked other artist to donate a song and with that they’ve created an album that you could download for minimum 10$ (you could give more if you wanted too) and all proceeds went to aid Japan. They’re involved with Habitate for Humanity as well. Recently they’re supporting the cause Power the World which is a great cause to help bring power to the world… Just to name a few. Also a few of the band members also have side projects… And they’re always so greatful of their fans and they respect them!
Sure when I started listening to them as a teenager for other reasons a teenage girl listens to a band… But with time I kept listening and buying their albums for other reason, mainly cause they make great music that reaches me in so many ways and every album sounds different!
Sure I’m still in the fan club, sure I still get excited when they come into town for a show, sure I will sing along at the show, but I wont faint if they touch me, I wont want to get into a fight with you cause you’re trying to get closer, unlike groupies I wont try to find out where they’re staying and fallow them everywhere, because that’s not what I am…
I’m not trying to make you like them or be a fan, I’m just trying to explain to you why I like them, I doubt I was able to do it properly but hey at least I tried!
It’s funny how only a hair cut can make a difference… I mean we all know it can change your looks but what I’m talking about here is how a new hair cut can mean a change in your life. In my case every time I go for a drastic change with my hair it means something has or needs to change in my life, it’s either that I don’t like what’s going on or I need new “adventures” in my life, by new “adventures” I don’t necessarily mean going away on vacations, but more something along the line of having new stories in my life.
So I went to see my hairdresser last Friday and asked her to “chop-chop” the hair, I literally said “chop-chop”, so I went from “middle of my back” long hair to “elbow” short hair! She asked me if I really wanted to do it, cause she new I wanted to let them grow, I said yes their getting on my nerves I can’t do anything with them anymore, but what I should of said is something along the lines of : Yes I’m sure, I need some change in my life… So short I went! Before I went for my appointment, I told some people about getting my hair cut and that I wanted them shorter, but I don’t think people taught I would have them that shorter, personally today I’m thinking I should of went shorter. I know you all want to know the reason why I cut it then… Well I’m not going to tell you why, but all I’m going to say is this, there are some things in my life that need to change and not the other way around… Perhaps it’s the people around me that need to change or I need to make a life changing decisions.
I still need to figure out how I’m going to do it, but step one is done, so it’s a good start. Now all have I have to do is step two… I might sound sad or depressed but actually I feel great, it’s like a hair cut therapy!
Here we are… I know I haven’t been here in a while, but here I am again, this will be a place where I’ll be sharing some spontanious pictures of my life and taughts!
I’ve started this for no particular reason, I just felt like I needed a place where I could write what I have on my mind, what I think about what’s going on in the world or even just something random that I think is funny or that I’ve found on the net… So I don’t promise that there will be a post every single day but I’ll try to do my best to post something regularly.
So I’ll start with something random that I’ve read in the newspaper the other day, there was an article about the Canadians, not the people living in Canada but the team. So here’s what they were saying…
So it’s a well known fact that this year the Habs are celebrating their 100th Anniversary, so everyone knows that they would really like to win the Stanley Cup this year, it would a nice way of celebrating it! So it’s one of the factor that we can “smell” the success they will have this year. But there’s more to it, if you really wanna know how much they’re Big this year, just take the pulse of all the hockey fans that aren’t Canadians partisans. Seriously if a little of steam comes out of their ears and they “heat up” a little bit it’s a good sign for “La Flanelle”. This team with it’s successful past has a great load of fans, across Quebec, Canada and even across the World but the same thing happened the other way around, they also gained a lot of “haters” that wishes they won’t win the Cup each year. But since the past few years the Habs had problems to even get to the playoff, so the “Haters” didn’t need to worry… but now that the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge is back on top the anti-montreal will be back! But on the other side, there might be a good load of Hockey Fans, that aren’t necessarily Canadians Fans, would really appreciate that they would win this year. Success very often attracts resentment. Certain people have difficulty to see the others succeeding where they fail. Then again, ordinary team partisans put all their anger on the clubs that would likely be the one to raise the Cup. So this is what explains why the Habs were so easy to hate. The fact that more and more people wish evil to the Canadians shows at which point this team can excel.
So I say GO HABS GO!!! 😀
