Humanizing Man-Hood – Vin Diesel’s cover of Stay

I woke up to something that really warmed my heart. Mr. Diesel plays one of my favorite characters; Riddick. This video is the one in question: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5t-CmCwhZo My first reaction? I was trying to harmonize with him, he needed some back up. He was on pitch (when he was singing in the right octave) and seemed…

Death’s Dream

Clothed in the night, she walked amongst the hidden tribulations veiled thinly and pressed firmly into the world. Her eyes reflected only the stagnant light of stars long dead as she descended. She was the embodiment of darkness, skin rustic and ruddy that greedily soaked up the sun and glimmered like the full moon. She…

At Last – Cyndi Lauper Cover

At Last by Etta James has been stuck in my head all day so I got home and got on Youtube; one of the first results was a Cyndi Lauper cover, I clicked it while laughing and saying it was going to be a hot mess….I was wrong. Who knew Cyndi Lauper could blow like…

It Never Takes Long

Sara Bareilles is one of my favorite artists. I listen to this song almost every day. Lyrics: Something always brings me back to you it never takes too long No matter what I say or do I still feel you here till the moment I’m gone You hold me without touch keep me without chains…

Getting Late…

The siren’s voice in my ear beats as slowly as my heart, firm determination in her words matches nothing inside of me. My chest rises and falls with almost no purpose. She sings to me ” It’s late and I’m feeling so tired”. Its as if she’s here with me, travailing this unpaved road leading…
