Hard to love

After a recent personality test, I’ve discovered that my Myers Briggs archetype is ENTJ (extroversion, intuition, thinking, judgement). It was hard to hear that my personality type has problems recognizing, utilizing a full emotion spectrum. That my opinionated, objective-seeking perspectives can be found as abrasive condescending. My Inner (lets be honest, exterior) drama queen was in full blown hysterics. How could such a simple concept be so illusive when my sub/un conscious mind should at the very least understand six basic emotions!! (Nerd Alert).

This new internal conflict was creating a narrative of shame and a tin man who was hard to love.

With the advocacy and current pushes for mental health initiatives, I’m trying to reduce these intrusive failure chronicle that needs a re-write to a story. Brush this shame off my shoulders.

Sic Transit Gloria…Glory Fades | Brand New

Sic Transit Gloria roughly translates from latin to english as passes the glory of the world.  That momentary power and fame are temporary and we should search not only in ourselves but in our world. That flights of fancy are just that – fleeting.  Pop Punk band Brand New has created a high art video not normally seen. The video still stands out about a decade later. Our director, Marc Webb, has gone on to direct 500 Days of Summer and The Amazing Spider-man featuring my favourite Gwen Stacy played by Emma Stone (Mary Jane can suck it).

View the Cover where Band We are the Crowd turns the song into a duet. Its a nice interpretation.

The Chemicals | I Need Your Heaven

Ms. Shirley Mason is back and writing for the next studio album.  The Chemicals features Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups. This track will remind you of trashing around in the disappearing underground scene.

Aphrodite’s siren smiles
She steals anything she likes
Everything you never said
Everything you never did
Everything you fantasized

The Chemicals, Garbage
