Remembering Lennon

Ever since I was a young girl my parents, especially my dad has en-grained in me what good music is. I truly was born in the wrong era because as a kid I never ever was able to understand or relate to music that was “trendy” or popular at the time. I was the kid who watch THE WHO’s TOMMY, The Yellow Submarine and The Labyrinth at such a young age. Movies that perhaps not many my age understood or bothered to even watch.

Today is the anniversary of John Lennon’s death. He died in 1980, before I ever was born, before my parents even met – before mom even was in high school, and yet his music speaks volumes to me. To this day I can’t listen to Imagine, Julia or Beautiful Boy without feeling some sort of sinking emotion in my chest.

I thank my dad for passing down his taste in music to us.

Damnit

I totally didn’t update last month – I suck ;o;!!! The fall was so busy with Oni-con, Thanksgiving holidays and now work has picked up. The last 3 days have been draining on me!!!

Since I didn’t talk about Halloween here is a quick review. Went to Oni-con and saw born and Satsuki live. Both were really good, especially born. The band were really aggressive and stage dived. We got to sit down and interview both Satsuki and born one on one. Probably one of my most nerve wrecking moments. I was scared. But both parties were fun and totally different. You can read the interviews here. We are having give aways and the prizes are signed Satsuki and born items.

Speaking of Shattered-Tranquility…Addy and I did a full redesign on the site. I think it has a more professional look – I really love it haha.

Thanksgiving came and went. Even though I don’t eat turkey I usually like Thanksgiving because we have really nice dinner for the holiday.

thanks

What else? OH it snowed yesterday! It rarely ever snows in my area so it was cool but I don’t really own a nice coat so I was cold ><;;
