🥀 [outfit video in story] As we walked through the Joshua Trees in Lancaster, we came across a raggedy old couch in the middle of nowhere. People passed by it without a second glance. It looked like the habitat for the furry (or the not so furry) critters ready to pop out on a moments notice. ———————————————— On first glance I noticed a cigarette butt hole and an old food stain. But upon closer inspection, I started to notice its beautiful but faded velvet teal material. The couch must have had its glory days in which it was a beautiful accent chair in someone’s living room. I couldn’t help but feel sorry for the couch: cast away, sitting in front of these trees as it faded away in the bright sunlight. I took a step back and noticed the art it created. The way the couch was placed in front of these gorgeous trees somehow reminded me of me. A worn cast away still sitting amongst the beauty in this world. 👈🏻 Like this chair, I still hope to gravitate towards the beauty this life can provide. Positioning myself so delicately among kindred spirits who may be scarred but refuse to let it suppress their beauty. On this Wednesday, I continue to examine my perceptions and paradigms, for beauty comes in all forms, even a chair in the middle of the desert. 🙌🏻Half way to the weekend, fam! If you’ve been having a rough week, hang in there and remember, I love you guys, always. ♥️

Underprivileged raised east L.A. poor drastically Dale, upon Easter Monday severely enormously, avaricious affluent little beach town Cardiff-by-the-Sea off Highway 101 at Cardiff State Beach near Seaside Beach. and Cardiff Reef beach end of the entrance of the San Elijo Lagoon. cityofencinitas encinitaschamber Across the lagoon is San Elijo State Beach, where the top richest camper families pretend to be “camping” in their extravagant plush sky-high, exorbitant recreational vehicles.

Happy Monday! It's easy to get on social media and see other musicians doing awesome things in music and to feel like you have to compare yourself. I think it's natural to feel this way. I’m guilty, I’ve gone on instagram and thought “wow there are so many great guitarists out there, so and so has more chops in his pinky than I do in my whole body”. Don’t compare yourself. Here is an exercise you can try to see how far you have really come as a guitarist from day one. Try this out if you are ever feeling a little bummed about your 🎸 playing. It's an instant gauge to give you perspective. I don't usually do videos like this but I thought I would share this cool exercise. Give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below ⬇️. Do you have any exercises you do when you feel bummed out about your playing? See the full video on Youtube at the link in bio! 🎸 🎶

Almost soaked 👡👡🌊 . I’m born as an islander. I’m born in Taiwan. I miss my close friends and worried about my country’s independence everyday. There’s nothing I can do to the division of people there. I chose to escape, escape to another foreign country where I still need an ID to buy cigarettes, a foreign country that I was traumatized by the system, a country I cannot resist the calling to be a grown up. Whereas, also a country that my talents are expected and I as a liberated spirit am respected. I’m an islander from Asia, I speak English now 24/7, who am I? Who I want to become? immigrants islander onmyown losangeles losangelesmusician losangelescomposer independentwoman femalecomposer femalemusician retrospect bestrong strongwomen growingup recordlabel indie indiemusic independentmusician igerslosangeles

Today's 2-pt TLDpajamajam (by request of abitdicier) is countingcrows' catahartically-yelly "Angels Of The Silences". I remember a time in highschool when I wanted to cover this, but my voice just wouldn't go that high. Sure, there are still a couple of yelps, but with years or practice I've managed to turn back the clock on pubertyladies. Also, I had to throw in the nod to nofx's "Linoleum" near the endbases were just loaded for that one. Also also, sorry for the wretched cut between the two parts; it was the only way to get it all inladies ::|:: .

For the longest time I wasn’t sure if LA was ever going to grow on me. It didn’t. I grew to to meet it instead. After being fortunate enough to have moved and lived in so many different cities, the one thing that’s for sure is that I could be unhappy anywhere. Of course the environment could impact me differently in its own way but the bottom line is if I had kept on chasing a city that would make me happy, there wouldn’t be a single place for me in this world. I often felt as if I was running in circles just to eventually fail in the same manner. Maybe it’s a few months or a few years where I find myself sitting on the floor of my bedroom thinking “how did I end up here AGAIN?” Well something clicked the other day. It occurred to me that every success or victory feels different from the last no matter how big or small, and it’s the recognition of that difference that will help me recognize that those failures are also different. That I’m not running in circles. Rather, I’m just facing the obstacles that are placed along a linear road 📸 by hey.mickie

Understand this. A man, the right man- will do anything to help, fix or anticipate a need in a woman's world. The right man doesn't need much from her, just for her to be his backbone when the world attacks us men. A woman who loves purely can receive the best gift a man can give- his love. But BOTH have to have the same state of mind and want the same. Both need to match each others efforts and most importantly love with no reserves Losangelesmusic losangelesmusic losangelesmusicians losangelesmusicscene losangelesmusicagent losangelesmusician clouet stclaude oldmckenzies quietside neworleans dallas houston rap realrap 2018 bars songwriter music newmusic atlantamusic atlmusic houstonmusic newyorkmusic miamimusic dallasmusic detroit cali philly recordlabel
