Even though you deserved to be happy and healthy and with your brother and his girlfriend in the bunker. I’m sorry you had to suffer for two seasons straight and didn’t get the arc of happiness and health that you so rightfully deserved.
I hope you and Maya are jamming and breathing fresh air where you two may be.
In Memory of Diana,

I give her back to God with my love, my pride and my admiration. Rest in peace.”

Nobody who knew Diana will ever forget her.” Sarah, Duchess of York: “I have lost a sister. Diana was my best friend.

Our thoughts are with her family and her two sons.” Former first lady Hillary Clinton: “I will miss the pride in her voice, when she discussed her sons.

“Just that,” said the fox. “To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you, I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world …”

Rest In Peace my sweet love Marley. 💔

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007, Tim Burton)
“Everything was fine until I actually had to shave someone, and
lathering up Alan Rickman was one of the most uncomfortable moments of
my life. Alan wasn’t screaming, but he was close. I think he
really didn’t enjoy it, so in that sense I’m sure he hated working with
For over two decades, I was looking for that film that would make me go from Johnny Depp is a decent enough actor to oh my! he’s amazing. Considering Alan Rickman (rest in peace, my sweet prince) has been my favourite actor for many years, the simple fact I liked JD more here speaks volumes.
Alan Rickman was my biggest idol, favorite actor, my platonic love. Carrie was one of the most awesome women I’ve ever seen, a true rolemodel and a terrific person (she even liked some of my tweets, I mean, what other princess does that?). I’m not sure if they ever met, but I did this as a tribute. Rest in Peace, Alan and Carrie. My Hald Blood Prince and my Princess Leia.
“You can split music into two groups: before Prince & after Prince”
I feel numb. I haven’t had coffee in a few months & this morning I’m having one. I think the tears are done. Just to think two months ago I was in the presence of this beautiful soul.
Read this if you wanna learn something real about the man, I need to remind everyone who he was to the world because many people don’t actually know what he was past being a ‘singer’ & also how he affected my life.
Prince wasn’t just a musician. He was music. Every word he sung, he composed. Every instrument he played was self taught. Every song he produced & arranged himself, & he even sung his own back-up vocals.
He left a legacy of music, over 30 albums & 30 tours to his name with a yearly output since the late 70’s, not to mention thousands of unreleased songs, documentaries, pro-shot gigs & movies in that fucking vault at his 55,000 sq ft recording studio. Who’s gonna break in?
On top of his own career, he had more musical proteges than you can count that represented different facets of his personality & were used as a musical outlet so he didn’t overload the industry. He indulged in EVERY SINGLE GENRE of music created & ended up conquering it better than those who stayed primarily in that certain lane, not to mention being the pioneer of a genre (the ‘minneapolis sound’) of music that changed the music industry forever.
He broke not only racial barriers (‘Little Red Corvette’ was the first black video to play on MTV alongside Michael Jackson, Warner Bros. said they’d pull every single video off air if MTV didn’t play them & as to the significance of the artists on their label at the time, they abided) but also gender lines by having a multi-cultural male & female band (which included the hottest lesbian couple ever) while rocking crop-tops, high heels, panties, thigh-highs & eyeliner better than your girl.
He was also very controversial. Once he landed the LARGEST deal in recording/music publishing history then, soon after, rejected it by changing his entire identity/name to an unpronounceable symbol & started recording music under a new persona as a big FUCK YOU to the record companies.
He was the FIRST EVER to have a #1 album, #1 film & #1 single consecutively in the U.S.
Also. He inspired Al Gore’s wife to start the ‘parental music resource center’, the reason why music is censored & we have ‘explicit’ labels on album artwork!
So no. He wasn’t just a singer. He was the most prolific musician to walk this earth.
For me myself, he shaped me as the person I am today.
He taught me what it means to be a woman & how to own my sensuality, emotion & desire.
He taught me to never assume & preconceive, just to be in the present moment & run with it.
He taught me to open my mind, things are never as they appear.
He taught me that limitations & restrictions are man-made theories & that I can achieve anything I put my mind to.
He taught me different is beautiful.
He taught me that sexuality & spirituality go hand-in-hand.
He taught me to believe in myself & stand for what I deserve.
He taught me there’s nothing wrong with being a little freaky.
He taught me to widen my music taste & indulge in genres I wouldn’t think twice of listening to without his influence.
He taught me how to accept, respect & love my entire divine being.
It’s scary to think who I’d be if I never found him.
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. –John 14:27
In the modern, fast-paced world that we live in, there are always things to do: Drive the kids to school, make important phone calls, answer work emails, attend meetings, cook dinner, do the laundry, pay the bills…the list goes on.
It seems like we have so many responsibilities that it’s really difficult to not let our hearts be troubled by any one of them. But do you know what the Lord says about all this? He says that our only responsibility is to guard our hearts, and He’ll take care of the rest.
Meditate on this for a while: Our only responsibility is to guard our hearts and God will guard everything else. We guard our hearts on the inside, and whatever is on the outside, God will guard. So don’t worry about what’s happening on the outside. If your peace and restfulness depend on how things on the outside fair for you, the devil will have a field day with you because what’s on the outside is usually beyond your control.
Learn to guard your heart from being troubled and let God take care of the rest. Note that Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled…” So you are to let not your heart be troubled. No one else can do it for you. Meditate on His promises and love for you until they take root in your heart. It may take practice, but keep at it and you will find an inner peace and strength to face each day’s challenges and come out on top!
I had to say goodbye to Fox today. He was only a year and six months old.
I dont usually post super personal stuff on the internet unless I feel like its necessary. This is one of those times since I’ve shared Fox on here and twitter so much.
I woke up today to Fox chewing at my hair, playing around to get me out of bed. I got up, fed him, put water in his bowl, and went to get some lunch. I came back, ate lunch and Fox was sitting by me and turning on his back to try and get me to give him some food. It never worked, no matter how cute and fluffy his is.
I have some work to do before I head to ECCC, so I worked on the piece and then took a break. I needed to go to the store, so I got ready to go. Fox always wants you to say goodbye before you leave to go anywhere, so I gave him his kisses and as I’m leaving I thought to myself, “See you in a few.”
I went to the store, came back, and found Fox lying by his bowl. He wasn’t moving.
I screamed so loud the neighbors ran over. We rushed him to the emergency vet clinic, but by the time we got him there it was too late. They had tried to resuscitate him, but he was already gone. He wasn’t even two years old yet, he would of been two years old in September. I’ve never screamed like that before.
I’m having him cremated.
Fox is my baby, my love, and the light of my life. He was always there for a snuggle whenever I was sad. I’ll never forget his beautiful green eyes, the beautiful white fur, his pink nose with the little black spot on it, his tiny squeak of meows, and those big three dots on his back. He’ll always be my baby.
He may have been a cat, but he was MY cat. My baby. I loved him so much.
