A New 30 Days

I am thinking of starting a new challenge this upcoming month. However, it won’t be a daily song challenge, but a POETRY challenge. I wanted to start this so I can practice writing every day. I technically write every day in my English classes, but I feel that it doesn’t fulfill my creative outlet. I saw this specific challenge on this blog. It wasn’t in a text form so I went through the days and wrote down the challenge and created this picture 🙂

30days_of_poetry

I am not sure if I want to start it during the last week of October or in the beginning of November (probably November). But you’ll know once I start posting from the first day. I will try my best to keep consistency! My passion is to write which is one of the reasons why I started this blog to post about my life, my poetry, and about music. I feel this project will help maintain creative flow. We all feel tired and stressed and sometimes we forget to do something for ourselves.

For you, you seem alone, and I’ve known many like you

I’ve lived with many like you.

And I feel like you

Till I am not like you

Or me

 

And asked a question of how to see you.

The woven lungs and snowflakes hide the strain

And as you drain

and drain

 

The stains of mental drain is a blood bath

It cleans and gleams on the reflection of my iris

The expectations of the tenderness of skin and meat are so unlikely

It doesn’t tear but rather

breaks apart

 

They can’t bite the fact that this is what I am

The inedible definitions does not nurture their minds

Its dry and sticky and far from replenish

Swallow my teeth to see if it grows in thier head

And seasons bring the ripest one of all

 

Till again I am covered in my own blood.

MAC DEMARCO AND THE GARDEN

ON OCTOBER 1 I attended a concert for one of my most favorite artists ever

MAC DEMARCO!

What I forgot was that The Garden is touring with Mac Demarco’s group. I bought these tickets to ACL Live about maybe six months ago and what I only new what that The Flamming Lips was performing with a opening performance of Mac Demarco (which is who I really wanted to see, but I do like The Flamming Lips). Anyway, I had no idea that The Garden was going to perform. The week before the concert I kept getting emails reminding me to print my tickets before the concert. At the end of the email it had the line up which was:

The Garden 8:00

Mac Demarco 8:50

Flamming Lips 10:40

And I completely flipped out. My boyfriend told me not to get my hopes up. But why would they even put that in the email? Was my ticket finally fully worth what I was paying for. And what do you know…….The Garden came out and did an amazing set. Nothing could describe how happy I was to see them. Me and RJ where up in the balcony assigned seating in the first row so the view was perfect. The only problem was that no one in the balcony wanted to stand and jam out. Technically the population of the crowd was 80% in their forties with no idea who Mac Demarco or The Garden was. Me and RJ were itching so bad to stand up but we didn’t because we would block people behind us. Next time though, we will see Mac in the pit. Damn, I can’t even describe the feeling when I saw him, it was so surreal.

SOTW #21

Welcome to a new segment of the SOTW.

For this week Ive been listening to random radio playlists and stations based on the songs that I like and artists I follow. Lately I just come upon really great and amazing songs that makes me feel something. The genre is somewhat the same but it makes me happy and feel good. I try my best to listen to a new song every day or every week. Sometimes a new artist finds it’s way to me every day, or even a new album. I got to stay fresh when it comes to music. But I still do love my personal favorites 🙂

Is This What You Can Not Do? by Gold Celeste

SOTW #18

Hello, I know it is past mid week but here is some new songs I heard while watching a YouTube video. I would have put something that I’ve been listening to over and over, but I already mentioned those before. Who wants redundancy.

So far I’ve been listening to

Keep Kool by Winona Forever

winona_forever

Surfin’ with U by Selmer

selmer_surfin'

While I was listening to this song it led to a whole station with songs similar to this type of music and I started liking every song that played. I’ll mention them in another post. I hope everyone has a great day! Enjoy

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

Stage 2

But the next day comes

And I find it better with people

If me -myself- and I

were to keep holding the boulder

It doesn’t matter and distracts,

when a few words from you, him, and her

make me work harder

 

But the day passes by

and I find I am still tacked

rather than filled and webbed with the

cracks

I can’t remember once I talk about it twice

thrice

What it was that made me sigh

And I realized that my mind

lies

Stage 1

 

I strive and strive

And after I fake my way

there is still a crack and shapes my mould.

I can only perceive the heat that burns

and ice never seems to clam me down

maybe lavender might do the trick.

And lather it over the bathe

but still the skin cracks

and fills in

Must be from the tears and continued

collapse

SOTW #14

Newest song of the week comes from a soundtrack of a movie called Inherent Vice directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. I may have talked about this before, and I seen this movie a while ago but the song never fails.

Amethyst by Johnny Green Wood

From the moment I heard this song I fell in love with it, it really is something beautiful.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

Hey Everyone! SOO Tyler the Creator just released a new album this month. This is literally the only thing I have been listening too! I also got interested in other songs of his from his past albums. I am serious, this albums makes me feel things. Like my heart is crying from how beautiful music is, in general. And I feel that Tyler has brought something into this world that I needed to hear and need to have. I’m even inspired to write more poetry with how I feel about these songs of Flower Boy.

These are the songs that have broken my repeat button

See You Again by Tyler The Creator

Image result for see you again tyler the creator

Another song that I love although it is sad is:

IFHY from the album WOLF

I have found a new artist that I love, and I think I will love fro a long time. Im excited to actually memorize lyrics to rap because these lyrics speak to me and my loner emotions. Let me know what songs are in your mind! Share this if you like these songs, if not then tell me a song I should listen to!

Give it a listen, give music a chance

SOTW #12

Hey it has been a while since I have done one of these but I have been really into this this song lately and I can’t stop listening to it.

Lately I’ve been into Tyler The Creator and he has recently released some new songs and singles. These are ones that I have enjoyed

Mr.Lonely/ 911

and also

Boredom

I really enjoy his music, its something different. It is actually something that I’ve been looking for, to listen too. It’s just the right amount of rap and music together.

Enjoy

Give it a listen, Give music a chance.
