Remember When

Remember when I promised that this post would be clad in a Smiths cover? Glad to hear you’re not suffering from dementia. I changed my mind. But here’s a cover of Flume by your very own MLC, instead! Hope you enjoy! …!

It’s Better To Be…

No, YOU!

It’s better to be a first-rate version of yourself than a second-rate version of someone else. Unless you’re Ahmadinejad. No one likes a mean dude with a temper. But because this here webblog isn’t centered on political controversy, if you dig the dinejad, that’s still A-OK by me!

Many times, I find myself pondering why so many of my most important relationships have failed, or why I try to compare myself to other people, or why my dry-cleaning from 4 days ago has not yet arrived. Although there are many elements that can be factored into each of the aforementioned questions, it all boils down to one recurring theme: the fear to accept and relentlessly demonstrate the unaltered, unapologetic version of Me.

In the learning processes that are our lives, there arrive moments during which those seemingly-fictitious-extremely-overused-i-love-my-adjectives-don’t-you sayings like, “be yourself!” hit you in the face faster than Rihanna’s face hit the dashboard of CB’s car. (Shit just got uber-controversial in here). The previously hidden meaning of such a saying can creep up behind you and make you realize that you’ve never really internalized it at all.

Photo not by me. Kind of cliche, kind of a nuance. Embrace the moment, people.

It is easy to lose yourself in the search for who you think you ought to be, especially in the world in which we live. You’ve just got to embrace the cool ol’ cat that you are, and take it one step at a time, until you get to your final destination. Concentrating on trying to perfect yourself is not selfish. When you focus on being the best that you can, independent of what you think the world expects from you, you are inadvertently contributing to an even better world.

And who doesn’t want to live in one of those??!?!!

It’s all a part of the process.

PS Remember that Smiths cover I promised you here? Coming real soon. Real REAL soon.

NY, I Love You

Things happen.  Then they don’t.  Then somewhere in between things happening and things not happening, you find yourself people watching whilst waiting for the 6 train, trying really hard not to yell at the uber-hot couple making out, that “IT’S ALL GONNA END, GET OUT WHILE YOU STILL CAN!” reflecting on all those things that did happen, with the burning desire to know where the $^*# it’s all going to take you.

As my trip back to the states so conveniently collided with several changes in my life, I have acquired sentimental value for my hometown of NYC.  There is an inexplicable beauty that you take notice of when revisiting remnants of your past.  It has changed, and you have changed, and your eyes suddenly see things and avoid things that were previously unseen and unavoided.

 

I have rediscovered parts of NYC that I hold dear to my heart.  The hidden gems, boutiques and people drove me to a realization that when revisited, most good, bittersweet, and sometimes even “bad” things, can hold elements to help guide you through your journey to where you want to, and ought to be.  Seeing old friends and family has made me to want to move ever forward with my goals and aspirations.  They are the forceful gust of wind, the unspoken whisper, validating that my foundation will be there to help me up when I fall, and fall again, until I can finally stand on my own.  Or fall without bruising.  I bruise like a peach, IGHT?!

Although I’m nostalgic for NYC, and my roots as one often-cynical-sometimes-snobby-shopaholic-who-grew-up-way-too-fast-for-anyone’s-good, girl, I’m excited to get back to Israel and resume working on my music.  I am going to take what I’ve seen, done, and learned, toss it into a huge bowl of fruit loops with 2% milk the mixing bowl that is my life, write more lyrics, and sing the shit out of them.  And maybe grow a pair and perform them, as well.  And on that note (musical innuendo, hardy har, shutup) here are some snippits of my trip back home.

Williamsburg Bridge. Crossed that shit like 15 times by foot. I got calves like a racehorse now!
