Music Elves and the Embodiment of Music

Ever felt like you're less alone when listening to that one song you really love? That's because of the music elves! The music elves are engineered my biz execs and come in many forms. They use their dance magic and nice clothes to cast a "vibe" onto the listener. 

Though invisible to most outside of the "biz", ordinary folk definitely feel a music elf's presence. Music elves truly embody music and this SebastiAn video just illustrates that.

Music elves are real!!!

Soft Sweet Slow Song Sunday!

I might make this a thing. No promises. The idea is to post songs describable by these S words because alliterations are fun! I'll (maybe) post a relatively new, relatively unknown song each Sunday with a soft tone, sweet lyrics, slow tempo or any combination of the three and maybe sexy if applicable.

First up is 'Knees' by Peter and Kerry. I was just going to post the song but there was a video! So have that! More info on their website if you so desire.

Still not sure if I'll make this a thing though...

The Epiphany

Another Night
Another Night by Jermaine Headley
"I fell asleep reading a dull book and dreamed I kept on reading, so I awoke from sheer boredom."
Heinrich Heine

I was having another night staying up doing nothing important. Just finished watching Defranco Does Dublin  and I was thinking I should probably go to sleep now. Buuuut.... just didn't wanna... Why  though?

Suddenly, BOOM! I remembered a few nights ago I actually did go to bed early when I had not much else to do. Or rather I went "to sleep", going "to bed" with my laptop on is a different situation. Point is, I couldn't sleep. I had my eyes closed, lying in bed for what seemed like at least over an hour. Maybe two.

It was finally all kind of clear. This is why I stay up all the time. It's hard to fall asleep unless my eyes get too heavy to keep open. Armed with new knowledge, the question is no longer "why don't I want to go to sleep at night?" and is instead "why do I find it so hard to fall asleep?". Inconsequential to most I'm sure but for me... GROWTH!

Sleep, my love, we can fix this! We can make it work!

The Dream Mixtape, Hello Again

photo by Mikko Miettinen

Oh, I haven't forgotten about the blog and haven't abandoned it. In fact I return so often. I just couldn't push myself to create more regardless of the ideas I had.

This blog became work. Your blog should never be considered work or it's bound to fail. Rather than force myself to produce something, I waited & allowed myself to dream again.

I created this for my newest post and I was going to add so much more then I realized I was falling into the same trap that caused the extended absence. I'm not going to pad it and make it look like more than it is. I have it so I'll present it.

Here I present to you an idea I've had swirling around in my head for at least over 9 months now, The Dream Mixtape.

Mentor Needed, Apply Within

“Mentor: Someone whose hindsight can become your foresight”

Guide needed for socially misguided youth who needs help figuring out humans as social beings. Pay?: "It's own reward"?


I lag behind when it comes to social situations. I can relate to Socially Awkward Penguin way too often. I'm introverted so I know I will never really be a socialite. That's not what I want to be anyway; I only need to at least learn how to react in common social situations, right?

I lived in isolated environments for most of my life, which I assume helped to form my personality. I grew to love it even though it lead to less social interactions than I probably needed when I was younger. Social interactions that, might I add, can teach you certain things.

I realized recently that I'm the youngest person on the main staff at my work place. In many situations there's a generation gap but there's a little something else. A level of social interaction that I missed the lesson on, constantly reaffirming my naivete.

Which Button Makes Me Social?

I never had somebody that I really wanted to be like at any point in my life; I had nobody to emulate. I thrust myself into social situations and hope I figure out how to swim. Luckily, I float along but there's always some key I'm missing. A key that I'm sure one can't figure out on their own.

I've had to socialize myself, pretty much. I picked and chose stray parts for my enigma of a personality from experiences I never quite got right or things I saw on tv. I have no strict personal code. I'm way too tolerant of everything. I let little things get to me. And don't get me started on this concept of amorous love. I'm not completely sure what I stand for and you know where that leads...

This Looks Like a Job For..

That's why I think I need some kind of guru to point me in the right direction. I'm relatively young and I know there are people older than me who've been past this. I'm seeking somebody to impart their hindsight. Applications are open. Seriously (kind of)... email on the about page
