3 Vlogs for the price of one:)….cold, rain, coffee, chai, love, and music….


Helloooooo!  So, a few days ago, I woke up and was bored because it was hella cold outside and I didn’t want to get out of bed!  Instead, I decided to make some freestyle, impromptu vlog entries.  I wanted to experiment with stream of consciousness and just start saying whatever came to mind.  I recorded three and here they are.  WARNING: What you are about to see may be disturbing…..mainly because of my “I literally just woke up” hair and face:P!!!….and in case you may be wondering, no, I was not high when I made these he he.

Me, bitching….

Forgive her for she knows not what she says….

Yo…check out my freestyle….word.

Audiobiography: Share Your Life Through Sound


The Soundcloud Heroes, the group of creatives of which I have the honor to be a part of, have just launched a massive collaborative project called Audiobiography! Get to know the people behind the sounds, and share some of your own sounds.   The goal is to get as many people we possibly can to create and share their own, unique AUDIO-biography by March 31st!  We are going to be listening to/curating them all and will be featuring some on Soundcloud’s official blog.  It is a great way to “e-meet” people from all over the world and to let people in on who you are and what matters most to you.  There have been some thoughtful and incredibly inventive pieces submitted so far.  Here are a few that I really liked that are good examples:

I invite you to join in the project!  Make your own audiobiography and invite your friends to do the same.  Here’s how: http://blog.soundcloud.com/2013/02/06/audiobiography/

I have done my own audiobiography as well.  If you care to know who I am, I think this gets to the core:

Hope to hear your audiobiography and get to know more about you!

Helloooooo! Well, today was a long day and I still didn’t manage to get everything done on my “to-do” list :/, but I am here, I am alive, I’m breathing. There is a song in my heart, a smile on my face, and a fire in my belly…..I say, isn’t that what matters? So, we suck it up and move on and do what we can. So shall I do. Wrote a new song and it just might turn into something completely different from what it is now (an acoustic version). Possibly a reggae/dubstep version and as a collaboration with another artist/producer. We’ll see. In the meantime, here is a raw version of it…bare bare bones and all. It is all about my lovely Cali. I’ve been to many other states and lived in another country for a while, and though I love all the places I’ve been to (just about), Cali will always and forever be my first love and heart’s hometown. So, as a tribute, I wanted to write a song that painted a picture of the city coming alive and dancing and getting all the people up and dancing right along with it. That’s just the way I thought best describes living where I live. Hope you enjoy and I’ll be sure to post if the song gets transformed as I mentioned above. Have a wonderful rest of the week! Create, live, breath…its good for you!
