Hi everybody...how are you? I am going to write this message in a diary/jornal style, just so it feels more personal...Here is your quirky pop artist journal entry of the day. I am in los angeles rrecording my new album...woohoo!!! It is very exciting...I am thinking and writing and recording everyday...I hope to be finishing it up in the next couple of months...It's got lots of surprises, so I can't tell you too much right now, but let's just say it's a whole lot of fun!!!!!! It is a whole other side of me!!! I have been going to shows here and there...the K'naan show, the K-Os Show, the Death From Above show with Controller Controller in Victoria, BC. Death from above were musically brilliant- super modern- but at the same time- organic- metal...takes you away like few things do..practice responsibly...Right now I am listening to the new Queens of The Stone Age cd...it is soo nice..love the slow mellow song..."why'd ya have to shove it in my face"...ooh...I missed the show, though..damn! I cannot wait for the new System of a Down record to come out mid-may...I loved the last one...I have heard bits of the M.I.A Album and it is so cool..what a flow, what a style...and girl can dance!!!I have to go to Amoeba records down the street from the studio...and get some new shiny c.d's...I use my Ipod, but I love buying real c.d.'s and listening to them in my car.....Oh!!! Did I mention Feist?...I love that album.,.I loved it so much a couple of months ago that i actually accidentally rear-ended an empty parked car in a parking lot...listening to Feist's beautiful voice..I should not be telling you this...So do not listen to Feist while driving, or do it at a low volume, anyway..Do not worry..no one was hurt, and I did not run away..I waited in the cold for the owner...yep it's true..haha!!!
Oh, I just recorded a song with Jellestone called "Friend Of Mine"..It's really cool...Swollen and I are supposed to do a new song together soon...I recorded a track with K'naan for my album...yippee!!! Thanks to Orange studios for all the yummy food.
Lots of love...fave magazines right now?..Mothering magazine, Adbusters and Utne.....I read them in the bathroom...but I also like Canadian House and Home...while listening to Death From Above..haha!! I am thinking of starting my own internet magazine with really great, , inside interviews from artists, politicians, activists, garbage men, gardeners, heroes, and villians, teenagers, the elderly...People.period. Hey..that's what I will call it. People Period. Oooh lala just bought some really cool art in Miami..Miami has art everywhere!!!!!!! I went there and worked with the Neptunes......just Pharrell, actually.....and he is a boy wonder genious.....clothes? I like shopping at American Apparel for simple shirts of every color...and the sweatshop-free thing just wins me over every time!!!!!! I have been meeting some amazing people lately on the street who have wonderful stories...thanks to the man in Van for the picture of the Orca killer whales!!!! By the way, thanks to everyone who has been helping to save the Sooke Potholes!!!!!! I am going to be getting some wonderful things to auction from some B.C. entertainers..I would really love a signed basketball from Steve Nash.....Anyway, lets' get back to the music. Would you like to hear some tentative new song titles from my new album?
