No news is good news…in my case usually.

I’ve been looking at fabrics online for 3 days now.

I bought some of them and even scored some from the thrift store.

I suppose it’s time to get out the sewing machine and start making something!

I will be sending some of said fabric to an apron master so I can have a custom apron made so I can look and feel super cute making my homemade goodies that I started selling recently in a local coffee shop. How exciting!

The Sound of a Legend

Legend (1985) is a movie that will forever have a place in my psyche, but I give credit to the soundtrack just as much as I do the wonderful cinematography.

Take this memorable Darkness Seduction scene for example. Here it is with the US film version as scored by Tangerine Dream. This is why it is so appealing. It is totally seductive and fantastical. My friend agrees…

heatherbat: it being a waltz was a much better call, too…waltzes are seductive…they have a heartbeat rhythym to them. they make you sway.

This music makes it an intimate den of lust…

…however with the Director’s Cut score by Jerry Goldsmith, it seems more classical and formal. I do not get the sense of seduction as intimate as the previous version. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s totally possible to be seduced in a formal setting, but this isn’t Batman here, this is simply just a case of wonder without lust. If you’re going to be seduced by the Lord of Darkness himself, you gotta leave the choir out of the picture, because the sound of all those voices kind of turns it into a circus show with an audience…and voyeurism just doesn’t seem like Big D’s style.

Either way, Tim Curry’s voice certainly does not dampen the mood, but it DOES dampen other things. LOL

I’d rather be…at any of these places really…

I have travelled to a few places around the US of A and even bits of Canada and Mexico.

Unfortunately I have not had the pleasure of traveling to other continents, much to my dismay.

Regardless, I have seen some places that have wowed me and other places that aren’t so great but contain little glimmering jewels, hiding in  the rocks.

I will now share a few gems.

Napa Valley, CA

Palm Springs, CA

Lake Tahoe, CA

Sierra Nevada Highway, NV

Miami, FL

Secaucus, NJ – Train Station

Toronto, Canada

Somewhere in VA

Waffle House parking lot, LA

Nabisco factory, Philadelphia, PA

Dallas, TX

Staten Island Ferry, NYC

Nesting

Ah yes, getting settled in, trying to find just the right look.

Tweaking color palettes and sizing up images are not just for expectant mothers…

The Phoenix rises again.

The Golden Eagle has landed.

Whatever that means.
