Mazzy Star returns after 17 years

So as many of you know, I'm a major fan of Mazzy Star. Growing up, I would here their music play and it was very mellow and thought provoking for me at the time. It still is.

They are set to release a new album in September; a music video in August; and a fall tour to support their new album. The new album is aptly named "Seasons Of Your Day". It's their first full album since their major breakthrough album; "So Tonight That I Might See" which was released in 1993.

I'm super excited for this album and it seems they will be peering into a darker side but with Hope still blessing us with her angelic voice; this album will surely be a hit.

Check it out!

Got a Motorola Defy XT from Republic Wireless? (UPDATED)

Recently, I switched to a provider that's actually based in my state capitol; Raleigh, North Carolina. The company is aptly named Republic Wireless and they offer two mega sweet deals.

If you want to pay $199 for the phone and only $19 a month for unlimited everything; then that's the first option to choose (add a line and they will take $50 off your order) and if you are like me and prefer a cheaper phone and don't mind spending just a few more dollars a month for the same great service; they offer the phone at $79 and $29 a month for unlimited everything.

All in all; it's a pretty awesome deal. The phone however is a major bust if you don't tweak it. This is what I'll be covering in this post. A mini guide to get the most out of this phone (since it's currently the only one they offer) and how to get some of the look and feel of the current Android version (4.0.x.x & so on)

You will need two apps mainly: Holo launcher & Holo locker

Both of these a…

Summertime makeup for men

So you want to even out your skin and hide redness but you don't want your friends to know you have any makeup on?

Well, as many makeup artist will tell you... the best makeup to use is Mineral makeups... mostly powders but sometimes a onesie layer of liquid mineral foundation can do the trick in covering blemishes and still letting the guy in you show.

I recommend (for drugstore savvy types) using mineral makeup from the Physicians Formula line. Namely their Super BB powder or their Airbrush mineral powders. They provide excellent full coverage and will last you all day and well into the night. No need to touch up and no oily residue left behind!

If you want to bring life to your eyes; opt for a light layer of yellow toned concealer under the eyes and dab it in; this will give full coverage and conceal that tired eye look; if you still need a boost... add a little bit of clear mascara and then go over 1 time with a sheer finish black mascara; I recommend Covergirl's lashblast…

Maybe, just maybe

Deleting you was a hard thing to do but if you're in my chat list and we don't chat; it's clear you don't deserve a spot on my list.

Over the years, I've been in love with the idea that we could be something again; it might not be what it was but it was worth a memory.

A friendship that could of lasted for a much longer time but sadly it declined over and over again. It just wasn't meant to happen; none of it was and that's something I think we both learned too late.

So as I rid myself of the pain that was; I'm going into this one last time to say that if we ever do share words again; let it be known what we must share but let us not forget the joy and peace that we once brought upon each other.

Friendship is a battle to gain and I feel like I've lost every point and XP that could of ever been obtained. It's been more clear the older I get and the longer we've been departed that I know not to cross any boundaries of hoping to speak again bec…
