80s music and retro shoes

I'm hooked baby... hooked on the year 1983 and locked to my lucky suede and leather... give me more <3

Oh, and I want these shoes in every color and design they offer:

This brand is by far the best out there. I think I found my maker in shoes. Finally; true retro style kicks!

Oh and I think I'll be buying these soon to go with my new red and purple skinny jeans I bought a couple weekends ago; leather jackets now... ah... this will go on forever... :)

Creepy stalker guy

So as I'm on my way out of the gas station, this really creepy Mexican guy kept opening the door for me and winking at me.

We were stocking up on fountain drinks because the gas station sells them for only 50 cents and well being the family of bargains; we can't pass it up.

Anyway, this guy was smoking his cigarette and as I came outside, he winked at me again and said "I like dick, do you?"...I didn't respond as I stepped into the car and pulled away.

Look, creepers are not cute. I'm scarred now knowing that gas stations can not be trusted.

There are some weird and crazy people hanging around there. Can I get a rain check please?!?! Yuck!

So you had a bad day...

It annoys me when I'm misinformed about something. You make the mistake and then boom; they tell you the truth and you're left in wonder as to why you didn't know something sooner.

On the upside; I was reminded of my former half a bit today when I saw a well dressed guy who resembled a lot like a dutch guy who is with another dutch guy that I know. Blonde hair and all. It was strange because I never thought I could see someone in my area that had the 'dutch' glam. I admit though; I was embarrassed later when he approached me about light bulbs because I think he overheard my conversation with Stephanie.

Me and Stephanie are both Leo's and it works well between us because we really get along. She's the introvert one and I'm the bubblicious extrovert one of the pair. I said out loud to her "that guy looks like my ex's boyfriend" and I believe he heard me later because he scurried through to ask me where the light bulbs were. I know; I'm blowing smoke out my ass over a simple moment but it made my evening that there was something beautiful out there that reminded me of a person I really respect a lot.

Just don't tell them that; I gotta keep some mystery, okay? ;)

The highlight of my evening is that I now have a ugly scratch on my head from scraping against a peg at work while I was putting up merchandise and cleaning shelving. I hate when that happens. I end up looking worse than I already do; all tired and strung out from the busy long hours I work sometimes. It's apparent though that vitamins are vital to my anemic eyes. Iron really helps a lot too.

Well, I work another evening shift tomorrow; so time to enjoy a little bit of Buffy time and get my ass to bed. If only I had a guy I could vent to and cuddle up with for the evening; someone to be there for the night so I could relax a bit before I work 4 days straight. Ah, mystical mystery boy...come sleep by my side tonight okay?

Goede nacht mooie jongens.

Codename: Jefferson

I can't shake it; feeling this emotion right now that I've hidden for a long time. The pain is all the same but the love is so much more complex than I imagined.

I told myself going into this that I could never give my heart to anyone else again but I feel like giving it away again. The only problem is I want to give it to someone that I can't have.

I love him. I can't help fight it because I know what we have is just moments and then it's gone but what if that moment could last forever? Would I accept the consequences of my sins in exchange for his love?

I'm 23 years old, I'm still young but my soul feels old. I feel like I'm going to a place where I get what I want for a moment and then it flies away. How long does this last? That emotion that I can't destroy.

I'm in love and no one knows it. I can't have it but I want it so bad it hurts.

My current state says 'find something good to listen to'

So, I've caved into the idea. I'm currently jamming to the likes of artists like 'new order' and a bit of bjork to mash into the army of tunage that I'm linking myself to.

It's been a long time since I sat down; just me, and listened to new music from some of my timeless favorites and reminisced a bit on the grand ol' days they shined as well.

The new album 'Lost Sirens' from new order tends to remind me of a bit of the 90s grunge touch with a hint of soft avant-garde rock synonyms blended into a euphoric youthful rock sound. It's a much matured sound but brings back the billows of the early to late 90s era. It's quite nice. Don't forget; "True Faith" though, it was a hit in it's day. Still has a spark to it. I love a lot of the beats in the older generation 'new order'.

Aside from this new album; I'm observing a classic 90s album; "Post" from bjork. Many know that this was a popular album of hers because of her late single "Army of Me" which landed her a great deal of noticeability when it was released. It's a circa 1995 album with her mount of powerful 90s trance and engraving lyrics that will hide in your mind for days. It's a true art piece.

Well, I must discover more treats and savor old beats. Skies the limit if you let it be; right?

Did I mention; Mazzy Star? If you want to get ultra 90s; you listen to Mazzy Star baby! :)

Chromebook for the world

About a week or so ago, I managed to buy myself something new. I needed a new laptop and well with the assortment of Windows and overpriced Macs; I went with what came naturally... I bought a Samsung Series 3 Chromebook; for only $249.

People misunderstand the concept of what a Chromebook is and how it works. It's not just a web based laptop with a bunch of bookmarks on it. It's a future for enhanced web experiences and true innovation without the need for extra USB drives, Hard drives, or an assortment of disks to save photos and music on.

To the new folks out there, you might ask yourself a lot of the same questions that people ask commonly about Chromebooks... "Is there Offline apps?"... "Can I use Photoshop?"...."Does it run Windows apps?"...

So to help you out, I'll break it down to you a bit...

1. Offline Apps

While in the beginning, Chrome OS didn't offer much of anything offline; this has changed and it's grown into a vast assortment of great applications with a lot of offline features. Google themselves, invested in this as well and now All of your documents can be edited, viewed, and created on a Chromebook without the need for an internet connection. You can even view news articles and edit photos offline.

2. Photoshop

You can't use Photoshop on a Chromebook; but Adobe recently released an online photo app which allows you to upload your photos and edit them in the cloud; It is entitled, Revel. Revel is a great alternative and provides a great editing experience without the worry of bulky software or lack of features.

Check it out here:

While there are a lot of speculations that the photo editing isn't up-to-par on Chromebooks; the best thing to do is to research the Chrome Web Store. The Chrome Web Store has thousands of amazing web applications that can match feature rich apps like Photoshop and do it better.

Be sure to browse through the different categories; Photoshop is mostly not available on Chromebooks because Adobe doesn't support it on Linux-based operating systems. If you really need it that bad; you could always use the built in Chrome Remote app which allows you to remotely connect to your existing PC or Mac.

3. Windows Apps

Windows is an entirely different system than Chrome OS. Chrome OS is based on Linux; or variations of different versions of Linux which mostly used the Linux kernel and some shell overlays with the Chrome browser. Most of the applications on Windows are replaceable through Chrome Web Store. You can find tons of great applications that will do the same and sometimes more on your Chromebook without any hassle of paying licensing fees or trial based programs that annoy you later. Chrome Web Store has some of the best online alternatives to Windows apps out of any other system out there. So switching to a Chromebook; you'll find; is quite easy and a breeze of an experience, once you see how amazing it really is.

'Springbreakers' aka Not Another Shitty Movie

As if the movie title isn't enough to sell you out into the abyss of poor editing, lack of plot, and really dumb characters. This movie reeks of nothingness and promotes violent behavior like it is cool and a good thing.

Long gone are the days that our kids and teens could actually watch a decent movie without being subjected to the plague of shitty dub-step and severely ridiculous acting. Take the 90s for instance; in the 90s there were movies that actually had story lines and plots that were clear and didn't make you yearn to turn the TV off.

So to Hollywood I respond; STOP MAKING CRAP MOVIES AND MUSIC. Haven't the people suffered enough with the economy? It's sad that you repeat the same shitty pop songs on radio like it's 2007 all over again but the fact that none of the songs you choose to play have any rhythm anymore. Like the movies; I'm certain that spending 30+ dollars on this film would be not only disappointing but acridness to your  budget. Why suffer an hour to two hours when you could simply pay 99 cents later to see this junk and not worry about wasting time if you can luster getting past the first few scenes or not.

Oh and party movies SUCK. What's the point of watching some group of people pretend to party if I could easily just go out and do it all by myself? Again, movies that have no meaning, no plot, and nothing to produce in terms of my emotional stance are just a waste of my money and my time. GET IT TOGETHER HOLLYWOOD. GET IT TOGETHER!

Though this is my view... look at the trailer and decide... personally... it's shit if you ask me...

Passport Blues

So I bought a passport when I was 18 through a modeling agency I was working for and it states that it will expire by the time I'm 28. Well, I'm 23 now. Given the economy and my job doesn't compensate enough to constitute such a vivid trip to another place. I'll have gained a passport for nothing. I refuse to buy one after I'm 28 because by then, I'll have no desire to spend $300 or more on one.

Though I digress, this just shows that sometimes you don't need certain forms of I.D. to validate that you can't afford to go out of country. Much less to another state.
