Claire Metz Fenner

Out of all the dancers that's danced to this song, I always imagine her performance. She embodies this song so well, and sooo beautifully. I wish I could see more of her performances! I love how she completely memorized those pops. I've listened to this song soo many times, and I still don't have it down.

thoughts... as usual

I find it interesting that--

Well, maybe interesting isn't the word. I suppose its just something I need to say. I think its crazy how I've worked so hard keeping up with my studies in belly dance. And I'm kind of scared to perform through ignorance. I'm so scared I'm going to misrepresent it. I mean so many people have different opinions on what belly dance is...
And you try to keep up with everything but, like I have so much respect for it, I can't dance. Granted I don't have a costume, or made one yet. But even if I did, I still think I would be thinking the same. I dont know if anyone else feels that way or what.

And oh dear, I don't know what I'm saying...

memory lane

Going through all of my old cds shows me that there really was a journey to where i am now. I truly cannot comprehend my existence without photographs, or things of the past.  I remember when showing devotion to band was to spend the little bit of money you had on their cds and concerts.  God, I need to look through all my concert tickets....
man. Its like you know I existed somewhere in time for a while is how it feels.
Its like I did belong somewhere, and felt that I belonged somewhere. That was metal. That's what metal gave me.
God, it was either metal, or dirty south rap. LOL!! That's like all of my cds and mixed cds...
you could tell what kind of child i was in way...
Yes, this is the R&B I had-TLC, Blaque, Aaliyah, Hip Hop Hits, Angie Martinez (lol), ext and then countless metal, Bleeding Through, Kittie, Korn, Deadsy, Opeth, Nevermore, Blind Gardian, Dimmu, Cradle, Slipknot, Black dahlia murder, american head charge, devil driver, localies-less spoken, obscura...ext. Oh man...
I just miss belonging somewhere....

But most of all, I do NOT like dwelling in the past. Which is why I am selling them. It does me nothing to live in the past, and it hinders me from growing.

So at the same time I do not like photographs, or I should say I am very very choosey with the photographs I decide to keep.

Life is about NOW.
And this shows me that I can make history within myself. within my own life. I am writing my life as I speak.

Juvenile - Ha

This is actually lit and photographed really really beautifully. I'm quite shocked. The colors are gorgeous!
The framing is amazing. It's about capturing these moments, as a photographer would. Or at least how I would if I were given a project.  It tells a story. Its actually--wow, I'm so shocked.
Like I always say a beautiful photograph has movement, and these are literally moving photographs.

My favorite moments: 1:07, 2:29 (such a quiet moment caught),
