Matt Hires :: Lex Land

Last night I had the opportunity to attend a show at the wonderful Hotel Cafe off of Caheunga and between Selma and Hollywood blvd. It was a galant evening as I waited in traffic on Sunset on my way to the Cafe. My friend Eric has been traveling with Matt Hires as his manager and I've been very excited to see him perform again and this time with a a bassist and drummer. Chatting with friends who I knew would be there, made the evening that much more special and Matt up on the stage singing, whistlin and jammin away. It was wonderful too this time because I have his album and I knew all the songs. It felt good to see him up there, makes me want to really try to do the same thing. It is what I have always wanted to do. Now on itunes, check him out. You may have heard his songs on Grey's Anatomy or Private Practice and he is actively on tour.

When I least expected it I was taken aback by the next artist, Lex Land. I did not know what to expect but when she started singing, I fell in love. With an old school sound and some creative keyboarding and beats, this lvoely songstress, crooned until she could no longer. I could not believe her vocal control. She was Regina-esque but with her own flavor and soft and mellow kept me calm and anxious for more. Very emotional, soulful and fun to watch, lex's bubbly personality shined through her performance. Her cute style encourages me to find my unique personality and show it through my own tunes. Not only is she great but she belted out in confident and soft tunes a lovely French piece. Check her out, buy her music, watch her shows!!

She also has had songs on One Tree Hill, Private Practice and Brothers & Sisters.

To be or not to be...different

Uh oh. Here comes another anecdotal and self-aware journal entry blog post. Yup. You guessed it. So, shall we?

A lot has changed. New year, new President, new ban, new ideas...yet I am still me. New endeavors are in the midst.

I have since decreased most of my medications. And now I'm more me than I have been in 3 years. It's good and bad. I stopped therapy due to not having insurance but plan to go back once I find a new doc on my plan. Starting over....ugh. Not going to be fun.

But here I want to write down my struggle. I struggle to be who I think I need to be and who I am naturally. It's not about being cool or fitting in at this point. I already know I have a lot of "personality." About enough for two or three people. That's either your thing or it's not. Some call it quirky, unique, crazy, lots of different things. I've always had to edit myself in crowds and at work, in school...everywhere. That is why being on the stage was so easy for…

Candwich is back...back again!

The Candwich - Sandwich in a Can
The Candwich - Novelty? Gag Gift? Joke? Lunch? I'd say all of the above. This "sandwich in a can" is definitely silly and weird and I can't tell if it's the best thing in the world or the worst thing in world. Irregardless, I have had the opportunity of working with the Founder, Mark Kirkland, or as some call him the "Earl of Candwich." He is a genuine person and truly wants to give back and help "can" hunger. Mark is no stranger to controversy and has had his fair share of hiccups along the way in building his Candwich-opoly.

A Viral Sensation
Candwich went viral in 2010 when the New York Times broke the story about a rogue investor who ran a Ponzi Scheme and stole upwards of $145 million from creditors who wanted to invest in Mark One Foods Corp, Candwich's parent company. It took a long time to settle with creditors but Mark has successfully regained control of Candwich and wants to bring his sandwich in …

So this is thirty...

So this is thirty. I haven't been writing much because what you probably don't know is that my new job is to write. It's silly and something I fell into and I'd like for this blog and my many, many years of needing to express myself and tell stories to go into me finding this path. Once a storyteller, always a storyteller. I like to believe that this is true. Since I was young, I have had so much to say. More than most can keep up with. With that, I either entertained and wowed you or sent you running for the hills. Either way, I've learned from the cues and have worked to know where I fit in and when not to speak but when to write down. It started with journals, then poems, then songs, then this blog, more songs, and then I stopped. I transitioned from vomiting feelings on the page to thinking more strategically for an audience and thinking about my brand what I wanted to say to people who follow me. I don't know who realllly follows me, but if I w…
