Before this goes further let's take another moment to thank the likes of dermaplane, peels and aestheticians. Because like Urologists, if you've got to look at something wrinkly, dry or gnarly all day they deserve the credit.
In no way is this a common theme in my life because give a girl a supply of proactiv and a gallon of water and were square, however as part of the show taking place tonight (pics tomorrow) from hair dye to facial scraping this was the king kong of weeks for certain transformations, and things U would opt out of withou having a winning lottery ticket behind me.
Transformation or improvement, this is still up for debate.
On the way out and waiting for a break to clear in the road a particular song came through that immediately turned me into an American Idol, the next X-Factor.
Music feeds the soul and god only knows where I would be had there not been a Britney song to shake my ass to while getting ready some days, a National song to slink into a chair lost in thoughts or a Joni Mitchell melody to nurse through a breakup or other unnatural catastrophe.
A good song is like a friendly companion. I've known this companionship browsing through record stores, attending endless concerts and hearing the melodic tunes for two plus minutes on the radio.
What is it about the lyrics that reaches us, that finds that place deep within and breaks us loose?
This song can go on repeat one thousand times over and will never get old. It will never leave an ipod playlist for my love burns strong for heartfelt words of what could be and what is left bereft.
And stardust but that's a whole other obsessive crush for another day.
So as I work the few hours this morning and head in to get made over for the finished product, a fashion show fueled by clothes, cars and good friends I'm left with the desire to listen to songs that get me in the mood.
The list is a mile long but will always start with a man of glitter and end with a golden voice and crystalline eyes.
The surface shines, while the inside rots
We raced the sunset and we almost won
We slammed the brakes, but the wheels went on.
