Haha! Look at that awesome picture chosen for my video thumbnail...yikes!
Don't worry, there's no need to call an exorcist. I just have a gift for pulling off such facial expressions.
Anyways, this week I've chosen, Somebody That I Used to Know by Gotye ft. Kimbra. This is another one of those fun and catchy songs. I'm sure anyone can join me in appreciating Gotye's voice, which, in my humble opinion, is very reminiscent of Stings voice. Love it. I'm not %100 sure if this is valid, but I heard Gotye wrote and produced this song in his parents barn. How amazing is that?
So many of us think you need all this money to make it in the world, when in fact, so many stars today have very humble beginnings. A part of me wants to wave a flag in the air saying, "Hey! I'm poor as Hell, how about giving me a record deal or putting me in a movie, and I'll be some great success story for ya!". The unfortunate reality is that I feel so invisible to the rest of the world. No matter how loud I scream, no one looks over to see what all the fuss is about. It kind of makes me feel like that town loony who walks around talking to herself, and people just whisper behind her back, but make no connection that that is an actual person.
I remember being a young girl, and having family lunches every single Sunday. I hated those. Now as an adult, I miss them, but at that age, I tried so hard to talk. Tried so hard to make myself heard, and NO ONE knew I was even trying to speak! So when you spend your life being invisible you really start to wonder....Will anyone ever "see" me?!?!
Invisible or not, this voice in my head just tells me to, "Keep going. Don't stop. Never stop.". I kid you not, it feels like a strong force inside myself, that leaves me with no choice to do otherwise, or I'll end up feeling incredibly guilty. A definite obligation.
Do you think I like performing for a wall? I mean, don't get me wrong....I sing to myself, act to myself, and yes, I even talk to myself on a daily basis, but that's something different entirely. Putting up a video, sending it into the "Internet", just seems strange. It's like it's all floating out there, and I have no control over it. At least within' my own four walls, I still feel safe.
Well anyways, enough of that, I'm off for the night.
