If you have watched the Game of Thrones season 6 finale, were you blown away emotionally?
What amazing storytelling and suspense and emotion and love and hate and…forgiveness.
One of the things about this episode that grabbed me so fiercely was Light of the Seven. So different from the usual score, and so perfect that it was as crucial as the wildfire. Fire! Like literally.
If anyone doubts the power of music to tell a story, just don’t.
As one fan put it: “you know epic shit is going to happen when the episode starts with this music“

My parents use to play this when we were little kids. I couldn’t know what it meant but I would belt it out in my living room concerts (my Dad would sub for Barry’s part, hilarious).
But now that I do, this stays fire. Because really, until this popped up the other day I didn’t know how to put this to words.
Because yea, make it a crime to be left out in the cold. Or pretend to care when they don’t. It’s bullshit really. Makes me feel like this, when I really wanna feel like this , but its all good. I’ll just work with this, cuz at least I know I care. I was devotion.
Sneaky l’il iphone, waking things up that I work hard to shut down. Random, but this song stops me in my tracks because sometimes I feel like Lucy Witmore….Not that I’m the biggest expert on grunge ska..but that moment in 50 First Dates, when no matter how ditsy Lucy seemed or how hard her situation could be, Henry
still loved her. And then set their world on fire. Anyway back to reality♥CC
Hard at work today and taking my
smoke music break. My “Iconic” playlist is on and I hereby give thanks for the audios & visuals.
Lenny Kravitz 5 for “I Belong to You”
Flashdance for Irene Cara & the inspiration behind my 50 deconstructed tees
Christion..Ghetto Hymns for all the “Full of Smoke” hustlas
Tamia for the hologram of CC on the beach at sunset
No Doubt..for that night, freshman year in college, when “Don’t Speak” came on and I was an instanttttttt die-hard
Minnie Ripperton for Perfect Angel..cuz she was
today’s vibe ☯
Will somebody wear me to the fair?
Will a lady pin me in her hair?
Will a child find me by a stream?
Kiss my petals and weave me through a dream.
~M. Ripperton, sublime
****UPDATE UPDATE: So Crablings,
A) The RIAA aggressively shut my video down. Oddly, I am both proud and angry. I’m prangry.. Must have done something right!!
B) This bish was pregnant the whole time. I can’t
*** END UPDATE
People always wonder WHAT CC’s obsession is with Ms. Knowles. Lord knows there are millions of us fans/stans.
All I know is I have adored her since day 1, since she was getting booed at her own concerts. Since the DC fiascos. I didn’t know why then, other than I knew what it felt like to be judged harshly.
People say she hogs the spotlight. I wonder just how anyone is able to stop their own shine? As if.
I adore her because she’s happy. Talented. Savvy. Imperfect. Fails as much as she succeeds. Has cellulite. Endured love drama. Family drama. Can’t eat too much. And she channeled that all into millions and fame while staying true to her dreams.
Everyone should own themselves. Period.
Her Roseland concert epitomized all that is loved about her and that was a lifetime collection of 90 minutes for CC. What I did to secure this spot was 150% worth it.

Random CC thoughts tonight:
What: Il Fait Chaud by French artist Passi.
When: The moment in a cafe in Paris…when Carrie realized the only life she could live was an authentic one, this song was playing.

one of CC’s all time favorites..the how and where I first heard this a few years ago was serendipity..always with me. I only recently heard the remix and its 3X dope. Perfect mix of man and woman. And makes me think of only one man.
Oh. Oh. Oh.
Headphones are art…
Crack to CC’s ears….
A good pair makes music so crystal clear you may actually think Fergie is vocally equivalent to Gwen Stefani.
Here is RocNation’s aviator turn on a classic…
“SkullCandy and Roc Nation have formed a coalition and invented the Aviator headphones, designed to “offer the best way for people to experience the soundtrack of their lives”, says Jay-Z”
The style definitely trumps Dre’s .. CC hopes to soon vouch for the sound.
But oh. So pretty.
CC wonders…what happens when you can mix love and work effortlessly?
First, love these 2. I have had this video on repeat for awhile after a friend posted it on FB. Over 5 Million hits in one week ***100 of them probably mine*** featuring a sick imitation of Chris Brown, Busta Rhymes, Nikki M, and Weezy F Baby.
This is something people either love or hate, all or nothing, no in between – although if you hate it, leave this blog now (j.k!!) because Amy totally rips it at 1:15.
But after ODing on the video, CC looked up their story, saw a few interviews and what an inspirational love story.
They studied music at the same prestigious arts school, were classically trained in different skills, did their own thing solo and built separate careers, then joined forces and are now on a quick rise…personally and professionally.
Similar interests, equal values, and attraction…Great recipe for luv, life, and happiness, no?
Enjoy (or else)!
Thank you for stopping by 😊
