Get The Album (Invincible Summer)

posted in: The Journey, The Music | 0

So… Pre-orders close on the 31st of December. Have you pre-ordered your copy? It comes with a free (limited edition) t-shirt and the price includes shipping. AND you could win a private performance by me and my band (if you’re in South Africa).

invincible pre-order

This past week I was in studio taking care of those things that caused the album delay. It was so lovely to hear all the songs. Sometimes when I create, I forget to step back and actually enjoy what I’ve done. This album has almost been 3 years in the making. We took a lot of breaks in between (mainly because the project is self financed). There were times when I was certain that we would never complete the album.

We spent many late hours in the studio this week. On Thursday I wore my sexy ‘blue’ shoes. They were disrespecting my feet in a major way, by the end of the night. I had been wearing them ALL day. No matter. They are still pretty. I just won’t wear them from 8am to midnight next time.

They are Errol Arendz. Saw them in a magazine and stalked them for 2 months :)

Thank you to all the people who have pre-ordered the album so far. If you haven’t yet…. Watchu waiting for? ;)

Enjoy the holidays and tell someone you love how you feel. I have already. Not with my family this Christmas (because of album stuff). But I am going to Christmas lunch with a close friend and her family. There is love everywhere.

Black Porcelain. Out!

April Book (Dr Seuss)

Continuing with my ‘books I’ve read this year’ posts… I grabbed these from my old blog:

When I told Marcee what my April Book was she laughed. I am not kiddding when I say that ‘Oh, The Places You’ll Go’ is one of my favourite books. I only read it 2 years ago and often revisit it when I am feeling down or need perspective. Once when asked to give a talk to a bunch of really inspirational ‘dance for life’ contestants, I read bits from the book to make a few points. Its fun to quote the ‘great thinkers’ of our time but nobody does it better than Dr Seuss.

But on you will go
though the weather be foul.
On you will go
though your enemies prowl.
On you will go though the Hakken-Kraks howl.
Onward up many
a frightening creek,
though your arms may get sore
and your sneakers may leak.

On and on you will hike.
And I know you’ll hike far
and face up to your problems
whatever they are.

– Dr Seuss (Oh, The Places You’ll Go)

Read this book and thank me later ;)

March Book (Tom Sawyer)

posted in: Book Worm | 0

This year I tried to read at least one book a month. I’m going to be sharing posts (about the books I’ve read) from my previous blog on to here. This is pulled directly from my old spot.

I’m just gonna act like I am not almost 2 months behind with my reading and tell you about the March Book. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer was a lovely read. I often myself laughing out loud or holding my breathe. The book is about the kind of little boy I suspect I might have been… Had a been born male ha ha. I thoroughly enjoyed Tom Sawyers adventures, his infatuation with the new girl (Becky Thatcher) and even his filthy, pipe smoking friend Huck (I am planning to read his book in about 2 months).

The book was written over a hundred years ago, so I found myself often picking up the dictionary or googling things like ‘spunk water’. I was also very surprised at the use of the n-word as well. Besides that, it was a wonderful book. Put it on your list of books to read :)

Delays, Distractions and Tears

posted in: Ramblings, The Music | 0

So… As you may or may not know. Today was supposed to be the last day of pre-orders. But a week or 2 ago, we had a bit of production drama (completely out of my control). We were supposed to go to print tomorrow, but alas.

I cried big hot salty tears and threw a couple of things. I had a tall tantrum! But my sweet Marcee reminded me that I am hurting myself by getting mad at things that I cannot control. Wise. So I sent out emails, texts (allow) & WhatsApp messages to all my pre-order folks telling them about the delay.

Because we are now printing we have decided to extend the pre-order process till the end of this year. I’m mad that I won;t be able to slow dance with a copy of my album as we count down to 2013. I really wanted it to be the first to touch these lips. Bleh!

So, if you haven’t pre-ordered the album. Go ahead and do it!

Could I be one?

I love discovering new words. Perhaps one day when I’m not a broke artists (he he he) I will aspire to be a quaintrelle. According to Wikipedia (allow) Coco Chanel was one such woman.
