An Invitation

an invitation by julienne m. nephithyrion

An Invitation

Every night I hear maudlin music played
from a distance, or maybe two steps back.
Its strings are like a wonderful array
of stars that the skies now lack.
It sings right in front of me, but far away
waiting at the end of a cul-de-sac.
It's you, if not me, 'cause I never was
the very voice I hear of a latent lass.

~ julienne m.

My poem An Invitation was published in 2007 by EditRed in their collection Scream. That time I used a pen name: Hayden C. Clear. Now that I look back, it's a bit corny. =D
The image above is a bad watercolor painting I made yesterday. Edited with GIMP. :)

New Site on Cargo

For a long time, I've been longing to have a site on Cargo. I didn't know you could request for an invite by showing them some of your work until recently. And the admin approved my request!

I've been busy building a portfolio and changing some design elements on the theme I chose. All Cargo templates are great by the way. My site is up, but it's going to be a work in progress. I'll be leaving tumblr because of this. In the meantime, I've changed this blog's look to match (I think) my Cargo site. Hope you all can visit: cargocollective.com/julienne

Rediscovering Arkarna

My brother and I have been having Arkarna on replay the past months. While we were both fans of the 90s hit So little time, we really didn't know any other song from them aside from Life is free. But last year I stumbled on their youtube video for Rehab and haven't looked back since. I really thought they were alternative rock, but I was bombarded with a lot of electronic tracks, which I don't remember liking, but not this one.

This is my favorite track from The Family Album:

sorry this is the only video I could find

Really nice review here: Arkarna - Fresh Meat (1997) Album Review

Once upon a time

This is my newest favorite on TV. I've been following it since November last year and I just love the characters. One of the reasons I think is familiarity. Plus Robert Carlyle (of Trainspotting and The Full Monty) is on it.

Human Nature - People Get Ready

Human Nature: one of the best boybands of the 90s! =)

People get ready
There's a train a-coming
You don't need no baggage
Just a-get on board
All you need is faith
To hear the diesel hummin'
You don't need no ticket no no
Just thank the Lord
People get ready
For the train to Jordan
It's picking up passengers
From coast to coast
Faith is the key
Open the doors and board on
There's room for all
Amongst who love the most

And here they are live:

Have a blessed Sunday!
