Snowing in Denmark

There was screaming in the apartment tonight.  Dee and I spotted our first snow falling.  It has stopped... but was exciting while it lasted. 

Maybe we will be able to do snow angels soon.

The Music Culture

It's funny how music had a big impact most of my life.  I remember being about 4 or 5 riding in my dad's green charger and listening to Led Zeppelin and Santana...  NEVER realizing how influential these guys were going to be to the music world and to me.  Also, I remember the times riding with my mom and listening to Motown.  To this day, I love listening to Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson and the Commodores. 

Man!  Good times!  Then... OMG... the 80's came. 

Being a teenager and living with my grandparents at that time, who I might add were overly possessive and "OLD FASHIONED"... MTV was out of the question... my only escape was the radio.  Duran Duran, Culture Club, Thompson Twins, Bananarama were my escape.  British wave came to my house and I LOVED IT.  Many nights I dreamt of being married to Roger Taylor, and having Boy George as Maid of Honor was the BOMB.  I thought SHE was beautiful.  Just when I was getting comfortable with New Wave, I was rudely awakened with those rat bastards - Motley Crue, Poison, Cinderella, Ratt.  I hated them!  Their songs were so catchy... so different.  It awakened certain urges.  Very bad urges.  Turned my beautiful dreams of Roger Taylor to dark sweaty dungeons, black vinyl, and the sound of whips in the background.  I had violated my beautiful British drummer with a double ended dildo and Boy George.  Not good!

Yes, music has always influenced my moods. 

So, here I am today.  Sitting in my wonderful apartment in Kalundborg, Denmark, enjoying Kingkeld's company.  (Man... do I adore him.  My blond Viking god.)  So while we are both on our computer's, we are listening and watching Heaven and Hell's new DVD.  Ronnie James Dio.  What can I say?  He's an amazing performer.  How can I have missed him back in the late 70's and 80's?  Where the hell was I?  I can only blame it on Motley Crue and Poison.  Ronnie Dio!  Tenacious D summed it up in their movie The Pick of Destiny.  You are the king!

Here are some photos of a concert we went to back on May 2, 2007.

Morning walk

After coming back from walking Dee to school, I decided to do a little window sight-seeing, and with my handy camera by my side, I took pictures.  I'm very proud of the shots I got, afterwards after having a good cup of coffee, I had a hard time deciding which ones to keep and which ones to delete... since I feel like all my photos are GREAT.  So out of one hundred and eleven pictures, I ended up deleting only three. 

It's was very nice to be out... and because I am very shy in person and language handicapped... I felt comfortable around the few people around me.  I did make a friend in a cat that was following me everywhere.  The Muniz in me wanted to come out and steal it... but I refrained myself.  (Inside joke to those who knew my dad.)  I want to keep our home open for a future chihuahua. 

Anyway, here are several of my favorite photos.  Leave me a comment if you want.

View outside my window

I just love my camera.  It doesn't matter... whenever I walk out the door, I have it glued to my hand.  I've become so addicted to it, that every time I see something, I see it through a camera lens. 

  

    

Fall colors

The pictures below are of photos I took at my mother-in-laws apartment.  It's really beautiful to see the surrounding landscape turning into those fall colors.

Fun Commercials

These were my favorite commercials back in the days.

Okay, this commercial is really catchy and one that I am meowing too.
