Why Did The Romance Have To End?

I think My Chemical Romance has been one of the greatest bands of our time and will continue to be so. Their raw energy and angst has fueled every teenage dream that I’ve had and spurred me on to try harder to be better, faster, stronger and more emotional about things that really matter. They…

I Live in Paradise City

For my 50th post on MHB, I’d like to discuss something really personal and close to my heart. I think there are some moments in life that truly define you as a person. Whether it’s winning an award for a fantastic accomplishment or having a baby or receiving your first paycheck, they all mark points…

Only Love

I love those songs that make life seem suddenly calmer and slower paced, songs that just chase away your fears and pain, if only for 4 minutes. These kind of songs really make me feel clear-headed and calm and give me a fresh perspective on the things going on around me. Sometimes I just feel…

Lana Del ‘Replay’

So it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything and I apologize because these past few weeks I’ve been travelling, and let me tell you guys, the best thing about Europe is the street musicians. In most towns and cities I have visited in Europe in my life, there is always a place designated for…

The ‘Wow’ Factor

Linkin Park is one of the most iconic bands in the world today. The sheer integrity and tremendous power in their lyrics and performances are what makes them a success among the masses. Combine lyrics that have been written to save the world with Chester Bennington’s impressive vocals and you have yourself a Grammy winning…

What Makes You Wanna Die?

So I’ll admit it. I’ve actually been seeing pictures of Taylor Momsen all over the internet before I even guessed she was a musician. [I’m not a follower of Gossip Girl.  At all.] Incredibly gorgeous, long-legged and blonde, she came across as more of a goth model of sorts and it wasn’t until I saw…

It’s Been A While, Hasn’t It?

Hey everyone… As you can tell by the date on my last post as compared to this one, I was away for a LONG time. The truth is there is no excuse. I was on vacation and feeling just as lazy as Bruno Mars laying on his bed. I can assure you that I will…

Girls Run The World

Women are the strongest pillars of anybody’s life. When I look at all the women in my life, my heart swells with pride, because I know how wonderful each and every one of them are. My mother, my aunts, my grandmothers [all three], my teachers, my girlfriends… They all give me courage, strength, encouragement and…

It’s Good to Revisit Sometimes :)

There comes a time [several times] in one’s life where they wish they could go back to one particular moment where they were so happy and so content, everything seemed right in the world. Whether it’s a device for a quick escape from pain in the present or just a jaunt down memory lane, people…

On Being in Love With my iTunes Library…

I guess the only formidable part of me is my iTunes library. Its the only thing you have to fear about me, really. The days where I download music I go into a trance somewhat similar to psychics when possessed by certain spirits or ghouls. I go on a rampage, downloading up to ten-fifteen songs a day, listening to them all…
