JOriginal Muse Box is nothing more than a fuse box to your inner creativity flip-switch. CAUTION: Dangerous Dimples ahead. You may even become ELECTRO-CUTIED by smiles generated from some not-so-static "thunk-of" thoughts. I may share ideas, tips and suggestions that seem to come at me out of nowhere.

Said "I've got two projects pending from this site... other than that, I can't say much for the work flow. I see Kudos, simply as a means of saying, "Hi, you've got an admirer out here." I don't think they're worth much for someone who's actually hunting for a service. When it comes to that, I think their eyes and ears will direct them. Meantime, it's just sort of nice to be among creative folks, be appreciated by peers... and vice versa. PS Have you seen "Inland Empire"? It's one of my favorite David Lynch flicks." to Joanne Dagonese

~ Agreed ~ but no, I haven't seen the movie~ I'm going to have to look that one up... Netflix, maybe...? Thanks ;-)
David Gavin - Over 30 days ago
Yes, you'll find it on Netflix. If you're not real familiar with what David Lynch creates, my guess is that either you'll absolutely love it or you'll think I'm out of my mind :~)
I've always felt that Lynch is one of a few directors whose films make you feel like you're viewing a piece of fine art (that is liquid rather than static static) from one frame to the next.

~ I found it and put it into my que. The description of the plot and theme is right up my alley. Thanks for sharing ;-)

Said "~ The key to happiness is not so much doing what you enjoy, but enjoying what you do ~ Maybe I'm not the first to think or say this, so don't quote me on it ~ I just know it's true ~ Some of my best lyrics & songs have come to me while cleaning toilet bowls ~ Sometimes I feel like a Disney anime cartoon breaking out into song & dance, while I'm in the middle of doing some really nasty chores ~"

Said "~ Being new to this site, I haven't had a chance to explore enough to know if anyone actually gets legitimate work here. Navigating from site to site feels like swimming in an ocean of talent. Kudos are great ~ don't get me wrong... What I want to know is, are we here for the love of our craft(s) or just to build our Kudo Resumes...? ~ Note to self: Rhetorical questions do not require immediate reply ~"

~ This is one of those songs I needed to write for my own therapy. I debated whether or not to include this, because of the the poor quality of the video. It was one of the first videos I posted shortly after joining YouTube. Most of the feedback came from those who know the stories behind the song. They were amused. Tongue-in-cheek, I use sarcasm to "counter-attack" those who've spread rumors over the years ~ based on ignorance, jealousy and/or their own clouded thinking from their "substance abuse."

~ This song actually came to me out of "nowhere" while hiking about a year ago. It was a haunting melody with lyrics that told a story.

And as with your voice, you've learned to use them beautifully! :~)

My daughter Naomi Rose Crespo ~ now Naomi Goodale ~ appeared on a "surreality" show, The Bachelor (Season 13 with single dad Jason Mesnick). Although Naomi made it to the final four and had a hometown date in which Yours Truly also appeared, all's well that ends well... Naomi ended up back with her real true love, David Goodale (Matthew Mcconaughey look-alike). They were married on March 19, 2011. "Naomi Rose" means "Pleasant Giver of Love" ~ very fitting for my fun-loving and an all-around lovingly sweet daughter ~ the middle child of five. Among Naomi's diverse talents are: writing, sketching, acting, modeling, singing and dancing. She spent two weeks as a volunteer in a Cambodian orphanage. There is a picture of her with some of the orphans.

This slow ballad style original "reincarnates" the classic love songs of the Golden Age of radio. With its smooth tempo and steady rhythm, the heartfelt lyrics remind us of the age-old theme of eternal love looking to reunite soul mates, separated from once-upon-a-time. Digital keyboard accompaniment. All rights reserved.
