Who'll be me?

I am so excited! Yesterday I found myself! No, wait, it’s not a cult thing. Do you know what my wildest dream is? Okay, other than my band Manifest selling millions of records and we go on a world tour? It’s seeing Children of the Lost Moon on the big screen.

Did you ever wonder if they made a movie of your life, who would play you? I do. I could never find anybody who seemed just right, not until yesterday. I followed a link someone sent me to a music video by Boyce Avenue and omigod, there she was, Savannah Outen. What a voice she has, and she’s gorgeous! I could totally see her playing me. Oops, I guess that makes me sound a little vain. I’m not really. Alright, I am. Just a little anyway.

Watch the video below (you're gonna love the music) and let me know what you think. You think Savannah Outen could play me in the movie? Who do you think should play Luke and Savannah? Please leave me a comment. I’m dying to know!

Steampunk and Fencing

Steampunk and fencing. Didn’t think they went together did you? Neither did I. But someone told me a new version of The Three Musketeers movie was coming out, a steampunk version! She said if it didn’t make you want to take up fencing, nothing would. Since my bff is a world class fencer, I decided to check it out and watch the movie trailer.

OMG! It looks ah-mazing! I can’t wait until the movie is released. And she was right. It does make you want to take up fencing. In fact, I went to Savannah’s coach (Coach Turner, the one for beginners, not Coach Sloan) and signed up for fencing lessons that same day.

I made a big mistake – big – huge. I should never have told Savannah about it cause guess who showed up to watch. Oh yeah, not only Savannah, but Luke, AND Warren, AND Emma (and no, I still don’t like her).

After about 10 minutes, I could barely hold on to my sword. I think they called it a saber, or was it an epee? I can’t tell one from the other. I tried to hold it with two hands, but Coach wouldn’t let me. Seriously, what’s the big deal? If you’re going to slice someone’s head off or stab 'em to death, who cares if you use one hand or two? Either way it gets the job done. Right? Well that set all of them into a fit of laughter. They were laughing so loud I couldn’t hear what Coach was saying. I turned around to flip them off and my fencing partner stabbed me, which of course, set them off all over again.

That was the beginning of my fencing career. It was also the END of my fencing career. I’m going to stick to singing and songwriting before I hurt myself. I’m still all for seeing the movie though. Click on the movie poster image and see what you think. Hey, maybe we could all see it together! Yeah, All for One and One for All!

You can't take Warren to the Zoo

Savannah and I went to the zoo this weekend to take pictures for our photography class. I don't know why I let her talk me into taking the class, I don't know an F stop from a doorstop. Anyway, Warren and Emma had to tag along. Why you ask?

Remember when I was doing my great singing debut with the new band at the county fair? Lots of people were enjoying listening to my song, including Luke and Savannah. All of a sudden these wolf like creatures started tearing up the place, biting, scratching, and chasing off my audience. A couple of them started stalking me! Savannah grabbed her sword and went all ninja on their ass and chopped one's head clean off. I don't know where they came from, but there were wolves, panthers, bears and all kinds of creatures everywhere (yeah, yeah, I know, lions and tigers and bears, oh my). I guess you had to be there.

Well, ever since then, Luke won't let Savannah go anywhere without an escort. And of course, I don't count. It was okay with me Warren was there. He IS one hawt dood, but I just don't like Emma. I don't trust her. I think she's after Luke.

We took tons of pictures, especially of the gorillas. I noticed one of the apes had blue eyes. He also had a really stupid grin on his face. I looked around for Warren to show him, but he had disappeared. Savannah stared at the ape for a few minutes and said, "Warren, is that you?" The silly ape stopped grinning and  actually laughed at us!

Now the joke's on him. Here's his zoo picture. Scroll down and click on the picture and see what song I dedicated to him. Hope it makes him go ape - LOL!

Biker Babe

A few weeks ago I made a huge discovery about myself. I'm a biker babe. Shocked? So was I. I've become a Sons of Anarchy junkie. I don't like very many TV shows. After a few episodes, most of them turn into night time soaps, but Sons of Anarchy had me hooked from episode one and hasn't turned me loose yet. I haven't figured out why exactly. Yes, the writing is good, the characters well developed, and the acting is great. I love everyone of the characters, especially Jax, Clay, and Gemma. But it's more than that. I feel like all of them, including Juice, Opie, Chips, Bobby, and the rest, are my family. Maybe I'm addicted because I've always wanted a family that would love me and protect me no matter how badly I screwed up!

There's a lot of great music in the show as well. I've picked out three of my favorites. I tried to pick just one song, but it was impossible. So, all you other biker babes and Sons of Anarchy fans out there, scroll down, watch the videos, and listen to some really great songs. Let me know which one is your favorite (if you can). I'm on my way to get a tattoo. Do you think Savannah would mind if I ask Luke to give me a ride on his bike?

Jar of Hearts

Well things have been going better than I ever expected. The gig at the mall was awesome! Everybody seemed to really love our music. Lots of people even asked me for my autograph. Can you believe it? But the best news ever, (get ready to jump up and down, scream and yell) we got another gig at the county fair!!!!!! Woot, woot, woot! I'm so excited I'm about to explode. Wonder how I'd be if we ever got famous! What songs do you think we should do? Do you have a favorite?

Just one small snag in all this happiness and excitement. I broke up with my old drummer boyfriend. I found out he had more girlfriends than I have colored eye contacts, and trust me, I have every color you can imagine. Savannah just doesn't know how lucky she is. Luke is not only hot (what an understatement) he is so sweet and so totally into Savannah, he doesn't even notice anybody else.Well drummer boy is history but I have this song stuck in my head now. I'll share it with you, along with my huge box of tissues. Come on, click on the image below and sing it with me and Christina Perri, as loud as you can!

Welcome to Taylor's World

Hi and welcome to my world. I am a singer/songwriter and I am Savannah's BFF in Children of the Lost Moon. I am so excited! I auditioned for a new indie group called Manifest. You are not going to believe this. I made it! They called me and told me I was their new female lead singer and rehearsals start tomorrow. Woot!!! Our first gig is in a couple of weeks at the mall. It's for some kind of pet thing. I'll give you all the details later.

I love indie groups! Right now I'm really liking Youth Lagoon. I love that song "July." Trevor Powers is definitely a one man show! How about you? What indie artists/groups do you like? Let me know!

BTW, if you want to watch the book trailer for Children of the Lost Moon, just click on the picture of the wolf. I'm in it! See ya there!
