Lily Maritoski

Her world was one of devious men, liars and theives, who danced with her on fire escapes, led her through dark allys, and made her breakfast when her head pounded too fiercly to untangle herself from the white sheets.

Her world was one of breathtaking moments, artificial dreams, and orange juice at one in the morning. She didn't think she owned an article of clothing that wasn't ripped, from nails clawing at her back, from falling, from dancing too crazily, from fighting, from loving.

Her world was one of love and hate, of yin and yang, of opposites. She was inspired, one time, after reading about Benjamin Franklin, to analyze her life in the form of the scientific theory. She found that she spent far too more time in the hypothesis state than she did in analysis.

Her world was one of snuggling, of burrying, of digging, of building a home and hiding in it. Of sewing a curtain and standing behind it. She loved to conceal, she loved to pretend, she loved to dress up and run around her street because of the thrill she got when her neighbors inquired if she had known that maniac who had been out there. The satisfaction when she answered, "No, I have no idea who that freak was" was far greater than anything else she'd ever known.

Her world was one of radical parties, of late nights spent in a hazy fog of uncertainty, of early mornings spent walking against the brisk wind to get home. She laughed too loud and cried too often, she whispered annoying quotes in strangers ears, she took great pride in her ability to sing irish folk.

Yes Yes Yes

I want to live more. I crave a world that is spinning faster, that gives me more to be a part of. I want to be a part of an artistic community, to feel like I am living a revolution. 1830s french bohemia, the lost generation, the beats of the 50s, the factory scene and protests of the 60s...I want to live wildly and madly and loudly. I feel like I have to create that world I want to live in, create that place of art and madness and beauty and pain and laughter and dreamers. So I guess I will. Because that's how it all has to begin, isn't it? With a feeling, a hope, a dream.

Asymetric Awesome Amazing

Steffi D as Ilse in the musical Spring Awakening

isn't her hair cut the cutest?

Live it, Be it

I've been thinking a lot about this and such lately. I have so many vivid, crazy, imaginative dreams of the person I will become, and I worry sometimes I don't focus on who I am right now. I'm scared to try new things sometimes, I'm scared to be judged. But the person I want to be is none of that. So I'm going to be really cliche here and say that I'm going to try and actually do like that picture, and live the person I want to be. I'll keep you updated on how that goes (:

How about you my loves? Who do you want to be?

i love lady gagaaa

and this video is why.

I love how she doesn't just try to make music, but tries to make art. her intention and her thought proccess is really incredible. I always love to read interviews with her because she really has so much to say about what she does. (I thought the interview piece below was perfect for this video too!)


RS: I heard you say this quote I loved, and I'd love for you to explain it – you 'make music for the dress.'

Lady Gaga: Yes, absolutely. I mean I don't write records and then decide what the video will look like. I instantaneously write things at the same time so it's a complete vision, the song and the visual, the way that I would perform it on the stage. It's something that all comes to me at once. So when I say I make the music for the dress, the dress is a bit of a metaphor for 'I make the music for everything,' for the entire performance vision.


(To read more of the interview, click here...)

PS In the video, at around 3:27, did those shoes look familiar? McQueen anybody? ;)

She decided to run without looking back

It's interesting, she thought, how breathing teaches us that loss is a relief

something neccessary before you start the process over.

Disco Queen, Beauty Scene

when she woke up, she always tried to smile before anything else.

before she even opened her eyes,
or took a conscious inhalation,

she let herself be filled with happiness

so she could dance/fall/crash through her day like a shooting star

full of light and magic.
