Last night I was creating with one of my girlfriends. We made these.... :) 





<><><>

While working on our little project, we somehow got to talking about the band James! We were both shocked that we both new about James! Most of my friends now and when I was 14 [when I started listening to them thanks to my older sister] had never heard of James. For some reason, turning 14 was a big event for me...bigger than turning 16 because I was now old enough to go to church dances back in Washington state where I grew up - they were HUGE and so much better than our high school dances! That was such an epic year for me in music as well. I had just gotten a 7 disc cd player for Christmas and was now buying cd's.  James, Cocteau Twins, The Cranberries, The Beetles,  The Cure, & The Pixies is what I listened to over and over again. :::::: One of the songs I was singing for my friend last night was "Say Something" [music video below] she had never heard that one OR any of their other songs from my favorite album of James: Laid from 1993.   Aside from Say Something being a favorite their album title song "Laid" was actually my number 1 favorite. Even though at 14 I new the song was about sex....somehow it didn't really phase me as it does today - plus at 14...come on, I thought I was SOOOO mature! hahaha lol... honestly, it was the beat though that made me so happy inside. "Skindiving" is my third favorite on that album. :)

Love that craft idea!! I will need to try it. Also, I've heard that Laid song, but I've never listened to their other stuff. I will have to go out and buy a CD now. I really liked that song "Say Something"! That has me sold right there that I will like them.
