Traces of Scarlet

Inspiration hit while folding laundry of all things and the muse told me to get to the piano quick, write and then upload on Soundcloud instead of messing about on the computer for hours and hours. Start to finish scratch track in less than an hour.

So, an idea for a song came to me while I was folding laundry of all things, and the muse told me to get my butt to the piano quick and record it, and instead of fussing about on the computer just throw it up on Soundcloud. Scratch recording after one hour.

i dont want my words to be taken out of context

i dont want to be infantilized because i refuse to be sexualized

i dont want to be molested at shows or on the street by people who perceive me as an object that exists for their personal satisfaction

i dont want to live in a world where…

Soaking up Songkran.  #chiangmai #happynewyear!

Soaking up Songkran. #chiangmai #happynewyear!

This frenetic, cracked out zebra was what I really wanted for Valentine’s Day, but my Valentine had to go all romantic and send me roses.  Silly!  I kid, the roses are spectacular.  But this zebra’s pure absurdity makes me laugh.

I felt compelled to record a song for my niece and nephews to enjoy at Christmas. May all the misfit toys find homes!

CELEBRATING 6 MILLION COLORS
After a year of in-depth research, design and engineering, we introduced our latest tool, Color Mixer, in late October. We knew it would be a powerful tool for expression, enabling creators to play with color in a new and natural way that, up until then, had only been available in the analog world.
Drawing inspiration from the familiar, tangible experience of mixing paint, we made something we were truly excited about and one we couldn’t wait to share.
Since the launch of Color Mixer six weeks ago, six million colors have been created in Paper. Magazine editors have used it to make playful sketches of fashion icons; math teachers have used Color Mixer to highlight equations; makers all over, from first-timers to professionals, have unzipped a world of color.
Fast Company examined the science behind Color Mixer and Co.Design explored the thought process which led us to believe (or rather, remember) that it’s simply more fun, more intuitive to create colors instead of ‘picking’ them.
 Paper is alive with color because of creators like you. Thank you.
