Road to Writing
When I first started, I thought all you had to do is write a book. Can you say *naive*, boys and girls? Join me on my journey as a pre- published writer looking to see my name on the cover of a book. I'll talk about all the bumps, bruises, joys and frustrations I encounter along the way.

Having A Female Moment . . .

Not that kind of female moment! Sheesh! This will be a music/video related post. Yup. I'm referring to a drooly, omg-I'm-dying-here female moment.

Popped over to one of my favorite melodic rock websites yesterday, MelodicRock.com, to find out the latest news on some of my favorite bands. Big, big melodic rock fan here. When I saw a news bit about Final Frontier finally updating their website, I immediately slid on over to see what was going on. New album in 2005! WOO HOO! Being a big fan of their second album, "The Second Wave" (I do like their first -- "The First Wave" -- too, but not as much), I'm really looking forward to the new release.

But the thing that got me all drooly (is that even a word? Guess it is now!) was the video they'd put up on the site for "Lydia", from "The Second Wave". I've seen pictures of Rob Moratti, I've listened to him sing over and over, but I'd never seen him move. Wow. Still having that female moment.

If you've been following my blog, you also know that lately I've been obsessed with the voice of Danny Vaughn of Vaughn/Tyketto fame. (Matter of fact, he's helped me immensely with writing the love scenes in my current story. He doesn't know it, though. *wink*) Not wanting him to feel left out (*snort*), I pulled out and watched his video for "Nothing At All". Both the song and video are included on his most recent project, From the Inside/From the Inside.

Hence, my total female moment.

Yes, I'm too old to be drooling over rock stars. So, to borrow from "Almost Famous," it's the music. It's all about the music. And the voices. Definitely the voices.

*sigh*

(In case you're curious, all the albums I mentioned in this entry are available at great prices from NEH Records. I've spent a fortune on CDs with these guys, and I highly recommend them. They also have sound clips available for the albums, so you can preview before you buy. And no, I don't work for them. I'm just very very very happy with their service.)

  • Hey Lynn, why do you think you're too old for drooling? I believe drooling is normal until you die. (Or something inside you does.) I still can't stop the heavy breathing and high heart rate stuff when I see someone irresistable. My personal short list includes #1 Sandra Bullock, Sheryl Crow (with her it's the music and the eyes), and Alyson Hannigan.

    Enjoy your drool moments. They're fun!

  • Oh, I don't feel like I'm too old for drooling. When I'm too old to drool, I'll be dead. But the rock star drooling feels very . . . teenager to me.

    Doesn't mean I don't still do it. I just don't usually advertise it.

    I thought my husband was going to freak over the puddle at my feet when we had 4th row tickets for Styx this past summer. Lots of drool that night. Lucky for me, he's good natured and thinks I'm a bona fide nutcase.

  • Lynn, you beat me to it. I was going to post my own drooling post tonight. Oh well, still think I'll post my drool fest.

    And yes, I know I'm suppose to be working, but I'm having a rebellious moment. Of course that just means my work is piling up.

  • 4th row tickets for Styx! How sweet! They were my favorite for years. I've never seen them live, though. Now one of the Panozzo brothers is gone. (sigh)
