Billie Holiday “Strange Fruit” And Julia Holter – “World” ***messymandella***

           Have you ever been hypnotized or lifted up to another place or captivated by an original voice? With technology anyone can auto tune a singing voice. You can’t auto-tune talent. Two women with 2 different backgrounds and decades of musical separation, intrigue those that believe a unique voice is not something you can create in a studio. A voice is a gift, or as in this case, a warning to the world of confusion, and the state of the world we live in . You hear  a painful, but hauntingly beautiful  voice, but were you also listening?

                   If you have not had a chance to experience this phenomenal,  these two women will definitely relax and trouble you because of the heart-felt pain, but elaborate similarities of  their voices.




The music of the late Billie Holiday, still transforms historians because of the pain.
The demons that tortured Billie,  in her destructive life also tortured the late Whitney Houston. Yes, life plaques celebrities with beauty and talent even if it is more than  40 years apart.

Artist will usually have one addictive down-fall,  because their talent is too powerful to contain, and even in the case of Whitney, Cissy said her talent scared her.

I also deal with that  the feeling, of wondering ,”Why am I seeing this, How can I create this? Why am I telling these stories?”

       That melancholy  voice transforms the electricity in your  body, and it can’t escape you. You can imagine standing where Billie Holiday stood, when she first saw that body swinging from that tree. It is history, pain and struggle and a gift  that was merely too intense for one person to contain.


       Julia’s  Holters’ voice might be the last sound you hear before you leave this earthly life. It is a heavenly but depressing voice that haunts most. It  is time to listen and judge the similarities in this songs and the beauty of both women, with different backgrounds, decades, and musical training that captivate any audience. Julia will leave her own space in history. 

         We also know some of the best voices of our time, are barely heard and sadly will not reach that well deserved pinnacle of success. Hip Hip would not be anything, without samples, musical exploration and a vast appreciation to open your mind, and step away from the mundane. Create your own sound, and make your name and voice that next generations will appreciate. Billie Holiday died in 1959 and we still appreciate the gift and curse that she left behind.

You know when you hear Julia’s voice, that this will be the last song you will sing,or is it? What happened?

Never  have I heard a voice so transforming, as this Domino Recording Artist.

Is she telling you good-bye, for good?

What is you trying to escape?

Julia Holter appears to be  possessed with the spirits of Billie Holiday and Karen Carpenter

Listen for yourself! 

Meet Domino Recording Artist, Julia Holter!

Long Live Lady Day!

Women In The World, Must Unite To Bring Change! ***messymandella***

Don’t be weak and destroy the future empowerment of our generation

because someone wants you to be…

Speak your damn mind, to heal but end bullying!

Make sure that you rely on yourself, and surround yourself with loving people. Teach our women that character compliments beauty or the lack there of…

You need to make sure you live with a conscious and don’t change your personality depending on who you are around or just for the moment. 

Be You!

Live with a realistic and humanized approach and respect for all people.

Say how you feel but never belittle others to give you a false sense of self. Fight for our rights, not each other. Live in dignity and gain knowledge from women of all generations and ethnicities. 

We can not raise daughters with weak, hateful and shallow personalities. Surround yourself with activists  with enough intelligence to humble foolish conversations. Focus on self empowerment.

You are the gift, find someone who is worthy to  open the present…

 

You are worth every kiss, compliment, and hug.

You deserve the best every day.

Start today with an intellectual conversation with a positive humble being.

Kate Beckinsale: When Over 40 Looks Better Than 20! ***messymandella***

          Women spend thousands of dollars on  cosmetics and skin care lines, with the sole purpose and effort to look more youthful,to hide their age.
We have a billion dollar industry in aging products alone,because being older is deemed less attractive.
When men go through their mid-life crisis, they search for any signs that they are still attractive,and it is a plus if the woman is the closer to the age of the daughter vs. the age of the mother.

        According to the tabloids and infomercials,we must eliminate any signs of skin maturity and nature taking it’s course, right?
No!
Angelina Jolie is breath-taking, the older she gets the increasing of her natural aging process taking place.

       She looks organically elegant,and she still raises her children and lends her time to charity work. Angelina, didn’t get her cheeks higher, duck lips,or an obvious eye lift.
Gabrielle Union is a doll,and we can’t forget Stacey Dash, and they all our over the age of 40 years old. All of these women’s age complimented their beauty.
         We can hide behind our own insecurities if we assume younger is gorgeous, and over 40 years older is just aging well...
Aging and weight are always issues with any women and allurement is always comparative, even before mental strength.
        However, we sometimes get better with time, if we let our natural beauty become enhanced. We don’t need to remodel our faces until we look unrecognizable.

      As a mother and an actress Kate has to compete with models that are 20 years younger, because according to standards we have set as a society, younger is better. If you enter a room with LisaRaye Mccoy Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, or  that age is simply a number. Glamour is more evident when self-confidence is part of the question.

           We must become more at ease and finally accept that women will go through an abundance of plastic surgery to compare with a younger generation. If you put Kate Beckinsale in a room full of women 20 years younger, she will steal the spot light and prove that real women age, like fine wine.

 

George Stinney Executed at 14***messymandella***

George Stinney and Older Brother

This is a senseless death In history that seems to be forgotten. There is no way he could hurt anyone. No one thought he was guilty.

They just didn’t care if he died.

   George Stinney executed in 1944,  South Carolina.

Some people still have never heard his name. Today you will find about his  sensless murder. 

George Stinney  is still the youngest person  executed, in the 20 century.

 George Stinney who was sickly, shy and underweight was accused of murdering two girls.

He “allegedly confessed” that he murdered the girls.

In the movie “Carolina Skeletons” they eluded that it was a law official that may have been the killer.The murder scene is just acting.It’s graphic,but the actor is reenacting the scene of what happened that day he was executed. http://youtu.be/HIC-qBLDWUg

 This little guy would not have the strength to kick a puppy. He would seen playing in the flowers with little girls while singing songs.That means he may have been a little effeminate.

There is no way in hell, George  killed and raped  two girls!

George had no one to speak up for him.

His dad fired from his job, because of the case.

George’s siblings were given only 2 choices.

1.Runaway

2.Lynched

Yes, little innocent children were going to be lynched for their brothers alleged crime.

The South will always have whispers of racism.

I just hope that whoever murdered these 2 little girls, gets justice.

I am sure they are in their afterlife.

However,sadly  so is George Stinney.

George Stinney needs his redemption. Let him have that. He can’t get back his life.
