and gone.

the green beer day of st-patrick’s and my birth has come and gone.
the first day of spring has come and gone.
the snow is on it’s way out, into the earth and rivers.
in that time i loved my family, friends and cat Thor.
witnessed the passion of two leaders on the environmental crisis.
as they said….
there is a huge opportunity in this crisis
emergency + opportunity = crisis.
technology + will = solutions
and also said…
we have a moral responsibility
to protect the web of life we are part of.

before that all came and went,
i sat on a mini chair on a large frozen river,
humming a tune.

the stories and sounds are getting LOUDER.
my cut through the red tape is in process.
much, much more to share soon.
for now i send you this cyber post card.

    Happy belated birthday, Melissa! I posted a message in the official forum, but I forgot to write here for the special ocassion. I hope you’ve had a fantastic time with the ones you love.

    My God! Sitting in a frozen lake…
    I can’t even imagine how wonderful it must be. The massive white, the cold air, the power of silence.

    Now that you’ve mentioned your cat, I cant tell you I have two new cats! They are a only a couple of months old, and they were picked up from the street. They are recovering now, because they were in pretty bad shape. One of them woke me up yesterday, as he climbed up my bed.

    I’m going into the studio with my band in a couple of days. We’re recording a 7 track EP. I can’t stop wondering how it’ll sound. I’m looking forward to this experience, because it’s been several years since I last went into the studio. I know I’m gonna “suffer” all the way through the recording process, because I tend to feel the pressure of playing perfect tunes, but still, I know it’ll all be worth it!

    I’m also looking forward to listening to your new sounds. I need them so much, I couldn’t even tell. Anyway, I know patience is a virtue.

    I hope you find your way through the red tape really soon. Don’t give up! (I know you won’t, I’m sure you’re not that kind of person).

    Take care.
    Huge hug! =)

    Hi Melissa
    About music industries (the red tape), they are better to treat you right. Because you are a marvellous artist and if they don’t have enough respect for you, this mean also that they don’t respect all your IMPATIENT FANS…

    I’m maybe a little bit angry but I just can’t wait for your next masterpiece Ms Auf der Maur!

    All right the magic of spring is begining and girls are in bloom!

    And you MELISSA are you like a gorgeous flower, ready for an amazing summer????

    Happy birthday! =] I celebrated by watching the Rocky Horror Picture Show and eating green pancakes with my friend =D

    Muuusic… every time I’m not thinking about the Smashing Pumpkins getting back together, I’m thinking about your new CD. I’m thinking of marching to the record company and selling my soul to one of the employees just for a snippet of a new song of yours XD Perhaps not… but close! I’m waaaaiting, and I’ll wait for ten years if that’s what it takes =D

    Love your music!

  11. Galaxia says:

    I have a band…do you wanna play with us?

  12. Yvon says:

    I will like to come but there or you sat and a little dangerous… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Another Pisces is here to wish you a happy–if belated– birth day, Melissa. We are being as patient as we can in waiting for new MadM music– I think we feel your fire, too. Must be the season for the studio– my band has just finished recording a new album, we are just starting the mix phase and I am relieved to be done with brilliant but agonizing process of creating the recordings! SO, ‘mdmb,’ I wish you the best on your EP!

    Melissa– I wish you the best on the red tape… I often think it would be sweet to have the word ‘Capitol’ or ‘Island’ on our record– but second thoughts relieve me of that weird impulse! I’m eagerly awaiting your next work, with or without a big bad label logo.

  14. emma says:

    Thank you for your inspirational photography. Below are links to photos of my beautiful cat and the bay area I live near. Also below is a video clip of Jesse Hughes talking about a viking who became his friend and saviour.
