    Hi, Mel.
    I’m a dreamer. I would really like to join this place.
    it looks very warm and familiar.
    I wish you the best Mel.
    I love your music. J’adore.
    Would be really cool if you could check out my blog.

    Well, I’m a bit like a pretender as in the classic television series The Pretender. I don’t know who I am, I can sort of work things out and do them, I even bought some Pez the other day at the supermarket (It’s very good). I liked The Pretender, I’d be more of a pretender who got stoned one day and wandered away from The Centre and they could never justify the budget to send a sweeper team out to bring me back. Is that the kind of pretender you’d like? I’d certainly like to join you there.

    Actually if you want the full on The Pretender tv series doseage you must watch the pilot episode, then the last 2 episodes in each season that’d be Dragon House, Blood Lines, Donnoterase and Inner Sense I think off hand. They realy intensly sum up the entire series because they were written by the creator/producers. I’ve always wanted to try that.

  3. Doctor Rock says:

    And I can see your reflection in the front door of the shop there too, just likeThe Pretender would discover the existence of some new character from his past in the plot.

    What’s this place?
    I am a dreamer but i always keep my feet on the ground..
    I’ve been thinking a lot about you and Steve lately…
    I feel like I’m sure that this year is going to rock, in every sense!
    Can’t wait for you to come back

    Woo…that’s some weird place! Yet, it seems too artificial.
    I think I might be too rational, but then again, I’m always daydreaming.
    Our life would be too boring if we didn’t have the chance to dream. You must be the one to know! I mean, you wrote I need, I want, I will, right? 😉
    Take care & be happy!
    Huge hug.

  6. Dave says:

    I’m really happy that I have music like yours, from queens of the stone age, tool or a perfect cirle etc. for example.
    Everytime when I close my eyes and listen to this music it’s for me like I would float through the space.
    It’s beautiful.
    I’ve met every of my fav. bands/artists in my dreams.
    That’s the reason I love them, hehe.
    However, I’ve never met you in a dream before. 🙁
    maybe someday in reality… 😉
    wish you the best melissa.
    love you.


  7. DOMINIC Gauthier says:

    I am a believer undercover dreamer.” Science of sleep” I’ve seen yesterday. Yes. The best thing is just believe in your dreams and you can make it happen. And they happeninig! They don’t last long but Dalah Lama said : It’s all an illusion . Your mind is making everything. So! Do it right!

  9. enxofre says:

    if you’re no one, so fade away into oblivion.

  10. DOMINIC Gauthier says:

    Can you explain more, Dorota, about: They don’t last long…

    Thank you in advance Dorota!

    Are those chairs? I can’t tell…

  13. Rikard Lang says:

    Sweet pictures I must say, I liked the Valentines greetings, it reminds me about warmth inside and the cold harsh snow outside here in Sweden.

    I also noticed you linked to a site about LOMO – my girlfriend recently started experimenting with a filter in Photoshop which produces photos resembling those of the LOMO-camera.


  14. Tempest says:

    I see your reflection in the pics. Those are mesmerizing photos.

  15. DOMINIC Gauthier says:

    Is it a flat or a little personnal museum to trap beautiful girls like you GORGEOUS MELISSA?!?

    I wish I could be more of a dreamer. Just moved to London and the coldness and magic here made me remember you. I cheated girl, and forgot how much I adored your work, but I’m back on my admiration. Hope you are having a good time and rocking somewhere out there

    I’m dreaming in Oz we vote away an 11 year old Conservative Govt nightmare later this year.

    Last night on The West Wing (we are only seeing series seven now) they had the Santos v Vinick debate. There was a memorable moment when Vinick attacked Santos over being a liberal. Santos gave the following rebuff – loved it.

    Sawyer asks them about creating jobs and Vinick says he would get out of the way so the private sector can create jobs.
    “Entrepreneurs create jobs. Business creates jobs. The President’s job is to get out of the way.”
    “Do you want a President who will get out of their way when corrupt executives are plundering a company like Enron?”
    “Hey, I’ll go after corporate crime. My running mate, Ray Sullivan, was very tough on white-collar crime when he was a prosecutor and my Attorney General will be just as tough.”
    “Do you want a President to get out of the way when airline executives are putting their companies into bankruptcy so that they can avoid the pension responsibilities to the workers that have dedicated their lives to those companies?”
    “Some of our older airlines are having trouble meeting their huge pension obligations at the very same time when they’re facing intense competition from low-cost airlines that are so new they don’t yet have pensions to pay. Now, an unthinking liberal will describe the airline bankruptcies as the evil capitalists screwing the workers.”
    “I didn’t say that Senator and I don’t think you should put words in my mouth.”
    “No. Of course you didn’t say it. You’re not an unthinking liberal. Are you?”
    “I know you like to use that word ‘liberal’ as if it were a crime.”
    “No. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have used that word. I know Democrats think liberal is a bad word. So bad you had to change it. What do you call yourselves now, progressives? Is that it?”
    “It’s true. Republicans have tried to turn liberal into a bad word. Well, liberals ended slavery in this country.”
    “A Republican President ended slavery.”
    “Yes, a liberal Republican, Senator. What happened to them? They got run out of your party. What did liberals do that was so offensive to the liberal party? I’ll tell you what they did. Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created Social Security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act. Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act. What did conservatives do? They opposed them on every one of those things ­ every one. So when you try to hurl that label at my feet, ‘Liberal,’ as if it were something to be ashamed of, something dirty, something to run away from, it won’t work, Senator. Because I will pick up that label and I will wear it as a badge of honor.”

    My dad loves this song about a dreamer. The lyrics are ageless. You may say that I’m a dreamer
    I like Mr E’s dreams song on Letterman (he stole the pj fashion statement from me:) trouble with dreams

  29. KevinHogg says:

    Happy Birthday Melissa.
    I was reading the Toronto Sun this morning and they had a picture of you there in the section celebrating birthdays. Happy St.Patricks Day as well. Perhaps it is also a day where the world could celebrate the colour green. That colour has not been celebrated enough. `Green’ should be on the minds of every single person on our planet these days. I am looking very much forward to hearing your new CD.

    You photography is very very interesting. A photo-album (either electronic),in a gallery or as a book documenting the creation, people and processes of making your new music would be very insightful artistically and inspiring for your music fans.

  30. Ghost of DOMINIC says:

    Joyeux anniversaire Ms Auf der Maur!

    Happy Birthday très chère Melissa!

    I love green eyes & The St-Patrick’s day because of YOU MELISSA…

    God Bless you Auf der Maur!!!!


  31. Mark says:

    Happy Birthday Beautiful!!! You are one of the most creative and magickal women ever to grace this planet. I wish I could tell you this in person. I know this sounds like a stalker talking but I would love to meet you. Anyway, Happy Birthday!!! Love,

    the fire looks warm and comforting…..

  39. Garlands says:

    Hi Melissa
    I’m about to turn, ahem, 40, yes yes, shit happens. I thought I’d heard it all and was getting desperate for something to kick my butt when a good friend made me listen to your CD. Keep it up, gal, and do release your next before November so I can get into the next decade without feeling too much like an old fart 😉

  40. Hi there I have been looking for content like this for a research project I am working. Greetings fr0m Kentucky
