“The hurricane-force of his writing ability is matched only by the jaw-dropping power of his performance. To witness his stage show is to be broken open utterly. The combination of his accomplished acting background and the sincerity of his words and delivery serves to leave audiences ringing, breathless, and understandably speechless. His live performances being few and far between, David Scott is the best kept secret of California literary scenes.”
Gifted with the eye of a true crafter, he fits words together in ways the ear has never heard, in a simultaneity of wonder and recognition that will leave your heart rioting.
He is an artist, in the truest sense of the word, with a style that transcends trends to reach new ground of startling originality. His work bears the mark of a man who has been to the depths, truly listened and truly seen; a courageous open ear to the world around him, he is defiantly not numb.
Ariella Daly comes from a world a lot like our own. The subtle differences shine out luminously upon listening to Waterkeeper, her velvety debut album. From the very first note, it is a brilliantly woven together cryptography of images. Daly is a masterful conjurer, an accomplished time-traveller, and a storyteller of the old tradition, all rolled into one. She hands us a red thread from her heart and pulls us through a beautifully adorned labyrinth, unsure what kind of a dream it is that we have entered.
Waterkeeper floats upon the clear ringing of Daly’s vocals and the sometimes head-spinning fervor of her piano work. (more…)
TaurusThe day is here for you to fulfill the prophecy, Taurus. You must use all your brain power and your charming sass-mouth to build the world a watermelon piano. I don’t know how, I don’t know why, I just know it is your destiny, and that in days to come, future men wearing silver space suits, with pants that look silly to us, but are actually quite stylish in their time, will sing elaborate songs of your efforts, which will be entirely composed on the instrument of your invention: the watermelon piano.
ScorpioThe fashion world is buzzing today. Can you hear it, my darling Scorpio? It sounds like pasta being murdered with a broad sword by a man wearing the bottom half of a two-person horse costume. The word on the street is that collar bone decorations are majorly IN. If you wanna be ahead of the pack on this one, you better get on it quick. Slather your CBs in yellow paint, whale placenta, or pet rocks, and watch all the poor Johnny-Come-Latelys drool with jealousy.
LibraThings are heating up, Libra. Summer is here, and you know what that means: It’s time again to pour hydrochloric acid on every single article of clothing you own that isn’t a tube top.

Right now, you are having a fashion emergency, and someone needs to drive you to the nearest Forever 21, and FAST! After a lively 80s montage of trying on various tube tops, you will invariably settle on the fabulous blue-sequined one, and then your life can truly begin.
