Premierement, j'aimerais souhaiter la bienvenue a mes nouveaux amis du Quebec!  Je vous aime beaucoup, meme si je vous ecris plus souvent en Anglais (ma langue maternelle).  J'essaierai plus souvent de vous addresser en francais (peut etre meme ceci forcera mes amis anglophones d'apprendre quelques mots dans une des plus belles langues au monde!  Qu'est-ce qu'on dit... que le Francais est la langue de l'amour?)

For those of you who didn't understand a word I just said...

Firstly, I'd like to welcome my new friends from Quebec!  I love you very much, even if I write more often in English (my mother tongue).  I will try to address you in French more often (and maybe this will force my anglo friends to learn a few words in one of the most beautiful languages in the world!  Isn't it said that french is the language of love?)

(BTW... if you hit the links above, you can learn a few love words in french... IMPRESS the women gentlemen! (and ladies.... most men will melt in your palm if you speak to them in french... GUARANTEED))

So, as some of you have been following, I've been doing a retrospective on the first season of Anterockstar (watch it!) in preparation for the launch of Season II.  It's difficult for me to write about season one considering all the pain I went through during that period, and all the feelings I have inside myself that may, or may not be resolved.  I've done alot of work and introspection to try and make sense of it all... I had not watched the first season in a long time, and when I tried to watch this morning, I'm still not able to make it through without shaking.  Some wounds just never heal...

But voices do.  My singing in the first two episodes was absolutely so horrible that I still have trouble listening to it.  First of all, a voice on it's own with no accompaniement is the ultimate test of a voice.  If you can move people with just the sound of your voice, you're a standard to be met.  I was no standard then, but I've since been working very hard at improving.  I've even managed to  nail down some Depeche Mode (watch it!), and it turned out WAY better than the one I tried in Episode II. 

The entire team dissolved after Episode II....

The only singing I had ever done before we attempted the studio time was to my babies... and even if I wasn't great... they still loved me just the way I was (watch it!).  Which essentially, gave me a basis for improving...

It's amazing what you can manage when you're supported, and how far you can travel (sometimes way beyond even your own expectations).  I'm so totally supported and inspired right now I know things will turn out completely different from Season I, so I'm pumped and ready.  I hope you're all looking forward to seeing the changes we've made, as much as I'm looking forward to showing them to you...

And speaking of changes, this mornings Anterockstar SOS goes out to all those people out there who support me... you are the cornerstones of my sucess my dear friends, and I love you all... just the way you are.  You show me your true colors in every comment, every kudo, every message... thank you so much, all of you.

Cindy Lauper ladies and gentlemen... showing her true colors, and just how much she's evolved since she was a wild haired crazy girl who wanted to just have fun...
