Hey guys!

Just wanted to let y’all know I’ve added a few new poems if y’all wanna check them out! You can find the links at the side of the page.

Working on the sixth rewrite of “Two Against The World” but it’s looking and sounding a lot better now. Hopefully that’ll be complete soon and I can get to work on the last two songs of the EP I have in mind…

Hope everyone is well,
Battle on!

Here’s To You Xenites!

Posted in Uncategorized on February 4, 2012 by TheFifthSister

This one is dedicated to all the Xenites.

So, I’ve been back from XenaCon for a few days and I miss y’all like crazy. What an amazing weekend, am I right? Thank you to all who were part of it!

I left feeling so inspired and wanted to express my gratitude. This is a song I wrote a few years ago and usually I dedicate it to my best friend when I perform. It reminds me of Xena and Gabrielle’s relationship. And it reminds me of the Xenites I’ve been friends with for a while and the new friends that I made at the con. I had it stuck in my head all weekend and now I wanna share it with you.

Love and gratitude to you all. The Xenaverse fills me with so much goodness, hope and wonder.

Battle on!

P.S. I filmed this at work yesterday… Hence why I keep looking to my left/right 😛

Happy 2012

Happy New Year one and all!

Hope everyone had a lovely festive season. Decided against resolutions… instead I’m just determined to be more creative. Today I’m working on lyrics, trying to get a good body of work completed so I can try to do some recording and get songs out there.

I’ve also discovered Instagram for iPhone. What fun that is so far. Going to attempt a project a friend of mine did last year; photo a day. We’ll see how long that lasts.

My life currently though is just revolving around getting ready for XenaCon at the end of the month. I cannot wait to meet Lucy Lawless and Renée O’Connor. I love those two. And talking to Melissa Good about her work. Gods, this trip is gonna be amazing!

Well I hope y’all have got exciting times ahead!

Best wishes for 2012

The Nubbin Song

Posted in Music, Sanctuary with tags , , on August 22, 2011 by TheFifthSister

Oh my gods, I can’t believe I didn’t blog this already!!

At the end of June, my good friend @Sez101 came to visit me for the afternoon. We often get together to discuss all things geeky and plan world domination convention trips and whatnot. On this particular day we went out for lunch, sat in various coffee shops across the city in amongst playing in geeky shops and getting errands done. She’s an avid Sanctuarian, like me,  and I’d been running some ideas by her for the original Sanctuary song I’m still working on. Being the loveable dork that she is she started singing jokey lyrics at me and that led to us bursting into The Monster Mash spontaneously in the middle of Superdrug (I think that’s where we were getting odd looks from other shoppers)

And that led to us seeking out a coffee shop with a quiet corner to allow us to delve deep into our geeky minds and pull out a parody of The Monster Mash based on one of our favourite Sanctuary episodes, season one’s Nubbins, picturing singing it for all our @GA_GD friends, Amanda Tapping and we got carried away with all the fun we were having…

We were very proud of ourselves. Sez is a great partner in crime and this was true more so than ever in this venture. I made a demo and posted it on my tumblr, facebook, twitter…. I can’t believe I didn’t post it here.

So please, if you are a fan of Sanctuary, check out this demo and the lyrics.

The demo can be found here: Nubbin Song [Demo]
The lyrics can be found here: Nubbin Song [Lyrics]

Neither myself, nor Sez, own the rights to either The Monster Mash, Sanctuary and any of the characters mentioned in this song. We are just two nerds having fun and expressing our love for one of our favourite franchises. Please enjoy!

And if you’re a Sanctuary fan, you may also be interested in my Stargate SG-1 inspired song, Ballad of Carter.

Now that I’ve shamelessly plugged myself sufficiently I’ll be off… Battle on!

Wow, it seems like forever since I’ve posted something here. I’ve been working on new stuff so it’s not like I’ve just forgotten about this place.

Currently working on about five things. Gods, stressful trying to organise a thought but it’s fun and it’s nice being able to move between ideas when I reach a block in one. So my current works in progress revolved around Xena (yes, that same song is still being written… trying to perfect it!), Buffy, love, childhood and Sanctuary… I’m excited and trying to get something completed soon.

I’ve been listening to lots of nerd rock and nerdcore artists lately and am feeling very inspired. Really got into The Bossfights lately. Highly recommend them. They are like a nerdy, more hardcore Linkin Park…. very talented guys! And they are teaming up with Sci-Fried on SF’s next project! Let me tell you, I thought my head was gonna explode when that was announced! Gods, I want to so badly see both of those bands tour together and this is just like a match made in heaven for me.

I wanna make a video. I really wanna make a video. I guess I gotta have some better recordings of songs. But what would I make a video for? I’d love to do a Xena video with that being my current obsession at the minute…. or a Stargate one. I gotta get me some cosplay stuff! Ha.
