Project Dissertation

I moved to this fabulous city three years ago mainly to; be near an airport for travel, be able to not trade my stilletos for trainers, and to finish my doctoral studies in four years. Yes, that pretty much sums up my priorities at 30. So now I am ABD with nine months to go and San Francisco is no easy city to ignore. Although, I would argue that each experience that deters my academic writing is really just needed inspiration. Welcome and I hope you enjoy...

City Nights

"Let yourself go, come on and trust me, I won't betray this love, cause I don't want to live without it. I just want you to fall in love, I just want you to fall in love with me, I just want you to fall in love, I just want you to fall in love like me..." Tortured Soul
  • In true city form the scholarly work had encountered some tough competition, but at least I was inspired. Maybe not by the latest Jessica Simpson film, or the really bad Mexican ambiance I finally endured, but by the fact that you could walk past the MOMA and W, through the Yerba Buena garden all in the same evening...
  • Then there are the girlfriends, that come together to mix information, cocktails, and outifts. The troopers get on the list and spend the night dancing, later sitting on the curb debating the virtues of pizza over crepes at 2am to soak up some of the vodka before getting back on the dance floor.
  • That night the dj was in good company with a live band and percussionest too. God what would we do without music? Or umm dj's or drummers?

It was surreal to watch Tortured Soul perform live. These NYC boys are skilled musicians and producers. Their sound on stage was as good as any record spun by the dj. Everybody was dancing, moving, feeling the music like one beautiful body. To experience them bringing their music to life with a sound as rich as vinyl will blow your mind...
