Day 256 and ready to podcast it up for Martinez Girlz Radio!  I am so stoked to move MGR over to the VOC Nation network.  They have been so good to me and it is the perfect fit.  As most of you know I have been podcasting for a few years now trying to see what works and what doesn't.  Adding MGR to the VOC Nation network is a move that I have been wanting to make for some time.  Positive vibes VOC Nation, now lets podcast!

Last week Danielle and I discussed in more detail our Fozzy Friday, R.O.T.N. album release party and getting ready to see Electra again.  Miss the live broadcast?  No problem.  Click on the picture below to download!

Thought of the Day

Cleaning your plate when done vs throwing it in the sink can change your entire day.  Such is life. If you defile your being, clean it up. Don't just let it sit in the sink of life because if you do it will pile up and may become a burden to clean.  ONE Love!

As I said in the video I really feel blessed to be able to work in the field I love but I need to start making wiser decisions on which types of gigs to take.  After losing hundreds of dollars last month I have been in hustle mode taking any gig I can which has led to days like this.  I learned a lot, met cool people and made a couple of bucks but I just don't think I can do it anymore.  I mean, if I HAVE to I will but I REALLY am going to try and make this shoot my last low pay/background work.  After I was done with the shoot I didn't feel like going out AT ALL.  I knew I just needed to get home and regroup then force myself to go out.  Everything seemed to take a positive turn when our Lyft arrived!


It was really cool to hear Ryan's story and how Lyft helps him pursue his passion, music.  We Martinez Girlz are all about the positive vibes but sometimes we need positive vibes in our life to ignite our souls.  That is exactly what happen on the way to House of Blues.  I have never seen Fozzy live and didn't know what to expect.  Chris is very dear to my heart and it was amazing to see him perform with his whole being.  His band totally brought it.  They were so entertaining and genuine.  There have been times when I have seen bands play live and they gave off a "trying too hard" vibe but not Fozzy.  Fozzy is legit, too legit to quit!  After the show we hung out with Chris and it was exactly what I needed.  Sometimes in life you have your go to people who uplift your soul by simply just being there for you when you need it the most.  This summer was gnarly and hurt my pink feelings but now that it's fall I feel refreshed, renewed and no longer am effected by the disappointments I had.  Seeing Chris reminded me of who I was, who I am and who I am meant to be.  We also had a cool convo about life, music and sharing positive vibes all around with Fozzy bassist Paul Di Leo.  It warms my heart and inspires me to see Chris doing his thing on his terms.  Some people are naturally well rounded performers and he is definitely one of them.  Much Love, Light and positive vibes to Fozzy.  Long live rock'n'roll!

Some cool quotes from my morning read I thought I would share with all of you.  Positive vibes!

"The creation is quite like a spacious and splendid house, provided and filled with the most exquisite and the most abundant furnishings.  Everything in it tells us of God." - John Calvin

"To everyone who conquers, I will give permission to eat from the tree of life that is in the paradise of God." - Revelation 2:7

"God set man in paradise, giving him the opportunity to advance, so that by becoming mature and by sharing the divine life, he might thus ascend to heaven.  For man was created in an intermediate state neither entirely moral not wholly immortal, but capable of becoming either." - St Theophilus of Antioch

Thought of the Day

"The world is not like a pic painted by an artist centuries ago which now hangs untouchable in a museum Its more like a wrk of art in constant process of creation"

Bright and early on Day 244, the business?  Getting a good workout with The Mertzes without aggravating my rib.  We just got back a few hours ago and our workout was successful!  Nothing beats being outdoors with my cardio buddies Fred and Ethel.  Every time I go up into the Hollywood Hills or Runyon Canyon I come back home with a clear head and full of inspiration.  Not only am I getting my body in shape but being out in nature always brings peace of mind.  Going through my break up and mourning the death of my grandma have been easier to deal with while embracing hikes, long walks and alone time with The Lord.  No distractions just me and my Creator figuring out why I feel the way I do, understand it, embrace it then letting go.  How freeing it has been.  I love my Mertzes and I think there is something to be said about using your furry friends as therapy to sooth the soul.

Last weekend Danielle invited me to The Viper Room to see Electra.  I think she is so talented and cannot wait to see where her career goes.  This was the first time I was introduced to her music and had no idea what to expect.  I left The Viper Room a new fan!  Her sound, lyrics and vibe was just what I needed.   Her dad is even in the band. I know first hand you have something special when you get to collaborate with family.  Positive vibes to Electra and her band, your music touched my soul.
