Blog Hero... Week 5

Wow 5 weeks already... pretty cool huh?? So far I have to commend Shay on her taste of fabulous tunes to get our creative juices flowing, mine have really tried to flow with this challenge. I am slightly concerned by the fact that until now the songs have all been so good, I spend the entire time I am working on these photos listening to that song on repeat just so it keeps my mind on that project, and the day that something really bad comes up I think I may end up being committed - Hell also has to hear it, not the actual song on repeat, me singing it on repeat, as I try to stop torturing him by using my headphones, so he may be the one actually persuading an asylum to commit me?! 
This week I tried to be a bit artistic, Fledge says that she wants to plug I-Pod headphones in to each of the different Rudhs, on closer inspection it does have that look to it hehe, but I ensure you it wasn't my idea. I wanted to pose Rudh in a striking way, and as I was looking through my photo set to pick out THE shot, I found myself thinking of my new city home. I've been living in Amsterdam for a while now, instead of red doors, there are a lot of red windows...
Week Five's song... The Rolling Stones - Paint it Black 
I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
 I know that on Shay's blog post, the video of Marc Almond's version of this song was her choice, and it does seem like a good version, yet to me NOTHING will ever beat the original Rolling Stones version. My Dad is a Stones fan, I was brought up on their music and alongside my mum's love of bands like Guns 'n' Roses and Def Leppard, I attribute my love of Rock Music to them! It even shocked my first school teacher once when I told her, aged 5, that my favourite song was Sweet Child of Mine lol...
