jacflash video of the day: Sweet Disposition



sweet disposition
never too soon
oh reckless abandon
like no one's
watching you

a moment, a love
a dream, a laugh
a kiss, a cry
our rights, our wrongs
a moment, a love
a dream, a laugh
a moment, a love
a dream, a laugh

chorus
just stay there
cause i'll be comin over
and while our bloods still young
it's so young
it runs
and we won't stop til it's over
won't stop to surrender

songs of desperation
I played them for you
a moment, a love
a dream, a laugh
a kiss, a cry
our rights, our wrongs
a moment, a love
a dream, a laugh
a moment, a love
a dream, a laugh

chorus:
just stay there
cause i'll be comin over
and while our bloods still young
it's so young
it runs
and we won't stop til it's over
won't stop to surrender

a moment, a love
a dream, a laugh
a kiss, a cry
our rights, our wrongs (won't stop til it's over)
a moment, a love
a dream, a laugh
a kiss, a cry
our rights, our wrongs(won't stop til it's over)
a moment, a love
a dream, a laugh
a kiss, a cry
our rights, our wrongs (won't stop til it's over)
a moment, a love
a dream, a laugh
a moment, a love
a moment, a love (won't stop to surrender)

jacflash: Toronto international film fest 2009, sixth night with Shenae!!

Shenae and I started off the evening at the Beacs (surprised?), grabbed a slice of pizza pizza pizza from pizza pizza, and left for Adrian Grenier and the Honey brother's at This is London.


We were escorted to the DJ booth where we could catch a closer look of Adrian...


"Shenae Grimes rocks out with Adrian Grenier in Toronto

90210 beauty Shenae Grimes took in Adrian Grenier and The Honey Brothers at the This Is London nightclub in Toronto at the weekend.

She went rocker chic sporting black satin pants paired with a white lace top for the event hosted by the Entourage hunk's new wave band as part of the Toronto International Film Festival."

from the words of Hello Magazine...



We wrapped up the impressive evening at The Paddock (well, the truth is we ended the evening at Poutini to have a veggie poutine, but that doesn't sound nearly as glamorous haha)

The next morning we went down to jacflash to check out the Shenae Chainback Dress (available only at jacflash) that is finally in store. The dress was co-designed by jac and gill and Shenae Grimes herself!

jacflash song of the day: jewel, goodbye alice in wonderland





This is one of my all time favorite songs, you really have to listen to the song and read the lyrics. I highlighted some of my favorite lines that have really guided me over the last few months.


She is brilliant...


It's four in the afternoon
I'm on a flight leaving L.A.
Trying to figure out my life and
My youth scattered along the highway

Hotel rooms and headlights
I've made a living with a song
Guitar as my companion
Wanting desperately to belong

Fame is filled with spoiled children
we grow fat on fantasy
I guess that's why I'm leaving
I crave reality


So goodbye Alice in Wonderland
Goodbye yellow brick road
There is a difference between dreaming and pretending
I did not find paradise
It was only a reflection of my lonely mind wanting
what’s been missing in my life


I'm embarrassed to say the rest is a rock and roll cliché
I hit the bottom when I reached the top
but I never knew it was you who was breaking my heart
I thought you had to love me
But you did not

Yes, a heart can hallucinate
If it's completely starved for love
It can even turn monsters into
Angels from above

You forged my love just like a weapon
And turned it against me like a knife
You broke my last heartstring
But you opened up my eyes


So goodbye Alice in Wonderland
Goodbye yellow brick road
There is a difference between dreaming and pretending
That was not love in your eyes
It was only a reflection of my lonely mind searching
For what’s been missing in my life


And growing up is not an absence of dreaming
Its being able to understand the difference between
The ones you can hold and the ones that you've been sold
But dreaming is a good thing
Cause it brings new things to life
Pretending is an ending
That perpetuates a lie
Forgetting what you are
Seeing for what you've been told

Truth is stranger than fiction
this is my chance to get it right
Life is much better without all of those pretty lies

So Goodbye Alice in Wonderland
You can keep your yellow brick road
Cause there is a difference between dreaming and pretending
These are not tears in my eyes
They are only a reflection of my lonely mind finding
They are only a reflection of my lonely mind finding
I've found what’s missing in my life
