  • PDX neighborhood gassed by ICE and DHS again, for the provocation of some yelling and some spray paint. They used that damn mosquito fogger too. Biden is apparently “closely monitoring”, and mayor Ted Wheeler is pushing to punish property crimes more harshly, instead of working to protect Portland residents from indiscriminate chemical weapon deployments.

    Team Raccoon PDX is a mutual aid group working to get people (especially children) functional respirators to protect then when they are gassed in their own homes.

    they still won’t disclose exactly what chemical weapons they are using but they insist in court that they aren’t environmentally impactful, despite repeating testing that demonstrates the residues ar full of heavy metals…

  • Portland

    Portland.

    You took me in your arms

    and said,

    “It’ll be okay.”


    How am I to know

    if that’s what you mean?

    I’m only human.


    Portland.

    You made so many

    of your people a star

    but you never thought

    of why they’d rule.


    Portland.

    Can you hear me?

    Can you hear me

    cry over the boys

    that never gave a damn

    about me?


    But I can’t imagine

    a day without the people

    who made this girl

    blossom into a flower.

    I can’t imagine how much suffering

    that I have to go through

    in order to say that it’s my time

    to go through the changes

    that I want to make in my life.


    Portland.

    Can you see it too?

    Or are you blind

    to see all the changes

    that she made

    just to keep you?


    Because you roam around

    with people like Alyssa McKay

    and The Unipiper,

    just so you could

    forget how she cried

    herself to sleep

    that one December night.


    Portland.

    Will you know my name

    if people ends up

    breaking me into two

    like how others proclaimed

    how I made them feel

    like they don’t belong?

    When that’s all

    that I’ve been feeling

    since I got here.


    Portland.

    Who am I to judge you?

    You are someone like me.

    You are someone who cries to herself

    but that doesn’t mean that you are weak.

    It means that you have a heart

    that will be breakable

    but never by the same hands.


    Portland.

    How will you love again?

    Even after my days are through.

  • 2007 was lit

    Hello everybody :)

    So… I wanted to write something about how this week has been. To start, here where I live if we go out from Monday to Saturday we have to be back at home at 7:00 PM and all day at home on Sundays. But that’s old news.

    I started to wrok again btw, at home, of course.

    Ok, now Taylor related stuff.

    I was about 10 years old when I first listened to You Belong With Me. The rest is obvious. Now you may be wondering why it took me so long if Taylor’s career started in 2006, right? well, basically, back then I was around 7 years old, I had no access to internet and Tim Mcgraw wasn’t a thing in my country. Theeeen in 2010 was this big start for me. An old friend of mine lent me his copy of Speak Now and that same night I played it on my computer while checking the booklet that got me fascinated. Even though I loved each song, I was extremely into Haunted, but this story is not about track 12.

    image

    Now here comes this big revelation that came to me on YouTube just yestarday.

    I was watching the Sparks Fly video, this one https://youtu.be/oKar-tF__a 

    image

    you know vibing hard to it and then THIS…

    https://youtu.be/V_ddn4tJSBw *add stars and tiwwchnt choir*

    image

    When I read “original version” I was like… I need to check this out even though I was not expecting it to be a real thing. I was shocked, litteraly. The way lyrics are different and how she talks about falling in love in a bar when she was about 17… singing about this guy that she had a crush on leading her up the staircase? That she’s gonna strike that match tonight? That she would love to hate it but she can’t because he makes it like a firework show? shooked can’t describe how I felt yesterday and now I still feel now lol.

    Anyways, I loooove how cohesive the lyrics are in this version, basically they met in a bar, fell in love and sparks fly. But I really love how lyrics go so well with the instrumental in the rewritten 2010 version. I’m glad Taylor got the chance to give this song a try and ended up being an all times fave.

    This might be old stuff for 2006 Swifties but I’m so happy. 

    If we check the Speak Now booklet, the hidden message for Sparks Fly is “Portland Oregon” and doing some research, that might be also old news for some swifties, this was *supposedly* written about a singer named Jake Owen when Taylor was about 17. 17 singing about being in a bar. The old Taylor was back since 2017 and I didn’t noticed lol.

    image
    image

    I wasn’t sure how they met so I did some more research and turns out they met in 2006 when Taylor was an oppening act to Jake’s show at a bar and according to soundslikenashville.com Taylor posted about that night on her MySpace profile. Here’s a screenshot:

    image

    Taylor mentions she dressed up as an angel and her band wore devil ear headbands so I had to look for it and here are some pictures of that night  that you can easily find.

    image
    image

    So… Sparks Fly is about two people meeting in a bar *where she actually met Jake* and she likes the guy’s green eyes. Seems like Taylor said the song was more about fantasy than real life, which is good since Taylor was still 16 and Jake around 25. The song was written during 2006 - 2007 and then officially recorded with lyrics changed in 2010 for Speak Now, the self written masterpiece.

    Ya’ll, I love finding out stuff like this even if I’m more than 10 years late. 

    Ps: I wish I was THIS dedicated at doing research for school projects. Study, it’s good.
