White Flag

I know you think that I shouldn't still love you
I'll tell you that
But if I didn't say it
Well, I'd still have felt it
Where's the sense in that?

I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
Or return to where we were
Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I know I left too much mess
And destruction to come back again
And I caused but nothing but trouble
I understand if you can't talk to me again
And if you live by the rules of "It's over"
Then I'm sure that that makes sense

Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

And when we meet
As I'm sure we will
All that was then
Will be there still
I'll let it pass
And hold my tongue
And you will think
That I've moved on

Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

The commercial was made for the BetFair ad competition. We were fooling around with crossing the lines and some visual effects. Btw .. good visual effect is the one that you cannot notice ;)

House party. Two guys are watching a girl dancing on the desk while the other guy totally ignores her. He is angry and pissed, but then suddenly he shouts out loud: "GOAL!" It appears that he has been watching a soccer game. He explains his buddies why and then all of them sit down to watch the game.

The Twisted Perspectives Project





and then she died ..

how do i feel? you should ask IF i feel. my crippled soul conquered my mind. my angel left me all alone to rot in the miserable existence that deserves to be terminated. it takes me over like a contagious disease that doesn't have a cure. god! please, kill me!

everywhere i look i see her face, i feel her touch. she is deep in me, she eats me alive, piece by piece leaving the rest of my body in pain. she is a vampire that infects my blood. am i still alive or .. ?

she was always with me .. my friend, my best buddy, my muse, my inspiration .. but now she is gone leaving me all alone and helpless, insane and destructive.

i miss her touch, her lips, her smile, her love. she is gone, but she didn't let me go. like an internal torture i see her, i feel her, but i cannot touch her. it is like a glass between us. am i insane or are those my twisted perspectives? a curse that never goes away.

white dress flutters in the wind revealing her perfect curves. she smiles and waves at me. she whispers my name and invites me to join her, but that god damned glass like thing in-between us separates... and i helplessly watch her leaving .. she is dead

Sparkle Pussies Burlesque



Teaser by Nauris Nikans.

They are a group of eight highly diverse women who have come together to share their love of glamour, glitter, performing, dancing, sass, satire and classic strip tease.

They had the good fortune of meeting eachother thanks to the incredible program, Becoming Burlesque, that's offered by Vancouver's one and only Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society. What can you say! Gals who twirl tassels together, stay together! And hence... the SparklePussies were born!

In real life they range in ages by almost 20 years, and we collectively keep ourselves busy as a Senior Vice President, masseuse, waitress, make-up artist, self-employed entrepreneur and mom of two, full time student, marketing manager, librarian and administrator. But who are they as SparklePussies??? They are Blush Lane, BoomBoom Buffet, Dame Booty Dench, Flora Fanny, Lexi Von Vonderful, Shea DeVille, Veronica Vex and Sadie Sweetcheeks!
