VLOG - Jazz for Judes

Ok...not really back.  Just popping my head out of the cave for a minute as my friend Jude is having a hard time so thought I'd make her a vlog to cheer her up... (or make her stab herself in the ears with ice picks...whatever...).  Thank you Ms Rickie Lee Jones.

(Kerry...I've got one for you too in a month or two when I get back to blogging and it involves......MADONNA..and no singing!)

Now, back to my bearskin rug.....


PS - I've lost 10kg since this time last year! (Fuck I'm good).

bahaha! You are too gorgeous - I have the bestest bitches ever.

I totally chuckled at the end of that!

It looks like you had a stack of fun doing that too and it was a lovely, lovely way to start my day.

Can I put in orders for the songs I want next?! ;p

Frankie said...

Glad it made you smile! I did have great fun doing it and it's put me in a great mood that I hope will last! x

Cheryl said...

Thrilled it was just what Judes needed. ((Huge Hugs))

Kek said...

Dammit. I want to hear it, but I'm at work...don't take it down before Iget home, ok?

Frankie said...

Cheryl...haha thanks..although you will recall that I was a Rock Chick way back when so I used to sing a LOT.

Em - yeah nothing like sitting on the bathroom floor in a funny hat to make you feel better about shit :O)

Kek - my post AND my blog are going nowhere!

Friday said...

Are you naked??

Im just askin....

Frankie said...

Friday - I am not answering that. Let's just leave it to peeps imagination ;P It IS the bathroom...

Kek said...

Nice work, Frankie! RLJ is one of my all time favourite singer/songwriters too.

Frankie said...

Thanks Kek.. I must admit though that I haven't heard an awful lot of her work. I have been singing this one to myself since I was a teenager. Favourite song to sing..EVER. (even if I can't hit all the notes!)

Ms Smack said...

You have a great voice. Have you ever taken lessons?

Frankie said...

Smack - no lessons, but I'd love to. Best tip I ever got though was from a drummer who told me to 'sing like you talk'. He said to sing from the chest and not the stomach and to not worry so much about breathing. 'You don't think about breathing when you talk... you shouldn't have to when you sing'. It works!

Kerry W said...

Is there just no end to your talents? :P Love the cap BTW. :) And I can't wait for that next VLOG. Madonna...hmmm...you've got me wondering now. It'll be hot and sexy no doubt. I reckon if we ever meet in person, we're going to have to do a duet! :P :)

blinder said...

Nicely done.

Bathroom acoustics, eh? Always the best in any house I say

Frankie said...

Kerry - let's just say your dancing clip inspired me immensely and I think that I should "Express Myself" hahaha

Blinder - yeah, shower singer from way back hahaha

Kerry W said...

ha..ha..express yourself...intriguing! Can't wait to see it. :P

Memphis Steve said...

I didn't know you could sing! I wish I could. And you sing good, too!

Frankie said...

Thanks Memphis. Singing makes me happy...as does music in general :o)

KRISTIN said...

Awesome Frankie, cute hat and great voice, you're so fun! xo

Frankie said...

Hey Kristin! Thanks. Nice to see your lovely face around again!

Erika said...

That was great Frankie xx

Frankie said...

Thanks Es, I had fun!

Ms Smack said...

Now that's weird, because I thought that singing from the chest, keeps your voice inside!

I'm not an expert, but I thought singing from your gut releases and really throws your voice!

Either way, I enjoyed watching this vid.

xx

Frankie said...

Smack, yeah that's what I always thought, sing from the gut, and I guess that's how opera singers are trained.

But, my drummer insisted that was how his voice coach taught him and I must admit, my voice was actually stronger and I could hit more notes using that method.

Glad you liked it! xxx
