Bad Bloggy Friend

To my two readers, my cousin Ajay and all my bloggy girflriends (and you too Nathanael),

Sorry that I can't seem to remain consistent. You are probably appreciative to have a break from my talkative, obnoxious self.

Things are good. Shaila's hives broke into full fledged crazy purple marks all over her body and she had to go on some crazy ass meds, but she is back to her full-on, obnoxious self (where do you think she gets it from? Hello, John) so I think we are all good now.

So, a couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine who is a photographer asked me to come up with an original song for her website. I think me posting pictures of myself where I think I look all cool ass with a guitar lead her to believe I am actually good at it.

The thing is, I am a terrible guitarist. I truly display major suckage in the guitar playing category.

But I love to sing and I love to write songs. So I continue to bug everyone with my crappy guitar playing skills.

I will tell you more about my short lived days as a musician one day, but in the meantime, check out the song I recorded yesterday from my home studio. Shaila fully cooperated and sat quietly (with a little help from Nick Jr. - Diego you rock!) and Nico slept a continuous hour to allow this happen.

So I thank them. And "the Academy."

("The Academy" being the Sprout channel and Nickelodeon. Holla!)

Check out the song if you can. Those of you who are on Facebook (I won't say her name but it rhymes with Randall) and my nice family and friends may have already seen it, so don't worry about torturing yourself again.

It's called "Don't Turn Around" and is a Masala Chica original. I will fix it up all pretty like this weekend. You can get to it by visiting the following website:

Tania Sones Photography

She is a super talented photographer so if you live in the tri-state area and need someone who is highly skilled with a camera, give her a call. And if you want, we may be able to cut you a deal if you want "DJ Masala" to come along for the ride.

Just kidding, DJ Masala is on sabbatical right now after that little old fight at the Knights of Columbus (Sorry Mr. and Mrs. C!).

Good grief, woman! Is there anything you are not extraordinarily talented at?

You never cease to amaze me!

Sara Plays House said...

That is lovely!
I would totally come watch you play in a funky coffee shop. Do let me know when you tour Atlanta. :)

so.... urmmm. your song totally made me think of Tyler and cry. like a baby. (<---not sure which part is more awkward, the part where I cry, or the part where I cry like a baby).

Loved your song.

Nikita said...

I. Love. It.

Tracie said...

I'm with Monique. Is there anything you can't do?

I can't get to the song. I'll have to find it on FB later.

DG at Diary of a Mad Bathroom said...

What a nice song. It works really nicely with the montage of wedding photos.

Sarah said...

Just checked it out. You are multi-talented! I wish I had some modicum of musical intelligence. Alas, it was not to be.

Momastery said...

sister, did you tell them that you are a MODEL TOO?
and can you post the kids songs you gave to my kids? they are so amazing. my kids still listen to them everyday. actually, we need another cd because ours is all scratched up. this would really probably make a more appropriate email than comment.
love the song, you are brilliant.
love g

Amy said...

OMG!! You have a beautiful voice!! I would kill to be able to sing, Kiran...if nothing else just to soothe my little one to sleep.

I am seriously impressed with how talented you are! Love the song:)

Salt said...

So you are gorgeously pretty with mad writing/songwriting skillz and now you are an amazing singer too!?

I hate you.

But just kidding. Holy wowness! This song is great and your voice is so beautiful. (And perfect for the website also. I was getting a little misty looking at all the pics with it playing.)

When you are famous, don't forget me. xo

PS Your friend is a great photographer! I love all her work.

Tania said...

WHAT???? Ummm... the song rocks and you totally do not suck at guitar my dear. Thank you, thank you, thank you SOOO much for doing this for me-- you are a STAR!

PS. I really do mean it... you record 'em and I will post 'em..


Lemon Gloria said...

Karls said...

Very cool! Just another thing we have in common - I too once had a brief interlude posing as the singer in a rock band.

The song is fab-u-lous!
