Taylor Connect


I'm only a painter and decorator in a mine town about 3 hours west of Sydney, and I've been here for most of my 21 years alive. The good thing about living in a country town is the amount of things to do that don't get you into trouble. Fishing, camping, push bike riding around town and riding through the McDonald's drive thru, and of course (maybe not for everyone) star gazing on a crystal clear night. Being half Italian (I usually just say I'm full blood haha), I love a good pizza, a macchiato with a touch of hazelnut, and thanks to my nonna, I love (perhaps I should say I love trying, because in all honesty I'm a bit of a disaster chef) cooking traditional Italian meals with hint of Australian style. Ive got quite an adventurous side along with the Italian, perhaps it's the Aussie. I've rolled a dune buggy, crashed my bike at high speed going down a mountain (yeah... Ouch!) and I've fell from a tree, but I've never had a sport related injury despite all that. The things we do in our youth. I'm noticing that I'm becoming evermore adventurous as I get older, so there will be more thrills and spills to add to that list!

But before I go too deep in this, if you have managed to read my profile amongst the thousands of others, I would like to give you a huge thanks. In the time it's taken you to get this far, you could of a) complained to someone that it's raining somewhere in the world right now because you don't like rain, b) complained to someone that it's raining somewhere in the world right now but not in your town because your part of the world is in a drought, or c) maybe wonder why it doesn't rain in Antarctica. So thanks.

Music is magic. That's how I would define it in a dictionary. The music people listen to reflect who they are - their qualities, personalty, interests and so on, but much deeper than that is the subconscious connection between a person and music that makes that person enjoy that song or piece. And this mysterious connection is ultimately what has brought the people on this site together, because there is something they love about Taylor Swift's music.

I listen, as I'm sure we all do, to many, many songs, but when I drive in my Ferrari utility vehicle, (a Toyota Hilux with a Ferrari badge ["It's a mystical bond between man and machine"], which sadly was T-boned and thus is no longer on the road, but replaced with a Mitsubishi Triton to carry on the legacy) and of all songs one of Taylor's songs starts to play, I'm caught in a moment which I find so hard to explain. For example, I was driving to a city called Orange (not that the city is important) and I took the scenic route, partially because I like the country scenery and partially because it's quicker than the highway. But while I was driving, 'Last Kiss' started playing. Immediately I was confronted by a memory of when I liked a girl and we had a last kiss, but as the song continued and the gum trees sailed past as I kept driving, the beautiful voice and the very well composed music just made me shed a tear. I don't know why exactly, after all I knew this girl in my memory didn't like me much. Is it because somethings haunt me, or is it because at that very moment, for a few seconds, I understood what love is?

Anyway that's one small experience, but every time I hear Taylor's music, I feel she understands feelings, that she understands love. And really, that is what makes someone more than just a massive international music star - it makes that someone a person with great love, care and respect regardless of an individual's circumstances or background. I guess what I'm trying to say is that if someone can make beautiful music that appeals to you in any way, and you feel understood, you've got more than a music star, and you are more than a fan. You've got special friendship even if you never meet. If you can understand this, you're doing alright.

So where am I going with all this? I don't really know, and perhaps that is the magic of music. Taylor, I've never been to one of your concerts, I've never met you nor seen you in person, and I don't know if I will ever have that opportunity. But, along with thousands of others, I know by your music that you have good qualities, that you have a wonderful personality and that you're the kind of person that I would want a friend of mine to be. So thanks, and keep doing what you're best at - being you.

Well, good job at getting this far. In the time it's taken you to get this far you could a) still be complaining about the rain, b) read the weather forecast for the weekend to see if it will rain and, if it will, you could complain about that or c) search Google and find out if it rains in Antarctica, or maybe watch Ben Hur twice.

So thanks again for reading these exhausting few paragraphs, and thanks again Taylor for touching our hearts with your music, and if we feel down, crank up some good music and call a friend or talk to someone, even if it's just yourself (I do all the time, it won't hurt you). Because what's life without good fun, friendship, music and love?

I love this one particular part of Christmases When You Were Mine. It's just beautiful!

    Hey there Swiftie! So as you may have seen on the forums or in my blogs, I'm writing to you today to personally invite you to join me in a fun little project that is already well under way.?
    To make a long story short (and if you want the long, detailed version you can check out the official project page in my blogs): We, meaning myself and hundreds of Swifties from Taylor Connect are currently in the process of making Official Unofficial Lyric Video for the song "Red". Why, you might ask? To both celebrate the dawn of the Red era and to show the one and only Taylor Swift just what all of this means to us, the fans of course!! After everything she does for us, this will be our way of doing something back for her.?
    Interested? Excited? Confused? Tired? Fighting an uncontrollable urge to scream out loud that you are, in fact, a little teapot (handle, spout and all!)? Well, first things first, the best way to understand what we're doing is to see the original inspiration for this project, courtesy of the folks behind the Broadway Musical "Title of Show"?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtdgvmYUuuA ??

    Now, take that idea and apply it to Red!! So far, the creativity people have been bringing to the table has been beyond incredible and now I would like to offer you your own chance to get in on the action. Just respond to this message expressing your interest, and you can be a part of this amazing opportunity to unite with your fellow Swifties as, with one voice, we celebrate the dawn of the Red era!! Let's give this album and the beautiful artist behind it the welcome they deserve! You might want to hurry though: there are officially less than 20 words left to give out and they are going FAST! So send me a message and join up!
