Fairy Tales Come True: Rosie Hardy {Written by Nick Flash}

Check this out!! Rosie Hardy Flickr

Fairy Tales are real. We all hold the key that unlocks our enchanting destiny.It is up to us to dig deep into our imaginations and bring our fairy tales to life.

Skeptics will constantly try to persuade us that magic is all a trick, love is all an illusion, and there are never any happy endings. This type of pessimism is why nowadays fairy tales are few and far between. Violence is at an all time high, the divorce rate is through the roof, and books are being avoided by our youth in order to be entertained by video games & blue ray discs. It is clear to me that through Rosie Hardy's artwork, imagination & fantasy shall conquer all.

I recently discovered Rosie Hardy's photography on a blog called I Hunt Zombies and was instantly memorized. I had never really seen anything like it. Her self portraits are so surreal they look almost like a watercolor painting. I wondered just how in the heck she was able to create such images with only a camera and then It dawned on me...fairy tale magic.

Her photo's tell the stories of fantasy, wonder, happiness, sorrow, pain, tragedy and TRUE LOVE. After meeting her true life prince, Aaron Nace {on Flickr), their romance blossomed into into extraordinary works of art that gives 1,000's of their online fans hope that one day they will find their soul mate and live happily ever after. Read their incredible love story here.

Rosie's Fairy-Tale is not all flowers & sunshine though, their are many out there who despise her for her imagination and romantic love life. Critics from all over continue to say her work is plagiarism, and they slander her in blogs and magazines from all around the globe. Here is one of her biggest critics...Rosie's ART Slander

While the agnostic will continue to live in their clouded world of pessimism and knock the existence of fairy-tales, it is up to us to truly look deep inside ourselves and use our wonderful gift of imagination to make all of our dreams come true. As you look at Rosie's photo's, you will become immersed in a land of fantasy you never knew existed.

Check it out once again and lemme know what you think.

Let's Play House

So much of my favorite hip-hop in the world has been created from sampling old school funk records.

Digital Underground's 1989 smash hit "The Humpty Dance" features excerpts from Parliament's "Let's play House" and puts a unique hip-hop spin on it. Buy it on Amazon!

I will continue to post tracks weekly to educate you on where certain rap artists got their inspiration from.
