Can we talk about the “GIIRRRLLL” Tori did at Caprices for a while?
And I mean “GIIRRRLLL” as in the good old “GIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRL” she did back in the days.
How am i still alive today?

“Bells for Her” live at Caprices Festival, Switzerland. video by Tanya
Has one of you ever attended a Tori show where you just knew she played a certain song or parts of a song for you? Where every atom in your body was sure? It only happened to me once. It was at the Caprices show. I really don’t know why I haven’t told this before, especially since it’s the song that is my blog title!!! I think i was still in shock because the only comment i left on the Bells for Her video was “I died”.
The meet and greet in Switzerland was very powerful. I told Tori that i had so many things i wanted to say to her but that for some reason now wasn’t the time. I told her that I hoped i was ready to tell her my stuff in 2014. She then looked at me for a while and started giving me all sorts of advice and basically assured me that everything was going to be okay and that I could fix anything as long as i believed in it. Isn’t that amazing? How she just looks at you and… sees?
You know how Tori stares when she sings? So it’s always hard to tell if she’s really looking at you or if she is just staring into some magical place in space.
So even though she stared into my direction all the time (I was standing next to Tanya who made this video) I wasn’t sure because it’s the thing Tori does. But then 4:14 happened. And i knew.
“There’s nothing we cannot ever fix.”
I will treasure this moment forever. I remember saying to Tanya: “I really like this song.” and she said: “Well duh, it’s your blog title.”
Photos I took of Tori at the Royal Albert Hall on Oct 3rd last year.
Peter Rauhofer who remixed Tori’s “Flavor” lost his battle with cancer today.
He turned 48 last week.
I’m not a big fan of what he did to “Flavor” (to say the least), but this news really makes me sad.
Much love to friends and family.
