on the loss of tom petty who widens my jetty by shannon kringen

For me the loss of tom petty is more intense than any other famous songwriter . His work was more personal ….more close….to my heart and his voice is the most interesting….of them all. Such tones came through….my favorite since I was 11 years old and I’m now 49. The lyrics, melody, variety of emotions and humour are also brilliant….really just pure love came through tom petty….great story teller….he was so driven from
Age 14 to make music of his own….obsessed with it really. Watch the 4 hour documentary “running down a dream” and find out. He was lit from within. Lots of synchronicity in his career/ music path….even his two wives had the same birthday….what patterns….and the song “a face in the crowd” sounds like a premonition of meeting his second wife who was literally a face in the crowd…A very sensitive human who was abused and neglected as a child and found music to be his home. Very feminine and masculine both. ( the dark side was he smoked millions of cigarettes and lots of refer – bad for his lungs and whatever else smoking harms). When his uncle was a crew member in florida He met Elvis on the set of a movie called “follow that dream” when he was 11 in 1961. I first heard tom petty on a pizza parlor juke box when I was 11 in 1979 and literally ran over exclaiming “oh my god who is this?” and he’s been a symbol of following your heart and being true to yourself ever since. Keep dreaming. Keep doing what you love and have the guts to say no to what you don’t love. Focus on your passion let the rest go….I say “tom petty widens my jetty” in one of my poems because his music reinforces me /backs me up like a friend….I use tom Pettys music to help me feel stronger and less alone. (I use Tori Amos music in a similar way) I also just love to sing along, memorize lyrics and get in a zone and trance out when I listen to music I love. Both tom petty and Tori Amos have nuances in their recordings. I love neil young music for similar reasons as well….but the passing of tom petty feels very deep….so happy the music will be here on earth forever….

i feel closer to songs i love than to any humans i know! and to my cat. i am not really a “people person” up close and personal. SOLITUDE is my favorite thing sometimes. i love being an art model because i am with people and yet in my own world at the same time. self contained. i love recording my voice and broadcasting it and sharing my art online- then going back into my own solitude world.

wear make up or be natural? body hair or shave by shannon kringen

My thoughts on make up: I like the freedom to be natural or wear some make up but agree with questioning this and when a woman feels like she has to wear make up to look ok or feminine that’s when it becomes destructive. …Also they put nasty toxic chemicals in some make up….I feel the same about armpit hair and all body hair- I tend to not shave and I think it’s silly than women are expected to shave off body hair to be “feminine” where’s men are just fine with all their natural hair etc if I was s man id probably have a beard!

Face paint is also fun to play with literally performance face paint but also I see make up as “paint” like a costume or theatre ….i used to feel like I shouldn’t even leave the house without make up and I’m glad I got over that like in my early 20s I decided to hell with that I’m just going to be natural but sometimes I wear a little bit of make up but I can’t stand putting on foundation like skin colored make up all over my skin I can’t stand doing that….although if all women were told that they should never wear make up and that wouldn’t be good either and also if a man wants to wear make up that’s fine with me so I think for me the healthiest thing is to have the freedom to choose but to not be pressured into it whether it’s shaving or wearing make up whether you’re male or female.

One guy that I dated called make up war paint and he said that he did not want to go out in public with me if I wore make up and he demanded that I be natural and that’s no good just like if a man said to me you have to wear make up or you’re not attractive than that’s also awful either way! Freedom to choose make up or natural….body hair or shaving. Also I’m lucky because my job is being a nude Figure model and it doesn’t matter if I wear make up or not they don’t seem to care in fact they probably prefer if I don’t! And they don’t care about my body hair either. Being a natural human is all they want me to be I also have naturally curly hair and I just let it be.

Although I do add some blonde streaks in my hair because it reminds me of how I looked as a child in Southern California but sometimes I feel like to heck with that I just want to let my hair be natural and my mom has beautiful natural silver hair as a 70-year-old and it’s gorgeous and she’s never dyed it and it looks great- although the point should be that it’s fine to have natural hair weather it looks great or just not just natural is fine. So I guess I really don’t buy into the mainstream culture way of doing things…

tompettylivelasttime

tom petty music means a lot to me. since age 11 when i first heard refugee on a juke box in a pizza parlour while feeling sad about some childhood issues i was grief stricken and “refugee” made me feel better… like i can handle this i am strong….and every since that day i have been following their music and seen them live many times since 1984 when i first saw them.

i also have found out that tom petty had a pretty challenging childhood and in some ways so did i. something resonates when someone is angry and wounded and rebellious and yet finds something they love and puts their heart and soul into it. i find that inspiring. music and aRt heal. i find music healing to create and listen to and my own visual aRt that i make soothes me when i create and share it.

so many songs….so many entire records not just ‘hits’ but solid songs on each record creating a moood, telling stories. im still processing that there will be no more tom petty tours, no more new songs released (though i hope they do release unknown recorded songs he did that never got released- pretty sure there are some) he was a very spiritual,sensitive,intuitive man in touch with his feminine and masculine side very strongly- also had a WICKED sense of humour! totally unique human being. i love his voice so much. the textures he created with his vocals. the dylanesque byrds voice, the old blues voice, the folk/country soothing voice, the beatles like harmonies….and his own unique way of pronoucing words in his songs….really love to sing alone and imitate his voice. (i feel similar about the voice of tori amos with her textures and playing with cracking her voice and going up and down on the scales-….also love and enjoy the travelin’ wilburys…

still processing why i loved tom petty music and energy and his personality so much. i think i turned him into a symbol for me to “follow my dreams” and “follow my heart” that is exactly what he did and i am my happiest when i follow my dreams/heart and intuition.

he met elvis at age 11 on the set of “follow that dream” and i first heard tom petty music when i was 11 and ran to the juke box hearing “refugee” and being blown away by it. i got the record soon after and fell in love with that music on the whole album- i drove my family nuts listening to the same songs over and over and over again and to this day some of my friends tease me about how into petty music i am. on “Damn the Torpedoes” i love the tracks ‘you tell me’ and ‘lousianna rain’ in addition to the hits: refugee, here comes my girl, don’t do me like that….and their last album “hypnotic eye” has gorgeous tracks “shadow people”, “power drunk”, “all you carry”, “full grown boy” are some of my favs. they paid such attention to detail on their recordings. layers of sound. well mixed and produced. vocals and instruments. gorgeous work. tom petty compared their way of recording songs to oil painters to mix colours and do layers and layers and it takes time but it’s worth the effort and patience to create great work.

the melodies of tom petty are so gorgeous. he was way more than a “rocker” yes i love the rock n roll kick ass songs but he also did gorgeous ballads and soothing songs- with such beautiful well crafted melody. (same with tori amos= gorgeous melodies she writes very sensitive souls they both are. tom petty and tori amos are my two favorite songwriters.

here are some of the random things i have typed since tom petty passed away…10/2/17

#tompetty fly free beautiful soul. have loved your music since 1979 when i was 11

Tom Petty was magical.

On behalf of the Tom Petty family we are devastated to announce the untimely death of our father, husband, brother, leader and friend Tom Petty.

He suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu in the early hours of this morning and was taken to UCLA Medical Center but could not be revived.

He died peacefully at 8:40pm PST surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends.

– Tony Dimitriades, longtime manager of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers on behalf of the family #tompetty RIP

Tom Petty talking about the magic of channeling songs from an energy force and being a conduit. Tori Amos has mentioned similar ideas on how she writes music. The creative process is spiritual ….I know some if the most interesting poems I’ve written just pop into my head – I hear the words and write them down. I love and resonate with aRtists who see it this way….I think neil young and bob Dylan have also said this same thing….magical mystical creativity….dancing with eNeRgY

Funny video of tom petty and gary shandling joking around with Each other. They both passed away suddenly in a similar way while at home at age 66….weird coincidence….
https://youtu.be/WIvNe569Q9g

Tori Amos did a Tom Petty song last nights spliced with Fleetwood Mac that’s cool! Somewhere in Europe she’s on tour right now. Very special to me since those two are literally my favorite two songwriters

Touching post by musician pete droge who I heard open for tom petty many years ago., That makes me cry reading about how tom petty helped pete droge with throat coat tea and sound engineer etc and vocal warm up techniques ….so love that he cared about the music and not ego fame bullshit etc and what a great sense of humour he had

Part serious and part joking: I just thought of something now Stevie Nicks can join the Heartbreakers because she’s always wanted to join that band she says seriously: but tom said no girls in the Heartbreakers so she sang with them several times as a special guest/honorary member so now she can join- toms soul does not mind I’m betting! Yeah actually I bet you musician’s will do that like Bob Dylan and Jakob Dylan and Stevie Nicks and Neil Young and Jeff Lynn from the traveling Wilburys maybe they will do a tribute to tom petty and like play his music just like they did when George Harrison died….and Stephen stills and Graham Nash and Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen Eric Clapton and Paul McCartney and whoever else wants to join- whoever played with Tom and/or loves Toms music. But I’m really going to miss the voice of Tom Petty he had a very unique way of singing that was quite beautiful in my opinion so many textures to his voice

I’m
Grateful I saw Dylan and petty live in 1988 with my dad. And here’s a Sweet Dylan quote on petty: Bob Dylan pays tribute to Tom Petty following death
“It’s shocking, crushing news. I thought the world of Tom. He was great performer, full of the light, a friend, and I’ll never forget him.”
http://www.nme.com/news/music/bob-dylan-tribute-tom-petty-death-2146580

More feelings on Tom Pettys music which I have loved and followed since 1979 when I was 11 years old: if you look at the entire body of work that Tom Petty wrote it’s way better than just hits! there’s all kinds of cool songs on his albums that are not hits but very good songs if you listen to each album from beginning to end there so many interesting tracks not just hits- there’s rich textures and sounds and moods and stories and so much in his music if you really listen to all of it a lot of my favorite songs are not the hit songs like Luna and Magnolia, a face in the crowd, shadow people, criminal kind, Kings road, spike, it ain’t nothin to me, power drunk, all you can carry, supernatural radio, angel dream, Louisiana rain, you tell me, echo, rhino skin, swingin, Pirates cove, turn this car around, beautiful blue, have love will travel, alright for now, yer so bad, straight into darkness, a wasted life, and tons more….might even make a list of all the cool songs I love that are not hits!

listening to tom petty’s radio show he had called “buried treasure” Buried Treasure Show #22 where he played rock and blues and country music he loved by other artists that he wanted everyone to make sure to know and he talks about the music too…. #tompetty. ( for those wondering the tom petty “buried treasure” radio show is on satellite radio so you have to pay a subscription to listen to that or if you join the Tom Petty fan club listen for free with paid membership…. I’m a member for one year… I did that so that I could get advanced tickets for his last concert that we saw so it’s not free to listen to his radio show is what I’m saying)

When an aRtist dies you realize what a gift they are to the world….their aRt stays here whether it’s music, movies, paintings, poems, novels ….what a treasure they are for humanity…. #tompetty RIP your music and music videos live forever!

A #tompetty song I love from 1982 not a hit but a beautiful song “a wasted life” RIP tom petty
