About 12 weeks ago GOOGLE+, LIFE.
It's been a wildly busy shake-up of a week or two! While big news was breaking here, I was working my first Broadway Show and then had back-to-back film shoots which all kept me from posting right away, but also gave me some time to reflect, digest and now I'm so happy to express what I'm feeling about this amazing place, one particularly amazing guy who built it (ahem +Vic Gundotra), what means to me, what I think is next...

TAKE A BOW
I've got a special "gratitude post" coming in honor of the Vic-torious man who made Google+ and who also became a role model in my world. So, I'll save my happy-tears and gushy thank you's for that little note later. But over the last few days I realized... 

As +Vic Gundotra took his bow here on this amazing stage we call Google+, I was sitting in a Broadway theater as the curtain call came down, and the crowd erupted into a standing ovation and the cast, crew and everyone who made it possible cla

About 5 weeks ago KISS & TELL
Happy Freaky Friday G+niuses! Sorry for being a little but quiet since our giant Hangout Concert craziness at The House Of Blues [this is me right before I hit the stage] that night... I've been typing up the stories to tell you and working on plans for our next big adventures coming very very soon!

I loaded a ton of photos in G+ here hoping it would #autoawesome me one of those sweet new "Stories" but it looks like I'm gonna have to go through them old school style, and I can't wait to share all the little real-life vignettes that happened to me down south... From the glitz of the stage and show with you to the encounters with strangers in the city streets, the tarot reading with a live big band soundtrack in the french quarter square, to the jazz band on Frenchman Street that played circles around me 'til I was dizzy and kept me rocking (and taking notes) 'til 3am. 

For now go make some great Friday stories to tell and I'll meet yo

Hey G+niues! What a wild ride that was! My heart beat has been replaced with the big round bass drum of a live brass band marching down the streets of New Orleans and I've got you guys shining in my eyes like a fabulous on-screen hangout concert after-glow.

Lots more photos and stories and edited down videos of the show with new angles and even-better sound on the way! But first I gots a lot of unpacking to do. Be back tonight with more :)

XO, Daria

I rolled in from the after-after party of +HEDWIG on Broadway with stars in my eyes, songs in my head, blisters on my feet, my shoes in my hand and glitter everywhere. ;)

About 3 weeks ago STARTED FROM THE BOTTOM...
Now we here!!

It's almost our anniversary! Tell me what you've been UP to :)

Hey G+niuses, we're getting into that magical time of year when we remember how far we've come since we met almost three years ago! Time has flown and I feel like we've all grown so much. We've grown closer together. We've grown into ourselves little by little. We've even grown up... Maybe not in the traditional sense (goofiness and fierce joy to the end)! But we've definitely grown UP! Like up- up! Like skyscraper up! Like looking down on the world from above up! Like traveling at 30,000 feet up! Like almost high enough for our fingers to touch the sky up! 

SO HIGH
As I took this photo, from the rooftop of a New York City skyrise last week, sipping iced tea and having a meeting about the upcoming album I'm working on for you all, and the show that will follow its creation, and all the interactive elements I'm designing t

About 10 weeks ago SHE RAISED ME
I know I know Mother's Day was on Sunday. But if you guys know +Wendy Musk - affectionally nicknamed Mama Musk by you - you know she deserves to be celebrated every day! So, here's a little about my mama and me.

She raised me in cafes and concert halls. Under pianos playing scales and on her hip as she ran through flute concertos. Toys were mini mud huts we made for my figurines, and blanket mountains for tiny endangered species. We painted masterpieces with our fingers in the mornings before school and found patches of sunlight on the couch to curl up in, in the afternoon. If we ran away we ran together, always finding magic and adventure. We made friends with everyone we met, knew all the names of every barista in the tri-state area.

She raised me to be her friend, a wild ripped-jeans classically-trained rebel. I was (and am) a mini-mold of my mama, strong-willed a passionate performer, a student of notes and nuance of tone. She and I have a  secret language

About 1 week ago COMPUTER CRUSH
Ooooo baby that's a sexy beast! Say hello to my new and shiny, super-speedy, uber-powerful, mac-daddy purchased especially to make sure our Hangoutiversary Concert goes perfectly!

RETIRED WITH HONOR
In honor of July 16th and our up coming Hangoutiversary Concert I've officially retired my old laptop that's been with me since hangout concert numero uno. She made so many memories possible with her cute little 13" screen that illuminated with your faces from around the world so many times in the last three years... But alas she'd become the computer equivalent of the Millennium Falcon - tons of sentimental value, tons of cool factor, but a total jalopy. She was tiiiiired. Lately I'd been looking at the spinning rainbow ball way more than I'd been looking at you.

AMP IT UP
Enter the 15" hunk of gorgeousness before you. Huge thanks to CO-OP Connected Credit Unions for making this all possible. They've named our little partner

About 13 weeks ago BROADWAY BABY!
So here's the big secret reveal you've been waiting for! I'm thrilled announce that I'm part of the team for +HEDWIG on Broadway starring Neil Patrick Harris!! Tonight I'll be hosting their opening night red carpet and doing interviews with the amazing cast and crew!!

IF YOU DON'T KNOW HEDWIG...
It's time you do! This unbelievably hilarious powerful timeless and now truly timely show is finally hitting broadway after debuting off-broadway in the little (now famous) Jane Street Theater 16 years ago! After that it became an award-winning cult-hit film and now the original creator - John Cameron Mitchell - and the original composer - Stephen Trask - have updated the show for 2014 and brought it to the biggest and most storied stage new york has to offer, Broadway.

THIS MUSICAL TRULY ROCKS
One of my favorite things about the show is it's literally a rock show! A fantastically fabulous 80's / Queen / Bowie-style glam rock / pun

About 2 weeks ago TO BE INDIE
It's the 4th of July and the sky is bursting with light and one beautiful thought is stuck in my mind, "Now being independent doesn't mean you're alone."

Independent. It's an interesting and sometimes overused word, especially in music. "Indie labels" are usually huge conglomerates of their own with the same kind of old-school wheeling and dealing tactics as the majors. "Indie musicians" are supposed to be living off of ramen and sleeping on friends' floors, but they're also Radiohead and Adele and more. It used to feel like everyone had to carve their own path, all on their own, or buy into a system that was already falling apart. I've seen fellow open mic night kids get signed and dropped and signed again, just to get stuck on a shelf and disappear. I've seen others make it big and stay so tight-lipped no one would ever know how they made it there.

What I've learned with you guys, is that today everythin
