Medical Definition of ALTERNATIVE

: of, relating to, or based on alternative medicine <alternative therapies>

I love all things alternative, alternative rock, alternative fashion, alternative news, alternative medicine, alternative lifestyles, and I started Lavoce due to my desire for an alternative career. To me, “alternative” is another word for liberty and freedom of choice (no, I’m not being political here). What I mean to say is that it celebrates our free will and our willpower that drives us to succeed in whatever it is we want to do, whether it is spend our life playing video games and learning how to tie a cherry stem with your tongue or joining the circus. You have 100% control over your destiny because you have the power of choice. Have fun with it. Enjoy it. Do what you love and love what you do. Live the American dream: always be in pursuit of your happiness.

I don’t care if you want to go all out and do something like some Japanese did in this article, which showcases an example of a wild alternative style: http://living.msn.com/style-beauty/simply-chic-blog-post/?post=324569dc-719f-40de-908e-2cb803e0e27e&_nwpt=1. Whatever you want to do is 100% OK with me. I support any alternative path you take.

My name ain’t eBo for nothing. If you take the words “be” and “do,” remove the “d,” and shuffle the letters, you get my name because I want you to be and do whatever you want. Don’t let anyone ever steal your dreams.

As Robert Frost said, “I took the one [road] less traveled by,/And that has made all the difference.”

Fashion “Freedom” (George Michael Tribute)

I especially liked this video for conveying Lavoce’s purpose and mission visually and audially. Visually, even though the actors aren’t the supermodels they portray, they put in a lot of work to make this as correct as possible, under the field of crossdressing. Audially, it’s all about the lyrics. Listen to the lyrics. There’s quite a bit of depth in them despite the fact that someone filed this video under comedy. “Sometimes the clothes do not make the man” is what it seems to boil down to for me. When I hear it I think of suits and ties not reflecting what we want to express about who we are and who we want to become. We are not trapped by fashion. It is fashion (on our terms) that will make us free.

EBow

2

My name is eBo. An EBow is a real thing. Click here for the definition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EBow. It uses energy to create new synthetic vibrations on an electric guitar (not usually the electric bass guitar, but people have tried it on non-electric guitars). The famous Goth band, Depeche Mode, uses it, as does Smashing Pumpkins, Pink Floyd, Linkin Park, Metallica, etc.

It sounds different to each person who uses it. My name means something different to different people.
