Good music

Here's a list of music that's worth listening to. Well, in my opinion, anyway.

Tuesday, 2 August 2011


Since this is the last month of summer holidays, here's what I need/want to do:

  1. Read "The Three Comrades" and "Farewell to Arms"
  2. Find a German book and read it
  3. Play the guitar every day
  4. Do a lot of drawing
  5. Go to the seaside
  6. Watch as many films as possible
  7. Prepare myself morally for 9 months of hard studying and events and dancing
And here are some goals that are less likely (or not likely at all) to be completed:
    1. Stop snacking between meals
    2. Do maths exercises
    3. Not spend more than an hour a day at the computer
    4. ... 

    What's with the blogs?

    Hey peeps!
    Today I'll share some of my confusion with you. You know the "Next Blog" thing at the top left of your screen? Well, how is it that the next blog is always
          a) about religion and God
          b) about someone's newborn kids and/or pets
          c) about something rather interesting, but hasn't been updated since, say, 2009
          d) in a language that's unknown to me.
     It's not that I don't respect all these people's need to write and share their life and beliefs, but are there any blogs about anything else? Like specific interests? Art, books, parties, music? And if there are, why is the "Next Blog" anything but?

    Rant over.

    Thoughts on the sea

    Hey there!
      I thought I'd write about something I love - the sea. I visit it every day and I feel like I could stay and watch it forever. It's so fascinatingly natural that it inspires me to write and think more deeply.
      Sometimes I imagine that the sea is like a person, a human being. Everyday it is both the same as the day before and completely different. It goes through an entire spectrum of moods: angry, peaceful, thoughtful, sad and so many others. And if you visit it often enough it becomes a part of you, just like a dear friend.
      The most magical thing about the sea is how it pushes you to create. I believe that if everyone in the world were to live by the ocean, all of us would be painters, writers, poets, sculptors, musicians, singers or actors. There would be no wars, or corrupt politicians, or murders. We'd all eat fish and vegetables and be happy. Our lives would be like fairy-tales - starting with the "once upon a time" all the way to the "happily ever after". With lots of sea water in between.
