Music defines love – sometimes

Music, to me, is by far the most important thing in the world – it can make me feel happy, sad, longing, love, bitter, lost, sexy, angry, excited. I listen to sad music when I feel down, party hits when I do the cleaning, mellow songs when I need to work. I firmly believe that…

Finding hidden gems in music

I am a lover of music – I can’t go through a day without listening to a few amazing songs. I am grateful that I am allowed to listen to music at work, as I couldn’t go through the day otherwise. I worked in the music industry for a few years – then I studied…

Remembering my first love: Events

Recently, I talked to a friend. To a dear friend that I haven’t talked to in ages. I guess that’s what happens when you live in different countries. And it was a good talk. A talk in which I bared my soul and told her all that I felt about my current life, my job,…

12 Songs that Got Me Through 2016

    As I’ve said countless times before, Spotify is a gift to humanity. I love making playlists, I love the Discover Weekly feature, I love that I can turn the volume higher on my iPad from my iPhone. And it’s been with me literally every day this year. And because I always make playlists,…

Normalise paying for art

We’ve all watched movies or TV shows online. We all rely on YouTube to listen to free songs. We’ve all frowned when we saw the price of a piece of art we didn’t understand (or even classify as art). And the list could go on. So I’ve always regarded YouTube as a free entertainment service….

Gramofone

I’m always on the lookout for new music. Ever since I started using Spotify, the ‘Discover Weekly’ or the ‘New Releases’ sections have been a blessing. Other times, YouTube is an invaluable fountain of new music. I sometimes go to local bars to discover artists. So now I’m going to show you an excellent band…

#Stonesism

I was excited to move to London not because of finding a new job, a new house, a new life. I was excited to see the  Rolling Stones ‘Exhibitionism’ exhibition at Saatchi Gallery before it ended on the 4th of September. I saw The Rolling Stones in 2007, during their ‘A Bigger Bang’ World Tour….

On the Road Again – or, a new blog title

When I first started my blog, I called it ‘Musings of a Ramblin’ Woman’. Because of the Allman Brothers Band and their song ‘Ramblin’ Man’. But now I’ve decided to change my blog title to reflect the near-future changes that I’m going to go through. After all the decisions are made, I’m going to tell…

Birmingham Jazz and Blues Festival – Part 2

My mother came to visit me yesterday, as I have my graduation tomorrow! Finally! So I decided to take my mom and my friend to a concert on the last day of the Birmingham Jazz and Blues Festival. I decided to go see Brooks Williams, as he seemed interesting from YouTube. And he also played…

Birmingham Jazz and Blues Festival Part 1

Today was the first concert I saw that was a part of the Birmingham Jazz and Blues Festival. I’ve been living around the area for three years, but I’ve only ever been able to go today (as during the last two years I was visiting my relatives). So this year a friend and I decided…

It’s *NOT* dangerous to go alone

I’ve never attended events on my own. Ever. I’ve only bought a ticket to a networking event after convincing a friend to come with me. I once wanted to go to a Death Angel concert, and no one wanted to come with me, so I bought a ticket for my cousin so I wouldn’t go alone….
