Thursday Tunes

Last week on Thursday a friend texted me asking for some Thursday Tunes recommendations and I texted her a few ideas. But I didn't tell her about James Bay. I discovered his music about two years ago on Noisetrade and have loved his EPs ever since. Well, now he produced a whole album for all of us to enjoy. It has some of his older songs on there as well as a few new ones and I think you should have a listen to it. Also if you're a hopeless romantic like me this album is definitely going to feed you well.

German Wheel

Yesterday I went to the Young Stage International Circus Festival. It has been my second time going and let me tell you both times I sat there at the end of the show with tears in my eyes. There were these young artist full of passion and artistry and athleticism chasing their dreams, creating something beautiful and it just gets to me. They all stood on stage like one big family cheering each other on although being in competition with each other. I guess it is seeing the beauty and talent and diversity in each other rather than comparing and competing with each other.
Anyways there was one act which really got to me. It was performed on the German Wheel (invented in Germany in the 1920s for a "Turnverein") and I really wanted to share it with you (thanks to youtube I was able to find it). I could tell you what the performance is about but I won't so you can find your own interpretation in it.

Movie Monday

Today I want to share another movie of recent with you. The Judge is a movie which deeply touches the subject of a father son relationship without being too foreseeable and cliche.

I thought the movie was very well done, very modern with rather dark filter and little use of color, some exceptional musical choices and a slightly different Robert Downey Jr. The movie definitely falls under the Drama genre and yet is intense enough for a thriller.

Movie Monday

I just realized that I never shared this movie with you. If you've known me long enough you will know not only my love for movies but also my love for Christopher Nolan movies. I believe him to be an extraordinary director and producer with the ability to always surprise you.
No wonder I highly anticipated Interstellar. The trailer of course unlike other trailers didn't give away anything of the movie (it of course only showed pieces of the first third of the movie).

I remember sitting in the theater in shock and excitement and was blown away by everything I saw. I remember how I kept thinking of the time and space concept for days after I had watched the film because it really messed with that concept in any way possible. And yet again time and space are something created by God with day and night and the passing of seasons but I believe when one day we will leave this earth it will be different.

Movie Monday

I love watching the Oscar's every year. I even admit that I totally cry watching them and for anybody who knows me I don't cry much when watching movies. Nevertheless at this year's Oscar's there was a beautiful moment where John Legend and Common performed "Glory" from the film Selma. It was such an emotional performance and left everybody in tears.

Selma was such an amazing movie, very real and honest without making things look nicer or worse than they were.
I don't want to say much more about it as I believe that the movie simply speaks for itself.

Thursday Tunes

For the last two weeks I tried to write here about "Home", about the notion of it, about how it is a sacred place, a place of being and refreshment. I wanted to write about how living in an in between space feels like and how you grow and learn from it but the words just wouldn't flow and then Josh Garrels published a new album called "Home" and it seemed like all my words all my feelings were just put into one album of music. And again it was perfect timing.
So I guess all I need to do is share the album with you. I urge you to listen to it, buy it, dive into it. It is truly an amazing piece of art.
So today I am sharing one song in particular although I had a really hard time deciding which one to share because they are all amazing, but this one is called Home at last. I cannot wait fo that day when we'll be with our Father in heaven and truly be home at last. But for now let's make the most of what we have been given and multiply.

Thursday Tunes

It is about time I post another song by Sleeping at last because his song writing is one of the best I have ever seen. It is beautiful poetry put into songs which take you to other places and the song I am sharing with you today is not different.
The other day I was biking home from work and this song came up and somehow I had not fully taken in this song before but there it was and we all know I am a hopeless romantic and so my bike ride became somewhat of a movie scene and I was imagining all kinds of romance.
The song is called We're still here and I think you should put it on, listen, sway to it and get carried away with it.
And if you do not know Sleeping at last yet it is about time you check them out. That is an order... because I think you would love them.
