What I’m listening to right now…

 

Macklemore!!! His stuff is awesome. Great beats, great lyrics. Wasn’t such a big fan of Thrift Store when I first heard it (has much better stuff IMHO) however now I’m in lurve!!!

Check out a live set here http://www.npr.org/event/music/166256822/macklemore-ryan-lewis-tiny-desk-concert.

I just found out he’s touring Sydney In Feb. I also found out all shows are sold out, after moving from Oxford, to Metro, to Enmore. Gah…serves me right for not listening/reading to any news or radio. He’ll be back for sure and I will go, but I always find the first ever tour is always best.

What are you listening to?

 

Some belated sunshine…

*ehem. This was last edited October 17th, I was just reminded of the fact that it was sitting in drafts!!*

So a couple of weeks ago Mel tagged me in a sunshine award!!! I had a good squeal about this with Neen, then promptly forgot that I had to DO something in return…so without further ado, some Q&A’s on moi and my own nominees!

Rules:

If you are nominated you must include the link in a blog, linking to the person/blog that nominated you. You must answer some questions and nominate fellow bloggers and link their blogs in your post. Let the people you have nominated know that you have nominated them!

Here are the questions:

1. Who is your favorite philosopher?
Wow this is a hard one. We don’t take philosophy in high school, nor did I choose it as a unit in university, so over the years Ive come across ideas that have resonated, however whether they are my favourite philosophers I couldn’t say – I would need to take a closer, more holistic look at their total works and ideas. I absolutely believe in freedom of speech and separation between church & state (think this is attributed to Locke?).  I like Chomsky, especially his thoughts on mass media, Huxley who I would consider a philosopher, Thoreau as well as Socrates, Plato & Aristotle , whose work, weirdly enough, I have studied in Ancient History. I also really like the thoughts and writings of Hrant Dink, especially around human & minority rights. Continue reading

Top of the year to you!

First post for the year! Hope everyone had a great Chrissy and New Years. I started the year off with a bang with an ear infection and vertigo – yayness! Have you ever had the pleasure of experiencing vertigo? It’s strange and comes out of nowhere. Sort of like being drunk but without any recollection of the fun parts (or maybe exactly like being drunk, then?!).

Anyway, I digress. So 2013. It’s like a blank slate, or a blank page just waiting to be written. a new year holds so much hope and good intention…which brings me to resolutions. Continue reading
