‘I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.’
‘I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human.’
‘I’m always amazed that people take what I say seriously. I don’t even take what I am seriously.’
‘There, in the chords and melodies, is everything I want to say. The words just jolly it along. It’s always been my way of expressing what for me is inexpressible by any other means.’
‘I’m not a prophet or a stone aged man, just a mortal with potential of a superman. I’m living on.’
‘I suppose for me as an artist it wasn’t always just about expressing my work; I really wanted, more than anything else, to contribute in some way to the culture that I was living in. It just seemed like a challenge to move it a little bit towards the way I thought it might be interesting to go.’
‘What I do is I write mainly about very personal and rather lonely feelings, and I explore them in a different way each time. You know, what I do is not terribly intellectual. I’m a pop singer for Christ’s sake. As a person, I’m fairly uncomplicated.’
‘I’m just an individual who doesn’t feel that I need to have somebody qualify my work in any particular way. I’m working for me.’
Rest in Peace, David Bowie.
What I’m reading – Lately I’ve been much better getting books finished. I’ve finished the 6th Mortal Instruments book: City of Heavenly Fire. I, then, moved on to Carrie Hope Fletcher’s book: All I Know Now.
What I’m currently reading is Stardust by Neil Gaiman. This book is set in the Victorian era starting in the unusual village called Wall. This village is separated from a whole other world, the land of Faerie, where Tristan, the young protagonist, is from. He finds himself adventuring off into this new land, sent there by his true love Victoria to find a fallen star. There is also a film based on this novel, information for which, I will link here. It is a truly beautiful film with such a wonderful cast.
What I’m watching – I have recently been watching Once Upon A Time Series 1 and 2. I love this show because it has a unique concept: all fairytale characters have been cursed and therefore pulled from their world and dropped into ours. A 28-year-old Emma Swan, daughter of
Snow White and Prince Charming, is the saviour: the only who can break their curse, but only if she believes. It’s a fantastic show.
Other than OUAT, I’ve been watching good ol’ Friends. There’s no use in me explaining that show because if you don’t know it you’ve clearly been living under a rock. However, if you don’t know the show, you should definitely look it up. It’s classic, and fantastic in every way.
What I’m listening to – I have been listening to a lot of Young Guns recently, and I absolutely adore their music. My favourite song of theirs in Bones, I’ll insert the video below.
Other artists and albums I’m listening to in Adele’s newest: 25 and Bryan Adam’s Get Up. Two amazing new albums. Check out Bryan Adam’s songs You Belong to Me and Brand New Day and Adele’s single Hello and the track Miss You from her new album.
What I’m quoting –
