QUOTE: David Bowie

Standard

‘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.’david-bowie-2013

‘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.

Music: Young Guns

Standard

yOUNG-GUNSToday I am recommending the rock band Young Guns since I have recently gotten into their music and absolutely love them.

Technically, I found this band a long while ago as I had listened to a single of theirs on repeat – this was Learn My Lesson. I hadn’t thought much more of them though until a friend of mine reintroduced me to them with the song Bones, which is brilliant! The video is pretty cool too.

As a fan of pop-punk and alternative music, I was bound to love Young Guns as their style of rock really fits into this. The vocalist has a great voice and the rest of the band make the songs sound incredible.

Check out the few videos below as a taste of their music:

YouTube: Carrie Hope Fletcher

Standard

2788821300000578-0-_You_have_to_make_things_happen_and_create_opportunities_not_jus-m-5_1428940861315Today I’m recommending Carrie Hope Fletcher, and yes, you may be thinking I’ve already recommended her YouTube channel in the past but that was in connection to Tom and Giovanna Fletcher’s channels too (See that post here).

Carrie has been on YouTube for many years now and, through her honesty, her genuinely lovely character and her positivity, has been able to build a successful following online. Her videos are in a sit-down vlog style but occasionally Carrie will post a follow-me-around ‘daily’ vlog. Topics within her videos include Disney, covers of songs, her life and her work, her writing and general discussions and mini ‘motivational’ speeches.

Carrie is a very talented young lady with an amazing voice which she uses to sing covers, create original songs and for a living; she works playing Eponine in the West End’s Les Miserables. On top of  this, Carrie is a published author with her autobiographical non-fiction novel ‘All I know Now’ and she is currently writing her second novel, her first fiction book, ‘On the Other Side’ (which I cannot wait to buy and read).

With little else to say, check out her videos (examples below):
