THE MAGIC OF A SOUNDTRACK

As I enjoyed my long, long winter break, I spent some time meeting with friends, catching up and going out. However, not only I had the time to catch up with my friends, but also with my reading and movie list. And this week I found the time to enjoy a good home cinema. AsContinue reading “THE MAGIC OF A SOUNDTRACK”

Tick, tick… BOOM! How much time do we have to do something great?

Spoiler Warning!  “[…] lately I’ve been hearing this sound. Everywhere I go, like a tick, tick, tick… Like a time bomb in some cheesy B-movie or a saturday morning cartoon. The fuse has been lit. The clock counts down the seconds, as the flame gets closer, and closer, and closer, until… all at once [boom]”.Continue reading “Tick, tick… BOOM! How much time do we have to do something great?”

Supercut and nostalgia

Credits in image – Being a media student, I could pretend I have always been well aware of what a supercut is. Still, that would be a lie. It was only a few weeks ago that I decided to look up the definition of this word.  According to the Oxford Languages dictionary, a supercut isContinue reading “Supercut and nostalgia”

The Rise Of Måneskin And Why It Matters

Photo credit @etro/ Instagram – To someone who isn’t deep into Italian music (and I’m guessing the majority of the people reading this aren’t) the name Måneskin is probably new, or at least a very recent discovery. I doubt many people outside of Italy had ever heard of the band before 2021.Yet Damiano David (voice),Continue reading “The Rise Of Måneskin And Why It Matters”

Why Don’t We Go There: Why The Dislike for One Direction’s Music Is (Most Likely) a Product of Your Misogyny.

Alright. I’m going to lay it bare and say it out loud: I used to still am a fan of One Direction. And by that I mean that I have a special playlist for all of their songs which I often listen to repeatedly (there are quite a lot of bangers in there (steal myContinue reading “Why Don’t We Go There: Why The Dislike for One Direction’s Music Is (Most Likely) a Product of Your Misogyny.”

Kanye West – Reanimator

  The waiting was gruesome, but Kanye never faltered. Every now and then he applied his ear to the chest of the specimen, and bore the negative results in typical Kanye fashion: by throwing a non-sequitur rant. He’d wax hyperbolic about breadth and width of his art, claiming that it couldn’t be contained by mereContinue reading “Kanye West – Reanimator”

Classical Explorations

While classical music has been a rather large part of my cultural education, it hasn’t played an important role in my adult life. I do like to listen to it playing in the background while I study, read a book, or do one of my other very wild favorite occupations. But after all this time,Continue reading “Classical Explorations”

Review: 69 Love Songs by The Magnetic Fields

Ah, love songs. They’re hard to love, but harder to hate. The two are never far apart. Except for today, that is. Around Valentine’s Day people usually start to ponder more about love. What’s it all about? Worth the trouble, or just a pile of rubble? It’s different for everyone. Yet the songs on theContinue reading “Review: 69 Love Songs by The Magnetic Fields”

Seven songs of Christmas: a holiday soundtrack

  The holidays are around the corner and with that comes Christmas. There is a lot to say about this festivity. On the one hand Christmas can be materialistic, commercialized, boring and a disappointment (last year I heard someone say that they did not like Christmas because they did not like their family). Not toContinue reading “Seven songs of Christmas: a holiday soundtrack”

Take Me to Hozier

  When a music freak (lover) like me finds out that one of her favourite musicians is coming to her town and that there are still some tickets available, even though they apparently had already been available on the internet for a while, it is time for a party, and of course a new articleContinue reading “Take Me to Hozier”
