I cannot get to grips with how fast the months are flying by. Doesn’t it feel like Christmas just passed? I can’t believe next week we’re in May already!
The upside is that the sun is shining, flowers are blooming and there’s more reasons to get outside and breathe in some fresh air 🙂
Here are my favourites of the past month:
Favourite Documentary Series
Foo Fighters Sonic Highways. I stumbled across this by accident. I was looking for something to watch and saw “Foo Fighters”. Instantly, I became curious: first of all, “Foo Fighters” and secondly, we’re watching them perform in July so I’m even more geared up to learn as much about them as possible beforehand. The series is split into 8 episodes, where the band members take us on a journey through 8 different U.S. States. Their aim is to produce a song in each state that is influenced by the musical culture of that area. Through the process, we meet different musicians and producers, we get a feel for the recording process and we learn about the development of different music genres. So enjoyable.
Favourite YouTube Channel
I’ve probably followed Jenny Mustard‘s channel for about a year now, and she is honestly, one of the only YouTubers who makes me want to watch each one of her videos. Staying very true to who she is, she makes videos about minimalism, veganism, fashion and interior design. I get bored of YouTubers who are constantly trying to sell products. Jenny doesn’t do that. She talks about things that are important to her and does it from a place of love. Check her out.
Patrick Roche, “Siri: A Coping Mechanism”. In this poem, Patrick tells the story of a young man struggling to cope with his confusing relationships with his family members. Conflicted by his feelings of attachment to them, and the belief that they do not really know or see him. This is the story of a man who feels alone and is struggling to find his place in the world. Very beautiful and cleverly performed.
Tove Lo – Habits (Stay High) – Hippie Sabotage Remix. I know this song came out three years ago, but I’ve been listening to it a lot this month. I love the beat. But more than that, I love how simply the song captures how torturous the experience of grieving a loved one can be. Whether experiencing a break-up, moving a far distance, or coping with the death of someone, I think we can all relate to that feeling that tugs at our hearts in a way that makes us want to fall down and cry. This song speaks about needing to cover up those emotions to “function”. Really moving.
Sending you love,
