If you want to sing out… sing out.

My other blog… but relevant!

Oh I neglect this blog so…

18 Jan

Just like my sleep, my dearest journal, the withering plant on my window-sill, the half-finished paintings awaiting me on my desk, the big box of ideas on top of my wardrobe that i just haven’t got round to implementing yet, the pile of films i haven’t watched yet, the pile of cd’s i haven’t listened to yet, the pile of books i haven’t read yet, the trash i keep forgetting to take out, the bathroom sink i haven’t cleaned the ink stains off yet, the pile of magazines i haven’t cut up yet, the 2011 Amanda Palmer calendar stuck on May that i still haven’t taken done yet……. and all those little things in my lift that get overlooked when i get busy and my mind explodes just a little bit each day.

NEGLECT NO MORE!

See you on the other side…

 

For now, have a really beautiful photo of Amanda Palmer in an Australian yoga sandwich……

Neglected.

5 Oct

I’ve rather neglected this blog of late.

I’m sorry blog.

This blog is dedicated to my love of escapism. I love a fantasy. It’s all about the music, the books, the films, the theatre, etc. etc. etc. that allows me to run away from my life and into lots of other worlds.

Sometimes you just need to run away from your own life.

This is where i run too.

But life takes over. I’m in my final year of my jewellery and metal design degree (aaaaaarrrrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh!) and my work load is crazy, don’t get me wrong i love it, but i still find myself needing to escape….. and that’s why i’m back here.

To keep myself from going mad i’m going to pop back here at least one or two times a week to enjoy a bit of life avoidance and then post it here!

 

And, to start me off, i just reblogged my wonderful wonderful wonderful wonderful wonderful experience at the Amanda Palmer London house party. I can’t believe it was way back in July… i’m still reveling in the moments and i still can’t get over how amazing it was. If you don’t believe me scroll down and ogle the photos and watch the videos. It was the most glorious of days.

 

See you soon!

This is what the future of music looks like.

Remember that time…..

On Saturday 20th July 2013 the wonderfulest wonderful party i have ever been to took place in a bunting covered garden in the outskirts of London… and it was wonderful!

Ozzy Beck (20)

I wonder which house it could be…..

Adele Kirby (7)

Then i definitely knew i was in the right place…. there’s a dalek with rubber ducky bunting!

This is the scrapbooky gift we made up for Amanda. I jazzed up the front with an inky sketch and we filled it up with… well i don’t have any photos of it from the end, but it looked beautiful and was full of pretty photos and drawings and people had written adorable things for/about Amanda…. i hope it makes her happy…

This IS the type of thing i normally post here!

This is normally the type of thing i post to my I Shot Amanda Palmer blog but considering it’s topic i want to post it here too. As you probably know Amanda Palmer is my art rock goddess, and now she has done a TED talk. It might be all about the music business, but anyone doing anything creative should watch this video. Inspiring, passionate and beautiful.

By the way, this is a video for train safety…..!

25 Nov

Potentially one of the best train safety videos you’ll ever see!

Annoyingly catchy (and actually a pretty good song!), as well as cute little animations and you learn not to be a moron on a train track… as well as not die dumbly!

 

…………………….so many dumb ways to die……….!

Psycho

23 Sep

This song is so, oddly, but wonderfully suited to Neil Gaiman (…not that i’m calling him a psycho!)… the english accent, and it sounds like something he could have written with all the twists throughout the song as well as the passively dramatic ending. I love it. Especially this video… something about it says psycho!

Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer covering Leon Payne’s Psycho

 

Glorious.

For ya’ll who found this blog randomly, it is a spin off blog from my main one: Chloe Henderson

I wanted to keep this blog, which is about my cultural loves, ie. music, film, literature, etc. and my other blog, which is more about my creative pursuits, my world of learning and all the other arty bits and pieces that I fill my life with, separate…. it makes it easier to organize it all in my mind.

Anyhoo…. if you haven’t already head over to Chloe Henderson to check out some of my art 🙂

Here is a drawing of me looking cute in a ballet outfit to start you off:
