How to throw a Christmas Party?

Let's find out tonight!
Peter and I are going to see Brown Feather Sparrow & Friends in dB's, Utrecht. I am curious!
I have talked about the project on this blog before, namely here.

But I also made a video blog about it. Check it out here.

I normally do not like video blogs (I refuse to call it a vlog) so much (it's just people talking about themselves), but I am going to try and keep it up, mainly talking about music. If you think it's boring, don't watch.

OK, gotta go now. Off to Rotterdam!

i piss Myself off on a daily basis.

Today in my Periods & Genres class, we discussed Bruce Nauman and his video art reminded me of Bas Jan Ader's art projects.
Ever since I have seen this video, some years ago, it made quite an impression on me.
I am too sad to tell you.

So yeah, another sign of life.
I am busy.

there's nothing here to Discover.

Here is a photo of the French writer Victor Hugo (he wrote the Hunchback of the Notre Dame) on his death-bed. The picture is made by the late 19th century photographer/novelist/caricaturist/balloonist/journalist Gaspar-Félix Tournachon, also known as Félix Nadar.
I think this is an amazing picture, especially the composition and the lighting. I also think it is quite interesting and somewhat morbid to shoot somebody on his death-bed, but still, there is an element of sereneness to it, that attracts me to it.

This post was just meant to show you a sign of life.

i'm very glad to see in this Moonlit, cloudy night; the stars are all out of sight.

I would like to call your attendion to this great project from Brown Feather Sparrow (And Friends): many amazing Dutch artists [from the alternative scene, that is] collaborated to produce a Christmas record.
I think it is funny and very thoughtful that the record is not per se a Christian one, but it is open for a religious interpretation [or the other way around] and that is what Christmas is about. About religion, family and friends; not about the presents.

Listen to 'December Radio' and make up your mind.
Personally, this song perfectly sums up my feelings about the December holidays [yes, I am really principled about this].

The whole record is available for free. You only have to click here.
