When I think about my blog and what I want it to be, I always come back to the same point. I want it to be a place to share the things I love, the things that make me laugh and the things that I think are worth giving time to. From this, I always hoped to find people who laughed about the same things, and who’d want to laugh together with me. After all, this whole blogging malarkey stemmed purely from having a lack of real life people who seemed to share the same interests as me.
You know what they say: If you can’t beat them. Tell them to go screw themselves and go hang out on the internet.
It’s clear that my blog doesn’t have a niche, like and unlike many others. Yet, even those blogs without a niche, in my opinion, still feel restricted in what they can talk about. Whether this is something I’ve seen pop up in Twitter chats or just the general gist from reading the blog itself. It appears that even the broad niche of lifestyle blogging has its limits to what it deemed worthy of an entire blog post or should be relegated to a passing mention.
Music. I think music is one of those topics. People review books until books come out their ears. People talk generally about books and movies, if only to tell me that they managed to read 45 books and watch 83 movies in a single month and yet still find time to take a piss and eat their tea. I’m not remotely bitter about this. Not at all.
But, music, I don’t really hear about that. Or podcasts, but that’s completely out of my interest range and you’d have more luck asking Cat about them.
Back to music. I really love music! But not in the sense of that hardcore fan mode, that some people have. I just really enjoy certain bands and sometimes I just really enjoy a song or two. One band that I love to listen and subsequently attempt to rap to, is Twenty One Pilots. Kris and I went to see them the other week in Antwerp, and it was great! Live music is always great, but this was just a little bit greater. We jumped, we screamed, we sang, we rapped, I even climbed on top of Kris’s shoulders and bopped and cheered from up there!
My question is this. Why don’t we talk about it. Quite frankly, I fucking love music and I absolutely think it deserves a dedicated post every time I have a bunch of eye blinding, mildly out of focus band shots obscured by a sea of rock hands. There’s no time for photography skills, I’ve got jumping to do.
If you’re interested my favourite song is Guns For Hands. After that I recommend Trapdoor & A Car, A Torch, A Death & Semi-automatic. What’s something that you think deserves more than a passing mention?
