What Do You Love About Music?

Almost Famous

Almost FamousFor movie fans, they would easily recognize the title. It is a line from one of my favorite movies Almost Famous. This movie has everything I like; good music, rock, the 70s, girls, writing, and of course, the movie itself. Billy Crudup did a great job on being a rock star here.

The movie will take you to the cool, laid-back 70s. It tells a great story about a kid writer (William) who was given an assignment by Rolling Stone magazine to write a story of a promising band Still Waters. While watching this movie, I can’t help but envy the characters of Russell (Billy Crudup), the band’s guitarist, and William (Patrick Fugit), the kid writer. Russell is everything I wanted to be: cool, guitarist of a rock band. On the other hand, if music wouldn’t work out, a rock n’ roll writer would also satisfy my soul. I can imagine how cool it is to go to the tour with the band and write everything about it. You also get to watch their gigs for free and you get to hang out with the band: instant fame!

But aside from the movie’s settings and characters, it also has a cool story. It tells a story of a band struggling for fame, a story of lovers, friendship, and family.

There are also unforgettable words of wisdom from Russell: “I’m a golden god!”, “I’m on drugs!”, and the question William asked to Russell, “What do you like about music?”

If I’m going to answer the question, I would say that music is the expression of my soul. Music creates a place where I can call home. Whenever I play music, it is the time that I become myself; no inhibitions, no lies, no fear, no time. It’s just me and the music. Playing music is like my own Nirvana.

Confessions Of An Addict

writingI admit that I’d become an addict. Once I tried it, I never managed to resist. It started as curiosity. I found myself doing it over and over again. I found a piece of my missing puzzle. It may not complete me as a whole, but it hugely contributed on my personality, if not on my soul.

I’m talking about blogging. I find writing amusing and a great way to express thoughts and emotion. I also like to leave something behind when I’m gone so this could serve my purpose well. I may not be a world famous personality, but through my writings, I would leave some of my personality behind.

Although lots of writers say that they don’t have any intention to change the world, but we must admit that it is an achievement to influence lives.

I’m so addicted to blogging that I created accounts on several blogging platforms. I have lots of thoughts to write but only have small amount of time. And aside from writing, there are lots of things that I want to do including playing music, reading, and learning.

I also like to lie down and watch a marathon movie on a rainy day.

I also make sure that I keep my main blog alive and updated because it is not only a passion or a hobby. My main blog is about my faith and sharing the word of God. I prioritize it because it is not for me but for Him. You can visit my main blog here: http://ourlivingbread.com.

I’m also addicted with Him.
