I’m ecstatic for this one! I’ve been waiting patiently ever since I read the book , Salinger by David Shields and Shane Salerno. And now it’s here Rebel in the Rye. Enjoy the movie trailer and let me know what you think.
I don’t know if you remember, but I like watching time-lapse videos. I truly believe it’s a creative art form. I admire people who share nature’s beauty on the internet, especially for those of us who can’t be there in person and afford to travel.
When I watch this video, I’m reminded of my youth spent on family road trips where Dad would drive us out into the California mountains, and then head towards the upper Northwest region. We would drive, explore, and then pitch up our tents to camp overnight.
Watching these inspirational videos creates a peaceful and calming mood for me, especially when the video is paired perfectly with the right music.
So, I hope you’ll take a quiet moment from your day and enjoy this video. Let me know what you think!
It’s finally the weekend!! I need a little escape so I’ve been listening to vintage 90’s music.
Classic Saint Etienne…a British alternative band formed in 1990. I found them on Youtube and I’m so glad I did! They have that beach/indie vibe that I like. Nothing Can Stop Us is my favorite song from Saint Etienne.
When I listen to this song…it reminds me of San Diego, when I’m visiting my family out there, and cool Adam Brody . I have no idea why.
This same kind of thing happens when I listen toRush and the song Lessons will come on. I think about Las Vegas, Nevada. Yes, I spent some time there too. I don’t know if certain songs do that for you?? Does it make you think of some random moment in your life?
Check out their videos below and all the awesome filters used in filming. All before Instagram was invented. Gotta love it.
The main character in my current manuscript is gifted with musical talents. She plays both the violin and piano. Her dream is to attend Juilliard. In my research I discovered that the school runs their very own Youtube channel.
I love watching The Juilliard School’s Youtube channel. It’s my go-to for inspiration, not just for music (which I love), but to receive some insight into the lives of these gifted professionals. It’s amazing to watch the sacrifice these students make for their passion.
This video highlights one of their viola students and you can follow his Youtube channel hereand his audition storyhere. He’s full of positive energy, which I LOVE!
If you’re ever in doubt about fulfilling your dreams, passion or maybe you’re just feeling stuck… watching positive and uplifting Youtube channels such as this one is an excellent starting point.
Film score composer Thomas Newman is one of my favorite music genius. It’s amazing to view his Imdb credentials and well, I can’t help but notice that he does not have an Oscar yet. Why not? He’s conducted so many mega films.
So when I watched Spectre last weekend on Hulu, I was reminded why his work inspires me. Of course, all the scenes in the movie were clearly intense, but have you ever paid attention to the music composition that goes along with it?
It’s not surprising that my favorites from the soundtrack coincide with some of my favorite scenes in Spectre. This one in particular…Out Of Bullets, where Bond is lovingly gazing into the eyes of Madeline when she tells him she can’t stay. She can’t be apart of his world. It’s such a heartfelt moment for these characters (sigh).
The ending of Spectre is also one of my favorite and perhaps the best in all of the Bond films. That’s my opinion.
I love this track so much. I just wish it went on longer. Listening to this song reminds me of Iceland also, especially during the dark winter season. And I’ll admit to you that I actually meditate to this as well. Yes…it’s that relaxing. So put your headphones on and close your eyes for this one.
