110Above Music Festival!

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

Hola!

Last weekend I went to a music festival! It wasn’t some big extravaganza like Glasto, but it was fantastic. It was low-key in comparison but the music, location and vibe of the weekend was amazing. Not to mention the incredible price of tickets. I’d recommend you check out 110Above 2016- I know I am!

Head over to my Instagram down below to check out some of the pictures I took whilst I was there!

Peace!

Tonight I Lived

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

Hey. I’ll be honest and say that I’m not entirely sure why I’m uploading this, other than the fact I can. It’s something I wrote on my phone, on the bus on my way home tonight. So, yeah.. read and hopefully you’ll like it.

∼ ∼

Living with a metal illness such as depression is challenging. In my opinion it’s very similar to the weather. One day you can feel sunny. The next day you can feel dull and stormy. The day after that one you can feel overcast, the day.. Ok, I think you get the weather analogy.

Yesterday was an average day at best. Nothing particularly bad happened on the emotions front, but nothing great did either. I did a radio show, bought my friend a cornetto, took my ‘crazy pill’ and went about the rest of my day. Mostly consisting of moving out of a flat.

Today however, I woke up after a night of barely sleeping and feeling drained, disgruntled and not wanting anything to do with humans. Flash forward two or three hours of having not moved from my bed at all, that I remember I told a friend from work that I’d go to their place for drinks later, as it was their birthday the day previous.

I was filled with dread about having to go and even contemplated bailing out with some half arsed attempt at an excuse. Leaving it till the very last minute to get out of bed and get ready (yes, I was still in bed at 4 in the afternoon. No I don’t care for judgements.) But alas, being the type of human that I am, I always aim to please those I like- I went. I got up, I got a shower, got ready and got my behind on a bus to go out into the world*. (*it was just Newcastle but that doesn’t sound quite as momentous.)

I went. I even stopped into a shop on the way to by alcohol, against the instructions on my prescription. Again I don’t care for your judgments. I arrived, mingled with the 80% of people I didn’t know, and the 20% I did. Tonight I chatted, tonight I smiled. Tonight I laughed and made other people laugh. Tonight I lived. I went and I’m glad I did.

I’m glad for a few different reasons. One being the fact I went to make a friend happy. Another is that I met new people. But the best is that I had fun. Which I wouldn’t have had, had I of let whatever it is in my head telling me not to go, win. I overruled it and loved it. On my bus home I got to see the sky at dusk- which is easily my favourite time of day. The sky was filled with colours other than one, bright and promised wonder for tomorrow, honest in it’s answers and promises. Tonight I lived.

My Own Show on Spark & Music Monday #11!

Monday, June 8th, 2015

Yo! How are we all? I thought as today was the first day of my VERY OWN show on Spark FM, I’d offer up a Music Monday galore type thaaaaaang.

This isn’t going to have any particular generic theme, but instead just music that I have either been listening to a lot recently. or new ones that I love and think will get big.

#1 – First up is Walk The Moon with ‘Shut Up And Dance’ 

It’s been out a little while I think, taken from the bands second album. It’s just a nice good feel good song about relaxing and letting go, being stupid and dancing! It’s a yes from me and my terrible attempts at dancing.

#2 – ‘Every Tear Drop Is A Waterfall’ from Coldplay

This is a song that never fails to make me feel better. The whole of the album, ‘Mylo Xloto’ in fact does that. It’s fantastic. Coldplay aren’t everyone else cup of tea, but there certainly are mine.

#3 – Third up is a new one from the Disclosure lads, it’s ‘Bang That’

A new on from the guys here. I love it. It’s my go-to for just getting me out of the house quickly in a morning. I just throw on anything I can find, not caring for any sense of style- finishing it off with a SnapBack to hide the mess that is my untamed hair!

#4 – is a TUNE from Giorgio Moroder, ft Sia. 

I’ll be honest and say that this TUNE slipped through my musical net until I heard it on my show today. I LOVE IT! It’s a fantastic track. It’s got heavy 80s disco vibes and the fantastic being that is Sia. What more could you want in a track? It’s a BIG YES from me.

#5 – CLASSIC ALERT – ‘All Night Long’ from Mr Lionel Richie.

We all love a bit of the Rich-tea. If you say you don’t you’re a liar. I’m not sure why I’ve found myself listening to this recently, but I have and I’m not even sorry!

#6 – Last up for todays Music Monday is a track from a local band that I love. ‘B L U E L O V E’ from Lisbon!

A great track from a local North Eastern band. I like the music these guys bring to the fold. I get a 1975 like vibe, and thats totally ok with me. It’s not a bad thing- it’s a good vibe!

 

That about wraps up this edition of Music Mondays. I hope you’ve enjoyed it. IF you hadn’t seen it on my Facebook page (how?) and didn’t understand what I meant at the start of this post- I HAVE MY OWN SHOW!

Every Monday, 12-2pm you will hear my ramblings about everything and anything. Nothing new there then, just a definite time and place. It’s going to be fun, I can tell!

Cheers, and enjoy the music- here and on Spark!

Cooking Curry!

Monday, June 8th, 2015

Hungry? Yes? Great. Then make this.

Hi guys, I thought I’d record myself making a curry that I make quite regularly. It’s tasty, quick and pretty cheap to make.

I used a can of coke, but I’m told that the likes of fanta and irn bru work and taste good too!

Enjoy!

Thats it for now guys, be happy.
