February Playlist

February 4, 2016

It’s getting closer and closer to spring, even though it seems quite far away at the moment. The February playlist is therefore filled with some hopeful tunes, cold electro beats and some really scarily relatable heartbreakers. This week I discovered both a new song from Highasakite (one of my favourite Norwegian bands) and by teenage idol Zayn so you might say it’s quite the eclectic list. I will be adding songs to the list all through February so make sure you get a listen here

Quoteful tuesday

Quoteful is not a word, but it should be, it would mean “full of quotes”. So this is my Tuesday full of quotes, inspiring and funny, bold and mindful, heartfelt and strong. 

“People who work on things stay together, otherwise you’re gonna end up alone, like Cher” Hannah Helene Horvath (character on HBO’s GIRLS played by Lena Dunham

“It is not ignorance but knowledge which is the mother of wonder” Joseph Wood Krutch

“Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses”
Ann Landers

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony” Mahatma Gandhi

“In order to properly understand the big picture, everyone should fear becoming mentally clouded and obsessed with one small section of truth” Xun Zi

“I don’t trust words. I trust actions”
Unknown (but totally my mentality after a hard time last year)

“Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow” 

 

How I love all these amazing quotes from this person called Unknown! Such an inspiring person! Hahaha, juuuuuuust kidding ;)

Januar-Playlist

January 5, 2016

Processed with VSCOcam with b1 preset

Mitt januar på øret er fyllt med flau pop, deilig pop, norsk hiphop, retro klassikere, new french house og amerikansk r’n'b – alt på godt og vondt.

Alt preppet og klart her

Det var på tide…

January 2, 2016

Altså hipp hurra Beatles på Spotify! Og for en nytelse det var å endelig kunne lytte til alle klassikerne igjen og legge til perfekt passende sanger i alle mulige verdens lister. Skal ærlig innrømme at jeg omtrent ikke har hørt på The Beatles på noen år, er det ikke på Spotify eksisterer det ikke liksom ikke lenger (og av vinyl kjøper jeg omtrent kun norsk elektronika og r’n'b fra små amerikanske selskaper).

Så her er noen av mine personlige favoritter fra (nesten) hvert album:

To fra Let it be, såklart!

Og med så fantastiske album-covere måtte det bli en stor playlist!

Filmen er satt til midten av 70-tallet. Tidligere danser Vanessa og hennes mann, den amerikanske forfatteren Roland, reiser landet rundt sammen. De begynner å falle fra hverandre, men oppholdet i en rolig kystby dras de nærmere sammen gjennom spesielle hendelser.

Jolie har uttalt at filmen i sin kjerne handler om sorg, og videre at tapet av hennes mor i 2007 forårsaket mye av det for henne

Filmen minner om franske filmer fra 1960-tallet, og gir spesielt et tilbakeblikk til Jean Luc Godards (Contempt)
