Everything about SNORK
Let’s get one thing straight first; this is not just another blog that keeps up with the latest news on the music or travel scene. I don’t do journalism; I’m not nearly pretentious or vain enough to think that I could live up to current journalistic standards. And to be perfectly honest, I don’t know shit about music too. I know what I like and what I don’t like. You’ll just have to settle for that…
Then, what’s the use? Throughout the journey that’s my life, big me is trying to find or pay caution to moments that make my life worth living and jamming some meaning into it. As I discovered, two of the most invigorating things to broaden my perspective on life are music and travel. At best you could describe this pun of articles to be a (b)log of what makes my fragile heart beat just a tad faster.
Steady as I go TRIPPIN’ through songs, albums, artists, cities, landscapes, concerts, festivals, collectables, I will attempt to take you along on my journeys , hitchin’ a ride to hedonism.
And just like me you can get it on and explore, discover, rediscover, get nostalgic, get blown away by the beauty that lies within MUSICAL JOURNEYS (instructables below). Because if you look close enough, what a wonderful world it is indeed!
How to rock the SNORK-blog :
Somewhere start highschool, one of our teachers explained to us the works of long- and short-time memory. It all boiled down to this simple fact: to get matter into your long-term memory, one needs repetition. I love discovering new music or rediscovering the old, however suffering from occasional dementia, I tend to forget what I listened to pretty fast. I used to write down songs or artists that struck me so I could look it up afterwards. But since a classical pinboard to put my notes up on, is so passé (however vintage it may be) I came up with the idea of bringing to life my own digital pinboard, which is quite easy with technologies nowadays. If you look close enough, you’ll find songs pinned in each and every article I write.
This is the least you could do :
Not to put anyone under pressure but let’s see if you can come up with some suggestions of your own. If you should suddenly feel thoughts or songs boiling up from your comment-writing fingers, don’t hesitate to share. Get nuts, get crazy baby and smash in some musical links in your comments. It would be nice to have a little variation! Take me away on your own musical journeys, whatever that might involve I leave completely up to you, that’s your decision …
My Instant Karma on Instagram
We live in an ‘instant’-society, that’s a fact. And the more instant it gets, the less meaning is seems to contain. Nevertheless, beauty often lies in simplicity. The more complex things get , the more beauty gets lost … So let’s cherish those seemingly insignificant moment and create ‘instant feel-good ‘. Slow down, try to look past routines and open your mind to the extraordinary that lies just around the corner. Smell the fresh pot of coffee, gaze at the black hole sun or feel the rain on your face, pamper your dog or your cat, break a rule, have a drink, get drunk … I promise it will kickstart your heart. Music can help you do just that; it has the power of opening up the mind. Music is fantasy, music is emotion, it lifts spirits and heals the miserable.
If you keep that in mind, seemingly insignificant instant-posts of instant-moments combined with just the right music can create meaning, one for me, another one for you. So please, put some meaning in my heart-shaped jukebox , that will be my SOS to the world. ‘Hashtag’ songs along, whatever pops to mind …
