Caleb from Kings of Leon is a lot more than just a pretty and talented boy

Frontman and guitar player of Kings of LeonCaleb – is a very attractive and talented man, but, in their latest video Walls you can see way beyond all of that.

At the beginning of the video, you can see Caleb from a far sat on a chair playing his guitar, as the song advances, so does the camera… I don’t want to spoil it for you… So, please have a look at the video and watch it until the very end.

I personally loved the song, and the video is perfect for it. Very relaxing yet extremely deep.

Warning: I got goosebumps…

Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive. – Elbert Hubbard

I would love to share every photo, article, video, story and so on that I’ve read and seen about David Bowie, but I can’t… I’m kind of overwhelmed at the moment with the whole situation.

One thing I would like to say is:

“When people accept and understand that one doesn’t have to know the whole life of an artist, their discography, know everyone they’ve worked/toured/drank/partied with, to be able to mourn someone’s loss, but accept that a person (he or she) changed something in them, made them a better person, believe, feel or whatever… That day this world will be a better place.” – I wrote this

Yesterday was an emotional day for many, for others it was like any other Monday, the point I want to get to is that no one has to explain or justify their reasons.

Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive. – Elbert Hubbard

We are human and humans judge, so you won’t EVER please everyone.

Yesterday a lot of people were throwing crap at one another on social media sites (obviously not face to face) saying that they aren’t fans of David Bowie, because they don’t know all his lyrics and only know 3 songs.. You know what? Does it matter if a person is a fan or not of a band or artist or celebrity? Who is one to decide who is a fan WORTHY enough to be called a FAN? YOU can be whatever and whoever you want.

The world is going through a lot of changes, people are waking up by the second and more and more people are following their dreams each and everyday… If we all put in a grain of rice (I LOVE rice) of love or passion, honesty, or anything we can give that’s positive to the world, WE can make this a better place.

So please, stop hating on one another, instead of focusing on the bad, look at the good and positive, we all have something or many things to offer and contribute with to make this a better place.

Have a lovely day, and remember, we can be heroes, just for one day….

Foo Fighters – Times Like These

Mexico City, chocolate covered popcorn and Nirvana

Last night, after an adventurous day out, going to see a “gig” at Bellas Artes (Orquesta Sinfonica Nacional), walking around the centre of Mexico, buying Gansito flavoured fancy chocolate that cost $22 pesos a piece, having to down a coffee because the restaurant called us telling us our table was ready way before the 40 minutes they said they were going to take – just to mention, at least 3 tables were empty when we arrived and asked for a table – eating chile en nogada with beef instead of pork (as I don’t eat pork), it tasted good; didn’t drive me wild to be honest, my favourite part of it was the pieces of pomegranate put on the chile in a white sauce as a topping…

After that very long and delightful lunch, I went on a mini tour or the Zocalo, went into the church of the centre/downtown for the first time; from what I remember, I think the organ is the biggest organ to work in all of Latin America. The church is beautiful, has a very pacific vibe to it, the smell is perfect, tourists having a peek, locals going to Sunday mass, others going to escape reality, others to face it; bliss.

Well, after that I went to watch a movie at a friends place, ended up watching two movies, making popcorn – once piece of advice NEVER read instructions, popcorn gets burnt if you leave it in the microwave for 2 minutes 20 seconds, come to think of it, not one piece of popcorn got burnt, I did come across a piece of uncooked corn or two though… Hey, I’m human!
I then separated the popcorn into two; popcorn on its own in an acrylic bowl, and popcorn in the bag where I added a chocolate kind of spread, not the brand you’re thinking of with an N, but an amazing spread that my friend brought over from the States….

It was late and it had been an intense but wonderful day, time to go home; even though I always get a rush of blood to the head late at night and can’t sleep…. It was time to go.

The Uber driver picked me up, I didn’t know whether or not he wanted to talk as it was Sunday, around 1am, and well, he just might not have been in the mood to talk, tired or whatever, but he asked me what music I wanted to listen to, so I asked if he could put on 105.7 FM.

His first comment after me mentioning the radio station was: “So, you’re into rock?” (In Spanish)
I said: Yes, love it! I guess rock is like a classic, everyone has to love it. (In Spanish, too)

We started chatting about rock music, and I asked him who his favourite rock band is, he answered “Nirvana” without thinking about his answer twice…

I must say, I don’t like judging people by their appearance, and I don’t, but I do judge people to a certain point based on their music taste.

Nirvana is a very deep, dense, passionate part of existence… I admire the members still with us a hell of a lot, and admire Kurt Cobain (lead singer, guitarist and songwriter of Nirvana) loads; No, I don’t say that to try and fit in, nor do I say it because I think it’s something cool people say, he did commit suicide, which is something I don’t understand nor applaud, but from what I’ve read up on Kurt, movies I’ve seen on him, what people say about him, interviews he did, gigs I’ve seen on the internet, the music he wrote and played, he was extremely passionate…

Being passionate has its pros and cons… It can be an extremely beautiful, lovely, exciting thing, but it is also very tiring, energy consuming and can destroy you…. And (in my mind), that is exactly what happened to Cobain.

I wanted to share this story with you all, I don’t think there has to be a reason to everything, and I have no conclusion to this post, I just wanted to share what I thought and felt with whoever clicked on this post.

Enjoy this song played at Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged gig back in 1993…
