You may be thinking, “What? A collaboration for a musical?!” Uh, well, not quite… we’re still working with text (we have our reasons why we have blogs and not vlogs 😆), but this time our monthly Collaboration with a Purpose has music as the theme, or more specifically, World Music Day! 🎼🎤🎧🎷🎸🎹🎺🎻🥁 The Fête de…… Continue reading Alert: A Musical Collaboration!
Okay, we’re now approaching the end of January 2018… and my gears still haven’t quite started yet. I know, I know, I made a goal of getting back into blogging and cooking this year, and in my defense, I did cook something (simple) and also read some of my favourite blogs this week! I think…… Continue reading Random Video Day: How Disney Uses Language
https://youtu.be/fj6r3-sQr58 I think it’s incredible how well that turned out, I can’t imagine it’s very easy to plan and execute! ~Nicolle ❤ A Short Self-Compassionate Letter Dear Self, It’s nice to see such a well choreographed act. 😀
https://youtu.be/vLDVBel1Peg This is one of my favourite soundtracks! So much that once in a while it’d get stuck in my head even when I’m not listening to it. 😆 It’s called “On Your Way Back” from the game Ragnarok Online, which plays in a desert town, and my favourite part is the rap-like part that…… Continue reading Mid-Week Video Day: A Soundtrack for a Desert [Ragnarok Online] (and a Short Story)

https://youtu.be/VVOFibwVMw0 I love video game soundtracks, those that tell a story without words, and this is the main reason for my love. ❤ The quiet guitar, about to tell a story of a world with two moons. The whistling of a wanderer alone in the world, the sadness as he leaves the grave. Another guitar…… Continue reading Mid-Week Video Day: The Opening Video that Made Me Fall in Love with Game Soundtracks [Wild Arms]

Just in case you’re wondering about the discrepancy in my post title. 😛 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3k84GI-AgB4 That was really fun to watch, but I’m just amazed they’re able to play while running and jumping around like that! Too bad my own…… Continue reading Mid-Week Video Day: Baroque Music in the Key of Comedy
Wow, what uncanny timing! A round the same day I wrote about The Blue Sky Tag and nominated Talasi Guerra @ Braver Than Before, she nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award! Thanks very much, Talasi, it’s really lovely! ❤️ Like the Blue Sky Tag, the One Lovely Blog Award is a blogger-nomination award…… Continue reading One Lovely Blog Award!
It’s really hard to believe, but it’s been over 20 years since I first started learning to play on my late grandmother’s piano! I’m not a professional pianist, but I still play on it every other day and have it tuned every 6 months, so when I got married a couple of years ago and…… Continue reading The Piano, My Heart and Me
