50 (random) facts about me. Part 1.



Hey guys,


I recently asked my wonderful twitter followers if they'd enjoy the "50 random facts about me" tag and the feedback was quite overwhelming. 


So it's time to break away from the music blogging for a day or two and let you guys get to know me a bit better.


A few facts are written on pictures. :)
To make it a bit more interesting I decided to split it into two parts. Here's part one:

Lyrics Love.

Hey guys,

I've done quite a lot of lyrics posts already and I just can't stop myself.
To me lyrics are the most important part of music. 
(Cheers to the musicians who hate me for that ;) I do care about the instrumentals and everything, but I just care about the lyrics the most.)

I relate to lyrics and I learn from lyrics.
So posting my favourite lyrics shall inspire and encourage you. :)

I left little notes about how I think about the lyrics. 

One sees the sun.


Hey guys,

as most of you know, I'm a massive Jim Kroft fan. 

Jim's music has helped me to go through tough situations in life, his words almost help me to understand certain things and to me Jim is a hero in so many ways.

So I was thinking what else besides buying his album twice, getting concert tickets and sharing the tour dates online I could do.

Spotlight On: Dan meets Portland.

Hey guys,

time for another 'Spotlight On:' post, right? 
Today with a wonderful band called Dan meets Portland.


Dan meets Portland is a trio from Portugal and Germany, so their band name just completely makes sense - 'Port' (for Portugal) and 'land' (for Deutschland (German for Germany) ) but wait - why does Dan meet Portland? Who is Dan?

Easy question - he's one of the members:

Updates.



Hey guys,

Interview: Michele Fasciano

A day at the beach: the waves crash against the rock,
the sky colours the water light blue,
people lay in the sun and relax,
children run around and collect sea shells,
couples walk along the beach,
a family takes pictures for the family albums,

a few people build a house.
A house in the sand.
And as they build it, they talk about things,
things that go on in their lives.
And you are invited to listen to them.




Hey guys,

did you recognize the intro? Exactly, it's house in the sand interview time again! I am so excited to present you this interview today.
The very talented DJ Michele Fasciano from Italy took time and answered my questions. 


He is going to be the newcomer Electronic music fans are going to talk about soon! He's passionated, 
he's talented,
 he's got some fresh ideas 
and he's ready to conquer the music world.

Get to know Michele Fasciano by reading the interview.

Spring playlist.




Hey guys,

seems like Spring has arrived in good old Germany. 
The birds sing beautiful songs, the sun warms you up and everyone's in a brighter mood. It's wonderful.

So with the first sunshine being spotted, for me the cold season is finally over. 

No more waking up to a dark sky because the mornings now are light, no more grumpy people because the sunshine makes you happy. (Ok, there still are grumpy people, just not as much.)


You couldn't ask for more, right?
Wrong.
Actually there is one more thing to perfect every Spring day.
A Spring playlist!!!

And I am going to show you mine in ...
