I am a lover of natural light and photography is an ongoing and consuming passion.
Frank Ocean - Thinkin Bout You
After what he revealed to the world, this song means so much more to me now because I’m able to relate to this song in its truest sense. To know that we’re the same age, and we experienced the pangs of heartache from a boy also at the same age really connected me to him and his music. Opening up about something very personal like unrequited love, let alone his sexuality, speaks a lot about his courage and bravery. And because of that, I am more empowered and proud to be who I really am. I finally have someone my age, and someone who’s like me, to look up to. I have nothing but respect and love for his fearlessness and amazing talent. He is my hero.
James Blake - A Case of You
A Case of You by Joni Mitchell is definitely one of my favorite songs of all time, from her album Blue, which also my favorite album of all time. This amazing song has been done countless times by artists like Tori Amos, Michelle Branch, K.D. Lang, and even by The Decemberists and Prince. So far, my favorite cover of this song was done by Diana Krall from her Live at Paris album. Now that this James Blake cover exists, this is definitely my new favorite out of the bunch. Joni would be so proud of this.
Lykke Li - Love Out of Lust
I’d rather die in your arms than die lonesome
I’d rather die high than die hollow…
We will live longer than I will
We will be better than I was
Adele - Don’t You Remember
I know I have a fickle heart and bitterness,
And a wandering eye, and a heaviness in my head.
But don’t you remember, don’t you remember?
The reason you loved me before.
Death Cab For Cutie - The New Year
So this is the New Year and I have no resolutions
For self assigned penance
For problems with easy solutions
Rosi Golan - Hazy (feat. William Fitzsimmons)
What if I fall and hurt myself?
Would you know how to fix me
What if I went and lost myself?
Would you know where to find me
Up Dharma Down - Tadhana
Hindi pa ba sapat ang sakit at lahat
Na hinding hindi ko ipararanas sayo
Joni Mitchell - A Case of You
Oh you’re in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you darling
And I would still be on my feet
