Having access to a great selection of music is something I take rather seriously. I’m not someone who regularly listens to the radio; in fact, 90 per cent of the music I listen to comes from my phone, the songs being ones I’ve chosen and downloaded myself. I’ve gotten kind of bored with iTunes, and … More Is Spotify Premium worth the money?
On Sunday evening, my mom and I ventured to Toronto to see Queen with Adam Lambert at the Scotiabank Arena. I had been looking forward to this concert since we purchased the tickets before Christmas, and rest assured I was anything but disappointed. My mom and I actually had tickets to see these guys two … More Queen + Adam Lambert: a show of a lifetime
It’s rather apparent within my blog posts that I am a huge fan of classic rock music. I often say I was born into the wrong generation as I firmly believe rock music throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s is the pinnacle of the genre and likely won’t be matched, let alone topped anytime soon. … More Profile: Guns N’ Roses
I mentioned a while ago that I’ve taken it upon myself to learn how to play the acoustic guitar. Learning anything unfamiliar is challenging, but musical instruments are in a league of their own, in my opinion. I had never so much as plucked a string on a guitar before my boyfriend got me a … More My tips for learning guitar
Back in December, I created a post describing some of my favourite tunes and the reasoning as to why they’re my favourite. All of us have songs that are near and dear to our hearts, and it’s interesting to learn why certain songs resonate deeper with us than others. Since my previous post listed only … More The power of song: part two
On Thursday evening, my mom, dad and I saw a Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) cover band, presented by the Classic Albums Live Series. The concert was at the Sanderson Centre in Brantford, and the three of us attended the show with a few of my parents’ friends. Classic Albums Live “takes classic albums and recreates … More Classic Albums Live Series: Creedence Clearwater Revival
Winter can be a tough time of year for a lot of us. The weather is cold and dreary, many of us are confined to the indoors, and there isn’t a whole lot to look at outside in terms of greenery. My mom was telling me that she was recently speaking with a nurse practitioner … More Feeling the winter blues?
A few days ago, while listening to the song The Sound of Silence by Simon & Garfunkel, it sort of struck me just how damn incredible the lyrics of this song are. Sure, I’ve probably listened to it more times than I can count over the course of my life, but for whatever reason, this … More Appreciating lyrical poetry
I have been fascinated by guitars, specifically electric, for quite some time now. The sound a guitar produces amazes me, and so, for Christmas, my boyfriend was kind enough to get me an acoustic guitar so I can learn to play it myself. Taking lessons from an instructor when first learning an instrument is arguably … More Learning guitar (well, trying to)
I would bet money that a majority of people on this planet have a select few favourite sons that they can hear time and time again without growing tired of them. Perhaps the song reminds them of their childhood. Maybe it sparks memories of young love. Or, it could just have a rockin’ beat that … More The power of song
I have been a serious Queen fan since the eighth grade. For a school project, my classmates and I were asked to do a presentation on someone in the music industry, and I decided to do mine on Queen. I’ve been hooked ever since. A couple of weeks ago, my mom and I went to … More An appreciation for Queen
One of my Public Relations courses for this semester is Event Planning, a large component affiliated with Public Relations. We recently learned about the main components of Event Planning, and I thought I would reference my notes to share this beneficial information. I credit these notes to my professor, Carly Root, and Niagara College. Event … More The Top Components of Event Planning
On Sunday evening my roommates and I came together to view the 2018 Grammys awards show in Madison Square Garden, New York City. I had never watched an entire Grammys award show prior to this occasion, and despite the ceremony being rather long (7:30-11 p.m.), I actually genuinely enjoyed it. The ceremony was packed with … More The 2018 Grammy’s
