Good times

"Stick with your friends' has proven to be a valuable advice for many in their filmmaking career. For filmmakers around the world, it’s never been a better time to join forces: teaming up with the right people to inspire and support you remains an essential element of improving your work. Developing one’s personal craftsmanship on the one hand, and to benefit from other people’s fortes on the other is the true sense of collaborative filmmaking. It’s about finding the most exalting people to work with, daring to ask the vital questions in order to exceed your own limits, and having the greatest time of your life when making film."

(the words film and filmmaking can be replaced with any verb that means something to you).

Songs are as sad as the listener.

It is very late
and I am still 'studying'
There are beautiful lyrics coming out of my speakers
sang by Leonard Cohen himself:

Like a bird on the wire,
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.

Rogier Roeters

Suddenly, there it was

the unstoppable feeling
of laying in the grass
your hands on your head
and no shoes on your feet
I just felt the desperate need
of Popsicles and drinking wine
in the sun with friends and feeling o so fine
running and playing guitar in the sun
no-one remembered what the occasion was
a birthday, a sunny afternoon
we didn't need a reason
to stay
in the grass
with our wine
on our tiptoes
feeling the sun burning on my shoulders
surrounded by people who I love
and some I did not yet know
o please sweet summer come and make us feel
forever young

(Rosa in Paris by Vrederick)

Grow some big feet, holes in history
Is where you’ll find me, is where you’ll find
All is love, is love, is love, is love

So she went back home

I'm writing songs again! I think I found two people who I totally connect with, on all sorts of levels. Tuesday we went jamming at this loft full of old organs and 60s amps. We enjoyed ourselves for hours..and I really think that this could be my next band! Ofcourse I have met more wonderful people past weeks, but I had to make a decision and I think I made mine.

I will post some songs up as soon as possible.

Also my new school term starts in two weeks. I am totally prepared this time, trying to really make the best out of it. I am meeting up with old friends again and supporting my boyfriend who has an incredible photo exhibition in Groningen this weekend at Eurosonic. Here are some examples of his photography:

Ofcourse, we all buy Cd's

and records. And we never download albums, no we do not. Because we musicians understand how hard it is, the music world of 2010.

Well to be honest I don't have enough money for anything so I am just sharing the best soundtrack of the moment by giving you this link. (yes I am not clever on these things, I just give you the link. I don't know how to give you the tracks straight away)

The soundtrack of Where the Wild things are
Karen O and the kids make me so happy. Especially the cover of Daniel Johnston's Worried shoes. I haven't seen the movie because its not released here yet..but as soon as it will, I will run to the cinema. Yes that is what I am going to do.

I love stories that show you how much we 'adults' take ourselves too seriously. I am not a grownup yet and not planning to be that for a long while.

which usually turns out in writing songs. I wrote three new songs recently. They were all quite sad for some reason. Although they make me happy in a strange way. I wrote them on my own, for myself and I hope for my new band as well.

Studying means also stumbling through the Net looking for great artists.

“In the magical universe there are no coincidences and there are no accidents. Nothing happens unless someone wills it to happen.”

I forgot who this is from and where I read it. I wrote it down in my sketchbook a while ago. I could'nt have said it better myself.

Yes, the third new years eve on my favorite rooftop was another succes. Great bands, music, people, fireworks, and too much champagne. And while I'm at my parents place at the moment, recovering in pyama's, I am looking back at last night through pictures of my Willem Vrederick.

And then I had to leave because I looked (and acted) like a ghost.

It was the best party. the best night. 2010 is going to be a good one..I can feel it.
