Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.

Great combination:
The strong & edgy look of Arizona Muse.
And the girly & eccentric look of Daphne Groeneveld.

Not all those who wander are lost

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king

By JRR Tolkien (Lord of the Rings)

Larry Graham concert

Last friday I was listening to Radio6 (great radio station with lots of soul, jazz and r&b music) while I was learning and they pronounced a contest. You could win two tickets for Larry Graham's concert in Tivoli next november. I guess you've never heard of this man, who's bloody brilliant actually.

Larry Graham was the bass guitarist of the funk and soul band Sly & the Family Stone from '66 to '72. Nowadays he's performing solo or as the lead singer of the band Graham Central Station (yes, after Grand Central Station in New York). Larry Graham is known for his fabulous technique on the bass, it's called plumming. He invented it. I saw Larry Graham and his band at North Sea last year, where he gave a very good concert.

Anyway, the contest was filling a gap in a song of Sly & the Family Stone. The song is called 'Everyday people' and the line was like this: 'Cause I aaaaaaaam everyday ...'. It was a really easy question, so I mailed the answer immediately. Five minutes later I was called by Radio6 and they wanted me in the show! So the host of the morning show, Jaap, asked me a few questions and after answering the question again I had won two tickets for Larry Graham!

I'm really looking forward to a concert again (especially since last time was Lowlands and that is more than two months ago and I am a real concert junkie) and can't wait to see Larry Graham again!

500th post!

I actually planned to make a wonderful, amazing, fantastic (yes, you'll probably know what I mean) message full of inspiration of this 500th post but unfortunately, I have to spend this week studying... Anyway, I'll make it up to you guys next week, in my vacation, when I have some pretty nice things planned!

I want to dedicate this post to a man that will be able to inspire you as well (in my opinion): Marvin Gaye. My favourite soul singer, who gives us a little bit of a summer feeling by this wonderful song. So, here's to the next 500th posts (:
