Russian Red

Let me tell you about one of my new discoveries: Russian Red

Russian Red is a female singer-songwriter called Lourdes Hernandez. This 22-year-old student is stylish, beautiful ánd talented. She comes from Madrid but wisely chose to sing her songs in English, so more people can relate to them. She has a wonderful voice that is capable of making unique thrills. Her songs are accompanied by the sound of her delicate guitar playing. The instrumentation is on all most every song minimal, but that adds to the soft and honest feeling the songs have.

She just launched her first album, called 'I love your glasses' and I think it's a great succes. You might have to get used to her voice, which is very unique, but I'm sure that after that you'll notice that this girl has got a great future in music. She's at the moment only known in Spain, but I think that by the end of this year, her music has spread through the rest of Europe.

And I like to contribute to that;) So, you should all go and listen Russian Red!

Here is a video of one of her best songs, 'Cigarettes' (she had no official music videos yet so this is just someone's recording) :

Flash mob!

"A flash mob is a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual action for a brief time, then quickly disperse"
is what wikipedia says about flash mob.
This 'unusual action' can vary from sudden pillow fights, freezing, falling asleep or whatever crazy thing you can think of.
I don't know if you've ever heard of it, but I think you should. It's fun to do and fun to watch!
I found this fantastic japanese flash mob yesterday ;) :

Not so long ago, someone started a flash mob troup in the Netherlands called 'Shoqs'. I took part in their first flash mob, which was inspired on a flash mob called 'frozen grand central' of the new york flash mob group called 'improv everywhere'. With a group of about 300 people we stood frozen for 5 minutes at the central station in Utrecht. It was so much fun, because while I was standing there (and having a hard time trying to not blink my eyes to much), I heard people saying things like 'what's going on?' and 'this is so cool'. Well, you just have to look at these 2 videos. The first one is the one in New York and the second is the one in Utrecht (I'm not in this video, but if you watch some other videos you can see me standing in my purple skinny)

You should all join me in the next shoqs flash mob!

Here are some interesting photographs by the photographer Wendy Bevan.
I love the nostalgic feeling and strange atmospheres she creates by using polaroid and lomographic cameras. Aren't they just stunning?

I know, it’s a bit late, but I haven’t got the time yet to tell you about Patrick Watson :D
So now I thought, girl, what’s more important, spreading the word that Patrick Watson is the most awesome guy in the world, or learning for my Dutch test.
The choice was easily made.
Well, here’s the story:
It was a normal Monday evening. Everyone was sitting at home in front of the tv or knitting or whatever. But four friends, and a couple of Czech people who happened to be at the right place and the right time, were lucky enough to spend this evening way better than any other person in the city.
A train arrived. It was the train that went to Den Haag. People stepped in to go home, to have a dinner with a friend or just because they liked trains. But the four friends and the 2 Czech people were on a mission. They arrived in Den Haag and started walking. No one knew where they went. They walked miles and miles until they saw a building with a big ‘P’. “this must be it”, one of them said. They stepped in, put of their coats and walked the stairs. When one of them opened the door, it made a creaking sound. In the room, there were a couple of people standing in groups. No one seemed to bother the fact that the four friends and the 2 Czech people came into the room. They waited, while one of them was getting some sort of gold yellow liquid.
A band started to play. A couple of people turned their head to the stage, while others thought about the meaning of life. It began to get more crowded in the room. They were there for only one thing, just like the four friends and the 2 Czech people, which was about to start any minute. People got quiet, and suddenly, there he was:

It was supppperaaweesomme:D:D
It was a whole spectacle including singing saws, electric toothbrushes and good good music!!

I’ve made some pictures, but they are not so good, because I could only take a crappy camera with me.

It's such a lovely photo, isn't it:D

Mr Watson himself, producing one of his 'soon's.

guitar player
an amazing horn player and the same guitarist.

btw I also made this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLDVnbxriYc with that crappy camera, it's a part of the song 'Man under the sea' which was so lovely. He went into the public and made them sing along.

o, one thing:
listen to his music:)

Jazzzzzz in Woerden

Saturday I went to a festival called Jazz in Woerden with some friends. I knew that Wouter Hamel and New Cool Collective would come, so I had to go.
Wouter Hamel was really cool, and he has awesome hair;)
At the end he invited us on stage, and we sang some lines along with him, it was fun!
But I was actually more excited about the New Cool Collective, who would play after Wouter Hamel. But when he was finished, it suddenly began to rain very hard and there was thunder right above us. And then I heard that the main stage was struck by lightning and the church also and we had to look for a shelter, but it was actually very funny;)
But it’s a pity New Cool Collective couldn’t play. But it was nice anyways.
Wouter Hamel and band:
