Music on Sunday; Oscar night

It's time for the Oscar's again and although they're not airing it here unfortunately (again) only the highlight, I always hoping to catch a glimpse of it.
So for today's Music blog, let's listen to some epic film scores whether they've won an Oscar or not ; the right music is what makes or brakes a film; enjoy.

Since this film was up for an award last year (with my favourite actor in it) this one must go first; I adore the music from Alexandre Desplat.

Aw, one of my favourite films ever has won back in 1971 an Oscar for original song score and adaptation;

My son said to me recently; 'some people do something with their lives, mum, instead of sitting home all the time'. I know he didn't mean it like it sounded, but it made me think. Do I mind this live I have chosen for myself? Sometimes I do, sometimes I did wish I could do more, go out more, travel more. But... and there is the big and ugly but... I just can't. For most people it is unimaginable the life hub and I lead, staying in so much, not going out and do stuff. But most of the time it's just a question of money. I really would love to travel more, see more, do more. Plus I'm not so comfortable anymore around people.

But I'm also disappointing myself; I'm not writing as much as I want anymore; I'm not studying enough. I'm not listening to my body, in short; I'm sitting in my comfortable bubble at home locking myself in it. I feel like my gran, only she had a mild case of autism in hindsight. She didn't go out anymore in the last ye…

Music on Sunday; War & Peace

The last weeks on Sundays we have enjoyed the beautiful adaption of BBC's War and Peace. The music that goes with it is often what makes or breaks a series or film. The BBC knows better than no other how to do that. So for this Sunday I hope you will enjoy the Russian atmosphere as much as I did all those weeks added with some of Russia's greatest composers; Enjoy.

Music on Sunday; Die Neue Deutsche Welle

Sometimes you hear things on the radio that immediately bring you back. This week it was my favourite morning DJ who was talking about the 80s and the 'Neue Deutsche Welle'. That would be my theme for this Sunday I thought; I'm not sure if I already did this one, not really care too... it's a great one to hear again; so enjoy!

This is really one of my favourites; it sounds like one of the first games we played on tv (pong) and the way those guys did the vid... And they say Germans don't have humour!

Getting worried over 'nothing'...

Ever since I can remember I tend to worry or get anxious over things no matter how small or big. They may not be big, they get bigger inside my brain. I've tried to ignore it or get over it but it won't go away. I've tried to give the things to worry over into the hands of others meaning my parents when I was a teen or my partner when I was married, that proved only that I never learned to deal with it myself. I learned to lock things away and ignore it like a good little ostrich normally does. I tried writing about things to relieve myself of the burden of worrying; that helped a bit; I was working on it at least. But as things go when you don't keep on working on it and start slacking the anxiety returns.

I sometimes worry about the tiniest of things. Which with my history of tiny epileptic seizures isn't the wisest thing to do. Stress can provoke those tiny seizures after all. Just last night when I woke up my mind automatically wonders to the things I was worr…
