Today’s Quote – Musical Freedom

Kurt Cobain Punk is musical freedom. It's saying, doing and playing what you want. In Webster's terms, 'nirvana' means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that's pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock.

My Favourite Bands Lego-ized

legobeastieboys

This awesome project comes from the brilliant mind of Adly Syairi Ramly – go follow him on Twitter!

He’s created these for many, many bands, but find below a collection of the bands I love most from this project, made via little lego pieces. It’s always inspiring to see people find new creative ways to show their love for music (and nostalgic toys).

I’m hoping he will make versions of Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Fleetwood Mac, Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene.

If these were for sale in stores, I’d buy them.

Today’s Quote – Second Class Citizens

STEVIE NICKS

We felt like, together, we were a force of nature. And we made a pact, probably in our first rehearsal, that we would never accept being treated as second-class citizens in the music business. That when we walked into a room we would be so fantastic and so strong and so smart that none of the uber-rockstar group of men would look through us.

And they never did.

Today’s Quote – Ideal Beauty

BethDitto

I feel sorry for people who’ve had skinny privilege and then have it taken away from them.

I have had a lifetime to adjust to seeing how people treat women who aren’t their idea of beautiful and therefore aren’t their idea of useful, and I had to find ways to become useful to myself.

Today’s Quote – The Only Good Reason To Make Anything Creative

sineadoconnor

None of us got into music because we wanted to be famous. We had crap we wanted to get off our chest and we had stuff we wanted to say.

The only reason somebody should ever make a record is because they’re gonna go crazy if they don’t.
