My ideas were very fluent, I had a clear image of what I wanted to do but I can’t really imagine the practice. I wanted to do something I’ve always wanted to do.
So I thought about making clothes, like a sundress. Maybe even four to symbolise the seasons or an era but then I’d have to worry about cloth, providers of fabrics and models. I wanted to do this because my mum worked in textiles for quite sometime and likes to make her own things. This might have taken a while though. I didn’t have a clear idea of what the dresses would look like, then again who would wear them? I liked this idea but I’d want to perfect them and never get them done!
Well, I also like many different sports. Netball, karate and swimming are my favourite sports. I could do a tutorial of how to evade from opponents in Netball, spar in rings for Karate and show how to do long distance swim in freestyle. These sports have been with me almost my entire life! I currently have some muscle injuries right now, so I couldn’t.
My final idea was making an album of some songs that remind me of old music. I tend to like old music, I don’t know what’s so great about it but it kind of gives me a sense of deja-vu. My dad loves old music and he has loads of memories from songs. It’s kind-of like cold hard nostalgia. Pop music to me is a little bit draining; not saying it’s not groovy but well it has no meaning, just the same sort of beat over and over, with one sided love and partying as topics. I want something for the soul. So I wrote some songs. I really love old music, it’s like poems for the heart. I can sing a little bit, and I have my instruments so I’m fine with this. I really love music and I think I could do it easily.
The songs are inspired by these legends:
Tracy Chapman– Fast Car
Michael Jackson– She’s outta my life
Howard Jones – No one is to blame
Supertramp – The Logical Song
The Beatles – All My Life
Men At Work – Overkill
The Horses – Daryl Braith
U2 – October
Coldplay – Yellow
Cold Chisel – Choir Girl
Elvis Presley – Love Me Tender
Simon & Garfunkel – Sounds Of Silence
