I identify myself as a humanitarian
am chatty and love socialising. I don’t mind learning from people or saying I don’t understand something
I write to recover and keep sane
I’m a still waters run deep’ person
I have mental health issues and I have epic days and shit days.
ON A WHIMSICAL FANTASY
If I could choose to live in any decade, I would live in the 20s in, Paris. I love jazz, I love the bohemian artsy fartsy-ness of that time, the politics, and the Arts movement that brought so many creative, eccentric and bloody brilliant minds together.
I hate war.
I love the culture that grew from such an inauspicious time.
Yes, I love the decadence- ignorance is bliss for a brief moment.
I love the lingo, the dancing, the style, I love all of it.
ON MUSIC, WRITING AND CREATIVE OUTLETS
I have always loved Rap/hip hop. I had to know every word of Snoop Dogs lyrics on his self titled debut album. He promoted himself into a brand with a sexist manner however I love his smooth, humorous and effortless way of rapping that doesn’t come across like he wants to start a war.
It was about the Fedora hats and Pimps – it wasn’t meant to be taken too seriously but everyone has their own interpretation of the music and the culture that grows from a genre of music.
I wish I had been around when disco and hip-hop a emerged in the late 1970’s and 80’s. I love Grandmaster Flash, Mr. Hollywood et al.
I’d love to travel back in time to live in the late 70s chicago Music scene- the birth of house music.
