I saw this a while back and thought it was an interesting conversation/topic to discuss.
Eaten by the heart is a video installation and documentary project produced and directed by Nigerian film-maker and video artist, Zina Saro-Wiwa, that explores love intimacy amongst Africans and the current shift in the expression and performance of love.
I thought for my first blog back I would update "my favourite things" list. I'ts been a while and I have alot to share with you all.
Iman Omari and his EP Energy.
This multitalented musician has been described as a blend of Flying Lotus and Frank Ocean - I understand the comparisons but I would'nt be so fast to catorgrise his musical gift. Omari borrows from the past and adds soulful, mellow and futuristic elements that leaves you hitting the repeat button ALOT. I also recommend checking out his new album, (Vibe)rations.
At the beginning of the year I decided I was finally going to learn how to mix. For years I've secretly wanted to take up the challenge but I always hesitated - mainly because I thought I would'nt be taken seriously. Anyway, I started practising and I'm far from perfect but I am improving (or so I've been told!). Hmm...who knows I may make a Darling mixtape!
I know. Late pass. I've had an account for years but I never really utilised it. Now I use it for finding new music, uploading recordings of my new radio show (we'll talk more about that later) and networking with like-minded music heads. So hit me up on the link above if there's anything you think I should be listening to or should feature on my show!
Hi. My name is Lavinia and I'm a sweet and salty popcorn addict.
I don't even remember who introduced me to this crack corn, but may they live a long prosperous life. I've tried various brands and my favourite's thus far have to be Tyrells, Propercorn and Tesco's (yes, Tesco). If you know any other brands I should try let me know.
P.S. If any of those brands would like to send me free samples hit me up on Twitter :)
I've started running again and I'm loving it! Ooh I've started making smoothies and juicing.
