Down The Rabbit Hole on film

Well, hello there! It’s been a hot minute since I wrote anything other than social media updates for my internship at Cineville or my master thesis and to be honest, I really really missed it. I’ve been wanting to sit down behind my computer and let all the words naturally flow from my fingers unto the…

My 2017 Spotify Wrapped

Music is an important part of my life. Even though I have absolutely no musical talent, I am a very frequent listener, enjoyer and reviewer of music. I’m always playing music when I’m at home and when I’m commuting towards my university. My earbuds are practically permanently attached to my iPhone and it gives me…

My Christmas Playlist

Pfft… 24 articles in a month, that’s a lot, eh? It definitely requires some serious planning and a lot of time writing, but this blog wouldn’t be called Almost Famous Writer if it wasn’t rooted in a deep love for writing. And besides snacks, I always find music to be the best motivational help when writing. …

My 5 Favourite Podcasts

Every once in a while I stumble upon a new obsession. In the past, these included endless re-runs of Riverdale, crocheting Christmas present all day every day, or listening to the latest Oscar & The Wolf album on repeat.

Music Menu // July 2017

Settling into a new house and a new city can be quite a challenge – cleaning up those last boxes with stuff, making sure the house is ready before your grandparents come to visit, then keeping the house clean, et cetera.

Beauty Essentials // Music Festivals 2017

After a very busy, but incredibly fun, birthday and graduation week, it’s time to come back to the real world and take a look at my calendar. There, marked with some classic glitter tape, popped up another event for next weekend: Best Kept Secret! The music festival slightly creeped up on me, which now results…

Daughter – “Not To Disappear” (2016) // Album Review

In 2013, Daughter released one of the most honest and beautiful break-up albums of the year, titled If You Leave. The band, whose sound is a dreamy combination of folk and electronics, has become quite the underground name, with tracks such as “Youth” and “Smother”. Daughter’s debut album dealt with heavily emotional themes, such as losing…

Adele – “25” (2015) // Album Review

Four years after “21”, Adele released her highly anticipated third studio album, traditionally titled “25”. Perhaps as expected, the album completely broke the Internet. Hours after the release of the album’s first single “Hello”, parodies, memes and word jokes appeared – with Ellen Degeneres’ spoof of both Adele’s and Lionel Ritchie’s “Hello” combined with Drake…

Placebo // “MTV Unplugged (Live)” (2015)

Last Friday, I spent the evening at my parents’ house. I came home from tutoring and my Mom pointed at the television screen: Placebo – MTV Unplugged. The new album that my Mom and I had been listening on Youtube for the past couple of weeks, was broadcasted on MTV! I hurried to the couch,…
