Music Nook: They Move on Tracks of Never Ending Lights by This will Destroy You

jUJvBOur nature is replete with music. It is even said that the notes of music have been picked up from the various notes in nature. The music is one which makes us realize that life is moving on.

Every object in nature, if observed has its own rhythm, the whistling of the wind, rustling of petals, humming of insects/bees, gushing of water, butterflies, crickets, everything in nature is never silent, that is why silence is compared with death, every living thing has a sound of its own, even the heart beat has its own, and it is very dear to us as it makes us feel that we are alive.

If we keep away from nature then we lose on the rhythm in our life and our life becomes monotonous. We can feel the music even in the lesser significant events of our lives. Every heart that feels the rhythm in every thing can make its own existence meaningful and worthwhile. The sound of nature makes us realize that life is deathly without music in it.


And now I really hope you like this music that I’m sharing with you. I always loved it and it is my all time favorite. It’s called “They Move on Tracks of Never Ending Lights” by This will Destroy You. I hope you enjoy it.

Have a good day!

Music Nook: Don’t Stay Here by Frames

I just got back from a walk. I know it’s late, clock is striking quarter past 12 but few minutes back I was listening to this old music piece and I literally feel liberated every time I listen to this music. And that other feeling you get when you are outside all alone in the night and when you start contemplating about stuff added with some really good music in the background. Well, I love that feeling, I feel most alive. So I thought I should share this.

This is also one of my favorite and I hope you will like it as well.

My Rating: *5 Stars*

Yes! Giving it 5 Stars.

Okay I don’t know if you read my review of Storm and Silence #1 or not. But let me tell you, I loved that book. I couldn’t put that book down, it kept me hooked up till the end. And yes the end did make me sad. Because I wanted to know, “What happens next?”.

Ya, that book left me wanting more. I’m totally in love with these two characters, Mr Ambrose and Lillian. Oh how much I adore them.

So when I started reading this book and continued with their story, it happened again. I fell in love with this book as well. Yes, I got the answer to my first question, “What happens next?”. But again this book left me wanting more. I’m kinda addicted. I seriously can’t wait to read more of this series.

I really liked the writing. The writing was very well done and the details were taken care of.

I just want more out of this story with a really good conclusion, and I’m eagerly waiting for the next installment!

Characters were real good, story was just amazing, writing was awesome and the book was full humor and sarcasm. Now what else do we need?

What is it in this book? Well, I would say, a whole lot of action, a little bit of romance and some really good adventure.

I loved “In the Eye of the Storm”.

I don’t know what else other people need. But I surely need another installment. There I said it!

“I feel that life is divided into the horrible and the miserable. That’s the two categories. The horrible are like, I don’t know, terminal cases, you know, and blind people, crippled. I don’t know how they get through life. It’s amazing to me. And the miserable is everyone else. So you should be thankful that you’re miserable, because that’s very lucky, to be miserable.”

Book Review : Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk

“If I could wake up in a different place, at a different time, could I wake up as a different person?”

5759

My Rating: *4.5 Carpe Diem Stars*

You don’t know who I’m(ya, ya some of you do know me), but let me tell you. I’m a crazy piece of shit who added this book in her TBR list in 2012 and read it in 2016. Yes, this book, I read it after all these years! Thanks to someone who forced me to read it. It was amazingly amazing(ya I watched the movie as well, ahh!).

First rule of fight club: You don’t talk about Fight Club.

Second rule of fight club: You don’t talk about Fight Club.

But I’m gonna talk about it because how can I not talk about it!

Fight Club, a story like this can go no where but to extremes. Chuck in this book merely exposes the pros and cons of two extremes. The narrator who is powerless in his life, that is shown by his constant consumerism, a character who is literally split, an insomniac who dreams up Tyler who is the opposite of him.

brad-pitt-edward-norton-fight-club

On one hand the narrator is boring, materialistic, work for his secure life while on the other hand Tyler is a confidant person and a radical thinker but also an extremist, an anarchist.

According to Tyler’s philosophy: “It’s only after we have lost everything that we are free to do anything.”

“You are not your job, you’re not how much money you have in the bank. You are not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet. You are not your fucking khakis. You are all singing, all dancing crap of the world.”

This book showcase the destructive nature of letting  any of those two sides taking control over your life. You have to find a middle ground to the blinding materialism and minimalist life.

For me, Tyler is a flawed character, if you’ll watch the movie, you’ll see my point. He is a hypocritic who bashes consumerism while lightning a cigarette.

images

The element of consumerism is there, yes and it is apparent through out the book. However, I also believe it is incorporated with the idea that objects should not be hold as an account of identity and self worth. But it is your actions and thoughts that define you as a person, they end up owning you because they tell who you really are.

Is masculinity still in a state of crisis? Like really Chuck do men really have to beat the shit out of each other to feel complete, to get out of their anxieties, aggression and frustrations.

The fight scenes that the writer wrote fucked my mind out and then they were wonderfully done in the movie, which made it difficult for me to take a sip from my coffee.

“Fight Club is not football on television. You aren’t watching a bunch of men you don’t know halfway around the world beating on each other live by satellite with a two-minute delay, commercials pitching beer every ten minutes, and a pause now for station identification. After you’ve been to fight club, watching football on television is watching pornography when you could be having great sex.”

This book punched me straight on my face and the writer is brutal, real brutal.However, I must say this is that one instance where movie adaption is far better than the book and I loved it. I have got my new favorite.

Whatever be your interpretation about this book or the movie. I’ll say at least this book/movie, “Fight Club” is just straight entertaining.

So, if you already haven’t read it yet then please give it a read.

Before ending I want to quote a very pessimistic statement given by the writer *sigh*

“We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.”

And haha! this-

“Warning: If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don’t you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can’t think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all that claim it? Do you read everything you’re supposed to read? Do you think every thing you’re supposed to think? Buy what you’re told to want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you’re alive. If you don’t claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned.”
