Hello, and welcome to Modern Day Goldilocks!
(A cat picture, to make you smile! Meeeoooowww.)
Thank you for joining me for the big reveal of my long-time-coming blog. Given my hectic schedule and all of the changes that I've been going through in my life, I decided that there is no better time than the present to get MDG off of the ground. With that said, what better way to get to know me than through noting my music tastes? For those of you that don't know me personally, music is a fundamental part of who I am. I'm friends with a lot of musicians, I used to maintain a music blog, I've been going to concerts since I was five.
I'm a devout lover of Schopenhauer's philosophy in that music exudes a feeling, and when the feeling is recognized by the listener, the listener in a sense emotionally & spiritually connects with not only the artist who created it, but the members of the Earth as a whole. It is because of music that we are able to unite as one force; we are able to latch on to something deeper, to reinforce our existence as individuals living on this precious planet.
In honor of the unveiling of MDG and my never-ending love of muzak, I've decided to compose a Summer playlist for your listening pleasure. Living in Charleston, S.C., I generally cling on to chillwave vibes & dream pop melodies, but I've also been on a 60s French music kick as of late.
