Let It All Go // Birdy & Rhodes 💕
Alongside my favorite song, read this if you wish:
I’ve been thinking lately, what the hell happened to people? Why does this generation have to be so focused around unimportant things? In this society I feel like it’s almost viewed as a crime to love yourself for who you are. Unrealistic bodies and lifestyles are plastered all around us; we can’t escape the giant billboards with photoshopped models on them or even the instagram accounts that seem like ‘life/body/everything goals’. In the 21st century, the pressure to be perfect is higher than ever before since its so easy to go online and within seconds, find millions of people that seem to be living a perfect ife. Let me tell you something… nobody is perfect. People may seem perfect, but that is never the case; everybody tries to put out something that will make them seem more attractive to the outer world and that’s why we have such unrealistic standards. Even though I wanna write so much more, I cant since I’m almost at the word limit but, I just wanted to say (sitting here with my bare face and hoodie) that even though this may sound cheesy, I am 100% sure that you are not a number, you are not your makeup, you are not your clothes, you are not a skin color and you are not the number of cm around your waist and you are most definitely not the number of followers u have. You are you. And nobody can take that away. Don’t try to constantly change yourself for other people because they will never be satisfied, stay true to yourself no matter what you do. From then onwards, you get to choose how to live your life. You could either: pay attention to all the negativity and consequently suffer with the pain, or you could just say to yourself, ‘f*ck what everyone else thinks’ and love yourself, allowing you to go on with your life happily and free from any sort of negative energy. That’s it from me; the rest is up to you. Chose wisely 🥀 @topvocalist @wowmusicians
Here is a clip with a 1742 Guarneri del Gesu. For tonal comparison purposes with the Del Gesu Plowden clip from couple weeks ago I’m using the same excerpt, Kreisler’s Recitativo and Scherzo Caprice and the same recording equipment... On this take I’m also using a marvelous gold mounted Dominique Peccatte bow. Enjoy!
A little behind the scene video we did with @andie.is.a.lie for her two Punt Sessions that have been released over the last two weeks. She was a pleasure to work with and incredibly talented.
Her two sessions are on our YT channel btw.... if you wanna watch them, we won't stop you 😎😉
I’ve got this song on repeat cause we all have #Issues - right?!?!? ✨ Close your eyes (& ignore the vid quality 😜) just listen to these lyrics from @imjmichaels ...they mean so much to me right now, hope they mean something to you too 🙏🏻 #adomvids#juliamichaels
