The biggest earthquake I've ever lived through happened tonight at 8:04 pm.
And I didn't even feel it.
I've you've been living under a stone for the past few hours, it was a 5.6 earthquake that happened just near Alum Rock and was felt all around the Bay Area, California.
Except, of course, exactly where I was standing.
Almost everyone else felt it or heard it.
I saw the podium shake.
I saw the gong and lights moving.
Unfortunately, I felt nothing.
and that, my friends, sucks.

forever yours, November on

Bonjour, nouvelle musique !

I don't speak French, nor do I put on a convincing French accent.
I had to use babel fish to learn how to say "hello, new music!" in French.
I have, however, discovered the joys of French Pop music and the New French Scene (Nouvelle Scène Francaise).
Female artists such as Olivia Ruiz, Camille, Pauline Croze, and Jeanne Cherhal have been tagged as New French Scene artists, as well as Les Ogres de Barback and La Rue Ketanou.

My personal favorite thus far is Pauline Croze.
As well as having very catchy melodies and fun songs, she's a very pretty girl with lots of talent.
She has been playing guitar and singing since she was 14 years old and has a accomplished a lot since then.
My favorite song by her is called "M'en Voulez-vouz ?" You can watch a live video of her peforming it HERE.

Another one of my favorites is Olivia Ruiz. My aunt first introduced me to her music a few months ago, and I really liked her. In addition to singing in French, she also sings in English and Portuguese. Her music video for La Femme Chocolat is tre tre fun and colorful. Click on the link to watch it.

French is such a pretty language, and the music is simply wonderful. Keep your ears open for a song by the Eudaemonics called "J'aime petit garcons", as we are working on it. Coming soon!

forever yours, November on

P.S. I haven't posted anything lately partly because I've been really busy, and partly because nobody reads this anyways. If you do read these, I'd really really like a comment or two on my posts. They make me feel like people do care. Thank you <3
