INTERESTING BLOG OF THE MONTH APRIL 2008
OLD TIME GREATEST STARS
OLD SCHOOL MUSIC LOVER
will you kindly share to us whats your blog all about?
I love oldies music and listen to it all the time. I have a minimal
hour commute to and from work daily so
music soothes my soul during that "defensive driving" time. The music
from the late fifties through the early seventies is what I grew up on
and is, by far, my favorite.
My blog is about all old time stars that ever graced the silverscreen,some of these include stars like "Judy Garland" "Frank Sinatra" and many more.
i know how impressive your concept in your blog was .how this started anyway?
My work life wasn't going as planned and frankly I was quite
depressed about it. I guess I was having the proverbial mid-life career crisis
when I got downsized.
Music was my source of solace: it makes me feel good and brings back
memories of happier times. I put that together with my new blogging hobby
that I was using to self-medicate my depression and "Old School Music
Lover" was born.This came about when I abit younger & started watching some of these old films,I then decided when I got my computer to do a blog on Doris Day, but then deciced this wasn't enough just concentrating on one star so I thought I would do this blog & have a wider choice on all the great old icons out there.
i know that all of your posts was great .do you consider one of them
as your most favorite or the most classical?
No I can't pick any single favorites. My love of the music is very
eclectic in terms of genre as I think you can tell from the songs I haveselected over the course of the past eight months
Doris Day is most deffinetly my most favourite classic icon,although she is not on this blog I have another blog just on her.
what was your target reader?
Anyone and everyone. I particular thought that perhaps the "Boomers"
would like to share their thoughts on this great music and perhaps
turn me onto some music I wasn't familiar with of the era. And more
importantly, I felt that Generation X needed to hear what REAL MUSIC was all
about since the majority of the new popular stuff sucks IMHO.
what was the word "classic" for you? is everything
old are considerable classic
I would consider classic as a perfect and/or early example of a particular style,or an artistic work of lasting worth.
we are now in the modern era¦.and its almost predominated by modern
styles and fashion¦ and mostly all those classic things are
forgotten by the modern generation¦ what can you say about this?How interesting that you should ask that BlueD. I have a second blog in
which I address this issue. I started a companion blog to OSML
entitled "Everything Old Is New Again". That is where I specifically discuss
some of the great classics/oldies from the 20th Century, that are being
recorded again in the 21st Century. When music is good - good artists
will find it and realize it's greatness. Stop by and check it out at
Apart from the nostalgia of looking backwards So many movies these days are technically brilliant but ultimately quite hollow - I think its down to massively movie literate but life-ignorant film makers continually referencing old movies,consciously or unconsciously.Their interpretations of characters and situations are from their knowledge of movies (or other forms of art),not from life itself.One thing so many of the great old film makers had was experience of life.Many became film makers relatively late in life some came from the arts,others had very tough lives before starting to make films
Thank you so much sondan and allison for giving me a chance to interview you and permitting me to introduce your blogs in my INTERESTING BLOG OF THE MONTH APRIL 2008
its an honor to have both of you
"oldies are not bad afterall....they are fantastic....sometimes it is wonderful to turn back those times....and we must remember that those music and movies of the present time willl never be that good without its foundation...without its inspiration and without the pioneers from the past era or generation."
and as amatter of appreciation ...sondan and allison please do take this "excellent site award" from the bottom of my heart
because you sites are certified
this is me BLUEDREAMER...
together with sondan of OLD SCHOOL MUSIC LOVER
and allison of OLD TIME GREATEST STARS
