Weekend Vibes

This is just a post to celebrate the weekend. I haven't done a fun post in ages and I don't really know why. Here are a whole couple of things that I found on-line that made me smile or inspired me.
Enjoy the weekend!

Coloures and textures to make me drule
Love how airy and interesting this living room is.

Ben Howard - Old Pine

Can't get enough of this song, so I thought I'd share it. 
After a rough / awesome weekend at Rocking the Daisies this is just about all I need for this Monday.

The Piano

I went to the coldplay concert last night in Cape Town stadium.
I have always loved Coldplay but my expectations weren't too high, I was actually more excited about the whole experience of attending the show with my friends and having a good time.

I was very impressed though the atmosphere was great!  Just wish they could have given The Parlotones a skip.

But the one thing that made my night was Chris Martin and that piano of his. What a cool piece of art.
It really made me regret the fact that I had to cell my piano to buy a mac while I was still studying. 

Steve Jobs

Today is one of those days in history. A day where we have to stop for a moment and reflect.
Steve Jobs is one of those guys who literally wrote history. All I can say is thank you, my thoughts are with your friends and family. Rest in Peace.

Steve Jobs
1955 – 2011
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride … all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
—Steve Jobs, commencement address at Stanford, 2005

The only people for me are the mad ones,
the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved,
desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or
say a commonplace thing,
but burn, burn, burn,
like fabulous yellow roman candles
exploding like spiders across the stars
and in the middle you see the
blue centerlight pop and
everybody goes “Awww!”

—Jack Kerouac, On The Road, 1957
