Book Review: The True Lives of My Chemical Romance

Today marks 6 years since my favourite band broke up, and it both feels like yesterday and a lifetime ago, and I feel very old that I was 16 at the time and now I'm nearly 23! I felt a good way to pay tribute to them would be to review the biography by Tom… Continue reading Book Review: The True Lives of My Chemical Romance

Those who have been reading for awhile will know my favourite genre of music is rock, and that I sometimes talk about movies here. Sometimes the lines between these two gets blurred, and you end up with these stellar films: Bohemian Rhapsody Bohemian Rhapsody is the most recent release on this list. The biopic tells… Continue reading Top Five Rock Musical Movies

What I Thought of Bohemian Rhapsody

I originally didn't think I was going to review Bohemian Rhapsody but once I saw it I knew I just had to. Bohemian Rhapsody tells of the life of Freddie Mercury, formerly known as Farrokh Bulsara, and the rise of Queen. The film followed a simple straight-forward narrative so Queen fan or not it's easy… Continue reading What I Thought of Bohemian Rhapsody

Girls who rock

I saw a post recently about a bar that supposedly banned female fronted bands because "girls can't sing rock music" and it infuriated me. As a girl who likes rock music, my whole life has been spent being told that it's a boys scene, and when I was in bands, being the "female bassist" was… Continue reading Girls who rock

Review: MCRX

I haven't been reviewing books lately because I decided to re-read the whole Harry Potter series. I write about Harry Potter so much that reviewing the series seems pointless, but I did finally get to tick "Find Out my Patronus" off my Bucket List thanks to Pottermore. Mine is a ginger cat, (so basically Crookshanks?),… Continue reading Review: MCRX

Bucket List: Busking

I've wanted to go busking for a very long time now but never had the guts to do it. The people I see busking in town always seem to have a good time and it's nice to hear music on the streets. Yesterday I finally did it. I spent the past 2 weeks or so… Continue reading Bucket List: Busking

Review: Kurt Cobain Montage of Heck

I've seen a lot of documentaries about Nirvana, I can't even remember what most of them were called but since Montage of Heck came out I've been meaning to watch it and finally got around to doing so. Kurt Cobain is notoriously portrayed as a tortured soul; this sensitive, despondent heroin addict who beneath his rock star… Continue reading Review: Kurt Cobain Montage of Heck

Bucket List: Music

There are a lot of bands I want to see live, but there are also a few musical places I want to see too. Hopefully there will come a day when I can say I've been to all these! These are musical things to do before I die: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland,… Continue reading Bucket List: Music

You have a time turner, what do you do?

If I was given a Time Turner from Harry Potter, and could use it for anything I know exactly what I'd do. When asked what I would do with the ability to time travel my mind automatically goes to music and all the artists I would see. Sure, there are things more beneficial to mankind one… Continue reading You have a time turner, what do you do?

Gig review: Kerrang! Tour

Last night I found myself in The Academy, Dublin for the first night of the Kerrang! Tour 2016. For someone who once had dreams of being a music journalist (now... not sure where I'll end up) it's a shame that my blog didn't have a music section, until now. The first support act, Biters, had… Continue reading Gig review: Kerrang! Tour
