metamorphosis

i think i have seriously abandoned this blog.

how long has it been?

i cannot really give reason to my absence from the blogosphere, really. I can only say that once you start to let go, due to stress or too many other things on your mind, you really start to let it slip away for good.

i can’t even remember the last time i posted something here! but:

let a new chapter begin today.

i can’t promise i will post regularly, in fact i can’t even tell you the exact direction this blog will be heading towards.

all i can say is that i’ve chosen to bring this baby back to life and to using it as a valve for my inner life. i can however tell you that the focus here will be shifted a little away from the foodie-world. of course, in case i come up with some seriously delicious recipe i will not keep it from you, but i generally plan on writing about more that tasty vegan food from now on!

same same but different?

here’s a little recap on what has changed in my life:

well well. my fourth semester of Business Consultancy International has just ended and the summer break is on right now. the weather here however is veeeeery not summer-ish. yet. some days its freezing and i’m wearing my boots (!!!), the next day i’m melting in my shorts! heck.

my boyfriend & his family moved right next to my parents’ house! strange, you say? i thought so too. especially since I do NOT live there anymore!

but some time has passed now and I have to admit it’s quite convenient. i have the most important people right there living in the same street!

my mom adopted the cutest little miss doggy a few months ago. her name’s Mindy and she’s more than adorable! a little bundle of fluff, always excited and so much in love with her humans:)

(right now, our haircolors are almost matching!)

Mindy is quite little and very affectionate! she will never miss a chance to hop onto my lap:

about the band: we’ve been playing a good number of shows within the last year but right now we decided to cut back with live shows. we are focusing on recording our first album this summer and there is a lot to be done.

also, we shot our first music video some time ago. it’s currently in post-production cuz i’m gonna be doing stuff in a computer-created phantasy world! (yup, i’m excited. patience is not my strongest trait.)

we also have our own website now! i did some pencil & paper illustrations & hand-wrote the lyrics, so be sure to stop by and check it out here (click on “Lyrics” to see the drawings and words!).

oooh, and did you know about the tattoos I got?

here’s the two little ones, the picture was taken right after getting them done. the X is an ancient, african symbol for freedom, emancipation & independence.

the tiny “V” stands for vegan.

this is the third tat i call my own. i had it done on my 20th birthday. it’s simply a leaf and i cannot tell you what it means exactly. the idea of a leaf simply came to my mind one day in class and so i started drawing. the tattoo artist really did an excellent job here and i still smile every time i see it on my arm!

(strange pic, i know, but just so you see where exactly it is!)

so, that would be some of the news i can offer you.

i’m looking forward to spending more time here writing and excited about finding out about which direction this blog is headed to.

as said, from time to time i’ll just need to get some stuff off my mind and therefore will possibly write about it here.

 

right now, i just came home from a little get together with friends in honor of my best friend. she is leaving for one and a half months, so almost all of summer without her! 😦

she’ll be staying in Canada this time and i can tell you i will miss her a LOT. during regular university times we can’t spend much time together and i miss her a lot already when she’s in the country. so now i’ve been looking forward to spending time with her during the summer break…

she’ll have a blast in Canada, i’m sure of it, and therefore i’m happy for her, of course. but for selfish reasons i’m also sad she’s not with me. sometimes i’m just feeling like a three-year-old.

 

i think i should call it a day for this post, or should i just say “call it a post”? it’s almost 11 PM here and i have an Oh, I Taste The Queen show at 1 AM. yes, i said 1 AM.

this means i need to start making my hair look like a bird’s nest and have quite some face painting to do. these dots aren’t gonna draw themselves!

 

if you’re reading this it makes me happy. so thank you! ♥

i will update the about me page within the next days, too.

 

so long,

s.

Band – update!

hey y’all! 🙂

 

as i promised, i am now writing an entire post about my one and only band: “Oh, I Taste The Queen”!

if you’re interested, go visit us at http://www.facebook.com/ohitastethequeen!

 

i’m just gonna copy  paste what’s written in the “about”-section on our facebook-page, so you get the idea:

 

Oh, I Taste The Queen” was born in march 2011, when Michi&Michi, Nico, Gregor and Saskia bumped into each other in a small rehearsal room in lovely & rocking Vienna.
Soon the 5 of them, each with his/her own musical history with several other bands and projects, found that the chemistry between them was just right, on both the personal and the musical level.

The band made its debut at the “BERGWERK” (Neusiedl) on 17.June 2011 by rocking the stage along with the local bands “Schilfgürtel” and “Gravitation”.
Songs were written at high speed, a gig at the “BORG Wr.Neustadt” school festival in july 2011 followed, and eventually the band made it into the final of the “America Is Waiting”-contest, which is run by the Landesjugendreferat Burgenland and was held at the legendary “Cselley Mühle” (Oslip).

Totally unexpected “Oh, I Taste The Queen” won the contest, which opened up some promising opportunities for the band: 100 copies of the “live-performance at the final, a gig at the “Picture On Festival” (Bildein), a number of other gigs and 5 days in the “Webros” recording studio.

The band all in all is highly motivated to develop, play shows, write more and more songs and, what’s most important: to ENJOY playing music!

What’s one of the most remarkable features of the young band is that there is no “leader” in the common sense, for all the songs are written together. 
“Oh, I Taste The Queen” combines artistically challenging music and “catchy tunes”, by writing songs that are appealing, but far from boring, the members kind of express themselves through their music, which guarantees the songs to be authentic and lively.
