it suddenly dawned on me that we actually need two parents in life. One parent has to be that cold hearted one just like every goal in life..telling u what u have to achieve, what u should be like..but every time u come close..it somehow just knocks u the fuck down! and just like that theres another level.
While the other one is that warm fuzzy conscience always telling u that u can do it and somehow is just logically correct..even when its wrong! that f’in warm push.
Its not necessary which parent is which or if they are together..just that two parents are a….necessity. Atleast thats what I think.
Coming from a muslim background, I come across alot of scolars who deemed music as “haram” because it distracts you and what not. I agree but to the point of demeaning lyrics where all they sing or tell you to do is smack that “bitches” booty or getting high or that pile of money or this pile of money etc I mean Chris Rock sums it better! (sket skeet ;)) but the time I dont agree is when music portrays a tone or an emotion.
Inspite of the language barrier it still tries to communicate with you. All great musicians say the same thing over and over again “music is a universal language” and finally I witnessed it. Pakistan’s Coke Studio does these amazing fusion between different genres that,most of the time, are quite successful. BUT day before yesterday was perhaps the first when I truely agreed that music is a universal language. I went and saw an opera! in German!
I had no idea what the story was about except for the brief summary of each plot written on a pamphlet and yet by the end of it I understood everything!
The opera was about one of Goethe’s dramatic poem Faust. Hector Berlioz a french composer in 1846 composed a musical masterpiece on Goethe’s poem and this was a reenactment of the masterpiece. The stage the performance the effects everything was just amazing!
I truely loved the experience! cant wait to watch one in English!
Thank you Germany! Thank you Stuttgart!
