a matter of objectivity and respect

i have just spotted online the poster for coachella festival with the very impressive and i-wish-i-were-there lineup. however, i really got frustrated by the emphasis and the highlighted priority (or not) the festival organizers gave to some bands instead of some others. i really don't give a damn what fashion bloggers -who actually support this festival- consider to be the band/artist of the year but seriously, by no means does this mean that you are allowed to:
1. list the black keys (whom I really like) over pulp and the rapture
2. list bon iver and noel gallagher (no...I really don't like...) over kasabian (seriously??), godspeed you! black emperor, flying lotus, buzzcocks and black lips

and on the one hand you could say that, ok, pulp were on top during the 90s and the rapture in the 00s but this argument doesn't fit here, since we got 3 90s stars for headliners (radiohead and dr.dre-snoop dogg)!

noone can convince me that tune-yards is less promising than bon iver (for god's sake!!!!!!!)
it's not just a matter of personal preference. it is not fair for all these artists. festivals all over the world, no matter their poppularity (i have seen similar situations also in local greek festivals) should stop treating the artists as if they were just products with popularity rates that their only purpose is to bring bloggers to the arena and money to their pockets. all musicians are equal no matter their temporal popularity. repect the artists and please, stop putting them in highlighted lists!

last, but not least, cheers for keep shelly in athens for being in this festival! great success for greek music scene!

sorry for nagging...........

p.s.  i would loooooove to be in this fest...next year, that i will be rich!


from garden to garden

from the Dom's garden to a small secret botanic garden and then to our inside garden with some stops for lunch, interesting shadows and awesome cycling outfit

today is the second day after my birthday

no, not my birthday. today is two days after aris' birthday. blowing candles in the kitchen next to a pot with lentils, opening one present after another and throwing papers on the floor! that's what we call a party! I wish you grow up like the highest mountains!



ok...seriously...besides the fact that this gentlepug is so elegant and woofcute -a real siiiir as a matter of fact- I really can't believe that there is an eyewear shop only for dogs. there you have my bow warby barker. now, where's my cup of teeeeeea?

blooming marionette

string gardens by fedor van der valk. what an amazing idea! I love how the plants seem to swing in the space. next stop, pompon in amsterdam!
