Ghost in the Machine?

Something that has me quite excited and slightly terrified is projected images of artists at concerts. I think the first time I ever saw something like it was during the 2006 GRAMMY Awards when Gorillaz and Madonna performed together. Images of the Gorillaz and Madonna were projected onstage to make it look like they were…

Worshiping Lorde

First of, I want to start by wishing everyone a very Happy New Year. I know I haven’t blogged in a long time, and I admit I have been feeling rather uninspired. Couple that with exams and an endless mountain of assignments, you have a very lazy blogger! But I want to post really quick…

You Wrecked Me

I know there’s a lot of shit going around about Miley Cyrus, and I am no innocent bystander in the process of throwing piles of hot, steaming slander at her through the years. I’m not going to talk about her evolution or ‘devolution’ as many prefer to term it, because frankly it’s been discussed too…

Why Did The Romance Have To End?

I think My Chemical Romance has been one of the greatest bands of our time and will continue to be so. Their raw energy and angst has fueled every teenage dream that I’ve had and spurred me on to try harder to be better, faster, stronger and more emotional about things that really matter. They…

Why JT Got it Right

So this is going to be a really quick post since I have exams this week, but even though I have to face that demon I knew I had to take some time out to talk about Justin Timberlake’s new music video for ‘Mirrors’, his second single of his new album The 20/20 Experience. The…

Stay in My Heart

I don’t think any song in 2013 so far has impressed me as much as ‘Stay’ from Rihanna’s new album Unapologetic. It brings out a whole different side of Rihanna that we rarely get to see, and the emotions portrayed are raw and powerful. The power of love is expressed in an entirely different manner,…

I Live in Paradise City

For my 50th post on MHB, I’d like to discuss something really personal and close to my heart. I think there are some moments in life that truly define you as a person. Whether it’s winning an award for a fantastic accomplishment or having a baby or receiving your first paycheck, they all mark points…

Meeting Sean Paul and Seeing Enrique

So October/November have so far been very interesting months for me so far. The most fantastic thing about living in Bangalore are the number of international artists who love coming here to give concerts. Bangalore is known as one of the most happening cities in India in terms of music and art and I have…

Bad Girls

Posting nowadays has become a once in a while occurrence. Unfortunately I have moved into my college’s hostel which is making it extremely difficult to blog thanks to all the internet restrictions. Don’t worry though, I shall find a way to blog more often, and be back on track soon enough. This is going to…

Only Love

I love those songs that make life seem suddenly calmer and slower paced, songs that just chase away your fears and pain, if only for 4 minutes. These kind of songs really make me feel clear-headed and calm and give me a fresh perspective on the things going on around me. Sometimes I just feel…

Lana Del ‘Replay’

So it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything and I apologize because these past few weeks I’ve been travelling, and let me tell you guys, the best thing about Europe is the street musicians. In most towns and cities I have visited in Europe in my life, there is always a place designated for…
