As the year comes to an end, and before we all (or some of us) go on holidays, I would like to appreciate everyone for keeping this amazing community active with informative discussions/ideas/posts/threads.
I feel deeply honoured to be part of such great learners, and I would like to use this medium to wish you all a Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah/Happy Holidays/Season’s Greetings and a Very Prosperous New Year.
For those of us that are bereaved, please accept my sincere condolences. May peace and comfort find you during this difficult time. Please stay strong because whenever you lose someone you love, you gain an angel you know.
I have done two Christmas cards for you:
I’m sorry I couldn’t make a card with an accompanying music, hope it still made you smile.
What are your favourite musicals and movies by genre? Which do you enjoy/prefer; going to the movies OR seeing the movie in the comfort of your home?
As for me, I enjoy seeing movies on big screens and that's why I prefer going to the movies (especially with friends) to seeing it at home. I’ve seen a couple of movies and I enjoyed them, such as: “What Lies Beneath”, “The Johnsons”, “Resident Evil”, “Merlin”, “Titanic”, “The Parent Trap”, “Tinsel”, “Jurassic Park”, “The Sound Of Music”, “Jenifa’s Diary”, “Everyone Hates Chris”, “The Wedding Party”, “Troy”, “The Wizard Of Oz”, “Robocop”, “Dreamgirls”, etc. I also like documentaries like, National Geographic, History, Nat Geo Wild, Discovery channels and Animal Planet.
Among movies, my favourites are cartoons namely: Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Cinderella, Flushed Away, Frozen, Ice Age, Incredibles, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar, Moana, Mulan, Pocahontas, Rango, Ratatouille, Rio, Shrek, The Lion King, Zootopia, …, …, …, the list is endless. I love cartoons… the accompanying melodies never fail to fascinate me.
In addition to this, Music is the language of my soul, and I feed my soul with it every single day. From pop, blues, R&B, instrumental, gospel, acapella, traditional, highlife (hi-life), makossa, afrobeat, afro-pop, country, classical, soul music, rock, reggae, etc. I really love listening to anything melodious but the genre of music I listen to depends on my mood. Music changes my mood; I could switch moods by mere listening to it. In fact, Music is my companion… I breath music!
What about you? What keeps you going? I would love to hear from you.
