I'm a super shy live music & travel photographer. I post snippets of my daily life and other mundane things. Out of all the crap I blab about, I think you can trust my opinion on music the most. Read more. Sometimes, I blog with a few more words here.

Posts tagged with “questions”

I occasionally get travel-related questions in my inbox which I am always happy to answer in private. However, I’d like to do a longer post compiling everything for Restless Cities. Got anything you’d like to know? Ask me and my writer HERE!

Anonymous asked: can you recommend some good movies? thanks!

- Doubt (2009)
- The Loneliest Planet (2011) if you can sit through it. It’s a real test of your patience.  I don’t love it, but it has its merits.

I am no longer renewing it! My blog can be accessed through rozettediaz.com/blog from now on. :)

Check here and here to see what kind of books I like. I’m pretty much open to anything right now though.

Anonymous asked: What is/are your favourite love song/s?

I have way too many, but here are some:

  • "A Case Of You" by Joni Mitchell 
  • "Painting By Chagall" by The Weepies
  • "Thrown Right At Me" by The Tallest Man On Earth
  • "Come Away With Me" by Norah Jones
  • "How Can I Tell You" by Cat Stevens
  • "Lost In You" by Lior
  • "I Can’t Seem To Make You Mine" by The Clientele
  • "I Belong In Your Arms" by Chairlift
  • "Invisible" by Wild Beasts
  • "The Book of Love" by The Magnetic Fields
  • "Love Is No Big Truth" by Kings of Convenience

When I’m in a bad mood, I love listening to “God Help The Girl” by God Help The Girl or “You Must Be Out Of Your Mind” by The Magnetic Fields

I could honestly make a playlist just full of love songs because I am a sap. Email me if you want more.

Or have you had to in the past? What are your “survival” tips for those who aren’t brave enough to do it yet?

smrnylnr asked: Hi, Zet. How did you find Like Crazy? (this is related to that anon question where you said that this film ruined you :D)

It was just super depressing, you know? They went through so much for something only to realize in the end that they didn’t want it anymore. Whywhywhy?!

It was heartbreaking and it gave me incredibly heavy boots. I’m still a bit haunted by that shower scene in the end.

It’s based on the director’s life though with his first wife. They’re both stupid. They could’ve had a happy marriage if it weren’t for that stupid slip in the beginning.

oswwy asked: Hello ate Zet, umm, I was just wondering if you know any cool birthday songs? thanks! (:

"Birthday" by Quietdrive, "Happy Birthday" by Ryan Adams, "Unhappy Birthday" by The Smiths (this one’s just funny), "Birthday" by The Bird and the Bee, "Birthday Pony" by Fugazi, and last but NOT least… "Happy Birthday" by Sufjan Stevens. :)

EDIT: As pointed out by Marvin, I forgot to add the best one of all, “Birthday Sex” by Jeremih HAHA

Anonymous asked: What are the top ten songs you love to listen to when you're on a plane?

Sometimes, songs that are related to the place I’m going to like “Los Angeles, I’m Yours” by The Decemberists back in 2008 (it was my first visit). Sometimes, songs that help me get to sleep. It’s hard to list down just ten songs since it usually depends on my mood really.

I’ve made three travel mixes here: 1. I Won’t Be Found, 2. Departures, 3. All The Places We’ll Go To. Enjoy!

alimurray asked: You seem so talented. It makes me sick and depressed with jealousy.

Oh, Ali, I wish. Keyword is seem. Tumblr makes it easy to highlight a (very small) percentage of who you are. There are hundreds of things I wish I could do, but can’t. Be this and that, etc etc… So many things!

(Side note: You living in Scotland makes me jealous.)
