People turn to Instagram instantly when they have captured something that is worth-sharing to friends and other people around the globe. Sometimes, even the tinniest things like a strand of a shiny grey hair, or dirt in a shoe is Instagram-ed because those pictures, for some people, hold a special story behind their being flimsy. And with the addition of age-old, sepia’s worth of filters, the results become cooler, and even more memorable.

Get Into The Groove With JAZZ: Trump’s Journey

Jazz music was founded during the 1700s in the city of New Orleans. Since its birth, other distinct jazz styles have emerged. Although it was made out of a collision between two cultures— African and American, the issue of social stratification and racial identity was hardly ever addressed in early jazz history. Back then, music that predated jazz was primarily for entertaining small groups of black slaves to alleviate them from the adversities of oppression by the white men. However, by the time jazz hit New York City, it was then being played, recorded, and listened to by both the blacks and whites. Ever since then it spanned so many cultures, allowing fervent racism to further breed within its rapid growth. It was during 1930s, the rise of technology and consumer culture, that allowed the world to take heed to blatant racism and urged people to take a stance to defend the black jazz musicians.

But the history of jazz wouldn’t be complete without the contributions of Louis Armstrong, cornet and trumpet player, singer, and recognized as one of the most— if not the most— influential person in the jazz genre of music. Despite being an African-American, with his black skin, his music transcended race and gender boundaries. He was the first man to bring jazz music to the forefront outside of New Orleans and to the other parts of the globe. He popularized and codified the well-known jazz swing rhythm that is now considered as a standard characteristic of jazz. He also broadened the jazz solo vocabulary. He was— without a doubt— the much-imitated innovator of early jazz. All right, enough of its history.

At present, did you know that there’s actually an app inspired by Louis Armstrong?

Read the app review below and take a step back in time to relive the birth of jazz.

App Review: Picture Me Something

We love making fun of our friends’ photos in Facebook. We all go through the absurdity of tagging our unaware friends their pictures which show them being crazy, or not in their best Vogue-ish poses. As much as we love making fun of things, and ridiculous stuff about our bffs’ own business, we still keep in mind that some things need to be done with caution and maybe, a little guessing game. Sometimes, we even tag them things that will remind them how inane they are because we want to make them laugh. That’s just the coolest thing about life. We can make fun of things with the people who know us more than we know ourselves. The joy of having to share stuff with friends are just priceless, and endlessly satisfying.

Panoramic Views With Magic Window – Living Pictures

What I long for is to have a serene glass-house in the country side where I can spend the rest of my sunset years in this world. To wake up basking in natural light as the sun prickles my skin, to gaze at the night sky religiously and smile as they sprinkle my eyes with their glittering lights, and to hear nature’s sounds as they lull me to sleep—chimes tinkling at the brush of the gentle wind, the ocean waves crashing on the shore, and the constant calling out of the fireflies. Oh how I would love nature to swallow all my frailty as I return the soft embrace of tranquility and oh how I wish to fulfill my dream of growing old and happy while looking out a window full of lush beauty and overwhelming calmness.

As I still have a number of years to fill before my skin starts to wrinkle and my hair loses color, I resort to traveling and taking photographs of scenic places. Whenever time permits me, I snatch a couple of minutes just breathing the air of that specific place that contains so much grace as if every inhale is a proof that I am indeed there. A photograph captures so much but in times when I feel like I need a spiritual boost, looking straight into the sunset keeps my mood at bay. The hustle and bustle of city living had made me resort to an application to balance my inner peace. Watch the shifting of the clouds with me as I tell you all about the .
