Music

Let’s think about listening: today, post something about music.

Ready to roll? All you need to do is…

  • Write a new post on your iBlog in response to the prompt.

Need more ideas? Not sure what to write around Music? We’re here to help:

  • What is your favorite type of music? Classical? Rap? R&B? The Blues? Rock and roll? Indie? Drum and Base? House? Alternative? Country? Folk? Somewhere in the folds of two or more of those genres? Something else altogether? How does this favorite type of music speak to you? Why do you love it?
  • If you could be any musician in the world, who would you be and why?
  • What listening format was popular when you started listening to music? Record albums? 8-track tapes? Cassettes? CDs? Streaming Services? Which record/tape/cd did you wear out because you loved it so much?
  • Take a photo or a screenshot of your favorite album and post it to your blog.
  • Have you composed any music? Share it! Bonus points for telling us a little bit about your composition’s origin story. What inspired you?
  • Seen any music live? What about the performance moved you?
  • Which songs would you put on an epic mixtape?

Distance

Whether your brain thinks in feet, meters, leagues, or lightyears, today let’s think about distance.

Ready to roll? All you need to do is…

  • Write a new post on your iblog in response to the prompt.

Need more ideas? Not sure what to write around Distance? We’re here to help:

  • During this time of physical (and/or social) distancing, what’s the thing you miss the most about being in close proximity to others?
  • What’s the farthest you’ve ever traveled from your hometown, region, or country? Share one thing that you learned in that faraway (for you) place.
  • Distance doesn’t have to be spatial — it can be temporal as well. Write about a period in your life that now feels as if it took place in a different galaxy.
  • Share a photo that stretches far into the horizon, or go to your window and snap a photo that includes the farthest object or structure you can see.
  • Write a story, poem, or imagined dialogue featuring you and a person you were once very close to, but who is now a distant presence in your life.
