Zoolander is the kind of movie where you have to come down your high horse before watching. If you do that, you will be able to get in the mood for this parody of the fashionworld on the turn of the millenium, because it's full of intelligent references of iconic people and events of the industry, and more importantly, it's incredibly funny. Exactly what one wants to watch on a hot summer day, hidden in a cool room.
The third day at Balaton Sound didn't go as planned. It was a sunny and hot day, so we spent it sunbathing until our cousin had an accident with his bike, so we took him to the hospital. He was alright thankfully, hurt his wrist pretty badly, but nothing happened to him that couldn't heal.
Now the ER during a festival is something to see... Beside the usual kind of patients, elderly people and small children, the place was full of German, Belgian, Dutch and French guys, with giant bandages or an infusion attached to them. While we waited, I tried to guess what happened to everyone, and in some cases, I didn't even had to guess, as the security guard was telling some of the patients' stories to his colleagues. There was a guy who was brought in because he was passed-out-drunk for a day, and after lying a few hours in the hospital bed, he demanded to leave, and go back to the concerts. That's how dedicated festival goers are.
Anyways, back to the actual festival: Of course, while we were at the hospital, the weather started to turn bad again, and by the time we arrived at Wiz Khalifa's concert, it was raining.This is part of the reasons why I didn't take any pictures with my camera that night, and only have one phone pic to show you.
Some night just don't go as planned, and some nights I'm a bad blogger, and don't take any pictures I could post on here...:) Part 4 will be even more action packed, and it will be actually about the festival, I promise.
The second day at Balaton Sound was the one I was most excited about, and even the rain couldn't destroy my mood. The party started at 5pm again, this time with Martin Solveig's super fun set. Of course it was raining but we didn't care, a hoodie and a snapback came in handy and saved us from getting completely soaked. He played many genres from edm hits to classic rock, all creating an uplifting atmosphere for the crowd.

This is how you do pink lips and long, blonde hair without looking like a plastic doll. Lara Stone is perfect in front of the camera, whether she's posing for a nude or a beauty editorial.
I got back from Balaton Sound music festival yesterday, and a classic post-festival-sickness allowed me to stay in bed editing pictures, so my annual Balaton Sound recap arrives faster than usual.
We had an awesome time in Zamárdi this year, the great music compensated for the horrible weather. After a short day 0 warm up party, the sun disappeared for day 1, and was replaced with rainclouds.
We didn't care much about the rain though, as Nervo started to play. I was waiting for their set since last year and I wasn't disappointed. They delivered their usual feel-good, girl-power energy, which makes everyone smile, even when being soaked from the rain.
We had to miss Martin Garrix's set in order to change into dry clothes for Alesso, but I didn't really mind. Alesso is one of my favourite djs right now, and I loved his set, despite the fact that it was quite similar to all of his sets from the past few months, particularly to the one from Coachella. Still, one of the best main stage performances was his in my eyes (and ears).
We spent the rest of the night in cover from the rain at the Jager Arena tent, listening to Rudimental, Dillon Francis and Bauer. All of them made a great party, but their music wasn't the most memorable for me.

Dead Poets Society
Dead Poets Society is one of the most uplifting movies ever made, with some of he best written and most relatable characters. It's a story of teenage boys coming of age as the world opens for them after meeting their new english professor John Keating. He inspires them to seize the day, go against the status quo and frees them from the pressure to be excellent they are put under from both the school and their parents.
