When people ask me what music I like, I always have a hard time coming up with something. This is not because I don’t like much music but the opposite! I listen to all kinds of music.

I like Rock music a lot but I can also enjoy a good hardstyle song. If a nice dubstep song passes by I will not turn off my radio either. And when I am in a calm mood you can sometimes find me listening to piano or organ music.

When I need to get stuff done I most of the times listen to Rock music. There are a tremendous amount of Rock bands and styles but I will not all list them now.

Like you can see in the title of this post I will tell a bit about Nowadays NL. This band unfortunately stopped making songs together but maybe they will be back in the future.

One of my closest friends is the leader of the band. Together with his friends (and ex-classmates) they made some awesome songs starting in 2013. By rehearsing in a garagebox and performing in bars, clubs and at parties they’ve got what they’ve become.

I don’t really like to say a musician or band sounds like ….band or … artist but if you want to compare.. no.. I wouldn’t say compare.. Let’s just say they are influenced by bands as Kensington, Di-Rect and Coldplay.

I can tell you more about the band but I will just shut up and let you listen!

My Car: Volkswagen Lupo 1.4

Lupo1

When I started working at my current job, I did not want to have to rely on public transport and wanted to be able to get to work save and dry.

My dream car is a BMW and ofcourse I’ve looked at many secondhand BMW’s. But yeah.. they are quite expensive to have.. The price to purchase the car isn’t the issue really. But the costs of insurance, road tax and to keep it running are just way to high for what I earn.

So then I started looking for VW Lupo’s since i liked them to. I found the one I have on the internet and went to the dealer with my dad to try it. After a trial ride and some negotiating I purchased the car and picked it up all nice and ready a few days later.

I like the Lupo because it is a decent little car. It is low in costs for insurance, road tax and maintenance. Also it is very economical with the fuel which is good for the environment and the wallet. There are more cheap, small and handy cars but I like the Lupo since it doesn’t give you the feeling you are driving a little car. The interior is nice and it doesn’t look all cheap and plasticy.

I have the 1.4 liter model which gives quite a lot of power for the car. There are also versions with 1.2 or 1.0 liter engines. Those are more economical but less powerful.
