Hippi loves Jazz

1 year ago, when I start to read the first page of  “The Great Gatsby“, I had such a lot of imagination about Jazz Age.  Until now, the book is still as a source of inspiration to me. 

“… là bức chân dung của “Thời đại Jazz” (Jazz Age), cái tên do chính Fitzgerald đặt cho thời kỳ 1918 – 1929. The Great Gastby nắm bắt vô cùng sâu sắc tinh thần của thế hệ cùng thời ông: những ám ảnh thường trực về thành đạt, tiền bạc, sang trọng, dư dật, hào nhoáng; song đồng thời, là nỗi lo âu trước thói sùng bái vật chất vô độ và sự thiếu vắng đạo đức đang ngày một lên ngôi…”

And I keep wonder always that we never can get out of this circle of  Lust, Luxury and Love. So, we are continue to write a never-ending-story.

Another thing inspired me to do “Hippi loves Jazz” is the song “Little Room” of Norah Jones. Absolutely a beautiful and ideal song for me.

You and me and,
Me and you,
In my little room,
There’s room enough for us to do,
The things we like to do.

Oops, I hit my elbow on the doorknob,
Its right there,
It’s by the bed next to my head,
But I don’t even care.

There’s stars up on the wall,
And they all glow in the dark,
And we can hear the children playing,
Outside in the park.

There’s bars on the window,
And if there were a fire,
We’d burn up for sure,
But that’s just fine by me ’cause,
We would be together ever more.

In this little room,
In the big city we’re so far,
From the people that we knew in,
My big ol’ blue car.

But if we stick together,
Then I know we’ll be ok,
’cause when it gets too cold outside,
This room is where we’ll stay.

Thanks a lot to Linh Muop, Vincent Ha, Thuy Bee, Julynk, Arthur & Yo.
