Published

on

Music is often said to be an art of the passionate. A musician must keep on making music dedicatedly. It’s important to hold your calling with honesty and work on it.

 

Ariah Noetzel, a Brooklyn-based musician/Vocalist as well as a songwriter who is back with her new song ‘Get Me Back’ which was released on May 31st this year. She was a semifinalist in the New York Coffee Music Project 2018 and was also press-covered for her song ‘Gold Bottle’, which is available on her website.

 

Objectives 

Ariah’s sole objective of making music is to reach out to listeners who are struggling and empathize via music. She says, “I just love writing songs and singing. I want to share them with the world. When I write something which I’m proud of I get tears of joy and I want to spread that very feeling out in the world.”

 

Musical Journey

Ariah started writing songs when she was in high school. She says, “I was an awkward kid with low self-esteem who found her voice via singing.” Her dad drove her into the city every Monday to play at open mics in the east village to help her get over her stage fright and there she fell in love with performing and started booking some gigs. She continued to play at local venues in NYC throughout her time at NYU and was lucky enough to have the opportunity to record and release an EP in 2016.

 

Struggles & Inspirations

She had her ups and downs, highs and lows, with a 9 to 5 job at the desk, she continues to produce her music. She says, “Since releasing my EP, it seems my luck had run out as I continued to write songs and play shows with very limited money and resources to record my songs. At some point, I had grown defeated, especially during the COVID-19 wave where I was unable to play any show at all, but I was wrong. It’s a feeling – not a goal. When I started playing again it felt like reuniting with my true self. It felt amazing and I won’t give up on it again anytime soon.”

 

Ariah admits putting herself out there wasn’t very easy. She loved layers and collaboration in her music so she always wanted to be a member of a band. “I tried to form several bands but faced difficulties in organizing and maintaining members”, she adds. Her desire to put out her songs eventually led to solo work. She loves the chills of playing, it makes her spirit soar. She loves it when her listeners and audience connect and feel through her music.” She takes her music and aesthetic very seriously, which is the floral vintage visual theme. This theme defines her soul’s message – to keep it light-hearted, fun, silly but personable. She loves encouraging people with her awkwardness on-and-off stage, so often she jokes around with her audience and somehow that pulls off happiness for her too.

Jordan Darian’s 7700 Pennies Floor

Published

on

Jordan Darian posted a TikTok video last Friday, where she is seen gluing her wooden bathroom floor with one-cent copper coins. This video of a woman sticking strenuously gluing the pennies for 16 long hours got viral on the internet when one of her viewers, happen to notice at least one Lincoln cent, which (commonly known as a wheat penny), which depending on its composition and year can be 82,500 USD, and shared it.

 

Jordan’s Life

Jordan Darian is a creative director and co-founder of Humble Flowers, a California-based company that deals in CBD and cannabis-infused skincare products in Humboldt. Jordan and her husband are into renovation as they enjoy the labor of love. In 2018, the couple bought a three-bed and two-bath home in West Hollywood. The couple has been posting the renovation videos ever since. In one of these DIY videos, Darian is seen redesigning her guest bathroom floor all by herself. She glues 7700 pennies to the bathroom floor assiduously with Elmer’s glue and to secure the pennies, she seals the floor with epoxy Resins which overall costs her 400 USD to redesign and renovate the bathroom floor. 

 

Her Inspiration

Darian also shares that the idea of the redesign was an inspiration from her mom, who always talked about a penny floor. “I love fun, decor, and design surprises in a home. When we were in the market buying our first home, I was horrified by all the cookie-cutter, cut-and-paste houses that had so obviously been flipped by someone who was just in it to make money. Very rarely do we come across a home with character and thoughtfulness. I want it to stand out in the market and with unique features like a penny floor bathroom and when we resell our home one day I want it to really wow the new buyers,” she says.

 

The Reason Behind The Video going Viral

When the video went viral with the rare and valuable Lincoln cent story. A website explained, “in 1996 one of these 1943 copper alloy pennies sold for 82,500 USD, and some 40 copper- alloy cents are known to be in existence which makes them very valuable.” However, there is no confirmation of the fact that one of these 1943 copper alloys has been glued to Darian’s floor or not.

 

Darian’s Reaction To It

Darian also admits that initially after the disclosure somewhere she regretted not checking the pennies before permanently adhering them to her floor. She says, “I had no idea a penny could be so valuable and there are at least eight wheat pennies, upside down, so we are unable to check the year. Well, there are surprises and then there are coins that should have been cashed in rather than stuck to the floor.”

 

Although she later shared more DIY tutorials for her viewers, who want to try the DIY flooring for themselves, and information about the exact materials she used to secure the pennies to the floor. She also explains to the queries of viewers over on-screen messages like, “the bathroom must smell like old pennies”, to which she replies that she sealed the pennies with resin and it smells delightful and fresh.
