Discovering Shinedown

I am quite grateful for the rekindled wonder for music.  I’ve always known that I won’t like pop music, but lately, I’ve been surrounding myself with anything and everything I can consume.

It’s quite exhilarating really, but I know soon enough I’ll go back to my roots.  For now, I’m enjoying the scouring for new things that I haven’t listened to — for a while or ever — and that’s how I chanced upon Shinedown.

Actually, I’ve been obsessed with Ed Sheeran lately, but more on that later.

I saw this Warner Studio series on YouTube recently and this tattooed vocalist immediately caught my attention.  They remind me of Creed and Staind; I’m this close to calling them a hybrid of both.

But hey, I am yet to look into their body of work first before I say anything further.

Anyway, this is the song that made me extra curious about them.

Do you have any suggested Shinedown performances that I should listen to?  Comment away!


Long week

It’s been a pretty long week and mainly, my frustrations stem from the fact that everything is shifting to high priority.

By everything, I mean everything.  Work, Dylan, school, family — every bit is calling my attention and I can no longer turn a deaf ear.

Actually, I can.  HAHAHA.  It’s a skill, the refined art of procrastination.  I’ll give you tips some other time.

But really, I’ll have to prepare for my upcoming midterms so for now, I’m leaving you with a song.  It’s been playing over and over in my head for so many days now, and I want to kick my ass for not having this on my playlist.

And he told me that I’d done alright
And kissed me till the morning light, the morning light
And he kissed me till the morning light

I am looking forward to be Perk’d.

I read this book early this year and it has rekindled my love for young adult stories.  I know I seem to old for it, but I don’t really give a flying F.

Marga repeatedly told me that it was depressing, but for some reason, I found it comforting.  Maybe because it’s a good indication that I’m just among the many troubled minds out there, and just like them, I too seek clarity.

Here’s the official trailer of The Perks of Being a Wallflower:

And this being an Emma Watson post-Potter flick is just a plus.

Tell me you’re excited too! :)

Coolest Cover Ever!

I know I said that Linkin Park’s Rolling In The Deep cover is the coolest thing ever.  But then music is constantly evolving, so are the people constantly bathing themselves with it.  I love Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know, and I was completely blown away by this cover.

(I actually thought that Pentatonix was amazing, but then, I stand corrected.  87 million views!  Come on!)


I am completely left in awe.  That girl has to be the hottest ever.  Wow.  WOW.

Closing jaw now.

The 25/25 Challenge

Okay, so I was an epic failure at the photography challenge (I stopped somewhere between Day 18 and 19), so how about we give this one a try?  Care to join me?

So Day 1 is A Song From Your Childhood.  That’s easy enough.  I was born at the time when music was at its best. :)  But yeah, this is the first song that came to my mind:

I remember being so all out for the Spice Girls and the Backstreet Boys that I wanted them to get together and make plenty of babies that’ll be pretty and shiny and musical!  Hahahaha.

Ah, those were the days. :)
