Three Songs That Deserve A Lot More Recognition

Usually, the most popular songs off albums tend to be the songs that were released as singles, or songs that are soon made into music videos. You probably won’t see a song that wasn’t given promotion end up topping charts. That’s not likely at all. For example, Maroon 5’s “Sugar,” released off their album, (2014), became a huge hit only after the release of their music video. As a major fan, I already knew of “Sugar” long before it hit the charts. So, because of this, there are clearly many songs out there without enough recognition. I’m gonna give y’all three songs that are just amazing.

Ed Sheeran, (2014): “Afire Love”

Ah, this song. My favorite number one song of all time. Continue reading

Why Everyone Should Make Their Own Videos

With Presidents’ Day last week,  I made videos with my friends. At first, I thought it was going to be a disaster and we weren’t going to get anything done. I was half-right. I don’t know how, but three videos took around six hours to finish… Well, we weren’t doing much for a couple hours. But the thing is, I actually had fun doing work. You heard me right.

                   Fun. While. Working.

How cool is that? Now I don’t like working, but that day when I saw everyone’s videos, it was a fun weekday.

Should we do more for Presidents' Day?

Monday ReMIX #6

One of my favorite movie theme songs is the 007 Theme and I remembered seeing some suggested videos about photos of the upcoming James Bond film, Spectre. Plus Skyfall is on my Fave Movies list 😉 . So in celebration of my James Bond love, here’s a unique remix about the British spy himself

Credits go to Kurt Hugo Schneider and all those helping out with the video.

I Prefer to Listen to Japanese Music While Working

I’m a man of all different types of music. Pop, hip-hop, rap, R&B, soul, and occasionally even country. You name it. And as a budding otaku, I am also into calmer modern Japanese music (not classical, that’s probably the one genre—I can’t even—). So I find myself listening to anime OPs and EDs and various other J-music while working, whether it’d be homework or paperwork or among other stuff. But why?

Japanese music is not only actual quality music, but I also usually don’t understand a single word of it. And how is that in any way good?

It’s common to hear that listening to music with lyrics while doing another assignment is not efficient because the assignment that you’re doing will likely have words as well, meaning that the probability of you taking in that info while listening to that song wouldn’t be very high. Although, that is when you listen to a song with lyrics you understand. Japanese music, however, has lyrics that I can not understand, so then it basically becomes a part of the instrumental to me.

Everyone’s entitled to a “writer’s block” post. —But this isn’t it.

Every time. Every time I begin to write a blog post. Each and every single time, I have to first stop and ponder to myself, “Will I have something to write about today? What if today’s the day I pull my get-out-of-jail-free card? Will I use the writer’s block post today? Dang it, I’m hungry aga—”

Something along those lines.

Food…

So then, I finally got around to thinking about this “writer’s blog post”, or WBP. (It’s harder than you think to make a funny anagram.) How many times can we use this type of post? Of course people are going to get bored of it, annoyed, enraged, hulkified, murderous, arsony, and mad— but from time to time, is it alright to have a writer’s block post? The most easy thing to do, of course, is to delay writing any post until you get a really awesome idea. I’m all about awesome ideas, but I rarely find myself writing them down, because work. ew.
