“Here’s some advice. Stay alive.” -Haymitch Abernathy
With an advice like that, I, for one was fascinated, and along with that, burst into laughter. Haymitch is one of those characters who, when introduced seem to get in everyone’s way, are impotent and never capable of anything but messing up. But there was some aura around Haymitch, that he DID indeed win the Second Quarter Quell. This aura makes one think that sure he can be drunk or mess up, but that dude had SOMETHING in him, that made him win such a competition once. Guess what? He did, after all.
Woody Harrelson sure loves his alcohol
WELCOMEE! Today is the first ever post in the series of ‘Musical Thursdays’ (I got late, this week). I’ll be posting every Thursdays (hopefully :P) on different moods/genres of songs, with about at least 10-15 songs that I find awesome. Since this is the first session I just posted, with my respective power as the author, on the topic of my choice (BWAGHAHHA, SUCK IT! :D), but at the end I’d leave a choice of 3 to choose from and the ones who vote for the most, gets selected and posted the next Thursday. So please give feedback, like, share, comment and see if your choice gets selected!
btw: watch the videos at your own discretion. Some may contain mature content. If hesitant then just youtube the lyric video version for them.
1) Hall and Oates – You Make My Dreams
The numbering isn’t in any order of preference, it’s just to let you guys know (as well as, myself) how many songs I posted here so I don’t overdo them 😛 So I’d start by this song by Hall and Oates, though a very old song, which was made famous thanks to the (read: Bestest) romance-comedy movie called~~~~ 500 Days Of Summer! I recommend both this song, and the movie.
And Lennon couldn't have nailed it in harder.
“Everybody loves you when you’re six foot in the ground.”
I don’t need to introduce him, do I? You probably know him as ‘The kid with the hair who sang “Baby”‘. But for those of you who don’t know him, Justin Bieber is Canadian singer who was discovered on YouTube by Scooter Braun, who is currently his manager. He became well-known because of his first single “One Time” from his debut album My World, and it wasn’t long after his career blew up after the release of another single, “Baby”. Since then, he’s known as one of the biggest celebrities and has been nominated (and won) for several awards.
I started liking him back in 2009 when I saw him on my tv screen in the grey hoodie singing “Aye, aye, aye”, and i’ve been supporting him since.
One comes across numerous people claiming to be ‘music lovers’ or ‘hardcore music fans’. But once you ask them which songs they listen to, their reply is always (or 90% of the time) that they like Pitbull, Katy Perry and a bunch of other people who usually make it to the charts. But… are they actually ‘good’?
Personally, I think Pitbull is crap. Similarly, Ms. Perry, Taio Cruz, Enrique Iglesias and all the other drunk singers are worthless. True music lovers know that the good music doesn’t always make it to the charts, with a few exceptions of course (e.g: Rolling in the Deep – Adele).
So, let me give you a lesson a music.
(Note: Anime and cartoons are two completely different things.)
Anime. Japanese animation, basically. You’d expect this to have an influence only in Japan, but that is not the case. Rather, anime has captured the interest of people all over the world. Or at least those people who give anime a chance to display it’s amazing aspects. I began watching anime about two years ago. At that time, however, I was not greatly captured by it, as my mind was too immature to comprehend the deep stories. Hence, I only managed to watch one anime: Death Note.
Unfortunately, I did not watch any other anime after that for a whole year. Then, I decided to give it another chance. I was 13 then and had just entered the brutal teenage life, hence anime proved to be a great distraction (along with other things). It was then that I realized that I had watched anime even as a kid. Remember those ‘cartoons’ on Cartoon Network? Pokemon? Digimon? Beyblade? Dragon Ball Z? Yeah, those were anime. And, admit it, you loved them. Continue Reading
Meh, another boring post I composed for my English assessment, thought I’d just post it here.. Here goes nothing.
Alan held it in his hands. That necklace. His fingers felt every part of it, the green emeralds neatly embedded in the slits of what were the eyes of a swan, the wings clasped together. The twenty-four karat golden swan represented freedom, yet bondage. Represented love. A tear streamed out of Alan’s sea-green eyes and fell on the necklace, mixing with the blood on it.
