And I’m back!!

Hello all!!

Once again, it’s been a while since I wrote, and for that, I apologize.  I know, I know, I’m terrible at updating.  I’ll try to be better, I promise!!

Anyways, so I figured I’d start off with a quick post about a few songs that I’m currently obsessed with listening to. I know it’s not much, but it’s a start, right? And I’ll be back tomorrow with more, I promise!

The first one is “Feel This Moment” by Pitbull, featuring Christina Aguilera.  I absolutely love this song.  It makes me want to close my eyes and take a deep breath and go out and enjoy the night.

The second one is the new 30 Seconds to Mars song, “Up in the Air.”  This song totally makes me dance around my room and sing along.  It’s the first single off their upcoming CD, Love, Lust, Faith, Dreams, which will be released on May 21st.  I’m incredibly excited, as this means they’ll be touring again!!  And i definitely plan to be at their show here when they come, and if possible, at their shows in nearby cities.  They put on what is honestly the best concert I’ve ever been to, and I’ve been to a lot!!

As always, I’m still obsessed with all things Rise Against.  My current favourite song is “This is Letting Go,” which has helped me a lot lately, so I’ve decided to include it here, even though it’s not new.  They have a lot of other great songs, though, so feel free to listen to their other stuff!!

I’ll be back soon to update.  I’ve been writing a lot lately, so I really should make sure some of that writing is done here too!!  I’ve been working on some of my fiction, as well as some of my fan fiction.  And I wrote a poem!!  Well, kinda poem.  I don’t really do poetry, so I’m not sure what counts as one.  Maybe I’ll post it and you guys can tell me what you think??

It’s me again!!

Hello all!!

I know, I know, it’s been so long since I wrote!!  But here I am, hoping you’re still checking out the site.  Hopefully I’ll be able to update more often.  Maybe a few times a week??  Well, I’ll try!!

I don’t really have any reason for why I haven’t updated, but I’m sorry I haven’t.  Real life, you know??  But don’t worry, I’ll do my best to keep the writing a little more regular.

So what’s new, you want to know??  Well, not too much.  Taking some classes, trying to find a writing job, living life.  Computer died (or rather, I killed it) and now I’m working on a Photoshop-free Mac.  Yeah, it’s interesting.

I do have a few posts I plan to do, on things I’ve been watching or places I’ve been to lately (American Horror Story – watch it!!).

But I didn’t want to write and not leave you something to listen to, so I figured I’d leave you the three songs I’m currently obsessed with.

First, Fun.‘s “Some Nights”.  I know, it’s not new, and I’m a little behind.  But I love it!!

Another obsession is Ke$ha‘s newest, “Die Young.”  I’m iffy on Ke$ha.  I love some, I hate some, and I honestly believe if the beat wasn’t catchy, the song would be worthless. Her talk-singing can get annoying at times.  But this one is just too catchy!!  Although I’m iffy on her claims about sex with a ghost.  I mean…really??

And lastly, a song off No Doubt‘s latest album ‘Settle Down,’ called “Looking Hot.”  I’m not sure if they plan to make it a single or not, but it’s so catchy and it just makes me want to dance!!

Okay, apparently it’s supposed to be a single, but the music video was pulled because apparently it was racist.  I’m sure they’ll have another one made in no time.  Sadly, I didn’t get to see the video and I’m too lazy to search for it.  But if someone knows where I can find it, please let me know!!

Anyways, I’ll be back in a bit with an update.  I do need to go on and on about my love of American Horror Story, so I’m sure you’ll see that up soon!!

New Linkin Park!!

YES!!!!

New Linkin Park makes me über happy.

I guess now I’ll just wait for their tour.  I may have heard rumours that it’ll be with Incubus, which their site tells me is happening this summer.  You know, Tinley Park, IL and Cincinnati, OH aren’t too far for me to drive.  It’s gonna be so freaking awesome!!

So here’s their new single from their upcoming CD, “Living Things,” coming out June 26.

I still remember how much I loved “One Step Closer” when it came out way back when I was like 15.  I loved it, and I soon loved everything they touched. Some of my favourite songs were “Breaking the Habit,” “Somewhere I Belong,” and “Pushing Me Away,” and they were also my go-to songs when I was feeling angry, sad, or just like and angst-filled teenager.  “In Pieces” is my all-time favourite song, with “Waiting For The End” a close second.

I’ve seen them live only once, but it was awesome.  Half the band was late (I believe it was for customs reasons), and the two singers, Mike and Chester, did some acoustic songs while they waited for the rest of the band.  I’ve been to shows where bands think it’s okay for them to make you wait 2 hours while they party backstage (I’m looking at you No Doubt!!), but LP, even though they had a legitimate reason, came out to keep us entertained and apologize for the delay.

They played the acoustic set, and then, once the whole band was there, they still did a whole set.  And they were incredible!!

I am so freaking excited for Rock of Ages!!

I’m not sure I can adequately explain my excitement.  I will be there on opening night…and I’ll be ready to sing along!!!

Sadly, I didn’t get to watch this when it was playing here a year or two ago.  I did manage to see We Will rock you and Jersey Boys that same year, though, so I did get my happy fix.  But I’m glad they made this a movie.  This way, I don’t have to miss it!!

Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russel Brand, Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti, Malin Akerman…and 80’s music!!!!!

I may already be playing a few of my favourite 80’s anthems.  SO EXCITED!!!

Music is my life.

So the way I work with music is that while I like a lot of music, and I love a lot of artists, at any given time there are one or two songs that I am more than obsessed with.  I will listen to these songs, on repeat, all day without stopping.  If it comes on the radio, I will listen and sing along.  If it’s on TV, I will do the same.  If I’m at home, I’ll play them.  Or Youtube them if I don’t have them yet.

What I wanted to do is share my current obsessions.  So right now they are Kelly Clarkson‘s “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger)” and Fun‘s “We Are Young” featuring Janelle Monáe.

Check them out.  I think they’re pretty awesome.

Here is Kelly Clarkson:

And here is Fun:

Maybe when the obsession changes, I’ll put up the new ones!!  Enjoy!!
