So Hello…Part 4¬†

Hi,

07/09/2017 ITS MY BIRTHDAY

Unlike my other ‘So Hello‘ posts you, my lovely reader you, are going to know exactly who im writing this letter to because…it’s my birthday who else would I be writing to ūüėĀ 

……………………….……….……………………..

So hello 19 year old me. How are you, hows Malaga…amazing I know 

The fresh air and cloudless skies are all you really need in life but lets get down to business. Youre going to University in under a month and if the holidays taught you anything its that you really need to put all the stresses and strains to one side and just enjoy life whilst you’ve still got one.  


Birthdays are a big deal to you. Not because of the cake and not even the presents but simply because its another marker, another way for the world to tell you you’re getting old and the sooner you accept that, getting older is not a bad thing. And that your life doesn’t end once you get to a certain age I really do believe everything will work out. Granted as I type this I’m layed the worlds comfiest chair right nice to the pool so that could just be chilled me talking. 

Nevertheless, Best wishes and hope to see you again next year. Oh and 

HAPPY BIRTHDAAAAAAAAY.

MusicMonday .6 Review

Hi,
Today im doing something a little different *drum roll please’ its a music review for the band : ‘The Velvet Teen’

If “counting Crows” and “Paramore” had a music baby it would be The Velvet Teen…

The indie rock band from sunny California have vocals that could often put you to a sleep, whether you’re listening¬† to¬† their chilled out song “All is Illusory” or its their upbeat “GTra”¬† They provide the ideal music for travel and road trips. The Trio had been rock underdogs since 2006, until their new¬†fourth album and song¬† ‘All is illusory.’ The album creates a very relaxed atmosphere for any listen, whilsy the song,takes you to another place making people dream of a better and different world. The beautiful¬†vocals of Judah Nagler are blissfully accompanied¬†by the slow paced playing of a piano.

Their songs “eclipses” and “you were the first” takes drumming to the next level, featuring various beats,sounds and riffs it¬† is enough to kick start any private jamming bobbing session. “The giving in” has similar sounds as other popular¬† artists such as “Muse” and with the¬† juxtaposition of Naglers relaxed vocals to the upbeat yet drumming. The overall feel of the album is calming and deep, after hearing “Manifest” it’s safe to say the band is not short of instruments to use in their songs, similarly¬† to their song “sonreo” where again the band showcase their endless talent showcasing vocals,drums and electronics. The 90’s inspired band provide music for the indie, grunge crowd.

Their song “pecos” is a little chaotic and I personally think “Taken over” is a tad too ‘whiny’ and miserable although it suits the band and has its place in the album. Those are the only two songs on the album that I did not replay over eight times, therefore meaning¬† the album as a whole is great for whether you’re feeling down or you just need to escape the world for a while.

Of the album the two songs to definitely look out for are “the giving in”¬† …..and “All is illusory”¬† some say the song is chilling and ghostly due to the frequent echoing, however the chilled feel comes from the lack of any other instruments to act as a distractration to the listener. The lack of other instruments, as well as Naglers calming voice provide an honest feel to the song which is also echoed in the lyrics Nagler sings, for example “your eyes gave you away… to lose track of time with you and I’d run away” Nagler gives a fresh chilled tone and feeling to your stereotypical love songs.

And with lyrics such as, “Like a lock of hair I keep you close to me” what’s not to love?

How Rude‚Ķ Im English

Hi,

So I was casually outside,¬† in town and I heard/saw a woman singing opera songs. Now for Oxford that’s pretty weird. I decided to sit down and film it,¬† well her..in a non creepy way. After about a minute the opera woman started to attract a small crowd and amoung the crowd was a evil middle aged woman. Ok let me explain‚Ķ

Firstly she looked at me evilly for filming the opera singer, even though other people were also filming her.

Secondly check out this conversation between her and I,  she was stood on my right and the wind was blowing from the right, she was smoking:
ME: excuse me,  sorry but could you possibly smoke on the other side,  its just that the winds blowing this way and the smokes blowing into my face.

HER: No I can smoke where I goddam like. *insert more evil looks* you don’t belong in this bloody country anyway,¬† if you don’t like it leave.
Me:…

Guys I’m quite a polite person so naturally I didn’t say anything back to that remark but how can someone in this day and age have the nerve to tell someone else they don’t belong here. I was born in England, London and moved to Oxford at the age of 9‚Ķ I’m probably more British than she is,¬† however as I’m not white she assumes ” I don’t belong in this country (England) ” now I could sort of understand if she were 80 and “set in her ways” not that an 80 year old telling me I don’t belong here would hurt less, but the woman wasn’t,¬† this woman could not have been older than 40.

And thirdly,¬† second hand smoking is just as bad as smoking (I’m not judging people who do) if you are standing next to anyone be it a child,¬† an adult,¬† an elderly person or an alien its common courtesy to move if you are smoking. Its not that hard to do and just shows other people that you are actually capable of caring about your fellow human beings.

Let me know what you think

Expelled

Ok so no I’m fine still in education, but I wanted to be a typical teenaged Magcon loving girl for a post. Just once I promise so I watched EXPELLED, which is a film starring : Cameron Dallas, Andrea Russett and¬†Lia Marie Johnson.

Cameron : plays the main character Felix whom struggles with following the rules,
Andrea¬†:¬†plays Felix’s ex-girlfriend, as they broke up on bad terms she tries to make his life worse however possible
Lia : plays Felix’s newly acquainted friend. They meet after he orders pizza and she delivers it.

I thought it was going to be pretty bad but it turned out to be amazing. The characters are relatable and you end up having sympathy for Felix as well as admiring him for the actions he makes to get him where he wants to be. The film starts off with your every day rebellious teen being kicked out of school (hence the title Expelled) and you follow felix and his friends on their attempt to keep his parents from finding out about the expulsion and from sending him to a strict school far away, where his rebellious/idiotic brother goes. Felix’s brother ben like Felix, had done a lot of bad things when he was Felix’s age and because of that, and creating a fake report card, he was sent to the strict school. The character Ben is funny and reminds me a lot of an early Jim Carrey. When he tries to help his brother Felix out, it often all goes wrong but the film is funny and the relationships between the characters are interesting to watch.

I know many  people would/will love it because it features some well known viners and youtubers. so in summary you should definitely go and watch it and a link will be below of a site you should be able to watch it. The film is one of the first to be produced by awesomenesstv which is a youtube site that enables loads of different youtubers to host challenges and just random bits and bob so AwesomenessTv is another thing you should check out in your spare time.

Theres a trailer further down and heres the link to the actual film, online and free is also below. Enjoy and let me know what you think of it.

Lots Of Love,

So Hello … Part 1

Todays topic in blogging101 is to write to your dream reader and I can’t tell you how much I actually love this idea. I watched a video yesterday and a¬†comment about frogs made me want to write this post instead. So I’m writing a letter to you.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

So hello,

You, yes you hey I’ve actually been waiting for you to drop by, and I was patient and now here you are. So firstly how are you? good I hope. I don’t know you yet and you don’t know me YET but you will. You might have brown hair or blonde hair, oh I have brown hair although you know that, or at least you will. You should know that I’m extremely sarcastic and I constantly have my head in the clouds, I feel like you’ll be the same. You’re smart and you know I’m always right, you know me better than I do, and visa versa. You’ll have little annoying habits like biting your nails or whistling. But I’ll put up with them as long as you put up with my constant singing and the way I strum my guitar when I get annoyed. We’ll spend countless hours¬†having dinner, talking and just passing the time. We both love Chinese food and the supernatural and you’ll want to explore, travel and try new things with me.¬†Your funny, enthusiastic and passionate about a certain things. We love music and go to the cinema at least once a month. You judge me because I drink a lot of herbal tea but I tell you that its much better than coffee. . Although I don’t know who you are or where you are yet, there’s comfort in knowing you are out there. So keep an eye out for a clumsy girl¬†and I’ll see you soon…

P.S¬† Its not like I’ll get jealous or anything, but umm try not to date too many people…

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

So if you haven’t already guessed that was a letter to my future boyfriend/husband, I couldn’t get the idea out of my head for some reason so I just decided to run with it. I hope you find the post both humours and sweet if not then leave a comment saying ” Gooey much?” but in all seriousness I’ll be doing another one of these soon , If you want me to write about a certain subject let me know

See You Soon x,
