30 Seconds to Mars – Hurricane

 

Whoa, I didn’t expect that they actually had a video for this song!

One of my fave in their album. It’s so.. epic, as expected from their music.

What made this song one of my favorites, not only in their album but in my entire imaginary playlist of my life is because it has too much emotion.

It has too much emotion to the point where I no longer know how the speaker in the song actually feels.

There are parts in the lyrcs wherein he seems angry; on some times, he’s in love; on times, hurt.

Probably that’s the reason why the song’s entitled HURRICANE.

 

but then again, if you would take a look at the lyrics. you can see VAMPIRE written all over it. or maybe it is just me and all the vampire hype going around.

 

// just watched the video. all i got to say is that I AM WILLING TO DO ANYTHING FOR JARED TO TIE ME UP THAT WAY.

10. Jon Gosselin

You once had eight reasons to care about the guy – or at least give intermittent glance to the People covers he was on – seeing as the Korean-American’s super sperm had gotten a white woman to pop eight young ‘uns out. After splitting from his wife, dropping out of their reality show, and increasingly exposing his bald spot and delusions of grandeur (he claimed he was going to start a fashion label with Ed Hardty’s Christian Audigier), Gosselin now seems a goner in culture.

 

9. Anne Curtis’ chest

Its moment went by fast enough to leave us nippy.

8. Heidi Montag

There was that moment, after readng a blogged news but about Ms. Motag, of astonishment folowed by a wave of amusement. Whether it was her way-up-there bravado for releasing a trash-tastic music video for her single Higher or the lows of her excessive plastic surgery, Heidi never seemed to hide from the spotlight. Until now, it seems.

7. Krista Ranillo

Supposedly the only knockout able to knock our nation’s golden boy out, if not scatter a little dirt onto his good name. After she’d ditched scandal to get hitchd in the US, trading sexy shoots for law school lectures as well, she’s given us the chance to think and talk about other affairs than, well, that one.

6. The furor against Hayden Kho

And we all thought Hayden Kho was never gonna dance again. Everything seems to be coming up roses for Kho given that the court has dismissed the case against him and especially with the sweet smell of the eponymous collection of scents he’s peddling. With a Belo breakup and Bong Revilla’s anger still burning, what’s wafting from Kho’s hairy ass is eau de relevance.

5. Lady Gagita

Looks like the Fame monster ate this one up and spat him out. Apart from a few bar appearances here and there and a performance at Mr. Gay World Philippines, the gimmickry seems to have been drained out of Gagita so that even an outfit made out of longganiza might not get our viral attention back. But more importantly, where is Haroncé?

 

4. The PCOS Machine

Voted off of the island of cool ’till next election.

3. The mistresses of Tiger Woods

Because we’ve had enough of Tiger the Swinger, we want Tiger with his magic swing back.

2. The Facebook Poke’

Seriously, when was the last time “poked” anyone, let alone “Superpoked”?

1. Jeje-anything

After such a dark and incomprehensible period in language and culture, we’re once again pushing for peace and understanding.

30 Seconds to Mars – Closer to the Edge

 

There is defintinely something about 30 Seconds to Mars that stirs up my stable and stoic emotions into something stronger and fiery.

It’s probably because their type of music is different from the usual rock that we hear.

Anyway, I guess I would have to learn more about their genre that talk about it now like I’m an expert on it or something.

 

I remember last night, I was so angry with everything that was currently happening that day that a little bit of Closer to the Edge helped me calm down and feel better about myself.

Thank God for music. Thank God for the freedom of expression.

Alex Goot – Everytime We Touch (Cascada Cover)

 

I can’t stop listening to this song. This is way better than the original, not that I have any complains with the original. The original was more of a dance song to me than a love song.

Goot’s version made me appreciate more the lyrics and message of the song;

and for the first time, I felt that I can relate to the message, probably because just recently, I learned that I am capable of feeling this way.

Anyway, for those who also just realized the beauty of this song after hearing Goot’s version, here’s a copy of the lyrics from the original:

 

 

I still hear your voice, when you sleep next to me.
I still feel your touch in my dreams.
Forgive me my weakness, but I don’t know why.
Without you it’s hard to survive. Cause everytime we touch, I get this feeling.
And everytime we kiss I swear I can fly.
Can’t you feel my heart beat fast, I want this to last.
Need you by my side.
Cause everytime we touch, I feel this static.
And everytime we kiss, I reach for the sky.
Can’t you hear my heart beat so
I can’t let you go.
Want you in my life.

Your arms are my castle, your heart is my sky.
They wipe away tears that I cry.
The good and the bad times, we’ve been through them all.
You make me rise when I fall.

Cause everytime we touch, I get this feeling.
And everytime we kiss I swear I can fly.
Can’t you feel my heart beat fast, I want this to last.
Need you by my side.
Cause everytime we touch, I feel this static.
And everytime we kiss, I reach for the sky.
Can’t you hear my heart beat so
I can’t let you go.
Want you in my life

Cause everytime we touch, I get this feeling.
And everytime we kiss I swear I can fly.
Can’t you feel my heart beat fast, I want this to last.
Need you by my side

I still hear your voice, when you sleep next to me.
I still feel your touch in my dreams.
Forgive me my weakness, but I don’t know why.
Without you it’s hard to survive.

Cause everytime we touch, I get this feeling.
And everytime we kiss I swear I can fly.
Can’t you feel my heart beat fast, I want this to last.
Need you by my side.
Cause everytime we touch, I feel this static.
And everytime we kiss, I reach for the sky.
Can’t you hear my heart beat so
I can’t let you go.
Want you in my life.

Your arms are my castle, your heart is my sky.
They wipe away tears that I cry.
The good and the bad times, we’ve been through them all.
You make me rise when I fall.

Cause everytime we touch, I get this feeling.
And everytime we kiss I swear I can fly.
Can’t you feel my heart beat fast, I want this to last.
Need you by my side.
Cause everytime we touch, I feel this static.
And everytime we kiss, I reach for the sky.
Can’t you hear my heart beat so
I can’t let you go.
Want you in my life

Cause everytime we touch, I get this feeling.
And everytime we kiss I swear I can fly.
Can’t you feel my heart beat fast, I want this to last.
Need you by my side

Shoes Prediction for Spring/ Summer: Red High Heels

It took me forever to find nude shoes for my cousin’s wedding that happened last November. I remember that I was already searching for one as early as June, but sadly I was not able to find one. I found one though, but they weren’t exactly like what I wanted (look at Nude shoes picture), but it still looked good on me.

What disappointed me most is that as soon as the Winter collection of shoes came, BOOM! there goes nude shoes everywhere! Since this Christmas season, dull colors are in today (such as blacks and greys).. they decided to also include nude shoes as a dull color. Imagine the pain I had to go through when I found out that they were available everywhere! tsk tsk.

But then again, it made me thought: is it just me or was I one of the people who can sort of predict the next trend? The vanity in me told me that yes, I am one of those people.

So now, I am going to test if I really am one of those people. I believe that after the Winter collection.. red high heels will go back. Why? Since dull colors will reign for a few months, people will miss colors and I bet the first color that would come to mind as soon as spring comes is RED. And since high heels never really go out of fashion, women would go looking for heels. Plus, RED IS SEXY; after months of being covered up with cardigans, jackets and hoodies, people would definitely want to expose all the pheromones that they have hibernated.

Plus, I want want red high heels now, and I can’t find anything RED in the stores today! I have been looking at all kinds of shoestores – be it local or foreign, be it near or far – NO RED SHOES.

So what do you think of my prediction?


Red High Heels

ooohh.. I want you NOW.

Nude shoes

where have you been from June-November 2010?

welcome to me! ~back to blogging!!

this is definitely a selfish post since this would only be all about me for now. I have been thinking about making a WordPress account.. and now that I have, I have no idea how to use this! 🙂 basically, what got me inspired is the film The Social Network. I found it funny how Jesse Eisenberg‘s character, Mark Zuckerburg, would be making one of the top sites of the world while blogging and drinking about his break-up!
anyway, i need more time to fix all this. hopefully, people would get to read my “blog” or whatever this is. hahaha! :))

GOOD LUCK TO ME!!
