VIDEO: VICKTOR TAIWO–DIGITAL KIDS

Vicktor Taiwo has a little chunk of my heart, it would be bigger but at the moment, Sam Smith holds the rest. Vicktor released this masterpiece of a video. It’s so beautiful with such depth and depicts paintings with lifelike qualities… it’s truly, breathtaking. I’ve never seen a video like this in my time. ‘Digital Kids’ is about a year old and we get a video treatment for it and the wait was totally worth it. This is truly the type of song that will never age because of the beauty of it and for the power the words hold. Having Pigeons and Planes premiere his video he leaves an explanation:

Before, children had time to think that the world was beautiful and I think that should be virulently protected. But now, you know what’s wrong with the world from such a young age. You have no time to be a child; you have no time to appreciate how beautiful this world is, and it is beautiful.

July 7th will be the day he releases ‘Mercury’ and I for one, am beyond excited.

Video Game Trailer: Mortal Kombat X

So I may be the only human left in the world who doesn’t own an Xbox or a Playstation or a Wii or (insert all the damn gaming consoles here). BUT this for SURE will have me buying something next year or sooner. I LOVE Mortal Kombat! I’ve even seen the movie and I’ll probably watch the one that is being made or what not. So I was excited beyond shit when I saw this.

Video: Sam Smith–Leave Your Lover

Sam Smith (my favorite person in the wholeeeeeeeee wide world) drops the video for ‘Leave Your Lover’ and ends it with a twist. Sam can do no wrong in my eyes and to those freaking pesky youtube comment people, does it matter if he’s gay or, bi-sexual or straight? He’s a living angel! I’m slightly obsessed with him and I am counting down the days for ACL so I can go sing my heart out and possibly leave with raccoon eyes for crying. It’s a strong possibility that will happen. I love you Sammmmmmmmm lol.

Video: JMSN–Thing You Miss (NSFW)

You wanted me,
But I don’t think that there’s such thing.
Well, I can be,
whatever you want me to be.

And I don’t love you, no.
But, you and I can make believe.
Pretending’s hard;
But, giving up is easy.
We can take it slow.
There’s endless possibilities.
But, hurry up because the moments fading.

A life like this,
Is never something you can fix, no.
And, as time turns tricks,
Love is like a thing you miss on the way.

We only see
What we wanna see.
We disagree
With Reality.

And I don’t love you, no.
But, you and I can make believe.
Pretending’s hard;
But, giving up is easy.
We can take it slow.
There’s endless possibilities.
But, hurry up because the moments fading.

A life like this,
Is never something you can fix, no.
And, as time turns tricks,
Love is like a thing you miss on the way.

We may never ever feel it again, the rush.
But, we can make you feel better the more we crush.

You know every little thing depends on trust.
Each beginning is the start of the end for us.

A life like this,
Is never something you can fix, no.
And, as time turns tricks,
Love is like a thing you miss on the way.

JMSN delivers a new video for his track ‘Thing You Miss’. It’s a symbolic video as most of his videos are. The difference? A few things. One: There is no explanation to this one like we get on the rest of his videos/songs. Two: It may not be so obvious to some. The lyrics tell a story and the video follows BUT so many people have veils over their eyes that don’t see the simplicity in this. Well, at least how simple I see it. Two women define this: one an older lady, the other a younger one. You as the audience are left to figure out what it is, that is going on. When I saw this, this to me was a single woman: one showing her youth and the other aging. Hair played that part. The younger girl isn’t a busty, big butt, curvy woman. She is a woman. One who bares it all and shows what women look like. The other showing what an aging woman looks like. A rug was placed on the floor with Jesus on it. Symbol that brings us all as humans, as one. A worship in a sense to do good in his eyes. It just shows the respect (and maybe JMSN plays the part, lol. He looks so much like him! All bs aside…) The older woman is helping the younger woman so to speak with insecurity as her hair is her shelter. It’s her security blanket against the world and by shedding light to who she really is, shows the caring part of the older lady, the motherly figure. Everyone is so fixated on what a woman ‘should’ look like that when shown this version of a woman, people are disgusted, appalled, shallow… shattered. Perception wants a beautiful corpse with curves and muscles and strength that most women/men don’t have. This ‘version’ is either what people really fall in love with or are with but not in love with hence “and I don’t love you no, but we can make believe” many relationships are built on looks, built on education, stature or plain and simple comfort. You’re comfortable with the person that you give up and just settle. Everyone is fixated on what they want to hear, what sounds good, what is convenient, what you want. What you want to see. JMSN made a bold move by incorporating nudity as being naked shows vulnerability, shows defeat, shows all the insecurities one has. Taking this back to Adam and Eve, when created, being naked was nothing to be ashamed of. Wasn’t until the snake said eat the fruit and they saw both aspects and covered up. Society is the snake in this situation and the older lady cut away of the shame and showed the young girl who she really was. Love shouldn’t be shameful, it shouldn’t be vain and it shouldn’t be defeated. Time passes quickly and this can also symbolize that we need to figure out who we are before time is up and we are either alone or in a shitty fucking relationship because one or the other settled out of fear of being alone.

Take it for what YOU see, not for what I see. Because:

A life like this,
Is never something you can fix, no.
And, as time turns tricks,
Love is like a thing you miss on the way.

Video: JMSN–Love Myself

Wish this was longer but we have a new album on the way!!! Maybe this time he’ll visit Houston and not every other town around us lol. Swear I want to manage his tours, be a back up singer, do his artwork, or simply send out emails. LMAO! This man and his music is the real deal. I’ve said it many times and I’ll keep saying it. I own every vinyl he’s put out, even the special numbered ones. That’s my favorite. ‘Blue Album’ sometime 2014.

Video: Disclosure–Latch Feat. Sam Smith (Coachella)

I just want to put him in my pocket. I WILL see him and I will make it to Coachella soon. These two are on my musical bucket list.

UP-FUCKING-DATE!!! I will be seeing Sam Smith at ACL! Yesssssssssssssssss along with my boo Iggy Azalea and Eminem and Lana Del Rey and Skrillex and EVERYONE! Best early birthday present everrrrr.

Video: Sam Smith-Make It To Me (Stripped)

This man is fucking perfection. He does nothing and I mean NOTHING wrong. I’ve been listening to him for quite some time now and I am so happy he is where he is and deserves. I can’t even think of how many times I sing his music on the way to work and on the way back home. I just… love him. I can’t tell which Lawrence brother is on the piano from Disclosure. I’m going to say Guy.

My mind runs away to you
With a thought I hope you’ll see
Can’t see where it’s wandered to
But I know where it wants to be

Trailer: X-Men: Days Of Future Past

Totally geekin’ out right now. Hopefully this is the last trailer we get. I don’t want to see anymore. Quicksilverrrrrrrr for the win. Too bad Scarlet Witch won’t be in this one 😥 Peter Dinklage for the win too. Always good to see GOT’s Imp in other places. Got my T-shirt ready, now I just need May 23rd to hustle.

Video: Lolawolf–James Franco (Featuring Guest Appearance: A$AP Rocky)

Lolawolf! I’d heard ‘Drive’ but now ‘James Franco’ has a video treatment with A$AP? Lolawolf is fronted by Zoë Kravitz and her voice is just candy. Just a simple video with her flirting with A$AP and taunting him for a kiss and he pecks her but then she licks his lips towards the end. Cute ass video for you sappy ones (like me LOL). Lolawolf’s self-titled EP is out on iTunes.
