Video: Adele–Hello

My spirit animal is back. Yes, I know I’m late in posting this but nonetheless here we are. Just when you thought you were at one with your emotions, she comes in full force. Welcome back Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, glad to see you working again. 25 will be one of her best, I can feel it in my bones. Can we talk about her makeup in this video? Jesus bless the child who bestowed upon us that perfectly contoured face. Especially at 3:33 (inserts yaaasssssss hands). So excited for this album.

The memes with Lionel Richie are epic with this song. Hello is a wonderful tune for those who were once assholes to past exes or said fuck you, you and double fuck you BUT since I’ve never broken any hearts, to me it’s more of a friendship song because I have in fact broken up with friends and zero fucks were given at the time. As we mature, we reflect and think back to those we’ve hurt, hurt us etc. etc. I usually fall off the face of the planet and maybe resurface to say I’m sorry but if it was your fault and I left, best believe I am not saying sorry. I have pride. LOL.

Video: Steven A Clark-Can’t Have

I don’t know much about Steven besides the fact that he comes from North Carolina, has awesome taste in fashion and is a breath of fresh air as cliché as that sounds. I am definitely getting this album. It’s not the normal average sound which is why I like it. He has a beautiful voice: bluesy and his falsetto is nooiiiceeee (I’m a sucker for falsettos on men).

His debut album ‘The Lonely Roller’ is up for pre-order but comes out September 18th on Secretly Canadian.

Video: Jamie xx–Loud Places Feat. Romy

Jamie xx is set to release a new album in June titled “In Colour” and so far a few tracks have been released. ‘Loud Places’ is the newest one featuring fellow band mate and best friend Romy from The xx. Both enjoyed skateboarding growing up and figured the video would be good doing so. Hopefully we get a new xx album soon. Ready for a new one.

Video: JMSN–Foolin’

Because he’s amazing and I finally got to see him live and meet him and chit chat for a few minutes. JMSN… you are the man. If you ever want to see someone perform live and want them to sound exactly the same, go se JMSN. Houston’s performance was great. Hope to see you again! Here is ‘Foolin”, one of the best tracks off JMSN.

P.S. He has the best freaking group ever. His drummer is amazing!

You’re everything I want, yeah
It’s something that you got, oh
And i just want to make you stay
Keep you here right next to me, yeah
You know you turn me on, ah
It’s a feeling I can’t fight, oh no-no
(So let’s make it easy) no
(So simple and easy)

Video: Drake–Jungle (Short Film)

She said you’re my everything
I love you through everything
I done did everything to her
She forgave me for everything, this a forever thing
Hate that I treated like it’s a whatever thing
Trust me girl, this shit is everything to me…

Don’t know where we stand, I used to hit you ’bout everything
Are we still good? Are we still good?
Are we still good? Are we still good?
If I need to talk are you around?
Are you down for the cause?
Are you down? Are you down? Are you down?
Are you down for the cause?
Are you down? Are you down? Are you down?
Are you down for the cause?
You still down? You still down? You still down?

I’m late on everything but this song is everything.

Video: Yuna–Broke Her

Tell me is this alright with you?
Having me in your life.
I always thought, that maybe I could be your wife,
And I wouldn’t mind living a lie.
Still I keep my hopes up,
I am out there, out there lighting the dark.

Your words they come out so easy,
“Girl I just want to be me”
All the sudden I’m not on your team,
replaced by the prettier things.
But I see you with all these girls,
I just don’t understand.
I guess I’m not like the rest of them.

So this is my punishment, punishment, punishment.
‘Cause baby I’m in pain, I’m in pain, I’m in pain,
I’m just trying to overcome, the fact that maybe I was not enough,
The only thing that I think of is whether I should give up.

See you can be with any girl you like,
you can send them all the fashion and social life(not sure about this line lol)
Buy them all the things your money can buy,
you don’t owe nobody an alibi.
Go ahead and leave me out of your life,
no one’s gonna ask you where you are tonight.
You can tell your friends while you’re all hot…
Yeah I broke her but she’ll be alright.

I broke her but she’ll be alright
I broke her but she’ll be alright

I’m broken but… I’ll be alright.

When I first heard the intro, I thought Yuna was going to do something very un-Yuna like. I was wrong. She made this beat used by Drake in 0-100 sort of irrelevant for me, no offense Drake. She found the original producers of the song and made it her own. Wow. That is all I’ve got to say. This song hit me like a ton of bricks. I can’t stop listening to it. Hear for yourself.

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.
