Day 261: Hey London by Chiddy Bang

2 Mar

Hey everyone!

This is my JAM for today! As you probably already know, I’m a pretty big fan of Chiddy Bang (from this post)… I feel like they are one of the more fun hip hop artists that have come out of the past couple of years, although I could be wrong (as you can probably tell I’m not the most experienced writer of Hip-hop)

Anyway, this song is actually kind of silly… I love the chorus:

“Hey London
I know you’ve never seen me before
And though I’d love to stay and kick it some more
I gotta get back on my tour
So the only thing I gotta say is
Hey London
You gotta know I love ya for sure
Just let me in cos you opened the door
If I gotta get back on my tour…”

I mean, it’s literally about how this guy came to London, but he has to leave now. Really? That’s awesome (at least in my opinion)

So jam it out today to “Hey London” by Chiddy Bang!

EDIT: This post is dedicated to my friend Emilio, mainly because he’s the one that introduced me to Chiddy Bang in the first place!

Day 260: If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out by Cat Stevens

1 Mar

Hello everyone!

For today’s ACTUAL post, I wanted to feature my favorite song from one of my favorite people of all time: Cat Stevens.

His look and videos are a wee bit dated (as you will see in this video), but his music is timeless… I’ve been a big fan of his since I was a little kid and I just recently rediscovered my love for his soothing voice.

“If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out” by Cat Stevens is such a beautiful song with a powerful message: do what you want to do because you are yourself. It’s wonderful. Although the video is a little silly…

Anyway, enjoy this song and remember, you need to be yourself… don’t try to change who you are for anyone!

Day 258: Catfish (2010)

28 Feb

Hey everyone!

Today is the big day: THE ACADEMY AWARDS!! Every year I sit and watch the big award show and leave somewhat disappointed… but regardless it’s awesome to see what’s going on in the minds of old people deciding these winners!

Anyways, in honor of the award show, I want to feature a movie that didn’t get nominated!

Last night I watched the  documentary Catfish (2010)  and I walked out of it completely shocked. It was incredible!

The premise of the movie is as follows: Yaniv Schulman is a photographer, and one day he is contacted by a six-year-old girl who painted a beautiful version of one of his photos. He begins to become friends with this girl and her family, ending up in almost a long-distance relationship with the young girl’s sister. As new developments turn up (his new passion to talk to Megan, the sister), the documentary changes meaning.

But when things begin to seem a little off, the filmmakers begin to dig deep in the meaning of YouTube, Facebook, Google Maps, and texting to find the real truth about this family.

It’s not scary (like the preview tries to portray), in fact it’s actually really fascinating. But what made it so intriguing was the charm and tense feeling you get when watching it. I found myself both creeped out and completely enthralled. It’s amazing.

I warn you, though, it is really intense… the ending is slightly expected, but also really incredible.

Here’s the preview…. if you’re interested, be sure to check it out! I want everyone to see it.

Day 256: After Hours by The Velvet Underground

25 Feb

Hello there!

For the blog today, I wanted to feature an adorable song. Even though the lyrics are a little sad (and sadly true about myself), the song is super sweet and super fantastic.

“After Hours” by The Velvet Underground is one of those weird tracks that appears at the very end of The Velvet Underground I (which I so happened to buy on vinyl today at the record store) that I always skip to. Maureen Tucker, the drummer of the band, has such an imperfect voice that it’s strangely good.

Today has been a great day, and “After Hours” is a great song.

Enjoy!

Day 216: [BELATED] Final Ode of the day: David Arquette (specifically in Roadracers)

17 Jan

Hey guys!

We love David Arquette

Last night, my friend Ally and I had a movie night that went from Robert Rodriguez films to a strange, mini-David Arquette Fest. And while we harped and laughed at his acting, we realized something important:

WE LOVE DAVID ARQUETTE.

Yeah, he may not be the greatest actor alive, but he is definitely one of those people that just wins over my heart.

We watched Roadracers (1994), which is like a fake 50s movie by Rodriguez… starring David Arquette and Salma Hayek. It was a little rough around the edges, mainly because it was a made-for-tv-movie, but Arquette had a solid performance and it was pretty great!

Then we moved on to Scream (1996), which, in its defense, is made to be a little bit silly… but Arquette’s character was super silly and super comic relief. Which just made me smile. Long live Deputy Dewey!

He sure is enjoying that ice cream cone.

In addition to these movies, I’ve always loved him in one of my guilty pleasures Eight Legged Freaks (2002), where he gets chased by enormous spiders. To be honest, I saw that movie in theaters and have watched it thousands of times on TV, and I never once regretted my (secret) crush on D. Arquette.

He seems like a genuinely nice guy in real life, and I can’t help but love his characters.

So when you’re sad and you need a pick me up, put a little David Arquette in your soul and you’ll feel so much better!

Here’s the preview for Roadracers:
