Queen G – Mug Coffee House

I thought this ad was pretty cool! Some would say the video is a bit… dark, but I like it! It’s pretty creative, especially for this area of the world. The song is really, really catchy too! The whole thing kinda’ reminds of Rock & Rule (80’s Animated Movie), for some reason. This ad been out for a minute now, but I’m still feelin’ it!

In the interest of full disclosure, I didn’t stumble upon this by chance. It was actually mentioned in a blog post on https://248am.com/

Lil Uzi Vert – 444+222

So much yes! ♥

If I was the type that went to the gym, this is what I’d be listening to. As it stands, I don’t do gym. However, this song sounds just as awesome blaring from the sound system in my car ^_~ I particularly love listening to this on lo~ong drives (to areas farther away from the city, such as Mahboula/Mangaf/etc…). So good!

Maître Gims – Je Te Pardonne ft. Sia

Now that all the shows I watch regularly are winding down for the season, the lack of Game of Thrones this year is really starting to hit me (I’m going through Game of Thrones withdrawal lawl).

Thankfully, I’ve got Fear The Walking Dead, and The Handmaid’s Tale, and for something a little lighter The 100, to tide me over. Also, I believe the new season of Big Brother (UK) is coming up, in about a week or so. Apparently, I’d completely erased the season 1 finale of Westworld from my mind, because I watched the first episode of season 2 when it first came out and literally had no clue what was going on (which has been a recurring theme for me while watching Westworld) so I’m gonna wait for a few episodes to pile up (if not the entire season) so I can just binge-watch the whole thing. For the record, I don’t do Arabic Dramas (not now, not ever). Now is the perfect time to switch over to binging on Korean Shows and some Anime!

In any case, a couple of months ago, I stumbled upon this music video that someone made by splicing Game of Thrones scenes (namely the Battle of Bastards episodes) and adding the song Je Te Pardonne (I forgive you) by Maitre Gims (french dude) featuring Sia to accompany the whole thing. Normally, I find it pretty cheezy when people do that (combine songs with scenes from their favorite anime or movie or tv show or whatever) but in this instance, I quite like it (odd choice of song however, especially if you speak french, but if you completely disregard the lyrics, or like myself, do not speak french, then it kinda’ works)! Obviously, it’s not the original music video, but I actually prefer it to the original. If you’re interested, I’ve included the original version below. As per usual, Sia‘s voice is amaze!

Have a lovely weekend!

R.I.P. Avicii

It is with a broken heart that I write this… Tim Bergling famously known as Avicii (28-year-old musician, record producer, and DJ who was often deemed as the pioneer of the contemporary Electronic Dance Movement) passed away in Muscat, Oman, on April 20. I only know a handful of his songs and I’ve never actually had the pleasure of attending any of his concerts but I couldn’t stop bawling (not even to write this post) once the news broke. Even today, I kept running off to seclusion (it’s almost physically impossible for me to cry in front of people) so I could have a little cry. Tim Bergling was an amazing, amazing human who touched so many hearts (mine included) which is why it’s incredibly sad that he’s gone… and at such a young age too.

Tyga – Boss Up

You’ve got a mermaid swimming around in a roof-top pool, an obligatory Biker Gang, and finally someone wearing the stereotypical Oni Mask. If all that wasn’t enough, Tyga gets fed some sushi. Finally, the automatic weapon (I wanna’ say Uzi but I’m no expert so I could be wrong) hidden in the flower bouquet, as the game-changing twist. I think they were trying to go for something here. Maybe the music video was meant to be like an Anime? I’m not quite sure though. There weren’t enough cliches for me. I believe there’s room for a few more. That said, the music video is pretty fun (add a mermaid anywhere and I’m happy) and the lyrics are nice but the track (the melody?) is awesome!

Edit: At a first glance, I honestly thought that was Kylie! Holy smokes, the resemblance is is uncanny (obviously, intended but still).
