Video Vendredi

 

Hanging with Lexy, and she found this video.

A friend said that russian rap sounds ridiculous.

I agree, and this video isn’t russian rap…

But after the rap, we had to know that there was some other russian music other than the ridiculousness of a guy wearing a silver skull half-mask and thinking he’s the shit. ‘

Here it is.

 

Musical Mondays – Butterfly Boucher

Suggested to me by a friend.

It was described as “Catchy and entertaining”

I find myself agreeing :D

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday :)

By the way, I was tempted to post this as a Video Vendredi because of the cool video :P What restraint I have, hmm?

Musical Mondays – Peter Hollens A Capella

I really want to play Skyrim.

Like, really really, it’s so cool!

I had this desire renewed from it’s lull after watching another Lindsey Stirling video, but the video was also by Peter Hollens (who is By the by, AMAZING and does a capella), and his stuff was introduced to me as well.

So here is the Skyrim video that I have been listening to so much of lately.

This is just full of amazing, and I hope you check out Peter Hollens and Lindsey Stirling, and HERE is a link to one of Peter Hollens Music videos. (Somebody that I used to know)

Hope you all enjoy! Have a nice Easter Monday, and My apologies for this coming out so late. I was just sending off my family from visiting me this long weekend.

Musical Monday – SHINee Sherlock

Because I feel like a lot of Video Vendredi would otherwise turn into a lot of music videos, I’m going to try to restrict that to Musical Mondays :D

I realize that last Friday’s video included music, but it wasn’t a band, and it wasn’t specifically a music video.

So This category will be for random songs I like (maybe am in a funk and keep listening to the song), videos I think are fun, interesting, funny, etc… and in general This is my way of pushing my varied taste in music to the world.

If anyone has any suggestions, or personal likes, or maybe a band that they think is cool but not that many people like them or know of them, comment :D

For today, Here is A mix of two enthusiastic posts from the past mixed, as well as a bit of something for dog owners and noticing things.

For my post on SHINee (and kpop), click HERE, for my post on Sherlock, click HERE (and here for the follow up), and check out my Video Vendredi and future Musical Mondays! Isn’t Alliteration fun?!


For dog owners: Am I the only one who noticed the dog wasn’t fixed in the first time I watched this? Lexy?

For everyone else: Did you re watch this to check?

For absolutely everyone did you notice:

iWatson on the computer at the end?

Ridiculously long hair? (at 1:00)

How hilarious that walk is at 1:32?

How awesome Taemin is at 2:53 and 3:01??? I love him in a Top Hat :D

Hope you enjoyed the dancing and music, this is a video from their new album (2012) called Sherlock… this of course means I have been fangirl-ing all over this to an epic degree…

Lexy, hope you enjoy yet another bit of annoyingness :D

BONUS: Watch only the dancing HERE

Video Vendredi – The Music Box

Third Video Vendredi!

I’m going to have to retract what I said in the first, Lexy has Wordless Wednesdays, yes, but so do a number of people apparently.

I still like Video Vendredi though.

Perhaps I shall also do a Musical Monday, or some other alliteration to some other day of the week. Or month.

I don’t know…

Suggested to me by a friend, here is “The music Box”

Hope you enjoy :D

Question for you: What genre of music would you want to have played to your actions?

I Have a kpop Crush… oh dear…

During my last year of high school, most of my friends when on a ‘kpop’ frenzy.

I, at the time, thought that kpop was a band. K. pop. Kpop. Like NSYNC. But foreign.

It sounds like it could be a band, right? Well, to everyone who also thought that it sounded like a possible band name, it apparently isn’t.

Kpop, is Korean pop.

My friends also mentioned a number of different bands, suggested for me to look up and listen to since I wasn’t nearly as enthusiastic about Blah and Blahdeblah and Bloodegit and Bleesh and Young Blearggy as well as the other Gibberish names that burst from their mouths too quickly.

One band, which I remember because I could actually remember the name back then enough to look it up (and be disappointed), was SHINee.

Well, the difference between back then and now is that this time my friend sent me a number of links to look at and click at my leisure, and got to listen to actual music and not think my friends were crazy for a bit.

Back then, since nothing was turning up when I searched “Shiny music” other than glittery sounds. There was also “calming soothing music” that sounded like the composer was trying to make sounds that might sooth my fluctuating aura.

I was unimpressed with my friends and their taste in music for a little while before deciding I have better taste in friends than that, and therefore was probably looking up the wrong “Shiny” than their “SHINee”.

So I was that quiet person at the table when that conversation topic came up.

Oh yeah, sure I heard that one song, didn’t much like it as that other song you were talking about earlier… yeah, that one. No wait, or was it another one? I don’t know, I listened to it on a playlist, and it was labeled useful things like “Track 01″ and “Track 02″.

What? No I’m not lying… I really do like Shiny. That is how you pronounce it right? Yeah, see?

So yeah, I went out of my way to make sure my friends just wouldn’t ask about it, mainly by lying with ignorance, but they were worse than when I was much younger and everyone else was going gaga (a funny term to use nowadays) over the Backstreet Boys.

Or was it Boyz?

Whatever, I missed out on THAT fad by not being interested in much any kind of music and listening to Queen’s greatest hits…

I think this is Karma or something. Everyone lacking the y-chromosome must have a band crush, an most get it over with when they’re young. They are smart even as they squeal and ask each other which one they like more. The cute one? The smart one? What do you mean they’re all ‘gay’ dad? You heard it from Weird Al?

But I missed out on getting the embarrassment out. I missed the deadline, and now life is smacking me in the face with something more than Backstreet Boys. More than NSYNC. Something I don’t even understand!

And now I have a band crush.

I’m in love with SHINee…

Perhaps, when Life was trying to decide what I would get my band crush on, it wondered what kind of music, what genre… and then it saw that I like anime and manga and most things foreign… and decided  kpop was the one.

Well, she watches shows with subtitles anyway, so lets throw korean pop at her!

ShaZAYM!

At 1:45 or so that thing is really cool, and the guy in front makes a funny face :D

They also, if you’re interested, make japanese versions of a good deal of their songs… HERE for the same song, in Japanese. Same dancing, different outfits, and that scene where the one guy makes a funny face is gone, but instead he gets a funny hat :D

*sigh*… and they’re all so cute too…

At least Life hit me with a band full of eye candy :P

RESPONSIBLE eye candy as well.

SHINee gets pulled into doing a show, called “Hello Baby”… They get a kid and have to take care of it. That’s the point of the show… It’s REALLY FRIGGING ADDICTING TO WATCH! Watch it HERE

*sigh*… This is mainly just to lament the fact that I no longer have a life, and am now very close to remembering each of their names, and knowing the general sounds and sort-of-recognizable words from some of their songs…

You may also like HELLO , Ringdingdong, Juliet, Amigo, Replay, and many more by SHINee :D (last link is a guide to the members)

To prove that I’m not in a dying little musical circle, here’s a chart that has probably been updated to show how many more people know about and like kpop.

Other examples of kpop, that I like or have heard of are:

Troublemaker : This song I’ve listened to many MANY times… Makes me want to whistle along :D Fun song as well.. Lexy, click the link. Seriously. You’ll be jamming along with it :D

4minute Ft. Beast/ B2ST – HuH (Hit Your Heart) : This may help some people who like more popular rap/pop because it sounds like a foreign version of a number of hits :D This link cuts off at the end though, still good though

I am the best by 2NE1 : This one is funny and may have bum bratatata tata tata ta stuck in your head for a bit :D Fun video as well… not my fav, but it’s impressive what they do in such high heels… also funny horn hair at the end XD

PONPONPON : You will think that the person who made the video was on crack, but honestly as soon as you get past the bizarrenness, you will be giggling up a fit at the ridiculousness of it all :D So funny :D

I also heard that Super Junior is good, but I’ve been trying to limit my band crushes for this next while.

So there’s a huge burst of Kpop for your system, if anyone has suggestions for me, SUGGEST THEM!

Also, if your excuse to not watching or listening is lack of understanding, I mentioned my watching series with subtitles for a reason. You CAN get subtitles, or even look up translated lyrics ;)

What would you say about your boyfriend/girlfriend?

Drunken Lament [Ludo]

How would you describe your neighbors?

A Moment like this [Various Artists]

(They haven’t eaten any of my stuff since I got back, so I’ll assume it’s a happy thought… unless it’s about how some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this, and could have gone another lifetime without someone you don’t know or really like eating your food)

Riot [Three Days Grace]

What’s on your bedside table right now?

Memory [Cats]

A song you would sing at your school’s talent show is…

Love Train [Big and Rich]

(Hah! That’s fun :P)

Your life’s theme song would be…

Whatsername [Green Day]

How would you describe what you are doing right now?

Colossal [Wolfmother]

(Not that big a deal actually :D)

If you had to go and jump off a building, what would your last words be?

I love you [Barenaked Ladies]

If someone says “Is this okay?” you say…

Don’t Go Knockin’ On My Door [Britney Spears]

(Wow, if my ‘motto’ doesn’t make me seem a bit of a bitch, this does… But then again, unless it’s directly involving me, I have no responsibility towards others decisions. I can give my opinions, but I didn’t force them to do anything, so Britney is right :P)

How would you describe yourself?

Rebel Yell [Billy Idol]

How do you feel today?

Champagne for my real friends, Real pain for my Sham friends [Fallout boy]

What is your life purpose?

Behind these Hazel eyes [Kelly Clarkson]

(Which makes sense because I have blue eyes… maybe my life purpose is to get people to actually notice things… fits with my visual art classes)

Any last words?

Goodbye Grace [Spirit of the West]

(Goodbye Grace. I wish I knew someone named Grace… actually I think I do, and I didn’t like her that much, except that she taught me something funny about squirrels.)
