But Life Goes On

 Isn’t that picture true? I mean if you want to add other words you are welcome to do so but for me those are the perfect words to use now.

  Shit happens. But life goes on. 🙂

I have a few ideas of what to post today….but I can’t seem to find the way to start them. SO much is happening in my life right now my brain is just not working properly. And this world we live in is so crazy and just WEIRD. Not weird in a good way (if there is such a thing) but weird in a bad way. All these things that are happening…you can’t even have the right of freedom of speech or kids not even respecting each other anymore.

I warn you that since my brain is not working this post will just be a rambling of words. Either way, I still had to post something ….


 

Well I’m really tired of all the shit that is happening and I just want a break…I feel tired and mad. But you know what? I have decided to just forget everything that is happening…things like a prediction of World War Three or kids my age who don’t give three hoots about anything but what shoes to wear, how their hair looks, or what girl is the hottest and has the biggest boobs or ass. And you know what I’m just tired of this world. Isn’t it supposed to be a safe place? Like I said, this post will not make sense…but if you get what I wrote in some way then congrats.

Just remember, shit happens and Life goes on. And maybe, something great will come out of all this madness. And it will :). I know it will.

Remember, if you haven’t had a great time look at the bright side and put your hope in something. God is my hope 😀


 

Well this is my confusing post of the day….a song that always makes me smile (its in Spanish) “Late mi Corazon”. My Heart Beats, is a song by this new Spanish Christian band called Montreal (which I happen to know them personally). They are 4 Argentinean siblings (except the drummer)  They are starting to be known here in Miami and they are great. They didn’t ask me to promote them or anything. I wanted to, because their songs are so inspirational. Like this one :D. If you can’t understand the lyrics I’ll explain it to you:

the band is singing that their heart beats when they hear about God. They can’t stop singing about God or speaking about him because they love him very much and they feel God’s love. They want to shout how God is salvation and they can’t stop. Enjoy the video!

Music is My Life Posts: Owl City

  I LOVE music. I seriously do. Its something that makes me feel alive and new.  I decided to create a post where I would publish my most favorite songs from my most favorite artists.  I want to at least do this every week. I haven’t seen this anywhere else so its my own original idea.

 Today’s turn is: Owl City

 Owl City is an American electronica project created in 2007 in Owatonna, Minnesota, one of several such projects by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Young. Young created the project while experimenting with music in his parents’ basement. Owl City developed a following on the social networking site Myspace, like many musicians who achieved success in the late 2000s, before signing with Universal Republic in 2008.

After two independent releases, Owl City gained mainstream popularity with the 2009 major label debut album Ocean Eyes, which included the quadruple-platinum hit single Fireflies. The album was certified Platinum in the United States in April 2010.

In 2011, Owl City released his third studio album, All Things Bright and Beautiful. This was followed by The Midsummer Station in August 2012. Owl City has also recorded songs for animated films including Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’HooleWreck-It RalphThe Croods and The Smurfs 2.

Me:

I first knew about Owl City by the radio. I was just mesmerized by the music, lyrics, and his voice. Its very different than what I usually hear. The thing about Owl City is Adam Young’s lyrics are POSITIVE and HAPPY. Nothing sad or about break ups. His lyrics have a beautiful message behind them once you really listen to them and read them.

The song that was written by him that I want to share with you all is his big hit: “Fireflies” Its a beautiful song based on his own experience about insomnia and the world. Its more than that too…just listen to it.

*I hope you enjoyed this beautiful song. To learn more about Owl City you can go to Wikipedia where I got my information.

Young and Beautiful/ Lana Del Rey

I first heard Lana’s voice when I was watching the movie The Great Gatsby (which was amazing and tragic), and I was just mesmerized by her voice. It sounds haunting yet beautiful. Its very different than most of the voices we hear now. I immediately started listening to her songs and I LOVED her voice and songs. Yes, her songs are sad and tragic but there is always something beautiful about it.

Lana has like a retro style and her name Lana is not actually her name. She was inspired by Lana Turner and thus she changed her name.

Young and Beautiful is a very sad but gorgeous song. I love the style and musical instruments. I wanted to share my favorite song with you guys!

Enjoy 🙂
