I was thinking...

is it just me or does anyone else really want twenty one pilots to cover “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”?? Because it’d be beautiful. 

twentyonepilots stillstreet: please?

Ok, let’s be honest. This is probably one of the most enjoyable Naruto Shippuden endings that I’ve seen since a long time ago. Since when did we wait for this to happen, finally Ichiraku ramen get some credits in the anime. It’s a symbolic place for Naruto, a place where he shares many things with his friends, it’s a place that brings people together, especially those connected to Naruto. This ending is the proof. Big thanks to Teuchi and his daughter ^^

This ending made me all emotional, not gonna lie. This little Naruhina moment was really… informative and cute :3, with Minakushi moment, it’s not us but Studio Pierrot who want to show to the fandom that we aren’t wrong and that there’s definitively a parallel. Plus, it’s FLOW… Dammit, it’s FLOW!!! This amazing J-pop band who did countless great songs and did so much for Naruto! At this point, I never saw a music band who did so much for Naruto, it’s their 4th song for Naruto. They’re not SP’s friends but theirs lovers, yeah! A original ending with a FLOW’s song… It’s the guaranteed death combo.

Got me like:

This is just so much to handle… and we got news for Boruto’s movie, they planned everything. Nicely done Studio Pierrot…

Also big thank for FLOW, by far one of the best Japanese music band.This crazy group that makes my body moves on his own! They really got the… flow!! #Badpun (Seriously, how can I put that differently?).

Hector Bellerin has revealed how it felt to hear Arsenal fans sing his name for the first time.

“I remember the first time I heard it - we were playing QPR away. I started hearing something like Bellerin and I thought, ‘Is that really a song for me?’. And then they sang it. I couldn’t believe it. To play away at QPR and hear my song was amazing. The away support is really strong at Arsenal and to hear that they’re cheering for you, singing your name, you can’t really ask for more. That was one of the highlights of my season.”

Bellerin is one of many academy products to make the step up to the first team, and he believes that is why the Arsenal fans have accepted him as one of their own.

“The fans rate that Arsenal don’t just buy players, they make them the players they are,” he said. “Arsenal fans are really proud of that and I think that’s a great thing. When players like Francis, Jack or myself come up, the fans should be proud that their team is doing what they’re doing. That’s a great thing Arsenal do.”

Amazing Grace

I always liked the song
Though, it wasn’t the truth
In my heart
But when my grandma
Played piano
She’d insist I sing along
Something about those nights
When I sang next to her
Stirs in me still
When I hear that song
I think of her
And hum along
So when I went by
Her grave today
I couldn’t help but sing
As I knelt next to her picture
And my voice was shaky
But I held it in
Because grandma
Never let me sing quietly

Hey everyone!

I kinda wanna try a new segment on my blog. I want to dive a bit deeper into the music. So, here is the first installment of “Why I like ‘Song Name’”

Why I like Unfragment (By HanasoumenP/HSP/Hiroyuki ODA/Chu-ji)

When it comes to music genres, I don’t do well in categorizing different songs. I guess in a way it lets me be more focused on the content itself rather than how it fits into a genre.

You have the bass pumping on every beat. 1, 2, 3, and 4. Time signature is 4/4, so that’s pretty much a given. Unfortunately, the beat is very generic. That is expected though. A lot of Miku songs have it this way, so a lot of people could be drawn away just because it’s so common. In order to make a song like this amazing, you gotta make everything else godlike. I like this song because it does exactly that.

How? The key to this song is the piano. The piano has a very simple rhythm. You hear it right away. It pretty much just plays 4 chords. These 4 chords gives this song its life. It drives progression in the song. It supports Miku giving her voice life and emotion.

The star of the show is the melody. I personally don’t like songs that try to bank all of its success on melody alone. A melody needs help. It always doesn’t necessarily have to be from harmony. What makes the melody feel so moving is its conjunction with the piano. 

Miku’s voice totally nails this song. Her voice suits music like this perfectly. I urge you to listen more closely to music. Isolate each piece and hear how all of it is put together. It can make your experience in music much deeper.

Zico’s Older Brother

Can we please acknowledge the fact that Taewoon is completely talented and deserves to be recognized as an individual rapper rather than Zico’s older brother? Not only was he incredible in Speed, he is also amazing solo. This song expresses his annoyance as the constant refferal as “Zico’s brother”. He is not merely someone who should be a second thought or whose videos get comments of “Omg zico’s brother!”, he is an individual with his own talent. He just wants to rap, something he’s wanted to do as a child. And that’s a bit difficult when people don’t see/hear you for you, only for the connection you have.

Many will see and hear: U2′s 5th & final show in Chicago @ UC 7/2/15

I was up top so this is pretty much it. Meh. Not the best, but…I really took this one in so I wasn’t thinking about photos. Very much enjoyed the different location - I was able to see parts of the show I missed in the others (visuals, etc.).

Gloria in the #2 spot again. Ordinary Love, for Mr. Mandela. Bad appeared one more time which I didn’t expect (thank god…just an amazing, amazing song…always). And the closer…*drum roll*…40. Which I’d discussed in a conversation with a person next to me at show #2. Then I forgot about it. And we watched them walk out for the last time, singing, “How looooooong….to sing this soooong…” until they disappeared. Afterward, the happy/sad set in. Happy to be lucky enough to see these 5 shows, sad they’re over. This has been one of my favorite tours over the 25 years I’ve been seeing this band. And I enjoyed talking to so many people from all over. We were lucky that everyone around us was great and were long time fans, too. You know the kind - the ones that notice that Bono changed two words in that one song…. ;).

Someone tossed up a Kane jersey during the encore. He picked it up and said something like, “This is for me? I can keep this?” He’d mentioned the Blackhawks on night one, I think. But that was it - I know some folks thought for sure the Cup would make an appearance. However, it’s started making the individual player rounds, so that ship sailed. 

Good times. Great shows. Thanks, boys.
