MODERN rock???

Posted in music with tags , , , , , , , , on October 28, 2010 by Purple

First of all, I apologize for being gone for so long.  It’s been so…you know, long. haha  Anyway, I’ve been looking up music on the internet.  I’m mostly into pop, rap (some, depends lol), and rock.  Pop is pretty basic, and rap, how can you miss it? lol  But rock, ugh.  It’s been abused and misused lately. haha  On this site I use called Playlist, the site made a playlist of “Modern Rock”, and I thought, okay, something modern, seems cool.  When I listen to a few, they’re slow and sound like 60’s music.  Oh God. haha  I’m more into the hard rock I suppose, where it’s loud, a lot of action going on, it sounds dark and deep and empowers you.  “modern” rock just made me feel like I was listening to jazz.  O.O  A year ago or so, I used to enjoy Three Days Grace.  They have depressing songs, but they’re empowering, so I enjoyed them.  Now I’m tired of feeling depressed (SUCH a shocker, someone not liking depression haha), so I’ve been listening to Hollywood Undead.  Three Days Grace has some non-depressing songs, but not much that I enjoy.  Hollywood Undead’s songs are empowering, a lot of musical action, and the words aren’t depressing.  Sure, they swear quite a lot, which I don’t approve much, but besides that, they are a good ROCK band.  As for “modern” rock?  NOT ROCK, PLEASE NO!  lol  Here’s the link for the playlist of songs:

http://www.playlist.com/playlist/20834435339/standalone

It has 40 songs, and I only enjoyed 10 (at the most) of them.  What do you think of these?

High Schools Are Slacking On What They’re Famous For…Actual Fights

What happened to the good old days where crowds of excited and screaming students cheered and booed during fist fights? I loved those days, and although I don’t want to be in one, I was looking forward to High School to watch some great action. During today’s lunch period, a crowd of High Schoolers gathered near the cafeteria and made a big commotion. What for you ask? Of course, a fight. But wait! There’s more! It’s a dance fight! Oh God, kill me now. Who the hell would get excited over a dance fight? Yes, it is entertaining, in its own way, but why would there be an immense crowd, with screaming and excited students? Some High Schooler was actually video taping it. What-the-hell? High School is really getting lame now. A dance fight is cool, but don’t get me riled up just for a dance fight. Now that’s just annoying. The hilarious part about it all(if it isn’t already clear)? One of our school security guards came by (10 minutes after it started, mind you) and just watched. When one of the dance fighters hit the other, she was like, “No hitting”. Oh God, so lame. And I’ve never seen an actual fist fight before either. I’m so dissapointed. Have you guys ever seen one before? I bet it was wonderful. I hope you share the experience with me from a comment. By the way, I’m not even sure if there’s another way to communicate anyway on this site. lol

Is My Band Teacher Going Crazy Or Am I Actually Getting Better?

As you might know, maybe not, I play the flute, and yesterday, I had a test. I don’t think I’m the least bit good at playing the flute. Well, at least I can play individual notes, unlike some of my classmates, but I don’t want to be “not the worst”, I want to be good. So anyway, whenever I have tests during Band class, my heat gets heated up. Seriously, I can feel the heat around my skin. lol I was like that the whole time, and when it was my turn too. If you didn’t already know, in band classes tests work with one person going at a time. So it was my turn, and I practiced before class started and I thought I wasn’t that bad, but I got nervous and when I started playing, my mind went blank. I was doing okay, but when I hit the rest, the next notes were off the metronome. Yeah, you heard me right, I had to play by the beat of a metronome. Actually not that hard, when it’s played slowly, which thank god it was. I stopped then and said out loud, “Aw, I had it.” I was going to ask for a redo, but my teacher let me play from the rest. I did okay after that. But God, was I pissed from my pause. I thought I did horribly all together, but I actually got 100%. Maybe my Band teacher was on drugs or something. lol I would’ve been okay with a 90% or something, but he gave me all 100. Insanity. I don’t think I actually did that well. Who knows? I liked playing the test song though. It had new notes that we just learned the other class period though, so I was worried. During my practice, before class, I made a system on how to change keys during the song, and I thought I had it down. My trip after the pause pissed me off. Thank God for good days. I’m actually enjoying playing my flute now adays in class. It isn’t so bad, but maybe that’s because I really am playing better, who knows.
My older sister has been playing the guitar for months now, and she’s wonderful. I don’t know when she was ever bad, except maybe the first week. But after that, total success. She says it’s practice, and maybe she’s right. I don’t know. I still can’t believe how well I’m improving. I’m enjoying playing my flute more than ever now.
What kind of instruments do you enjoy? Any you hate? I’ve heard people tease the banjo, but seriously, what’s so wrong with it??? I wouldn’t take it, cause it looks so ameatur, but besides that, I don’t think it’s so bad. Do you guys play any instruments? The flute was my first actual instrument I’ve played, proffessionally. I played a plastic flute in 3rd grade with my Music teacher, but it wasn’t for the whole year, so not so severe and proffessional. If you play an instrument, love one, or hate one, come share it with me on a comment now. See ya. :)

What’s up y’all!? I don’t know about anyone else, but I got just this week of school, and then Spring break!!! Yeah baby! haha It’s just one week, but I guess that’s a blessing on its own huh? Well anyway, my school has a free dress day at the end of every month (supposed to anyway lol), but this week it’s free dress week! I’ve been checking out the different cool shirts around my school, and then I started thinking about some crazy shirts I’ve seen around the place. Like these:

This is the first I've ever seen

haha I bet all guys think like that. There's even a girl's shirt, with the girl frowning lol

One of my classmates actually wore this in class. ...0.o If I tried thinking of a comment, I wouldn't have time to run the f*** away

hehe I wonder if she actually agrees with that shirt? ;)lol I wonder which sex made this one up? ;) lol

No more will fit the page. lol Oh well, there’s other funny ones out there if you just take a look. I have a shirt with the Eve. L girl on it and she says “Mischievous?” There’s also a heart at the bottom with the words “Eve. L”. Guess who got me that shirt? My aunty. *crickets* Well, I was never ecstatic for her anyway. lol Just kidding.  So, go out and see if you can find shirts like these, or even worse ones (although I don’t know what would be worse than that smiley one. 0.o lol Well find some and comment ‘em on here, and tell me which ones you like and which ones you aren’t so, like me with my aunty, “ecstatic” about. lol Well anyways, I’ve seen numerous marriage ones other than the one I showed, so that could be an option. I wanna see what kinds of crazy shirts are out there, so get to it!
p.s. Remember:
Smile if you’re not wearing undies ;)

Everything by Lifehouse Religion Skit

Wow, I haven’t been on in almost a month or so huh? Sorry for being gone for so long. I couldn’t think of anything to post, but now there’s something that got me hooked. The religious skit played with the song Everything by Lifehouse is so enlightening. My church did this skit one day a week ago or something and I just cried. I couldn’t not cry. lol Here’s a skit that was recorded in 2006 and that I believe is the first skit ever:

It’s exactly like what my church did, with the cutting,God being pushed, and God calling the girl to him. I think God calling her is super important because some skits don’t have him doing that and it just ruins everything. People need to realize that God doesn’t just want us to find him, he’s trying to get us to follow him, and that’s what I learned from this skit. It’s so empowering, I just had to cry when God held all the bad things away from the girl. If you haven’t watched this skit already, watch it now from this video and comment on how it affected you and why. Well, it’s 12:21am where I am, so I’m going to sleep now. I spent all of last night watching the skit too.

The Japanese Language

I’d first like to apologize for being gone for a week. I couldn’t come up with anything, or remember what I had planned. ^^ But today for school I had to choose next year’s classes. I really want to take a language class, and I’m greatly interested in the Japanese culture anyway, so Japanese is something I want to learn. My family wants me to choose Spanish, but…I don’t know. It just seems kind of…something everyone else is doing, so why not me, for the hell of it? I want to make my own decisions, and Japanese interests me so much.
So Japanese is my first choice, then there’s some others, but I don’t think you want me to blab on about it all (unless you beg me to ^^ just kiddin) Like I said, the Japanese culture is very interesting to me, and the language isn’t that bad either. It sounds empowering, and, of course, since I only know English, it sounds distant, and unknown. But not in that, what is that? Kind of thing, like Spanish, or those other ones. I think Philipeno chat sounds super annoying. Spanish is cool, but Japanese seems more distant, more unknown and intrigueing. Plus, to write the language is making art itself. Look at this:

The top letters (Japanese writing) means Inuyasha

It’s from my favorite anime, Inuyasha. I’m not sure what one symbol means, but with the Japanese class, maybe one day I will. Ha. It seems that my choices for classes nowadays have become based on this one anime. Truly incredible, unbelievable even. I chose band, my flute, in the hopes that I could one day play music from this anime. Now I’m taking a language class in the hopes that I can be better aquainted with this anime once I complete the class. Mmm…Are you into anything that has given you the drive to make a decision that could change your life? And classes aren’t something to fool around with, yet I’m making rash decisions based on it. Hehe I can’t help myself, I’m too in love with the anime. Speaking of which, I’m gonna go now and watch the newest episode now.
shonensunday.com is the place to go for the newest episodes, now called Inuyasha: The Final Act. There’s other animes there as well. I’m off now! Goodbye! :D

Pokémon

This old baby started in, what, 1996? Ha. That’s when I was born! Cool. No wonder we’re meant to be together. I just love pokemon. Out of all the cartoons out there like it, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Digimon, and the new Bakugan, none compares to my love for pokemon. I just love playing the games and watching the shows. They’re so awesome. And the theme song. Ah, I can still remember it. “I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was, To catch them is my real test, To train them is my cause, I will travel across the land, Searching far and wide, Each pokemon to understand, The power that’s inside, Pokemon! Gotta catch ‘em all!, It’s you and me, I know it’s my destiny, Pokemon! Oh, you’re my best friend, In a world we must defend, Pokemon!  Gotta catch ‘em all, Our hearts so true, Our courage will pull us through, You teach me and I teach you, Pokemon! Gotta catch ‘em all! Pokemon!”
Ah, how that brings back memories. That song is so powerful, to me at least. It gives me the strength to keep playing my Pokemon games even though I loose for like five times in a row. lol I can’t really say which pokemon I like the most though. I like quite a lot. Like Pikachu, Squirtle, Charmander, Vulpix, Bulbasaur, Snorlax, Grovyle, Torchic, Butterfree, Tokipe, Celebi, and so, so much more. They’re all so great. And Ash, Brock, and Misty are cool too. When I was little, I got three videos with some episodes, and one movie, the 2000 one. I forget the title, but I loved that movie. The flute song was beautiful. I want to play it, now that I reminded myself of it. hehe It’s so amazing. Working hard, taking care of pokemon, it’s all so awesome. I love them all.

Some Pokemon (but there's MUCH much more)
