…:: Music Monday: K-POP!!!! ::…

Posted in Music, Music Monday, Pop Culture on May 14, 2012 by Yamil

Hi everyone! This is my first Music Monday in a while. I’ve been busy with school (I’m about to graduate! Only 6 more months and I’ll have my BA in English Literature!) and therefore have not had much time to put into my blog. Yesterday, following a huge finals related panic attack, I decided to upload a poem and I remembered how much I enjoyed blogging so I decided to give it a try again. Probably won’t be able to post much during the next week but soon I’ll be posting more if I can finally force myself to commit to it. Now I’ll go into Music Monday which is the actual purpose of the post.

It’s been a while since I posted something in my blog and for that reason I decided to do a quick music post. Let’s all reflect on the impending death of the music industry and the birth of a new generation of “artists”. (I’m still trying to figure out if I would prefer Justin Bieber or Rebecca Black)

I announced a few weeks ago that Shortcut To Last was about to release their new video. It took longer but it’s finally here and it’s f#$%!*g awesome!!! It’s called “It’s Not Enough” So take a look and remember to visit their MySpace, subscribe to them on YouTube, follow them on Twitter, and if you like them, get their album on iTunes. Enjoy!

Music, Music, Music!!!

I took the liberty of stealing this idea from my friend Justin a.k.a. Eternal Opus (Check his amazing blog here.) and I’m sure he won’t mind. =) Basically I want to share with you the kinds of music I like and hopefully you will also leave me your music suggestions. Life would be boring without music!

Fall of Love

Posted in poetry, Pop Culture, Uncategorized on July 10, 2010 by Yamil

I lay in the floor
surrounded by walls of steel.
I no longer can breath
for the oxygen has become as dense
as in the coldest and highest mountains.
No longer can I picture a bright, comforting future
for I lost everything when you said goodbye.
I had spent my life looking
for the person that would finally love me,
and when I succeeded,
you just ripped my heart appart.
I lost my sense of time,
I lost my will to live.
I let myself fall to the blackest pit.
But one day I’ll climb back.
For life must continue.
One day you shall realize
the mistakes of your actions
and when you come back
asking for forgiveness,
it will be my time to shine.

Spring Breeze – Haiku

Spring Breeze
Running with the breeze
is the sweet scent of flowers,
as sweet as your love.

Just Vigilant or Simply Paranoid

Recently I was going through the internet searching for information about my favorite band Paramore. While searching I stumbled on an article called “Paramore’s “Brick by Boring Brick”: A Song about Mind Control”. My usual curiosity got the best of me and I clicked on the link thinking that maybe I was about to read an intelligent article about the symbolism of the video which is in my opinion one of the best Paramore has ever made. I can’t even describe my surprise when I started reading it and found out that it was only and article trying to stain Paramore’s name and image by cataloguing it as a group that is involved in brain washing schemes and evil ways. Knowing that the guys of Paramore are really open about their religious beliefs I was pretty sure this article was extremely misguided. As I kept reading it I noticed how the author took the simplest things and made a total analysis on how evil they were and how they represented the occult.
