R5 Concert Movie and Thoughts About Bands

Yes…I can admit I would have NEVER thought I would like a band like R5….why? I don’t know it never occurred to me, and mostly because I never really payed attention to them.

Anyway (since you know I’m a huge fan of Dancing With The Stars), I knew Riker was in a band with his family and out of curiosity I chose to listen to their music and with the help of my friend Rachael (I met at PlaylistLive) I became a fan.

So they had a one night movie showing concert footage and the band talking about themselves in general.

So if you may or may not know, most of my friends stare at me like….’Why do you like these pop bands and stuff?’ – Also the fact that Disney channel promotes them….doesn’t help, since they are seen as a ‘kid’ or ‘tween’ band. That’s actually one of the reasons I stayed away from them. Until I realized the youngest was 19 and the oldest is 23…I’m like “Wow they’re around my age.”

Honestly, it’s normal to feel awkward to like a certain band that everyone will automatically judge you for it. I’m not saying liking R5 I will get judged massively (cause I won’t) but other bands like One Direction, 5Sos, etc…

I think it might shock people that there is an older generation out there that genuinely enjoy those bands’ music (and not just crushing on them), and it might also shock you that the older generation that listens to them…..DO NOT scream and flail their arms every time someone mentions the band.

We’re normal humans that just so happen to like these ‘main stream’ bands but sadly we are categorized as ‘fangirls’ or something.

Throughout the last three years or so I would listen to indie and super unknown artists (there’s nothing wrong with that cause I still listen to them today), but after a time in my life when I was feeling really down…I realized my slow indie music wasn’t helping. So I went back to my roots and found a playlist of fun pop songs…and you guessed it these artists were on there.

From that moment on I realized I shouldn’t judge a band or artist by their age, fan base, or who sponsors them, as long as YOU LIKE the music then that’s all that matters. 🙂

Btw I’m a collage student so I’m not that old but I’m not a young teenager anymore…just thought that clarifies things.

Some R5 songs I love 🙂

Movies Tag, Hot Topic, Downton Abbey, and New Book

Hello everyone. I hope you are having a good day…or night…or afternoon?

So if you know this or not Hot Topic was having a ‘Hot Mess’ sale where they sell really cheap stuff and I couldn’t help myself so I bought a couple of things…

 

On the left is a key necklace and on the right is a cool binocular necklace. 

Sadly you can’t actually see through the binocular necklace 😦

This is a cool cartoon batman with the joker hoodie I also bought. On my recent YouTube vid I’m wearing it:

Last but not least I bought at the bookstore (not hot topic just to make it clear) This Shattered World which is the second book of the Starbound series. The first book was called These Broken Stars which lucky for you I reviewed. You can watch it here.

I’m very excited to start reading this gem and you can expect a review about it once I’m done reading it lol

 

Anyway if you’re a fan of Downton Abbey (like I am), I reviewed the first episode of season 5 here. 😀

Well that’s about it for today. Have a good weekend 😀

Merry Christmas (Eve)!

Hey guys Merry Christmas (or Eve…depending where you live).

I’ve been sick the last couple of days with a cold…today I collected myself and got dressed. Mostly cause I had a family dinner…ah yes that time of the year when we see extended family members that we only see once a year and it’s awkward when we do see them…

Anyway I did a quick Christmas Tag here’s the vid:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 😀

Remember to be thankful for the things, people, and experiences in your life…everything and everyone has helped shaped the person you have and are becoming 🙂 Everyday is a blessing and be happy.

Love you guys. God Bless!

The One by Kiera Cass Book Review

Wow I can’t believe the Selection series is coming to an end. The One (which is the third and final book) has already come out and I am beyond happy for the ending and where Kiera Cass has taken this series.

If you have no idea what the heck The Selection book is about then read my review on it:

THE SELECTION BOOK REVIEW

THE ELITE (BOOK 2) BOOK REVIEW

Without further delay here is my video review of The One:

The Selection series came out in 2012  and I have grown with these books and I will definetly miss these characters and the wonderful world Kiera Cass has built.

These books have been a comfort to me. I felt like I was transported into the book. With my fractured leg and having to go through the healing process reading The One has help me get my mind off of it.

Maybe in the future I’ll do an in-depth review of the Selection series and talk about the characters and the story world more without having to worry about spoilers.

I remember I found out about The Selection before it even came out. Barnes and Noble had a pre-sale and I loved the book cover. I checked out the author and thought she was cool so when the book came out I bought it and read it in one day. When the Elite came out I did a release party video, I was super happy about that book (but sadly I deleted the video) and then I did a book review.

Overall I recomend this book to anyone and everyone, especially girls I think they’ll enjoy it whether you’re a tomboy or a girly girl. America (main character) is so fiesty and hard headed that I think all of us wish to be like that at one point or another.

Thanks for reading!
