all time low

I recently posted about a band, Mae. They aren’t completely in my taste, but there is nothing wrong with their music.

I’d like to show you guys a band I really do love. They’re named All Time Low. My favorite song by them is Remembering Sunday. The main singer is Alex Gaskarth.

They have done a remake of Rhianna’s song, Umbrella, if you want to know their style of music.

Here are some other songs by them that I like!

From Nothing Personal:

Too Much


From Put Up or Shut Up:

Running from Lions

From So Wrong, It’s Right

Remembering Sunday (My Favorite ♥)

soft lips

Since it’s winter, our lips generally are less moisturized and as a result may be chapped and unpleasant looking. Getting soft lips is easier than you may think!

The first step would be-drink more water! Your body might be trying to tell you something.

Also, make sure to use chapstick! Don’t use your lips to make your lips unchapped! It’ll make them worse, trust me.

If you think your lips are incurable, try to make a lip scrub. My friend and I created one using regular household ingredients. Take a small container, make the majority of the scrub sugar, add honey, and a little olive oil. Mix lightly for about five seconds, then dip your finger in as a wand and rub over your lips in a circular motion. To remove, use a paper towel and slightly apply pressure. To finish, apply chapstick. Don’t you think your lips are soft now?(:

I’d like to introduce you guys to a really funny guy on YouTube-KevJumba!

Currently he’s in college and he makes videos about many different topics, with his dad. His dad is also very hilarious. ^^He also has a charity channel, JumbaFund.

Here’s one of his videos.

destination:beautiful

Hey everyone! Sorry for not posting in a really long time. I’ve been doing some other things recently.

Anyways! There’s a band named Mae and I think you may like their album, Destination: Beautiful. It’s not new; it was released in 2003.

Here are the songs:

  1. “Embers and Envelopes” – 4:18
  2. “This Time Is the Last Time” – 3:50
  3. “All Deliberate Speed” – 5:09
  4. “Runaway” – 3:45
  5. “Sun” – 5:08
  6. “Last Call”  – 3:35
  7. “Skyline Drive”  – 5:59
  8. “Soundtrack for Our Movie”  – 3:13
  9. “Summertime” – 4:06
  10. “Giving It Away” – 5:27
  11. “Goodbye, Goodnight”– 4:48

The songs I would recommend on this album are Embers & Envelopes, This Time is the Last Time, All Deliberate Speed, Runaway, Last Call, Skyline Drive, Summertime, Giving It Away, and Goodbye, Goodnight. Which are almost all of the songs anyways.

This is another Mae song, not on this album, but I like it anyways. It’s called Breakdown on their album The Everglow.

ttyl, ttfn, l8r g8r

Have you read these books by Lauren Myracle? They’re all written in an IM-style and have to do with regular teenage girl issues.

Personally, I think the books are very funny. The characters seem to really truly be real, and their thoughts and actions don’t seem made up. It wouldn’t be surprising if the events had actually happened.

The Characters*:

Madigan “Maddie” Kinnick, a “wild child” (as described in ttfn), who fiercely loves her friends. Her font is black The Sans. Zoe Barrett, a shy and sweet character who is noted as “afraid to break the rules”. She has black Georgia as a font. Angela Silver, the drama queen who loves attention. Her font is blue Comic Sans. There are other characters who are referred to, but no one besides Maddie, Angela, and Zoe actually IM one another.

paramore: brand new eyes

I recommend the album Brand New Eyes by Paramore.

I believe their are many different types of songs. They go from a song about ignorance to how someone is an exception to a rule. This is Paramore’s third album, their highest selling album, and features Hayley Williams, Josh Farro, Jeremy Davis, Zac Farro, and Taylor York.

There are eleven songs on this album:

1. “Careful” 3:50
2. “Ignorance” 3:38
3. “Playing God” 3:02
4. “Brick by Boring Brick”   4:13
5. “Turn It Off”   4:19
6. “The Only Exception”   4:27
7. “Feeling Sorry” 3:05
8. “Looking Up”   3:29
9. “Where the Lines Overlap”   3:18
10. “Misguided Ghosts” 3:01
11. “All I Wanted” 3:48

My favorite songs from the album are Ignorance, Playing God, Brick by Boring Brick, The Only Exception, Looking Up, and All I Wanted.

Here is Paramore’s Official video for Brick by Boring Brick.
