I'll come out and say it, I don't really have a good post title. There.

 Okay. Due to internet problems--and my own constant laziness, I haven't been doing much blogging. But I was reading all day yesterday, basically, so I was doing something.

  So today's post is going to be different than what I have been previously posting. That meaning: it will probably be full of music videos and maybe Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I really don't know.

This song is called "The Bells of New York City." It by Josh Groban. I few weeks ago, I got the "Illumintaions" album from the library. I know that it was an earlier one, but I am not sure what year. Anyway, this was my favorite song from it besides, "War at Home."

I like the part of War at Home when he gets to the chorus, the vocals are awesome! The lyrics, if I can remember correctly are these: "You see these hands they're bruised and brown."

Now this is the lyric video for a song called "Poison and Wine" by my new favorite duo ever, The Civil Wars. Why don't I post the official video? Well,  it's a fine video--I check mostly every video before I post it, ya know, try to keep this blog mostly G-rated--but when I posted it, it landed on a... weird spot. SO! If you want to see it, it's in this link. It's a fine video, as I said before. I was hoping that they would do a video like this one. I like the simpler ones with the piano and guitar. It's so much better than what an acted something or another would be.

Maybe one of the facts here is that I cannot play the piano or guitar...even thought I REALLY WANT TOO. Hah. I do have a guitar...but my fingers weren't made for fretting. That's what my mind is for. :D (See, that was a joke.)

Then it's like, "you really gotta get better with the jokes, Mutant."

"I'm laughing on the inside."

I will give a medal to whoever gets that reference.

Okay, so, it's a theoretical medal.

Fine, it was Molly Mahoney and Henry in "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium."

Awesome movie...

Anyway, I went off track there.

Isn't funny that Word will spell-check Aragorn, but it doesn't spell-check Bilbo Baggins? I thought it was funny.

Again, I went of track.

Bad girl. Bad. ~smack~

 Then there was this certain thing I wanted to post because I thought it was incredibly epic. Now, I am not so much into pop/rock music and the like, but I am open to any kind of music. The song in this music video totally worked with the whole theme of the show and whoever made this video did a stupid awesome job. I have never seen movement and music combined so well...

I found it on a blog that I think I have posted before. (BTW this is the site.) So, this is what he had to say about it.

I was beyond impressed. Radioactive is the type of song that really gets your adrenaline rushing and the message within really compares well with The Legend of Korra’s storyline. All the sound effects and animation clips fit together well and it looked like the creator really put a lot of time and effort into it.
What he was talking about was a little thing called Legend of Korra AMV (Radioactive).

When I saw this the first time, I kinda chilled over. You know, like you do, when something is completely and utterly awesome. Then, when it was over, and I could talk again, I declared that I was going to blog it.

And I will continue to sing this song for the rest of the day.  

I don't know. I love Legend of this is just as epic as anything could get.

Man, it's awesome. I think I have watched it 7 times, maybe?

 Well, I think that does it for this post.
I shall be back.

Have an awesome day.


  1. Word is pretty selective about what it spell checks. And sometimes it's just plain wrong.

    I tried guitar as well. My fingers were too large for the fretboard... so I stayed with piano.

    Aw, yay, the Civil Wars! They're from my area, so we're very proud of them. They even did a concert last year here. It sold out before we could get tickets, of course. Such is life.

    In Pace Christi,


    1. I noticed that! It gets the grammar wrong sometimes...I mean, I am not perfect with my grammar, but I expected Word to be.

      That's what I think. My fingers are too short and not flexible. I need to restore the piano we have before I can start playing it.

      I simply *adore* The Civil Wars. All the lyrics to every song just mean so much...different meanings to different people. I love it. "I've Got This Friend" is one of my favorite.

      I would love to go to one of their concerts...I actually believe that they are going to have a *second* record.
