Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (feat. Miranda Lambert) - Same Love

And I can't change, even if I tried; even if I wanted to.

Hello. :D

This song is probably one of the most inspiring songs for gay rights that I've ever heard.

If anything about gays, lesbians, or bisexual people offends, insults, hurts, or harasses you in any way, please feel free to skip over this post and read the previous ones. Please and thank you.

The song isn't very heavy with bass beats, but a simple background beat with Miranda Lambert's elegant vocals and the infamous duo, Ryan Lewis and Macklemore.
To me, this song reminds me to not throw words around, because they might hurt more than they seem.
If you call someone a 'faggot' or 'nigger' for fun, they might not take it that way. Perhaps this sounds very elementary, but often times this little detail in life is overlooked, and more people are hurt everyday.

This song really shines a light on how discriminated gays and lesbians are.
I'm not gay or lesbian, but I do think I understand how it's hard to 'come out of the closet' due to how society treats those people.
Have you read the YouTube comments lately? "Man, that's gay" gets dropped on the daily.
That is true.
And I can't change, even if I tried; even if I wanted to.
Why should they change? They already found it challenging enough to admit their sexuality, knowing the judgment and social acts they would have to go through.
A world so hateful, some would rather die than be who they are.
Many people judge someone the moment they see them. I do that a lot. I'll look at a person on the street who is begging for money, and I subconsciously move a little farther away from them when I'm walking past them.
The suicide rates have gone up recently. People throw themselves off buildings due to the economy, sadness of loss of a family member, or something that has shaken them so badly, it's out of the range of anything they've ever experienced.

I feel I've written quite a lot.
So, I will leave you with this thought.

What you actually say can cause more damage than what you think you've said.
That might not make so much sense, but think of it this way - how you say it and how you've perceived it can be two completely different things.

Have a good day or night, wherever you are. I'm heading to sleep.

If I was gay, I'd think hip-hop hates me. Have you seen the YouTube comments lately?

Ronald Jenkees - Throwing Fire

Yep, it's a song without lyrics. Otherwise, you would have read some of the lyrics I really liked. :D
But it doesn't matter that this song doesn't have lyrics! It's awesome, upbeat, and pure amazing.

Ronald Jenkees is a talented musician who plays by ear. He played in high school marching band, where he tried reading sheet music but went back to mainly playing by ear.

He currently has three CDs out as of 2012 - Ronald Jenkees (2007), Disorganized Fun (2009), and Days Away (2012).

This piece, Throwing Fire, is from the CD Disorganized Fun.

Although this video is quite old (2008), it's still catchy and definitely epic.
I play the keyboard too, but to me, those who play by ear are more talented than those who read sheet music, like me. I can play by ear, but by default, I'd rather play from sheet music. Sadly. :<

I listen to this track when I play MapleStory, hehe. <3

Enjoy. Have a great day!

Death Cab for Cutie - What Sarah Said

And it came to me then that every plan is a tiny prayer to Father Time.

Hey there, guys. ^.^


Anyways... Hehe.

This song is a song about loss. It's not an upbeat, peppy song. It's a moderately slow, sad song with piano in it. (I had to mention that, because I play piano, haha.)

I can't outright state WHAT this song means, because it's only my opinion. You have your own opinions, and you have your own interpretations of this song.

But this song involves hospital death. If you don't like hospital death, then you might just want to quickly skim over the lyrics and see if you want to listen to this song. If you don't, it's fine with me.

Death Cab For Cutie is a pretty cool band; they're my favorite at the moment. :D

Enjoy the song!

So who's gonna watch you die?

My Notes/Commentary:

(About time you posted Ahri!) I know I know..School is a butt load of work..Don't blame me! I'm currently updating everything so please bare with me! I completely appologize so by that, I'll do two posts here and two on my other blog! Sounds good? Hope so..

But anyways.. WHERE ARE MY VOCALOID FANS! I have now added a Hatsune Miku song and I will soon put up the Kagamine Twins! I, myself, am not a big fan of Miss Hatsune but doesn't mean I hate her music right?

Basically, this song is about people who FAKE being depressed and show EVERYONE that they are and Miku is basically thelling them "You wanna die? Go ahead and die. No one would care the slightest if you died. So stop this and live life to its fullest..!" I completely agree with Miku here. There is a big difference between depressed people and fake depressed people. The real depressed don't show it and only tell their close friends or no one at all. Fakes show it to everyone. To the fake depressed, I shall sum up this song for you right now. We know you're faking it because you're always happy and when you being to not be noticed, you become all sad and start cutting and showing everyone. You run to everyone and tell them and you keep saying "I hate life" "You don't understand this at all!" "Leave me alone!!" But really you're the one that came to us, didn't tell us a single detail about it, and everyone hates life in their own way so shut up. .-. Stop being so 'depressed' and live life to it's fullest!

Wow..such a long rant about it huh? I know this song seems so mean but at the end, the last line is "Stop doing this and live life to it's fullest!" So it's not a bad song if you think about it like that. Miku is just pissed that everyone is pretending to be depressed and keeps asking her for her help but end up telling her to leave them alone turning Miku to get mad like this. I under stand this a lot. Believe me. I can tell the difference between real depressed and fake depressed. Kinda obvious if you ask me.

Don't hate me after this rant. I just said my opinion and everyone should be able to say their opinion. OKay. I'll get started on my next rant which will be out...TONIGHT!! CYAAA~!^-^
