Goodbye… I guess?

So this is my last post on this blog for probably forever since this is the last one that I am required to write, and let’s be real, I’ve been running out of content since week two. But I’m gonna be a bit sappy right now.

I love how music can create a community. One of the main things that people bond over is the type of music that they listen to. People have gone to concerts and met some of their best friends there. Maybe even their significant other.

Music can be used in so many different ways. People can use music to help them through hard times, music can be used to make people laugh, music can be used to make others think about things that are going on in the world, but music can also help those express things that they couldn’t do before.

Music is poetic. Music is an art. Music is important.

Soundtracks and scores

I also really like movies besides just music. Some songs just make me think of those movies, and the soundtracks or even the scores are what make it so iconic.

My favorite soundtrack, believe it or not, is probably Moana. (wow, who would have thought? it’s not like I’ve written a blog post about that either) I just love the entire soundtrack, the songs make me so happy and I just love the movie in general.

My favorite score however, is probably either Harry Potter or Star Wars. I really enjoy Harry Potter, and I may or may not have just gotten a Harry Potter tattoo, but I feel like the score is just so ICONIC. Star Wars is also good because, again, another iconic score. I really like how not only did John Williams write the score for the movie, but also wrote the Cantina Band song, which gets stuck in my head way more than I would care to admit.

Overall, I feel like soundtracks and scores can either make or break a movie, but of all the ones that I’ve mentioned, I feel like they definitely helped make them what they are.

Paramore has always been one of my favorite bands, but I’ve never gotten into them as much as other people I know have. But for the first time in four years, they’ve released a single AND a music video for said single at the same time.

Their older music is more alternative, especially their first three albums. Riot! is an iconic Paramore album, especially since it was their second album, and many bands go through a sophomore slump.

Hard Times, their newest single, however, still has a bit of edgy to it, but it’s, dare I say, funky? The song definitely has an 80’s theme to it, and the music video matches the song almost perfectly.

I was a bit surprised to hear it at first, but nonetheless, I love it. It’s just not something that I was used to. Their fourth album was definitely a little bit more pop than their previous albums, but the one thing that I like about Paramore is that since they are signed to Fueled by Ramen, they get all of the decision making in what their music is going to sound like. They’re not forcing themselves to sound more pop because that’s what is popular, but they are doing what they enjoy.

Overall, I would recommend the song, it’s so catchy, the lyrics are great, the music video is great. 100% listen to it if you like any type of 80’s pop.

songs that never fail to make white people turnt

So……  I found a playlist.

The playlist was titled “Songs That Never Fail to Make White People Turnt,” so that’s where this post is heading.

I went over each song and I was kind of embarrassed because of how true it was. I know almost all of the words to every single song that is on there, and I just felt like it wasn’t something that I should have been proud of.

These are lowkey the types of songs that you listen to when you’re with all of your family and everyone is either camping or driving, and you just need something that you know that everyone knows the words to. Or even in situations such as when you’re around people that you don’t know very well, and you need something to break the ice.

Anyways enough talking. Here’s the white people playlist:

Post concert depression

Post concert depression is real. Don’t fight me on this.

Basically, if you live under a rock, post concert depression is after you go to a concert, and all you can think of and all you want to do is go back to said concert. It’s really a pain in the ass.

I’ve been to over 50 concerts, so I feel like I know exactly what it feels like. I’m not too sure how other people feel about it, but when I know that I’m supposed to be working on a school project, or I’m doing something at work, if I have a song in my head, that’s all I’ll be able to think about. I tend to always make a playlist afterwards, and right now, I only have about two on my Spotify because I don’t want to end up with a million of them.

All I really end up doing, is pretty much listen to the setlist over and over and over again to a point where I end up getting annoyed. There’s only one playlist that I still listen to, to this day, that I absolutely love.

Here’s the playlist from Warped Tour 2016:

An extremely hypocritcal review

Do you remember my first post where I said that I wasn’t going to do any reviews. Yeah, I lied.

So I went to a concert on Sunday, and it was SO GOOD. It was one of the best concerts that I had ever been to. In case you didn’t see my last post, I saw the band State Champs, and opening for them was Against The Current, With Confidence, and DON BROCO.

When I went to the concert, I had never heard of DON BROCO before, and honestly, I regret it. I was extremely surprised by how good they were. I came home from the concert, and I almost immediately listened to their album Automatic on Spotify. I was so surprised because normally I don’t have high expectations for openers, especially because I’ve seen some that weren’t anything special before, but their performance was so impressive.

The next band that came on was With Confidence. I may be a little biased because they are one of my favorite bands, but they were so good. They were extremely lively and they looked like they were having a good time. And it’s always special when the band looks like they’re having fun as well.

Against The Current was the last opener of the concert before State Champs. I have heard of them before, but I had never seen them live before. I was extremely impressed. The lead singer’s voice had sounded almost exactly as it does on the album. Their performance was extremely lively and entertaining and I would definitely see them again.

State Champs were the headliners of the tour, and they did not disappoint. They’ve always been great live, but since it was the beginning of the tour, they were still extremely energized and excited for the entire tour. They’ve never been bad live as far as I’ve seen them. The lead singer of the band is probably one of the best lead vocalists in the industry that I’ve seen.

Overall, it was a great concert, and I would recommend anyone to go on this tour, because it is extremely entertaining, and all of the bands are extremely talented.

I’m going to a concert this week, so OBVIOUSLY I’m super excited.

I’m seeing State Champs, With Confidence, and Against the Current in Chicago at the Concord Music Hall, so it should be super fun! I love all of those bands and I’ve seen them all before, so I know what to expect, and I’m super excited!

I love a lot of the songs that are being played on this tour, and I’m SO SO SO EXCITED. It just hit me that I’m seeing them live this week, and I kind of forgot until I heard the setlist.

I found all of the setlists of the bands, and decided to create a playlist. So here’s we gooooooooo:

7 things to do while preparing for a concert

I’ve seen over 60 different bands in my life live, so I feel like I’m somewhat qualified to say these things.

1. Figure out who you want to see

Literally the easiest step, don’t go see someone you don’t care about.

2. Find friends to go with

Concerts are more fun with friends, BUT if you’re the only one out of your friends that likes this band, go and make friends there! Usually since people will have similar tastes in what you like, it will be easy to make friends.

3. Buy the tickets

Easy enough, you can’t get into the venue unless you have the tickets, just remember that tickets usually have fees, so printing out your tickets will probably be the cheapest route.

4. Do research about the venue

Find out if there’s parking! Find out if there’s not! Is there a place where you can check a bag? Is it wheelchair accessible? Can you bring food or water in? Is it general admission or are there seats?

5. Have a gameplan

Find out when doors open, and leave whenever you want to get in line. If it’s general admission, you might want to get there earlier to get a good spot, if you have actual seats, it doesn’t really matter what time you get there.

6. Pick a place in the venue to meet in case anyone gets lost

If someone leaves to go to the bathroom, you will want a place to meet up. There will be a lot of people, and it will be loud, so it may be hard to find or call someone.


Concerts are supposed to be fun! Don’t worry about making a fool of yourself, or anything, just enjoy the music!

Yeah I’m a feminist, and I don’t care what you have to say about it.

Music is a great way to show how proud you are of being a woman. Woman have obviously gone through some shit, but we’ve always seemed to power through it.

One of those is by producing music that promotes your beliefs. There are tons of music festivals all around the world just for women. It is ran by women, with women performers, and there are women attending.

I feel like in a society where we are still very music under the patriarchy’s rule, music is a great way for intersectional feminists to share their beliefs and their struggles with the world.

Not only are there different women that can express how they feel, but they can also inspire other women to express how they feel.

Here’s a playlist that I’ve made with all women artists either sharing their problems as a woman, or making other women feel empowered.

Feeling g00d

Certain songs can put me into a better mood. I know that songs especially from the 80’s, or upbeat songs, can make me feel better, or make me happier than I already am.

I don’t know what it is, but for some reasoning, I feel like this is a common theme between others.

I especially like to listen to 80’s songs because that is what I grew up on. My dad used to listen a lot to these songs because that is what was popular when he was my age, so that’s what I would listen to in the car whenever I was with him.

Even songs can remind you of good things, and can bring back good memories.

Here are some songs that never fail to put me in a good mood.
