Okidoki Artichoky

Can you pronounce the title?

(okey-doukey arti-choky)

I say this quite often. 😀 Maaaaybe, just maybe I’ll film myself saying it, huh?…. Yesterday was kinda awesome, because I dared and opened YouTube editor for the first time. WHOA! 😉 Played with it some time, and all I can say is that – I WANT MORE!

I want to learn editing so bad…. Has anything stop you lately from doing what you want to do? If it did, I get you. I get you real bad. Past three years was/are something I need to wrap my head around in a way that I can learn and respect the balance of my wishes and limitations at the moment. A moment of three years I guess?

I remember hearing this song when you could hear cool music only by listening to radio with a tape ready to record something you like. Or buy audio tapes. I got goosebumps when I heard this song for the first time, I remember that exact moment and situation. I was about 12 and I was laying down in bed I was sharing with my sister in an old small house. I starred at the ceiling and this song gave me hope. I felt I could see the sun he was waiting.  Music does that to me… It can switch my mind towards the good feelz. What do you do to overcome something traumatic for you? What helps you? I honestly want to know… 🙂

My baby blog has been neglected for some time and I can not tell you how much I am grateful right now. I CAN WRITE!!! So freaking awesome… ❤

Now there are “few” things stopping me from going in GO mode, and I respect that. I am just so extremely glad I am not in a hospital anymore and that I finally can watch at computer screen without getting a migraine five minutes after. Yay! I have also ignored social media and let me just tell you how liberated I feel being away from Facebook for 99% of my time. It really changed my priorities and got me off of that “check out FB” routine all the way. Life is better with as less facebooking as possible. Is facebooking a word? Well, now it is 😀 I super duper ignored other social networks that are available too. I was really on with my offline mode – party coz I just couldn’t go online physically and mentally, before you think I have that strong will power hahaha…

Soul remedy

I am honest here on my blog so much. Brutally I think. I do not censor myself, but because I want and tend to focus on overcoming problems rather than “bitching” about them, the tone of my blog is loving. 🙂

In real life I wish I can say more of what I really think, specially on social networks, but I don’t. The reason is simple. I think they (people who I don’t know from the social network) do not deserve my honest opinion and I am dragging myself into a fight with no real knifes. Virtual fights for me are like that, just draining energy and not really resolving anything. Also, I have this sentence I learned somewhere along the way in college with me in many situations. It says: Make your words soft, because you just might have to eat them one day. I think you get the analogy. 🙂 With people in my life I am honest most of the time. The time I am withdrawing from telling them something is when I KNOW my words won’t come through.

On another topic, for some unknown reason, my mind is enjoying in USA country music these days (?). Do not ask, I have no idea… I hardy ever listen to it, just because I am not exposed to it like I am to mainstream pop. But, today I have a song (or two) stuck in my head that are just beautiful.

First one is from Sam Hunt – Take your time. I absolutely love the song and the message and the video. Just… He loves her so much that he doesn’t necessarily want to be with her, but rather for her to be happy.

Second one is something opposite. Summer light flirt/love brings out for me thinking about butterflies in my stomach, summer warm skin and short dresses, looks when the words are not needed because you know…and he knows. 🙂 Also, I know Blake from The Voice USA (I think) so this is cool, watching him “do his thing”.

The last one is also amazing. Girl crush is nothing you think when you hear the title, but reminded me how much homosexuality is still a taboo in this genre of music. Still, beautiful song.

In the light of all of this, I leave you to enjoy and browse more if you please. 🙂

It is all green here (trees and grass) and warm, and I love it. After a period of three weeks of some difficult time for me concerning my health and a lot (like 99%) of it spent in bed I am feeling better and I am looking forward to going more outside, writing here, chilling…  Probably inspiring also, because when you have ups&downs you learn. You constantly learn actually. And it is hard to stay patient and not be frustrated with things not going “as you planned”. It is normal, but I TRY to keep that negativity of frustration and bitterness as further as I can, simply because it does nothing for me. I just feel angry. Me being angry does not change the situation, just changes my mood. And keeps me in that twilight zone of feeling helpless and focusing on the negative. So, I let myself feel what I feel but I try and not let these feeling spiral into a circle that does not help me, at all. I hope you understand what I am saying, because I know everyone goes through something they wish would just pass, or pass by them. But it doesn’t. So, hold your chin up my champions. 😉

Love you ❤

So Fancy hehe

To bright up your day, here I am. 😀 With a cool and funny video remix of Obama “singing” Fancy from Iggy Azalea. Enjoy!

I personally like Obama, he has relaxed and “close-to-people” attitude I love. As far as his political decisions I am not well informed from other part of the world to be judging. 🙂

I’ve got a song stuck in my head

OK, that is not hot news, since I have a song stuck in my head probably all the time. I am the jukebox, nice to meet you. 🙂

But this time, it’s baaaaad.

And it makes me wonder, why does our brain play jokes with us like that? Is it repeating the song which makes it stuck? No, because I heard this mine one or two times and it is IN. So, what is it then?

This is a perfect example of how this process works. 😀 Double plus, it’s from the movie Easy A. 

 

If you are really curious what song is it, it’s Anaconda from Nicki Minaj. DO NOT WATCH THE VIDEO OR LISTEN TO THE SONG, it is hideous and insulting….for everyone. You have been warned.

Today… I’m waiting for the sun to shine…

It is cold and cloudy, rain is falling on and off… It is like most of the July was. The promise of a summer stayed a promise. We had few weeks of nice warm weather when combined everything, but not even close to the real summer. I refuse to think that this is it. 

I can feel the sun on my face, summer breeze and eating watermelon for dinner outside. ❤

I am waiting for the sun to shine.

 

It’s a brand new day
What I wanna be
My whole life
Is waiting for the sun to shine
I take my self outside
Leave my whole life behind
I sit along and wait
For the sun to shine…

A little bit of Croatian music part 2

I couldn’t leave you just with one post… 😉

I bring to you two duets. Classics. 

First one, Vesna Pisarović (who made I think just one or two albums) and Giuliano (Is it a surprise I had a HUUUUGE crush on him? 🙂 )

Second, Hari Rončević and legendary Doris Dragović… Ok, you listen, I’m going to sing this songs as loud as I can 😀

A little bit of Croatian music…

My blogger friend Mara inspired me for doing this. I had an idea in my mind to share with you some Croatian songs for a while now, and I knew that I will do this regularly, but she inspired me to do it today. 🙂

I hope you will like this idea… For me, music is universal and although I mostly listen to foreign singers, I have tons and tons of songs in Croatian that I grew up with and that I love… They are 99% older songs, because today’s scene really doesn’t interest me. They are trying to be “mainstream” and mostly go one of two ways; first trying to please English-based audience they write songs in English and imitate the West, or they try to please equivalent of country music in Balkan and go more east (imitating Serbian singers)

I can’t find myself in either of this categories, so when I listen to Croatian music, I listen to… You can say oldies. 🙂

This is a song called “Flags” from Parni Valjak, a group that I listened to a lot when about 14/15 years old. The lyrics are beautiful, so if anyone is interested I can translate them the best I can.

For now, the chorus:

My flags are always the same color

On them the love is ruling

My flags.. Never on half spear

Love is not giving up

 

This songs is called “Tempera” like paint. From Gibonni… Both songs are Croatian classics and everyone knows them. 🙂

What’s your flava’, tell me what’s your flava’ ;) | TFGSC – Day 27

I know.

My mind, as I said before, goes to the song to connect pretty much… everything. 🙂 So, Daily Prompt is My flavor of ice cream, and I remembered the song from Craig David…

My flavor of ice cream is not something that exists already. It has to be some kind of hybrid. Chocolate with pieces of cherries on one side and lemon with pieces of cookies on the other side. Yumm!

Since I have a mind like Jukebox, this is up for today’s The Feel-good Songs Challenge. I love listening to Postmodern Jukebox on YouTube, they do covers of popular songs in Vintage style and I LOVE IT. 🙂 This is their version of Burn by Ellie Goulding. Enjoy!

I am really looking forward a concert in November hihihihihi… Imagine if Laura Pausini comes! Weeee…

I am enjoying the holiday here and just chillaxin’…

“Tell me when you will be mine…”

I’m so Fansyyyyy :) | The Feel-good SC – Day 21

Yeahhhhh 😀

Felling better. My girl Iggy is something. You maybe heard her songs, but you haven’t heard her story fo’ sure. She wanted to succeeded in hip hop industry, but she was poor and living far away from what she saw as the place she can make her dreams come true, collecting money to go to US. When she was only 16 she took all her money and went to Florida to follow her dreams… She did a lot of crappy jobs to score a record deal, and when she did they told her to “dumb her lyrics down”. Luckily, she manage to get rid of them, but still, people who have the money to finance her records and videos tell her to “simplify her songs”. Bleh. :/

I can’t wait the time when she will be able to truly express herself with lyrics, considering that her role model is 2pac. Even now, she has managed to make it work, mixing “catchy” with real talk…

Plus, she makes amazing tribute to the movie Clueless from 1995 in this video. 🙂
