For Some Reason, I Found Myself Listening to THESE

“Call Me Maybe”
by Carly Rae Jepsen

“Payphone”
by Maroon 5 featuring Wiz Khalifa

And for some reason, they both have something to do with A PHONE.  Hahaha!

On a serious note, it got me thinking why these songs are hits…  And I guess just like every song, it’s because people can relate to their lyrics.  Not to mention, groove to their melodies! 😉

But let’s start with “Payphone.  How exactly can people relate to it?  Okay, the music video’s out of the question.  The whole concept of it and its relation to the song are still a mystery to me!  This version is actually better, in my opinion:

But anyway, if you’re going to ask me, the part that really got my attention was this:

“If happy ever after did exist, I would still be holding you like this.  And all those fairytales are full of s*it; one more f*cking love song, I’ll be sick…  I’m at a payphone.”

And it wasn’t just the “happy ever after” and “fairytales” that made me press the replay button again and again, it’s the way it was written — in second conditional (excuse the grammarzilla in me) and with straight-to-the-point-no-excuses swearwords!  It’s as if the writer really tried to express both the LOVE and PAIN he/she felt, feels, and will feel!  And for me, he/she succeeded in doing that exactly. 😀

As for “Call Me, Maybe, how do people relate to it?  Hmm…  To make it easier, let’s make the question how do I relate to it?  Hahaha!

Well, I’ll let you in on a secret: Ms. Jepsen‘s hit song is actually one of my fantasies when I travel!  You know, go to a foreign place, spot that kind of guy, approach him, give him my number even though we both know it’s craaazy, but then what’s done’s done, so the ball’s already in his court and it’s up to him whether or not he’ll do the next move.  Call me.  But maybe.  Tapos ang kanta! 😛

That.  And well, the song’s truly catchy!  Even YOU can’t deny that!  Mwahahahahaha!

And there goes another rambling from yours truly. =))  To end this, I just want to say that I also found myself WATCHING these.  Enjoy!!!

my fellow Lasallians‘ take on “Call Me, Maybe”

ANIMO!

I wish she stuck with the original swearwords, though.
Instead of changing them to “it” and “stupid” respectively…  If you know what I mean! 🙂

SirKevinMartin Says…

What do you do when you have a friend who makes awesome videos, entertains those who watch THOSE videos, and finally gets the recognition he so truly deserves?

You blog about it.  Well, at least “I” do.  Hahaha!

So if you still haven’t watched the video “Shit Spoiled Filipino Teenagers Say” by my friend Kevin Martin Vitug (a.k.a. SirKevinMartin), I say go watch it NOW!  And if you have watched it already, I say go watch it AGAIN!!! 😀

For more awesome videos, check out Kev‘s YouTube channel here.

Wala lang.  I just really had to blog about Kev…  Fangirl na fangirl lang talaga tuloy ang peg ko!  Wahahahaha! =))

with Kev 🙂

So to Sir Kevin Martin, just so you know…

I’M SOOO PROUD OF YOU!!!  Ikaw na talaga!!!
Keep up the GREAT work and good luck sa future “career” —
Oomeganon talaga!  Heehee.  ILY!!! 😉

Yours  truly,

“Wilt thou wed me?”

WEDDINGS.  They’re expensive, stressful, time-consuming…

This is actually my sister when she walked down the aisle... ♥

…but most importantly, they bring TWO PEOPLE together — two people who are so full of LOVE they actually give Romeo and Juliet a run for their money…  two people who are selfless enough to spend and share their lives with one another for as long as they live.

As Alice Cullen put it, “Weddings, they bring everyone together!”

♥♥♥

But even before we get to the “formal” I DOs, one I DO must be uttered first — which brings us to THE PROPOSAL!

And as wrong timing as this post may seem (since it’s DECEMBER, not JUNE!), I’d like to share with you the video that started this whole “wedding” idea:

Aahhh, FLASH MOBS.  From the moment I’ve seen them in Friends with Benefits, I instantly fell in love with the entire concept!  And yes, hopeless romantic guys sure thought well for using a flash mob to execute one of the most nerve-wracking questions they’ll ever ask in their life:

“Wilt thou wed me?”
or if you prefer the modern translation,
“WILL YOU MARRY ME?”

Although it’s been said many times, many ways (oha!  I can still make this post sound Christmas-y!  Hahaha!), one thing remains: that when THAT one question is properly answered, it opens a whole new world to the people involved!  It’s not just the kilig factor anymore…  It’s more of the fact that two people will finally turn a new chapter in their lives, and embark on a journey…  a journey which most likely leads to HAPPILY EVER AFTER!  Enough. said. 😉

Just so you know, I recently got married, too…

If you don't DREAM BIG, what's the use in dreaming? Mwahahahahaha! ♥

…IN MY DREAMS, that is! 😛

with my cousin and fellow bridesmaid, Nadine ♥

Oh well.  Always a bridesmaid, but not really looking forward to being the bride (at least NOT YET!),

P.S: I’d like to share with you another video here.  Wala lang.  If you watch it, you’ll notice the location.  Sabi na dapat tumira na’ko sa CALIFORNIA ehlalo na sa Palo Alto!!!  Heehee.
