One of the songs I have listened most to this summer, is Lily Allen`s Sheezus. I like the text, the sound and the video.
She’s humorous and has great points if you pay attention. Lily doesn’t really want to be “Sheezus” (Which is a play on words of Kanye’s “Yeezus”). She’s far from full of herself. It’s about how the females in the industry are treated as well as how they act. They keep trying to top each other. One minute Gaga releases something crazy so right away someone like Rihanna has to release a song
Hope you like the video (might be triggering if you have experienced abuse)!
Sometimes I want to so everything at once and my Mac just won’t do it. I’m no Mac expert, but I usually love the products. Right now, I don’t. I wanted to upload some pictures I’ve taken lately, and started the OpenOffice program at the same time. I also hit the ‘pages’ button, but apparently my silver friend is trying to tell me I should take it easy. In moments like these I remember other similiar instances : ‘Slow down, Nina’. It’s like I’m always in a hurry, and I expect everything around me to do the same. I shouldn’t need technology to tell me this isn’t always advisable. I can give people countless examples: I’ve locked my car-key inside the car four times! One time when I did that, my luggage was inside and my plane left in 20 minutes.
I’ve sprinkled my collages with ideas as fresh and confusing as a newborn chicken. I’ve managed to delete long emails that I didn’t take the time to save before it. I’ve tried to slow down, but with slower pace comes slower motivation. It’s like I need the surge of energy to fuel my behavior. When I finally slow down I sit down with books and don’t produce much. I need this, too. But I also need the tempo. I need the eagerness and glee when I do something I’m excited about, and as long as I always take time to plan and contemplate, I’m fine.
I posted one of my favorite language sketches yesterday after I wrote with lexborgia the other day. Suddenly I found myself seeing on of the other funny videos I`ve always liked, and laughed even know (quite impressing, considering how many times I`ve seen it). In this youtube-interview, one Norwegian comedian called “Truls” interviews Matt Dillon. He has a mission before the interview, and that is to say as many strange things in the interview as possible, like “hitch in the roof” and “fraculation”. Enjoy!
