I AM FINALLY BACK!!!!!
And back on Instagram too @articulateart – with pictures from the dazzling city of Hong Kong =)
(The Wipe Out Exhibit by Invader @invaderwashere that just ended on the 17th)
So what have I been up to……….
I made a new year’s resolution to read more this year and I just finished a duology! =D
The covers and titles just captured me; the cover art are absolutely amazing.
The first book is called The Assassin’s Curse, while the second one is called The Pirates’ Wish.
Assassins and Pirates – need I say more?
Apparently there’s a third book that’s a prologue called The Witch’s Betrayal but I haven’t gotten to it yet.
If you enjoyed the Pirates of the Caribbean (at least the first one for me), I’m sure you will enjoy them.
A light Y.A. read with pirates, assassins, and magic/ mystical creatures all mixed into one potion.
Songs that go with the books :
London Grammar – Wicked Game
Borns – Electric Love
Mat Kearney – Ships in the Night
Hyorin – Lonely
Muse – Starlight
Not going to give away which scenes they should be played at. No spoilers 😉
The book had a lot of criticisms on book review sites, and many parts of it were true… but I still enjoyed it as a light read. Perhaps I’ll save it for another post if any of you are interested.
Music acts as a lifeline for many. That right song at the right time can go a long way and each one adds up. They get us up and going again through our rollercoaster ride of ups and downs which we call life.
Lindsey Sterling – Crystallize:
This girl is amazing. I can’t play the violin or dance like her (nor doing both at the same time). Beautiful scenery as a backdrop for the music video, and mixing dupstep with the violin is just so clever.
두번째 달 – 봄이다 (unfortunately there is no English translation to this)
This piece is purely instrumental and just sounds very lovely. A very dreamy and fairy-tale like piece. A great song to listen to after a long day’s work.
Epitone Project (에피톤 프로젝트) – 이제, 여기에서 (no translation as well)
Epitone Project – Sketch 1
This Korean indie band has really awesome and soothing songs if you like this genre of music.
Re-post and share if you like these songs =)
“All good music resembles something. Good music stirs by its mysterious resemblance to the objects and feelings which motivated it.” – Jean Cocteau
For those of you who have been following ArticulateArt for some time, you may remember I posted a ‘Lifeline of Music about a year and a half ago.
I still think music has a hand in steering our emotions to whatever direction as compared with what we may be feeling right before listening to it. I have decided to keep this going, and to share some of the songs that I have found and been listening to recently. Feel free to share some good finds on your side as well to enlarge our music selection.
I do listen to a fairly wide range of music, so here goes :
Clara C – Cover of Stay by Rihanna & Mikky Ekko:
This cover has a different mood to it than the original, and I actually prefer this cover more.
John Park – Falling:
He tried out American Idol a few years back, but it seems like his change in music industry has done him good so far. Sometimes not “winning” may be a blessing in disguise in different circumstances. This song is just lovely.
Imagine Dragons – Amsterdam:
Can’t believe I’ve only found out about them until now. Need I say more?
(side note: must add Amsterdam to my bucket list)
King & Country – Middle of Your Heart:
P.S. Thank you for all of you who have “liked” my posts! I have just passed the 200 ‘liked’ mark! Going to keep these posts rolling!
