Let’s Ask Some Questions Shall We: I’ll Be The Interviewer

Now you’re probably wondering where i’m going with this, hear me out!! So i’ve been watching some moments and interviews of one of my favorite bands i’ve talked about them on here before, you may remember them as the band PVRIS, I talked about how I became a fan of theirs and also about their album White Noise, if you want to read that post you can find it here: Artist Of The Month: PVRIS (Take One White Noise Album And How I Became A Fan On The Band….Sorry If That’s Cheesy)

So I was watching some of their stuff this morning and I guess it kinda gave me an idea, I actually thought about this a while ago, when I was trying to figure out what to write about and this came to mind, so I thought i’d try it out and see how it could go. I’m hoping it goes well and I’m able to learn a little bit about you guys and you could learn a bit about me if you want and just kinda make this fun, get to know each other a bit, try something new you know, it doesn’t hurt to try right!?

So i’m gonna think of 5 different questions, random question and for those reading this if you want to answer them, great, if not that’s fine as well, it’s totally up to you, I just wanted to try something different and bring something fun to you all that I really hope that you enjoy.

Here are my 5 questions for you: 

Question #1: For those who write, do you listen to music while your writing!? If so what’s your go to playlist or artist that you enjoy listening to, if you don’t listen to music are there any other things you like to have as background noise or do you just enjoy no background noise at all when you write!?

Question #2: If you were in a band, what would you name your band, what would the genre of your music be and if you had to pick anyone (favorite artist, friends ect…) to be in it, who would you chose and what instruments would you have them play!?

Question #3: If you had to create the perfect (in your book) workspace whether you’re a writer, artist (musician, drawer, painter ect…) maybe you want a space just for reading, how would you create that space!?

Question #4: If you had a muse to write about (it doesn’t have to be writing, it can be anything) What would it be and how would you describe it!?

And Lastly:

Question #5: If someone came to you and said “Hey I need some advice” what kind of advice do you think they’d ask for knowing your own personality and how would you give them that advice!?

Those are all my questions, that I have for you guys, hopefully their decent questions, if any of you do look at this and consider answering them, I look forward to reading them and seeing what kind of stuff you come up with, their not really anything super special, but I thought this would be a good way to interact with some of you.

Artist Of The Month: PVRIS (Take One White Noise Album And How I Became A Fan On The Band….Sorry If That’s Cheesy)

I’ve been listening to PVRIS for a few days now and I figured since i’m constantly listening to their songs, why not write some stuff on them and share with you on how I got into them a bit. I’ve been a fan of the band for I would say about 2 years now, I  discovered them off a wrestling PPV advert (when I used to watch it)

I remember it, because it was the PPV Extreme Rules (one of my favorite PPV’s) and it was also the one where Seth Rollins returned after being gone for a year missing WrestleMania due to the fact that he was recovering from a really bad knee injury that almost ended his in ring career, but luckily it didn’t.

You might be wondering why i’m talking about the wrestler Seth Rollins, well that’s because I found the band PVRIS because of him, it’s one of his favorite bands,  I remember watching an interview that he was in and he was talking about his top  favorite songs and one of the songs on his list was the song St. Patrick by as you can probably guess PVRIS.

Now when I watched that interview I didn’t look them up right away, but once I heard their song Fire being featured as the main theme for the PPV Extreme Rules I became hooked, I searched more of their songs and that’s where I discovered their album White Noise which is incredible by the way.

Here are a few of my favorite songs off the Album: 

  1. Ghost
  2. You & I (both original & stripped down version)
  3. Smoke
  4. Fire
  5. St Patrick
  6. Let Them In
  7. Mirrors
  8. My House
  9. Holy
  10. White Noise

After I listened to the songs, I added the album to my I guess wish list you can say and then eventually I went and bought it, it’s still one of my favorite albums til this day. Now this was all back in 2016, they have two different albums with White Noise, the standard one (original) came out back in 2014, but they also went and added some more songs to that album making a Deluxe version, which is the one I own.

With the Deluxe version not only did you get the songs that were on the standard White Noise (Black) album, but you also got those songs, plus 3 more songs added (there were 10 on the Black album, but on the Deluxe version there’s 13) I think you were also able to watch the music videos to the songs as well off the Deluxe version.

I’ve actually watched all the music videos from that album and they’re really good, speaking of the music videos they were very interesting, every time you would watch a different one the way it would start would be through one of those handheld mirrors and they were always in a specific order as well.

When I watched the videos though it was in a different order, I didn’t know they were mean’t to be watched a certain way, but it was still pretty cool watching the music videos and seeing how everything was gonna come out, whether the songs would go well with it and they did, really well too.

Each song is it’s own individual and when you hear them, they take you on this journey with them, it’s hard to explain what I mean, you’ll have to take a listen for yourself to understand, the whole album is amazing, it really is and so is the band. Lynn though her voice, wow, she really brings a different kind of sound to her songs and you can really hear the emotions and rawness that she brings to those songs as well, her voice to me is something you don’t quite hear often, she has this very unique thing to her that is hard to grasp onto at first, but once you do, you become hooked and say to yourself “gee i’m glad I found this band”

I’ve listened to them so much, you would think i’d get tired, but I don’t I guess they’re just one of those bands that keep me wanting to come back for more even if i’ve listened to them 1000 times and those are the kind of bands that I like and will continue to enjoy for a very long time.

Now I know that everyone has different taste in music and you may have a different opinion towards this band and that’s okay, not everyone likes the same thing. I hope that you enjoyed this a bit, I just wanted to write about them, I kinda got inspired and I wanted to share it with you guys.

 

If you’re a fan of PVRIS feel free to share what your favorite songs are if you like, off the White Noise album if you’ve heard it. For those who haven’t and maybe want to give them a listen here’s a playlist of their songs from the album discussed here: PVRIS-White Noise Album

Random Topic Of The Day: Let’s Talk Video Games And Themes (Animal Crossing One Of My Favorites)

Well hello everyone and welcome to MY BLOG!!! Hope you’re all well, if you’re wondering why I just opened up my blog post that way it’s because while I was writing the first sentence to this blog post, I thought about a Youtuber I enjoy watching his name is MatPat and on his channel he talks about games and films, but he theorizes it and the opening to his videos are “Well hello everyone, welcome to GAME THEORY or FILM THEORY…..you get it haha……if you’re interested in watching his stuff you can find it here Game Theory and here Film Theory I think you’ll enjoy it, at least I hope you do.

Anyway that’s not what I wanted to talk about, it was just something that came to mind so I thought i’d share that with you and it also is a different opening, I hope you enjoyed that, but yeah today’s topic is a random one, that actually just came into my mind literally a few minutes ago (well by the time you read this, those few minutes would have long passed so it just came to me randomly, yeah) i’m not really sure how long this post is gonna be, but yeah we’ll see.

Right now it’s around 2:30pm afternoon time of course and I just started writing…..what you don’t know is i’ve been trying to write for a goood while now, I was hoping that something would come to me to write about and nothing came at least not until now. I thought maybe if I watched a video of some sort there would be some kind of topic I could possibly share my thoughts on and yeahhh…….nothing spark my creativity nor gave me some kind of inspiration, that was until I started listening to some music. Now you’re probably thinking it’s normal music, you know favorite artist kind of music and if you thought that……boy were you wrong, but that’s okay, it happens, no needs to worry (no that’s not a typo I did that on purpose)

The kind of music i’m talking about is theme music, specifically game theme music, why am I talking about game themes, well i’m glad you asked (I know you didn’t ask, but just go with okay) I’m talking about game themes because a game theme inspired this blog post, so I thought i’d just share my thoughts on that with you guys, which I hope you don’t mind…….the game that i’m talking about here just to get to it is Animal Crossing, I don’t know if a lot of you have ever played or heard of the game, but it’s one of my favorite games to play. For those of you who don’t know what the game is about, well you pretty much just build your own town, well at least in the New leaf one, there’s so many different versions of the game, There’s the original Animal Crossing game, then you have Wild World, City Folk and so many others. I would say that it’s one of the best games to play, along with it being addictive when you first start playing it, but it’s fun though.

I haven’t played the game in ages at least not the ones where you build your own town, I just recently started playing Happy Home Designer again and I forgot how fun it was and how much I missed the games. I recently just found this youtuber who plays a lot of different kind of games and does reviews as well for games, but one of the main games that she plays is Animal Crossing and i’m really enjoying her channel, at the moment i’m watching her play ACPC (Animal Crossing Pocket Camp) I just forgot how good Animal Crossing is, just talking about it makes me want to play it again, but yeah i’m getting off track here what I wanted to talk about with the game is the music that plays within the game, it’s soooo goood, SO GOOD. I have certain favorites that I enjoy, if I had to choose one though I would say the cafe music, there’s just something about it that I love it’s great.

The main song that I wanted to talk about, is the one that gave me the idea of this blog post and that song is called 2pm and it’s from City Folk, I think that’s the third installment from the Animal Crossing Series (I checked I think it is yeah) City Folk is probably one of the best Animal Crossing games from the franchise, everyone that’s played the game, would probably rate it as one of their top favorites and I would say it’d be mine as well. Going back to the 2pm song from City Folk, the reason i’m bringing it up is because that theme when you listen to it, fits sooooo well when you have no idea what to do and that’s pretty much what was happening with me today.

I did a few things not a lot, but a bit and after I finished those things I wasn’t quite sure what to do, I cleaned certain parts of my room, getting rid of stuff I didn’t want nor needed, then I came over to my computer to write something and I couldn’t, I literally sat in front of my computer screen and stared at the blank unwritten post, I then went outside sat out there for a few minutes, then came back in hoping that would help and it didn’t, so I just started listening to the Animal Crossing soundtrack i’m not quite sure why but I did and it was an hour long, but yeah I listened to it and when 2pm came on (the song) it gave me an idea to write about Animal Crossing and the music in it, I didn’t think the blog post would be this long though, I guess I must really love the game to write about it.

I started writing this blog post trying to talk about how certain video game themes go with the mood you’re in as with how most songs tend to do as well, but then I realized half way in while writing this post, this just became me fangirling (excitedly freaking out) about the game which I didn’t expect to happen and said to myself I think I should’ve made this into a video instead of writing about it because I feel it would’ve been more of a video idea then a blog post idea, but I had already started writing so much on the topic soooo I just continued, I know that this isn’t really useful information, but it was something that came to mind and I wanted to share it, anyway that’s all I have for today, sorry if this isn’t your kind of read, I just got a little excited about this topic, it’s one of my favorite games……yeah…..anyway I hope you’re all having a lovely day and that you have a great night/morning and or evening.

 

All The Love ❤ ❤
