Creator Spotlight: Blume

Okay so i’ve had this post held as an idea for a while now and i’ve come close a few times writing it, but I never knew how i’d write on it so I kinda just let it be for a while, now some of you may remember some of you may not, but I actually talked about Blume before and even shared a few of my favorite playlist mixes of theirs, now my favorites tend to go at a rotation

So the ones before are still favorites I just haven’t heard them in a good while, but I should probably explain what Blume is, it’s a Channel that creates playlist of music with different artists featured pretty much, they also have a gaming channel, but I haven’t really explored that realm of theirs properly, I just went on the channel out of curiosity to what kind of games they played in case there was one I caught interest in……..

it’s mainly the Witcher, Call of Duty…..games in that category and although they might be entertaining games for those who are also fans of those said games…..it’s not really my kind of entertainment, so that’s why I hadn’t checked it out, but i’m sure it’s a good channel nonetheless!!

Back to Blume’s music channel though, how do I explain it!? It’s quite ambient if you want to say, although there is a lot more to it, but it’s great if you’re looking for something to listen to, but don’t really want to have too much distraction going on, although it’s great to sing along to songs, sometimes you just want something a little more chilled that won’t make you lose focus or take you away from being and keeping productive

That’s where Blume comes in, the great thing i’d say about his channel is you get a little bit of everything when it comes to their playlists, now I will say that some of the playlists have the same songs in it from prior playlists, but trust me when I say they all fit well with the theme of the playlists created, I think this channel actually creates their playlists by listening to each song that they choose and adding them based on where they may fit!?……if that makes sense……they go mainly on feeling, I think,

I can’t really explain what I mean right now, but just know with each song that you hear within these mixes all fit well with each other!! I feel there’s more that I want to express with this one so……i’m probably going to talk about it as well at some point and see if can make sense in some other way as well…..but yeah this is just a few things about this channel, if you’re interesting in checking out any of the mixes from there, i’ll leave some of my current favorites at the moment that i’ve been listening to non stop:

I’ve been going back and re playing the first recommended mix a lot:

Silence AroundBLUME (I don’t know what it is, there’s just something about this mix that I like)

Shelter – BLUME (This is probably my second favorite)

Rain In Dreamland – BLUME (Now although I haven’t heard this one in a good while…..i’d still consider it a favorite, especially that one song that I played over and over, it’s the first song called Divine, it’s so good as well as the rest of the playlist of course)

Those are just a few of my favorites to listen to that i’d recommend checking out, if you’re curious on the gaming channel they have as well, you can always find it listed within the description or on their channel page, hope you find one you like, if you do manage to check it out!!

Creators Spotlight: JordReacts (Part 2)

Hiya everyone, hope you’re all well and having a good weekend, hope your Sunday’s treating you nice as well, now I know already did one, but there was someone else that I wanted to give a little love and shine some light to, this person has a react channel, it’s a music reaction channel, however it’s UK based, now the kind of music that is reacted to, is one that a lot of you may not know of, some of you might, some probably not……

What kind of music does this channel react to you might ask!? Well this channel is specifically a Grime channel, it’s a type of music within the UK, it’s not really big outside of the UK, so a lot of people don’t really know it, but it is getting there, now if you were to ask me what exactly is Grime music…..well……it’s kinda like rap music, but also not, it’s a lot different,

but this channel can give you a really good and MUCH better insight to it then I can, all I can say is it’s worth listening to, if you haven’t already heard it and if you’re looking for something completely out of your music taste range so to say. Now I will say this, for new comers listening to Grime for the first time, it may take a bit to adjust, because of how quick some of the freestyles are, but besides that i’d still recommend checking it out and the best place to do that in case you are a little curious and interested……

Would be to check out JordReacts channel, you’ll be introduced to a lot of different artists and you’ll get to hear what the music’s all about, all at the same time!! It’s a win, win i’d say, so go and check out that out, it’s great, he’s great and I think you’ll find a lot within it!!

I’m going to leave a few of my favorite songs that he’s reacted to on his channel in a playlist, so you guys can get a little idea on what kind of music you’ll be hearing, now there’s only three songs in this playlist right now, couldn’t find the other ones I liked also I just made it, but there’s some there, so listen to what you feel most: Spotify Playlist (JordReacts Favorites)

I’ll be updating this playlist with more favorites of mine along the way, so if you do have a listen and find you like some of the songs, you can just click on the playlist and see what else is added there if you want, but again definitely check out JordReacts channel, show some love and support to him as well as the artists that are featured on the channel and I hope some of you discover and do find something you all like from it!! ^_^

All The Love ❤ ❤ ❤

Coincidences……I’m Now Wondering If I’ve Written About This Before!?……

So I feel like I might’ve talked about this before, but i’m also not sure so sorry if we’ve already covered this topic and you’re hearing it again, I just wanted to talk about something interesting that happened, so there’s a playlist that I always listen to called Wonderland, in that playlist there’s about an hour of music playing with different songs of course…….

Here’s the playlist in case you want to listen to it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxzG2UMAkRo&t=3850s

Now i’ve listened to this playlist a lot, I still listen to it, i’m actually listening to it now as i’m writing to be honest, but to get to the point here, so naturally I pretty much know every song that’s about to play because i’ve heard it so much, now this has nothing to do with the songs that play,

but with something else with the playlist, now if you’re like me and you’re someone that pays attention to detail, you’ll pretty much see everything to what you’re looking at right!? Yeah well there was a change that caught me off guard as I was listening to the playlist and it was very specific too, but I won’t say what or why……but what I will say is that the normal date to the playlist, the day it was uploaded, changed for a good moment, now I don’t know how long it was there for while listening, all I know is when I looked up it said Dec 10th, 2017, when it normally says Dec 11th, 2017…..

Me when that happened: Well something like it anyway…..it’s close enough

Now that may not be that weird, it might’ve been a weird glitch, but I don’t think it was, because uploads don’t change dates unless you’re re uploading or something, I wouldn’t really know actually, all I know is that it was weird to see it at Dec 11th one moment and then look up to see Dec 10th the next.

Now I know what you’re thinking, proof or it didn’t happen, well I would gladly share it……but I didn’t screenshot it……yeah I know I should’ve, but it was the last thing on my mind and it wasn’t until after I refreshed the tab where I thought “I probably should’ve screenshot that”

but before that came to mind, I went and opened a new tab just to see and make sure I wasn’t going crazy and when I saw that I wasn’t, I was more confused about it, so yeah……that happened!! 😀 It was really weird,

For a split moment it was a different day and I didn’t even think to screen shot it until after it happened, which i’m kinda upset about, because I could’ve relooked at it and showed you, but…..yeah….now whether you believe this or not is fine, but I know what I saw and that’s all I got sooo I just thought i’d share that weird moment!!

Did I go a little overboard with it!? Maybe, Is it a coincidence!?……..Nope, I feel I was supposed to see that and also there are no coincidences,……so has something like that ever happened to you guys, i’m curious to know if so!?

All The Love ❤ ❤

Jukebox Typewriter (Oct 8, 2018)

The title of this blog post, is an actual name for one of my Spotify playlists, it’s also become one of my favorites as well, I listen to that playlist more than any of my other playlists that I created and i’ve created a lot of playlists believe me. You may wonder why i’m talking about playlists here and well that’s because that’s the topic of today’s post, i’m not really sure why I wrote a whole journal entry on music playlists, but I did and i’ve just finished it as well, it’s not a long journal entry, but it’s a good amount i’d say and I want to write about it, hope that’s alright.

My reasoning on writing about playlists is because I was trying to figure out what to write and I couldn’t quite come up with anything, but I didn’t want to not write anything because as you may all know, I went a long time not writing on here and i’m trying to do my best to not go that long off writing again, even if what i’m writing about isn’t the greatest and so today the topic that I could think about was music and creating playlists. What kinda gave me the idea for it was, I was listening to a playlist of one of my favorite bands named PVRIS (it’s Paris but they have it where the V has replaced the A) I love that band, their music is something special, the writing style they use and just the songs itself off their albums are super incredible, they’re just AMAZING!!

The playlist I was listening to is called This Is PVRIS, it’s a Spotify created playlist with a few of their songs, if you want to check it out, I will leave it for you guys This Is PVRIS you should really give them a listen, they’re great, but anyway listening to their playlist made me want to write about music playlists in general kinda and so that’s what I did and I want to share my latest journal entry on it with you guys.

 

Original Journal Entry Title: Music (Oct 8, 2018)

Music gee where do I start!? Music just has a way of speaking to you doesn’t it!? You can literally find the perfect playlist for any mood you’re in or you can create your very own playlist with all the songs that you feel speak to you and your mood the most, which is my personal favorite. I use to create music playlists a lot, but for some reason never listened to them once they were created, I was just obsessed with creating them, it wasn’t until recently where I started listening to created playlists, including my own.

My favorite part about creating new music playlists, is well creating them, you would think that creating personal music playlists would be super simple, you have a few songs you want to add to a playlist, you add them, type in a quick title for it and that’s it right!? yeah not for me, whenever I create a new playlist, I put a lot of heart in it, that may sound weird to you guys, but creating personal music playlists is like one of my hobbies, I can’t explain it any other way. To me it’s not just about creating a playlist of your favorite songs.

I feel when creating a playlist with songs in it, it’s like telling a little story within those songs you add to your new playlist and with all stories there’s a title to it and i’m learning that titles are preeety much everything, because that’s how people become drawn and want to know more about it. Choosing the right title for something, is very special because your giving it a name, while also being given a chance to be creative and unique, you know bring something different to the table, when you give something a name (in this case a playlist full of songs a name) you give that playlist it’s own identity and when you give it an identity, you also give your emotions a chance to show and be felt, while also giving your playlist a chance to stand out.

Sometimes we’ll create random playlists just because and that’ll be it, i’ve done that a few times, it just a thing we do when listening to music and it’s normal to do, sometimes you just want a quick playlist, but for me most times I like to be a little creative with it and there’s nothing wrong with that. 

(End Of Journal Entry)

P.S. There’s a little backstory on the playlist Jukebox Typewriter, but i’ll probably explain that some other time, I don’t want this blog post to be super long, however I just want to say how much I love the title Jukebox Typewriter. Every time I look at it or listen to the songs off the playlist, I just become very excited and very proud of myself for that name, so yeah it’s one of my favorites 😀 I hope you’re all well and that you all have a goodnight.

 

All The Love ❤ ❤
