Music Obsessions [May 2017]

Another month has passed us by! We’re almost at the halfway mark of the year! Wow!

Seeing as I’ve been busy, music has been my constant companion and surprisingly, this is when I found all kinds of really fantastic tunes that has been keeping me very upbeat and motivated and on the more tired days, given me energy. They are rather random choices so hope you enjoy!

Blind Heart – CAZZETTE ft Terri B!

By far, one of my favorite finds this past week. CAZZETTE has made some really great music and this one is definitely one I love a whole lot.

Ev’rybody Wants To Be A Cat (‘The Aristocats) – Charles Perry

The AristoCats is my favorite Disney movie. Perhaps its because I love cats a lot but then its just because I love the songs and everything. Its adorable and fun and super lighthearted. Plus, Everybody Wants To Be A Cat gets stuck in my head and makes me pretty happy most of the day afterwards. I never knew about this 2015 We Love Disney soundtrack with Disney songs sang by more popular artists. I honestly like this one a lot.

Still Feel Like A Man  – John Mayer

I’ve never heard much of John Mayer. Or I have but never quite acknowledged it but somehow I was reading something and landed on watching this one. I have to admit that other than the video being really fun to watch, the song is pretty catchy as well. John Mayer has a lot of charm but something about adding in dancing pandas and some quirky choreography works for me. At least it makes me so very happy to watch and incredibly pleasing to listen to.

Confessions nocturnes – Diam’s feat Vitaa

I may have shared this one before in some other segment over the last few years but I come back to listening to this song every once in a while. I like songs that have this conversation style to it while telling a story. I personally find this one pretty catchy but my husband disagree.

Attention – Charlie Puth

Not exactly a Charlie Puth fan. I’m really indifferent about him however, somehow I landed on this new song and its pretty good. I just know that if this reaches the radio, and after listening to it a billion times, it might get old. For not, the tune is pretty cool.

It’s Gonna Be Me – N’Sync

I do have to be honest that the radio has a way of putting on good music every once in a while when they dive into the 90’s and while it makes me happy to listen to Backstreet Boys, I’ve probably mentioned before that I’m a N’Sync girl so it always makes me happy when that pops up. This past while, It’s Gonna Be Me has been popping up quite a bit. So yeah, added that also to my playlist.

What songs/music do you listen to to keep you motivated and/or energized?

Three Movies I’ve Been Rewatching [July 2016]

Welcome to *hopefully* a new segment! I’ve been trying to figure out a list format for movies since a few years back but never really came up with anything. I know this idea isn’t anything novel and maybe one of my blogging friends even do it. But, I realize that a lot of times things are slow around here because I’m busy and when I multitask, I put on movies I’ve seen before all the time. Some of them, I haven’t reviewed and some I have. I will get around to reviewing those I haven’t that show up on the list but I thought it’d also be nice to be able to go back to share of my older reviews that some of you might not have seen, especially since the blogging scene has changed quite a bit! 🙂

I’m hoping this is going to be a monthly segment which will always be a monthly wrap-up format. What do you think? I might change the list around and theme it differently, who knows. My ideas churning in my head always change.

THREE MOVIES I’VE BEEN REWATCHING THIS JULY

The AristoCats (1970)

The AristoCats

The review for this one is coming up for the Baking Through Disney project. I know its ridiculous and slowed down but I’m going to be making it really soon!

The AristoCats is my go-to animated Disney movie. For one, I love cats and second, it has some adorable and fun songs. Three, ITS DISNEY! I think that pretty much answers everything. It holds a special place in my heart ever since I first saw years and years ago. My favorite character are the kittens, of course! They are so silly. And definitely Scat Cat and his band.

Justice, My Foot! (1992)

Justice My Foot

Also no review for this one! I haven’t done a review on a Stephen Chow classic in a while so I’m going to get on that really soon.

I love Stephen Chow! He is literally the definition of humor to me. I guess if you read my The Mermaid review (or God of Gamblers 2 or Tricky Brains), you get a good idea of how much he’s influenced me and my appreciation for humor. As stupid and absurd as it is sometimes, its actually all very smart and even more so when I speak Cantonese and understand it well so it doesn’t even get lost in translation and I wish everyone could get it like I did. Justice, My Foot! isn’t one I watched frequently but it also reminds me of the talent the Hong Kong industry has lost over the years, notably Anita Mui here and how Mimi Chu hasn’t done any movies in ages and she’s fantastic.

Mean Girls (2004)

mean girls

I swore I reviewed it but apparently I didn’t yet! Regardless, Mean Girls is possibly the first teen movie that I saw which totally converted me. You know, the days when I thought Lindsay Lohan was fantastic in her teen comedies (Just like Amanda Byne and She’s the Man). That said, Mean Girls is pretty awesome. It is pretty funny and saw the beginning careers of Rachel McAdam which shows how far she’s gone looking at last year’s performance in Spotlight (which I reviewed HERE) and Lizzy Caplan (whether its in Cloverfield or Bachelorette). Of course, we also can’t forget Amanda Seyfried (who I liked in Mamma Mia! and Letters to Juliet). Back to the movie, Mean Girls is 12 years old! I cannot believe it! It packs in a lot of humor and silliness and its plain ridiculous in parts but still so very enjoyable.

Honorable Mention: Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong (2015)

I know this is a new movie and I just had my review go up for The Timely  Blogathon earlier in July but I’ve rewatched it at least three times since then.

That’s my list!
