I MET JARED LETO

tfqF11501044428

I skipped work, prepared myself, hopped in to the car and headed to Thirty Seconds to Mars Concert. I was wearing 30STM shirt, denim ripped jeans and a pair of sneakers. I was bursting with excitement, like a kid on his first time in the carnival, I don’t know how to explain that feeling. Maybe it’s because I know that I will meet JARED LETO??Telling to myself, “Now I will have a chance to meet him and the rest of the band”.

I arrived at the concert venue late in the afternoon. I was nervous of going into the meet and greet, I might faint, lol. But this is my chance, so I waited patiently.

After MARS spoke to us a bit, we lined up and to get our posters and CDs signed. Jared was rushing through autographs. Finally, it’s my turn to get mine signed. He looked at me with his ferocious blue eyes. I got star-struck and in cloud 9. He smiled and shook hands with me. My heart is pounding out of my chest and got me at a loss for words. ‘Come on Lin, this is your chance to talk to him” I whispered to myselfI did not have hesitations to talk to him and so I did:

Me talking to Jared:

“Thank you Jared for this amazing opportunity. I’ve waited for so long and it’s incredibly life experience meeting you and the rest of the band(Shannon and Tomo). You know what, I’ve wrote in my blog about you to tell people that I like you and who you are, I hope you read it. Can I have a photo with you?”

Jared responded “YES”.

I was crying because of happiness – tears of joy. I was like “Up in the Air” feeling. I got my camera, I am really close to Jared. I’m about to click the camera, I heard an alarm, and everybody is rushing and shouting, “Time’s up, the concert will start”. I was disappointed, they did not let me to at least have a short time to get a photo with Jared 😦

I opened my eyes and I found myself lying in my bed. The alarm that I heard is my phone reminding me that I need to get up. I realized that I was just only dreaming. “Damn, I thought it’s real, I thought it’s really happening. If I knew that I was only dreaming, I shouldn’t have woken up when I heard the alarm.”

It’s a funny story, hahaha I know and even though it “Was a Dream”, at least I got to meet Jared Leto. I always keep this in my mind that “one day maybe we’ll meet again”  cause I am going to “MAKE THIS DREAM A REALITY”.

MUSIC MONDAY: HURRICANE(DIRECTOR’S CUT) THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS

Two weeks ago, I started a segment I entitled Music Monday where I can share you what song I am currently listening. Also, I didn’t mention in my previous post that this is also to share you a music video. I was about to blog last week but I got swamped with important things to do(I’ll discuss it on my next post). Ok so let us talk about today’s song.

If you know me personally, you’ll know that one of my favorite rock band is 30 Seconds to Mars. It is not a secret that I love Jared Leto. The band has been going for almost 20 years now. 30 Seconds to Mars is still 30 Seconds to Mars, unlike the other bands that has been disbanded and the lead vocalist goes solo. Well, I hope that they won’t end breaking up.

Hurricane is from their album “This is War” released in 2009. 7 years ago(2010) the music video was set to premiere on MTV but it has been banned on television due to violent and sex scenes. The explicit scenes are completely restricted(you can check out the censored version in my previous post here). And after 2 weeks of protesting, MTV allowed the full length video but it took years for Youtube to finally released the uncensored video. It’s just last week that Jared posted on Facebook that the video is finally out on Youtube so immediately checked on it and it will only allow 18 years old and above audience. So if you’re below 18, please do not attempt on watching it.

Here’s the video and song lyrics:

HURRICANE | 30 SECONDS TO MARS

No matter how many times that you told me
you wanted to leave
No matter how many breaths that you took
you still couldn’t breathe
No matter how many nights that you lie wide awake
to the sound of the poison rain
Where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go?

As days go by
the nights on fire

Tell me would you kill
to save a life
Tell me would you kill
to prove your right
Crash, crash,
Burn, let it al burn
This hurricane chasing us all underground

No matter how many deaths that I die
I will never forget
No matter how many lies that I live
I will never regret
There is a fire inside that started a riot
and about to explode in flames
Where is your God?
Where is your God?
Where is your God?

Do you really want?
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead or alive
to torture for my sins?

Do you really want?
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead or alive
to live a lie?

Tell me would you kill
to save a life
Tell me would you kill
to prove your right
Crash, crash,
Burn, let it all burn
this hurricane chasing us all underground

The promises we make were not enough
(never play the game with me)
The prayers that we have prayed were like a drug
(never go to hit me here)
The secrets that we sold were never known
(never sing a song we sing)
The love we had
The love we had
We had to let it go
(never get it and again,
never get it and again)

Tell me would you kill
to save a life
Tell me would you kill
to prove your right
Crash, crash
Burn, let it all burn
This hurricane chasing us all underground

This hurricane
This hurricane
This hurricane

Do you really want?
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead or alive
to torture for my sins?

Do you really want?
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead or alive
to live a lie?

In my own opinion, the song is meant for love relationship where the couple or in relationship people wants to break up ’cause they couldn’t work it out or fix their situation. It is not literally “to kill” but to killing their relationship gone bad. Hurricane refers to emotion that tear them apart. No matter how hard they tried, the two of them couldn’t keep their promises.  And in the end, the love they had for each other was not enough to save their relationship and it fell apart

Does anyone can relate with the song? I would love to know what can you say about it. You’re always welcome to leave comment on the comment box section. Hope you like reading today’s post and of course listening to the song.

 

Love,

Lin

PS: The video is directed by Jared my babe, hahaha.

IN LOVE WITH THE JOKER

“I concede that I’m in love with the green haired super villain, King of Gotham City, Joker” 

Ok, I’m just kidding here, hahahaha. I am talking about this guy who portrayed one of DC’s fictional character, Joker in Suicide Squad.

Rock Star and Oscar Winner Jared Joseph “Jared” Leto popularly known as lead vocalist of the American Rock Band 30 Seconds to Mars. His first appearance as an actor is during early 90’s and I was just about 5, 6 or 7 years old that time. I don’t really know about him until I discovered his band, 30STM and started listening to “The Kill” song in early 2000’s.

There’s no doubt why I madly adore him. Why? Apart from his bearded good looks that always turns me on, he’s talented – actor, singer, song writer, musician and director rolled into one convenient sushi 😍 Should I ask for more? Hahaha. It’s totally amazing how he manage to act, sing, write songs and direct some of music videos for his band(see here). How crazy it’ll be if I tell you that he’s now 45 years old? I had this in my mind that he’s not human, but he’s a vampire ’cause he isn’t ageing at all(loljk). And also, this guy loves mountains, he likes hiking. So tell me now, how not to like Jared?

So back in being Joker, Jared shared on Instagram a photo of Joker with his hands on Batman and a knife on his throat. This seems a teaser or hint that The Joker will return. I like him as Joker a.k.a Mr. J although that it is the wierdest of all because of his grills and tattoos. If the Joker returns, I’ll definitely wait for that movie.

As a fan, I’m always hoping and dreaming that one day I’ll watch their concert, will meet him in person and have photo with him. If he ask me to go mountain hiking, I’ll come with him with no hesitations inspite I’m afraid of heights as long as I am with the one and only Jared Leto.

I am sure that all the ladies out there who likes him can relate on what I am trying to say here and sorry to others who cannot. I may sound crazy here but I don’t care. I just want to let out my feelings with Jared, hahaha. So whoever knew him personally, please let him read this post.
