MUSIC MONDAY: WALK ON WATER 30 SECONDS TO MARS

Obviously, this post is dedicated to my favorite rock band(you know it already, hahaha) and to the Echelons of course. I’ll be quick here.

The long wait is over as Thirty Seconds to Mars finally unveiled their new single, first song after 4 years. Here’s the video just in case you haven’t seen it yet:

Every clips are filmed in a single day in the United States of America last 4th of July 2017. The band asked fans to film portrait of the country in all 50 states. Great job guys! It’s a success ’cause it reached 3M Views on Youtube. Congrats 30STM.

Also, have you watched MTV VMA 2017 yesterday? 30STM performed live with collaboration of Travis Scott and it is so unique and best performance of all. I am not bias but it is, hehehe.

Mars shook things up with this performance with a full-throttle thermal technology. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

Won’t write a detailed post about the meaning of the song but what I can only say is, it’s about political views or what is happening in the society(I hope I am right).

Signing off.

I MET JARED LETO

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.

MUSIC MONDAY : FORGIVENESS | PARAMORE

A suppose to be Monday post but I think that it is still ok to post this today(Tuesday here in PNG) ’cause it’s still Monday in other part of the world, so forgive me 🙂

I’ll start this series entitled “Music Monday” where I can share you what song  I am currently listening or I think I can relate with. I prefer listening to songs that I feel like it was written for me(yiihh) like this song I am going to share with you today.

I am sure that some of you know the band Paramore. If you’re a die-hard fan like me(hahaha) , you already knew that they release their 5th album titled “After Laughter”. After 4 years, finally they’re back and it is not only Hayley and Taylor are back in track. Former member drummer Zac Farro is now member again of Paramore. But I was quite sad that Jeremy Davis was gone. I don’t really know what exactly happen. But the band must go on, and they have to move on.

I am introducing you one of their song from the latest album “After Laughter”. Please click the play button and see the lyrics while listening.

FORGIVENESS | PARAMORE

You hurt me bad this time, no coming back
And I cry ’till I couldn’t cry, another heart attack
If I lay on the floor, maybe I’ll wake up
And I don’t pick up when you call
‘Cause your voice is a gun
Every word is a bullet hole
Shot a hole in the sun
If I never look up maybe I’ll never notice

And you, you want forgiveness
But I, I just can’t do it yet

There’s still a thread that runs from your body to mine
And you can’t break what you don’t see, an invisible line
If I follow it down would we just be alright?
But it could take me all your life to learn to love
How I thought I could love someone
I haven’t even begun
If it’s all up to us we might as well give up

And you, you want forgiveness
(I can barely hang on to myself)
But I, I can’t give you that
(I can’t give you, I can’t give you that)
And you, you want forgiveness
(I’m afraid that I’ll have nothing left)
But I, I just can’t do it yet
(I can’t do, I just can’t do it yet)

Don’t you go and get it twisted
Forgiving is not forgetting
Don’t you go and get it twisted
Forgiving is not forgetting
No, it’s not forgetting
No, I’ll never forget it, no

And you, you want forgiveness
(I can barely hang on to myself)
But I, I can’t give you that
(I can’t give you, I can’t give you that)
And you, you want forgiveness
(I’m afraid that I’ll have nothing left)
But I, I just can’t do it yet
(I can’t do, I just can’t do it yet)

I find this song that can relate with my situation after receiving message from someone from the past. I’ve already let go of our love story after all the lies and heartache he caused. And now, he’s asking for forgiveness but I don’t think that he deserves it. I was so tough, and I can’t give yet what he wants. His sorry is not enough ’cause I got badly hurt. Call me selfish but I don’t care ’cause you’re not in my situation. Try to put yourself on my shoe. Maybe one day I’ll understand and maybe I just need time.

Hope you like the song
