Since music posts are all I can seem to manage these days, let's just go with that.
Yesterday in the hour I had before work, I posted "Love is a Battlefield" by Pat Benatar, because (1) amazing song and (2) I feel like it's my anthem to the conquerable troubles Zee and I are having to face right now.
Today I'm not going to be personal. Instead of looking inward, I will be looking outward.
I have become something shy of obsessed with the History Channel's show "Ancient Aliens." The premise of the show is to go over the literal MOUNTAIN of evidence that points to extraterrestrials visiting us in our ancient past. Everything from ancients possessing knowledge of stars too far for the human eye to see to their knowledge of the lay of the the Antarctica coastline miles beneath the ocean. From cave-paintings all over the world depicting beings wearing helmets to evidence that our ancestors somehow had possession of nuclear tools, flying crafts, and building knowledge that surpasses our own.
Mmm, like I said, getting close to obsessed...
So when Katy Perry's "Extraterrestial" came out, I jumped all over that.
A few things to say about this video:
1. I think Kanye is a talented and snobby, slimy pit of ultimate douchery.
2. I hate it when rappers remix a song, and what they rap has nothing to do with the message of the song.
3. This video is gorgeous. It's neither over- or under-done, in my opinion.
4. I want Katy Perry's hair-do in the last section of the video. Must find a way to wear my hair like that about once a week when my hair is long.
I promised myself I wouldn't miss the song link-up!
I also promised that I wouldn't link up another foreign song, but tonight my sister and I are watching Devdas...
I've seen it before - and it's such a sad movie - so I'm not able to pay perfect attention to it.
The parts that do have my full attention are the songs - so beautiful and emotional!
This song in particular has meaning. On the day he left to study abroad, Parvati lit a candle to guide her love, Devdas, home. Ten years later, word has finally arrived that he is heading back.
Even though they were just children when he went, she never forgot and she never let the lamp die. This song is an illustration of the lamp's fortitude. The servants try to extinguish the light several times in this song, but nothing works. It's almost like the lamp, and Pavarti's love, is magical and all-powerful.
