Kingsmen: The golden circle

Kingsman-The-Golden-Circle-logo.jpg

Ever since they announced this sequel, I have been very curious what they would do in it. In particular, since there wasn’t a comic on which it was based. The comic only got released when the film was filmed and in post-production. I was very curious if they were able to keep up the quality and the jokes.

15 years All-American Rejects

BeFunky Collage.jpg

I have been listening to the All-American Rejects ever since their first album was released.  I remember telling friends about them and they would look at me as if I invented a band, but also other friends that were borrowing my copy of the CD. Later on, I have been talking about nostalgia with friends about this band and have discovered that friends I made long after the first album was released have been into the band too.

The All-American Rejects

The first and self-titled album, and where my discovery of this band started. And as this is the first album, I find it suited to start off with the song that started it all for me. Over the years I have found that there are at least two versions of the album and certain song sound slightly different.  So the song I chose to start with is “Swing,Swing” but there are so many other beautiful songs on the album.

Wish cast into the sky
I’m moving on
Sweet beginnings do arise
She knows I was wrong
The notes are old,
They bend, they fold
And so do I to a new love

Move Along

This is the second album and I was still really listening to each and every song of the albums. Whenever I get this album on I have so much nostalgia for the time when this album was released. Choosing a song is harder here since there are quite some catchy songs on here that I think were placed on the album because they wanted to break through and get more airtime with their songs. I’m not picking one of the singles but a song that I still sing along to right now and is still present on my playlist: “Dance Inside”:

What makes the one to shake you down?
Each touch belongs to each new sound
Say now you want to shake me too
Move down to me, slip into you

When the world comes down

By the time this album was released, I was listening to so many bands that I  have to admit that I didn’t listen to all songs in the beginning. I started doing this at the moment nostalgia was hitting me, and then all of a sudden I discovered some songs I never had heard before.  There are so many songs that are easy to sing along to but I’m choosing a ballad “Mona Lisa (When the world comes down)”

Here’s another pity 
And there’s another chance
Try to learn a lesson 
But you can’t.
If we can burn a city 
In futures and in past,
Without a change our lives will never last.
Cause we’re going fast.

Kids in the street

This is the last studio album which was released and this has already been some time now. During the later albums, it seems that I haven’t really listened to the album as a whole but am drawn to certain songs. The little gem that I only recently discovered on this album is “Heartbeat slowing down”:

Here you left scattered
Like wishes I led to your room
Bury my face in your pillow
Just to smell your perfume
Outside I’m hungry
But inside I’m just consumed
Tell me how I’m supposed to breathe
Losing you is choking me

This last album is already from 2012 and there are reports they are working on new material. There was a single in 2015 called “There is a place” and very recent in July they released “Sweat”. So my hopes are high for new songs soon and maybe even a tour since I still have to see them live!

Sorrento 2017

I have been to Sorrento before, I’m talking about 12-13 years ago when I spent a week just out of the center of the city with a bunch of late teens/ young twenty-somethings. I have fond memories of that trip, not just the people but also about the region in general. When my mum asked if we could go to Sorrento on our annual summer holiday I was up for the trip.

Wonder Woman

BeFunky CollageI had no idea what to expect from the standalone Wonder Woman film. From watching the trailer I did know that it was going to be in the past since the images from WW II that can’t be denied. I did see Batman vs. Superman and had seen the character there but knowing that there was a female director and it would be an origin story is still far from the story itself.
