December 5, 2017 — 8 Comments

Untitled design.jpg

Thank you so much to Michala over at Andhonestly for nominating me! I’m usually the one to nominate her so this was a fun change hehe. Go check out her blog, it’s one of my favorites.

The Rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog
2. Shuffle your entire music library and talk about the FIRST FIFTEEN songs that come up
3. Mention the songs as well as the artists
4. Tag 7 people or more to do this tag and let them know

The music:

  1. Pvris – Anyone else
    I think this is probably my most favorite song from their newest album. I love the music video, with its interesting visuals and interpretive dance and just everything about it makes it my fave.
  2. Pvris – Heaven
    And then this one is probably my least favorite. I think it was because it was the one they used in youtube ads the most and it just got overexposed for me.
  3. Angels & Airwaves – Some origins of fire
    This is one of the songs I listen to the most in the mornings. It’s really chill but it also gets me a bit hyped for the day that is to come so to me it’s the perfect song for early mornings.
  4. Daughter – The end
    This song reminds me of a rather painful time of my life so it’s very bittersweet to listen to. I’m relieved the time is over but I’m still resenting everything about it so much. It’s a really good song though, definitely worth a listen if you’re into that kind of music.
  5. Highly Suspect – My name is human
    This was the first song I listened to by them, and it holds a special place in my heart. I love how they kind of just question our entire existence.
  6. Daughter – A hole in the earth
    This song talks about how one carries pain inside of them and that they wish someone could make sense of it. It speaks to me on many levels. I like it.
  7. Fall out boy – The last of the real ones
    Sooo Fall out boy used to be a massive obsession of mine for many years, starting in 2003. This is kinda different from the style they had but I feel like it suits me more in the situation I am in now. I probably wouldn’t have liked it ten years ago.
  8. Meg Myers – Motel
    One of the first songs I listened to by her and it has stayed as one of my favorites until this day.
  9. Baron Bane – How does it feel to let go
    I listened to this after a bad break up and it has stayed with me since. It really helped me to cope with everything and I don’t think I would ever remove it from my playlist.
  10. Angels & Airwaves – Anomaly
    Another song that I listen to in the morning. It’s kind of upbeat and kind of sad at the same time, it’s weird but in a very good way.
  11. Blink 182 – I miss you
    This is one of my favorite songs of all time. The music video is amazing with it’s 1920’s visuals and movie vibes and the melody is great. I know it all by heart and I can’t help but to sing along whenever it plays.
  12. Tom DeLonge – Animals
    I don’t know what to say about this one, I just love it a whole lot. I don’t know if it is concerning that Tom has earned four spots on this list so far.
  13. Echos – Silhouettes
    This was an accidental find because I was supposed to listen to their song ‘tomorrow’ but I didn’t remember what it was called at the time. I instantly fell in love with this one though.
  14. Taylor Swift – …ready for it?
    I used to love ‘look what you made me to’ until I listened to this and immediately abandoned the other one. This one is so good and I really like the music video too.
  15. Monakr – Wherever
    I found this on my release radar, or was it weekly discovery list on spotify? Good find though, I like it a whole lot!

  1. Halsdoll
  2. Lisa
  3. Hitherdither
  4. Grace
  5. DanniiJane

 What I read in November.

Some were started in October but didn’t get finished in November. There’s a few shorter stories, but anything is worth reading if it’s good. I think my favorite must have been This Crowded Earth, it’s a very possible future.

Icewall trilogy #1: The Messenger by Douglas Niles

677864

Exiled in disgrace to the harsh land called the Icereach, Kerrick, a Silvanesti elf, encounters a group of barbarian villagers that is making a determined stand against the encroachment of the remnants of a powerful ogre empire that is out to seize control of the frozen world.

Icewall trilogy #2: The Golden Orb by Douglas Niles

677860

Towering aloof and secure, the isolated fortress offers humankind a place to survive and flourish in the barren realm of Icereach. Even the elven Messenger Kerrick Fallabrine has made a home there, living among the humans and teaching them a multitude of skills. But the ogre enemies are always near, and they have developed a powerful weapon, a destructive magic encased within a sphere of solid gold. Its existence forces the humans to confront the threat of extinction that lurks outside their walls.

When the sleeper wakes by H.G Wells

80939

Graham, an 1890s radical pamphleteer who is eagerly awaiting the twentieth century and all the advances it will bring, is stricken with insomnia. Finally resorting to medication, he instantly falls into a deep sleep that lasts two hundred years. Upon waking in the twenty-second century to a strange and nightmarish place, he slowly discovers he is master of the world, revered by an adoring populace who consider him their leader. Terrified, he escapes from his chamber seeking solace—only to realize that not everyone adores him, some even wish to harm him.

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

6185

Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine’s father. After Mr Earnshaw’s death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine’s brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.

The war of the worlds by H.G Wells

8909

With H.G. Wells’ other novels, The War of the Worlds was one of the first and greatest works of science fiction ever to be written. Even long before man had learned to fly, H.G. Wells wrote this story of the Martian attack on England. These unearthly creatures arrive in huge cylinders, from which they escape as soon as the metal is cool. The first falls near Woking and is regarded as a curiosity rather than a danger until the Martians climb out of it and kill many of the gaping crowd with a Heat-Ray. These unearthly creatures have heads four feet in diameter and colossal round bodies, and by manipulating two terrifying machines – the Handling Machine and the Fighting Machine – they are as versatile as humans and at the same time insuperable. They cause boundless destruction. The inhabitants of the Earth are powerless against them, and it looks as if the end of the World has come. But there is one factor which the Martians, in spite of their superior intelligence, have not reckoned on. It is this which brings about a miraculous conclusion to this famous work of the imagination.

The Inmost Light by Arthur Machen

29342363

The Inmost Light, one of Arthur Machen’s most disturbing stories, involves a doctor’s scientific experiments into occultism, and the vampiric force instigated by his unrelenting curiosity regarding the unseen elements. A large and glorious gem-stone is the vampiric mediator; soaking up the soul of the doctor’s wife; in the place of her spirit a demonic energy too-terrible-to-believe enters, transmuting her brain into that of something “not human.” Whilst the stone is the spirit appropriator, it is the process of scientific exploration into dark waters, perhaps those considered taboo, which brings about this horrific energy exchange. Dr. Black steals his wife’s soul; his own energy is then gradually sucked by the stone too. In attempting to enter the forbidden and dark zone of the “other world” for never-before-glimpsed-knowledge, he sacrifices his most valuable attribute in this world. And the sacrifice persists..

This Crowded Earth by Robert Bloch

6314423

This Crowded Earth is a taut and compelling story about an all too possible future. Earth is overcrowded and its resources are being taxed to the limit. The government has a desperate plan, but will it work and at what price? By the author of Psycho and Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper

The Dunwich Horror by H.P Lovecraft

description

The town of Dunwich, Massachusetts is thoroughly unremarkable until Wilbur Whateley is born.His “decayed” and inbred family was already unpopular due to their dabbling in the occult, and when Lavinia Whateley gives birth to a strange-looking child and refuses to say who the father was, it doesn’t improve anyone’s opinion of them. Wilbur grows incredibly fast – he begins talking at 11 months; by the time he’s three, he looks ten years old; and at four and a half, around 15. The townsfolk don’t trust him, as he gives them the creeps even more than the other Whateleys. For all that, though, they’re still willing to sell cows to the Whateley mansion; money’s money, after all, even if it is in the form of weird antique gold coins. Although for some reason, despite the truly vast amount of livestock Old Whateley buys, his herd never seems to get bigger…The household only gets more suspicious with time. The farmhouse always seems to be mysteriously under construction, with more and more windows being boarded up; the townsfolk also suspect that interior walls are being knocked out. When Wilbur is ten, Old Whateley dies, shrieking instructions to Wilbur on his deathbed; two years later, Lavinia Whateley disappears on Halloween night and is never found.Around this point, Wilbur begins to search for an unabridged copy of the Necronomicon, having learned all of what he knew from his grandfather’s library; his copy of said book is a shortened English version, which he apparently found insufficient. He discovers that nearby Miskatonic University has a complete copy, but the librarian refuses to loan it out to him. So he breaks in to steal it, only to be killed by a guard dog.And that’s when things get really weird.

The picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

5297

Written in his distinctively dazzling manner, Oscar Wilde’s story of a fashionable young man who sells his soul for eternal youth and beauty is the author’s most popular work. The tale of Dorian Gray’s moral disintegration caused a scandal when it first appeared in 1890, but though Wilde was attacked for the novel’s corrupting influence, he responded that there is, in fact, “a terrible moral in Dorian Gray.” Just a few years later, the book and the aesthetic/moral dilemma it presented became issues in the trials occasioned by Wilde’s homosexual liaisons, which resulted in his imprisonment. Of Dorian Gray’s relationship to autobiography, Wilde noted in a letter, “Basil Hallward is what I think I am: Lord Henry what the world thinks me: Dorian what I would like to be—in other ages, perhaps.”

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

5328

In his “Ghostly little book,” Charles Dickens invents the modern concept of Christmas Spirit and offers one of the world’s most adapted and imitated stories. We know Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, not only as fictional characters, but also as icons of the true meaning of Christmas in a world still plagued with avarice and cynicism.

 

What did you love this month? 

Monthly favorites: September

♥ Lush None Of Your Beeswax Lip Balm

This was another birthday gift from the lovely Storm. It’s a solid lip balm that reacts to your body heat when you use your fingers to apply it. It smells like lemons, vanilla and mandarin and it feels so moisturizing and nice on the lips. It’s the first lush lip balm I have tried and I’m really impressed!

♥ Batiste Dry Shampoo “Sassy & Daring – Wild”

This was a birthday gift from my sister and I have always wanted to try it. I have sworn by the cherry scented one for a while but boy, I love this one so much! It has kind of a “masculine” scent, not really sure exactly what it is, but it’s great. It goes really well with my Smuggler’s soul perfume too, which is very woodsy.

♥ Maybelline Mauve Mania Lipstick

When I thought I couldn’t have any more mauve lipsticks, I found another one from Maybelline’s collection. This one is just a standard mauve lipstick, but it’s still pretty. It has a way brighter color than what Galactic and Magic mauve has so it’s more of a ‘special occasion’ lipstick for me than an everyday lipstick.

♥ RWBY

RWBY is an american anime web series created by Monty Oum (Rest in peace) and it’s produced by Rooster Teeth. It follows the stories of Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long and their fights against moral dilemmas, monsters and other evil beings. The show has been running since 2013 and has become quite a hit in both the western world and in Japan and it has now a Japanese dub and is recognized as a true anime over there, as opposed to the “cartoon” image it has elsewhere. I recently started over from the beginning and it’s a very emotional experience. I’d recommend this for anyone who’s interested in Anime and want something new to watch.
