Happy Friday everyone!

It is time for my weekly series, “Best of the Week”. In this post I will share with you all the things I’ve been loving this week in the hopes of introducing you to something amazing.

So lets get started!

Videos

I was poking around YouTube as I often do when I found these two gems, Seth MacFarlane doing his Family Guy voices and Adam Levine singing Sesame Street in the voice of the late, great Michael Jackson among other things.

 

 

TV Shows/Movies

This week I’ve been watching Season 3 of Scandal and Season 1 of The Originals on Netflix to gear up for their premiere. However the big news in this category has got to be the fact that all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls is coming to Netflix. *cue the happy music*

This is one of my favorite series of all time and starting October 1st I will be able to binge watch to my heart’s content. Stars Hollow here I come!

 

Music

I haven’t been listening to much music this week however the theme song for Outlander has been stuck in my head all week. It is such a beautiful song and very fitting for the series.

 

Unfortunately I haven’t been in much of a reading mood this week so there are no books to share.

What are you obsessing about this week?

Let me know in the comments below!

Happy Friday! 🙂

Hey guys, it’s Friday!!!

Today I will be kicking off yet another new series for the blog, the “Best of the Week” series. Every Friday I will be sharing what I’ve been loving during the week. It’ll mostly consist of media; clips, songs, shows, etc however it won’t be limited to this at all.

So without further ado lets jump into the first list!

Videos

As per usual, YouTube takes up a lot of my time. I just get so lost in my subscription box and the recommended videos, it’s ridiculous. However my favorite video this week has been Superwoman‘s parent’s reaction to Nicki Minaj‘s music video for Anaconda. It is hilarious and a must see!

 

TV Shows/Movies

I haven’t been watching a lot of movies or TV shows this week however I am obsessed with the new series Outlander on Starz. It is so amazing and Jamie is so swoon worthy and his accent, his accent would bring girls to their knees. Below I have provided a fan video with a mash up of a lot of Claire and Jamie’s moments together.

 

Music

I’ve found myself reverting to my teen self and so this week I was obsessed with N’sync’s last album, Celebrity. I’ve been listening to it over and over and just enjoying the fun upbeat songs, the break up songs and of course the beautiful ballads on the album. It makes me sad that they broke up.

 

Also I’ve been loving Michael Jackson’s songs Speechless and Heaven Can Wait. Those songs hit me right in the heart! Beautiful songs by a legendary singer.

 

 

Finally I’ve also been jamming out to songs from movies such as I Will Follow Him from Sister Act and Prince Ali from Aladdin.

 

 

Books

For some reason all I’ve wanted to read this week is manga, lots and lots of manga. And not just any manga but romance based, school life, drama ridden manga, which as far as I’m concerned are the best ones.

The two I powered through this week are:

1. Asa Made Motto by Shin Yumachi

Synopsis: Mitsuru is gentle and kind, and he’s deeply in love with Aoi. Ryo, Mitsuru’s twin brother, is stoic and brutish and loves to tease and torment Aoi. The choice should be clear, so why does Aoi find herself so much more attracted to Ryo…?! (Taken from Manga Reader)

 

2. Gakuen Ouji by Jun Yuzuki

Synopsis: The stage is set in the prestigious Private Jyoushioka High School — or more commonly known as Joshi High. It became co-educational a few years ago, but females still heavily outnumber the males. The number of males could be easily counted. While one would think males would be pampered in such a harem school, the reality is far from being heavenly. It was the world of female domination. (Taken from Manga Reader)

Happy Friday! 🙂

Today would be Michael Jackson‘s birthday if he was still with us.

He’d be 52, but he died July 25, 2009.

I can still remember coming home, going on Facebook and seeing all the comments and status messages hoping, praying that he was still with us. I remember the bickering about whether he was dead or not. I remember the sadness when it was revealed that he was gone.

I remember all the award shows changing their plans and doing a Michael Jackson themed show or a tribute of some kind. I remember watching the funeral, I remember the radio stations playing his songs every day for months, I remember seeing his posters, his clothes, his memorabilia everywhere as everyone tried to hold on to a piece of him, a piece of legend.

I remember downloading all his albums the day he died, I remember watching all my favourite videos, I remember arguing the fact that his father, and the media frenzy that surrounded him was what made him so insecure and lonely. I remember saying we did this to him, he was just a little boy.

It’s been a year and some now since he died and I’m still sad he’s gone. I’m sad that I’ll never get to see him in concert and I’m sad there’ll be no more songs but I’m starting to let go. No, I’m not a crazed fan, just a lover of great music and Mike wasn’t just great he was legendary.

So every time I see someone in a MJ jacket or his silhouette painted somewhere I smile because he still lives on in our hearts.

So Happy Birthday Mike! You did great! 🙂
