Want To Write A Song? Here's How!
Musicians are strange creatures, cursed with melodies spinning around in their heads constantly. It's hard to recognize what words are brilliant lyrics, or just fleeting thoughts. The mind of a musician is a jumbled mess, with little bits and pieces of melodies and broken love songs constantly dragging behind them. My newest effort premieres at the end of this post! So stay tuned if you want to learn how to write music, and where these tips can get you. This card was inspired by @buddyesd and our conversations about music and songwriting over the past few days. 1. The first step is to know your music! Videos: Some of my favorites. I've been a musician my whole life. I started singing in my terrible two's and ended up getting a guitar at age 11 and starting my first rock band at 12. My life has always centered on what band I was obsessed with at the time. It all started with Green Day... Then the Ramones... Then My Chemical Romance... Thirty Seconds To Mars... The Sex Pistols... The Libertines... Neil Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Pete Doherty and on and on. And so on and so fourth. The point I'm trying to make here, is that you have to go through a lot of music to gain the inspiration and the fortitude to start making your own. Influences are a huge part of songwriting. They help you form what kind of identity you want as an artist. 2. Know that the perfect song won't come overnight. Your development takes time! (Video 1: One of the first songs I ever wrote (2009) "The Way You Talk" / tried and true pop-punk) (Video 2: A later rock song, 2014 "Tourist" a little more sophisticated, deeper lyrics, more passion, messy garage-rock feel) I didn't wake up and just know how to play the guitar and write songs, it took time. I sat in my room for hours on end, plucking away, humming, writing down and recording things and ultimately a lot of the stuff I wrote early on was complete shit. It just now, feels like I'm writing really meaningful stuff. So, just give yourself some time, and know that every musician goes through an evolution at every level. I started out writing simple, three chord punk songs in the vein of Green Day, my favorite band. That slowly evolved into more anthemic and stadium-like tunes when I started getting into bands like The Rolling Stones, U2 and so fourth... Now I've evolved into this heart-wrenching raw, indie influenced folk-y sound that is directly linked to my love for Pete Doherty's solo album Grace / Wastelands, a collection of melancholy tracks dedicated to love and confusion. My new song, Counselor (heard here), is a haunting acoustic ballad influenced by more singer / songwriter acts since I'm solo right now. So things have to evolve with the times. 3. Do some research. You have to know where you came from in order to know where you can go. This being said, every musician's routine is different. I just like to pick up my guitar, start strumming a few chords and a melody or lyric will come, and I'll go from there. Some people sit at a keyboard and bang out a melody, Others just jam and find a chord progression they like, to start with and build a melody on top of it. If you're not that experienced, you have to do some research. Look up the greats: Lennon and McCartney, Richards and Jagger. The classics are a great way to look at song structure. Then, look up your favorite artist's songwriting routines and experiment with them, mix and match styles until you feel like you can get somewhere. Like the lead singer of Green Day, Billie Joe Armstrong writes his melodies first, lyrics later. Both come at once for me, melody and lyric, almost always. So it just depends on how your brain works, and you won't know until you try. 4. JUST GO FOR IT!!! Music isn't perfect and most of the time it isn't beautiful or polished. So if you want to start creating your own, just start doing it. Hum melodies, listen to your favorite artists, pick up an instrument and do it! If you have the passion and you want to learn, anything is possible. I'm here to help too, if you have any questions or thoughts. Do not be afraid, because you could write the next number one single in your bedroom...you never know ;)! My newest song, written and recorded on August 12th, 2015 is up on Sound Cloud now, here's the link if you're interested. See! Songwriting isn't hard! ;) "Lying To The Wind" By: Tess Stevens

Best K-pop Dancers (Personal Opinion)
There is different types of dancers out there that would catch your attention by a blink. We all know that dancing is a universal thing so why not talk about some great dancers out there. I got inspired to make this card by @kpopandkimchi because ever since I can remember I've always loved to dance. I guess it runs in the family because my parents actually met at a dance! Haha Anyways... I'm getting off topic! So, I decided to show you a few of my favorite Kpop dancers followed with a short video of their dancing skills. P.S. I think T.O.P in reality is a great dancer! He just likes to tease! Silly Boy! Enjoy! ๋‚˜ํ•˜์€ (Na Haeun) At such a young age and so talented! Na Haeun did her first appearance in public at the age of four in a show called 'Star King'. 2 years later at the age of six she made a shocking appearance to the judges with her cute and fierce performance in 'K-Pop Star 4' where she sang "Do You Want to Build a Snowman" & finished her performance with a hip-hop choreography. Shownu Monsta X's leader wow's me with his dancing skills and he got inspired to persuade his dream by no one other than Rain. Rain Known for his dancing and sexy body! haha but guys we have to keep it PG! Kihyun This one's the one that really got me off surprise! After watching this video and some other videos of Kihyun. I honestly did not know he had this in him! His dance style is very charming. I love it!!! Why can't I do the robot! Oh yeah btw where is my manners I forgot to introduce him! This is the cute and charming vocalist from Monsta X Kihyun!! Watch his amazing robot skills guys! Jay Park If you have not or do not know about Jay Park's awesome dancing skills then you are missing out!! Minzy Minzy is one of the few kpop female dancers that I really admire for her dancing skills! If you don't know who Minzy is she is the main dancer in 2NE1. She actually was discovered by YG from her dancing skills on her YouTube channel. Young Bae (Taeyang) Taeyang from Big Bang is a great dancer! It will have all the girls breathless and all the boys fanboying over his dancing skills! THE ARK They are a K-Pop group that have done many dance covers. They caught my attention when they released their first song 'The Light' but then I started realizing they were really good dancers especially in this dance cover shown above. Most of you ARMYs might have seen BTS react to this dance cover before. They are totally amazing especially to be rookies. Jimin & J-Hope One of my ultimate favorite dancers believe it or not! I think more because of their dorkiness but they are also great dancers. Hands down BTS has a great dancing group! JB This Got7's B-Boy skills are just great! Kai Last but not least... I got to admit even though Kai is not my EXO bias he is totally amazing when it comes to dancing! His performance is just so on point that if I get too close it might poke me in the eye! With a great performance technique you can never go wrong in dancing!! It just makes it look so real! Ok! So now a question! Q: In a dance battle who do you think would win out of all these I stated above? Please leave your answers down below! I'm curious to see how many votes each idol gets!! :D @CreeTheOtaku @KeziahWright @TesneemElAlami @KpopGaby @ChavaBerry @MyaIsNotSexy @Ercurrent @ARMYStarlight @4dalientae @monicacerroblan @JustinaNguyen @LiNaHyun @panouvang123 @LateashaChantae @Tigerlily84 @DaisySalazar @emilyanpham14 @momo143kao @StefaniTre @biancadanica98 @WiviDemol @NSSagasshi @AriannaLopez072 @AimeeH @JBrez @CristelaLoz @baileykayleen @Apink8 @Meeshell @thePinkPrincess @MorganElisabeth @VixenViVi
Playlist of the Week
I just thought I would share my play list of the week. It is a combination of kpop and American Rock...indie music. Some music picks are for mature audiences...so view at your own risk. This is not a Challenge...I know people are super busy with school. But comment below some songs on your Playlist or you can make a card if you wish. If you pick to make a card please tag me. I would like to see what music you enjoy. @poojas @kpopandkimchi @VixenViVi @JazzyPie @shannonl5 @NSSagasshi @ErinGregory @SharayahTodd @dreemer13 @touchmybuttoppa @SarahHawkins @KpopGaby @BlueBear07 @PrettieeEmm @KaceyDodge @glostick @LaurnAntoine @StephanieDuong Incubus Song...Adolescents I LOVE INCUBUS. I FEEL IN LOVE WITH THEM IN HIGH SCHOOL. If you need an introduction to American rock you should check them out. They are a mixture of rock and they have some lighter rock songs. It's cool listening to their old music to their most current music. I love seeing how they evolved. Besides Brandon Boyd the leader singer is super sexy. His voice was the first voice take me have music babies...lol GD & T.O.P Song....Zutter I love these two and they are known for being the double combo. The lyrics are smooth, sexy, and creative. Plus I love the beat. You can't go wrong with these two amigos. Jay Park Song...Sextrip I love this song...but now it for the grown and sexy. The lyrics are for mature audiences....but if you know JP he is not one to be shy. He's very much bold and sexy. This is a nice slow jam and it's in all English. Korn Sings....A.D.I.D.A.S and Freak on a Leash I discovered Korn when I came upon Incubus. This is a hardcore band. Hard rock mixed with in your face lyrics. A.D.I.D.A.S is a mature song with explicit lyrics. The video is explicit too so if you want to see the official video for that song you can search for it yourself. EXO Songs...Playboy...Hurt...Answer EXO OMG!! I love their new album! Actually, all the songs are on my Playlist from this new album Exodus. Playboy and Hurt have very catchy sexy lyrics. They perform it well. Hurt has a sick bass. I love bass. Answer is so sweet. I would love this as my wedding song. I mean who wouldn't melt if their EXO bias said "You gonna get my love" to them. 30 Seconds to Mars Song...Mission This is another rock song. I love the lyrics and the beat. These guys are talented. Jared Leto is the lead singer and he has a powerful voice...plus he'd super cute. Their look has changed over the past years, but they continue to be awesome. Seungri Song...Letโ€™s Talk About Love Now, this video has English translation along with the song. Anyhow... people under rate King Seungri. He's super sexy and talented. This song is so cool. Taeyang and GD are featured on here and HD crack me up with his slick cussing in here...but who cares lol. This song has a nice beat. Seungri did his thang! Desung....Look at me and T.O.P...Doom Dada D-Lite sometimes is under rated too. But he has an awesome voice and is super cute. I love listening to him and watching him perform. T.O.P is an awesome rapper and his Doom Dada proves that. You can't ignore this man. Taeyang Song...Love you to Death This sing has great moving lyrics and the bear is awesome. I was told CL does the female part. Youngbae has an awesome voice that makes you melt all inside. Sorry for the long card amigos, but I hope you enjoyed it. You can tell I have a diverse taste in music lol.
