Marina and the Diamonds - How To Be A Heartbreaker

Marina gives dating advice in one of her hottest tracks yet 'How To Be A Heartbreaker'. While her first album was just too much for me (as VertigoSchtick wrote "On her debut album she served a batch of largely well-written pop songs like an omelet made from eggs laid by hens in the coop she'd built in the backyard from toothpicks and superglue and cooked on a stove she powered by riding a bicycle backwards, dyed green, put sprinkles on top and a smiley face made of ketchup, and served on roller skates dressed as Bugs Bunny." It was exactly like all of that. In this track, you can tell she's trying to cater for the masses, aiming for airplay rather than anything else and she does it surprisingly well. While this isn't my favourite song in the world, it makes a pretty decent track to run along to.

I absolutely love this song - but it came out ages ago, right?

My Unofficial Official Idol Best Friends
So as Kpop fans, we all know it's healthy to be crazy and delusional with a healthy dose of keep your distance (and maybe a bit of sanity). So excuse my unreasonable rationality on this. (Or maybe it is rational). #healthyimagination Since I have been k-popping it for some time now, I have developed this group of idols I swear I would be best friends with based on their and mines (and my current friends) personality. I'm mean with reason, I have to at least measure the friends I hang out with now to see if I could hang out with these idols? Right? Wrong? Who cares..... So here is my list of best friends starting with my closest one. FYI the stories of our friendship might be a little bit long and totally made up ^^...... First up we have the ever so adorable Baro. Yes B1A4 Baro would be my best friend. In fact, out of all the idols I know (I haven't met any yet) Baro is the one I am closest to and I have known the longest. We can chill talking about music, movies, games, books, and literally anything that comes to mind. We will always be there for each other since nothing is more important to us than our friendship. And all though we love each other, we are reasonable enough to not drop anything we're doing to go running to each other. We will check up on each other to see how the other is doing if we couldn't hang out for awhile. Especially after things like a break up or a relative passing or even issues with our careers creating an identity crisis for us. Visitations are always in order and having/owning a key to the others house/apartment is a requirement. Long story short, I will always be there for him. And he will always be there for me. Seeing that we are both September babies with our birthdays just 5 days apart (Sunwoo on September 5 and me on September 10), we work well together when we set off on any type of project. Of course we would bicker like real siblings, and drive each other crazy. I mean who wouldn't if they have known each other for as long as we have. To top it all off we are super supportive and critical of anything the other does. An example is if either one of us wanted to go down a different career path and wanted to go to school for it. We would weigh out the pros and cons and then we would check the reasoning for said friend embarking in a new direction. (FYI: following the dreams of your idol is not the same as following your own dreams, unless you're the lead female in Playful Kiss starring Kim Hyun Joong and Jung So Min then it is okay because he is your dream and you must follow your dream to the end of the earth and then get married to said dream. Good luck with that!!! ^^) So basically us Virgos will stick together through thick and thin and be the bestest friends forever! Next up on my friends list is the fiercest and most misunderstood (well, one of the most misunderstood) females I know. It's the one and only HYUNA!!!!! For years now my poor friend has been over-sexualized and thus criticized for her over flowing sex appeal. But to be honest, Hyuna is a really sweet girl that loves to party and have fun. At the age of 22/23 we still want to be young and milk our youthful features and figures for all it's worth. Being normal and conservative is overrated and unnecessary. And to be honest, Hyuna is very outspoken (with reason) of what she wants done. I will admit that Hyuna is more attractive than I am. ~(>^~^<)~ But that's cool. Together the two of us have amazing one-on-one girl time. Chatting over our favorite foods and downing all the sweets that we can get. Talking about whose the hottest idol and whether or not we like him and then being upset if the other doesn't agree with us. Of course, we dish details about current boyfriends or crushes and we size up whether the guy is worth the trouble. We spend time window shopping and eventually buying things for each other and ourselves. Since I'm not too big on 'ink' (tattoos), we agree that a charm bracelet unique to the two of us is what we need to identify our friendship to the world. Since Hyuna is older than me (by only 3 months), she gets to obnoxiously play the older sister and act like she knows more than me and is more mature than I am. But to be honest we're both mentally still kids. #kidsatheart #youngforever Over all, Hyuna and I share a unique bond that cannot be shared simply through words but felt whenever we are spotted together. Forever my best friend. Forever my ride-or-die. Forever my twin. Next up on my list of friends is someone you wouldn't have expected. I haven't known her for long but ever since we met, we clicked and that was that. My Goofy/Derpy twin, Hani. As one of her closest friends, I get the privilege to call Hani by her real name Hee Yeon. Together Hee Yeon and I are like two peas in a pod. We're either smart together or we're dumb together. And on the off chance that one of us understands something the other doesn't, we generously explain it. But our slowness is our charm and a charm only we allow ourselves to laugh about. We honestly don't mean to be slow, we just don't catch on to things sometimes. We don't always have slow moments though, there are times we are super into a conversation and know everything we can about it. These said conversations are not always about idols but mainly about things that really interest us; starvation, animal cruelty, third world problems, money and taxes, and ever so often we throw in a good mystery book or drama because we just love our mystery. Over all, you can catch Hee Yeon and I throwing weird faces at each other while taking selfies or wearing matching outfits to show case our unique friendship. Next up is someone everyone needs....... Everyone needs at least one obnoxious friend that you want to beat up but still love and will defend because you know that they are good person. Well that person for me is Ji Hoo. Yup, none other than Block B Zico. This boy loves to mess with me and my love for owls. (I totally have an obsession with owls and have tons of owl jewelry). Every time I call his name (Ji Hoo), he starts echoing me with his own set of 'who who', sounding like an owl. /\(>_<)/\ *angryface* Clever and mean at the same time, Ji Hoo, is the special third inclusion to my Virgo club (starring Me, Sunwoo, and Ji Hoo of course). Ji Hoo always leaves me speechless with the lyrics he writes for his songs and then stunned at how annoying he can be. Same as with Sunwoo (Baro), I argue with this boy like a true sibling and defend him just them same. No one can talk bad about my brother but me (and well his older brother Taewoon of course). Unfortunately Ji Hoo and I get very heated in arguments and refuse to back down. We might spend days not talking to each other but I would eventually give in since I don't know how to keep a grudge (no seriously I don't). In the end, among us Virgos, Sunwoo, Ji Hoo, and I, we have formed our own little click and occasionally hang out together. Our own version of the Three Caballeros or the Three Musketeers. We're not exactly a rough bunch together but we know how to have our own type of fun. Finally my newest adorable and talented friend is Yoda....lol I mean Chanyeol. EXO Chanyeol is a relatively new friend for me but we work well together with our passion for music. The two of us often joke around that we should have known each other when we were young so that our relationship would have more stories to it. And it's true since we already act that way. My Yoda and I are always true to each other and ourselves and the best part of our friendship is our ear for music. Honestly if I were more inclined to when I was younger, I would be a talented pianist and guitarist by now. But even though I'm not I still listen to music faithfully and I can tell whether I like something or not and why. There is always something about the beat not matching the lyrics or the right words or phrase not being used when writing lyrics. And my Yoda confides these things to me among others he trust because he wants to me the best musician he can be. So these are my five. And now I am honestly wondering if any of you other Kpop fans have your own group of idols you want to be friends with. Give it some thought and if you want to, you should post your own story of what your relationship would be. I'm personally asking if @poojas, @PassTheSuga, @MattK95, @jiggzy19, and @aabxo would like to give this story-telling a shot. โ€œIf you think anyone is sane you just don't know enough about them.โ€ โ€• Christopher Moore, Practical Demonkeeping ^^V If you think I'm crazy then your just not sane enough --- @stevieq (Me) ^^V I do not own these photos ใ… ~ใ… 
6 Amazing Things Adele Said In Her TIME Interview
Adele. She's the biggest name in music entering her third million dollar selling week in the United States. Her album '25' is arguably the most popular album of all time and yet Adele remains humble. She's a class act and has been enjoying her time in the spot light after taking a four year break to get a new boyfriend, have a child, quit smoking, and fix her vocal cords. She's happy and vibrant with a new look showing off her lost weight and untraditional beauty. Adele is about to set off on her European and North American tours but for now is only promoting the album, as if it doesn't have enough press as it is. TIME magazine captured Adele, a raw and unapologetic gem shining brighter than ever. On Motherhood "He makes me so proud of myself, and he makes me like myself so much. And Iโ€™ve always liked myself. Iโ€™ve never not liked myself. I donโ€™t have hangups like that. But Iโ€™m so proud of myself that I made him in my belly. Cooked him in my belly and then he came out of me! This human whoโ€™s suddenly walking around and doing his own thing. I canโ€™t wait to know who his best friends are going to be, who his girlfriend or his boyfriend is going to be or what movies he likesโ€ฆ Whatever my kid wants to do or be I will always support him no matter what." On Social Media "Privacy is key to being able to write a real record, whether people like it or not. My life has changed so much, but Iโ€™ve made the realest record I can make, and itโ€™s the real part of me. How am I supposed to write a real record if Iโ€™m waiting for half a million likes on a fโ€”ing photo? That ainโ€™t real." On Emotions "The fact that Iโ€™m not shy or embarrassed to be falling apart. Everyone falls apart, I think. A lot of people try to be brave and not shed a tear. Sometimes when you know someone else feels as sโ€” as you do, or approaches things in a certain way just like you do, it makes you feel better about yourself. Even though my music is melancholy, thereโ€™s also joy in that. I hope I do bring joy to peopleโ€™s lives, and not just sadness, but I think thereโ€™s thereโ€™s a comfort in it. But I honestly donโ€™t know. If I knew, I would bottle it, and sell it to everyone else." On Parenting "Iโ€™m very self-conscious that I have a kid, and I donโ€™t want him being one of those dickheads, who grows up being, like, 'Driver, driver!' She snaps her fingers. 'I have no clean clothes!' Well, have you washed them? I really donโ€™t want him growing up like that. Iโ€™m very conscious of it." On Fellow Artists "Iโ€™m not throwing shade at anybody, but when you have a six-month build up, donโ€™t expect me to be there the day your album comes out, because Iโ€™m bored. It doesnโ€™t matter how amazing it is. You put seven songs out. Iโ€™ve heard the album. Iโ€™ve heard everything you want to say about it. Iโ€™ve heard it all over radio. Donโ€™t expect me to not lose interest before itโ€™s even happened." On Anxiety "I feel uncomfortable being famous. How long should I feel like that? Because if youโ€™re going to keep making music, thereโ€™s a 50-50 chance youโ€™re going to be famous for the next 20 years. So do you want to be uncomfortable for 20 years, or do you want to just settle into it? I donโ€™t want to have plastic surgery. Iโ€™m going to look like this forever. Deal with it. Once you deal with it, you feel more calm about it."
The 3 Countries Where Adele Isn't No.1
To tell you they're sorry for breaking your heart, Adele. WHAT!? Adele didn't achieve world domination. She may be the biggest star in ALMOST every country in the world however three countries seem to disagree. They're too preoccupied with their own music tastes and Adele just isn't one of them. In 29 international markets, Adele managed to rank No.1 in 26 of them which is basically unheard of. She's the No.1 artist in 110 countries on iTunes worldwide except for three. '3' really isn't a magic number for this pop star. Despite her record breaking album '25' : 3 million copies of the album sold in the first week of American sales alone, being the biggest-selling album released since 2011, the most sold album yearly since 2004, and broke records in how quickly her European and North American tours sold out, Adele pretty much wins...99% of the time. Thanks to Fusion.com, data was collected to show that these countries have different chart toppers and their fans wouldn't want it any other way. These countries have another preference... South Korea Why they don't prefer Adele? KPOP! Its the Korean Pop sensation that seems to dominate the music tastes of the country. The singers are hot. The music makes you want to start dancing. The music videos are strangely mesmerizing. And you've never had a party without wanting to scream at the top of your lungs to the clever lyrics that most Americans don't understand (aka Gangnam Style anyone?). Also, one must take into consideration that Koreans chart differently than most other Western countries. They have : domestic album sales, international sales, and a synthesized chart. Fusion.com found that Adele may be winning over their international chart however her streaming and album sales in South Korea are no comparison to the outstanding domestic sales of KPOP within the country. Here are Korean's top albums: - "The Most Beautiful Life," Pt 2 by the Bangtan Boys - "MATRIX" by B.A.P. - "Dear Santa - X Mas Special" by Girls Generation TTS Japan Why they don't prefer Adele? Japanese only track physical sold copies and as of now, Adele has only sold enough to make her the 7th highest album as of Dec. 7, 2015. Japanese also love KPOP but they're not as influential. It's also important to take note that digital downloads in the Japan music market outsell albums by 400% according to Fusion's research. Here are the following albums that have outsold Adele : - "For You" by Infinite - "Chandelier" by Black Number - "Sight of Blue" by Motohiro Hata Greece Why they don't prefer Adele? Blame it on the way they chart. They tracked how many '25' albums were shipped into the country instead of how many albums were sold total. Talk about bizarre. Even with Greece's adoration for American and British music, Adele only hit the No. 2 spot on Greek charts. They may track domestic and foreign music sales however their marks are harshly skewed. Sorry, Adele. The data didn't help you. Here are the albums that topped Adele: - "Ap' To Vorra Mehri to Noto" by Vasilis Karras - "M' Agapouses Ki Anthize" by Eleanora Zouganeli - "Nikos Vertis" by Nikos Vertis So really, other than MAYBE South Korea, Adele has won over everyone except for KPOP fans. There's always next time, Adele.

Who is HIGHLIGHT???
Hey guys. So for a while now there has been talk about Highlight debuting. Most people have no idea who highlight is, how many members are in the group, their ages, what they look like etc. One things for certain............people have been passing on Legendary rookie group..........so you gotta wonder. How good is this group? What do they sound like? Do I know them?..................Well maybe.................possibly...............................ummmmmmmm YES! Do these five guys look familiar? Do you guys remember the band formerly known as Beast/B2St??? http://youtu.be/ZAzWT8mRoR0 http://youtu.be/8JQJ83aFNo8 http://youtu.be/9JWkOTkhpf4 https://youtu.be/PrKvv4o0Ofs ......oh yeah but there was like another right? A sixth member..............Yes there was. Jang Hyunseung. Also apart of the duo Troublemaker. -------------------------- QUICK RUN THROUGH Sadly that sixth member of Beast departed and the explanation we got was differences in music ideas or so. Shortly after this the contracts for all six Beast members and Cube expired. This gave way to other possibilities and the remaining members decided to leave Cube and start their own label. (Around Us) Jang Hyunseung decided to stay and do another contract with Cube. Now that the five had left there was still an issue with the Beast name. Cube had the rights to that name for more years meaning the boys could not promote under that name since they had left Cube. After intense thinking and talking back and forth with Cube the boys decided to give up on the Beast name for the moment and promote under a new name........dundundunduuuuun HIGHLIGHT was born. This name is a song title from the past album. Alrighty now to introduce you to each member of HIGHLIGHT. DO YOU KNOW THEM? Well here are the links for the cards that lead to each member.

Music When The Lights Go Out: Songs To Help You Sleep
There is nothing worse than laying in your bed trying to fall asleep. Your eyes are darting around under the lids. The lights are dim, and yet, your brain won't shut off. The impulses are still firing and yet your body is exhausted. You want nothing more than to drift off to dreamland. Music is a huge deal as far as psychology goes. It can help with productivity, working out and even sleep. When you're having trouble drifting into subconscious bliss turn on these tunes and put your mind at ease. Before you know it, you'll be dreaming with the best of them. Instead of water sounds try... House of Cards by Radiohead Radiohead is a great band to listen to when you want to chill out entirely. Their music is cinematic and atmospheric, which is great for catching Z's. Radiohead's music fills the room, and will create a sonic coccoon for your slumber. Totally cool right? House of Cards is a slow building song with almost a lullaby effect. Thom Yorke's haunting vocal soothes as the song ebbs and flows like waves. It's totally better than contrived water sounds. Check out the OK Computer album too. It's full of grade A sleepy time tracks. Instead of rain and thunder sounds try... I Am The Rain by Peter Doherty This song always calms me down. It is melancholy at its height. It's a dreamy acoustic track that even has rain sounds in some of the background. It has a lot of elements that remind you of that chilly spring rain that comes when everything is falling down. It honestly is beautiful, and yes I have a bias towards this artist but still..you can't deny the power of a brilliant acoustic ballad as far as sleep goes. If you want more, check out his solo album Grace / Wastelands it's largely acoustic and very mellow. Great songwriting too. I've fallen asleep to this album many times. Instead of white noise try... Stay Covered by Thirty Seconds to Mars This may be a more edgy and deliberate version of Rihanna's smash hit, but it really gets the job done as far as sleep goes. Jared Leto's voice is a lot more gritty and steady than Rihanna's and the subtle backing provides a really smooth soundscape. If you let yourself concentrate on the driving beat and subtle lyrics of this song you'll fall asleep in no time. I highly recommend Thirty Seconds To Mars' album Love Lust Faith and Dreams, there are a lot of atmospheric tracks that build just like the first song on this list. I think it's good to have music that fills the room, it creates a safer space and enables your mind to shut off faster. Instead of animal sounds try... Number One Party Anthem by Arctic Monkeys This song's title couldn't be further from it's musical content. This song is a slow burner, like a candle being blown out at two A.M. It simmers as it goes on. This song is a rarity in the Monkeys' catalog. And it stands out as one of their best. Alex Turner's dreamy vocals fit perfectly with the acoustic vibe and are a sure fire way to help you get some rest. Try out their album A.M. which features a lot of slick tracks with even vocal quality and driving beats. This sort of regulation will help with sleep. What are your favorite sleepytime tracks? I'd love to hear from @nicolejb @allischaaff @terricariley @InPlainSight and @buddyesd and any other music lovers out there!
