Pumped Up Kicks Cover By Eilidh McGuire

Howdy y'all :)

I have yet another youtube video for you! Sorry if you don't like all the youtubeness that seems to be invading the blog more video won't hurt surely? And anyway, this is an important heads up to you all out there! The girl in the video is Eilidh McGuire and she lives around my area, but what I really want to say is that she has just been signed by White Neon records. Aaaand even more exciting, Eilidh's EP launch is tomorrow (that's Friday the 30th) at Brennan's in Perth! (Reading this off the poster by the way) the doors open at 7pm and it's a 3 pound entry fee. Sorry my computer doesn't have the pound sign for some reason :/

So, I hope you enjoy the video and like Eilidh's voice, I do :)
Oooh and here's the link to the EP launch facebook page!

Magic - [Walk off the Earth] B.o.B. Cover

I think music class is the best on picking up random youtube videos, this one was (unwittingly) recommended to me by the guy I sit next to, not my teacher! Surprise, surprise! I hate to say this really, but the boy has good taste. I am beginning to take quite a liking to Walk off the Earth, their covers seem to actually improve on the original songs, and I'm amazed how they made this song which is way too over played sound pretty damn awesome. Thumbs up to the beat boxing! But, uhh is the guy who beat boxes wearing a towel on his head??

Walk Off The Earth

I thought I would grace you readers with two posts in one night since they both have a linking music teacher!

Ahhh, how she goes off on a tangent and gives me little youtube gems to share with you all! This time it's not more strange dancing but is in fact a cover of Gotye's somebody I used to know, although there is an element of strange in the video. There are five people playing one guitar! It's absolutely mental! Apart from that in-your-face fact, the girl in the video is Sarah Blackwood and I have posted one of her songs on the blog already (drowning). Oh and check out the third person in from the left - mental vocals!

Enjoy mes amigos

One Big LOL

Hey readers, the two miss b's have gone their separate ways - without baking a cake!!!!! Sorry about that, I will make sure to bake one on Saturday and dedicate it to the other miss b, and post the recipe as well if you like.

Anyway, that news as you may have guessed is not one big lol. Oh no. Haha!

Yesterday my music teacher was helping us go over past papers in class as preparation for our up and coming exams (squeal of fear) and she ended up going off on a bit of a tangent. This tangent was about the terrible experience she had had with minimalist music. As she told it, she went to a lecture and had to sit through twenty minutes of Steve Reich's much acclaimed piece Come Out...or whatever it's called. It's pretty much twenty minutes of this one phrase 'come out to show them.'

Then she got onto the subject of a dance that was put together to go with the music (if you can really call it that) and I thought the way she described it was pretty funny, so I went and had a look on youtube. All I can say is omg.

The Hunger Games Film Review

So... we just got back from watching The Hunger Games at the local cinema and IT WAS AMAZING!!! For anyone who thinks it's just another Twilight look-a-like (as a critic from the i newspaper referred to it as) it most definitely isn't! In fact the film defies the critique it has had from the i newspaper, as the review harshly gave it 2 stars out of 5. However, we believe that we are speaking for the majority when we say that the film definately should have earned a 4 star review.

In our opinion, it only misses out on a 5 as all the small points from the origional book weren't quite fitted in. Even so, The Hunger Games is one of those rare films that actually lives up to its book origional...which leads to my next point. The film makes a lot more sense if you have read the book before hand, as some areas aren't really expanded on, for example the hand gestures. Plus the book gives a lot more background on the characters as well as an insight to Katniss's thoughts. 

Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen)
Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark)

In total, we think the film is brilliant (Josh Hutcherson, I mean come on! Swoon!) but we recommend reading the books first, which are equally, if not even better than the film.

Miss B's Re-United!

So as some of you may know, there are two Miss Bs and we live in totally different countries (well, England and Scotland). Such a distance! But do not fear readers, as there is light in the metaphorical dark! For this weekend and this weekend only, the Miss Bs have been re-united! And now hopefully we will encourage each other to post a lot more on this blog :)

Of course with some of the art post promises, there are problems in obtaining photos, would you believe it! But with everything else, it can only be up hill from here on in. We've got plans to bake a cake (and completely desecrate a kitchen) and go to see The Hunger Games (soooo excited!) so you should see evidence of us actually doing things soon...

The Random Post Of Rambles

Hey readers... yesterday I was trying to post some remixes my brother made of two my chemical romance songs, they aren't dubstepy or anything, just sped up so much it sounds like a gang of angry chipmunks on helium. As it turns out I can't upload the stupid stuff! Aw well...I'll try again at some other point, so look out for that! Also, I will be posting a few more apple related drawings on monday or tuesday me thinnnks. And I also still need to post that painting I was doing with my gran, but I'm not entirely sure when that's going to happen to be perfectly honest. Anyway, since I pretty much have nothing interesting to post about I will leave you with a song or two, which I thought might be a good idea since a lot of other people seem to be doing...

Hey folks! I thought it was about time I resurfaced from my world of homework and studying to provide you all with a post...then again Bobbie did beat me to it so I may as well just shut the computer down and go back to studying...not!

So, here I was, minding my own business on BBC iplayer when I came across a gem of a TV program, albeit a gem full of grimy teenage reality, but a gem non the less. I present to you all, E20! It's a spin-off from Eastenders, but don't be fooled (for those of you who don't like Eastenders) its way better than that sounds! But, if you want to find out more, you'll just have to watch it :)

Kony 2012

Hello people of the world! Yes, I know it’s a bit of a cheesy opening line but for this post I really am trying to communicate to everyone in the world.

Joseph Kony, who is he I hear you ask; well I was wondering the same thing as I scrolled down my news feed on facebook. The latest pop star? Some new youtube sensation? Well all my questions were about to be answered when I happened upon a 30-minute video. This video disgusted, astounded and inspired me. I know you're probably thinking that you've got much better things to do in 30 minutes than watch a video online, but before you discard the idea please at least, read the rest of this post.

Now I'm sure you are all wondering who Joseph Kony is and I'm about to answer this question, Joseph Kony is a 48-year-old Ugandan man, quite ordinary you may think? Well he is also the head of the LRA (Lords Resistance Army) and one of the world’s worst war criminals. He is responsible for the abduction of children into his group the LRA. The girls are turned into sex slaves and the boys soldiers. He forces them to mutilate people and worst of all, kill their own parents. You may now be thinking, why do I have to bother? This must only be a few children a year, 50 maximum? No. This is over 30,000 children.

I'm guessing you're thinking how can I help? I'm miles and miles away. That’s what I thought at the start of the video. But some brave and inspirational people have set up a group called the 'Invisible Children Kony 2012.' They set up this project many years ago, but this year is when their mission has really expanded. This is the year they are determined to STOP Kony, to capture him. After hundreds of supports wrote to the US government asking them to help the Ugandan people eventually 100 soldiers were sent to Uganda to help track him down and stop him. But this could all fall to ruin if the troops are pulled out of Uganda. To do this we have to raise awareness and get as many celebrities and Government Officials to promote this project as we can! We have to stop the government withdrawing the soldiers! Also we have to make Joseph Kony a household name. Make him famous, not to support him but to stop him.

Here's the video folks!

                                           This is Joseph Kony:

Apple Art

Today I thought I would post you guys an update on the art side of things...well, I have a project in art at the minute and its theme is decay. Cheery I know. But it is rather interesting and involves a lot of apples...going mouldy :P, well drawing them mouldy anyway, it would be a bit of a health hazard if we let them go mouldy in class! Here is the first of a series of apple drawings which I hope you will enjoy!
