Tattoo Thursday (Harry Potter)

Hello everyone, I thought Tattoo Thursday needed to come back and since I’ve been introducing my mum to Harry Potter and reading the books myself I thought this Tattoo Thursday should be dedicated to Harry Potter. Enjoy!

Not a super long one but I wanted to get one up since it’s been a while. Let me know what you want to see next, have a great Thursday!

Anime Soundtracks

If you watch anime, then you know that it can have some of the best music. Especially they’re intro and outro music. In this post, I’ll share five of some of my favorite anime music with you (and perhaps persuade you to watch some of them).

  • One Piece – We Are

This was one of the first animes I had ever seen when I was a kid and this song is still one of my favorites. It’s upbeat, fun, and charming. The song perfectly reflects the core of the show and its characters. Pirates, superpower like abilities, and adventure. What more could you want? Honestly, if you haven’t seen One Piece you should go watch it.

  • Inuyasha – Change The World

Inuyasha was another one of my first animes and welcomes you into the world of fantasy with this bright and gung-ho song. It’s a hopeful little song that is just bursting with energy and feel (bit like the show itself). It’s sure to cheer you right up and brighten your day.

  • Blue Exorcist – all openings

Okay slightly cheating on this one, cos this video has all three openings themes but they are all just SO GOOD and I couldn’t pick one. These all have this sort of this breaking free vibe. They’ve got this nice catchy beat that just makes you want to dance (and we have, trust me). These ones are also incredibly fun to sing along to.

  • Mushishi – Shiver

Mushisi is one of the most beautiful animes that I have ever seen and it’s opening themes reflect that, but this one is my favorite one. It’s just so relaxing and inviting. You feel like you can just sink into the music and let it engulf your senses and transport you somewhere else. If you’re looking for something calm and relaxing then this is the way to go.

  • Bleach – D-tecnoLife

It was incredibly hard to pick just one because ALL the music from this show is just amazing. It was between this one and the first and fourth intro. (AKA go check them out) Again, just so many feels from this! It just gets you pumped up and gives you that I can take on the world type of feeling. It’s one of those that keeps you coming back to it.

 

Okay, so that’s all for today. I really enjoyed this one so if you guys like it I’ll do some more anime music ones and explore some more intros and maybe some outros and in-show themes as well. These are some really great animes so I highly suggest you go check them out. Have a great day guys!

FanArt Friday 4/07/17 (Theme: The Walking Dead Pt.2)

Hey every one, been a while since I did this I wanted to bring it back, so, it’s FanArt Friday! Now, as always, none of this work is mine, I did not make these. I just really appreciate them, love them, and want to show them off. In light of the season finale this past Sunday, this weeks theme is The Walking Dead. So, enjoy!

Timothy Omundson and Why You Should Love Him

MV5BMTQwNTkzMjY5NV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNDIyMzI4MTE@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,667,1000_AL_.jpg

Okay, so you see this man right here? Okay, this man is freaking amazing and one of my favorite actors. Now let me tell you why.

First off, he’s funny. Like really really funny, and not just on screen but off as well. He can sing and dance, like really well. Go watch the television shows Psych or Galavant. Galavant is a musical comedy that breaks the fourth wall and pokes fun at the classical fairy tales. Really great show. Psych is just a super funny show in general and there is a musical episode that showcases Timothy’s amazing vocals.

King Richard from Galavant
Psych
Carlton Lassiter from Psych

SPN-Cain2But one of my favorite things about him is that while he can play the funny comedic characters, even boarding dopy at times (in a good way, I’m looking at you King Richard), he can play there very serious, powerful, and even frightening characters like Cain in the television show Supernatural.

And if none of those are enough for you he also made guess appearances on Warehouse 13, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Criminal Minds, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, Deadwood, Fraiser, Seinfeld, and that really really cheesy Disney Channel Movie Luck of the Irish.

He’ll be playing God in the show Lucifer (which I stated in my last post, I LOVE this show)

Honestly, he’s an amazing actor, great person, and you just gotta watch some of the stuff he’s in. I promise if you’ll love him. If that’s not enough here’s a couple videos to change your mind.

Sorry for the Russian subs on this next one but it was the only way I could find the full version.

Go watch Timothy Omundson, he’s amazing. You’ll love him.

Have a great day guys!

10 Soundtracks For The Music Geek

Hello all! So, I don’t know about the rest of you but I love a good soundtrack. Film/Television music is what I study/work to. To me, the music always conveys so much feeling and emotion. So, today we’re going to look at 10 of, what I believe, are some of the best soundtracks. Links to these soundtracks will be provided. Enjoy!

1. Rogue One

mnzyrwtl

This soundtrack is near and dear to my heart. Star Wars has played a big part in my life, it was the first thing that I ever became a geek over. The music of the entire series is phenomenal but there’s something about Rogue One in particular that just captures my attention. It’s beautiful, haunting, lamenting, and hopeful. The album is composed by Michael Giacchino and if you love Star Wars or really if you just love beautiful music then I suggest you listen to this album.

 

2. Vikings

fbff0f9b18198168c5fe963946f28b8b

Vikings is a show that follows the lives of Ragnar Lothbrok and his family from peasant to king of the Vikings. The music reflects the themes of the show: dark, powerful, tense, mystical, eerie and beautiful all in one. It’s not for everyone for sure, but it has this way of drawing you in. I’d highly recommend it for fantasy and historical fantasy lovers. Travis Morris is the composer and you can find the first season’s album here.

 

3. Studio Ghibli

screen-shot-20140718_090556

Joe Hisaishi is a musical genius. If you have ever seen a Studio Ghibli film then you know just how amazing his work is. The music really helps shape the worlds you see and the characters you meet. I cannot sing this man’s praises enough. This music covers everything: beautiful, magical, creepy, lamenting, hopeful, fun, depressing. When I say everything I mean EVERYTHING. And that is why that I say his work is for everyone. Here’s an ensemble collection of all of his Studio Ghibli work, go listen to it.

 

4. The Lord of the Rings

fotrcd-cover

I couldn’t leave Lord of the Rings out of this. LOTR is by far one of the BEST soundtracks out there. Howard Shore blows your absolute mind away by creating such beautiful and inviting music. I’ll admit, a few of these songs have made me cry before. They’re THAT good. Any fantasy, or frankly any music lover in general, should listen to this album. And, if you like this then you should also check out The Hobbit soundtrack as well. (It should be noted that the links go the first films albums and not all three because I trust that you can find your way to the next one from there.)

 

5. Pride & Prejudice

0028947630883xr

Now, before you jump on me and say “this isn’t geeky!” hear me out. I’m a classics and literature geek as well as a Star Wars, Lord of the Rings geek. I love Jane Austen & Edgar Allan Poe as much as I love Doctor Who & Walking Dead. Dario Marianelli & Jean-Yves Thibaudet have created what I believe to be one of the most beautiful albums ever. It’s full of life, beauty, fun, love, and even sorrow. It’s incredibly moving music that takes you on a journey if you just listen and let it move. It’s not for everyone, but I honestly think everyone should give it a try at least once. For all you classical lovers, be it books, film, music, and for those of you who just love beautiful music, I highly suggest you give this album a go.

 

6. Doctor Who

SILCD1345 Dr Who Series 5 Cover.jpg

Doctor Who is another series with absolutely amazing music. Murray Gold is phenomenal and his music reflects the show perfectly: fun, quirky, painful, sad, hopeful, and so on. There is so much music for this show, and it’s all good and I highly suggest you listen to it all if you can, but for me the 5th series holds a very special place in my heart. The 11th Doctor is my Doctor, The Time of Angels & Flesh and Stone were the first Doctor Who episodes I ever saw. 11 and this series is what made me a Whovian, and the music played a large role in that. Every Doctor Who fan should listen to this but I really suggest it for any Science Fiction lover.

 

7. Gladiator

710FDXy1Z4L._SL1200_.jpg

If you don’t know Hanz Zimmer then we’re about to change that. Hanz Zimmer is right up there with John Williams and Howard Shore. If you don’t trust me, which is fine, then let me give you a glimpse of his track record: Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lion King, The Dark Knight, The Last Samurai, The Thin Red Line,  Inception, 12 Years a Slave, and Interstellar. So, do you believe me now? This particular soundtrack is one of my favorites. It mixes haunting with beauty. You get the feelings or war, pain, sadness, determination, and in the end hope. Again, I highly suggest this for all you historical fantasy lovers out there.

 

8. Inception

9574648dade144d59e5f0fa1dfb637cc.png

Look, you got me started on Hans Zimmer and now I can’t stop. But for real though, this is another phenomenal album. The music is just absolutely gorgeous and moving. It sucks you in and you lost yourself to it. Time is one of my all time favorite songs on this album and if you’re doubting me, go listen to it. This album reflects the themes and feelings of the film, bending and twisting your mind as you go through this mind bending journey. I suggest this album for all music lovers in general because frankly I think it works for everyone.

 

9. Game of Thrones

Soundtrack_Season_1.jpg

Game of Thrones is another fantastic soundtrack series. The Main title alone hooks you. Ramin Djawadi does a spectacular job of bringing this series to life with his music. It’s full of what every fantasy series needs: the mystery, the battles, life, death, love, pain, treachery and the music conveys all of this. I suggest this for all fantasy lovers out there as a must listen to.

 

10. Pirates of the Caribbean

POTC2CS.jpg

I told you you got me started on Hans Zimmer! The Pirates of the Caribbean has some of the best soundtracks out there, and they’re all great. But, I find the second one Dead Man’s Chest to be my favorite. You should go listen to them all but here’s why the second one is my favorite, every single track is amazing. There’s not a single one that doesn’t draw you in and make you crave more. There’s action, creepiness, sadness, fear, everything. The Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack is for all fantasy lovers and for the historical fantasy lovers.

 

Okay! So, that was 10 soundtracks that I think every geek should hear. Now, these are all relatively lyricless ones, focusing purely on the music itself. So, if you would like me to do one that has lyrics like Disney or musical films then let me know! I hope you guys enjoyed this, let me know what else you would like to see, and have a great day!
