Morloki

Morloki is the wonderful pairing of two wonderful, evil, beautiful sorcerers. Loki and Morgana. In this particular shipping it is generally accepted that the reprisentations of these characters are by Katie McGrath

and Tom Hiddleston


here's a visual reprisentation

I seriously love this pairing

Think about their characters:
They were both brought up under false pretences, and found out that their parentage was not what they expected. This warped both of them , combined with the magic that they both wield the betrayal that they faced changed them into a more evil entity. They both suffer under the superiority of their older brothers, who hold the crown to their respective homelands. They share a common desire for the crown and are also both filled with hatred. I can't explain it much more they are just so perfect for eachother.

Here are some video representations...




ENJOY!

Transit Of Venus

Transit Of Venus is the new Three Days Grace album that came out today. It is phenominal. Seriously amazing. Now i may be a tad biased, being a three days grace fan for about 6 years now, but i still think my opinion is valid.

Lets start from the beginning.

Sign of The times is the first Track on the CD. I have to admit i was unsure about this one to start with. I had to compare it to Chalk outline which is one EPIC. I was a little unsure because it didn't seem at first to have the large catchy chorus that characterizes most of Three Days Graces Songs. and Adam's voice sounds almost as though he is holding it back, not quiet just not 'unleashing' it. Then of course it changes, same lyrics but it gets much faster, more exciting and heavier. It has quite a sudden and welcome shift. It seems to be a song made of chorus rather than a song within itself, it doesn't seem to have an actual verse just repeated bridges maybe.

Then of course comes Chalk Outline, a monster of a song - in a good way of course. I have become the most familiar with this song as it was the one that they released pre-album release in an epic lyrics video.I never really paid much attention to the solitary man walking broodily through a town but usually to the lyrics layered on top of him. It's a powerful song that's for sure. Its an ode to the one that left him alone, its one of sadness but at the same time he's saying that he hopes she's (assumption :P) missing him. It gives us a picture of someone literally discarding him as though he doesn't matter. The chorus is definitely one to get stuck in your head and the music in the background is distinctive and memorable.

The next song The high road is a bit toned down from the ALMOST dubstep infused Chalk Outline. It reminds me more of one of their songs from One-x but till has a new spin to it. The chorus isn't quite as memorable as Chalk Outline, however that may be due to the lessening of electronic influences. Contrasting to a song of remorseful revenge this song seems to be more asking for change 'will you help me take the right way out' for someone that could just as easily hurt him. 'not gonna let it go' its a song of determination if anything.

Operate is one of my favourite songs, it has the perfect recipe for an unforgettable song, starting off with the chorus helps people to get into it more i guess. This song reminds me a lot of 'I hate everything about you' as he says things like 'don't want to see you on my phone' 'leave me alone' and yet at the same time he describes having .... intimate times with this person. I think it's a simple but awesome song that conforms to many of the stereotypes of Three Days Grace songs. Angry but full of love, lots of repeated chorus's.

Anonymous is almost of a different spirit, like 'world so cold' it focuses on a world thats hard and unfair to live in. And it explains his coping mechanisms. This song uses the repetition of the verses practically, it doesn't have much variety lyric wise and yet the way it plays it almost tricks you into thinking there are two distinct verses. Whilst in fact there is one distinct verse and chorus and a bridge, perhaps with slight variation. don't get me wrong, it works the way they do it. Mixing elements of louder and quieter playing.

Misery Loves Company almost confused me the first time i heard it. I could have sworn that the beginning was that of a different Three Days Grace song, i was mistaken however of course it was pretty much completely different but that doesn't stop my stupid mind from thinking it. This song is broody and uses the cliche term of 'misery loves company' and yet i have nothing bad to say about it really. I like it, the
instrumental music definitely sounds a bit like an amalgamation of past songs though. and yet i think it works.

The next song, Give in to me is a Micheal Jackson cover. I don't like Micheal Jackson generally so i can't comment on which version is better. I vote this one.

ahh i am so lazy. Happiness the next song is basically about Alcoholism i guess, a horrible topic but they dress it up to seem like a legitimate excuse 'when desperate times call for desperate measures'. i don't know why but this reminds me of Dylan Moran when talking about lingerie  'because i want my woman to look like a french fancy' or something. Bit of a random side note. i am lazy so i'll just say its a good song. not as good as others on the album but good.

Give me a reason is another one that i love i think. Although the initial 'oooohhhh''s at the beginning remind me a tad of Coldplay, you'd understand why if you heard it. It starts as one of the softest songs but it has really strange imagery 'feed on me like a vulture on a deer hit by a car' and i think that really works. It's strange but oddly effective.  This song is almost as if he is begging for provocation to do something bad, maybe as justification for something he has done or so he can let out anger. I don't know, i am awful at interpretations because i always get something NO ONE else thinks. or nothing. That's worse. This song also uses a lot of repetition but that oddly enough doesn't get annoying like it would in a pop song.

Time That Remains is the next song. It seems to be a song of Adam advising us not to follow in his footsteps, and to make the most of life YOLO (ARRRRRRGGGGHHHH NEVER SAY THAT) This song is significantly softer than most of the rest of the songs. It's reminiscent of the songs from Life Starts Now, their softest album to date i think (though still awesome) and it still makes use of the 'oooohhh' technique but significantly less Coldplay like than in the last song. It's just nice to listen to and makes more use of acoustic sounding music rather than the heaver or electronic stuff. It doesn't get going the adrenaline as much as the others but it's not meant to.

A complete contrast of the next song, Expectations is writhe with angst and lost dreams. Again reminds me a bit of the song Bully with how he is telling a story almost of these separate characters, who aren't having the greatest of times. The verses are dark low and then suddenly you get a burst of a higher frequency and quicker words of the simple 'Expectations go to hell' chorus. Although the chorus is one sentence repeated it is not annoying. It's like (but better) most pop songs that use SOO much repetition and it ingrains to song into our minds.

I really like Broken glass, the chorus is an emotive metaphor that makes a lot of sense to me 'all we are is broken glass' i think it's very relatable, something Three Days Grace songs are good at. Then the verses are a contrast. They are quick and each line is staccato almost if that makes sense. The gaps between them almost create a beat that you can't help but bob to. Its the stereotypical revolution song i think hat most rock albums seem to have and yet i don't think it is as cliche'd as they usually turn out to be.

Unbreakable heart is by far my favourite song on this album, i think it was a great choice for the last one. I think i relate to this song the most. It's an ode to the outcasted teenager really, people who have given up maybe. 'listen to your head remember who you are' it's like they are saying 'cheer up, ignore the negative message of most of these songs. like can be awesome'. It uses the same technique as anonymous, the repetition of the same verse and chorus but that is ok because i don't think they need to say anything else. Everything that is needed is in those words. i like the way he sings as well, lifting his voise almost for the end of the bridge and the chorus, sounds almost like he's creating his own harmony. (almost the way Chester Bennington sings.)

I just bloody love everything about this album. I was afraid i had too high expectations but basically it exceeded every one of them.

Well done Three Days Grace. You have out done yourselves :)

I've become awful at dealing with things.

What i need is isolation.

But i can't.

I wish i had enough guts.

International Talk Like A Pirate day

International Talk like a pirate day (yesterday - 19th september) was bloody awesome ^^ seriously fun. I decided that, seeing as i started late and had more time, i woul make an effort to dress the part. So i went in in my pirate shirt, baggy trousers tucked into stripey socks with pirate boots, and a bandana and a cool coat. I also brought with me my Gospel of the flying spaghetti monster -

Wherein bobby henderson states that he compared this date to a random date in the year - july 10th - and found that it was always colder. And thus proclaimed it National Speak like a pirate day (correct me if i am wrong.)

also we all know that this day is beneficial to the environment



So the lesson is :

( i don't know who this is i found it on google!!)







Joe decided to start stealing my clothes


Yar har tiddledy die you are a pirate




I was attacked by Joe and Ed and this was forced upon me...


THEN I WAS DEFEATED! they hung me at the gallows.


Because my boots are awesome.

I like Pirates.

Bartholomew Roberts especially.

I know the truth and history behind pirates, i have let go of the romanticised Hollywood idea, i know what they were like. The brutal and savage nature of them does not put me off. I still love pirates.

Fuck Yeah

Now is not the time to fall apart. Now is the time to get my fucking life back together. I have not given up in the past, i will not give up now (well i did give up that one thing.... but i still have scars from doing that -_- (not self harm lol))

I need to pull myself together, get a grip etc. I spent all of today avoiding my friends or ignoring them while i was with them. They do not take kindly to this and too right! they shouldn't. Ed continuously asked me if i was OK and i had to fucking lie to him. Well no more, i will not mope and moan this time. This is not the end of my god damn life. True i am not planning to sleep tonight, and i am planning on avoiding my friends at all costs tomorrow (no upstairs Paul Woodhouse for me... Unless my laptop runs out again, because i don't like the netbooks and i don't know where i can charge it in ashurst :\ Thats what i did today.) One more day of calming the fuck down before getting down to business.

SCREW THAT I NEED MY FRIENDS. UPSTAIRS AND NEW MOUNTAIN DEW FLAVOUR FOR THE WIN!!! SUGAR RUSH TO PICK ME UP!!!

I have a crap load of stuff to do for art and my theory driving test next week to revise for. And i have to make up an excuse so i can miss tutor and give blood next monday. And a classics test on friday. And an essay to write for psychology. My application to sort out for Bournemouth. Persuading my parents to let me resit freaking 2 modules. and my portfolio to sort out. And the comic strip to draw for my brother as well as getting a start on our family's project. Don't want to leave it too late.

And that's just this week. So there is no fucking time to be depressed. All that does is screw everything over and make me fail. And i hate to fail. Especially at Solitaire which is what i was doing from 1.30am-6am this morning. Fucking rule at solitaire now.

So i will be wasting less time doing Shit drawings for DA (they will not help me accomplish anything in life no matter how fun they are to do) and spend more time working on quality art for college and my portfolio. Less time tweeting useless crap no one cares about and more time doing my homework. Less tumblr and more READING!

My feelings just get in the way so they shall be locked inside until i can vent them onto a canvas and make something useful out of it. Life is more fun when smile, even if it is forced. Because it can shift into true happiness if you let it.

I have been living this way all my life, why the hell should i change myself now.

I am Anna. The only emotion i can portray is happiness. Those are the rules.

Deal with it BITCHES.



This is probably the most i have ever sworn in my fucking life. It will probably not be happening again.
(That's kinda sad haha i am such a square :P)


This doesn't mean that i am not sad. I will miss everything. But i won't let it rule and ruin my life if i can help it. And neither should you.

Wilderness :D

My friends and I went to Wilderness this year, it was so very epic ^^ We had a ridiculous amount of fun, the masquerade raves, Bugsy Malone being played around the crowd, and lots of glitter and feathers. We saw so many random bands, most of which I had not even heard of before, the obscure Indie bands XD
Most of the reason i went was to see King charles. Which i did :3 We met him before his set while he was watching Jenny O. He just came and stood right next to us :D so we took the opportunity


I can't be bothered to write the awesomeness so here are some pictures we took on my friends camera :D





















etc XD

Our Day was so hectic.

My friend and I went to London for a night, the first day our challenge was getting to her sister's house. We then proceeded to eat cheap burnt pizza, surprisingly delicious, while watching Weeds from about 8- 4.30 am . It was so worth it. If you have never seen Weeds you totally should. It is soo funny.

The next day though we got soooo lost n shizzle :P

It started off great, having a sort of lunch in Hyde Park
She has no idea i took this photo mua ha ha ha ha

Then to our surprise we saw that BT London Live was on XD and it was FREE! so, of course, he had to attend. Even though it meant throwing away Mountain dew, dr pepper, popcorn and waffles. It was worth it.

Cadbury tent?
Group photo :3 haha

Main stage showing olympic cycling.


LOADS OF PEOPLE

Not as many people at the entrance

casually walking

feet

more spectators.

We then had the pleasure of learning that Mcfly would be playing, how lovely that was XD neuther of us really know them (apart from the good old songs) but it was cool anyway.

I took some videos.





Then we had to rush back to London Victoria Coach station in time for catching our prepaid for coach. Obviously we got lost. went to arrivals instead of departures. And missed it. Luckily i had just enough money for the coach that was 2 hours later and bought us both a ticket. I was distressing but we managed to get everything sorted.

 The man sat infront in the waiting room had cool hair (haha)



 We bought happy meals as compensation for our loss

 Another beautiful team picture ;) hahaha

It was a lovely day. Thank you lily :D
