RTA Harlem Shake

12 Feb

If you haven’t heard, there is a new viral video called ‘The Harlem Shake’ making its way around the internet

Seeing that I’m in a Radio and Television Arts Program, it was only fitting that we make our own version. Our professor was gracious enough to let us film near the end of our lecture in the massive AMC theatre! This video could not be possible without the organization of one of our fellow students Michael and the enthusiasm of my RTA Family!

Enjoy 🙂

A Little Pep Talk

29 Jan

Last night I stumbled upon an amazing video. The video in its simplest term is a pep talk.

The little kid who stars in the video who also goes by, Kid President, is absolutely infectious. Whether or not he wrote the script that he recites in the video, his passion and enthusiasm really engages you and makes you want to hear more.

Without giving away to much, I will say that this video will make you smile and really consider what he’s trying to get the world to do.

Kiss Me (Song Sundays)

27 Jan

This weeks Song Sunday is from Ed Sheeran! I have been listening to his album + around the clock. I love coming home after a stressful day of university and listening to his whole album because it is so unbelievably calming.

My favourite song off the album is ‘Kiss Me’. I first heard this song while watching an episode of ‘Vampire Diaries’, and while it was playing I had to shazaam it so I could add it to my collection. The lyrics, which were written by Sheeran, are so beautiful and really have the, at times difficult, ability to truly make you feel as though they were written about you. Their simplicity and imagery makes it easy for you to fall in love with the lyrics as well as the song that accompany them.

I really can’t say enough positive things about this song and the proof is in the pudding. I guess it’s easy to say that I’m a huge fan of Ed Sheeran!

I think it’s a must listen and a song I’ll never get tired of.

Natalie (Song Sundays)

20 Jan

My song of the week is ‘Natalie’ by Bruno Mars.

Last Sunday I finally downloaded Bruno Mars’ latest album ‘Unorthodox Juxebox’ and after his last album ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’ I had very high expectations for his latest music. Luckily for me I wasn’t disappointed. The album was a great mix of pop, blues and a touch of reggae.

Besides his chart topper ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’, one song that really jumped out at me was ‘Natalie’. It first caught my attention because the title of the song is the same name as one of my best friends, so I had to listen to it first.

The song talks about a girl who took advantage of him and stole all of money and he’s talking about and plotting his revenge. I thought it was really interesting and very different from songs we’re used to hearing about, which generally deal with love and heartbreak. I’m not quite sure if this song was written about actual experiences in Bruno Mars’ life, but the the lyrics and the composition of the song really created an authentic feel and that’s why it’s my song of the week.

This week I was introduced to a new British band called ‘The Saturdays’. They have 11 top ten singles on the British charts and they’re slowly moving into the American market base. After hearing all of this I decided to give them a listen. Needless to say, they’re pretty good and their songs are extremely catchy. I have been playing their song ‘What About Us’ on repeat.

As they slowly invade America I’ve heard that they also have a new reality show on E! called ‘Chasing The Saturdays’ that’s starting very soon. I’m looking forward to watching that as well.

I hope everyone has a great Sunday!
