Great Sounds with Exceptional Guitars

Music has been one of the greatest passions of most people nowadays. No days pass that music is ignored because this is already a part of human lifestyle. I, myself, also love music and I consider this as my passion. In everything I do, music is always my companion to avoid boredom and destruction.

As I exist here in the world, music was already people’s great desire. Whatever they do, regardless of the place, this is always with them all throughout. I love listening to human voice especially if this is accompanied by a musical instrument like the exceptional Gibson Les Paul guitars, totally awesome. As I can observe everywhere, many people of all ages are usually having earphones in their ears whether they are riding on a jeepney, walking down the road or just sitting around the corner. Aside from this, I also noticed that a big bass was booming around every house in the town. This only signifies that music has been their favorite past time and boredom relief.

Music: A Thousand Years by Christina Perri

I really love this song and been hearing it over different radio channels since the Twilight Saga – Breaking Dawn Part 2 opened in cinemas. My kids love it too and practically singing it every morning with their apogee mic. Though they don’t understand what loving for a thousand years mean nor the entire lyrics, they so love the melody.

Last night, when I was working and needed some inspiration, I searched for it in YouTube. Imagine, for about an hour, and until I learned the whole lyrics, I’ve played it over and again! LOL. I know hubby was listening and he knows that it’s not often that I come across a song that would truly perk up my emotion. In short, I was touched by it’s entirety – the words, melody and video and made my eyes teary.

Hubby and I have our theme songs, though I know it’s a bit cheesy (corny), I’ve decided to add it on our list.

Anyway, it’s his birthday today and I’m not supposed to work, lol. So, I’m leaving you with this video and I hope you’ll like it!

Happy Birthday, Hon! I waited for you ’til you came into my life. I will Love you for a thousand years and more!

Scouting for A Musical Instrument Gift?

The Holiday season is just around the corner and some of us haven’t gone shopping yet. Aside from the lack of time, we’re in a dilemma on what to give to our loved ones especially our kids, right? I bet we share the same stressed feeling and I am truly having a hard time scheduling a shopping spree with all the projects I’m handling.

Exercise with your iPod!

Nowadays, when you go to a gym, you won’t see any huge sound system used as music accompaniment when doing any sort of exercises. I used to go to a nearby gym and they had this boom box which played ear tearing music. That was terrible, really, and I wasn’t able to concentrate on the routines coz I kept covering my ears. It seems that the other members of the class weren’t annoyed at all, mainly coz they were young people who enjoyed loud music to the extremes.

Introduce Music To Your Kids At An Early Age

Music is all around us. Here at home, I hear it every single day. I love music more so if it’s my genre, the ’80s (now you know how old I am, lol). Love it when I hear my kids sing their fave pop songs though most of the time, my 5 year old keeps repeating the same songs over and over. Lately, he’s been tapping his cousin’s new 88 key keyboard, pretending to be a musician. On some days, we’ll see him stringing his brother’s guitar or holding the mic while singing Maroon 5’s Payphone.

Galaxy Records and MYMP Acoustic Collection Album Launch

I had an awesome Mother’s Day celebration last May 08. Why? Because I was with my fave band MYMP! After having lunch with my family, hubby agreed to let me go to cover MYMP’s The Unreleased Acoustic Collection Album Launch at the Atrium of Robinson’s Manila.

People came and bought their new album for only Php299 plus a poster.

We had the privilege of interviewing Chin Alcantara and Juliet Bathala, their new vocalist. I’m glad Ms. Ethel Cachapero of PolyEast Records allowed us bloggers to have a presscon with them before they went onstage.

Here’s MYMP in action. I loved the way these two moved and swayed into the music. Juliet’s face reminded me of Nina. She looks a lot like her (in my opinion) though you’ll notice the big difference in their voices. Juliet may be new to the industry, but she’s no newbie when it comes to singing. Her voice as if arising from deep emotions as can be seen in the photos. Ballad is her forte and when I heard her sing, I told myself that she will make MYMP rise above the charts again!

After the mini concert, we (bloggers) went back stage to have our cds signed by them. Of course, more photo opps for us,lol.. After that, they went on to the album signing proper.

It was a very relaxing experience that day and I was really lucky to be one of the few peeps who covered the album launching of Make Your Momma Proud (MYMP for short). I’m guessing this album will be in the Top 10 new Albums in just a few days and will be Triple Platinum in just a few months!

Goodluck to Juliet and just a little advise from a fan – please tell your hairdresser to spray some more hair net or mousse so you wouldn’t be pulling off your hair (bangs) from your face every so often. You’re such a beauty and people would love to see your face accompanying that beautiful voice πŸ™‚
