LSS: Anything Could Happen (Ellie Goulding)

I know, I know. The song is already a year old. But compared to her latest hits such as Burn, Lights, and Goodness Gracious I find Anything Could Happen more of an emotional track which in all honesty is more LSS-worthy than her other released singles.

I’m that deep. I dig ballad and mellow-sounding music. Especially when the song elicits raw emotions. That I just find myself in a trance-like state. Before I lose myself let’s continue this entry.

Before Anything Could Happen, Lights made it big especially on the Billboard 100 chart. Lights is a dancey electro-pop song which is quite different compared to the enchanting electro ballad Anything Could Happen.

Ellie confirmed in an interview that she was a bit nervous with the release of Anything Could Happen since it was something new to her fans. But after only five days the music video for the song reached one million views on Youtube which is a good thing.

The song opens up with a whimsical start with dolphin-like noises and stomping beats. Ellie’s haunting yet heavenly voice will transport listeners to another world. A world where everything is possible and anything could happen.

As the track nears to its end you’ll hear Ellie’s willful declaration, “I know it’s gonna be”  a couple of times until the song's powerful climax.

Although the slow paced song seems a sad recollection of a relationship gone bad, Ellie hopes that it will invoke positivity to everyone. The song challenges us to be optimistic in every situation that we’re in; to see the good in every mishaps and to press towards what’s ahead of us.

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).


If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
