Of good news and film adaptations!!!

Image
Have you watched Divergent already??? If you did, please don’t spoil it for me. I haven’t watched the film adaptation yet because I’m planning to finish reading the book first before watching the movie. But still there are many upcoming film adaptations of our beloved books this year and I just want to read all of these books before deciding which movie to watch (who am I kidding? Of course I’ll be watching all of it!!!).
I’m very much excited for The Fault in Our Stars. I can’t wait to finally watch two giddy cancer patients fall in love and create a love story so sick it will make me cry blood (pardon my exaggeration).    
Not just that, another John Green novel is set to hit the big screen soon.
Here's the full story.

Adding up to my growing anticipation for TFIOS is the film adaption of Paper Towns. Honestly, I still need to finish other books before continuing my break from John Green’s Paper Towns. But I’m positive that I’ll finish all those pending reads and continue reading P…

"2048" says goodbye to Flappy Bird!!!

Image
After the developer of the frustrating and popular mobile application Flappy Bird decided to remove the app from the App store (and now Flappy Bird is having its comeback full news here), a newer and more difficult game is now the center of everyone’s rage.
Introducing the equally and notoriously addictive game "2048".

Developed by Gabrielle Cirulli the game aims to come up with the "2048" tile by moving the tiles inside a 4x4 grid. Whenever two tiles bearing the same number touch they merge into one and form a new tile with the sum of both combined tiles.
According to the "2048" website the game was based on 1024 by Veewo Studio and is conceptually similar to Threes created by Asher Vollmer. Thanks to the geniuses behind these popular games from which "2048" has drawn inspiration and now is readily open for public consumption.
In order to come up with the highest possible tile (because it’s just so difficult) you must need proper focus and logic. …

LSS: Goodbye (SNSD)

Image
Goodbye is the 2nd track from SNSD's fourth extended play (or mini album) entitled Mr. Mr.
The track starts with a groovy beat which reminds you of a Detective Conan episode (see how weird I associate songs with anime soundtracks?) and then an incredibly twist takes place as the catchy opening perks up into an infectiously gleeful chorus and then more bubblegum awesomeness follows.
The first time I heard the song (although it's a cliche of some sort), I fell in love with it. And then I saw myself uncontrollably clicking the replay button again and again. 
It is nostalgic in a very light and positive way. Whenever I listen to the song it reminds me of a sunny day or a laid-back afternoon getting lazy and snugly in my room with my closest friends. It is a happy-sounding track despite the message of the song which is obviously about the good in every goodbye.
Listen to Goodbye here.

Album Review: 2NE1's CRUSH

Image
Hi guys! It’s been awhile and now my hiatus has come to an end and on that note I present to you a short review of 2NE1’s second full-length album entitled Crush.

The quartet who brought fire on the dance floor and redefined women empowerment through music is back with their latest offering.  Crush is the group’s second studio album following their 2010 hit album “To Anyone”. It has been 4 years since the South Korean girl group released a new album and it has been worth the wait because Crush is literally crushing it not just in the Korean music charts but also in the international music scene as well. So here’s a simple album review of 2NE1’s Crush with some of my favorite tracks from the album.

The album opens up with Crush, an edgy track capable of activating your heart on “hyper mode”. The song is reminiscent of “I Am The Best” but still has its own mix of electronic, hip-hop, and rnb elements making it uniquely eargasmic. The first time I heard the song I fell in love with it ins…
