SOTD: This Too Shall Pass – Maria Mena

Song: This Too Shall Pass
Artist: Maria Mena
Album: This Too Shall Pass – Single
Genre: Pop
In short: “This Too Shall Pass” is the lead single off Maria Mena’s highly-anticipated fifth studio album, Viktoria. Written by Mena, the number is her own letter of apology to the people she has hurt unintentionally or intentionally. “The winds of your ego / The waves of My tears / Made The most perfect almighty storm that we’ve seen this year / But experience gathered / We’ve learned from our past / So don’t worry darling / This too shall pass,” sings Mena on the confessional number.

Magnet of the Day

I’m an avid magnet collector, have been doing so for some time, and now has a huge wall full of them, and I didn’t even go half of the places I want to see.
‘t you’re following me on Instagram (@Fhaid), you’d recognize the MOTD series, so far only two magnets were posted.

I’ll be posting the magnet pictures on both the blog and Instagram.

Review: Game of Thrones

I’m glad I didn’t start watching Game of Thrones when it first aired on TV, because waiting a week for every new episode would’ve been torture. The show isn’t revolutionary or ground-breaking, but as far as TV shows go, Game of Thrones raises the bar a notch. Based on the book series A Song of  Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, the characters are brought to life by an astounding cast led by Sean Bean as Eddard Stark, the head of the Stark Hose, and the ever-so-beautiful Emilia Clark as Daenerys Targaryen (one of my favorite characters), the last of the Dragon-blood Targaryens. The story is too big and too complicated to mention in the review, but believe me, you won’t be disappointed with the depth and originality of the plot. HBO’s heads mentioned more than once their desire to have a hit show that’s appealing to all TV audiences, and Game of Thrones delivered one of the best debut numbers, and now is on course to be one of HBO’s biggest hits, alongside the sensational True Blood.

Game of Thrones scored 13 Primetime Emmy nominations, contributing to HBO’s total of 104 nominations, the most of any TV channel… for the 11th year in a row!

WOMANIFESTO

Spotlight: Dance For You – Beyoncé

Beyoncé has made up for the lackluster I Am… Sash Fierce with the excellent 4. While the 12-song set is strong enough on its own, B has included 4 bonus tracks to accompany the record, and luckily out of the 72 tracks she submitted to her label (Yes, 72!! I know.), “Dance For You” made the cut. For fans of Beyoncé’s more sensual numbers (“Speechless”, “Still In Love (Kissing You)”), this one is for you. On the number, B sings “This is beyond sex, I’m high on you”, and we’re all high on this number.

While the design isn’t revolutionary, it still is remarkable, and undoubtedly beautiful to look at. It’s a home office outside your house, if you know… it’s too crowded to spare a desk or two. For more eye candy and all the extra details, click here.

Game: Bioshock Infinite

Before watching the video, I want you to remember all of your favorite shooters…. You did? Okay, now I want you to imagine them all as one big, epic giant… Good? Alright, now I want you to personify Bioshock: Infinite and imagine it wiping the floor with that epic giant, that’s how good this game looks. This 15 minute-long gameplay demo is better than all shooters combined. Words don’t cut it, watch the video to understand EXACTLY what I’m talking about. It’s the Avatar of video games.

The enigma that’s been taunting millions of its followers sporadically is still no where near being riddled out. The latest release (2 months ago) “; john” hints at new beginnings, while still holding onto previous clues and formats. Each video features a song that is simultaneously released on iTunes, and their latest could be one of their greatest. My personal favorite remains “b”, but “; john” plays on different fields, making followers amp their excitement and anticipation for what’s to come.
