A Change of Pace

I’m not out of ideas for Inspiring Video of the Week. Not nearly. However, I want to do a video of my choice, since tomorrow is my birthday. I don’t want to disappoint whoever might look forward to the Inspiring Video of the Week, but doing only inspiring videos is a bit dull after a while. To spice it up, I guess, I want to add a song that I really love– regardless of content or message. I have a lot to choose from, so it might take me a little bit to choose as well as to make the video– but… well…
I guess it would be smarter to go on and start looking rather than type about needing to look. So yeah…


Are You Kidding Me?

Remember when I said I tried twice to post that Inspirational Song of the Week? I found where it put it. For some reason, it thinks I posted it on the 18th of last month. Well… That’s one mystery solved, then.

Papa Roach – Kick In The Teeth

Here it is, the newest Inspiring Song of the Week. For some reason, it won’t let me search for it on Youtube– because of safe search. No idea why that applies to this video, as it contains no adult language, nor anything offensive other than mild violence– and other posts of just the video itself were available…. I hate safe search.

Ahead of Time

Since I will be starting work Monday, it will be a bit hard to get the Inspirational Song of the Week out that morning, so I will post it late Sunday night. I won’t give any spoilers what it will be, but I will say that, had I heard this song while I was still in school, my time in school would have been much less painful. I recommend this song to anyone who feels like they’re beat down.

In fact, today I’m going to try and get as many of these videos ready, in case I don’t have time next week. And I will restate that anyone who wants me to make a lyrical video, do leave a comment, and I will try to get it in the near future!

Anger is an Understatement

I tried to look on Youtube for Seether’s song Naked, because I was told there was a new version of it that wasn’t acoustic, and being the fan that I am, I wanted to see it myself. I was upset and confused when I discovered that the song wouldn’t come up in the results in any case. I discovered why: this computer, which I am borrowing until mine is fixed or replaced, was my boyfriend’s, and his parents caught him looking something up that he shouldn’t have been looking for. They put a restrictive program on his computer that filters all the things you find. So I can’t listen to a completely clean song by an amazing band because my boyfriend wanted to see nudie pictures.

*cries softly* It’s quite funny, actually.

Inspirational Music Video of the Week

As promised, here another Inspirational song that I’d like to share with you. This one has no lyrics, has nothing but the feeling, and the performance. That is what makes it so special. The first time I heard it, I was away from the computer, listening to a new playlist, and when I started listening to it I realized how heartfelt it was. I could feel what it was, but being the dense person I am, I couldn’t place my finger on the emotion it was embodying. So I sat down and watched the performance, and after that, I actually read the title. This performance is by Malice Mizer, from long ago when an extremely talented man named Gackt was the lead singer. This video made me a fan of Gackt—can you blame me?!—and even my mother (who tells me to get “all that Chinese-stuff” away from her) approved. The man on the drums was Kami (RIP). Also, if you pull this particular video up on YouTube, you can download the mp3 from a link in the description. So, I share today, Malice Mizer’s LIVE performance of Regret. (I have no rights to this video. I just love it a lot.)

Now, with how absolutely amazing this song is… I hope it has the same effect on you as it does me—because it gets me up and running. It is beautiful, inspiring, and so heartfelt that I believe it could make puppies cry. I listen to this song frequently enough that it has the effect of calming me from anger and giving me the determination to work on/finish old and forgotten projects. This song can make me face just about anything—and that is what true music does.
