Coldplay - Paradise (Peponi) African Style (Piano/Cello) Cover - The Piano Guys ft. Alex Boye

So I just came across this song/video that totally swept me off my ashy feet. It is sang by Alex Boye (some guy who I am sadly just getting myself acquainted to his music), and The Piano Guys were on the instrumental. This song is so beautiful, it shows to you that music is a language on it's own. You may not understand a bit of what he is saying, but you would definitely feel the power of the song. Alex Boye sang the song in different languages: Swahili, English, Yoruba (which happens to be my native language), and he also made use of scat singing. It is a cover of Cold Plays 'Paradise (Mylo Xyoloto)', but in my humble opinion, this is a better version. It can stand as an individual song on it's own, and it is by far the the best song I have heard in a good minute. The whole ensemble of the instruments (Piano, Strings, & drums), and the African feel to it is wonderful. It has a nice video to go with it too. The video was shot on the cliff of a mountain close to Las Vegas (Very unique and intriguing location). Enjoy it below.

Day spent with The Canon.

My dads Canon EOS ELAN II became an accessory for me on this day. Actually my plan for this day, was just to take a picture of this camera and call it a day, but all of a sudden I began taking pictures of my vain self with it. For some weird reason I admire this camera, and it has been so ever since I was a little kid. Yea, my dad as had this camera for about 8 to 9 years. I don't think it looks like it because it doesn't look obsolete to me, but it actually is. Enjoy the pictures below

Supposedly taking a picture

You probably think I am crazy because I am spotting on just an argyle sweater and cropped shorts outside in winter, or you probably just don't care, but actually the cold weather on this day was pretty mild. I am in my new school now, and I am just getting situated. It's a totally different experience out here, but I would be catching up. I have a test in a few and I haven't showered neither do I know what I am wearing out. I need to attend to that ASAP before I blog my educational career away. Hope the new year is going fine for all. Stay blessed.

Time spent with loved ones is priceless. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Happy new year guys!! This was a night out with my parents and I must say I cherish these moments. It's amazing how I watch them and realize that I get a lot of characters from them. The evening started off with me taking pictures of them at home, then going to Walmart, then going to the mall, and finally rounding it all up by having dinner in a restaurant. What I enjoyed most in this restaurant other than the time spent with loved ones was my ever faithful sweet tea (I think that's my favorite drink). I ordered for just popcorn shrimps and fries which I could make on my own at home. They were decent, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Yes my mother has a low cut, and I think that explains my love for females in low cut

We had to wait for a few minutes because the restaurant was filled up so I took pictures of the passage in order to distract myself from hunger, and also because I was a little fascinated with the outlook (wood finishing & corrugated zinc internal roof)

We finally got our seats after a few minutes then we started off with an appetizer called New England Clam Chowder. This was my first time trying it, and it wasn't a bad try.

The food later came, after I was close to passing out, Yea I was that hungry

Then I took this random picture because I liked the way this corner of the wall/ceiling looked

Finally the server was of help in taking this picture of the three of us before we finally took our fat selves home

I arrived back in Georgia yesterday, and I miss them already. School starts in a few days so I am off to go get all I need for school. I hope we all have an amazing new year and I hope we are successful in our individual endeavors this year. Happy new year once again.
