Anna Kendrick | ‘Cups’ (New Radio Version)
With the success of the film ‘Pitch Perfect’ - rumor has it that Universal is releasing a new radio version of the fan favorite ‘Cups’ by Anna Kendrick to radio stations. This new edit has a sound very similar to Phillip Phillip’s ‘Home’ or some of The Lumineer’s music. It’s still catchy as ever and will probably find even more success now that it has a proper radio edit.
By the way, my words were faded.
Rather waste some time with you.
it was dawn that broke the long silence;
clear waters churned by violent wayward breeze;
ripples to waves; waves to riptides.
the unfathomable depths had much to convey… unimaginable sorrow for the turmoil in her seabed;
only to keep still after the morning’s hush; the turbulence to foam, reluctantly rushed.
and she remains… calm but unsettled.
“i am the sea. i am serenity, i am destruction. i am a two-sided coin…and i plead, yearn… take me in as one, despite my imperfection.”
It’s been three months and yet you make me feel as highschool-giddy as the day we met. You, despite the humdrums of routinary life, never fail to make every day special with your little (and sometimes grand) gestures of affection. You never cease to woo and sweep me off my feet, and you don’t seem to tire of showing how much you care. It’s like you never stopped courting me… everything still feels like day one.
Hun, I love you… every bit of you — your nuances, your peculiarities — the way you run your fingers through your perfectly raven locks when you’re feeling proud; those random snorting sounds you make with every hearty laugh; the funny instances when you cock your head back when you’re sarcastic; the way you tightly hold my hand and tug me close when we’re together; those heart-warming moments when you stare at me with sincere, brown eyes; the way your voice sounds so sweet when you whisper in my ear…
Thank you, my dear, for being with me for the past twelve weeks. Here’s hoping we’d stay this consistently in love for the next months, nay, years. <3
Hugh MacLeod, Ignore Everybody: and 39 Other Keys to Creativity
Apparently, not everybody wants their crayon back. We can’t expect everybody to be creative, but I’m glad my guy and I are making a living out of it. It’s also what makes our relationship interesting - the ways of saying (and showing) “I love you” is delightfully endless. :)
I’ve stumbled upon my first ever major website, The Nisan Sanctuary, which was, surprisingly, still up and running. Huge thanks and kudos to The Contact (Gautam Vaseduvan - wherever you may be, I hope this little note of gratitude finds you) for keeping the website alive.
This old-school page I’ve linked — something I’ve made and written during my early years as a webdesigner, circa 1999 — gives me this sense of accomplishment as I retrace my footsteps to where it all began: A Xenogears fansite. Everything that has started from a small hobby is now my major source of income.
Thank God for dreams. ^_^
Here’s a repost of the page’s contents, just in case the link goes down again.
PROLOGUE: The fulfillment of a dream
I am a living testimony of change. As I rummage through the annals of a lost era, I have stumbled upon evidences of my former, pathetic self. Five years ago I was:
b. an ignoramus.
c. an impetuous, reckless turd.
d. a hopeless romantic, a stupid daydreamer.
e. did i mention stupid? YES I WAS STUPID. :))
f. thinking too much, of hopeless things, of inconsequential things.
Hah! Indeed I have matured (a bit), mellowed down, grew boring… but at least I haven’t lost my sense of humor. :))
And after all that shit I’ve gone through… I’m still alive, better, happier, more fulfilled. Yes, there is a God! :P
