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!

Spotlight: Dance For You – BeyoncĂ©
July 11, 2011, 20:00
Filed under: Music | Tags: , , , , ,

BeyoncĂ© 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 BeyoncĂ©’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.
