Nostalgic Trap

Howdy,

Right now it is 5h30 in the morning, and guess who is still awake and probably will waste his Sunday Morning? Yeah, you guessed right, Peter Panda (the one from Vin Diesel’s babysitter film). But you probably forgot that Peter Panda even existed, huh?

Jokes apart, yes, I am still awake, and the reason is that I got stuck in a Nostalgic Trap. What is a Nostalgic Trap? It is when you see something that reminds you of a really good/fun part of your life, and them it leads you to another them, that leads you to another things and it never stops.

And now the question is: What is my Nostalgic Trap? Old Free Step videos. Why? When I was a teenager, I used to dance Free Step, which actually, was the thing that helped me make friends when I moved to Rio de Janeiro (when I was around 15), and at the time, making Free Step videos was the coolest thing between this group of people. I have over 15 videos of me dancing it. But how did I even remember all of this on a random Saturday evening? Easy! There is a Facebook page that re-uploads old Free Step videos, and one of them appeared on my timeline, which lead me to another video, of a guy who used a song I’ve used in one of my videos… and there I went for almost 2h30!

I’m exhausted, sad and mad at the same time. I truly wish I could enjoy more, right now it seems that I going through a really hard phase, and I now that I won’t have the same type of fun that I used to when I was younger. It kinda makes me sad.

And to complete, there is the fact that me and my ex-Brazilian Llamarina split up, so I’m alone in my journey again.

Alone. Broke. Unmotivated.

Please, don’t think I’m one of this crazy suicidal Tumblr kids, I’m just going through a hard phase right now, and until things get better, it will be hard.

And as usual, last but not least, if you’re reading this, it means that you read some of the things that I needed to get out of my chest and that means a lot, even if I don’t have a clue of who you are!

See you soon, muchachos! 😉

#CRYBABY4PKMN

Howdy!

I almost forgot to show you guys this wonderful video I found a couple weeks ago. It is really nostalgic.

Before y’all think I’m being over-nostalgic for fanboyism, you’re wrong. I wish I liked Pokémon more than I do, but I just hate the generations after the third.

But Big Boy Llama have a sad story…

When I was little, around 2nd grade, my family was recovering from a really difficult phase in your life, and Papa Llama had lost his job, and because of that, obviously, we didn’t have money to buy toys and stuff that only had the purpose to entertain. And that was the time that every single kid got a GameBoy Color and played pokémon after class. Little boy Llama used to go with them, but was the only one who didn’t have one, so, I just looked they playing for hours, every single day. But years later, when Papa Llama had a nice job and finally traveled overseas, he bought us (for me and Lil’Llama, my sister) a GameBoy Advanced SP, a red one, that came with two games, Pokémon Sapphire and Rocket Power, which by the way, was the hardest game I’ve ever played in my entire life. I played Pokémon every day, but after I finished it, I was still curious about the “Mewtwo fight” that everybody always talked about. So, one day, when I had “good” internet and a nice computer, I downloaded a GBA emulator and player Pokémon Red, and the one thing I could remember is that I’ve waited that moment for soooooooooooo long, that when I fought with Mewtwo, I even cried a little bit. It seems dumb, but it was a special moment for me, remembering even a simple thing as a wish to just play a game.

 

And now, probably I won’t watch any movie, because I need to work on the second project of #FavorMarch. There is also the fact I need to wake up at 8am tomorrow.

I’ll probably still make another post before I go to bed. But in case I’m way too tired to write anything…

I’ll see you soon, muchachos! 😉

“BLURRYFACE” by Twenty One Pilots – REVIEW

Howdy!

This is the first review I’m making over here, which means I’m still discovering its formula on how to do it nice.

Since last week, a song called “Stressed Out” is stuck in my head. So, why not listen to the entire album?

“BLURRYFACE” by Twenty One Pilots

Apparently, this is Twenty One Pilots’ third album, but is the first one I’m listening to.

My first concern was that this album could be one of those albums you listen, but it only have one really good song, and that’s it for the day. But they proved me wrong, every single song is not only good, but unique. They keep changing styles all the time, making it really diverse. Yeah, I hate listening to albums when all the songs sound the same. It’s even hard to compare songs like “Heavydirtysoul” and “The  Judge”, because they are so different from each other.

There is another beautiful thing in this album, all the lyrics follow the same “story”, about this guy, who we can assume is Blurryface, and his arc from the first song until the last one. That’s why I think it is important

I cannot say this album is perfect, because I’m more into groups like Gorillaz and Dye, but this is really freaking good. This album for sure deserves a Llama Award!

Album: BLURRYFACE
Artist: Twenty One Pilots
Year: 2015
Genre: Alternative/Indie
Songs: 14
Duration: 52:17
Top Song: “Stressed Out”
Honorable Mentions: “Ride”, “The Judge” and “Goner”
Rate: ★★★★☆

LLAMAAWARD

Safe and Sound

Howdy!

I’m finally home! After all the work, the set was looking good. Now I have three more to take care of until Favor March is over. I’m already talking with my Brazilian Llamarina on Skype and she looks gorgeous as usual. I love seeing her all natural.

I didn’t take a shower yet, because I’m way too tired to kept standing up while that nice warm water cleans me. So, I just cleaned my feet, because they were smelly. 😦

I’m not hungry right now, because I destroyed my body consuming a bunch of the unhealthy snacks that were available on set.

And, also I’m slowly realizing how much I don’t enjoy staying around this group of people. A fellow llama agreed with me. I feel that I’m one of the few llamas, that keeps working with the weird alpacas. Nothing against alpacas, but they are not llamas.

But, let’s be positive! I’m home, safe and sound! 😀

Now it’s time to talk to my beautiful Brazilian Llamarina, listen to some music or watch funny videos on YouTube.

Probably I’ll review an album, game or a film, so, this blog get a little bit more exciting.

I’ll see you soon muchachos! 😉

Sunday Morning

Howdy!

I’ve just woke up after some hours of sleep. I’ve been having some weird dreams recently, and it makes me wake up kinda stressed or a little bit exhausted.

But let’s cut to the chase: somebody shared on Facebook a clip of the “new” Digimon (not Digimon Tri), but one that has a guy called Taigiru (I’m bad with foreign names) and he needs to get something called “Brave Snatcher”. The clip was cool, showing that this Digimon kept the anime’s essence after all.

Oh, yeah, in 20 minutes I need to start walking to set (which is 15 minutes away from my home). I’m sending some texts right now seeing if somebody can pick me up, and I hope they answer.

Anyway, I have to get dressed, eat some breakfast, and get ready to roll.

And, I still have no concrete plans for what I’m going to do after set.

Ohhhhh, and last, but not least, thanks for the like I got yesterday on the blog! 😀

See you soon muchachos! 😉

Saturday Late Night/Sunday Early Morning

Howdy!

I should be sleeping, because tomorrow I need to be on set at 9 am (not a set I want to be part of, just returning a favor), and I’m here, setting up a blog, listening to Coldplay and Queen… Yep. My lovely mom, made a marvelous act of gifting me a week of HEALTHY groceries and I just ate a whole bag of Lay’s Limón. I need my girlfriend here to stop eating like shit. I usually don’t take care of myself when I’m alone, I don’t know, maybe is the lack of motivation of looking good for someone, like for my Brazilian Llamarina. When she’s around, I become someone I wish I was when I’m alone, healthy.

Probably after posting this I’ll grab a cup of water, throw this empty bat of fatness away, brush my teeth and sleep for some hours.

I’m seriously thinking on going to a random place to meet random people, since uberPOOL is free this weekend for people who use a certain credit card, which in my case, it’s good.

I wish I had funnier friends, of at least people that are not home-only or ultra vegan type of people. Like going out just to try random food or drinks.

Speaking about drinks, yeah, I would kill for a Sierra Nevada right now. Probably I should grab some tomorrow.

And last, but not least, I usually mention a lot of brands, and trust me, I’m not getting paid by any of them, because if I was, I wouldn’t be doing the boring stuff I’m going to do tomorrow morning.

So, good night and I’ll see you soon, muchachos! 😉
