I have always been a fan of OK Go. I blogged about them and their videos here, here, here and here. Although I may be more of a fan of their videos than their songs. Teehee! Their videos are always highly conceptualized, with amazing attention to details. Their new video for the song Needing/Getting is just as awesome. Plus, if you enjoy cars, you'll like this even more. The video is bankrolled by Chevrolet, and was first shown during one of the Super Bowl's commercial break.

The concept of the video moves around a car, in this case a Chevy Sonic and an obstacle course. The obstacle course btw is tons of pianos, guitars, amplifiers, tubas and everything else in between. Roughly around 1000 in total.

I never knew, jumpsuits can make you look cool!

And just like their previous videos, there are behind-the-scenes videos which explains and shows how everything, well most things are done.

See the USA, in your Chevrolet! (whoops! wrong song)

The song is actually quite good, it has been in my playlist for sometime and is my go to song when I want to shut down the rest of the world. Or in most cases, my seatmates in public transport here in SG. 

And here is the video. The video has around 16 M views in time of posting!


One word: Awesome!

You can actually download the studio version of the song for free through this link. And for the behind the scenes, head on to OK Go's Youtube Channel.

See yah later!

Sunday are for Friends, too

Yay for another post! A little more personal this time. Just realized I haven't posted anything personal for about a year now, so here it goes.

There are a lot of Filipinos working here in Singapore, some of them are my friends even. I had a classmate in college who started working here last November yet we haven't seen each other. I know that SG is just a small country but still, our schedules seem to not match all the time.

Thank God, after about four months, I finally got to meet her. And she brought her friend, too.

We went to this a nature park called Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve just today and I want to share some pictures.

Beautiful Mangrove roots take center stage as water recedes due to the low tide.

Girl/Boy Band?!?

Smile! Thank God for tripod and camera's with timers.

Lookie! It's a crab with only one huge pincer and what seems to be only one eye!

I love this little structures along the Mangrove Arboretum.

The Aerie.

Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve is a nature park where mangroves and wetland wildlife thrive. It is home to mangroves and associated wildlife as well as to resident birds such as herons, kingfishers and sunbirds. For more information, please visit their website.

Adele's Big Win

I haven't been blogging in a while, fine, in a loooong time. I don't wanna bore you with another Glee post. So what better way to celebrate 2012 (I told you I'm late) than with Adele.

Yup, that's her. Adele Laurie Blue AdkinsNot only did she has the most wonderful voice, she also gets credit for it. She had just won 6 Grammy's last weekend (Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the Year, etc.). I mean, she's won all categories where she is nominated!

As most would say, this is definitely her comeback. After some months of silence, literally, she's so back! She had a throat surgery which stopped her for a while. Her tour got cancelled, and she literally wasn't able to speak for some time. Also, she got called "a little too fat" by one Karl Lagerfeld. Yikes!

All that has past though. She's back and on the cover of Vogue's March 2012 issue.

Girl is definitely a looker! Though she was on the cover of other magazine, not one of them has shown this much of her. I mean, hello cleavage!

Here are some outakes from the magazine. Article can be found also here
