SAKURA

Spring's here already, I couldn't really tell though. The weather is relatively the same all the time here in Florida, which is nice, I mean I love Miami, but it's just confusing when it comes to the seasons. The "seasons."

I wish I could visit Japan right now, 'cause one of my friends, who lives near Tokyo, sent me a video of the cherry blossom trees in full bloom from her neighborhood a few days ago, and they looked so pretty! Aaw, I wish I could get to see the cherry blossoms in person one day too. I know Washington D.C. has some, so maybe I can just go there? That’s a possibility for the future I hope, maybe next year who knows.


Anyway, I’ve been very happy to know that some people have already gotten their first dose of the vaccine, some have even gotten both doses already, and if so then - congratulations! 🎉

I don't know if it's just me, or if it's a thing, but I've notice that people who have gotten the vaccine recently are constantly talking about the "side effects" that they're experiencing days and days after they've gotten the shot. I kept hearing things like - "I do feel a little warm lately, and my head has gotten bigger" or "I feel maybe my arm is sore...no my other arm, no just all of my limbs actually" or "yes, my hair is tingling a bit now that you mention it." It's so annoying, 'cause I know for sure that they're just being crazy lying to themselves, and everyone that they're calling on the phone. I just feel like saying - "dude, quit your bullshit, nothing is wrong with you. Just quit playing"


Actually I-I have said that... I feel bad about it a little. I can't help the things that come out of my mouth though


Unfortunately I haven’t been able to make an appointment for the covid vaccine for myself yet, but I did get on a waiting list. Actually, I think I might be on two waiting lists right now. Definitely at least one, and hopefully one of them comes through soon ‘cause I’ve been answering literally every single call I’ve been getting on my phone, but unfortunately most of them have just been from scammers… or relatives, i.e. – scammers


just kidding about that last part though


Well I can't wait to finally be able to get my vaccine just so I can go on lying to everyone about my mysterious and imaginary side effects. Here we go, here we go!



If I'm able to get a vaccine by the summer, maybe I can even plan to go to a concert somewhere later this year, maybe... I said maybe. 'Cause I've seen online that some bands are planning to perform in July, but that's not set in stone, just in ticket sales I guess. Actually one of my all-time favorite metal bands, Gojira, is releasing a new album titled Fortitude, on April 30th. I don't think they're planning a tour, but needless to say, I’m of course very excited. Back in February the band posted a music video for the song Born for One Thing, as the teaser for their new album. And although the song could have been heavier, in my opinion, it was still really good. My hopes are riding on this new album, so hopefully it’s amazing, but I’ll just have to wait and see until it's released in a few weeks (A million years from now!). Ah, why does waiting suck?!




Saint Jhn, on the other hand, released his newest album late last year, While the World was Burning, and of course it’s incredible. There are several songs in the album that are just remixes of his earlier works though, but I just kinda skip those tracks. By far my favorite song has to be Sucks to be You, it’s really catchy and I really just love Saint Jhn’s voice, I think it’s really unique. Also, he’s shirtless a lot in his music videos, which is a plus, and he’s cute, also a plus… Oh and he dances good too… almost forgot to mention that. His music is really heavy on Trap, and I really don't like Trap, but I love him, so maybe I like Trap??? I don't even think about it, he's great though.




London based hip-hop and R&B artist, Shakka, also released a new song recently. I saw his music video for When You Pull Up, on YouTube… and ooh it’s sexy and I loved it! I do like some of Shakka’s other songs that are R&B and hip-hop, but then he has these weird, sort of ‘folk’ type of songs that I can’t really get into. Anyway, important things to know about Shakka – he’s cute and he sings good and… When you pull up oh na na na, na na na, na na naaaa…




I could go on and on all day about music, but I’m gonna leave it with Guru Randhawa, a Bollywood pop singer from India. Of course, I love all of Guru’s songs, so when I heard he had recently released his new music video, Mehendi Wale Haath, I rushed over to YouTube and immediately gave the song a thumbs up. Thumbs up Guru, thumbs up! This particular song is a ballad, a refreshing change from Guru’s signature pop songs... which are all amazing!



I know I kinda threw all of these genres out at random, but I think it's good to have a little bit of variety when it comes to music, so there you go.
