Music Monday: “Horoscopes” by As It Is

“Horoscopes” by As It Is 

There’s no god if this is all there is for me, viagra
A temper and conceptions that I’m lonely.

When death comes, I’ll be ready,
But I’ll waste my life preparing.
There’s so much more to life than breathing.

I see life through a dog’s eyes,
A world in black and white,
A world that would so happily forget me,

I’m faithless I’m shameless

I just wanna believe in something,
But I think that horoscopes are bullshit,
I just wanna believe in something,
Anything at all, yeah,

I’m faithless I’m shameless

I make terrible decisions,
and I pay for them in the fear that keeps my eyes glued to the ceiling.

If I drown, will you drown with me?
‘Cause I’d hate to leave you lonely
In a world that would so happily forget me

I’m faithless I’m shameless

I just wanna believe in something,
But I think that horoscopes are bullshit,
I just wanna believe in something,
Anything at all, yeah,

All great men die young,
Just bodies in boxes or dust in porcelain and,
Once my friends are gone,
I’ll remember when we held the world with our fingers.

All great men die young,
Just bodies in boxes or dust in porcelain.
All great men die young,
And I’m so fucking scared to outlive all I’ve ever known.

I just wanna believe in something…

Music Monday: “Hurricane” by Something Corporate

“Hurricane” by Something Corporate

Shake down you make me break
For goodness sake
I think I’m on the edge
Of something new with you
Shout out don’t drown the sound
I’ll drown you out
You’ll never scream so loud
As I want to scream with you

Standing there with your smile blinding
Your eyes from seeing
My face as I’m dying

To figure out a girl

But she drifts so far away
I’m on her coast
So maybe I should stay
And map around your world

So don’t say
“These currents are still killing me”
And you can’t explain
But the wind went and pulled me into your hurricane
Into your hurricane

Stand up don’t make a sound
Your ears might bleed
There are sweet fluorescent enemies
That live inside of me
The world moves faster than I knew
Not fast enough to not creep up on you
And the space we put between
So pull me under your weather patterns
Your cold fronts and the rain don’t matter
Because the sun burns what I needed

[Chorus]
So don’t say
“These currents are still killing me”
And you can’t explain
But the wind went and pulled you into the hurricane
Into the hurricane

You don’t do it on purpose
But you make me shake
Now I count the hours ’til you wake
With your babies breath
Breathe symphonies
Come on sweet catastrophe

Well, more about maybe this time I can follow through
I can feel complete
Stop paying dues
Stop the rain from falling
Keep my ocean calm
This time I know nothing’s wrong

[Chorus]
So don’t say
“These currents are still killing me”
And you can’t explain
But the wind went and pulled me in and no,
You don’t say
“These currents are still killing me”
And you can’t explain
But the wind went and pulled me into your hurricane
Into your hurricane
Into your hurricane

Music Monday: “Our Last Day” by Green Light Theory

I am so excited to bring you today’s Music Monday. These guys are friends of mine and they are just straight up awesome. I met them super randomly nearly a year ago, buy outside a venue where I was seeing one of my favorite bands, Set It Off. They were playing acoustic, and just trying to get people to notice them. Awesome idea, and it totally worked for me. I’m HOOKED.

Well I decided to share them today because their album is completely FREE right now, for the next couple days, on their bandcamp and I URGE you to take advantage of this super cool deal. They’ll be playing a show at The Mint in LA this coming Sunday, the 15th, and they’ll be OPENING for Hawthorne Heights (!!!) in March in New York! SO stoked.

So make sure to click the links below, check them, and download their album for free here. And now enjoy their newest single and video :)

Music Monday: “Sad Ghost” by Issues

“Sad Ghost” by Issues

Standing in front of this bed with some matches watch it burn
I pray my body burns too

Why do I do the things that I do
And they blind you
Yet you are the only one who can see what I’ve done

Laying here doesn’t feel the same
I need to get up and make a change
Get up and get over this
My voice it echoes my thoughts collide
You said I’m dead to you I bled for you
Now your dreams can come true
There’s a place in my bed where you rested your head
Now I’m resting alone in this bed and it’s cold
I feel like a ghost, viagra 60mg these memories go up in smoke
You didn’t want serious and It made me delirious
2:40 AM all I wrote was

Why do I do the things that I do
And they blind you
Yet you are the only one who can see what I’ve done

Guess I’ll never know what I meant to you
This year’s been lonely but at least it’s through
I’ll write a letter to my former self
Dear sad ghost, medications why’d you put your heart on the shelf

You took the fun out of living
When you took the life out of me

Take a look into the mirror
But you don’t see yourself inside
Watch it crack
You’re bad luck started with me
And my good luck ended with you

I know you’re drunk again, order and not thinking clear
But when you write this down, at least try and sound
A bit more sincere

Guess I’ll never know what I meant to you
This year’s been lonely but at least its through
I’ll write a letter to my former self
Dear sad ghost, why’d you put your heart on the shelf

Music Monday: “Vegas Skies” by The Cab

“Vegas Skies” by The Cab 

Its twelve o clock and I need your attention
Its like the alcohol making my head spin
Send me the one the room is a bottle
Keeping me hopeless til I wake tomorrow

And if tonight ever makes a difference
The way that I feel the way that Ill remember it
Ill take this down until the glass remains
Swallow the words that I was meant to say

Its a long drive back to Vegas skies
So I dont, viagra 100mg I make one more wrong turn tonight so

Say goodnight our first goodbye
Ive only got forever and forever is fine
Just take your time
Well stop the clock together
And know that the timing was right

All of these guards they stand tall and defensive
Putting up walls around what was once innocent
It wont let me in but Im stronger than that
Cuz you stole my eyes and Ill never look back

Girl last night I forgot to mention
The way that I feel the way that Ill remember this
When were this young we have nothing to lose
We just the clock to beat and a hand to choose

Its a long drive back to Vegas skies
So I dont, medical I make one more wrong turn tonight so

Say goodnight our first goodbye
Ive only got forever and forever is fine
Just take your time
Well stop the clock together
And know that the timing was right

Its a long way down
Just fall into place and youll fall into me
Well make it out youll see

So say goodnight our first goodbye
Ive only got forever and forever is fine
Just take your time
Well stop the clock together

And say goodnight our first goodbye
Ive only got forever and forever is fine
Just take your time
Well stop the clock together
And know that the timing was right

Jamie Campbell Bower-Live Acoustic Set at Venice Boardwalk-Recap and Vlog!

Jamie Campbell Bower. My Jace Wayland. Actor. Model. Musician. Has been in movies such as The Twilight Saga as Caius, nurse Harry Potter as Gellert Grindwald, The Mortal Instruments as Jace Wayland and more. Modeled for several different brands, most recently, Burberry. Part of the awesome band, The Darling Buds.

Just recently, Jamie did a random live acoustic set in the UK for anyone and everyone who wanted to show up and I must admit, I was a bit jealous. Yay for UK fans ;)

Just this week, however, Jamie announced on his twitter that he would be repeating this trend, in NYC on Saturday May 3rd and in Los Angeles on Tuesday May 6th.

Screen Shot 2014-05-07 at 2.21.10 AM

And I DIED. I’m ALWAYS off on Tuesdays from work AND Los Angeles is my home. Jamie was going to be playing beautiful, beautiful music in my own backyard. AGH!

Once Jamie had given us a location and time (Venice Boardwalk, 7 pm), my friends and I decided to make a day of it. I hung out with my friends Sylvia, Alex, Ally, Cassie, Stephanie, Jade and Mina and had a blast. I bought the new Morgan Matson book and Kiera Cass’ new book, and spent some always wonderful time in Barnes and Noble. We ate lunch on the Santa Monica Pier at good ‘ol Bubba Gump’s, and then made our way down to Venice Beach to the boardwalk to wait for Jamie.

2014-05-07 01.58.27

AND IT WAS TOTALLY AWESOME.

Jamie pulled up, SO super cool, and pulled out his acoustic guitar, and proceeded to play some songs for us, which was amazing! He is so incredibly talented and even though I’ve met him three times already, I still found myself swooning like crazy!

But don’t just take my word for it! I managed to grab some video while I was there. I took a TON of pictures, and then Facetimed with my dear friend Carmen from Oh the Book Feels, so I only got a little bit of video: small samplings of two songs BUT I did record a full song: Get Your Guns, so watch them here, and see if you don’t swoon a bit!

SIGH!

If you’d like to see the rest of the pictures (there are a lot), check out the full album here, on the What A Nerd Girl Says Facebook page!

The best part? After Jamie was done with his amazing set, my friends and I jet across town to the Americana to meet two wonderful authors, Tammara Webber and Abbi Glines! But more on that later!

WonderCon 2014 Vlog Recap!

So if you don’t follow me on Twitter, information pills Facebook or Instagram, cure you may not have seen all of the awesome pictures that I posted over this past weekend, cure because I was attending WonderCon 2014 in Anaheim, CA!

For those who don’t know, WonderCon is basically a small version of the very well known San Diego Comic Con! WonderCon is actually put together by the same organization that puts Comic Con together. I LOVE WonderCon because its smaller, and Anaheim is SO close to me, and I always have an absolute blast.

This year was NO different :)

I went and picked up my badge early on Thursday in order to enjoy the awesomeness all weekend without having to wait in line to get my badge. I met amazing people like Melissa de la Cruz and Margaret Stohl and James Dashner, the cast of the CW show, The 100, and SO much more.

But I’ll stop writing now so that you can enjoy my vlog post all about it! I managed to squeeze all 3 days of the convention into ONE 15 minutes vlog! That’s not bad for me HAHA!

Don’t forget you can also check out all the pictures from the weekend on Facebook here.

ALSO! I got my hands on lots of swag, which will be part of my blog birthday giveaway next month in May so watch out for that!

Until then, enjoy!

Can’t wait until next year!
