I've listened to Sondre Lerche's songs since I was in high school, but I've started to follow his musics for 4 years ago. It was Java Jazz Festival 2011 where I finally watched his live performance, awesome memories! I also met some new friends who also enjoy listening Sondre Lerche, and we always keep updated each others.
Some people might don't know very well about him. His phenomenon songs are "Two Way Monologue" and "Heartbeat Radio". But, speaking of him, I got big news to share! He'll come to Jakarta, and I've already purchased the tickets! YEAY!
Also, several months ago, he has released his new album, Please, and it's great album. I really miss to hear his new songs so badly! So, right after I got the album, I listened to the whole of it, and I favorited one song. Guess what, I really like Lucky Guy. I don't know exactly why I like very much this song. But, one thing I could describe is it is a VERY Sondre's song!
Sorry, I couldn't find it at Soundcloud, but you could hear it from this site:

Walk Off the Earth is a band of five beautiful and awesome humans: Sarah, Gianni, Joel, Taylor, and Marshall.
I've heard their musics since they covered Gotye's phenomenon song "Somebody I Used to Know" and made a superb creative video with ideas of five people playing together in one guitar. Sounds awesome, right? Here's the prove of it:
Featuring Terry "KRNFX", they also played covers of "I knew you were trouble", "Am I wrong?", "Natalie", etc.
But, my favorites from them are:
OMG! Have you seen their videos? How is it possible, five creative and multi-talented musicians in one incredible band? the answer is Walk Off the Earth.
ps. They're making video right now. If you also like them, please support them on their website Patreon (and become Patron Family!!!!)
pss. I hope WOTE could come and play to Indonesia, so I can see their performance LIVE!
Last weekend I watched The Deep Blue Sea, a movie by Terence Davies, starred Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston. It's a 1950-set movie, bags of emotions, erotic-romance.. such a beautiful movie! To my knowledge, Tom has played two times as an attractive young man in old-set movies, such as The Deep Blue Sea and Midnight in Paris. At first I downloaded the movie, I was giving note to my self, a note to keep calm whatever happen in it. So, yeah. I can't. That bed-scence. I mean, Tom's porcelaine skin, so white, clean, and bright (ups.. sorry, too vulgar :P -I can't handle my self when describing Tom). But in this post, I'm going to share you guys one beautiful thing (besides Tom) from the movie. It's a song sung by Jo Stafford, called "you belong to me". OMG. It's extremely pretty melody, I can dance myself when I heard it. You could also hear it below: (Hope you enjoy!) Angger x
If you are a fangirling, you must know those famous line "Brother mine". It was Mycroft Holmes who always called Sherlock as his brother dear. Even though I fight hard with my sibling, I always like the idea of sibling-in-crime in the movies, series, or books. Sounds bad-ass, right? But, in today's post, I don't talk about Holmes' brothers, but I'm going to talk about Mythology's God brothers: Thor and Loki. Since I watched the first Thor's movie, I'm in love with Loki (and the person who plays Loki :D ). Ordinary people see Loki as a villain, well actually not once, but three times, in Thor, The Avengers, and Thor: The Dark World. But at my knowledge, he doesn't count as a villain in Thor: The Dark World though.
There was one interview's session where the host asked Tom Hiddleston about making a movie about Loki. It's strongly brilliant idea! Sadly, we never know, when it will be happen. But, luckily us, some creative fans made a Loki movie! It's incredibly awesome! They compile all of Loki's scences on Thor, The Avengers, and Thor: The Dark World, even they added some scences from bonus track. This movie is probably a museum of emotions and feelings..
The King Speech's actor, Colin Firth, got some words about Benedict Cumberbatch in regards to his (Benedict) nomination in TIME Magazine's The 100 Most Influence People. "He must be stopped!" said Colin. Benedict became one of the most famous people because of his important role as Sherlock in Sherlock Holmes BBC, Khan in Star Trek : Into the Darkness, and Smaug in The Hobbit : Desolation of Smaug. Recently he has good times and seems enjoy them.
Benedict is one of my favorite British guys, along to Tom Hiddleston. Both of them has different characteristic but they surely have pure soul and charismatic gentlemen. They are very good in acting, and they have beautiful voice. I always listening to their narrating stories of various audiobooks and sit-com radio stories in BBC Radio. They have once played together in a Steven Spielberg's movie, War Horse. They look dashing together, a perfect OTP.
Today I receive the final report of my english couse I have taken in LBI UI for about 6 months ago. It was, quite frankly, decreased from my previously scores. I've taken 6 TOEFL Preparation test, and the scores seemed very fluctuate. The very first test, I got 483, the second is the same, then my score increased to 523 at the third. They were my scores from the first level, pretty good as a new beginner I thought. During my fisrt level class, it's quite fun and seemed not quite difficult for me. Because I had english course when I am in 8th grade, but it lasted for only one and a half years. So it's kind a refreshment for me joining english course again. But mostly I learned something different here, and because I took TOEFL Preparation class I learned many tips to get good score in TOEFL test, about how to answer as quick as possible with reducing any possibilities of mistaken, refreshment structure and vocabulary skills, and importantly how to train our ears to listen conversation in listening section. And also, surely I met classmates from various background and different ages, insurance agent, college students, reporter, lecturer assistant, etc. Then I continued to the second level in which I met more difficulties. This is gonna be hard, I thought. But, I felt so enjoyed learning english in my second level class. My teacher, she is very best teacher I've ever met. She taught us about structure and we, my friends and I, had so much fun learning vocabulary and stuff. She made games and other interactive teaching. My friends in my second class are more attractive, funnier, awesome, talkative, and friendly. We shared good times to mingle and surely, times for good laugh. So it's madly sad knowing our class is over.
Then, here comes the day that I have been waiting for more than 2 weeks, my final report! My final report includes first score I've taken from the very beginning of class, called entry test, and final score from our final test. My boyfriend took my report for me, because I'm in the office right now. He informed me I got pretty bad score. At first I thought he's just fibbing. But he sent me picture of my report, and I can't believe it. It's true fact that my score decreased, and I don't know why. Overall, I got 510 for my entry test, 530 for mid-test, and 503 for final test. Yeah, how can I possibly relieve? gosh, I felt sorry and ashamed to my self. But this might be good feedback for me. My boyfriend told me maybe this is because I don't have enough time to study, even after work-hour. I always bring my book to the office, but still I can't get enough time and place to focus on my study. But hey, the world isn't over (yet), I already registered my self to another class, academic writing. So, I should study harder, more focus, and hopefully, I can get enough time to join the scholarship applications. Aamiin! Ganbatte!
