Christmas Wishlist

Since it's only a month until Christmas, in lieu of the Saturday Inspiration post, I thought I'd make a wishlist - unless my family wins the lottery, I won't buy more than a few things from this list. I'll note which ones are the must haves, and which are only wishful thinking as of now.

The Ultimate Favourites

This is my 100th post here! To commemorate, here is a playlist with one favourite song by each of my favourite 20 musicians/bands, in descending order. Behind the cut there is a little gushing about each of them, or an explanation as to why I like that particular artist so much. I listed five songs from each artist, which are a great start to listen to if you don't know the bands - though probably from my own subjective angle.

Saturday Inspiration #2

I'm starting to feel the end-of-the-semester pressure... but still, yesterday we met up with a few BSM students, and I really had fun, and today I still want to watch new episodes of my favourite shows... I might do that while drawing. Multitasking ftw.

Skirts x3

Undoubtedly, my favourite piece of clothing is skirts. One day, I'm going to do a post of my collection of skirts - I have more than 20, and I plan to expand it. Until then, I'm going to keep doing wishlists - right now, I have three types I really want: a printed skirt, a silver or holographic skirt, and I always want more black skirts, so that's no wonder. I already bought one which is shipped to my friend in America, and he's going to bring it back when he comes home for Christmas, but still...

Same Song Titles Face-Off 1/6

I noticed ages ago that I have lots of songs which have the same or same-ish titles, although I didn't realize I have quite as much - I gathered more than 120, even though I left out a significant amount of Japanese songs. So I decided I'd make a series of posts of it - it's kinda fun comparing songs, often from completely different genres. As it's probably evident from the title, I'll post this in 6 pieces, so each will contain 20 songs - 10 face-offs, except for this first one, since this has a three-way face-off too. Minor details like plural forms or verb/noun differences were ignored.

Saturday Inspiration #1

I have thousands of pictures and photos on my laptop - fashion, artworks, architecture, my own photos, etc. I've decided to start a new post series titled "Saturday Inspiration", and I'll try to post it every Saturday, but at least every second or so. This type is easy to pre-write, so... Each post will be 9 pictures + one song, but I reserve the right for the song to be an entire album if the times so dictate (2014 is just full of great new albums.) The posts will always be tagged as "saturday inspiration" and nothing else.
Anyway, here is the first batch.

MAC Cyber

I finally got one of my dream lipsticks, so here is a little review with swatches.
Also, from here on out, I'll probably write a few entries in Hungarian as well - the ones pertaining to general fashion (not haute couture) and makeup. Everything else will continue to be written solely in English.
Excuse the cheesy graphic, it's a metaphor

Nowhere Boys

There are many great shows on TV and on the Internet nowadays. Serious, compelling, boundary-pushing shows. Yet here I am, and I’m going to write about a show which is essentially a teen boys' show, although an excellent one at that.

Nowhere Boys is an Australian sort-of supernatural teen drama. The premise itself has all the qualities of an engaging fantasy setting, and the execution is superb, especially in its relative simplicity. To sum it up: four very different boys, unlikely to even get along, somehow end up in a world (maybe their own, maybe not), where no one knows them.  All sorts of magic and supernatural events follow suit, there are mysteries to uncover, the boys inevitably bond etc. They of course must come to terms with the fact that they are not in their own world, and figure out a way back.
What makes this show really interesting though are the characters and their relationships with their families, friends, and most importantly, each other. There’s quite a lot going on plot-wise for such an easy show, but that alone wouldn't do anything. The show has some great comedic moments – each main character has a different sense of humour, and the boys’ overall positive approach makes it a light story despite the setting.
I'd really recommend it for everyone, especially that now it’s getting a second season, so if someone gets slightly addicted to it (like me), they can take comfort in the knowledge that reinforcements are coming.

[From here on, there will be spoilers. It is going to be a "short" character study for each of the four leads, from my least favourite to my favourite, although I do love them all tremendously.]
