With the poor showing and popularity of my blog which I tweet every time I post a writing, I have admitted a long time ago that my blog has been a part of surplus of internet space. My tweets in particular are a waste of Tweeter space. It deserves a room inside a black hole at the edge of the universe.
But of all Tweets! From the mass and heaps of tweets about John Splithoff and his bouncy song Show Me, one of the tweets he happen to have liked was MINE!
the precious tweet. hahaha!
And as soon as I was notified about Splithoff’s liking my tweet, I cartwheeled, I somersaulted and I raised my fist out into the air and shouted OMG! John Splithoff doesn’t know how elated I am when I saw the red-colored heart on my boring, flat and uninteresting Tweeter account.
can’t believe this! pinusuan!

Thanks John! I promise that my Spotify account will be on a repeat-single-song mode (if it has that) so as to listen to Show Me for the whole 30-minute duration of my treadmill walk at my gym tonight.
The expensive Coldplay concert was recently concluded in Manila. It was not surprising that it was jam packed and very successful. It was Coldplay! But I did not watch. The reason is because I would rather see and listen to Elbow than Coldplay. And like Coldplay, Elbow is a British band.
elbow (filipino translation: siko)
Elbow is one of the most underrated bands on the planet. The difference between Coldplay songs and Elbow songs is that in the former, the songs would have to grow in you before you start liking it. But for the latter, while listening to their songs, you would instantly fall in love and instantaneously adore their music.
Elbow is the kind of band that sings lyrics and utter phrases that I thought would never be though abd uttered. The notions of their songs are the type of thoughts that I would like to express that I can’t seem to construct inside my crazy and inadequate brain. And because Elbow seem to possess such an amazing talent, I therefore like them.
Here’s a couple of songs of Elbow which for sure you would instantly fall in love with…
And while in the middle of the “famousity” of cloudfront.net in Facebook (which everyone seem to have downloaded so as to check who’s their celebrity look-a-like), here’s a hypnotic music video for the song Gentle Storm. I was entranced watching the video, I thought I saw my face in it! Hahaha! And by the way, I so loved the lyrics especially the line,
And fall in love with me.
Fall in love with me,
The song is so me!
I hope one day Elbow would be as successful as Coldplay because they indeed deserve it. And I hope and pray that one day they would perform in Manila. That would be one show that I would definitely gonna pay for.
Wrabel has yet to reach superstar status in the Philippines. Only few people I suppose knows about him here at the other part of the planet. I guess I’m one of the few lucky Pinoy souls who were fortunate to have discovered the poignancy of his songs.
I’m a fan and this dude deserves more. Here’s his latest…
