What I’m Listening To This Week 6/23/19

I didn’t share a music post last week because we were moving, and still been super busy. Here’s what I’ve listened to the last two weeks.

1.) HYO – Sober English Version.

This song is so catchy. I find myself singing it all the time now.

2.) Troye Sivan – Fools

I first found this song via BTS’ Jung Kook’s cover but the original is good too. I think I actually prefer Jung Kook’s version more though.

The next 3 songs are by an artist named Amber. I really like her voice and the beat to all of these songs. read more

Canadian Bet Calculator Explained And Where To Use Them

Canadian Bet Calculator Explained and Where to Use Them   

 

It seems that there are new types of bets being introduced all the time. Despite the innovations, there are still several that seem to have been around forever and the Canadian bet is one of them.

 

The Canadian bet is a way of getting a large win if your luck is in. Rather than a straightforward win accumulator such as a double or treble, this bet doesn’t fall apart if one selection fails to be a winner.

 

You can get a return on your stake from this bet even if just two of your selections is a winner. Five selections are required for a Canadian (sometimes referred to a a Super Yankee) and there are 26 different bets being laid. read more

What I’m Listening To This Week – Kpop, English Covers, and Other Music

I thought it might be fun to share like a weekly top 10 of songs I’m listening to each week. It can be a new feature on my blog. The music won’t always be new songs, it will be very eclectic.  Here’s what I’m listening to this week. I have been listening to a lot of Kpop, including some awesome amazing English covers from talented amateur youtube performers. Check them out below!

1.) Goblin – OST – Beautiful (Crush)

Ok so Goblin is one of my favorite Kdrama, like in the top 3 for sure. This is the opening song, and there are dozens and dozens of English covers of this song. Someone should make like a US version of this drama, and use one of these covers for the opening song lol. But I know it’d never be as good as the Korean version, but then I could get more of my friends and family to watch this show because it’s so good. Le sigh – lol. I seriously kinda want this song to be like my first dance wedding song. It’s nice and slow, and most of the lyrics until the last verse are appropriate. Even then, the last verse, although it is sad, especially if you’ve ever watched Goblin, even still taking it away completely from the context of Goblin, you could analyze the lyrics to be like either, you need someone when you have a sorrowful day, their love gets you through those days, or well sadly, life is cruel and in the end, you will be parted from those you love, because one of you will pass away first, leaving the other person with only memories, and since it’s the last verse, it could be after a long life together. Thus even though it’s sad, still symbolizes a life full of love and memories together. And the first few verses – depending on whose cover you’re listening to, have lines like “It’s a beautiful life. I’ll be the one to cherish you. Now and forever girl I’ll stand by you.” which definitely could apply to a wedding. And it’s just so beautiful – I tear up every time I hear this song. read more
