‘ello Jello

This is a little piece I wrote for the magazine I had to produce at university. It was written a while back, before Christmas, so it is a bit out-dated!  I will be posting a more recent article about Far East Movement soon! Enjoy =]


The entertaining, down-town LA boys of Far*East Movement have come back with another club-hitting song. Like a G6 was a massive hit in the clubs last winter and luckily, the boys are back with another song which will definitely be a club anthem this winter! Jello hit the iTunes hot 100 chart at number Seven in its first week.

 The Far*East Movement lads have definitely given thought into when to release a new track since their fans must be dying for some new material after their first mainstream album Free Wired. It’s a great idea to keep fans keen for more by release a track of their next album which hasn’t even been given a release date yet.

But are we just waiting for another album with the same sounds of Free Wired? Far*East Movement have definitely got a fresh sound that stands out from other hip-hop based groups.  Far*East Movement are signed to the Alternative-Pop record label Cherry Tree London, which other artists such as LMFAO & FrankMusik are signed to. Kev-Nish and the rest of the group have pressure to sound new and different. But it seems that the Los Angeles based group have nothing to worry about because it looks as though they are making music effortlessly.

Kev-Nish speaks about how the album will have,

‘a few songs that show the hip-hop roots and the ‘Rocketeer’ style, and heavy synth dance tracks as well, but the majority of the album is going to be the L.A. dirty bass sound’.

Sound a bit like the first album? Regardless, it won’t be a disappointment if the second album (rumoured to be called Dirty Bass) sounds like their previous album Free Wired. Kev also comments on how him & the boys are trying to take the album to a different level;

‘To accentuate the bass, we bought an old school refurbished 1989 Cadillac limo. I used to install car stereos, so I’m going to hook up the system myself and we’re going to take all of our songs in this car and drive around in L.A. and vibe out’.

With the success of their first album, I’m sure Far*East Movement won’t find it hard to get the right sound for their album to succeed. They just have to stay true to themselves & the next album will be a masterpiece.

How to know if he likes you

This is one of the most searched questions on Google.

Us girls wonder too much and stress over, if a guy that we like feels the same way.

There are countless blogs and websites that give tips like, ‘If he makes eye contact for more than 3 seconds it means he wants to marry you’. They all annoy me. And I am guilty. I have looked at these blogs and websites and even thought to myself ‘OMG! He actually likes me!’.

These blogs and websites are miss-leading and are just a stupid assumption made by people. It is actually quiet offensive to men, as it shows them as a gender who all act the same and do the same actions. Men act in different ways and show different signs. It is like going to a website which generalises women, we would all get offended by it!

So I am going to tell you THE ONLY WAY to know if a guy likes you.

Speak to him.

I don’t mean speak to him and see how he acts around you. I mean speaking to him, become an acquittance and after a while, let him know you like him. If he likes you back he will make a move. If he doesn’t he will tell you he doesn’t feel the same. If he isn’t sure he will tell you.

Also, if a guy likes you, he might have a girlfriend and is just making eye-contact with you because he thinks you are cute but has no intentions of taking it further. You would not know this if you don’t speak to him.

You could also get a friend to ask for you but that is slightly childish.

Good Luck with your crush! =]

Eeeek pt. 2

I mentioned in Eeeek that I was going to do a blog entry about my country. I have decided not to do the post because I can’t help but be bias. Countries and wars are very sensitive subjects and I don’t want to upset of offend anyone with my views as they are very strong.

Instead I will do a post about the history of my country =]

That will be coming soon.

And I want to apologise about my absence. I will be back to hopefully daily blog posts. =]

=[ (=D pt. 3).

If you haven’t already, read my posts =D  & =D pt. 2 before reading this.

So, I purchased two tickets to see Jeremy Passion in London on the 31st of March. Since none of my friends listen to Passion, I didn’t want to go by myself so I thought, I’ll purchase two tickets and then figure out who to go with. That’s when I realised that I could ask the guy that I like!

I had it all planned out! I would ask him on Friday (yesterday).

So I went into uni, and the weather was amazing! Everyone was out on the grass on campus and having some cool drinks. Then, I saw him! He looked so hot! Then he disappeared and showed up with a girl. The girl I always used to see him with. They were holding hands, hugging, kissing and it was so heart breaking. =[

I also found out that someone I know has known him since college. I asked her a few questions about him (I know it sounds stalker-ish!). She mentioned a long term relationship. But like I said in my previous posts, he said that he was single. Now he is back with her.

I don’t know if I am happy that I didn’t ask him out or ‘make a move’, or if I regret not doing anything.

The first thing I thought was, I should have said something. But then I thought about what would have happened if I did say something. I would have still got hurt. If it went well, we would have went out on a date, got to know each other more, I would fall for him even more and then he would have gotten back together with his ex.

But now I am thinking, what did I have to lose? It could have went the other way and I might have been with him now.

Now, I am kicking myself because this isn’t the first time this has happened to me with a guy. I am too shy. And even with all my friends telling me to go and talk to him I didn’t have the guts to. And I really need to grow some balls.

It’s very rare for me to like someone so much. Every time I do like someone that much, I don’t get anything out of it.

I know it’s rich coming from me, since I have no balls but, girls, please, if you like someone, do something about it because if you don’t another girl who is more confident will get him. I wish I had seen that sooner. And the worst thing that could happen is that you will know that he doesn’t feel the same. That is actually a good thing because you know where you stand and you have closure.
