(Note: I managed to make a cringe worthy memory by pronouncing Brooklyn 99 as Brooklyn ninety nine over a conversation with my sister and then defending the error.)

2016 seems to follow a very vibrant colour pattern spilled over from 2015. Coldplay’s new song ‘Hymn for the weekend’, the Suicide Squad trailer and posters, Superbowl half time show, Black versus Blue (BvS), Red vs Blue (Civil War), Red vs Black (Daredevil vs the Punisher) and then there’s just the forever alone red (deadpool). X men Apocalypse if you count Psylocke and Jubilee putting up a light show. Really hope that the movie doesn’t disappoint. What made Colossus stand out in Deadpool more than any other X men film he’s appeared in is that he was given lines and much more purpose than just serving as the bruiser on the team, something that the X men films seem to be missing other than ‘First Class’. I was so excited to see ‘Blink’ in Days of Future past only to be disappointed with her absence. I can’t leave out Jessica Jones’s purple, that colour appeals to one too many people I know. This post, unlike the 6 seasons of ‘Lost’ has a point somewhere. *I kid*
Well, I’m still looping ‘Hymn for the weekend’ on YouTube. It’s visually appealing, as for the lyrics, it reflects on how Coldplay has changed with each album, and like most music artists, they’ve dabbled with pop. It’s definitely somewhat of a big change to come to terms with, especially for the fans that supported their initial music, but I think it’s a token to the band to show their range in genres. One of my roomies disagrees saying that they have a lot of humdrum tracks.
I think it’s an added bonus to rely on one band when you’re looking for a groovy tune to move along to or just a silent one for a calm starry night. I can get vary of some artists since almost every album is monotonous. Another added bonus is that you can distinguish between albums, a harp string for Florence + the machine signals ‘Lungs’ whilst the chorus and orchestra signals ‘Ceremonials’ and her latest *outstanding* album ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’ brings in trumpets and some rocking beats. In short, to everyone who loves music *duh, everyone* it brings a little comfort to know and distinguish your songs and artists, and even better to single out the album and extra credit to knowing the influence and backstory and the list goes on, sort of like a tasting session in the food and beverage world. Some just like to eat and drink *aka zomato/tripadvisor/instagram “foodies”* and some like to savour a meal and dig deeper, distinguish the flavours and pairings on a menu *cough “snob” cough*. Honestly, I’m in a mood to troll everyone, just got both of my roomies to argue over someone else’s issues.
Think that the thought I wrote about above is just one binge away from describing a typical fangirl. Hymn for the weekend received a lot of backlash from the Indian community, well a small irritable few who took issue with the portrayal of Mumbai. Don’t get that at all, as the video stands true to things you’d be interested in whilst in Mumbai. I don’t get one’s need to visit a mall or eat at KFC when in a new country. Sure Mumbai has a lot to offer, but most of it seems a bit too western which wouldn’t make for a good music video.
P.S. – The restaurant’s been hella busy and I’m exhausted. Dozing off now.
