Pick Me Up Songs

I'm hurting. No details needed cuz it's not that kind of blog :). But going through this hurt for the last month or so, I find myself listening to A LOT more music than I used to (which was already a lot). It's the one thing that's constant and is able to keep me from going over the edge. So for those that know me emm my library is full of what some people call "depressing" songs, so I find myself skipping through a bunch of songs looking for "pick me up songs". I thought I'd share my current faves:

1. As you may have already known from the last entry Lady Gaga's - Just Dance
2. Britney Spears - Circus ( that song is hot yo!)
3. I hate this part - Pussycat Dolls ( does this count? it's fun to scream "I gotta do it" over and over like Nicole does at the end of the song..hehe)
4. Bunch of Nigerian songs - Banky's ID Cabasa Remix of Capable, M.I's Teaser and Eldee's Bosi Gbangba top the list.
5. T.I and Rihanna - Live your life
6. Pink - So what
7. Keri Hilson and Timbaland - Return the Favor
8. Fall Out Boy - I don't care
9. Gym Class Heroes - Cookie Jar
10.Taylor Swift - Love Story

Others are Rihanna's Distubia, Rihanna and M5's -Never see your face again

I have to give a special mention to one song. It's by a coupla friends of mine Wole, Yemi and Z, who are jobless most of the time (except Z) it's called 'Wa' which in english translates to 'Come'..yup that kind. Everytime I hear this song it cracks me up but I promise it's a good song, here's the youtube video..Enjoy! just make sure you don't Wa as you listen lol!

I am more than sure but these are the ones I know I listen to a lot and I remember. Feel free to share yours if you have any.

Ps - Congrats to everyone fortunate enough to witness the swearing in of President Barack Obama.

What's on TV?

Happy New Year peoples! Hope each and everyone of you had a wonderful new year's day filled with new year resolutions that you will be breaking soon enough. 

Soo..What's on TV?

How many times have I heard this question and thought about this question since TV shows went on thanksgiving/christmas hiatus? There really is nothing to watch on TV, especially since the new fall shows were such a dissapointment. The only new show that I managed to try and watch  was Leverage (yeah the pilot episode was called The Nigerian Job) but it was a Meh for me.(my favorite blog reader, see I mentioned Leverage..hehehehe).

On the bright side, three awesome shows will be coming back for a new season, one of them being my favorite show. Here we go:

Nip/Tuck: Yay! my favorite dysfunctional tv show is bizzack on Jan 6 on FX channel.
Lost : my favorite what the hell is going on? show is bizzack on Jan 21 on ABC.
Scrubs : The best comedy that you are not watching is moving from NBC to ABC for its final season on Jan 6.

Off the top of my head also if you are still interested the Real World - Brooklyn a new season is coming up. based on previews though, it looks hella dry. Did I forget any new shows, feel free to remind me?

PS Update on my movie watching spree:

The Wrestler : very touching and heartfelt performance by Mickey Rourke, don't understand what special acting Marisa Tomei did sha. I felt it had a sucky ending. recommended for dvd.

Doubt: You get exactly what you would expect from a cast with Amy Adams, Meryl Streep and Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Superb performances by all. Reminded me a little of 'Notes on a Scandal'(go see if you haven't), everything was fine till the end. and to prevent spoilers I shall leave it at that.

Frost/Nixon: Very well done. Kudos to Frank Langella and Michael Sheen. 

Ok I am done, have a wonderful year!


I forgot..RIP to Jett Travolta, the 16 year old son of John Travolta and Kelly Prestoon, who died from a seizure while the family was on vacation in Bahamas. Such a horrible way to start the new year :(

PSS - As you may have noticed from the comments,I left out Damages, which I tried to watch but couldn't get into. It premieres on FX on Wed Jan 8. I have to say I do like the previews for the season premiere and not because it features my favorite song from Duffy's Rockferry album.:D
