Random selfie again to entertain you all.
I've been watching Luke Holland's drum covers and he's crazy good, like crazy crazy good, like drum prodigy kind of crazy good. Easily one of the best drummers in the world today, real pity I never heard of him until the APMAs (Alternative Press Music Awards, which is a load of crap btw, but more on that later) when Mike Fuentes won Best Drummer and there was a ton of comments on youtube about how Luke should've won.
Why I'm saying the APMAs is crap is because it really was a popularity contest- winners were determined through voting and obviously the trendcore bands would've been taking home the bulk of the awards. PTV bagged three of them- Best Drummer, Best Bassist and Best Live Band- but I honestly felt like there were bands nominated who were more deserving of those awards, and that's coming from a fan.
But I gotta admit they were probably most deserving of Best Live Band, out of those three awards. Everyone knows they tour like crazy and it's damn hard to keep up with a life like that, especially given the kind of music they perform. And their shows are amazing.
I felt sad that My Chemical Romance lost to Black Veil Brides for Most Dedicated Fans, but I'm also happy for BVB because though I'm not a fan, no one can deny that they've an awesome fanbase.
Best International Band: I really really felt like Silverstein should've won instead of BMTH but I might just be biased.
Phil Manansala did not deserve Best Guitarist and I guess he knew that because he wasn't there to receive the award.
Song of the Year nominees were absolutely shitty. It was like they got ATL and Vic to win on purpose.
I love All Time Low- heck, I'm more than nuts about them- but there are lots of better songs out there that weren't nominated, and A Love Like War was only that well-received because it was a catchy pop song featuring both ATL and Vic Fuentes.
Again, the APMAs were bull. Just a smart marketing tool. (hey it rhymes har har)
Just came home today from a 3D2N staycation with Lum and SJ. It was actually quite a flop, probably cause we didn't really plan our stay properly and there were unforeseen circumstances. But it's alright, we still had fun!
Felt like a mother of two today because I came home and my parents were lepak-ing in front of their respective laptops, and I had to go down to buy groceries and make tuna sandwiches for dinner for us.
Which reminds me, last week my parents were saying that I wouldn't last long overseas in a foreign country because I can't cook at all, so over the week I made potato salad and cooked spaghetti.
Doesn't sound like much but it was quite a feat for someone who's only ever boiled water in the kitchen. (Upper sec dinner date days at T's house with her and L don't count because they did most of the work haha) (The salad and spaghetti tasted quite good, if I may say so myself)
Haha abrupt end bye
