As you guys may (or may not) know… I was unemployed for six months this year =(.  It’s okay though, I found a job, met new friends, and had a TON of fun.  I learned what makes me happy and started working on what I want to do as a career.  I started my new job on 10/04/10 and to treat myself to two hard weeks of labor I copped the new Far East Movement album titled Free Wired.

Let me tell you, I have LOVED the Far East Movement from yearrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs back!  I didn’t jump on the bandwagon after G6.  We are talking MySpace days!  I even wrote to them on MySpace one day (back when it was cool) and expressed to them how I LOVED their music and if they stayed with it they could go far.  They even responded back to my on my page! I was both stoked and embarrassed, but from that moment I knew they were good people!

So I was more than happy in supporting these guys cuz I have heard their music in the past and… for a second reason.  Maybe it is a bit political, but nevertheless, I wanted to support people breaking the stereotype. These men are FOUR Asian-American males who are actively making their name entertainment business.  I mean it’s hard enough to find a dark-skinned back female in the entertainment world let alone ONE mainstream Asian person period…  (I bet half of you didn’t thing of Margret or John Cho).  These guys are breaking down the stereotype and I’m here to support them!  It’s time that we see something more than a mass of the regular on that magazine covers or the music albums. How does that skittles tag line go… TASTE THE RAINBOW!

We are in America and we should support each other, not matter the race.  At the end of the day we all bleed red.

Aiight, enough with the New Age Equal Rights Movement speech! On to the album!

I was REALLY hoping that Like a G6 would not be my favorite song on the CD, but it was.  The song is catchy as all shiet, and I fell IN LOVE with it the FIRST time I heard it.  I was in a club somewhere about 4 months back and Shazamed that shiet!  Man when I saw it was Far East Movements I was floored.

I’m not going to review EVERY song on the CD, but I will review my other favorite 4.

In no particular order:

Girls on the Dance Floor ~ the first song off the CD and it brings your RIGHT in to dancing like a fucking maniac.

Rocketeer featuring Ryan Tedder of ONE Republic ~ Out of my top songs I believe this one is most radio worthy (ready).  Out of my top songs it’s the least club worthy.  I LOVE the song  and it’s something I’m going to be sharing with all my friends.

So WHAT ~ this song is fucking banging!  I was washing the dishes while listening to the whole CD nonstop and I had to stop washing my dishes to see what the name of the song was.  When a jam does that, you know it’s good.

2GETHER (FAR EAST MOVEMENT & Roger Sanchez f://Kanobby) ~ Okay… if Like a G6 was not on the CD this would be my FA-VOR-ITE jam!  This should be the next song they should release.  This one is an ABSOULT club banger!!!!  I was dancing to this song like no other!

Overall: if you are looking for a good Dance, Electro Hop CD you need to cop this like yesterday!  This is a CD I will be working out to!  All the songs are club hits and will keep you going.  So if you are pre-gaming for the night (meaning getting drunk before hitting the club), in the gym, or you hit that 2:30 PM fall out at work, pop this CD in (or download it from Amazon or iTunes) and it will have you moving!

The only real down side is that some of the beats of the songs blend together with the previous song (or the next song to come) and sometimes you get lost to what you are listing too.

In the end, the Far East Movement CD was worth the first dollars I used as discretionary income since having my job.  Cop that CD!  Support this artist, support good music, and TASTE THE MOTHER FUCKING RAINBOW!

I wrote this particular blog on my LUUUX account, but I wanted to post it here as well…

I woke up in SUCH a good mood today!

You know how you feel like NOTHING is going right for you?! I normally don’t tell too many people about my personal struggles and things that I am upset about. I hold on to a lot of inner turmoil. I keep it inside cuz this world already as enough negative energy.

However, this morning I woke up in a good mood. I just said:

FUCK all the haters
FUCK all the things i cannot control

LIFE IS A CELEBRATION!


DO NOT LET PEOPLE AND THINGS OUT OF YOUR CONTROL GET YOU DOWN!!!!

ONLY KEEP POSITIVE PEOPLE and PEOPLE WHO HAVE YOUR BEST INTEREST IN HAND AROUND

There are people who are going to try and bring you down because they see you elevating yourself. When you finally hit that level where you want to do better or other things there are ALWAYS going to be naysayers. Once you get them out of your life and rid yourself of negative thoughts you will wake up with a smile on your face.

DO YOU!!
THANK GOD FOR THE GIFT OF LIFE!
KEEP ON SINGING YOUR SONG…

 

I know I am!

Lyrics:
I woke up this morning with a smile on my face
And nobody’s gonna bring me down today
Been feeling like nothing’s been going my way lately
But I decided right here, an’ now, that my outlook’s gonna change
That’s why I’m gonna
Say goodbye to all the tears I’ve cried
Everytime somebody hurt my pride
Feelin’ like they won’t let me live life
Take the time to look at what is mine

I see every blessing so clearly
And I thank God for what I got from above

Chorus:
I believe they can take anything from me
But they can’t succeed in taking my inner peace from me
They can say all they wanna say about me
But I’m gonna carry on (Carry on)
I’mma keep on (keep on) singin’ my song

(La, la, la, etc.)

I never wanna dwell on the pain again
There’s no use in relivin’ how I hurt back then
Rememberin’ too well the hell I felt when I was runnin’ out of faith
Every step I’m ’bout to take moves towards a better day
Cause I’m about to
Say farewell to every single lie
And all the fears I’ve held too long inside
Everytime I felt I couldn’t try
All the negativity inside

For too long, I’ve been strugglin’, couldn’t go on
But now I’ve found I’m feelin’ strong and I’m moving on

Chorus:
I believe they can take anything from me
But they can’t succeed in taking my inner peace from me
They can say all they wanna say about me
But I’m gonna carry on, (carry on)
I’mma keep on (keep on) singin’ my song

Every time I tried to be what they wanted from me
It never came naturally, so I ended up in misery
Was unable to see all the good around me
Wasted so much energy on what they thought of me
Than simply just remembering to breathe
I’m humanly unable to please everyone at the same time
So now I find my peace of mind living one day at a time

In the end I answer to one god
Comes down to one love till I get to heaven above

I have made the decision
Never to give in
Till the I day I die no matter what
Im gonna carry on, I’mma keep on singin’ my song
(They can’t take anything from me)

Repeat Chorus x2
