Review On Two Chinese Songs for An Upcoming Chinese Series

Image
I've been posting way too dark posts and it's been making me uncomfortable. I wanted to post a more lighter post for my audience so here we are. I rarely put reviews on this blog much less talk about music. This might change in the future but it's not final yet. I have been following the updates on a Chinese drama that is soon to air called: Journey of the Flower or 花千骨。I haven't read the novel personally because I haven't been able to find the book in my Chinese bookstore and only read snippets online. What I can say is this is a very dramatic romance drama and heavy on spirituality and fantasy. I love series like these where stakes are so high.

Here is a short synopsis on the novel:
Hua Qian Gu is the world’s last God, so since young she has often been injured by demons and supernatural spirits. After her father’s death, she followed his bidding and went to Mt Shu to learn some skills. Then after the death of Mt Shu’s leader, she took over as the leader. Because…

This news article was heartbreaking but at the same time I couldn’t help but laugh just for a brief moment. I laugh at how idiotic the government is and how the commissioner is at labeling gang members as domestic terrorists.
Gang members are not terrorists. I think when they start creating bombs and anthrax and plan operations to blow up banks, federal buildings, and train stations are when you should start labeling them as terrorists. Gang members are just ordinary human beings that have been misled to lead a life of violence because they believe that is the only way they can earn lots of money. Or maybe some of them are just narcissists or sadists that love to see others suffer. One thing I can say for certain is they are nothing close to terrorists.

I have already made a similar post to this a few days ago. However, I just felt so sickened by turning on the news every morning and it just bothers me for the entire day when I hear how many lives have been lost again in a mere short number of hours during the night due to gun violence. It's saddening to see so many lives lost and makes those that choose to stay out late at night or have to work night shifts to be fearful. Nothing is predictable anymore or maybe it never was in violence. How murderers are never caught or it requires time to track them down and that only gives murderers to have more time to hurt even more people. 
I won't deny that I too have begun to feel fear when I have to work early morning shifts regardless of the neighborhood. You don't know who that person walking towards you or behind you is capable of or what their motives are. Society believes that moving up north from the Southside of the city will be safer but violence is everywhere. Where is …
