Throwback Thursday – 2011’s Cinescape

Such a killer year for movies! And that ending quote really couldn’t be more perfect. I can’t wait to see what 2012’s will look like.

I’m Getting Ready by Michael Kiwanuka

Prepare your ears for the sound of not just music, but magic. Michael Kiwanuka is British, Ugandan, and talented all at the same time!¬†You may not have heard of him, but this musician has such ease with his lyrics and guitar it’s hard to stop listening. So please, sit back, relax, and take in his poetic tunes.

Ellie Goulding- Anything Could Happen

The Queen of Instagram has her fans submit their photos for a beautiful montage of lyrics and images. Just two years ago we’d all be like, “what’s an Instagram?” But now we see, more than ever, the infiltration of social media into everything we hold dear. Not such a bad thing when it produces something this artsy and meaningful.

Ugly Modeling: Characters Welcome

The name seems pretty straightforward, but Ugly Modeling Agency goes beyond the prejudice of unusual appearances and strives to make the most out of fascinating personalities. National Geographic is pretty reliable for thinking out-of-the-box when it comes to content, and their series Taboo is no exception. The show itself is based on the weirdly-acceptable lifestyles of certain cultures, and does its best to bewilder viewers.

I, for one, embrace the series in all its strangeness and applaud National Geographic for taking audiences outside of their comfort zone.

Check out Taboo and more videos at the National Geographic YouTube channel.
