[The Jukebox] S6E11 – Macross 82-99 – Fun Tonight

A genre that I have been listening to a lot in the last couple of years has been “Future Funk”… ahem, I mean “Future Funk 因為ヾ”

A genre born from the illustrious vaporwave sub-genre which was brought to popularity in the early parts of 2010’s with its sampling of music from the ’70s and ’80s English & Japanese pop and disco songs and the incorporation of synth-wave and other sub-genres of vaporwave and citypop.

[The JukeBox] S6E9 – WILLOW – Wait a Minute!

In my previous Jukebox, I wrote how the video-sharing service, TikTok was exposing artists and their music. Here is another song that was made popular from the app.

Will Smith’s daughter Willow burst onto the music scene at just 9 years old when she released the infamous song, “Whip My Hair” and since then she has gone and released 3 albums (The latest only being in July of this year)

Here is “Wait a Minute!” which has a nice chill beat.

Wait a minute!
I think I left my conscience on your front door step
Woah woah, wait a minute!
I think I left my consciousness in the 6th dimension
But I’m here right now, right now


Just sitting in a cloud, oh wow
I’m here right now, right now with you, oh wow, oh wow
I don’t even care
Run my hands through your hair
You wanna run your fingers through mine
But my dreads too thick and that’s alright


Hold on, wait a minute!
Feel my heart’s intention
Hold on, wait a minute!
I left my consciousness in the 6th dimension
Left my soul in his vision
Let’s go get it, oh, oh
Let’s go get it, oh, oh


Some things don’t work
Some things are bound to be
Some things, they hurt
And they tear apart me
You left your diary at my house
And I read those pages, you really love me, baby


Some things don’t work
Some things are bound to be
Some things, they hurt
And they tear apart me
But I broke my word, and you were bound to see
And I cried at the curb
When you first said “Oel ngati kameie”


Hold on, wait a minute!
Feel my heart’s intention
Hold on, wait a minute!
I left my consciousness in the 6th dimension
Left my soul in his vision
Let’s go get it, oh, oh
Let’s go get it, oh, oh


Some people lie to me
Some just tryin’ to get by
Some people I can’t hurt
Some just rather say goodbye, bye
Hold on, wait a minute!
Feel my heart’s intention


Hold on, wait a minute!
I left my consciousness in the 6th dimension
Left my soul in his vision
Let’s go get it, oh, oh
Let’s go get it, oh, oh

Protect & secure your Facebook account! [2FA]

Previously, I wrote about how to protect your Instagram account. Here is how to do this on Facebook!

Note: I would recommend doing this on the desktop version.

(Right-click and click on “Open image in new tab” to see them in full resolution)

Click on the arrow on the top-right and click on “Settings”

Click on “Security & Login” and click on “Edit” beside “Use two-factor authentication”

Click on “Get Started”

Choose “Authentication app” on the left and click “Next”

On your smartphone, down an “Authentication” app, like Authy (I personally recommend this) and set up an account.

On your authenticator app, scan the QR code and note down your backup codes and click “Next”

Your backup codes should be stored on paper in a secure location somewhere!

Enter the 6-digit code from your authenticator and press “Next”

And you are done!

As you have made a change to your account, you will need to enter your Facebook password to proceed!

This page now confirms that 2FA has been turned on.

Now when you go to log into Facebook on any device (Desktop, Laptops, iOS, Android, etc), you will not only be prompted for your password, but also your 2FA code.

[The JukeBox] S6E8 – Kero Kero Bonito – Flamingo

With the rise of the short-form video sharing servie, Tik Tok, (formally known as Musical.ly), it has allowed users to lipsync themselves with audio clips such as music pieces and audio recordings of people talking.

There has been also exposure of edited songs such as ‘bad guy but with a twist’ where they edit Billie Eilish’s ‘bad guy’ with a soundclip from Spongebob Squarepants.

One thing that TikTok has also exposed is indie artists with their lyrics being dubbed or acted out by users of the app.

A song called “Flamingo” from British/Japanese star “Kero Kero Bonito” was made famous to highlight that no matter what colour you are, you are ‘pretty cool’.

Here it is:

Lyrics:

 

How many shrimps do you have to eat?
before you make your skin turn pink
eat too much and you’ll get sick
shrimps are pretty rich


Nande aitsura wa pinku?
Doubutsu-en de omou to pinku
Tabemono de, sou nanda
Jitsu wa watashi wa tarako ga daisuki
Purasu ebi kani tabeyo
Pinku iro ni naru no
Dakara minna chigau iro
Ningen-de kanchigai
Shiteru yo ne


Black, white, green or blue
show off your natural hue
flamingo, oh oh owoah
if you’re multicouloured that’s cool too
You, dont, need to change
it’s boring being the same
flamingo, oh oh oh
You’re pretty either way


Tsuru no shippo shita ni mukatte magetara FURAMINGO〜
Imi fumei dakedo omoshiroi deshou
Niji iro ni somatte sekai
Kyou mo chikyuu no doko ka de
Ebi wo mushamusha tabete
Furamingo wa, pinku iro ni
Somatte ikuze 123!

Black, white, green or blue
show off your natural hue
flamingo, oh oh oh
if you’re multicouloured that’s cool too
You, dont, need to change
it’s boring being the same
flamingo, oh oh oh
You’re pretty either way


Flamingo


How many shrimps do you have to eat?

So about Wrestlemania 35

The following is a cross-post from my Wrestling site, SquaredCircle.ie

So about Wrestlemania 35… It was brilliant! Well, about 95% of it anyway. The only match that let it down was the Baron Corbin vs Kurt Angle match. Other than that, it was a solid way to begin the 2019/2020 season of WWE.

Without further ado, let’s have a recap of last night’s show!
