Golden – Ruth B

 

I can’t get enough of these lyrics right now, from the song ‘Golden’ by Ruth B. YouTube link at the bottom  ❤

The fire used to burn, all the words used to hurt

But you’re not like us, you are different
I couldn’t see that that was a compliment
Cause the last thing I want now is to be you
And the flames don’t feel as hot as they used to

Burn, burn, burn
They used to yell
You thought I was coal
My friend, I’m gold
Can’t you tell?

Burn, burn, burn
They used to yell
You thought I was coal
My friend, I’m gold
Can’t you tell?

Cause I’m not weak, I’m not broken I am bold
And the fire you put me through turned me into gold
I’m not done, I’m no loser
Watch me take on my bright future
Tonight I’m no bronze, I’m no silver
You’ll be thinking, damn I knew her
But you didn’t
Don’t get it twisted

Out of the ashes you buried me in
I, I am golden
I, I am golden

You tried so hard to break me down
Like a fire-breathing dragon, but I guess I took your crown
You pushed for me to change for you
But I’m so glad that I stayed true to who I am

Burn, burn, burn
They used to yell
You thought I was coal
My friend, I’m gold
Can’t you tell?

Burn, burn, burn
They used to yell
You thought I was coal
My friend, I’m gold
Can’t you tell?

Cause I’m not weak, I’m not broken I am bold
And the fire you put me through turned me into gold
I’m not done, I’m no loser
Watch me take on my bright future
Tonight I’m no bronze I’m no silver
You’ll be thinking, damn I knew her
But you didn’t
Don’t get it twisted

Out of the ashes you buried me in
I, I am golden
I, I am golden

The fire that you tried to burn me with, it made me who I am
All the things that you said I couldn’t do
Guess what, Yes I can

The fire that you tried to burn me with, it made me who I am
All the things that you said I couldn’t do
Guess what, Yes I can

Cause I’m not weak, I’m not broken I am bold
And the fire you put me through turned me into gold
I’m not done, I’m no loser
Watch me take on my bright future
Tonight I’m no bronze I’m no silver
You’ll be thinking damn I knew her
But you didn’t
Don’t get it twisted

Out of the ashes you buried me in
I, I am golden
I, I am golden, golden, gold
I, I am golden, golden, golden

Style

You've got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
 And I got that red lip classic thing that you like

Taylor Swift’s new music video for her 1989 album track ‘Style’ is out today! Looks simply gorgeous although I haven’t actually watched it yet because I’ve been too excited to post it!

Keep on Tay-Tay, I still love you even for your copyright and Spotify thingies.

That’s a Wrap!

I know, I know, it’s been a while but I’ve been super busy being the director of the shiny new steampunk web series known as A Murder of Crows which I’m sure you’ve all heard of by now. It’s feisty, it’s fun, but most of all it’s really close to my heart. It’s been a year now since this idea has been circling around my brain, trying to get out and eventually, it did. Thank god. I wrote the script, submitted it for reviews, changed it (drastically at times) and voilà! I’m sitting here, trying to stay awake on like 5 hours’ sleep thinking well, that’s it. All we have to do now is edit the damn thing and then there it is, ready for the world to watch, enjoy and love. Or watch, loathe and tear to shreds, but we’ll see. Audiences are very tricky to determine, but I figured if I like it, our audience will also like it.

It’s been a tough three weeks. We’ve done a lot of filming which includes an awful lot of late nights and early mornings. We’ve had stresses and fallings out, people being sad or angry or frustrated, but we’re all friends again now and we’re all excited to see what the edit will bring. It’s been lovely to see something that I’ve written and formed become something physical and real that other people believe in and I am so excited to present it to the steampunk community to see what everyone thinks of it. The dream then is for it to become a beloved web-series and for it to turn into something magnificent. I have plenty more ideas for other episodes and I desperately want to carry it on. It all depends of course on the reception and any funding, but that’s just how the industry works.

I’ll leave you with a couple of pictures to goggle over and I’ll try to keep you updated with what’s going on! I promise x

It’s Time…

I’ve just uploaded my first Vlog to this blog. Rhyming, innit. It’s the Pre Vlog Vlog. And tomorrow hopefully I’ll get the first review up somehow, somewhere. If you can’t understand my Yorkshire accent, then I apologise, but it’s not changing any time soon. There’s nothing else on the page at the moment, only this video. It’s 2 minutes, that’s all…I think…ha. Not sure.

Don’t hate on them…or me. I’m too adorable for that. I joke, of course.

Blogging on the Next Level

Calm down, it’s really not as exciting or futuristic as I may have implied. It’s just that I’ve been thinking about my YouTube account and how awfully bare it is and I’ve had the idea to start videoing my film reviews. Nothing huge, nothing big, just videos that’ll be like three minutes long and it’ll be yours truly talking about a film I’ve watched. I’m not confident they’ll become smash hits over night, I’m not exactly heavily followed on YouTube, but seeing as I’m sitting at home doing nothing for three weeks, I need a little project to be getting on with and it’ll mix this blog up a bit.

Laterz! Love you lots.

BTTF: Back to the Future: Live!

I found this YouTube video of some people performing the first Back to the Future movie all in a neat 10 minutes. Watch it and enjoy it! I think it’s hilarious 😀 Just a word of warning though, there is some explicit language throughout. 🙂

More Back to the Future stuff can be found at my specially made BTTF page: https://briholme.wordpress.com/films/back-to-the-future/bttf-news/
