Youve got a fast car, and i want a ticket to anywhere.

Maybe at this point I should come clean and tell you the reason I haven't been updating so much in here is because i've got a tumblr account, which I haven't really told anybody about and am not planning to anytime soon.

the reason being is that the tumblr posts are ones which i tend to be more emotional and more touchy-feely. and i post there whenever im mad/irritated with someone/something/both, or when i feel sad. A sort of an outlet for my negative emotion; you can call it that. And ive been posting there more than i do here lately (which means i might just have to go on another retail therapy session soon to heal my spiteful distressed self, LOL)

Anyway, the reason im updating today to share agood news with you! have you guys heard of the band boyce avenue? They are basically a band formed by 3 brothers; Alejandro, Fabian and Daniel Manzano from Florida. They mostly do acoustic cover of popular songs on youtube as requested by fans. One of the brothers is a Harvard law school graduate, i think while the other two are a students in the uni of Florida. They started singing as a past time thing and uploaded their videos on you tube and around three years ago they became a hit. a HUGE hit!

I discovered them when i first came to the UK. i was talking to zul about this one linkin park song, and browsing for cover versions of it on youtube. I found them and at that time it only had a couple of hundred thousdand viewers i think and i was totally hooked! They cover songs from the 90 as well that hold loads of memories to me :)

Their versions are so good and they usually change the lyrics that are filled with sexual innuendos or nasty things to something much more meaningful and sweet. Amazing hey!! A playlist filled with their songs are on replay everyday, all the time now.

Now, three years down the line, theyve begin to produce their own songs tho wiki says they gonna slow production down this year as the other 2 brothers are gonna continue their studies. However before they slow down their singing career, they gonna have a tour!

So anyways, here's the good news! I woke up this morning and found out that boyce avenue is gonna do a Europe Tour later this year heyyyy!!! They'll have a gig in london, birm, manchester and cardiff in May!!! If you guys havent check them out yet, please do! just listen to a few songs and i promise you you will love them! And after you have check them out, pretty please teman i pergi gig diorang? :D

so, to start your assignment of discovering boyce avenue, have a listen to their cover to fast cars, by tracy chapman in collaboration with Kina Grannis, another of my fav youtube artist, which i shall talk more about later. For now, enjoy this amazing cover of an amazing song :)

ps- found the uku tab for this! :D

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
you relied on the video to make your point.
You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
