The Release of Bloom and How Troye Sivan Impacted My Youth

Screen Shot 2018-08-31 at 12.15.10 AM

With heart filled synths and a story of newly found confidence and love, Troye Sivan breaks his way into the world of mainstream pop with his sophomore album, Bloom.  

The lustfully melodic album — which was heavily influenced by his boyfriend — is an ethereally storybook that feels so personal to Sivan, while also feeling relatable to his fans.

The ten track album brings much needed queer representation into the music scene with hits such as “Seventeen,” which tells his story about a relationship with an older man, and the album titled track, “Bloom,” which is literally about gay sex.

Screen Shot 2018-04-20 at 1.43.12 PM

After the bombing that took the lives of 22 people at Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman concert in Manchester, one can imagine the amount of tears and pain that has come from Grande and her team. Now almost a year later, Grande is back with rainbow prisms, upside down aesthetics, and the liberation of moving forward with No Tears Left To Cry (NTLTC), her first single since the tragedy.

Fans were speculating to hear a mournful ballad after listening to the teaser of NTLTC that was posted onto Grande’s social media before its release. However, after hearing the full track, it is clear that Grande is over the tears and is moving on to a state of optimism and happiness. “Ain’t got no tears left to cry / so I’m pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up / I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up” the 24-year-old sings.

3 Wrestlemania Weekend Predictions

wrestlemania-34-logo-superdome

This weekend in New Orleans is Wrestlemania weekend with Wrestlemania and NXT Takeover: New Orleans, but those are not the only wrestling shows on this weekend as Ring of Honor Supercard of Honor XII, Impact Wrestling vs Lucha Underground, Revolution Pro, Evolve, Crash, and many other promotions happening in New Orleans for Wrestlemania weekend.

Bullet Club Will Be Fine
Bullet Club at the moment has a very interesting feud in the works between leader Kenny Omega and fellow member Cody for leader of Bullet Club. It was started after Kenny helped his former Golden Lover tag team partner Kota Ibushi, but has seeds planted at a feud since last year at NJPW Dominion. The build up has been great with Being the Elite, New Japan, and Ring of Honor with all other Bullet Club members choosing sides, such as Tama Tonga staying out of it with the rest of Bullet Club OGs, but Marty Scurll and Hangman Page choosing to side with Cody, and the Young Bucks still being undecided, but Kota who isn’t a member on Kenny’s side. Whatever the outcome of the match between Kenny and Cody the Bullet Club will be changed, maybe Tama Tonga and the Bullet Club OGs coming out and attacking Kenny, Cody, the Bucks, Marty, Kota, and Hangman to set up the Elites vs OGs.

The Daily Blend’s March Top Ten 2018

march blog pic

Yo, people of the internet! I am BACK for the month, and I’m so excited for this blog. March is one of my favorite months of the year, and this year’s March just happened to be an amazing month for music!

With everything that is played on my show, you all probably think I have way too much happening in the skull area of my body. So, I want to give everyone a little insight as to what’s going on in my brain, without having to look at the “Recently Played” section on my Spotify. The solution I came to was to tell everyone about the hidden (and not so hidden) gems in my music library for the month. Some of the music I post will be at the top of charts, some of the music won’t be your style, some will be a band’s biggest hit that I’ve just been happening to listen to a lot, and some will be completely unknown to you!

So, to start it off, here’s just a couple of my favorite artists for March, a little bit about them, and some song suggestions:

The GOAT Daniel Bryan is Back!! 5 Dream Matches For The GOAT

Daniel Bryan had to forcefully retire from wrestling February 2016 due to medical reasons. He had suffered at least 10 concussions and had a lesion on his brain, which was the cause of his post-concussion seizures that he had hid from the WWE. He had to retire so they wouldn’t have another Chris Benoit incident which was very tragic, which was the cause of his brain being heavily damaged like an 85-year-old Alzheimer’s patient. Additionally, WWE did not want to have an accident happen to Daniel Bryan happen inside the ring. He did a farewell speech to the fans, and had a tribute for him.  However, overtime he started to get cleared by various doctors around the country, and has been doing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) as treatment for his brain. In that time he was working as the General Manager of Smackdown Live. In a recent storyline he’s been in a feud with Shane McMahon (Commissioner of Smackdown Live) over a feud Shane has with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. And last week, Sami and Kevin attacked Shane and injured him. This past Monday, Daniel was medically cleared by WWE doctors to return to the ring, and as punishment for attacking Shane, Kevin and Sami were fired (in storyline of course). And he took some nasty bumps from Kevin and Sami, and he has to medically examined after every match. There is a big rumor that Shane and Daniel will team up against Kevin and Sami at Wrestlemania. I have 5 dream matches that I’d love to see. Continue reading “The GOAT Daniel Bryan is Back!! 5 Dream Matches For The GOAT”
