New Turkish Music

At the beginning of the year I did a couple of posts on new music for 2018. You can read them here:

I mentioned I would do another post on new Turkish music, so here it is. :)

Today's video is Mine by American singer Bazzi. His full name is Andrew Bazzi and he got started in his career by sharing music on Vine. His song Bring Me Home was a Vine Featured Track in 2015. His singles include Alone, Beautiful and Sober.

Mine was released last October and became a internet meme. The official video was uploaded at the end of January. Please note that that the song is explicit. :)

New Teen Mom UK Series

Teen Mom UK is back for a third series next week. We'll find out what's been going with Mia and her daughter Marliya, Megan and her children Dylan and Dulcie Mae, Chloe and son Marley, Amber and her little boy Brooklyn, and Sassi and daughter Zena'ya. (Original cast member Naomi and her little girl Kyanna left   in Series 2 and were replaced by Sassi and Zen'aya). Here are some quick updates. :)


Sassi, 19,  and her boyfriend Darren have sadly split-up because Sassi felt he wasn't doing enough to help her with Zena'ya, now 1. But she hopes that they become a happy family again in the future.  You can read more here:

Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Aashiq Banaya Aapne from the new Bollywood film Hate Story IV. It's an erotic drama/thriller about two brothers and a girl out for revenge. Urvashi Rautela stars as lead Tasha, alongside Vivan Bhatena and Karan Wahi. It's the fourth instalment in the Hate Story series.

The playback singers are Himesh Reshammiya who also sang the original version in the film of the same name, and Neha Kakkar.

I don't think there are too many  erotic thrillers in Bollywood! Since it's an industry known for being more conservative, and those actors and actresses who kiss in films - eg. Emraan Hashmi (who started in Aashiq Banaya Apane) and Mallika Sherawat- have become known for it. But there are some  such as Jism, Murder (which Mallika stars in) and  the rest of the Hate Story series.  The Aashiq Banaya Aapne movie had some racy scenes as well. I've seen Aashiq Banaya but not any of the Hate Story films. This one sounds good though, I'd like to watch …

More X-Files Episodes

Sorry that the post is later again this week; I started it yesterday but went out for a meal with my dance group and didn't have time to finish. :)

Back in 2014 I did a post of my Top 10  X-Files episodes which you can read here:

Now Season 11 is currently on in the UK, here's a follow ups of more of my favourite episodes.  While the Top 10 post is in the order that I like the episodes, this one is in chronological order.

Unless otherwise stated videos are trailers. Post contains some spoilers. :)

Eve (Series/Season 1, Episode 11)

Two men are murdered in startlingly similar ways (blood drained out of holes in their necks) at exactly the same time. When Mulder and Scully (played by David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson respectively) investigate they discover that the men's daughters Teena Simmons (played by Sabrina Krievens) in Connecticut and Cindy Reardon (played by her real life twin Erika) look identic…

Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Baby Don't Stop by Ten and Taeyong from K-pop group NCT U, the sub unit of the larger group NCT. The full NCT group is taking part in a project called  NCT 2018 and NCT U returned earlier this month with the single Boss. They also have 3 new members- Winwin, Jungwoo and Lucas.

New J-pop Releases

It's been  a while since my last post on J-pop releases. I last did one back in June in fact! So here's the first J-pop releases post of 2018, with a bonus K-pop release!

Koda Kumi- PARTY

Here's the new video for the song PARTY by my fave Japanese solo singer Koda Kumi. It's from her new album  AND which is set for release on 28th February. The album is said to include her previous singles LIT, and NEVER ENOUGH. Koda will also bring out a second album later in 2018.

PARTY is more of a dance song than some of Kumi's other music. This video is the short version and was uploaded on 8th February.
