Gorillaz ARE BACK!

Image
Hello guys! 
I hope you're having an amazing week! 
Well, a few days ago, Alex M. (one of my best friends) told me that Gorillaz are back.
Oh yes, I can not believe this. I was sooooo excited!
After five years of absence, one of my favorite bands are back and they bring such great music.

DISCLAIMER: I do not own any of the images or songs on this post!

For the ones that don't know Gorillaz, here's some background about the band:

"Gorillaz are a British virtual band created in 1998 by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. The band consists of four animated members: 2D (lead vocals, keyboards), Murdoc Niccals (bass guitar and vocals), Noodle (guitar, keyboards, and vocals) and Russel Hobbs (drums and percussion). These members are fictional and are not personas of any "real life" musicians involved in the project.
 Their fictional universe is explored through the band's website and music videos, as well as a number of other media, such as short cartoons. In reality, A…

Movie Review - Passengers

Hello guys!
How are you doing lately?
Well, I want to talk about the latest movie that I've seen: Passengers.

WARNING: This review will contain some spoilers. Please keep that in mind and if you want to, keep on reading!


Plot:

"The starship Avalon is transporting over 5,000 colonists and crew in hibernation pods to the planet Homestead II, a journey that takes 120 years. Thirty years into its journey, the ship encounters an asteroid belt, in which it collides with a large asteroid. As a result of the collision, the ship's protective energy shield is weakened enough to allow a piece of it to pass through the shield, impacting the ship. This causes a malfunction that awakens one passenger, mechanical engineer Jim Preston (Chris Pratt), 90 years too early.

After a year of isolation, with no company except Arthur (Michael Sheen), an android bartender, Jim contemplates suicide. One day he notices beautiful Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence) in her pod. Her video profile reveals she is…

Anime Review - Gantz

Hello guys!
How are you doing lately? I hope you are well and happy.
This week I bring you an anime review. I miss doing this so much! I hope you like this as much as I do.

Let's get started!


Notes:
Episodes: 26
Status: Finished Airing
Aired: Apr 13, 2004 - Jun 22, 2004 

Plot:
A Japanese teenager waits at a train station, reading a trashy magazine featuring an idol enticing the reader with her big boobs. An elderly lady approaches the teenager, asking for directions. The teenager quickly mumbles a non-informative reply while thinking to himself what an annoyance the lady is, why should he give a shit about her? Oh look, a drunken tramp just fell onto the tracks and no one is going to help. Why should they? It’s none of their business, just look away and pretend you didn’t see it happen.

Back in 2014, I started watching Gantz and I only end up the anime this year (quite funny).
I really liked the series due to the story line. It's quite peculiar, I have t…

Leaving

Hello guys, I'm sorry for being absent these days, but I couldn't post anything due to lack of time.
I hope you're all amazing and that your week went super well!

This week's post will be something personal and I want to share some updates with you.
Let's get started!

As probably some of you know, I'm Portuguese and I lived in Portugal most of my life.
This year I decided to change my life a bit and to start a new life in France.
I have a degree in Languages and Foreign Cultures and the work market there is not the best. As I have my mom in France for almost 10 years and I decided to leave my country to start somewhere else.

It's not easy to do this, believe me. I have all my friends in Portugal and also my family.

The thing is: I do speak French for a few years and the problem is not the language barrier, I guess my fear of not being able to accomplish what I have in mind destroys my confidence.
Also, I'm super insecure and that fucks things a little bit for me…
