Spring 2019 Carnival Fun Playlist

The weather is finally getting warmer in NYC, and I cannot wait until it’s consistently 60-70° F out!

Springtime brings the gorgeous weather, pretty flowers, and fun outdoor carnivals and fairs. I’ve created a spring playlist with a carnival theme for your spring enjoyment. From Ferris wheels to carousels, let’s take a ride with these ten carnival-themed songs:

1. Fairground, Leo Kalyan. “Lose your cares in the afterglow, and spin me around, round.”

2. Carousel, Skylar Spence. This tune will have you “spinnin’ like a carousel.”

3. Round & Round, Selena Gomez & The Scene. Don’t go getting dizzy on me now.

4. Mannequin, Britney Spears. Don’t “scream your lungs out” on that ride.

5. All That’s Left, Manila Killa ft. Joni Fatora. “When we go ’round and ’round on this carousel.”

6. Carousel (Bobby Green Remix), Melanie Martinez. Go ahead, just dance your way through spring with this beat.

7. Merry Go Round, Kacey Musgraves. Doesn’t Kacey go so well with a beautiful spring day at the carnival?

8. The Real Thing, Phoenix. “Turn the eternal carousel on.”

9. Reforget, Lauv. But whatever you do, don’t let your “head [spin] like a carousel, over and over.”

10. All Stars, Martin Sloveig ft. ALMA. A spring anthem.

Happy Spring!

 

Fan Art Fridays: ‘Alita: Battle Angel’

Happy International Women’s Day!

Yeah, it’s been a while since I’ve done a Fan Art Fridays, I know.

I saw the new film Alita: Battle Angel, based on the Japanese manga series by Yukito Kishiro Battle Angel Alita, in theaters a few weeks ago. I’m usually not one to jump at the opportunity to see an action movie in theaters but this one seemed interesting, and even though I hadn’t read the manga, there was something drawing me to it. (I also had a promo code to buy the tickets but that only influenced 25% of my decision to see it).

Although Alita is a fictional character, I think she’s perfect to feature for a Fan Art Fridays post that falls on International Women’s Day. I think it’s really important for literature and film to feature strong females such as Alita to inspire young women to become leaders and fight for what’s right.

I love this fan art I found by sonny only on ArtStation because it shows Alita’s soft side as she watches a butterfly fly away off of her hand. But don’t be fooled—Alita unleashes her BAMF mode when necessary.
