I'm 'Feeling All the Feelings' says Taylor Swift in a post as she Celebrates Her 13-Year Career.


Well, Taylor Swift considers number 13 to be her lucky number and with her newest album "Lover" receiving a record of twelve nominations at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards, including Video of the Year and Song of the Year, and winning Video of the Year. Taylor Swift is really the lucky one.

In honor of Taylor Swift, here are some of the best and most overlooked Taylor tracks for your pure enjoyment. 


1. Invisible

I mean, everyone knows about the album, but everyone seems to forget about this heartbreaking song about having a crush. I think it's a cute, painful song with a great melody and a great story to listen to — a significant throwback in 7th grade.

2. A Perfectly Good Heart

Do you remember your first heartbreak? This track was released when Taylor was still in her teenage years, and the song perfectly conveys the feelings a young person goes through  the end of their first serious relationship.

3. I’d Lie

This song was never on a T.S album, and I still wonder why on earth Taylor did not released it. There's something about the song that makes me sad whenever I listen to it. I didn't really understand it when I first heard it, but as I got older, this song just got better and better.

4. The Best Day

I don't know about you but whenever this track comes up in a shuffle play-I cry. "Best day" is a track from the album fearless. It is a heartwarming song about how Taylor's father loved her when she was little and continues to love her. Isn't that sweet?

5. Never Grow Up

I have always considered this track as a sister song of 'The Best Day' from Fearless. Swifties would probably say that 'Never Grow Up' is a dreamy take on childhood innocence. I personally love this track because it serves as a reminder to cherish every moment of love and joy. 

6. Haunted

The album Speak Now has a lot of underrated songs, and I don't understand why. Haunted, is one of my personal favourite track on this album but apparently, it's also one of the most underrated ones. 

7. Stay Stay Stay

This song  never fail to make me smile whenever I listen to it. It's an ultimate bop from the "RED" album, and for the longest time, it makes me believe that love actually does exist. 

8. I Almost Do

I Almost Do is a lyrical masterpiece, and I think everyone deserves to hear it at least once in their lifetime. I have no word for this song. Just Listen to it. Period.

9. Clean

Taylor wrote this song with Imogen Heap, and it's one of her most powerful songs. The melody and the beat of the song just take you slowly into a peaceful state of mind while the lyrics guide you and tell you to let all the sadness go. This track is just perfect. 

10. This Love

"This Love" was the very first song written for 1989 and was recorded shortly before the release of Red. Swift described the song as "Like saying goodbye to the past and the previous four albums". 

11. King Of My Heart

I have to be honest, this track from the Reputation album grew on me. It wasn't one of my favourite track on the album when it came out, but as I listen to it, the expressiveness of the main vocal took me to heaven. It's a surreal and dreamy song that everyone should listen to. 


12. Daylight

In this track, Taylor is like telling us that it's a new day for a new life. It's a new beginning. I feel Daylight is so underrated for bigger ballads in the album overshadow it, but it's one of my favourites so far. In this song Taylor gives the idea of hope that soon, everyone will see their version of Daylight in their lives.

13. It's Nice to Have a Friend

I was so taken aback the first time I heard "It's Nice to Have a Friend." I listened to the album in order, and it was just one of the most emotional experience after following her music for so many years.

5 Free Filipino Films to Watch While in Quarantine

5 Free Filipino Films to Watch White in Quarantine  - Metroscene Mag

Social isolation can be frustrating and numbing. As our social relationships slow down during the enhanced community quarantine, the best way to rekindle our souls is to view movies that embody the frailties of human stories. Recently, movie producers have been spoiling us with films uploaded for free streaming. Fancy a movie or two amongst this big list of free movies? 

These five movies are perfect to reminds us of the world we'll soon be free to see.

John Denver Trending



The film that sweeped awards from Cinemalaya 2019 is finally available for free streaming on iWant. This independent drama masterpiece marvels with its brave take on social media bullying, revealing the often abused stretch of the internet's influence beyond screens.

Starring the raw and brilliant young actor, Jansen Magpusao, and the timeless Meryll Soriano, John Denver Trending details the most human of struggles, and how our digital reputations are as vulnerable as the truths we carry within.


I'm Drunk, I Love You



Originally released in 2017, this independent romantic-comedy flick that revolves around the narratives of bestfriends, beer enthusiasts, and almost lovers, is TBA Studios' most recent surprise in their YouTube channel.

How can one drunk confession change the dynamics of friendship? In a final trip before their graduation, two friends find out the taste of confessional aftermaths that no chaser could ever erase. Starring Maja Salvador, Paolo Avelino, Dominic Roco, and Jasmine Curtis-Smith, this film will hit you harder than alcohol.


Edward



Set in a public hospital, Edward follows the story of the titular teenage boy left to take care of his sickly father. In time with the present conditions of our society, the film awes it audience with its gut-wrenching truths in our healthcare system, and the little attention it receives from our government.

Originally relased exclusively for the 2019 Cinemalaya, the film can now be streamed on iflix for free. Lead by Louise Abuel as Edward, and Ella Cruz playing the role of the love interest, this coming-of-age tale dramatizes how one can carry the burden of societal and political faults at an early age.




Bliss



Disabled from an accident in a production shooting, an actress was forced to reside in her secluded home under the care of her secretive husband, and an eccentric and cruel nurse.

Another treat from TBA studios, this critically acclaimed psychological thriller shows the transitions from fame to madness, as the lines between reality and dreams begin to grow shorter. Starring Iza Calzado, Ian Veneracion, TJ Trinidad, Adrienne Vergara, and Micheal De Mesa, this film delights in the most terrifying tumults of immutable horror.


Bar Boys



Perfectly timed with the coming release of the Bar Exam 2019 results, Bar Boys gives viewers a peek into the hardships and successes faced by law (and non-law) students -- from long tedious note reviews and shaky recitations, to barkada hangouts and online gaming. The film presents the story of four friends, whose dreams were built on thick law school handouts and DOTA.

The makers of the film uploaded the full copy of the movie on Youtube last March 17, in view of the 'enhanced community quarantine' in Luzon. Played by Carlo Aquino, Rocco Nacino, Kean Cipriano, and Enzo Pineda, this film will make its viewers sob tears of both joy and sorrow.

Flicks like these have an undeniable universal appeal. From friendship and family, to truths, kindness, and cruelty, these films cover the ground on what it truly means to be human. And what else could be more human, than celebrating art in the comforts of a home and familial safety?

UFOs are real, but it's 2020 and nothing scares us anymore


UFOs? What about it? 


 It's not even half of the year yet, but we've been through a lot. But if in case you miss it, here's a quick rundown of 2020 so far: Volcanoes erupted, Kobe Bryant died, and a pandemic is currently sweeping the planet —nothing can scare us anymore—not even aliens. 

The Pentagon released raw footage of three close encounters involving "unidentified aerial phenomena" flying and moving quickly over the pacific in 2004 and 2015. But everyone seems to be unbothered.




It's the first time UFO videos have been declassified by any government around the world, after decades of speculation about the UFOs. The videos, titled "FLIR," "GOFAST" and "GIMBAL" have been officially released by the Pentagon on the Naval Air Systems Command website. 

 Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough said that this move hopes to "clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos.

 Life's been different since the Pope slapped that person's hand no?

Rainbow Rowell’s ‘Eleanor & Park’ is Going to be a Movie!

Monday, April 27, 2020


Remember that “kilig” you got from Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park? Well, hold on to your hearts once again, because a movie based on the best-selling young adult novel is officially in the works!

 Picturestart has acquired the film rights to Rainbow Rowell's debut novel, and will be producing alongside Plan B that has movies like ‘World War Z,’ ‘Selma’ and ‘Moonlight’ in its portfolio.

 “This book is very close to my heart, and I’ve always felt very cautious about adapting it,” Rowell said about the news. “But everyone at Picturestart and Plan B has so much respect for the story and the characters. I really feel like I couldn’t have found a better group of people to trust with Park and Eleanor — and I can’t wait to see this project come to life.”

Rowell will be part of the production as well. She’s been tapped to write the movie’s script and will receive an executive producer credit.

 In Case You Missed It 


Eleanor & Park follows the story of two misfit teenagers living in Nebraska who meet one day at a school bus. Their friendship gradually evolves through comic books and mixtapes, until they both fall head over heels for each other despite all odds. Eleanor & Park was Rowell’s second (and arguably best) novel. It was followed by the equally great Fangirl.
