Recently, I sat down with Jordan and Andrew of Apollo LTD and asked them questions about their humbling begin, their musical inspirations, their new song and their plan for the future. With the love of electronic beats and groovy hooks on the rise, these guys should definitely be on your radar.

The start of Apollo LTD sounds similar to that of many other groups. The two guys, Jordan and Andrew met as random roommates at Belmont College in Nashville, Tennessee. There they dabbled in other rock bands and started their exploration of music.

When they felt like they had cultivated all they could from their previous outlets, they came together and started their duo. Shortly after splitting off on their own they came up with their name, Apollo LTD. When I asked what prompted this name Jordan explained that the name stemmed from their fascination with space. Growing up in the 90’s they were infatuated with shuttle launches and that’s where Apollo came up on their radar.

They thought the name was fitting as the Apollo space program and their group were both birthed from ambition and new ideas. After getting their named questioned for plagiarism reasons, they added the LTD to the end. They said that “if we could say the name with a straight face” they had come up with one that was good enough.

Their latest released track is "One in a Million." Though they aren’t typically into writing songs about love, this one just happened to draw inspiration from their lives as happily married men. Adam added that “musically it felt good” and that is was odd to see this song become the first released song.

Though, they don’t typically write songs that could be considered “love songs,” they thought “One in a Million” was an organic representation of their lives. They disclosed later that a lot of their lyrical inspirations come from reflection on life in general, whether that be mentally or emotionally. They also draw most of their inspirations through their personal relationships.

They’re also big believers in pop music, hooks, energy, and groove. This makes sense as they take musical inspiration from the like of Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, Earth Wind and Fire, and the Beatles.

If you’re looking to hear more from Apollo LTD, you’re in luck. Jordan and Andrew are currently in the processes of recording and they’re releasing a new single next month. The first part of their new EP will be released at the beginning of 2018, and later on next year the second half will be released as well, thus creating their full-length album.

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

5 TV Shows From The '90s And Early 2000s That You Loved But Probably Forgot About

Snacking on cosmic brownies, watching TV marathons and cuddling up with your "Lizzie McGuire" fuzzy blanket… What more could you want?

Those of us who were kids during the 1990s or early 2000s know how amazing television shows used to be. Not only did they have great stories and casts, but they addressed important messages in great ways.

"Malcolm in the Middle" (2000-2006)


Weekday evenings weren't the same without seeing this iconic program. "Malcolm in the Middle" was one of the most wholesome shows of the early 2000s, and it never failed to make anyone laugh. Plus, no matter how outlandish the situations Malcolm and his brothers got into, we all seemed to relate in one way or another.

"Hey Arnold" (1994-2004)


A Saturday mid-morning icon, "Hey Arnold" always had hilarious episodes that made our childhood great. It was full of jokes that made us cry with laughter as kids, and they have the same effect when rewatching as adults.

"Are you Afraid of the Dark?" (1990-2000)

Giphy



"It happened to a friend of a friend."

"Are You Afraid Of The Dark" was the show that got most of us interested in true crime during our teenage and adult years. The show was full of spooky ghost stories that seemed fake while we watched them. But they still kept us awake at night.

"Dexter's Laboratory" (1996-2003)

Giphy

"The Big Bang Theory," who? "Dexter's Laboratory" was quite possibly one of the most iconic shows of my childhood. The show's humor was always a perfect mix of cartoon violence, witty lines and amazing plots.

Plus, what kid didn't want to see crazy, fake experiments go wrong?


"Babar" (1989-2002)

Giphy

"Babar" quite possibly was the most wholesome show of our childhoods. Seeing these regal elephants go about their day every Sunday morning was a right of passage (kids today just don't seem to get it).

"Babar" never failed to teach children valuable lessons in positive ways, and it always threw in a dash of comedy. Plus, who wouldn't want to see adorable cartoon elephants on TV?


The '90s and 2000s were an amazing time to be alive. Snacking on cosmic brownies, watching TV marathons and cuddling up with your "Lizzie McGuire" fuzzy blanket… What more could you want?
