When 3 Music Worlds Collide

a review from the Blink 182, Lil Wayne tour Monday at Saratoga Performing Arts Center

When 3 Music Worlds Collide

Monday night at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, the crowd was treated to 3 different genres of music. From who you ask? No one other than popular punk rock band Blink 182, hip-hop artist Lil Wayne, and pop-punk band Neck Deep from the UK. So at first I looked at this lineup and I don't think I was the only one to scratch my head and ask 'why?' But after Monday night i guess things certainly turned out for the better. Neck Deep was the first band up, and at first I thought that it was weird to see them play on such a big stage like SPACs considering that they are used to playing crowds like small rooms and warped tour crowds. But the guys did a great job and the crowd definitely got a feel for them.

I was very excited for Lil Wayne for a couple reasons. Now if you're like me, you would know that Lil Wayne wasn't NOT all over the place when I was growing up. Like Blink, Lil Wayne peeked the same year as they were both approaching the mainstream audience. However, from almost most of my life Lil Wayne was all over with mixtapes, singles, and everyone's MySpace song. Yup, those were the days. Opening with 6 Foot 7 Foot, I already knew that this set was going to be one for the books. The whole performance was amazing, and it took me back to High School for sure. I think the rest of the crowd felt the same as me as everyone knew almost every single word. One thing that also took me by surprise was that Wayne played songs from his mixtape 'No Ceilings' as most Wayne fans know as a classic.

Last but not least, the band that the audience was waiting for. Now this was also a special show for two reasons. The first was that it happened to be Blink 182 Day for the band, also that the band was celebrating 20 years of their album that helped them with mainstream success 'Enema of The State'. Yes, the album with the sexy nurse on it, THAT one. They played the album all throughout from front to back. Nostalgia was in order and blink also performed other hit songs including songs from their latest album 'California'. In typical Blink fashion, the show ended with confetti and the crowd was roaring with cheers.

If there's anything to start the summer off we'll, it would be that. Overall 10/10 from everyone, and I sort of regret almost not attending due to the differences in everyone.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
