If Harry Potter was an anime


Super LSS: Super Bass

There is not a day at our home (in Zamboanga) that you will not hear singing.
And ever since I went home to “rest”, there is not a day that my sister would not sing Super Bass by Nicki Minaj.

It is understandable because the song is very catchy. Especially the part with:

“Boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, he got that super bass
boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, he got that super bass”

But my sister, she sings it from beginning to end.

<And another thing you need to know about me is that I easily “absorb” what other people are singing.
Whatever that song is. Even if I don’t know what that song is. If one will start singing it, I have this sudden urge to either continue singing it or start with my own version.>

Now I got this song STUCK in my HEAD!
Talk about the ultimate Last Song Syndrome (LSS). Not that I’m complaining.
It’s a wonderful feeling hearing and singing this song.
(Helps with my “rest”. haha)

I just want to share this feeling with others by sharing the original version and two AMAZING covers.

And my favorite version, so far…

To complete the experience, below are the lyrics.

Everybody sing. Let me hear you SING! 🙂

This one is for the boys with the booming system
Top down, AC with the cooling system
When he come up in the club, he be blazin' up
Got stacks on deck like he savin' up

And he ill, he real, he might got a deal
He pop bottles and he got the right kind of bill
He cold, he dope, he might sell coke
He always in the air, but he never fly coach
He a muthafuckin trip, trip, sailor of the ship, ship
When he make it drip, drip kiss him on the lip, lip
That's the kind of dude I was lookin' for
And yes you'll get slapped if you're lookin' hoe
I said, excuse me you're a hell of a guy
I mean my, my, my, my you're like pelican fly
I mean, you're so shy and I'm loving your tie
You're like slicker than the guy with the thing on his eye, oh
Yes I did, yes I did, somebody please tell him who the F I is
I am Nicki Minaj, I mack them dudes up, back coupes up, and chuck the deuce up

[Chorus :]
Boy you got my heartbeat runnin' away
Beating like a drum and it's coming your way
Can't you hear that boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass
Yeah that's that super bass
Got that super bass boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass
Yeah that's that super bass
Boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, he got that super bass
boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, he got that super bass

[Verse 2:]
This one is for the boys in the polos
Entrepreneur niggas in the moguls
He could ball with the crew, he could solo
But I think I like him better when he dolo
And I think I like him better with the fitted cap on
He ain't even gotta try to put the mac on
He just gotta give me that look, when he give me that look
Then the panties comin' off, off, uh
Excuse me, you're a hell of a guy you know I really got a thing for American guys
I mean, sigh, sickenin' eyes I can tell that you're in touch with your feminine side
Yes I did, yes I did, somebody please tell him who the F I is
I am Nicki Minaj, I mack them dudes up, back coupes up, and chuck the deuce up

[Chorus ]

[Hook:]
See I need you in my life for me to stay
No, no, no, no, no I know you'll stay
No, no, no, no, no don't go away
Boy you got my heartbeat runnin' away
Don't you hear that heartbeat comin' your way
Oh it be like, boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass
Can't you hear that boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass

[Chorus ]

Pause for Timelessness

I feel like I’m cheating in writing this.
Because technically, this is not “A View from Miami”.
This is “A View from Zamboanga”. Currently, I am in my hometown and is “recuperating” from a recent surgery I had undergone (don’t ask. haha).

<This is probably the longest I have stayed at the house I grew up in after EIGHT years. Ever since I started college, I only stayed home for a week twice a year at the most.>

Anyway, I was watching a show in arirang (Korean channel) where this supposedly famous Korean actress is backpacking in the US. She was in New York (imagine me green with envy) for three days only and one thing she said struck me. She wondered what time it was. Then she just shrugged her shoulder and said,

“Timelessness is a box. Traveling is that box.”

She doesn’t speak English that well but I got it. I got what she said.

There is this feeling of the time standing still when you are traveling. Even without the factor of time difference, going to new places is just like pushing the pause button.

Pause work.
Pause daily routine.
Pause reality.

Because of this I started remembering  some of the pauses I took these past two years.

Laguna with Teta and Lors

Samal Island in Davao!

River Rafting in Davao River

Boracay with Jenna!

Universal Studios Singapore

Universal Studios Singapore

Singapore again!

Bangkok

Kuala Lumpur!

Currently, I am in somewhat a pause that I wish would last forever. But the bitter truth is, the pause is only:

A temporary stop or rest; an intermission of action; interruption; suspension; cessation.

Life must go on.

Just remember that the Pause exists… so use it!

I encourage everyone to “Pause”…
…and Enter the box of timelessness.
