Adam Levine : 2013 Sexiest Man Alive

I’ve always thought he was attractive, but Adam Levine just keeps getting sexier and hotter as the years go by.Adam LevineI’ve always thought that he was attractive even when I weren’t a big fan of his, but ever since I saw this clip of him on YouTube, man,  was hooked. The 2013 Sexiest Man Alive accepted that award on the Jimmy Kimmel show with such humourous, witty and sassy attitude (without appearing arrogant) that you just can’t help but be drawn in by that charming confidence.  As cheesy as it sounds, since then, I started being an avid Adam Levine fan. Come on. It is hard to resist this guy! My personal opinion of course. 😛 Specially when he can check of a couple of the things in my list of ‘things that makes a guy more attractive’. Lol!

First up! He’s silly in an adorable way, but never coming off as dumb or a clown.Adam Levine_funny

He’s also flirty, in a really sweet way. Haha! Yes, I know I sound totally like a fangirl. Adam Levine_dreamy

He loves dogs! Man, that’s a big point added in my book. Adam Levine_puppy
He’s kind. Somewhat. Saw some paparazzi stalking him, taking pictures of him, and decided to put those rolls of film into better use. Adam Levine_kind
Last but not least, and this plays a big role in my list of ‘things that makes a guy more attractive’. He is musically talented. On top of writing songs and singing lead for his band, the Maroon 5 frontman also plays a couple of musical instruments. Namely the acoustic guitar, the lead guitar and the drum. And he is bloody good at them! *swoon*Adam Levine_guitarAdam Levine_drums
So yeah, while I’m not really a big fan of the tattoo sleeve he sports, Adam Levine is definitely one of the hottest and of course sexiest celebrity I’ve come to like. And if you asked me, Adam won this incredibly cheesy title not because of how he looks, cause come on, Hollywood is filled with gorgeous man! But rather , it is because of his attractively crazy yet charming personality.

Note : Jensen Ackles will always be at the top of the list, but Adam does come close to that spot. 😀

Oh, Jensen! You’re Just Too Adorable!

Came across this set of pictures of Jensen Ackles during the recent JIBCon 2013, while surfing the net. Oh gosh! My heart just melted……. *swoon*

So what happened was, Misha Collins, who was on stage with him at that time, was fooling around and decided to clip a baby panda toy onto his microphone. And his reaction was captured on camera. *squeal*

And if you watch the video of this on YouTube, as unamused as he looks, when the panda fell off a short while later, he actually looked disappointed. Aarrggghhhhh! His cuteness and adorableness is killing me! Then again, what’s new, right? 😉 Lol! He’ll always be the definition of the perfect man, in my opinion. 😉

Note : This set of gorgeous pics is by a Supernatural fan who goes by the name ‘redteekal’. Redteekal’s Tumblr page has tons of good quality, gorgeous pictures of the Supernatural casts, mainly Jensen and Jared of course!

The Crush

It’s quite a …………… fluffy feeling, to develop a crush on someone. Yes. I know fluffy is not a word used to describe a feeling, but it’s the best way I know how to express it. Okay. Not really making sense, but yes, it’s a giddy feeling. That, of course is provided you don’t fall too deep. That’s when the hurt comes in if your affection is not reciprocated. But if it’s only a minor girly crush, then it’s a fun thing. The kind of crush that you know it’s just nice to crush on but you seriously doubt you’ll be with the person in the end. This is what I call the feel good crush.

Just a little something to add some spice in your life. The little skip in the heart when he looks over to you, the butterfly that flutters in your tummy when he talks to you or smiles at you, the bright smile that would rival the sun when he cracks a joke or say something funny to you, etc etc. 🙂

So I realized that as extrovert as I am, I’m more frequently than not, attracted to quiet guys. Quiet, but not meek. What most people would describe as the strong silent type. But in my case, with a sense of humour when needed. 😛

Anyways, the one who’s quiet, smart, musically talented (this upped the attractive points, obviously), friendly and helpful with a little quirky sense of humour is so adorable!!! Physically, he’s just average, normal. Geeky, a little dorky, and definitely nerdy. But as a person, so adorable! Turns my heart all mushy! *giggles* But yeah, it’s just something to giggle and go ‘fluffy’ (yes, I know fluffy is not usually used to describe situations like these, but get over it.. geez) over. I’m definitely not expecting anything from it. Heh. Can’t even see or imagine it. Haha. Just a a little something to spice up the mundane life. TeeHee!

<3 FUN. <3

Since the days of Backstreet Boys, Westlife and a1, I haven’t found a band that I can truly call ‘one of my favourite bands’, until now. And this is a real band. The music instruments, live music and all. With their songwriting skills that produces really unique songs and their ability to sing and play live (really well, if I may say so), there’s not doubt at all thatFUN. caught my attention for good. The band is made up of 3 guys who may not have ‘those stereotypical boyband looks’, but definitely have more talent than a few boybands combined together. ;)Fun_325I’ll admit that I only found out bout this band after their hit single from their second album ‘We Are Young’ hit the radio stations last year. But at that time I just thought that it’s a really cool and unique song. Love the song, yes. But one good song doesn’t make me interested in a band. Then when ‘Some Nights’ was released, I decided that I really had to check out this band cause their songs are really pretty awesome. So I went to search for the songs from their first album and their latest second album. That’s when I fell in love with this band. Their first album is really not that popular, but it has some of the nicest songs ever written. And every song from both their albums have that distinctive style that sets them apart from all artistes in the market today. Every single song was written by them. They don’t need to hire a songwriter like most artistes do nowadays. And when I YouTube for some of their concerts’ clips, I was pretty much blown away. Sometimes they have a full band with them, but other times, it’s just Andrew on the piano, Jack on the guitar, and Nate singing solo. No engineered music, no pre-recorded sounds. Just pure raw music. Super nice. Watching them play and sing live so well just officially made them one of my favourite band of all times.

The 3 of them really are a bunch of musically talented guys. As someone who absolutely loves music, I find it hard to resist fawning over bands like this. Haha.

There’s Andrew Dost, the musical genius. He can play a whole lot of musical instruments.8434998826_2fb220888d_zIn the band, Andrew mainly plays the piano and keyboard. But he can also play the guitar, bass guitar, trumpet, French horn, Flugelhorn and the drums. See what I mean? Freaking musical genius.

Then there’s the guitarist, Jack Antonoff.Jack-Antonoff-620x400I am mad crazy over his guitar skills. No doubt he’s good at electric guitar as well. But when I hear him play the acoustic guitar in some of the unplugged versions of fun.’s songs, I pray every night that I’ll be able to do that one fine day. Top it off, this fella plays drums too.

Finally we have the voice of the band. Nate Ruess.Nate+Ruess+KIIS+FM+2012+Jingle+Ball+Night+0U1FMFU3vUIlLet me just say that I’m so in love with his voice. Really. And the way he sings the songs. Try listening to some of the live performance to feel the goosebumps. The good kind. ;)And even though he plays no instruments, he is just as talented. Nate Ruess has crazy mad skills in composing songs. He’s like the main songwriter for many of the songs on their album. With all that talent going on, I might just have develop a little crush on fun.’s lead singer. Yes, I’ve developed a crush on this skinny jeans and high-water pants wearing lead singer. But no, he will never surpass my TV boyfriend, Jensen Ackles, as the most perfect guy in the universe.tumblr_ly6apgsHMr1qh5df5o1_500Just saying. :P Lol!

Yeah, I have a thing for musically talented guys. ;) That’s why I think these guys from fun. are awesome even though they’re really not that fantastically good looking. ;)

Another thing that stands out about this band is their openness in defending the LGBT community. Andrew, Jack and Nate are straight guys (they made that statement loud and clear at quite a number of interviews), though they sometimes look otherwise. ;)mainfun-grammys-456-feb-10-2013Especially with the skinny jeans and high-water pants that they like to wear so much. Not to mention wearing their shoes without any socks or with really bright statement-making socks.tumblr_m6mkopumGO1qivt8go1_500See what I mean? ;) But they’ve all stated that they’re straight with Jack dating Lena Dunham and Nate dating Jack’s sister, Rachel Antonoff (though there are rumours claiming they just broke up, oh well). And yet, they made sure their stand is heard loud and clear. Together with Rachel, fun. created The Ally Coalition to fight for marriage equality. According to them, if you don’t voice out and make your stand, it’s the same as you’re supporting marriage inequality and discrimination of the LGBT community. Word.

I’m as straight as a chopstick. Lol. I’m a girl who loves guys. I’m interested in guys. I’d love to find a nice guy and get married in the future. But that doesn’t mean I have to support only straight marriage and be against same-sex marriage. I don’t think there’s a need to discriminate people just because they prefer to love those of their own gender. Everybody deserves a chance at love. Usually girls are more open to fighting for this cause. Straight men are more reserved, specially straight men in Asia. Maybe they feel it affects their manliness of something. And that is another reason why fun. stand out to me as a great band. Besides their musical talents, they decided to put their fame to good use. They’re not ashamed or shy to voice their support for marriage equality. They aren’t worried that their dressing and their stand in marriage equality may reduce their manliness. THAT‘s what makes them so cool.fun (1)fun ewSo yeah, pretty obvious I’m now a fun. fan. :) Love all their songs in both their albums. Would recommend it to anyone who’s interested in real music. Some songs may need a second or third hearing before you’ll start really like them, but I can guarantee, almost every song will be addictive once you’ve heard it 2-3 times. ;)

Just in case you don’t know (yes, I’ve got friends who knows and love the songs, but don’t know they’re actually from fun.), some of their more famous songs are ‘We Are Young’, ‘Some Nights’ and ‘Carry On’. ;)

But among all their songs, I like this one the best. It’s from their first album, Aim And Ignite. It’s called ‘The Gambler’, written by Nate for his parents. One of the sweetest and most beautiful love songs ever written without all those sappy lyrics. ;) Enjoy!

Angeles

Okay. As I was (and still am) fangirl-ing in the post before, this is the song that made my heart skip a beat or two……. or more. 😀

Jensen Ackles can now proudly add another item (or two) to his never-ending list of talents, which includes acting, photography, directing, playing a couple of different sports, etc etc. He sings so beautifully in this song, the husky voice bringing a sense of calm and serenity, yet a touch of rawness that captures the heart. And previously when I posted about him singing ‘The Weight’ with Jason Manns, I knew he could play the guitar averagely well, though strumming doesn’t really display much of a person’s skills. But, in this song, ‘Angeles’, which he covered, I gotta say, he proves that he actually excels beautifully, as far as guitar playing goes. Takes real skill to play like that and sing at the same time. Trust me. I know. And if you ask me, ‘Angeles’ may be a very nice song to listen and enjoy, but hell, it ain’t an easy song to sing. The way the melody is written, it’s not easy to sing it perfectly without carrying the melody out a little wrongly. Try doing it without Jensen Ackles singing in the background and you’ll know what I mean.

But this man, Jensen Ackles, he did it perfectly without the luxury of a fully equipped recording studio. He actually recorded the song in his trailer with his friend Steve Carlson, during one of his breaks while filming ‘Supernatural’ on set. Some parts of the MTV are clips that were captured by co-star Jared Padalecki while they were recording the song in the trailer. How awesome is that?! Just proves that he’s got the real pure talent and not those with the help of high-end equipment, like many of the artistes of late. Heh.

Angeles (by Jensen Ackles)

Someone’s always coming around here trailing some new kill,
Says I see your picture on a hundred dollar bill,
What’s a game of chance to you, to him is one
Of real skill,
So glad to meet you,
Angeles…

Picking up the ticket shows there’s money to be made,
Go on and lose the gamble that’s the history of the trade,
Did you add up all the cards left to play to zero,
And sign up with evil,
Angeles…

Don’t start me trying now,
Cause I’m all over it,
Angeles…

I can make you satisfied in everything you do,
All your ‘secret wishes’ could right now be coming true,
Spend forever with my poison arms around you,
No one’s gonna fool around with us,
No one’s gonna fool around with us,
So glad to meet you,
Angeles…..

Every singly time I listen to it, I seem to melt into a puddle. Haha. But its a really beautiful song. Kudos to Elliot Smith who wrote this song and sang it. There’s no doubt at all that Elliot Smith did a fantastic job on this song. Jensen made a different approach and made the song into his own style, which was simply beautiful. Specially in this rainy weather, sometimes, its nice to just curl up under the comforters and replay this song on my iPod, with the rain pouring outside. *big hearts*

P.S : Did I mention that it sounded like Jensen Ackles was singing to ‘Angela’ (which is me)????? Lol! 😀

There’s Only One Man…

… who makes being ‘bow-legged’ so sexy!Mr. Jensen Ackles! Why am I not even surprised. Being slightly bow-legged, Jensen Ackles still looks every inch the hot hunk he is. As a matter of fact, he is the reason the frenzy trend of ‘being bow-legged can be sexy’ started on the net. So much so, this form was created.
20120510-132257.jpgAnd heck, if I had to fill in the form, this is exactly how I’d fill it in too! Lol!

Jensen Ackles. Making bow-legs look hot.*hearts*
