#musicmonday Super Into On It EP by Linkoban

If you haven’t heard of Linkoban, I wouldn’t blame you. She seems to have kept a relatively low profile since her first single, the super-catchy, super hyped up dancy beaty track “Like This” hit Youtube in February this year. In fact, at time of writing, she has less than 500 Twitter followers, less than 2,700 likes on Facebook, and less than five tracks out.

Her video for “Like This” is a frenzy of dark and colour and shaking, and the lyrics are super-catchy, “how can I be pretty when I shaking like this”, and “peel another pomelo, peel away your frown”, and it quickly became my most-played song on iTunes, as it’s one of them tracks you can sit there and listen on repeat. So, when her EP dropped, I was excited and a bit worried, what if she couldn’t live up to the high expectations I had set for her?

But, I needn’t have worried, title track “Super Into On It” is a 3 and a half minute frenzy of modern life, where the Danish rapper declares her love for the internet, and how she’s “super shallow if I do, super stale if I don’t, super complicated living, being on the scroll.” And then the video dropped, and it was one of the darkest, creepiest pop creations I had ever seen.  (And one of few videos I replayed loads…)

And the other tracks on the EP don’t disappoint either, with “Wipe Your Mouth” declaring that “I’m a copy of a clone, I’m original, made in China, the quality here, you don’t get it finer”, with the almost trademark heavy beat and full-on relentless musical frenzy.

The last, but not least track, “One Trick Pony”, is more of the same, but not in a bad way, in a super-catchy, why isn’t this in the charts? way, where she announces that “love is the colour of a runny nose-bleed”.

You can buy the EP, follow @linkoban and like her.

Ear Stretching Difficulties

So recently I got my ear pierced, so I can start stretching it, and after reading over my college’s extensive guidelines for uniform, they established that I can have a single stud. So, asking the piercing place, they suggested these pretty plain white plugs, with the black o-ring grips to keep them in place, and well, I’ve had difficulties stretching them, and taking them out/putting them back in.

And I was wondering whether it’s just me.

I’m on my third plug now, I’m not sure how big it is, as I got a pack of nine, taking me from 1.6mm (I think…), all the way up to 10mm.The piercing stud was a pain to get out, why was it so difficult, I have no idea why they make them damn things so hard to take off! But the plug went in easily enough, until I tried to get it through the back, and I’m not sure whether it’s a common thing, or whether I got it pierced slightly wonky, but I had to wiggle it slightly to the left? right? ur, towards my head, to get it in. Then I faced my second dilemma, the back hole was smaller than the front. I’m not sure how, but I had no problem getting it in, or all the way to the back, I could feel the plug at the back of the hole, but I really did have to force it through that last layer and out. And it bled a little bit, but nothing major.

After that, all was fine, and once I got used to the peculiarities of the wiggling to get through, I had no problems, and moving up to what I suspect was a 2mm plug was fine too, it went through the back no problems either, no blood, very little pain.

But this time when I upsized, not sure how big, but significantly bigger, it hurt quite a lot, and I had to numb the back with ice before I dared push it through, and it still hurts a little, a day later. I know I probably scaled it up too quickly, but I’m impatient, it didn’t really bleed, and it’s been fine apart from a slight pain. And now, thinking of my next upsizing, I’m dreading the part where I have to wiggle it around to get it through, because it hurts, and I’m wondering, surely there’s got to be a point where the hole is stretched big enough that I don’t need to wiggle it?

If any of my readers have any advide, tips, stories or personal experiences, I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!

Exam Results

As I’m sure you’re all aware, because I’ve mentioned it so many times, with my so regular updates and gripping articles, (okay, I’ll stop with sarcasm, I really do need to update more!), I’ve been studying my AS-levels this year. Well, I now have my results!

Art And Design – A

Chemistry – A

Physics – A

Mathematics – A

YES. I got straight A’s! I’m so happy, as I never thought I’d get an A in Art, and I was convinced that I’d have gotten a really low grade in Physics.

So, ur, that’s all I really have to say for now, but I’ll try to think of something extremely interesting to post next time.
