MUSIC VIBES: Childish Gambino

If you haven’t heard about this rap genius then where have you been?

Donald Glover, whose stage name is Childish Gambino, was destined to be part of the entertainment industry. Not only is he a musician, but on top of that, he can add actor, voice actor, writer, director, comedian, songwriter and record producer into the mix.

You might know this guy from not one, but two popular television shows: Community, where he plays the hilarious character of Troy Barnes at a community college. Definitely get onto checking the show out because it’s a must-watch! He also wrote a lot of 30 Rock and had occasional cameos on the show. Also hella hilarious and an awesome show if you need a quick pick-me-up.

If you can’t resist a sexy beat, then Childish Gambino delivers. If you wanna dance, head bang or hear some sick collabs with other sick artists, you’ll find a track that you’ll be playing on repeat for hours.

Speaking of collabs, he’s paired up with some talented musicians like Jhene Aiko, Chance The Rapper, Jaden Smith and Azealia Banks to name a few!

Currently on tour, Childish Gambino brings fans an aesthetic set-up on stage, an intense entrance and a big show. He owns the stage and fully engages with the crowd with his eyes wide open and his energetic vibes!

What to expect when Mercury will Retrograde

Mercury is retrograding again. In other words: Mercury is going cray again.

Actually it’s not, but from Earth, that’s what it looks like. From Earth, the planet Mercury (the closest planet to he Sun) looks like it’s moving backwards. You see, Mercury’s orbit around the Sun is a lot shorter than Earths, so it zooms past us and that’s when the Mercury Retrograde periods happen. From all this, Mercury creates enough turbulence and disruption when it retrogrades that it affects what we humans feel and our everyday lives on Earth – pretty interesting stuff!

Right now, we’re in the middle of one of Mercury’s periods of retrograde: September 15 – October 9, 2015.

You might have already experienced some of the effects caused by Mercury, but here’s more of what to expect from this retrograde!

Plans may take an unexpected turn
Plan for your plans to go pear-shaped. You might even find yourself planning for a few friends to get together for a few drinks only to find out that they’ll all cancel at the last minute. Don’t expect a lot of organized events to go as perfectly as you planned!

Be flexible with time
Because you never know how your plans are going to pan out during the Mercury Retrograde period, you should be flexible with time. Take extra care and take into consideration all the things that could be in your path: traffic, delayed flights, your car breaking down, losing your train ticket – anything could happen!

Be prepared for people in angry moods
Especially people who work in Transport, Marketing, Writing, Publishing, Sales and Public Relations. These are the industries that Mercury has control over. You may notice their moods changing, and not in a good way, so be extra super nice to people who work in these professions.

Don’t make big, final decisions
During this time, we often don’t gather all the facts and the info that we need, so basically Mercury makes us go a tiny bit whack with our decisions. Avoid making big long-term decisions to be on the safe side!

Have time for personal reflection
Experts say that the periods where Mercury is in Retrograde is the best time to stop, think and re-direct our energies in a more productive and positive way. We’re often rushing through life without giving everything our full attention, so during this retrograde, Mercury will help us to find closure to certain things in our lives.

There’s no better way to spend some lazy time than to be on your sofa, all rugged up and sipping on your favorite hot drink. Now add some good films to that mix and you’ve got one snug Fall season to look forward to.

If you’re someone who takes at least 2 hours trying to decide on what movie to watch, I’ve got a few suggestions that will surely narrow down your search. Fall is all about the days being unpredictable and nature becoming incredibly colorful, so you’ll find this sort of vibe with these 4 films.

What’s your go-to Fall film?

Pride Based on an inspirational true story, this is one irresistible film that you can’t look past.

The Grand Budapest Hotel If you’re into some dark humor, this one’s for you. Set in a fictional Central European state, this Wes Anderson film will spark some creativity in you with his amazing use of unique colors throughout the film.

When Harry Met Sally Hilarious, classic and vibrant. Every film gal needs to watch this!

500 Days Of Summer A classic romantic comedy that literally everyone has to see at least once in their life. It even ends off with a cheeky little segway from Summer to Autumn…
