Happy Wednesday everyone! A lot of strange things exist on the Internet, and I have seen something a little odd these past two days. Since yesterday afternoon, I have seen two articles about people who impersonate mermaids. Totally casual.
I saw the first article about real-life mermaids yesterday on Yahoo.com. A woman named Linden Wolbert works as a mermaid at various parties and charity events, and can even hold her breath for up to 5 minutes (she used to be a freediver). While “mermaiding” as a job might seem justifiable, Eric Ducharme dons a mermaid tale for fun.
Wolbert in action.
I saw the article about Ducharme this afternoon, and after seeing my second mermaid article in two days, I thought this was too strange to ignore. Ducharme can also hold his breath for minutes at a time, but he “mermaids” for fun. When I was younger, I used to lay on my bedroom floor with a pillowcase around my legs and pretend that I had a mermaid tail, so I’m not gonna say that I wouldn’t want to swim around with a sparkly tail on in my spare time…
Have a wonderful rest of the week and thanks for reading
Happy Music Monday, all! I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter weekend and is ready to finish the semester strong! Only four weeks left. Yikes.
Today, I would like to talk about Ceour de pirate. Coeur de pirate (her real name is Béatrice Martin) is a Canadian singer and songwriter. She sings almost all of her songs in French, but she does have a few English songs. She released a song in English called “One for Me” under the name Pearls, and also did a sick cover of “Wicked Games” by The Weekend.
Her cover of “Wicked Games” is one of my favorite songs because it is far better than the original. Her voice is so pure sounding, and it is a little chilling and creepy. Unfortunately, the song drops the f-bomb throughout, so I can’t post the video on here, but I will post a link to it below!
Since I loved “Wicked Games” so much when I heard it, I looked up some other songs by her, but they are all in French so I don’t understand what she is saying. Fortunately, she is rumored to be working on some English music, so I can love her even more once it is released.
Here’s the link to “Wicked Games.” Seriously, check it out. Have a great week, and thanks for reading
“One for Me”
