Bruno Mars has just debuted his new music video for his catchy single, “Treasure,” and it’s booming with bell bottoms, gritty Soul Train camera angles, and it screams the 70s.
The 70s styling reminds me of Duck Sauce’s “Anyway” music video, but of course, the music is different. Both are great music videos that pay homage to the 70s.
As a big fan of Bruno Mars, I must say that he can do no wrong in my eyes. He is the epitome of musicianship, and the quality of his music is impeccable. Seriously, how could you hate Mr.Mars?

Folks have been telling me for a long time that I should start some sort of monthly, better yet, weekly podcast that has a wide range of house music. We’ll, you’ve spoken, I’ve listened, and with major support from DJ Johnny Fontana, ThinkSoul25 now has a weekly podcast!
Inspired by the love of house, Johnny Fontana has spent over a decade producing and spinning house music. He’s held residency at Miami’s globally recognized Segafredo Café, he’s played in Japan, Ibiza, and he’s played alongside Patrick M (Club Space Miami, Johnny Ramire, Dj Brun, Copyright, Mikkel Danker AKA Soulscience, Jerry Ropero, Junior Jack, JoJo Flores (Gotsoul Miami), and so many more!
Recently relocating to Washington, DC area, Johnny has teamed up with me to bring you the best in deep, soulful, funky, afro, and latin house music.
Every Tuesday a new podcast will be upload to the official ThinkSoul25 Radio soundcloud page. Each week will be based upon a theme, a feeling, and I’ll leave it up to Johnny to work his magic and bring you the best house music!
So, shall we get things started? Season 1 of ThinkSoul25 shall now commence!
Everyone who knows me (personally and online) is aware that I’m a huge fan of Wonder Woman. Out of the things I’m obssessed with (house music and coffee,) my love for Wonder Woman is something that I doubt will ever go away. I’ve been a fan since I was a little girl. My mom showed me the series with Lynda Carter, the original comics, and always celebrated my height, so since then, considering I’m 6ft tall, I’ve always admired the Amazon.
Wonder Woman is the epitome of awesome. And yesterday I spent a few hours watching The Justice League animated series on Netflix and was just reminded how great she is. With that being in mind, I’d love to share with you some of my favorite Wonder Woman covers and illustrations. Interestingly enough, I have yet to draw my own depiction of her, but if I did it would be cool to make her brown skin. But I’m saving that “ethnic” touch for my cosplay as Wonder Woman. Stay tuned for that…
Enjoy the pictures! If you want to talk more about Wonder Woman, feel free to rant away or hit me up on Twitter @thinksoul25 or Facebook @ www.facebook.com/Jazei25
Get in the know about Yours Truly and Adidas Originals new series, Songs From Scratch. Similar, but slightly different from Converse’s music series, Songs From Scratch “documents and delivers new songs from scratch. Each song is a result of a curated collaboration between artists whose craft and passion inspire action.”
Now that you’re in the know, get lost in this beautiful new track “Painted Faces.” From the creative production of Jacques Green and the heaven-like vocals of Tinashe, “Painted Faces” is an absolutely stunning releases that takes you to new heights.
Give the track a spin…again, again, and again. And be sure to watch the making of “Painted Faces.” That’s right, the Songs From Scratch series also includes videos that show the creative process from start to finish. This truly is a song from scratch.
One of my favorite productions duos from the UK goes by the name of Bondax. Basically, these two teenage DJs/Producers from Lancaster, Britain go by the name Bondax and have pumped up some amazing production within the past year. Most notable, their track “Gold” has caused many eargasms….
“Gold” is a delicious track that is truly the midas touch, and the official music video to match has just been released. But if you heard The Magician’s Magic Tape 30, then you might have also had a chance to vibe to Moon Boots remix.
I thought the original “Gold” was awesome, but the remix by Moon Boots is phenomenal. I absolutely love both, but I really am enjoying dancing to the Moon Boots remix of Bondax’s lovely hit, “Gold.” In the tradition of most Moon Boots remixes, it’s a little pop-ish but still electro. He knows how to take a track and make it really fun, sort of like a trip to another world…which is why you need Moon Boots for an atmospheric journey.
Aside from the 80s, the 90s was the best! Why? Because hip-hop was golden, fashion was bright, video games were simple graphics yet confusing puzzles, television shows were spectacularly awesome, and playing with toys was actually fun. You didn’t even need video games, you could play with a handful of toys and be quite alright. Technology wasn’t necessary and of course social media wasn’t really around, so you actually had time to bond and make true friends.
The 90s will forever and always be the best time in history, and perhaps I’m biased since I was born in 91, but I’m just saying…the 90s rule. And I’m not the only one who thinks so, Internet Explorer agrees.
If you’re in the mood for some nostalgia, then the new IE commercial will be right up your alley. But of course, if you want something more hype and fresh, you can always watch the IE commercial featuring Alex Clare’s “Too Close.” Dubstep wasn’t big in the 90s, so you won’t find it in this new commercial “Child of the 90s.”
