Alex Pall, Y’all!!!

The Chainsmokers. Need I say more? For the past several years this DJ duo has been topping the Billboard charts with hits like “Closer” and “Something Just Like This”. 2018 saw the release of “Sick Boy” which is already nearing 200 million views on YouTube.

In a 2016 interview with Mathias Rosenzweig from Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine, Alex Pall said, “For us, it’s all about being on the forefront of pushing new boundaries and giving people new experiences.” He also talked about how he and his now musical counterpart, Andrew Taggart, met and got the ball rolling. Pall said, “We didn’t want to treat it like a job, but we knew we had a lot to learn and a lot of ground to cover.” It’s said that if you treat something like a hobby, that’s all it will ever be. So, kudos to Pall and Taggart for having the brass nuggets to take it to the next level. I, for one, am glad the did!

Since that interview I think they have done just that. No sophomore slump from these boys (Sick Boys!?)!!! Their debut studio album, Memories…Do Not Open was a huge success, topping the Billboard 200 at its release. The songs: “Paris”, “Something Just Like This” found the most success from the album.

They definitely are on the forefront of music’s evolution. Electronic music is in, and I don’t think it’s going anywhere. Especially with Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart producing such masterful compositions.

Sick Boy definitely gave listeners a glimpse of another layer of the Chainsmokers. With a darker melody and overall feel of the song they have definitely pushed the boundaries of their artistry, which, I think, is a very good thing.

From “#Selfie” to “Sick Boy”, The Chainsmokers have produced some great songs over the past several years. Without a doubt, we can expect more sweet, sweet music from The Chainsmokers in the near and distant future.

Kim Dao Q and A With Eric

Kim Dao and her boyfriend Eric have been together for six years as of September 30, 2016. The couple met at a Japanese club in college. Kim Dao is five years her boyfriend’s junior. They are both Asians from Australia. We do not know his last name. This Q and A is about Kim Dao and her six year long distance relationship. Even though she has been in Japan for about a year, and he is in Australia, they talk on the phone every evening and sometimes they Skype. There is only one hour difference that separates Japan and Australia. Kim Doa quit her job in Australia because she always wanted to live in Japan before she gets married. This Q and A video was recorded in Singapore when the couple reunited after a five month separation. Despite this long courtship, Kim Dao hopes that in 10 years they will be married with three dogs and some kids. She hopes she is married to her current boyfriend. Eric wants to start with one dog and see what happens after that.


Kim Dao likes that her boyfriend Eric is trustworthy, a nice person who is good to her. He also is understanding of her desire to live in Japan for awhile and is certainly accommodating when it comes to their long distance relationship. He respects that Kim Dao is a young woman with goals. At 25, she knows what she wants to do with her life. She’s independent and very sweet.
