Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!


I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.

For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

day 19 – a song from your favorite album

This task is definitely giving me a headache, literally. I have a lot of favorite albums from different music genre, and it’s hard to choose only one among them. I’m in two minds whether to post this or that. I tried to make up my mind, and it seems like I can only shilly shally. So to stop myself from ranting about this simple stuff, I’ve decided to just post one song from each of my three favorite albums. I guess that would be much better.

The first song is from the album Old World Underground: Where are you? The song’s called On a Slow Night by one of the bands that I love because of the female vocalist – Metric. I like this song because it sounds smooth and pleasing despite the electric guitar accompaniment. It can also pass for a song that makes me fall asleep.

On a Slow Night – Metric

"True beautiful one
What have you gone and done
I can see all your moves are new
Tell me what did that salesman do to you

That catalogue replaced
The fine mind behind your face
No human trio can compete
When that three way mirror meets your eye

On a slow night
On a slow night..."

The second song is from the album Season of Poison from a synthpop/electronic band, Shiny Toy Guns. The song’s called Ghost Town. I love this album because almost all the tracks sound good. About Ghost Town, I like it mainly because it’s funky, and it’s not heavy. I can listen to it with family who’s not into rock music unlike me.

Ghost Town – Shiny Toy Guns

"Everyone living in ghost town
Everyone buried in waste land
We dont want to
We dont have to be like that
Living in ghost town
All the boys shout it out loud now
All the girls scream it out louder
We dont want to
We dont have to live like that
Oooooooh oooooohhhhhhhh

Hold me back you know were never gonna back down
Hold me back you know were never gonna back down
Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go of me
Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go let go of me..."

The third song is called Smokahontas by Attack! Attack! from their self-titled album. I just love all the songs from this band to beat! I still couldn’t get enough of their party-core music. For me, they’re the best modern band. I salute them for trying to experiment on their craft. That makes them the most popular band combining heavy metal and electronic. Long live rock!

Smokahontas – Attack! Attack!

"I'm alone in a crowded room

Conversations that I'll never remember
Trapped in a reality
That shouldn't be, that shouldn't be

Show me the way, allow me to see cause my heart is broken
Be my escape, allow me to hear with a word unspoken
Oh, I am separated from the one I was made to love

I'm pathetic and lost
They are so separating
I am no longer in control
You are upon me..."
