World Goth Day

May 22, 2017     Like This Post!

Happy World Goth Day! I didn’t even know this was a day that was “celebrated” but it makes me so happy that it is.

I don’t really have much photos from back in middle school/high school featuring my extreme black phases. Without me asking, people liked bringing it to my attention that I was more punk than goth, but my music taste was pretty broad where I dabbled in the goth genre.

In terms of music, goth spawned from the post-punk scene which is why some bands from the 70’s – 80’s have a slight punk sound. These days, the genre has evolved with electronics replacing brooding guitars, industrial sounds resembling machines, classical strings with opera-like voices, or basic rock mimicking it’s roots with and updated gloomy feeling.

Cool Links Via The Internet

April 24, 2017     Like This Post!

The Internet is full of so much greatness. I come across so many great links and videos that I don’t know what to do with – the type you just need to share. So here’s a small list of links and videos I recommend.

01. Saddest Calendar on the Internet: A Daily Tracker of Trump’s Damage – Pretty much self explanatory. This calendar keeps you up to date with the daily actions Trump has been making, which is frustrating but informative. It’s the kind of news we need to keep up with so we know what we’re fighting for. Everyday there seems to be something new we need to fight for. I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get exhausted.

02. This Guy Turns OCD Hoarding Into Amazing Photos – Photographer Jim Golden photographs objects into collections in such an organized fashion. I love flat lays that are so organized amazingly like this. I appreciate how he groups similar items together. It’s just so fun…and so damn well organized.

A Truly Fierce Entertainment List

January 30, 2017     Like This Post!

These days may be looking bad, especially while the protests are still alive. But sometimes we need to shut off at the end of the day and this entertainment list has been helping me shut off until the next day in which I find myself getting up and ready to fight. ✊

TV SERIES

Full Frontal With Samantha Bee
The first lady late night host has been on top of everything working with her diverse group of employees bringing to light issues happening in the country today. She’s covered the election and everything in between. She’s funny, and knows what’s up. Her episodes are split up all over Youtube making it easy to keep up with her and the extra web videos she posts in between episodes.

Trump Protest Songs

January 23, 2017     Like This Post!

As we know – it’s official. Trump is in and Obama is out. I just pictured Heidi Klum saying that. Any who, sad times are to come. I really do feel it.

So, it’s a thing we all know how art imitates and is influenced by real life. Musicians have always taken political stances and this time around is no different. There are so many songs dedicated to how people feel right now and so I gathered a list of some of those songs to make you feel like you’re not alone in this.

Seriously by This American Life, Sara Bareilles, and Leslie Odom, Jr.

Hallelujah Money by Gorillaz

Basic Bitch Of The 90’s Karaoke List

January 16, 2017     Like This Post!

So far I’ve made two karaoke lists, one of them being for the basic bitch in your life today, hah. I still feel so cruel writing that.

Anywho, if we jumped through a time warp and went out for a night of karaoke in the 90’s, what songs would be on your karaoke list? While brainstorming this list with Gabby, I had the VH1 tv show Hindsight in mind. The show took place in the 90’s and had quite an awesome playlist. I tried to channel that 90’s feel while thinking of songs for the basic bitch of the 90’s. And this is the karaoke list we came up with.

Rebel Grrrls In Movies

January 2, 2017     Like This Post!

2017 is here which I predict will be an important year for women and our voices. A lot happened last year which encouraged women to not sit down and stay quiet anymore. The times have changed too much for us to revert.

We’re all patiently waiting for January 20th to see how much is necessary for us all to speak up and defend our rights. There have been so many important historical women in history who would turn in their graves if they saw the state of our country today, and in their honor and our freedom, we need to stand up for women’s rights (as well as everyone who will be affected by the Trump presidency).

In a sea full of badass movie characters doing their thing, there are a smaller group of women who kick even more ass and take names. Here’s a tiny list of movies that feature inspiring women who don’t take any crap from anyone.

01. Savage Streets (1984)
The Linda Blair we know and love from The Exorcist plays a tough gal taking action to set out and get revenge for her family and friends affected by this violent gang in her city. She single handedly handles them in the way they deserve, and she really gives justice to bad ass chicks with street smarts.
What I learned: it isn’t such a bad idea to balance both book smarts and street smarts. Don’t be afraid to be tough.

02. The Craft (1996)
Put aside the magic aspect of the movie for a second. This movie was a great ode to misfits featuring a quartet with a powerful take on life, acknowledging their fears and bonding with each other showing their vulnerability. They shared their vulnerabilities and worked with each other to make themselves the best they could be. We all know the magic bit got out of hand at some point, but they were able to do something a lot of people don’t have the guts to do. They sought out ways to make themselves better people, and didn’t let anyone else put them down in the midst of it all. Despite the ending, they did okay.
What I learned: Do what you need to do to make yourself a better person without harming anyone else and ignore those who put you down. And maybe don’t mess with magic.

A Truly Nasty Entertainment List

December 12, 2016     Like This Post!

I’ve had the word nasty on my mind a bit too much lately. Thanks, Trump!
I composed a list of things I’ve been into that could be more on the nasty side than innocent. Lots of things I’d consider goodies here!

TV SERIES

Ash VS Evil Dead
An awesome revival of the hit cult horror movie series Evil Dead. After tuning in last year to the series premiere on Halloween night, I was immediately hooked. The gore and dialogue has such a cheesy feel, but it’s more of a modern spoof on the old movie series. I recommend this so much if you don’t mind some gore and guts. Bruce Campbell is such a hunk 😛 The cast is great, and Lucy Lawless is my badass homegirl. I’ve become addicted to this show.
