A Truly Saucy Entertainment List

September 25, 2017     Like This Post!

Lately, tv has been consuming a lot of my time. I feel like everyone who knows me, knows that I’m cool with that. This time around for this list, I’ve got new music and tv series to add to this list. Very reflective of my life these days.

TV/MOVIES

Sweet/Vicious
Being an original MTV series, I was a little skeptical that this would be a good show, but it covers the tough subject of rape on the college campus and vigilante justice – something that isn’t talked about on tv. Well, maybe the occasional Law & Order episode, but that’s pretty much it. I decided to give this show a watch and I ended up binge watching the entire series in one day. Oops! It was pretty great; I got really into the double lives the main characters were playing, but unfortunately, it didn’t make it past one season. The internet is frustrated about MTV’s decision so hopefully some other platform will give the series a chance. Anyone…? Netflix…?

Quirky Secretaries In Entertainment

July 17, 2017     Like This Post!

There’s this repetitive idea it seems that when people write scripts for film or television, they go with this office setting that has the typical characters such as the uptight boss, and the quirky secretary. At this point, it’s predictable. Not that it could be a bad thing, but it’d be nice to see quirky female boss ladies? Hmm.

But at the same time, it’s not so far away from real life because I’ve seen this a lot. The receptionist from my pediatrician from back in the day was wacky. She had frizzy red hair, bright blue eyeshadow, and red lipstick. At my current job, the secretary for the big boss has a short black bob, wears Cleopatra makeup, and all sorts of patterns that clash. I actually love this, but like I said, it’d be awesome to see a boss lady like this.

It made me think of movies and tv shows I’ve watched. The quirky secretaries: it’s a thing.

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.

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. ✊

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
