  1. In the 90s we saw whitney mature, vocally and artistcally. She still sang about love, but also about children and world peace and of course, her love for God. Here, im gonna count her top 10 songs from the decade that gave us so many of her best songs.

    1.   I Have Nothing- Every performance of this song brings me chills. She sounded soft and powerful, mature and novice. She sang this song with all she had and that what made it the classic it is.
    2. I Will Always Love You- The most inspiring song sang by a female vocalist, Whitney set the benchmark even higher with this materpiece. She owned this song just as much as Dolly did. 
    3.  Its Not Right But Its Okay- Its not right but ist okay, its her best bop anyway. Some real sass, let us know how Whitney's marriage was going. Just a bit.
    4. Im Every Woman- I really love this song, i know all the words. Whitney was the only one who could do a Chaka song justice
    5.  My Love is Your Love- I love this songs. She sounded relaxed and happy in the recording and it reminds us that lve between two people of a group of people can be unbreakable- in a way only Whitney could say.
    6.  Im Your Baby Tonight- A bop that had amazing visuals, Whitney's evolution had taken place in my opinion
    7.  Run to You- This would have been a hit if the Bodyguard hadnt been selling as well as it did. She shattered the world with these vocals she was so full. She made even a song about being lonely sound great.
    8.  All the Man That I Need- She once more took the art of singing to another level with another vocal gymnastic of a song. She had so much feeling with this, which only intensified when she sang it live.
    9.  Exhale(Shoop Shoop)- A calm song with a new, mature Whitney. Slay queen.
    10. Heartbreak Hotel- When R&B's greatest singers come together to make a masterpiece like that, its isnt a small thing and the charts showed that.
  2. I haven't talked about this much before, but after everything that's been going on in the news I feel compelled to share my own story. I want to preface this by saying that it isn't my intention to derail the #MeToo movement, which is primarily about abuse and harassment perpetrated by men and women's solidarity and I hope that this doesn't come off as whataboutism.

     

    I was sitting in chorus class in eighth grade. At this point in my education all of my friends had dropped out of chorus, so I was the last one left and I was pretty much a loner in there. In between songs, our teacher took a break and let the class talk to their friends for a few minutes. This girl who had previously always winked at me and brushed up against me creepily approached me, and started by touching my leg and then began working her way up until she was in my lap and touching my dick through my pants and humping me. She was saying all kinds of perverted things and gave me this evil look in her eye which told me that she knew exactly what she was doing and she was going to get away with it, and I tried to fight her off (slapping her and trying to throw her off of myself) but she wouldn't let go and kept laughing. She even tried to take off my pants. Almost everyone else was busy doing their own thing and talking to their friends so they didn't even notice, except for a few people who were watching. They thought it was funny and didn't even try to help me. The part that hurt the most was that it was in broad daylight in a room full of people, and hardly anyone noticed and none of those who did cared or asked if I was okay.

     Our chorus class was a split block with a lunch break in between, so I had lunch at the same time as this girl and she followed me around for the next few days and tried to make me feel uncomfortable. It seemed like she was everywhere I looked, with those creepy eyes and that smile. She even said a few times that she had a surprise for me (thank god I never found out what it was). I ended up staying a few minutes after class one day and telling our teacher that this girl kept following me, and even though I was trying to keep it together I ended up crying but didn't reveal what really happened. My teacher could tell that there were more details I wasn't sharing with her but she didn't ask any questions. I ended up quitting chorus later that week because I "wasn't interested anymore," even though I loved to sing. I told my friends, my family, my teacher, and my guidance counselor the same thing and no one questioned it.

    There were a few reasons why I never said anything. First of all, this girl was a special needs student so I thought people would excuse it by saying she didn't know any better and she didn't know what she was doing...which is complete bullshit, because I saw it in her eyes. She was one hundred percent aware of what was going on and lived for the fact that she made me feel embarrassed and powerless and would get away with it because she wouldn't be held accountable even if I were to say something. Also, male victims of sexual harassment tend to face ridicule and are made fun of for not wanting it. They're told that they must be gay for not wanting to get laid, and not that being gay is a bad thing but it's not a good label to have in middle school where kids will bully you for it. People already teased me for being fruity, and coming forward with this just would have made it worse. I also felt like what happened "wasn't bad enough," because I never got drugged and raped or anything like that. I've never called it assault and I've always considered it harassment, but truthfully I don't know where one draws the line. Even the online friends I've confided in about this thought the mental image of a special needs girl humping me in the middle of chorus class was funny and didn't seem too concerned about how I felt or thought it was that serious. And lastly, there were rumors that she herself was being raped by her grandfather and I didn't want her to get in trouble if she might have been an abuse victim herself.

     

    The next time, I was 16 and working at my first job. It was at an amusement park and I operated kiddie rides. There were two new employees one day, and they set off my gaydar. They were in their early/mid 20s, and after their very first shift the taller, younger one came up behind me while I was clocking out for the day and whispered "Hey Hermione" right in my ear in this flop trying-to-be-seductive-but-coming-off-as-extremely-creepy deep voice. I probably jumped up several inches because it completely took me by surprise. When I did, I saw that he was winking. I replied "Hi" in a shaky voice because saying hi back is my natural reflex and then I bolted out of there. Once again, this was in a room full of people and nobody noticed.

    I later started hearing rumors that they lived together and were secretly engaged, and even though they didn't talk about their relationship at work it was obvious that they were a couple. Since they ran the adult rides I barely saw them except for pre and post-shift (when they always stared at me, with looks I couldn't tell were dirty or aroused), until one day when my assigned ride was on the border between the kiddie and adult rides. The shorter, older one was operating the one right next to me, and after an hour of no interactions he walked over to the fence between our rides when our side of the park was empty and we had no customers. This was about two months after they started working there, and I was now newly 17. Between customers he would come over and ask me questions like how old I was, what school I went to, what some of my hobbies were, and finally officially introduced himself. We gossiped a little bit about the place too, and he told me that he trained our manager on his very first ride years ago and decided to come back this year since he moved back to the area.

    The questions eventually turned to my sexuality, which were obviously making me uncomfortable especially since he had asked my age and knew I was a minor. The age of consent is 17 here, but I still felt like it was inappropriate for this 23 year old man I barely knew to be asking me this stuff especially since I was still in high school and looked like a little boy. He also said that all the other guys who worked there were ugly, including my friends, and that I was the only cute one. He kept leaving and going to the fence on the other side of his ride where his boyfriend was working (the one who whispered in my ear), and I got the feeling he was reporting my answers back to him and they were planning something. They kept looking over at me with lust in their eyes. Eventually he asked if I would want to come home with them after work and hang out (presumably for a threesome), and my heart started racing. I said no and he looked really offended and then asked why, and I said, with my voice shaking, "Don't you think I'm too young to be hanging out with you guys?" and he didn't really say anything else. Another one of my coworkers eventually came over to my ride while the guy was busy, and I told her everything while holding back tears. She wasn't that busy that day so she agreed to stay with me for the rest of my shift, because I knew he wouldn't try to talk to me again if someone else was there to hear it.

    I wrote an email to our boss saying what happened, but I never had the courage to send it. It sat in my drafts for a few weeks, and I finally decided against it and deleted it. 17 is the age of consent so flirting with me was technically legal even if I was still a minor, and they backed off once I wasn't interested. Not to mention that I doubted my managers would even believe my story, since he had history with them and I was just a kid at my first job. I told my coworkers and it turned into the hot gossip at work (and again, treated like a joke rather than something that actually messed with me) but it never made its way to the managers, and a year later I found out that they tried the same thing with my friend and even told him that he was the only cute one and the rest of us were ugly. I told him what happened at the time, but he never confessed that they tried hooking up with him too until a text much later on. Apparently they messaged him on Facebook too, and he was still 16 at the time. We walked everywhere together at work after that, because we were both afraid of being alone around these guys. The worst part of this story is that I have the older guy's Twitter, and around the Kesha trial he was tweeting all of this stuff about how horrible Dr. Luke is despite being creepy and preying on underage boys himself. I never told my family about this because they're pretty homophobic, and I didn't want it to add to their negative image of gay people.

     

    I still know all three of their names, both the girl from middle school and the gay couple from my old job, and I could expose them if I wanted but I have this weird desire to protect them from the consequences for some reason even though they deserve it. I'm fine now and don't have any long-term issues from either instance, but it sucks so much that I'm made to feel like I'm overreacting for this stuff because it's "not as bad" as other cases people have spoken up about. Whenever I think about them I tend to second-guess myself and wonder if my feelings are justified and that I'm not just being oversensitive or a drama queen. Anyway, I know this doesn't really have an inspiring message but I just needed to get it out because I'm sick of bottling it up. I don't need your pity nor your assessment of whether this was "real" sexual harassment.

    Writing a toy review was something I always wanted to try, so this is something I'm doing more for myself rather than something I think anyone here will have a great interest in jj2 But here we go...

     

    WONDER WOMAN

     

    y435lq4.jpg

     

    This one is OK, certainly a better likeness of Gal Gadot than the BvS version (which was a total butterface and barely even looks like a woman, frankly), but on the other hand the paint apps are really inconsistent - the skin tone on her legs, her chest and her face/arms are all totally different, and now her neck looks way too thick for her body. I do love that they made her lasso a detachable accessory instead of just a molded-on part of her belt, though. I think I still prefer the BvS equivalent overall, but here they are together for comparison. 

     

    bIidlZx.jpg

     

    BATMAN

     

    WOPXy11.jpg

     

    This one I really like. I appreciate that Mattel went with Batman's alternate "tactical" suit instead of just the same thing from BvS again (which they did do for the Suicide Squad line and got a lot of shit for, so way to learn!). All his new gear is nicely molded, but I'm not crazy about the fact that they went with a cheap cloth cape instead of rubber this time around. And on the likeness, I don't think it looks explicitly unlike Ben Affleck, but it could pretty much be anybody. It's slightly better than the BvS version (which this mold is clearly based on) in that regard, and probably actually a bit worse than the Daredevil toy from well over ten years ago rip2 

     

    EUx8bAI.jpg

     

    AQUAMAN

     

    u5Gfbi5.jpg

     

    The one on the left being the new version and the right being BvS, I definitely prefer the latter. Both look decently like Jason Momoa, but I like the tattooed paint apps and color scheme of the BvS version better, and the articulation isn't as stiff. The worst thing about the new one is his right hand, which is way too loose and it takes some doing to get the trident in his hand in any effective way.

     

    OfIq0vE.jpg

     

    THE FLASH

     

    mU2xie2.jpg

     

    This one is definitely my favorite in this whole line. Completely new mold, solid likeness of Ezra Miller, articulation isn't stiff. Good job, Mattel!

     

    CYBORG

     

     TzWJrT8.jpg

     

    Well, I don't know that this one looks especially like Ray Fisher (not that his star has risen enough for him to be recognizable yet anyway), but along with the Flash I think it has the best articulation out of any of the figures in this line. Not a critique of the toy really, but I don't really like how much of his body is robotic rip2 I mean, he's supposed to be a cyborg, not pretty much a robot with a 60% flesh face. Obviously though, that flaw lies with the film's costume designers. He also has an alternate hand, or rather a sonic cannon, which is pretty cool.

     

     

    v6in26m.jpg

     

    SUPERMAN

     

    This one is the absolute worst rip2 And that sucks considering Superman is one of my favorite characters. Like...just look at this likeness...

     

    H5hjJVz.jpg

     

    He looks NOTHING like Henry Cavill, and what's with the creepy glass eyes? I don't even know how they managed to make it this much worse than the BvS version; with the terrible face and the cheap cape, it isn't even close. And worst of all, my toy has TWO RIGHT HANDS! What the fuck, man...?

     

    Mj0hgUQ.jpg

     

    Here's the way better BvS version.

     

    398S7y6.jpg

     

    STEPPENWOLF

     

    QYdH45c.jpg

     

    This one is the build-a-figure, and...it's OK. Certainly isn't the worst one Mattel has ever done, and it's a logical character choice. He's detailed nicely enough and I like his axe, but he suffers from the worst stiffness of any of them; when I tried to move his arm at all after putting it on, I thought I was gonna break the fucking thing...

  3. My Unread Books Challenge

     

    Okay, so I'm not sure how many people are actually interested in reading this, but the thing is, I am a bookworm. Other thing is, I love to collect books and Donald Duck Pockets (<is what they're called here in Holland)

    I count a total of 224 books and 116 pockets in my collection.
    Problem is, I often buy new books, instead of first reading a descent amount of the books that I currently already own. And visiting the library from time to time doesn't really help with that. So right now, I kinda wanna start my own project of reading more of my own books than purchasing them. 

    Right now I haven't read 80 of the books that I own. fall1 LORD, HELP ME!

    It's really confronting to actually see those numbers. I never thought it would be that much, dear Jesus!

    Out of my Donald Duck Collection I've only read 41 pockets out of the 116. 

    Who's interested to follow the progress I'm gonna (try) to make? 

    Disclaimer: I see a ton of books in my collection that I bought when I still went to High School and I actually don't really feel that much of a desire to pick them up and actually read them, but I can't deal with getting rid of them or anything either. I'm already procrastinating. 

     

    P.S. If you wish to be removed from any future taglists, please let me know!

     

  4. Hello, Little Luranti

    tumblr_oxcs26Ydq71wc2mpoo5_400.gif

     

    Today, the Pokemon company revealed another trailer for Ultra Sun and Moon. It basically just recaps - and shows in more depth - the new information revealed in Corocoro's leak a few days ago, but since we haven't yet talked about that, have a look below and then see me after the jump! (The Hi Jump... Kick)

     

    Ok, so there's only a little bit to talk about here. Firstly, Necrozma's new forms are confirmed - as leaked - to be the same typings as Solgaleo and Lunala were. However, each form gains the new move Photon Geyser. This move will be either special or physical depending on which of the two is your highest stat. In addition the necrotwins get their own Z-Moves that go off of Sunsteel Strike and Moongeist Beam. These are Searing Sunraze Smash and Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom. These moves do massive damage and also keep the base ability of the move; ignoring and suppressing the abilities of the target Pokemon!

     

    tumblr_ohz912cCes1rsrk2xo2_500.gif

     

    Next up; this little guy returns; the Rotomdex and brings even more features this time. You can now bond with Rotom by answering his questions. His new power; the Roto Loto, allows you to spin his lottery for the chance of gaining some new Rotom Powers. These powers are like O-Powers from Gen Six but seem to be greatly improved with the chances of getting higher level wild Pokemon as well as many of the other returning O-Powers. Finally, Rotom allows you to use two Z-Moves in battle now... but it's expected this is just in-game. A true confirmation will likely be revealed later on. 

     

    tumblr_oxcrmi8bTH1v68t0mo2_540.gif

     

    Ok, so that's it for now. There's only so much they can show in Corocoro's limited pages. I feel like the next trailer will have a pretty big reveal and it will come either next Thursday or the one after. And of course, I'll be here to update you all again. Bye!

    Completely unrelated to the entry btw, I just love Jeongyeon with all of my heart and wanted a cute gif to start with.

    To cut straight to the point, for the next 31 days I'll be updating this with one new song, not entirely sure why I'm doing this, perhaps just for the kiis of my few months older self finding this and cackling at my current taste, whatever. I'll try to keep it at least half Western/non-Asian so no need to worry about finding exclusively generic, manufactured music you cannot understand here. Hope someone reads it and maybe finds something for themselves too. Also this could probably be posted in Music Mania but I don't want to pollute other sections, this blog is called unwanted opinions trademark sign for a reason.

    Day 1: Kanye West - Guilt Trip // One of Ye's most underrated songs and quite possibly top 5 in his entire discography for me. Immaculate production and the mysterious, heavily edited yet enticing chorus are what grabbed my attention at first and after 4 years I still find them just as thrilling and exciting.

    Day 2: Prince - Lovesexy (starts at 25:14 because he's extra and "artistic vision!!1") // Despite not being hailed as a masterpiece quite as much as Purple Rain or Sign o' the Times, Lovesexy is just as good as its predecessors. It's Prince at the end of his creativity peak and he ended it with a bang - a record that's fun, carefree, sensual but also varied and ambitious. Its title track embodies all that - and more - in a perfect way.

    Day 3: Kelela - LMK // The entire album is great (stream here or, even better, buy there) but nothing has quite topped this for me, def top 10 songs of the year material.

    Day 4: (BP) Rania - Style // Classy... sexy... crazy COUTURE...

    Day 5: St. Vincent - Los Ageless // Her album is sahfjajas amazing and while the closer is probably currently my favourite, I just cannot stop replaying this pre-release single.

    Day 6: Grizzly Bear - Morning Sound // Can't think of anything to say but I really love this sing xoxo.

    Day 7: The National - Abel // As much as I like their recent album, it doesn't have a song which would live up to their greatest achievements, such as this one.

    Day 8: Taemin - Move // At first listen this came off as really stale and uninteresting to me but started working in the context of the more laid back, subtle album. Unlike a lot of his previous songs, whether solo or as a part of SHINee, it doesn't pop off instantly and instead creeps up on the listener more with each repetiton of the chorus.

    Day 9: DIA - My Friend's Boyfriend // After Eunice threw the first brick at Stonewall, she rode her minion to the studio to record this LGBT anthem, quite a productive day for her, I'd say.

    Day 10: A.C.E - Callin' // This is esentially the exact same song as their last comeback Cactus, only this time they actually had some budget for the music video and didn't do a gaybait. Normally I'd be mad but Cactus was such an excellent track that for once I don't mind it.

    The Bodyguard (1992)

    Starring Kevin Costner & Whitney Houston
    Directed by Mick Jackson
    Written by Lawrence Kasdan

     

    So lately I’ve been familiarizing myself with some of Whitney Houston’s music, and after listening to her music from the The Bodyguard I decided to actually try watching the movie. I had quite a few thoughts about it while watching it so here’s a very sloppy review of 1992’s The Bodyguard!

     

    Because people are always obsessed with how successful (or unsuccessful) pop girls are at acting, that will be the first thing I want to talk about. Overall, Whitney did really well. I feel like she added some personality to the character, even though I feel like she was playing just a slightly different version of herself. That being said, the script didn’t give her much to do, and the film didn’t really challenge anyone’s acting abilities, in my opinion. There aren’t too many high emotional moments for the actors.

     

    As a film itself, it isn’t all that impressive. Most of the time the mood and tone of it all felt very flat. Like I said, there aren’t really any high emotional moments, and the entire premise just seemed to be played a little too safe. I think because the entire plot of the film is about a pop star being both followed by a pervy stalker and is being hunted by a hit man, it could have been amped up a bit and made more gritty. I know this is technically a Romance, but even that aspect wasn’t pulled off well. It doesn’t help that the whole film is absolutely ordinary to look at. The cinematography was balls, and it had that typical early 90s grain feel to it, which works for some genres, but just makes this look a bit shoddy.

     

    Honestly the entire film was rather boring – with one of the reasons being that Kevin Costner is the most uninteresting screen presence ever. But I’ll get to that in a bit.

     

    I’m going to start running through some of the scenes and plot points that I noted – mostly stuff that irked me – so minor SPOILERS ahead.

     

    Whitney Houston plays a pop star/celebrity by the name of Rachel Marron, which is by far the dullest name for a star. Kevin Costner’s character’s name is Frank Farmer, which is dumb so I’m just going to refer to him as Kevin Coster. But I digress. One of the main issues for me about Rachel is that there is hardly any build up of character. It’s never really established if she’s both a pop singer and an actress. It seems like acting is her main schtick, since half the songs she sings in the movie are related to a fictional movie-within-the-movie; but she also just sings "Run To You", which Kevin Costner watches the music video of in the film. Her entire celebrity just isn’t explained. I feel like she’s supposed to be like, the biggest star in the world, but I couldn’t really feel it, tbh. She’s also a mother to the worst actor in the film a little boy, yet it’s never established or even inquired as to who the father is, which I feel like is a bit of information that would eventually slip at some point. Rachel just isn’t a fleshed out character.

     

    At the beginning of the film, Kevin Costner is hired as Rachel’s bodyguard and drives to the gate of her mansion. Her doorman is literally an imbecile and everyone is so messy and inattentive I’m surprised she isn’t dead yet. All of her intercoms/doorbells look like garbage, too. Isn’t she supposed to be famous? Y'know, with money? When Kevin Costner arrives they’re rehearsing for a music video – in her house, which is ridiculous. Rachel’s initial reaction to him is one of intrigue, although she doesn’t really seem to like him all that much when his bodyguarding gets in her way and annoys her. While performing at a club, she gets knocked off the stage and the crowd attempts to crowd-surf her without consent (IN WHAT UNIVERSE would a famous artist of this caliber have such shit management & security team) and after Kevin Costner pulls her out and drives her away, she asks him out the very next day. This man is so uninteresting and plain-looking. His main beverage of choice is orange juice – like, at every hour of the day, he wants orange juice. This guy is such a dweeb, I am not convinced Rachel would be into him. Whose type is “Kevin Costner” anyway? Ech.

     

    Anyway, he takes her on a date to see fucking Yojimbo and they have a drink at a country bar. (Actually, he has one beer and she has water. Yawn.) I actually enjoyed this scene a bit, cause it’s about the only real moment where they have some time to build chemistry. They dance to some 99 cent version of "I Will Always Love You" – did they even try to get Dolly’s version? – and they go back to Kevin Costner’s basement house or whatever. Rachel swings around a blatant phallic symbol katana like a fucking idiot, and they have sex. Kevin Costner is supposed to be an uptight, “don’t mix work with pleasure” guy, but after minimal flirtation he just gives in and swirls it up. What a weak bastard. He doesn’t even try. And through all this I still don’t see why she likes this guy. At all. And then they get into a fight, and at a huge party later on, she flirts with the ugliest guy to try and get back at him. They couldn’t find a more appealing person? Holy shit.

     

    Some more shit happens. Whitney is absolutely terrible at lip-syncing her songs and Kevin Costner drinks more damn orange juice. (this is such a stupid quirk that is never explained)

     

    This movie is absolute garbage at trying to recreate Hollywood. All of the other Best Actress nominees look like plain housewives, and the actual Oscars ceremony is lowkey shitty and messy. So many things just didn’t make sense to me. Rachel is there because she’s nominated for Best Actress (for what I’m assuming is a movie called "I Have Nothing") But, the titular song is also nominated for Best Song. Except, some Rachel wannabe performs it during the ceremony while she’s backstage – which make no goddamn sense because if they already had Rachel there they would have taken the opportunity to have her sing it. It’s her song after all. And then Rachel also announces the Best Song award, and I’m quite certain the Oscars would not put a singer of one of the Best Song nominees as the announcer.

     

    There also seems to be a glaring continuity issue. Early in the film, I’m quite certain it is established that Rachel is up for the Academy Award for Best Actress for her part in "I Have Nothing". The announcement is shown on TV while she sings the titular song. As I said, "I Have Nothing" ends up winning Best Song at the Oscars later in the film.  However, when she wins Best Actress, she wins for "Queen of the Night" – a song she performed earlier in the film in a scene that made it seem like it was a new song/music video she was releasing. But it’s a film now? What?

     

    Anyway. She wins Best Actress, the fugly guy she was flirting with earlier attempts to assassinate her but Kevin Costner stops it all. The movie ends on a freeze frame that is not deserving of a freeze frame. 

     

    Thank you! That’s it.

  10. Kylie and Madonna stans should overlap more, in my humble opinion. They're pretty similar artists in that what I like about both of them is their extensive discography of thematically different albums. Obviously, I am an expert on both (it's sarcasm, I promise) so I decided I would compile a list of Kylie albums to listen to based on Madonna albums that you may like. Let's start with the most obvious comparison:

     

    Ray_of_Light_Madonna.png      Kylie_Minogue_Impossible_Princess.png

    Ray of Light ---> Impossible Princess

    The Experimental One

    If you like the more experimental electronic sound of Ray of Light, Impossible Princess might be your Kylie album! While more trip-hop and a bit darker than ROL, it's Kylie's most experimental album and the one she wrote the most songs on, and her writing is quite impressive if you ask me. Also fun fact, Madonna said that Don't Tell Me from Music was inspired by Kylie's Cowboy Style from IP, which is an EXTREMELY fun fact if you ask me!

     

    Bedtime_Stories_Madonna.png       Kylie_Minogue_-_Body_Language.png

    Bedtime Stories ---> Body Language

    The R&B One

    Maybe it's my bias cause each of these are my favorite album by the two artists, but I do think Bedtime Stories fans will see the merits in Body Language as well. BS is more 90s r&b while BL is more 2000s r&b, but they're both each of the artists most cohesive albums musically. While I don't want to say definitively "if you like one, you're sure gonna love the other one!", I do think they could be good jumping off points for one another and both worked for me as vessels to get into each woman's discography.

     

    Confessions_On_A_Dancefloor.jpg       Kylie_Minogue_-_Fever.png        Kylie_Minogue_-_Light_Years.png

    Confessions on a Dance Floor ---> Fever OR Light Years

    The Early 2000s Disco Album

    Amazing that Kylie put out two, right?? Disco queen! I include both because I personally prefer big anthems like Your Disco Needs You over quiet the repetitive Can't Get You Out Of My Head and even though Fever is probably more similar to Confessions, if you're like me and Fever just doesn't quite do it for you, Light Years is a fun alternative (I know, unpopular opinion). Before I say anything else that could be bad let's just move on!

     

    Erotica_Madonna.png       Kylie_Minogue_-_Kylie_Minogue.png

    Erotica ---> Kylie Minogue (1994)

    The Super 90s Album

    I first want to say that when I say "dated" I don't mean it in a negative way. Something can sound quintessentially 90s and have that be the best part of it. That's how I feel about these 2 albums and why I think of them similarly. While not her first controversy, Erotica was Madonna's super sexual album that really stirred the pot for women in pop music lyrically and KM94 was Kylie's first non-PWL album and a huge break from her previous sound, so I'd consider both to be big turning points in their careers. If you're interested in sultry 90s music and Erotica is your Madonna album of choice, KM94 might be a good album for you! And even if not, just listen to Confide In Me it's so good I promise

     

    MDNA_Album_Cover.png       Kylie_Minogue_-_Kiss_Me_Once_(Official_A

    MDNA ---> Kiss Me Once

    The Messy Album

    Again, not a bad thing. I know both albums get a lot of hate but I honestly highly enjoy both quite a bit. One of my favorite things is cringy music by otherwise talented artists and these albums definitely work for me on that front. I figured I'd mention them for anyone that's like me that likes this kind of stuff, but I also understand if you like neither, that's ok too!

     

    True_Blue_Madonna.png       Kylie_Rhythm_of_Love_cover.png

    True Blue ---> Rhythm of Love

    The Fun Early Album

    I definitely use the word "fun" too much to describe music, but what can I say? Girls just wanna have fun! These albums are both generally upbeat and boppable. If you're looking for an early discography highlight, these are definitely good picks, and what do you know? Their both the artists third album! Rhythm of Love is more disco inspired 90s pop whereas I'd call True Blue an 80s pop album, I do think fans of one would enjoy the other.

     

    I couldn't find matches for all of the albums that I liked, so sorry if you didn't find your fave on here, but I wanted to add this one for shits and gigs:

     

    LikeAVirgin1984.png       Kylie_Minogue_-_Enjoy_Yourself.png

    Like a Virgin ---> Enjoy Yourself

    These albums have a lot in common: both are each artists worst album, both are their second albums, and I've never been able to listen to either in full. Similar icons! Although it should be noted that LAV has 2 iconic songs that are more than listenable please don't hurt me

     

    So...yeah, I was bored and thought this would be fun. If you have any other comparisons you'd like to share, I'd love to hear them!

  13. So over the past year, especially since the Witness era started, the question I hear a lot on and offline is "why are you a fan of Katy Perry?" I could give you the cliche answer and give you videos of how she really does have vocal talent and sales and yada yada but let me just give you the real reason why I would dare stan someone as "problematic!!1!1!" as Ms. Katy Perry.

    Her music means the world to me. When people are out there calling her music trash or horrible or just flat out making fun of it, it does hurt my heart a bit since her music has helped me get through a lot of hard times in my life. When Teenage Dream was released, I was just a freshman in high school. I had my small group of friends but I still felt like a huge outsider. I remember going home, turning on my iPod Touch and blasting Teenage Dream, ET, Pearl, The One That Got Away and Not Like The Movies. Those were my five favorites off of the album btw. Even though two of those songs are more on the sadder side, they still found a way to cheer me up when I was having a bad day. Those bad days were pretty much every day. I would watch her interviews and performances and her off beat personality always put a smile on my face. To this day, I remember watching her TOTGA performance on The X Factor and just falling in love.

    Prism was released my senior year and much of the same happened. I ADORED that album. I would find every excuse to listen to it. I even got in trouble during class because I tried to hide one of my ear buds and listen to Ghost in class. By this time I had found my niche in school and things were a lot better for me, but I still had my bad days and Katy still found a way to make it all better with her music.

    Now lets get to Witness. This summer was a really rough summer for me. There was some serious family stuff that I was having to deal with, and it all hit the fan during a family vacation. I remember sitting in the pool, alone, and just singing Witness in my head. To be more specific, the bridge. To many, this album aged like milk and they never even listen to it. People say it gives them cancer, that the album is shit, Katy's a flop, etc. But when I was at my worst these past few months, Witness was able to take my mind off of things for a short while and take me to Katy's world a bit. This album means the absolute world to me, as does all of the songs on the album.

    I know everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Obviously I know people aren't going to like Katy and the material she releases. I'm not saying you have to. But the next time you ask "why do you stan _______?" maybe remember that this artist holds a special place in that persons heart. I'll always love Katy and I will always support her, no matter what she does, who she marries, what her music is like. Katy, Ariana, Little Mix, all of my faves have helped me in ways that people just couldn't. So for that, I am eternally grateful to them and will always love them.

    (I have DVDs too brit9)

  15. i wrote this over a few days. i feel like they belong as a single song but i wrote them as two separate songs.

     

    the first half is the most recent addition i made, its the part i wrote as a different song than the original last half.

     

    tell me what you think.

    Spoiler

    I wanna be with you
    But you make it difficult to love you
    Your insensitive jokes
    They just go too far
    Yet i always end up forgiving you
    I don’t know why i always do
    But I fall for you every time I see you
    I want to be forever but
    We can never become one
    But I don’t want to say goodbye forever
    I promise myself i wouldn't cry
    But I don’t like the thought
    That i may never see you again
    I promised myself that i would be stronger
    But i can’t help myself
    But fell this one-sided love
    If i never see you again
    I hope that the you have loves you
    And their young little lights burn forever

     

    I've been thinking on how i should ask you
    So I wrote this song
    I just don't know if you know that it's about you
    I've been in love with you from the first moment I met you
    I love your freckles, your short hair
    And oddly, your sense of style
    But I don't know if you'd love me back
    You joke around but my heart can't take that
    I really want to be with you
    But I don't know if I'm "your type"
    Of if we're doomed to remain less than friends
    I want things to be special
    But the way you messed with her heart
    It's just not right
    She felt a black hole in her heart
    She felt her heart crumble into a thousand little pieces
    She liked you too
    But you found out
    And you "politely declined"
    I could tell she really fell for you
    Possibly more than I did
    This is an open letter
    To a boy that I wish I could be with
    To a boy that shattered my best friend's heart
    You said no but soon enough
    You decided you suddenly liked her back
    You just don't do that with one's heart
    Especially someone like her

    Despite being quite familiar with some of the songs it's probably only my 2nd listen.

    The first half definitely got my strawberry bouncing, whatever that means.

    A bit weak around the middle but otherwise solid!

    Definitely underrated among fans!

    DEMI

    DEMI LOVATO

    s2qKgH4.jpg

     

    REVIEW:
    Anyone who listens to radio or follows popular music in the slightest (or, I guess, enjoyed 2008 Disney Channel) knows the name and voice of Demi Lovato. The 25 year-old singer, whose sixth LP, Tell Me You Love Me, comes out later this month, already has a decent array of hits under her belt -- among them "Heart Attack," "Cool for the Summer," "No Promises," and more. But despite her pop influence, listening to 2013's Demi was my first time sticking with Lovato's music for an entire album. I'd also like to preface this review with the notion that I'm not the biggest fan of pure pop music, so some of my feelings about the record may be more a result of personal preference than technical imperfections. As a whole, Demi is a solid pop album. I didn't feel a story being told throughout, and jumps from tracks like the spare, heartfelt "In Case" to the much more boisterous "Really Don't Care" are questionable, but, thematically, I appreciate the way Demi juggles both a carefree persona musing on love and hookups as well as a more somber outlook reflecting on abuse and hardship. Musically, there's a number of good songs on this record. My favorite by far is "Shouldn't Come Back," a heartfelt acoustic track rich with feeling. "In Case," too, is successful in its solemnity, while tracks like "Fire Starter" and "Without the Love" are among the album's best pure pop tracks. My biggest issue with the album, however, is its production. Demi, despite whatever unfair criticisms may come from being a "Disney kid," has a powerful voice, and there were points during this album where the blaring, made-for-radio, pop instrumentals bothered me because of how they obscured Demi's vocals. "Neon Lights," for example, is annoyingly EDM, and "Nightingale," despite being one of the less dressed up tracks on the album, would benefit so heavily from a more stripped back production. Some of the tracks are flawed without regards to production (the way Demi drags out "hurt" in the chorus of "Never Been Hurt" is simply confusing), but I feel like this album might find some strength in a more alt-pop production for some of its tracks. Personally, Demi's voice is one I'd most like to hear in an alternative setting, anyway (which is probably why I so enjoy the track "Stone Cold" from 2015's Confident), so, naturally, I enjoyed this album less than someone who digs in-your-face pop. Demi is undoubtedly skilled, and with a more alternative sound and more lyrical maturity, this album would probably be a winner. I do appreciate, though, the handful of good tracks on it, and I'll be sure to check out Tell Me You Love Me when it drops in a few weeks.

    RATING:
    6/10

    HIGHLIGHTS:
    Shouldn't Come Back, Fire Starter, In Case, Heart Attack, Without the Love, Made in the USA, Something That We're Not

    LOWLIGHTS:
    Never Been Hurt, Neon Lights, Two Pieces, Really Don't Care

    WOULD I LISTEN AGAIN?
    DEFINITELY NOT          PROBABLY NOT*          MAYBE          PROBABLY          DEFINITELY
    *I might revisit tracks like "Shouldn't Come Back" or "Fire Starter" from time to time, but as a complete body of work, Demi simply doesn't do much for me. If anyone has any Demi recommendations that are more like "In Case," "Shouldn't Come Back," or "Stone Cold," let me know!

    LISTEN IF:
    You like radio-friendly pop with attitude and strong vocals, as well as a fair share of deep, personal lyricism.
