Gaming | Vol. 1

Gaming | Vol. 1 Hiya, people! It's been a while since I posted a blog, and I'm really getting back into the gaming scene,
specifically for my Nintendo 3DS, so I thought I'd jot something down for a new blog entry.
I'll post some of my all time favorite games, which ones I have and which ones I definitely want to have. It all happened when I downloaded the free app; Animal Crossing, Pocket Camp. I got addicted to it in no time. Now I can't wait to get my hands on Animal Crossing New Leaf and I was just wondering if there are any other AC fans here? 
Anyway, feeling the joy of playing that app really rekindled my love for my DS games and dusted off my wishlist to try and prioritize which ones I want and also see what else is out there that I've been missing out on. So if you guys have any recommendations based on the games I own and that I want to own, please let me know! GAMES I OWN Professor Layton My biggest love and #1 game series will always be; Professor Layton. I was a fan from the very beginning and trust me, I teared up and was insanely excited when I heard about Lady Layton. <3  Professor Layton and the Curious Village

The Brilliance of the "Like A Virgin" Album Cover

At first glance, the album cover for Madonna’s 1984 album Like A Virgin isn’t necessarily anything special. It does not hold the striking, emotional profile of her debut, nor the statuesque elegance of its successor, True Blue. Instead, Like A Virgin portrays an unsurprisingly seductive, sepia-toned portrait of Madonna. Even the font type used is a simple, unassuming serif in dull tones that sink into the colors of the rest of the cover. To give it its fair due, it could have been much worse: at least it did not go the typical 80s gaudiness route that befell many of her single releases. But, overall, is Like A Virgin as iconic compared to her other releases of the era?   When one delves into the dynamics of the cover, they would realize how all of the elements play off each other in a brilliant contradiction of title, name, and imagery.   Let’s start with Madonna’s namesake: “Madonna” is the original title attributed to the biblical Virgin Mary. As one could guess, Mary – the mother of Jesus Christ – is celebrated for retaining her virginity even through her immaculate conception. Because of Mary, the concept of virginity is sacred within Christianity. Girls and women are expected to remain abstinent until after they are married (because we can’t all magically conceive children of God and remain virgins forever). Brides wear white on their wedding day to signify their preserved purity – emulating the Virgin Mary.   By 1984 – just a year into her career – Madonna had already established she was an unabashed sexual creature with songs like “Burning Up” and “Physical Attraction”, firmly distancing herself from her religious namesake. Recording a song like “Like A Virgin” further toys with the aforementioned topic. Even Madonna first baulked at the idea of being like a virgin – as the song itself uses the phrase as a simile, likening the experience of falling in love after a brutal breakup to a virgin being “touched for the very first time”. But that did not stop her from grabbing hold of the concept and spinning it on its head with the imagery for her album cover.   Now as its getting clearer, let’s break down the album cover. Madonna is lounged out on a bed wearing a promiscuous, low-cut version of a wedding dress with the shadows accentuating her breasts. She sports a debauched head of hair while staring with a pout out into the audience. The look is brought together by the iconic “Boy Toy” belt; that title itself proudly claiming a licentious lifestyle. Each one of these elements contradicts the Christian concept of the Virgin Mary and the purity of brides. Even the title Like A Virgin paired with the name “Madonna” comes off as tongue-in-cheek; a lascivious joke poking fun of the entire strict, religious ritual Madonna spent her entire early life and career rebelling against.   At face value, the cover for Like A Virgin might not have the immediate aesthetic appeal of some of Madonna’s other records. But, for me, the levels of imagery playfully countering traditional concepts gives the cover interesting depth – and cements it as one of the best album covers in pop music history.    



My signatures

My signatures are an integral part of fotp history, and I will list them below. It’s hot outside and sit on my porch, sucking a popsicle. It’s cherry flavor, their favorite flavor was always cherry. I sit and reminisce about the times we spent together. And I don’t feel  sad, because those memories bring me happiness. I finish up my popsicle just as they call me inside, they’re still here with me. But I still think about our memories, so that I’ll nver forgot them when they’re gone. I sometimes wish we lived forever. Just look at world now, Normani is gone, Ally is gone, Dinah is gone, Lauren is gone, and I’m still standing. My name is Camila Cabello, and I want to take you on a journey through the development and creation of my most personal album yet, simply titled M(e)ila. Put your safety goggles on now, this is where the darkness comes to light... _______________________________ I was on various drugs when I chose this username, and now I must suffer the consequence of it. This is not a publicity stunt, I’m actually worried for my mental health. Please if anyone is reading this, please help me. Please buy Charmbracelet on iTunes , you know the shtick. Send me receipt verification, and then I’ll get better. Please, please, please do this for your friendly neighborhood troll, I know you want to see more of me in this upcoming year. Please do this for me and help me, and help him. __________________________________ It was unusually chilly this Halloween night. I had decided to attend one of my towns infamous Halloween party’s that night, and was enthralled. The party was excellent, lots of people had really great costumes and I had gone as a pirate. The party was on the outskirts of my small town a little whiles away in the wood. I had drunkily dozed off in One the tents, and when I had awoken everyone had already gone. I checked my phone and it was around 1am. I only had 3% battery so I had about enough to make one call, I decided to try my local taxi service, Brocka Taxis. My town was very small, and at the time didn’t have Uber or Lift. Luckily, they picked up and said I was lucky I had called as they were doing their last drives of the night. They said the wait would be around 30 minutes so I waited in silence. My phone died shortly after the call, I stood by the street I walked to in the cold. I watched my breath in the freezing air to pass the time. A little time after, I saw the headlights of a car begin to materialize in the distance. I waved my hands and they honked on notice. The slowly pulled up to me and I read the little motto I had come to know. “Brocka Taxis, We’ll never say never!”. I was glad at that time, cause if they could I’d be stranded here. I got in the taxi and was greeted to a rather good looking women in her late 20s. I said hi and introduced myself just to be cordial, she replied back “Hello, I’m Brandy, where are you headed?”. My stomach dropped and I almost gasped. “Excuse me what did you say?”, I questioned nervous. “I said Hi, I’m Brandy, where are you headed?”, she replied with a slight giggle at the end. I saw her shoot me deathly glare in the rear view mirror along with a taunting smile. Desperate, I told her my location, she smiled and what she said next to me stunned me. “Ah, I know where that is, we’ll have to take the freeway though, that sound good?”. She smiled with that again, I shuddered. We sat in silence for minutes, even though they felt like hours, as she awaited my response. I gathered all the courage I had in me and replied, “No, no thank you actually”. She chuckled slightly to herself, and unlocked the doors, I had no idea she had even locked them. I got out and immediately started walking back the other direction, I heard her start to drive along side me and I held my head down. “You have a safe night” she said as she drove on off. I looked up shortly after and the car was gone, not a skid mark or anything just vanished. It was a long dark walk home that night, my only company the Full moon.  __________________________________ My sweet sweet nana loves gays, but gays like me, you see. I’m normal, my nana loves me because I don’t act like a typical gay. One day my nana saw to gays kissing on tv, she turned the channel and whispered a silent prayer to God, “damn them to hell god, and abomination”. I giggled, it’s ok my sweet nana loves gays, gays like me. Another time I recall, my nana was walking to the store and saw to young teen boys holding hands, “Disgusting!” She screamed, the ran out of embarrassment. She told me when she got home, I lightly chucked to myself this time, my sweet nana loves gays, gays like me. One day I was in my room, dancing around to toxic, when my nana barged with laundry, “what the fuck are you doing! Come pray with me now!”, i was embarrassed,  but I was acting weird. So we prayed, and she’s looked at me a little funny since. But i guess it’s ok, my nana loves gays, gays like me?  ____________________________________ Ugh, I dread the day I turn 30. I know it’s so so far away, but it scares me. That’ll be the day my life ends, I’ll be a old fart rocking in chair by the fireplace reminiscing about how things used to be. Mariah Carey will be playing on the radio, no nevermind, it’ll be playing on whatever music technology my grandkids leave for me on table. They’ll barely visit their poor old grandpa. Every second will feel like years as I await my imminent death. Those below the age of 25 will laugh at me as I leave my house to get the mail. Spitting in my face, calling me a “old fag”. I’ll run, no limp, back into the house using my walker. I’ll cry, and wait until mother Mariah calls me back to the Lovely Place to live with her for all eternity. Where she lives there’s no beginning and there is no end, and it’ll feel like you’re dreaming, but you won’t be sleeping.

Memoirs of the Broken Hearted - Part II

part 1 here   As many of you already know me and @Hylia have worked things out, not just for the sake of our three beautiful children but also for ourselves. We are so much in love. But there is always that little space, it's very tiny, but it's there. It came to be when I ran into my ex @Jae, he asked me for a drink, no strings attached, I said sure it is New Years Eve what could go wrong? Hylia away to attend Walmart-con in Europe, the kids at @Kali's... what could go wrong?  A few drinks later, we were kissing, but I wasn't drunk, Jae was. I didn't let it go any further than that, I have a family I could not do that to them. I left, but I left my heart in Jaevana.  A little bit of history for you sylkmonsters out there, Jae and I met ages ago, when we first began dating, the passion was raw, hot, he and his.. kept me warm through the winter nights. We moved so fast that I couldn't say no when he first proposed to me. But when i came to my senses, I returned his abuela's ring back. He proposed a second time months later, I said no again. Eventually his infatuation with me shadowed the passion we had nurtured and we broke apart. He kept calling, texting, proposing, I kept ignoring, blocking and rejecting.  "I love you so much baby, I would die for you" He yelled one night from below my window. "Who is that?" @Aidan. had woken up, my then-boyfriend, "No one baby just go back to sleep" I rubbed his shoulder. Another time he crashed me and @ScatsusGifsallah's vacation in Capri, Italy. Stowed away in Winnie's private yacht. It took a while to get him to stop stalking me but he eventually did. When i bumped into him at the NYE party, there he was, wearing his Mariah Carey t-shirt, talking sweet and looking fine, it almost felt like we had never broken up and I could just run up to him, in his arms and press my lips against his and call him mine.. but that was far from the reality, I knew.  I have always been afraid to admit it, I will always be a part of Jae, as he will be mine. But is it wrong to explore that small minuscule space? The flame is there, the passion just needs a blow. My mind is racing with a million questions, but my fingers lingering over the text I have written out to Jae. "Call me" it says. Does he still feel the same way? Is it fair to Hylia? What is the right choice for me?  I sighed, as I pressed send.  Will he text back? If he does, that's bad, if he doesn't.. that's even worse.  To be continued... 



how a gassy uber driver almost killed me yesterday

i just felt boogie yesterday cause i had a 30% discount and i overslept so i decided i wont wait for a cab ill just get an uber cause itll be faster. what WOULD have been a 7-8 minute drive to campus ended up being 30 minutes mainly cause the dumbass wouldnt look at the map and just decided to cross a street KNOWING THAT HE CANT FUCKING CROSS IT BECAUSE HE WOULD BE DRIVING AGAINST THE ROAD AND THAT ALONE TOOK HIM 10 MINUTES. i just had my earphones on and didnt care to listen 👂 to what he was saying but everytime he angrily spun the wheel he would fart ... it wasnt mild little air tickles they were fairly  audible with a decent amount of STENCH and the non audible ones were even worse those were the REALLY fucking bad ones I could not begin to describe my disdain and i didnt want to open the window to embarass the guy i just thought itll all be over very soon. anyway by the time we almost got there, the roads were watery and there was a bit of traffic and we were approaching the car but then we got too close to the car in front of us and i looked at him and he was looking to his left and eventually hit the car in front of us. AH HELL NAWL i thought to myself while having an extremely neutral face i was so over him and over all of this and i couldnt cancel the trip cause the uber thing would penalize me or sth but i was already v close n shit so i couldnt be assed to tamper with it.. itll be over soon 🤠 hes also such an asshole that he left the car in the middle of the road to check the front of the car for bumps when there was traffic behind him  PEOPLE HAVE SHIT TO DO YOU STUPID APE COULD YOU NOT HAVE PARKED ON THE SIDE 👏🏿  anyway by the time i got there i realized class was cancelled AND 👏🏿THE 👏🏿GAG👏🏿IS 👏🏿SHE👏🏿MENTIONED👏🏿THAT👏🏿LAST👏🏿TIME👏🏿 AND 👏🏿 I 👏🏿COMPLETELY👏🏿FORGOT👏🏿   and today the powers been out all night bc too much Rain.m4a etc and idk i just know that im sad and im staying in bed until theres water warm enough to accommodate my icy love handles and i dont wanna go out without a shower (does that make me narcissistic??) and theres a really hot guy giving my lecture in 10 minutes and im just so..   i dont want money i just want SEX see my chocolate starfish =====> HERE

Review-ish - Camilla

Hey y'all and welcome to my review (kinda)  of camila's debut album! Can't wait to listen since I've heard nothing but good things about this album 1-Never Be The Same  It's not really that good I expected more since it's the starter but it's ok the chorus kinda annoys me but it's a ok song 2-All these years its very cool  I really do like it it's pretty good I'd listen to it by the beach or smth  3-She loves control  the beginning is really bad but the rest is ok nothing great but it's fine  4-Havana HAVANA OO NANA 5-inside out i get a tropical vibe which is pretty cool the chorus annoys me too but the rest is cool tbh this sounds like the " Brave new girl " of the album , Femme fatale's inside out outsold  6-Consequences  it's a amazing song but it's one of these songs I'd listen to when I have no other song to listen to  7-Real Friends I love the acoustic vibe and probably the 2nd best song on this album and I kinda relate to it  8-Something's Gotta Give  I really love the chorus it's amazing and I also can relate to this  9-In the dark the beginning sounds very similar to something's gotta give but it's a good song  I like it  10-Into it  It sounds familiar I think I've heard a similar song in 2008 or 09 but it's a bop Overall: i give this album a 8.5 out of 10  It has a bunch of good songs and bops but bad & boring ones too I found myself skipping some tracks because I got really bored after 1 or 2 mins
