  3. Author's Note: I find it disturbing how so many male celebrities and fictional characters are romanticized by fangirls despite their abusive tendencies, so I wanted to write a song illustrating how ridiculous it is by stretching the analogy. It's called "Harley Quinn," and it's about a girl who sees a hot serial killer on the news and becomes obsessed with stanning him, not realizing she could be his next target. It might be the most fun I've ever had writing something, and I'm particularly proud of the homicidal bae part. wendy1

    I'm not confident enough to upload myself singing it, so I'm just posting the lyrics and you'll have to use your imagination for the production and melody. Imagine it as a catchy tongue-in-cheek bubblegum pop song like "Sweet but Psycho," "I Don't Want It At All," and "How to Be a Heartbreaker." Tell me what you think below, and if you want to read anything else I've done!



    Harley Quinn



    Freddy, Michael, Jason, him

    Comes out when the lights are dimmed

    Wanna be his Harley Quinn

    Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn

    When the Psycho strings begin

    They all run but I give in

    Wanna be his Harley Quinn

    Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn


    Verse 1

    The town police, said lock your doors

    A killer's out, out for blood and gore

    I saw his face, on CNN

    I'm gonna make, make him my boyfriend



    He called me 'bout my favorite scary movie home alone

    I fought it but I can't resist the structure of his bones

    Kill count higher than an episode of Game of Thrones

    I'm not even bothered though, bothered though, bothered though



    Freddy, Michael, Jason, him

    Comes out when the lights are dimmed

    Wanna be his Harley Quinn

    Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn

    When the Psycho strings begin

    They all run but I give in

    Wanna be his Harley Quinn

    Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn



    Chased me down the alleyway

    I don't care what people say

    That's my homicidal bae

    'Cidal bae, 'cidal bae

    Freddy, Michael, Jason, him

    Comes out when the lights are dimmed

    Wanna be his Harley Quinn

    Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn


    Verse 2

    He's on the prowl, and so am I

    I wanna be, be his alibi

    Now all the bodies, pile up

    But who gives a damn, 'cause baby I'm in love



    He called me 'bout my favorite scary movie home alone

    I fought it but I can't resist the structure of his bones

    Kill count higher than an episode of Game of Thrones

    I'm not even bothered though, bothered though, bothered though



    Freddy, Michael, Jason, him

    Comes out when the lights are dimmed

    Wanna be his Harley Quinn

    Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn

    When the Psycho strings begin

    They all run but I give in

    Wanna be his Harley Quinn

    Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn



    Chased me down the alleyway

    I don't care what people say

    That's my homicidal bae

    'Cidal bae, 'cidal bae

    Freddy, Michael, Jason, him

    Comes out when the lights are dimmed

    Wanna be his Harley Quinn

    Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn



    You better back, up with that knife

    Cause I'm your final, final girl for life

    We're Ryder-Slater, in the school

    I love the guys, who disregard the rules



    Freddy, Michael, Jason, him

    Comes out when the lights are dimmed

    Wanna be his Harley Quinn

    Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn

    When the Psycho strings begin

    They all run but I give in

    Wanna be his Harley Quinn

    Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn



    Chased me down the alleyway

    I don't care what people say

    That's my homicidal bae

    'Cidal bae, 'cidal bae

    Freddy, Michael, Jason, him

    Comes out when the lights are dimmed

    Wanna be his Harley Quinn

    Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn

  6. Been thinking of doing this for a while so here it is

    This ranking will not include Y Kant Tori Read or Midwinter Graces or Gold Dust as I personally do not consider them main albums toward her discography

    Therefore 13 albums will be included in this ranking from my least fave to most fave - And I will be pointing out some of my fave tracks from each album




    Night of Hunters


    Simply put I am not a pure classical gay

    I love the concept surrounding this album of writing lyrics for already existing pieces of music but I myself cannot get into it

    I much prefer classical and orchestral reworkings of artists songs like what she did next with Gold Dust

    Fave Tracks - Nautical Twilight



    Strange Little Girls


    Another album with a concept that borrows heavily from already existing work - This one consists entirely of covers of songs originally performed by men

    I have never really been able to get into this album for some reason and should probably re-visit it soon

    Fave Tracks - 97 Bonnie and Clyde | Enjoy The Silence



    Unrepentant Geraldines


    Another one I have not really been able to get into - And another one that relies somewhat on a concept that involves already existing work

    I am noticing a theme here - I prefer when Tori is more original

    This album does have a few standouts but I rarely re-visit it

    Fave Tracks - Trouble's Lament | Promise | Giant's Rolling Pin wendy3



    American Doll Posse


    This is a massive album and I think that has somewhat effected my being able to get into it entirely

    However she goes OFF many times during this record and for that we have to stan

    Leave it to Tori to drag America through the mud

    Fave Tracks - Big Wheel | Bouncing Off Clouds | Programmable Soda | Fat Slut wendy3



    The Beekeeper


    Ok let us get to the real snappery now - This album is super underrated

    I have seen it get dragged as one of her worst but it has so many gems in it

    It really feels like you are strolling through a garden when listening to it - Or driving to Ireland in my Saab with Hunty @Hylia

    Fave Tracks - Sweet The Sting | The Power of Orange Knickers | Sleeps With Butterflies | Witness | Ireland | Martha's Foolish Ginger | The Beekeeper



    Scarlet's Walk


    I love this album for its incredibly rich and original concept

    It was bold and very needed at the time it was released and again you can always rely on her to spill the tea about the state of America

    Fave Tracks - Amber Waves | A Sorta Fairytale | I Can't See New York | Taxi Ride | Gold Dust



    Under The Pink


    Whew all immaculate albums coming up this is getting hard

    A worthy follow up to the groundbreaking Little Earthquakes yet I do not think it matched the same level that LE achieved

    That being said - This is a consistent and interesting album that I always like listening to in full and not to mention it contains the classic Cornflake Girl

    Fave Tracks - Pretty Good Year | God | Past The Mission | Baker Baker | The Wrong Band | The Waitress | Cornflake Girl | Space Dog | Yes Anastasia



    Boys For Pele


    This album I feel cemented Tori's legacy despite only being her 3rd

    The bold cover and never ending lashings she delivered in the songs established her as a force to be reckoned with

    Fave Tracks - Horses | Blood Roses | Father Lucifer | Professional Widow | Mr Zebra | Caught A Lite Sneeze | Muhammad My Friend | Hey Jupiter | Talula | In The Springtime Of His Voodoo | Putting The Damage On



    To Venus and Back


    Tori didn't have to make such a drastic style change but she gone and done it ANYWAY

    The change in style really paid off for her and sees her experimenting with electronica and trip hop while still keeping many elements of the piano sound she had established for herself

    As a fan of trip hop this album is a huge favourite of mine and she pulls it off incredibly well

    Fave Tracks - Juarez | Concertina | Glory of the 80s | Lust | Spring Haze | 1000 Oceans



    Native Invader


    I discovered Tori thanks to @Hylia not long before this album was released and it became an immediate fave as soon as I heard it

    Another album that shows her ability to comment on the current state of America very well - She delivers more lashings

    This is also one of her more heavily produced albums and shows further experimentation

    Fave Tracks - Reindeer King | Wings | Breakaway | Wildwood | Chocolate Song | Bang | Climb | Bats | Benjamin | Upside Down 2



    Abnormally Attracted To Sin


    Whew another album which sees her experimenting with trip hop and electronica - I truly consider this to be one of her best works

    It really does have a sinister sound at parts (Especially the title track which is a trip hop masterpiece) and was my go to album when I visited NYC last year - So now it reminds me of NYC

    It also contains one of my most adored Tori songs - Fire To Your Plain

    I also saw someone drag it on Twitter the other day so to them I say kiss my ass

    Fave Tracks - Give | Strong Black Vine | Flavor | Not Dying Today | Fire To Your Plain | Police Me | That Guy | Abnormally Attracted To Sin | 500 Miles | Mary Jane



    From The Choirgirl Hotel


    Tori's ability to write deeply personal songs never fails to amaze me as she does it in such a way that is cathartic for her while being relatable to her fans

    This album has many career standouts that I personally regard as classics - And I feel this is one of her most iconic records

    Fave Songs - Spark | Cruel | Black Dove (January) | Raspberry Swirl | Jackie's Strength | i i e e e | She's Your Cocaine | Hotel | Playboy Mommy | Purple People



    Little Earthquakes


    This is probably extremely cliche as I would bet many regard this as her best album

    Most artists debut albums are not normally their best however this is a big exception

    However this album is truly groundbreaking and deeply personal as it is influenced considerably by her rape - It truly helped create a discussion surrounding rape and sexual violence in the states

    It gave a voice to victims and they found safety and understanding in this album

    In addition to this it contains songs that I personally feel are very relatable - I think it is a very coming of age album in addition to its personal themes

    Fave Songs - Literally all of them

    So that is that

    If you have never checked out Tori before or have thought about doing it I would highly encourage it

    I think her discography has something for everyone and for sure something that everyone can relate to

    Thanks again to @Hylia for introducing me to her

  7. Latest Entry

    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. 



    “Happy Black History Month” reads the status posted by fotpforums user @DespunkThoseFawkingBawls

    “Ugh leave this forum you fucking annoying race baiting freak” replies user @Madonna despite the status just being posted 4 seconds ago. 

    It may be 3:32am where the madonna stanning user lives. But that didn’t stop him from logging and and checking Winnie’s post history for updates. Just like it didn’t stop him the other 2321 times. 

    “This will make him leave!” The Madonna Stan thinks, a demented smirk sprawled across his face. He sits inches away from the HP laptop screen, the 376x282 low definition display burning his corneas to a crisp. But he doesn’t care. He never cares.

    All her cares about is the moment when Winnie wakes up, and sees that notification. How will he feel? Will he weep? Will he become enraged? Will he wallow in sorrow? Or will he ignore the notification, just like the other 674 stacked in his notification box from the same user. 

    The madonna user wonders if he’ll ever be acknowledged again. And for a brief moment he wonders if his efforts are in vain? Should he perhaps put this energy somewhere productive? But he doesn’t like thinking logically. It hurts his head. 

    He steps two feet over to his twin-sized mattress, nuzzled comfortably in the corner of his 6x6 room. His head lays roughly on the bare mattress, not a bed sheet or pillow in site. As he drifts off to sleep, the stinging sensation from screen watching for 13 hours still present. A smile sprawls across his face. “I bet he’ll be pressted” he thinks as he drifts off to sleep.

    But I won’t be, and I never am.

  9. Hey gurls


    So I work in music publishing and work with songwriting/song info. I won't have access to this info for much longer, so if you have any requests for credit splits/songwriting credits/how much a song is earning this month, for pretty much any song, leave your requests here and I can fetch the info for you :)


    Example: You want to to know how much songwriting credit each songwriter of New Rules by Dua Lipa is getting:

    Ailin Caroline, 33.33%

    Ian Eric Kirkpatrick, 33.33%

    Emily Warren Schwartz, 33.33%

    (half of their percentages go to their publishers)


    The shares aren't always split evenly, sometimes some artists who claim to write these songs are only getting 1-2% while their cowriters have 25% or even up to 50% of the work. So anything you are curious about feel free to ask (and then use the receipts in BG)

    Artists that disappointed me

    220px-Something_To_Tell_You_Haim.png    220px-Hurts_-_Desire.png    


    Haim started so well with a clip of Right Now before the release of the first single. It was so raw and emotional. However, later it turned out the song was reworked for the album. Many songs are too light and jolly. The worst part is that they sound the same. It isn't a bad album overall, but after a cool debut, I expected more. This was too commercial for Haim.


    The 4th album of Hurts becomes even more commercial sounding. Songs have cliche lyrics and basic production. Hurts are the best when they get darker lyrically and production wise. 

  11. "I Don't Know Her!": Fantastic Albums You Might Not Know!
    Give 'Em a Chance!

    I'm going to attempt to use this blog to give credit to albums which, in my opinion, are underrated or just unknown in general. You may not like my choices, and that's okay! But trust me when I say you can find beauty in any art if you give it a chance <3 

    This Entry's Underrated Album: Rabbits on the Run by Vanessa Carlton


    Vanessa Carlton first made her appearance on the pop scene with the massive hit "A Thousand Miles," which is known now a days for being a cult classic more than an actual chart topper. To many, this song was Vanessa Carlton's only notable song, cementing her status as a "one-hit-wonder." Many people were not even aware that the single was accompanied by the debut album Be Not Nobody, assuming that the single was the only work released to the public. However, not only did she create one album, but five albums in total. 

    Vanessa, like many other popstars at first, was a slave to the image that her label concocted for her. The music she desired to create was not something the general public or the record label was interested in. Her first three albums were specifically pop, generally following the same pattern. While artistic growth in terms of complexity and writing styles were still strikingly prevalent as the albums progressed from her first, second (Harmonium), and third albums (Heroes and Thieves), nothing really prepared her small group of fans to the shift she would take in her fourth. 

    Finally able to release music she was truly interested in, Vanessa began to craft what is, in my humble opinion, her greatest work to this date. After a long hiatus that spanned 2007 to 2011 (release year), Rabbits on the Run was finally available to the public. The album itself spawned no successful singles, it received good reviews by critics. Stephen Erlewine from AllMusic remarked that "This [was] music made with no audience in mind: it is strikingly personal." And it shows. Carlton shifted drastically from pop music directly to an indie-like approach. 


    What this album aesthetic feels like to me:
    When I listen to this album I feel a strong sense of wondering and peace. It really has the ability to draw out very raw and personal emotions from deep within, allowing me to mull them over. Sound dramatic? Probably. But it is the best way to describe how I feel during this album. When I imagine a good aesthetic for this album, I picture a quiet night after a long, taxing day full of emotion. In a cabin by the woods during spring, with cold rain tapping gently on the window, a glass of wine in hand, a good book, and warm blankets to cuddle up in. Or possibly taking a walk in a mysterious enchanting forest. 


    A Brief Track by Track Review:

    A beautiful way to begin the album. This song is very light-hearted and hopeful about finding new love after it is lost. (7/10)

    I Don't Want to Be a Bride 
    A summery song about finding your true love, but not wanting to have to "wear white" to spend forever with them. The imagery used in this song is well crafted and is showcased by Vanessa's warm vocals. (8/10)

    This is the song that truly began my love of Vanessa. Not only is this one of, if not the best songs on the album, but it also happens to be one of my favorite songs of all time. To me, the lyrics are extremely relatable and thought provoking. "I've never been so sure that after all these years I'll never learn that heavenly creatures never come," Vanessa sings as she pours her heart out into the mic. This song is about feeling fooled by a relationship, love, or crush. The narrator feels tired of waiting and searching for that special someone, lamenting that she is wasting away her time waiting for her "new age." (10/10)

    Fairweather Friend 
    A feathery song about an old lover/friend who only seems to think about fame or the luxuries of life. Vanessa knows that this person is only faking it through life without really ever facing reality. (6/10)

    Hear the Bells
    One of the more mysterious songs on the album, "Hear the Bells" is a song that wrestles with the vagueness of life and the difficulties of life. Rampant metaphors are seen through this song, as Vanessa moves through the different ways she searches for an answer. This track has a charm about it that is hard to explain, which may have something to do with its overall unexplained overall message. However, this could be a perfect metaphor for life itself: not sure how to figure it out, but it is fascinating to try. (8/10)

    Dear California
    This song is the closest this album gets to pop as a whole. Its deep lyrics are contrasted breezily with an upbeat and danceable rhythm. I can't help singing along to this song or tapping my foot when it comes on my shuffle. Great song to sing in the car! "But he loves me as I leave, so I've gotta go!" (9/10)

    Tall Tales for Spring 
    This. This is the song that is arguably the crowning jewel of the album. Deliciously mischievous with wicked lyrics and an involved instrumental, this song conjures the almost cynical side of the phenomena of love, life, spirituality, and "madness of the heart." Truthfully, I'm not sure exactly what this song is truly trying to tell the listener. However, this is what I believe makes it so intriguing. Production wise, this is the most intense song of the album, which comes as an insane jolt of energy compared to its rather calm and easy sister songs. If a listener was to pick only one song to listen to from this album, I'd highly suggest this one. This song and its counterpart In the End are magnificent and crown the album with grace and pride. (10/10)

    A few choice lyrics that happen to be some of my favorite:

    "The wicked in me is surely the wicked in you.
    We pray to a ghost that we've never met.
    Time turns for a cure from the scientists for
    Madness of the heart."

    "Hawking will tell us no tall tales this spring, 
    Our minds hold the ciaos that started everything."


    Get Good
    Taking it down a notch after the previous song, this piece reminds me of a rainy day in a cafe. The topic is recovery after a rough patch in life. Vanessa encourages a friend to take a minute, breathe, and take a moment "to get good again." (8/10)

    The Marching Line
    A lone piano starts off this track, capturing attention immediately. This song slowly swells like the slow anxiety of walking up to your destiny and future. While this is the track that is most somber, it is by no means a dud. Essentially, Vanessa reflects on how her future is calling and she must leave all of what she knows behind in order to fulfil her life. She will sail on a ship with no captain, off into the grey seas. "Fortune tellers, fortunes tell her..." (9/10)

    In the End
    Never fails to give me chills. This is the best way to end the album. I had mentioned previously that this was the counterpart to Tall Tales for Spring, this is because the instrumental is TTFS slowed down and given a more ambient sound. While the song itself is considerably short and only has a handful of lyrics, it is easily the most haunting and magical track on the album. In the End reflects on how death is inevitable and unavoidable, after all it's the way of all things. As I listen to this song, I imagine sinking deep into a black, peaceful ocean. And with this song the album comes to a close. (10/10)

    Highlights of the Album
    Tall Tales for Spring, London, In the End, The Marching Line, & Dear California 

    Overall Rating: 7.8/10

    part 2


    Someone wise once said "life without love is meaningless" perhaps I snapped when I said that. After breaking up with @Hylia in March, in the wee-hours of my anniversary celebrations, I discovered he had a ring for me, as a gift. I already married him once, gave him full custody of our three children, Tori, Mariah and Sylk Jr. and left his world for good, but going through the divorce, knowing what it meant to be away from him, knowing who I was without him... I knew I could not go back. I left with my fingers bare that night. Needless to say, Hylia and I have remained excellent friends since, our number one priority will always be our kids. But I still see that ring box sitting on the desk in his living room everytime I go to visit the kids. Does he still love me? I wonder.

    Despite the doubts, I was persistent to stay single there after, even though guys were coming left and right I decided that I needed some time off, ofcourse @Jae kept texting me, @Aidan.  kept leaving flowers at my door, and @Winnie. kept stalking me, but I was done with men. I was done with all of them. I even deleted the picture of @SWINΞ I had kept when I had grown quite the crush on him. It felt liberating. Something was different in me, I felt new, even my friends @Arya and @Mitski said so.

    It's a funny thing really, it's easy to be in your world, build it exactly to tend to your needs, easy to be alone but we have a biological desire to welcome another in this bubble that we've built. Nature's way to bend you. So it made complete sense when i met someone, it was the universe's way of telling me, the time was right. My October nights were suddenly filled with conversation about love and life, talk that went on till the sun came up, even though we both had work we didn't care. His words were so beautiful, the way he spoke, his thoughts, his mind, it amazed me. I had never felt such a fire before, except maybe with Hylia. But this was so much more.

    Still I was scared, I did not want to lose him. I guess after losing so many people in my life. I really wanted this to work. I have not told him yet, but I feel alot of love for him, yes I love him. And I wanna tell him, soon. But uncertainty still echoes at the far back of my mind, Does he still love me?

    To be continued....

    Hey FOTPers jj2. In this thread I'm going to post about some of my favorite albums of all time where I like/love at least 80%+ of the album. brit13 First off I'm gonna start with my faves:

    • janet. by Janet Jackson: This album made me fall in love with 90s music and culture. For me, this album embodies the 90s music perfectly. There's pop, there's R&B, there's opera, there's new jack swing, there's ballads... It may be my favorite album from Janet tbh. I like every single song on this one but the exceptions are If, This Time, Throb, Any Time, Any Place and Where Are You Now. oprah2Those songs have left me bald ever since I first heard them. And the tour was snatching with the costumes being a highlight for me. Moving on...
    • Ray of Light by Madonna: When I first heard this album in 2012/13, I hated it with a passion and only liked Frozen and that was it. Then June 2015 happened when a voice told me to give it a second chance and I'm glad I did tbh. The lyrics, the melodies, her voice, the visuals... Pure p e r f e c t i o n.
    • The Fame Monster by Lady Gaga: Her best era in my opinion. Perfect tour, perfect videos, perfect album with no skippable tracks, something her other albums don't have, but Born This Way comes very close if it wasn't for FOHL and BJ+AF. jj3
    • Stripped by Christina Aguilera: I was hesitating between Bionic and this one but I went with Stripped only because Fighter, Walk Away, Dirrty and I'm OK are on it. rih14 I love me some shady, vulnerable and contoversial Xtina. All of those in one era. Whew she did THAT tbh. fall9 Also this album and the next one I consider them very personal;
    • PRISM by Katy Perry: This album has helped me so much for these past 2/3 years. By the Grace of God, Double Rainbow, Roar, Walking on Air, Unconditionally, Spiritual, Choose Your Battles and It Takes Two to be exact and I'll be forever grateful to Katy for releasing such a great body of work. It deserved to win at least 2 Grammys. rih14



    WILL BE UPDATED SOON jj2 (didn't know that I liked the 90s more than the 80s jj3)

  17. I often think about random questions that I try to resolve but most of the time I end up on Wikipedia moo12 

    Todays’s question: 


    Is there a language(s) that are better suited for me out there than my mother tongue? (English)


    We are In no control in the beginning of our lives. We don’t get to choose where, when or pretty much if we decide to exist. We are also not in control the language we are born into. 


    When people immigrant to America and adapt American culture (or even do so in their homeland) they do so because of personal preference

    So my question is if there is another language out there that is better suited for me? Maybe my mind would prefer a language that has a different sentence structure. Maybe my body prefers the physical feeling that my mouth, vocal chords and lips feel in another language. Maybe my ears prefer the sounds of a language with a different use of vowels. moo12 

    I have wondered this for some time and have narrowed it down to either one of the Baltics ( Lithuanian or Latvian),  Basque, Berber, or Hebrew. moo12 


    But then another question arises, would I have preferred a language that is now dead or extinct, or the archaic version of a language ? moo12 


    let me stop before I get a headache moo12 


    do you think there is a better language out there for you?
