Favorite Songs of 2020

45. Perfume Genius - Your Body Changes Everything The new Perfume Genius album isn't my cup of tea, but YBCE is one of the more interesting songs that I like. 44. Roisin Murphy - Narcissus  Roisin Murphy always manages to spice up her sound, this time with disco, and she always finds a way to be different, creative and unique. 43. Madonna - I Don't Search I Find  An interesting dance song by Madonna that sounds more like some 90s dub mix than an actual song. Smooth produ

SeekingThrill's 50 Favorite Albums of the 2010s

50. Roxette - Good Karma (2016) The final album by pop rock duo Roxette. It is classic Roxette with a modern touch. A lot of bops. One of their better works. Highlights: Why Dontcha?, Good Karma, You Can't Do This to Me Anymore. 49. Tori Amos - Unrepentant Geraldines (2014) Tori Amos always surprises me, because she always manages to deliver interesting melodies, while never ditching her signature sound. I like the fact this album was inspired by visual artists su



Alternate History of Mariah Carey

Hi. This is the second story about an alternate history of an artist. If you want to read the first one about Madonna, click the link below. https://fotpforums.com/blogs/entry/710-alternate-history-of-madonna/     Alternate History of Mariah Carey The 90s - Mariah Carey started her career in 1990 with Charmbracelet, an album full of lovely and sleepy ballads. The lead single Vision of Success was a modest hit in Sri Lanka and USA.      - The next al



Favorite Albums of 2019

04. Madonna - Madame X Madonna is willing to try something new again, but this album had too many ideas. She should have been selective a bit and ditched the autotune. It isn't flawless or one of Madonna's best albums, but it is a decent album and actually one of the most interesting and creative. It definitely seems underrated when critics overrated some other basic pop albums.  Highlights: Medellin, God Control, Crave.   03. Lana Del Rey - Norman Fucking Rockwell!



Favorite Albums of 2018

Top 5 Albums    05. Florence and the Machine - High as Hope 04. Meg Myers - Take Me to the Disco 03. Blossoms - Cool Like You 02. Pompeya - Dreamers 01. The Wombats - Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life



Best and Worst in Music of 2017

Top 5 Albums   05. Taylor Swift - Reputation 04. Lorde - Melodrama 03. Goldfrapp - Silver Eye 02. Ryan Adams - Prisoner 01. The Killers - Wonderful Wonderful   Artists that disappointed me            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



2016 Movies

The movies I plan to watch:   The Witch Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children Florence Foster Jenkins Passengers 10 Cloverfield Lane The Handmaiden Jackie Midnight Special  Assassin's Creed Sadako vs Kayako  Arrowhead The Other Side of The Door  Don’t Knock Twice         The movies I watched so far:          Kill Command was  good. Basically a



Alternate history of Madonna

The 70s   - Madonna appeared in small roles of some flop movies.  - Madonna and Cyndi Lauper and a few other people made a disco band called Mythological Ageism. First album Glitter Light (1978) did well, while Sepheryn (cover) became a top 5 hit.    The 80s - Second album Confessions On A Dance Floor (1980) flopped. Its was criticized for being too disco in a time when disco became irrelevant. Madonna and Cyndi wanted to cover ABBA's song and said things could have




Bananarama is a British pop group best known for their 80s hits such as Really Saying Something, Cruel Summer, Robert De Niro's Waiting and their cover of Venus. They released 10 albums so far. In the end of the 80s Siobhan Fahey left the group and a new girl joined them and left them in 1991. Since then Bananarama acts like a duo.   Bananarama is singles act and their albums have been collections of fillers most of the time. Don't even bother with their 90s and 2000s stuff. It is



Best and Worst in Music of 2016

2016 was a poor year music wise.  I had even problems to make a top 5 of favorite albums.     Top 5 Albums   05. Gwen Stefani - This Is What the Truth Feels Like It wasn't that bad like some people like to claim. There are a lot of gems. Using  some of the best songs as bonus material on deluxe edition was a bad idea. She choose some of the most basic songs to represent her album (Used To Love You is an exception). Highlights: Splash, Obsessed, Loveable, R



Must See Gay Themed Movies

The 60s Satyricon (1969), also known as Fellini Satyricon, is a weird fantasy drama directed by  Federico Fellini.  Wiki: "The film is divided into nine episodes, following the scholar Encolpius and his friend Ascyltus as they try to win the heart of the young boy Gitón, whom they both love, within the film's depiction of a surreal and dreamlike Roman landscape and culture."   The 70s  I didn't watch these movies, but they seem interesting and some of them are well kno



WTF Movies: Sixteen Candles

John Hughes is an iconic movie director and writer. Sixteen Candles was his debut as a director.  It was critically acclaimed, while I think that it is a solid movie.   The main issue is movie's plot. There is no plot. At least I felt that way.   We just see a bunch of teens hanging out in school, at party, at home... Typical teen problems and situations. Molly Ringwald plays her eternal role: an "unattractive" girl that gets a hot boy in the end.   The things in th



Get Your Shit Together: Gilmore Girls

Without any doubt, Gilmore Girls is a great TV show and probably one of the best of all time. It is a warm show and  makes you cozy.  Perfect option for Autumn and Winter.   Anyway, sometimes this show can be so unbelievable and some characters so annoying.     Lorelai and Rory Lorelai is the mother and Rory her daughter. Sometimes it feels like it is the other way around. Lorelei can be so childish. And sometimes both girls can be childish. I get that Lorelai wants to b



Annoying TV Characters

Usually the most annoying characters are the ones who are dumb as fuck, but there are always exceptions. Also, after watching the same shows more times, I noticed how some of those main characters can also be annoying.     Hyacinth Bucket  is a main character in Keeping Up Appearances, a British comedy series. She might be annoying, but she is a brilliant character. Wiki: Hyacinth Bucket  who insists her surname is pronounced Bouquet (although in reality,  is an ove



Rank The Albums: Grace Jones

10. Muse     09. Fame    08. Portofolio     What makes this basic disco album better than previous two messy works is a great reinvention of La Vie en rose. 07. Bulletproof Heart Brilliant album cover, but most of the songs here sound unfinished, amateurish and dated for the time when it was released. Grace wasn't in her zone and it is hard to understand how she made this after so many qualitative and unique albums. The album may seem as a disaster



The Best Albums of 2013

10. Tesla Boy - The Universe Made of Darkness 09. MS MR - Secondhand Rapture 08. Lady Gaga - ARTPOP/Katy Perry - PRISM 07. Chvrches - The Bones of What You Believe 06. CSS - Planta 05. New Order - Lost Sirens 04. Goldfrapp - Tales Of Us 03. Arcade Fire - Reflektor 02. Haim - Days Are Gone 01. Hurts - Exile



The Best Albums of 2015

This ranking is from Music Mania and I made a few changes.     15. Class Actress - Movies   Technically an EP, Movies is a synthpop work produced by Elizabeth Harper, Giorgio Moroder, Neon Indian and Mess Kid. This is the first work by Class Actress as a solo artist. Movies is inspired by "the films of '80s excess, glamor and self-discovery" and Harper wanted it to be "a dark story of a woman who explores the glamorous fantasy life of a Hollywood party girl." Song



Rank The Albums: Madonna

I decided to do this differently for Madonna albums, so some albums will share the same spot.. She has so many different and great albums, so it is hard to rank them. Also, I based this ranking on standard editions. I didn't want to judge albums by their songs on deluxe editions, which are just bonus songs.   10. Hard Candy It is horrible. Anybody who thinks it is good is delusional. Nothing on this album is worthy to be mentioned as important song in Madonna's discograp



The Best Albums of 2014

I did this ranking in Music Mania, so I decided to update it and make some changes. I can't believe Lana's album was so high and Taylor's album was so low.         15. Kylie Minogue - Kiss Me Once I don't like any Kylie album as an entire piece, but over the years I have always been looking forward to her albums and finding some pop gems. Kiss Me Once is one of the most solid pop albums this year. It has some really nice tunes, but also a couple of fillers. It isn't ex



Sailor Moon Crystal

I was surprised and excited when Sailor Moon Crystal was announced. I especially liked the idea that the anime will be exactly based on manga. I thought that nothing could go wrong and a qualitative show will be delivered. When the first pics appeared on the net, I didn't like the new looks of the characters that much, but it wasn't disaster and the main reason why I didn't like it that much was the original anime style  that I got used to. The worst thing in this remake was CGI animat



WTF Movies: The Princess Diaries

Welcome to the first WTF Movies post. This is some kind of a review/comment on certain movies and  messy moments. The Princess Diaries is just an another cliche/crap attack from Hollywood. Bad story, bad acting, bad characters... It was fun to watch, but a waste of time.   Mia is the main character. An unattractive and clumsy girl who finds out that she is a princess. Later she turned into pretty girl. Surprise, surprise. God forbid if this was a movie about an unattractive princess
