Song Reviews

05 July 2018 - 03:26 AM

*Clap* song *clap* reviews. I couldn't come up with a fancy title, but this is basically something I've been working on for months even if it doesn't seem like it, trust me you can ask Cara or Kate. I have a very uhh unique way of explaining things and these are a few songs reviewed by yours truly. I'd describe them as rough drafts of thoughts, written down and printed for your entertainment. I'll warn you, I'm a sucker for the oldies.

So that's that, my eyes are dry and my knuckles are buckled. You probably think I'm more insane than I was when I started and that's okay. I was planning on doing a hell of a lot more, variety of all genres etc but I've realised that that's a huge ask and would take me years. I did want to take suggestions from you all but I don't really know how well I'd be able to do that, I have to be in the right kind of mood for it and switched on. Hence why it took so long. 

 

I do want to encourage you to do your own, the more creative and entertaining the better. Hell I'll even draw an incredible masterpiece in MS Paint for the best one. I know you have favourite songs you could definitely write about and have some fun with.  ^_^

 

Much love and appreciation for reading, take care.

I'm outta here, peace out.

 


Fame and Contributions Compared to Actions

19 March 2018 - 10:12 AM

Where is the line for you to look past what someone has done? The biggest example for this would probably be Michael Jackson with the whole kid thing, usually people become so outraged that it essentially ends the person's career but that never happened. He's still regarded as the king of pop, and because of how good his music is, how much he contributed, I pretty much shrug all the bad press off. 

 

In rap people praise full blown drug addicts and murderers more so than those who do good. 

 

If you're a huge fan of Beyonce, what would it take for you to stop listening to her music and praising her like she's a queen? Or maybe you find out that Elon Musk has been running a dog fighting pit for the past 10 years, would you still continue to appreciate his work? Take your favourite person or someone you really admire, how much can they get away with before you finally lose all respect for them? 


Wrestling

01 October 2017 - 10:31 AM

I haven't watched wrestling in over 13 years or something like that, and while going down the rabbit hole on youtube, somehow ended up on old WWE matches. This peaked my curiousity, so I decided to watch Raw and Smackdown to see how much it's changed and I took down notes of my thoughts.

 

Smackdown

 

Pros:

- The New Day are pretty awesome. They had me laughing when they sat in the crowd eating popcorn and booty-o's. Then when the Usos come over to talk smack, one of the guys pulled a microphone out of the popcorn bucket to talk back. Outta the popcorn bucket.

 

- Hearing the Stone Cold "What?" chant being still around. It's a pretty shitty chant to do when someone has a pause when talking so really it's a negative but the nostalgia that came from hearing it was pretty cool.

 

- Shinsuke Nakumura. Probably has the best entrance, I still have the music stuck in my head. Basically a Japanese wrestler, dresses like a rockstar, does weird dance shit, is generally pretty weird, I love it.

 

- Randy Orton literallly RKO'd outta nowhere. He's still a boring wrestler but it made me laugh.

 

- The divas have more diversity. This was pretty awesome to see, we all know Vince McMahon has an infatuation with model looking girls that he can somehow creepily work into a storyline with him that ends up with him making out with them, or some sexual shit. But there was a more plus sized wrestler, and an alternative looking girl, you know like slightly goth vibes like the suicide girls models. That was sweet to see.

 

- Throwback adverts. Sometimes they'll play a throwback video during the adverts, like the moment John Cena made his debut against Kurt Angle. It's a nice little touch.

 

- Undertaker. The living legend. The venue went dark, his music starts playing and I get goosebumps. A dark figure emerges, starts walking down to the ring and i'm getting a rush of emotion, seeing one of my favourite wrestlers for the first time in so many years. Then it turns out it's not Undertaker, it's Dolph Ziggler impersonating and dressing like him. I got trolled heavy. Dolph you son of a bitch. 

 

- Shane McMahon is still around. Last time I saw him he was young, wearing baggy clothes and throwing himself off of things. Now he's old as hell, bigger, and has a full head of grey hair. It's still awesome to see him still around, and he'll be having a hell in a cell match soon too.

 

- Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Two wrestlers I had no idea who they were, but they were being hyped up during the show to have the top match of the night, I didn't really give a shit they didn't look anything special, just average wrestlers. But then the match happened and it was the best match of the night by far. Most matches during the TV shows the wrestlers play very safe, nothing big, and you can really see how fake it is (obviously). But these two put on a hell of a match, Sami hurled himself over the ropes into Kevin, Kevin powerbombed Sami onto the edge of the ring, to the point where even I felt the impact and tensed up. Good shit.

 

Cons:

 

- Adverts. So many fucking adverts. I'm pretty sure I watched more adverts than the actual program. I know they have to set the matches up and get ready, that i'm completely fine with. But they showed adverts during a match, the match shrunk, adverts took up 2/3 of the screen, and the rest of the screen was split in half of the match in a tiny box, and the Smackdown logo. How the fuck are you going to play ads during the match, TWICE. What the fuck America. 

 

- Fast food adverts. Every 3rd advert was a fast food advert, the rest was insurance. I saw adverts for KFC, Burger King, Mcdonalds, Arby's, Taco Bell, about 3 different pizza chains. Jesus fucking christ. I hate to think how many fast food adverts I watched that night.

 

- The whole show was just a promo for the upcoming Hell In A Cell event. After every match the winner would grab a microphone and declare who they're going to fight at Hell In A Cell, or someone would come out and challenge the winner. It became very predictable, and pretty boring.

 

- Bad humour. When wrestlers have gone off-script and done their own promos, it's usually given some of the best laughs or best promos out there. Unfortunately there's not many that are allowed to go off-script, and thus we get given some awful shit to watch. Jinder Mahal is the champion of... something, I don't know there's the US championship, the WWE Universe championship, just so many belts that it kinda demeans the worth of a belt. It's the Oprah Show now bitch, you get a belt, you get a belt, and you get a belt! Ahem, anyways Jinder and his two goons were in the ring, Jinder would say "Here's Nakamura's face after I win", there'll be a pretty normal picture of Nakamura, the three in the ring would laugh heavily at it, and repeat this several times. It was painfully unfunny.

 

I'm not even going to mention Roman Reigns. Anyways does anyone still watch wrastling? After so long the format is still exactly the same as it was 15 years ago.

 

Although there was something fresh and exciting in the wrestling world. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, the Sharknado of wrestling, made by the widely beloved Hardy Boyz.

What's New?

24 August 2017 - 07:03 AM

So I logged into my account after not playing for two years, and i'm struggling to catch up on what i've missed :p I see there's a new breed that looks like a genetic experiment gone very wrong. What's the most valuable patterns now or whatever they're called? 

 

If anyone can briefly catch me up on the last two years it would be greatly appreciated :p


Opposites Attract

23 July 2017 - 08:26 PM

[pretend there's a gif of magnets or something here. We're low budget tonight]

 

Or don't they? This is something I've been meaning to post for a while simply because i'm interested, I was gonna put it in the debate section but I figured it's more of a discussion than anything.

 

So my question isn't do opposites attract? But more a question of how far does it go? Terrible wording I know but i'm struggling to put thoughts into words, forgive me :p I'll try explain below.

 

So the age old saying is opposites attract, then people started putting that towards people and relationships. When it comes to a loved one, what's your opinion of how well you can get along with someone who is vastly different to you? It could be that they're a health nut and you're a couch potato, they could be a redneck while you're more of a chav, they're a child of god but you enjoy indulging in some satanic rituals. What's the limit where the line is drawn for you to love being with them, and for how long before it becomes too much of a problem?

 

Also the same goes for being friends with someone, i'd assume that there would be a lot more tolerance for their interests, habits, etc.

 

If you took this absolutely perfect graph below as reference, with the X axis being relationship length, and the Y axis being difference between you two. At the furthest point of the relationship length, how far up on the difference scale could you go? Or something like that, I had an idea, I was going with it and now i've just blanked.
