Holly Jolly Christmas Coins
So it’s the season of Christmas. The mass media loves to erase thanksgiving, but I digress.Yes it has a sorted history, but it is still funny to see. Also there’s no money in that holiday. So I understand why they move on to Christmas so fast. Now with all this holiday cheer, comes the music we listen to every year.The same standards we have on rotation during this time good or bad, sung by everyone under the sun. The one artist who’s taking this Christmas music thing to the bank is Mariah Carey! She’s the only one who really cashed in on this holiday every year. The queen of Christmas as she’s called, who by the way just extended her run at #1 with “All I Want For Christmas Is You”at 16 Weeks on the Billboard Global 200 Chart. This season is so synonymous with her who knows if we’ll ever get a “regular” album from her again. At this point she doesn’t need to, and my question is why aren’t other singers doing the same thing?
My Buffy the Vampire Slayer Ranking
Due to streaming this show has garnered a new fan base over the years since it’s aired and as someone who has watched this show in real time, it’s pretty cool to see that it still has its place. So obviously I’m only gonna focus on the seasons that aired and not the seasons that were written in comic form although I’ve read about what happened in those seasons and it would’ve been pretty cool to see that on TV but I’m sticking to the original show. I heard about them trying, to reboot this show a couple years ago. I don’t think that’s gonna happen anymore but if it ever did, I wonder how they would develop it. Or how the show would feel amongst a new generation. This is just my opinion it’s not meant to be the end all be all. So if anyone disagrees, then that’s fine you can make your own list if you want.This is just the way I see each season, so just have fun with it!
Ranking Every Janet Jackson Album.
Janet Jackson is one of my favorite artists and it being 30 years since The “janet” album, I thought it would be fun to do a little ranking of all her albums. I listen to some more than others, but I’m pretty familiar with all of them. So let’s get into it as we sit and wait for “Black Diamonds” if she is even still calling it that. If and when it comes I’m sure it’ll be just as engaging and enjoyable as the rest of these are. I’m mad that I didn’t get to see her this year on tour, but that’s neither here nor there. This ranking is mine and mine only I’m not speaking for everyone else just fyi. And we start with…
Why I Want to Live in Super Mario 64.
the way I titled this is kind of funny and me joking but when I was a kid and first got my Nintendo 64, Super Mario 64 was my favorite game to play. I found myself being good at playing it as well. Having been horrible at the other previous games .The title, nevertheless sums up how I felt about it, though the world of the game was so much more expansive for the effects were great. And each level or “board” as we used to say looked fun and It was. It wasn’t hard to imagine or want to be in this game when you have the imagination that I had as a kid. It was like you could go anywhere or do anything it was the first game I played on the 64 that made me feel that way.
My Top Horror Movies Part 2
Hey, welcome back! It’s time for the second part of this list. This one will be a little different. When we get down to the final ten I’ll be talking more in depth about each of these movies and why I chose them. I could do that for every movie here but who’s gonna read all that? What I will say again is these are just my movies that I love and I know some of these entries might make you scratch your head, but but don’t be an elitist 😁. It’s all subjective right?
My Top 100 Horror Movies! Part 1
so spooky season is upon us again,it's one of my favorite times of the year and so I figure why not share 100 of my favorite horror films that I like to watch every year even though I don’t get around to watching every single one. Because that’s a lot of movies, but these are the ones that I continuously come back to over and over again. Or that I like the most and some of them include recent titles, which is surprising.
I don't talk about this story a lot. It's one of the many things from my childhood, that we still Don't have complete clarity on. And since I'm a fan of such weird and scary things, what's better than telling a story about something crazy in my life? I recall the year vaguely it had to be 96 or 97. It was around Halloween time because we had a lot of decorations all over the house. it was enjoyable because that year we were able to get a lot to decorate. This happened on the weekend, and none of us kids were there at the time. Well for the record no one was there so thank god for that. I was visiting my grandparents I don't remember where my other siblings were, we were a troop (us kids) so we didn't always go to the same place on weekends thank god for family!! lol
"Halloween Ends" Thoughts.
So it's been a couple of weeks since this movie came out now and the reactions were shocking. Now I would not call this a review, but I had to give my thoughts on this movie and how polarizing it was. I really enjoyed what Davis Gordon Green has done with these movies I wasn't sure what was gonna come of them when I heard he would be making two more after Halloween 2018. I really liked what they all did to this Halloween movie especially. With the franchise coming back from the dead I was excited to see these characters return. I never thought we'd ever see Jaime lee Curtis do another one of these movies again. So seeing her back for these was a real treat. Even though there were some issues I had with "Kills" I still found it entertaining. At the end of the day, it was a good trilogy.
My favorite movies from every year of my life.
This was really fun to do so before I start I wanted to give shouts to both Zach Cherry and Cody Leach for the idea there are both youtubers fyi and you can them out if you want over there.As for this list, I had a few runner- ups for specific years, and I will lwt you know those now. For 1994 the runner up was “The Little Rascals”.For 1998 the runner up was “Snake Eyes” I’m del Palma Stan!, I can’t help it! For 2005 the runner up is “Rumor has it” one of my favorite Jen Aniston movies. 2011’s runner up is “Girl with The Dragon Tattoo”. 2012’s runner up is V-H-S, that’s one of the most unique horror movies I’ve ever seen. And the second sequel I enjoy as well.I had a runner up for 2019 but I don’t remember what movie that was.Ok now that I’ve done that, let me tell you why I’ve done this.I made this list because every movie on this list has had an affect on me the years they came out, and the subsequent years of course. Not the first five maybe because I was so young, but over the years they became favorites since. As with everyone else movies hold a special place in my heart, well I’ll say life cause saying heart sounds corny lol. I did another list that is similar to this one, but only with horror movies. I wrote it on my personal blog and I think I might put it on here in October. But back to this list I realized that a lot of my favorites have been action oriented, which is a genre I didn’t really like growing up. But now I can say it’s one of my favorites. Oh! My runner up for 2010 I just remembered is “Inception”. If enough people read this I might put it on YouTube, but if it flops oh well lol. My ultimate favorite movie on this list is my 1994 entry. Just like the other movies most of what I want to say about this movie is in the caption. I haven’t seen anyone do something like this on her. Since we can leave comments on her now , I would like to know if anyone has done this as well. it would be fun to read someone else’s list!! Maybe in a different genre even.
The Horror of Halloween(1978)
Halloween is the slasher of all slashers, although not the first it is certainly the best. This film has inspired others like it but none come close to this one. Maybe the new comes close, as it proves that once again that the simple route is the best. Halloween is basically about a psych patient Michael Myers; who killed his sister and boyfriend 15 years prior on Halloween. The reasoning behind that is still anyone's guess. He escapes just as Dr. Loomis and his colleague Marion Chambers come to take him to court. Now on paper it doesn't sound scary at all. But what make it so are five reasons I'm going to explain.
Loving 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S' While Black
Friends is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, from pop-ups and clothes inspired by Rachel, to other articles talking about how dated they think it is. So, with all this going on, I felt it was timely to talk about how conflicted this show made me feel when I was younger. I would tell people that, when they would ask what my favorite show was, usually those my age at the time. At first, I would get "Oh that's cool" responses. Then, the older I got it, turned into "Oh, really? Why?" turned-up-nose responses. I also got the "How is that your favorite show? You're black." responses. So, I just stopped talking about it as much, and enjoyed it alone. I thought at that time, people were just teasing me back then, or trying to make me feel like a sellout in some way.
