Today is a special day because three years ago today, a man named Thomas Sanders decided to post a video entitled “My True Identity.” Little did he know this video would become important for many people across his platform and the world. What had been a video for fun with characters based on his past Vines would later grow into a wonderful, complex series called Sanders Sides where Thomas would explore self-growth, different phases in life, and much more. In honor of the anniversary of the series, I would like to share how I came across Sanders Sides, why I enjoy the show, and how one person changed my life for the better.
Wow! What an amazing episode of Survivor tonight! First off, nice move to Lairo on blindsiding Vince. Unfortunately, Karishma now feels on-the-outs like before, so if you want her on your side, you need to do some work. Also, Dean and Chelsea, showmances often don't work in Survivor. The only time it did was Boston Rob and Amber, and ever since, showmances in Survivor only lead to trouble. You should know that. Sleeping next to people tells a lot about you and them. Beware of causing a showmance. Meanwhile at Vokai, the tribe made a big mistake. They left Jamal alone, and as a result, he got the idol. One big lesson in Survivor: DO NOT LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE, EVER! That is something that is proven to be a mistake, again and again. And, because you all left him alone, now he has the idol. Good job, now Jamal, who has little-to-no trust in any of you, has the idol, giving him the power to save himself and take out anyone he wants.
Wow! What an amazing episode of Survivor tonight! First, ok, it seems that "previously" isn't what starts the show anymore, now it's just a preview of what's to come at the beginning of each episode. Ok, that's kind of neat. Anyway, nice blindside, Vokai, Molly never saw it coming. And Jack seems ok about it—Jamal though, better watch out for him. He has officially turned into a rogue agent who will do anything now. He went from trusting ally, nothing bad happens to an "I'll slit your throat if it suits me" kind of player. Well, that is gonna be pretty interesting. Back at Lairo, it's men vs women and Vince doesn't trust Aaron, so he's likely with the women, and it's a pretty good strategy. Side with the winning team. And back at Vokai, Dan wants Noura out, thinking it'll be good for him and everyone else, which is something he wants to do. But he didn't realize the wrath of Jamal. And Jamal doesn't like Dan or his wanting to use Jamal for the vote. So, Jamal suggested getting Dan out to Janet, which she was open to. She spoke to Tommy, and now Jamal is a target of Tommy's for his unpredictability. It's dangerous. Back to Lairo, Karishma, who earlier was a bit uncomfortable since, as an Indian woman, she was swimming around with the women in her underwear, become more distressed when she accidentally cut herself and had to wait for the doctors to wrap up the wound, so she sat around and none of her tribe went to support her. So she became convinced that she was a target.
I got a chance to take a load off this weekend for some long overdue TV binge-watching, so I was able to finally sink my teeth into the first few episodes of Epix's new original series, Godfather Of Harlem. The series is three episodes in, and it's already one of the best things I've seen on television in 2019. Let's start with some of the all-world cast that's heading up this project:
Have you ever found yourself watching your favorite horror film and it has gotten to the point where the pretty girl is about to die? You know that she shouldn't go down that alley or into the woods, and she knows that the killer is there, but she decides to path directly into him or her. I don't know about you, but I genuinely get angry when I see such stupidity. I am not talking about when the pretty girl has no clue that the killer is lying in wait, but that she clearly understands that the killer is there and proceeds to scream or make noise to give away her position. I am not so naive to assume that those characters have the same training or tenacity as the killer, but if your life is in danger, and you simply need to sit still and not whimper, why in the hell would you make any noise?
Rumors that Marvel Studios are looking into bringing back Daredevil after its cancellation last year have recently been floating around the internet. If you’re a fan of my Vocal page, you know Netflix’s Daredevil is not only one of my favorite shows, but one of my favorite pieces of cinematic comic book storytelling ever created.
Recently, I have started watching Suits again. For those who have not seen a single episode of Suits it is about a law firm that hires a fraud as a lawyer and they knowingly did so. The reason that Mike Ross was hired was because Harvey Spector has never seen an associate know so much about the law, but of course Mike Ross has a photographic memory. Anyways, Harvey has the best assistant in the world. Donna knows the details of everyone and everything that goes around the office. She can be portrayed as an icon of feminism. Harvey is one of the best lawyers in the city and Donna is the equivalent of him. She is fiercely loyal to Harvey and sometimes she does have clouded judgement when it comes to him, but it happens rarely. Donna is often the glue that holds everyone together, and she gives the great advice even when it is not asked. Donna does her job and does it well. She also has the confidence that any woman should have, and her outfits are simply amazing.
To be honest, they’re all great.
Let me preface this by saying I initially had no intention of watching Batwoman on The CW. While I love superhero movies, and have recently watched a few comic-related series, Batman has been done numerous times and not always well. Michael Keaton has always been my favorite Batman. While I was all for the idea of a female version, I was afraid in the name of feminism something would get lost about the premise behind the superhero.
It was a bright and sunny day in the middle of August and ‘Hotlanta’ was living up to the hype!
Wow! What an amazing episode of Survivor tonight! First off, thank you to Lairo for voting out Ronnie. That was a great move. Sure, it pissed off Aaron, and Vince wasn't happy about getting votes, but hey, it got Ronnie out and I'm happy about that. Plus, it gives this women's alliance a chance to finally take some control, which I'm excited about. Oh, and there wasn't a Previously On... Survivor type moment, wow, alright, very interesting. As for Aaron, he may be all pissy, but he better at least act like he likes his tribe, otherwise they'll see him as just negativity and take him out anyway. Kind of like how Noura is at Vokai, yelling at the tribe how they don't do any work and hating on Molly, calling her, Jamal, and Jack the King, Queen, and Jack(literally) of the tribe that everyone praises, hoping to get a taste of their greatness. And then Molly spoke with Jamal about getting Noura out, soon after the tribe did yoga together, which most of the tribe didn't really enjoy. Meanwhile, Jason, who knows all out being on the outs, felt he owed Noura, so he spoke with her about how she's also on the outs.
