Let’s Talk: The Night Begins To Shine Episodes (Part 2)

How’s everyone’s week been so far!? We’re close to Friday which is the end of the week, but also the beginning of the weekend if you think about it as well, hope it’s all been good for you all!! Alright so I might have a few things that i’m going to be writing about today, not entirely sure, we’ll see once we get there, one of things I do want to talk about is the continuation to the first part of this post where I discussed Teen Titans Go and it’s two episodes on the Night Begins To Shine, obviously we already covered the first introduction episode where we were introduced to the song……

So without further ado, let’s talk about the second episode……so before we get into this post, if you haven’t watched any of these episodes before that’s fine, no worries, I explained a little bit of the first episode in part 1 to this one so if you want to check it out you can find it here: Let’s Talk: Teen Titans GO (Night Begins To Shine Episodes) now on to part 2…..

Now i’ll do my best to brief what the second episode was about and keep it from going over (i’m going to try anyway) Alright so we’re back with the titans in the titan tower where they feeling a little bored not knowing what to do with themselves, Cyborg then enters the room in his Cyborg way and the titans, (desperately) ask him, well hint at him to play a specific song to send the blah’s away for a while…..now Cyborg not quite “understanding” what the titans mean (he totally knew what they were talking about)

Tell them to sing the song to refresh him memory, they do and then soon enter the world of B.E.R. while in the world, they soon later meet the villain who happens to be an evil dragon and he wants to take the song to turn the world that B.E.R. created into his own ruling. Now Cyborg true to protecting the song doesn’t allow it, making the dragon not so happy,

Cyborg and the rest of the Titans do everything they can to keep the dragon away from the song, but the dragon (don’t know his name) just won’t give up and continues to go after them until they surrender the song to him. Now this is where things start to get a little more interesting, I promise.

So after a good chase around, something ends up happening, I believe the dragon opens some kind of portal, causing the rest of the titans to become separated, leaving only Cyborg stuck and left behind within the world that B.E.R. created and Beast Boy, Robin, Raven and Starfire, back at the Titans tower without their friend……

Now Beast Boy is a little more distraught about his best friend being stuck in the other world while they are back in their’s and he even attempts to sing the song that allows them access to the world, but it doesn’t quite work so they try to think of another way to re enter the world, where Robin comes up with an idea to have someone else recreate the song, introducing us to a few guests that could of help and those guest are wait for it…..

CeeLo Green and…..Fall Out Boy!! Yes they make a guest appearance on the show and to be honest it’s actually pretty cool, but anyway the Titans find their way to these guys and ask them if they can sing the song so they can get their friend out of the alternative reality, Ceelo thinks their crazy and calls security on them and Fall Out Boy, well…..Pete is thrilled and cool about it, but the other members…..not so much, leaving the Titans to go back to the drawing board in finding another way to save Cyborg.

Knowing that Beast Boy is still upset over Cyborg, The Titans try helping to cheer him up, but it’s not really working, so Beast Boy decides he needs to find himself and so he goes on a little journey……it seemed to be going alright, up until a pigeon smacked against his windshield out of nowhere and at that in the middle of nowhere….he calls the Titans and see if they can help him, but he doesn’t really know where he is……so they can’t really do much, but no freight, soon appears a tow truck offering to help him out,

Things start to get a little more interesting when we later learn that the tow truck guy, happens to be one of the members of B.E.R. in hiding, Beast Boy tries to convince him to help him get his friend back at first he declines, but Beast Boy begs him once again and later agrees to help him save his friend,

Fast Forward, Beast Boy brings Billy (a.k.a William. J Regan) to the Titan tower for the titans to meet, at first the Titans think he’s just some drifter that Beast Boy brought to them, but he later explains that he’s actually the lead singer of B.E.R. and from there they also later find the other two members of the band, they transform with there song and the other titans along with B.E.R. find their way back inside the alternate reality where they come face to face with the villain once again and also are reunited with their friend Cyborg……but it’s not a happy ending yet,

because the dragon ends up capturing the rest of the titans and B.E.R. threatening to take the song if not by will, he was going to force the song out of them……which he does, causing the world to take a different form the titans and B.E.R. unsure and doubtful of how they’re going to defeat the dragon to save this reality they’re in, get a boost of encouragement from the help of Cyborg who reminds them to believe in the power of music and with his faith, he summons both CeeLo and Fall Out Boy, where they too transform,

CeeLo into an Ice Bear and Fall Out Boy into Cars, but they also become a giant Robot (probably as a nod to Transformers) they all come together doing everything they can to take down the evil dragon, but he’s still determined to get the full power of the song to take over the land,

Even thought he believes the song to be his, B.E.R. let’s him know that the song may belong to him, but not them and they then create another song which is called Rise Up to stop the dragon and bring peace back to the land and while singing the song, they called upon the prophecy a.k.a. Sweet whose seen as the protecter to the alternative reality and with the help of her as well as Cyborg, they not only defeat the dragon,

but also restore peace and harmony back to the world and regain the rights to play the song, once again, B.E.R. also decide to stay within the world to make sure that it’s kept safe and protected so that no other evil entity goes and harms the creatures and people living there……and that’s the ending of this part 2 post!! I hope it wasn’t too long, I did do my best to keep it brief,

Hopefully it went alright, but yeah that’s all for this post, but do hold on to that ending, if you thought that was interesting and crazy…..just wait until we get to the movie special, now that was something……for now….stay tuned!!

Let’s Talk: High School Musical 2 (13 Year Anniversary)

How’s everyone’s Monday going so far!? Hope it’s treating you all well and isn’t giving you too much of a time!! If today’s been a little shifty throughout your day hopefully a little nostalgia might help, now I know not everyone is a big fan of the High School Musical movies franchise (also series now apparently) but when I was younger, High School Musical and anything Disney really, well it was all I really watched at the time, now not so much,

but I still like to enjoy all the old shows I grew up with within the Disney Channel as well as most of the movies, if you couldn’t tell by the title already today we’re going to be discussing the anniversary of the second High School Musical Movie, it was today August 17th when the movie premiered in 2007 making it 13 years old today…….

13 today, how crazy is that!? I remember when this movie first premiered and how excited I was to be watching it, for those who have watched all the High School Musical movies, I believe this one was everyone’s favorite between the first and third movie, all the movies to me we’re great so asking me if I have a favorite well, i’m not sure if i’d be able to answer that really!? I think for a while anytime Summer came around the first song that people thought about was “What Time Is It!?”

I mean this movie was pretty much a Summer theme tradition to watch whenever Summer Vacation was a go, to be fair i’d say High School Musical 2 had one of the best soundtracks within the High School Musical franchise, I mean you had Bet On It, I Don’t Dance, Work It Out and so fourth, but besides the soundtrack, High School Musical 2 is probably one of the best movies of High School Musical, although you can’t forget about the first movie that introduced HSM and of course the great send off that the last movie gave us of the characters we’ve grown to love and still love in fact!!

I’m sure that most of us probably still listen to all the soundtracks from each movie, I won’t tell you that I don’t because that’d be a lie…..I actually have a few songs from each movie that I still listen to, til this day not all the time, but when I feel I need to or just cause I want to, in fact I just recently checked out the soundtrack (all of them) as well as purposely going to listen to certain songs within this month so yeah i’m still a fan of HSM!!

That all said though, the fact that today marks 13 years since this movies original release, is mind-blowing!! Although I know it’s to be expected for anniversaries of movies and albums and that to come, I mean if something is released on specific day it’s bound to have an anniversary one way or another right!?

Still though, it’s always amazing when you know you’ve watched something or maybe listened to something for the first time and then years go by and sometimes if it’s something that’s important or just meant a lot to you,

it’s amazing how you still remember the very first time it appeared to you and maybe what you were doing in that moment when it happened or even where you were, it’s the details of it or with it to where that feeling of I remember this…..comes from, it may not mean much or be as big of a deal to a lot of people, but to you and those who shared that same feeling with you in that moment, it can mean everything and that’s what’s so great about it, that experience of getting to see or hear something for the first time!!

I don’t think there’s ever going to be a moment where we’re not still surprised with that kind of thing, but that’s all I have to say I just wanted to share this, HSM was a big part of my childhood, I grew up with it and still grow up with it……I don’t care how old I get I know that i’ll still quote and sing all of the songs when it comes to these kind of movies!!

Let’s Talk: Teen Titans GO (Night Begins To Shine Episodes)

How’s everyone’s Friday going so far!? Alright so originally I was going to give my thoughts on the Teen Titans Movie Special The Night Begins To Shine 2, however as I was writing this post, I realized there’s some stuff I need to explain first just so it’s not confusing, so we’re gonna do this in parts and try and explain things as best as possible!!

Now you might be wondering what is Teen Titans Go!? Well I don’t know really…..I guess you can call it a spin off of the original Teen Titans show, but more obnoxious, weird and just not Teen Titans…..that being said, it’s not that bad of a show if i’m being honest, there are some episodes that I like, some I don’t mind and some that I could care less for, the good thing about this show though is, it knows what it is and it never tries to be like it’s original counter part which had more of a serious tone to it, there was a lot more action in that show then there is in Teen Titans Go and the story of it, you just connected to very well….Teen Titans Go on the other hand well….

It’s just full of nonsense most of the time, but for some reason….it works, I guess and I think that’s what the writers of the show wanted, they didn’t want another Teen Titans show and so they took aspects to what they originally created with Teen Titans and turned it into what you wouldn’t expect the show to be and so instead of it being a serious toned show and everything in between that we saw in Teen Titans, they made it more less serious and a little more out there and by out there, I mean it’s more randomized so a lot of the stuff that goes on, can makes sense, but also doesn’t have to makes sense, they had a little more fun with it pretty much!!

That aside, today we’re going to be talking about the first not really episode to introduce The Night Begins To Shine which was the episode 40% 40% 20% (yes that’s the actual episode name) now this might get a little confusing so please bare with me as I try and explain in the best way possible although we’re not talking about the movie right now,

I’ll explain it a little so that way when we do get to The Movie Special it’ll make a bit more sense….so the reason the movie special is called the Night Begins To Shine 2……is because we don’t get to the “first” part until the second part of The Night Begins To Shine…..I hope you’re still following,

It makes sense if you’ve watched the two part episodes, but to put it in the shortest way possible, 40% 40% 20% is pretty much like an intro preview before the introduction to the first real part of the Night Begins To Shine episode, hope this is all making sense so far!? To go into the preview intro episode, we have Cyborg one of main Teen Titans who is a little obsessed with this song called: The Night Begins To Shine by the band B.E.R.

(Who are actual artists, by the way) in this episode we’re pretty much being introduced to the song first, long story short the rest of The Titans (Robin, Beast Boy, Raven and Starfire) are kind of becoming a little tired of the song,

They try and tell cyborg to give it a little rest and listen to something else, Cyborg loving the song too much doesn’t want to and so the Titans ask him what’s so special about it, he explains and then takes them all to this alternative world where they discover the land of B.E.R. (that’s what I call it) they admire it for a while, trying to figure out how them being there is possible and Cyborg tells them that “Music has the power to transform”

That’s kinda the motto of these specific episodes, but Robin then stops the song bringing them all back to their world and telling Cyborg he gotta stop playing the song so much, the rest of the Titans agree and tell him that he can’t do the simplest things without it, Robin even puts him to the test and doesn’t allow him to go on their mission with them until he can prove that he doesn’t need the song to do things, a little later on in the episode the rest of the Titans ends up getting captured by one of the villains and it’s up to Cyborg to go and save them, how does he do it!?

By becoming inspired by……a Hawk building a nest for itself while singing the song that Cyborg is obsessed with, which gives him that sense of encouragement that he needs, to save his friends, he defeats the villain even though they destroyed his cassette tape, but it’s okay because his friends realized the importance of the song to Cyborg and they help him to free them and that is the first preview of the Night Begins To Shine, before the actual episode!!

I like this episode, because not only do we get a song that’ll be re introduced a few times, but we also get to see a different version of the Teen Titans characters, that I feel is similar to the art style of the original Teen Titans, not saying their the same, it’s just cool to see the transitioned art styles within these episodes!! Now although I like this episode,

I’d say the second first real episode of the Night Begins To Shine, i’d say that’s my favorite one, because this time, not only is the song back, but we also meet B.E.R. for the first time and we get to go more into the story and world of B.E.R and learn more on the origins of the song as well and learn how powerful it actually is……so that’s the “first” part of The Night Begins To Shine, well the introduction of it anyway, the second part to the episode,

Which is the first part, explaining it all, that episode will be discussed in the next part of this post and from there we will be discussing the movie special, I might combined the two, have the the second episode be part 2 of this post and just have the movie be the third and final part of everything…..we’ll see and work it out from there, I just felt that I needed to explain a bit, before going straight into the movie special, it would’ve been confusing had I not decided to do that, hopefully it made sense, but if I don’t get to the second part today just know it’ll be up soon, until then, I hope you’re all enjoying the day and I hope you all have a nice weekend!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Let’s Talk: Favorite K.K. Slider Songs (Part 2)

So as you all may know, i’m a pretty big fan of the Animal Crossing series, it’s one of my favorite games EVER!! I pretty much play it more than any of my other games to be fair and i’ve got a few i’ve still yet to start…..but today we aren’t talking about the game itself, but the music of the series, well more like K.K. Slider songs, because who doesn’t love K.K. Slider!?

Now some of you might remember, but if you don’t I actually wrote a first part to this three months ago which I just looked at and it turns out that uhhh….that was yesterday so the fact that i’m writing the second part to this today is a little crazy, the timing is a little late, but only by a day……but if you want to read the first list of my favorite K.K. Slider songs you can find that here: 3 K.K. Slider Songs I Never Get Tired Of (Songs From Animal Crossing)

On to the second part of this list, this list might actually be a little different, because instead of it being songs I never get tired of, it’s going to be K.K. Slider songs that i’ve either grown to like or are also some of my favorites that I didn’t get to talk about before……are you ready for this, I hope so because we’re about to begin starting with……

K.K. Bossa

By the way this list is in no particular order or anything, the reason I started with K.K. Bossa though is because I have this one playing in my characters room so I thought let’s start with that one first!! How can I explain K.K. Bossa…..well I like this one because it’s very relaxing and has such a nice sound to it, there’s just something about it that I can really appreciate and it’s actually become one of my favorites, it’s just a good song!!

Next Up……K.K Stroll

Okay so this one was one of those songs that I didn’t mind, but it wasn’t really a favorite either…..however, I gotta say that K.K. Stroll is a song that has grown on me, it’s funny because last weekend when K.K. Slider was in town (on my Island) I requested this song, but I was hoping to find it through the town hall of my New Horizons Island and after looking for it for a good while, I ended up asking K.K. to sing it and long story short the same day I requested this song…….you’ll never guess what song was in the town hall…..yeah K.K. Stroll…..I was like are you serious of course you’d be in the town hall the day I go requesting you…..

All that aside, this one did end up growing on me, it’s a pretty catchy song and also a pretty good one too, would I say it’s a favorite now!? Not really, but it’s one I can also appreciate for it’s catchiness, plus I just feel it to be one of those tunes that just carries your worries away and I like that!!

Last, but not least……kinda……Drivin’

There’s a reason I said kinda……we’ll get to it in a moment, but first let’s talk this K.K. Slider song…..firstly….it’s a new one that was introduced to New Horizons and I think it’s a lot of people’s favorite, the reason it’s on my list is because I love when my Villagers sing it, I said that, but really I love when my villagers sing in general, it’s just so cute and sometimes is at the best or not best moments and it just makes you happy…….but back to the song

It’s actually a really nice song, i’ve found myself humming along to it to myself a few times, just like all or shall I say most of K.K. Slider songs it’s pretty darn catchy and has a very nice groove to it, it might be a favorite actually, I even have it playing near my town hall entrance way, it just fits there which is why I have it playing there, but it’s pretty sweet when my villagers sing along to it as it’s playing, by villagers I mean mainly Roscoe and Tabby they sing the most on my Island, Tabby probably more….but

It’s a good song and I can see and understand why everyone loves it so much!!

Now on to the song that the kinda came from…..

it’s actually a non existing one and is considered an “error” song, but it come from one of the older games of the Animal Crossing Series Wild World and no it’s not Wild World itself, although I have been trying to get K.K. Slider to sing it for me just so I can hear it, but the two times I tried……it didn’t work, but to explain a bit…..when you ask K.K. to sing Wild World, there’s a chance you might actually hear it, but it’s not a guarantee, I think you’ll have to try a few times before you randomly just comes across it……if you do great!!

However if you request it and you find that it’s not quite what you were looking for……he’ll sing, well so far i’ve only heard two filler songs…..maybe it was just one, but I feel like it was two…could be more for all I know, but if he’s not singing the Wild World theme or a song within Wild World…..he’ll be singing a different tune and I can’t tell you which one it is, because it doesn’t “exist” so to speak

When I tried the error song trick I guess you can say, it was the second attempt song the first time trying to get it that was my favorite one and I know how confusing that sounds because i’m talking about a song that you can’t even get from K.K. Slider, but it’s so good that last weekend when I tried the Wild World trick again that when I didn’t get it……I wasn’t actually upset because he ended up singing the song I like anyway, i’m going to have to try and record the song when I hear it, probably from my camera when i’m playing the game, i’d screen record it from my switch, buuuut…..I got no room…..yeah i’m going to have to fix that, because it happens all the time

but even though the song i’m talking about doesn’t technically exist in the Animal Crossing world, I still love it, I can’t actually explain it, but when I hear it probably tonight since K.K. Slider’s on my Island i’ll update this post and share it with you guys, it might look weird, but that’s okay….i’ll also let you know if I do end up hearing the Wild World theme or a song from there

P.S. reason K.K. Slider’s on my Island today is because there’s a bug off happening on my Island tomorrow K.K. usually shows up on Saturday’s, but because of the event he’s there today, which I don’t mind, I just gotta remember to play so I can get a new tune from him also it’s actually my very first bug off event since i’ve started New Horizons so i’m pretty excited for it……not that that’s important, but I still wanted to state it in case it was asked…..

but As Blathers (the owl who owns the Museum) would say and there you have it…….that’s my list to this part two post, you might see a third part to this….there was a few more songs that came to my head as I was writing this post, I actually ended up moving one of the songs that was meant to be here to be added in the most likely next part……so keep an eye out for it, you never know when it’s going to pop up….probably a month from now like this one here…….but it might also be a little later who knows,

For now I hope you all are having a good Friday and that you enjoy the rest of your weekend, stay well, stay safe and have a good one!!

All the Love ❤ ❤

Let’s Talk: Camp Rock (12 Year Anniversary)

Now I don’t know if most of you will remember this movie, but this was literally my childhood days and it’s kinda crazy to think that this movie came out 12 years ago, not 12 years today exactly, it’s 12 year anniversary was actually this past Saturday, I was planning to talk about this the day of, but never got around to it, but it’s been 3 days, so it’s not that bad!!

Reason i’m talking about it today, is because I just finished watching the movie, now if i’m being honest, I don’t actually watch movies or tv for that matter very often and if I do it’s for a very short while, however movies are the things that I watch the least, but I figured that it’s been a while since I watched the movie, I can’t actually tell you how long it’s been…..

Let’s just say it’s been a long time…….and i’ll tell you rewatching this movie, it still felt the same, but it also felt different at the same time, some scenes still hold up and some……could’ve been better, but at the time, it was okay for what it was I guess……the music however…….well it hasn’t changed that much, but there are some that I have re listened to, that i’ve gained opinions on, some are the same and some well……how I felt about it then, I still feel about it now only there’s some things mixed in……..it’ll make sense when I recored on it to explain don’t worry, this post is about the movie though

There’s a lot to it that, I don’t quite get now with certain scenes within the movie……also I didn’t realize how much it actually got to me, re watching it I felt quite annoyed at some parts, mainly with Tess and different things that happened in the movie, but than you have some good classic scenes i’m sure some of you might know the ones, that said, this movie started giving me a headache because I was like “are you serious” some moments just really bothered me, but nonetheless, it’s still a good movie!!

Yeah it’s pretty cheesy most of the time, but it’s an early 2000s movie so what do you expect right!? On a good note, we got a miniature Demi Lovato here and the Jo Bros (Jonas Brothers for those that don’t know) a.k.a. Connect 3…..don’t know why that was their name now that i’m thinking about it, guess they were inspired by connect 4 the game or something!?

Yes I know it was because there were 3 of them, but they could’ve thought of a different name i’m sure…..connect 3 it was though, not that it was bad, just really!?…..alright then…..you know what I mean!? I gotta say though, my favorite performance in this movie has to be Here I Am, that song always got to me when watched it as a young one…….I don’t even have to watch the movie though for it to deeply feel it, it’s just an overall great song,

I’ll talk more on that later though, I do have some other favorite performances in the movie like This Is Me…..of course, Play My Music……others I can’t quite think of right now, but still there’s some good ones there, but I can’t believe it’s been 12 years since this movie premiered like it doesn’t seem that long ago, but it definitely is which is the mad part!!

Like I remember when it first came out, well when I first watched it on tv anyway…..which was the premiere, but you get what I mean……I could probably go on about this topic, but i’ll keep it short and sweet for now and save some other thoughts on it later, that is if I have anymore thoughts on it, i’m sure I do….but I won’t make it long, I just wanted to briefly talk on it, and share a few thoughts about it……even though there’s some parts in this movie I laugh at now with how cringe it can get and so on,

I still have soft spot for it and enjoy it vey much so, it was my childhood so obviously nostalgia for it is going to be there, plus it’s got some of my favorite songs in it along with Demi and the Jonas Brothers….did I mention that already!? I probably did haha…..

Have you ever watched Camp Rock, if so what are some of your favorite songs from the movie!?

All The Love ❤ ❤

Let’s Talk: Craig Of The Creek (Musical Special)

How’s everyone doing this Wednesday afternoon, hope you’re all well and doing alright…..now before we get to our topic here, I just want to let some thoughts out first, I don’t know what kind of day today is, but I just feel my stress levels are trying to peak their way through today for some reason,

So to keep at a calm level, I thought i’d talk about a specific episode to one of my favorite shows that I actually spoke about before on here called Craig The Creek and give some thoughts on it, in this post we’re going to be focused on the musical special episode of it, titled:

This special is about a week old now, but when I first saw it, I was just loving it, Craig Of The Creek is already a great show with it’s regular episodes, but this musical special was probably one of my favorite episodes to watch, it’s just so fun and full of song, I mean who doesn’t love that!?

Before I go on and give some thoughts on it, i’m just going to state that when it comes to tv shows and episodes from those tv shows, i’m not expert, so i’m not going to go into “critic mode” or anything like that, I just want to share my thoughts on it and try and explain what I loved about it!!

Now to give a brief summary of some sort…….it’s a musical episode so it’s a little different towards your regular COTC episodes, however this special was just very entertaining to me, every song was just wonderfully done, love JP’s high notes, he really went for it!! I also like when the Creek kids sang in harmony together it was nice, this whole episode was just full of a good time, you can tell that each song had some kind of inspiration from certain musicals, some that I know and some I might know, but might not.

To give you guys a little look into what the episode was, we have Craig and his friends, but manly Craig, stuck inside his home, wishing he was at the Creek, but isn’t able to go due to it raining cats and dogs outside and so the whole episode he’s having to use his imagination or get creative on what kind of things him and his friends would be doing at the Creek if it wasn’t raining……and so you see within the episode, he imagines finding a random key and wondering what it goes to and wanting to know the origins of it.

Him and his friends are going around and asking everyone they know at the creek (not really) what the key goes to and where it came from, things like that, but reminder (not that you forgot) it’s a musical based episode and so they’re pretty much singing everything they do in it, there are some speaking moments, but the animations and weird moments that happened within the special is just something I can’t even explain, I mean MORTIMER……even sings and for those who don’t know who Mortimer is,

Well he’s Kelsey’s parakeet bird, but Mortimer isn’t just a regular bird, there’s more to him than meets the eye, he’s Kelsey’s life pet companion, her partner in crime, he’s always with Kelsey!! he may be small, but that parakeet is a true warrior……I know that probably sounded weird, but it’s the truth,

He never leaves her side unless it’s important, but the point is, it can get interestingly weird at times, but in good way i’d say, I loved everything about it, it’s just a good episode and definitely a favorite, there’s a few songs from it that I like a lot, but overall, the whole special was just the best!!

I’m glad it exist, but that’s pretty much it, I don’t want to spoil the episode too much, hopefully I didn’t spoil it, but if you like adventurous type of cartoons that pretty much always almost breaks the fourth wall within certain episodes definitely check it out, it’s the best in my opinion and this specific episode was just a hoot to watch I loved every moment of it!!

Since we’re on the topic of Craig Of The Creek…….I went and recorded a video the other day talking about some of my favorite episodes from the series, mainly the new episodes that came out recently, i’m probably going to do a part 2 not sure when though, but eventually, I haven’t yet posted it, i’ll be doing that later tonight, when I do though expect to have this post be updated with the link later on as well, but that is it for this post……

Update: I didn’t actually post the video the day I said I would, but I did post it, sorry for the later update sharing the video though, if you want to check it out, you can find it here: Favorite Craig Of The Creek Episodes

If you would like to read my other post where I talk about why I love this show, just go on over to the link here: Let’s Talk: Cartoon Shows And One Of My Favorites!!

Let’s Talk New Horizons (Animal Crossing)

Alright so I have attempted a few times at writing about Animal Crossing New Horizons and those times…..well……I just never quite finished them, but we will finally go and share some things with it today, now before I go and express on Animal Crossing New Horizons I just want to say that I was planning on writing a different post first, buuut then something happened and this one is going to be first written instead……..

Okay so New Horizons what can I say about it!? Well i’ve been playing this game for about two months now, I started on my Island adventure on the 11th of April even though the game made it’s debut on the 20th of March, for those of you that don’t know or have never played Animal Crossing it’s pretty different from the other Animal Crossing games we had before, however the heart of it hasn’t changed that much, so even though the series has evolved into something different instead of a town, it’s now an island,

the concept and everything that makes Animal Crossing is still there!! Now I can talk a whole lot about this game and the different things with it, but than we’d probably be here all day or so and i’m sure you all have important things to tend to so I won’t do that, I must say one of my favorite things about this game is not only the moments that you’d get from it,

but also the bonds and connections that you develop with your fellow islanders/villagers, it’s odd thing to explain, but if you ever played any of the Animal Crossing games than you know what I mean….. sometimes you find that you instantly are drawn to a villager without really knowing why and so instead of questioning it you just go with it, than you have those villagers that you know seem nice, but don’t really feel a huge connection to so you kinda just keep them where they are, as well as those that don’t really appeal to you all that much (a.k.a you don’t like them)

Then there’s the soft spot villagers/islanders as I like to call them where at first you don’t know what to feel when you come across them and so out of curiosity you invite them to your island so you can get to know them a bit more and you don’t think they’d be someone you’d become attach to or at least feel attach to, but you keep them anyway because you learn that you like them and so after having them around your island for a while,

One day you come across them and they’re having some deep thoughts and you’re curious to what they’re thinking about, could be anything (literally) and as you approach them…..you find that they’re thinking of moving, now in this moment you’re not sure whether to let them leave or have the stay, part of you wants them to stick around, but then there’s that part that…..doesn’t mind if they leave……and so after thinking on it for a bit,

You tell them…..they can go and you feel fine with your decision to have them venture out towards another Island……but then there’s this moment where you’re having a heart to heart and they thank you for being their friend and it’s in that moment you realize…..they truly meant a lot to you and you feel that deeply……..I say all this because well….. I had that moment today with a purple cat that you might all know very well named Bob,

He asked to move today and it was actually a pretty tough decision, didn’t think it’d be, but it was and i’m going to admit it…..I got a little emotional, but it’s because of what he said, I didn’t expect it, but as cheesy and lame as it is, it got me and I felt like such a nerd that a video game, better yet a villager that I never had before made me emotional….like…..WHY BOB!!!

I’m never going to forget this day….but most importantly, i’m never going to forget bob, he’s just a snack loving, bug friending……don’t ask (there’s actually a few of them to be fair) purple cat who was a delight to have on my island and to be honest….i’m going to miss him and his interesting character personality, he was one of my 3 villager move ins after playing for a while and i’m glad I got to get to know him so thank you bob, for being bob…i’m sure i’ll see you around eventually, for now you go enjoy those new snacks!!

Hope you get my letters, I sent two…..but for those who might still be reading, thanks for that, I know this is a weird post, but really this game means a lot to me and if I can express it deeply, I would, but this is long enough so i’ll just end it here, maybe i’ll make a part 2 post…….maybe….

Let’s Talk: Yoga

Good morning everyone, hope all your weeks are starting out alright and that you had a nice weekend!! Okay so some of you might be a little confused about the title, why are we talking about Yoga!? Well I attempted it yesterday and kinda wanted to share on it, from trying it yesterday though i’m feeling some soreness this morning, are you meant to feel sore after doing yoga!? It’s been a while that’s why i’m asking……

Now originally I was going to write about it, but as I was writing the post, it kept getting longer and longer and so I ended up doing a video on it instead and after editing that video well…..it was still quite long, I had a lot to express on it I guess, originally it was 30 mins and that was because it was the untouched version, by editing it though, it came out to 24 mins and 33 secs. Now that’s still pretty long compared to what I would’ve wanted it to come out to, but I think it came out alright and I was pretty happy with it!!

I do try to keep my videos and posts from exceeding a certain amount of talkage time (I don’t think talkage is a word, but just go with it okay) but yeah I try to keep at a certain length when writing and recording, but I can’t seem to help myself when expressing and so that’s why it always ends up being quite longer than I anticipated……

Here’s a quick run down of the video, i’ll share what I had originally wrote down, but it’s probably going to be worded differently:

So after waking up pretty early yesterday, I did a 7 min mediation and than I decided to do a little yoga as well, now I probably should’ve started a little easy to warm myself up and get use to the stretches and all that, but I instead went for a 40 min yoga video focusing on bringing creativity out of you, now I know what you’re saying “40 mins isn’t that bad” very true, yes…..except

That 40 min video took me about 2 HOURS!! Yes 2 hours to get through, luckily it was still morning time and that I got up a little early today as well, i’m finding the earlier you get up the more the morning feels like it’s there for a while as well as the day, if that makes sense!?

So yeah that’s just a little peak on my Yoga attempt after not doing it for a while, there’s also some fun moments in there as well as other things expressed!! Now you know why it’s so long, had I written it instead, you’d be reading for hours, but if you want to take a look at my latest video, you can watch it here: Let’s Talk: Yoga (Patience, Breath Work ect….)

Also if you want to try out the yoga video I did, you can find it here: Awaken The Artist Within|Yoga With Adriene it’s a great workout, but you just gotta have patience with it as well as yourself, just do your best!!

Hope everyone’s doing alright!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

3 K.K. Slider Songs I Never Get Tired Of (Songs From Animal Crossing)

Okay yeah i’ll admit, this may seem like a weird of a post, but here me out okay, I had this idea after watching (listening) to a streamer, whose stream was already recorded and posted onto Youtube while I was cleaning up my room, in the already streamed video Crystal the name of the streamer that I like watching, although her channel name is called SimplyPressStart on her channel she plays a lot of different games, but Animal Crossing is like the mascot on her channel, I think I actually spoke about her before on here…..

But anyway, in one of the already streamed videos that she recorded she asked the question to what K.K. Slider song is our favorite to listen to and I thought about some favorites when she asked and I thought hey this is a good idea to write or make a video about, I think I wrote it down originally as a video idea and then decided to just write about last night so here we are!! Now I won’t go making this post super long, i’m going to do my best at least, but without further ado I thought i’d share 3 K.K. Slider songs that are both my favorite, but also ones I don’t really get tired of as well.

First Up……K.K. Soul (I picked the Chill Mix, but I love the original as well)

Now you can’t see me, but i’m actually laughing to myself because I can’t believe i’m actually writing about this, but hey sometimes, weirder things happen and I love animal crossing as well as the songs on there, yes their weird, but they’re also quite entertaining……I mean look at this album art that the people who created animal crossing made, they went all out to make animal crossing have it’s own little thing, even with the music…..

You gotta appreciate that man and if you don’t hey that’s cool to each their own, no worries about it!! Now let’s talk why I like this song, 1. It’s just really relaxing, every time I hear it, i’m just like “ahhh such a good song” I could listen to it all day, I love it so much that, say you were to play New Leaf….yes NL I still play it, even though I haven’t been in my town for a couple days now, but if you were to visit my animal crossing home,

You’ll be greeted with this song, because it’s the main song that plays in my animal crossing home, it’s just one of my favorites, can’t really explain why, I think it’s just the soothing and calm sound of it, but I love it!! That’s it….

Moving on to the second K.K. Slider song……K.K. Cruisin’ (This is the live version that he sings in the game I believe….)

Well that’s funny as I was about to write on K.K. Cruisin’ the song came on, perfect timing (i’m listening to an animal crossing mix, in case some of you are wondering…..I wanted to get in the mode to write this post….it’s working) anyway K.K. Cruisin’ first check out the artwork for this song, I tell you man, it’s just so good, but why……why!?……actually let’s not question it.

Let’s just admire it for a moment……..Did you take it all in!?

Okay then onto the reason I like this song, it’s very chill….yeah…..just that actually, also there’s a sneeze in it and so some of us Animal Crossing fans, nicknamed it K.K. Sneeze, at least those in the SimplyPressStart community, it’s really great, it’s one of those K.K. songs you can really jam with and get into, this song is actually in my room, room, in my animal crossing game, this song is just another one of my favorites that I can’t actually explain either, I just really like the vibe of it I guess…..

Last, but not least, another favorite of mine……K.K. Disco (This is Disco like the in game song in animal crossing)

Yes I know, some of the album covers are weird, but again you gotta give the creators of Animal Crossing some props I mean, the dedication they put into these non existent, yet also existent songs within the game is just……Magnificent, they really did make this game stand out, I mean it has it’s own album collection……I don’t know any other game that has that!!

That being said, let’s talk about K.K. Disco……..how to explain it, it’s a groovy song and it’s funny because there’s an actual song by K.K. Slider called K.K. Groove……but we’re talking about K.K. Disco and so K.K. groove is going to have to take a backseat on this one……so yeah K.K. Disco,

What I like about it, it’s fun, upbeat and whenever I hear it, it makes me groove and I can appreciate that, it’s a nice unreal track to listen to, I actually at one point had this as my main song in my old Animal Crossing game town, but then it got replaced by K.K. Soul, but even though it’s no longer the main song that plays in my town, it’s still one of my favorites to listen to whenever i’m playing New Leaf, but yeah it’s a really good song!!

That is all the K.K. Slider songs I got, I was going to pick 5, but I thought 3 was a good amount to choose from, also I only really had three songs in mind so there’s that, animal crossing is very interesting, but really great game and if you’re a fan of it like I am, you really can appreciate all that it has to offer, it allows you to just chill out to and destress for a while,

Unless you’re planning something, like where to put a public works project or you know getting frustrated with villagers moving where they feel like, but other than that, Animal Crossing really is a great game to wind down to and just enjoy, I actually still need to download New Horizons, I know it came out last week and i’ve been wanting to play it, but i’m waiting a bit to download it so yeah, i’m excited for it though, i’m sure people are loving it!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Let’s Talk: Cartoon Shows And One Of My Favorites!!

We’ve all been young before right!? Of course we have what kind of a weird question is that i’m sure you might be asking……just trying to start conversation is all i’d say!! No but really, we’ve all had one, two or a good couple of favorite tv shows growing and although I know not all we’re into cartoons tv shows, we’ve all had at least one or two cartoons that we just could not get enough of……..maybe so much that we may even still watch it to this day…….let’s be honest we don’t really grow too old for cartoon shows.

We may end up not really watching the ones that we did as kids, but there’s always that one show that grabs our attention no matter our age range……I have a couple of favorites or at least ones that I happen to find myself getting a little too happy about the moment I know it’s about to come on……

I can’t help it, it’s just a really good show alright, the show i’m going on about is called Craig Of The Creek……now this I have to say is the only show at the moment that I pretty much wait for to come on, I know a little weird, but there’s just something about the show that just……makes me happy, I don’t know what it is!? It could be because the show is pretty much about adventure and enjoyment or maybe just something else completely…….

Now before you guys think i’m writing a whole review here, i’m not when it comes to shows and movies I don’t really know how to review them and really give constructive notes about them, if i’m really into a show or movie i’ll just talk about that show or movie for as long as it interest me, same with video games and or music, but let’s get back to the show Craig of the Creek, I just admire and really appreciate the way the show is……

It’s not just this show for kids where there’s just random things happening in it, there’s a lot that happens in the show and you learn some things too which is nice, it’s good when you have cartoons that have something special to it and Craig of the Creek is one of those special shows, not only is it fun, but there’s a lot of lessons in it and the way the show is, is just something of it’s own, I wouldn’t be able to really explain it even if I tried…….

With most cartoons it can sometimes be a bit of a hit or miss when it comes to it trying to grab your attention and really have you truly enjoying it and that it mainly out of what exactly interests you, but with this show, I don’t see how you wouldn’t enjoy it, it just a down to earth, all around great show and maybe there’s moments where cartoon experts can say reasons to why they don’t like it or what could be better about it, but me I just love it,

There hasn’t been a moment to where I thought, I really don’t like this, but that’s just me, I just wanted to share that, I don’t know why, but I felt like talking about it…….Craig Of The Creek, a good favorite show of mine!!

Okay so heads up going to get a little promoty here, since we’re on the topic of cartoons, I just wanted to let you know that I recently did a video about songs within cartoons, not the theme songs, but songs that were written to be in a moment within the cartoons, if you guys are interested you can check it out here: Songs Within Cartoons and yeah, there’s that!!

So…..what’s your favorite Cartoon Show!?

All The Love ❤ ❤
