October Rain

It probably seems a little odd that i’m finally writing about the month of October when it’s pretty much halfway finished, I mean Halloween is literally around the corner now, but whether you noticed or haven’t really noticed, it’s been three weeks today since my last post so I figured,

Well more like felt I need to write something, do I know what this post is going to be about!? Not really at this point i’m just writing and seeing what comes out, I was trying to figure out what would be a good topic to write on,

but yeah thinking on that i’d be stuck on it all day so that’s why i’m just writing, trying to not think on it so much……if you’re wondering on the title well we’ve been having a lot of rain lately this month and so I figured, perfect title!!

These days i’ve been finding myself away from my computer and so that’s kinda why I haven’t been writing as much, also I haven’t really had a lot of things i’ve wanted to talk about which is also the reason I haven’t written in a while, October has been pretty alright i’d say, i’ve gone to appreciate this month a little, October might be the month of horror, which isn’t my favorite kind of thing, but that aside it’s been pretty alright nonetheless

I’ve been on a small amount of adventures sorta, if you want to count what my definition of adventures are, it probably wouldn’t be called adventures to you, but to me they are, i’ve slightly embraced certain things I normally wouldn’t quite go with and I guess that’s good, it might not mean much to most of you, but for me this month has invited me to enjoy and kinda go with whatever the day has in mind and I appreciate it……

Some days aren’t always full of it, but when they are, i’ve had a good time when in the moment of course and I guess when in those moments that’s all you can ask for, enjoying what life wants you to see, in the moments that you’re seeing them, but that’s my October post, sorry if it’s a short one….

Hope you all are enjoying your day and having a good one!!

Colors Of September….

It’s now both the beginning of a new season and the ending of a month, which is September……I feel like this month went by quite quickly yet at the same time I remember when it first arrived, goodness……I feel like I don’t have a lot of words today…..at least with writing a post, on a brighter note, one of the best things with this month is the different colors of the leaves

I just think they’re really pretty and sometimes you come across unique ones or at least some that catch your eye……i’m not really sure how to feel knowing that we’re literally on the last day of this month, I was thinking of that when I went outside for some fresh air earlier this morning, normally I feel like the other months were taking their time, but this month i’m not sure, I mean it arrived and now it’s going……I guess this month has always been like that, but maybe i’m just noticing it!? Maybe it’s just me.

September……to describe it I can’t, I just know it’s the month that brings us the colors that the trees soon take on as well as a whole new season that’s been a little indecisive on what kind of weather it wants to be, sometimes it’s hot, sometimes rainy and stormy leaving wondering how you oughta dress for it…….I think fall in general may just be that way……but yeah….

September was here and now we’ll be welcoming the month known as October a.k.a. the “Spoopy” month, I know it’s Spooky, but some people call it that and I like it, not sure if it’s spelled the way I have it, but still I like it!! Just so you know, i’ve never really been a fan of the Halloween month, so with October literally arriving later tonight……i’m not sure what it’s going to be like, it might just be how it normally is, but also different I feel just based on the way the year has gone, we’ll have to wait and see on that won’t we!?

Let’s just hope it all turns out okay…..

Let’s Talk: Your Lie In April (Thoughts)

For those that don’t know this show, well don’t worry at one point I too didn’t know about it either, in fact it wasn’t until I watched one of my favorite youtube channels where I learned about it and then kinda forgot about it, until I went looking for another show to watch after finishing season 4 of Steven Universe……still need to watch season 5 along with the next one after that, but I don’t have those available at the moment,

and that’s why i’m watching all these other shows, I will get to more Steven Universe at some point eventually and when I do, oh am I gonna be happy!! Backing up a bit, Your Lie In April……is an Anime show if you didn’t already know, it’s in Japanese which is the version I ended up watching the show in,

I think there’s also a dubbed version of it, but I learned that a little late so I continued watching it in Japanese, but I did add subtitles so I could understand what exactly was going on, what can I say about the show!? I loved every single moment of it when I watched it, it’s been about a few months since finishing the show, yes I know probably should’ve done this post when I actually finished it, but I didn’t know how I was going to explain it then so when I felt I wanted to talk about it I would and surprise!!

To be honest i’m still unsure just on how I want to express my thought about this show, it’s such a beautiful series, you have this pianist Kōsei Arima or last name first, first name last, it changes in the show, but we have Kōsei whose known as this child prodigy pianist, but hasn’t really touched a piano competitively in a long while since the death of his mother

(Spoilers maybe ahead, if I can give my thoughts properly to this well, but if you haven’t watched it, sorry for the spoiler there)

although he still plays the piano, but not out of enjoyment as much anymore…….until he comes across this girl named Kaori Miyazono who turns out to be a child prodigy of some sort herself, but as a violinist and boy is there first meeting quite the interaction, their relationship (non-romantic-ish) is very entertaining, but also a little hard to explain, mainly because their always at each others throats, but it’s not only them too, Kōsei’s friend group as well have their moments, but you know that deep down they care about each other so…..

That aside though, the show itself is just…..to express it, I feel I wouldn’t be able to do it justice…..not because I don’t want to, but the story of it, it’s hard for me to put words on it, for me to try, i’d only be left speechless, that’s how powerful and great the show is, there’s a lot to it that I feel it’d just be better to watch and feel for yourself if that makes sense, the amount of time it got me emotional, I wouldn’t be able to count it, that’s how much feeling it gave

The music numbers…..oh boy did they take you to different places……the first performance with Arima and Kaori when they had this sort of battle with each other and it wasn’t even intentional, well yes and no, so they had this competition, it was a violinist competition, but Kaori wanted Kōsei to be her accompanist in the competition him being a pianist an all, he though multiple times declined the offer that Kaori presented him with,

but she wasn’t having it and just kept on insisting even going the length of posting the piece that she was going to be playing for that competition all over the place, like LITERALLY everywhere he went, there was the musical piece, it was even a screen saver on his phone, which he was confused about, it was all over the music room at his school, the song even played on the intercom, heck all over his house there was the piece,

that girl was dedicated in making sure he was her accompanist, those moments had me in a shock like “wow this girls crazy” but hey it got him to play so i’ll give her that, but those moments of her trying to get him to play for her was intense, it was great though I could not stop laughing it was one of the best moments of the show, the chemistry between them was just wow!! Back to the competitiveness between them, goodness gracious,

That first performance was just mind-blowing, but again it wasn’t an intentional out-staging by Kōsei, because he was so used to playing competitions, when he wasn’t in his head, it was like you couldn’t stop him and Kaori took his way of playing competitively…..competitively, she did not like being upstaged one bit, but the back and fourth between them,

both offstage and onstage, for some reason it made something work, but that’s just one of them…..then you have the long rivals of Kōsei whose main mission is to finally beat him at first anyway, it later turned into them just wanting him to notice them finally and not just see them as the other pianist, the moments of when they play are just trying to catch a breath…..

The main surrounding of it, is just a whole thing of itself, because it gives you so much to take in not always knowing just who you’re impacting, but also more than that as well if that makes sense!? The series is just something you have to watch to fully understand the concept on what it’s giving you, it’s not something that can be explained in perfect words,

I mean maybe it can, but at the same time, I feel there’s always going to be something that’s hard to explain with it, the best moment has to be the ending of it, the whole show it’s fantastic, but the way that they closed it

That’s something that i’m not going to spoil, because that right there needs to be seen for yourself, seriously, normally when a show ends I always feel like their could’ve been something else that could’ve been added, but even though I was sad to see it finish, I still believe that the ending of it couldn’t have been more perfect, the writers told the story that they wanted to tell, gave us the feelings they wanted us to have and sent it off with a nice bow,

It the saying “I couldn’t have expressed it any better” I don’t think i’d be able to do it the way they did, but even if I did, I would’ve agreed with everything they presented and I don’t say those words often so you know it’s good, but you don’t have to take my word for it at all,

but that is how I feel and if you want to watch it i’m not going to spoil it more than I may have already, this series is hard one to give thought to, there’s just so much to it that although I want to explain, I don’t want to at the same time, because I feel the show can tell it better than I can and that’s the truth!!

That’s all the thoughts I have with Your Lie In April……It’s one of my favorite Anime’s that i’ve had the pleasure of watching, I probably would watch it again, when I don’t know, I feel it’d be a special occasion kind of rewatch,

but I also feel like because I already watched it and know everything that’s happened, i’d be fine with keeping it where it’s at, but I really did enjoy this one and i’ve been watching other Anime some i’ve already finished as well and others i’m either waiting to finish them or i’m still currently watching them, right now i’m still in the process of watching an Anime by the name of Kono Oto Tomare!: Sound Of Life, i’m on season 2 now,

well i’ve still yet to actually watch Season 2, but i’m there, i’ll probably watch it soon, i’ve been enjoying this one as well, but yeah……that’s everything, let me know if you’ve heard of any of these shows and if you’ve watched Your Lie In April, let me know your thoughts on it, but thanks for reading and i’ll see you in the next post…..

All The Love ❤ ❤

Musical Expression Of Scott James & Michael Kilbey….

Have you ever listen to a song of an artist and just admired their way of expression!? Of course everyone has their way of expressing something that their trying to say without having to actually say it, but I just can’t help, but be amazed with the way some artist go about their expression, especially Musicians, if you haven’t known already i’m pretty big fan of music,

I tend to give everything a listen, but there are specific kinds of music that I either prefer or just have a odd gravitation towards and for me i’ve always enjoyed and admired how Indie artist express their art of music, but I can also appreciate how other artist express as well, the reason i’m focused on indie artists is because I always find it interesting just how well they go about every lyric they write, I can’t explain it really, but there’s something about it…..i’m sure non indie musicians have done it this way too and i’m sure i’ve listened to a few or more before, I guess we’ll go ahead and keep an open mind on these other artist as well and not just the indie world of it.

What i’m trying to say is any song that has a very unique way of writing that’s hard to explain I like…..as you can see from the title two of my favorite musicians are within this category, both Scott James and British musician Michael Kilbey always leave me without words whenever I listen to their songs, they write so beautifully!! Scott James tends to have a wandering feel with his music, while Michael Kilbey is more mysterious with his music, but you always feel you’re going on some kind of journey of some sort, at least that’s how I feel about his earlier songs anyway….

To be fair these two might’ve switched a little for all I know, to explain their writing styles would be a hard one for me to do, I always tend to listen to songs and see if I can get a feel to what it sounds like to me and wandering, journey and mysterious is what I came up with when I tried thinking about it with these two, Scott’s voice when he sings is very melodic, his music gives me fall meets Spring vibes, it’s just really pretty his sound, I don’t know how else to say it, it’s really calming…..As for Michael Kilbey’s voice….

It’s very deep, yet angelic at the same time and his music gives me winter meets fall vibes, again his earlier stuff, I don’t know about his new stuff, I have yet to actually hear that, maybe it’s the same, but maybe it’s changed I don’t know, still though whenever I listen to his music, it always leaves me deep in thought, if I went and studied his way of writing……i’d feel like it’d be quite hard to figure out, but I know that it’d still leave me wondering.

Both these musicians always leave me curious with their music and I admire the way they use their words in their writing, also they remind me of both the night time and the evening, Michael Kilbey representing Night and Scott within the later times in their music, maybe that’s confusing, might be weird, but that’s what came into my head a moment ago,

I don’t know if that made sense or not, I thought it as if when hearing these songs where do I tend to listen to it the most, around the later times, this is how I think sometimes, so don’t mind me, but I just wanted to express all of that…..I made a video on this last week, which I posted last night, but I wanted to be able to explain it a bit better and for some reason this tends to be the only way it makes sense and so I wrote most of the other stuff I wanted to say then here, if you want to check out that video, you can watch it here: Let’s Talk: Musical Talents (Scott James & Michael Kilbey)

What favorite artist of yours do you feel have very unique writing styles!?

Animal Crossing Wishlist

You know what I love!? Animal Crossing and yes i’m aware i’ve talked about this game a few times already, but I just can’t help it, it really is a good game, i’ve been playing the game since the gamecube…..okay yes and no, I did play the gamecube version, but at that time, I wasn’t sure what exactly I was meant to be doing in it, so I didn’t play it that much, it wasn’t until I got New Leaf to where I understood the whole concept of the game!!

I never played Wild World at least I don’t remember ever playing it……I did play City Folk though, I never had it personally, but my cousin did, I asked to borrow it a long time ago, pretty sure he’s forgotten and so I went and kept it, still have it too, he doesn’t mind, I don’t think he played it much anyway…..to be fair, I think I only played it a few times when I borrowed it, haven’t played it since though, but I did play it!!

Now we have New Horizons and I just love it!! I even went and created a second Island, I did the same thing when I was always playing New Leaf, I bought another copy so I could start from the beginning without deleting my other town……I then later traded that town in thinking I wasn’t going to miss it……in a way I do miss, but only because I would’ve liked to have seen my very first town after not playing it for a while, buuut you know it’s fine.

That aside though Animal Crossing is pretty much my life, not an exaggeration, what I mean by that is I really do love this game, but moving on, I wanted to create some kind of Wishlist, with the release of New Horizons we were introduced to the new add ons, by that I mean Nintendo had the thought of changing things up not just with the new Island setting,

but having it be based around updates, so instead of having all the holidays within the Animal Crossing world just automatically being there like in the previous games, they’ve now been coming in as updates to keep things fresh and new and so that people don’t go spoiling all the big events for other people that have yet to be seen, but with the new updates addition

That’s been brought to New Horizons, you’ve got people making Wishlists on what they’d like to see added to the game or what they feel needs to be improved on, which is pretty cool, I mean there are still a lot of things that have yet to be introduced with the game so to be able to give suggestions on what could be added because of that, is probably one of the best features that Nintendo ever introduced us to now even with the ideas that we may give, obviously they won’t go adding all of them, but there is a possibility that some of the ideas that we may have for the game could be a future add in if not at least a consideration of some sort and with that possibility,

You know that we’re bound to get our creative juices flowing!! Now with my Wishlist, I might not actually have a lot that i’d want added either because I still have yet to think of what I would like to see be brought to New Horizons or mainly due to what everyone else already suggested, but i’m gonna try and think here, see if I can come up with 5 things and if not then at least 3…..

Number 1:

Someone Edited New Horizons to the New Leaf Promotion poster with Brewster on it….

I’ll admit this one being already suggested, however everyone seems to agree on it, so technically it’s nothing new, but i’d really like for Nintendo to bring back the Cafe (a.k.a) the Roost, so we can see Brewster, it been a thing in all of the games so it should be a thing in New Horizons, now with that, there is a chance that we will get this added eventually,

now I don’t really like spoilers so if you know the details on when, please don’t tell me because I want to be surprised whenever it ends up being announced by Nintendo….that being stated, it’d be nice to have a cafe in the game again, I liked visiting the roost and hearing the theme song and also getting to hang out with Brewster, if they don’t end up bringing him back for some reason, although I don’t see why they wouldn’t!?

but if they don’t, it’d be cool to see who they do add to the cafe when it is brought back…..eventually, I just want a cafe just like everyone else, this one highly requested, but we’ll just have to wait and see on it!!

Number 2:

I had to think on this one a bit, but there was one thing that kept popping up and that was Label, if you don’t know Label she is the third sister to the Able Sisters Sable and Mable, she used to be called Labelle and worked with Gracie in the old days, but now she’s on her own Fashion journey, but it’d be nice if she was given her own shop and if not that, then have her working with her sister again, better yet, just upgrade the able Sisters shop all together, that’s something we’ve never had in the other games so why not add that towards the list I mean Nooks Cranny got an upgrade so why shouldn’t the Able Sisters get one as well!? JUST SAYING!!

Number 3: KAPP’N WE NEED KAPP’N THAT IS ALL!!

No i’m kidding, well yes, but also that’s not it, I can’t seem to think of anything else i’d like to see added, so with the next 2-3 add in’s we’ll go more on what i’d like for Nintendo to improve on, one of them being able to do the crafting and such in a grouping kind of way what I mean is Clams and Nook Miles, for example with the clams if there’s 10 of them that should be considered a whole bad of bait instead of it being 1 bait, 2, bait, 3 bait, 4…..you get it!!

It already takes a while to dig up the clams, it shouldn’t take another long while to craft them when those 10 clams could literally be put into one round-up of bait…..I really hope Nintendo takes this one into consideration and improve on it cause people aren’t going to look for clams that’s been added specifically with this game if they’re just going to be crafted one by one, if you want to make it easy just do what you did with the fences when crafting them and add that feature to the clams as well!!

As for Nook Miles, being able to have the option to choose how many Nook Mile Tickets we want to redeem would be nice, with this suggestion I always think about Pokemon and when you’re gathering Potions and restocking on the Poke’ball and how you’re able to choose how many you’d like, I really appreciate Pokemon for this because not only does it save time, but it also keeps it simple and you gotta love that!! I hope Animal Crossing takes a page out of Pokemon’s book because this feature is better!! sorry…..

Number 4:

We’re going to try and get to five here…..here’s another idea that I just thought about, more villager interaction, for example having them come over like they used to or having more games you can play with them besides treasure hunt every once in a while stuff like that, I mean we’re already living on the same Island why not have these kind of features,

I know people talk about wanting more dialog and them having more personality and that, which yes I agree on, but it’d be nice to really hang out with your villagers at times, maybe even have it to where they randomly ask something of their favorite thing, see how much you know them, it’s just an idea…..

Last idea attempt…..Number 5:

I don’t know how great of idea this one is, but it’s in my head so i’ll share it…..maybe and this is a big maybe…..have some special NPC’s make a cameo, an appearance of some sort, so what they did with Reese and Cyrus, maybe have Phineas make a surprise appearance or have Dr. Shrunk appear again, I think having some of the favorite NPC’s that people enjoyed seeing would be nice, even if it’s just for the moment,

Maybe we won’t see them a lot, but it’d be nice if we could have them show up on the Island for a visit and maybe they would have some kind of rare treasures that you can’t really get playing the game everyday or most days, Even if you created another May Day kind of Maze thing and add some of them there like you did with Rover, have that be like a special event that we get here and there, that too would be great, I mean with that we’d always be excited for something and plus I think it’d be nice if we could get a visit from some of the other special characters.

That’s my wishlist for now, I honestly don’t have anything else to add, at least in this one, I might go and make another one when other ideas strike of course, but that’s all for now, let me know what you’d like to see as future updates if you too play Animal Crossing: New Horizons and with that i’ll see you all in the next post!! ^_^

Creator Spotlight: Oneboredjeu (Mashups)

I feel like it’s been a while since i’ve done one of these, so I thought hey let’s go ahead and write another one, now for those who may just be finding this blog and have come across this one as your first post of mine, i’ll explain a bit just what these kind of post are just in case you’re wondering, now with creator spotlight I like to talk about special creators that I either admire or just really like to where I want to share and have other people check them out as well, it’s pretty simple really, I don’t always do these kind of posts,

It’s always at random and it’s only with specific people that I feel deserve a little more love and who I just want to talk about a bit is all, in today’s post of Creator Spotlight, we shine some light on a creator that i’ve been a fan of for quite some time, now it’s been a bit of a while since i’ve checked out their stuff, it wasn’t until recently that I re discovered them and listened to some of their newer mixes and I gotta say they still got it!!

Now when I say mixes, I mean mashups, if you haven’t heard of them or have listened to any of their stuff I definitely recommend check their content out, because it is the best!! I know there’s a lot of mashup channels out there and i’m sure some of them are good too, but Oneboredjeu (I don’t know how to pronounce their name, but that’s the name of the channel) have probably the best mashup’s i’ve ever heard, literally!!

I don’t know what exactly it is about them, but the way they combine different songs together is just fascinating and it’s not only two songs, they’ve done a whole collage of songs shall I say, it’s just amazing!! Some of the songs that they’ve done so far, you think they wouldn’t go together, but the moment you listen to it, you’d be so mind-boggled just how well some of songs they’ve mashed up works, that you wouldn’t believe it even when listening to it, it’s that good, but you don’t have to take my word for it

Just listen and see for yourself, in some way you’ll be surprised, if you want examples, i’ll share a few of my favorites as well as new ones that i’ve recently checked out and liked in a moment, but if you’re feeling your days going a little weird and you want a little surprise of something good or maybe you want to fool your brain and give it something it’s not expecting, check out Oneboredjeu’s channel, you might just find something there!!

Before we close this post, here’s some of my favorite Mashup’s by Oneboredjeu:

Favorites:

More Car Trouble (Halsey VS Twenty One Pilots)

Make Jagger This Cool (Kungs Vs Demi Lovato Vs Gwen Stefani Vs Cookin on 3 Burners & More)

Under The Chandelier (Sia Vs Evanescence)

Recent Favorite Listens

The Notorious B.T.S. (The Notorious B.I.G. Vs BTS)

Chunky Style (Bruno Mars Vs Harry Styles)

I know I have more favorites than recent favorite listens, but the recently listened ones are the only ones i’ve heard more than once, but there are a whole lot more that you can check out in case these ones aren’t much to your liking, these are some of my favorite mashups,

might not be yours and that’s okay, these are just examples that’s all, but I really do recommend checking this channel out, they’re very talented and the work that they do with their mashups are amazing so if you’re curious and want to check it out it’s there, but that’s all I want to share, I hope you’re all having a nice Friday and I hope the rest of your weekend goes well too!!

In The Tune Of Fall….

Hiya i’m sure you all have noticed, but in case this weather is giving you some mixed feelings, we’ve now entered a new month and we’ll soon be entering a new season as well, it’s a little crazy that we’re already in the month of September it feels like for a while we were in the Summer months for quite some time, but once August came around things started speeding up just a little bit, however just like all the other months we’re having to say see you the next time around and get used to the colder months now.

Now I gotta say, i’m kinda a little happy that we’re getting into the more colder part of the months, mainly with the fall, not so much winter, although I may have been born in the Springtime, I do really enjoy the months of Autumn, I can’t really tell you why, but fall has always been my second favorite season, I just really love the look and feel of it, you know!?

Spring is great too, I mean that’s the season I was born in so I have to make sure to give it some kinda of love, but there’s just something about fall that I can’t quite explain, maybe it’s the way the leaves change color or just the aura of it, if seasons have aura’s that is, who knows really, for all I know I could just be talking nonsense, but nonetheless it’s still great!!

Summer however was…..well I guess you can say that it had its moments, I won’t say it was the best summer, but I won’t go putting it down either, to be fair, i’ve never really been all that into the summer, so there’s not really much to say when it comes to it, summer and I…..we’ll just have to always agree to disagree, it’s not that it’s a bad season, just not mine……

Fall on the other hand, love it!! I can’t tell you what exactly i’m expecting to happen with it, so I guess i’ll just have to do my best to embrace it as best as I can with whatever it chooses to bring along…..if I had to describe what fall is like…..i’d say it’s both deep thinking and curious, but it also give you that sense of something that you just can’t quite grasp if that makes sense, you can take on that what you will, hopefully whatever you feel fall to be for you is something that is good and worth to be the season that it is…..

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 ❤ ❤
