HELLO!


Hey all, welcome to my blog.  

If you’re here because you’re tired of Supernatural and the cast- I have a lot of posts that will be of interest to you. Way too many. I kind of wish they’d retire the show and their stupidity. If you’re wondering why I’m trash talking your favourite show – there’s an explanation post here.

Please read the rest of this post if you’re wondering where the Supernatural recaps have gone.

If you have a general comment about Supernatural, the cast or whatever, I now have an open thread!

stupid and senseless: jussie smollett


So, three weeks ago on January 29th, Jussie Smollett called the police to report that he’d been attacked. According to what was first reported, it was a racially motivated attack as well as political and homophobic. Fair enough, that’s not unheard of. 

On that same night, I saw many people questioning the story, but given that it was developing and that I have no real affinity for Jussie, I felt bad for him and I kept it moving. I stopped watching Empire a long time ago (heck, I just remembered that I used to post recaps for it!) and haven’t even so much as seen a picture of him since. So, I was like, ‘well, that’s a shame’ and went about my business.

Next thing I know, it’s being reported that he went ahead with a concert two days later (a bit iffy, but fine, I can buy that he was standing up to the haters). It’s what he said during this concert that took me from sympathetic indifference to is this dude okay? 

I’m the gay Tupac

1. Tupac was shot dead

2. Tupac did talk a lot about real issues and things that people didn’t necessarily focus on, but…

3. He’s dead. 

What do you mean that you’re the gay Tupac? Why bring Tupac into this? Jussie, are you okay?

That nonsense was followed by ‘I fought the fuck back’ which I couldn’t even make sense of. You’re the Gay Tupac and you fought back. Was he trying to start hashtags? #gaytupac #iftfback

Even after that weird statement, I didn’t really dive deeper until his GMA interview, which I didn’t even watch until a few days ago. Just the quotes were enough to make it seem off. Watching it after the developments was even more disturbing. 

Anyway, onto the interview…some quotes (taken from Daily Fail).

‘You do such a disservice when you lie about stuff like this.’

‘He says, “This MAGA country n****!” and punches me right in the face. So I punch his a** back. We end up tussling by the stairs, fighting, fighting, fighting…and then it just stopped.’

‘I looked down and I noticed a rope around my neck and I started screaming, “There’s a f****** rope around my neck!”

‘It feels like if I had said it was a Muslim or a Mexican or someone black, I feel like the doubters would have supported me a lot more. That says a lot about the place that we are at in the country right now.’

‘I want a little gay boy who might watch this to see that I fought the f*** back. They ran off,’ I didn’t.’

‘I still want to believe there’s something called justice.’

‘I’ve heard that it was a date gone bad which I so resent that narrative. I’m not going to go out to get a tuna sandwich and a salad to meet somebody. That’s ridiculous and offensive.

‘They called me a f****t. I don’t need to add anything like that. I don’t need to make MAGA hat the cherry on the top of some racist sundae.’

‘I will never be the man that this did not happen to… I am forever changed

The interview was an interesting watch. It wasn’t very convincing. In parts he’s laughing, in parts he was indignant, but not in a way that seemed genuine. It was all over the place. 

My favorite part was where he boldly defended his decision to go to Subway at 2am. Make no mistake, it was reckless and stupid. I say this as someone who does late night runs at the store – not even I would leave my house at that time to get anything, and I’m not famous and currently receiving threats. 

Which, by the way…

I mean…

Anyway, back to the interview and one thing I found strange was his version of what went down. Apparently, the attackers called out ‘EMPIRE!’ and he doesn’t answer to that. 

1. If these racist, homophobic people know enough about you to be near your home, they’d surely know your name? Or your characters name at least?

2. Again, this seems like an odd detail to bring up in an interview. To the police, yes. In an interview…

The next part that raised eyebrows. He mentioned calling his manager in Australia – establishing that someone overheard the attack. So, he took his phone out to make the call right? Unfortunately, in the interview, he says his phone fell out of his pocket while he was fighting back and when he picked it up, his manager was still on his phone. 

Boy. 

See now, what he should have said was that his phone was knocked out of his hand. Which it would have been had he really been seriously jumped. Unless he was using a headset – but I think it’s safe to say he didn’t think of that.

The next part of the interview that didn’t really do it for me was when he was asked about the motive. 

“I come really, really hard against 45. I come really, really hard against his administration, and I don’t hold my tongue.”

1. Shuuuuut up. Shut up. Shut up. Shut up. HOLD YOUR DAMN TONGUE! Who has seen all of this anti-Trump activism of yours until now? Hardly anyone. Trump wasn’t even aware of it. No one was! 

2. Where were his people and why did they allow him to answer this question?

There was also the part about the noose and bleach which was even more bizarre. He didn’t realise there was bleach on him until he got back to his apartment…I…I can’t even follow all of it anymore. 

It’s like a mishmash of an Empire and Supernatural episode. Just a hot mess all around. 

Unfortunately for him, the day after this interview, two Nigerian brothers that he knows personally were arrested in relation to the attack. 

Once again, when he commented on that he said that he felt sympathy for them. Uh… What? 

They were released without charge two days later after singing like damn canaries and the rest, as they say, is history. 

Of course, now we all know that he made calls to them before and after the attack hence why he handed over incomplete call logs to the police when they wanted them. 
During the interview he had this to say:

I‘m sorry, but I’m not going to do that, I have private pictures and videos and numbers. My partner’s number, my family’s numbers, my castmates’ numbers, my friends’ numbers, my private emails, my songs.”

Yeah, but…you called the police. You told them you were on the phone. You told them your manager could corroborate your story because you were on the phone to him! You brought up the phone! 

You pointed out the camera during a walk through. The police merely thought you were trying to do their job for them. You chose to keep a ‘noose’ around your neck to ‘preserve evidence’. 

Yet, your phone was off limits? 

The story gets crazier and crazier but now obviously he’s been arrested for filing a false police report. 

Other details:

  • He also paid the brothers with a personal check for $3500. They say it was to stage the attack
  • He says it was for training and a music video and curiously, he backdated the check to 23rd Jan.
  • There’s footage of the brothers buying supplies they say he instructed them to buy
  • Apparently footage of them rehearsing the attack exists. 
  • Jussie supposedly has a drug problem
  • He claims that he’s innocent
  • He’s been axed from the last two episodes of EMPIRE 

It seems like he’s guilty. 

    ….Yet, somehow, I feel like there is something missing from this story. It doesn’t make any sense. Right now the motive is money, but that doesn’t even make sense to me. Maybe he has a martyr complex. I don’t know. 

    What I do know that it’s sad that he’s thrown his career away over something so fucking stupid. Personal checks? Using your personal cell phone? Watching a basic police procedural show could have kept the scent off him for a while longer. 

    Damn shame. 

    stupid and senseless: kanye west and chance the rapper


    This was written on 29th April, but apparently I didn’t care enough to post it. Given that Kanye is back in the news, I might as well post it now. I see that he went for the whole blaming his mental illness for the latest rant. He has nothing whatsoever to promote I’m assuming. 

    His handler needs to change his Twitter password.  

    Anyway, onto this (OLD) post. Not sure if the tweets are still up, but I guess we’ll all see when I hit post!


    Let me just start with Chance. He waded into the argument to defend his friend, which would be admirable if his friend wasn’t currently crapping all over black people. I don’t know about you but if my friend was saying any of what Kanye was saying, they would receive a strongly worded message and ZERO public support from me.

    Chance deserved to be shouted out by Trump – and his statement apologizing was bullshit too. He knew what he was doing and he did it anyway. Pick a side and stick to it.

    No, black people don’t have to be democrats, but nobody asked him. Nor does he speak for anyone but himself.

    Kanye West is CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANCEEEEEEEEELLEEEEEEEEEED. He can go and promote his album in the whitest town in Alabama for all I care. He’s not receiving a single cent from me. He is disgusting, an opportunist and a complete hypocrite who is only interested in himself. Any black person co-signing any of his rantings and ravings needs to check themselves.

    My favourite part was this Kim K tweet which still doesn’t make any sense to me.

    Kanye is years ahead of his time?? GIRL, BYE. Ben Carson called, he wants his privileged black person taking shots at fellow black people by aligning themselves with a racist trophy back.

    ….not even political but you love Trump and have a MAGA hat? Yeah, sure. Got it. I love how him and Kim are all like wah wah wah free thought – in that case, accept the criticism and shut the fuck up. Simple.

    Too bad that they’re both idiots.

    and this is why I hate lyric videos


    Yes, I still listen to Jesse McCartney. I even like this song, but I could make a better lyric video than this. We all could. Individually and collectively. 

    I am genuinely lost for words y’all, I really am. 

    I’m just going to take my beautiful soul out of here. 

    Catfish: The TV Show


    Well, guys, I started watching Catfish: The TV Show. Actually, I watched one episode and gave up. I feel like I used to watch it back when it was a new show but I can’t remember. Anyway. I was watching some of the clips on YouTube and I seriously cannot comprehend what I’m watching.

    These people are often in long distance relationships. 

    Fine. 

    That being said, if someone is refusing to video call or voice call, surely that’s a huge sign. 

    Maybe, maybe not. I hate phone calls. There are people I only communicate with via email. How do they know I am who I say I am? 

    Facebook, obviously. 

    But, wait…

    These Catsnappers have found a way around that too! In one episode – actually the first and only one I saw, the girl had taken a picture of some model and used it to create a fake profile wherever. 

    That episode was hilarious to me because the Catfishee actually stole the Catfisher from her sister. She tried to get her sister to come on the journey with her and her sister was like NOPE! Imagine that. You steal your sister’s boo and you want her to be there when you meet him. I think that girl was a few breaks short of a Kit Kat. 

    Delving into Catfish further and you come across people who have catfished hundreds of people. On one hand, they’re obviously messed up and deprived in some way. On the other, how do people even find the time to talk to that many people. I’m at a point in my life where it’s a struggle to keep in contact with the three friends that I have. These people are operating a mafia level game of friendship. One guy had code names and descriptions for each of the people he’d Catfished saved on his Google Drive. 

    I wish I had that time, I really do. 

    The most bizarre Catfish clip I’ve seen is the one where the two cousins are traipsing around with Nev and Max and at the end of their trip to the third location, one of the cousin reveals that she’s the one who’s been Catfishing her own cousin because he said she looks like a fat Kelly Pryce. 

    Yoooooo. 

    Look. She really felt like she was the winner in all of this, but sis, you spent three years wasting time talking to your own cousin. You played yourself. 

    I’m not an advocate of violence, but she really could have just whooped his ass in three minutes to get her point across. 

    The thing is that a lot of these people are unrepentant. They have their reasons for catfishing and THEY DON’T CURR. 

    That melee takes me to my last point. Why are people seemingly so happy to go through this kind of humiliation on TV? 

    There was the girl who thought she was dating Bow Wow. It turned out that it was a lesbian pretending to be Bow Wow. Or Lil Bow Wow, cause she was on the small side.  

    1. Who Catfishes as Bow Wow? Sis was sending this girl money and everything. That should have been the first clue. 

    2. Who is checking for Bow Wow like that? If he messaged me, I would leave him on read. 

    It’s like these people lose their minds. 

    Like that one guy who was super convinced he was talking to Katy Perry. He seemed like he was a few Pringles short of a cylinder, but still, surely he has some sense?

    Apparently not.  

    Bad Moviethon #21 – Power Rangers (2017)


    Potentially Bad Moviethon 

    #21

    …in which I examine if bad movies really deserve their woeful rotten tomatoes score

    Power Rangers | 2017

    Five ordinary teens must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.

    This has a 45% score on Rotten Tomatoes, which is probably more than it deserves. 

    It reminded me of the original movie. I think I reviewed that here, but I can’t find it. 

    That movie was basically A BUNCH OF KIDS WITH POWERS DISAPPEAR OFF WORLD FOR MOST OF THE MOVIE BEFORE COMING BACK TO SAVE THEIR TOWN. 

    That’s basically the same thing happening in the new movie. 

    The villain was not called Ivan Ooze so I don’t care about her. She was terrible anyway. 

    There are some updates – tokenism. The black kid ticks the diversity and character on the spectrum boxes. The Latina ticks the diversity and LGBT boxes. The male, white protagonist is the one that saves the day or whatever. His drama is that he can’t carry the entire football team on his back or something. The female protagonist is a reformed bully. 

    I lost track of all of these characters and their storylines after a while. 

    All in all it’s a very underwhelming movie. The special effects were decent until the big scene at the end. It looked cheap and fake. I couldn’t make sense of what was going on besides all of them almost being fried alive in their Zords. 

    However, it kept me entertained and I watched it in one sitting. It was also kind of cool to see a modern Power Rangers movie.

    Verdict: 4/10. Not great, but not overwhelmingly bad. 

    Obligatory ‘why is SPN still on?’ post


    I think it’s been a few years since the last oblig post. I haven’t really kept up with the show beyond… well nothing. 

    The last I heard, the last season was the best since the last season that was the best since whatever season anyone still watching the show decided they like last. It’s hard to get a straight answer from them. 

    I imagine that’s because deep down inside they know that they’re watching garbage every week. 

    Anyway. 

    I’m guessing the O’Jays have the answer to my obligatory question. I guess the $PN Jays got to have it…

    Bad Moviethon #20 – John Tucker Must Die 


    (note: just realised that I owe a few people replies on the last supernatural post – I’ll get to it!…eventually…)

    #20

    …in which I examine if bad movies really deserve their woeful rotten tomatoes score

    Rotten Score: 26%

    Synopsis:

    After discovering they are all dating the same same guy (Jesse Metcalfe), three popular students from different cliques band together for revenge, so they enlist the help of a new gal in town and conspire to break the jerk’s heart, while destroying his reputation.

    This is basically the ultimate fuckboi movie. 

    John Tucker is the quintessential high school quarterback hot stud douche. All the girls love him, all the guys want to be him. Everyone’s existence is dependent on him somehow. 

    Somehow, a new girl swans into town and immediately identities John Tucker as a effboy because her mom has dated a long line of effboys (hence why they keep moving lollllll). 

    Coincidentally, New Girl happens to work at a restaurant for five minutes and determines that John Tucker has three girlfriends. She also manages to get herself in detention with those three girls and the nasty truth is revealed. 

    To make things worse, John Tucker dumps all of them with the same speech. 

    New girl then helps them concoct their ultimate revenge plan – destroy his rep and when that fails, make John Tucker fall in love and then cruelly reveal it was all a trick. 

    The new girl is basically one huge deux ex machina. She even sets the pace for her own happy ending by crushing on John Tucker’s brother early on. By the way, no one thought it was weird to make the other love interest the biological sibling of the main antagonist? 

    Oh and no one thought that Penn Badgely’s hair was a huge no-no? 

    Well. 

    Actually, it was kind of cute. 

    Anyway, after some hilarious hijinks in which John Tucker remains unbothered and unscathed, the movie ends up with him…remaining unbothered and unscathed. 

    Yeah, he literally goes back to his fuckboi ways and everyone is like, ‘LOL, THAT GUY IS SOMETHING ELSE!’. He’s literally openly dating multiple people at the end of the film. 

    The moral of the story seemed to be… you can’t con a conman because they have no moral compass?

    Sadly, that’s true. However, this is movie. It was supposed to deliver me a dead John Tucker, but it didn’t and I am deeply disappointed. 

    That being said, I think this movie warrants a 50% at least. 

    It was entertaining and endearingly stupid and there was no noticeably bad acting. The soundtrack was cool, too. 

    Verdict: 5/10

    5 More Awesome Gift Ideas


    Greetings, y’all. 

    Have you met people that you now hate enough to spend large amounts of cash on stupid gifts they will never have any use for?

    If the answer is yes, re-evaluate your life. 

    If the answer is no, come this way. Let’s wrap. Or unwrap. Whatever. 

    1. Samurai Pet Armor for Cats and Dogs

    Small pet clothes
    Price: US$ 223

    Perhaps nothing says Japan quite like the Samurai Pet Armor for Cats and Dogs, which brings together Japan’s history and its love for small domestic animals. Unlike real armor, this is lightweight so your feline or canine friend won’t get (too) annoyed and will be happy to pose for unique photos. And when it’s not in use, you could hang the armor costume up as an item of wall decoration or even wrapped around a drink bottle. Available in four colors and three sizes.

    I don’t know if this is really cool or really terrible, so… I’ll let y’all be the judge.

    lethal weapon (season 2)


    Before I started watching the second season I stumbled across an article on Clayne Crawford being fired. I read about all of the tension on set, the arguments and Clayne’s behaviour. Much was made of Damon’s demands, but you’d imagine those have been the same since day one. Aggressive behaviour? Not so much.

    Misha Collins is the most amazing and kind person


    Psych.

    These kind of comments are always my favourite. The humble Supernatural fan stumbles across my blog and they unleash the fury.

    That the post is from three years ago amuses me to no end. 

    Here’s the full comment (link)

    WTF HOW DARE YOU
    I KNOW THIS IS OLD, BUT I NEED TO SAY THAT
    Misha Collins is the most amazing & kind person.
    So he do sometime stupid & unfunny jocks. This is doesn’t mean he deserves a death sentence for it. He is just HUMAN like all of us. He is kind, sweet happy person. SO HE DID BAD JOCK. HOW DARE YOU TO WITH DEATH FOR HIM, HE DOSN’T DESERVE THAT. IF U DON’T LIKE HIM, THAT FINE, IT’S YOUR CHOICE. BUT DON’T SAY SUCH THING, AS YOU WOULDN’T WANT BAD THINGS LIKE THAT WRITTEN ABOUT YOU BECAUSE A BAD JOKE. It’s disgusting to talk like that about a person. This is not the way to disagree with a person, to humiliate him, especially if that person is a kind and good, person who is trying his best to make the world a better place, and GISH is a greate example for that. So if you do not like it, it’s okay, but stop, just stop, he dosn’t deserve that.

    In true Supernatural Snark fashion, here is the breakdown.
