HELLO!


This blog is on hiatus for the foreseeable future. 

I am technically still on hiatus but I reserve the right to occasionally comment on Jared’s activities. He’s basically become my personal amusement. In a good way and not ‘omg, I want to punch myself’ kinda way. I think.

I’M BAAAAAAACK.

Currently not watching season 10
Can’t really be bothered with season 11.

Please be respectful when commenting and if you do decide to leave me a weird comment that makes no logical sense, come back to explain it. That’s all that I ask. If you have a question that you don’t want to post publicly or require credit for any images used, please leave a comment using the form below.

‘Hand Of God’ (Amazon Original Series)


image

Hand of God follows Pernell Harris (Ron Perlman ), a corrupt judge who suffers a breakdown and believes God is compelling him onto a path of vigilante justice.

This has to be one of the most unintentionally hilarious shows I’ve ever seen. And it really isn’t funny, but in its attempts at seriousness, it just fails on every level. The first scene literally shows this naked judge standing in a fountain, speaking in tongues. Fast forward a few scenes and we learn that that is all a reaction to his son shooting himself. And that before that, his son was forced to watch as some thug raped his wife.

The judge comes across a young preacher and somehow leaves that interaction believing that he is Solomon. He starts to hear messages from his comatose son that supposedly lead him towards the rapist. He believes that God is using his son to help him find the culprit. Somehow, by the end of the first episode, he’s basically figured out that a cop is the rapist. He goes as far as having the cop strip down so that his son’s wife can identify his nether regions. Yes, that actually happened.

Intervention Request


image

I have a confession to make.

Not only did I watch the Big Time Rush show in its entirety (including ten ill-advised minutes of bloopers before I realised that it wasn’t a weird episode where they weaved through the fourth wall haphazardly), but I actually like some of their songs.

I think I might be a Big Time Rush fan.

somebody save me. they look like the want to sell someone four used grand cherokees. 

In fact, I am writing this in the hopes that my brain gets with the program and schedules an intervention for me somehow. The songs aren’t even that great. They all kind of sound the same, although, ‘Time Of Our Life‘ will always be my jam. ALWAYS. And I’m partial to ‘Any Kind Of Guy’, ‘Nothing Even Matters’ and ‘Worldwide’ which I won’t link for fear of ending up in yet another YouTube black hole. Still, I draw the line at having a shower playlist that consists solely of Big Time Rush songs. And also a workout playlist.

I have issues – I know. Continue reading “Intervention Request”

UnREAL (Lifetime)


 

150307-unreal

Unsurprisingly, the first I heard of UnReal was when I saw that it was on Amazon. With ten episodes in its first season, I figured that it would be the perfect antidote to my Sons of Anarchy marathon, which was a nightmare in itself.

This show, though. I feel like everyone likes it because everyone else likes it. I’d watched 4/5 episodes before I saw any reviews and my reaction was, ‘whaa’. It has a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The critics have spoken!

It started off well but then I realised it was just another show about terrible people doing terrible things, and oh look, something sad happens and…they go back to being terrible. The aspect that intrigues people is probably the whole Bachelor (which I’ve never watched) scenario. However, the show mainly focuses on the nasty shit the producers do and acts like some kind of expose. The showrunner apparently worked on The Bachelor, so I guess she’s in her element here. However, is it really an expose when anyone with some common sense knew exactly how much the producers manipulated things? It’s not rocket science.

Either way, I’ll probably continue to watch the show because of Michael Rady. I’m weak. I’ve also seen some interesting commentary on the second season, so…watch this space.

Pokemon No: The latest dumb thing in a long line of dumb things


So let me get this straight, a bunch of people are now obsessed with a game wherein they venture into the real world in order to catch ‘virtual’ Pokemon. People are leaving their houses to catch virtual Pokemon. Kind of like a fruitless Easter egg hunt. This is straight up foolishness.

Besides the sheer amount of data that the creators will collect (where’s Snowden when we need him? /s), this game not only seems stupid but depressingly pointless. Throw in the fact that people have died and fallen off cliffs in the name of catching nothing at all, this has to be the dumbest shit that’s infected the planet in the last month.

It’s not like we needed to increase the amount of potential muggers, sketchy characters, trespassers and idiots too busy glaring at smartphones while walking in the streets. And we definitely don’t need it to dominate the news. ‘People play video game!!!’ isn’t exactly newsworthy.

Brain cells are wasting away and there’s nobody to catch ’em all. Pity.

Sons of Bromanarchy

Sons of Anarchy ¦ FX

A man in his early 30s struggles to find a balance in his life between being a new dad and his involvement in a motorcycle club.

Well. This will go down as another show that didn’t live up to the hype. Not even during some of the earlier seasons. I can only hope that this show was just less idiotic when watched on a weekly basis. I’m not the best binge watcher, so it has taken me about 3 weeks to get through the first six seasons. Right now I’m on season 7. Imagine my shock when I saw that the first episode’s run time was 1 hr 15 minutes. Marilyn Manson showed up as a prisoner. And Courtney Love as a preschool teacher. Goodness. There has been a lot of fast forwarding to say the least. Continue reading “Sons of Bromanarchy”

Throwback Thursday – Justin Timberlake’s initial ‘mirror, mirror’ moment


I see that Justin Timberlake was in the news this week for getting into a ‘twitter feud’ and not seeing the problem with his attitude to certain things. I think the real conundrum is that anyone thinks he’s intelligent and self-aware enough to see anything that he does wrong.

He laid it all out for us back during his Nsync days!

I recently heard this song for the first time in what has to be well over 10 years and it’s so fucking ridiculous. NGL, it is still one of my fave Nsync jams but the amount of arrogance in this song…

I’m pleased to announce that SPN fans are still pleasant individuals…


Or not, because what I’m announcing is the opposite.

So, I was checking my emails from YouTube the other day – I do so every now and then because I have it filtered on account due to too many annoying notifications. I have a couple of clips from Supernatural uploaded, typically clips from or before season 3 and they tend to get more comments than any of my amazing videos that I took the time to put together for no real reason at all. My most popular video is one set to a Nickelback song with awful audio because I used Audacity to cut the song and screwed up somehow. It’s kind of fitting.

To get to the story, what happened was that I saw that someone had left a comment on one of these videos – something along the lines of, ‘[Name], shut the fuck up’ and I went onto the video page and was confused. I don’t really read the comments because…they’re all the same shit and it’s been, what…eight years? So I replied with a simple ‘??’ – perhaps I could actually asked a question but, ain’t nobody got time for that. They hit me back and told me to shut the fuck up too! I thought it was hilarious. I pointed out that I was genuinely wondering why they had just randomly told someone to shut the fuck up (without responding to them – hence why I even bothered replying) and their response was ‘Oh, I thought you had the same opinion. My bad’? Continue reading “I’m pleased to announce that SPN fans are still pleasant individuals…”

I am officially ashamed of my country.

I am officially ashamed of my country – if I can call it that.

Before yesterday, I was one of those people who had never voted before. If you tell people that you didn’t vote, depending on who you are, you might get an earful. People will tell you that your vote could be the difference and what not, but in some ways, all it does is make you complicit when the vote is read out. The same way that not voting does. Yesterday, I felt as if I finally had to make a stand (for my own benefit if anything). It helped that I wasn’t voting for a particular party. As I write this Labour – who I’d probably vote for – are unravelling rapidly. The result largely came about due to their lapses.

Anyway. Another reason why I’ve never bothered is that in a lot of the developed world at least, there is an increasingly ageing population. There are more over 60s than anyone else. There are so many of them that what they want is what we end up with. Apparently, they run this bitch now. America – watch out. The silver-haired people will fuck you all over and stab you in the front. That’s exactly what has happened in the UK. The UK has just held a referendum on whether or not it leaves the EU (European Union). So basically, we all voted either to ‘Leave’ or ‘Remain’. Leave won. That is to say, the people who have used every dirty, racist, xenophobic trick in the book have won.

I could not be more disgusted. Continue reading “I am officially ashamed of my country.”
