On the Real Tho

Hahaha! I laugh because I actually like the Dobre Brothers and this song shouldn’t have made it on the list given that I already watched the video.

I don’t know how many of you know the brothers, but they might not ring a bell because they’re not famous (as yet) and they’re actually YouTubers currently trying their voices out on the YouTube rap scene. 

Maybe I’ll just talk about the lyrics or point out how many times they do a backflip because, really, I’ve seen this video so it’s going to be hard to react to it and they’re known for doing backflips.

Also, my reactions may not be your cup of tea. It might be sarcastic and I also tear lyrics apart. Let’s react to it in 3…2…1…

0:01: The beat, though! And it’s shot in New York City, once the city of big dreams.

0:08: Their jackets are SLAYING! If it’s one thing, these boys know how to dress.

0:34: Backflip. Lucas.

0:36: That escalated quickly. Another backflip; this time by Cyrus.

0:37: You can’t judge. You can’t talk. You just sit and hate. Step it up. Show us up. Show what you create… Currently just nodding my head along.

0:44: And another backflip! Thank you, Marcus.

0:45: Time to stick the truth. If you don’t change the game. Nobody won’t remember you… But I don’t want to be remembered! 

0:50: On the real tho. On the real tho. On the…

1:01: Come in Lucas!

1:03: You didn’t know before, but now make sure you better know… I feel so threatened! Why is he threatening me?

1:16: Try to bring me down. I stay above. We doing well… Don’t let people bring you down. Regardless of what they try to do to bring you down, stay focus because with God on your side, who can be against you?

1:21: You can’t break me. God has eyes on our back and our phones… Honestly, I don’t know if he’s saying ‘God has eyes on’ or just ‘God has our’ because he’s saying it so fast. Eh!

1:25: On the real tho. On the real tho… 

1:29: Lucas be getting his dance groove on with that fancy hand gesture. Haha!

1:37: And here comes the brother who can’t wait for his name to be written in the stars: Darius. Lowkey, his eyebrows are goals.

1:46: That smiling shot of the brothers is the best shot of the video.

1:47: I got my brothers. We counting we counting. No, we ain’t stopping… The Count, is that you, bro?

1:58: Haters wanting this. They just sit and wish… Yes, because it’s easy to hate someone who is going after their dream wishing that you were in their place. I mean, why hate when you can be happy for others?

2:01: On the real tho. On the real tho… 

2:12: Last, but not least, Lucas’s other half, Marcus. *shrugging* I don’t understand how people mix up the twins. They’re very easy to tell apart.

2:18: Backflip! Brought to you by Marcus. 

2:19: Listen to them haters. They just beggin for attention. Sit yourself down. I’mma take you to detention… SAVAGE!

2:28: You just hating like the rest. You ain’t nothing new. Words mean nothing. I’m all about the action…

Image result for gif mic drop

2:38: HAHAHA! 

2:47: Backflips! I think it’s 7 in total. I lost count.

On the real tho, you don’t need a million dollars to make a video look good. On the real tho, the Dobre twins give you happy vibes. 

On the real ‘tho, this is Dobre Brothers before fame. When they blow up, I won’t be expecting any more family-oriented content videos or music videos such as these.

This Reaction Music Week theme was a blast! I’ll like to do Part two next week God’s willing (if you’ll like to leave suggestions), but I already have another theme in mind so I’ll probably do part two next month. God bless and I pray you have a safe and blessed weekend.

Versace on the Floor

The title of the song! I can use it in a short mystery story. 😛

I remember liking Bruno Mars when he first came out. He had a great voice, but he was vastly underrated. He sang about love, heartbreak, and regrets. I liked ‘Just the Way You Are’, ‘It Will Rain’, ‘When I Was Your Man’, and ‘Marry You’, but my utmost favorite song of his was ‘Old & Crazy’ although it’s only a minute and fifty-five seconds. It has that old jazzy vibe that I love and I thought the song was adorable.

Will you still call me baby when I’m old and crazy?
When I’m old and crazy, will you still call me baby?
Will you act the same? Will you laugh the same?
Will you think I’m pretty when my hair’s grey?
Will you still call me baby when I’m old and crazy?

It’s still so beautiful! ❤

Anyway, I’m not here to talk about that song. I’m here for his latest, something about Versace whispering as it falls silently to the floor. I don’t listen to music like I used to and I don’t watch music videos anymore. I don’t think I’m out of the loop or missing anything because it’s only garbage that has been polluting the airwaves lately.

Also, my reactions may not be your cup of tea. It might be sarcastic and I also tear lyrics apart. Let’s react to it in 3…2…1…

0:06: Bruno’s wardrobe is already clashing with the hotel elevators and he’s not even singing a note as yet. His outfit looks like his pajamas.

Also, ALSO, if that’s the look of love, then I need whatever drugs he’s taking asap!

0:24: Oh, hi Zendaya! Wait… Zendaya? As the love interest? I know she is of age, but this already looks creepy, dude!

And that dress looks like tin foil.

0:27: Just call him Michael Jackson! He even smiles like MJ. 🙂

0:35: Oh, they’re going into separate rooms.

0:48: His room comes with a wicked glass piano so we know he’s about to get his groove on and Z is going to be listening to his vocals from the other side of the wall. Think I’ll skip a bit.

1:34: Underneath the chandelier, We’re dancin’ all alone Haha! No, you’re not. She’s in the other room and she’s not even underneath a chandelier. You’re not even underneath one, either. Come on, Bruno, match the lyrics of your song to the video if you’re going to be singing about chandeliers. This is how you dance alone underneath the chandelier:

2:15: Versace on the floor… Yes, because Dior is too precious to hit the floor. Wait, did Donatella approve this? Why couldn’t it be Vera Wang on the… oh, right, it doesn’t sound as sophisticated as Versace and Vera Wang wouldn’t sponsor this. *shrugging* Oh, well!

2:29: Bruno is feeling the music more than Zendaya. He probably wishes he was the one wearing Versace instead and singing to himself. 

2:41: I unzip the back to watch it fall… Yes, because you have telekinesis and you can totally unzip the back of her dress from the other room. Even science can’t explain this.

3:08: I’m sorry. I can’t get over the fact that Zendaya is in this video. Why? Just why? It just feels so wrong to be objectifying her sexually. Plus, she looks so cheap in that tin foil. That is Hollywood for you.

Image result for gif versace on the floor

3:12: Don’t be confused by my smile. ‘Cause I ain’t ever been more for real, for real… So, when you smile at other times, does it mean that you’re simply conceited? Or does it mean that you’re deceiving your fan girls?

Image result for gif bruno mars smile

Image result for gif bruno mars smile

Eh! Too bad because, sir, you have a great smile.

3:22: Zendaya lip syncing along to the song. How can she know the words if this is the first time that she’s hearing it? How can she know the words if she has never met him before (as the beginning of the video suggests)? Maybe he played in the hotel bar earlier singing that very same song and she somehow memorized it word for word? Whatever the case may be, that’s going to be her favorite karaoke song from now on until a new Bruno Mars’ song comes along.

4:50: This pose!

Image result for gif versace on the floor zendaya

It’s like you see this somewhat crucifixion pose in almost everyone’s music videos. 

5:14: Of course, the dress ends up on the floor. That was the goal for the last 5 minutes of this boring video.

5:30: That’s the end? Thank goodness! 

I was told how classy and elegant this video is because this world is blinded by the stars and the glitters that they fail to actually watch the video with open eyes. There is nothing classy or subtle about this video. The lyrics are not even pleasing to the ears. I don’t miss listening to this sexually-objecting-women Bruno Mars at all. 

Positive Monday: Love makes the world go round 💙

 :

It’s Monday, yo! Let’s talk about love.

If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.
Michael Jackson

Do you truly love yourself? Do you take the time to focus on yourself? To reflect on yourself and see how far you’ve come and where you want to go?

 :

God loves you, but you also have to learn to love yourself (if you don’t). If you compare yourself to others, stop doing so. Let go of the past and forgive those who have done you wrong. If you don’t have a hobby/interest, pick one (or two, or three…) up. Laugh at yourself and remember, don’t judge anyone else by their outward appearance.

Love yourself and arm yourself with a smile. Blessed Monday to all of you.

What song is stuck in your head (or on permanent rotation in your CD or MP3 player) these days? Why does it speak to you?

At the moment it’s Michael Jackson’s ‘Remember the Time’. I am currently writing a beautiful love story (requested by a friend) and I was looking for lighthearted music to listen to. I remembered this song from my childhood and I’ve had it on heavy rotation while writing the scene where the two characters realize that they’re falling for each other.

My verdict on why ‘The Mummy’ is going to be HUGE this summer

You didn’t ask for this, but I’m going to deliver it anyway. And by the way, the word HUGE is meant to be sarcastic. It can fail HUGELY or it can deliver HUGELY. I don’t see it being the talk of the summer, but we’ll see.

I can’t remember when was the last time I was HYPED for a trailer release (Maybe I say this every time Tom Cruise is about to drop a film, I am not sure), but after viewing the trailer for The Mummy several times, I am ready to get this movie over and done with. 

Based on the trailer, the movie can either sink or swim, but I’m going to take a gamble here just as Universal did with TC and say that it’s going to be the success of the summer no one saw coming (or asked for)… at least overseas.

Why?

No, not because of Tom Cruise.

Curiosity.

People are curious to see if The Mummy can hold its own with Brendan Fraser’s trilogy (or should I say without Fraser?). A reminder that Fraser’s franchise was not the original. I’m tired of fans calling it the original. The original was in 1932. Movie educate yourself if you’re going to argue.

Plus, fans are riding on this movie to be successful. If they want more films about gods and monsters then this movie have to come out tops.

Universal is game in establishing their very own cinematic universe and hiring Tom for this reboot shows their seriousness. And let’s face it: Tom embodies what a movie star should be. He is chosen to usher in a new world of gods and monsters where Luke Evans as Dracula failed miserably. Originally, Dracula Untold was supposed to be the first film in the Universal Monsterverse. It was supposed to have linked to this film, but things didn’t go according to plan and just as Tom doesn’t acknowledge that he is Legend, the Dracula movie is now non-cannon.

Yeah, not gonna happen. I don’t like you, either.

If this movie works out, then we’ll see stories on the Wolf Man, the Invisible Man, Count Dracula, and Frankenstein. 

Who is the Mummy?

Airbrushed for the gods, but this is the FACE of
the shared monster universe, so better get used to it!

Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond; Kingsmen) takes on the role of the mummy, making it a first for a female to take on a character of such in cinematic history. I first saw Boutella dance in the music video for Michael Jackson’s Hollywood Tonight.

Image result for sofia boutella hollywood tonight gif

In the trailer, we see Sofia’s character being mummified alive. She is awakened years later by Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) and she seeks vengeance. Or does she?

Is she after a new King? Is she going to reincarnate her lover through Nick Morton? Is this the reason why she allows him to live? Erm… 

What exactly is Tom chosen to do?

 :

Nick Morton is a greedy treasure hunter. He is also ex-Navy Seal.

You’ve seen the trailer and you’ve seen that Tom Cruise’s Nick Morton is unkillable. Morton dies in a plane crash only to wake up in a morgue and go to battle with an ancient Egyptian princess after she wakes up from her sleep.

Some fans are still curious about this Morton character. Like, is he a direct descendant of Van Helsing? *shrugging* Maybe he IS Van Helsing! Base on the trailer I know he cannot die because he’s been brought back to serve Princess Ahmanet. ALSO! Morton has a thing going on with Jenny Halsey (Annabelle Wallis) and Ahmanet is about to make this a love triangle… of sorts. 

Morton is a mystery because he has no former history with the about to be rebooted films. I am getting potential Mummy vibes from him.

Loving the shirt, Tom. Is that Tommy H?

So say what you want about Mr. Cruise, the man is going to deliver ‘big time’ this summer. It’s going to be an Ancient Egyptian terrifying action treasure-seeking adventure and I’ll be there on day one. Hopefully, this is the last I talk of The Mummy… this month… but the trailer is so good! 😛
