Fangirl Friday

IT'S BACK!!!!! It's a short one but I'm just getting back into the swing of things. Also, the site looks a bit different. So there's that too.

On with the show!

Getting What You Want Song of the Week

Get On Your Knees - Nicki Minaj feat. Ariana Grande

*clutches pearls* Have you actually listened closely to the lyrics of this song? Nicki is all about female empowerment and female pleasure and she doesn't mince words in this sexy track. Nicki goes after what she wants and she doesn't really care what you think about it. The song is steamy and makes me feel like I can conquer the world.

TV Show that Shouldn't Be as Good as It Is of the Week

Bojack Horseman

I know I spoke about Bojack Horseman back in April but the second season has just been released on Netflix so it bears repeating: THIS SHOW IS INCREDIBLE. I'm reading back what I wrote about it the first time and I legitimately feel exactly the same way (and am doing the same thing) so I'm just going to repost it, because FUCK YOU, I CAN.

This show, you guys. This motherfucking show. Netflix is churning out the hits like nobody's business. On the surface, the show seems crass and crude, but when you really look at it, it tackles some very real issues like abuse, the portrayal of women in media, neglect and other topical themes. Obviously, it's also hilarious and has a killer cast. I'm actually going through the show pretty slowly, because I'm enjoying to so much. I'm trying to savour it. One cool thing that I like is that the show actually has a running plot. Most animated series are pretty stand-alone, but Bojack has running jokes, a series long story arc and recurring characters. Highly recommend, go watch it now.  

Flashback of the Week

Backstreet Boys

After seeing and loving Magic Mike XXL last week, my love of the Backstreet Boys has been completely rekindled. My first loves, my first concert, the Backstreet Boys were everything to me back in the day and it's been so wonderful to revisit them and see that they still actually hold up after all these years. Their music is often times slightly ridiculous and overly manufactured but the fact that they were so marketable and in my ears still so listenable is definitely a feat of achievement.
