I don’t do “Adult” Stuff. I’m Just a BIG KID.

10 Feb

So recently I was attacked by my mother who feels that instead of doing the “adult” stuff she used to do in the ’80s, I enjoy stuff for kids. She tacks all kinds of “mental” disorders to my enjoyment of video games, toys, cartoons (Japanese anime, I try to explain the difference), sometimes reading children’s fiction and manga/comic books, and playing laser tag at my local bowling alley. Don’t get me wrong, I go to clubs to buy $10 dollar drinks. I’ve only been to one concert, and that was for Utada when she was in town. I prefer to spend my “happy time” doing things I love. I hang with friends, but I’m not always under them like she was. I need my space for introspection and relaxation. My more extroverted mother doesn’t get that. She can’t really understand people who think differently from her. Just like she can’t really understand my love for ALL KINDS of music. Every time I listen to rock music, or K-pop, I’m considered “weird” or demented because I’m a black girl who doesn’t care about Beyonce or the latest in wack rap music. I’m tired of being called the next Michael Jackson and  I’m tired of being pinned with the Peter Pan syndrome.

Not to unload my familial issues on everyone, because that’s not the point of this article.

The point is it’s ridiculous how there’s this “code” that defines you as an adult. Like you have to make these certain “rites of passage” to be considered a successful adult and your own personal quirks are not included. You’re not allowed to like what you like, regardless if what you like is timeless and wholesome. It’s as if what I like harms anyone, which it doesn’t. I do enjoy doing adult things like taking vacations, spending extra time with a lover, and partying all night, but why can’t I also enjoy a good Disney movie, an interesting video game, and a well-made toy also? I feel people who let go of their childhood interests are only making themselves older. Some of them even look older. My uncle gets the same hounding, and he’s 10 years older than me! He was working on being an entrepreneur, and what did my family tell him? Get a real job.

The thing that really fires me up is when people want to pin immaturity with interests. I always thought one’s “actions” defined maturity. And I can name many people who do “adult” things irresponsibly. Like drinking and driving…To me, THAT’S immaturity. Or drinking so much that you miss work altogether…Recently, something like this happened on youtube where a girl age 17 attacked my channel saying that I was in my 20s and liked kiddie things, calling me immature…but what kind of action was that?

To me, we are living in the 21st century and all kinds of “old” and  “outdated” rules are being demolished, especially the societal behavioral standards that are just outright dumb.

What “rites of passage” am I talking about? Some are very important, but some are downright stupid.

1) By age 8 you should know how to ride a bike and should know how to clean a home.

2) By age 12 you should have had a crush or boyfriend/girlfriend

3) By age 14 you should no longer be playing with toys (not even looking at them)

4) By age 17 you should have your driver’s license, and should be full-bodied

5) By age 25 you should have a job, college experience, or marriage with kids, and this is where you shouldn’t have time for cartoons and video games.

Well, I have a job and college experience, but I still like what I like. And what I choose to do with my money and time is my choice. Ya know, it’s as if  people don’t like to see others happy. When they’re miserable and lonely, they want you to feel their unhappiness.

BTW I can’t stand my family.

So have any of you had this experience where you’ve been pinned with the Peter Pan syndrome? Leave a comment and let me know! Shout out to all of my Big Kids!

Racebending.com from the Last Airbender Moviev

5 Jul

Racebending.com.

This is a way to bring attention to the racial discrimination in the movie The Last Airbender. All of the heroes were white, when clearly in the Last Airbender the culture is based on Inuit and Asian culture, particularly Chinese. And though the face structures are similar, it is obvious that they don’t look much like the characters.

Of course in most live actions they don’t. But I guess since Paramount hasn’t been doing well in the recession, they want to get it to sell. And a white face sells. It’s a bit interesting, I don’t know the real circumstance. I will be doing my own research.

I don’t think it can be compared to Dragonball Evolution. I mean, not only was Goku Asian, but he just didn’t look anything like Goku. Bulma was totally off, and so was Master Roshi, who lacked the gray hair. And Piccolo…sigh…I don’t know.

But with Avatar, the faces look a bit similar. And they probably played the role. But it would be better if they cast a group of people who were actually from the culture, rather than slapping a Caucasian and making them pretend to be Asian.

Maybe some of them were part Asian…I heard Aang was, but they just don’t look the part. They have to add more diversity in order to attract more people.

I was just upset Tauft wasn’t in it. The casting is shocking, and it’s ashame the only one who is South Asian was Zuko, but it is an American cartoon after all…

But I hope the movie was close to the show in story too. I’m not one to go around claiming racism, but gosh, why not place an Inuit or Asian in the movie. This is the 21st Century, right?

Generation Next: Do you remember the late 90s, Y2K?

5 Jul

Anyone who grew up in Generation Next probably remembers the following between 1995-2003:

Pop culture……We are generation “Scorpio” which also defines our generation. All we care about is sex, violence, and power. Our generation is marked by everything dark and mysterious…we hate superficiality and anything “cheerful”…anything mystical, psychic, and occult. We transformed ideas of tranformation, lost the adult “rites of passage” other generations before us had, and are the only generation who can’t find jobs in the recession, still living with parents well into our twenties, and take a while to get married, if at all. But we still find ways to rebel against society, use the internet as our way of gaining social power, and stick to ourselves in our secretive and mistrustful minds. We are also quite an emotional generation….dangerously emotional.

Television

Anyone who is anybody can’t forget the grand children Networks of Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Disney Channel. Rugrats and ALL That defined Nick, until the Rugrats grew up and Kenan and Kel left All That and so did Nick Cannon, and Cartoon Cartoon Fridays, Toonami, Ed Edd and Eddy, and Powerpuff Girls defined Cartoon Network. But MTV was infested with a bunch of teeny boppers who began filling the channel with their pop videos. At least we still had Michael Jackson… VH1 was filled with oldies. And BET actually had funny comedians on Comic View and showed black movies and shows. Let’s not forget Nick Jr. owned Blues Clues, Face, and Little Bill, while Playhouse Disney had Little Mermaid and Madeline…they even used to show Timon and Pumba, Arabian Nights, and other “Disney-like shows”. Back then, cable was just becoming the “It” thing. I still remember My Brother and Me and Clarissa Explains It All, Sabrina the Teenage witch. Fox and ABC were big back then, UPN too…Sister, Sister, Smart Guy, which also came on Disney Channel along with Boy Meets World, Growing Pains, and Brotherly Love…with those Lawrence Brothers that everyone loved. Disney even had shows like the Famous Jett Jackson, So Weird, and The Jersey. Courage the Cowardly Dog was like So Weird…except weirder…Scooby-Doo was still big. We liked a lot of mysteries like Shelby Woo and the occult like So Weird and Goosbumps….we also loved Power Rangers and Anime as kids. Barney was even in our slot time, though I always preferred Kid Songs….and Zoom, the new version. Aurthur was our show too! And even Sesame Street, especially Elmo’s World. And we weren’t too far from old classic cartoons from Tex Avery, Toonheads like Bugs Bunny, and even some Animaniacs….best time for television. In later years, we supported shows like Lizzie Maguire, the first tween show to make over a million viewers, and That’s So Raven which was the first longest running show on Disney Channel. We loved Lindsey Lohan…until she got cracked up.

Remember tha babies who could talk?

What a creative show! Back when Klasky was running things: Rugrats!

The Simpsons, South Park, 90210, Living Single, Baywatch, X-Files, Law and Order, and other nighttime television. Not to mention, watching the Bulls game was far more entertaining than it is now.

Technology

Computer was just becoming a part of the home, and laptops was spreading jobs across the nation. And everyone used to chat on AOL…it used to talk back and say “You’ve got Mail” which used to be so cool. Of course, I was always on yahoo…..Then MP3s came out, though you could only play one song at the time. CDs were still pretty big. Downloading became big like two years after 2000. But people still bought CDs, and everyone had a CD player with big headphones….The DVD player was it, but then everyone found out Playstation 2 could play DVDs and it was done. Playstation 2 was like the biggest thing, though Dreamcast and Gamecube also marked the generation. Of course, realistic graphics were the biggest thing back then. LOL Remember Street Fighter, Tekken, Final Fantasy? And NBA Live was regular too.

Playstation, remember? LOL

Literature

It varied, actually towards the end, kids stopped reading and started again. Babysitters’ Club, Sweet Valley, and American Girl marked the generation. For boys it was between How to Eat Fried Worms, There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom, Help! I’m trapped in Obedient School Again, Anamorphs, and Goooooosssbumpsss!!!! Who doesn’t remember Goosbumps? That was like the biggest thing. Then Harry Potter came out like in 1999 or before, and that took over. A Series of Unfortunate Events was big too. And Pirates of the Caribbean marked the later generation.

GOOOOSSSEEEBUMMMPSS!

Music

It sucked balls. Pop idols like Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls took over the industry. Who can forget the Hansen brothers? Pure lamety. Then here came Britney, the first teen solo act, and she influenced the whole world to come out with pop imitations. Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Mandy Moore who dyed her hair for the “occasion”, and all of these pop groups like Dream and Play, and just too many pop artists to count. And then the boy Britney Spears came out, Aaron Carter. Even black people changed genres like After Dark and Blaque…TLC was the biggest group…until, well you know. It was back when Jesse McCartney was part of the group Dreamstreet. Hoku and Myra marked Disney and Nick movies for their contributions, and Baha Men music swept the world by storm. Then in 2001, it seemed Dark Child took over everything, and so did 50 cent…later Avril Lavigne stole Britney’s shine in the early Y2K years. Then all these poprock artists came out of the closet, of course singers like Michelle Branch, Lindsay Pagano, Vanessa…can’t remember the rest of her name, and even Pink came out of the closet with her “real self”. Evanescence also dominated the industry. Metallic and Coldplay were even at their peek. All the most hard-core music marked our generation….along with the most giddy… If only Panic! At the Disco had been around….

Britney Spears when she was a little innocent...only a little...

The wildest group around! Spice Girls!

Original famous style! Avril Lavigne!

50 Cent back in 2003...

Fashion

I remember overalls….which no one wears anymore. Jordans were popular too…Capri pants were the “it” thing…and for some reason…ponchos….baggy pants, bandannas and scarves, and surfer boy hair cuts. Jean jackets and Timbaland boots were in too. That’s what Spongbob used to remind me of back in 2002, his debut…a surfer, valley dude, which those bleached-blond idiots were the “it” thing. Now, Spongebob is just a geeky idiot…Ponytails, and scrunchies were popular. Lip gloss had just become a big thing. Belly tops were “oh-so revealing” but not compared to now…especially if you consider Gaga’s “no pants rule”. Skorts were popular, and no one wear those either. Numbered tees, like with “57” or “23” and words all over the pants. And because of 9/11, everyone was wearing red, white, and blue. Feathery and hot looking jackets marked later generations. Like this:

Jackets of early Y2K...

jacket

And these checkered and worded jeans:

checkered pants?

Backstreet Boys look...LOL

Words and Sayings

The words and sayings that came back were “Cool” and “Awesome”, but we also added “Totally hot” and “bogus” and “wack” and “corny” and “lame” and who can forget “psyche”. “Wicked Cool” and other sayings that are too funny to repeat. “For shizzle my nizzle” was popular too, and you could add of “izzles” if you liked. And” then “it’s off the heezy for sheezy. “Da Bomb” was it too. And “Bad” or “Sharp” was in too. “Totally Rad” was in too. LOL This is funny.

This is really a walk down memory lane…

I feel sorry for this generation. Sorry later generation, you missed out on the best age to be a kid. Your Television Network producers have gotten so stupid they can’t even read their own network titles. Instead they show everything but music on MTV and live actions on Cartoon Network. Not to mention, the face of Disney is no longer Mickey, but Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus….

No one uses their voices in music anymore, it’s now been replaced by cheap equipments that electronically “disguises” real voices.

Glad I grew up in Generation Next.

Movies

Movies ranged between Sixth Sense, Scissors hands, well really anything with Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp. Matrix marked the 21st Century. We also had “Ritchie Rich”, remember the little blond boy from Home Alone? And let’s not forget the Disney movies. The best movies in the 90s were the Disney movies, hands down, like Lion King, Huntchback of Notre Dame, and Beauty and the Beast. Of course, there were some pretty good thrillers here and there, and other children’s movies like Little Rascals which had Mary-Kate and Ashley, America’s Twins. Also, Dennis the Menace. Remember Free Willy? LOL That movie still makes me laugh. Childrens’ movies had reach their peak in the 90s. The first child actor won an acting award, Haley Joel Osment, and you used to see him everywhere before his sister went all “Hannah Montana”…though he still acts as Sora on Kingdom Hearts, which is all I care about.

American Girl dolls

Bratz dolls are Back 2010! This is also their 10th Anniversary!

5 Jul

Bratz are here! Take a peek at them!

http://www.bratz.com

There are so many different opinions about these dolls! Woo! So many!

One of the main concerns is

1) Lack of an edgy, outrageous approach, unlike the 2005 Bratz dolls.

This is my answer to that…so what? That was not the Bratz original style. In fact, that is when the Bratz LOST all of their diversity and originality. They DROPPED the Fashion Passions altogether because the lines became so intermingled with one another, they couldn’t come up with quality styles for each of the Bratz. Of course, there’s only so much individuality you can have before you just run out of ideas, but at least have one line that expresses the individual style. Freestyle a little. I’m talking about lines like Style It, Xpress It, 1st Edition, Formal Funk…those kinds of lines where the Bratz had distinct fashion styles that they expressed. And the the themes allowed them the freedom to express their fashion passions.

We don’t want a repeat of 2005, we want a repeat of 2001-2004.

2) Lack of articulation

Did the Bratz ever have articulation? That’s what made the Bratz popular. The Bratz got new bodies now and so people said they didn’t see “articulation”. They said the feet aren’t as big, and the bodies don’t have curves…but the two dolls they saw had baggy clothes on and short hair cuts and three-inch shoes…They looked urban.

3) Bad quality material

I have to admit this is also my concern. Of course, we have to wait a while. MGA is spending a lot of money on Moxie Girls, and have just gotten over the court case. They probably don’t have the money they used to.

4)No creativity with the fashions and make-up

Don’t know. Because this is only the first line, and only one outfit we saw, I can’t really say. But so far the Bratz look like they are right in style. Of course, no one can replace Carter Bryant. He probably had a huge hand in the make-up of Bratz. But hey, to me the Bratz look okay. Of course, I would like to see more make-up.

People were mad about the eyes, but I like the glossy approach.

So take a look at it, look out for it in stores, and look at the commercials and TV spots after this week!

I personally grew up with the Bratz dolls. My generation was actually the generation that they were directing these dolls to. At some point in generation next, more than any generation before us, we had a hard time playing with just ANY toys. In fact, our generation was tired of the glitzy, glam Barbie, the same old Blonde and pink, no diversity, no edge (which I think this generation is retreating into AGAIN). But as the generation of “Scorpios”, as Generation Next is also known, we just were attracting to the darker side of things, edgier music like punk rock, and into the hidden issues of things, not the surface of everything. We were not superficial, neither were we completely into the “fake” outer shell of Barbie.

Basically, to us, she was a plastic blonde bimbo, who believed she could do anything, especially with her unrealistic body, like big boobs and a tiny waist, and everything being pink including the “Barbie car” and the “Barbie mansion”. And what black, Asian, Native American, or Latin can relate to that kind of girl? None. Even the dolls that were supposed to represent diversity proved less than adequate to Barbie. Who even remembers any of their names? They all wore the same outfit as Barbie except in a different color.

Well, actually the problem wasn’t even only that. Some of the “still-superficial idiots” dumped Barbie, the original bimbo, for a new one, Britney Spears. Critics and Analysts alike realized more girls were buying CDs instead of dolls, especially with the rise of teeny, bubblegum pop music and CD players, and even…*gasp back then* Mp3 players.

And even today, barely anyone buys dolls….unless it has some pop singer’s face on it.

Back then, all doll companies took up a challenge. All companies were competing to bring tweens back into the doll world. All were trying to create dolls that fit the generation that would be Y2K. 21st Century kids needed something fresh, something new, something that fit how far the world has come. We needed a dolls line that was trendy.

For some time, the only doll company who had any measure of success with reaching tweens in even a small way was Mattel and their lines of Generation Girl Barbie and Diva Starz. And even though they were popular for a little while, they only lasted each about three years or four. Zodiac Girls had a small success and Mystikats. But none of the dolls could beat out the pop star Britney Spears….

In 2000, when I was 10, I happened to stumble upon a website that had this urban beat, and these urban-looking girls, with sneak peeks at the clothing. The website was under construction, but I’ll never forget the song. Because it had this “come on” in between every Bratz outfit. At first I thought it was going to be a cartoon, but then…

In 2001 a commercial came onto the screen that was like this:

I liked the urban tone, but was shocked when I saw them! I immediately went back to my computer that year, and saw that the site had finally been constructed. It was the dolls that I fell in love with. They had sass, diversity, urban originality, and they were just….everything Barbie was NOT. They represented the girls of the 21st Century, Generation Next: Edgy, dark, diverse…girls who didn’t follow the norm, but did their own thing. Girls who took risks. It represented the many styles that were becoming popular at the Turn of the Century. And most of all, it gave Mattel the first run for their money EVER since their debut.

Bratz was a creative edition to the doll world. At first, Bratz didn’t do so well the first holiday season, but unlike most doll companies, MGA had nothing else to work with. They had gotten a good designer on their team, and they didn’t give up. I had first started joining online fan groups back then, and I thought it was cool (never knew about Myspace and Facebook or WordPress, I was on Yahoo Groups the biggest Bratz area at the time ;p). I would keep up with ALL the details.

Then the next summer they released Funk N’ Glow, and it was over. The Bratz boomed in the markets. After that, all the wannabe copies came. The only one that even proved to be measurable was Myscene, which was liked for their beauty, realistic look, and City-like soap-opera webisodes. They were the first to do it, now LIV is doing it…and they weren’t kiddie episodes either. They were very mature. Bratz didn’t really get all into that. They were not a doll line to imitate, though they did imitate the movie deal. But the movie was NOTHING like the others, Bratz the Video Starrin and Stylin.

Of course there’s a price you pay for fame. When too many people start to know you and love you, of course, eventually you lose your identity and what originally made you popular. A new generation was coming into the mix. The “Sagittarius” generation, who is still the tweens of today, are running the show. And though they are very diverse, they lack the same edge and intense approach we have. They are much more freedom-oriented, diverse, open-minded, mutable, and often VERY superficial. They are blinded by fame and glory, so the cheesy, smiley Barbie might be right up their alley. And the type of Bratz they liked was the 2005 ones, where Bratz lost their identities in Rock Angelz and Dynamite, until the point they dropped the Bratz Passion Fashions altogether, but got PLENTY of attention. They can be a bit rebellious, but they don’t mind conventional either.

Well, then there was this ongoing battle between Mattel and MGA on who had the rights of the Bratz dolls. At first all seemed to be going in Mattel’s favor to the point Bratz were to be removed from shelves by 2009…but then, something miraculous happened. A new case opened up in the Appeals Court, and MGA won the rights to Bratz once again!

I mean really, what would Mattel do with the Bratz but throw them away? Nobody would buy a Mattel-owned Bratz because Mattel lacks what Bratz had: an Iranian CEO.

The Television Industry….SUCKS! (again)

5 Jul

This is the second part to my last journal entry. And it’s been bugging me for a while now as well. But the next thing that is irritating me is:

Television

Now, I won’t say television was always good in the past. They had some really crappy shows in the past, just like they do today, but today’s “idea” of creativity is just taking a dump on viewers.

Take a look at MTV. It has gotten so retarded. This channel used to be for MUSIC only. That’s why it’s called Music TV! It used to be MUSIC VIDEOS mostly. Then they got rid of TRL for some odd reason…oh, because stupid reality shows and Podcast shows began to air, even though TRL was shysty too, considering it allowed a bunch of teeny boppers to vote! And even though, yes music sucked back then too, it showed a variety of artists so you wouldn’t have to sit through hours of your least favorite singer. Now, it’s just marathons and marathons of women acting like sleazes, running around pulling each other’s hair out. And one show was okay which was Flavor of Love…until EVERY SINGLE SHOW THAT AIRED MIMICKED IT! Now there is no variety on this Network. It is just infested with reality shows. Even VH1 is following suit. And VH1 is supposed to be VIDEOS! What the Hollow! But these stupid children don’t know variety. Even the teenagers have no concept of what creativity and variety means. MTV’s shows don’t even fit it’s title! Why is MOTHER AT 16 on there? That has nothing to do with music!

I really feel sorry for the boys. MTV isn’t for them anymore. At least it used to play music all genders could get into. Now, it’s a woman’s world….which I hate to be sexist, though I am a woman, but women are not very creative. All they want to see is drama, which becomes repetitive and just outright stupid.

MTV used to be for college students. Now these teeny boppers are taking over, ruining the network.

MTV sucks

What happened MTV?

Stop it MTV, get off the Air!

MTV used to promote new artists and give underground artists a chance. They used to promote artists. I mean they have MTV Iggy, but no one knows about that flapping show!

Killjoy

MTV a conspiracy???

MTV is taking a fart on it\’s viewers!

I know these kids have to have serious brain damage to feed into this poop. They like to eat this crap! This cowshisuck!

And apparently, MTV is not the only corporation that can’t read it’s own Network title. WTFOOL Cartoon Network?

Cartoon Network…LOL…Cartoon Network used to be a network full of great cartoons. In my youth, we grew up in the best age for television. We not only had old classic shows on Toonheads, which explained the history of the shows and showed the shows since 1930s, Tex Avery shows, Acme Hour full of Tweety and Bugs Bunny, Hanna-Barbara like Scooby-doo and Yogi Bear, but we had excellent original cartoons like Johnny Bravo, Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, Samarai Jack, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Cow and Chicken, O Canada, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Ed Edd and Eddy…..and last but not least Toonami. Toonami showed all the anime you could think of, plus some action animation, and super hero shows like Justice League with Batman and Superman, and there was even X-Men and Teen Titans and Puffy Ami Yumi. Even Captain Planet and Static Shock beats this shisuck, and they were the worst back in the day. I’d rather sit through five hours of Hamtaro before I watch this garbage!

Now look at Cartoon Network. They have stupid aspirin shows like 16 and TOTAL FLOCKING DRAMA ISLAND. They also got stupid crap shows like Camp Lazlo, if that hasn’t died already, and BEN 10! WTHALL! These shows can’t even relate to kids. Total Drama Island is like watching another MTV! I really do think that’s where Cartoon Network is getting some of their ideas for shows, I really do.  16? What kid who is watching Cartoon Network is 16? If they are, who would watch that crap? It’s a bunch of shallow cliche teenagers who do what the kids on MTV and Disney do (the other crapped-up channel). And where is the anime? These stupid kids don’t even watch anime. “It’s too boring” They said! Now I get it….kids are too dumb to even decipher a simple storyline in an anime. All they want is comedy. Again, no variety. It’s just the same stupid cartoons over and over again. Either they are total rip-offs of Spongebob *cough Flapjack cough* are more Disney Channel and MTV-like rip-off wannabe cartoons! And some kids have the nerve to defend this CRAP! *spit* They say “This is our generation. We don’t care about your golden age of cartoons.” Now I know the cartoons are brainwashing our kids to be idiots.

And wait that’s not all they adopted from MTV, they forgot they were CARTOON network and added CNREAL! Lord Have Mercy Kelly Clarkson Eddie Murpy! And kids defend this! Even a retarded person knows that cartoons have NOTHING to do with LIVE ACTION!! ARGGHHH!!!! It’s like the company never went to second grade before! Even a second grader knows that! They are not smarter than fifth graders! Oh wait, they are brainwashing these kids. Now the kids are just as dumb!

There are some smart kids left, so what\’s wrong with you \”CN\”?

CN sucks!

Oh the Day they KILLED Cartoon Network!

This is murder! This is scarier than watching a horror movie!

Cartoon Network must be making fun of their viewers right now saying, “Oh these kids are so stupid! They’ll watch anything as long as it looks like Hannah Montana.”

And that brings me to Disney. The person running Disney now is Anne Kathaway or something like that. Who the Hall put her in charge? Like I said, women, I’m sorry, but you are not very creative creatures when it comes to television. You suck in the variety department. And it’s as if Disney forgot all of it’s male viewers and are totally feeding into the female teeny-boppers. Isn’t that sexist? Oh, but now they have Disney XD, which many people might not have if they don’t have on Demand. And with that got rid of Toon Disney…sighs…what happened to the days when Disney was for everyone? The whole family. In fact, Hannah Montana wasn’t the face of Disney, Mickey Mouse was…and you know what happened to him? They threw him on a retarded show called Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. They are humiliating an iconic Disney character. Walt Disney would kill himself all over again. He should come back to haunt whoever is in charge because they are ruining not only this channel, but they are setting the pattern for other shows to be CRAP! And whatever happened to the real Disney classical movies? Well, Princess and the Frog was one step forward. But the kids only know Disney Channel! What the buck!

Then the shows that I remember were WAY better. Disney used to have The Jersey, The Famous Jett Jackson (which Hannah Montana ripped off), and my all-time favorite, So Weird, which we can blame it’s decline on “soccer moms”. I HATE soccer moms. Moms…mind your own business! No one cared what you watched when you popped in bugs bunny and scooby doo! I remember them showing shows like Growing Pains, Brotherly Love, Smart Guy, Boy Meets World, In a Heartbeat, Bug Juice, and Disney even showed old classical shows like Zorro, The Ink and Paint Club which was Mickey mouse all night, and a Wonderful World, they even showed the original Mickey Mouse Club!….and the Disney Channel Movies? AW MAN! They were the highlight of my day! They had unique plots. There just weren’t girl movies, but movies for the fellows too like Brink, Johnny Tsunami, Genius, Punkz, 13th Year, Can of Worms,  Horse Sense, Jumping Ship, Smart House, etc. Then the girly movies like Wish Upon a Star, Stepsister from Planet Weird, Zenon, Halloween Town, Susie Q, Model Behavior, Rev It Up, ! Aw man, the horror movies actually were it’s best. Like Hocus Pocus, Scream Team, Phantom of the Megaplex, Mom’s Got a date With a Vampire, Under Wraps, Don’t Look Under the Bed, Tower of Terror, etc! Just so many good shows! To me, I think the decline started with Lizzie Maguire because that’s when all the “teeny boppers” showed up and changed Disney, but there was still some varietal shows like Even Stevens, Phil of the Future, Naturally Sadie, The Proud Family, Kim Possible.Some movies were also good like Read It and Weep, Tru Confessions, Eddie’s Million Dollar Cook-off, Cheetah Girls (the first not the others), and I had no problem with the original High School musical until it got too ridiculous, like how do you have High School Musical over summer break? There is no school! stupid.

Now the only three shows that I liked on Disney was That’s So Raven, Phineas and Ferb, and Life with Derek. It gave Disney some variety instead of the SAME THING. But these kids are idiots. “It’s not funny..duh…” And Life with Derek was cancelled, the only REAL show during the Renaissance period of Disney CHANNEL. Why does every show have to be funny? See, that’s why everything is so repetitive. Because this generation lacks creativity of the mind! They like repetitive crap in their mouth to come out and puke on all the good old shows.

All of their shows are the same. Someone is trying to get famous and trying to hide their identity. Look at Hannah Montana. Just like Jett back in the day, she is a “famous pop singer” and all she does is whine and complain about how it’s hard to be a normal girl and a singer. And she has to hide her identity, when it’s clearly obvious she’s the same singer because they have the same face…Wizards of Whatever also are Wizards trying to hide their magic, same thing as Hannah Montana, trying to “hide something”. And then Sonny With a Chance, trying to be famous (another iCarly really), and Suit Life on Deck is just a retarded idea period. The original was okay, but when Maddy left, I said forget it. And then…it became INFESTED with comedies! The lack of variety is so obvious, it doesn’t matter which show I’m watching, they all look the same.

It’s like they are encouraging kids to grow up to be shallow, whiny teenagers, who instead of working for what they want, complain like they haven’t grown an inch. They are teaching our kids that they can get famous for not trying at all. Money, but no effort. How sick is that? I say that because I’m still perplexed how most of them became actors and actresses. Some of them need to get fired from the studio. And since when was it a good idea to make actors and actresses into singers? I know you want clean music for kids, Anne, but getting even worse singers and performers is traumatizing them just as badly! And now these kids don’t know the difference between good music and bad. They think good means “anybody who is on TV”. That’s not what makes a singer good. Because these television shows are not about finding talent, but finding someone stupid enough to act stupid on television. And now they’re only showing FOUR Disney Channel original movies! Bull crap! simply put. Bull Crap Disney. Fire this woman!

Disney, go kill yourself!

Argh! The Agony!

Last but not least I have to attack this network, though I don’t believe this is any of their fault. I blame the viwership: the mentally damaged children. This network is known as Nickelodeon. Nickelodeon was not only a good network for kids, but for everyone. It was one of the most awesome networks on television. This show had more variety than any kid’s network on the air. They not only had Nick Jr in the morning, which I watched even when I was 10, they had good shows for kids, like Blues Clues, Little Bill, Little Bear, Franklin, and Face, who introduced me to peanut butter and banana btw. They had Gullah Gullah Island, which even kids watched. Then by the afternoon, even greater shows came on like Rugrats, the most popular of course, Hey Arnold, Angry Beavers, Ren and Stimpy, Ka-blam, All That, Kenan and Kel, The Amanda Show,  Invader’s Zim, My Brother and Me, Clarissa Explains It All (before Lizzie Maguire), The Wild Thornberrys, even Ned’s De-Classified was pretty okay later on, and Spongebob, who was more like a surfer dude, than he was a gay clown like he is today. And not all gay people act like clowns, but does. I’d say the decline happened with Unfabulous. And that’s when I realized Nick was trying to imitate Disney and their “teeny-bopper” ways. I couldn’t believe it. Nick at Nite is still good because I like Malcolm in the Middle and Everybody Hates Chris. In fact, THOSE should’ve been on NICK!!!! What the FOOL!

But Nick can’t help it. I mean that’s what the stupid kids want to watch. The only recently good show they had on Nick was Avatar: The Last Airbender. That was pretty good. I watched the whole show, and was upset when it ended.

So yeah, I think television might be some sick way for kids to go outside and play. They got together and said , “Hey let’s make it suck so kids can be more active.” But it didn’t work. Instead, the retarded kids thought it was good…

So some people may ask, why am I ranting on this? Am I a “soccer mom”? I’m older now, I don’t have to worry about cartoons, right? Wrong. I DO care what the kids of today watch. I’m not a “soccer mom”, who just condemns every little thing with too much violence and killing and a little horror or suspense, but at least if you’re going to have it, do it right. These companies know they can take advantage of kids because kids are dumb enough to fall into their scandals. Kids don’t know any better. These corporations believe they can throw out crap and cash in on the kids who don’t think anything about it…rather don’t think at all!

I feel there is nothing wrong with me wanting the kids of today to have quality television, instead of a large quantity of bull crap! If you’re going to buy Demand Cable, you might as well make sure it’s worth it!

Also, my generation of viewers never grew up from cartoons. We loved our networks. We knew it was quality. So we are still among the viewers of these networks. Why do you think they’re trying to raise the bars on Cartoon Network with Adult Swim and stuff? Because we loved this stuff, and because we also watch it, we see what they’re doing to the kids. We see they are making the kids look like idiots, and it’s not right.

You may say, who am I to say it’s crap? Every generation hates the last, right? And that much is true. BUT, there are some things in the generation that I like, like Disney Channel has Pass the Plate. That’s good they are encouraging international union. BUT…any logical person knows that if something is called MTV, music television, you play music….and anyone knows that if you are CARTOON NETWORK, you play ONLY cartoons on the network. Why lead people astray with the title, and then they flip and see a live action show? I would be like “Is my television broken? Am I on the wrong channel?” If you’re going to do that, change the title of the network!

Sighs…………………………..

There’s only so much I can say. There is more, but I’m tired. Hey, me and a couple of 90s kids are getting together to create our own network of good shows, so if anyone wants to join in, let me know in the comments.

I hate Females….

2 Jul

Aside from the fact that I am a woman, I am starting to hate women.

Well, yes, hate is a strong word. So let me just say there are some  things that I strongly dislike about my own gender.

First off, the thing that I know will irritate me is the flock of hypocritical women who will read this post and bombard it with negative responses about “feminism” and how men should appreciate women and blah blah, only to find I’m not a lonely, heart-sick man who is fed up with women because he bitterly resents the women who rejected him or have left him….

No, I seriously have just allowed myself to be honest with myself. I dislike women. I somewhat regret “feminism”. The only reason I hold myself to it is to help rape victims, women who want to own homes, get good respectable jobs, and pay for their own homes and cars without their husband’s name. Other than that…well, I feel it has become a joke.

Women, just like black people, pull the “prejudice” card, and have almost taken this feminist thing to the extreme. To the point that it seems they really are not even thinking about the men. Women have double standards…..and this is most frequent among my ethnicity (just guess…you know it, African American)….but all women seem to take men for granted nowadays. Some of these women are so demanding that it’s sickening.

I recently watched a video called Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. And what I saw….the women were the problem most of the time. They were nagging, complaining, emotional, and so demanding. It was like they expected the man to be perfect. Those women made ME want to pull out my hair.

Another double standard women have is they feel it is alright to be a “Cougar”, as it is glamorized on media with shows like Cougar Club, which “cougar” means an older woman who likes to pursue a younger male. But if an older male pursues a young female who’s aged 20, he’s a “rapist”, like R. Kelly.

In How Stella Got Her Groove Back, it was okay for that older women to love a man who was in his 20’s, but that carries stigma with males.

Another thing is women are so superficial. They have really ruined media. They are the most boring creators. There are not very many diverse subjects among women. I have noticed since women took over most of television with Networks like Lifetime, MTV, and Disney Channel that all of the shows are the same. 1) A Reality show 2) A reality sitcom 3) A Drama 4) Contest reality show 5)Talk Shows…..that’s all women like, and that is all they can come up with. Boring. Uninteresting. And leads to there being hardly any variety on television anymore. And lately, all of the girls who get all of the fame as celebrities are the stuck-up, wannabe pop stars within these female-geared shows. Women usually play the characters with all the money and the stank attitudes. For some reason, the females like those rich girls with stank attitudes.

Like….look at New York. She is funny, true enough, but now we have thousands of reality media personality imitations….because women don’t like variety as much as males do.

As far as women-geared genres, the genres will more than likely be slapstick comedy, drama some more, romance….and that’s it. The only time women like adventure is if some “cute guy” is in it…and even then it is more than likely for the romance of it all….When I turn to even Disney Channel, I see a repeat of slapstick sitcoms with endless hours of teenage girls googling over guys, becoming addicted to shopping, and whining and complaining about their life. There aren’t shows anymore like So Weird, where the main female character never had a boyfriend, could give a rat’s cock about shopping, but loved mystery and the paranormal. Or Shelby Woo who loved to solve mysteries more than anything. But guess who was running Disney Channel back then? A male. Guess who is running it now? A female.

Same with their choice of music. Most women choose their favorite celebrities and singers based on HOW THEY LOOK. Take Justin Bieber for instance. Most girls have confessed, without knowing it, that they only like him for his looks. Why else would this cliche, generic, wannabe hip-hopper be so popular? Teeny Bopper girls think he is cute. They don’t usually say anything about his music, don’t say anything about his songwriting, don’t even mention his career….OH, But he’s cute…which has nothing to do with music. And now the music world is so polluted with the female “frame of mind”,  they have got the world thinking that looks matter in a MUSIC INDUSTRY. That’s why I think they combined the MODELING industry with it now because that’s all women care about. Which leads to bias…because it makes the music industry “political”, and it makes it harder for the “real” talents to actually get their break, especially if they don’t have the “look”. Which is the reason I think we have crappy artists who can’t sing, write music, or play instruments, and if they can, aren’t famous for it because they heavily synthesize their voices and use computer programming for their music….

And with all of their superficiality, it’s no wonder they end up with horrible men. Women are always missing up the good, nice, shy guys for these charming, handsome, idiotic, low-lives who don’t give a crap about the girls. They have sex, and move from girl to girl, while you are thinking he loves you and wants to spend his life together forever with you. Every good guy doesn’t have to look good. In fact, that is the worst thing to look at first. That is a blind way to look at things…..which is why usually women make poor choices in mates. Look at Lizzie Maguire….she used to like Ethan Craft before she realized after bad choices that Gordo was the one…Sadly, for most women, it’s too late to change from your superficial habits…twats….

Males are different. They like not only reality, like current events, but sports, cartoons, sci-fi, adventure, action, music, drama (like TNT), comedy, horror and others without having just romance. Back when Disney Channel was ran by males, there were so many different types of shows, such variety. Now? Just shoot me.

Another thing I hate about women is they always want to cry and act crazy when a man hits them, but when they hit a man, it’s for a “good reason” and they usually feel they shouldn’t have to suffer. The police usually believes the women too, rather than believe a man got hit. Like the Rihanna and Chris Brown issue. Rihanna scratched Chris first, and he defended himself, but got the brunt of it all. And people went by a photo as evidence, which could’ve been photo-shopped on the internet (which I recently tried, it’s very easy). It’s alright to hit a man, but not alright to hit a woman? Bull. Ladies, if you are swinging irons around, hitting someone, cursing someone out, pushing someone, punching them, and jumping their backs….one or the other is going to happen: either he is going to run, hold you down, or slap you. Now if he runs, why do some women have the nerve to follow? Then you are either going to be run over by his car as he’s leaving or slapped or ignored and he will move on. But that kind of abuse is rarely reported to the police, even though some women are dead wrong….And then women want to cry equality in one breath, and go “OOOOHHH HE HIT ME!” In another breath. How do you think women won the vote in suffrage? Alice Paul, the leader along the Turn of the Twentieth Century, spurred controversy. When the “bull cops” came, she LET them beat her. She smiled and said, “Come on, hit me like you would a man.” Why? Because she truly believed in equality. And when they were going to go easy on her and not send her to jail, she said “No, send me to jail like you do all the other men.” Some people thought she was crazy. But she truly believed in equality. These stupid hypocritical women are “afraid” of equality.

And why do women demand all of this attention when they want it, but barely give the man any when he wants it? Is it a pride thing? A man is supposed to remember to give you flowers every Valentines Day, Christmas, Birthdays, and every Friday, but you have never done anything for him? I suggest to women that before they make demands on others, they should think about what they do to contribute to the relationship. Start with the woman in the mirror.

The media has convinced women that all men are dogs, are idiots, only think about sports and themselves…but it’s not true all the time.

Another thing I hate is that when women are fans of something, instead of coming up with logical, reasonable, explanation why they like/dislike something someone, they go in an emotional rampage. Like Justin Bieber fans. Instead of even having reasons for liking him, they simply yell “He’s cute, and I love him, and he loves me!” While that is admirable, that is ridiculously insignificant.

Or maybe they say, “He’s a nice, cute kid, and you are just jealous because he is famous.” Well, tell me, genius, what does that have to do with music or his professional career? Why become a professional, and not get criticized on your work so you can improve?

That’s why “kids” shouldn’t be in the music industry…..because of the stupidity of people who support them.

Then the biggest reason why I hate females is because of soccor moms. They have ruined media, too. They only want the media to be one way: “conservative”. They got rid of shows like So Weird and movies like Don’t Look Under the bed on Disney Channel through a petition. Ironically, those were the only shows with female heroines, but “moms” said it was “not appropriate”…..And yet shows like Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, and ICarly get no complaints whatsoever….though they are material-driven females, who obsess over boys, and promote spoiled and whiny kids who try to get their way all the time…..but no. Women, for some reason, don’t want to watch “strong” females do something like the “guys”……

At least movies have an improvement, though it seems women are just a bunch of sex icons, and serve no other purpose than to take off all of their clothes and screw the main character (male)…..Hey, at least the majority of them today have finally wielded a gun and sword….

Teens and Pop Music

30 Jun

What has happened to pop music and where does this come from?

Well, I had time to think about this over the course of a few days. And here and there, music conversations would come up. Now, I am just finally over the age of the “teenagers” and my generation is growing up from that stage (20).  And as I grow up, I’m still a bit in tuned with what is popular today.

I come from Generation Next. I realized our generation was the one’s who ruined music forever. Though we did not produce it, or make it, or sing it when bad music first began, we were the ones who supported it and asked for more. How did I finally come to this conclusion?

Well, after constantly reviewing rants on youtube, I’ve been examining the several generations. The one before us was a part of a generation known as “Libras”. They were the generation that had “relationship problems” and they are the generation that hate the world and hate prejudice, racism, inequality, and their rants are mostly on that—though they occasionally rant on music.

Generation Next mostly rants about the bad television nowadays, which we supported good movies and television for children. However, when it comes to music…it ends.

Our generation was born mid-way in 1983, but mostly 1984 to midway 1995, mostly 1994. That is the end of our generation. We are called “Scorpio” generation. We have issues related to sex, violence, and the occult. Also we like sci-fi….Our generation, was the first generation to receive music specifically designed for teens.

Though there had been many teen/kid acts in the ’70s like the Jackson 5, The Osmonds, and other famous acts…most of them were group acts. And when there are group acts…well, they tend to range from many different ages, so the music becomes more universal, and more “family oriented”. Especially because they were all different ages. They had to had songs that related to kids, teens, and adults.

Even with Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys, it had to be more universal. The youngest in their groups were around 18. But there were plenty of ages, making them not a “teen/kid” act completely. The songs also had to relate to all people within the group.

But then the “teeny bopper” solo act came out. Britney Spears. She was the first teen solo act to ever make it that big…and why? Well, because our generation was “tweens” and for some reason, instead of playing with dolls at age 10, we bought CDs…..Even channels like Disney Channel and Nickelodeon promoted pop sensations and pop music.

Now look at what we destroyed. We destroyed music. We let the less experienced, less intelligent, “tweens” run the music industry, who is more concerned about how a person looks rather than actual talent. Sad isn’t it?

This is the result:

Do Gay Men Have it Better than Straight Men?

26 Jun

Well, I’m not  an expert on this subject, but I have my own ideas. There are several reasons why I think some men have made this claim.

Though this video is about black men, it’s not just them who have made this claim.

Some men have said this : “They think gay men get better jobs  because their bosses see them as feminine and want to degrade them. They realize they are not tough. They don’t see them as a threat. They also get more women because they act like women.”

I strongly disagree with all claims.

Today’s society still tries to keep the chains on males and what classifies masculinity and what makes a male straight or what makes a man a man. Being masculine includes doing anything but liking clothes, planting flowers, cooking, cleaning, reading books like Gossip Girl, etc. While to most men that might be strange, some men might secretly enjoy it, but they are too afraid to say so because they are afraid to appear “gay” or “weak”.

Gay men on the other hand are more confident in themselves and what they like, which makes them less afraid to express their opinions and less afraid to be themselves. This, in turn, is a very attractive trait to women, even in a platonic sense.  Gay men are not afraid of what people think about them. They are very courageous, which is actually a masculine trait that some straight men haven’t even cultivated. They are not as easily influenced by peers so it seems they have stronger minds.

They tend to come off charming and open-minded. Yes, some of them understand women better, but there are some gay men who still like sports and video games just like all the other men. Some gay men don’t understand women, but women gravitate toward them because they are bold and are not afraid to express their sexuality or beliefs. It’s very attractive. Women want those kinds of people around them.

It’s these same qualities that get them good jobs. It’s not that employers don’t see gay men as a threat, as I’ve said some come off very masculine and some employers do have prejudices. But Gay men tend to be more pleasant, more open to jobs, more opened to different races and ethnicity groups (as most have been “removed” from their culture and ethnicity), and most gay men seem to do well with authority without abusing it.

Gay men’s advancement seems to really affect men within the black community mostly.

Black men are too busy trying to prove their masculinity by shooting one another, while gay black men are getting an education and trying to better themselves. They are working, they are traveling, and they are open to making new friends. They keep their ideas of truth broad, instead of following others blindly. They make good leaders and role models. A lot of them support many organizations that improve society. And they help one another get jobs. This has been my experience working with gay men.

Not to say other men aren’t like this, but as long as the chains hold men back, they will continue to hold themselves back. I believe men shouldn’t have to feel restrained by ideas that keep men from reaching beyond their potential. Not to say you have to change, but if you feel restrained by the chains society has put on you, let them go. You will feel freer, much more confident, and happier.

I feel that’s a lesson all people have to live by.
