A Walk Down Memory Lane: Bratz Music

28 Apr

I seriously LOVE Bratz music! #bratz

Their music is seriously GOOD. It sounds professional. Even if people don’t necessarily like the dolls, many people enjoy their music. Their album, Bratz Rock Angelz, even made it on ¬†Billboard 100’s list!

Their music is better than most songs geared towards children. Even teens and adults can enjoy their music. Monster High is cool as a doll line, but their music is a little cheesy. No offense. ūüėõ

So, I’m going to post all of the Bratz songs I’ve collected on this article! Have a listen!

Bratz Yasmin

Yasmin’s¬†nickname is “Pretty¬†Princess” because she’s pretty and she royally rules. She’s also called Pretty Princess¬†because¬†she¬†takes the coolest common clothes and turns them into royal perfection.¬†Yasmin’s¬†fashion passion focuses on bohemian and retro fashions,¬†in autumn¬†or¬†earth tone colors,¬†and with exotic textures and patterns. However, occasionally, Yasmin likes to wear vibrant colors, too. Her favorite color is Honey Yellow. She’s¬†all about blending different styles into one graceful look. Her style has a feminine touch to it. She is known for her gorgeous and unique natural beauty: her sandy-red¬†brunette¬†hair,¬†natural tan, brown eyes,¬†and the beauty mark under her left eye.¬†She is considered to be of Hispanic, Hawaiian, and Iranian background.

Sometimes, Yasmin is so quiet, it’s hard to read her. She has a hard time standing up for herself, standing in front of crowds alone, and she can be sneaky. She is very earthy.

Yasmin loves music, and seems especially interested in being a singer. She also enjoys writing. She has written music but also enjoys journalistic writing as well. Because she’s so quiet, she is observant which helps her see things others miss. This observant trait assists her as a writer.

Her signature stage move is having a wardrobe and hair change mid-performance.

Bratz Cloe

Cloe’s¬†nickname is “Angel” because¬†that’s what she is!¬†Her friends gave her that nickname for many reasons. For starters, no matter what she wears, she always looks divine. Cloe’s fashion passion focuses on anything dramatic and trend-setting, which¬†includes animal prints,¬†shimmering or sparkly fabrics, and pastel colors like pink and blue. Despite her flair for the drama, Cloe has a sporty touch.

She is¬†known for her blonde hair, blue eyes, and sometimes her freckles. She is the only one in the group who wears glasses. She is of Icelandic heritage.

2014-2015 Fashion Idea #3: ANDROGYNOUS

15 Feb

I love edgy fashion. For the last couple of months, I have been totally obsessed with the androgynous and metro-sexual styles. This is due, in part, to the fact that I’ve been seeing this style show up more often lately as people begin to embrace their inner “masculine” and “feminine” sides. The whole mystery of it intrigues me, and it’s fun to trick the mind in that way!

To add, there is a huge wave of support from the LGBT community. That community encourages people to embrace who they are, and its influence trickles into the entertainment  industry.

But you don’t need to be a part of that community to appreciate the look.

Many are afraid to rock the look because they are afraid of looking too much like the “opposite gender”. But there are plenty of ways to rock the androgynous look and still look sexy to the opposite sex.

Here a few examples of celebrities, dolls, and book characters who have rocked the look and pulled it off (Read the descriptions below the pictures to learn more about them!) :

Androgynous Women

Marlene Dietrich, one of the pioneers of the androgynous looks. Worn in the 1930s movie Morocco.

Some toys have gotten into the trend. Particularly the American Girl franchise. Felicity Merriman was one of few dolls that came with her own pair of breeches, trousers only worn by men in her time. She tops it off with a riding hat. Unfortunately, this retired. But it can give you some ideas...

Some toys have gotten into the trend. Particularly the American Girl franchise. Felicity Merriman was one of few dolls that came with her own pair of breeches, trousers only worn by men in her time. She tops it off with a riding hat. Unfortunately, this retired. But it can give you some ideas…According to the book Meet Felicity, she “borrowed” a pair of breeches from her father’s apprentice, Ben, so she could sneak off to visit her horse, Penny. It was also so she could run and move faster. This outfit wasn’t marketed for the main line, but could be an accessory for girls and their dolls. This doll has a back story that begins on the brink of the Revolutionary War.

American Girl also marketed Kit Kittredge in androgynous fashion. She was the only doll to have androgynous fashion marketed in her main line. This pair of overalls was given to her by her brother because she outgrew her clothes, according to the accompanying book Kit Saves the Day.

American Girl also marketed Kit Kittredge in androgynous fashion. She grew up in the 1930s during the Great Depression (obviously when the veterans of androgynous fashion began their style). She was the only doll to have androgynous fashion marketed in her main line. This pair of overalls was given to her by her brother. She wears them to make it easier to work in her garden, and possibly to supplement for the lack of clothing items, due to the fact that she outgrew her old dresses, and since she can’t afford new dresses, according to the accompanying book Kit Saves the Day. In the story, it also helps her disguise as a boy! Kit has also been marketed with a baseball outfit.

Of course, you know the ever popular Bratz dolls have tried any edgy fashion you can think of, and the tomboy look is no exception.

My Scene Barbie doll added some androgynous additions to her fashions. She was marketed as liking edgy fashions. Though the dress adds just the right feminine touches, the tie makes it more masculine. We also can't forget Delancey, the tomboy doll!

Sailor Uranus was one of the first androgynous cartoon characters to show up on television. With her beautiful hair, and snappy suits and school uniform, she is definitely one of the most attractive characters on the show.

B. Scott (although considering himself transgender) gets a lot of attention from women who just wish he could give women a chance! Though guys may not necessarily admire him, you can learn. Perhaps try wearing your hair long and wavy?

So maybe you can try these looks! Keep an open mind, step outside of your comfort zone in fashion, explore your options. There are many ways to appeal to the opposite sex. Sometimes it’s okay to borrow some styles from the opposite gender. At one time, all men wore stockings, bows in their hair, heels, and even long robes! Pink was a boy color, but now girls rock it as their own!

Don’t be afraid to take a chance! We live in an age where trying new things is a part of modern society.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Bratz as Pop Stars & Rock Stars: Walk Down Memory Lane

23 Jul

I just thought I would dedicate this next article to the Bratz fashion trends that consist of being a musical artist. Bratz, since their first single release in Japan, have had several successful singles and albums released, plus scorching wardrobes to go with them. So lets take a walk down memory lane, shall we?

From the Show Me What You Got Music Video:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Bratz have had other lines that show off their music style! Take a Peek!

Bratz Space Angelz Live in Concert-One of the best! From left to right: Fianna, Dana, Jade, Cloe, Sasha, and Yasmin!

Bratz Rock Angelz-One of the best! From left to right: Roxxi, Sasha, Yasmin, Jade, and Cloe. I hate that the movie switched Cloe and Jade around! Just trying to give Cloe the most popular outfit. Sucks!

Bratz Star Singerz-Not one of the Bratz best imo. From left to right: Sasha, Yasmin, Cloe, and Jade. They all look alike aside from some minor details. And it's really girlish rather than the spunky spicey style the Bratz normally rock.

Bratz the Movie Talent Show-It came with a doll collection too, but only with Cloe and Yasmin, which sucks.

Bratz the Movie MTV Performance-Left to Right: Cloe, Yasmin, Sasha, Jade. If only this were an actual line (and not with just Cloe and Yasmin in it!)

Bratz Girlz Really Rock from left to right: Yasmin, Cloe, Jade, Sasha

Bratz Neon Pop Divaz. They fell right back into cloning each other. From top to bottom: Cloe, Jade, Sasha, Yasmin.

Bratz On the Mic

Bratz Rock Left to Right: Yas, Jade, Sasha, Cloe

Bratz Style Starz-Probably the best one since Rock Angelz! From Left to Right: Cloe, Jade, Yasmin, and Sasha. Really Shocktastic!

So That’s all folks! Just giving a little memorial to the Bratz styles of old that represented music trends! Enjoy! I will be doing more Bratz “memorials”. No? Don’t want any? Let me know if you like this one!

The Bratz ARE Back! Check out their best line since 2005: Bratz Style Starz!

19 Jul

In the Totally Tattooed article, I mentioned that Bratz seemed to be back with the edgy look that they were so notorious for having. Of course, you know by now that the Bratz are always supposed to be cutting edge and and should be a doll line that breaks fashion rules. But Totally Tattooed didn’t confirm that the individuality, the creativity, and the diversity was back.

Well, with this new line, it just proves that the Bratz power is still lurking somewhere in the shadows! Here’s a peek at the newest line:

Bratz Style Starz

Not only is this line edgy (pushing that limited edge, look at those spiked stiletoos!), but this line is their most creative line since their re-launch! 2010 just seemed like it left off from the 2007 year, which was a really bad year for Bratz. 2012 is more promising. Inspired from the pop divas of the the “Gaga” Pop Era, we see the Bratz glamorize-into-fashion famous music idols we all know! Can you tell? I’m getting the Nicki Minaj vibe from that curly wig Yasmin is sporting. Yas’s song has been noted as sounding like “Super Bass”.

Nicki Minaj and her Curly wig! Yas is inspired,obviously!

Ok, it’s been noted that Jade has been inspired by Jessie J! Jade’s song seems to be inspired from Nobody’s Perfect.

Jade is wearing a spiked jacket similar to what Jessie J is sporting.

Cloe seems to have a Gaga look about her! Cloe’s song seems to be inspired by Edge of Glory.

Lady Gaga in a luscious but bold red outfit! Cloe seems to be inspired!

And Sasha is obviously inspired from Katy Perry! Sasha’s song seems to be inspired by Last Friday Night (TGIF). And even the vintage nerd glasses seem to come from the outfit in the music video.

Katy Perry’s Candy dress-Sasha is definitely inspired from the lollipop theme!

Some may say, “How is this creative? It’s just ripping off a bunch of poor musical artists!” But it is cleverly done. Not only will these dolls connect the consumer with pop music and celebrity trends, but these dolls take a bold and original approach to their inspiration! The designs,the wigs, and the individual inspirations bring back the Bratz distinction. And look! All of the shoes are different from one another! Finally! The Bratz have come out with “pop star” lines before but never have they ever looked this outrageous! For some reason, I had a feeling one day they would rock the Gaga thing…

My favorite part about this line was the element of surprise and how unexpected everything was! Everyone thought Jade was Cloe, and Cloe was Meygen! It wasn’t until later we found out the truth: Everyone is mixed up with different trends and hair! No one looks as you would expect them too! It totally breaks the racial and ethnic barriers, which I think is so fun and interesting. I’m also excited that they aren’t poseable in the legs. I think that’s what made the Bratz lose their chunky shoes, and because it took away that splash,the detail went along with it. Let’s face it. Not every doll is meant to be pose-able. The posing bodies just seemed like an imitation of Liv and Monster High anyway. It’s time for Bratz to cut the imitations and get back to what they do best. Let’s just hope the quality comes back. I want some good hair, and I also want more detail in the lines. I do like the little detailed candies in Sasha’s dress and the spikes on Jade’s jacket.The downside that I do see to the line are some of the changes from the prototypes. The major thing I really don’t like is Cloe’s legs. It is painted black. This is going to make it hard for people to mix and match the fashions if they want to. It just shows a lack of quality.Why not real leggings or stockings? Barbie was normally the doll with the painted on clothes, not Bratz. This is my biggest pet peeve about this line. The second thing that gets me is Sasha’s leggings. Where did they go? Well, I guess I can let that one go. I’m tired of the legging thing. But they were cute and made the doll pop out even more. I also am not sure I like Yasmin’s new leggings. The original leggings were more interesting, and had more detail. The new leggings are okay, though…

Check these dolls soon to come out in stores!

If only the dolls looked like this! This was a prototype! Why would you change them MGA! They always take away the quality when they do that!

Youtube is known for having videos that go “viral”. What? You mean like a virus? Yea, like a virus. It means the videos that spread like a sickness to so many homes it becomes a part of popular culture. Remember? “Climbing in yo windows, snatching yo people up”? Or maybe “Leave Britney Alone!”? Or maybe Two Girls and One Cup? Let’s not reminiscence. As vulgar as those videos may sound, or as retarded, or embarrassing, they entertain us and draw people to them. Remember Rebecca Black’s “Friday”? That song was awful, and yet it has more viewers than good songs. These videos are a hit.

There is one video that’s my personal favorite.

Finally, we’re reaching an age of music where people’s voices can be heard instead of “disguised and synchronized” by “autotunes”. The voice is great, the lyrics, while not deep, make sense. The song is catchy but tasteful.

It looks like the Rockabilly style is back…

The next one is a series created for two of the most awkward things: being a girl and being black.

Enjoy.

2011-2012 Fashion Idea #2: Cyber Punk

1 Aug

This fashion idea, Cyberpunk, I discovered from researching Steampunk. It takes a more modern technological approach to punk. Unlike Steampunk, which borrows from the original technological age old, this one borrows from today’s technological age, and the way we see our future. We see ourselves similarly to how the Victorians saw themselves: as people on the turn of the Century, ready to advance. Quite fitting, as the new generation of teenagers are entering Aquarius in Neptune, which Aquarius rules the future and unusual fashion. Neptune rules escape and visual images. It also rules illusion. It also rules drugs or anything that helps us escape reality and how we want others to see our reality. Technology is their escape, and they want the world to visualize them as a technological generation. It’s why all of the music videos are seen at “clubs.” Aquarius rules the club. Nothing could’ve said it better than this caption:

Aquarius in Neptune

That’s why we see all of these movies that are competing to visualize the best technology. This generation escapes through it. Cyberpunk is a reflection of this generation and it’s standards. Also, while Steampunk encourages a Utopian dream, Cyberpunk is a bit Dystopian in it’s approach. Guess what? Aquarius rules the Utopian dream.

Cyberpunk

Archetypes from Movies, Video Games, and Shows: Ghost in the Shell, Tron: Legacy, The Matrix, Serial Experiments Lain, Paranoia Agent’s Soundtrack, Reboot, Dead Or Alive: Final, Sigma, Kingdom Hearts II’s The World That Never Was, Metropolis, NeoTokyo, Batman Beyond, Magnetic Rose, Ergo Proxy, Parasite Dolls, Spy Kids

I really love Cyberpunk Fashion. I wish I was a part of the generation when it comes to style. My generation was Neptune in Capricorn. I know, pretty boring, right? Well, at least we ruled the business suit.

Cyber Punk is slick, and really edgy. It gives you an Electronica feel to it. Think of being in a club, dimmed lights, and glow in the dark items everywhere and you’ve got Cyber punk. Or think of moving in leather battle gear, dark area, and neon lights charge up on your car. I get that same kind of strange mysterious feeling when I see it. It’s not the normal haunted house feeling, it’s like the extreme haunted smart house feeling. It’s hard to describe. But it rocks. Think of it this way: instead of wearing a lace shirt, wear a ripped black netted shirt. Instead of wearing aviator goggles, meant to bring out the fashion of driving an old-fashioned airplane, the goggles are made for someone meant to drive a turbo-speed jet plane, made for the future aviators. Wild neon hairdos, scene hair can add itself to the style, extreme colors either for the whole head or streaks. Under-bust corsets, stretchable rather than Victorian, and rather than lace-up, they appear to strap and zip up most of the time.

Here’s some ideas

Cyber punk is actually good for the summer to me! It has a red-hot feel to it. It’s perfect for going to a club, night-on-the-town, or even a concert. Hey, it’s even good for a Halloween costume. You can wow people when out with friends. It’s a fun and versatile style. I think it’s becoming quite common in almost any music video you see. You can use the style to decorate your house, or maybe use it as a party theme. make your house look like a club! Whatever you choose to do, it’s definitely, to me one of the hottest fashion scenes of this year and next year.

2011-2012 Fashion Idea #1: Steampunk’s Clockwork Couture

1 Aug

I’ve been observing some different styles over the internet lately, and I’ve noticed that I’m feeling the rust and dusty theme lately. I know, it sounds kind of old, but I can’t help but be drawn to styles that are inspired from the past. The first style I’m particularly interested in is Steampunk. Think of visual images of Victorian technology built into a style. It’s a fashion scene that is just starting to be recognized.

Steampunk

Archetypes from movies: Steamboy, Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, Canon Fodder, Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland, Howl’s Moving Castle, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Sherlock Holmes, Atlantis The Lost Empire, Treasure Planet, even Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has some elements, particularly on Willy Wonka himself. If you want you can even add in Sweeny Todd if it suits your fancy.

Steampunk fashion seems to combine Victorian Era look with a gothic and punk flourish. Really, it’s a clutter of rusty fashion. Think of a steam train, or boiler room, or rusted metal, and put it into fashion, and you’ve got steampunk. It is said to combine science fiction with fantasy. The style gives off that element. It’s quite a cutting edge fashion and completely taking a fashion risk. But for some reason I love it. Think of white blouses, waistcoats, trench coats, corsets, military-inspired clothing, aviator goggles, top hats, canes, gun belts, swords, and many other Victorian items, and combine them together. I am particularly fond of the gun belts, top hats, aviator goggles, and long coats. It’s a fascinating theme indeed. I fell in love with this style a while back on an American Girl website. That was the first time I heard of it. It’s just now becoming a big fashion style.

If anyone is interested in Steampunk fashion, it’s best to shop at Clockwork Couture for a start.

This fashion is recommended if you can’t find that perfect costume for Halloween. Or if you just want a unique look for this fall, give it a try. Recommend it to friends who are willing to take a dare in the fashion world. Check out movies to get some ideas on the look. Wear it to a party. Use it as a party theme. You can even decorate your home in the style. It’s up to you how you want to use it, but I think it’s cool it can be used in such a broad way. There are even some musical artists that also encourage the look, like Docter Steel. Give it a Try! I even recommended this idea to the Bratz. That doll line needs some edge again.

Another style Steampunk is said to be related to, but it’s not really the same, is CyberPunk, which I might do next. Cyber Punk reminds me of the “scene” look everybody’s doing now.

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.

Homosexuality-What does it mean? How should we Feel About it?

23 Jun

The whole idea of homosexuality is very political, and I hate political debates. But I do have opinions, so…

1)What does being homosexual mean to people today?

Well, in the past, it was something considered abnormal, uncommon, and unusual. People didn’t openly express it….then again, people didn’t openly express sexuality with one another period, especially if they were Christians.

Now, it’s still a little unusual to some people. But it’s not quite uncommon or abnormal. One thing we can say about the youngest generation (ages now 16-27) is that they don’t care about your choice of sexuality, and there are many within that age range who wouldn’t mind even having the experience. This generation is born from Late August 1983 to about Early August 1995, as it has been stated on many astro and even wikipedia sites, that this generation doesn’t mind any form of sexuality, as long as it is sex. It could be because with that generation, sex is beautiful, and should be spread to all….who knows. Or maybe what has been openly exposed to them on the television at young ages….for whatever reason, that generation finds sex an interesting topic at all times, they find unusual sex not only fascinating, but different, rebellious, and are often curious.

Of course, there are still plenty of people who detest the ACT of homosexuality. There are still plenty of people who wouldn’t choose it as a path for themselves. And there are still a small fraction of people who believe it is a fad, like the Hippie days…

But regardless of people’s personal feelings towards it, some parts of the world have come to accept it…well mostly the US. Most employees are expected to ignore personal preferences regarding sexuality,unlike in the past, and hire more on the basis of skill and talents. People are more willing to accept it nowadays, now more than ever before. It is now another act of prejudice if they are treated differently. Also, homosexuals are not ashamed anymore. Just as regular people nowadays have no shame in expressing their sexual preferences, gays don’t mind either. It is not uncommon to see many homosexual people walking down the street who have confessed their sexual ideas.

2) If it is supposed to be acceptable, why is there still controversy? why are people so prejudiced of them?

Well, while many people just accept that there will be homosexuals, it’s more on the lines of just people ignore them. In the past, some of them were lynched and even burned by the KKK….but we won’t get into that.

However, there are still laws stopping gays from getting married. And many religions turn them away. The thing is, there are still people who have their objections. I think both sides should consider the arguments in order to fight them. Both sexualities tend to be a little hostile if you don’t agree with them, so think about it a little.

My argument for the Homosexuals in the USA:

1) Marriage should be a right for anyone who is in love. Why discriminate? Why should a country who says that they want everyone to have liberal rights, freedom of religion, and equality as long as it doesn’t harm anyone not allow homosexuals those same rights? They aren’t physically harming anyone. They are doing what they desire. People in this nation have done more harm to themselves and their environment than homosexuals could possibly do to the nation. Instead of holding back gays, who only want to get married, they should think about how the US allows people to drink all kinds of alcohol or allows greedy business owners to handle oil and cause natural oil disasters like the Oil Crises. That does more harm than two people of the same sex getting married, and yet the same people who want to throw the Bible in a gay person’s face don’t condemn greed in the US. Neither do they condemn getting drunk on New Years Eve. The same people who claim Holy during the time to ridicule a homosexual person are the worst at following the principles of the Bible. While being gay is not my preference, I see no reason not to allow them the rights to do what they want. If other more criminal things can be allowed to allow people to live comfortable lives, then why not let them live comfortable lives? Of course, marriage isn’t totally a big thing anymore. But if people want to do it, then they shouldn’t be denied their rights. Heterosexuals argue that if we are going to allow same sex marriage, we might as well allow an animal to marry a human, or a 12 year old to marry a 20 year old. Well, in my personal opinion, if the people feel that the other loves them, whether it be an animal, a younger person, or the opposite sex,¬† I don’t see anything wrong with it. If the two people said they loved each other, why not? I feel if we question those, why allow alcohol consumption? And cigarette use? The driving of polluted cars in our atmosphere? And while, yes, all of those are even more damaging, I don’t see anyone planning to give those up so soon. So if they want people to live happily, give them their rights.

2) While being gay doesn’t seem to harm anyone, in one way it does. In long term thinking, it puts a halt on natural reproduction and the continuation of human kind, which in turn could mean the end of the human race. We actually need someone to produce children. Though homosexuals are still a minority, ideas spread. If you think they don’t, you’re a fool. Look how many people around the world have fallen in love with Justin Beiber? Look how many people have gotten into the World Cup? Ideas spread and can influence others. If the idea of homosexuality spreads, and more and more people get involved with it, less and less people will be producing babies. Population will decline. Now if you are a person who doesn’t plan for the future, or a person who doesn’t care what happens to the human race because we’re all going to die anyway….then hey, go for whatever you know and care about. If you are a person who wants to keep the human race alive as long as possible…and you are pretty conservative when it comes to drinking, smoking, or anything else…I don’t blame you. I want to live healthy as long as possible too. I believe that we need natural reproduction if we want to keep the human race alive.

This is why I personally believe marriage and sex are not only tools for pleasure, but a responsibility. They’re our way of giving back to the earth. I believe even if humans truly don’t want to, we really have to have heterosexual intercourse if we want to keep the human race alive.

However, this same problem that homosexuals have apply also to people who choose not to or cannot have children, like me for instance, or choose not to have sex at all. It also contributes to population decline. And if you are a conservative person, you disagree with my ideas about that. But me personally, I have my own religion and my views on the future of the human race, and I base my ideas on that. To add, hey, everyone dies, so some people want to live while they are alive.

Aside from that, the one disturbing thought that I really don’t agree with some homosexual people is the claim that science can produce babies for us, and with vaccinations babies live longer and so we are overpopulated, and so can pursue what we desire much more. But that makes me uneasy. Do we really want to trust humans with that completely? Do we want another oil spill like crisis? At least with natural reproduction we are certain we are in control of the wheel and certain we can produce something. It is natural for some people, others can’t have children….but unfortunately it is the most efficient way to have them. It’s the way every species on the earth has kids: natural reproduction.

Others say we can adopt kids, but someone needs to produce kids to adopt….and while I am a fan of sperm donors, I know science has a tendency to “malfunction.”

As to the reason I think same sex marriage doesn’t exist in the USA….is because I still think the government claims America to be a Catholic/Protestant Christian nation. And, well, there is a passage in the Bible in Genesis 19:4,5 where men wanted to have intercourse with other men in Sodom and Gomorrah and God said the whole city except for Lot and his daughters were gross sinners and bad in Genesis 13:13, and God destroyed that city…..Leviticus 18:22 says specifically, “you must not lie down with a man the same as you do a woman…” So anyone who is Christian would naturally object to it because they believe in the Bible. Of course, you can believe in any religion or book you want to believe. You can choose not to have a religion. No one can tell you what is truth. Most people choose their religion according to what they feel comfortable with. And it is your choice whether you even want a religion or to accept one basic principle of truth. No one can condemn anyone and tell them their fate. They can only state the belief of their religion. Heck, if anyone wants to they can interpret the Bible in any way they want to. It’s not up for me to decide. However, I feel it’s very stupid to claim a Christian nation in one breath and claim “freedom of religion” in another….not everyone is a Christian and there are so many Christian beliefs, but that’s according to a Catholic Bible.

The one thing about human existence is…we never do what we need to do. We never consider the logical part of it. It’s not that I encourage people to mate with people they don’t love, but we have to think of the logic part, and why it exists at all. Why does sexuality exist? People have to consider why homosexuality ISN’T accepted as well as why it should be….both sides…and come to a balanced meeting point. You can’t TOTALLY hate straight people because we all came from heterosexuals, and hey homosexuals aren’t doing anything less than anybody else who goes after their hearts desire….but both sides should consider the alternative

3) What is the difference between the color of one’s skin and sexuality? Aren’t we born with both?

The difference is we are born with skin colors, though we have no concept of the distinction of our color of skin. We are NOT born with sexual urges. They are gained. We are not even born with love. As much as idealists want to believe love is unconditional, it is taught and very conditional. We gain those feelings and thoughts and ideas from what we have been taught. No one is born with the desire to have sex at all in fact. Babies have no concept in their brains. They are newborns, they don’t understand those yet. They are our natural human instinctive bodies.

So why does love hurt so much? Because we are conditioned that it is a necessity. If you were never shown it, you would have a different concept of it. It’s just like becoming addicted to alcohol. When it comes to drinking it, we just drink it, we’ve been conditioned it’s normal. If you are addicted to the drink, you get really irritated if you can’t get it. Similarly, love is the same, except it’s much more common and even more pleasurable and less harmful.

The only thing that is physically sexual about us, that is naturally sexual about us are not our desire to have sex, but the natural vagina and the penis. It’s there. Don’t ask me why it is, I have my own beliefs why. But I have a menstrual cycle for a reason and go through pain every month for a reason. As black and white as it sounds, the world is. It’s not as colorful as people’s minds want it to be. Humans, believe it or not, are a species. Our human make-up is what we are born with. It is something we can’t mentally control….

However, not to say being homosexual is something we can totally control. Some people grew up that way, some people just gained the urges. But it’s more compared to someone who is obviously black but was born and grew up in America, more than the actual race as some people compare the discrimination of gays to…..it’s more like they just can’t help it they grew up in America, though naturally their ancestors came from Africa. And no matter where they move, a piece of America will be with them, even if they go back to the home of their ancestors.

Same with homosexuals. They have the urges, they’ve always had it ever sense they learned it. They can’t help it. That’s their culture. Even if their ancestors were originally heterosexual, they just can’t be.

But it’s not like being prejudice of one’s skin tone. That’s like being prejudice because someone is shorter, or uglier, or their hair is different. Those are things we have no mental or physical control over, not even our parents. Parents actually can play a large part in homosexual or heterosexual just like whether their children were born in America or not, especially if they let their children become exposed to such things. But the child itself has no control. Now as far as skin color, height, hair color…no one has control, not even parents….and scientists who claim to have control often lose it too…even with skin bleach, hair dye, and height pills and surgery…science loses control…and damage takes it’s place.

Don’t get me wrong, gay is very normal, but it really isn’t natural. It goes against our natural bodies.

4) What’s the difference between the act of being gay and homosexual encounters?

First off, every guy who likes things that normally girls would like is not gay. Just because a guy likes skirts, heels, lipstick, and dolls does not make him gay. That is sexist to think so. That’s like saying all girls who like sports, jeans, t-shirts, and video games are gay….please! Lots of women do! So? why discriminate with men? Men have their own tastes too. But of course if you are a gay man who likes feminine things, that’s okay too…but all men who like the normally feminine activities aren’t gay.. It doesn’t mean they have sexual attraction to males. Liking pretty things doesn’t mean you have an attraction to the opposite sex…

Second, all people with gay urges don’t choose to act on them. Some gay people choose to have sex with the opposite sex though they have homosexual urges… So though they naturally find the same sex attractive, they choose to have sex with the opposite for their own reasons. People are entitled to do that.

Third, just because you think someone is attractive that is of your same sex does not mean you are gay. It’s natural to think someone else is pretty or handsome, but it doesn’t mean you always want to sleep with someone you think is attractive. It’s natural to love your friends, but it doesn’t mean you love them always in “that way”. Love is used very loosely nowadays….geez…

Lastly, some people choose to act on their urges, or to turn gay because they hate the other sex, or become gay because they had an experience, or for whatever reason. That is the ACT of homosexuality. That means you have chosen the same sex as your sexual partner.

5) Should homosexuals care what anyone thinks? Isn’t love the only thing that matters?

I feel that is up to the person. I personally think because we live on this planet and have to live with each other, we should care to some extent what others think and feel, especially if we want them to care about how we think and feel.

Some can say love is the only thing that matters. And I feel that anyone can be with who they want according to their beliefs. But sometimes, you often should ask yourself, ‘Why am i doing this?’ We can’t always do what we want, sometimes we have to do what we need to do in order to survive.

So the solution? Become a bi-sexual.
