Ke$ha gets cray-cray

There’s a time in an artist second album when they must release their third single.The lovable and glittery miscreant Ke$ha has reached that point in her life with her newest single, “Crazy Kids”.

When I first heard this song on her extremely well done album “Warrior”, It was my favorite song on the album. It’s more mellow compared to the rest of the singles that Ke$ha has released in the past and I like the softer side of K-E-Dollar Sign-Ah. Just by the way the songs starts off, it just sounds like something the you can chill to and it’s hook is catchy (but what Ke$ha isn’t catchy?). Then it just goes to the Ke$ha that we know and love.

Now the single version is way different from the version that is on the album. The single has the one and only will.i.am on it and he “spits some rhymes on it”. This basically ruins the song. Even though he’s on there for like a hot second, it is enough to basically ruin the track. His lines absolutely have nothing to do with the song and it would have been, is, better without it. Granted, Will help Ke$ha write the song and he should have left it at that. Will actually brought something to Britney’s “Big Fat Bass” but this was just “oh, there is will.i.am

Rating: 2 big fat basses out of 5 (the album version was better, actually 5 out of 5)

Will they be there for you?

banner popNews broke yesterday that there will be a revival/reunion season of the series that you clapped along with every week and made you want to visit central perk every time you visited NYC. This made all the world go CooCoo for Coco Puffs and everyone was like “OMG! EYES ARE BLEEDING BECAUSE I’M SO EXCITED FOR THE FACT THAT THIS IS HAPPENING!”

Well, your eyes were bleeding for nothing but a bunch of lies. That’s right, E! News reported that this is just a vicious rumor. The show’s creator Marty Kauffman (no relation) said:

“I’m going to clear this up—it’s not happening! Friends was about that time in your life when your friends are your family and once you have a family, there’s no need anymore.”

So according to Marty, once you have yourself a family then you have no need for friends anymore? Gurl, you be straight up trippin’. You just don’t throw your friends to the curb once you get yourself a family. Sometimes, your family will drive you up the wall cray-cray and your friends are the people who you go to complain about your family to and who you go out with to get away from your family.

I think we all can agree that it would be interesting to see how Chandler, Monica, Joey, Ross, Rachel, and Phoebe interact with each other and with others in this new stage of their life. But alas, it looks like we won’t know if they will still there for each other. Hopefully, we will a reunion in the future because it will answer the age-old question of how the hell they had the power to turn off all of those lights from one lamp.

Shows that should have been left alone: The Powerpuff Girls

banner popEver hear about a remake of a show you just loved and then you watched it and just thought “That should have been left alone”? Well I did and this is how this article was born. So sit back, relax, and let me explain to why they should have let The Powerpuff Girls alone.

After the Cartoon Network hit ended back in 2005, the wonderful country that brought you Sailor Moon, Pokémon, and YuGiOh! thought it would be a magical idea to make the show into an anime called Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z! The show set the girls in New Townsville, or Tokyo City if you are watching the Japanese version. Professor Utonium and his son, Ken Kitazawa, were trying to stop a bunch of icebergs from freezing the city due to a major ecological disaster . So Ken thought it would be a good to shoot some Chemical Z, the next evolution of Chemical X, at it the iceberg which ended up sending a bunch of “Z waves” into the city. This hit three normal girls (Momoko, Miyako and Kaoru) and let them transform into “The Powerpuff Girls Z”. It also hit the Utonium Family’s robotic pet named “Poochi” gained the ability to talk and such but that really isn’t important. The “Z Waves” also created the villains like Mojo Jojo, Him, etc. The three girls, who never knew each before this, became friends and banded together to protect New Townsville.The personalities of the characters are the same as their original counterparts and they stick to the story lines like The Rowdyruff Boys storyline.

This anime wouldn’t have been as horrible if it wasn’t for the fact that they changed so much and pretty much ruined the concept of it. Granted,They changed it to fit with the type of anime it was and to feel like the Super Sentai and Kamen Raider series that are extremely popular  in Japan, but it would have been still as good if they were to stick with the original concept. I do like that the girls are older than what they were in the original series. It adds more to the storyline because there is only so much you can do with kindergartener before you would run out with ideas. But with 13-year-old girls in the 8th grade, you could do way more and make the storylines more in-depth (Something, you think they would have taken advantage of).

The main problem with this show is that they changed so much of it and it just didn’t seem like The Powerpuff Girls we grew up knowing and loving. The way they presented it was also extremely bad. The original show was clever and witty for it being on Cartoon Network, but this show is more childish than anything else. I could go on and on about how bad this anime was but I think that there is an english dub version and it’s been aired everywhere but the United States of America says a lot. Even the creator of the original, Craig McCracken, wasn’t involved in the production(it probably would have rocked then if he was).

They even made a Manga of the original series was created in 2004 and it stuck the original story lines and acted more like an add-on to the original series. This would have been better than this anime. Maybe I’m just an angry fan but I don’t think I’m alone in saying that Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z! was just a major disappointment in something that could have amazed the world. 

So for the first time, Japan has ruined an American Series instead of the other way around.
