The Ode to really really really liking someone

Everyone’s favorite Canadian that happens to be older than Adele is back and she has literally created a sequel to her hit song “Call Me Maybe.” That’s right, Carly Rae Jepsen is back and she’s telling some boy (or girl, we don’t judge) that she really likes them in her newest single “I Really Like You” Before you read our review, listen to the song here:

The song itself is catchier than getting crabs at Charlie Sheen’s house. It will have you scratching away humming the chorus. And like crabs, it doesn’t go right away. It’s pretty much the same formula that was used to create “Call Me Maybe.” It’s like she said “Why fix something that isn’t broke?” and mashed it with “Tonight I’m Getting Over You” and this was a baby we got. The song talks about liking someone and trying to tell some that you really like them even though it’s not going to last.

What’s not working for the song? The fact that it’s probably more too childish for someone who is Carly’s age. Yes, I went there. The song is shallower than a plastic kiddy pool. While sometimes it’s good, but it’s not in this case. It would be better if there was more too it than her singing really like 5 hundred times.

Overall, it’s going to be a summer hit and we shall get ready to listen to it for months now. Even if it’s a horrible song.

The End is Glee

Midseason thoughts

There is only three weeks left of Glee and I thought that I would share my thoughts on the newest and final season of American’s version of Degrassi, but Glee knows when it’s time to end.

Season Six of Glee is pretty much amazing. It’s so much better than the last two seasons. The story arches have been good and the music this season has been so good that you kinda want to spent money every week to buy it. Now my only problem with this season, and it’s a problem that the show openly makes fun of (which I love and despise), I want to know more about the lives of the newbies.

Unlike the failed attempt in season four, this new set of Glee kids are actually amazing and I want more of them. I really don’t care to see Rachel, Kurt, and Blaine anymore and I’m tired of dealing with their shiz. I want to know more about Jane, Spencer, Roderick, and the twins that I don’t remember their names (we will call them Jerry and Terry). I think I would care more about the alumni if they interacted more with the newbies. The last set of newbies were just bland and carbon copies as they tried to replace the alumni. The only I liked was Kitty. Her bluntness and evilness is adorable. Then I like that she has a male clone in Spencer who is an absolute dick, who just happens to be gay.

Sue Sylvester is also funnier than ever and well….being Sue. If you thought she funnier before, well she tops herself.

Overall, the season is good and I want more of Glee.

Selena wants us to know about Zedd

zeddlena

Selena Gomez is back and this time, she is teaming up with the German hunk that has stolen her heart Zedd (I cannot guarantee if I will not refer to Zedd as Lord Zedd). They decided that they will take their love and produce a love baby in the form of the song “I Want You to Know.” And we decided to review the single for you, that way you can save your eardrums if the song is bad: If you want to take the leap with us, here the song:

The song itself is a catchy song. It describes the love that Zedd and Selena has (or at least I like to think so).   Now the song itself is an okay song. It isn’t like Selena’s previous album Stars Dance but at the same time it’s better than the crap she threw at us on the Greatest Hits album (minus The Heart Wants What it Wants and My Dilemma 2.0). I expect it to be one of those songs that will grow over you in time but it’s not anything that I thought it would be. I had low expectations on it. While Zedd is a powerhouse when it comes to producing and releasing singles, it just felt like it was a demo. The best part was the beats at the end. I think it was mainly because of the person singing it.

While Selena has grown into a decent singer, she still doesn’t have a voice like some of the artist that Zedd has worked with. The song will be a bit better if there was a different sing that gave it a little more to it.

Overall, the song is an okay song. It’s not spectacular nor is it horrible. It’s just okay.

Pretty Guardians are still awesome..kinda

sailor moon redub

Fighting evil by the moonlight, winning love by the daylight…Viz Media has released the complete unedited version of everyone favorite and first anime, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. Luckily for everyone that doesn’t speak and understand Japanese, Viz also decided to redub the anime in English including with English subtitles if we decided we want the full classic Sailor Moon experience. Here is our review of the newly dub Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon (Don’t worry, we will be review Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal too!)

Let’s get one thing out: This isn’t like the Sailor Moon that you remember in the 90’s. While it looks like it, it’s literally the Japanese anime in English. You will notice it straight out of the bat with the theme song. While it has the same beat, it’s all in Japanese and is better sung. Here’s the two together:

This is also the first time the ever single episode will be dub in English and shown. That’s right, the original was holding out on us….those bastards. With that being said, this is pretty much the Japanese version wrapped up in an English-speaking bow and I’m actually okay with this. There is certain things that I would change thought but all in all, I like not having to watch for subtitles. It’s actually interesting to remember what the original English version was and what it should have been.

I wasn’t a big fan of the first part of Season One (it’s Season One, part One if you are going by the DVD). It was too slow and majority of the episodes just felt like they were filler. It really made sense why so many episodes of the first half of Season One didn’t make the cut over here in America. It really started to pick up after Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Venus joined during the second part of Season Two. The build up there was pretty much perfect. There was enough filler   and it kept up with the pacing until the end. Oh, there was also a gay romance going on between two of the villains. In the original English Dub, one was turned into the girl with no boobs because they wanted to teach children everywhere that not every girl will get boobs (sad, but true statement that girls with size A boobs deal with everyday).

Now the voices are something that they should have improved on. Luna’s voice doesn’t sound like a mentor (I miss the British accent). Luna sounds like she should be around the age of Usagi’s, Sailor Moon, age. I would have tried to get the original actors to reprise their roles, which I believe many of them would have. This would have brought on the nostalgia feels.

Overall, I enjoyed watching Sailor Moon, especially in its entirety, but it could have been better. Hopefully, they pick the ball up when they released the Second season, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon R.
