Could Jack and Rose Fit on the door?

Lock the doors, lower the blinds, fire up the smoke machine and put on your heels-it’s about to get real up in this bitch. Let’s have a Kiki! For those of you that have lived under a rock, a Kiki is a party, for calming all your nerves. We’re spilling tea, and dishing just desserts one may deserve. In this edition of “Weekly Kiki,” which I should change the name of because this doesn’t happen weekly, we will talk about the controversy of the 1997 film “Titanic.”

For those of you that don’t know, there’s a big fuss over whether or not Rose, played by Kate Winslet, could have let Jack, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, onto the board she was on to save her life and saving his life as well. Spoiler: he died. This has been like decade old debate. Like people have been losing sleep over this and I’m pretty sure many friendships have ended over this. It’s that serious of a deal. It’s serious to a point where Mythbusters debunked it and you know they don’t just debunk anything. According to them, both of them could have easily fit onto the door if Jack removed Rose’s life jacket and stuck it under the door. This would have balanced it out to hold both. Then James Cameron said the following:

Look, it’s very, very simple: you read page 147 of the script and it says, ‘Jack gets off the board and gives his place to her so that she can survive.’ It’s that simple. You can do all the post-analysis you want. OK, so let’s really play that out: you’re Jack, you’re in water thats 28 degrees (-2C), your brain is starting to get hypothermia.

Mythbusters asks you to now go take off your life vest, take hers off, swim underneath this thing, attach it in some way that it won’t just wash out two minutes later – which means you’re underwater tying this thing on in 28-degree water, and that’s going to take you five to ten minutes, so by the time you come back up you’re already dead. So that wouldn’t work. His best choice was to keep his upper body out of the water and hope to get pulled out by a boat or something before he died.”

While I understand this and Jame has a point, it’s hard not to think about the fact that Rose let the “love of her life” just die in front of her and she just watched him die like a psychopath. They could have easily switched out every so often. Hell, they could have paddled towards a direction. Movement would have kept Jack warm and would have helped their chances of survival sightly. Instead, what does Rose do? She freaking taking a nap. So as Jack is freezing his junk off for her to be warm, she’s taking a nap.

Then she takes his last name like some sort of stole identity. So she pretty much watched him die, in-between naps of course, and then took his last name. While some may think that she was honoring her love, who she met just two-day prior, but it’s just a little weird like she has a lot of problems that she should probably see a therapist. Especially after she tried to jump off the side of the ship. Also, you think she would have jumped off when it was sinking but that would be too much sense. But yet, it makes perfect sense to have a “aww this is where we met” as you are about to die.

Let’s also talk about how all of this could have been avoid if Rose would have stayed on the life board. Sure, Jack probably would have been dead by anyways. But if he wasn’t handcuffed to a pipe, then he could have used that door to save his life and they could have lived happily ever. I’m not even going to talk about how they only knew each other for two days….this love story has gone through enough all ready.

 

This kiki was MARVELOUS! Have an opinion on the subject matter or want to tell everyone how wrong it was for Rose not trying to even save Jack? Let us know in the comments below or tweet @Steven_Kaufman using #PopProject.

Meryl Streep vs Donald Trump

trumpstreep-sm

Lock the doors, lower the blinds, fire up the smoke machine and put on your heels-it’s about to get real up in this bitch. Let’s have a Kiki! For those of you that have lived under a rock, a Kiki is a party, for calming all your nerves. We’re spilling tea, and dishing just desserts one may deserve. In this Kiki, we will be discussing politics as we discuss Meryl Streep and the comments she made about President-elect Donald Trump in her acceptance speech at the 2017 Golden Globes on Sunday, January 8th.

Before we dive into what Trump response to it, here’s what she said:

In case you didn’t want to watch the speech, which you should have because it’s Meryl Streep, she called out Trump. This wasn’t just any other speech that calls him out, she didn’t mention him by name. Meryl mention about how that performance, Trump winning the election, was the one that stunned her.

“It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good. There was nothing good about it. But it was effective, and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth.”

She then went on to describe the event that was capture and burned into our mind, Donald Trump openly made fun of a disabled reporter at one of his rallies. Meryl said “And this instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing.”

And in Trump fashion, he took to twitter to talk about his dislike for the speech and how he didn’t make fun of a disabled reporter. Here’s the tweets:

First thing: Meryl Streep is not an over-rated actress. Megan Fox and Kristen Stewart are an over-rated actress. All Megan does it look sexy and I’m pretty sure they have someone off camera say her lines because she looks lost and confused. And Kristen has one look and one tone.  They are over-rated. Meryl Streep is not.

Secondly, how did multiple award-winning actress “lost big?” She got a lifetime achievement award and have been nominated more than anyone else in the room. And how does her support of Hillary Clinton also make her “lose big?” Please further elaborate on this.

Thirdly, There is video proof that Donald Trump did mock him. If Donald has a different definition of mocking, then he needs to look into a dictionary, which Urban Dictionary isn’t the one he needs to look into. Also, the reporter didn’t/doesn’t need to change a story to look bad because Donald Trump is doing a fine job at that himself with his inability to fact check. We’re not even going to discuss how your cabinet looks like you picked them off Craigslist because they are the most random assortment of people. And the media isn’t dishonest, they are just pointing things out that is true. I’ll be first to admit that media’s representation of things lately is “stretched” but when it comes to Donald, they are keeping him honest. Because how can one “Make America Great Again” when you sit there constantly and deny doing or saying things that are filmed?

Lastly, this one goes personally to Donald: If you are planning on going a huge rant like that, type it up in your notes app on your iPhone, screenshot it and post it on Twitter like everyone else. Ending your tweets with “…” and then continuing into another tweet is a sure-fire way for the “dishonest media” to make you look like a bigger ass than what you all ready are. Another way to go on a twitter rant and have no confusing is to have 1/2, 2/2, etc. at the end of the tweets so everyone is on the same page. You also need to stop using Twitter to communicate every detail and every comment. Your Twitter looks and reminds of a teenage girl who is pissed off because her parents took away her Ferrari. If you are suppose to be a representation of “everyday hard-working Americans” then get off Twitter, stop your bitching, put on your big boy pants, and go do some work.

Let’s get rid of the 19th amendment

presidental-kiki-sm

Lock the doors, lower the blinds, fire up the smoke machine and put on your heels-it’s about to get real up in this bitch. Let’s have a Kiki! For those of you that have lived under a rock, a Kiki is a party, for calming all your nerves. We’re spilling tea, and dishing just desserts one may deserve. In this Kiki, we will be discussing politics as we diving into the Trump supporters latest attempt to have him become President.

The site FiveThirtyEight, released infographics about how the election would pan out if just men and just women voted in the election. Here are the infographics:

Because of this, which was a great thing btw. The followers of Trump decided to have #Repealthe19th to become a thing. For those who don’t know, they are referring to the 19th amendment of the constitution that gave women the right to vote. Some of the tweets supporting it was saying that “women aren’t fit for politics“. One female supporter stated that “I would be willing to give up my right to vote to make this happen.” Another female supporter said “men should never have given women the right to vote.”

What.the.actual.fuck. So we should take away a right in order to allow Donald Trump to win. This is why people are viewing the majority of Trump supports as misogynistic jackass that are trying to “weed out” individuals and groups that they see as making America “not great.” Sidenote: does this plan sound familiar? It should because it’s the plan of Hilter and the Nazi in Germany. I know what you are thinking,and yes-this has been brought up by every media outlet in the country but its true. Trump supporters that act like this outweigh the ones that aren’t like that.

But why would you want to take away something that is a right? You guys sit there and tell everyone that they should vote on Election Day, which according to Donald is November 28th, and they you want to take away that right from a group of people just because they may cause your candidate to lose. The right to vote isn’t like a driver’s license that can get taken away when you do something wrong.

It’s also a bunch of bull that you don’t want your right to bear arms to go away but yet you want to #repealthe19th. That makes absoultely no sense and I don’t need to be into politics to see that your platform is a bunch of hypocritical bullshit. Do you know what those people had to go through in order to be able to vote? Google search “Women’s sufferage” and you’ll find it. Spoiler: it’s wasn’t all cupcakes and rainbows. But hey, why do you care because I have the right to bear arms and Donald Trump is president in your perfect world.

Do you also realize that you won’t have half of the rights and laws that are there to help you because of Women? Before the 19th amendment, you really didn’t have women in any political office because women were not seem as equals to men. By removing the 19th amendment you are pretty much setting back equality and proving that you are a massive group of assholes that is in a one-sided pissing contest to prove you are the best. Congratulations assholes, you won that one with your idiotic attempt to #Repealthe19th.

You also think that Donald Trump would come out and tell his supporters not to do this because he “respects women.” But yet, where is his statement on this? Especially after the fiasco of his leaked audio coming out and proving that is a pig and view women as piece of meat and they aren’t valued members of this country. Bottom line people is you need to lose the hypocritical bullshit with your platform and pick your battles when it comes rights. You can’t take away someones right and then complain when people are looking to take away one of yours. The “eye for an eye” concept doesn’t work this day and age.
