I found quite a few songs in the last few weeks that I’ve just fallen in love with, and since I haven’t shared any new song that I’ve discovered in a while I thought this week was the perfect opportunity since I haven’t had a lot of time to do much else as my huge work project is finally at go-live time. After this next week, I should have way more time again where I can blog and explore new things.
Last week, I saw the movie adaption for Fallen and I was confused as hell, yet intrigued. Also honestly I have only been reading books from the Shadowhunters Chronicles (The Mortal Instruments, The Dark Artifices, and The Infernal Devices) for the last several months, so it was time for something different. I picked up all six books from The Fallen Series and so far have only read the main four books: Fallen, Torment, Passion, and Rapture. Instead of doing a review of each book in the series, I’m just going to share my thoughts overall on the series.View Post
The Exorcist is one of those films where the horror just doesn’t hold up over time. Or maybe we’re just desensitized to horror and gore these days from the news and internet that it no longer holds the same freight level it used to. When this film first came out, people were vomiting, fleeing the theater and their were priests there for the movie-goers. Since I’m on a bit of a classic horror movie recreation for this Halloween, I had to attempt Regan from The Exorcist.View Post
When it comes to Disney, I can’t help myself I have to have it. I have seen almost every Disney movie at least five times. And can break out into any song at the sheer mention of a line. So, when ColourPop announced the Midnight Masquerade collection with Disney (their third collaboration) I wanted it in the worst way. My sister ended up surprising me by getting me the entire collection not just part of it as my Christmas present. Yes, several months early but you know what I’m in love!View Post
The Pop Culture Download #14: American Horror Story: Apocalypse, Fallen, and Ghosts of the Shadow Market
It’s been two weeks since I posted one of these, and honestly with work I haven’t had much time for shows, movies, and games but I did manage to watch the entire eighth season of American Horror Story as well as watch a movie called Fallen. Plus, there are a few other random items here and there so let’s jump into my thoughts on these items.View Post
Haven’t done one of these in a while on the blog, but I had some spare time and it’s Spooky Season, so next up in my Classic Horror Makeup Series is Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street. Complete with body painted outfit and tin foil blade fingers since I’m on a budget.View Post
This week I have been heavily reading completing the rest of The Infernal Devices series: Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess, by Cassandra Clare. Now I have no idea what I’m going to go onto next. Comparing the three series in the Shadowhunter Chronicles, I would have to put this one in second place after the first half of The Mortal Instruments (City of Bones to City of Glass). I love the second half of The Mortal Instruments, but The Infernal Devices just ranks slightly higher than those. The Dark Artifices comes in after followed by Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy.View Post
