How ya doin Cruisers? Welcome back and thank you for your continued support. We will be talking about females in music, TV, and comics. I know my title sounds like something you would see on a strip club sign but no strippers here. Sorry.
Halsey- Hopeless Fountain Kingdom
I was actually looking forward to listening to this album because I liked her last album. The introduction began and it was the prologue to Romeo and Juliet. I have to say, I almost cut off the album. But then I thought,. “Maybe this reference to high school literature means something”. I thought that it was a hint to a concept album where the songs told some sort of story. It wasn’t. The album is some introspective thing about feeling alone or something. As far as introspective albums go, I’ve heard better.
Dua Lipa- Dua Lipa
So I heard her voice on a Sean Paul song and I liked her sound. So I decided to give her album a shot. I have to say, I really liked it. She sings with a great deal of soul. I especially liked “Thinking Bout You” and “Garden”. I think the best way to describe the album is a dynamic, interesting voice over some electronic dancehall-type beats. I’m not quite sure that she will become that popular in America. I think she will go the way of Emile Sande, great voice, great music, popular in the UK, but popular with only a small group in the U.S.
I just recently began reading the Kill Bill of comics, Jennifer Blood. Originally published in 2012, it is the story of a woman who is a housewife by day, and a vengeance-seeking killing machine at night. From guns to bombs, to poisons, she finds various ways of killing the people that killed her parents. And she does this right under the noses of her straight-laced husband and kids. Honestly, I’m surprised she hasn’t collapsed from exhaustion, this is one busy woman! But she is always one mistake away from getting caught and there have been quite a few close calls. The comic is written by the same guy who wrote Preacher, Garth Ennis. I’m still reading the comic and I’m looking forward to seeing what is going to happen.
Orange Is The New Black
Did anyone see that first episode…fantastic!!! Things get CRAZY up in the ladies pen!!! I didn’t binge watch because I have a lot of things to do, but I did finish that first episode. OITNB has some of the best writing and acting out there. I do not want to talk too much about the show because spoilers. There’s a life lesson in the show as well, underwear is important.
Queen of the South
Another great show. I finished the first season on the ‘Flix and it was nonstop suspense. There is so much betrayal in this show, I started not to trust myself. I’m giving my dog the side-eye as we speak. The things the main character (Theresa Mendoza) has to go through to survive is ridiculous. Again..fantastic writing and fantastic acting.
Dragon Ball Super
THE TOURNAMENT HAS BEGUN!!! Just kidding. Still nothing.
This post went out later than I had hoped but next time…
