Meghan Trainor is Wow!

Is it me or is Meghan Trainor so incredibly hot these days?

Now ladies, this isn’t exactly what you think. When I say she is hot, I’m not just referring to her in the looks sense. Don’t believe me? Well, yes, she is very attractive and she has an amazing set of legs. She’s also got an incredibly pretty smile and beautiful eyes. But that’s not all! There is something so endearing about her that just makes her a multitude more times attractive. 

I do laugh at some of the labels she gets though. Rolling Stone magazine labelled her in 2014 as the world’s most unlikely pop star while various periodicals have praised her as the poster girl for plus size women. I mean, seriously, when are we going to do away with these ridiculous labels. That being said, if she has inspired women to embrace their curves, then that’s all the better. I wish there were similar role models out there for men. Fat men are usually portrayed as lazy, stupid and pretty much awful human beings after all. 

One thing that makes Meghan so attractive is her retro style that she embraces. It’s pretty fun and I think it adds a nice twist to things. I mean, these days, the styles that go around are quite “interesting”.  It does help that she a talented singer songwriter too as talent is always attractive. I find that I am always drawn to people who are passionate. And of course, she also has a great voice too. 

I’m really hoping to see a lot more of her in 2017 and I’m hoping she doesn’t eventually conform to the standards that the media sets these days. I found it interesting that on her last album, the cover work or something had to be withdrawn because her picture had been doctored without her approval but she got that changed.  Hopefully they don’t eventually get to her…

Shakira – Try Everything (from the movie Zootopia)

Having just bought this song after watching the fun movie Zootopia / Zootropolis, I thought I would also share it with you! It’s very catchy! Enjoy. 

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I messed up tonight, I lost another fight
I still mess up but I’ll just start again
I keep falling down, I keep on hitting the ground
I always get up now to see what’s next

Birds don’t just fly, they fall down and get up
Nobody learns without getting it wrong

I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again
No I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail
I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again
No, I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Look how far you’ve come, you filled your heart with love
Baby you’ve done enough, take a deep breath
Don’t beat yourself up, don’t need to run so fast
Sometimes we come last, but we did our best

I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again
No I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail
I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again
No I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail

I’ll keep on making those new mistakes
I’ll keep on making them every day
Those new mistakes

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Try everything

Are Little Mix dressing like “Strippers”?

Little Mix were recently SLAMMED for wearing ‘stripper and prostitute’ outfits for X Factor Shoutout To My Ex performance. It apparently even brought on the wrath of Spice Girl Mel C who said the band were “too provocative” for her 7 year old daughter. Many viewers felt the same way. 

Little Mix have had a lot of traction and attention for their new single Shoutout to My Ex ahead of their appearance on the X Factor , but their presence on the show was slammed by viewers.

The girls, who shot to fame after winning the family entertainment show in 2011, got blasted for wearing some extremely revealing clothes and were even called “prostitutes” by some of the viewers just a day after Spice Girl Mel C slammed them for being too sexy for her daughter to watch.

As the girls took to the stage audience members didn’t know where to look as long legs, groins and buttocks were flashed on display for everyone to see.

One fan of the show said: “Why are they all wearing their swimming costumes? # XFactor “.

It seemed that the theme for the girls was less is more, as they danced, gyrated and strutted across the stage in barely any clothing.

While over the knee boots was the one item they all rocked, thighs and bums on show was the other thing they all had in common.

Jesy Nelson looked particularly raunchy in her outfit and was picked out for criticism by viewers with one man writing: “Jesy needs to cover up ASAP”. 

But when it came to the wardrobe choices of Little Mix, reviews were more than a little bit scathing.

“Girl role models? really? dressed like that?” said one, as another posted: “Are you joking!? The strippers have arrived then … # XFactor “.

To be honest, I don’t see the big deal as such. Granted, while their outfits are rather provocative, they are not doing something unique per say. I mean, I already highlighted in my recent post how it is now acceptable to have partial nudity and two girls kissing on day time television, so why can’t a girl band dance provocatively to push their music?

Perhaps part of the reason behind people’s displeasure is down to comments the girls made in the past. 

Speaking to the BBC last year Jesy said: “Do you know what? I think it’s different for girl bands. Fans can find it intimidating if you’re being sexy.

Bandmate Perrie then added: “We’re not about that anyway. We’re in our own lane, we know what we stand for. We want to inspire people.”
Jade then added: “There’s no need to do that kind of dancing. Obviously, sometimes we do do a bit of sexy dancing but it’s more empowering.”

Perrie, who was the main writer of their new single, which is aimed at Zayn Malik, agreed: “Yeah, it’s sassy. Not gyrating on the floor thrusting our vaginas.”

“If we’re a bit sexy, we’re a bit sexy, if we’re not, we don’t really care. We don’t feel like we have to have really skimpy outfits. We do whatever the heck we want.”

Let’s be honest now, this performance was in no way as bad as some of the stuff Miles Cyrus has done in recent times. And let’s face it. Sex sells. 

The performance did what it was intended to do in that it stirred up attention. More people will google their performance because they’ll be intrigued what the fuss is about. It will also garner for male attention. I’m not a male chauvinist but before their last album, I had never had any interest in them (mostly because I never listen to the radio). But when they started doing TV commercials in scantily clad attires, I was like…hello? I know it’s not right but it does grab attention. I hope that doesn’t make me a bag person. It’s just natural I think. 

That being said, I’m not sure I’d be happy if that was daughter.  Then again, if Miley Cyrus was my daughter, I’d want her committed to a psych ward.

Electric Dreams (1984) – Movie Review

Way before Spike Jonze’s “Her” came a movie called “Electric Dreams”. Actually, this was way before people freely explored the internet and before people thought that computers were cool. 

Electric Dreams is a 1984 American-British science fiction romantic comedy-drama film set in San Francisco, California, that depicts a love triangle between a man, a woman and a computer. It stars Lenny Von Dohlen (Twin Peaks), Virginia Madsen (Sideways and Candyman), Maxwell Caulfield (Grease 2), and the voice of Bud Cort (Braindead) and was directed by Steve Barron, who also directed Mike Bassett – England Manager. It also has the honour of being the first film released by the Virgin Films production company. It’s designed in your typical cheesy 80s fashion but don’t let that fool you. This film is all kinds of funky. 

Miles Harding is an architect who envisions a brick shaped like a jigsaw puzzle piece that could enable buildings to withstand earthquakes. Seeking a way to get organized, he buys a personal computer to help him develop his ideas. Although he is initially unsure that he will even be able to correctly operate the computer, he does what every good technology geek does and buys numerous extra gadgets that were not necessary for his work, such as switches to control household appliances like the blender, a speech synthesizer, and a microphone. When Miles attempts to download the entire database from a mainframe computer at work, his computer begins to overheat. In a state of panic, Miles uses a nearby bottle of champagne to douse the overheating machine, which then becomes sentient.

If a sentient computer wasn’t enough to set your appetite, as mentioned earlier on, a love triangle soon ensues between Miles, his computer (who later identifies himself as “Edgar”), and Miles’ neighbor, an attractive cellist named Madeline. That’s right! 

Obviously all hell breaks loose and the movie comes to one hell of a climax. 

The movie scores a 6.5 from IMDB which is possibly a little bit unfair but don’t let that put you off. It actually is a pretty cool film. I mean,  look at this way. This was way before computers had gained such a big foothold in every day life. The idea of having a computer that could control your home with a few clicks was something of crazy science fiction times yet look where we are today with things like Apple’s HomeKit. The idea that people could converse or ask computers question too seemed the stuff of fantasy yet today we have Siri or Cortana. I’m not saying that your latest phone or Xbox is going to get the hots for your next door neighbor. Personally, I’d be pissed if mine did because I really don’t need anymore competition as I’m already struggling but I still think it’s quite funky to see people’s ideas of computing and how far we have come in the 32 years since. 

The film also boasts a pretty kick arse soundtrack which no doubt was influenced by Richard Branson’s influence (He is the owner of Virgin).  The soundtrack features music from prominent popular musicians of the time, being among the movies of this generation that actively explored the commercial link between a movie and its soundtrack. 

The main song of the movie was called “Together in Electric Dreams”. If you like 80s music, you really should check it out (It’s by Philip Oakey and Giorgio Moroder). Here it is!

Remember. We’ll always be together. However far it seems! We’ll always be together. Together in Electric Dreams. 

Top 10 WWE Entrance Themes of All Time

What are your favourite WWE entrance themes?

WrestlingMania 24/7

Today’s top 10 is the top 10 entrance themes of all time in the WWE. Disagree? Please share your favourites.

10. Vince McMahon – Jim Johnston’s “No Chance in Hell”.

Reason? This iconic entrance theme was synonymous with the Attitude era and indeed many a great feud, in particular with Mr McMahon’s feud with Stone Cold Steve Austin. Was one of the first theme songs that got me on my return to WWE viewing.

9. D’Lo Brown – Jim Johnston’s “The Real Deal”

To this day, I still like this tune. It’s everything the Attitude era was. Badass! It’s just a pity D’Lo’s career never really took off although the Droz incident likely played a role in that.

8. Degeneration X – Run DMC’s “The Kings”

Although it was only DX’s entrance theme for a short period of time, I still prefer it to the original and more popular…

Songs that are NOT subtle 

Firstly I want to start with an early warning that many of the videos I am going to show you include explicit lyrics. This is not suitable for any youngster and I would go as far as to say that no one under the age of 18 should really be listening to this music….

NOW, I want to start by saying that I am not a prude. But throughout my life, there have been times where I have been shocked by song lyrics. Some of these songs below are relatively harmless but when you put into context the age that I heard them, it literally blew my mind. Then again, I guess I was a pretty innocent kid growing up. 

So here are my picks for not so subtle songs from over the last couple of decades. 

Vengaboys – Boom Boom Boom Boom

Comment: Okay so this song isn’t shocking as such but rather is lacking in subtlety. For a 13/14 year old boy, hearing the lyrics “Boom boom boom boom! I want to go boom boom. Let’s spend the night together. Together in my room” was kind of a whaaaat? moment. 

Spice Girls – 2 Become 1

Comment: Hearing this song again really makes me chuckle. This song came out in 1996 which would have made me about 12 and I remember hearing this with my friends and thinking this was the most erotic song ever! “Oh my God they are singing about sex” we thought we were the enlightened ones. Man I had a massive crush on Baby Spice. 

Mousse T feat. Hot and Juicy – Horny

Comment: This is another blast from the past circa 1998. Again what’s funny about this is not that the song was explicit but the fact that the song was so blatant. What’s equally funny is that when I heard it, I had no idea what horny even meant! It’s kind of embarrassing looking back now as I sang out loud “I’m horny! I’m horny horny horny!”

The Divinyls – I touch myself

Comment: Oh my God, what a shock this song was to me. I heard it for the first time in the mid 90s and in a Chris Farley movie and I genuinely just thought the tune was funky without paying any attention to the lyrics. Eventually the VHS of the film I had broke and I couldn’t find a replacement. Then, a number of years later I found the DVD and watched it again excitedly. The song came on and I was really happy so I searched for it online to listen to it again when the lyrics struck me and I went bright red. Oh my God did I search for the music video fast! I hope some day some lady has the same feeling described in the lyrics for me ha ha!

Hot Action Cop: Fever for the Flava. 

Comment: embarrassingly I was over 18 and just really liked the tune when I first heard this. It wasn’t till I paid attention and listened to the lyrics did I fully grasp this song. And bloody hell! These lyrics are pretty explicit!!

“Do you think that I could get some (jiggy jiggy)…Maybe gets a little finga (sticky sticky)”

“What do I have to say to get inside girl, what do I have to say?”

Yep. Says it all. 

Peaches – F*ck the Pain Away

Comment: I heard this song for the first time at University and I was shocked what I was hearing. And I mean, while I had heard crude chatter before this, genuinely surprised me. I can’t say it was even sexy. It just seemed…wrong. 

Khia – My neck, my back (lick it)

Comment: Say what now? I don’t really know where to begin with this one. I heard it for the first time in a club and I had to do a double take. I also think she says she wants someone to lick her…crack? WHAT?

Lonely Island feat Akon – I just had sex

Comment: BAHAHAHAHAHA! This song is HILLARIOUS. I love Andy Samberg and this song cracks me up. Plus I’ve never seen Akon so happy. I guess he’s not Mr Lonely anymore. 

Top 5 most annoying pop songs of the last 16 years. 

Wow, there have been some great tunes over the last 16 years. Epic songs by Coldplay, Muse, Katy Perry and Ellie Goulding. Okay okay, I may not have the coolest taste in music but still, those songs have nothing on these five disasterpieces. 

5. “Lonely” by Akon

Secret admission here. I go to and fro from absolutely marking out to this tune to absolutely detesting it. Right now, I just laugh at the Chipmunk chorus BUT there was a time where I admittedly really liked it.  *Hangs head in shame*

4. “Beautiful” by James Blunt

Okay so I might actually be giving this song an unnecessarily hard time. The fact that when this song came out, I was trying to get over (very badly) this girl who I felt was the love of my life but who was seeing (and alas ended up marrying) this other guy. And I “had to face the truth” that I could never be with her. This song made me cry multiple times and now it just annoys me terribly. It still reminds me of her 13 years later. 

3. “It Doesn’t Matter” by Melky Sedeck, Wyclef Jean and The Rock

The Rock is awesome. Hell, the people’s champ is the reason I got back into wrestling in 2000 after a long absence because of the man’s sheer charisma, comedic timing and bad assery. And Wyclef Jean has also had his moments. But this song, if you can all it that, was awful. 

2.  “Axel F by Crazy Frog”

This abomination is the spawn of a bizarrely successful ringtone and I swear some mad scientist somewhere. The Beverly Hills Cop tune is tiresome enough on its own but add a crazy frog to it and you get – apparently – a multi week number one hit. 

1. THE WORST: “Beautiful Girls” by Sean Kingston

Oh my God, there are not enough words to describe how much I hate this song. Everything from the cheesy background music / rip off of Stand By Me to his voice. I loathe this tune. It makes me “Suicidal”. If you can stomach it, click below.
