Can I talk about how bad Jasmine's song/character is?

2020.09.09 23:18 Pandaswithoutspots Can I talk about how bad Jasmine's song/character is?

Please don't get me wrong, the song itself is pretty good and Naomi Scott is gorgeous but in this movie the song and Jasmine's new characterization is just kinda bad. They're pressing strong independent female too much and making it look bad, in the original animated version you didn't have to press this because we could tell she was smart and strong through her actions, ones that didn't make the cut for this "longer than the original" movie. Jasmine sneaking out could have been featured her quick wit and physical ability just like Aladdin sneaking in, instead we get a worse version of "Princess doesn't understand money". I could go on about how bad she is but I digress, because the song is what's really important.
I'll start with the actual beginning of the song, where she flat out states old female roles are just for show and how history has seen girls silenced, a little on the nose but fine for her point. What bothers me here is, there's a full verse and chorus of this song before the version we hear in the movie.
Here comes a wave Meant to wash me away A tide that is taking me under Swallowing sand Left with nothing to say My voice drowned out in the thunder
But I won't cry And I won't start to crumble Whenever they try To shut me or cut me down
I cannot begin to stress how much better this would have been than the lines she sung. This is literally what is happening in the scene! A big bad has come to drown her and her family out, Jasmine is literally being taken away, she's going unheard, and she's staying strong; she's staying strong by showing it not saying it. The audience is not dumb, kids are not that dumb despite what these writers seem to think. If you get to listen to this full song, the natural build up of emotions sounds much better as well, the abrasive start of general issues opposed to "this moment" issues in the movie makes her sound whiny, for lack of better words. The first chorus in the full song is even calmer and more gentle than the second, this build up is what the movie missed. We aren't hinted enough at this building up in the movie so it needs ground to build in the song, this is because of her portrayal as a strong female, we only really get a push from Jafar with the earlier prelude to Speechless. Jasmine just isn't the quiet damsel taking her first stand this song needed, she got input on the little war discussion her father and Jafar were having, she talks to her handmaiden, the way she talks at the party/around Aladdin, there's just not enough contrast in her actions.

Next she has this wonderful part about not taking this lying down, the camera work for this makes me drool. She has this weird direction on the line " Though you wanna see me tremble when you try it ", where she's looking at her father. The implication is that the earlier trying to find her a suitor and follow tradition is supposed to be what she is defying in this line, but in the middle of Jafar's takeover and her father being taken prisoner, it comes as if her father is her current biggest oppressor. The film did make him a little pushy, but the point being made puts her father and Jafar on the same level of putting Jasmine in "her place" and making her cower. It's further enforced when she pulls down a hanging tapestry with what is presumably a family or royal pattern on it, which may be a reference to tearing down old societal norms, but feels more like she's just sick of being a princess. The point of this song should be rebellion, but it takes away from the big bad to focus on teenage rebellion and overall lessens the impact when it tries to focus on her father.

The final shot is of Jasmine in and empty room and her in front of the throne with a look of determination(?) on her face. A person with too much emotion alone in a throne room is usually a shot you get of a tyrant, this is symbolic of pushing people away in an effort to get to the top, the last few notes are even sad sounding. This strange theme is furthered by her "obstacles" disappearing on her way to the center of the room. This doesn't match what happens in the animation or the live action.

And without a doubt the WORST part of this movie, Jasmine gives a wonderful heartfelt speech showing how she knows her citizens and has a strong sense of empathy, it even shows her words have power, then... it throws everything away. Just when it seems like she bought time for Aladdin and made a distraction so he could get the lamp, Jafar just snaps his fingers and makes everything she did MEANINGLESS. There's nothing wrong with giving Jasmine a female empowerment song, but this was so wrong I legitimately cannot think about this song without getting upset. What they did was literally silence her, they made her actions, HER BIG MOMENT, all mean nothing; it is literally the opposite of what the song was saying in it's lyrics! The message people watching this get is: "Your actions are won't do anything, it's pointless to try." The contradiction of "smart, strong, independant" princess to a damsel in distress is what ruins Jasmine in the live action.

TLDR: Jasmine's character is the worst because she gets nothing done and is fake.
I could go on but I've had enough of how bad she is today, I did some research for this post and it just got worse. There's even a clear way to fix this, if anyone cares.

2020.09.07 23:48 BijouX677 Movie Monday: Aladdin (1992)

I'm just from watching Aladdin...and I have to say, it's much better than I remembered. I hadn't watched it in years so I forgot most of it. The story was captivating, interesting and funny. The characters were also better than I remembered. It definitely deserves all the hype it gets.
Before I begin, I just want to say Robin William's (May He Rest in Peace) voice acting is phenomenal. He did very well at captivating the Genie's fun, whacky, and cheerful character.
Okay, here goes:
The Animation
The animation was certainly eye-catching. It does really well at showcasing the freedom animation has. In Animation (especially 2D) everything can be fluid and flow in whichever direction it wants. The shapes don't have to be stiff or realistic, they can be any size or form.
I really enjoyed the various shapes and sizes they used with their character designs and buildings. Nothing needed to have a defined shape, it was just free...and that really added to the visual charm of this movie.
I liked the colours and aesthetics they used in the cave of wonders. It made the cave look so magical and entrancing. Same with the colours they used all around Agrabah. They gave the plain desert a much brighter and lively feel with the golden, red and purple themes they sprinkled all around the buildings, cities, people and sand.
When it comes to the character designs, I think they were all great. But what I want to look at is the amount of skill it must have taken to animate the Genie. I'm impressed with how seamlessly they were able to animate his transitions from different shapes, sizes, faces and characters. Accompanied by Robin Williams's amazing voice acting, all of Genie's appearances were wonderful to listen to and look at.
The Songs
The songs in Aladdin were great. I mainly want to focus on 3: Prince Ali, A Whole New World, and the End Title.
Before I do that, I'd like to acknowledge Arabian Nights, One Jump Ahead, and Friend Like Me. All of these songs are amazing as well. They are catchy, fun and the scenes they are in are wonderful to look at as well.
Prince Ali
Prince Ali is an amazing song. It's huge, fun and wacky. It's a wide burst of energy. The visuals in Prince Ali are bright and colourful. The 100s of different characters, animals and objects that were animated for this song look great. The amount of effort put into this is very admirable.
Prince Ali is a very memorable and catchy song. Whenever I think Aladdin this is one of the first things that comes to my mind. I think the singing in this song is really good. I like the incorporation of different characters (including Genie's many characters) in each verse. It gives this song a really unique and interesting flare.
A Whole New World
This song is definitely high up on my list for one of my favourite Disney Love Songs. The vocals and the lyrics in this song are great. Alan Menken (Music) and Tim Rice (Lyrics) did a really good job. As well as Brad Kane and Lea Salonga who sang as Aladdin and Jasmine.
It's a really beautiful song. Aladdin gives Jasmine something she longs for so much, Freedom. Freedom as they travel through the clouds and see the world from up above. Jasmine gets to travel and see beyond the walls of the castle, far beyond what she has ever seen before. It's a really sweet scene, and it's beauty is expressed and captured more with the addition of this great love song.
This song won an Oscar for Best Original Song.
A Whole New World (End Title)
The reason I'm adding this here is because I love all the Disney 1990s end titles. They all had that wonderful 90s vibe to them. In all the Disney 1990s movies, I have never skipped the end credits, and it's because of these wonderful end titles. This A Whole New World version also sounds really cool. Definitely a fitting end for this amazing movie.
Also, this version won a Grammy for Song of the Year.
The Characters
All of the characters were unique and interesting.
Aladdin: Aladdin is such a smart, charming and kind boy. I really liked the scene were he gave his bread to those young kids who were in the same situation as he was. It's like he saw himself in them, and instead of pretending he didn't see them struggle, he helped. I liked his arc as well. He developed and realised he didn't need to change to be with Jasmine and could be himself. Also, it's like his dream changed. His dream was to be free from poverty and to have riches (like that of a sultan)....then his dream changed into Love. Being free to love and be with Jasmine, and at the end, the got together.
Jasmine: Jasmine is a really smart, independent and compassionate character. I love her passion for freedom. She is a really strong and fiesty character. She is passionate about her right to freedom and her voice. From the beginning of the movie we see that she must be married off...and it seems as though people are making decisions for her. She doesn't want that and she wants to be free to make her own decisions, to explore and travel, and to marry for love. I really like that message, and it's really inspiring...for children and adults alike.
Genie: The Genie is a really eccentric, fun-loving and goofy character. Just like Jasmine and Aladdin, he wants freedom. He is bound to the lamp and whoever is his master...but luckily at the end of the movie, Aladdin set him free. I love how he turns into multiple characters with different voices and faces and personalities. He is such a funny and fantastic character....every scene he is in is very interesting.
Jafar: I feel like Jafar, just like many of the other Disney Villains, is a representation of a real life villain. I see him as a person in power who is corrupted and selfish. Many leaders also have bad advisors that lead them down the wrong path...that is also a kind of character similar to Jafar's. Jafar was sinister, greedy and cruel...was he a good villain? Yeah, I think he was. The fact that I can clearly see his motives and the reasons for his action, shows that he was written well.
The Story
The story was captivating and fun. It was really interesting and never got boring. I think it flowed really well, and I didn't find too many plot points that were dragged too long. I'm not too great at finding plot holes, so I didn't see any and I can't say anything about that. But if you have any negatives or positives to add about the story/plot, then feel free to comment.
Opposites
Aladdin and Jasmine are in a way, opposites of eachother.
Aladdin is a boy living in poverty. He wants freedom. Freedom from poverty. He wants to live in a palace and have riches. He grew up on the streets alone and cast aside. He was an orphan on the streets of Agrabah (in the first movie before he found out his father was alive in the 3rd movie).
Jasmine is a girl living in a palace. She is a princess. She wants freedom. Freedom from the confines of royal life. She wants to be free to choose who she loves and she wants to explore places beyond the walls of the palace.
These are two characters that have what the other has. Aladdin has the freedom Jasmine longs for...and Jasmine is free from poverty, something Aladdin wants. Throughout the movie...these opposites give eachother want the other wants.
Aladdin takes Jasmine on a magic carpet ride and she gets to explore. They fall inlove and Jasmine gets to marry for Love. Aladdin is free from poverty at the end of the movie but that's not the most prominent thing to me. I think Aladdin also wants to be content with something....in the beginning of the movie it was riches...he wouldn't be cast aside anymore. At the end of the movie he was content, content with the love he found in Jasmine. They fulfilled eachother's dreams.
In other words, these two complete eachother.
The Topic of Freedom
Freedom can mean many things. Detachment, Priviledge, Liberty and so on. Freedom is a topic that is very important to three characters in this story. I mentioned it a bit before on Opposites. Anyway, it is important to Jasmine, Aladdin and the Genie. But in different ways.
Aladdin wants to be free from Poverty. Jasmine, the confines and rules of Royal Life. Genie, freedom from the Lamp/Eternal imprisonment. These are all different people, who all want different types of freedom.
So, an the end this movie poses a question. What type of freedom do you want? What do you want to be free from? It's a really thought provoking question, especially since freedom can mean so many things.
Anyway, what did you think of Aladdin? Please say in the comments.
Thanks for Reading.

In the werkroom...
The queens re-enter the workroom and discuss Cheryl's departure. Jasmine jokes that she must be the new lip sync assassin of the season. Crystal talks about how shocking it was to see Cheryl get eliminated in a lip sync since she's such a fierce performer. Lineysha tells the girls it's time to congratulate Kandy on her second challenge win. Kandy says she feels that this just goes to show how tough the competition is since the girls all have very similar "report cards". Lineysha then jokes that it's only Crystal who doesn't have a second win.
The next day...
After the queen enter the werkroom they begin discussing who they think will not make the finale. Jasmine says she thinks it's still anyone's game so she can't get too comfortable. Lineysha mentions that Crystal would need to really step it up if she plans to overtake the other girls since she has less wins. Crystal tells her that they've seen frontrunners demolished over rose petals so not to count her out just yet. Michelle Visage enters and tells the queens that it's time to put on an extravaganza. She explains to the queens that this will be the most demanding challenge that they have done thus far. The queens must write and record their own singles that they will perform live during the Extravaganza. The queens will need to learn demanding choreography from Jamal Sims for the opening "Sexy, Sexy Drag Queen" and even promote their new singles on Alaska and Willam's podcast "Race Chasers"! Every time a new layer was revealed the queens jaws dropped further open. As soon as she leaves the queens all separate to begin writing their lyrics. Jasmine and Kandy both seem really confident with what they've created. While Lineysha is a nervous wreck.
In the recording studio...
Crystal records her single "It's Crystal Clear Bitch" and is having a lot of fun with it. She talks about needing to redeem herself after getting sent home with "Break Up, Bye Bye". Kandy records her single "Sweetest Ho" and gets a lot of notes about the track needing to be amp'd up. Jasmine records her single "And I Oop" and was able to impress with her comedic rap skills. Lineysha records her single "La Puteria" and while she was praised for using her Spanish in the track, was told her song was a little dirty.
At the Race Chasers Podcast studio...
The queens were surprised to realize that they would be recording their segments all at the same time. Alaska and Willam had a really strong rapport with Crystal and Jasmine as there wasn't much chemistry with Kandy and Lineysha. Lineysha found this strange as she was on the same season as Alaska and even talks about how she created Lil Poundcake alongside her. The interview is pretty much a conversation between the hosts and Jasmine. Kandy leaves the interview a little annoyed with Jasmine and mentions to her that she should learn to share the mic when others are present.
While learning choreography...
Jamal Sims teaches the girls one hell of a routine. During points each girl struggles to get the moves down, though Kandy intimidates the girls the most as she catches on the quickest. She even impresses Jamal enough to earn a solo segment for the song. The other girls talk about how they need to step it up to compete with Kandy. Throughout rehearsals Crystal struggles with the choreography and continues to ask Jamal for easier moves.
The next day before the performance...
As the queens are getting ready Kandy mentions how grateful she is to have made it so far in the competition and excited for the performance ahead. Crystal talks about having stayed up all night practicing the choreography in the mirror and hopes that her reflection was more judgmental than the panel and audience will be. Jasmine talks about having felt nervous going into the performance but feels like all she can do is leave everything on the stage and hope that the judges love her song and her performance. Lineysha mentions that she made some last minute edits to her song to make it more audience friendly and she hopes the risk pays off.
The queens then walked the runway to the category Final Four Eleganza

Crimson:
(To the tune of “Always Remember Us This Way”)
My star was born that night
Shining super bright
When Bradley chose me
To be his female lead
It was my dream to act
I needed Oscar gold
Bradley had faith in me that no one else had
Cuz as I’ve said over

There can be a hundred
People in a room
99 of them don’t give a fuck at all
But you just need one
To believe in you
Critics called me overhyped
Fuck them all, they’re not right
Stripped me of my acting oscar
At least, I got one for best song
You haven’t seen the last of me
I will be back to get what I deserved!
Acting has been a major dream for me for years and
I finally had my big chance!
Cuz as I’ve said over
and over to everyone
There can be a hundred
People in a room
99 of them don’t give a fuck at all
But you just need one
To believe in you.

Aunty:
(To the tune of “Stupid Love”)
This is the one that you’ve been waiting for
Started in Jersey, now I’m in outer space
Everybody’s still wanting some more
I was never in a hurry, but I’m gonna rule the world at this pace
Freak out, freak out, freak out, freak out (look at me)
Get down, get down, get down, get down (look at me)
Freak out, freak out, freak out, freak out
Look at me now
'Cause now I’m on top of the world
Higher, higher (ooh ooh)
Higher, higher (ooh ooh)
Higher, higher
You all look pretty small from up here!
Higher, higher (ooh ooh)
Higher, higher (ooh ooh)
Higher, higher (higher, higher)
I’ve got your forever love, love
I’ve got your forever love, love
(Oh)
Now it's time for me to rise above
I gotta take the whole world, come on every boy and girl
Or could this era last forever now
I’m never gonna give up, I’ll continue to stay on top
Freak out, freak out, freak out, freak out (look at me)
Get down, get down, get down, get down (look at me)
Freak out, freak out, freak out, freak out
Look at me now 'cause I’m sitting on the sun, damnit!

\All the Gagas return to the stage and sing in unison**

Higher, higher (ooh ooh)
Higher, higher (ooh ooh)
Higher, higher
You can call me queen of the universe!
Higher, higher (ooh ooh)
Higher, higher (ooh ooh)
Higher, higher (higher, higher)
I’ve taken over the world, world
I’ve taken over the world, world

And we’re not giving it up that easily!

Category is… Pop Star Red Carpet!

Sasha: “Today I am serving you pink puss bubble gum yum yum fantasy. My pop star is definitely a little more cutesy and I’m happy to be serving something different but still very much Sasha.”
Aunty: Oh hunny, I look like a million bucks! This color is beautiful on me. I’m making a statement that I’m better than all of these bitches on the red carpet!
Bambi: I am feeling my red carpet fantasy! I look absolutely elegant. My mug is drop dead gorgeous, and I’m ready to accept my award!
Lucy: I’m giving the judges a little vintage Nicki Minaj inspired look, my hair is big, my bodies big and I’m here to take all the awards.
Discord: She’s the lady in red tonight, I’m showing an elegant side to my drag and looking snatched, touch all this beauty.
Eva: "Oh, bitch. You are NOT ready. This week I am BURNING THE STAGE!"
Crimson: I am doing a homage to movie stars like Marilyn Monroe. Since I’m doing Movie Star Gaga from A Star is Born, I think it would be fitting that I would do a look perfect for the Oscars
Neon: I'm slowly owning every inch of the runway as I'm presenting my popstar red carpet look. This black transparent bodysuit allows me to show all of these legs and with this beautiful veil diamond-studded with fluffy fringe at the bottom of it, I'm serving black Diva realness.

If I call your name, please step forward.
AUNTY CHAN
DISCORD ADDAMS.
You are safe.
Everyone else, you represent the tops of bottoms of the week.
It’s time for critiques.
Sasha Colby.
Carson: “This wasn’t your week. The lyrics were okay but they didn’t pop as much as others. It was a little too descriptive and light on fun. I think the runway is a little simple too.”
Jesy: “I love the runway. Sure it’s simple but you look so regal!”
Bambi Banks!
Jason: “I think you’d seemed quite nervous tonight. The lyrics were very similar to the original song and I think that was a miscalculation from you.”
Michelle: “I’m really disappointed, Bambi. You’ve been riding a wave of success and this is a sudden drop for you. I hope you can stick around and pull it back up next week. None of the elements were in your favour tonight.”
Lucy Stoole is here!
Jesy: “I thought your singing and dancing was pretty great tonight.”
Michelle: “The lyrics were quite a disappointment though. I thought the drunk angle was a little obvious and we didn’t like the runway at all.”
Eva Young in the house!
Jason: “Your verse was so much fun. I like how you mixed some different elements from the era together and you were very knowledgeable.”
Michelle: “Last week I asked you to bring more fun and you really did that! Your background isn’t in performing but I think you made up for it with the energy you brought. The runway is beaaaauuutiful too.”
Crimson Kitty.
Carson: “You really killed it tonight across the board. The lyrics were hilarious and relevant. The runway was fun and campy. YOu surprised everyone with your stage presence too.”
Michelle: “Everything was brilliant tonight. Keep up this energy and you’ll go far.”
Neon Calypso!
Jesy: “You are such an amazing performer, you were the best dancer on the stage tonight. I liked the lyrics too.”
Michelle: “It was solid. The runway is a little bit more simple than I had hoped for considering our conversations but it’s very glamorous.”
.
.
.
.
.
Okay ladies, I’ve made some decisions.
EVA YOUNG, you’re safe.
NEON CALYPSO, you’re safe.
CRIMSON KITTY, you’ve done it again girl. You are the winner of this week’s challenge. You win a cash tip of $10,000.
BAMBI BANKS-COULEE, LUCY STOOLE, SASHA COLBY…
Only one of you can be safe tonight.
SASHA COLBY, you’re safe.
That means Bambi and Lucy, you are both up for elimination.
Everyone is gagged. Someone’s time is getting cut short.
BAMBI BANKS-COULEE, LUCY STOOLE, prior to tonight you were asked to prepare a lipsync to “Secret Love Song” by Little Mix and Jason Derulo to save yourself from elimination.
Good luck and don’t fuck it up.
.
.
.
.
.
Bambi and Lucy are both very subtle and emotional. Each of them really follows the emotion of the song and does an amazing job. It’s tight.
I’ve reluctantly made my decision.
BAMBI BANKS-COULEE, shantay you stay.
LUCY STOOLE, you really grew in this competition and made us proud. Now, sashay away.
.
.
.
.
.
NEXT TIME, the eliminated queens return to compete for a spot in the competition.

2020.05.04 23:34 Mynameisbrk Music Video idea

If the "All girls are the same" remix got a m/v.
it would start with juice, as a college student, coming home from either a date or a frat party. he comes into his dorm looking sad/pissed off, lil yachty, his roommate, asks what's wrong, and the music begins. He grabs some alcohol and flops down on his bed. During Juice's verse, he sits on his bed and walks around his room, ranting and drinking his alcohol. Towards the end of his verse, Lil Yachty motions for Juice to come to his side of the room as Yachty's verse begins.
During Yachty's verse, Juice is sitting next to Yachty while he has his photos on his phone open. During these lyrics :
"Shoutout Megan, make a nigga cum in two seconds It was all good 'til no one wanted see me with her Janet, shawty head from a different planet Cool as fuck but I can't trust a soul, God damn it Jasmine, probably taking pictures out in Aspen High school, back in high school, she couldn't stand me"
Yachty basically just swipes through pictures on his phone showing Juice all these girls he's been involved with. After that, we have these lyrics:
"These girls are the same (They are) That's why I fuck 'em all the same, my brother Drop my top in the rain (Skrrt) No one feels my pain like my brothers VVS in my veins (Ha) Ice cold blood can't relate to no lover (Ha) Please don't go insane (No) Over these raggedy hoes, my brother (No)"
During these lyrics, Yachty is talking directly to Juice. The only specific thing is he'd point to his wrist when he says "VVS my veins"
Finally during these lyrics:
"Hundred thousand dollars in a rain coat (Oh) Niggas steady hatin', call them Big Joe (Budden) 30 karats hangin' off my pinky toe (Pink) Asking all them questions, why you wanna know? Shawty wanted drugs, so I made it snow Walk around, askin' folks "Where the blow?" (Lil Boat)"
During these lyrics, Yachty is just hyping juice up, he gives him some diamonds and clothes and a hug, just generally tryna help him feel better.
I guess it could end with Juice like deleting the number of whatever girl he was heartbroken over afterward. Idrk how it would end.

2020.05.01 19:50 Ghost-Quartet May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month! Who are your favorite API musicians? (+64 names you should know)

https://twitter.com/rhodalemon/status/1041978198643232768?s=20
May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month here in the USA, a month dedicated to celebrating the lives and histories of people of Asian and Pacific Islander descent. As someone who’s like… one of those, this has always been a very important topic to me ever since I was a kid doing theatre and noticed what a niche market there was for API performers. Asian people have inspired/created so much great art but the people themselves have been underrepresented in history it feels like it’s more common to see a non-Asian artist dressed like an Asian person than it is to see an actual API person in the mainstream music industry.
Interest in Korean/Japanese media has opened doors for API performers outside of those countries but it feels like the doors still aren’t quite open all the way yet, though change is definitely coming! I wanted to throw a spotlight on some acts from history and today who DID manage to break the Western market, and a few acts who are currently trying to and could use the support. In keeping with the spirit of the month (and because a large portion of the world is Asian) I’m choosing to focus mainly on artists who release music in English and have in some way targeted “the West” (whatever that means) though there are probably some exceptions on here.
I've broken this list down into four sections:
  1. Historical Figures & Legends from history you should be aware of.
  2. Mainstream Artists who have penetrated the public consciousness (YMMV).
  3. Indie Darlings who maybe aren't mainstream but are certainly beloved by indie/pop crowds.
  4. Lesser Known artists who are... lesser known

Historical Figures & Legends:

Japanese stars on variety television: In the middle of the 20th century one of the most popular forms of entertainment in America was televised “variety shows,” which hosted skits and musical performances by a host and a constantly rotating variety of guest stars. Given the nature of these shows they were always looking for some kind of gimmick or way to draw audiences in, which provided an opportunity for many “exotic” Asian acts. There would often be jokes at the expense of their race by white hosts but it was a big platform and opportunity. Here are some iconic figures from that era:
  • Miyoshi Umeki: Starting her career as a singer in Japan and ending it as an actress in America, Miyoshi broke barriers as the first (and only) Asian woman to win an Academy Award. She recorded several albums of jazz standards, originated the role of Mei Li in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Flower Drum Song, and was a regular of the variety show circuit. Here’s one of my favorite performances.
  • Pat Suzuki: Another Japanese-American actress/jazz singer, her nomination at the second ever Grammy Awards in 1960 for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her album Broadway '59 makes her (I believe) the first Asian person to be nominated. She released several albums, was a regular of the variety show/club circuit, and originated the classic hit “I Enjoy Being A Girl.”
  • Kyu Sakamoto: A Japanese crooner and actor, he’s notable for singing the song “”Ue o Muite Arukō (Sukiyaki),” a worldwide smash that becomes the first song by an API artist to top Billboard Hot 100 in 1963 and remains the only #1 sung in a non-European language. His career was tragically cut short by a plane accident but his song remains one of the biggest selling songs ever worldwide
  • Pink Lady: A hugely successful pop duo in Japan in the ‘70s/‘80s, Pink Lady scored one Top 40 hit in the US with their song “Kiss In The Dark.” The publicity from this hit netted them their own variety show on US television, which had an infamously troubled production (neither girl spoke English and were forced to learn all the dialogue phonetically, and they were exploited/“otherized” mercilessly) and was a critical/commercial failure. This show was the nail in the coffin of the variety show format.
  • June Angela: Included as a somewhat bright postlude to this depressing section, June Angela was a cast member on cult hit television show The Electric Company, an educational children’s program featuring a multiracial cast singing and performing skits. She went on to have a successful career in theatre and voice acting, and released her own solo CD. Not exactly a global superstar but she was an iconic Asian-American and made an important step for normalizing Asians on television.
Other names to know:
  • The Kim Sisters: A trio of Korean singers (only two of them were sisters) who entertained American soldiers during the Korean war and made their way to America after, they’re the first Korean artists to chart in the US and, in a sense, the first Kpop group. They became Las Vegas mainstays, released music through the ‘60s/‘70s, and are perhaps best remembered for their appearances on the variety circuit..
  • Esther Wong: The so-called “Godmother of Punk,” though not a musician I wanted to mention her because her Los Angeles restaurant “Madame Wong’s” has a storied past as spot for up and coming punk/rock acts. She’s a unique and somewhat contentious figure in music history.
  • Lea Salonga: Lea Salonga has earned international recognition for originating the role of Kim in the blockbuster musical Miss Saigon and providing the singing voices of Disney Princesses Mulan and Jasmine. She’s recorded many albums of original songs and covers which have sold millions of copies worldwide, cementing her as a legend in the Philippines and one of the most iconic Asian musicians of our generation.
  • Yellow Magic Orchestra: This legendary band was composed of three titans of the Japanese music industry who would go on to release several amazing albums that pioneered synthpop, electronic music, sampling, chip tunes, and more. Their massively influential place in music history cannot be understated. Here they are performing their song “Firecracker” the song that spurred the JLo vs. Mariah feud!
  • Towa Tei: A member of Deee-Lite, Towa Tei had a hand in mega-smash “Groove Is In The Heart” and their successful first album World Clique. He ended up leaving the group before their third album and went to be a producer in Japan, where he’s released numerous albums and enjoyed success in a number of genres. He also notably collaborated with Kylie Minogue.
  • Nitin Sawhney: A legendary British-Indian musician, Sawhney has worn a lot of hats over his long career and touched all aspects of the music industry from producing Grammy nominated artists to writing for films/theatre to releasing his own critically acclaimed solo albums. In particular his album Beyond Skin, which fused hip-hop and South Asian sounds, was incredibly influential to the “Asian Underground” movement.
  • Sumi Jo: A Korean opera diva, Sumi Jo’s impeccable, crystal clear lyric coloratura soprano voice (meaning she sings high and fast) has graced stages around the world and made her (to my ears) a legend in the opera world. She’s appeared as a vocalist on dozens of recordings and released quite a few albums herself, notably receiving a Grammy Award for one of her recordings. She also sang the “Simple Song #3” for the film Youth, which ended up nominated for an Oscar at the 2016 awards against Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, and the Weeknd.
  • Tata Young: A Thai pop queen from the ’90s/‘00s who saw big success around Asia and released several English pop albums. “Sexy Naughty Bitchy” in particular should be a popheads anthem.
  • Amerie: Amerie made big waves in the ‘00s music scene with her hip-hop/r&b/go-go sound, singing on a number of successful songs including the iconic hit “One Thing.” She didn’t become the big star she had the potential to be (check out this video on why) but she’ll always be remembered for popularizing a sound that defined mid-‘00s pop and inspired artists like Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez.
  • Utada Hikaru: A titanic success and hugely influential artist in Japan, Utada made a few forays into the US with English language albums but could unfortunately never break the market. However her theme songs for the Kingdom Hearts video games have become cult hits and the latest, “Face My Fears (feat. Skillrex),” was her first ever entry on the Hot 100.
  • Jolin Tsai: The so-called “Queen of C-Pop,” Jolin has such a long and storied career packed with so many highlights I won’t even begin to try to recap it. While she’s never attempted an English crossover she’s been relevant to Western audiences many times so I wanted to mention her because she’s absolutely fabulous. She sings, she dances, she serves looks, she’s just one of the best pop stars out there right now. Check out her song “Womxnly,” a powerful ode to the LGBT+ community.

Mainstream:

  • Bruno Mars (Pop/Funk): Y’all know who he is.
  • Dinah Jane (R&B): A former Fifth Harmony girl, Dinah has been releasing nothing but old school r&b bangers since the group disbanded. “Retrograde” was one of my favorite songs of last year!
  • Far East Movement (Hip-Hop/Electronic): Somewhat of one-hit wonders, their one-hit was the iconic “Like A G6,” a #1 hit that’s probably still stuck in your head to this day. They’ve continued to release music and have started their own record label that hosts acts from this very list.
  • Nicole Scherzinger (Pop): Though she’s had a few solo hits and worn many hats in the industry, Nicole is probably still best known for her work with The Pussycat Dolls, one of the top selling girl groups of all time. Their comeback single “React” is out now!
  • Jhené Aiko (R&B): Although her actual voice is fairly soft, Jhené has solidified herself as a major voice in the r&b scene with her chilled-out forward thinking sound and songs where she takes no-good men to task. She’s notched a few hits already and her latest album Chilombo is shaping up to be her most successful yet.
  • Hayley Kiyoko (Pop): The so-called “lesbian Jesus,” Hayley is already a popheads favorite for her simmering electro pop so I don’t feel the need to exposit on her much. Check out the song she dropped with MAX last night!
  • H.E.R. (R&B): A multi-Grammy winning artist, H.E.R. is currently the critical darling of the r&b scene and has had some hits to match. I don’t know much about her but her resume doesn’t lie.
  • Steve Aoki (Electronic): This world-famous producer has worked with tons of big names in the industry and produced several albums of high energy party EDM.
  • Tokimonsta (Electronic): A Korean-American producer, she’s built a name for herself in the electronic music scene over the years releasing remixes of popular songs and albums featuring electronic compositions and producer driven pop songs. Her 2017 album Lune Rouge (written after she got brain surgery and had to rediscover music) was Grammy nominated.
  • Yuna (Pop): From humble beginnings as a DIY artist in Malaysia to international stardom, Yuna has captivated audiences worldwide with her buttery voice and spirited songwriting. She’s also notable for doing a LOT of collaborations, most notable of which is “Crush (feat. Usher),” which became a genuine hit.
  • ZAYN (Pop): The original breakout star from British boy band sensation One Direction, Zayn topped charts around the world with his debut single “Pillowtalk” and has notched several hits and very long albums since then.

Indie Darlings:

  • Cornelius (Experimental): A Japanese artist who was influential to the “Shibuya Kei” movement, his work has attained penetration outside of Japan thanks to its intricately textured, mind bending qualities, and he’s a well-respected figure amongst music fans. His 1997 album Fantasma in particular made him a legend.
  • Japanese Breakfast (Indie): Shockingly she’s Korean, not Japanese. She’s put out two albums of pretty but heavy experimental indie-pop which have seen critical acclaim. Her sweet music video for the dreamy (and catchy) song “Boyish” is a must-watch.
  • Kero Kero Bonito (Pop/Indie Rock): A London based indie band, KKB made a name for themselves with their hyper-polished, overly cheerful, slightly creepy Jpop influenced rap sound. They’ve gradually transitioned to a more off-kilter indie rock sound, but they’re still good! Here’s one of my favorite songs by them.
  • Little Dragon (Electropop): A Swedish band who have apparently been around since the ‘90s (though their first album came out in ’07), though usually based in a spacey trip-hop sound the album they released earlier this year took them in a poppier direction.
  • Mitski (Indie): One of the freshest voices in indie rock, Mitski is renowned for her ability to tear people’s hearts out with her music.
  • mxmtoon (Indie-Pop): She like, just did an AMA here but if you didn’t know she’s a singer-songwriter who’s gotten a lot of attention and hundreds of millions of streams for her emotionally honest ukulele driven songs. She just released her new EP dawn.
  • NIKI (Pop): After moving to Nashville from Indonesia and independently releasing her EP Zephyrus, NIKI was signed to Asian-American media company 88Rising and has been steadily releasing simmering pop gems since then. She’s gearing up for the release of her debut LP Moonchild, and be sure to listen to her fabulous song “Indigo.”
  • Raveena (R&B): An Indian-American singer with a modern r&b sound, she explores topics of identity, healing, spirituality through her music. She has a very calming, gentle style that’s very streaming-friendly and has earned her a steadily growing fanbase. Her music just keeps getting better, check out Moonstone, which dropped earlier this year.
  • Rina Sawayama (Pop): Though she’s not exactly a chart topper, Rina has been on the lips of the pop community for a few years now and she just released her debut album Sawayama to rave reviews. If you’re reading this list you’ve probably already listened to it!
  • Superorganism (Pop): A music collective known for having each member write/produce their parts separately and having their front woman be a teenage Japanese fan they met at a gig, their quirky sound and unusual videos gave them viral success in the indie scene. They’ve only got one album so far but it was a good one!
  • UDD (Indie/Dance): Although not as beloved here as they are in the Philippines, UDD have gotten buzz from indie publications that has translated to successful tours and festival slots. Their impossibly perfect, danceable indie sound is irresistible, check out their self-titled album which they dropped last year.
  • Yaeji (Pop): You’ve probably heard of Yaeji by this point but if not, she’s a singeproducer who sings in both English and Korean and got a lot of buzz for her refreshingly original (and imaginatively entitled) EP EP2. She just dropped her first mixtape earlier this year.

Lesser Known:

  • Anna Akana (Pop): A famous YouTuber, Anna Akana released her (surprisingly good) debut album last year, a genre hopping project that explored her insecurities and depression. Check out the title track “Intervention.”
  • Aolani (R&B): Hawaiian by way of California, Aolani dropped her fantastic self-titled debut album of hazy old-school r&b back in 2018. “Call Me Up” managed to garner over a million streams on Spotify.
  • Arden Cho (Pop): Though probably best known as an actress on shows like Teen Wolf and Chicago Med, Arden has been posting acoustic covers and releasing original pop songs for years. She’s released a few laid-back bops recently.
  • CHANMINA (Pop-Rap): A fierce Japanese/Korean artist with worldwide aspirations, she’s been slowly building buzz with her pop friendly trilingual rap songs. She has several great albums and released two EPs earlier this year. A personal favorite.
  • FEMM (Pop): A strange Japanese pop duo who brand themselves as living mannequins, they have a unique style and release energetic Jpop with an appropriately “plastic” sound. They’ve bene trying to break both the US and Japan for years and have slowly developed a cult following. “Pow” is a personal favorite of mine.
  • Grrrl Gang (Indie Rock): A punky DIY band from Indonesia with bright hooks and unexpected lyrics, the group got a lot of buzz when their dual singles “Bathroom / Thrills” went viral. Their debut album Here To Stay dropped last year, a collection/remastering of their old singles.
  • Hana Vu (Alternative/Indie): A 20 year old Vietnamese American bedroom pop artist (represent!), Hana has released several critically acclaimed EPs of thought provoking but still danceable music. Check out “Outside” from last year’s Nicole Kidman / Anne Hathaway.
  • Hua Li (Rap/R&B): A Canada based artist who released her dreamy bi-lingual debut album Dynasty last year.
  • Humeysha (Indie): I’m kind of unclear if this is a four person band or just a solo project by the lead singer at this point but whoever they are they’ve released several albums that blend South Asian sounds into mesmerizing tapestries of original sounding music. Check out their song “Nusrat On The Beach.”
  • Jane Zhang (Pop): A Chinese pop princess, she spent a few years attempting a US crossover and got some decent buzz thanks to her appearance at the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and her song “Dust My Shoulders Off” being used in a Hulu commercial. Success wasn’t quite in the cards and she ended up quietly abandoning the project but the resulting album Past Progressive is still worth listen.
  • Jake Zyrus (Pop): Before transitioning Jake made forays into the Western market with power-pop songs like “Pyramid” and a recurring role on Glee, and he continues to tour outside of the Philippines. He’s been finding his sound post-transition and released his first EP Evolution last year.
  • Jay Som (Bedroom-Pop): A self-produced multi-instrumentalist, Jay Som (her stage name) has been the toast of the indie music scene ever since her debut. She’s opened for acts like Paramore and Mitski and released several albums of intelligent indie pop to rave reviews, including last year’s Anak Ko.
  • Jeremy Passion (Soul): A Filipino-American singer songwriter with a silky voice, Jeremy got his start posting covers in 2008 to the then young YouTube and has since released two albums and a slew of singles. Last year he released a collaborative EP with Melissa Polinar (mentioned below) and Gabe Bondoc, featuring a cover of his big hit “Lemonade.”
  • Junoflo (Rap): An up and coming Korean American rapper, he’s dropped a few albums and done a ton of collaborations. His debut single “Fable” was nice.
  • Manila Luzon (Pop): Best known for her appearances on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Manila Luzon arguably invented the trend of contestants releasing novelty singles when she dropped her song “Hot Couture.” With two albums and tons of singles to her name, her music is the definition of a guilty pleasure.
  • Megan Lee (Pop): She got her start doing YouTube covers as a child, spent some time as a Kpop idol, competed on The Voice, starred in a Nickelodeon sitcom, and released her first EP last year. Currently she’s breaking into songwriting.
  • Melissa Polinar (Singer-Songwriter): Another singer-songwriter who got their start on YouTube! Over her lengthy career she’s put out a lot of beautiful, soulfully sung acoustic music, both covers and original songs. Last year she released a collaborative EP with Jeremy Passion (mentioned above) and Gabe Bondoc. Check out her original song “Try”
  • Polartropica (Dream Pop): An LA based band with a shimmery, almost shoe-gaze electropop sound centered around uplifting themes and fantastical imagery.. They released their debut album Dreams Come True earlier this year.
  • REI AMI (Indie/Rap): REI and AMI stand for the two different sides of REI AMI as an artist, and this is represented by her unique dual moody indie/baddie rap fusion style. Her songs are good and she’s been getting a lot of buzz lately (“Snowcone” went viral), so she’s definitely one to watch.
  • Riri (Pop): A Japanese pop star who releases very trendy sounding music, her album Honey in particular was geared towards American audiences, with English heavy songs, a Saweetie feature, and music videos shot in California.
  • Ruby Ibarra (Rap): An up and coming rapper who can spit hard bars in three different languages, she got attention for her debut album Circa91, which explored her Filipino heritage. Check out her song “Us,” a badass collaboration with fellow API rappers Rocky Rivera, Klassy, and Faith Santilla.
  • Shawn Wasabi (Pop): I call Shawn Wasabi’s chill, unapologetically cutesy, chip tunes flavored pop songs “kawaii pop.” Although he doesn’t have an album out yet he was recently signed to Warner Records so one is likely on the way; check out his song “Snack” in the meantime.
  • Sen Morimoto (R&B/Rap): A Chicago based multi-instrumentalist singerapper signed to the 88Rising label, his wavy blend of hip-hop and jazz combined with his laid-back bars has made him an underground indie favorite. Check out his song “People Watching,” which was a mild hit on streaming.
  • Thao & The Get Down Stay Down (Alt-Folk): A quirky San Francisco folk band helmed by frontwoman Thao Nguyen, they have a very jangly, pop friendly sound. Check out their song “Holy Roller” as they gear up to release their fifth album later this year.
  • Satica (R&B): A Cambodian singer from Long Beach, CA who has a small but strong discography of shiny, modern sounding r&b. Check out her dreamy song “Honey Whiskey.”
  • yeule (Art Pop): “victorian classical style cyberscape fourth generation goth cyborg from parallel dimension if AI existed in 1351 black death kawaii nyan nyan radioactive motherboard chernobyl anime” check the AMA that they did
And that’s it! Comment down below your thoughts on any of these artists, and any other API artists that you really enjoy!

2020.04.23 17:21 jayjaysortagay RuPaul's Drag Race S13E3: Rapazonian Airways!

LUCY STOOLE, SHERRY VINE, prior to tonight you were asked to prepare a lipsync to "Surfin' USA" by The Beach Boys.
Good luck... and don't fuck it up.
Sherry is giving campy face and entertaining the judges. Lucy is matching her toe-to-toe and throws in a few fun dance moves. It’s close.
LUCY STOOLE, shantay you stay.
SHERRY VINE, sashay away.
.
.
.
.
.
Fourteen queens…
Fourteen weeks…
One grand prize of $400,000.
Welcome to RuPaul’s (Fantasy) Drag Race S13!
🎵 RuPaul’s Drag Race, start your engines! RuPaul’s Drag Race, may the best queen win! 🎵
.
.
.
.
.
The queens enter the werqroom the next day after the elimination.
Crimson: “Oh Sherry!”
Crimson confessional: I’m feeling pretty bad right now. I was saved from the bottom and our sister Sherry lost the lipsync.
Lucy: “She left a message: “Good luck queens. Have a little sherry to toast your first out sister!”
Crimson: “To Sherry!”
ALL: “To Sherry!”
Jasmine: “You know girls, I think there was some shady judging going on today. I mean, Aunty Chan, you did the worst in the challenge out of all fourteen of us and you escaped the bottom.”
Aunty: “It’s cause I’m a fashion queen, you can’t touch this darling!”
She laughs.
Aunty confessional: I don’t care if these other queens think I should have been sent home. I dropped the ball in the challenge but I turned out the runway better than any of these bitches and that’s that.”
Jasmine is bothered.

Ru: “Ooh girl! She done already done had herses!”
Ru: “Hello, hello, hello girls! I hope you’re all happy to have survived our fiendishly difficult premiere. I could tell you were a special group of queens so I wanted to give you all an extra challenge. For your next maxi challenge, I want you to write, record and perform a new Rusical: Rapazonian Airways. Last week’s winners, Discord Addams and Neon Calypso will be team captains. On the mainstage, you’ll be judged in teams so I want you to help each other with lyric writing. On the runway, category is Banjee Girl Realness! Drag racers, start your engines and may the best queen win!”
.
.
.
.
.
Later in the werqroom, the queens are writing their lyrics. Ru emerges from the top of the stairs.
Ru: “Hi queens! I thought you could use some help so I brought everyone’s favourite female Drag Race judge… Ross Matthews! He’ll give you some advice on your lyrics for tomorrow’s Rusical.”

Ross: “Team Chicago, you are repping the East Coast in this challenge. How is it going?”
Discord: “I think it’s going well. I have a kinda musical background so I’m taking the lead on the music. Bambi is in charge of the story and jokes.”
Bambi: “I’m trying to just pinpoint something straightforward yet funny and crazy for us to do.”
Ross: “My advice would be to crank it up to 11. Don’t hold back on anything.”
T-Rex: “Thanks Ross!”

Ross: “So, Team NYC, you were assigned the West Coast rapgame. Unusual choice but okay! How are you doing with writing?”
Neon: “Great, we’re trying to take a really rap-based approach, giving you attitude and a strong story.”
Sasha: “We want to show we can give cool and sex in the challenge.”
Jasmine: “This is all really new to me so I’m letting the others take the lead. I’m classically trained as a singer but I don’t write and I know nothing about rap. I trust that going for a cunty attitude is the best decision.”
Ross: “Interesting, that’s a really different approach than the other team. Good luck!”
.
.
.
.
.
Ru: “Welcome to the mainstage of RuuuuuuuuuPaul’s Drag Race Season 13. Tonight we are joined by the delightful Ross Matthews, the incredible Michelle Visage and guest judges Snoop Dogg and Lil’ Kim! Our queens were challenged with creating a Rusical in homage to the West Coast v East Coast rapgame. And on the runway, category is Banjee Girl Realness!”
.
.
.
.
.
.
Now presenting the world premiere of our (un)original Rusical: Rapazonian Airways! First up, Team NYC is gonna show us their West Coast stylings!

CHOIR
West Coast, raise your hands!

[2PAC (Crimson)] (Spoken)
Now lemme introduce you to the West Coast
Wind, beaches and more to come
Hey, Suge, here we go!

[SUGE (Jasmine)]
(Rap)
Once upon a time there was a city called Compton
I started my own label had no other option
Death Row Records I stole DOC
And Dr.Dre away from Mr. Eazy-E
(Spoken)
Now no one can even compare.
Especially that loser Sean Combs, the leader of the little kids that think that they're rappers.
Now let us show em how it's really done
And if they think it’s all fun and games, well Def Jam let’s all have some fun.

[EAZY E (Pixie)]
Ayo! It's Eazy-E , so take it easy here in the West Coast.
N.W.A here with me, Doctor Dre and Ice Cube...

[ICE CUBE (Neon)]
Not only on the street, you can find me on tv
Amerikkka's most wanted, Ice C-U-B-E
On the screen, I know I'm your favorite
East Coast found sh-sh-sh-shooketh

[DR DRE (Xunami)]
I was part of Death Row Records
Now I’m making millions of my headphones.
This beef it doesn't matter no more
because this bitch has got all the dough.
This beef doesn't have much to do with me
but I am still making all my money.

[EAZY E (Pixie)]
Forget them, cuz it's all about me.
My rap game is ahead of all these others who look like they just started rapping,
But even after Death Row bitches can't appreciate me,
just East Coast failures and marijuana addicts.

[ICE CUBE (Neon)]
(Shouting) Now hold on a minute!
Who stole my mothafuckin’ lip gloss?
I'm outta these bitches.

[SNOOP (Sasha)]
Dre started me out but now you gotta see
I'm the number one Stoner D-O-Double-G
Marijuana weed tree or pot
Any way you call it better drop it like it's hot.

[DR DRE (Xunami)]
(High)
Yo Snoop Dogg!
They got lots of weed in Jamaica.

[SNOOP (Sasha)]
(Reggae Beat)
I'm off to Jamaica, gurl I’m Snoop Lion now
Made a documentary on Netflix
So high and so far from the hood I'm flyin now
I guess it's easy being green.

[2PAC (Crimson)]
ALL EYEZ ON ME!
I went from rags to riches, to worldwide fame;
I bested all these other bitches when I entered the game;
The Notorious BIG held much jealousy
(Whispers) (He tried to kill me so I fucked his wife!)
But he and these other East Coast losers ain’t got shit on me!
A poet, an actor, and most importantly a rapper.
I tragically left this world but became a martyr!

TEAM NYC
The greatest story ever told
and it's finished yeah we're toast
We're all old men or dead now
We're the West Coast.

[SUGE (Jasmine)]
(Still high)
WEEEEEEEST COOOOAAAAST!


We’re back with the second act. Team Chicago is gonna show us what the East Coast can do!


TEAM EAST COAST (Chicago)

[P-Diddy (Discord)]
If you wanna make sales
You gotta do what Daddy says.

[Team Chicago]
The year is 1997
The rap game is alive and true
Only one man can top the mountain
It’s a bloodshed I’m telling you
Biggie vs Nas it’s electric
And The Wu Tang Clan are here too

[Biggie (Bambi)]
(Scream)
He starts dramatically flopping round the stage dying.

[Ghostface (Lucy)]
Miss Biggie...Miss Biggie \cough cough**

[Method Man (Aunty Chan)]
Oh ma fockin’ gawd, he fockin dead!

[Nas (T-Rex)]
He used to take me in my back door
He'd blindfold me and say unspeakable things
TUPAC ISN’T DEAD, BITCH
And I loved it, I loved it!
Nas starts grinding the thin air above Biggie's head.
Ohhhhhhh, I looooooooved iiiiiit!

[Biggie (Bambi)]
Biggie gasps and raises his head off the floor slightly.
Get those nuts away from my face.

[RZA (Imp)]
Don't kiss the enemy
Or he'll shoot you away,
In a moment you'll never forget

[GZA (Eva)]
Nothing you felt is,
Like his manly embrace
As he guides you to his cock… (wink)

GZA and RZA start making out on Biggie’s corpse, they each discard clothing.

[Biggie (Bambi)]
Really Queen?

[Puff Daddy (Discord)]
Are y’all just gonna ignore the fact Biggie is dead?

[Nas (TRex)]
Biggies Dead? (hysterical crying)

[Ghostface Killah (Lucy)]
Who done it, was it you?
He points at Method Man.

[Method Man (Aunty Chan)]
Shut the fuck up we all know it was them!
He points at GZA and RZA still embracing making out.

[GZA (Imp) & RZA (Eva)]
Uh... uh... not guilty!
They both scramble to get redressed now wearing odd shoes, Imp’s lost her wig and Eva has an eyelash on her cheek.

[Biggie (Bambi)]
(Gasping still not quite dead)
Well it was fuckin’ one of yas.

[Nas (TRex)]
You bitch! (Slap)

[Ghostface (Lucy)]
Ohhhhh! (Slap)

[Method Man (Aunty)]
Why I oughta! (Slap)

[RZA (Imp)]
Yoooou! (Slap)

[GZA (Eva)]
Augh! (Slap)

[Puff Daddy (Discord)]
And now the the search for the next big star is on!
Puff Daddy-ger productions
Is proud to present the vocal stylings of Miss Wu-Tang Clan.

[Ghostface (Lucy)]
Hi everybody!

[Method Man (Aunty)]
I'm here to tell you to put down your... guns!

[RZA (Imp) & GZA (Eva)]
Weeeeee dubba doo dubba doo dubba doo dubba doo twee doo doo

(Ghostface (Lucy)]
Put down your guns, put down your gunny guns!

[Method Man (Aunty)]
Put down your, put down your, put down your, put down your gun... please!

[GZA (Eva)]
Put it down now

[RZA (Imp)]
He puts the toy gun against GZA’s butt and GZA shrieks.
Put it up yours!

[Puff Daddy (Discord)]
Wasn't that just great ladies and gentlemen?
I had no idea you were so into...that.

[Nas (TRex)]
Oooooh, gurl! Can I have a shot?

[Puff Daddy (Discord)]
Well must I tell you you’re not a star
I ain’t your drag daddy-ger.

[Nas (TRex)]
(Nas looks off in a dramatic way)
I want a chance to be the star
You don’t know what I’ve done to get this far.

[Team Chicago including B.I.G]
Shut up Nas!
The music changes and the final lines are spoken word.

[Puff Daddy (Discord)]
So who has what it takes to be the star
Who can lead Rap into the 21st Century...
Me! Their Daddy-ger!

[B.I.G (Bambi)]
Stop trying to make Daddy-ger happen. It’s not gonna happen. Peace I’m out.
Biggie gasps a final time, clutches his heart and collapses.
Team Chicago all do jazz hands.
Fin.

Runway category is… Banjee Girl Realness!

T-Rex: “I’m here showing off with a real banjee girl look, like a typical girl who likes big dick and thinks she’s sooooo fancy”
Lucy: “At heart I am a banjee bitch so I’m giving a little classy banjee girl, she married a rich sugar daddy and he’s funding her lifestyle, got my yarn braids looking tight and I’m giving the judges everything after my fail last week.
Aunty:"Tonight I am serving straight banjee girl realness. I got my big hoops and my cheez-its clutch on my side. I have camo, but I'm taking it to the next level with this cute flower pattern on top.
Imp:“Tonight on the runway, I’m strutting in this beautiful suit that has a beautiful patterned look to it and is just stunning overall. I wanna give the kids what they want and they’re received it. I’m living for my look and I just hope the judges are living as well.”
Eva: "She is a tatted up bitch, and she's ready for the streets. But watch out, because she'll fight a hoe!" She swings a few punches.
Discord: “I’m giving the judges something very left field from the usual Discord style, a little Madonna Erotica, a little boujee dominatrix.”
Bambi:"I am SERVING it to the judges tonight. I look like I am fresh out of a 2000's rap video and I am here to slay. I look great in this black and white pattern. I got my fishnets on, and my bra really says it all."
Xunami: “This is my banjee look - I feel like a goddess right now!”
Sasha: “My banjee girl is a motorcycle chick meets a girl at the club round the way. She may be walking the streets of Harlem but you can’t tell her she’s not on a runway.”
Pixie: “Pixie is here serving you color blocking banjee girl. Or you know serving mismatching socks realness. I'm definitely the most colorful in the runway, so you better rain-bow down to me!”
Crimson: “I’m feeling super sexy in this outfit. I think I’m unique in my 50s meets 90s street look.”
Jasmine: “I’m feeling VERY Banjee in my skin tight pleather with diamonds encrusted! Bitch I feel like I’m walking down Rodeo drive. Than BAM! A reveal when I take off the pink peplum. Than BAM. Another reveal when I take off the pleather!”
Neon: “I'm giving you full Banjie realness tonight. Bitch is from Brooklyn so you can't tell me I'm not doing it right. I'm taking a well deserved puff while rocking these denim shorts. Walking down the runway as overconfident as I am, I'm serving full hood.”.
.
.
.
.
Ru: “Girls, you all did a great job today but one team juuuuuuust edged out the competition with their humour and creativity. The winning team is… TEAM CHICAGO. Congratulations, ladies. Tonight you’re all safe but two of you stood out for all the right reasons. DISCORD ADDAMS… BAMBI-BANKS COULEE… Condragulations you are both the winners of this challenge. You each win a cash prize of $10,000. You may all step to the back of the stage.”
Ru: “Team NYC… you are all eligible for elimination tonight. Let’s get to some critiques.”
Ru: “Xunami Muse…”
Ross: “I love this runway on you tonight. It’s simple but it really tells us a lot about you. It was a different story in the challenge though. Your lyrics were weak.”
Snoop: “Uh… I wasn’t so sure about you in the challenge, girl. I felt you were kinda flat. Felt like you didn’t know about Dre. The Beats thing felt a bit like Wikipedia shit.”
Ru: “Sasha Colby!”
Michelle: “In the challenge tonight, I thought you were one of the best. Your lyrics were very professional and your performance had a lot of attitude. You turned it around from last week.”
Kim: “I just love your stage presence. I think you would be in with a shot at the win if you had been in the winning team.”
Ru: “Next up is Pixie Aventura.”
Michelle: “For me your challenge performance was very in the middle of the pack tonight. I didn’t think your lyrics or performance stood out. However, I could see you were a good contributor in the team which bodes well for your future here.”
Ross: “On the runway tonight, there was a bit of disagreement amongst the judges. I think the outfit itself is nice but it’s not a great interpretation of the category and it looks a little cheap. Going forward, I’m hoping you will elevate your runways.”
Ru: “Meow, it’s Crimson Kitty.”
Kim: “Personally as a woman, I think what you’re doing is super empowering and unique so props to you for that. I liked your outfit in theory, the idea of mashing up eras was a good one but I don’t think the execution was great.”
Ross: “I think in the challenge, your lyrics were a huge improvement from week one but I don’t think it had as much flavour as Sasha’s contributions.”
Ru: “Next to Jasmine Rice Labeija.”
Ross: “Now when I did my walkround in the werqroom, I felt you were a little overwhelmed and out of your comfort zone in this challenge. That came through in the challenge too. You seemed nervous.”
Snoop: “You look hot though. I’m liking this outfit on you.”
Ru: “Last up is Neon Calypso.”
Ross: “I think what came through most with you is you are a great team leader. I don’t think your performance was as good as last week but you were supportive and engaged which I loved.”
Michelle: “Again though, Neon. The outfit is very simple. When we see our first design challenge of the season, I’ll be keeping an eye out to see what you can create.”
.
.
.
.
.
Ru: “Ladies, before I make my decision tonight I want to ask you one question: whho should go home tonight and why?”
Xunami: “I think Jasmine should go home, only because she was the least helpful in the challenge.”
Sasha: “As much as she’s a talented bitch, the one who should go home is Jasmine. She got cocky and only wrote one line. Pixie and I had to write her other lines. It’s only fair that she goes.”
Pixie: “I have to agree with my sisters. Jasmine contributed the least.”
Crimson: “I agree. Jasmine was the weak link this week.”
Jasmine: “The queen I think should go home tonight is not on the stage. Aunty Chan really flopped last week’s challenge worse than anyone this week and I think she shouldn’t have continued in the competition.
Neon: “Although I don’t think I performed the worst, as team captain I take responsibility for my team failing. I have to nominate myself.”
Ru: “Thank you ladies, I will take that into account.”
.
.
.
.
.
Ru: “Okay, I’ve made some decisions.”
SASHA COLBY, excellent work tonight. You are safe.
NEON CALYPSO, although your team didn’t win, I think you are underselling your performance tonight. Have a little more self confidence. You are safe.
XUNAMI MUSE… PIXIE AVENTURA… CRIMSON KITTY... JASMINE RICE LABEIJA… only two of you can be safe tonight.
PIXIE AVENTURA, your high notes were a little flat but your potential to make a dollar is through the roof. You’re safe.
CRIMSON KITTY, you weren’t the Queen of NYC tonight but your improvement from last week was something special. You’re safe.
XUNAMI MUSE… JASMINE RICE LABEIJA… Unfortunately my dears, you are up for elimination. Prior to tonight I asked you to prepare a lipsync performance to “Lady Marmalade” by Christina Aguilera, P!nk, Mya and our guest judge, Lil Kim.
Good luck… and don’t fuck it up.

From the streets of NJ, now running the Big Apple.

-cut to a distorted version of Jasmine’s voice recreating one of her IG call out videos over the song track-
This rotted ass bitch tried to come for me the other day-
-cut back to normal-
I can be a good girl too, do my hair, act proper & look cute boo
Sometimes a girl just needs to feel a bit unwound!

Ru: “Runway category is… Night of 1000 J-Los!”
🎵 Snapshot! 🎵
Sherry Vine: “I love my look. It fits my aesthetic. I think the judges will appreciate the detail in my look.”
Pixie Aventura: “I chose to recreate the 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards look because it is the Holy Grail of Jennifer Lopez looks. I’m feeling gorgeous, I’m feeling all this tulle! Hopefully I’ll get a “Second Act” in this competition! laughs I like a good pun, okay?”
Neon Calypso: “I. Own. Everything. This 2011 J-Lo Golden globes look fits me like a glove and I'm showing off the best asset: my curves. Hair slicked back, this transparent shawl is accentuating my feminine shoulders. Diamond on the purse, diamond on the bracelet and why not? Diamond on the earrings too.”
Sasha Colby: “Tonight on the runway I am serving you J-Lo at the Oscars realness. My titties look like two disco balls and I am hustling the house down. Now where’s A-Rod?”
Crimson Kitty: “This week I’m serving JLo at the Met Gala. Nothing’s more New York than an iconic queen serving looks at the MET! winky face
Jasmine Rice LaBeija: "I feel amazing in this recreation! I love flowy fabrics and anything that gives me an excuse to show off my couch filling winks at camera so I am just serving face and turning so the judges can see this outfit MOVE."
Xunami Muse: “I’m wearing the dress J-Lo wore to the Oscars afterparty to show that i can really serve glamour. I know I am feeling my oats, yes gawd! I know I am rocking the outfit just like she did.”
🎵 Snapshot! 🎵

Ru: “Ladies, tonight no one is safe. Let’s get to your critiques.”
Ru: “First up, Sherry Vine.”
J-Lo: “I really don’t know what happened to you tonight, baby girl. You seem so nice but I heard you were backstage eating hot dogs during the challenge? And then this runway is not my favourite.”
Michelle: “J-Lo looked amazing in this look but it’s far too simple for the Drag Race stage. Look around at your competition, this is the level you need to be at if you make it to next week.”
Ru: “Next up is Pixie Aventura”.
Michelle: “On the runway tonight, you were my favourite. Absolutely stunning.”
J-Lo: “I thought your lyrics were funny. I think you weren’t the best singer on the stage but you made up for that with every other aspect which was perfect.”
Ru: “It’s Neon Calypso!”
Carson: “I think in the challenge, you were really amazing. You had the most original flow and you blew away the competition.”
Michelle: “Neon. You were amazing in the challenge but this runway is very simple. I hope you’re gonna step it up next week on the runway. I’ll be watching.”
Ru: “Let’s go next to Sasha Colby.”
Carson: “I was really unsure about your verse tonight. I think you went for something original and that was great but it didn’t quite fit together.”
J-Lo: “I disagree completely, I think you really killed the challenge. Maybe the content of your verse was just divisive.”
Ru: “Next it’s Crimson Kitty.”
Carson: “I think you’re a really interesting personality but this wasn’t your week. Your verse was a bit uncertain compared to the other queens and you didn’t stand out on the runway.”
J-Lo: “I thought your verse was fun but other girls outclassed you tonight.”
Ru: “Let’s take it to Jasmine Rice LaBeija.”
Michelle: “I was surprised you took a more campy take tonight because I hear you’re a classically trained singer. I thought you really pulled it off though.”
Carson: “I think you were consistently near the top of the pack tonight.”
Ru: “Last but not least, Xunami Muse.”
J-Lo: “As soon as you stepped on stage, you were giving me attitude. Your verse was a little plain compared to the others but you sold it with your performance.”
Michelle: “I love this runway. I think it was smart to go for something a little more minimalist after going huge in the challenge and the detailing on your dress is exquisite.”
. . . . .

Ru: “Okay girls, I’m ready to make some decisions.”
XUNAMI MUSE, you are safe.
JASMINE RICE LABEIJA, NEON CALYPSO and PIXIE AVENTURA…
You all slayed the challenge.
JASMINE RICE LABEIJA… you are safe.
That means Neon and Pixie, you are the Top 2 of the week. You will be lipsyncing for the challenge win and a cash tip of $10,000. In addition, you will choose which of the bottom queens to save from the Lip Sync For Your Life which will be against the bottom queen from the other premiere.
To the bottom queens…
SASHA COLBY, there was a division amongst the judges on how you did in the challenge. It was a very tough decision on how to place you tonight. You are safe.
That means CRIMSON KITTY and SHERRY VINE, you are the bottom 2 of the week. One of you will be saved by the winner and the other will lipsync for their life next week.
NEON CALPYSO… PIXIE AVENTURA… Prior to tonight, you were asked to prepare a lipsync performance to Jennifer Lopez’ song “Jenny From The Block” in order to win a cash tip and the power to save one of the bottom queens from the lipsync.
Good luck… and don’t fuck it up.

2020.04.15 15:50 KeezyLDN A history of the Peckham Boys - from the Giggs era to Zone 2/Hitsquad (Part 1)

Part 1 of the history of Peckham in south London. From the early Peckham Boys era to Zone 2.
Peckham is one of the most legendary ends in London, and probably had the biggest impact on UK Rap music from the 2000s onwards. The history of the Peckham Boys goes back decades, and everything posted here barely scratches the surface of their history.


_________________________________


Context

The Peckham Boys gang originated in the estates of Peckham (SE15), in the borough of Southwark.
A large area of Peckham - between the town centre and Burgess Park - is dominated by council estates (public housing complexes). The main cluster is called the 'Five Estates' and consists of the North Peckham Estate, Gloucester Grove Estate, Willowbrook Estate, Camden Estate and Sumner Estate:
Nearby are the Goldsmith Estate, Bells Gardens Estate (Yellow Brick), Acorn Estate, Friary Estate, Ledbury Estate, Southampton Way Estate and several others. The Peckham 'frontline' is the area around Peckham High Street, including local landmarks like Peckham Pulse and the Crackerjack store.
The estates of Peckham were notorious and suffered underinvestment, deprivation, unemployment and crime. The area was termed 'Vietnam' due to the level of violence there, which is the origin of the hood nickname 'Pecknarm' (Peckham + Vietnam).

1990s

Evolution of the Peckham Boys
Originally, several of the major Peckham estates had their own individual sets: the Peckham Grove Boys, the North Peckham Boys, the Gloucester Boys, the Yellow Brick Massive, the Outlaws and the Acorn Boys. The earliest sets date back to the 1970s, and are the origins of the Peckham Boys gang.
By the 1990s those sets had evolved, and the two main sets in Peckham were the Firehouse Crew and the Younger Peckham Boys - also known as Pecky Man Soldiers. Other groups of Peckham included the yardie sets the Sunrise Crew and the Spanglers. Collectively these sets were known as the 'Peckham Boys' . There was sometimes friction between the Peckham sets but it was never deep, and they were united whenever opposition tried to slide on Peckham territory.
Alliances and rivalries
Peckham's main war was with the Ghetto Boys, a gang headquartered in New Cross and controlling Lewisham borough. Their other major conflict was with Brixton. The decades-long Peckham v Ghetto and Peckham v Brixton conflicts were some of the longest and bloodiest gang wars that London has seen. Peckham's main allies were Dulwich (Circle Crew) and Walworth (Wooly Road), and they often used to roll as one.
Legendary members
YPB/PMS members included the boss Mad X, Tipsy, Timer, Splash, Joker, Titch, Timer, Rampage, Rage, Temps, Twitch and others. Firehouse Crew members included Rhymer, Mixer, Major, Beans, Breaker, Player, Skipper, Fame and many others. Peckham yardies included the likes of Kirk, Bigga and a bag of others. The Peckham-Circle linkup included names like Mad Danny and Big Lee, legends in both Peckham and Dulwich. It goes without saying that there's many more names from that era of Peckham legends.

Early 2000s

In the early 2000s the Peckham Boys had consolidated as a single gang and its sets were structured by age. The most active sets by now were:
Prominent PB members included Knuckles, Raver, X-Fighter, Crimer, Rocker, Giggler, Breaker, Glamour and many others. Prominent YPB members included Killa Ki, Diamond, Timmy, Tiny Ryder, Young Snap, Motion, Taz and many others. Below are very brief examples of what went down in Peckham during this period.

Peckham nightclub shootings
Peckham had been notorious for gang violence for decades, and this reputation continued into 2000s. National headlines were made in July 2000 when up to 9 people were shot outside the Chicago's nightclub on Peckham High Street:
Six months later, a man was shot dead in a double shooting outside the same nightclub:
The nightclub was shut down soon afterwards. Giggs refers to this nightclub in the 2007 track Greaziest Freestyle: "Don't think I'm coming here to rave if you see me 'round the back, big strap inside Chicagos"

Death of Damilola Taylor
Peckham made international headlines in November 2000 with the murder of Damilola Taylor, a 10-year old boy that lived on the North Peckham Estate. He was stabbed to death by two 16-year old brothers & members of the Untouchables, a small but old set within Peckham:
Nine days before Damilola's murder, a 17-year old guy was also stabbed to death on the North Peckham Estate:
The schoolboy murder, plus the general level of gang activity in the area, put a hard media focus on the amount of senseless violence in Peckham:

2003 Peckham Civil War
Even though the Peckham Boys and Ghetto Boys were involved in a multi-generational war, there were some instances of Peckham and Ghetto members that fw each other. The most prominent example at that time was Spender from Peckham (a younger brother of Giggler) and Younger Kraver from Ghetto (a younger brother of Kraver) - they used to roll together and make money. That type of association was rare though, as the two gangs remained at war with each other.
In 2003 the first 'civil war' in Peckham kicked off because the Peckham Boys were divided over the presence of Mender. Mender was from Lewisham sides but defected from the Ghetto Boys and started rolling with Peckham. Some YPB members trusted him and some didn't - claiming that he was still rolling with the Ghetto Boys and even robbed a Peckham member. This caused tension between Peckham members, including stabbings. In September 2003, Mender was stabbed to death while posted outside the Old Kent Road McDonald's by some YPB members:

Death of Tipsy
Peckham legend Tipsy was released from prison after doing 3 years of a 10 year sentence for firearms offences. Soon afterwards in July 2004 he was rammed off his motorcycle by gunmen on Camberwell High Street, who then stood over him and gave him five headshots. His murder remains unsolved to this day:

Shootout in the financial district
In October 2004 the Urban Music Awards was held at the Barbican Centre. Peckham Boys and Ghetto Boys members were local and had a shootout outside the venue, in which 18 shots were fired. This was the first ever shootout within London's 'Square Mile' financial district, one of the world's financial centres:

2005

The Peckham Boys were also known as Black Gang due to the gang's association with the colour black. From the mid-2000s, the main Peckham sets also began going by other aliases:

Giggs release from prison & first SN1 mixtape
In early 2005, SN1 member Giggler - now shortened to Giggs - was released from Brixton Prison after serving a couple years for firearm possession. He had dabbled in music in the past, but his jailtime made him determined to take music seriously. Not long afterwards, SN1 released their first project: the 'Bloody Raw' mixtape.
At this time Giggs took part in an SN1 block freestyle in Peckham for the Rap DVD. During the clip Giggs raps verses from the 'Bloody Raw' mixtape. The footage is famous for handguns being shown, and for Giggs not flinching when a handgun is fired:
In this era Giggs also released tracks on other people's mixtapes, a couple examples:
At a time when Grime was the dominant sound of music on the streets, Giggs's style was very different for its time.

Death of Ruthless
In August 2005, four YPB members aged between 14 and 16 - Bertz, Tiny Ryder, Timmy and Diamond - stormed a christening on the Wood Dene Estate in order to rob the attendees (and pay back a debt to Big Larry, a Peckham older). During the robbery Bertz shot his gun in the air, and a ricochet bullet hit a woman in the head killing her:
A couple of weeks later, Bertz ambushed Ruthless (an 18-year old high ranking female in Peckham) and stabbed her to death for disrespecting him. Bertz was given a 30-year prison sentence for the two murders. Ryder, Timmy and Diamond were given indeterminate manslaughter sentences for the christening incident, and were deported after their sentences:
Ruthless was a loved person in Peckham. In this 2006 cameraphone footage you can see young Peckham members pay their respects at her grave. In early 2008, Giggs released the 'Ruthless Freestyle' titled in her honour (but more on that track later).

2006

SN1 drop 'The Beginning' mixtape
In early 2006, Giggs and other SN1 members dropped the 'SN1: The Beginning' mixtape. This is the first mixtape in which production was handled by their in-house production team at Unit 10 Studios. Their dark sound would go on to have a large impact on the future of UK Rap. A few classics:
Another classic SN1/Unit 10 track from the same period:

Hot September for Ghetto v Peckham
In September 2006, a group of up to 40 Shoot Instant (YPB) members went on a rideout to the Woodpecker Estate in New Cross - the main Ghetto Boys block. A brother of Ghetto members Smiley and Kraver ended up getting shot and stabbed to death. Another man was attacked in nearby Deptford but survived:
That murder on Woodpecker remains unsolved, as did five other murders on the Woodpecker Estate within the past 5 years at the time (5 unsolved murders in 5 years on a single block - when people say the 2000s in London was hot, they aren't lying):

Ghetto v Peckham war causes Peckham schools to be evacuated
Later in September 2006, police received 'specific intelligence' that the Ghetto Boys would carry out drive-by shootings at Peckham schools at the end of the school day (in order to smoke YPB members as they left). Police decided to immediately evacuate Peckham Academy and Harris Girls Academy in the middle of the school day, before the plot could be carried out. The schools reopened in the following week:

Giggs drops the 'Hollow Grind' mixtape
In 2006, Giggs and brother Joe Grind dropped the 'Hollow Grind' mixtape. This is the first of four collaborative mixtapes that Giggs dropped between 2006 and 2009. The mixtape includes several classics:
SN1 and OTB (Wooly Road) collaborated on the track 'Up In The Shoobz', and released a music video for the song. The video was shown on Channel U (a channel for underground music videos) but was blocked from the mainstream channels like MTV Base:
By this time, Giggs and the SN1 movement had a buzz in the streets of London. Giggs was trying to make moves in the music industry but he was blackballed by radio and television (thanks to the police) because of his gang ties/content. He refused to water-down his content in order to blow. Giggs released his frustration on Hollow Grind in 'Fuck Da Industry':

Peckham Boys acknowledged by Time Out Magazine
In November 2006, Time Out magazine named the Peckham Boys as one of the 100 most influential people or organisations in London: Time Out Magazine - London's 100 top movers and shakers 2006
Time Out magazine is a major international publication, with a circulation of millions, so their inclusion of the Peckham Boys was a big deal. A good demonstration of how 'big' the Peckham Boys were, even in mainstream society.

2007

At this point, prominent members of Shoot Instant (YPB) included Snap Capone, Killa Ki, Nuttie, Butch, Blacks, Billy Da Kid, Taz, Prover, Tem, Capo, Ross etc.
Prominent members of PYG (YYPB) included Shocks, Tiny Boost, Young Spend, Young Lap, Jim Jones, Young Killa, Young Butch etc.
PYG members looked up to SI, and both sets looked up to the SN1 bosses. From 2007 onwards, SI and PYG started to become very active in music.

Deaths of Javarie Crighton and Michael Dosunmu
In February 2007, 21-year old Javarie Crighton and 15-year old Michael Dosunmu were murdered in internal Peckham dispute over money. Members of a group that had successfully pulled off bank robberies were arguing about the split of the proceeds. Michael Dosunmu was shot dead in his bed in a case of mistaken identity, the gunmen had meant to get his older brother (who they believe didn't give them their fair share):

Giggs drops the 'Hollowman Meetz Blade' mixtape
In early 2007, Giggs dropped the 'Hollowman Meetz Blade' mixtape in collaboration with Blade Brown. This mixtape continued to advance Giggs' buzz in the streets, and included several classic UK gang/rap tracks. The mixtape is considered a classic in the UK scene:
Sidebar: 'Hollow Meetz Blade' and 'Sink A Boat' were referenced by 67 in their 2016 track 'Lets Lurk': "Like Hollow Meetz Blade, manaman got guns that'll sink down a boat".

Peckham boss Raver jailed
In July 2007, Raver (SN1) was caught in possession of a Mac-10 submachine gun, 3 handguns, 2 silencers, 379 rounds of ammunition and thousands of pounds worth of drugs. Raver was a Peckham boss and very close to Giggs. Raver is referred to as "Carlton" in Giggs' lyrics. He received a minimum 10-year sentence:

Young Spend jailed for shooting
In October 2007, 14-year old member Young Spend (PYG) shot a man in Peckham for disrespecting him. He was convicted of attempted murder the following year and jailed on an indeterminate sentence:
Young Spend appeared in one track in 2007 before being arrested:

New Cross shootout changes UK legal history
In October 2007 there was a shootout widely reported involve Ghetto Boys and Peckham Boys members. During the shootout, a Polish nurse was hit by a stray bullet and died:
The police caught Ghetto member Toner - one participant in the shootout - but they didn't catch the person who actually fired the fatal shot. Toner did not snitch on the person he was having a shootout with. The Supreme Court of decided to convict Toner of murder as if he fired the fatal shot, even though he didn't. In English law, this landmark ruling is known as Regina v Armel Gnango
At the same time in SE London, the Woolwich Boys shot dead a man in his car - because he answered "Peckham" when they asked him where he's from:
In Greenwich Borough, Woolwich were beefing heavily with Thamesmead (allies of Peckham).

Shoot Instant & PYG drop the 'Blackgang Broadway Vol.1' mixtape
In 2007, Shoot Instant and their youngers PYG dropped their first project together: the 'Blackgang Broadway Vol.1' mixtape. With SN1 (Peckham bosses) making noise in the music game, this is the first time that their youngins made their mark. Two tracks from the mixtape:

Giggs drops the 'Ard Bodied' mixtape
In December 2007, Giggs (SN1) dropped the 'Ard Bodied' mixtape in collaboration with Dubz. The mixtape included 'Talking The Hardest' and 'Pain is the Essence', which are considered all-time UK anthems, alongside multiple hood classics. A selection of classic Ard Bodied tracks:
Ard Bodied is generally considered the most influential mixtape to drop in the UK scene. It was the first time that UK 'gang' rap (Road Rap) broke into the mainstream, and marked the shift in general popularity from Grime to UK Rap:
It's hard to underestimate the impact Ard Bodied had on the culture. It had youngins in every block wanting to rap that gang shit and rep their block through music. From this point, UK 'gang' rap (Road Rap) - the foundation of the UK Drill scene - started to take off in London.

2008

In 2008 the Shoot Instant set split into two branches:
S.I. and OPB moved as two different sets within the Peckham Boys, but they were all still brothers.

End of the Peckham Boys v Ghetto Boys war
For a few years the Ghetto Boys had undergone major internal divisions, including the murder of leader Sparkz in 2006 by another Ghetto member. These events caused a big shift in the street politics of South London, with Lewisham dividing and fighting amongst itself.
By 2008 the decades-long beef between the Peckham Boys and Ghetto Boys was over. The end of the beef was publicly 'announced' by Giggs when he dropped the 'Ruthless Freestyle' in early 2008:
That was a major moment in South London street history, with maybe the bloodiest gang war London has seen officially coming to a close. From that moment, it became safe to play Giggs's music publicly in Lewisham 😂

Giggs drops the 'Best of Giggs 2' compilation mixtape
In early 2008, Giggs released the 'Best of Giggs 2' mixtape. The mixtape is a compilation of classic Giggs verses from 2005-2007, alongside some new releases. The last track is one of Giggs' best freestyles:

Giggs is banned by police from Lil Wayne concert
The Metropolitan Police were determined to stop Giggs career in music. Despite being the hottest artist in the streets, venues weren't allowed to book him, and television & radio were pressured not to play his music.
In early 2008, Lil Wayne was arguably the hottest rapper in the world, and in March he had a headline concert in London. Giggs was booked as the opening act for Lil Wayne, and the sold-out crowd were there to see Giggs as much as they were to see Wayne. At the last minute, the police blocked Giggs from performing. The crowd was so angry that they started moving unruly. Lil Wayne was hit with a bottle and stormed off stage, cancelling the show. This footage making shockwaves around the rap world:
Giggs then addressed these incidents by releasing the freestyle 'Banned from Lil Wayne':

SI, OPB and PYG drop the 'Blackgang Broadway Vol.2' mixtape
In 2008, SI/OPB and PYG continued making movements in music, releasing the 'Blackgang Broadway Vol.2' mixtape. The mixtape included the classic track 'Gunshot Riddim', which included 8 Bar verses from 10 different members:
Two other music videos were made for tracks on the project:
In the summer Shoot Instant members released classic music video filmed on their block (Aylesbury Estate):

Peckham 'Gunshot Riddim' v Brixton 'Bullet Riddim'
With the war between Ghetto and Peckham over, the war between Brixton (OC/GAS) and Peckham (SI/PYG) started cracking in 2008.
That summer there were back-and-forth shootings between OC and SI members. In one incident, OC rode out on Walworth Road and caught Snap Capone (SI) and Butch (SI) slipping. Snap and Butch ran into the Costcutter store and OC shot at them from the outside, but ended up killing a civilian. That made big media headlines:
Not long afterwards, OC/GAS released a response track to SI/PYG - Gunshot Riddim in which OC members mocked Snap and Butch for running in the above incident: "remember what we flew in Wooly Road" ... "had you running in the shop like you're buying suttin" ... "my dargs only run when they see the riot van" (etc): OC/GAS - Bullet Riddim
Gunshot Riddim v Bullet Riddim was the start of the back-and-forth diss music videos between Brixton (OC/GAS) and Peckham (SI/PYG). Cracking on the streets and over Youtube. As I stated before, this era was the origins of what we now call the UK Drill scene.

SN1 and Boomblast release 'Welcome 2 Boomzville' mixtape
In the run-up to Giggs' debut album, SN1 released the 'Welcome 2 Boomzville' mixtape - entirely produced by SN1 producer Boomblast. The mixtape included various street classics:
SN1's allies OTB (Wooly Road) released their first project: the 'Woolyhood' mixtape:

Giggs releases his debut album
On 4 August 2008, Giggs released his debut album 'Walk In Da Park' through his independent label SN1 Records. The album cemented the rise of Giggs within the UK scene after his run of mixtapes (Hollow Grind, Hollow Meets Blade & Ard Bodied) made him king in the streets.

Ghetto Boys and Peckham Boys linkup
In August 2008, Killa Ki (OPB) arranged the linkup of Peckham Boys and Ghetto Boys members for the Notting Hill Carnival. Up to 180 members from both gangs linked up and started making their way to the carnival, but the police stopped them before they could reach it:
Killa Ki addressed the Ghetto-Peckham linkup in the track Krept & Konan feat. SI (Killa Ki, Snap Capone, Nuttie) - Let Em Ave It: "I organised Ghetto linking Narm, I made history. Darg I'm a boss in the Narm. It was a South East Link Up, anyhow we got Carni it would've been nuts"
The following video includes news reports and footage of the Ghetto-Peckham linkup:

Flying squad detain Peckham robbery members
It was previously mentioned that Javarie Crighton and Michael Dosunmu were murdered in 2007 during a dispute between members of the Peckham armed robbery team. In September 2008, the police arrested seven members of the gang, including the likes of Moaner.
Police suspected them of committing 120 robberies and called their criminal enterprise "prolific". It took 150 police officers to conduct the raids on the Peckham Boys and arrest 7 members:

Giggs becomes first ever winner of the 'Best International Act' at the BET Awards
In Autumn, Giggs was nominated for as 'Best International Act' at the BET Hip hop Awards alongside grime artists Skepta, Chip and Ghetts (much more established/mainstream artists):
Fans voted for the winner and Giggs won, becoming the first ever artist to win the 'Best International Act'. This was a big deal, because despite the police applying serious pressure to stop Giggs, he was still able to rise to the top. It was also another demonstration of the fall of Grime and the rise of UK Rap. Here's a video of Tim Westwood congratulating Giggs for the win:
Even though Giggs won the BET Award, when he came back to the UK the pressure applied by the police intensified. In frustration, Giggs released the 'Last Straw' freestyle in which he directly dissed Ray Paul (BBC executive) and Jasmine Dotwala (MTV executive):

Death of Termz
In October 2008, 20-year old SN1 member Termz was shot dead as he left his house by Brixton olders. This further heated up the Brixton and Peckham beef at the time:
Termz made one music video before his death:

Younger PYG members start releasing music
In late 2008, the younger generation of PYG members started releasing music videos. The young members included Tiny Snap, Young Size, M1, Stigs, CS and others. Most of the bars at this time were disses towards Brixton's OC (now 410) and GAS (now 150/GBG):

__________________________

From 2009 onwards, the beef between Peckham (SI/PYG) and Brixton (OC/GAS) became the biggest story on roads and in the UK Rap scene. For the Brixton perspective, check The History of 410.

2020.04.02 20:53 eric0510 2020 XXL Freshman Class: A Closer Look

What’s up HHH! So I’m a high school teacher who loves hip-hop, and I’ve been able to get pretty ahead of the game with my education plans for my students. This means I have time on my hands. I’m sick of my SNES classic. I’ve read ‘Salem’s Lot in a week. And I’ve fallen in love with Tiger King. Yes. Fuckin’ Carole Baskin did kill her husband.
I’ve followed the XXL Freshman Class for the last few years, and this is the first time I have had time to look at the nominees for the 10th spot. There are 96 artists who are up for debate. Some are terrible, some are awesome, and a lot are middle of the road average. I’ve spent a lot of time listening to their Soundcloud and checking out their YouTube videos. Here are some observations, a couple top 5 lists and my prediction!
Unfortunately, BigKlit is not that good
“If I met God, then I’d make him eat my pussy.”
Wow. I don’t think I’ve ever found a line that I hate and love so much. If you’re looking for a music video / Mediumcore POV porn featuring this lovely bikini-clad artist, check out What That Mouth Do. It’s a Solo.. I mean it only features BigKilt on the beach, she spends 80% of the video, holding a knife, gyrating or with her fingers in her mouth.
This is definitely some shock value stuff right here. Her music video, Liar, is more popular but again, the entire thing is about cutting off her boyfriend’s penis for, I’m going to assume, being a liar. I will say BigKlit hits the mark on the aggressive and incredibly sexual rap style she’s aiming for, but she’s definitely not for me. Her music is not that popular right now, but she has a small fanbase aka “The Big Klitters.”
Her Pitch Video was surprisingly wholesome!
Who the Fuck is Caiden???
One of the major talking points when this list came out was “Who that kid?” After the barest amount of actual research, he’s Caiden Mills, the son of friggin’ Consequence. A rapper who has been so close to notoriety and fame that it’s almost sad he isn’t a household name. Basically Consequence is Kanye West’s buddy, he has a record label and he got his son performing and rapping.
Unfortunately when you check out Caiden’s YouTube channel, it’s not that cute. The song Yellow Diamonds seems more like an opportunity to plaster your then 7-year-old in front of a green screen saying audience friendly lines about jewelry and being the best. There’s a hint of adorable in it, but something about it isn’t right.
When you watch his Freshman pitch, that really painful realization that this kid is being paraded around by family and told to say very cringey rap related phrases.
The only thing I can foresee, because this is the Internet, is a massive group of people will stay on their laptops and continuously choose Caiden every hour, so that XXL will be forced to feature a 9 year old in their Cyphers and Freestyles.
WTF Music Videos
I have included this category purely for Kidd Kenn. With these young artists, the budgets for music videos aren’t super high, so I’m guessing that singing your song in a house with all your friends is the easiest way to show the world, “there are at least a dozen people who enjoy my music”. With the track, Babysitter, it’s a run of the mill party song with so-so lyrics and a boring hook.
But the video. If I could let the random kidnap victim from the video provide my facial expression throughout most of the video. There is a butler wearing an enormous and ridiculous suit, a mother character who in the beginning looks ready to star in a different kind of babysitter themed video, there is a giant house filled with pianos, and Kidd Kenn sits at one and does not play it, and of course they kidnap a random dude.
If you want to see Jasiah struggle to escape a straight jacket and have a lot of difficulty walking past a bald gentleman, check out: Crisis.
If you want to see the most confident short guy of all time, check out J.I. in Need Me
Lastly, if you want to see the coolest, most dope motherfucker on the list play with fidget spinners back in 2017 when that shit was all the rage, check out Matt Ox in Overwhelming.
Overrated?
I want to include this section for one man, and one man only. Jack Harlow. For the sake of argument, listen to his latest EP Sweet Action. Outside of that one song What’s Poppin, everything else is soooooo bland and bad. In his pitch, he called his music universal and timeless. You are ridiculous Jack Harlow. Get outta here.
Also I am not a fan of 1TakeJay. The perfect mix of charisma and douche-baggery.
Realistic Contenders
With the 96 XXL Freshman candidates that we have in front of us, there are some names that stick out more than others. It makes it hard to get into some of the lesser known names, because it’s pretty clear that the big names are going to be chosen well before the unknowns.
Although, I’m not big fans of a lot of these guys, I would love to hear some debate about which ones are more likely to be chosen in the final spot. Or if there are a bunch on this list, who will all make it (I could see these names all being in the final top 10). Here is a list of the legit contenders based on popularity, talent and sound.
5) Iann Dior
Iann Dior hits more of a unique note compared to the rest of the guys on the list. A student of mine recommended him, and it was pretty jarring to hear his sound, based on the student who told me about Iann Diorr. Very emotional bars, a sound that’s similar to Trippie Redd but much more palatable and although his lines border on the corny, I could get behind a lot of the songs on his project Industry Plant.
4) 24KGoldn
I made a pretty snap judgment about this guy after listening to his project Dropped Outta College. He seemed like the same kind of party boy rapper that I’ve heard a lot before. But after watching his XXL pitch, this guy is actually super down-to-earth, intelligent, and threw together an awesome argument for why he should be the next freshman. It was refreshing considering a lot of the same nonsense that came out in the variety of pitches that were included in the list.
3) Lil Tecca
Blowing up with his song Ransom, Lil Tecca has been a frontrunner for this spot for the last year or so. I personally think he has benefitted from a very quirky Cole Bennett music video and insanely catchy instrumentals. Ransom was done by Nick Mira, the guy responsible for some of Juice Wrld’s (RIP) most popular songs, Empty, Lucid Dreams, Robbery and All Girls are the Same. But I will say his project We Love Tecca has done well, so he has developed an incredible fanbase.
2) NLE Choppa
I’m going to say it. I do not care for NLE Choppa. I think his lines are generic, his content is always the same and he only has interesting production to back him up. The piano lick is the most interesting thing in the video for Camelot. This video also features the most painfully fake gang fight plus cops pulling up scenes I’ve ever seen. Granted, I’m almost 30 years old. His brand isn’t for me. But when I watch his XXL pitch video (see rant below), I just don’t see it. Sure he’s popular, but staying power, I don’t think so.
1) Lil Tjay
If I were to ask my students who the next freshman should be off this list, Lil TJay would be the number one candidate. And again, I’m an old timer, but I do really enjoy this guy’s music. I had my students writing essays about three songs that all connect to the same theme and one of my weaker students used 3 Lil TJay songs (Brothers, F.N. and 20/20) and it was really well done. I think a guy like NLE Choppa has the gimmicks and the gun bars, but Lil TJay has some actual substance in his lines. Of all the contenders, I really hope this guy gets the spot.
My Personal Top 5
So, above are my top 5 predictions for who will most likely win the 10th spot. But, I think this post is a tremendous opportunity to shed some light on some unexpected talent. So here’s my top 5 of potentially overlooked gems.
5) Key Glock
Although he’s getting millions of streams on Youtube, I don’t think Key Glock has been in the same kind of conversations as the above artists. I listened to his project Yellow Tape and I was incredibly impressed, particularly Dough and Word on the Streets were fantastic tracks. Although content-wise he’s not really making a splash, I love his voice. He’s got a low-key and smooth vocal range, and I love the hooks and verses throughout the whole album. For me, he’s a guy who can stand out in the “I got guns, diamonds and money” trend in hip-hop.
4) D Smoke
Although I didn’t get into D Smoke’s project Black Habits initially, I’ve come back to it since I saw him show up on the XXL Freshman list. This album is pretty fantastic, and again we have another artist who stands out among a crowd of trap and party tracks. On this project we get a great track like No Commas that shows off some Kendrick vibes. We get a real message on this whole project about the expectations of black people in society, the importance of religion and the continued trauma that incarceration can have on a family. I will definitely follow this guy’s career going forward.
3) Chika
Although I was thrown for a loop when she started crying in her XXL pitch because she was told by bullies that she would never make the Freshman list (ughhhh), this chick is fantastic. Check out her NPR Tiny Desk Concert, it is a terrific show that highlights how she has a different sound and a lot of rap ability. Not only that, I’ve started getting into her album Industry Games, and it is consistent as hell. It’s a short and sweet project that has a great message and some catchy songs.
2) Dax
If you haven’t, listen to his Godzilla remix right now. It is absolutely insane. Of all the songs I’ve been listening to from these potential XXL Freshmen, this track (although it’s only a remix) gave me those great music shivers. This guy is from Ottawa (where I’m from) and his lyrical ability is absolutely ridiculous. I recommend his YouTube remixes before his album. Unfortunately his album runs a bit into im14andthisisdeep territory. But I will give it to him, he has some talent, and I’ll be keeping my eyes out for new projects from him.
1) Reason
If we’re here to look at original sound, unique style and somebody who stands out, I need to vote for Reason. He’s got a raspy but not too raspy voice, he’s got more flow than 90% of the rappers on this list and because of his unique vocals, his bars hit that much harder. One of my favourite highlights from him is the Dreamville joint Still Up with him and Earthgang. His project from 2018 There You Have It is solid too, check out the tracks Kurupt and Better Dayz. He is a Top Dawg Entertainment signee, and I feel like he has an opportunity to blow up in the near future.
A Message About the Pitches
So there were 68 pitches from artists on why they should be the next XXL Freshman. I went into it with some unrealistic expectations because I assumed a pitch would feature some rapping, and there was only one artist who actually did, shout out Renni Rucci and Jordan Hollywood.
There was Abby Jasmine, who started talking, did not know why she was there, and then bailed hard.
Poor Toosii wore a wild jacket and looked so fly, but when you go to listen to his music on the XXL page, it’s actually Tyla Yahweh’s.
Lil Loaded wins awards for “Can Afford Diamonds But Not A Shirt” and “Least Likely to Not Wear A Shirt During Their Pitch”
AzChike painfully tries to explain why his rap name is funny…
Jackboy could barely come up with Amazing and Awesome as words to describe him.. As the business is based around writing lyrics, not a great sign
Shoutout to Suigeneris and 24KGoldn, with very charismatic and down to earth pitches!
Bankroll Freddie tries to bring enough money to bribe his music into relevance, but comes up short.
Last highlight from Worl: “I’m a real n****, you can see it in my eyes obviously.” Puts on sunglasses.
My personal highlight is the amount of artists that said they were the ones who were authentic, the originator, unique, not like everyone else in the game right now, there aren’t too many artists out there like me, ain’t nobody doin it like me. Love it.
Final Thoughts
Overall, having these artists to listen to while I plan my lessons and figure out online learning has been awesome. Hip-hop has always been my favourite genre and to scour through this massive list of up and coming artists, it’s exciting to see what will be blowing up in the next couple years.
Even though a lot of the music I found was generic and some of it truly started to blend together after a while, there were some incredible artists that I’ve added to my Apple Music that I hope to follow in the future.
Who’s Going to Win: NLE Choppa
Who Should Win: Lil TJay

2020.03.09 17:50 fractalfay I can’t wait to touch her face: Recap of Before the 90 Days S04E03, the coronavirus edition

Welcome to the 90DF safe space for snark, coming at you from self-imposed quarantine and fever dreams and a metric fuckton of antibiotics and anti-inflammatories. Suffice it to say I’m still sick, but I suspect a hearty dose of the bad decisions of others will have me on the mend in no time.
And speaking of diseases, things kick off with that international criminal TLC lent a microphone to, but since we’ve already signed the petition to boot his glassy-eyed Big Little Lies mug into orbit, let’s move on to people with fewer felonies, shall we?
Usman, who is totally not a yahoo boy, is living with multiple yahoo boys in a one bedroom yahoo hut, as celebrities do. Usman #2 is so entry level he doesn’t even get his own name, and Giant is his best friend and unofficial security detail. Usman ditches the yahoos and goes out with his friends from the entertainment industry to smoke hookahs without inviting Zied. Despite an internet engagement and a song with no specific references, this team has never heard of Babygirl Lisa, since, much like Pauly Shore and Prince (RIP), Usman probably refers to all women by this name.
As further evidence of his two-year mystery relationship, Usman shows off Lisa’s Glamour Shot captured with Darcey’s upcoming app, Denial for Women. His friends pause to quickly inspect what they put in that hookah. Usman assures them that it’s not about looks, it’s about getting to America where everyone in LA is a producer.
“it’s true,” Blake interjects. “But do you know where Pennsylvania is, my friend?”
Usman tells them that she’s 49 or 50, and Lisa tells us she’s 52, so she’s probably eligible for free coffee at McDonald’s and buys food from the grocery store on senior discount Wednesdays. No word on whether he’s aware that she wants him to throw his hotdog down her hallway without the bun.
Concerned friend, Joseph (oh HI Joseph) just wants him to focus on his music, and Usman admits that she gets in the way of this, because she’s jealous of every heart and thumbs-up he receives from folks with boobs or lightly feminine names, to the point where she’s been chasing people around IG with a menacing emoji knife in her heavily-filtered hand. Someone needs to tell Lisa that some people will go after your man even if he’s fresh out of prison and 90% forehead. Seriously: these folks need to watch Love After Lockup, for research.
Usman knows that the only chance of arriving stateside is to keep this ruse in motion. “I just have to, you know, try to tolerate her,” he muses, solving the problem of what I’m going to write in this year’s anniversary card.
Usman decides to bring Giant and Usman #2 with him to pick up Baby Girl Lisa from the airport, because what’s a yahoo without his boys? Or maybe Usman’s trying to avoid a post-flight car boot and fistfight, like the one Michael didn’t enjoy that required Angela for big mouth backup. Giant asks if he can hug her like a creeper as an introduction, and Usman #1 says that a wife is for one man, while a husband is for everyone. They want to know what he’s going to do if he’s not attracted to her, and these guys really aren’t getting it.
Lisa gets off the airplane and doesn’t bother with any of that fancy whore’s bath airport business, or even an air freshener around her neck before lunging for Usman. He presents her with a red rose, and realizes that up until this point he’s only seen her from the neck up. She makes animal snarls to profess her approval for his man meat, while Usman says she has a big belly he didn’t know about, but is acceptable to him. I don’t remember this lyric from that personalized love song!
Then Usman presents Lisa to two people she’s never met before. Somewhere, Jasmin wakes up screaming. All the same, the chauffeur situation creates the opportunity for them to dry hump the entire way to the hotel, while his friends dry heave in the front. At some point a yeasty lizard tongue slithers from Lisa’s mouth and threatens to pull Usman’s head into her mouth for praying mantis purposes.
At the hotel, the yahoos help with the luggage, and Lisa sees the potential for these fools to become hotel fixtures, so she tells them to GTFO so she can destroy Usman’s genitals with her Venus dick trap in their personal room 104. Ever the diplomats, the 90DF producers ask if Usman’s looking forward to driving her down to pound town, and there’s this long, 55% pause, before he finally says, “She’s not who I’m usually attracted to, but she has lady parts, and I have man parts, you know.” This is a line from Usman’s upcoming track, “Baby Girl Lisa, I Guess You’ll Do.”
In the safety of their room, Lisa just wants him to be truly super attracted to her, because she still hasn’t figured out that she’s the one prioritizing beauty. If I’m chasing dick around at 52 years old, Goddess please give me access to mirrors and the ability to acknowledge that no one is going to look at me like I’m 22. Also, give me the time to find some flattering outfits, and a personalized skin care regime before my international tour of dicks.
Time to meet Stephanie, who has a blue acoustic guitar, and the same Youtube channel as 80% of white women on the internet. However, instead of presenting the required warbling Regina Spektor imitation while butchering a defenseless trap song, she sings a wholesome little yarn about pizza. For those of you not keeping up, pizza is the new bacon, and bacon was the new vegan, and vegan was the old mistake.
Anyway, now that we’ve all developed soy allergies, we learn that Stephanie was born in the Czech Republic. When she first arrived in the US of A she didn’t speak a lick of English, so she was very lonely, until she discovered the internet is a cornucopia of imaginary friends, and she harvested her own crop, just like the rest of us. Freedom isn’t free, so she makes videos of purchases she describes as “hauls,” beauty tutorials, and anything else that will make people at home squee and subscribe.
Stephanie is bisexual, and plans to travel to Australia to meet Erica, a funky chick with a Manic Panic sponsorship who lives in the Outback and owns a $10,000 camera lens. Envy, is that you? Get out of my narrative! She estimates they’ve exchanged over 100,000 text messages, and she will get 10,000 new subscribers once she films her “coming out” confessional video and the pizza song hits the airwaves. I don’t even care if this is a con, because at least this con is more interesting than Yolanda.
“I can’t wait to touch her face,” gushes Stephanie, prompting Yonkers to declare a code blue and quarantine 300 miles around her house with a thick outline of hand sanitizer.
Later, Stephanie plays tennis with her friends, on purpose, because that happens. She says that she wants to slow motion run towards Erica, like that time freeze dude in Freaks. Buzzkill friend Heather is worried that Stephanie is about to embark on yet another failed relationship, and, time-out: isn’t that how this works? You fail at relationships and get hurt a bunch of times until you don’t?
Stephanie tells her friends that her mom doesn’t know she’s bi. She doesn’t want to keep this from her mom, but her mom has mapped an ideal life for her, and a rainbow-haired Aussie is one of those undesignated islands. Plus, if Stephanie hastily confesses, they won’t have enough manufactured drama for multiple seasons. Gay friend Spencer tells her not to lie, unless a cop is involved and the question concerns sobriety. Stephanie then raises her eyebrows, to signal every participant that it’s time to adopt The Concerned Face.
Later on, Stephanie’s family makes the 70 minutes trek to her house with a proper Eastern European feast and cleaning ambitions, and as someone with a Polish family, Mother Stephanie is on brand. They express concern about her intentions to travel overseas, because Stephanie has aplastic anemia, and this is how the Mayo Clinic describes this disease:
“Aplastic anemia is a condition that occurs when your body stops producing enough new blood cells. The condition leaves you fatigued and more prone to infections and uncontrolled bleeding. A rare and serious condition, aplastic anemia can develop at any age. Treatment for aplastic anemia might include medications, blood transfusions or a stem cell transplant, also known as a bone marrow transplant.”
Stephanie spent months receiving blood transfusions every other day, and her health is so fragile they can’t understand why she’s risking it for three weeks down under Erica. But Stephanie is going there instead of bringing her here to delay the family introduction, and because the 90DF producers want us to feel the anxiety of an action movie during our viewing experience. Stephanie, please hit up Vogmask for product placement opportunities, because that thin surgical mask you were sporting in the previews just won’t do.
If you are suddenly hit with the overwhelming odor of magazine perfume, that’s Darcey’s drumroll, and she’s here to defend her crown for most seasons on a fiancé tv show without ever actually having one. I’d caution TLC about not getting any ideas about 90 Days Almost-Fiancee, but we’d watch that shit too.
Darcey been dating Tom’s good angle all by herself for the past year, and she’s not sure if Tom knows about this. So she goes to gym for new mirror opportunities, and just before her bold effort to run her tits off her chest, Stacey texts her to let her know that Tom hired an escort to pose in photographs with him. Darcey would have seen these staged photos for herself, but her and Tom blocked each other on social media after a fight, like a lot of people drunk or in high school. If she can figure out how to slow down this runaway treadmill, she’ll have to decide between calling him to pick a fight immediately, or waiting until they’re in New York with a camera crew. This question is not really a question.
While Darcey was at the gym, Stacey attempted to get enough injections to disguise her smirk and told-you-so expression, and it almost worked. They get smoothies and gather around a table to discuss how to drag this storyline into an entire season.
“I think you should let it go,” says Stacey, reading off her hand.
“I need to see for myself, because I never learn anything,” Darcey retorts.
Speaking of folks without an actual fiancé, the 90DF producers are slowly realizing that Yolanda doesn’t have a storyline, since they mostly record her calling Williams in Manchester, Nigeria. He never answers the phone, and suddenly his instagram is deleted, and replaced with a new fake identity. Yolanda declares she doesn’t know what’s going on, which makes me wonder if Yolanda knows anything at all, if this non-mystery requires additional clues. Yolanda, I would like to solve the puzzle.
In Seattle, Avery ships little Silver off to her dad, and then heads to the airport to begin her marathon travel to meet Ash in Melbourne. Ash makes money slinging the wisdom of Buzzfeed quizzes and self help books at women he’d like the fuck, when he’s not busy giving himself a UTI by meditating with his ass submerged in water so he has an excuse when his pee burns.
Ash believes that he and Avery’s souls have met a few times at astral cook-outs, and he’s a stone sober single dad making enough cash to have a pool, a car, and endless boxes of flowers. This means he’s cult-leader successful. With Avery poised to arrive he heads to a flower shop to cash in his frequent flower points, and the florist wrecks his game by greeting him by first name and admitting that Ash is such a regular that they started selling condoms too, in a bid to become his one-stop shop. Florist dude says it’s not surprising, since Ash knows what to say to a woman, thus confirming that Avery’s suspicions about him are likely true, but at least this show still counts as a free ad for cannabis salads.
Meanwhile, Big Ed lands in the Philippines, and is ready to meet Rose. He knows that Rose is out of his league, but he’s willing to travel overseas if that’s what it takes to commit to someone he has no interest in knowing. 90 Day Fiancé then leads us to believe that despite endless phone call exchanges, Big Ed can’t possibly ring her while he waits in the airport in a bike messenger outfit, hiding behind a plant.
While he’s in the sky, Rose gets her house, herself, and her four year-old son Prince ready to welcome Big Ed and his suitcase full of assumptions. She lives in a two room house with her sister, and if Ed had asked Rose any questions about herself, he might have learned this trivia before he packed 300 condoms and Lisa Vanderpump’s lingerie from 1986.
Rosemarie reveals that her mother died, and since then she’s been living with her sister Wilma, who she considers a second mother. Rose says she likes how positive and funny Big Ed is, and considers his mayonnaise-hair The Sex, because you can’t smell over video chat. She explains that she wants Prince to call Big Ed “daddy,” because she wants Ed to take care of her son, and her dream is to have two more children. Little does she know Big Ed sees Prince primarily as a vagina obstacle, and intends to take medical action to crush her dreams the moment she’s stateside and marooned without a green card.
Sister Wilma says that Big Ed is different from Rosemarie’s past entanglements, because he has a bigger body and the age difference is 30 years, but he’s rich, so fuck it. Wilma knows her sister just wants what’s best for her son. They go to meet up with Rosemarie’s father, who is understandably skeptical of this arrangement, and distrustful of Big Ed’s intentions. It might have something to do with that 40 gallon bucket of lube he shipped in advance, along with his list of dietary restrictions and princess and the pea sleeping requirements.
Back in 90DF present, the wait is finally over, and Rose goes skittering across the airport in a bright red dress to meet her future husband and unravel the first of what is probably many lies. She sweetly tells him that he lied about his height, which he admits, and says he thought she wouldn’t like him if he was fully honest about that. Never mind that he didn’t give her a choice. Later on the producers ask if she’s attracted to him, and while giggling she says that he’s short and big, but she is attracted to him.
Once in the cab, Big Ed says he’s really tired and wants to get a hotel for the first night. This is probably something he should have told her in advance, since she has a child. She point this out, by saying she doesn’t usually stay at hotels because she HAS A CHILD, and Big Ed ignores this human obstacle, which is also his plan for the next 14 years. Then she mentions a party she went to at a hotel before, which inspires an interrogation from Big Ed, who is certain she didn’t exist before he met her 9 months ago. I’m kinda glad someone who hasn’t had sex for 20-some years is cool with explaining to us why that happened, exactly.
Next week, Avery is ready to meet Dr. Fucks-a-Lot, and Lisa demonstrates that her demand to be center of attention is working exactly as well as we thought it would. The MmmmmMMMm guy finally makes his debut, which means Yolanda’s 15 minutes is at 14:59, and Captain Creepy suddenly remembers he lives in America, and his girlfriend might be considering moving there to be his next restraining order.

2020.03.07 00:06 bbukrpdr ✨🌒 Reddit Dragula - S5E4: “Reverie”

An exhalation of air breathed from the sea expires in the room, infusing the silk linen curtains with billows of floral scents. They contorted into various shapes, figures of those who too had shared the same gust in the valley. It’s short lived presence was to be thanked, mitigating the severe heat of a fine Italian summer.
A mist of dust dancing in the amber rays of sun fluttered throughout the space of the room. Small, it was, although only by the creation of books, copious amounts of them. Each corner was home to an impressive collection of seemingly dusted novels, balancing on velvet cushions as a bird may perch, fragile enough that with any second blow of wind they might fall onto the more fragile wooden floorboards, failing to take flight.
It may be a weird comparison, to compare books, so aged that the corner of each page would dishevel and become stamped by the curious flicks of your finger, your fingerprint, to birds. Although anything, living or dead, motionless or in motion, would desire to escape to the view from the window. The rolling fields of the valley leading up to hills which were swallowed in a smog of plush green; sunflowers, grapevines, smears of white jasmine and swatches of lavender. Almost as if a fleet of drenched doves rose, flicking not water, but pastel pigments from their wings, decorating the forestry as if by the hand of Jackson Pollock.
Reverie was broken the instant that the wisps of nearby chatter from the piazzetta entered the room. Chatter was not a distraction, only a reminder that - despite the heavens surrounding our property - we remained on earth, something held dear to a home which was further into the valley than most others. You may only walk down the tarnished stairs to be greeted by a friendly face of a housekeeper, and may find comfort besides the gardner in the orchard, possibly serenaded by the glisten of the sea and seduced by the amazing bodies that patrolled it’s rear. Civilisation was near, albeit sparse, still in existence. To some that would be enjoyed, but with the new guests arriving, it was unsure as to whether they may bring a wrath hotter than the sands onto the grounds of the local area or be tamed by the blessings of mother nature and nestle into their new abode without destruction.
Chipped into the gate of an arch within the stone wall on the perimeter of the land was: ‘Alfonsi’. This property so famously known to the delight of visitors as the…
ALFONSI MANOR ITALY
Tourists had named this gate the entrance to heaven, as they had named almost every other square meter of the property. Someone very fond may refer the manor to being a church, the orchard the Garden of Eden, the path winding down to the beach as purgatory; a long walk to an unsure fate of pleasant light or lingering rain.
The baleful heat of day and cerulean visage looming suggested that it was the afternoon. A time at which the signature Italian chorus of cicadas would be at its loudest which, in the town centre, would be replaced by the stomps of stampedes. Old men with skin strained by the sun departing the sweaty busses, espadrilles dragging amongst the pebbles, deprived of vigour.
In fact, the bus doors had remained open for a longer time than usual. You’d expect to hear the wheels inflate once again and see them make the ground continue to tremor elsewhere, but the engine remained off with steps grazing the floor.
A single louboutin heel takes a curious step onto the stone path surrounding the nearby statue remembering some war of the past. Scuffed by none but obscured by the glaze of the sun, twisting into the rubble as to conjure a dramatic plume of residue to enhance her arrival.
“This is glorious.”
Bella Esmeralda peers out of the vehicle, looking over to the distant mirage of water. For a moment, the lens was able to capture the beautiful hues of blue reflected in her eyes, but soon that was disrupted by a push of who followed behind.
“Alright, get on with it. It’s hot. I’m hot-” Amelia fans herself with a pedicured hand, exiting the bus “- clearly the Italians are also.”
The camera turns to the direction in which her passionate glance was sent, observing a group of overtly chubby Italian men playing a game of poker on the terrace of a shabby restaurant. Evidently Scarlet had not found mutual interest, most likely pleased enough with her Paris men at home, her brows furrowed as she gestures Amelia to rush forward, as she had just done to Bella.
[SCARLET VENOM]: We’re in Italy and this place is beautiful. I’m not quite sure what made Fantasia and Bella think UK was worth starting out in when they planned to have us here regardless.
Like a class of children on a residential trip, the competitors fled the claustrophobic premise of the bus and rejoiced besides the war memorial. It was not there for them to pay respects, only to observe momentarily whilst Bella awaited to receive direction on her phone.
“Welcome to Italy, although only known by most of you westerners for pizza, one of the most beautiful places on earth. At least for Fantasia, who has just sent me an address that leads to a house in France…”
“Oooh, there we go girls. Maybe we will finally get to do a catacombs floorshow and get to meet Bella’s family.”
Satina smirks, looking over to the others. They had all discussed the concept of a catacombs themed floorshow before, so it was to no one's surprise that the anticipation of such would resurface at the slightest of moments - even when in Italy. Speaking of, what would happen here? Does one get exterminated, even when in Italy? Are people to be left behind, even in Italy? Those thoughts should be pondering in the contestants heads right now, as it was unusual to see a move in the midst of the game.
“We’re staying?”
Leviathan gasps, having been unsure of how long their trip was to last.
“Some of you will be staying, let’s just leave it at that.”
The response from Bella did what was thought to be impossible, elicit shivers from the competitors, even in the supreme of the summer blaze. A fear that conquers all, the thought of having to travel all the way back, an extermination challenge in its own right. Defeat was already dawning upon some, a flick of black ink, slowly spreading and growing, consuming words of wisdom that once motivated them all.
Such melancholy discussion continued throughout the breach of the haze. The bus which had so graciously occupied them for hours end had risen from the ground and drove away, past the lens, whispers of their voices heard from the exhaust rather than the vibrato of the engine. With the departure of the vehicle was a transition to the time of this chatter. They had left the piazzetta and took the stranded roads that would soon, unknowingly to them, lead them to their new home.
“I felt really down about placing in the bottom again. I loved my work and I don’t know what else they expect from me.”
Leviathan shared her worries. It was questionable whether her doubts were to reason for her low spirits and lack of pride in her walk, perhaps the heat had gotten to her, as it had for the rest of the cast. A monotonous road which seemed to lead nowhere, each step simply a reward to those who had born scabs from paving the way, although to no particular direction.
“You go out there and get a win this week then.”
Satina reaches out to comfort her with a pat on the shoulder. Her hand rests there, lethargic; lack of bother to move.
“I was feeling really down about the competition too-” Amelia glances over at the pair “- I wasn’t shining and I was worried it would affect my future performance. I’m humbled to have won and now I’m ready to step outside of the box and win this thing.”
“You deserved it, I’m glad to have been against you for that spot. When I saw your work I knew it would be strong competition, it was drag.”
Amelia smiles at Scarlets response.
“I knew I was going to be safe or somewhere in the bottom, I felt like I screwed myself over slightly. In my original plan, I was going to have three people die by signs which really would’ve put me in the shits after Fantasia critiqued having two the same already.”
Vienna joins in the conversation, all now remarking the prior nights critiques. This topic would have been discussed by now, but with the late conclusion of judging, sleep that felt more like a gentle limber between a night of dreams and simply having your eyes shut with the flight to Italy in the early birth of raw sun - they did not have the time nor energy to speak of the matter.
“Yeah, it sucks. I’m just happy to still be here though.
In the midst of the group was Aurora, contributing to recall with her own thoughts. A conversation long overdue that most certainly continued for much too long, only to trespass what would be an hour ahead of them before arrival.
A journey worth taking, however. The manor stood like one of the seven wonders, tall on a vertiginous hill within the valley. Nature around the establishment had been painted with a brush, a topaz swipe upwards for the apricot trees in the orchard, the pressure and release of an index finger on the coarse bristles for a fine distribution of white stars in the darkening sky. Blue pigment smeared with water tainted green from the prior cleansing dip; algae spawning in the ponds and a sheer facade of dabbles to simulate a cooling mist of water vapour rising from the grounds.
The building itself was rather rustic. Known for having accommodated famous families, although if one were to ask, no one would care to remember their names. Only the title awarded to this home was deserving of recognition, or even the name of the gardeners and housekeepers that kept and prioritised it’s state rather than their own. With every apricot plucked was the firm grip of rigid fingers, not exactly making the fruit any juicier or more plump, but stamping it with pride and comfort.
Almost as an analogy for the season and what is to come. Although no fruit goes to waste, it is first the good apricots that are to be enjoyed and squeezed into juice from the comforts of the kitchen. It is the ones that subdue to the heat which are left for the bottom of the barrel.
“Feeling at home, Bella?”
The group were withdrawn from their hypnotic state of awe, each of their five senses brought back to life from their transfixation. Bella, ahead of the group, looked around in search of the voice. She peered towards the door, noticing only a stray chihuahua toddling out of the doors.
“Huh?”
The lone, petite dog sat. It stared at the new arrivals for a moment, confused as to whether she was still on the pound or not, and then back to the originator of whichever voice had just spoken. A flutter of beige and maroon silks flew in the gust of air, caressing the bare lower-legs of whichever figure had just left the house. The fabric belonged to a relatively simple dress, a lengthy skirt although thin to survive the weather conditions outside. An off-the shoulder neckline showing bronzed collar bones and the delicate embrace of a golden chain pressing lightly against her tanned neck.
Her locks of brunette hair flowed naturally, as if they too had been blessed by the surroundings, the salt of the sea, loose curls partitioned to one side, reflecting the now far sunset with natural auburn highlights. Eyes emblazoned with her own forestry of green and lips as if they had been pressed against the bud of a rose.
This woman was in her casual attire, but had somehow managed to sustain the same effect of a Versace model in the prime spotlights of fashion week. Italian vogue had nothing on her, neither did the royals back home, standing with modelesque poise and greeting her dog with grace and decorum.
Only that this, this moment which just so happened to occur in slow motion, a moment when the blind were granted more blind from the impact of the house and the women, a sight too much for a pair of human eyes to handle - this would’ve continued longer had it not been for Fantasia’s sudden release of awkwardness and brazen introduction.
“Look Bella, some new friends to play with. Go bite. Especially the one that looks like a bulldog.”
To which she pointed at the human Bella, the dog following her lead. She did not bear any fangs, but instead two pits, two oblivions of cuteness that stared wide into their souls. The whore wanted a treat.
“Sequitur, sequitur.” Fantasia mumbled hastily under her breath, sighing and heading back into the house. “Is no one going to follow? Must I repeat myself? Unless you ought to stay somewhere else, but why would you want to? I know when Satina raises her arms it smells like sauerkraut but-”
Her voice had grown too distant, now belonging to the echoes within the home. The others looked at eachother, shrugging and following in. Scarlet is late to enter, quickly snagging an apricot from the nearest tree before entering, tossing it up and down in her hand.
“Ladies, Gentlemen, meet Martina and Greta.”
Two elderly ladies who seemed too used to the prosperity of new, foreign visitors stood in the large kitchen. Scarlet was first to receive a slap on the hand, Greta removing the fruit from the nestle of her grip and placing it in a bowl beside her on the counter.
“No.”
The lady imperatively states, Scarlet blushing as she did when scalded as a child. Greta gestures towards the window where an even older man presses his face against the window. The group would jump upon noticing, maybe scared by his sudden appearance, or that he literally looked like Portia, only if her face had become resembling of a pensioners sac due to the course of time. Italiano. He walked away, arms further from his stomach than the fridge to the oven in the kitchen. He must’ve liked his spaghetti.
“That wasn’t even the gardner… must’ve just been a tourist.”
Fantasia, addressing the sudden appearance of a stranger outside, conjured worrisome faces from the monsters. Miss Venom seemed too concerned about the faint red mark on her hand, snarling - as the chihuahua should’ve - to the woman. Vienna and Aurora watched from the corner, attempting not to laugh. Both probably thought of warning her not to retaliate in such a matter, as she would be the determining factor of whether their food was nice or purposely poisoned with masses of garlic to keep Scarlet away. Stank.
“Grazie.” The one host smiles at the pair of women, receiving grins back. “Anywho, follow me through.”
As Fantasia toured the ground floor of the house, almost as if it were her first time too, stumbling into rooms left right and centre, she attempted to show the contestants what the rooms were. Pointing to the left, she showed the entrance to the living room. A rather vast room, walls still exposed brick with flooring that had been stained by random varnishes over time. Furniture carelessly placed but in a manner which was still logical, a vintage sofa and several arm chairs loitered near a television. Books too. Lot’s of books.
Pointing to the right, she directed their attention to the hobbit entrance of spiral stairs that would lead to an attic-like room. ‘Very dusty, probably hasn’t been touched for some years’, she’d explain to them.
This continuous motion of striking arms left to right, articulating her index finger to reveal every door as if they were hidden secrets of a biblical passage or tomb of an undiscovered pharaoh, almost became a dance. With each room shown was a circulation of whispers or laughs, whether or not Fantasia was cracking jokes, someone had made a fart joke from the creaking of the floorboards or someone had tripped was unsure. The noise itself had become replaced by blessing of piano instrumental, playing to the tunes of Sebastian Bach, maybe someone had took pleasure in greeting the contestants by sharing the acoustics from the grand piano in the living room. Piano notes floated through the house as if they were a siren call, the competitors soon turning into black-matter silhouettes that, when returning on screen, were visible again, only in their dimly illuminated bedrooms.
“This is crazy.”
Fantasia liked to keep the windows and shutters open wide in the evening, with just the swelling sheer curtains between us and life beyond, because it was a crime to block the art of a thousand shooting stars from scattering not just amongst the sky, but the walls of the bedrooms, against each crevice in the walls and illuminating each golden embellishment in the books. A kaleidoscope of galaxies that felt like they were from hands reach, only to be a million light years away.
“You really went all out with this one-” Bella removes her Louboutins, sitting on the edge of the bed, throwing them over her shoulder onto the pillows “-I can already see it in the episode.”
“See what?”
“The descriptive details of everything. You know, the stars glisten in mournful sorrow for the sun that once was.”
“You do realise these episodes are filmed, no? That’s why there’s a camera following us for every inch of this house.”
A cameraman, almost unnoticeable, blends into the shadows in the farthest corner from where she stood. The lens was the only prominent sighting, the light of night forming a white flare on the glass that, when caught by the other cameras, spread across the screen - as if when it no longer obscured the scene, we’d be transitioned to an entirely different world.
In fact, something did change. No, we did not enter an alternate galaxy or timeline, but once the flare had truly disappeared, so did the bedroom. Instead the dining room was in place, each of the contestants around the dining table on the patio outside. Nothing was to illuminate the area other than the supremacy of peak moonlight and a course of fairy lights entangled in the wall flowers.
A distant hand continued to play the piano, alternating from their index finger to their next two fingers, crossing their thumb over and then continuing the same motion to whatever notes were the key to producing such beautiful music. It was still kept to the acoustics of the background, the gentle rattle of cicadas more noticeable, as well as the lone, empty seat in the corner of the table.
“I hope you like the place, because we’re going to be here for a while.”
Fantasia dabs her mouth with a napkin, placing it back on her lap and continuing to prod her fork into the food before her, knowing several glances had just been fired her way.
“I mean, we could’ve gone to Paris, bu-”
“It’s stunning.”
Aurora kicks Scarlet under the table, interrupting her with pleasant compliments of the new home. Partially to save face for her fellow queen, but also as to say ‘it’s not going to happen, so let it go’. Not that it was that serious, if anything it was an ongoing joke.
Or at least she thought she had kicked Scarlet, the sudden touch of gummy fangs that felt more like a kiss was felt on her foot. Bella, not the human, the dog, clearly had been scavangening for whatever food was dropped under the table. Now the bitch had got a nasty taste in her mouth from that foot.
[AURORA]: If I end up having to leave the competition due to a medical diagnosis of rabies then you may want to blame the dog. Or even Vienna, who was eating like a ferrel, rabid rat at the end of the table. The way she bit that food…
She was right. Vienna, who was bent over like she was possessed, slurped up every last strand of her food. Then vacuumed the bits off the plate. It was only half an hour later when she came up for air had she noticed the empty seat beside her.
“It’s unlike me to announce the challenge at such a weird time of day, but you may want to film one of your floorshows in the nighttime, so here goes.”
Fantasia had drawn Vienna’s attention back, as well as the other ghouls.
“This week, you will be doing the ball challenge. We have came to such a beautiful area, not only for my own pleasures, but for you to use as an environment for this weeks ball categories. As you know, you have all been critiqued on needing to use more figurative language, expanding your concepts to be more ambitious and doing more glamour than just rhinestones, more filth than just cuts and blood and more horror than… what you’re currently showing a lack of.”
Scarlet, the resident vampire queen of the season, blushed slightly. For someone who was metaphorically dead should be excelling at such, and had a lot to answer for. Well, she didn’t. But that’s what her paranoia had called for.
“You must all create outstanding floorshows that accommodate the themes of…
these themes seem to be quite fantasy based, although I do not want to see anyone to rely on simple witches, trolls, your classic evil queen, anything of the sort. This challenge will test your creativity, those with the most ambitious concepts that exemplify the cores and are executed the most beautifully - with some use of figurative language will succeed. The ones that continue to deem cuts and blood as proper demonstration of filth, a rhinestoned gown with little further detail to be a showcase of filth, and horror to simply be dead bodies will be in jeopardy.”
The postprandial torpor seemed to last forever that night, little action or momentum from the contestants who had pleasantly found comfort with how much delicacies they had indulge themselves in. However, not all stomachs were to rest.
The day had already reached the darkest hour, yet not all beautiful sights had been cloaked; through the aged glass panes of the window, one could see what - at first - appeared to be the Last Supper mural by Da Vinci. Only that when the camera had moved into the comfort of the candle-lit interior it had been a mock up, consisting of bloated queens around a table piled to the brim of makeup.
Walls that were undeniably unkempt with chipped paint of all sorts that had the ability to convince those nestled within their enclosure that it had been an aesthetic choice, but did a story these fine grains of plaster and feeble floorboards have to tell. One observing both the exterior and interior of this famous manor and it’s heavenly surroundings would only fantasize about how it may have been home to a queen many centuries ago, although never considered the true reality of having belonged to a lineage of criminals.
How did it get into Fantasia’s hands? That’s anyones question. Although, the real question on everybody’s minds were why there were only five queens in this replacement boudoir room.
ALFONSI MANOR WEEK 4
“I wonder how Amelia’s doing…”
Scarlet places down her pen and rubs her eyes, staring at the others momentarily with her chin resting in the palm of her hand. Her elbow would leave an imprint in the olive velvet inlay of the armchair that she sat on, to which she’d find joy in contorting through many thorough swipes of her index finger.
If you’re questioning why such focus was placed on minor detail; nothing else was to be said. In fact, the others had not yet said anything. A deathly silence had only meant that the queens absence was to and part due to something serious. Scarlet did not ask a question either. Had she truly wanted to start a conversation, something way that was fueled with more spontaneity and less concern would have been needed to break the calm ambience. The fire crackles and ushers a few embers, though the only response she was to receive.
“I hope she’s fine and gets through whatever is happening at home-” Satina conjures a plume of crimson pigment from tapping her eyeshadow brush “- she’s a great contestant and an even greater friend.”
“One of us could still go home, if she doesn’t return she’ll be sent straight to the bottom, but that doesn’t mean to say we’re all safe.”
Vienna contributes. Not necessarily the best timing apparently, a slight stern look from Satina and the others mute; unsure in which way to interpret what she had just said.
“I haven’t been thinking of the benefit if she did go home by the way, I just meant to say as we’re yet to discuss the upcoming elimination. Whoever wins is choosing, and it’s going to be hard to choose regardless of Amelia’s dismissal or not.”
The focus shifts from the side shot of Vienna’s face to Leviathan, sat beside her, who, although had kept relatively quiet, nodded in agreement.
[LEVIATHAN]: I want to win this challenge. I’ve been letting myself get stressed out over not placing as well as I would have hoped, but going into this challenge all pressure is off. I want to succeed, and I’m going to have fun.
“I’m more concerned about that empty seat.”
She, Levi, reminds the rest. With many things to worry about, an empty seat at a feast in Italy, where food from home may go to waste, had been the most concerning. When most families declare ‘mangiamo!’ at the start of their dinners to commence the celebration of their taste buds, they mean it. Of course, Leviathan wasn’t Italian, but she was used to Dragula dinners. Leave any food, you get your hand chopped off.
“What chair?”
“The one which we all talked about earlier, Scarlet. Fat bitch was too into her food to even notice it.”
“You’re right. A win has a lot of calories, I’ve had two of them.”
Levi throws a nearby sponge applicator across the room at Scarlet, the two laughing as they jokingly bicker amongst themselves. Aurora is seen dodging each item thrown as she sits in the crossfire, as if they were Fantasia’s messages. She may still be in the competition, but you know that bitch is reciting the lyrics to wicked in her head. That or she’s entertaining herself with the memory of Diana getting hit by a car pre-shift at McDonalds. Who knows?
We could do a complete psychoanalysis on her thoughts, but we’d rather not. Time was passing, but for these ghouls, a long early morning of floorshow filming was ahead. Luckily for you and me, we can skip ahead a few hours. Cue one of those cliche panning montages of the house with a momentary time lapse in the back.
The outdoor patio that overlooked a view of the sea had been blessed by the touch of a gay; raised insfrastructure of grey slate panels constructed a T-shape stage with a copper metal work frame strung with spotlights. Each one lit the stage with their own neon hue, although predominantly a blend of lavender and blues, as not to harm the eyes of the contestants -
ALFONSI STAGE WEEK 4
- who were already lined up at the front, standing in whatever category floorshow look they had last filmed. Some looking like deranged mental institute escapees, others appearing like rip-off Carries, some in inesplicable SFX.
The panel began to illuminate, secreting a white effervescence that illuminated the nearby area. Nothing too close was worth noticing, all of the flora too distant to showcase their beauty, instead remaining as lingering shadows that watch in fright. And so they should, a cacophony of heels clicking against stone pavements heard. They knew by now what this meant, the arrival of Fantasia, but these steps sounded different. The host herself had a modelesque stride to her walk, but the other series of steps had a deep, stomp-like intonation.
A plethora of black chiffon swept across the lens, all obscured but the crimson glisten of rubies which, with many other jewels and glass pieces, formed a mosaic of hearts and otherwise angelic embroidery on the back of Fantasia’s black jacket. The fabric of which had a denim appeal, but the ruching on the sleeves that draped excessively around her arms prior to rejoicing at the cuffs were as smooth as silk. Two completely adverse fabrics, but in the darkness of the night, the black material was undisguisable regardless.
Beneath this jacket was a minimalistic, low v-cut, obsidian jumpsuit of sorts. The intention of this neckline was not to expose cleavage, but rather to allow more space for decoration, her skin emblazoned with piercings of jewels which resemble similar murals to those on her jacket. Again, these were seen pinned into her matching beret, her hair set into a pixie-cut with baby hair curls glued to her temples. Matching jewel tone pigments caressed her lids in an outwards gradient with sparse application of red glitter, loose granules all over her face, almost as if a splatter of blood had landed and she need not wipe it off.
The suspense of who the other queen may be was diminished almost instantly, having made her way over to the second throne already, Smacahoe had taken her seat. A menacing grin forms on her face, the season two winner and season four cohost ready for action.
“Welcome Ghouls to the fourth panel of the season. Today Bella had… duties in the local town, and so she is absent from judging tonight. As punishment, she will be ordered to wait 5 more months before she can receive her crown.” Fantasia now places herself into the center chair, besides Smacahoe. “Smacahoe is here in her place, and we are also joined by…”
Indigo Child appears out of the shadows of backstage. The lights flare and he is bathed in several red spotlights.
Indigo is dressed devilishly. He is wearing a skin tight, blood red suit dripping in purple rhinestones. There is no undershirt with the suit, instead one can see the buff, bare chest of Indigo, which is also adorned with an upside down cross. This cross is made of glass with a small internal flame burning a bright orange color.
It casts a faint upward glow against his face, giving his eyelids a shadowy look to them. The fire is not the only thing making Indigo’s eyes look shadowy, his eye makeup resembles that of great punk rocker, with smeared, smokey eyeshadow taking up his whole eye socket. His eyes have red contact lenses in them. His cheeks are painted to look gaunt and skeletal.
Protruding from his forehead is a pair of young deer antlers, which are both heavily stained with dark maroon blood on the tips. They appear to be painfully growing out of Indigo’s skull. Fortunately, his well kept blonde hair is not disturbed by the antlers, it is instead swept back in crisp waves. It also appears that he has shaved off his precious eyebrows.
Each of his hands are painted with blood and bear the symbol of the Leviathan cross. He drips as he stands still.
Indigo’s blood red pants cling to his tight ass and draw the eye to his red velvet loafers, which are also adorned with purple jewels. He throws his hands to sky and flashing a blinding smile to the stage.
“Come hell or highwater, your purple reign prince is back!”
The queens made way for Indigo to step off the stage, applauding his entrance. The king of season three had definitely made his return. Now at the panel-
“I want to thank my drag brother Landon Cider for pushing boundaries out in the real world, you inspire me everyday man! Without you, I’m not sure I would be here right now on this stage. I also want to thank Dragula, both real life and online, for being such an open show for all kinds of drag artists.”
- he greets himself to all.
“As great as it is to celebrate having these two back to judge, we must roll on with the critiques. As a reminder, we remember your performance, not your placement. Whether you won the challenge or were a bottom placement, we believe you all exceeded expectations this week, and I will not remember any of these as being bad. Now, to the gates of hell.”

Critiques had been going for some time, as signified by the topaz tones of sunset which were now mute, also suggested by the variating expressions of worry amongst the contestants faces.
Amelia, we hope and wish that whatever you’re going through at home gets better. Due to your unfortunate circumstance, you will automatically place bottom this week, but it is the challenge winners choice on who goes home.”
She nods.
Leviathan, this week you gave me something to worry about. That is having nightmares after reading your floorshows, only how much you have improved is a dream I hope we keep reliving. I think we have a silent assassin on our hands. You’re safe, good work this week.”
Levi smiles, patting the back of Vienna before heading off the stage. The nearest spotlight to her spot dims.
Scarlet Venom, you always go for the jugular, even if that desire for blood may need some control, your fangs are sharper than ever. Vienna Sausage, this has been your best week yet, and I’m just screaming to see more…”

Scarlet Venom, congratulations, you’re the winner of this weeks challenge.”
No, we were not on Platform 13, but the blood rushed to her head as fast as the tube train would have sped by back home. Relief and shock.
[SCARLET VENOM]: I honestly thought I was either high or safe for this challenge, I’m ecstatic. Take another bite of this peach.
“Time in this competition is short. This week we debated heavily to ourselves and with each other about who should win. There will still be many more chances to win a challenge, more than you may even know, but this week we did come to one unanimous agreement as a panel. Vienna Sausage you are also the winner of this weeks challenge.”
Nothing, not a single bell, lightning strike or clap of thunder could have made this anymore dramatic. I mean, that’s quite cliche, but for added effect. Vienna had clasped her mouth in shock, the last remaining spotlights.
“Congrats.”
Scarlet whispers to her whilst they hug.
[VIENNA SAUSAGE]: My first win! A few episodes ago I was saying how I was waiting for Scarlet to trip up. Now I’m besides her winning the same challenge. We’ll see how this one turns out.
“Double wins are controversial; sometimes deemed as a product of indecisiveness from the judges. In fact, we made our minds this week. It was only when in discussion post rankings that we concluded how both of you had what the other needed. Scarlet, you ought to mediate more like Vienna had, whilst Vienna, you should focus further on description in a similar manner to Scarlet than scene-like detail. Everyone in this top 3 tonight had great submissions, and as we’ve always said, we remember your performance, not what’s on the spreadsheet. Props to all of you.”
The pair smile in response to their praise, leaving the stage after being dismissed. Focus cuts back to the remaining 3 ghouls.
Satina, you’re improving, greatly, and we’re so proud to see it. However conceptually you were outshone this week. Aurora, you are improving, and we are no less proud, but some critiques continue to pertain to you - week after week…”

Aurora, I am sorry my ghoul, but you are also up for extermination. That means, Satina, you are safe.”
Both queens sighed, although one full of relief and the other full of desperation to be saved from the chaos she was soon to endure. Satina looks over to her fellow competitor and nods with support before departing the front of the stage.
“Aurora, Amelia, you are the bottom two of the week. No one deserves this, but the competition has to go on. Soon, Scarlet Venom and Vienna Sausage will unanimously decide which one contestant will be exterminated from the competition. I ask of them to talk to each of you individually, take into account critiques and prior performance, if they may.” Fantasia’s eyes glisten as they shift from the bottom to the top queens. “The elimination will be announced on this mainstage, and the respective extermination sequence will concur in the next episode. Good luck.”
OG Host Comment: I’m so sorry with how rushed this second part feels. We have been swapping computers consistently for whatever reason - out of my hands - and so all prior work I had saved has pretty much gone. I still have aspects to prior episodes and important documents, but not the work I had done weeks in advance for the results part of this. I will edit it prior to postage outside of sequester. Congratulations to all of you, especially Scarlet, Vienna and Leviathan for top 3. This was one of the first challenges in a long time where everyone performed excessively well and took great leaps in improvement. I still do not know who is going to win. I never usually do, we’ve all seen season one of RD. Good luck to Aurora and Amelia! Winners of this weeks challenge, please issue chats to the contestants and discuss amongst yourselves who you choose to go home.
This episode was written so descriptively as I was simply inspired at the time. I also was expecting an immense level of creativity from the ball submissions and so the episode ought to have inspired them.

2019.12.30 19:21 fractalfay Robbie, you got to sex your girl bro: a fan fiction recap of 90DF S07E09

Fellow garbage huffers, are you ready to stagger into 2020 with a face-first fall into this shit-pit? It’s so warm in here!
We pick up with Anna and Mursel in the midst of an intimate translator app cryversation. Mursel says that as a man pretending to be 38, he has no choice but to run back to his family in Turkey, now that they finally know what Mursel has always known: Anna has bred. This could have been addressed thousands of dollars ago, but logic is not currency between these two. Leo pretends to be upset because he knows that’s how to stay mom’s favorite.
Leo thinks Mursel should tell his family in his strongest big-boy voice, "I can be a grown up, I can manly do things." No word on whether that should be communicated via translator app or with actual talking.
Anna seizes this opportunity to make Mursel feel worse. "You're breaking a child's heart!" Oh, fuck you right in the honey hole, Anna, with this ridiculous manipulative bullshit. Dragging your children into it isn’t going to factor in to a decision that was made before his plane landed.
Anna also breaks the news to Gino and her mother, who has a lightning fast draw on the I Told You So. Gino says he doesn't know what to think, because he was all psyched up to resent someone new, and now the moving target is bouncing right out of the frame. This isn’t nearly dramatic enough for Anna, who knows, thanks to Vampire Diaries, that this needs to be dragged out at least four more episodes, or until a fresh character with a mysterious accent is introduced.
She picks Joey up from band practice, and pulls into a parking lot known for it’s hasty body disposal possibilities, or doing the BJ for real. Joe asks if Mursel's going back to Turkey, and Anna explains the first stop is a hotel with WiFi, where he’ll anchor before being assailed by a tsunami of text messages. Joey is confused about why his mom is so mad at Mursel, and why Mursel can’t just ignore the needs of his family like Anna does.
“I’m annoyed that she had to put us through this,” Joey says. “But 90DF put me in touch with like, a lot of kids.”
“Yes, we’ve established an extensive network of children that have had to tolerate their parents prolonged adolescence broadcast on international television,” Max explains. “We’re active in several states, with our central office based in Connecticut, the 90 Day Fiancé stronghold.” Max uses a laser pointer to circle CT on a pull-down map of the US of A. “CeCe and I take on the bulk of the responsibilities for the central office, which is not to diminish the contributions of Darcey’s children, who have been working hard since their mother’s inaugural season of Before the 90 Days.”
“This is starting to seem kinda lame,” Joey is in a band.
“That’s not a very productive point of view,” CeCe interjects. “But let’s unpack the emotions behind that statement, and see if we can redirect that anger towards something more creative.”
Joey’s ongoing dislike of Mursel creates the opportunity for Anna to be mad at her son for her own shitty relationship choices; this misdirected resentment will likely percolate to the surface several times a year, until Anna isolates her next romantic victim, or until Joey’s band revives early 90s grunge with all its overt screw-you-mom lyrical stylings.
Later on, Mursel is in his hotel, fighting an awkward battle with his strangulating man-purse. He says he doesn't want to marry a Turkish girl, but he's the only son in the family, and he’s pretty sure fake-forty is going to be the year a Turkish marriage happens. Anna messages him to call him weak, which is part of her plan to prolong this break-up for at least sixty days, or until she can roll her rage over into being appalled that he’s moved on. Mursel texts that he wants to see her, she says no. He calls her, and Anna says she doesn't like him, and that she and Leo are both very sad and enrolled in the same kindergarten class. Some dramatic kneeling beside the bed happens, proving that Anna is the first person to touch his penis. Then he declares his need to see her and “hold her hair” one last time.
“Well, she could always give you a lock or two to-go,” Paul pipes in with ideas.
In Georgia, Angela declares that she’s been a hot mess since...I’m just gonna stop right there. She bursts into the office of a folksy lawyer who is apparently used to her. He notes the duo hasn’t received a formal K1 denial yet, and breaks down the appeal process, which involves clarifying that Angela is, in fact, a tax payer. 60% of appeals lead to a visa, and they have a good chance thanks to evidence that they fall asleep on the phone, but this tacks on another 6 months of time for Angela to milk an assortment of 90DF shows. Are you sure the producers had nothing to do with this? I see you, TLC.
"Quit protecting people who don't want to be protected,” Angela declares. “Don’t make me rage tweet line 39 of my 1040 long form.”
No matter what, Angela is facing another year to 18 months, and the timeline won’t change if they wed in Nigeria. Pretty sure 56 isn’t ideal egg-toting age, but neither is 54, and this does nothing to slow the planned chicken-house raid of Skylar’s ovaries.
Angela gets 90DF to pay for another flight to Nigeria to comfort Michael (well played). The grandchildren scatter when she can't find her passport. Did she look in her Swiss Army bra, where everything else is? She declares that there’s VooDoo working against her, so she’s going to reverse this curse with the unparalleled power of Takis. Skylar is worried about her mom being impulsive and marrying Michael in Nigeria. It’s impossible to have two weddings, after all, and if this isn’t dragged out Angela will never squeak out more seasons than Nicole managed without getting married, and I’ll lose my $30 in the betting pool.
For his part, Michael goes to see an immigration lawyer who can talk without moving her mouth. Her advice is to apply for the K3, or a spousal visa, which is different from the advice offered by Angela's lawyer. Is that a shout-heavy conflict looming on the horizon? Must be a day that ends in y, just like this romance.
Meanwhile, fake couple Jasmin and Blake still exist, which means Jasmin hangs out with Blake's mom, and looks forward to that mythical moment in the future when Blake conjures enough cash for a room of their own. Mother Blake is cooking Caribbean food and Jasmin is tasked with helping her. She declares that since she’s a stereotype of bleachy whiteness, she’s not used to using spices or experiencing flavor.
“My mother kept all our spices in the salt shaker,” she explains.
Mother Fractalfay: “I hope it’s not garlic salt. That’s SPICY!”
Mother Blake probes Jasmin so she can get a read on what her ambitions are, exactly, and Jasmin explains that post 90DF it’s all about the instagram. Besides, since working is impossible for her until her green card is approved, she has time to figure it out. Mother Blake, who is used to her son’s level of money harvesting success, expresses concern, while Jasmin suffers through the arduous task of chopping onions.
“They're going to have to pay bills once I stop paying them,” Mother Blake explains. “And WTF, it’s an onion. Put some sunglasses on and chop the damn thing!”
“Cut it on the bias!” Darcey chimes in.
Inexplicably, Mother Blake chases her money management concern with questions about their financial readiness for a wedding. Jasmin envisions something quick and easy, like a courtroom affair with just the two of them. You know, something that makes sense when you have no money and your marriage is a sham. Mother Blake has her mind on an event that requires international cash contributions for a ceremony that will include none of Jasmin’s family.
Jasmin then says she’s looking forward to the parents moving out of their own home, and I can’t tell if Jasmin needs someone to explain things with charts and graphs, or if Blake has given her a very wrong impression about his stake in the family home.
Over in 90DF Champion State Connecticut, hostage Syngin is allowed out of his shack as part of a work-release program, so he goes to see Tania's sister Tiana and her husband for help plotting the quickest route to the airport. They welcome him to a house of total chaos, which is the gold standard new parent home, or a monument to crippling depression. One of us! One of us! Tiana sympathizes with Syngin’s struggles to escape the toxic orbit of his intended bride.
"It seems really rude to ditch him and then ignore his phone calls. She does that constantly though," Tiana explains. “Basically, she’s been annoying as fuck her whole life.”
“I was single six years by choice!” Tania reminds her.
“Yeah, no one believes that,” Tiana corrects.
Syngin is equally worried that other people will interpret Tania's flirting as flirting. So he decides to call her, even though he knows she just went out, and no one likes to be drawn from a dance floor to comfort the fiancé they abandoned so 90DF could pay for a flight to Costa Rica.
Tania is busy groping her salsa teacher, which is a great way to learn about herbs from native people like she’s waited to for SO LONG. Concerned parent Syngin calls in for his semi-hourly abuse, and Tania delivers, because if the whole world flooded she would still be Fucking Tania. A phone call is more commitment than she can give, but he's supposed to be ready for a child four hours after his plane lands in JFK. Syngin rightly points out she hasn't changed much about her life at all.
“Not at all,” Tiana adds. “You should have seen her when we had to share toys. I didn’t know dolls could get drunk to numb the pain. Then she just left them in the middle of the living room floor for our mother to step on.”
75 solid minutes of commercials later, we re-enter the terrordome of Robert's wretched edit. He’s still upset with Anny for having free will and a pulse. Since 90DF’s camera people threatened to quit if they had to continue following Robert as he introduces every facet of his life with disappointment, they’ve flown in Sister Robin to restore their spirits.
“She sometimes gets on my nerves,” Robert Roberts. “But she’s my little sister and I love her. Except when I don’t.”
Anny and Robin have talked on Whatsapp but haven't met in person yet, and Anny is excited to meet someone she doesn’t have to take care of. After Robert picks her up at the airport he tells Robin that he doesn’t know when he and Anny are getting married, because now that she’s here he suddenly needs to think things through. Not before he forced his child to share a bed with a stranger, but after she wanted the apartment he promised. Robin says Robert always picks the wrong one, because he's Mr. Right for plenty of people in comas.
Bryson greets Robin and admits he's being good today and only today, which is also how I introduce myself to biological relations. Robin and Anny talk, and Anny explains that Robert promised her the sun and stars and then Colted on all his promises. Robin thinks Anny’s expectations are too high, and totally ignores the part where Robert is responsible for creating said high expectations. Anny also clarifies that she wants sex every day, sometimes three times a day. Robin is willing to offer insight about this dilemma, too.
"Robbie, you got to sex your girl bro." NEW FLAIR!
Now that sexual coaching is underway, Robin and Anny go to look at wedding dresses Anny can't afford, carrying on the tradition established when she looked at two-bedroom apartments. Robin encourages her to be realistic, and to not try on an expensive dress, which seems smart. They tuck a few dresses into a fitting room, and then the curtain is drawn so that Anny can have her second sex of the day with the sales woman on the other side.
The first dress is rumpled from the gymnastics of their sexcapade, and is a no. The second dress is Anny’s style and she likes how it shows off her figure. Then Anny gets teary-eyed because Robin is the first person who has been nice to her since that airplane stewardess asked what kind of drink she wanted. Robin tells her not to cry, and Anny laughs about the veil since she's not a virgin, which has never stopped anyone else on this show from taking their tenth fall down the aisle in a fluffy nightmare of white.
In Ukraine, Mike and Natalie are still struggling their way through this visit. Mike goes to the embassy to get an update on the K1’s status, since the delay can’t possibly have anything to do with every nightly news headline, or Mike’s precarious financial situation, or roommate Uncle Bojangle’s multi-state crime spree. 90DF is trapped outside the embassy, leaving the camera folks no choice but to film a Child Army stomping by in uniform, which is still better than filming Robert drive for Lyft.
When Mike emerges he says he was told the info related to their delay is classified, and they're still investigating their application. Mike takes this as a signal to activate his go-go-gadget investigative skills, especially since it comes with the unexpected perk of alienating his fiancé.
“Rebecca, PI here,” Rebecca interjects. “I’ll go ahead and leave my card in case you need one of those international background checks.”
He and Natalie duck into a café where Mike recklessly orders an Americano with milk and sugar, which is two steps away from the perils of a latte, and if he wants to sully a perfectly good espresso shot that's on him. He asks if she’s hiding anything or has applied for a K1 before, and I’m wondering if she’s still legally married to her ex husband. This line of questioning does not go over well, which doesn’t stop him from asking the same set of questions a second time. This is a dick move, unless she’s done something specific to inspire such distrust. She disappears to the bathroom to punch the air dryer, then returns, and when she does he apologizes while insisting he had to ask this thing he didn’t have to ask.
In Indiana, Sasha is getting faced with Karen and Betsy so they can interrogate him about his punchcard of marriages. They ask about his wedding plans, and Karen clarifies that Emily just wants a small wedding with family. Sasha says he doesn’t think it'll be possible for his family to come, but they'll catch the next one, so it’s fine.
After Sasha declares that Emily is the first fiance his parents have liked, Ace Detective Drunk Betsy is on the case. "Do they love her because she's American?"
Sasha: Yes, it helps that they usually don’t understand her.
Betsy: Did your EX-WIVES, PLURAL, get pregnant BEFORE marriage each time, more than one?
Sasha: Yes, they get pregnant, not me, but third time is charm.
Betsy: I don’t like you.
Sasha: I am beginning to see that you do not like me.
Mother Karen, the family diplomat, doesn't care about Sasha’s past, she cares about how he is now and how he treats her daughter, which is remarkably fair for this tantrum-prone tv show, and for the name Karen. Mom doesn't want to offend Sasha, but Betsy does, so let’s refill that wine glass and slosh it all over the table.
Betsy: Do you know what wedding vows are?
Sasha: Theoretically, yes.
Betsy: They’re a PROMISE. Do you make PROMISES, Sasha?
Sasha: Look, Russia does not have stellar 50% marriage success rate like America, but what can I say? The girls, they jump on my penis.
Betsy: I’m going to DESTROY this bottle of wine.
Sasha: Is lot of calories, but sure, you’re going to do that.
Betsy: Emily's expiration date is coming up, isn’t it?
Sasha: Your cereal, it will also expire.
Betsy: Say something else about my cereal, bitch, and I’ll corn pop you.
Emily has stress-whitened her hair and adopted a daring new part, and Sasha is throwing out snack food in a scene that totally isn't staged. David blows a raspberry, proving the kid is the best person in this relationship. Betsy tries her best to sabotage Emily, by insisting the garbage she bought is for her, because you need plenty of Twizzlers and vegetables beaten into submission to feed a baby.
Betsy: You're just shaming her for her weight gain.
Sasha: Yes.
Betsy: You can’t throw away food when you’re poor! You have to eat the expired jello donated to food banks!
Sasha: That food belongs in trash.
Betsy: You deserve the trash.
Sasha: No, you are one that is trash.
Betsy: No, YOU are.
David: (raspberry noise)
David retreats to his second-floor cell, while Emily says she knows that Sasha throwing out the deep-friend corn vegetables is bad, but he's been in an awful mood since he had to cut his work-outs to three hours a day, as opposed to that great mood he's been in never.
Unpopular opinion: I'd be taking advantage of having a trainer in the house, and would buy whatever he wanted if he was doing the cooking. Also, fuck, you can go to a gym and have someone correct your form for free? I have to switch gyms repeatedly to get that type of personal trainer attention. She could educate him about how fitness and thinness are not the same thing, by embracing her health while staying herself. Why not? How is junk food the hill to die on?
“Unless it’s VooDoo stopping Takis,” Angela clarifies. “Now, that’s a hill.”
Next week, Angela wants to storm the US Embassy to shout Michael into a visa. Emily says they should get married ASAP for financial purposes, which fails to inspire a surge of joy from flatline Sasha. 90DF finally exposes us to Blake's music, so we know why we’re actually watching these two. Anny continues to be attacked by the trash heap Robert surrounds himself with, Mike and Natalie continue to give their relationship a toilet swirlie, Syngin is starting to get a funny feeling that Tania sucks, and the slow downhill roll of Mursel and Anna continues. Hopefully this takes a Twilight Zone turn and both are absorbed into the hive to scream soundlessly from the honeycomb.

2019.12.15 21:06 spidergeek69 Aladdin: Through The Eyes of a skeptic

Disney has made some of the greatest cinematic masterpieces of all time. Arguably, the pivotal point in their history was a time period between 1989 and 1999, dubbed “the Disney Renaissance”. It was when Disney’s hand-drawn animation department really hit its peak with movies like Hercules and The Lion King. One of the best works that Disney ever produced came out on November 11, 1992, Aladdin. A movie praised for its engaging music, beautiful animation, and for the amazing voice work of the immortal Robin Williams. Like most movies, it received its fair share of fan theories, the most popular of which is the villain being the good guy. This is a common assumption is when you question the motivation of the characters in any story, but I believe the theory holds water in this Disney classic. All you must do is look at three people: Aladdin, Jafar, and the Sultan. Speaking of motivations, let’s talk about the character Aladdin. In the film, he is the protagonist and he is called multiple times by the movie “a diamond in the rough”. This implies that the writers are pushing him to show that people are more that what they seem, and they implant this thought early on in the movie so you will see for the rest of the movie from a certain view point. Let me ask you this: what if you took Aladdin out of this perspective? What if the movie was not named after him? What would you think then? Since actions speak louder than words, let’s look at his actions throughout the film. When we meet Aladdin, he is running away from the guards because he stole a loaf of bread. Now the writers work in a song that justifies why he is stealing it as the lyrics say ‘’ Gotta keep One jump ahead of the breadline One swing ahead of the sword I steal only what I can't afford (That's Everything!)”. He says that he only steals what he can’t afford. The question is why he can’t afford it. You’re probably saying “well, it’s because he is an orphan and is too young to work”, and to that I say you are wrong. Canonically, Aladdin is 18 at the time of the movie which makes him an adult, which means he could have been working for his bread. The fact that the movie is settled in the middle east makes his excuses even worse due to legal and cultural changes. In Saudi Arabia you are considered an adult at the age of 15, which mean that the working age is also 15, which means that time Aladdin could have been working hard as a merchant or some other job to support his bread eating needs. This is also supported by the story the movie was based on, “Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp”, where in this telling of the story Aladdin is a lazy bum who still lives with his mother. Want more proof of his wrong doings, well, if we look later in the movie, we see Aladdin at the marketplace getting on with his stealing for the day, when he spots a rounded piece of turquoise. You thought I was going to say Jasmine didn’t you. If you replay this scene you see that Aladdin does not notice Jasmine until she bumps into someone and her hood comes off, revealing her sign of royalty, the turquoise. When describing her to the genie later in the film Aladdin has nothing specific to say about her, he just rounds the usual bases. If you’re a guy who’s ever been in pure lust mode, you know what I’m talking about. If your friend asks you what you like about a girl you lust over, but you don’t know anything about you automatically say she smart, fun, she has beautiful hair or great eyes. What does Aladdin say well let’s take a couple lines from the script. “ALADDIN: Oh, but Genie. She's smart and fun and... GENIE: Pretty? ALADDIN: Beautiful. She's got these eyes that just...and this hair, wow...and her smile.” Any of that sound familiar. All he saw was, her figure, maybe, but, without a doubt, the turquois on her head. Even if any of this is wrong, let’s look at what he does next. When she gets in trouble, he saves her by tricking the merchant. After that he take her to the roof tops to show her around town. They start talking and she makes the mistake of telling him that she is a runaway. You’re probably wondering “why was this a mistake?” Well I’ll tell you why, reading through some laws and some pages of middle eastern culture in preparation for this theory, I stumbled upon this quote “Runaways are often kidnapped and forced into prostitution.” Now imagine you’re Aladdin, a bum just looking for an easy way to make some money, when suddenly, a naive 15-year-old girl gets into some trouble. You see your chance to get it in good with this attractive female, so you save her life hoping to get something in return. So, you take her back to your place to get your “reward”, when she tells you that she is a runaway, in other words she has nowhere to go and no way to support herself. What better way than to become her pimp? It’s easy money and she will do anything you ask since you just saved her life. For more proof on how easy this would be, think about the most memorable thing, to Jasmine anyway, Aladdin says to Jasmine. “do you trust me?” and what is her answer every time, “yes”. And wouldn’t you know it that is what is implied in the movie, of course Disney can’t show it, this is a G-rated movie after all, but imagine if the guards hadn’t found them. What might have happened?
Now that we have proven to, at least to a small degree, that Aladdin isn’t the good guy that the movie would want you see him as, let’s talk about the man of the hour, Jafar. A person so recognizable that the first thing you think of when I say his name is that “twisted” beard he sports along side a snake staff that clearly points him out as the bad guy. Although, judging him like this makes you a hypocrite, as the whole point of the movie is that people are much more than they seem. To get to the root of Jafar’s motives we must first look at another character, the sultan. The sultan is what we in the theory world call a certified jester. This man is clearly unfit to run a country, he leaves everything to someone else. If you look at the movie, almost every scene he is in, he is playing with some sort of toy whether it be a model of Agrabah, or an Eiffel tower made of tiny plastic giraffes. It’s not like he is just doing this in his spare time, he literally doesn’t know that laws of his own country. Want proof, if you go to the scene just before the P¬¬¬rince Ali parade, Jafar comes into the throne room claiming that he has the solution to the suitor problem. We are going to take a few lines from the script but pay attention to the sultan’s reaction. “JAFAR: Not to worry, my liege. There is more. If, in the event a suitable prince cannot be found, a princess must then be wed to...hmm...interesting. SULTAN: What? Who? JAFAR: The royal vizier! Why, that would be...me! SULTAN: Why, I thought the law says that only a prince can marry a princess, I'm quite sure.” He the proceeds to check the scroll, but that begs the question, shouldn’t he already now this? I mean this mean one of two things. One, Jafar is telling the truth, but he doesn’t know, or two, Jafar is lying and he can’t tell the difference because, once again, he still doesn’t know. Chances are the sultan doesn’t even know what goes on beyond the palace walls. I mean he could be a heartless dictator who doesn’t care about his citizens, but that is very unlikely. If we look at the ending of the movie, we see Aladdin about to leave the castle forever when the sultan realizes that he can change the laws by saying “Well, am I sultan or am I sultan? From this day forth, the princess shall marry whomever she deems worthy.” If he is just now realizing this then I highly doubt that he rules like a dictator. No, he just does whatever others tell him and signs whatever needs signing. He is a figure head and that is why he has no clue what is going on outside the palace walls. Now, getting back to Jafar let’s get his point of view on the issue. Sure, at first, he may seem like the bad guy of the story but picture this. You are the second in command of a failing kingdom and as second in command you can clearly see that the sultan is not doing his job. You see that your boss is doing nothing all day but playing with toys and messing with his models. As the sultan has charged you with keeping peace in Aragrabah you, much like Buddah, leave the palace walls to go see how to kingdom is holding up. What you see is not what expected, you see a country in poverty. The poor stealing from the poor, children getting food out of the garbage, an economy on the brink of collapse. You hear word, from both the townspeople and from the guards, of a thief named Aladdin. He becomes a priority to get rid of but first you need to see if the sultan knows what is going on throughout the kingdom. You return to the palace to talk to the sultan and you find him talking to his daughter about finding a suitor and you hear Jasmine say; “Father, I hate being forced into this. If I do marry, I want it to be for love.” You think to yourself ‘she would rather marry for love than have a successful line of succession for the good of the kingdom’. So even if you could change the ways of the sultan, the kingdom would still fall under whoever this fool thinks is worthy. Since you can’t knock off the king, what is the next best thing, a magical lamp perhaps? Now that you have seen from the perspective of Jafar, does he seem so bad, with the worst of motivations? I know what you are thinking, “but Jafar tried to kill Aladdin multiple times, he must be evil”. My answer to that is this, of course he did. Aladdin is a noted thief, he is very successful and very crafty, causing damage to Agrabah on the daily. The man is on the equivalent of the FBI most wanted list. So when Aladdin was declared the “diamond in the rough”, Jafar saw his opportunity to kill three birds with one stone, get the lamp, save his kingdom, and get rid of the greatest fugitive in town. What about the time he tried to get prince Ali killed? Well at that time he had already decided to assume the throne, so he wanted to take out all the competition. Plus, think about it Jafar said it himself “Whatever. You cannot just parade in here uninvited and expect to”. He gets cut off by the sultan, but according to this line you are to be invited to be the princesses next suitor, but along comes this Prince Ali, parading down the streets, disrupting the lives of the towns people. Just to see about the princess. You don’t see the other suitors coming on anything more than a white horse do you, no. Seems odd doesn’t it. Plus, this man is coming in on an elephant. Look I know Hannibal went through the Alps on elephant, but that’s the mountains. If you’re Jafar and you’re smart enough to find the lamp, you’re going to know that going through the dessert on an elephant, even at a close distance is going to be difficult. Even worse than that is that Ali is claiming to be from “a far distance”. Anyone with a brain cell would find that odd, so of course Jafar’s suspicion meter rises and he has the suspect killed. Doing research for this theory took a lot of time and effort, but it was worth it as it opened my eyes to see the hidden hints behind the movie Aladdin. Even if every word of this paper is wrong, it’s just a theory it’s supposed to make you think about things in a greater picture. Although, the main message of the movie was indeed realized. The characters were more than they seemed in every way.

2019.12.02 15:12 Etrurian_Pyramids Trying To Recap: Season 7 Episode 5

We open in a clean apartment in Kyev, where two happily engaged people are having tomatoes and coffee for breakfast. But even they can’t escape the topical TLC moment where they grossly overshare about their intimate life, and they feel the need to inform the public that sexual intercourse has indeed taken place last night (probably with momma Natalie praying for children behind the door). Speaking of which, Natalie finally tells Mike that she wants a kid (complete with a childish “please?”, inspired by Karine). They have a relatively calm conversation in which both explain their needs and anxieties without imposing too much on the other. Tania bursts through the wall. “That’s not how you do it, Natalie! Say you’re having kids, with or without him, that’s how you make sure he’ll never leave you. He wouldn’t ask a man those questions!”
Mike then submits himself to the traditional interrogation, this time with Natalie’s old friend. They talk about children again, while a walking condom advert screeches in the background. “Kids will be coming shortly, to a theater near you! Stay tuned!”, Mike assures us. We then discover that Mike has formed his theological views by smoking weed in the barn with Bojangles and believes in Ancient Aliens. The women nod politely, and Natalie is probably thinking about pumping the brakes a little bit. Well played, Mike, well played.
To work off their dinner, Natalie drags Mike to the park and gives me traumatic flashbacks by transforming into my middle school gym teacher. “Sport life is cool! Sport is really important!”. Natalie, I’m watching a shitty reality show while eating Christmas sweets. You are not selling me on this. Mad respect to couples who stay fit together, but this type of relationship seems absolutely exhausting to me. “I like this nice steady jog in nature”, Mike wheezes. Who are you trying to convince here, us or yourself? He temporarily escapes the work-out session by mentioning her ex-husband, which causes Natalie to pull up her E.T. hoodie in defense mode. They bicker aimlessly for a bit, because every 90 Day Fiancé couple needs a conflict and they are just too reasonable to find one. At least not until the debt bomb is dropped. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
In mountain-less Nebraska, TLC tries to squeeze the last drops of wholesomeness and whimsy out of this doomed relationship. Mursel adds the word “honeycomb” to his English vocabulary of yes, no, and ok, and is crafting a beekeeping-inspired altar, while Anna prepares cute honey flasks as wedding favours. I’m not falling for it. They have spent the last four episodes showing that a quirky common hobby doesn’t save you from terrible life decisions, and now I believe in nothing. Anna and Mursel engage in a very normal conversation for a couple that is supposed to get married in a few weeks, like “Do you ever plan on publicly acknowledging my children?”. “We need to work on communication”, Anna declares through Google Translate, and whines to the camera that she “didn’t think it was gonna be this hard”, after bringing a foreigner that doesn’t speak English to an English-speaking country. Mursel on the other hand confesses that he’s dodging all of her hard questions and that it’s better that they don’t understand each other. I fear the honeycomb altar will be making an appearance on Craigslist very soon.
Anna then goes dress shopping, looking as comfortable as a political journalist in Turkey. Of course Mursel, who is sleeping and living with his girlfriend before marriage, has strong opinions about modesty, and of course Anna just goes “Murica! I’ll wear what I want!” Why are they together again? Her friend asks some very normal questions, which make the bride start crying tears of pure joy. Anna, I know that look. It’s the look I have when I know I’m about to make a horrible decision and I want someone to stop me because I’ve lost control of my life and I don’t know how to fix it. Invest in lots of emotional support chocolate.
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
At a way less peaceful breakfast table, Robert and Anny, who’ve known each other for two weeks, continue to bicker like an old couple who doesn’t know that divorce is now legal. Anny expresses that she would like more affection and Robert rolls his eyes like he’s the relatable dad in a shitty outdated sit-com. Oh boy, bitchy crazy feeeeemales, amiright?
They go take a boxing class, and of course the instructor is Hispanic, and way more attractive. He and Anny wax lyrical about Dominican nature in Spanish, but it doesn’t take long before she involves him in their boring social media melodrama. I bet Robert hasn’t even changed his relationship status on Facebook, the turncoat! He reiterates that he’s only keeping photos of him with his ex for their children, because he has never heard of a USB stick. And besides, social media pictures don’t mean anything, nothing at all, and only a crazy emotional female would care about that. “So it’s ok if I post photos with my ex, right?”, asks Anny. “Fuck you! Let that motherfucker take you to the airport then! Deuces!”, says Robert, demonstrating less self-awareness than Nicole. “Hey, can we go back to punching things? I feel uncomfortable right now”, says Miguel.
Robert listlessly spars with the instructor, putting less weight in those punches than Bryson would, complaining about his girlfriend all the while. “You got a point, man”, says Miguel because there’s nothing else anyone can say in this situation, and wonders if he should charge extra for this impromptu counselling service. Then Robert and Anny repeat the exact same conversation for the hundredth time, but the piano background music indicates we’re supposed to find this charming, I guess.
Robert then goes to clear the air between his free au pair and his porn star ex-mother-in-law. Say what you want about him, the man has an interesting life. He defends his damsel armed with the best arguments, like that it’s no one’s business if they want to have a sixth child, and that Anny didn’t just appear out of thin air one day, it was a transition! A transition consisting of a cruise fuck, a string of angry emojis, and a trip to the consignment store: all the typical steps in a normal engagement. At least she does have a good relationship with Bryson: you get to know each other pretty well when you share a bed every night. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Meanwhile, Juliana lives out Larissa’s wild dream of buying a couch, which gives Michael an excuse to show off his douchy expensive car (but I bet it has air conditioning!). Michael is very excited that she knows how to drive stick shift, desperate to prove that there’s something else, anything else, he likes about her except her body. “I watch Bob Sponge!”, Juliana declares. No wonder she gets so along with the kids, she’s closer in age to them than to her sugar daddy. In typical TLC fashion, Juliana falls in love with an expensive couch that looks like it has seen a Smurf genocide, and Michael has to cockblock her. “No, we haven’t talked about finances yet”, Michael says while fondling her backside, then acts surprised that a young woman with no experience handling large amounts of money hasn’t made the most responsible decisions with the credit cards he has given her unrestricted access to. Her immediately buying a car with his money “looks bad”, says the 42-year-old with a wife half his age and a poverty fetish. Juliana explains that she bought a car in Brazil because she wasn’t sure if she was going to get her visa. So, in other words, better spend all of his money now in case it doesn’t work out in the end. She remarks that it “wasn’t a lot of money for Michael”. Is it bad that I’m on her side? It’s obvious he’s going to trade her in for a younger model in a few years, better get the bag while she can. Michael decides they’re just going to forget about it, as if he’s not going to throw it in her face as soon as they have a minor disagreement.
The family then moves into their new home, with little Max lamenting that he has to give up his front seat. Tasha is heard screaming in the distance. We then get a genuinely serious and moving moment: Juliana remarks on how different her quality of life used to be in Brazil, and how she feels a bit of survivor’s guilt when she thinks about her relatives who still live there. Just a shame that Michael is probably jerking it in the walk in closet, thinking about how poor she was before meeting him. “Oh yeah, tell me about that time your whole family was evicted! I'm almost there! Tell me about the rats!”
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
In the enchanted fairyland of a prefabricated Soviet apartment block, Sasha is doing his best to support his wife after her C-section, do his fair share of childcare and prove his reliability. Just kidding, he spends his days toning up Moscow ladies at the gym, and sees his child five(!) hours a week. Father-son quality time apparently consists in Sasha loafing around on the couch and shopping for baby momma no.4 on his iPad. “But muuuuuum, I don’t wanna!”, he whines when Emily asks to go for a walk in the park.
Like a snake or a lizard, he has lots of children but no experience in raising them, Emily remarks. He has also failed to procure a passport for the baby in the last six months. This means that Steven, who didn’t speak the language, only found out about the Cold War after he fucked a Russian chick and thought that weight is measured in kilometres, has navigated Russian bureaucracy more successfully than Sasha, a local. Emily introduces him to the exotic concept of parenting, and he plaintively asks “Do I have a choice?”. “Can you please help grandma with the groceries, sweetie?” “Do I even have a choice, mum?!” Welcome To My Life plays in the background. Sasha reflects on how all his ex-wives have changed after a year with him, and how the same is happening with Emily. Could it be that living at the gym, never prioritizing a kid you helped create and bailing on most childcare responsibilities makes a man really unattractive? No, it’s the women who are wrong!
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Good news for Anna and Mursel: they’re not the most awkward couple in town anymore! Jasmin keeps showing absolutely no interest in Blake, though maybe she’s just unable to move her face after all that Botox. And Blake knows very well that his girlfriend is very shy and still jetlagged from an intercontinental flight; so of course he’s invited his flock of friends over, all ready to discover if “she’s here for the right reasons”. What fun! Jasmin pulls a Benjamin and tries to deny Blake his pineapple mojito. She doesn’t want to put “poison” in her body; clearly stabbing yourself with fillers like a voodoo doll doesn’t count. To the surprise of no one, the jetlagged introverted girl in a new country who has just had a dozen new people sprung on her leaves the gathering early.
At a romantic dinner, Jasmin still looks absolutely disgusted with Blake (again, it could just be the Botox). Blake tries to make conversation and she shuts him down again. We should hook her up with Mursel, so they can not talk to each other over a non-alcoholic beverage all night long. Jasmin already looks like she has been stung by his bees. I hope to God Blake is in on this and doing it all for the exposure, or we have truly reached a legendary level of discomfort. I’ll never feel awkward ever again!
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
In a car that would be a way comfier home than Tania’s little shed of horrors, the self-identified Latina and the simple guy from the bush go meet her family. Syngin handles himself admirably well (I admit I’m way more like Jasmin in social situations), and Tania’s relatives all seem very nice too, even though grandma has watched too much Game of Thrones and goes on a weird tangent about “defending her blood”. Tania pressures him about children again; awkwardness and forced laughter all around.
TLC doesn’t even need to pull the weirdly-defensive-relative-card to create tension, because Tania announces that she’s going to Costa Rica for a month. “What?!”, grandma screeches, echoing us all. Apparently, Tania just needs to trip on shrooms at the beach… I mean, learn super serious authentic herbalist traditions. But don’t worry, this is going to help her realize her dream of becoming “the community witch doctor”. Even if that were a serious career path: I’ve never seen a person less suited for such a soothing, confidential role. Anyway, how long until she starts selling essential oils on Facebook? Taking bets now.
“He’s absolutely ok with it!”, Tania reassures everyone, while Syngin looks like a child who’s just had his ice cream stolen. The family brings up the very valid point that he now has to live alone with his girlfriend’s mom, in a shed in her backyard. I have to say, if there’s anyone that could make that situation not-awkward, that’s probably Syngin. Still sounds like my worst nightmare.
Next week, Syngin doesn’t know if he should be sad or relieved that Tania is leaving, we are supposed to care about an abuser’s love life, Juliana pretends she doesn’t know what a prenup is, Sasha cries manly tears while leaving the motherland, Blake’s parents take one look at Jasmin and go “Nope!”, and three boys in tuxedos kick Mursel to the curb.

The lip sync is a complete camp performance. Disasterina plays up her cooky spaced out persona while Jasmine goes for the innocent school girl approach with the lyrics. It's hard to take your eyes off either queen as they keep upstaging each other until the final note of the song.
