Tuesday Tunes #33: The Themes of Kingdom Hearts

I want you for a lifetime, so if you’re gonna think twice, baby. I don’t wanna know, baby, I don’t wanna know. I will forever remember when Disney bought Marvel.  My then best friend and future husband, Brad, was thousands of miles away serving a two-year mission in the Dominican Republic (we be Mormons over here, yo). … Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #33: The Themes of Kingdom Hearts

Tuesday Tunes #32: Hi, My Name is Odette, and I Am Not a Disney Princess

Okay, there are few things that I've been arguing with people about since I was basically in elementary school.  They're really useless things.  That I'm super passionate about for whatever reason.  (I need help.) Number one, Sleeping Beauty has Aurora in a blue dress literally the entire film, showing her in Flora's pink for mere flashing seconds in… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #32: Hi, My Name is Odette, and I Am Not a Disney Princess

Tuesday Tunes #31: Ref:rain

There's nothing quite like a perfectly epic romantic ballad.  Back in middle school, I remember my sister would write out her favorite sentimental lyrics everywhere she could.  Sheets of paper, covers of notebooks, even on her shoes.  I realized very quickly that there was just something relaxing about scribing out those dreamy words, and I… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #31: Ref:rain

Tuesday Tunes #30: BYU’s Greatest Showman

I think one of the greatest parts of being a nerd is that there's just so many types of nerdiness.  Honestly, being a nerd applies to anything that you're freakishly passionate about.  Whether it's a fandom that has pushed you to pages and pages of fan fiction, or it's a sport that fills your mind with… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #30: BYU’s Greatest Showman

Tuesday Tunes #29: 5 English Anime Openings U.S. Viewers Know by Heart

Otaku or not, anime most likely has some sort of hand in your childhood television viewing. As a young kid, you probably didn't register much about the cultural differences in the show (most of them were probably cruelly edited out or dubbed over, anyway), but I'm sure you noticed some big eyes and lots and… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #29: 5 English Anime Openings U.S. Viewers Know by Heart

Tuesday Tunes #28: Top 10 Highest Grossing Musical Films of All Time

Okay, you're probably going to throw a variety of fruits, vegetables, and possibly fecal matter at me, but... I still haven't seen The Greatest Showman.  I KNOW, OKAY.  From what I've heard, I'm majorly missing out.  Facebook especially is riddled with parodies of the film, songs from the soundtrack being shared, and glowing reviews, including this… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #28: Top 10 Highest Grossing Musical Films of All Time

Tuesday Tunes #27: Ex-Boyfriends Beat Star Wars

Oh hey, did you hear?  Star Wars: The Last Jedi is one big giant flop in the Chinese market.  Marking Disney's biggest misfire in Chinese theatres since The Lone Ranger, all but 10-percent of cinema screens in China are pulling The Last Jedi leaving us to ask:  Why?  The answer may surprise you, but it directly relates to… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #27: Ex-Boyfriends Beat Star Wars

Tuesday Tunes #26: Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card is Nostalgia Crack

OH MY GOSH.  I watched the first episode of the Cardcaptor Sakura continuation series Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card (which you can check out yourself via VRV or Crunchyroll streaming), and I just about died from how successfully Madhouse recreated the tone and joy of the original anime (you know, 18-years later). Of course, the nostalgia of it… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #26: Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card is Nostalgia Crack

Tuesday Tunes #25: Happy (BTS) New Year!

If you were watching Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, then you watched BTS hit a worldwide scale of exposure.  Rocking two insanely well-choreographed performances, their hashtag, #BTSxRockinEve, actually went on to completely obliterate the show's original hashtag on Twitter. Yes, BTS is going to take over the world. “i can now see why people like bts”… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #25: Happy (BTS) New Year!

Tuesday Tunes #24: Top 5 SHINee Songs–You Did Well, Jonghyun

If you weren't already aware, one of SHINee's band members, Jonghyun, committed suicide on Monday.  While I could spend today's blog post using Jonghyun's early death (he was my age, 27-years-old) as a step-off to discussing the notoriously strict and high-pressure environment of the Korean entertainment industry, I think I'd rather look at the shining… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #24: Top 5 SHINee Songs–You Did Well, Jonghyun
