Television (Not a full list of what I watch):
(If you love to talk television, hit me up on Twitter and we can share feels together!)
Big Brother US18: I want Paul to win.
Mr. Robot S2: My mind is being fucked with right now.
Sing It On S2: Faux Paz is this seasons Nor’Easters for me and their rendition of Dog Days Are Over (Florence + The Machines) gives me chills.
Scream S2: Predictable ending.
Suits S6: While this season has actually been really weak for me with forced “drama”, I can’t not enjoy the dynamics with the characters. Plus, Louis finding love is adorable.
The Night Of: Now that this is over…let the binge begin.
Captain America: Civil War: I don’t even know which “team” I would be on.
Neighbors 2: I don’t really expect much watching this and that’s what it delivered.
Now You See Me 2: Re-watched this gem and it is still magnificent.
The Light Between Oceans: Full review to come but though picturesque and carried by Vikander, the story is with problems. AND, it was a terrible viewing experience because of the patron next to me.
(Maroon bolded names link to the track for easy peasy listening)
Sam Tinnesz – Hold On For Your Life: I think I heard this on Scream TV? It’s mellow.
Tritonal & Jenaux – Broken (feat. Adam Lambert): Generic? Probably. But I’m trash, so.
Shawn Mendes – Mercy: This Canadian pride is fire.
Voices In Your Head – Bang My Head (opb. David Guetta feat. Sia & Fetty Wap): Perhaps one of my favourite ICCA 2015 arrangements. VIYH placed 2nd in ICCAs too!
In other more important news: I WILL BE GOING TO SEE A MONSTER CALLS AT THE TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL IN TWO WEEKS *dies*.
