Mariah Carey – Thanks 4 Nothin’

Mariah emulates her favorite Basic Instinct scene

Mariah emulates her favorite Basic Instinct scene

In terms of female singers, I think that Mariah Carey is on top of her game. Sure she had a breakdown, who doesnt? Hers just happen to be very public. We see what happenned to Whitney Houston and her coke habit, we see Janet Jackson with tits out and a very embarassing flop of a tour. Then we have legends like Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight who’s all great but no new stuff and only comes out for Gala’s or charity dinners and inaugurations. Then we have singers like Beyonce, who I might say is worthy being Mariah’s next of kin.

And when E=MC2 comes out, Mariah was in competition with Madonna. That “4 Minutes” song? Seriously? That’s what crap would sound like if we listen to it for 4 minutes. I liked Madonna, you know, in Vogue, Like a Virgin, Papa don’t Preach, and that song with the burning cross. Back then she was something. Now Madonna’s just a gimmick with really toned arms and a ridiculous fetish for men half her age. (Okay Mariah did marry Nick Cannon, but at least she didnt divorce a perfectly good, appropriate husband). And Guy Ritchie couldve done so much better than Madonna, Madonna stopped being sexy in 1998. I dont get why she’s still relevant. Madonna sucks ass big time. She’s a circus performer, like Britney, like Lady Gaga (who in my opinion tries way way WAY too hard it becomes awkwardly funny).

So here I have another song which I love from E=MC2 called Thanks 4 Nothin’ Mariah’s songs alwas makes me feel something. If you dont, then you’re a heartless bastard. Ha!

Listen: Mariah Carey – Thanks 4 Nothin’

Saykoji – Online

leave a comment »

There’s two kind of rap in Indonesia, the serious, political, with heavy bass and snare or the laid back, goofy, Eminem circa those moments after Marshall Mathers LP. You gotta give props for anybody doing anything unconventional, like rapping in Indonesia and sticking to it. AND Saykoji’s son is just too cute. And apparently everbody’s doing autotune.

Slow Club – There is No Good Way to Say I’m Leaving You

leave a comment »

Slow Club

Slow Club are Charles and Rebecca from Sheffield, United Kingdom. They sing using quirky lyrics, a variety of percussion instruments and great vocal interplay.

So which one do you think is the most painful, getting dumped in a hasty, jerky move, or in a slow, heartfelt confession that it’s “inevitable” and to the tunes of Aqualung’s Falling Out of Love?

You prefer the jerk or the sensitive man?

As I have been dumped. Hating the jerk is easier, no? But if your guy sings songs like this by the Slow Club – There is No Good Way to Say I’m Leaving You..man, then you seriously wonder what the hell is wrong with you.

Song of the Month : May

with one comment

So what is the point of making these things when you dont make it every month. Apparently, I checked my posts, and I done skipped a month. And I realized a lot of spelling mistakes. Ha! I’m usually most anal on other peope’s spelling mistakes but I blame my unergonomically designed keyboard.

So for June, I got some old, some new, but all is good in the musicverse.

1. Copeland – Brightest

I first heard this on my boyfriend’s car, and it kind of makes me sad, like I had the sense that some other girl gave this song to him, because its just the kind of songs you try pouring all your souls to.

Mp3: Copeland – Brightest

2. Dionne Warwick, Elton John, Gladys Knight and Stevie Wonder – Thats What Friends are For

I remember in about 6th grade I was taking this amazingly long roadtrip in winter break from Atlanta to New York, and I was in charge of making the mixtape. I took requests from my parents and this is one of the songs that got palyed, over and over.

3. Ciara feat Justin Timberlake – Love, Sex and Magic

I used to really like Justin Timberlake, but now he looks and sound like douche, and Jessica Biel doesnt help much. But I love Ciara, she’s like the underrated Beyonce,  if anyone were to take Aaliyah’s position, it would be her. And the video is..*whew* This has the Janet Jackson feel, without the nipple ring.

Aaand thats all Im feeling for this month. Gotta get back to my finals, ciao!

Crank 2: High Voltage

leave a comment »

Or: Jason Statham and His New Fetish (Okay that was bad)

Or: Jason Statham and His New Fetish (Okay that was bad)

People are gonna say a lot of things about this movie, and yeah, whatever, but I fucking love Chev Chelios. This movie is brainless and fun but it was intended this way, see? This is what makes it brilliant. It’s like fuckin Grand Theft Auto, without even having to actually make Grand Theft Auto. Crank 2: High Voltage by far surpasses the first movie. It’s louder, cruder (is that a word?) and dare i say this: better.

For the 3 people out there that did not like, or did not watch the fisrt Crank, Chev Chelios (played by Jason Statham) is a bad ass from Enghlandh (mispellings intended) that fell from a helicopter after surviving a chinese poison (yes, a poison) thats supposedly will make his heart stop if he ran out of adrenaline, thus buying him a perfect, justifiable escuse to do whatever the fuck he wants. In Crank 2, after he fell, he was scooped up and given an artificial heart, which has to be recharged every hour. Thus the plot ensue and we get to see Jason Statham wreck havoc, and makes my heart skip a beat. Crank 2 was so high on surrealism that they had to include montage scenes, title scenes that says “9 seconds later,” and cameos from porn stars.

I read that Crank 2 was shot by cheap cameras straight out of Best Buy, although they used 12 at a time and not afraid to destroy any if deemed necessary.  So you see kids? Cheap cameras + Jason Statham + Strippers + Mechanical Heart + Men’s nipples getting cut off (wait for it..its legendary) = GOOD TIME.

The Verdict: 5 out of 5.

I give it that because, ah hell, as much as I love war movies, holocaust movies, 2 hours of talking movies all those pretentious movies, but Crank 2 can’t be wrong. It blows your brain all over the place.

X Men Origins : Wolverine

Wolverine Delivers, But Nothing More.

Or: Hugh Jackman with Claws. RRR

Or: Hugh Jackman with Claws. RRR

News: Lo and behold, here’s my dish on the most anticipated movie blockbuster that still turned out to be a major hit despite the 4 million leak downloads. The movie producers griped abput losing 28 million and guess how much the movie made, as of May 3rd: 87 million dollars. Wow, I told you, piracy helps! These 4 million people wouldn’t pay for shit. Instead, they helped as some sort of the new world viral marketers.

So as for the movie, ahem. The opening war scenes, I knew this movie was going to be monumental in terms of special effects. I saw this one stand up routine by Eddie Izzard on how american movies are so perfect for popcorn, because you can eat them without taking your eyes off the screen. It’s like seeing comicbook pages flipped from front to back at a high rate. But but but, Wolverine is trying to cram as much action as possible without really developing the back stories of its characters that it looks like a, let me quote IMDB, “4 scene cameos”. 

I love a man like Hugh Jackman, but in Wolverine, Liev Schreiber steals the show as Sabretooth. I rooted and sympathized for Sabretooth the whole movie and he turns out to save the day, while that might be a spoiler for some, but don’t worry, Wolverine is one predictable movie.

The verdict: 3.5 out of 5.

Good for the eyes, does little for the mind, unlike Spiderman 2 which is only my favorite superhero movie yet.
