Album Review: “Svrcina” by Svrcina

15492305_1319308094800184_7204047501463654602_nToday’s review is about an artist that has lend her voice on Tommee Profitt’s music in the past couple of years! Svrcina is like many singer-songwriters of the age, where they don’t usually release a full on album, where it’s like 12 songs of brand new material, they only put out a few songs a year. It’s periodically, but it’s where we are in the music industry where people would rather buy one single at a time. She recently released an eight track album during the last full week of March, and I’m happy to talk about it with you!

On her Facebook, it says that she does “alternative, ambient pop, and electronic” and that has become a favorite combination of mine in the past few years, so she has the upper hand already! The first song is “Whispers” and I really like the pop-y beat, it’s light and airy, but not obnoxious, so right out of the gate you get a nice dance track with a soft voice and catchy lyrics. Next is “Steady” and you instantly get that ambient vibe with that introduction of popping, the first thing that came to me was it’s like bubbles popping! It has a chilled, ambient and electric beat to it that I found to be really fun! Svrcina has this voice where it sounds so powerful and sweet at the same time. You get this loving vibe all around on this one. It’s becoming one of my favorites!

Third is “Who Are You” which will come back to us in a remix later on, but now we have the original version and I absolutely this jungle or over-worldly sound you immediately hear when it starts. It keeps you guessing and it’s definitely a great cinematic track. I had to look back through my reviews of Tommee Profitt’s albums to make sure I hadn’t talked about it before, but nope, this is a new track. I can’t say for sure that Tommee produce it, just because it has a cinematic vibe going on, doesn’t always mean anything. And then after that heavy hitter, we slow it down with “Astronomical” and from the moment I wrote it out on my note pad, I knew this one would be interesting no matter what. I really love the gentle storytelling, her voice is very easy going and the piano matches it so well. It’s just beautiful!

Now we move on to “Deeper” and it has this zigzag beat that makes it seem like it could be a regular pop track. but then you have all of these different elements. You have the first sounds you were introduced to, and then you have an acoustic guitar with an light dance beat on top of it. What blows my mind that even though I wasn’t really hearing the actual words of the song, I was really into it and it wasn’t even overwhelming either! Sixth is “Island” and this was another one I was really curious about, and I really love it. You really only hear her voice, but it’s almost dreamy like she’s floating out into the abyss, singing out her troubles.  It’s absolutely gorgeous!

These will be the last two songs of the album, starting with “Sweeter Place” and this has another ballad, but as much as it does have that space-y vibe that the other two tracks had, this one is completely unique. You can hear her emotion, the rawness of it, is so loud. The beat itself does increase, but not in such a way that you lose the gentle atmosphere. I like it, but not as much as I thought I would, but I will grow into it. And remember when I said we’ll  be seeing “Who You Are” again, this is a remix of it by Russ Macklin and I actually don’t like it. I felt like he downgraded it from its original state, but I guess there’s only so many ways to remix such a jam-packed track like that, so I can’t say I hate it, but it’s definitely my least favorite out of the full thing.

I was very surprised with this. I didn’t think that I would like almost every song, but I do. Once I found out what kind of music Svrcina actually makes, it did make things easier to do this. I’ve also been in a different mindset lately, so I actually liked the ballads a lot more, I am usually a lot harder to impress but whenever I get in these moods I feel like I need all of the dreamscape-ballads I can find at that point of time. Overall, I thought it was a great release, and if you don’t mind I’m going to go listen to her other singles on her Spotify profile.

Have you listened to Svcrina’s debut album yet? If you have, what are some of your favorites? Are there any other alternative artists you think I should listen to? Let me know below!

Non-Disney | Nickelodeon

Howdy!

I think if you’re going to do a Non-Disney movie post, I think it would be an insult to not talk about Nickelodeon. If you were a child of the 80’s or early 90’s, Nickelodeon was the best network for kids. Now if you were born sometime past mid-90’s and into the early 00’s you probably think the same thing about old school Disney. Personally, I will always be #TeamNickelodeon because I have more memories of it, whereas my sister is definitely #TeamDisney but she might be on that side because of her obsession of both High School Musical and Camp Rock movies!

I did discover something while I was researching for this post. I absolutely loved Doug’s 1st Movie as a kid. It came out in 1999 and I was going to put it on this post, but as I was reading online, I found out that the film was done by DISNEY! What the hell?! Maybe that’s one of the reasons why everybody is so divided between these two networks! However, I was not even ten years old when it came out and I’m in my mid-20’s now and I’m just finding this out!

Anywho, let’s move onto the actual list of movies for this post!

3496270992d2ade4e92c46caf7a684cf

The Rugrats Movie (1998) E.G. Daily, Christine Cavanaugh, Kath Soucie, and Cheryl Chase

Rugrats has been at the top of my favorites. Since the whole network decided to bring back the older Nickelodeon shows, on a channel called “NickSplat” I can enjoy watching some of my favorites late at night instead of having to wake up somewhat early on the weekends! However, if you want to watch both Rugrats and Hey Arnold, you have to stay up past midnight to watch either one! So either way I’m screwed!

This was my favorite Rugrats film. I did enjoy the one based in Paris, France and I loved the fact that they brought in both Kira and Kimi, but the first one though is both hilarious and sad at the same time. I’m thankful I wasn’t like that when Blondie was born, but at four years old, I think I was ready to have a sibling around me. And there are a lot of good scenes but there’s no other scene more heartbreaking then the one that the gif I used represents.

Hey, Arnold! The Movie (2002) Spencer Klein, Francesca Marie Smith, and Jamil Walker Smith

Sadly I don’t remember much of what this movie was about, I do know that Arnold and Gerald dress up like Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in Men In Black and Helga finally snaps and as you can see, kisses Arnold without giving a shit. Other than that, I don’t really know anything else.

A part of me wished I was this considerate to the people around when I was in school; instead I was ambitious and cocky. That’s exactly the best combination I will add! Anyways, I had tried to a blog post sometime last year about some of the life lessons you could learn by watching a couple episodes a night. Arnold cared for the people who was friends and sometimes loathed, he didn’t care about his feelings, he always tried to help them out. I mean, look at stoop kid for crying out loud!

tumblr_nfwyg0tavb1sgixyoo2_r1_500

The Wild Thornberry’s Movie (2002) Lacey Chabert, Tim Curry, Jodi Carlisle, and Danielle Harris

This is another film that I don’t remember that much! I did enjoy some of the episodes as a kid, but TWT were like As Told By Ginger, I liked it, but it wasn’t in my top five shows I watched as a young kid. What makes it worse is Splat doesn’t even play these shows or Rocket Power anymore!

It does freak me out that Lacey Chabert was the one who voiced Eliza though! And Danielle Harris is a freaking scream queen now! She’s also the girl who played “Molly” on a couple episodes of Roseanne if the name doesn’t exactly help enough.

What did you love to watch on TV as a kid? And let’s have some fun, were you on Team Nickelodeon or Team Disney? Visit my blog’s Facebook page around 1:30pm EST to answer a poll about my next “Non-Disney” theme!

Best Of 2017 | TV Shows!

Howdy!

I had a rough time figuring out when I was exactly going to put these posts up as there’s not much room between Christmas and New Years to put up more than one post, but then I realized maybe this was the reason why I only write three posts a week? It’s not, so don’t worry but it was a nice thought to have in the middle of the chaos though!

I’m doing the list of favorite television shows I watched in the spring and fall schedules. I do have to point out that towards October 2016, I basically stopped watched majority of the shows like This Is Us, Notorious, The Arrangement, Timeless, and Speechless. I felt as though I had too much going on at night throughout the week so I cut back on almost everything I was watching at the time. Once January came around though, I became very hesitant about what I wanted to watch. Thankfully everything on this list was kept me entertained and focused.

Victoria (PBS – Jenna Coleman, Tom Hughes, David Oakes, and Rufus Sewall)

I loved Victoria! It premiered on PBS I think either in early December or January, my gut is telling me it was early January though.

I don’t know much about the Havorians, I’m actually only just now learning about “The Mad King” and his son George IV and the regency era. I didn’t even know that much about Queen Victoria. My focus of British royals goes from Plantagenet, Tudor to the current family Windsor. This show gave me a lot of new information to digest, and I really love Jenna and Tom playing both a young Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. You get a nice insight of their lives before they were married. I actually can’t wait to see what happens in season two when it comes to us in the US next month!

Taboo (FX – Tom Hardy, Oona Chaplin, and Jonathan Pryce)

Now this shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody, but I really enjoyed this show. My dad and I don’t really watch the same shows very often but we did watch the crap out of this and it was nice to talk about a show the day after it came on. However, I would have to do it before he watched his Vikings because he usually was distracted by the series of events that took place on that show. Thank god for both Facebook and Twitter though!

This show was a bit of a mystery, some of the things featured in the eight part series, still confuse me. For it to be called “taboo” I don’t necessarily know what the taboo would be, then besides the incest part. I liked the creepy undertone though, I like learning about Britain’s gritty past.

The White Princess (Starz – Jodie Comer, Jacob Collins-Levy, Michelle Fairley, Essie Davis)

I had been looking forward to The White Princess after I finished watching the first series of the House of York kings in The White Queen. The show was based on historical fiction writer Phillipa Gregory’s about King Edward IV and his consort Queen Elizabeth Woodville,  and their oldest daughter Elizabeth of York and how life went for her after the death of not only her father, but her brothers and uncle, Richard III. And how she came to marry her enemy: Henry Tudor.

I ended up reading Alison Weir’s book Elizabeth Of York: A Forgotten Tudor Queen in January and this show started in mid-February. I actually finished reading the book like the day before it premiered and I will never do that again! I wasn’t open-minded like I was with the first one. They also butchered a lot of historical events to fit into this world and I think that was what bothered me the most actually!

The Mist (Spike – Alyssa Sutherland, Morgan Spector, Gus Birney)

 Before I start writing out what I thought about this show, apparently I should have swallowed my pride and watched it live because maybe they wouldn’t had cancelled it. Yes, it’s no longer on air, but it is on Netflix if anybody wants to check it out.

Considering the fact that two Stephan King movies came out this year, The Dark Tower in early spring and the classic It back in September, I’m surprised that this didn’t have a good rating. I thought it was creepy but maybe not enough for hardcore Stephan King fans I guess. Oh well, thankfully for me there’s a book that I can get now.

Midnight, Texas (NBC – François Arnaud, Arielle Kebbel, Peter Mensah, and Persia Fitz-Henley)

Just when I think I’m finished with the vampires, this show turns up! If you’re wondering why I said that is because this is based off of a book by the author who created the True Blood series. It wasn’t all about vampires, but it had almost every supernatural being that you can think of really, and as much as I liked this, I feel like this will probably be cancelled too.

The Deuce (HBO – James Franco, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Margarita Levieva, and Emily Meade)

As much as I liked this show, I never exactly finished it. I think I stopped on episode four, so that’ll mean I have about five episodes to watch.

You know how I said that my dad and I don’t watch too many shows together, my mom and I are about the same too. I recorded the first episode and she thought she had done it herself, so picture her face when she finally watched it. Apparently it was a lot more racy than she was expecting it to be. She wasn’t too sure why I liked it, but then again neither do I! It’s about the early days in the porn industry and somehow the character or characters that James Franco plays (because he plays a pair of twins!) go into creating the media world too. So now you understand why my mom was basically freaking out a bit, because it show quite a bit!

The Sinner (USA – Jessica Biel, Christopher Abbott, and Bill Pulman)

This was a surprise for me. I don’t have USA as part of my list of channels on my guide so the day I saw the previews for it was probably the week they premiered episode three. Like the one above, I never finished the series but I would only have to get caught up on the last two episodes though.

When mom was in the hospital recovering from her surgery back in October, she saw the commercials still circulating for the network. So she’s now interested, but yet hasn’t tried to rent or recorded them yet. I would like to see what she thought of it, but I fear she’ll freak out about the scenes with Bill Pulman though, if you’ve seen the show, you know what I’m talking about here. In a way, it goes with what I just explained above!

The Gifted (FOX – Stephan Moyer, Amy Acker, Sean Teale, and Janie Chung)

This is unfortunately another TV show that I have yet to finish. I’m really hoping that this is On Demand or Netflix, because I really enjoyed this a lot. The main reason why I stopped watching it was because the setting was confusing me. It is set when the X-Men have disappeared. You hear the term “Sentinel Service” a lot, so I’m guessing everything takes place if Wolverine wasn’t successful when Dr. Trask built the Sentinels in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. I pretty much like everything about it, the characters and their stories. It’s a little strange seeing Stephan Moyer and Amy Acker back on my screen again. I’m very behind it on it and I’m really not happy with myself at the moment.

Damnation (USA – Killian Scott, Logan Marshall-Green, and Sarah Jones)

The story is about the rich and poor, but based in the 1800’s. Farmers need to sell their goods to stores in their counties, to be able to provide for their families, but when the price to sell the stuff is too low, until an interesting man wants to spark a revolution to try to help the farmers. You see the point of view through both the farmers and businessmen throughout the Midwest and Northwest states and how they deal with the strikes.

I think after watching Taboo my dad and I have been looking for shows that either have similar themes or look like the show as far as the gritty, raw scenes. Thankfully, this show has everything that we both like! It has the unruly and yet historical background. One thing that I know my dad will be happy about is the fact everybody is speaking in an American accent. And the reason why I said “will be” is because he hasn’t even watched the three or four episodes in his folder on our DVR yet. He hasn’t even watched his newest Vikings episodes either! He’s been enjoying Netflix lately!

Have you watched any of these new shows yet? Did I miss any of the others? What else do I need to check out?

REVIEW | Lair

review2017

Howdy!

It’s been a while since I’ve actually reviewed anything besides albums or EPs, but today is different. As the rest of the US will be celebrating Thanksgiving (or Friendsgiving!) I thought I should probably have an easy going post for today. I actually had this figured out but I just needed a day to get it up and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do it!

WARNING: Spoilers ahead! Beware!

Liar is a series that premiered in the United Kingdom first, as it is set there in the first place. Here in the United States, we ended up getting the first episode two or three weeks after they did, because it came on before the start of October. I actually never saw the promos for it, all I kept seeing was everybody on Twitter talking about it and I just figured that I’d never be able to watch it, because I follow a lot more UKers than Americans on my social media accounts. And then one day I was searching on my guide and found it on the Sundance Channel and I became a happy camper after that!

The story is about a woman, by the name of Laura Nielsen, played by Joanne Froggatt, she is newly single and a teacher at a school somewhere in England. Laura meets one of her students’ dad, Andrew Earlham, played by Ioan Gruffold. He is a doctor that works at the same hospital as her sister Katy. Laura and Andrew go out on a date and when they get back to her flat or apartment things apparently go array.  She wakes up, feeling strange, after she thinks that Andrew has raped her. The show is about what Laura and Andrew do in their lives while the allegations linger over them.

There were a lot of things that I really enjoyed about this show.

I loved not really knowing if Laura is telling the truth in the beginning, they don’t really show you how that night really unfolds until episode four, they mostly show you flashbacks of how the date went and then they show you how he was able to do it and get away with it. Andrew drugged her with GHB, which is a clear liquid that can be poured into someone’s drink undetected and they can feel really drowsy as it takes effect on the body.

Laura is such a strong character in the show. She tries her best to do everything in her power to make sure he does not do this to another woman. However, a man of her past reappears and wants to make sure that her case doesn’t go through. When lawyers hear of this man’s testimony, the case against Andrew doesn’t go to trail. And then the female detective Harmon, goes to Andrew’s house to personally tell him that piece of news and Andrew boldly tries to ask her out, but that’s when red lights flash in her mind (they did in mine too!) and she declines his offer but not without giving him a warning. The next day, she goes home and she’s in the early stages of pregnancy and apparently a lesbian, she has a different juice drink for everyday of the week and she falls asleep. She goes to the bathroom after getting up and she goes to stand up and she notices there’s quite a bit of blood below. So she suspects something happened right away.

This isn’t the only thing that is going on with story line. Laura’s sister Katy is having or had an affair with Laura’s now ex-boyfriend Tom. They both are interested in helping Laura capture Andrew doing something wrong, but then this secret comes out and it’s really sad for both Laura and Katy, as they seemed to be there for each other and after that, the trust isn’t there and to top it all off, Katy’s husband Liam basically kicks her out of their family home with him and their children. So it’s sad all around.

I think the first, fourth and sixth episodes were my favorites. We start to see the things coming together after the fourth episode, things make more sense and then Laura gets Andrew’s phone. She goes over to the old lady’s house and is inside that shed looking inside that gym bag, that whole scene was so uneasy for me because Mia was on the phone trying to call Andrew and I kept imagining him driving over there to come get her, but he never shows up. Laura turns in the case of SD cards of the recordings of the rapes, and the baggy of GHB bottles to the police.

And then the biggest bomb drops, as the end of the last episode shows Andrew Earlham in the middle of the marshes with what looks like a slash around his throat. So the question is who the hell killed him?!?! My money is on his kid honestly! I think the pressure was too much for him. I feel a child can deny an allegation one time, so when the detective pressed charges, I think that was his breaking point. The last scene we have of Luke’s life three months later and you see the screen of what kids that he went to school with were saying about the two of them kind of gives you an insight into the pain that Luke has been feeling lately; plus he looked like pure shit too.

I honestly can’t wait for season two now!

What did you think of Liar? And who do you think honestly killed Andrew at the end?

Top 5 Crushes | WOMEN

sept

This is another prompt I got from the Safe Haven: Annoymous Letters website! I thought I’d split up my lists because I actually have more of a list on the women’s side, the males are a bit difficult because I sort of change my interests for them. Every actor, model and/or musician has been in and out of the list multiple times in the past. So I’m going to leave them for later, and I’ll talk about my female crushes first!

Funny story before I start on this, I put up on my Facebook the other day that I was going to do a Top 5 Crushes post and I wanted to know everybody else’s “celebrity” crush! I had them respond with a gif only and it was pretty funny and interesting to see who everybody liked, some were expected but some weren’t. For anybody who decides to do this on their Facebook, it’s better to put the word “celebrity” in front of crush or else somebody that isn’t family and remembers who you liked in high school just puts his name in the comments. I haven’t felt that red in my face in a long time!

Megan Fox – American

Here’s a good one, I was one of those people who did not see Megan Fox beautifulness until I was actually forced to see Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen in theaters. I know that whole sentence probably blew your mind, because I am a HUGE fan of the Transformers films but I will admit that I saw this first and kind of fell in love with it obviously.

I try not to see Megan as this sex symbol in every movie I watch, but that has always been a struggle with me because once I saw her in this, I was like every other guy and basically would faint at the sight of her. I’m happy to say that it didn’t die out when she married and started having kids.

giphy1

Phoebe Tonkin – Australian

Before she went on to star on both The Vampire Diaries in 2012, Phoebe was on the other CW show called The Secret Circle and they only had one season and it was the show I was not only introduced to Phoebe but Britt Robertson as well. I was sad when it got cancelled, but when she appeared on TVD as a werewolf and eventually moving on to The Originals as a full on bad ass character I was so happy!

Apparently I’m more into Australian women than men, well besides the Hemsworth brothers! Between her, Teresa Palmer and Margot Robbie, the Aussie blondes are so good looking! And yes, Phoebe is naturally a blonde, even though I do like her more as a brunette!

giphy

Marion Cotillard – French

The same year I saw the Transformers movie, the week after we went to see Public Enemies starring both Johnny Depp and this beauty Marion Cotillard! I’ve always secretly loved her! Those blue eyes and brown hair, she has this old Hollywood glam to her that I just love seeing back on the screen! I literally have the war film Allied on my DVR for my dad, but really it’s for me because the more I see her in different films I have to watch them! 

nxd7rl5

Natalie Dormer – British

These next two literally do NOT change out of their spots! They have always went back and forth between one and two!

I’ve known about Natalie Dormer since watching Rush, yes that was the first ever film I ever saw her in. If you’ve seen that movie, now you know why she’s so high up the list! Anyways, I try to watch anything with her in it. I’m REALLY behind of course! I love her both as a blonde and brunette! I think she looks more like a bad ass with her dark hair, she also looks very mysterious with it. Whenever she’s blonde though, she tends to show off her softer side and I tend to think of her as the next Lauren Bacall.

tumblr_inline_mqk6qdsmr21qz4rgp

Kate Beckinsale – British

Kate is my #1 favorite women! She’s just so flipping sexy! I find it odd that I’ve only really seen her as Selene in the Underworld series though! It’s actually difficult to find her in a film that I’ll actually watch. I’m very picky when it comes to films despite the fact that I have a crushes on these actors and actresses, sometimes I’m not willing to watch certain movies with them in it. For an example, I tried watching Natalie Dormer in the film The Forest and I really did attempt to watch it twice, but could not get myself to feel comfortable watching it! So I either need to suck it up or be okay with the fact I might never see another movie with Kate in it.

If this list isn’t enough for you, I do love Cate Blanchett, Katheryn Winnick, Rose Leslie, Georgia Hirst, Elsa Pataky, Gal Gadot, Miranda Kerr, Hayden Panettiere, and Margot Robbie. As you can tell, I have a lot of actresses I only just realized this, but I’m pretty sure the guys will be about the same and maybe a couple of musicians here and there. I’ll get started on that post soon!

Do you have any women crushes? I mean, it is WEDNESDAY for crying out loud, tell me some of yours!

Book Review: “Thirteen Reasons Why” by Jay Asher

198928_191726290863606_6633612_nI found out about this book while I was watching one of my favorite booktubers: Sasha! I put it on my Goodreads like I always do, but I didn’t actually think I’d ever read it. I mean a good chunk of the books on my profile will never be purchased but I still find and collect them to be added onto my tbr (to be read) list.

When it announced that Netflix was making it into a series, I began to see a sudden change, not in me but I found it odd to see everybody was talking about it because they were now watching it on their phones and desktops. Sadly, I don’t have Netflix so I’m not able to watch it, but honestly I kind of don’t want to, the book satisfied me. The only reason why I was able to read it was because both Blondie and Brandon binged watched it and then bought the book.

So the synopsis is about the story of a girl, by the name of Hannah Baker. She has committed suicide and without any warning, these rows of cassette tapes start arriving for different people. There’s no return address on the boxes so they have no idea who sends them, until they actually listen. We hear the story from Clay Jensen’s point of view when he gets his set of tapes and learns more about the girl that he’s had feelings for but these tapes tell you a very complicated and sort of twisted story of the reasons why she’s killed herself.

As I was reading from Hannah’s point of view because you get a very detailed section of what’s going on with her psyche throughout this process and then you have Clay’s emotions and movements too. Certain parts I felt like she was bragging in the way she was discussing each person and the things they were doing to her. There were a couple of times where I felt she wasn’t taking any responsible for her own actions until the very last. She could have stood up for herself, but she didn’t. And just so I’m clear, I am not saying she should have killed herself. In the way that the author wrote her out to be, it made her look this way!

Clay showed a lot of anxiety throughout listening to each tape, word for word. I loved hearing his thoughts and what he was doing whenever he’d listen to them; I thought it read so well. You could easily see everything in your head as he was doing them. Despite not watching the show at all, I was full of visuals whenever I’d read different scenes. Some would come in clearer than others, like the section about Tyler? I could see every part, but as far the party, that’s when I’d have the most trouble figuring out in the beginning. Thankfully, later on it gets explained and you have a more understanding of everything.

I thought the book was interesting! I originally gave it five stars, but I changed it to three on Goodreads because of my thoughts of how Hannah was portrayed. Something tells me, I’ll get some backlash from the whole paragraph and I would not be surprised if it’s my sister. This is a review, if I think an author has brought out a cocky side to a character that wants these people to understand what they did wrong than I will say something about it! There were parts where I did feel sorry for her but I stand by what I said above too!

Have you read “13 Reasons Why” yet? Did you like it? Since I haven’t seen the Netflix series, can you tell me of the differences in the show from the book?

Life Lessons From “The Big Bang Theory”

Howdy!

We all have movies and/or television shows that we all know and love dearly, but have we ever been so inspired by them that we start to see life lessons within them? The answer is yes, but we’re not always open about it.

Sometime last year, The Big Bang Theory became one of the biggest shows for my family. My nana started watching it every once in a while, but it was when my mom started to watch it on accident. You know if one likes the show, the other will follow and he definitely did not disappoint. My dad loves this freaking show! It’s enough to actually creep somebody out too, because you could think he was in bed asleep until he hear him cackle up a storm! And sometime afterwards I followed suit and now I am making my way through the episodes on our DVR!

So I was wondering whether or not, if there are any life lessons with this exact show and surprisingly, there are a few of them! I hope you all enjoy this and if you have any more to add, let me know in the comments!

tumblr_n3xmc1hbca1sl2idio7_500

1.) Patience Exists.

For anybody who believes that “patience is virtue” you know I’m right about this when it comes to the characters of The Big Bang Theory!

Crazy enough, every single character has experienced it throughout the lives on the show! For example, Leonard and Penny, hello! He asked her to marry him a total of four times (some in awkward situations!) but she always told him no and then finally they get married in Las Vegas! This also works for Howard and Bernadette as well, as Howard was always the creepy, sexual friend of the four of them! You did not think he’d be the first to be married off, but he was!

Another way this works is Raj, he could not talk to women in the beginning. Poor guy having to rely on Howard to voice his hilarious comments whenever Penny or any other woman was in the room.  Thankfully, he’s finally able to discuss things in front of women and even found a girlfriend or two, once at the same time!

fdcac23f48bd712a5a961932106c3ea2

2.) Alcohol Is Always Needed!

To add to the last bit above, I watched the episode where Penny learns how to be a mixologist for her job at the Cheesecake Factory, and she makes drinks for all of the guys (except Sheldon of course!) and when she makes Raj a grasshopper, the poor man only has one sip before he just spills his emotions out to her which freaks everybody out, Penny included! I think she was more shocked than anything else!

I think there are a lot of people who hate how Penny is drinking in almost every episode but we also have to understand that if she didn’t have the alcohol she would have slugged Howard a long time ago!

3.) Change Is Good (No matter what Sheldon thinks!)

This is also another biggie as Sheldon is known to hate change in all forms! However, I think overtime he’s slowly seen that “good” change exists as the idea for finding a possible mate for him could have been a hit and miss until he met Amy Farrah Fowler.

Once he realized he was in a relationship with her, I think you slowly see a change in him. He’s still pretty selfish when it comes to everything, but he does seem less annoying whenever she’s around! I mean, let’s be honest nobody thought he was going to have coitus or move in with her but those were good and necessary changes to be made for him as an individual.

4.) You Are Not Ugly!

I think one of the biggest messages on the show is that people who are engineers, scientists, physicists, etc are just as attractive as anybody else! There’s more to them then they’re big paychecks.

I think besides the guys, both Bernie and Amy have very classic style compared to Penny. I’m still trying to figure out how Bernie’s choice of clothes isn’t as big of a topic than Amy. However, in defense of Bernadette, Amy does look like somebody in the 1950-60’s, which is totally fine. I mean, if it doesn’t bother Sheldon than everybody can go suck it!

5.) Nerds Rise!

Thanks to the never-aging characters of the show, anybody can be able to be a nerd freely. Unfortunately, I’m not into the comics but I love how much of the nerd community is represented. You hardly ever see comic book stores anymore and this show has them! You see how important some of these comics are to the characters. I still don’t think I’d ever risk one during a bet, ever! The reason why is it doesn’t matter who wins or loses, somebody will likely forget they even have it in their possession.

I love the episode where the girls go to the comic book store just to see why they’re significant others are so interested in them. I chose the gif above because Penny’s reaction to Thor is an equivalent’s to any man looking at a cover of a mutant woman with huge breasts.  Good luck telling me I’m wrong!

Are you a fan of The Big Bang Theory? Who are your favorite character(s)? Can you tell me a scene that makes you laugh every single time?
