My Favourite Things: July 2015
Didn’t post a My Favourite Things in May and June, but oh well. Here’s one for July anyway. :P
Movie: Kung Fury
Technically I watched this one in May, but I want to mention it anyway.
If you haven’t heard about it before, Kung Fury is a crazy over-the-top short film created by David Sandberg and crowdfunded on Kickstarter. It’s based on pretty much every 80’s action comedy ever made.
If you decide to watch it, don’t expect a “good” movie because it’s not. It’s not serious in any way. The film is 30 minutes packed with every silly stereotype you can think of, including dinosaurs and David Hasselhoff. It’s a video game on steroids. Or possibly acid.
Personally, I just loved it! I laughed so much my sides hurt afterwards! A+
Music: Tom Waits
Remember what I’ve said about dark and gritty voices? Tom Waits has the kind of vocal cords that makes my skin crawl, in the good way. The song Hold On was used on an episode of The Walking Dead and it’s currently one of my favourites.
What can I say, I love the “grumpy middle-aged man” type of music. :P
But it’s so hard to dance that way
When it’s cold and there’s no music
Well your old hometown is so far away
But, inside your head there’s a record
That’s playing, a song called
Hold on, hold on…
Tv: Season 3 of Orange Is The New Black
YES! This is one of the few shows that has neither supernatural monsters nor magic and STILL manages to keep me absolutely captivated. I fell in love with the ladies of Lichfield right away, and 3 seasons later my feelings hasn’t changed one bit.
I love watching the character’s backstories, and was really happy to see Chang and Big Boo’s histories being covered in this season. Suzanne and Sophia are still the characters I’m rooting for the most though, they are just so important and adorable.
*NOT SURE IF BELOW IS A SPOILER BUT I’M WARNING YOU ANYWAY*
Piper is a pretty horrible person, but I can’t say anything about her taste in women. (Men on the other hand… What was even the deal with Larry?) Alex is sex on legs, and Stella… oh my god <3 *fans self* I really hope Stella/Ruby Rose will come back somehow in the next season.
