Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays

Ah, Christmas Eve! The time before Christmas itself. How is everyone doing? I am doing great. My septic tank got fixed and I can use the water in my house again. I baked cookies for my grandfather and myself. I got to eat a good Christmas Eve dinner. And I have been busy writing.

I can’t wait for tomorrow. I can’t wait to see the looks on my family’s face when they see their gifts from me. Plus, we are having Asian food for dinner tomorrow. I will be posting special Christmas goodies with my work tomorrow too.  Look forward to it. I will make one more blog in 2018 next Monday. Look forward to that too. For now, good night, wait patiently for Christmas, and…

City Lounge: London (Book Three, Chapter Eight: I am My Own Woman)

Chapter Eight: I am My Own Woman:

-Sophie-

A thought crossed my mind as I sat in my living room, watching telly. Why does everyone keep trying to control me? I will be thirty soon. I can take care of myself. Mum has tried to plan out my life for herself. And looks where it got me. I’m just happy I got out before I was thirty. I couldn’t stand any of them. My mates have been asking me questions all afternoon now. I’m tempted to turn off my phone to ignore them, but then I would miss Paul’s texts.

I rubbed my forehead. More

City Lounge: London (Book Three, Chapter Seven: My Mate, Jay)

Chapter Seven: My Mate, Jay:

-Paul-

I was supposed to be going home. But then, Jay came along. Oh, boy. Whenever he comes along, all of my plans end up going out the window. He always manages to find me somehow. How did he find me this time? Let me tell you.

I was trying to go home when I had the idea to take my usual shortcut because I was just that lazy. It was supposed to be simple. Just walk down the alley, cross the street, walk past the old sandwich shop, and make it back to the flat.

It started out that way. But then, my mobile buzzed. More

City Lounge: London (Book Three, Chapter Six: Old Times in Love)

Chapter Six: Old Times in Love:

-Sophie-

As I slept in my bed, I began to dream about the days Paul and I were dating. I will never get tired of bringing it up. He was the love of my life. I still don’t know we broke up. He doesn’t know the answer either. It makes me sad, really.

Enough about that. Onto happier thoughts.

College was the best of our years. Sometimes, we didn’t spend that much time with our mates. Why would we need to? We had our own little world to dwell in. We pulled each other closer in each day. I basked in every minute of it. More

City Lounge: London (Book Three, Chapter Five: Street Performance)

Chapter Five: Street Performance:

-Paul-

I turned down the corner of the street when I heard loud music blaring further down. Hm? Is there a parade today or something? Curious, I followed the sound. I noticed two other people were following the sound as well. The music sounded like 90’s hip-hop from America. I couldn’t remember the artist off of the top of my head, but I know the song. I noticed a woman walking by with a baby stroller.

“Excuse me,” I spoke up. She turned her head.

“What’s going on today?” I asked. “Is there like a parade or something?” The woman shook her head and walked on. Okay then… More

City Lounge: London (Book Three, Chapter Four: Free on Her Own)

Chapter Four: Free on Her Own:

-Sophie-

I’m free. I’m free! I felt like running around London. I was finally free! But now what? I didn’t think about that at the moment. I was too busy enjoying being free. No stupid ass boss to ruin my life. No annoying coworkers to put up with. No soul-crushing work that mean nothing. No stuffy walls around me. I was free!

I made it to the park and flopped down onto the grass. The sky looked so blue today. It’s always looked grey to me until now. I reached up as if to grab a cloud. What could I do with my time now? More

Tumblr is a Mess!

So if you haven’t heard by now, Tumblr is cracking down on NSFW art. I do not need to go into detail as you have seen it splashed all over Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, here, and all other pieces of social media. Just go and read the post on the staff Tumblr. Why is this happening? The story goes like this: the Tumblr app got banned from the Apple store due to the child porn running a muck on the platform. So now, the Tumblr execs are trying to clean up their act in a rather sloppy way by December 17th. Now, NSFW artists are going apeshit. Granted, writers will be left unharmed by the changes in service terms. (Even though some of them are acting paranoid.) I personally am going to be fine because I am a writer. (It might effect me sharing posts from my Controversial Album Cover display in November. But, I think everything will be sorted by then.)

Everyone in the Tumblr community is pissed. Some artists are abandoning ship already. I’m not mad at all. I’m going to be fine. I just hope Tumblr sorts out this mess that way everyone will calm the fuck down. But for now…

Controversial Album Covers X (End)

Year: 2016

Zayn Malik: Mind Of Mine

xqjrc6z

The Problem: Not strictly inappropriate, despite being a baby Zayn Malik covered in tattoos, but what did have the Twitter getting its knickers in a twist was the fact it was a fairly close rip off of Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III and Tha Carter IV – featuring two childhood photos covered in his inkings.

My Take: Aw, look at how thuggish they try to be at such a young age. I don’t know much about One Direction or Zayn, but it looks like he’s trying too hard to be gangster. Or maybe it’s tribute to Lil Wayne. I don’t know, but it looks like Lil Wayne did it better.

Controversial Album Covers X (Pt. 29)

Year: 1984

Scorpions: Love at First Sting

kmy6psj

The Problem: The original cover is changed due to a complaint by Wal Mart about the partially nude embrace.

My Take: Oh, it’s the Scorpions! How have you been? It’s been so long since I had this band in my display. Compared to the other covers we have seen in this display in the past, this is actually pretty tame. You just see side-boob and nothing else. Come on Wal-Hall, lighten up.

Controversial Album Covers X (Pt. 28)

Year: 1983

Lita Ford: Out for Blood

wmv0eo1

The Problem: (My source doesn’t provide information on this cover. Comment below the reason.)

My Take: This isn’t sexy at all. It looks like she is trying too hard with this cover. This cover just looks so cheesy if you ask me. The get-up, the words in blood, the instruments in blood. Just no with the 80’s style.
