Youngblood by 5 Seconds of Summer – Review

After three years, 5 Seconds of Summer have released their third album titled ‘Youngblood’. The band quickly rose to fame after opening for One Direction on their world tour and they have spent years working non-stop, going from touring straight into the studio, releasing their sophomore album ‘Sounds Good Feels Good’ one year after their self-titled debut album.

Your Name Review

 

Here comes yet another article on anime. This time, it’s a review on the critically acclaimed anime film Kimi no Na wa or Your Name. Your Name, directed by Makoto Shinkai, was released in 2016, however it is only recently that it started showing in theatres here in the Netherlands, which is what I’ve been waiting for since it came out in Japan. Your Name is ranked #2 on MyAnimeList and has a rating of 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. It has surpassed Spirited Away as highest grossing anime, won sixteen awards, and is nominated for many more since its release.

Joji: a music review

George Miller is a Swiss army knife of talents. His biggest claim to fame is his YouTube channel, TVFilthyFrank, with 5.2 million subscribers. His online alter-ego, Filthy Frank, can be described as nasty, painfully politically incorrect, and an anti-vlogger. Besides Filthy Frank’s content, TVFilthyFrank also hosts the music videos to Miller’s other alter-ego: Pink Guy. Over the past few years, Miller has released three Pink Guy mixtapes. Pink Guy’s music can be described as comedy rap full of memes with some pretty sick beats.

In Defence of Cats

 

Recently, I’ve gotten into the cat-sitting business. April has been pretty hectic so far, as I have been up and down Amsterdam taking care of all sorts of cats.

Now I’m not implying that their current cat-parents are neglecting them, but when they’re on their own for the majority of the day, they just want some good ol’ lovin’.

Cult documentaries

 

We’ve all seen those lists: “10 Cult films you have to watch!!!”, “5 of the best cult films ever!!!”, “You’re not a true film-lover until you’ve seen these cult films!!!”. Donnie Darko, The Big Lebowski, Fight Club, The Room, I’ve seen those lists and I am no longer impressed. What I personally would like to see is films about cults, and after careful consideration, I have gone on a binge-watching frenzy to find the best documentaries on cults. This binge-watching fest made me feel a bit crazy, as it was followed by a conspiracy theory spree, so I recommend watching these with caution and perhaps with a few days in between viewings. In other words, don’t follow my example and watch three films on cults in one night. If you do, you may find yourself looking over your shoulder more often than not, and squinting your eyes when your friend says they’ve joined a meditation group. You have been duly warned.
