About

This is my (Fresh Jai's) voice on books, old music and movies only uncool people have seen or heard. I didn't mean for that to sound hipster. I'm honestly not that great, but feel like I'm getting better all the time.

YAY ME!

I'm here when I have something to review and the time to actually review it. That being said I want to apologize for not being around all the time.

*I do a Google search for almost every picture I find and put on here, so unless otherwise stated or marked with FreshJai I DO NOT own any of these pictures.*

This week I’m binging on all things Hilary Duff. From the best show ever to Coming Clean, To Cadet Kelly, I’m hitting all my favorites featuring Disney Channel’s original pop princess.

I’m might do some reviews, but this is strictly about having fun, no judgement.

Tee Shirt- Birdy

Just got done re-watching The Fault In Our Stars movie and thought I’d share my favorite song off the soundtrack. 

Tee Shirt sums of the simplicity that makes up Hazel and Augustus’s little infinity. It’s pure and lovely, a lot like Birdy, so it makes sense why she is featured several times on the soundtrack.

Could listen to this forever.

Mad At Myself- Issues

I don’t know who to feel sorry for right now. When I listen to the song by itself I hear a breakup, where the girl is an evil leech and the guy is upset for “giving in.” My theory after watching the video a couple times is that, the guy is messing with the girl because he feels hurt or used, which if that is the case, turns the song upside down for me.

This video gave the a far darker tone to the song than I felt it had before. It made it kind of creepy and a little unsettling at times.

Someone just give me clarity on whatever this was, please.

If you’re looking for something to make you laugh, cry and appreciate your family then this movie is it.
I watched the play version and though I liked it, I thought it was a bit much, mainly because of what can and was done on the stage as apposed to the film. It gave me a Soul Food kind of vibe, with way more laughs. If you can get passed Teyana Taylor as the most annoying baby momma ever, I believe you’ll love this movie.
PS: I think it must be said that, I love Loretta Devine, and consider her a grandmother type, so the movie get points for her alone. The whole cast was great, but she’s my fav.

Thought I’d come and do a quick early review of this semi-new show.
Like a lot of trailers seem to falsely deliver, I thought this show was going to be good, but it’s leaving much to be desired. There’s a lot going on at once and when you couple that with no breathing room or time to really process what’s going on, someone like me is bound to get tired.
I thought if you got Shonda Rhimes and Viola Davis together you’d have something amazing, but that doesn’t seem to be the case here. It’s only 3 episodes in, so hopefully they give me something to latch onto because I’m about to shut it off.

People have often said Heathers set the groundwork for movies such as Clueless and Means Girls, which I loved. Sadly my love for both of those films and high school 80’s movies couldn’t bring me to love Heathers.
Have you ever just wanted someone dead because they were mean to you or someone else. Me? No, but that’s a big theme in the movie. There have been girls and even guys that I’ve disliked, but I only wished them to Siberia, not to die. Basically if this was satire on either suicide or homicide, I’m NOT laughing.
This movie just left an uncomfortable feeling in my heart. Clueless was mean fluff and Means Girls was shedding light on how anyone can turn into a nasty person and had an overturn of the “it crowd”, so there was still space to enjoy the characters in each film. The majority of Heathers’ characters though, just seemed to be evil, without real feeling and that was very off-putting. 
Now some of you may latch onto the dark nature of this movie and feel it was truly something special in the world of “Mean Girls”, but this is one clique movie that I can’t roll with.

Take Me When You Go- Betty Who

The wonderful, Australian Queen, Betty Who just released her first full length album. If you’re into the whole, fun, hella bright, pop scene then she’s definitely worth a listen. She’s different, but in a sweet way.

The one thing that can make me like a band 10 times more than I already do is for them to go and put out an acoustic album and that’s what State Champs did today. Acoustic pop-punk just brings on the feels, so someone come enjoy this with me.

Orphan Black Season 2 

I know I totally skipped talking about season one after I watched it, but I just finished season 2 a few weeks ago and it was so good, I couldn’t not come talk about it.

First and foremost Tatiana Maslany is an amazing actress. She plays 90% of the cast and does a fantastic job while she’s at it. A force to be reckoned with.

Review:

Crazy, demented, fun is what this show is. I checked out the first season with my dad when it came out on dvd forever ago. The first episode was just weird, and I didn’t know if I could really get into it. It wasn’t until they brought Helena on that I started realizing just how twisted and addicting this show is.

While I’m glad they’ve added more clones, I’m pretty attached to the main four, plus Felix and Kira. Everyone seems to have a hidden secret this season. It’s hard to figure out who you can trust and it that trust is a full thing. The fact that Donnie is playing more of an active roll and not just some supposed monitor is great too. He’s funny in a scared way.

Season two is where they seem to really be playing up that shock value. There were several cringe invoking moments, that me and my dad both shared, most of them rightfully involving Helena, my favorite clone.

She is creepy more than half the time based on her ridiculous, religious upbringing, but there are times when she can almost be sweet. The jury is still out, but I believe she’s not completely ready to join the good side, too many people have taken something away from her or in this season given her. I’ve even changed all my sister’s names to Seestra in my phone.

The whole idea of the show and clones is intense, so be prepared.

I tried not to spoil anything, but as an added bonus I’m including some prediction I have for the next season.

Upatey Thingy.

Hi. A lot is going with me right now, but I have news. By next week I should have internet in my house, this has been a long time coming. Basically I’ll be able to update this blog more often like I’ve been talking about forever. Get ready to be sick of me. Maybe. I don’t know.

With constant Wi-fi I’ll be adding new features all the time because I feel like it. I just started a new one called news. I always have stuff I want to talk about, but never do because they’re not “reviews” so I finally, in the form of a new tag gave myself the space to do such things. It’s located under the extras tab. Let’s see what else I come out with.

Thank you for not reading this.
