Let The Music Move You: Triple Feature

Hello everyone! It's time for another segment of Let The Music Move You. This is a triple feature. 

1. Dream For You by Casting Crowns

2. Don't You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia

3. Say Something by A great Big World Ft. Christina Aguilera Anthem Lights' Cover

Dream for You by Casting Crowns was an immediately favorite off of their new album. Don't You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia is an excellent song. I sued to listen to Anthem Lights' cover, but the original is much more upbeat and a good song when I need something to jam to while I'm writing, surfing Pinterest or deleting pins, or just writing these posts. Say Something was a song that I loved. But I didn't like the guy singing from A Great Big World. Christina was great, but I prefer Anthem Lights' cover. 

Have You Ever Listened To Any Of These Songs? How Do You Feel About Them?

Controversial: That Little Thing About Skirts Or Trousers

Yeeeaaahhh. Time for another controversial. I'm feeling debatable today. Okay. I'm sure that you all have heard about that debatable question about skirts or trousers. I know I have. Following a lot of Christian teenage girl bloggers, I hear or see it. But I don't mind. I find the argument (no, not the one about getting angry, the one about giving reasons to persuade someone that someone else is right) truly intriguing. I've always wanted to do a post on this. A lot of people who wear skirts use this verse as their reasoning: Deuteronomy 22:5 which reads: The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. But can any of us really know if God meant trousers, specifically? I mean, not to get cocky (seriously), the Bible does not say, "Women shall not wear trousers of any sort because they are for men to wear and men only." I'm just saying. Can any of us really say that we know the exact pieces of clothing that God meant? No, we really can't.

Now, here's my opinion on it: I am a wearer of trousers. I rarely wear skirts and even more rarely, do I wear dresses. I have maybe one skirt that I wear for summer because it's light fabric and it makes me feel less hot. I wear trousers because they extremely comfortable. But just because they're comfortable, doesn't mean that they fit or look appropriate. I mean, there is this phrase: 

Which is so true. I watch what I wear, as does everyone in my family. We care very much about our modesty and covering up, despite us not donning in skirts and dresses everyday.

Look, there's absolutely nothing wrong with wearing skirts. I mean, they really are cute and a lot of girls simply just love them. There's nothing wrong with that. But when these kinds of things come up, things turn into arguments, about which is the "right" thing to wear.

But here's my view on it: Both are okay. Completely 100% okay! My thing is, make sure it covers everything that needs to be covered and maybe even a little more. The shorts I wear in the summer usually meet my knee caps or below. I have one pair that come up to the middle of my thighs that I use for sleeping, scrubbing our bathtubs or walking on our inside treadmill. NEVER would I wear that certain pair outside any of our home doors. Make sure that the skirt/trousers aren't too tight, make sure you can breathe and move around comfortably in them.

The thing is, skirts or trousers both are okay to wear. I've seen shorts that leave little to imagination, same with skirts. I think that as long as you pick wisely, it would still be modest.

As always, I am having two polls on my sidebar. Please vote, I'd love to know what you guys think and even leave a comment so I know who votes what!

So There's My Opinion On The Skirts Vs. Trousers Debate! What's Yours? Vote And/Or Comment!

Bonnie And Clyde The Musical Review

Okay. I guess I've always known about Bonnie and Clyde since getting into Broadway. I never really got into it. It was one of the musicals where I was like 'Yeah, I've heard of it, but it doesn't spark my interest that much." Well, just a little bit ago (Like a week or so) I don't know why, but I heard about it again thanks to and I was like 'I somehow remember 'Dyin' Ain't So Bad" I want to hear it again'. So I listened to it and I really liked it. So I looked up more songs and clicked the first one I saw. Which was "This World Will Remember Us", which I LOVED, despite the one curse word in it. And from there, I was hooked. I was disappointed to see that it was taken off of Broadway, but I got to see the full show on YouTube. It was recorded by someone in the audience (THANK YOU!), but yet it was still in pretty good quality. Best part about it, was that I knew who Jeremy Jordan and Laura Osnes were. I remember seeing Jeremy Jordan on a segment of Disney Channel in Newsies and I saw him as Clyde and I was like 'Oh it's him!'. And, I learned about Laura Osnes (which I first heard was from Cinderella) from a family member. So, I was glad that I knew the main characters, at least. I will be reviewing this honestly, and truthfully with some spoilers just to let you know about certain things before you dive in to watch it and are horrified by what you watch. 

WARNING: Cursing from the musical involved, all bad words are "**" (bleeped) out!

Okay...... The music was brilliant. And I love the plot of it. But I was just a teeny weeny bit disappointed with the way it was acted out. Don't get me wrong! Everyone did a great job, but it was just, kinda, 'eh' for me. The music and the cast made it wonderful. Now, now, I still loved it. Basically, you just need to read the plot. And if you don't know who Bonnie and Clyde are, just look them up. They're robbers and murderers. Actually, people don't really even know if Bonnie ever killed or shot at anyone. Anyways, that should tell a little bit about it. I loved the back flash-scene ("Picture Show") and how it went from young Bonnie and Clyde to older Bonnie and Clyde. And I also loved how on the wooden boards creating the background, how they showed real photographs of their deaths, mugshots, shot-up automobile and such. It was really cool. Did I mention that I absolutely love Jeremy Jordan and Laura Osnes? No, well I DO!! Ahem. 

Okay, this musical has a lot of cursing in it. For instance, there is a song called "Raise A Little H***" (in which I don't listen to) I usually stay around the songs "Picture Show", "The World Will Remember Me", "The World Will Remember Us", "Dyin' Ain't So Bad", "How 'Bout A Dance" and occasionally "Bonnie". And there were some more curse words like "d***" and "s***". 
This musical is a romance/drama/action/adventure/comedy. The romance part doesn't go beyond serious kissing, though Bonnie is seen in her undergarments for a few minutes, though it is a bit racy. 

Overall, the music was good. The plot is excellent, the execution, probably a 6 out of 10. I think just with a bit of a rewrite, it should get a second chance on Broadway. Though I won't be watching the musical again any time soon, I'll certainly stay with the music. The music is great. For all those people who maybe don't like the way show tunes and musical theatre sound, maybe you should show them this. The music sounds more gospel/rockabilly/bluesy than musical theatre-ish. I don't know; Just a suggestion. 

If it were up to me to rewrite it, I would take out as much cursing as I could (without messing with the songs) and make it a little less racy and romantic. There are ways to make a romance romantic without all the lovey-dovey elements. Anywho, I loved this musical, immensely. I'll admit, I'm a little obsessed with it right now, but I know it's a phase that I will grow out of soon. ;) 

Rating: 7/10
1 point off for the curse words
1 point off for the too romantic parts
1 point off for the execution

Attention Please!

Hello everyone! I usually don't post two days in a row, but I felt the need to alert you of something. Some of you may have noticed that I changed my header. If you like it, that is super awesome. But I am still not sure if it will be official. My first header was just for start-up and now, I am looking to make an updated one. So, if you visit my blog and there's a new header up everyday or so, it's probably because I'm fiddling around with new headers and trying to resize it. So, hopefully, you won't think me crazy with having a new header everyday! Which is why I'm alert you. Soon, I might even leave it up to you and have a poll of which one you like better! Who knows? And if you have any ideas, leave a friendly suggestion below. I just might use it (and give credit)! 

So, Just A Little Post Today, But I Thought That I Should Warn You! Leave Feedback And Ideas If You Like!

When You Wish Upon A Star Disney Blog Party ~ My Favorite and Least Favorite Disney Movies

Hello, to all! This is my list of my top ten favorite movies. There will be ten for animated movies and ten for un-animated movies. So, without further ado, here we go:

1. Atlantis: The Lost Empire

This movie has been my favorite Disney movie of all time. I used to watch this all the time, all the time when I got sick and had to stay in bed. My mom and my sisters thought (and probably still think!) I am obsessed with it, and it's true. I just loved the action, I love the courage that Milo and Kida had. I loved the antagonists, because they were just so mean, just like an antagonist should be. I loved the music and I guess this also sparked my interest in Atlantis. It's not a huge part of my life at all, but when I re-watch the movie, it does make me wonder. So, despite how much I love new Disney movies, this has to be my all-time favorite. It's been the one favorite that I never seem to forget. 

2. Frozen

This is a duh moment. If you follow my Disney Days board on Pinterest, you'll know how much I love this movie. I mean, I really, really, love it. Fist, let's kick off with the characters. My favorite character is a tie. Between Elsa and Olaf, Anna not far behind (probably like .25% behind) I love Elsa, because she is truly like me. I never really saw it until I took a test. But it was just "the test" that determined it. It was the description under it. 

"People see you as a sweet, but complicated person. You don't
open up to others easily and often act in a way outside
the norm. You are loving and extremely loyal.
You have a creative nature and a great intuition."

"You are a bit misunderstood, but underneath that cold
exterior you're a powerful, caring, kind-hearted person.
You'll do anything to protect those closest to you,
even if that means sacrificing your own happiness.
Fortunately, your powers will ultimately work for
the greater good." 

Anyways, the top one describes me the best. I didn't believe it until I saw it. But now I see it. Olaf, who doesn't love Olaf? He's adorable and helpful and caring. Besides, who doesn't want a snowman pal? Anna, is so quirky and adorkable, I just love her. Kristoff is a great character, though I don't know why everyone loves him so much. I mean, I do, but just not as much as other people. Hans. Hans, I don't have anything to say about him. The Duke of Weaseltown (yes I spelled it wrong, sue me) is just mean. Nothing to say about him either. I loved the music! I just love musicals period. My favorite songs are "Let It Go", "For The First Time In Forever Reprise", "For The First Time In Forever", "Do You Want To Build A Snowman?" and "Frozen Heart". My least favorites are "Fixer Upper" and "Love Is An Open Door". I love the scenery, especially Elsa's ice castle. I love what my sister calls "African-sounding music" in the very beginning and the end where Elsa takes all the snow away.

3. Tangled

"Break her heart?" "In half." "Crush her soul?" "Like a grape." ~ "We did it." "Hr hair glows." "We're alive!" "Her hair glows!" "Eugene!" "WHY DOES HER HAIR GLOW?" Haha, some of the best lines in this movie. I loved this movie and I still do. I'm such a Disney junkie, no shame here, sorry. I loved the scenery, though not as great as Frozen. I loved the characters. Rapunzel is great. Young, free-spirited and she has a heart of gold. There's not much more to say than that. Oh, did I mention that she's wanted to see the floating lights all her life? And that she's super awesome with a frying pan? Anyways, onto Flynn Rider ahem Eugene Fitzherbert. I loved him. He was so carefree as a thief/orphan, but throughout the story, we see him grow to be a caring young man, and he even goes back to just being Eugene. I love him. And now we come to Javert. I mean, uh, ahem, Maximus. But seriously, someone on Pinterest pointed it out and know I'm like "I know right?!" He devotes his time to tracking down Eugene. They make up in the end. Mother Gothel, the antagonist. I love singing "Mother Knows Best". She truly is one of the best villains. Pascal is just that little helpful sidekick, and though silent, he's awesome. This movie was a little darker than I expected, same with Frozen. I didn't mind it at all, but it just seemed a little darker than Disney's usual hit animated movie. Anywho, this is by far, one of my favorites. 

4. Hercules

Yay! I love this movie! It's another "oldie" like Atlantis. I used to watch this every single time that I went over to my Aunt's house. I didn't care if it froze or not! I usually had to wait forever until it would skip ahead a little and unfreeze. It' about the Greek "god" Hercules, and how he became immortal and has to get back to his real home on Mount Olympus. I love him, because he seems like such a relate to and realistic character. He has his flaws, his struggles, his strengths (literally) and his weaknesses. Meg is another main character. She's feisty and a I-don't-need-a-man's-help kind of woman. I love her. Seriously, she's one of the best female Disney characters ever. Phil and Pegasus speak for themselves. Though I don't believe in Greek "gods and goddesses" it's still a fun good watch for the family. 

5. The Hunchback of Notre Dame

This movie. I love this movie, despite it being sad and depressing now that I've read the real book by Victor Hugo. Thanks a lot Monsieur Hugo. Quasimodo is so much like Erik from POTO. Quasimodo is in a way deformed, he's hunchbacked and he can't hear. I think he has like one eye or something. He;s been hidden away from the real world in the Notre Dame Cathedral in the bell tower by his "master" Judge Claude Frollo A.K.A. jerk of a guy. Esmeralda is another main character and she's another one of my favorite female characters. She so strong and smart and caring. Phoebus, love him in the movie, I'd slap him in the book if I got the chance. Clopin is another favorite of mine in this movie, and the gargoyles are too. I love the music and the sights of Paris are stunning!

6. Beauty and the Beast

Ahh. What a breath of delight. I love this movie. Belle has always been my favorite princess. I love the Beast. Oh, how this movie now reminds me of POTO. Can't you just see it? But I guess Belle could see past the appearance, unlike Christine. The music is beautiful, like any musical really. I love Lumiere , 'cause let's face it, he's the real deal. Though I had never been a fan of Cogsworth (I thought he was a party crasher) I still love Chip and Mrs. Potts. Annnnddddd "No one shoots like Gaston!" and "No one eats five dozen eggs like Gaston". I know these aren't in the real order or anything, but seriously, no one does. 

7. Pocahontas

Ah, what a story. This is a good movie. And all y'all can get upset that Pocahontas really fell in love with John Rolfe, but it's a kids movie. Don't take it so seriously. Anyways, I love this songs in the movie. Especially the deleted song "If I Never Knew You". I love Meeko, too. Just the story is a nice one. 

8. Brave

"I don't want to get married! I want to stay single and let my hair flow in the wind as I ride through the glen firing arrows into the sunset." Best line ever! I love this movie. I know Merida's bratty behaviour throws it off, but it's still a good lesson for mothers and daughters. I love the action and adventure and it's another darkish movie, but I don't care! I love the songs like "Learn Me Right" and "Into The Opera Air". Though not really keen on "fate" or "destiny" other than that, it's fine. 

9. The Emperor's New Groove

"Boom Baby!" "It's my birthday gift to me! I'm so happy!" "Pull the lever, Kronk! WRONG LEVERRRRRR!" Who doesn't love this movie. About a self-absorbed llama, ahem, I mean emperor Kuzco, on his journey with a "whiny peasant" named Pacha, an eveil wanna-be empress named Yzma and her sidekick Kronk? It's a hilarious flick about all that. Where that llama learns how to be less self-absorbed and all. 

10. Up

"I was hiding under your porch because I love you. May I stay?" Aww, Doug. I love this beginning of this movie. A silent like 8-minute short of Carl and Ellie's love life is still better than all the Twilight books and films put together. It's such a sweet sad story. I love Russell. Just a happy optimistic kid of happiness. And let is not forget about Kevin!

Least Favorite Animated Movies: 

1. Alice In Wonderland

Ugh. This movie, I still dislike very strongly to this day. I can't describe how I feel about it, other than i don't like it. It's creepy and when I first watched it, confusing. I mean the Cheshire Cat and the mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts. I don't get into that kind of stuff. At all. 

2. Pinocchio 

Same as Alice and Wonderland. I really don't care for it at all. 

3. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

This is definitely my least favorite Disney Princess movie. The evil queen is relentless and creepy. The dwarfs are just dwarfs and Snow White, well, she's still practically a child at 14! And the prince is nothing special either. I mean all he does is sing to her and kiss her lifeless lips. At least Prince Phillip fought for his princess! Seriously!

4. The Jungle Book

Um, boring, weird, not a fan at all. 

5. The Jungle Book Two

Announcing the sequel to boring, weird and not a fan at all #2!

6. The Fox and the Hound

I don't know why, but this is makes the list. I also don't like how they grow up at the end, but in the sequel they're young! Makes no sense at all. 

7. Dumbo

This is kind of a eh movie. I remember as a kid that the "Elephants On Parade" scenes CREEPED ME OUT!! It was just weird. 

8. Bambi 

The same as Fox And The Hound. Just a "I don't know how it made it onto this list, but it did" movie. It even did the same grow up in the first film, be a kid in the sequel. Really weird.

9. All Winnie The Pooh Movies

I just don't get into these. usually for childhood movies like this it should be like "aww, I remember these. They still have a special place in my chart." I'm really, really, sorry, but not for me. 

Favorite Unanimated Disney Movies:

1. All The Chronicles Of Narnia

I love all of this movies. I'm just glad that the movie was better than the book! 

2. Remember the Titans

Where do I start with this movie? My dad introduced us to this movie a long time ago. I love it. It's a true story of how a black man and his team join a white man and his all-white team and how they learn to work together. They find out, that they are all the same and the colour of skin doesn't matter at all. They learn to be a family. I've already claimed this for when I go off into the world. :)

3. Miracle

"Again." *Whistle blows* "Again." *Whistles blows* Wow. Just another really good true story of how the American hockey team finally won a gold medal in the Olympics. This another one of this inspirational "wow" movies. 

4. National Treasure

Action and adventure. Speed and thrill. That's what I love about this movie. And, it actually makes American history look fascinating. So, I love it. I especially love Riley! He's such a good hilarious chap. 

5. Newsies

"Who can hear that lousy whistle blow? Because the world WILL know!" Mwaahhhaahhaa. I don't have to say anything about this, because you all should know why I love this. 

6. Lemonade Mouth

Okay, okay. I know this isn't a "Disney" movie. So before you all jump on me, just lettin' ya know that I know. I kinda ran out of movies. But I'll bet I'll think of a million others after this blog party. I love this movie. It's a Disney Channel Original movie. It's about five average high school kids who meet in detention and become a band. A great movie about friendship and standing up for what you believe in. 

7. Starstruck

Ah, another cheesy Disney Channel Original movie. It's about a average girl from Michigan who goes with her sister and parents to Hollywood, California to visit their grandma. But after a mishap with a teenage heartthrob, the girl (I must add, she doesn't like this celebrity at all) find that the guy isn't so bad at all. Typical cheesy love story. Figures. That's probably why I like it. 

8. Sky High 

Yes! Another one of my old favorites. A fantasy film about superheroes who go to a high school in the sky, only for kids with super powers. They learn how to use their power and such. They defeat evil and everything! 

9. Enchanted

Hehehe. What a movie. Half animated and half not. With a quirky head-in-the-clouds princess, a serious down-to-earth divorce lawyer and an evil stepmother, what a movie! Just watch it, and you'll see why I love it. 

10. Holes

"D-I-G. What's that spell?" *hits with shovel* "Dig!" I love this movie. I love the story of "Kissin' Kate Barlow". The story is about this young kid who falsely gets convicted of a crime that he did not commit. He goes to a camp on Texas where you have to dig in the hot sun until the warden is satisfied. While there, he meets some friends, but one is very peculiar. I can't tell you anymore, because you'll just have to watch it to find out! 

I Hope You Enjoyed My Slight Reviews Of These Movies, Both The Bad And The Good!

When You Wish Upon A Star Disney Blog Party ~ The Tournaments Round 2

And here comes round two of the games! This is a game of how well you know the songs of Disney! Here we go! 

  1. "Skip the drama, stay with Mama. Mother knows best!" 
  2. "Oh, I'm such a fool, I can't be free! No escape from the storm inside of me. I can't control the curse. Oh, Anna please, you'll only make it worse!"
  3. "And I'm almost there! I''m almost there. People gonna come from everywhere and I'm almost there. I'm almost there!" 
  4. "I thought my heart had learned its lesson. It feel so good when you start out. My head is screaming 'get a grip girl' unless you're dying to cry your eyes out."
  5. "But if I know you, I know what you do. You'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream."
  6. "Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest. Come taste the sunsweet berries of the earth. Come roll in all the riches all around you and for once never wonder what their worth." 
  7. "Be our guest. Be our guest. Put our service to the test. Tie your napkin round your neck, cherie and we'll provide the rest."
  8. "I'll touch every star in the sky. So this is the miracle that I've been dreaming of."
  9. "What would I give, if I could live out of this waters? What would I pay, to spend a day warm on the sand?"
  10. "Unbelievable sights. Indescribable feelings. Soaring, tumbling and free-wheeling through an endless diamond sky." 
  11. "This love, it is a distant star, guiding us home wherever we are."

Okay, round two here we go! The rules are the same. Except name the song. If you can name the character and the movie, those are worth one bonus point! 

Have Fun and Play Fair!

When You Wish Upon A Star Disney Blog Party ~ The Tournaments Round 1

Alright! Who's ready to rumble? Haha, so sorry, I had to. But here we go with a game of quotes! 

Here's how it's going to work: 
1. Every correct answer to the question at hand is worth one point. Since this is a "quotes" game, if you can name the movie, also, you receive one bonus point. 
2. Leave your answers in the comments section. WARNING: Your answers will not be published, just for the sake of the game being fair and all. I'll keep track of everyone's points on my personal laptop and the answers and the winners will be posted at the end of the week. 

Without further ado let the games begin: 
  1. "Thank you, 'cause I figured out what your problem is too. No, you're a no-count, philandering, lazy bump on a log."
  2.  "All right! Let's go kiss Hans! Who is this Hans?"
  3. "I could get used to a view like this. Yep, I'm used to it. Guys I want a castle."
  4. "My daughter speaks with the wisdom beyond her years. We've all come here with anger in our hearts, but she comes with courage and understanding. From this day forward, if there is to be more killing, it will not start with me."
  5. (first character) "Aren't you... a damsel in distress?" (second character) "I'm a damsel, I'm in distress, I can handle this. Have a nice day."
  6. "Let's see, there's one, two, three, four, five... ten of you, and only one of me. What's a poor girl to do?"
  7. "Hm. Teenagers. They think they know everything. You give them an inch, they swim all over you."
  8. "Pretend I'm Merida, speak to me.[shrilly voice] I don't want to get married, I want to stay single and let my hair flow in the wind as I ride through the glen firing arrows into the sunset."
  9. (first character) "Would you like to stay for dinner?" (second character) "Would you like to stay forever?"
  10. (first character) "It looks awful." (second character) "That's because it's on you, dear."
  11. "Rob? Tsk tsk tsk. That's a naughty word. We never rob. We just sort of borrow a bit from those who can afford it."
  12. "What if Andy gets another dinosaur? A mean one? I just don't think I can take that kind of rejection!" 
You have to name the character(s) that state them. Hopefully these won't be too hard for you to guess. 

Best Of Luck To All Of You!
