Spring Music 2017

Last year I've made a post of my Spring or Summer and Fall Music post. If you haven't read those you can find them by clicking the links above. :)

This year there have been tons of new songs and albums, but sometimes throwbacks are the best! For instance...





Of course the newest is also sometimes the best...




Here are a few, slightly more, random songs I've come across...






Of course I have 21 Pilots on here.




And of course Troye.


I may have another group at some point so sign up by email and you'll get emailed when I post! :D

Mid-Season Recommendations

If you weren't aware there are several shows that start their season when other shows are in the middle of theirs. Agent Carter, Galavant are examples of shows that follow this schedule. I personally like this type of show, it gives you something when other shows are on hiatus or just wanting something new.

I usually depend on the internet to watch my shows of choice. So unfortunately I don't have a sign in to watch certain episodes. :(


You can catch Shadowhunters on Freeform on Monday nights. It is on episode 9 out of 20. I watched the first season and loved it, so of course I came back for season 2!


Beyond is also a Freeform show, the pilot and 2nd episode are available for anyone to watch. If you want to watch the entire series you'll have to sign in. I would recommend this show from the little I've seen.

Powerless is on NBC. At first glance the story line is charming and interesting. However once you actually sit down and watch an episode or two you may discover as I did that it isn't all it could have been. Powerless is a little to reliant on their stereotypical characters and forget to make it interesting. It reminds me of every other comedy on NBC and other networks.


Legion stars Dan Stevens, which is what drew me to the show in the first place. The trailer looks amazing and I couldn't wait to watch it. When I tried to find it online I realized it is on a Fox channel and isn't available at all without a sign in. I was very disappointed, but I would still give it a try.



Emerald City is a (you may have guessed) Wizard of Oz related fantasy show on NBC. If it wasn't for the witches/witchcraft I'd be down. It's interesting and I would be willing to watch the entire season as it comes out.

I didn't know Humans was on AMC. Or that it was a televised show at all. I saw the first season on Amazon Prime and didn't realize until the new season started that it airs on AMC. From what I've seen it looks like it's kept my favorite characters but also expanded the world.


Riverdale is this season's Stranger Things. On CW and apparently Netflix Riverdale is blowing minds and becoming a new fan favorite. Although it's a little teenager-y, the writers managed to not conform to the stereotypes to badly and make it interesting for an adult audience.



Feel free to ask about my favorite characters, ships, or anything else! :)


Update! There is another mid-season show that has just premiered that I didn't know about before. It's similar to Timeless, but slightly more focused on the characters. Jack the Ripper somehow gets his hands on a time machine and HG Wells chases him to the future.


Sounds pretty cool right?!

Doctor Strange

This isn't my favorite Marvel movie it isn't even in my top 10. However I wouldn't mind seeing it again or even owning it.

 It has several pieces that fit information into the overall Marvel Phase. Another Infinity Stone is revealed and an end credit scene featuring Thor and mentioning Loki. (Setting up Thor Ragnarok.) I definitely liked the movie.


 The story line centers on Dr.Strange, the best neurosurgeon in the world. Who after being in a, career ruining, car accident goes on the search of a cure, or a miracle. He gets more and more desperate and several months later ends up in looking for a miracle in the streets of Nepal.
He doesn't find a miracle, but he does find a bald Tilda Swinton in ornate robes who is known as "The Ancient One". If you don't know anything about Doctor Strange or the basic movie universe in which it exists, you may be a little weirded out for a few minutes.

It should all start making a little more sense however and be a little less intense once Doctor Strange starts to learn the mystic ways of the bald sorcerer. After struggling with the powers he has been newly introduced to. He finally understands that his hands are unrepairable, but he can do much more, if he actually tries.

 He quickly accells under the teaching of Mordu and "The Ancient One" and since he doesn't listen to rules or other people he even manages to learn about some of the more dangerous parts of their world. The sanctum that Doctor Strange is learning in is one of three that protect the earth from dark forces. They must be protected or else many people will die.
A sorcerer named Kaeciliusto is trying to unleash Dormammu of the dark dimension. (Because it wasn't ominous already.) Kaeciliusto trained under the Ancient One, but went rouge. Kind of a Darth Vader situation there.

While still training Strange, Mordu and fellow sorcerer Wong who is keeper of the artifacts and spell books, see through a portal that one of the other sanctums has fallen. A large collapse of debris blows
Doctor Strange into another portal to the third sanctum in New York City.


After battling Kaecilusto and defending the NYC sanctum, Strange is reunited with Mordu and Wong. Before he finds his friends/fellow sorcerers he meets a very animated character. When I said animated I mean excitable, However it is also literal in the fact that it is a CG levitating cape. The cape helps him capture Kaeciliusto temporarily.  To stop him they must keep him from taking down the other two sanctums. Which is when it gets really interesting.


If I didn't know so much about the original story from the comics etc. I probably would have enjoyed the movie more. As it is I'm more excited to see the sequel. Since I won't know what is going to happen half the time. Like I did with this one. I didn't know how funny some of the scenes would be though. For a series movie it had it's fair share of comedic moments.

Christmas 2016

I got a good mixture of DVDs fandom memorabilia and clothes. That's pretty normal for me. So here's the geek related stuff. :)


I ended up getting Star Trek Beyond, Now You See Me 2, X-Men Apocalypse, Alice Through the Looking Glass and The Shallows.

 I also got a Star Trek 50 years magazine and a Hobbit Pez dispenser set. Kinda random, but very cool. I also got the Stan Lee Graphic Novel Biography, which I forgot to take a picture of.
