Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

Hi guys. Happy Sunday. Today I made a conscious decision to take care of myself, and canceled the 2 events I had for the evening. I wanted to see Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie with my brother, so that’s what … Continue reading

Kubo and the Two Strings.

You guys. I’m so fucking irritated rn. Like I’m gonna cry haha. Dramatic, but I’m serious. So I haven’t fully moved in. Yes since July smh. But it’s legit just this last pile of jewelry that I’ve been meaning to go through to see if I can get rid of them. I legit don’t wear ANY of the jewelry I’ve hoarded throughout my 10 years of being a shopaholic. It’s so fucking sad. They’re nice too. And they’ve just collected dust the entire time.

But anyways. I legit spent an hour before the movie untangling these necklaces. They were all hanging on a hanger and the movers just fucking wrapped paper around it and taped it and threw it in the box. I guess what else are they gonna do but damn they fucked me over haha so frustrated. Not only did I waste an hour of my precious Saturday earlier, but now there are these 3 necklaces left that are SO fucking tangled that I can’t get. Like, not just one string necklaces too, multiple. Layers. I would legit pay someone to untangle these rn. No joke. I’m so sad haha.

ANYWAYSSSSSSS. Today was a fail lmao. I really cannot be smoking during the day unless I’m on vacation because I get NOTHING done. It was fun, but then you realize how much you failed and you’re just like damn haha. Like I was so on schedule with my laundry, and I went back to go switch it… come to find I never pressed start. WTF is that shit haha. Okay. Let’s talk about Kubo haha.

First of all, this movie got motherfucking 96% haha like WHAT. And it’s not even Disney. Idk what it is, but it’s lit haha. I was so mad cause my boss saw it with The Game and his daughter lmao like TFTI bro. Jk. Kinda. It was at my theater too haha AMC Century 15, which I hit tn.

I legit can’t get the name right lmao I have to keep referencing. Like I said Kabo earlier. Smh.

7pm showing. I thought it would be way crowded but it was like the opposite haha. The theater itself was actually crowded, but the movies not so much. We luckily copped three seats in the middle. I asked my two hgs to come. I love when my friends are d for movies haha <3. Shout out to them for coming.

Here’s the IMDB plot: A young boy named Kubo must locate a magical suit of armor worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past.

This is as simple as it gets bc that shit was HARD to understand. Fr, how do little kids follow this haha. Idk. I was also HELLA tired and distracted when I first sat down haha it hit me out of the blue. My hg actually turned to ask me a question and I had my eyes closed lmao I was like SHIT. But yeah, the story is a bit confusing. Also, just found out this was PG which is good bc there was def some violence haha. I was like there’s no way this is G.

Anyways. It was really cute haha and entertaining. Kubo is Asian too, shout out to my people lmao. It’s like an hour 40 minutes. Not bad at all. Idk. I don’t really see the appeal to little kids but my hg said they’re like a new generation haha and dif way of thinking. Makes sense. This goes back to my phobia of getting old haha. Speaking of…

Earlier today, we all hit our team member’s baby shower. I never know what to call him. I don’t like saying co-worker cause that’s too professional, team member just sounds off. Idk. Homie fits but I know him from work. Lmao who cares, moving on…

We were sitting at the table, my hg and her bf. My fav couple I love them haha. But yeah I straight up was going off about how I don’t want to live past 30 SMH haha. First of all, I pulled up dumb lit lmao. It was like at a church in Inglewood, and it was lit. Like decorations, party favors, food, setup, games, everything. I was like so in shock for some reason. It was my first baby shower and the reality of like grown up shit always trips me out. More than it should tbh.

Like my girl’s bridal party I recently hit was a trip. And then this. Too much. Honestly though, they’re so fucking cute haha. I’ve never met his fiance, and was super excited to. This dude (the baby’s father) is legit one of my fav people. Genuinely just so fucking lovable. I love those people man. So far from this, but I hope I can impact people in a positive way like this. It’s so great.

Guys I won the raffle! And I don’t win ANYTHING haha. It was a movie which I ended up giving away lmao bc I honestly would do nothing with it. Just excited I won something haha. I brought diapers to enter that damn raffle. It was so awkward copping them at the grocery store haha.

I’m so scattered rn haha but yeah anyways. I need to get my life together. Real. Talk.

Sorry for rambling. Muah.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Dom Kennedy dropped this last night and I about had a heart attack lmao. Love.

EVEREST.

TGIF has never failed me more than today haha. It was honestly a day from hell. First of all I missed my first class. Cool. Good job Shirley. Second, I got a parking ticket. It was a risk I took not paying for my parking this time, and low and behold, a white and red envelope on my dashboard. That shit hurt mayne. I legit may hold the world record for parking tickets. It’s been a while though. So maybe it was God reminding me I hold that record still.

SO THEN… I’m heading to Westwood for my doctor’s appointment, one that was long overdue. All of a sudden, my tire blows out. Okay so… the day before. Me being me, inpatient af, was trying to cut some LA traffic, and I decide to go through this gas station. You know, since I just couldn’t wait long enough to turn right. I go into the gas station alright, but not through the ramp. Nope, right into the curb. My car was fucked, and I knew it. So the tire pressure symbol comes on. In my mind I’m like, ugh okay. I’ll just stop by the body shop on my way home from the doctor’s. Lesson learned. Don’t wait if you have car problems.

So I pull over on the 10 freeway, at the on ramp merging west, right before the Normandie/Western exit. It was terrifying. The cars were going mad fast, whizzing by me. I took a quick pic- and ran back to safety. My tire disintegrated guys (I had to look up how to spell that). I was shocked. It like disappeared into thin air. It was terrifying too. What if I couldn’t pull over in time?? AND THEN, fuck Farmer’s Insurance. Their roadside assistance had me waiting an hour and a half, for absolutely nothing. I finally called the police and they came and called me a tow truck. But honestly, I was so mad about Farmer’s. I started crying. And then I was like, why am I crying? In my mind, their job is to help people like me in need. So how in the fuck are they failing rn?

Alright I’ma shorten this story. So then I go to my doctor’s, who decides to lower all my medications. Like cool. So I’m pissed. AND THEN, he goes off on how terrible pot is for me and how it’s making me stupid. Bruhhhhhh. He’s a crazy psychiatrist fr, but I’m never met anyone who hated weed more. It’s so damn interesting. He went in on me though, enough to make me want to find another doctor. Sigh. No time.

AND THEN, my brother informs me I can’t drive on a spare tire, which I really tried to not believe. After confirmation, I make it out of the doctor’s just in time before Firestone closes. Unfortunately, they were so backed up, my car took another 2 whole hours. Oh my gosh. The technician said someone had just quit and there’s only 2 of them. I felt bad- my attitude towards the situation did not help at all.

Went to the pharmacy after to fill my meds and then hit the gym. I hate cardio machines, the worst. LA Fitness cracking fasho though. I felt like for half the crowd, this was their night. The other half was so ready to turnup after their sesh. During this sesh I listened to Fetty Wap’s new album. Yes, his singles are dope as hell, but I just felt like every song sounded the same. What was the hype? Casey Veggie’s though. His album is dope af.

So what better way to forget a bad day then at the movies. Convinced my gay bestie to trek to AMC Century City 15. Okay fine, I’m obsessed with their AMC Stubs Card. It’s legit though. It’s a rewards program where you earn points and get free $10 credits once you reach a certain number. You also get free upgrades. So here’s where I complain. 3D Imax cost $20.99. Next joke. That’s like, a joke. It hurts.

We were handed the 3D glasses before we walked in. These were actually legit, not the flimsy disposable ones. Maybe that’s where all our money goes. Jk. Also, it didn’t register Everest was Mt. Everest. I question myself sometimes…Anyways, the movie was super dope. Super perfect for Imax 3D, so glad we did that. It really felt like you were there, in the scene. It was such a trip though.

First of all, it tells you in the beginning it’s based on a true story. Which made it that much more intense. It showcases two groups who try to reach the top of Mt. Everest, which is the highest point on earth. Whoa. It was so vivid. The ticket guy actually said he hadn’t seen the film because he was scared of heights. Now I know why. I thought the film was overall great, and starred Jake Gyllenhaal and Keira Knightley. Is it bad that gave the film credibility off the bat?

I was never bored the entire 2 hours. The film did a great job portraying the drastic conditions in the snow and in the mountains. When the storm hits, things go from bad to worse. They also had little oxygen, and had to survive off a supply of oxygen tanks they brought. Many who tried to climb the mountain, never left. They were stuck in the freezing snow, hands and feet literally frozen. I die in LA as it is in the winter. What they went through on that mountain made me feel really guilty. It looked like straight torture.

There was one scene where they go around the group, asking why they’re risking their lives to climb to the top of a mountain. The responses were interesting. One girl from Japan said it was the last of the 7 summits she has yet to climb. Another man said he wanted to be a role model for his kids: that you can reach dreams, no matter how bizarre they were. That was my fav.

Amongst the deaths and death scares, this film really took us on the treacherous journey these climbers went through. It was one most people would not dare embark on. It also shared a lot of intimate moments between characters and their relationships.

TRACK OF THE DAY: This track hit the spot after such a long crazy day. This closes out Casey’s album Live And Grow, which means it has to be powerful. Apparently, he’s had it done for 2 years now. Okay I can’t find a link to the track, so here’s a short clip about it.
