Rant!!!! I love a good rant! I actually haven’t done an authentic rant post in a while and I’m trying to get away from ranting and such because it focuses on negativity. All of that being said, I’m going to take this opportunity to rant about a couple of things!!
The Great Gatsby…or Rather, The People Who HATE It- OK, I am a VERY big fan of people having their own opinion and if you have real legitimate reasons for not liking this movie version, have read the book, and knew the type of films that Baz Luhrmann makes and still disliked it, then that’s fine. However, if you have never read the book and didn’t happen to understand the kind of films Baz Luhrmann makes and then hated Gatsby just because of the way this version was made, I have no time for you, and I’d like you to shut up.
If you read the book you’d understand that some of the themes of the book are represented beautifully in Luhrmann’s version of Gatsby. The excess, the over the top quality, the ridiculous aspect of so many of the parties, etc… Furthermore, what were you expecting from this movie? Did y’all not see his version of Romeo + Juliet? He takes artistic liberties with stories to tell them in a way that he interpreted them and that in my opinion, fits! It’s fine to dislike something but at least have some knowledge of it before you go talking negatively about it.
This Chrissy Teigen/Farrah Abraham Debacle- I can’t get into all of it because I don’t feel like it but you can read it here. The gist is Chrissy Teigen called Farrah a whore and then the entire Twitterverse decided Chrissy was a “slut shamer” and then it turned into a massive, MASSIVE, pile of nonsense. I’m not going to get into specifics but I think the entire thing was utterly ridiculous and blown way out of proportion and the fact that people claimed Chrissy Teigen was a bully and turned Farrah into a victim is just, too much for me.
The Scandal Finale- aghpehapteihapijapjhphapawhwa?!?!?!???! Dad?!?!?!?!??! Say What????? And poor Jake? And Dad? What? ahtpeihjtiwehtpawtujaotj!
RUDE Men- Let me preface this by saying rudeness is not specific to men and I will give people a pass because sometimes you just have a bad day…but that’s still no excuse. However, this week I’ve had some experiences with EXTREMELY aggressive and rude men and I have NO time for that. I personally have a HUGE issue with men being overly aggressive and/or rude to women because I equate it to me, a grown woman, yelling and going nuts on a child. IT IS STUPID. Sorry if I upset the feminists but I’m a woman and I need you to treat me as such and with respect and all that good stuff and all your aggression and rudeness needs to be 1. handled personally by you, cause that’s YOUR issue, not mine and 2. MOST DEFINITELY not taken out on a woman. I personally think that aggressive behavior often times leads to violence and we don’t support violence against woman (by men) so why is it acceptable for you to get all loud and angry with a woman? Oh wait, it’s NOT!
Kanye and Kim- I’m totally into Kim and Kanye and if Kanye is happy because of the two, Kanye is my priority. LOL! That being said, I’m tired of whiny, miserable Kanye, who hates paparazzi. I would be fine with this Kanye if he didn’t decide to impregnate Kimmy K. If you hate having your picture taken and being in the media than you probably don’t need to date the biggest fame whore on the planet. Furthermore, Kanye may actually be a bigger attention whore than Kim but he’s better at it. So perhaps instead of whining about it and looking miserable EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. his picture is taken, he could just teach Kimmy how to play the media the way he does.
And smile in a damn picture Kanye, SMILE.
No really, the scandal finale!!! ahtp3apheiaphtjpwahta!!!
People Who Think Their Time is More Valuable Than Yours’- Listen, we’re all busy and we all have things to do but I come from the school of thought that says, everyone is equal. I don’t think anyone is more important than someone else and I respect everyone’s time equally. Time is a valuable commodity and I get that but to have the assumption that your time is somehow more valuable than another person’s is unacceptable.
People talking about the guy on CNN wearing the “she wants the D” shirt, after the Moore tornado, shut up. Sorry his shirt was stupid but you don’t have time to change for severe weather.
Beyonce, where is your single? Why do you hate us??
Where are SOA/The Newsroom/Homeland???? Why do they take so long to give me new episodes of this show!?!?!?!
