Sing

Fangirls, I love musicals. I also love animated movies. Bonus: I love talking animals. Sing was practically made for me. Coming from the team behind Secret Life of Pets and Despicable Me, Sing seems like the answer to Disney’s Zootopia; a story set in a world without humans. It stars an adorably crafty koala, who is on his last ditch effort to save his theatre. He hopes that by creating a singing competition (where auditions were open to the public), he would be able to sell out the theatre and settle some of his debts. Unfortunately, the flyers made for the competition had some extra 0’s in them, so the grand prize is advertised as $100,000 instead of $1,000. Oops.

Later that night, I was taken on an intense & hilarious sci-fi adventure that I loved every minute of.

krampus_23With the holidays fast approaching, we must think of all the special seasonal characters that come around to excite us. We certainly can’t forget the few that exist to scare us, too. However, in traditional American holiday time, there’s not really any characters that exist to frighten us. So, I figured we could borrow one from another culture for awhile, and learn about the odd and frankly terrifying ways of Krampus.

Let’s Talk About: Kids & Sex Education

Fangirls, this week’s sex chat may be a little more thought & opinion focused than fact. Of course, there will be a lot of solid information, but it’s hard to discuss the facts on a topic that’s still got a lot to figure out. I feel pretty passionately about sex education in schools and it needing to be more thorough. However, just as the country & the system are, I’m still figuring out exactly how that should be done.
