So the 2015/2016 fashion sucks. Everyone wears the same right? Boys where black denim skinny jeans, or jogging bottoms? Shirts buttoned up to the top or a plain white top with one word on that they dont actually know what it means...Right? What about the hair? Every white guy in American went into that barber shop, and said 'Give me that Macklemore hair cut'! Is it a matter of self esteem? Why does everyone want to dress the same now? We are no longer individuals! Once upon a time, if you were an individual you were a 'hipster' now if you dress like everyone else or ridiculously, you are a 'hipster'?
Our self-esteem is what we build our life upon, and when we have confidence we feel more that we should be ourselves and create this identity we have. Obviously you can't buy confidence, and it's just a subjective matter, but the concept of labeling someone through what they choose to wear or consume can lower ones confidence deep deep into the ground.
What does hipster actually mean? Well without taking to Urban Dictionary, to find some word boggled definition, a hipster is a guy or gal who creates their style, and avoids the mainstream? Right? Ok, in reality some might believe they know everything in popular culture, wear glass lens glasses and driving Starbucks coffee, but really, they have made their own identity right? So what's so bad about that?
When did being hipster become a bad thing? When did calling someone hip become a bad thing? You mean that because someone wears what they like, whether they resemble Danny Zuko, A lumberjack, or Noel Fielding, they are being original and making their own original identity. It suddenly became something around five years ago where if you didn't wear what everyone else did you are laughed at or a 'Twat' or something else that is not quite clean for this blog post. But yet, why should you jump on the band wagon and do what everyone else does. It's not then your identity, its everyone elses too. You don't get recognised for blending into the crowd, you get recognised for standing out, being your self.
Be yourself - Top tip, be hip, dont be a jock, go to shpock, and buy a second hand frock, Be loud, and be very proud. Don't join the train, grow your mane, don't refrain.
I have tried to be a blogger for sooooo long! But I must say, I have had this particular blog for about 4 days. Not long at all. But I would really like to say Thank You to those who read this blog. As the stats have been telling me, I have had more viewers and unique viewers in the last 4 days than I have on any of my blogs in a year. I can tell you now I have had quite a few.
About once a week I'm going to tell those who come to my site some stories and a bit about me and what ever else, so I'll leave that for now! I YouTube, you can hear me and see me there too! I'd love it if just one of you watched one of my videos, there is one just attached to this site on this site. I also podcast twice a week where I discuss good bits of the news and funny stories, not sure if I will carry on or not with that or not, but hey ho, we will see!
So Frozen became the biggest animated feature film ever in 2013 when it hit the big screen. But how come the wonderfully brilliant Tangled isn't anywhere near as popular? Rapunzel's Tangled was released two years earlier, in 2011 and Tangled has all the right elements for a Disney mega-hit. So, why is Frozen loved so much more?
Guys who will sit on a stool on a stage with a guitar and a microphone. Damn those guys are good.
Music is a big part of my life, in the last 18 months I have seen 28 live musicians and have another 4 booked up before the year is over. I love music.
But I must say, some of the biggest artists on the planet, which I too love, SUCK! I have seen Take That twice, once upon a time they were rather big, now not so much, but they are still widely loved by the world over, and no one can really turn down a cheeky listen to classics like Never Forget or Pray! Likewise I have seen the well loved Olly Murs who was an excellent performer and a brilliant show man! On the other end of the scale I have seen the rather ancient singers like The Pet Shop Boys and Neil Diamond who all these years on still impress.
you will come out of the film knowing that you hadn’t wasted your life and that actually, yeah it was quite a good film!
So yesterday my girlfriend went once again to the cinema to see another Disney film. This time it was the remake of the classic not-so-classic Pete’s Dragon from the 70s which you probably saw when you flicked through the channels when staying round your grandmas.
Why should I be judged on my writing skills, in a History examination?
So today A-Level examination results were received, which means that whether you are a teenager, parent or friend of someone who is finding out their results today, you are under pressure in some way.
Last year I gained incredibly bad anxiety that put me under a lot of pain, all because I was worried for the outcome of my exams. I revised all the time, as I felt guilty not revising, but over all, the knowledge didn’t go in. The problem was, my English skills!
...genuinely wonderful, the visual effects are brilliant
So Disney’s newest spectacular Zootopia (Or Zootropolis, depending where you live!) has hit DVD now, so whilst it was at the cinema, I went along with my Disney loving girl friend to see the film.The film is based around a murder mystery sort of film, only cartoon, and without the murder. All predators and prey live together in the city of Zootopia. ‘When Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) becomes the first rabbit to join the police force, she quickly learns how tough it is to enforce the law. Determined to prove herself, Judy jumps at the opportunity to solve a mysterious case. Unfortunately, that means working with Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), a wily fox who makes her job even harder.’
