Zayn – Mind Of Mine

March 25th, 2016, marks a day in history: the day Zayn Malik dropped his solo record. As you all may know, I have/had a slight One Direction obsession. When I first heard Zayn’s song Pillowtalk, I wasn’t huge on it, but let me tell you, that shit grew on me helllaaaa hard, and now I’m obsessed. Alright. Mind Of Mine. Let’s do this, track by track.

35b1058f9ccfc69ddaadd33eee29c6c2.960x960x1Photo via Genius, you can also listen to the album on there!

1. MiNd Of MiNdd

Um yeah I honestly don’t really get this song, but it’s an intro so it’s not a big deal. It sounds kind of cool at the beginning, but it’s a little strange. I feel like it would sound a lot cooler opening up a concert rather than just an album, ya know?

2. PILLOWTALK

Yes. YES. This song is my jam right now, I fucking love it. If you haven’t heard this song yet, go listen to it… Now. Like I’m sorry but how can this song not make you want to have sex? It’s a total sex song, and there ain’t nothing wrong with that. I almost feel wrong listening to this on the bus to work as loudly as I do. I like this song more than I like most of the last One Direction album. Sorry ’bout it.

3. iTs YoU

Ooooh, this one is slow. Is that a organ in the background? I’m weirdly digging it. There’s something sort of weird about this song, it’s like slow but has a good beat, and then the chorus is super high pitched (not a bad thing). I don’t know why I think this would be chill to listen to high? I don’t even smoke weed, I don’t know why I can imagine smoking to this. I’m not a fan of slow songs in general, but I like this one.

4. BeFoUr

Oh I listened to this the other day on YouTube and really liked it! Not as much as Pillowtalk, but it’s still really good. The beat is super catchy. Definitely a party jam, like I want to dance on a couch with a red solo cup in my hand, half spilling everywhere, to this song. I can already feel that this song is going to grow on me more and more as I listen to it. Also Zayn is killing all these high notes, damn.

5. sHe

Okay what is with how all these song titles are spelled… Anyways. This one is really catchy as well, another good dancey-party-jammin song. This song reminds me of a few different ones, although I can’t think of which ones off the top  of my head right now. I don’t really like this weird, electronic part in the bridge. But the rest of it I could jam hard to. Whoah okay, the ending just totally changed and turned into a different song? That’s cool I guess, but I don’t really see the point.

6. dRuNk

Considering the title of this, I was expecting some hard drinking jam. But it’s actually kind of slow, and definitely a lot more chill than I was expecting. It’s not bad, but I’m not really digging it as much as I have the others. This is more “getting drunk in your bed alone with your cat” rather than “getting drunk with all your friends having a grand o’ time” kinda vibe.

7. INTERMISSION: fLoWer

Okaaay, this sounds a little strange. Wait, wait, this definitely isn’t english. Not that that’s a bad thing, just not my thing at all. Don’t think I’ll ever be listening to this song really, but other people may enjoy things like this!

8. rEaR vIeW

Back to some dancing kinda beats, I like the sound of this one so far. This one is pretty chill, but like an upbeat sort of chill. Does that make sense? I don’t really have much else to say about this one, I don’t mind it, but it’s not as good as some others.

9. wRoNg

Sex vibes. Don’t know why, just the beat, it’s a sex beat. Kinda goes back and forth – WHOAH WAIT THERE’S A GIRL ON THIS. Ohh, okay. Alright I like this girl. And this definitely became a sex song, but not with someone you love & care about. Like a one-night stand kind of sex song. I like it.

10. fOoL fOr YoU

A slow ballad. Oh man, is this a break up song? Is the sex over? His voice sounds really nice in the beginning, but I don’t really like how it sounds in the chorus? Slightly auto-tuned sound. But the rest of it is really good, I’ll probably get drunk and cry to this song at some point.

11. BoRdErZ

I don’t know why, but the beginning of this song had a kind of creepy vibe? The chorus is good, way better than the rest of the song. I’m having mixed feelings, some parts of this song I can jam to, and some parts I can’t. Maybe it will grow on me? Oh wait whats this weird like phone line noise at the end, I don’t like this.

12. tRuTh

I like the sort of deeper vocals on this, it’s different. It’s super mellow. Honestly I’m finding it hard to write different things about each song because in a way, they all sound very similar. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but lets just say I was more excited at the beginning of this post. And I still have 6 more songs.

13. lUcOzAdE

What the hell is this song even called? I really like the beat to this one. It’s a lot more upbeat than the past few, which I’m into. I could definitely dance to this one. Is it weird I really like when Zayn swears? It’s so hot for some reason. This song doesn’t really seem to have a chorus, which some people might not be into, but I don’t mind.

14. TiO

Another sex song, I don’t mind. Maybe when I actually have someone to have sex with, I’ll make them have sex with me to these songs. Then I’ll know he’s a keeper, right? This one is super up beat, I’m like boppin’ my head while I’m writing this, I think this might be one of my favourites.

15. BLUE

At this point Zayn seems to have given up on TyPiNg LiKe ThIs, finally. This one is really slow, especially compared to the one that came on before it. Honestly it’s sort of a buzzkill? Like I was just jamming hard and now I’m just like oh.. Alright.. Sitting here waiting for the next one to start. Too slow and ballady for me.

16. BRIGHT

This one is kinda slowish, but not nearly as slow as the last one. It’s a chill slow. Oh wait it’s picking up, it’s sort of strange though. It’s not bad but I’m… Okay it just picked up in a different way, and I was about to say I wasn’t digging it, but now I am. Now I like this song, and the strange part doesn’t sound so strange anymore after the chorus, like it fits together now.

17. LIKE I WOULD

This one starts with him singing rather than a beat, and I think if I had my volume up really high, it would startle me haha. I like how it started, I don’t like these deep “ohs” in the background. OH HELL YES OH YES I REALLY LIKE THIS CHORUS. I WANNA DRINK AND DANCE AND SING AND JAM HARD TO THIS. YES. WHY IS THIS SO FAR INTO THE ALBUM!? Oh my god okay I love this one minus the weird deep ohs, but the rest of the song makes them worth it. This is a favourite for sure. Love love LOVE.

18. SHE DON’T LOVE ME

Honestly I want to listen to the last song again, but this one doesn’t sound bad. It’s upbeat and I could jam, but it’s literally about him being a fuckboy.
“I think I know she don’t love me, that’s why I fuck around”? I mean, do what you do Zayn, but just so you know, I’m available to fuck around with… I mean, what? Did I say that out loud? Okay as a still slightly bitter single lady, I think this could grow on me, I guess it’s not that bad. But the chorus kind of makes me laugh.

Overall, I’m impressed. I really like most of the songs on this album, and there are a few I could definitely jam hard to and know I will end up obsessed with. Good job Zayn, proud of you, you little boy from Bradford.

Why I Hate MTV’s “Suspect”

Recently MTV came out with a show called “Suspect”, I didn’t know much about it except for the fact Nev Schulman was one of the two hosts, who also hosts Catfish which I love, so I was excited to hear that he was going to be hosting another show. Until I found out what it was about, that is. Nev, I still love you, but I totally fucking disagree with this show. I’ll link the trailer below, in case you haven’t seen it, and/or have no idea what I’m talking about.

 

So basically this show is about Nev and his co-host iO exposing peoples secrets on fucking television. TELEVISION. I’m sorry, but ex-fucking-cuse me? Yes, lets be real, half of this is probably staged, I’m sure they got everyone’s consent, but that isn’t the point. I’ve watched the first half of the first episode, and the first half of another one, and just couldn’t finish them. I was sitting there, cringing, feeling so uncomfortable for the people on the show. I felt like I should be turning it off, because these people didn’t want their best friend / sister knowing their secret, why would they want millions of random ass people knowing it.

I’m going to create a fake scenario to explain what happens on this show. Say I was worried about Cole, but she didn’t want to tell me what was going on. So instead of accepting that, and accepting the fact that she’ll tell me when she’s ready, I contact MTV, Nev and iO, to help me LITERALLY FORCE THE SECRET OUT OF COLE. Is that not an invasion of privacy almost? They then would come out and meet with me, I would tell them I think Cole’s doing drugs or something, that I’m worried, and then they call her and make her meet up with us and tell us all, and the rest of the world her secret. Now as I said before, I’m sure these people agree to doing this, but just watching it… It’s such an awkward feeling. It doesn’t feel right.

I think the main reason why I disagree so much with this show is because I have been 100% in the situation where I knew something was wrong with one of my best friends, and it was a secret from me. It drove me crazy, constantly being worried and thinking the worst, wondering why I didn’t deserve to know. But I respected that, they were obviously going through more than I was not knowing the secret, and they did tell me eventually on their own. I believe I’m one of only like, 4 people who know. I couldn’t IMAGINE putting them in this situation, putting them in front of cameras, a crew, telling me their secret in front of everyone for literally EVERYONE to know. That idea would NEVER cross my mind. And honestly, if it were me keeping a secret from someone and they did that to me, they’d never have a chance at knowing what the secret was, because we wouldn’t be friends anymore after that.

mgid-ao-image-mtv“But Sarah… You mean you DON’T want your secret exposed on television?” (Photo via MTV.)

Nev Schulman honestly seems like an awesome guy in general, and if you haven’t checked out his show Catfish, I definitely would. That one is about people meeting people they’ve fallen in “love” with online, yet have never skyped or seen in person, and 90% of the time the person ends up being completely different. It can get pretty cray cray sometimes, to say the least. It started out as a documentary about Nev being “catfished” by a woman, and then turned into a television series. There are a lot of people who say that show is staged, which of course could be true, but I don’t even care, it’s damn hilarious sometimes. Unlike this new show, however. Honestly I’m disappointed he even came out with this, he seems like a genuinely nice guy, but hey, maybe I’m just totally taking the show the wrong way.

People deserve their privacy, and they deserve to be respected if they don’t want someone knowing something. If you have a friend who has something they’re hiding from you, chances are there’s a reason they’re keeping it from you, and if they’re a real friend, they will tell you when they’re ready and the time is right. You don’t need to contact a fucking television show on MTV of all channels to expose them and force it out of them. That just makes you a shitty friend, not them.

Top 5 TV Shows I Actually Keep Up With

I don’t watch a lot of tv, most days I don’t watch it at all. But there is a small handful of shows I do watch, so I thought I’d share them with you guys. Honestly, the only thing these shows have in common, is that I get pretty pissed off when I can’t watch the newest episode right away.

sarahs fav tv shows

RuPauls’s Drag Race

RuPaul’s Drag Race! Start yo’ engines…. Alright kitty girls! New season starts March 7th! Let’s get sickening!!! …Okay, so if you haven’t seen the show, you’re probably thinking “what the fuck is this girl going on about?” RPDR is a competition show for drag queens, to find the next drag superstar. Week by week they have a mini challenge, and a main challenge to determine who is safe, and who is in the bottom two. The bottom two then have to lip-sync for their lives (aka, lip-sync a song to stay in the competition) and whoever wasn’t as good has to sashay away. (Although that isn’t always the case… but let’s not get into that. ☕️🐸) There has been 7 main seasons so far, as well as one all-star season. There is word that their might be another all-star season this year as well, which personally I really hope happens because a lot of the queens I really enjoy always seem to get the shit end of the stick (Milk, Trixie Mattel, Katya to name a few recent ones… Can we all agree most of season 7 was kinda bs? Yeah? Okay.) If you’re into makeup, because lord knows these fabulous queens pack it on, you would enjoy this show because a lot of the challenges do have to do with makeup, especially the main runway, and you can learn a few tips and tricks from these ladies. Not to mention this shown has the best quotes coming out of the queens mouths. I promise, you’ll be quoting this show for the rest of your life.

Laganja is talking about me, obviously.

The show also has its own after-show called Untucked on YouTube, which pretty much just shows the queens bitching at each other about whatever challenge happened that week. It can be pretty fucking hilarious, just like the main show. If only it were an hour as well.

American Horror Story

I’m going to go ahead and assume everyone has heard of this show, and if you haven’t, have you been living under a rock? Its hard for me to go into detail of what this show is about, because every season has been a completely different story line, with a lot of the same actors playing different characters. Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe have been in all 5 seasons, with all of Evan’s characters being one of the main characters, Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy and Dennis O’Hare have been in 4, and Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett have been in 3. Of course these actors are all part of the main cast, and there are many other actors who have been in multiple seasons, but do you really want to read a blog post of every actor and how many seasons they’re been in? Probably not. So far there has been 5 AHS seasons: Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, and Hotel. Each a very different story line, usually taking place in a completely different state / period of time, but as you watch every season you see certain places and characters popping up in multiple seasons. The creators, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, have stated that every season is connected.  This show definitely has its dark, twisted moments, but it also has characters you cant help but fall in love with…

I mean, did any of us REALLY hate Dandy?!

I know, everyone probably thought I was going to put Tate Langdon, but Dandy Mott weirdly has the #1 spot in my heart. Poor lil baby Dandy. Leave a comment below if you’d be interested in me writing about every season individually, including my own thoughts and opinions on them!

And someone get Pepper her damn meatloaf already.

Man Seeking Woman

Okay, so fair warning, this show is fucking weird. In the best way possible, of course. In this show we follow Josh Greenberg, played by Jay Baruchel aka one of my many famous boyfriends, on his quest to find true love. He has about as much bad luck as I do except… well… I truly don’t know how to put this show into words, so instead I’m going to list off a few things that have been in some of the episodes.

  • A misplaced penis.
  • A date with an actual troll.
  • Human sized, moving, walking, sex doll.
  • Car sex. No, I don’t mean two people having sex in a car.
  • An affair with Santa Claus.
  • A relationship with a now very old Hitler.
  • Tanaka, a purple Japanese penis monster.

I mean I could go on, but do you want me to spoil everything for you? Trust me, give this show a chance. You’ll either be cracking up with laughter or staring at your tv in confusion and maybe a little disgust, a win-win situation if you ask me.

Friends always have the best advice.

Tattoo Fixers

Now this is a show I just found recently, and has quickly become a favourite. Based in the UK, it takes place in a pop-up tattoo studio with artists Jay Hutton, Steven “Sketch” Porter, and Alice Perrin, as well as their secretary Paisley Thomas. Their job is to fix some of the crudest, funniest, and down right just horribly done tattoos that people come in to get covered. Now, I don’t watch any American tattoo fixing shows so I’m not sure if its the same on them, but there are a LOT of butt tattoos these guys need to cover. As well as a few dick tattoos, and I mean that in both ways. Dicks that people have gotten tattooed on them, and tattoos that people have gotten on or around their dicks. The show also includes the owner of the tattoo explaining how they got it, which usually starts with “I was on holidays….”, “me and the lads were drinkin’ one night….” or “my mate got a tattoo gun….” Now I gotta admit, a lot of the times the cover up is quite massive compared to the original tattoo, but they usually are quite nicely done and always do hide the original tattoo well! I’ll give you a hint of what is quite possibly the most memorable cover up they’ve done, because trust me you’ll want to see it for yourself,  and if I don’t actually tell you what it is then you’ll have to watch the show. 😉 Alright, here’s your hint: it involves a dick, and a zombie.

I couldn’t find a funny gif, so here’s Jay being adorable.

Plus like I mentioned, it takes place in the UK. Who wouldn’t want to watch hot tattooed people, tattooing people, and talking in British accents, right? Right.

Orange Is The New Black

 Just like American Horror Story, I assume everyone has heard of Orange Is the New Black, and if you haven’t…. C’mon, really? OITNB is a Netflix original that pretty much took the world by storm, in fact its Netflix’s most watched series. It’s a comedy-drama that takes place in a women’s prison, and mostly follows around the character Piper Chapman, played by Taylor Schilling, who’s in jail for transporting a suit case full of drugs 10 years ago. But personally even though Piper is the “main” character, I find all the others so much more interesting. To name a few: there’s Alex Vause (Laura Preppon) who’s an international drug smuggler, as well as Piper’s ex-girlfriend / love interest. “Red” (Kate Mulgrew) who runs the prison kitchen and was also part of a Russian mafia. “Crazy Eyes” (Uzo Aduba), easily one of the most lovable, misunderstood inmates although she can be violent, and a little creepy at times. “Pennsatucky” (Taryn Manning) a former drug addict who constantly preaches about God, who was sent to prison for shooting an abortion clinic worker that made a rude comment towards her, and for this gained popularity and support from pro-life groups. There are so many more interesting characters I could go on about, and the best part is that in time you get to learn about every single one of them. And in season 3 they bring in Ruby Rose, aka everyone’s girl crush 2015.

You get to see her topless too, just sayin.

Although I would consider this show more of a drama, it definitely has some hilarious scenes. Oh and it has some lesbian sex scenes, if you’re into that. I ain’t judging. It also has a security guard nicknamed Pornstache, if you’re into that as well. I’m sure you can semi imagine what he looks like.

If you haven’t seen some of these shows, I hope you check them out and enjoy them as much as I do! xx
