How's it going my gumdrops? Are you liking the latest scenery? The turquoise, teal, and aqua colors have been brought back to It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns. The more I look at this background, the more it reminds me of 1 of my drawers full of these colors.
Sometimes I feel like the cartoon character Lois Griffin, for example.
Literally, I have 1 drawer of blouses and T-shirts that are nothing but turquoise, teal, and aqua. You may recall from my interview with bassist Sean Yseult, that we both love the colors blue and turquoise. She laughed when I told her, that turquoise has been dominating my wardrobe lately.
My family usually buys me turquoise clothes for birthdays and Christmas. This year, they gave me a break and bought me more clothes in different colors for my birthday.
Speaking of, you may recall that I went out to celebrate my birthday, as well as my friend's birthday with our friend, last month. I forgot to mention that there was a cover band performing, while we were at Hart Park. The cover band was awful.
Listening to that cover band perform the theme song to Ghostbusters made my soul weep on the inside. It was God awful. It was like listening to people try to sing at a karaoke bar.
Luckily, we did NOT have to pay to get into the Hart Park. If we had to pay to get into Hart Park, I would've demanded back my money. My friends and I were mostly sitting and lounging on the grass, as we talked to each other.
Meanwhile, my friend, who was celebrating her birthday early with us, allowed her son to play with the other children. With all of us talking to each other, it helped to somewhat drown out the horrible covers being performed.
Considering that we are on the topic of Ghostbusters, it has been YEARS, since I last watched the movies and their cartoon, The Real Ghostbusters. Believe it or not, I still have the original Marshmallow Man action figure from 1984.
Marshmallow Man is somewhere in storage, along with my Ghostbusters Gear and other toys from my childhood.
By me bringing up the topic of Ghostbusters, I'm sure your enquiring minds want to know my thoughts about the reboot. If you have been following me for the last 1-3 years, you already know that I hate MOST remakes and reboots, whether they are movies or shows.
I CANNOT help siding with most Ghostbusters fans, that are against the reboot. The constant remakes of classic movies is the main reason why I stopped going to movie theaters after 2005.
Yes, there were some new and original films, that were released in theaters over these last 11 years. However, a good portion of Hollywood films have been shitty remakes and reboots. Also, most movies today come with some form of political propaganda.
Don't get me wrong, there have almost always been some type of political, moral, and/religious themes behind movies. At the same time, their messages were NOT extremely visible to the extent, that it was oppressive with propaganda.
Why should anyone have to spend a fortune to be chastised and oppressed, when they are paying to be ENTERTAINED?
Just think about it. Would you want to pay $10 or more to go see a movie or a concert only to be lectured about your views and lifestyle? I sure as hell don't, which is all the more reason why I quit going to the movie theaters.
Imagine paying $10 or more for a movie ticket, spending the first 10 minutes watching political PSA's, then having to sit and watch a movie filled with political propaganda. If you are someone like me, who doesn't enjoy fighting everyone about your political views, you would be annoyed.
I do NOT encourage and/condone trolling the new cast of Ghostbusters for being a female dominated cast. Although, I feel that Hollywood filmmakers are out of ideas for creating their own films and mostly want to promote and oppress everyone with their political views.
Originally, the cast of Ghostbusters was male dominated in 1984. The 2016 reboot is female dominated.
Why didn't the filmmakers turn this reboot into a long overdue sequel with the original characters handing down the proverbial torch to their daughters? That could've been more interesting.
Instead of going that direction, the filmmakers wanted to promote a "feminist" spin by re-writing the story and making the male characters female. This has been my overall stance about reboots in general and the Ghostbusters reboot for now.
Because today's blog is mostly Ghostbusters centric, I will leave you with Ray Parker Jr's "Ghostbusters" for today's Song Saturday.
