may 2016 faves

I was having too much fun lately so this monthly favorites is kind of overdue—I’m aware.

May started out sort of on the meh side, but as the month progressed and my birthday came around, things were getting pretty interesting in the world of pop culture.

I had way too much fun with YouTube this month. Be sure to check out those videos below.

Here are my favorites for the month of May.

Favorite News Articles

1. Zayn Malik is too cool to wear two of the same shoes. One leather dress shoe and one Yeezy boost.

2. The new Instagram. I love the logo. It’s bursting with color.

3. Fake books. Some of these are actually ridiculous.

4. Harry Styles chopped off his locks. The fact that he made us wait in suspense to see what it looked like was just cruel.

5. This guy thought it was cool to catch up on some reading at a Beyoncé concert. What a waste of a seat.

Favorite Music

1. “Greedy” by Ariana Grande. I would so love to see this performed live!

2. “Your Love” by Yuna. I’m not particularly fond of her new album but this song is so heartfelt.

3. “Life Itself” by Glass Animals. I’ve never been this excited about a Glass Animals song. What is happening?!

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Marcus Butler gets all dressed up. Damn.

Favorite YouTube Videos

8 Not-So-Spooky Halloween Movies

Halloween Movies

I’m going to be honest here: I do not like scary movies. I just cannot sit in front of a screen while a character is being repeatedly tortured, brutally murdered and/or frightened to near death. Call me a scaredy-cat, a wimp or any other names you want–I don’t care.

I’m sure I’m not the only one, and this distaste doesn’t have ruin your Halloween film-watching escapades. No need to jump out of your PJs screaming, because here’s a list of eight not-so-spooky Halloween movies for you to enjoy!

1. Corpse Bride (2005): This move was created with so much beautiful artistry that there’s no time to feel afraid by it. Those who love a little bit of romance will enjoy this Tim Burton classic.


2. Young Frankenstein (1974): 
Turn your screams into laughs with this hilarious parody version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Who would have thought that such a horrid disaster could be so funny?


3. Disturbia (2007): 
It’s kind of hard to believe they were able to work some funny bits into this film. Become a spy while Kale, a student on house arrest for punching his Spanish teacher solves a neighborhood crime.

4. Vacancy (2007): Check into Pinewood Motel with Amy and David–or don’t actually, because you might end up the victim of snuff film. The couple’s paranoia becomes mildly laughable in some scenes.

 5. Warm Bodies (2013): Who doesn’t love a hopelessly romantic zombie? Warm Bodies will indeed warm your entire body, from the inside out.

6. Haunting Hour: Don’t Think About It (2007): This family film is based on an R.L. Stine book of the same name. Oh, and the “evil thing”? I dare you NOT to think about it.

7. Edward Scissorhands (1990): A bedtime story about a man with scissors for hands who doesn’t try to intentionally harm people, and he even styles hair?! Where can I find him?

Oscar's Hotel kickthepj

8. Oscar’s Hotel (2014): Unlike Vacancy‘s Pinewood Hotel, Oscar’s Hotel is one you might actually want to check into. This short film by YouTuber PJ Liguori (KickThePJ) is loads of fun, featuring monsters, a crazy uncle, and YouTubers Mitchell Davis (livelavalive) and Chris Kendall (crabstickz).
