Before we begin this October Favorites post:

IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO VOTE AND HAVE NOT YET DONE SO, KINDLY DROP EVERYTHING NOW AND GO TO YOUR POLLING PLACE. YES, IT’S THAT SERIOUS. GO FREAKING VOTE. LIKE, NOW. THANK YOU.

With that out of the way, let’s just jump right into my favorites in pop culture and entertainment for October 2018.

Fall 2018 Halloween Costume Party Playlist

This fall, I’ve decided to wait until near the end of October to bring you a Halloween Costume Party Playlist!

The following playlist can serve as both entertainment for your Halloween party and a list of generic costume ideas, as each song title is the name of a common costume.

Enjoy!

1. Ghost, VHS Collection. Starting this party off with a smooth ghostly rhythm.

2. I Am Not A Robot, Marina and the Diamonds. Try to convince the computer CAPTCHA that you’re not a robot while in costume 🤣

3. E.T., Katy Perry. “Could you be the devil, could you be an angel?” No. An extra terrestrial.

4. Monster, Lady Gaga. Try not to eat anyone’s heart out tonight, okay monster?

5. Oh Devil, Electric Guest ft. Devin Di Dakta. “Oh, devil, I know you’re afraid…”

6. I Can’t Be Your Superman, Skylar Spence. Uh, yeah you can! No one can stop you from being superman tonight. Literally.

7. Mannequin, Britney Spears. Practice those mannequin dance moves in the mirror before the party and blow everyone’s minds!

8. King, Grades. Enjoy being treated like a king all night.

9. Queens, Rulers. Grab your girl group and dress up like the queens you know you all are.

10. Rocket Girl, Lemaitre ft. Betty Who. “You can call [her] rocket girl.”

11. Cheerleader, Omi (Felix Jaehn Remix). Did you find yourself a cheerleader at the party?

12. She Wolf, Shakira. Beware of the “she wolf in the closet.”

13. Doctor, the bird and the bee. Let’s just hope no one needs a doctor by the end of the night because chances are they’re just in costume.

Have a happy and safe Halloween 2018!

 

September Favorites: #DoTheLilo & ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ Live-Action Series

September 2018 is one of those months I’d prefer not to remember. It just reinforced my hatred for politics.

Also, RIP Laurex 😥

Anyway, let’s just jump right into my favorites in pop culture and entertainment for September, shall we?

Favorite News Articles

1. #DoTheLilo. Umm, okay, sure. Idk if this dance will really catch on here though, Lindsay. Maybe in Greece?

3. Maroon 5 is performing for half-time at Super Bowl LIII. I AM SO HYPE.

Favorite Music

July Favorites: Celine Dion Memes & Childish Gambino’s ‘Summer Pack’

July 2018 had me all over the place.

It went from jaw dropping celebrity engagements to Demi Lovato’s hospitalization (glad you’re doing alright now, girl!), and I’m seriously beginning to think this is going to be the most emotional summer ever.

I hope the wedding planners of Hollywood are ready for this (looking at you Justin, Hailey, Nick, and Priyanka).

My carpal tunnel has been acting up over the last couple of days so let’s keep this one short and sweet with minimal commentary:

Favorite News Articles

1. My fave of the Celine Dion memes: “Trudeau window, to the wall.”

2. Congrats are in order for the recently engaged couples Hailey Baldwin & Justin Bieber, and Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas!

3. This is what happens when you mess with journalists, Daily News.

Favorite Music

1. I can’t tell which of these two super smooth summery tunes I like best from Childish Gambino’s Summer Pack EP.

2. “Soulmate” by Justin Timberlake is just what I needed this summer.

Mid-Summer 2018 Foreigners Playlist

As many of you guys know, I love listening to music by artists from different countries around the world. Therefore, I had a fun idea that should make a cool playlist featuring a few awesome tunes by my favorite international artists this summer.

It’ll be like a little vacation for your ears!

Some of these are by artists from non-English speaking countries that sing in English (you’ll be able to hear some of the accents). Others are in foreign languages.

Enjoy the tracks below from my favorite foreigners.

1. Jamaica/UK – Bad Love ft. Ellie Goulding, Sean Paul. Wasting no time getting down with this one.

2. Greece – A State Nearby, NTEIBNT ft. Σtella. Sending chills down your spine with these ominous vocals.

3. Sweden – Hotel Beds, Summer Heart. Here’s to all the comfy hotel beds we’ll be hopping into this summer.

4. Zimbabwe – Juice, Bantu. Drink up.

5. Barbados – Only Girl (In the World), Rihanna. The Caribbean queen demands your undivided attention.

6. Panamá/Jamaica – Dame Tu Cosita, El Chombo ft. Cutty Ranks. This calls for a dance session in the mirror.

7. Austria – Mambo Rap, Parov Stelar. Try to keep up with the lyrics.

8. France – Science Fiction, Christine and the Queens. Feast your ears on the French version of this tune with a dash of Italian.

9. Spain – Pienso En Tu Mirá, ROSALÍA. Time for some Spanish telenovela-esque BAMF drama.

10. Brazil – La Edad Del Futuro, Glue Trip. Don’t let the Spanish title fool you.

11. Australia – Chateau, Angus and Julia Stone. Summers + chateaus = fancy bliss.

12. Germany – So Into You, Wilhelm Tell Me. Cruising into this summer love real smooth.

13. Malaysia – Rescue, Yuna. There’s no way you can feel anything but safe and tranquil while listening to Yuna’s voice.

14. Canada – We Were Here, LIGHTS ft. DCF & Gray Grey. Got a double Canadian feature here (singer and remixers)!

15. Denmark – Calabria, Enur ft. Natasja. Close out the summer with this dance party favorite!

Bask in the rest of your summer!
