Topics I've Started

Lana Del Rey vs. Lorde

29 September 2014 - 06:19 PM

Okay, so yeah lol I was on youtube last week and endend up seeing a fight about Lorde and Lana Del Rey and who's truly original. I just wanted to know what you guys think about both singers. Do you think any of them copy each other? Do you like them both? Hate? Like the message they give? Don't think the fans should fight about their originality and etc. I personally I'm not a fan of either of them, but I do enjoy some of their songs.

Of course I'm not encouraging anyone to come here and actually fight about that. All I want is to hear your opinion about it :D please let's just talk.


I think IU's singing is monotonous

First of all, no offence to any of her fans or her. I just think she kind of goes nowhere with her voice and it's like when I hear a song from her I feel like I heard most of her songs. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing her or saying she doesn't have talent. She does have, I think so, I was a fan. But after a while, I felt like she wasn't giving me a lot of dynamics or showing different sides of her and her voice.
Anyways, I'm not just telling what I think. I wanna know how many of you really like her or could show me songs where she showed dynamic and a different side of her voice. If you have, please show me ^^
And what are the singers you feel the same way I feel with IU?

Remember I'm not here to bash and I'm not inviting anyone to do so. I only wanna know what people have to say about this subject. Singers that make you bored because they sing the same way most of the time.


Totoro is the angel of Death

10 January 2013 - 07:16 PM

Okay, this really freaked me out. Lats year I watched "My Neighbor Totoro" and I thought it was just a Japanese movie, I liked it and everything. But then, I found out about this thing. Some people actually believe that Totoro is the angel of death and not just a spirit that helps the kids. I was scared while I read.


Here's the explanation about it:
1.It is saying that Totoro is in fact messenger of Death, and whoever sees him will soon die. The hospital that the sister's mother was in was based on a real hospital for terminally-ill patients.

2. Later in the story the villagers find a slipper in a pond, which is in fact May's, at this point she has already drowned in the pond. Satsuki lied that the slipper wasn't Mei's out of denial. Ever since this scene, the sisters appeared to have no shadow.

3. Satsuki pleaded the Totoro and the cat-bus to take her to where Mei is, while on the cat-bus, says "Nobody can see us...", this scene is Satsuki leading herself to the land of the dead (by taking the cat-bus).

4. At the hospital, the mother says "I think I feel May and Satsuki smiling there in that tree..." Why don't the sisters go and see their mom if they are already there? Why do they just leave the corn there instead? It is said that the sisters were dead at that point, and the Japanese pronunciation of "corn" is similar to "kill child".

5. The final scenes seem to be a happy epilogue, but they in fact happened "before" the major events in the movie.

6. The movie was set in a place in Japan where there was a case of murdering of two sisters which happened in the 60s. This event took place on May 1st, while the sister's names are Satsuki (May in Japanese) and Mei (May in English). In the real life case, the younger sister was missing first and the older sister was seen to be looking for her frantically. Next day, the younger sister's body was found in the forest (stabbed to death). The older sister was in such a state of shock and kept rambling ambiguous words about seeing a "cat monster", "great big racoon monster" etc to the police. The sisters were in fact from a single-parent family (mother died of illness).
