Do you love The Lonely Island? I like’em just fine! And they’ve made an Oscars song that stars Thor and Wonder Woman! That’s pretty fancy and I’m glad we all get to enjoy it!
As for the Oscars themselves, I’m glad Shape of Water won. I think it was my favorite movie out of the nominees I saw, though I felt Get Out should have won, as it was the better movie. At the very least, I’m glad Phantom Thread didn’t win, because I didn’t see it, and I was convinced that they’d pick some artsy movie I didn’t see.
This popped up late last week and is just delightful! Weird Al compiles the Alexander Hamilton songs into a polka! Because that’s the world we live in and it can sometimes be amazing!
And I find it a good way to start a Monday and a week.
I love Teen Titans Go! I know some fans of the original Teen Titans cartoon don’t care for it, but I love it to stinkin’ heck! It’s hilarious, it’s wild, it gleefully trolls those fans and when it goes balls to the wall, they go all the way to the damn wall! Like in this amazing music video!
That’s “The Night Beings to Shine” from Fall Out Boy. I haven’t seen the episodes yet, but apparently the dragon is trying to steal the song, which is Cyborg’s favorite song. And apparently that requires the Titans to go full 80s electric insanity on his dragon butt! I gotta watch those episodes!
Steven Universe is great, for a million different reasons. And the music is definitely one of those reasons. Steven Universe has got some great songs. And now my favorite, Stronger Than You, has an official music video with singer Estelle. Cartoon Network filmed it at Comic Con last week.
Estelle voices Garnet, who sings the song in the show. It’s about the power of love and relationships and stuff. You’d understand it better if you watched Steven Universe, which you should.
By all accounts, 2016 has been a pretty crummy year. I still can’t wrap my head around most of it and it’s been more than a month. And I’m still disappointed that the Warcraft movie wasn’t a bigger hit. That thing had so much potential! I still like it, and that’s all that matters to me.
Anyway, like most online writers, I figure I might as well wrap up my favorite bits of pop culture in 2016.
As with the changing of the tides, so too come the end of year Best lists. But unlike really cool, professional websites who watch a ton of movies and know what they’re talking about, I only really pay attention to four things: movies, video games, TV shows and comics. And every year, I scramble to fill in the final two slots to make a List of Six. So sue me.
Join me after the jump for my favorite bits and pieces of 2016!
