My Experience: Melanie Martinez Concert

Published August 1, 2016 by makeuponatightbudget

Recently I went to a Melanie Martinez concert at the Cleveland House of Blues. The HOB isn’t my favorite venue as it’s General Admission and I’m short. It’s hard for me to see things and see over people. I much prefer having seats because at least the levels are graduated and if possible I can stand on the seats to see things better. I made an entire post about my outfit and makeup at my beauty blog which you can visit here.

I thought the doors opened at 6 pm so my friend and I decided to leave around 4:30 or so. I live about a little over an hour from Cleveland. We actually ended up leaving at 4 pm and arriving at around 5:30. This was both a good thing and a bad thing because there was already a line to get in (and of course because it’s Gen Admission, where you are in line matters) around the corner from the doors. People had been lining up probably around 3 or 4 pm, some maybe earlier than that. My friend paid the extra 20 bucks to park in the parking garage that was down the street from the venue. We were kind of concerned about walking to the car at night in Cleveland so we were glad to find a space in the garage. Where we were in line wasn’t too bad and the line kept on getting longer and longer. The show was completely sold out. And on top of that there was an Indians game that very day too. Tuesday was such a weird day to have a concert.

I ended up standing for more than 2 hours outside. I didn’t want to sit down and get anything on my dress and I wore 3 or 4 in boots because they were the only shoes I had that matched. They’re comfortable shoes but standing in one spot for a long period of time goes straight to my heels and makes my feet hurt so bad. Apparently the doors didn’t open until 7pm, so like I said blessing and a curse that we got there early.

Eventually we got into the venue and I didn’t really get a good spot. I could barely see. Almost everyone in the audience was a teenager, with braces, and being overly excited and vlogging about the experience. I hate that her main fanbase is literally 12-18 year olds. It made me and my friend feel like we were the only two adults there voluntarily, while the other adults were like…parents watching their children. On top of that all these stupid teenage girls were freakishly tall and I couldn’t see a damn thing. By the time we actually got into the venue my feet were killing me. During the opening act, which was Handsome Ghost (some hipster neo emo group I’ve never heard of but were actually pretty decent) I took off my shoes and just stayed barefoot until Melanie came on. The cool thing was that during the break between sets the HOB staff handed out plastic cups of water to the concert goers for free. It was a really hot day and all of us were crowded in such a small space. The water was ice cold and ridiculously refreshing and appreciated. I thought this was really cool of the HOB to do. The bar also set out small cups of water for people to take freely.

Around 8 o clock or so Melanie’s set started. There was like a 3-5 minute intro that seemed to last forever. I didn’t actually get to see her when she popped out the crib but the HOB Cleveland page actually posted it.

Like I said I’m too short and was struggling to see most things. I had to experience half the concert through other people’s cellphones. Melanie doesn’t talk much in between songs so she preformed the whole concert in almost complete silence. She said a few things here and there though. Everyone sang along of course. My absolute favorite song is Pity Party and I was so ecstatic to hear it live. I capture a few good videos on my phone actually and posted them to my Instagram.

Ok so like my phone captured this pretty decently so enjoy #cake #melaniemartinez #hobcleveland

I think her performance was really good, there was only a few issues with the mic like make once or twice where feedback came out and she seemed to be always fixing her ear piece but I think she always does that. I’m not sure. I thought her outfit was so cute! I would wear it myself. Vocally I think she sounded great! She moves around a little awkwardly but Melanie is an awkward person. Her songs aren’t really dance songs either so it’s not going to be like JLo doing an entire dance number. I think it’s part of her charm and her realism.

Before the encore songs there was a random gap in the crowd and I was wondering why no one was filing it. I decided to step up and found out the hard way that it was because someone had puked and of course no one wanted to step in it. I think i stepped in it a little but it didn’t get all over my shoes, didn’t really make my shoes smell and after not being close enough to see Melanie clearly throughout the entirety of the concert I really didn’t care. The smell in general was pretty much masked and I didn’t find it to be a big deal. Everyone else of course was grossed out by it and my friend insisted that when I got into her car I set my shoes on a plastic bag. Which i get but my shoes weren’t covered in vomit. I barely stepped in it actually. She was so worried that she was going to catch some sickness or disease from it and I was like ok you’re overreacting a bit. We eventually stopped at a gas station and I  wiped the soles of my shoes with some soap and water then washed my hands twice, just so she wouldn’t complain or anything.

What I didn’t like was that even with the 2 encore performances of Gingerbread Man and Cake the entire concert was like an hour and a half (not including the break between for set up) and Melanie’s set was only 1 hour. It felt like it was over as soon as it started. I assume this might be due to 1. She doesn’t talk much or interact and 2. she only has one album out and she did play almost the entirety of it. Once she creates another album I’m sure the concerts will be a bit longer. I would love to go see her again when she comes to town with new music and hopefully she might be in a bigger venue (or at least one with seats). After the concert was over I went to check the line for merch but it was all over the place and Hot Topic has a decent selection of her stuff for cheaper. So I just passed on that and instead went home. After standing 5 and a half hours I just wanted to lay down and sleep.

This was my first concert of the summer and the first one I had been to since October of last year. It wasn’t perfect but I enjoyed myself. This was much better than the concert I had later on in the week but more on that later.

Review Dying Light

Published February 20, 2016 by makeuponatightbudget

Hey guys, i”ve been watching another Let’s Play. I’v been hearing a lot about Dying Light especially since the expansion came out last week. I decided to watch the first part of it and see what exactly it was all about. If anyone wonders why I don’t just do the Let’s Plays on my own it’s because I don’t have a PS4, my laptop doesn’t have enough memory and I don’t have money, haha. I don’t mind watching other people play either. I think it’s fun seeing what other people do and what you would do differently. Of course I watched theRadBrad do the Let’s Play. I mentioned before he’s isn’t as annoying with voice over stuff (the main reason that turns me away from let’s Plays). He doesn’t play as well as some others, which can bug some people, I know it bugs me sometimes, especially with this game when he’s close to an airdrop and doesn’t pick it up.

Anyway, Brad was given the game in December of 2014 I believe, the game didn’t come out until January of 2015 so the first 6 or so episodes follow the main storyline until you get to Rais, then he does a couple side missions which are a little weird (Mother’s Day) before he’s allowed to do the full campaign. Obviously with this post I will be talking about things within the game. I won’t really do a full explanation of stuff, just wanted to do some over all reviewing but there will be some spoilers.

So storywise I think it’s fairly interesting. there’s a lot of back and forth stuff with having to do missions for Rais, the people at the tower, Spike, Dr. Zere, etc. The missions themselves don’t seem as fulfilling as the cutscenes which of course let you go more in depth with the characters. The missions just seem like missions, basic “I need to get this or I need you to do this so we don’t die because of these zombies” stuff. So i find that a bit lackluster. My two favorite parts of the storyline was definitely the Demolisher boss battle and Crane cutting off Rais’s hand as then when you have to go and rescue Jade. Those two scenes in particular really had me on the edge of my seat and I was wondering exactly what would happen next. The weird floating school thing with Jade was okay mostly because you can see like the virus taking over your brain but you don’t really know if Crane is passed out and dreaming or really walking into random places and he’s not aware because he’s trying to find Jade. The end battle of course wasn’t as thrilling. I mean in a game full of zombies when 2 humans fight it won’t be as scary or thrilling. Techland tried to make up for this I think by adding in the quick time events to try and keep up the suspense. I think as a player it would be frustrating since you have to button smash but it seemed rather lack luster. Overall I think there were some good plot twists and decent character deaths, this is also the first form of zombie media I’ve seen that actually comes close to a cure. There’s always talk of cure but this ending in particular makes it seem like it’s real.

Gameplay is thankfully more interesting than watching an FPS. I tried watching F.E.A.R. and I basically gave up because watching it is so boring (the storyline is interesting however). It’s got a lot of melee weapons and fewer guns, which I think is cool because if you’re traveling by yourself there wouldn’t be a lot of guns lying around anyway. My favorite melee weapon was the Heavy Rebar (sucks on stamina but kills easily) and Tahir’s Weapon (easier on the stamina and does a lot of decapitations.) There’s also a variety of physical actions like sliding, dropkicks, and stomps that you can acquire with the skill points. The skill points weren’t so bad, they definitely helped in the game and imprved your character. As for the scenery and stuff, I like that it’s open world and every section has great textures. The realism is a little ehh at times but overall I think it’s pretty amazing. The colors are really nice, especially for a crumbling Turkish town. There’s a lot of neutral colors but subtle things that make it pop such as the graffiti, water, and tunnels. The parkour aspect is very huge in this game, hell one of the main characters, Brecken, was a parkour instructor before the outbreak. I think it’s interesting, not my favorite since only a few of the zombies can climb and go after you so most of the action is down below. It’s great for when you’re doing things at night because you DEFINITELY need to avoid them them since about 2 or 3 new zombies only come out at night. The stamina part is an amazing addition but i can tell if I actually played it I would hate the hell out of this feature. It adds to the realism immensely but it sucks big time when you’ve got 3 or 4 zombies around you and your stamina is at zero. Some other amazing additions that are probably really annoying for gameplay is when you come out of the water your screen is all wet and blurs your vision, the blood on your face from when you camoflauge yourself with zombie guts is weird because it’s like you have blood in your eye, and the seizure parts since Crane becomes infected. Sometimes the seizures happen at the worst time and I just yell at the screen like C’MON NOT NOW! The seizure parts add suspense because it takes awhile for Crane to recover and your vision gets all blurry.

So let’s talk zombies. This is the only game or form of media that I think i’ve seen that actually refers to zombies as zombies. Sure they have their former name of Volitiles but there has been several instances where Crane says zombies. It makes me think that maybe there was zombie media and entertainment before the outbreak, you know like in real life. I kind of like that aspect as well. The zombies in this game are really itneresting too. I always like seeing how  each franchise no matter in books, movies, or video games adds their own spin to zombies. Dying Light has their weakness against UV rays, Bombers which are similar to Bloaters in The Last of Us (mostly in the sense that they are large, very mutated, and can damage you with their explosion). The only thing is that as soon as you get close enough they start wanting to explode and in about 3-5 seconds they can cause major damage. The good news is that unlike Bloaters, as soon as they explode (and they do so on their own) they’re dead, so you don’t have to have a big battle with them. Toads are weird because they remind me of like…if stereotypical fedora lords that lived in their mother’s basements got infected. I think it’s their dumb little backpacks, lol. I haven’t gotten far enough to see if there is any explanation provided as to why toads ended up looking like, well, toads. Obviously they all mutate (which is another cool thing about these zombies) but I want to know why.

As for characters, Crane is the same for every video game. 30-ish, white man who has to save the day, blah blah. What I do like is that this takes place in Turkey, and there are Middle Eastern people everywhere. We even have Dr. Zere who may be from a different place (I’m thinking England? He sounds a little british?) but is a person of color. And I like how they got Middle Eastern people to voice Middle Eastern characters. Jade I think has a lot of potential that I haven’t seen yet. Her face I feel is the most realistic out of all of them but I want to know why she wears makeup if it’s the apocalypse. Like, come on, people. Lena I don’t think wears makeup (i haven’t seen that many close ups of her) and she’s still smart and useful (-ish, there’s not that much of her either). Rahim was, well annoying. He played the annoying little brother role well and when he died I was like good. You were fucking stupid, reckless, and thought you could do shit, when the adults told him that he shouldn’t have. I feel old writing that lol. But Rahim was no skin off my nose. Another thing is that I’m not connecting to these characters as much as I connect to the others in zombie games(ellie in TLOU, Michone in TWD, Clem in TWD game, etc). I think Jade seems to be the most interesting and I think that’s because she’s a kick boxer so I know she’s badass. I just haven’t seen it yet. I was pretty upset when she was bitten and on the verge of death. I think that was like the only time that i felt emotion towards a character in this game. I think Crane over all learned from his mistakes and was trying to do the right thing but I can’t help but to think that most of this stuff was his fault. Eventually towards the end of the game I started liking him more and more, especially with the little quips he had towards Rais. Overall i don’t think he was a bad character just not as dynamic.

So pros: day and night cycle, with night time adding increased difficulty and new zombies that only appear at night, different weapon options that aren’t just guns (but why are there elemental throwing stars?), you don’t have to fight all the zombies and they’re more like obstacles but when they pursue you it can be scary, the storyline is more hopeful especially with the cure and Antizin being introduced, gore factor in nice.

Cons: Missions are pretty straight forward, there’s more traveling than doing things, the faces are animated a bit weird and the lip movement/talking animation doesn’t looks as real as it could be. There are some glitches with the zombies bouncing back and forth, floating body parts and getting stuck in scenery. Missions are kind of boring, traveling takes up too much time, 2 boss battles, not enough battles with the zombies (you mostly avoid them)

The common rating for this game is a 7-8 out of 10 and I would have to agree. It’s not bad but it could be a little bit better. I think it’s got some great parts to it. I’m hoping that with the Dying Light:The Following addition it will be even better and some of these things will be fixed and that we may get to see different characters get involved with the zombies more. It’s on my next thing to watch. I don’t think I would buy it for $60 on Steam though. I would definitely wait for a price drop. The game may have 20 hours (or so) on it but i don’t think it’s worth $60.

Alright guys, hope you enjoyed the review, I’ll be back once I get done watching the expansion! See you soon!

 

 

Monster High Doll: Isi Dawndancer Review

Published January 2, 2016 by makeuponatightbudget

Let me start by saying that for me it’s really difficult to find the new dolls as soon as they come out. I’ve been an avid collector of  Monster High since they came out, I even have an OG Frankie and Ghoulia (whom were my favorite at the time). Of course there are still a ton of dolls I do not have that are on my list to get but Isi came out at a time when I suddenly got obsessed with deer. That’s right, deer. And it started with Fawtine Fallowheart who is part of the frightmare collection of mini centaur like dolls. I fell in love with Fawtine because of her gentle design and she looked the most down to earth compared to the other frightmares. And all the other frightmares look mighty bitchy in their design art 😛 She was just so cute and only $10 so I got her. Then I started painting my small Obitsu doll into a deer design. And then I saw Isi.

DSCN0758

I loved her as soon as I saw her (I love Batsy Claro too and she’s next on my list). This is Monster High’s second Mexican doll, Skelita being the first and representing Day of the Dead, and Isi is “Boo Hexican”, which based on her design, I would assume would be like a Native Aztec spirit. I was able to find her on Amazon, i think through the official Mattel since she was still only $20. I told my mom about her and it was like an early Christmas gift. I normally have to tell my mom and aunt which dolls I don’t have so they don’t buy me dolls I already have. It’s a hassle but this is what I go though, haha.

Anyway, Isi I literally everything. I love her so much. Her face design is of course different from the other dolls because she has the deer facial features. Her nose is the cutest and her eyes are super big. The lines around the outside of her irises are a little uneven but you cant really tell unless you look real close, factory errors happen all the time. She also doesn’t have antlers, which I’m assuming is because she’s a female deer. The antlers however are represented in her headband. I would eventually like to see a doll with  antlers (a normal doll, because Fawntine has Antlers).

DSCN0759.JPG

Her outfit is a one piece jumpsuit, a overlaying poncho, calf high heels, and a yellow beaded necklace. Her purse is a large circle bag with a dreamcatcher design.

DSCN0771

I love the jumpsuit design which is a halter top one piece. It’s a combination of aztec print with a little monster high skull design. That’s my favorite part of the design. The poncho seems to be more of a traditional Aztec design (that I know of) and it stands out because of her blue hair, bag, and heels. Her hair is so soft, btw!!

Love the little Monster High Skull!

DSCN0764

Yes, her feet are hooves

I can’t tell you how much I love this doll. She I think is hands down one of my favorites, maybe even more so than Abbey, Rochelle, and Robecca. I can’t wait to see how Isi is in the movie (hopefully they’ll make a movie, I think they have one already though). Abbey really spoke to me after I watched a few of the Monster High episodes on Youtube so I’m hoping Isi is the same.

Until Dawn Review

Published December 15, 2015 by makeuponatightbudget

I’ve been watching theRadBrad play Until Dawn. All my opinions are based on the actions he took and how his story played out. Obviously there are some variations because there are multiple endings and things that can happen. Also, of course there are spoilers ahead because I did watch the entire play through, so I will be discussing the ending Brad got.

Basically the story is about a group of college age friends that go to a cabin the woods and proceed to have every horror movie trope ever created bestowed upon them. Now graphics wise, I think the game is completely beautiful. The game play is good too. There’s constant reminders of the controls (Which i think is great) and quick time events that help build the suspense. There are a few jump scares but for the most part watching it all wasn’t that scary. It read mostly like a suspenseful thriller. Story wise, I’m not pleased at all. There were good bits and pieces here and there but when we get around Chapter 8 (total of 10 chapters) we see things come together that do make sense but it throws off other parts.

What I mean is that up until Chapter 8, Josh’s actions make no fucking sense. Okay, his motive’s make sense, yes. But how it ties into everything else…well it doesn’t. Josh’s actions basically read off as shit pulled from the Saw franchise. He captures his friends (under the disguise of a mask) and ties them up and makes them pretend to choose who will die and survive. Chris gets the first task. Ashley and Josh are strapped to these upright tables and a saw blade is coming towards them, aimed for the stomach. Chris is made to choose who will die by changing the saw blade’s direction. Brad chooses to kill Josh which we later find out he didn’t die and used a body dummy to have the blade go through. There is another situation where Chris is made to choose between him and Ashley, who should live or die. Around this part is where we find out that the “killer” (he never actually killed anyone up until this point) is Josh, “playing a trick” on his friends, scaring them to make them feel how his sister Hannah felt when they played the trick on her. Now I won’t go through every story piece as I want to give an overall summary and I hope my readers will watch and/or play the game.

The whole thing with Josh pretending to be a killer and pranking his friends to prove his point and reach his psychotic breakthrough was good, predictable but good. What makes me upset if that his stuff doesn’t fit into the overall picture. It just doesn’t!

Later one we learn about the curse of the Wendigo, how the miners were killed and how Hannah became one, Josh’s stupid little Saw traps make no sense. I honestly think Mike could’ve been the catalyst once he and Jessica were at the separate lodge and the Wendigo took her. I think he could’ve still gone to the sanitarium and did all his exploring and effected the characters so they would still find out about the Wendigo’s. This is the part that pisses me off. It really has no impact on the overall story especially since from the beginning we have the notions of the Indian tribes, the totem, and butterfly effect, as well as the story of the Wendigo. All the folklore and Native Indian aspects could’ve taken the story from point blank, especially since the prank still takes place and Hannah dies (and therefore becomes a Wendigo because she ate her sisters corpse).

I think the game would have still be amazing without Josh’s craziness and wanna be Jigsaw traps. He doesn’t really kill anyone (or for that matter, I don’t think he wanted anyone to die) and he’s just…unstable. I think the creators should have picked one story or the other, either Josh makes everyone do Jigsaw traps and keeps his insanity (extremely cliche and overdone) or they keep the Wendigo story, which I think would be the better choice. Josh’s actions driving the first half of the game could have been easily been replaced by the Wendigo terrorizing and going after the characters.

So we basically get a combination of Saw, The Cabin in the Woods, and The Descent. It would’ve been better if we have like one clear set path as to what is happening instead of a combination of things. I think Josh could’ve been a more prominant figure to the plot as Josh instead of as the “killer” and towards the end his insanity could’ve been pushed over the edge and he could try and get his friends to die by the Wendigo”s by saying basically, “it was all your fault my sisters died.”

Basically the story would’ve been perfectly fine without the dumb Saw traps and setting up Josh that way. Like what if Josh found Hannah had turned into a Wendigo and invited all the friends back to the lodge in order to feed them to Hannah and keep her alive. That would still keep his insanity failing and make the characters run away from a crazy figure. And then of course it would make since for like the friends to distrust him afterwards and you could still get the whole is Josh dead or the new head Wendigo thing. I swear that makes much more sense!

But other than that I think overall the bigger picture and the game play is great. Like I said the graphics, atmosphere, and locations are very nicely done. I especially like how the girls look. The lips are what always got me. I have no idea why but I think each pair of female lips had enough color, fullness, and shine that it made them look extremely realistic. Ashley’s facial design was my favorite honestly. Overall I would like to play the game for myself to make my own decisions but seeing the gameplay that Brad has done and the overall story and such, I’d give it an 8/10. I take points off for the random Josh story that I think could be edited out and I heard Brad say that some of the controls are inverted, as in Up on the D pad would go down, etc (which is the dumbest game mechanic in history I think). I think it’s cool to play things out like a horror movie too!

I’m off to watch Heavy Rain soon since people have said it is similar to this game. Hopefully there’s not a character’s actions that pisses me off as much as Josh 😛

*fun fact: My fave line in the game is “Jesus Hot Sauce Christmas Cake.”

MonstroDesigns-An Etsy Review

Published November 15, 2015 by makeuponatightbudget

My first BJD clothes review! I’ve been on a horrible shopping spree for my doll. I only say horrible because BJD clothes aren’t cheap. I have tried sewing my own clothes and nothing ever turns out right. I can only make my own accessories. But anyway one of the shops I brought some clothes from was MonstroDesigns on Etsy. MonstroDesigns is run by Kay Davis. She makes a ton of wigs, clothes, and accessories for a variety of size dolls including Monster High, MSD/MNF, SD, and Blythe.

I kind of have a hard time finding clothes for Natty since she’s MSD size. This happens mostly on Etsy since a lot of Etsy designers have MNF’s. But luckily all the clothes still fit Natty! and she looks super cute in them.

For this purchase I got a grey slouch beanie, purple bat print skater skirt (which might be out of stock or discontinued as I do not see it on the shop pages), white pencil skirt, white cross print leggings, and the black graveyard print leggings.

AS far as shipping time goes, usually BJD designers take about 1-2 weeks to actually make the clothes, most of them are in a “pre-order status” and state it on the listing. Mine however took around 4 weeks to get shipped and delivered. Kay does live in the U.S (Calirfornia) so it really shouldn’t have taken that long. While I wasn’t happy with the sipping time it wasn’t Kay’s fault at all. She was having some terrible allergy issues and her eyes were swollen shut. She even had to send out mass messages to her customers about it. So it was something that couldn’t be helped.

Nonetheless when my items arrived I was mostly happy. The quality of the sewing is great; all items are machine sewed. The leggings stretch really well. The skirt sits nicely at Natty’s waist and is like a basic circle skirt. I like to pair it with a black petticoat underneath to really fill it out. I think it makes the shape look better as well as keeps with Natty’s style. The beanie has a bit of stretch and flexibility, enough to get it over the head and have it stay in place over a wig. The white pencil skirt was EXTREMELY seethrough. I had to put white underwear on underneath to make it a bit opaque and even then i was a struggle to try and get the underwear smooth underneath the skirt.

The cross leggings were a bit of disappointment as  the cross pattern stretched too much and began to crack.

This didn’t happen at all with the graveyard pattern and I asusme they were put onto the fabric in the same was. The Beanie also looks great with her new wig.

She a glamour gurl #bjd #abjd #balljointeddoll #mystickids #natalia

A post shared by Spooky (@spookyboogie13) on

Here is the outfit I created using the bat print skirt, graveyard leggings, and beanie from kay as well as a halter top and cameo choker I made myself. The boots are from ebay.

Overall i would give my order a 4/5, taking down points for the two white items. I would  order from Kay again and I’ve in fact put in an order for 2 suspender skirts because she had the cutest fabric available. Perhaps I just wont order things that require too much stretching since the other items were fine. Maybe I also wont order white fabrics either. I still think that overall it was a good purchase.

Natty’s style is a mix of sweet/goth lolita and pastel goth. It switches and smushes together from time to time depending on what I find online. Shopping for your doll is hard! I’ve barely gotten clothes for myself ever since I got her!

True Blood S1E1

Published July 18, 2015 by makeuponatightbudget

Don’t ask me what possessed me to watch this show. Ok, I’ll tell you what possessed me. I watched Magic Mike XXL yesterday and Joe Mangianello (?) is in it. In later seasons of True Blood he plays Alcide, a werewolf (drools for days) and I wanted to see him. Now i’ve seen a few episodes of TB here an there, I know the story line for the most part and I HATE SOOKIE AND BILL. God they’re so gross and the absolute worse. And now I’m putting myself through 7 seasons of torture for this. Good Job self. Good job. At least Eric Northman is there….I love him. Let’s see how long it takes before this show annoys the hell out of me.

Honestly this show is Twilight for adults. Vampires want to be part of mainstream society. That’s not how vampires work.

The bad thing about this show is that they have vampire rednecks. Wonderful. As if this show wasn’t horrible enough. I’ll complain about this entire show while watching it, i will promise you that.

Oh boy, now we get to see Sookie at her shitty waitressing job! But more importantly i’m here for my boo, LaFeyette. Yes hunty. I didn’t know that she could read minds, well hear people’s thoughts. That must suck. I wouldn’t want to hear anyones thoughts. Oh god, could you imagine the disgusting thoughts some creeper would have about you, and you would hear it?! That would be horrible:( I almost feel bad for Sookie, if I really liked I would definitely feel bad but I don’t. Is that really how Tara talks?? Like I hope she’s joking at least a little bit. Damn.

That was literally the weirdest way to quit a job. I mean i understand going off on people but that was just weird. At least tara dies eventually! Oh well, I was right. Sookie does get to hear what creeps think of her. Now I kind of feel bad. I hope she punches him in the face. I would.

Yasss LaFeyette is here. I can’t wait till I get to the part with him and his boyfriend. I forgot what the hell his name was. it started with an R i think. Also, I know spoilers about this show everywhich way I’m just sitting down to finally watch it. Starts new show to avoid problems and work. God I love Lafeyette. He’s literally me I swear.

Jason is such a pretty little thing, jeez. Big and dumb ❤

Oh god Bill looks like a hobo. Why the hell is she attracted to him. Why are all mainstream vampires ugly??? Edward was ugly. Bill’s ugly. Shit. Can’t we get some good looking vampires around here? Came out of the Coffin?? Jesus Mary and Joseph. What kind of…

Vampire Rights Amendment. I’m dead. This is just too much. My god. Sookie and Bill’s flirting is literally so awkward and gross. That Vampire sex is weird what the hell?! He needs Jesus! He’s fucking possessed. Damn. That’s some creepy shit, But Sookie’s just yelling VAMPIRE all over the damn restuarant like she’s being so damn loud. Try to be inconscpicuous when you’re trying to save someone please. Her running is so horrible too. These sex scenes are really grossing me out…I know that it’s like half the show but it’s just really weird.

I just want to know how the hell they got Bill down long enough to take his blood. Was he weak or something? Oh silver chains I see. Aww Sam knew what was up and he came to check on Sookie in his cute widdle puppy form of course. Sam’s so precious. Ok I kind of like how Sookie’s like HEY SPEAK TO ME LIKE A DAMN LADY. At least she stands up for herself and isn’t completely useless. But she still sounds so stupid. her acting is the worse -__-

Bill. That is a stupid name for a vampire:P That part always gets me. Why are Jason’s shirts so tight. I mean…thats not a problem but he’s so tight dear god. What a big dumb stupid boy. I love him. Whoo she turned him down real smooth!! 5 points for her. That was the best. I don’t even remember Sookie having a grandma. Does she like die this episode? Huh…

Grandma looks like she dying to set Sookie up on a date. Alright now somethings happening. I bet those rednecks are coming back for her or something. They’ll probably kill Grandma. Nope Bill’s just being a creep….ok. Is she not going to question how his fucking weird self just found her house??? Like that’s creepy and stalkerish. Ohhhh she’s having a dream. Thank god. Who the fuck is Maudette Pickins? What kind of name is Maudette? I bet that’s the girl that Jason was having sex with last night. There was a camera there so I bet that vampire guy saw it all. The bald headed vampire one in her weird porno, not Bill. Good jb being real Smooth Jason, now Sookie knows you were there with the fangbanger. That’s such a stupid name. Remember when Hot Topic sold shirts that said that shit?

Uh-oh the police showed up at Jason’s construction job. I mean i’m pretty sure he didn’t do it but like they might suspect him. Yasssss Renee. God now this is an accent I can get behind. But Jason is beign a dumbass. He doesn’t know how the hell to lie to police. Good job you idiot.

Grandma is so cute. She’s like so excited to learn about the war, omg. What a little old lady. LaFeyette gives me life. I love him so much. He’s always teasing guys at the restaurant. Ohh now Sookie found out that Jason was arrested. Well now Bill’s back and actually being creepy in real time. No dreams this time around. Ugh all this romantic music and the dumb look she’s giving Bill makes me want to vomit. it’s all like oh wow, look at this creepy ugly vampire, she’s so hot and amazing. Stop it. It’s the same trope over and over again. At least Bill knew from the very beginning that Sookie was different. What is she a fairy or something? I think it’s a fairy. I can’t really remember. He just asked her out in the weirdest old fashion way possible, omg. It was really weird how everyone was staring at her and Bill like damn mind your own business! Did she really just start crying because Sam yelled at her? I thought she was a little better than that>.< Well now she stands up for herself?! Make up your mind Sookie! You cried for like .25 seconds and then turned to yell at them. I don’t understand. Well i think the Rattrays’ found her. It was kind of nice seeing her get beat up:P
