I’m curious as to what genre you’d categorize the band fun. in. They call themselves “alternative rock” but I don’t know if I agree with that statement, each song varies though. So far, I’ve only hear their songs off of Some Nights, but I know they’ve been around for awhile, We Are Young being their breakout song. They were known by a different name before, then they broke up, and formed fun.with some different people. Let me know what you think!
Ed Sheeran - Grade 8
Some Nights -fun.
Amazing cover of Somebody That I Used to Know by fun. & Paramore’s Hayley Williams!
I was hesitant to read Fifty Shades of Grey in the first place because of it’s sexual content. Let’s get something clear; I’mnotreligious in any way, shape, or form. I have nothing against sex, sex before marriage, etc. I’m just immature. I don’t mind sex but I knew about the BDSM, etc. Anyway, I was in Barnes & Noble last week & decided to read it whilst waiting for my aunt to get tired of Macy’s (I finished the book in two hours in Barnes & Noble, didn’t have to endure the awkwardness of buying it).
It was actually really good… the story, at least. The grammar, the punctuation, the spelling… that was dreadful. E.L. James obviously has no money or self dignity otherwise she would’ve hired an editor to fix her mistakes! Come on, two conversations inoneparagraph? Yeah, that happened, on a few different counts. That’s ridiculous, I’ve been writing stories since I was six & I’ve never made that careless mistake.
Secondly, she spelled Nelly Furtado’s name wrong, which pisses me off. I know in most cases it will say it’s wrong, & instinctively change it to “Nellie”, but her name is NELLY FURTADO. I know this because she’s Canadian bred, & I love my Canadian artists. If you’re using an artist in your poorly written novel, at least do her the decency of spelling her name correct.
Anastasia is basically as annoying as Bella Swan, equally as boring too. She repeats the same phrases often, such as “Holy shit!”, “Holy cow!” “My inner goddess…” etc. It’s very boring after awhile. I know I said I liked this book, but not because of the writing or Anastasia’s point of view.
Why I liked it? All of them? I thought Christian Grey was a very intriguing character. He was very broken, & very, very fucked up. I can relate to him in several ways (not the whole BDSM thing… no…)and I sympathized for him immensely.
I don’t like Twilight - at all, which was another reason why I was hesitant to read it. If you really analyze it, than yes, you can distinctly tell that it was obviously based off of Twilight. But there’s nothing about vampires, nothing of that supernatural nature. Obviously, Ana’s friend Jose is supposed to be Jacob, & no shit sherlock, Christian is supposed to be Edward. His father, Carrick, even has a weird ass name like Carlisle. Grace is fairly normal.
This book is not for everybody, & I have rarely recommended it to my friends. I feel uncomfortable doing so, considering half of my friends are irked that I even read it. My friends, most of them, are much more conservative - except for my best friend, of course.
Anyway, I want to discuss some things.
Honestly, I could go on all day about how fucked up Anastasia is. But for whatever reason, I still found these books extremely intriguing. Fifty Shades of Grey was my least favourite, to be honest. I enjoyed Fifty Shades Darker & Fifty Shades Freed because it wasn’t all love & lust, there was some “action” & crazy bitches added into the mix. I think that Ana & Christian are creepily intimate though, & no matter how much I love my husband, I would never, ever let him shave my pubes. That’s incredibly awkward. That’s a no-go.
I like Christian when he’s not stressing out about every single god damned thing. Anastasia is right when she points out he’ll have a heart attack before he’s forty. People that lost in their work? That young? Are bound to have a heart attack in their thirties, whether it’s mid thirties or late thirties. Doesn’t really matter.
Also, for the millionth time, Anastasia is really fucking stupid. She never listens to Christian. I pointed out that I wouldn’t take his shit, but when it comes to the logical things like not e-mailing personal things from work when youknowthey’re being monitored, or leaving the room when there’s a psycho with a gun in your apartment… those types of things, piss me off. Illogical people piss me off, clearly.
E.L. James is no stellar author, but her storyline proves to be intriguing to me. But, I don’t think she deserves all this hype when her story was inspired by Twilight & a kinky fucking mind. If FanFiction’s were meant to be published work, we’d all be rich by now. I’m sure every Twilight author is rearranging names & characteristics at this point & finding a retarded publisher. I’m still in awe that someone would have the guts to publish such a poorly written & edited book, but oh well. There’s nothing that can be done at this point.
