THIS SHOW IS SO GREAT

Taking a break

I’m sorry guys. I love you all, and I love the page, but between work and college right now, I am struggling to keep my GPA up. I know that to a lot of you that doesn’t matter, but school comes first to me.

I will betaking a couple more days off, but next week, the fic will continue I just need some time to catch up on my school work. Please understand and dont be upset with me, I am a real person, and I do have real issues and problems in my life.

I love you all, and am so so so greatful for the support and love you show me. Thank you so much.

Omg I’m not ;A; !! But I’m going back again and again anyways so I should probably have that as my next stop! I’m just going around Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Fukui (they have a dinosaur museum. DINOSAUR MUSEUM. OMG i’m going to make my Jurassic Park dream come true) because I’m touring my older sis. It’s her first time so I’m showing her great places and she’s so excited and so am I!! \(*u*)/

The worst thing about The Get Down not getting the hype it deserved is that…you’d think that the show is boring, cheesy and just average or bad with how much it gets unnoticed but it’s so great? Like really really great. The storylines are developed, there are no scenes that last longer than necessary, it goes fast but also it’s not messy or all over the place and the feeling you get after just one episode is just so great…you feel satisfied I don’t know? you get to like the characters and you root for them. You want them to succeed so much it’s crazy! the show does great with involving you in their lives BUT mostly it’s about something we’ve never seen before! Of course black/brown teenagers  doing music is not new but the way they did it… light, funny, happy with still some hints of the dark things that happened back then in the Bronx it’s just sooo well done and original ! All the characters are unique and bring something and of course there are things that could have been done better or differently but it’s just such a great show really.

I personally was not even that much into it before watching it… I thought it was going to be one of those hip-hop dance street thing but it’s just SO MUCH MORE you can see how much effort people put in the show from the writing to the excellent songs etc etc …and to think that it just went over people’s head like that with barely any hype is so disappointing. Maybe it’s because im  black but I kind of feel proud that a show about black/brown youth was so well done without the clichés taking too much place (violence, drugs, death, sexism) but rather with depth like they would do with shows that get nominations and excellent critics and hype. After finishing the 6 episodes I really did feel proud that we could add this as some part of our cinema…so much investment.. Great actors.. Great storylines and great music..This was something that was going to please so many people I thought …and yet!

I used to partly agree when people said that we don’t get the trust/money from big producers and companies to do movies/shows that are not stereotypical  and therefore we will always just get movies about drugs, hip-hop and everything from black culture that easily entertain non-black people. But this is it! This show had poetry, love, hope, dreams and teenagers coming of age everything that people usually love! And yet it still got bad critics and not a lot of coverage! It’s like we can’t win!

Does everything have to be about our suffering for people to pretend that they like it? Do we always have to make movies about slavery or drugs to get good critics???  I just hope that it won’t be like that for every movie/show portraying black/brown people doing things that are not what we’re used seeing in cinema (having crushes, dreams, friends, goals, mentors….) Anyway, if you haven’t seen it already go watch it!

Let’s talk about Dustin.

They could’ve easily made him the stereotypical “chubby friend” who just loves food, says dumb things for comedic effect, and is one who gets picked on by the rest of his friends.  This trope is so common in films about groups of young friends, guys or girls, mostly young and high school aged.  But they didn’t do that.

This kid is smart.  He has an imagination.  He’s open to all possibilities.  He’s observant - he’s the one who noticed the compasses.  

Yeah he brought food for their excursion, but not because he’s obsessed with it or he brought it all for himself.  He was being logical.  If they were gone for a while or doing anything strenuous, yeah they’d need energy.  Candy, chips, fruit, and trail mix.  

The only thing he gets made fun of for is his lack of front teeth, and it’s only by the two bullies at school.  His friends aren’t “pity friends”.  

tl;dr Dustin is the most beautiful little cinnamon roll

It’s a great time to be alive.
