You Better WERK!

If you’ve been hiding under the pride rock and hanging out with hyenas, you might miss out on the amazingness of RuPaul’s Drag Race. On the air since 2009, the show displayed charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent (C.U.N.T, in short) of various drag queens and serve you with entertaintment realness. Fashion, theatrical, drama, comedy, shade, you get it all.

I’ve been listening to the singles served for the final episodes from each season, because they are giving me the spirit to werk this life out (most probably while doing the dishes). And I don’t see the reason why y’all are not listening to ’em. So I compiled the songs in one playlist. You’re welcome.

The Book Thief – #SHOOKETH

Recently I just finished reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. A book about a Jewish girl in Nazi Germany.

On the first few pages, I thought the book was hella heavy. Not the book itself (obvi) but the setting. It was set on Nazi Germany, so inherently it contained the whole shebang about Hitler, the Jewish genocide, unfortunate inability to live the life you want, all that.

Even just writing about it makes me did an exhale. Let’s continue.

We followed the life of Liesel Meminger, a girl in her early teenage life, given up by her mother to be taken into foster care of the Hubermann. Now, the Hubermann was not really a well-off family, but they are white, German, and adhered to Nazi Germany. Little did we know that the Hubermann was a family of honour first, and country second. They had their allegiance mostly tied to their promise made in the past, which made things very dynamic in the household.

To cut the story short: a poor girl came in, Mama Hubermann was a tiger mum that yapped at everything she cared about, Papa Hubermann was a man of honour (there goes that word again), Rudy Steiner was a bae through and through, and the long lost Jew Max Vandenburg was a true fistfighter. Most died, two survived, well into old age and a place far away but near to the author. Oh, and Death narrated the whole thing, so you knew it’s something worth listening to.

I love the different angle the book takes. A narration by Death? Oh come on. Its perspective on life and human is priceless and at times glumly hilarious. Once you passed two-third of the book, it became harder and harder to put down. You know those books that follow through the pattern of prologue-drama-epilogue (please don’t clock me)? Well this one followed the prologue-whatthehell-omg-drama-DRAMA-HOLYCRAP pattern. Its highly influential social and political background served as great setting for the story to unfold, and eventhough I was pretty turned off about it at first, in the end it is the thing that kept me going.

Rating: 4.5/5. Still thinking the build was quite slow. Other than that, a masterpiece. #SHOOKETH

What’s the T?

Well hello interweb. How you doin?

Image result for fanboy

No, I’m not a fan of Fanboy cartoon show or whatever, I find it to be representative is all lol. If you’re a fan, tho, kudos to you.

So┬áhere I am,┬ástarting Fanboy Express as an outlet to pour out my obsession about certain stuffs. Mostly it will be about the books I read, the tunes I’m listening to, and most likely some videos I’m obsessed about on YouTube. Other kinds of shenanigans could be added in the near future, so I hope you’re staying around long enough for that.

I believe that we all should be a fan of something. So tell me, what are you obsessed about today?
