2000 views!/ Key Photo Splurge #1

A few days ago my blog received its 2000th visit, woo! Thanks to all my friends and subscribers for commenting and being awesome in general – but more importantly, thanks to all my lurkers, who supply me with the views despite not commenting and hurting my feelings in the process. I still love you guys, in a way. Just kidding. Sort of.

Seriously though, thank you to everyone who visits this blog. (: I don’t have a niche nor do I have many connections at this point, so it surprises me that I have any viewers at all. Undoubtedly I would continue to blog even if my view count decreased, but it motivates me to do so more often when I know people are reading what I have to write. Or if you’re just looking for pictures of Key, that’s cool too.

Speaking of Key, I have a headache from taking a four-hour exam so I’ve decided that instead of writing something intellectually profound, I’ll just post a multitude of photos of Key. (insert fangirl scream… now)

Oh baby.

This made me think of Key singing "Friday"... so much good and bad in one thought!

Key in pink is perfect.

Key kissing himself? Now that's narcissism.

The OTP.

It’s Friday! (seriously)

Today has been a great day. I love Fridays, for real. The weather is warm but not hot, cool but not humid… okay, on with what I think of the song. I feel like people will take this post as a joke anyway (somewhat like the song itself).

For people who don’t know what I’m referring to, here is the infamous song that has become a pop sensation seemingly overnight.

Now before I analyze this piece of work, I would like to say that I have nothing against Rebecca Black. In fact, I believe that people on the internet are becoming overly ostentatious and hurtful towards her. It is disrespectful and rather shallow to insult someone online – I bet almost none of the people posting cruel comments about her would dare say those things to her in real life. Though, that’s what the internet does; it makes people confident, and often too confident.

And yes, I did say that I am going to analyze this song. My brain needs a break once in awhile…

Here are some lyrics I personally would be embarrassed to sing (or write):

“Kickin in the front seat, sitting in the back seat, gotta make my mind up, which seat should I take?”

Ouch. This line wouldn’t be that bad if not for:
1) It leads up to the chorus, which has nothing to do with riding in cars or choosing seats. I’m not sure if the chorus has anything to do with anything, really…
2) There are seats available in her friend’s car.
3) Isn’t she waiting for the bus? Hence, her standing at the bus stop?

“Fun, fun, fun, fun…”

This sounds like something you would hear on a Kids’ Channel. Like Nickelodeon. Maybe that’s what her intent was in producing this…

“Yesterday it was Thursday. Today it is Friday… Tomorrow is Saturday. And Sunday comes afterward.”

Thanks, because people who listen to this song obviously don’t know the days of the week and the order they occur in. That was sarcasm. I often ponder the appropriateness of using sarcasm online.

Other artists name days of the week in their songs, namely Fergie/Black Eyed Peas. But they don’t use the bridge for it, nor do they emphasize it so unnecessarily.

“We we we so excited… we we we so excited.”

OH. OW. As a grammar freak, this just pains me. Like a punch to the stomach. Okay, a lot of music doesn’t have proper grammar, that’s understandable. The lack of a to be verb in such a simple clause, however, is too much. This line destroyed the whole song for me.

Before I end this post, I’m going to reiterate that I have absolutely nothing against Rebecca Black. Nothing. I just don’t like this one particular song. I might be going out on a limb here, but I also don’t think she has the worst voice ever. I even thought I heard some talent when I heard her sing the National Anthem. Does this make her the best singer? No. Is “Friday” the worst song ever produced? Again, most likely not. It’s just the worst to ever receive this much publicity.
