Yay or Nay? The Shockers, Stunners, and Suckers of 2014 (Part 4)

1/6/2015 8:25:23 AM

I managed to write the first two parts of this series previously known as the Yay or Nay? The Shockers of 2014. But again, since almost every single news item (if not all) brought uop our level of consciousness, I decide to rename the entire thing as the Shoclers, Stunner and Suckers of 2014. Stun and Shock may be synonymous to each other but I really meant ‘shock’ in general and ‘stun’ on the positive limelight here.

We were stunned by the outcome of all the things which are considered positive in our eyes simply beacuse it brought nothing but good vibes and uplifted out spirits, at least, for a while.

But on the flipside, there are some controversial issues which should have not been brought to circulation in the first place. But still, we ended up wasting our time, effort to think, kinetic energy and even saliva simply because we are bored.

Anyway, here are the continuation of the other shockers, stunners and suckers of the the year that was... yes, 2014!

Switching Gears | 1/2/2015 4:03:38 PM

CM Punk, or known as Philip Jack Brooks, who claimed he got his termination papers in the WWE on his wedding day with wrestler AJ Lee, signed up for a multi-fight deal with the MMA firm UFC.

The move triggered mixed reactions from both pro wrestling and the mixed martial arts aficionados.

Say, is CM Punk ready for this? I think so, considering him making decisions in his right frame of mind. Sure, wrestling may be dangerous as shit despite criticisms on their storylines, but MMA was even a tougher one; considering this: the MMA has been the venue for much intense and skillful training;and at the same time, the sport which gave the fans more kind of entertainment. Admit it, folks: the likes of UFC are where blood and pain was the name of the game.

Well, all I can say is… good luck on that endeavor.

Struggling Global Hit? | 1/2/2015 4:15:12 PM

Let’s move on to the music world for a while. Since, Meghan Trainor, Arianne Grande, the skyrocketing sale of Taylor Swift’s “1989,” and the emergence of EDM has been the notable names for 2014, it seemed this news got a hold in my hand.

Bailando, the top Latin Pop song for this year, has not been doing well despite its status as the “Global Number One” song. Hey, I wonder: how on earth did they earned such distinction if it did not topped the charts on the world’s certain areas?

Yes, the proclaimed “Global No. 1” did not work well in several areas, with more specific, on one of the world’s top-music country like the United Kingdom. In an Independent article published last summer, Enrique Iglesias’ sixth single off the album Sex and Love stayed on their charts for only a week, and the only spot they occupied during that stretch? 75th.

Wow. Well, it happens. Let‘s face it. I have yet to know the music yearend countdown in the Philippines. But let me guess: Iglesias’ work did not make enough to get recognition here.

Self-Proclaimed “Blockbuster” | 1/2/2015 4:26:57 PM

Perhaps we’re already used to Kris Aquino and her shots-firing mouth, from her past relationships to scrutinizing other’s lovelife.

But claiming her son’s movie topped Spiderman’s previous installment in terms of box office sales?

Come on!

Even if it claims to be a blockbuster hit, and even if I have seen neither My Little Bossings nor The Amazing SpiderMan, I can only tell few words: making such comparison is a nothing but BULLSHIT.

You can’t compare a crappy commercialized comedy flick to an installment of a popular comic series-derived movie. There is huge difference right there in the first place.

And that statement is just fucking silly.

Animalistic? | 1/2/2015 4:32:19 PM

The fashion show that rocked Mall of Asia Arena also triggered wildfire feedbacks concerning its “bare” side.

Remember that one catwalk pose with popular actor Coco Martin accompanied by a lady but posed like a pet dog?

Nah, racist or (err) animalistic as it seems, huh?

But…come on. Should we really give a shit like those conservative hypocrites?

We should not be, actually.

Kitty’s Revelations | 1/2/2015 4:40:36 PM

A shocking revelation to the fans of that popular Sanrio character: Hello Kitty is not a cat.

What a silly “fact” (with no intentions to copy Tyson Kidd’s gimmick).

In fact, Hello Kitty is a third-grader girl who has a boyfriend named Daniel.

Wow, talk about mingling at the younger age, huh? Silly indeed. It’s like saying that Barney’s a young gay guy and not a dinosaur, and Mickey Mouse is a high-pitched guy, and all those other cartoon characters we used to watch and fantasize during our childhood days.
