Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 9, Episode 1 Power Ranking! Oh My Gaga!

I think it would be fun to create a power ranking each week to see if we can predict who would make it to the final 3. Most episodes, I will base the power ranking on how they perform in Mini Challenge(25), Maxi challenge (25), runway looks (25), and of course…personal judgement lol (25). But since episode 1 is a little different, this week’s power ranking is Continue reading “Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 9, Episode 1 Power Ranking! Oh My Gaga!”

Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 9 Power Ranking Based on the Meet-the-Queen Videos

Honestly, there is nothing that got me more excited than watching Rupaul’s Drag Race! I’ve been living for the show since I watched my first season, which was the fourth season. *go back to party city where you belong!!* As sad as it sounds, the show usually becomes one of the highlights of my year, especially with me being in such a carceral state from working at home.

Honestly, truly, waiting for another month before season 9 air is going to be like waiting Miss Fame to get the “how’s your head” question, I just can’t. As of right now my thirst for the show has only been eased by the cast announcement and it’s not enough!

So, I know that you can never judge the contestant from the “meet the queens” clips, but so far I’ve never got it wrong regarding who’s gonna go far and who’s just gonna be a filler queen. So, here is my very first impression which is also my power ranking based on the MTQ videos:

Top: Aja, Charlie Hides, Valentina, Shea Coulee, Sasha Velour, Trinity Tylor. Bottom: Jaymes Mansfield, Farrah Moan, Kimora Blac, Alexis Michelle, Eureka, Nina Bo’nina Brown, Peppermint.

#1: AJA

She kewl, but the thing is she’s very Naomi Smalls 2.0, only funnier, which is great because the only reason Naomi didn’t win was because she didn’t nail the comedy version of the competition, IMO.

#2: Valentina

OMG. Real housewife of Latina extravaganza realness. Once again, I love my fishy queens, thus she’s definitely in my top 3 even though she keeps saying luxuriate and luxury like it’s a verb. I also love how she pronounce her name “BAHLENTHINA”

#3 Farrah Moan

OMG, FISH! Can’t lie that, I love my queens more on the Fishy side and Farrah is GORGEOUS! If Courtney Act and Derrick Berry have a love child, it would be Farrah. I just hope that she doesn’t rely on her body that much because right now she comes across as a little void in personality.

#4 Nina Bo’Nina Brown

Is that acid Betty? Why she sound like Bob tho?? LOL. She’s funny, and she can definitely paint. And I love me some Georgian Queens. She good.

#5 Charlie Hides

She’s the oldest contestant ever?? I saw it somewhere that she’s over 50 and I was like, say what now?? Cuz there’s no way she’s that, um, mature. She looks good! Plus, I love her bicoastal accent tho it’s probably as fake as Max’s. Hopefully she’s more of a Chad Michaels than tempest dujour.

#6 Alexis Michelle

I love me some NY queens. But I don’t know, they just had three really amazing NY queens last season, and Alexis seems a little demure compared to them. Her drags screams southern pageant to me which is not a bad thing, just doesn’t match with her being a NY girl. Something tells me that she’s not gonna last that long, but I really like her because she seems very funny.

#7 Shae Coulee

I live for a bautiful dark chocolate glamazonia African Princess. Right now i can only say that, not sure if she’s a comedy queen or a fashion queen.

#8 Kimora Blac

wow….shady, shady, shady. Not the funny kind of shady though, the evil queen mother type of shade. What can I say though, her drag is fish and I’m liking it. But she seems really annoying thooo…ugh.

#9 Jaymes Mansfield

OMG what’s that sound?? Is that Mimi Imfurst after eating Josly Fox? Seems like she will be one of the shady ones, and I’m all for that LOL!

#10 Eureka

JAIDYNN DION FIERCE! I know we’re all rooting for a big girl to snatch the crown, but I don’t think it’s gonna be her tho.

#11 Sasha Velour

Let’s face it, her look is very Ongina-ish. I don’t know about this one. Seems like a filler to me because there are others who have bigger personality.

#12 Trinity Tylor

Oh lawd, I don’t know about this one. She looks very Kandy Ho meets Venus D-lite. Messy. I’ll just leave it at that.

#13 Peppermint

hmmm…now I heard that “meet the queens” attires are usually provided by the show, but if what she’s wearing is any indication of her real drag style, imma say she will go home in the first two episode.

I can already tell that this is going to be a great season, especially with LADY GAGA AS A GUEST JUDGE?? they’re certainly not on a budget this year :9

Can’t wait to see the premier on the 1st of March!

Reviu Riverdale: Komik Purba Yang Diadaptasi Menjadi Series Thriller Remaja.

Akhir-akhir ini banyak banget TV series baru Amerika yang ber-genre Horor atau Thriller. Sebagai seseorang yang memang hobi nonton genre-genre tersebut, series baru yang judulnya Riverdale ini pastinya jadi sesuatu yang aku tunggu-tunggu di 2017.

Riverdale sendiri adalah sebuah adaptasi dari komik Amrik yang berjudul Archie. Karena jarang baca komik, aku nggak banyak tahu tentang komik yang satu ini kecuali memang komik ini popular banget di Amrik, udah ada sejak tahun 50an, buk!

Karena series ini highly advertised, sebelum tayang pun Continue reading “Reviu Riverdale: Komik Purba Yang Diadaptasi Menjadi Series Thriller Remaja.”

Riverdale Review: Archie Comics Gets Darker.

Josie, Jughead, Betty, Archie, Veronica, Kevin, Cheryl, Reggie

I couldn’t help but notice that lately there are so many new horror/thriller series out there in the US, and as an aficionado of those genre, I am psyched! Now with most of my favorite thriller series being on a hiatus or a break, the premier of Riverdale this January definitely quench my thirst.

Riverdale is a teen thriller series that is based on the long-running comicbook called Archie. Now, as a non-American and a non-comic reader, I’m not that familiar with Archie, though I do know that it is one of the oldest comic books in America and many people love it.

I’ve read the first volume of the comic online and turns out it was a pretty light read although the series itself has been revamped into somewhat a darker and more broody version of it. I think of it as Gossip Girl meets Teen Wolf meets Pretty Little Liars, which couldn’t be more awesome!

Characters

Now, the characters! Besides being filled with, like, SUPER HOT casts, it just couldn’t get more classic American than this. There’s Archie the All-American Football Jock, Betty the sweet girl Next Door, Jughead the emo nerd, and also Veronica the Type A rich girl. All in all, it’s a pretty interesting and diverse casting. There’s Kevin who is the GBF and Veronica who is a Latina, then they also cast a black girl to play a character named Josie, and an Asian guy to play a character named Reggie, both were white in the comicboks. (yay, diversity!) For me, of course the most interesting characters would be Kevin and the antagonist, Cheryl because they throw so much shade and pop culture reference and I friggin live!!

Plot

Now the story, it will revolve around the town of Riverdale and the people who live in it. I haven’t got much from the first episode, but so far there are two main plots in the story. There’s a murder mystery-solving involving the main antagonist, Cheryl, and of course, a teenage love triangle between Archie, Betty, and Veronica.

If you love Pretty Little Liars, Wayward Pines, or Twin Peaks, I think you will enjoy this series because it has that same eerie atmosphere in it. I personally love this kind of show. Murder-mistery story arch, sullen and gloomy visual, couldn’t get any better. Even if you’re like me in the way that I don’t care that much about the whole teenage love triangle story, you can probably still enjoy the mystery aspect of the show.
