'The Family' Review (complete with GIF's!)

Hello again blogosphere! I thought to finish off the lovely month that is March, I'd say goodbye by reviewing a totally underrated movie that came out ages ago, sound like a plan? I have to admit, I only watched it originally because it had Dianna Agron in it, and if something even vaguely 'Glee' related is made, I'm the first one to know about it. But the big question is, was it worth it? You'll have to read on and see my friends.

I can honestly say, no bias prevalent, that I really enjoyed this movie. I have to say, I was a bit dubious at first. The only thing I knew about the movie was that it centered around some guy who was in a mob. When you combine a mob movie with Robert De Niro, your first thought is violence - and lots of it. But no, I say this now, this movie is a comedy, 100%. Sure, there's violence here and there (the main character used to be in the mafia, what do you expect?), but are you going to be scarred for life? Definitely not. It's more like a dark, action comedy then anything else, so all you pacifists out there, I urge you to calm your farms.

The movie revolves around Fred (Robert De Niro), who having testified against many of his NYC mafia bosses and partners, now has a bounty of 20 million dollars on his head. In order to ensure the safety of him and his family, they're all shipped off by the government to somewhere in Europe. Unable to change their maniacal, homicidal ways, it seems that every 90 days, they're being moved to another location. This is where the movie begins, their FBI handler (Tommy Lee Jones) sick of their incompetence and shipping them off one final time to Normandy, France, leaving them with one final warning to keep a low profile.

Of course this doesn't go according to plan, the Blake family getting into all kinds of mischief. Within the first week, Fred's wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) has managed to blow up the local supermarket, their daughter Belle (Dianna Agron, yay!) has extracted revenge on a significant number of her classmates, and their son Warren (John D'Leo) has put his forgery skills to good use in the black market of his high school.

Of course, the drama heightens majorly when it turns out that one of Fred's ex mafia bosses is after them. But, to continue my tradition of not revealing too many spoilers, I will leave it there with my plot retelling.

As I said before, I thought this movie was super awesome. It's fun, it's action packed and it's super enjoyable. What sets this movie apart from your traditional mafia movie is a) it's not one massive blood fest and b) it doesn't take itself so seriously. When it comes down to it, it's a comedy. Sure, they've thrown some dramatic elements in there as well, but even in the movie's most serious moments, there's a satirical undertone. Despite some of the movie's exaggerated and kind of absurd moments, it's able to produce some ample laugh-out-loud moments without compromising it's tether to reality.

What I really love about it is the way that the entire family is totally nonchalant about their majorly outrageous behaviour, and the fact that despite the Blake family's homicidal tendencies, they all still manage to form rather functional relationships with one another.

Apparently, some reviewers were saying that the movie has heaps of problems and a bunch of other stuff that I didn't care to read, but I seriously don't understand why. Why criticise a perfectly enjoyable movie? I don't understand. So you know, just disregard everything you read except Teenage Fanatic and tumblr (self promotion!). But seriously! I don't get it. The acting was super awesome from legitimately all of the cast, there were never any of those random, boring moments, and it was super funny. What more can you ask for in a movie?

So whatever, just ignore the haters because I'm gonna say it again, I thought it was pretty cool. If you're one of those people who can't handle any violence at all and are in the mood for an over the top, clean-cut family comedy, I'm afraid this movie isn't for you. However, if you don't mind a little murder here and there, and are after a smart, witty and seriously awesome motion picture, you've come to the right place my friends. Now all that's left to do is either be good and legal and download the movie from iTunes, kick it old-school and take a trip to the DVD store, or put your torrent to good use.

So that's the end of the post! I hope you all enjoyed my little random review there to end the month, and perhaps have even found something that has piqued your interest. A massively underrated movie I say. Anyway, I'm just rambling now, you're free to leave. Til' next time . . .

5 Musicals Based on Movies that Shouldn't Exist

Greetings once again my readers! No, you have not suddenly obtained dyslexia, you did indeed read the title correctly. Believe it or not, musical theatre fanatics can be impartial, when did that happen? Anyway, as you've probably already gathered from the rather aptly named title, today, I'm going to be calling out some of the most awful musicals based on movies to ever be written (assuming I can get past my bias, here's hoping). Without further ado, here they are . . .

Shrek the Musical

Yes, this was a thing. Why someone would turn an animated movie about an ogre living on a swamp into an all singing, all dancing Broadway musical I do not know, but apparently someone was mad enough to do it. I have to admit, the songs are alright, and it of course starred the amazingly awesome Sutton Foster as Fiona, but that doesn't change the fact that there's an ogre on stage singing! It's just not right. And seriously, when it comes to musicals, I'm pretty much the nicest, most biased judge out there, but with Shrek, I just can't deal. Also, there's just absolutely no way anyone ever can make a fake, green, massive ogre head look anything but tacky. 

Carrie the Musical

Once again, why? Horror and Broadway shouldn't be a thing (unless of course it's 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show', then go right ahead). Can't you just imagine Carrie killing a bunch people as she bursts into an emotional power ballad? No, just no. In all seriousness, to begin Act II, there is a musical number about the slaughtering of a pig. I kid you not, that's really a thing! How? I do not know (and don't want to). I think we can all agree that this was a bad idea. It's not that there's anything wrong with 'Carrie' itself, I mean I sang it's praises when I reviewed the movie remake, but when there's singing and murder, it's just a no (unless it's Chicago, but that's different - that's awesome).

The Lord of the Rings Musical

This is just getting ridiculous. Seriously, Lord of the Rings the musical? That shouldn't ever be a thing (but unfortunately, it was). I guess when you throw around ideas for Broadway musicals it's always a gamble as to what will be a hit and what will spectacularly fail, but I could've told you straight up that a musical about singing midgets that isn't 'Snow White' would never work. Let's face it, the 'Lord of the Rings' book series and movie trilogy was predominantly aimed at little nerdy fanboys. Would they ever rock up to a musical? God no. The seats would be filled with either women, gay men, or members of the elderly community. Now I'm not the best at maths, but even I can see that doesn't add up. Plus, it's just a stupid, terrible idea. 

Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark

Immediately blacklisted after the guy playing Spiderman majorly injured himself by falling from his harness, it was obvious from the beginning that this was going to be a flop. Obviously, the production value's pretty awful (and clearly unsafe). From the blatantly obvious harnesses to the non-descreet stage hands running back and forth, there's certainly nothing special about the effects used in the show. Apart from that major stuff, the musical just happens to be super boring. We get it, there's a guy in a unitard who can climb walls, big whoop, shut up and stop singing about it. I'm honestly pretty sure the only reason there were any audience members at all was because people thought they were going to see a guy nearly kill himself (yet everyone was sorely disappointed). If you're going to make a musical about super heroes, why not make 'The Incredibles - The Musical'?

Breakfast at Tiffany's the Musical

This musical is notoriously one of Broadway's biggest flops. Why you may ask? It probably has something to do with the fact that it never even made it to Broadway originally. Starring Mary Tyler Moore way back in 1966, the musical was all set for Broadway before it was cancelled after 4 preview performances. Because apparently people just can't let terrible musicals lie, it was resurrected last year oddly enough with 'Game of Thrones' star Emilia Clarke. Why? Nobody knows. Whatever the motivation, the musical sucked. It was described as 'ill-conceived' and 'poorly executed', and if that doesn't scream awful, I don't know what does. Spoiler alert, if something sucks so much that it doesn't make it to Broadway in the first place, don't try and remake it 50 something years later with someone who's never done musical theatre before. What has logic become?

So that's the end of my super negative post. Now, you don't have to torture yourself and sit through all of these (because you so would've if it hadn't been for this post). Just spend your time binge watching awesome, super amazeballs musicals and ignore these abominations. I encourage you to go live your lives now! Til' next time . . .

Liebster Award Nomination

Greetings my readers! I have some very exciting news to share with you all (which let's face it, the majority of you won't care about, but whatever). Some of you may be aware of the Liebster awards, but if you have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about, have no fear, I'm here to help. 'Liebster' in German meaning dearest (and yes, I had to google that, not all of us can be fluent in German), this award was apparently created as a way to welcome new blogs into the blogosphere, and guess what, I've been nominated! How nice is that? So yeah, I'd just like to send a massive thank you to Ruby at RUBIDEUX for nominating me (go check out her awesome blog as well), because seriously, how cool is that? I feel like I'm moving up in the world.

Apparently a winner will be picked next week, but honestly, I'm just stoked to be nominated (though yeah, winning would be nice too). In order to continue the Liebster Award tradition, I now have to answer a bunch of questions before nominating a bunch of blogs myself. Challenge accepted!

#1: Is this your first blog?

Yes, definitely. Unless lame tumblr accounts count (but they probably don't).

#2: What blogs/people inspire you?

I really enjoy reading blogs that are funny and witty, and also ones that are written by and for teens. And of course, my number one icon in life that inspires me would have to be Lea Michele (in all her glory).

#3: Are you in college? OR working?

That would be a no. Unless being a full-time high school student is a thing, then yes, I work constantly.

#4: Top 6 Beauty Products?

Ooh, this is a hard one. To narrow it down, I would have to say -
- 'Sweetie' Lip Cream from Topshop
- Baby Lips by Maybelline
- Topshop Nails Pastel Glitter
- Daisy in the Air by Marc Jacobs
- Favourite Things Cosmetic Brush Set Forever 21
- Naked 3 Palette by Urban Decay

#5: What's your blog (mostly) about?

My blog is about as random as it gets. It's basically just an explosion of television, musical theatre, celebrities and random other stuff that's relevant to teens.

#6: Where is your favourite place to shop?

I have some pretty quirky clothing sense, I'm generally the girl constantly walking around in skirts and occasionally some smart knee highs. So when I shop, I really like checking out some of the cute, vintage stuff from Modcloth. Then again, I always love having a browse on the Forever 21 site.

#7: What are your favourite magazines?

This sounds pretty cliche for a teenage girl, but I really love reading Teen Vogue and stuff like that. In Australia, there are magazines pretty similar to that called Dolly and Girlfriend, and I always make sure to get myself a copy when I'm out and about.

#8: If you were stuck on a deserted island, what 3 things would you NEED?

How am I supposed to condense this list to three things?! Ugh, why does life have to be so hard. I guess if it came down to it, the things I would 100% die without would be wifi, my laptop and some cheesy puff pastry sticks (yes, I'm that shallow).

#9: How frequently do you blog?

I try and do at least two posts a week, but then sometimes I get on a roll and become some sort of blogging maniac, pumping out one every day. I guess it just really depends on how much homework I have (and how much time I spend procrastinating).

#10: What are your blogging-goals?

Of course, it would be really awesome if my blog got really famous and then I was some kind of international blogging sensation, although realistically this probably isn't ever going to happen. I think it would just be cool to keep writing about all the stuff I'm interested in, and hopefully keep getting the chance to interest and entertain people with my writing.

#11: What's your Instagram/Facebook?

Yes, shameless self promotion!

My instagram is: @teenagefanaticblog
And my Facebook is:

So now, finally, what all you bloggers out there have been waiting for (and what all you other readers don't care about), my list of nominees. Drumroll please . . .

The Teen Fashion Blogger
Ditsy and the Damned
Slice Of Vanilla
Chloe's Watsits
Paige of Fashion
From runways to realways
Emma Griffy
Beth and Beauty
Boho Geek

Congratulations to all of these bloggers! Soon enough, we'll all be seeing little blog posts like this one just pop up everywhere. Without further ado, here are my questions that you guys need to answer:

1. What things do you post about on your blog mainly?
2. If you could be any animal, what would it be?
3. What is your dream job?
4. What is your favourite movie?
5. What celebrities inspire you?
6. What blogs are you drawn to the most?

Bam, have fun answering those. If you end up being like me and are totally confused as to how to structure this post, calm your farm, just take a look at this magical link that will tell you everything you need to know:

I know this post has been super random, but who cares, I got nominated for an award!

How cool is that?! That's pretty much all. Til' next time . . .

6 Non-Innappropriate Things Barney Stinson Has Taught Us

Hello again my readers! To celebrate the upcoming conclusion of the legendary show 'How I Met Your Mother', I thought I would do a little post highlighting some of the not totally inappropriate things that we can learn from main character Barney Stinson (portrayed by Neil Patrick Harris for those of you who have not lived). I know what you're thinking, has Barney Stinson ever said anything appropriate before in his life, how am I possibly going to do this? Well prepare to have your expectations exceeded, because Teenage Fanatic has got you covered. Pleasantries over and done with, lets get into it . . .

Lesson #1: Dress to the Nines

There is never a moment when Barney Stinson is not looking sharp. Is this just by chance? I think not. The Barnacle is known for his moto of 'suiting up', and implements this pretty much all the time. Just give him some cufflinks and a tie and he'll be set for life. He's even got a song about his devotion to suits, so let's face it, no one can beat that. However, that doesn't mean that we can't also try to look snazzy ourselves. Just to be clear, I'm not asking everyone to do a Barney and slap on a suit, because that would be super weird. All I'm saying is that we should all try and dress in something pretty snazzy (or at least something that Barney would deem awesome). Let's all get into the Stinson zone and have our own trademark fashion statement that we're never seen without. No, that doesn't mean you should discard the tracksuit pants (ever, because they're super awesome), it just means maybe don't wear them to a wedding or something (talk about an awkward turtle moment).

Lesson #2: Always be Photo Ready

Barney's ability to prepare himself for a photo is actually quite remarkable. Whether he's stifling a sneeze or downing some hot salsa, the Stinson is always ready for his close up. Unfortunately, we don't all seem to posses this super human talent, us normal folk forced to actually prepare for photos. However, next time your in front of the lens, why don't you give it a go. Let's establish our own signature pose, and soon enough, people will be accusing us of having super human abilities (which let's face, is everyone's major life goal). For some tips and tricks, you can always mosey on over to Barney's actual, real life blog (or do what any normal person would do in a photo and just smile, that always works).

Lesson #3: Be Confident

It's a well known fact that if Barney Stinson is anything, he's certainly confident. Sure he's had some hits and also some spectacular misses, but one thing he's never seen without is self assurance. Chuck away your self doubt and just replace it with awesomeness instead. Why worry when you could just throw on a smug smile and live your life free from nerves? Next time you have an assessment due or some big responsibility you have to deal with, just think, what would Barney do? Sure, in most cases he'd probably just blow off all his duties and engage in a mammoth session of laser tag, but you can kind of take that and appropriate it to your own life (in a way that doesn't make you fail miserably). Basically, just deck yourself out in an optimistic attitude and have so much self-belief that it verges on arrogance. Sure, you may become a friendless loner, but at least you can wave goodbye to that self-doubt for good. 

Lesson #4: Become a Master at Devising Plans

It's no secret that when it comes to meticulously laying out plans, Barney Stinson's your man. From 'The Lorenzo Von Matterhorn' to 'The Mrs Stinsfire', it seems that every hoax and scheme that he's ever created is all down to his ability to plan. Don't get me wrong, you don't have to only use this power for evil (although it is more fun). Whether it's doing your homework or organising your day, I think everyone could benefit from some better planning. Just think, how much easier would your life be if instead of leaving things till the last minute, we all actually did things ahead of time and made them super awesome. Also, what a way to transform mundane everyday tasks into something not so painstakingly boring. Want to jazz up your life? Go all 'Hannah Montana' and devise a whole new persona for yourself, complete with your very own website and Facebook page. Or you know, just come up with a couple of schemes to maybe get out of some homework or something, however extreme you want to go with it.

Lesson #5: Accept All Challenges

Whenever a challenge arrises, Barney is always the first to accept, no questions asked. No matter how great or absurd the task may be, he always sets out to complete it. Sure, sometimes he's doing ridiculous stuff like wearing a ducky tie or dressing as an old man, but you've got to admire his perseverance. Next time you're tossing up between taking on a challenge or being a sad, boring loner, try taking a leaf out of Barney's book and go for the first option. At the very least, it'll make life a little more interesting.  Gone are the days of awkwardly declining people's requests, just throw a Stinson and embrace it. When in doubt, just come out with a confident 'challenge accepted', and you'll be respected by all. As I always say, why sit back and be boring when you can spice your life up with risk and uncertainty?

Lesson #6: Always take Advantage of High Five Opportunities 

Don't know how to celebrate an achievement? Have no fear, just whip out your palm and be the initiator of some super awesome high fives. You don't ever need an excuse to engage in these celebratory hand connections, just get things started whenever you're feeling excited or even slightly amused. Having a bad day? Make things better with a nice and comforting slap to the palm of your friend's hand. However, no matter what the occasion, never settle for a mediocre high five. Just think, would the Barnacle approve of this? You know what they say, if you don't succeed, try and try again. Just keep slapping away awkwardly until you get it right. I have to warn you now, there is a chance that you'll be left hanging on many occasions (which let's face it, is always a blow to the ego), but never give up. Worst comes to worst, there are always mental self fives to motivate you. 

Congratulations on finishing my random little post! Perhaps you could adapt these lessons to your own life (or totally ignore them, let's face it, it doesn't affect me either way). Feel free to move on with your lives now! Til' next time . . .

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Greetings once again my readers! Today as you may or may not be aware is St Patrick's Day, so yay! Of course, this holiday doesn't really mean anything and is normally forgotten, but any excuse to make a celebratory blog post, am I right? So what will I be bombarding you guys with to commemorate this pointless occasion you may ask? Well, today I plan on listing some of the funniest and most outrageous St Patrick's Day costumes (because yes, some people actually go full out with it). So without further ado, feast your eyes on some of these monstrosities . . .


At first glance. this costume doesn't really look that bad. Sure, it's hideously green and flamboyant, but it's not exactly a massive shocker. That is however, until you find out that it's called a 'Big Daddy Pimp Costume'. I just gave one question, why? Why would someone want to wear this ever, let alone on St Patrick's Day? What does that have to do with anything ever? Who knows though, Ireland may be swarming with pimps, and this may be a really clever costume (although I seriously doubt that). It's just creepily weird and wrong, and definitely shouldn't be seen on anyone ever. 


I honestly don't know who ever thought this was a good idea, but low and behold, someone did. The sad thing is that they probably put so much effort into this. Paper mâché is difficult and takes a lot of effort! Not to mention all that exquisite paint work. Then, on top of all that, they had to be smothered by that mutant mask all day. I mean, I have to give them credit, wearing what looks like a 6 year old's first art project takes some determination (especially when they have in them the smallest breathing holes known to man). But seriously, no, just no. 


Well isn't this just extraordinarily sad. I have to admit, I've attempted to dress my dog up many a time (unfortunately to no avail), but this may be going just a little to far. Do dogs really need to be roped in to the St Patrick's Day holiday? Let's face it, the majority of humans don't even celebrate it, so why force it upon your pets? And why dress them as a leprechaun? You could just go with something simple and green, but no, why do that when you can dress your canine up like a mythical, which granting midget? 


I have to say, this does get the point across. Considering St Patrick's Day is renowned for being all about pub crawls and basically anything ever to do with alcohol, this is a pretty accurate representation of the day's festivities. And who doesn't love an honest costume? Plus, it's gold and sparkly, and that just screams celebration (and awesomeness). Also, doesn't that guy just look so happy wearing it? Personally, if I saw someone so creepily happy in an advert, I'd be steering clear, but then again, I (thankfully) know nothing about how to market beer costumes. 


Well isn't this is just a bundle of weirdness? And once again, what's with the animal thing? So many questions, so little time (and sanity). I honestly don't even know what this is. What kind of deranged person would be like 'hey, why don't we get a pig and put it in a green top hat and make it push a trolley that's carrying Guinness for no particular reason'? It looks like a weird screen cap from the Irish remake of Babe (if one were to ever be made). I suppose logic's too far gone to even say anything else about this one. What is life? What have we come to?

So that's the end of my (sort of) celebratory, super short St Patrick's Day post! I hope you vaguely and enjoyed or at the very least, are as disturbed by humanity as I am. Enjoy your lives! Til' next time . . .

Legally Blonde: The Musical Review (with GIFS!)

Greetings again my readers! As most of you probably already know, when it comes to musical theatre freaks, I'm pretty up there in terms of my obsession. So I thought, why not indoctrinate everyone else ever and force them to sit through a musical review? It's okay guys, no thanks needed. Anyway, today I thought I'd do a brutally honest review of 'Legally Blonde: The Musical' (hence the title) that came out way back in 2007. Is it worth watching, or should you give it a miss? Well you'll just have to keep on reading.

I have to say straight up, I think you all should go watch this musical right now. I'm serious, it's actually really entertaining. If you're looking for a super high class, sophisticated night out at the theatre, then this certainly isn't for you. But if you're not totally boring and are just looking for a fun and lively show (or just love the colour pink), then this will definitely be a winner.

The musical is obviously based on the 2001 movie by the same name, following Elle Woods as she tries to follow her ex-boyfriend Warner into Harvard Law School with the help of her sorority sisters from Delta Nu (acting as her own Greek chorus).

After a quick studying montage and a little song and dance, the Harvard professors seem to be on board, and before you know it, she's got a place at one of the most competitive universities in the world (I never said that it was logical). However, everything's not smooth sailing from there. Like any good musical, there's a villain, this time in the form of Warner's new uptight, brunette (scandal!) girlfriend Vivienne (who also just happens to be an awful human being).

After the antagonist has been firmly identified, next comes the love interest. Enter Emmett, a young teacher's assistant with a chip on his shoulder (which would be a super hilarious joke if you'd seen the musical):

I don't want to give too much away and put myself at risk of becoming known for my constant spoilers, but just a hint, this goes down in a courtroom in Act 2:

Are you lured or what?

I seriously loved this musical. Having seen the Australian production live as well as the (totally legal! go me) recording of the original Broadway version (thank you MTV), this translates awesomely in any setting. When you listen to all the songs out of context, you'd just think that this musical's one big, confusing, pink mess, but when you see the whole thing, it's actually really funny and clever. If you were one of those people who left 'Wicked' rooting for the glittery and popular Glinda rather than the protagonist Elphaba, then this musical is definitely for you.

Unlike some other movie inspired musicals (*cough* 'Shrek the Musical' *cough*), 'Legally Blonde' really measures up. There's never a dull moment, as everyone in both the productions I saw looked as if they were hyped up on Red Bull from start to finish (in the best way possible). Everyone in both of the casts I saw did a super awesome job, and it's honestly just such a fun musical. I still can't get over how well trained the dogs were though, seriously! I've had my dog for about a year now, and she's barely toilet trained.

All in all, if you're looking for an awesome musical to check out, or are simply devoted to the colour pink, I highly suggest you give 'Legally Blonde: The Musical' a go. Let's face it, who wouldn't want to see a musical all about the awesomeness of females (besides all straight males ever)? If it's not coming to you anytime soon, don't give up, just check it out on the godsend that is youtube.

Yay, you've reached the end of my super short, slightly random first ever musical review! I hope you've been inspired to go try out something new and awesome, and if you weren't, I don't know what you're still doing here reading this, that's just weird. Also, how consistent has my blogging been lately? But stop it you guys, there's no need to congratulate me or anything, it's totally fine.

Yes, I just wanted an excuse to use that gif. That's all for now! Til' next time . . .

Most Embarrassing Tattoos

Hello again my readers! Today it seems I will once again be gracing you all with a blog post, this time highlighting some of the most embarrassing tattoos seen on any human ever. I know that's a big call, but brace yourselves for a world of weirdness my friends. I advise you now, use these as cautionary tales and not a 'how-to guide' for future permanent inky endeavours (I don't want to be held responsible for making more creepy looking humans). Pleasantries complete, let's take a look . . .


At first glance, this may just look like some girl's super weird injury or perhaps some insane, majorly creepy birth defect. Oh no, this is a 100% deliberate action. Apparently in some people's minds, having weird, foe detachable legs is desirable. I have to admit, back in the day I was quite the doll enthusiast, but not to the point where I strived to look like one. This is just weird, and oh so disturbing. I'm all for the weird and wacky, but this is just ridiculous.



Yes, someone actually got this tattooed on their body. Were they under the influence of some hardcore drugs and alcohol? Hopefully, because if someone was totally sober when they got this, they have some serious issues. I mean yeah, it's funny, but does that mean you have it tattooed on your stomach and photograph it for the world to see? No, it most certainly does not. I can just imagine conservative mothers hurrying their children away from this dude at the beach in hopes that they don't get scarred for life. I actually still can't even come to terms with this. Why?


I can't lie to you, I actually love this so much. Unicorns and dolphins? I ship it. And what makes it better is the fact that they're yoloing together on a rainbow, what in life is better than that? Nothing. But as a tattoo? I have to admit, it slowly tiptoes itself into creepy territory. It would be totally appropriate if it were to be tattooed on a 5 year old (however there'd be a lot of other problems with that). When you think about it, to have this actually permanently tattooed on your skin is pretty disturbing. I guess there's always a fine line between weird and awesome. I've been tossing up a lot between them and I myself am still struggling with the decision. Hmm, creepy, awesome, creepy awesome . . .


When you first look at this, you're confused for sure, but you don't really get it. Why is there a random bearded dude with lady parts? And then it hits you, it's supposed to be a female Jesus. 

I know, this is some disturbing stuff. What would motivate someone to tattoo a female Jesus on their leg? I honestly cannot answer that (and if there's someone who can, you have a problem). Boredom, entertainment value maybe? Whatever the answer, this is still super weird (and not awesome weird, just cray). Whoever tattooed this on him must've been pretty confused (or seriously disturbed if this was just a part of their ordinary catalogue). 


This is one of the worst things I've seen in my entire life, and that is not an overstatement. First up, what kind of disturbed person would tattoo the cast of the worst movie series known to man on themselves? Second of all, if you're going to get it tattooed, why get it to look like that? I mean, if you ask for a 'Twilight' themed tattoo, there's no possible way it can be good, but this? This is ridiculous. Edward looks like tanned Voldemort and Jacob looks like his face has been jammed into a sandwich press. Weirdly enough, Bella is the only one who looks like an actual vampire, and she's the only human there! The bigger question however is why someone would do this to themselves. From the look of the dodgy looking hand in the top left of the photo, this person isn't young or anything, so there's no way they were just stupid and immature. No, this person is some kind of ancient, devoted fan. 'Twilight' is seriously the worst thing on the planet! Why? Why!

Now you've reached the end of my short little random blog post. Yay! Keep these monstrosities in mind for the rest of your life, and remember, think before you ink. That's all folks. Til' next time . . .
