  3. Yes Bianca! She did it! First Canadian (man or woman) to win a grand slam! What a huge year for Canadian sports - with the Raptors winning their first Championship. And first person born in the 2000's to win a grand slam. Bianca's game is so good, and so fun to watch. I love her violent forehand swing, and her crouching swing. That second set was so tense. She was so close to winning and then Serena started to come back and you're just like, "She's only 19......what if she can't handle this pressure?" But she prevailed and that's going to great for her experience, to go through a match like that where the crowd was rooting heavily for her opponent. #SheTheNorth #SheTheChamp
  4. Bianca!! What a second set comeback - down 2 breaks and winning 5 straight games. And battling in the first set against all those break points. This is like a dream for her - playing in your first grand slam final against the greatest ever. Just one more, girl! #SheTheNorth
  5. Cool theory about the video: https://www.buzzfeed.com/eleanorbate/taylor-swift-lover-music-video-theory Also when they're dancing in the "red room," Taylor's in a gold/yellow dress and the guy is wearing gold/yellow pants which represents: "I once believed love would be burning red but its golden” (from Daylight). LOVED that throwback reference!

  7. I don't mind if she "dances" on a few songs. It's not like it's hardcore dances moves - it's just a few moves. I don't see anything wrong with that. I know she's not going to be doing that in her 40's. Speaking of singer-songwriter mode, she did a Live Lounge for the BBC Radio. I really love the Can't Stop Loving You cover, and the re-imagined Holy Ground (maybe that's a preview of what's to come when she re-records her old albums, they'll be new versions?). Songs in spoiler tags.....also Billboard numbers are in there (stupid editing):

  9. AAHHH!!! What an album! I knew Taylor wouldn't disappoint me. So many good songs! Snap reaction: the two early standouts for me (not including the 4 songs already released) are The Man and Cruel Summer. I'll post more later, after more listens.
  10. Not a fan of "Bad Guy" but thank God! "Let's create 20 remixes so the song will stay number one!!" Give me a break, OTR! LOL Please change that stupid rule, Billboard!
  11. So apparently the album will be put on streaming right away. Say goodbye to the one-million-in-the-first-week streak (pure album sales). I really think she could've got more than one million again if she waited, but I guess streaming rules and she's given in to it. Only Taylor and Adele can sell pure albums, so it will be interesting to see what Adele does with her next album. Ugh, streaming. LOL.

  13. I love this one the most out of the four songs from the album. Favourite parts/lyrics: - Can I go where you go? / Can we always be this close forever and ever? (love singing the "gooooooo" and "cloooooose" in high notes LOL) - And I'm highly suspicious that everyone who sees you wants you / I've loved you three summers now, honey, but I want 'em all - With every guitar string scar on my hand / I take this magnetic force-of-a-man to be my lover The song was written by Taylor; produced by Taylor and Jack Antonoff. It's the first song since "Red" that she's released as a single that she solely wrote. I think it's been 7 years since she released this type of song as a single - a love story with instruments. The last one was "Begin Again" in 2012. Lover Track List 1. I Forgot That You Existed 2. Cruel Summer 3. Lover 4. The Man 5. The Archer 6. I Think He Knows 7. Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince 8. Paper Rings 9. Cornelia Street 10. Death By a Thousand Cuts 11. London Boy 12. Soon You'll Get Better (feat. Dixie Chicks) 13. False God 14. You Need to Calm Down 15. Afterglow 16. ME! (feat. Brendon Urie) 17. It's Nice to Have a Friend 18. Daylight Less than a week to go! So excited!

  15. I loved it!! I thought it was very funny, had some heart, and soapy. My favourite character so far is "Jennie" because I thought she was the funniest/bitchy-est. I really like the concept too - them playing characters that have their names and some of their real life history, and now they're coming together to try and create a "reboot".
  16. Happy that Bianca won, becoming the first Canadian woman in 50 years to win this tournament...........but this is definitely not how anyone wanted it to play out, especially Bianca who dreamed of this moment (playing at home against the greatest of all time in the finals). If she can stay healthy, I think she's going to have a great career.
  17. Monday's ending on the rooftop was so good with the sunset, cinematic music, and the sweeping camera from above. It was classic B&B cheese that I love. LOL I've always liked this baby switched storyline, even with Evil Thomas. I thought it should've gone longer with Evil Thomas getting away with things; and more people starting to get clued in. I thought everyone found out too quickly - just a week!
  18. I've always hated how Billboard does the Hot 100 charts when it came to combining remixes into one. That's a big reason why Old Town Road has the record now. Justin Bieber even came out with a "Bad Guy" remix to try and get Billie Eilish to #1 and prevent OTR from breaking the "Despacito"/"One Sweet Day" record. IMO, a remix should be counted as its own, and not added to the original song.

  21. The numbers will continue to decline on television no matter what. I just wish we had access to more ratings data like L+3, L+7 and streaming numbers, so we can get a reasonable look at how many people are actually watching.
  22. No surprise there. That's what happens with you get two of the best all time players playing in a 5th set tie break for the championship. Speaking of tie breaks, I really think Wimbledon should change the rules for the 5th set again. I would love it for them to go back to "win by 2" in the 5th set just for the championship - there's no next match to be tired for.

    HBO: Big Little Lies

    The season finale episode will probably win some awards for the show, Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep and Laura Dern. Loved: Mary Louise and Celeste's courtroom scenes; Mary Louise and Renata confrontation at the coffee shop; Renata destroying her husband's toys with the bat. Season 3 definitely needs to be longer, whether it's the amount of episodes or length of episode.
  24. I'm sure CBS have data to see where the numbers are falling so much. They're probably going to give him a chance after CBS resolves their dispute with the TV service providers.
  25. Cold As You, White Horse, Dear John, All Too Well, All You Had To Do Was Stay, Delicate..........and now The Archer joining the emotional-track-5-club. The song was written and produced by Taylor and Jack Antonoff, so it's not surprising that it has an 80's vibe to it with the synth and vocal reverb. I like how the song has this slow-easy-going-constant-flow with the tempo and continuous bass beat rarely changing. I love the lyrics! Favourite ones are: - Screaming who could ever leave me, darling / But who could stay? - And I cut off my nose just to spite my face / Then I hate my reflection for years and years - I wake in the night / pace like a ghost / The room is on fire / invisible smoke /And all of my heroes die all alone / Help me hold on to you - 'Cause they see right through me / They see right through me / They see right through / Can you see right through me? / They see right through / They see right through me / I see right through me / I see right through me (This is my favourite part of the song: They see.....Can You see.....then she raises her voice a bit when she gets to I See) - 'Cause all of my enemies started out friends / Help me hold on to you
