MCM: Riverdale’s Charles Melton

Do you know what day it is????? It’s Man Crush Monday and this one is long deserved. IScreenshot_20190311-152729 should have featured this guy right after Cole Sprouse. Today, I am rewriting my wrongs. He needs to know that I see him. I’ve always seen him, and if one day we cross paths the answer is yes. Yes, I will be Mrs. Charles Melton. Hey Playlisters! I binged watched a little of Riverdale this weekend. I wasn’t able to even make a dent because duty calls. I was able to watch 2 episodes and I had to ask myself. Well, honestly I asked Veronica but we all know she can’t hear me. I acknowledge that it is more the writer’s fault because she isn’t real. But, I have to know, Veronica how do you work around Reggie and not want to jump his bones? It boggles me. So, I’ll ask the actress that plays Veronica, Camila Mendes. Camila, how do you work around your boyfriend and not want to abandon the storyline. Camila, you’ve made a stellar choice. If you would have dated Archie in real life, then I would have to take you off of my faves list.

What can I say? Charles Melton is HOTT. Riverdale, if the only reason you hired him is Screenshot_20190311-152753eye candy then Camila and I thank you. I mean, yes. He is a great actor, but besides that…he’s hot. Sorry to go into a rabbit hole right now, but Veronica…girl. Reggie is 6 feet. Archie is only 5’11, and he wines a lot. Your dad wants to kill him. Reggie is the obvious choice. Again, I get it…the writers. I know. Anywho this leads me back on track with what I was saying. Charles Melton is in the 6-foot club.  Again Camila, excellent choice. That’s why I like her. She makes excellent choices.

Ok back to his talent. He will be in a few upcoming projects. The Sun Is Also a Star co-starring another MIP fave, Yara Shahidi. It is in theaters in May 2019. He will also be in the highly anticipated Bad Boys for Life with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence; set to be in theaters 2020. I’m glad he’s making great career moves because I’ll be able to look at him longer. So other than he’s talented, tall and hott that’s it for your MCM.

Princess Switch **Spoiler Alert**

I have been drug out of the debts of my hiding place yet again to discuss something that I am passionate about; Chessy Christmas Movies. Not just any movie though;  I want to talk about Princess Switch, (Starring Vanessa Hudgens, Sam Palladio and Nick Sager). It was great and I loved every over the top, excessive, extra mozzarella with a side of cheddar moment. However, there are a few things I would like to highlight. So, for old time’s sake here is my playlist. Alert, spoilers ahead.

Switch – TLC

The classic prince and commoner fall in love story is a classic for a reason. Yet, I was more interested in the Dutchess falling in love with the common guy. Now, that is the real story. I need a remake highlighting more of that story. Times are changing. Women have more power and influence. Sometimes I want to see the crown princess choose the normal guy.

Don’t Speak – No Doubt

Sam Palladio, is an actor I recognize from the hit u.s. drama, Nashville. He had a heavy southern accent on the show. So, it came as a surprise to a lot of people he was indeed British. The thing is…he slips in and out of his accent during the movie. In the famous words of Bruno Mars, “Don’t believe me? Just watch.”.

I’m in Love with Another Man -Jazmine Sullivan

Sure, it was totes adorbs (totally adorable) that the girls swapped and fell in love with the man in the others life. Especially, since it happened without the whole thing being trifling as hell. But, let’s address the huge elephant in the room.  If given the choice to be a princess is nice, but Nick Sagar made me rethink my childhood dreams. And that’s #factz. You can swim in his dimples and do your laundry on his abs and that’s all I could ever ask for in life. And, I’m going to shock the hell out of you. He’s British. Goes to show how useful accent coaches are.

As always thank you for supporting me. Especially since I have been missing in action. Don’t forget to like, comment, subscribe and follow me on WordPress and social media. Love you to pieces, besos!

Molly from Insecure,…Girl. ***Spoiler Alert***

So, I love Insecure on HBO. I stan it. Well, not literally but I definitely wait all week for it. I was actually watching when it was Awkward Black Girl on youtube from the first episode. So, my fandom runs super deep. The characters have changed a lot, with some cameos from the original cast. However, it remains centered on Issa’s character.  I think besides Issa, my favorite character is Kelly whose real name is Natasha Rothwell. She’s also a writer on the show. Which makes total sense, because she is hilarious.  We didn’t come to talk about Kelly (I’ll save her for a later post), we came to talk about Molly(Yvonne Orji). I don’t usually write recaps, reviews or talk about shows on here but Molly. Girl. You brought me out of my dark blogger’s cave.

Molly. She frustrated me so bad, I had to make her name a one-word sentence. I judged her super hard being in a friend’s with benefits relationship with her open marriage friend. I didn’t say anything though. I just looked the other way. It’s just Molly being Molly. When Andrew came along on this season, I prayed she wouldn’t screw it up. One, he seemed like a nice guy. She’s really good at messing up with nice guys. Secondly, the Interracial community needed this. Thirdly, I didn’t want her to be the professional black woman who couldn’t be happy with a man. We had enough of that with Being Mary Jane (Oh Mary Jane is way worse than Molly, btw). You know what, her screwing things up with Andrew isn’t the only thing I’m side eyeing her for. I kind of saw that coming because let’s face it. It’s Molly. She also stated she wanted a black guy (hey no judgment on that) so I didn’t really see the writers letting this work out anyway. I actually think that they only incorporated Andrew because of Issa Rae’s book, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. If you are not privy, there was a lot of hoopla about Issa saying Black women need to date Asian men. It was some other things stated that some people found offensive. Blah Blah Blah. Anywho, I think that was a way to subtly defend herself. Enough with real life.  We’re talking about the fictional characters we are all friends with in our heads, lol.

*****Spoiler Alert*****

Molly went on a second date with Andrew the following day because she had to cut their first date short. She was working on a project with her co-worker (we’ll get to that later. It ties in with her shittiness) and she needed to finish work. They go on the date, and they are joking around with each other (I would like to insert that this date felt awkward from jump…but whatever).  Molly says to Andrew, “Say’s the guy who kissed his homeboy’s girl.”(or something to that effect). He say’s, “Say’s the girl who slept with her married friend”. Feel free to comment the exact words. Anyway, Molly catches a BIG TIME attitude with Andrew and shoots back, “You don’t know the situation.“. She then tells him she’s ready to go and leaves him in the bar/restaurant. Ok, this part alone made me give Molly stabby eyes. She felt like her comment was totally ok to bring up. It was fine that she dug up something he told her to use as a joke. Because men are shitty, I can say what I want. When he brings up something shitty she has done, she gets mad. He’s now at fault. He made a bad joke. I’m upset. How dare he. That’s basically her attitude. Why was she able to say something to him that could be taken as offensive, but he can’t. She can dish it, but she can’t take it. She villanized him and used the “I’m looking out for me” motto over something she created. Molly creates a lot of her own messes. Personally and professionally. She gets in her own way. So far, she appears to be a good friend. She hasn’t messed up in that way at all…yet. When it comes to other people she only cares about her career. She can’t see how her actions lead her to these events. I think she’s terminally blind to it. It’s going to take her falling out with someone important to her. More than likely a friend, for her to realize she is in her own way. I think she needs to have a sit down with her therapist.

Her professional screw up is when she gave that presentation while her partner was away. He was wrong for micromanaging her. It’s annoying to have someone breathing down your neck while you’re trying to do your job. It’s frustrating when a difference in style becomes an error because it’s not how they would do it. I get it. But, to give a presentation that you both were working on alone. That’s wrong. You are essentially taking credit or the bulk of the glory for a project. You had a team member, and you are being a bad team member. That’s something that people who only look out for themselves do. That is also something that makes you not only a bad team member at work but in life. You can’t be a good partner to anyone when you only look out for number 1. Being a good teammate means helping someone up when they fall and working together. Even when it means you will have to share the credit with someone you aren’t necessarily excited about. Speak up for yourself, but that doesn’t mean stabbing someone in the back. I sort of want to Tyra Banks yell at her, because “I’ve never in my life yelled at a girl like this!”. Get it together Molly, “When my mother raises her voice at me like this, it’s because she loves me! I was rooting for you! We were all rooting for you!”. That’s a warning girl. Pull your life together and see your therapist. Figure out why you’re smiling in the wife’s face at the baby shower like you weren’t sleeping with her husband. It is not only his fault. He told you he was in an open relationship with his wife. It is not only his fault that he laid down with you. You let him willingly. You knew he was married. You knew his situation up front. Let’s stop this, “Everyone does Molly wrong. Everyone is mean to me garbage.”.  You’re better than this girl.

Ok, rant over. If you disagree sound off in the comments. If you agree, sound off in the comments. If you want to comment, sound off in the comments. Hey, just comment, lol.

MCM Bollywood Edition: Vicky Kaushal

It’s everyone’s favorite Man Crush Monday! With my hands in other writing projects, IScreenshot_20180716-205413 wasn’t quite sure if I would make the man crush deadline this week. However, I pulled through however late I am. This week I wanted to tip my hat to a genre of movies that I personally enjoy. I tend to visit a Bollywood film every so often (every week). This particular guy is a really really good actor, but I like him particularly because he’s hott. This week I’m showing all the love to Vicky Kaushal.

I’ve seen him in Lust Stories and Love per Square Foot, as well as a host of other titles I Screenshot_20180716-210054can’t pronounce nor spell without it being directly in front of me. I normally have to read the subtitles to know what’s happening, but if he marries me I will gladly read subtitles forever. Orrrrr I’ll be enrolling myself in the nearest Hindi class so I can at least say my vows, lol. I know you guys think I like him just because he’s hott, and you’re half right. However, he really is a good actor. He’s more than just a pretty face and he has the awards to prove it. He’s actually one of the few people that I believe when he’s on screen, and that’s a compliment. It’s hard for me to believe a lot of actors when they are on screen. They just seem like they’re acting. However, he actually makes me believe he’s actually the person he’s portraying on screen. That alone is swoon-worthy. I can probably ramble on forever, but I’ll try and keep it brief. Vicky Kaushal, I would gladly change my last name for you, lol. I may just have a crush on you.

MCM: Rotimi aka Dre of Starz’s Power

Welcome to everyone’s favorite Man Crush Monday. So, Rotimi basically makes me wantScreenshot_20180709-230414 to visit Nigeria. Spoiler Alert: He’s Nigerian, lol. I won’t lie, I absolutely hate him on the show. He has his moments when he’s hosting in the club where I remember he’s actually hott in person (he likes to call himself Butterscotch). However, in the show (sorry Dre) he just doesn’t do it for me.

However, in real life… (**fans myself from the heat) he is Screenshot_20180709-230521smokin’ hott. AND HE SINGSSSSSSS. Not like how hott guys say they can sing, but they actually suck. He actually is pretty good at it. So far he’s hott, he can sing and he’s pretty good at acting (because I hate his character…but not him, let’s be clear). I’ve posted him before on my Instagram page because he posted a thirst trap that I could appreciate. Rotimi, you are basically the love of my life and I have a crush on you.

MCM: Kim Woo Bin

If you have ever laid eyes on a Korean drama, you know exactly who this man is. He’sScreenshot_20180702-230751 tall and looks like he came off of a Korean runway. I last saw him in the Korean drama Uncontrollably Fond and the movie Friend: The Great Legacy before he took off for a year for health issues. I just want Woo Bin to know that even though he’s recovering that he still has women who want to cook him a hot meal and see him shirtless.

His look has a mixture of taking him home to meet your mother and see him naked. 

Screenshot_20180702-230646So Woo Bin is basically 6 feet 2 inches of hotness. His look has a mixture of taking him home to meet your mother and see him naked. He’s basically perfect and that makes me want to go ahead and take him off the market (wait, is he coupled up already? Someone comment.) Anywho I randomly out of the blue wanted to show my appreciation for this 28 soon to be 29-year-old tall drink of water. Just know if you ever want my number it’s already printed up on a business card for your wallet and in your DM’s for your convenience. Woo Bin, You’re a snack…no no a full course meal and I have a crush on you.

Midpoint Check In: Switching Gears

At this point, I’ve been running My Infinite Playlist for a little over half a year. I’ve happy turn up GIF by Originals-sourcelearned somethings about blogging, running a site and the direction in which the blog is going.  So far I have seen a little increase in dedicated readership. Which is what I would like. I want the reader who will stay with us through the journey. The passive readers are great too. I’m confident in the content that I create on this site, and I am sure once a member of our target audience experiences the world of M.I.P they will stick around for good.

“We are from all parts of the world and we like to travel the parts we have never been. Women of Color forge into areas that aren’t seen as traditionally ours…”

New Themes:

I realized the true direction I wanted to take this blog. It started off as an interracial blog, wonder woman beyonce GIF-sourceand I would still like to keep that as a topic that we visit. However, I really would like to focus on the overall theme that black women and other women of color are non-monolithic. We are all different, we are into different music, style of dress, dating patterns. We live alternative lifestyles and we are even into alternative forms of beauty. We can be vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian. We are from all parts of the world and we like to travel the parts we have never been. Women of Color forge into areas that aren’t seen as traditionally ours, like beer brewing and tattooing. K-music, J-music, Latin Pop, Afro Beat, EDM, and rock are just some of the genres where we are widespread and share an interest in. We are feminist, traditionalist, minimalist, members of the 1%, political powerhouses, Rap songstresses, and women extraordinaires. We are all of these things under the umbrellas of being people of color and being women. We can be any label we want to apply to ourselves and not just the label assigned to us. We are allowed that basic human right.

“I want to give a different perspective to people who have confined us to a box according to our assigned gender and race. “

Forging Ahead:

source (6)

So in the continuity of this blog, I would like to document those experiences of women. Especially, women of color who are forging in directions that aren’t traditionally ours to be had. I want to give a different perspective to people who have confined us to a box according to our assigned gender and race. We will continue to be all of the sexy millennial fun of man crush Monday, and we will mix it with the radical faces of women who refuse to be labeled.

“I will work hard to stay true to the new vision and direction we’re headed”

Hey You, Yes You. We’re Looking for you!

We are still looking for contributors that share our vision and that can offer a view into giphy (72)the world of women doing things differently. We also want people who can tell their personal experiences and stories of breaking free or living alternatively. I’m excited to share this new direction with you, and I’m thrilled to share a safe space for women of color to be who they are.  As always, thank you for supporting the blog on WordPress and Social Media. I will work hard to stay true to the new vision and direction we’re headed. I love you Playlisters, Besos!

MCM: The Kissing Booth’s Jacob Elordi aka Google, How old is Jacob Elordi?

Guess what day it isssssss???? It’s everyone’s favorite Man Crush Monday and boy do I Screenshot_20180609-235024have a Man Crush for you. I’ll give you a hint, you guys practically shut down google looking him up. Break the Internet anyone? Yeah, your searches went from anything like How old is Jacob Elordi to How tall is Jacob Elordi with Does Jacob Elordi have a girlfriend somewhere nestled in between. He play’s the very hunky Noah Flynn boyfriend to Shelly Evans on the Netflix hit, The Kissing Booth and in real life, he is the Boyfriend to the beautiful Joey King. Be jealous.

Jacob Elordi is one of the stars of Netflix most-watched Screenshot_20180609-235309original American teen romantic comedy alongside the very talented Joey King who you may remember from movies like Wish Upon and Crazy, Stupid, Love. I swear I wasn’t alone when I saw how tall he was in the movie (6’3) and of Legal age ( 1997, thank God…amiright??). In fact, I knew I wasn’t because I got on facebook later and saw a crap ton of statuses dedicated to, The Kissing Booth and Jacob Elordi simultaneously with the same questions. It made my heart pitter patter to know that my sisterens were so connected with my train of thought. We are of one mind (sort of).  I think I was just happy to know that if I ever ran into Jacob Elordi in real life and he was single (and I wouldn’t get arrested for trying to lick his abs…jk, jk lol) that my possible boyfriend would be taller than me. That’s (one of) the only thing/s a girl could ask for. Jacob Elordi, I would like to climb you like a tree (again j/k. j/k haha) and also I have a crush on you.

As always, thank you for supporting My Infinite Playlist. Check out more photos of Jacob below. Please don’t forget to comment, follow, subscribe and like us on Word Press and Social Media. I really love you guys to pieces. Besos!
