Hello Hip Hop Heads, R&B lovers and Horror Fans,

Today I will be reviewing Jazmine Sullivan’s highly anticipated return EP, “Heaux Tales”. The concept of this EP alone is dope af! She has interlude/skits of woman telling their own relationship stories. Jazmine’s vocal range on each track is crazy! In my opinion she is underrated as a singer/vocalist! Each track on this EP shows the different sides and different types of woman. I love that she flips the double standard and sings about woman owning their sexuality! The features are also amazing, from Anderson Paak to H.E.R.! Don’t sleep on this project it is definitely a contender for best R&B album of the year! She set the bar high!!!

Thank you for reading my EP review. Hope you all enjoyed it! Until next time horror fiends and hip hop heads! While you’re at it follow my blog on social media @7octoberz on Instagram and Facebook! Also follow me on YouTube and IGtv to watch my podcast Nightmare on Sedgwick Avenue.

NIGHTMARE ON SEDGWICK AVENUE – “BROTHERHOOD & EPIC SUPERNATURAL JOURNEY!!! – SUPERNATURAL SHOW FINALE”

Show: Supernatural Show Finale

Main Cast: Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, Alexander Calvert and more!

Release Date: Nov. 19, 2020

IMDB synopsis: Two brothers follow their father’s footsteps as hunters, fighting evil supernatural beings of many kinds, including monsters, demons and gods that roam the earth.

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

It all began in Kansas with 2 brothers fighting monsters and hunting things…

It took me awhile to finally write this post! I had to process the show finale of “Supernatural” and even watched the last few episodes twice! It was a bittersweet moment, as all of us Supernatural fans know we have been told this show would end multiple times and it kept going. So for me it was hard to believe that this was the end of this amazing monstrous journey! This show started in 2005 and I remember watching the first episode and being immediately drawn in! I grew up being told scary legends by my Abuelita so I always loved scary stories about monsters and the supernatural.

This show immediately brought nostalgia and the characters of Sam and Dean Winchester immediately grew on me! They were the brothers I never had, I literally grew up with them watching them thru the screen. I was a Sophomore in High School when this show started and now I am an adult. I spent 15 years of my life growing with these characters. So when I tell you it was hard knowing this show was ending I mean it! I cried when I saw the last 3 episodes, it was like saying goodbye to my extended family!

Sam and Dean Winchester were the embodiment of true brotherhood! They loved each other so much they did whatever every time to bring each other back from the dead. Their bond is something I can relate to with my sisters. They did a great job of showing that family always sticks together thru thick and thin. Even though they were the central characters, we can’t forget the rest of the cast that did an amazing job. From Castiel, Bobby, the ’67 Chevy Impala, John Winchester, Crowley, Lucifer, Ellen, Jo and more!!! It was great while it lasted this show will always hold a special place in my heart (as corny as that sounds). I learned a lot about monsters, demons and religious mythologies because of this show. This show truly impacted me and I will cherish it for years to come!

I have most of the seasons, but I have to buy the last few to add to my collection. This show touched many; Supernatural fans are die hard fans! Below I wanted to share a few pics of me wearing a Sam and Dean tee. I took them in 2015 when I went to Universal Studios in LA with my mom. I remember standing in line buying tickets and this young boy comes up to me and tells me he loves my shirt! That is how much these characters and this show means to people. I remember feeling happy that someone acknowledged by cool Supernatural tee lol. It was a great journey with this tv show! Supernatural’s legacy will live on forever! Till we meet again Carry on my Wayward Sons!!!
