If You Had to Choose a Superpower, What Would It Be?

If You Had to Choose a Superpower, What Would It Be?

The answer is obvious, duh?

What super power would I choose? Easy question, allow me to explain.

Intangibility; the underdog of all superpowers, trivialized and forgotten about, but exponentially more valuable than all the rest. This mutant power allows one to pass through solid form without harm to oneself. Essentially, the ability to defy the laws of physics and gravity at will. This power grants access to every closed door, locked gate and the secrets that lay behind them. How did the majority of comic creators and cartoon designers forget about this superpower? One can only guess. But this is by far one of the most superior powers to exist.

Every human can only count the number of times they’ve locked themselves out of a car or house until they feel pathetic. Next time your key decides to play a sick joke on you, phase through the metal, wood or steel that stands in your way through absolute control of molecular density. Are you late for a meeting on the first floor and the only elevator available has a thirty-five-minute wait? Just plummet through the floor, with grace and class.

Ever need to avoid an ex but have limited hiding options?

Intangibility allows you to literally hide in a wall, a tree trunk or a refrigerator evading inevitable awkward small talk and/ or humiliation.

Not only is this the most convenient power to have, but it ensures protection. Are you locked in a shed fifty miles deep in a tropical rainforest? Phase through the walls and emerge as an absolute badass. Stuck in a bathroom with a dead phone and no windows? Transcend through the tile.

Let’s also not forget, it’s almost impossible to get hurt. No more bruises from walking into glass doors, paper cuts, and of course, the most gruesome of them all; the toe stub. Your big toe will forever be indebted to you; after securing the power of intangibility your foot will glide through your bedpost. Unfortunately for every other being, they are imposed with the laws of physics limiting their movement and flexibility.

Sure, maybe Superman can fly, but what happens if he flies into a building? SPLAT is the answer. Spiderman can use his spidey-senses to combat all obstacles thrown at him. But what could Shadowcat do? She manipulates space to WALK through the obstacles, almost like it is too easy.

Leave the other superpowers to the amateurs, and indulge yourself with intangibility like I would.

Lil Yachty's 'Lil Boat 2' May Not Be Enough To Keep Him Afloat

Here's what you need to know about "Lil Boat 2."

On March 9, Lil Yachty dropped his newest album, “Lil Boat 2.” The album consists of 17 songs, most of which were probably better off not being on the album and seriously failed to impress me, despite its early success on iTunes.

In all of the reviews I have ever written, I normally organize it song-by-song, giving feedback to each track. This time, however, I think I can save all of us time on this article by just being completely honest about Lil Yachty’s “Lil Boat 2.”

Most of the songs from 1-10 on the tracklist are NOT worth listening to.

Other than those three, every other song from the top ten songs on the tracklist were absolute garbage.

The beats to the songs weren’t that bad but, overall, it just sounded like Lil Yachty and his features were WAY too high to be in the studio.

Yachty’s flows, bars and rhyme schemes were ALL weak throughout the entire album, and if it weren’t for the final six songs on “Lil Boat 2,” this review would be nothing but bashing Lil Yachty.

From the 12th track on the album, "MICKEY" (ft. Offset, Lil Baby) the album runs through much more smoothly, regardless of how basic those last couple of songs are.

I imagine Lil Yachty’s fanbase consists mostly of teenagers who eat Tide for Internet views and anybody who knows nothing about what a real rapper is.

Seriously. I cannot stress how elementary this album is. If you’re looking for new rap music to listen to, check out Tory Lanez’s album, “MEMORIES DON’T DIE,” or Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino II.”

Both of those albums are so much better than “Lil Boat 2” that they make Yachty look like an amateur — which he is.

Final Score: 5.8/10

Did Draco Malfoy Ever Get The Clout He Deserved?

Yes, he was literally the worst for a majority of the series. But does this one moment make up for it all?

The new trailer for the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” series just dropped and I have a LOT of feelings. Mainly:

With the release of this new trailer, the only natural thing to do is to binge watch the "Harry Potter" series. Now, if you don’t know about "Harry Potter" series, I’m going to assume that you were born literally minutes ago. For those of you who do know what I’m talking about, let’s chat.

Throughout the series, we see some pretty rotten witches, wizards and muggles. The worst being Bellatrix LeStrange, in my opinion.

*Side note: Voldemort killed meticulously and with his own “reasoning” that supported his actions. Bellatrix killed for sport. No reason was necessary to support her choices. Regardless of who I thought was worse, it doesn’t change the fact that they were both 100% assholes.*

Throughout the movie, and even more so throughout the book, we are able to see slight character arcs for a majority of these lesser-evil villains, such as Petunia Dursley, Narcissa Malloy, Snape, and Draco Malfoy.

After Snape, Draco had one of the biggest character arcs in the series. He saved Harry and, ultimately, through his actions, gave Harry one last chance to defeat Voldemort. How? Well, Pottermore explains it best, but to put it simply, he refused to give Harry, Ron, and Hermione up to Bellatrix and the Snatchers.

This moment is so pivotal and apparent in the books, yet on screen, while it’s still a huge moment, it still gets downplayed. The weight of the moment isn’t truly felt and could be taken as more of a mistake on Malfoy’s part. That moment, if not understood correctly, could change many viewers' opinions about Draco's transformation from elitist, bigot, selfish snob to a (slightly) unknowingly ignorant, scared, defeated teen.

Damnit, J.K. Rowling, you’ve done it again. Even after all these years, somehow I still always seem to find something new.

Now let’s talk about how the new movie will allow the Ministry to apparate onto Hogwarts?!
