Stranger Things Season One Review and Season Two Prediction

Stranger Things Season One Review and Season Two Prediction

This article may contain spoilers.

*Contains some spoilers*

In the small town of Hawkins, Indiana, in the year of 1983, nothing strange, nor unfortunate ever occurred. But, that all changed when a young boy was mysteriously abducted, and a cold and scared little girl was found in the woods by three adventurous lovable nerds. The boys, Dustin, Lucas, Will and Mike were playing a game one night in Mike’s garage, harmlessly enjoying their friendship, but when they were all riding back home on their bikes, Will’s situation was drastically altered.

With his mom not at home, and the strange feeling of something following him, Will decided to hide away from his anxiety in the shed out back. But, little did he know, that his life was about to change. Hours later, and Will now taken from thin air, his mom, Joyce began looking for answers. Along with Will’s mom searching for answers, his best friends decided that there was more to the story than a measly abduction… that something supernatural or strange was— perhaps —happening.

On one of the adventures of the three friends, searching for Will, they encountered a young girl, wearing ragged clothing, bruised and damaged, stranded in the woods nearby. Her name was Eleven. Eleven was a simple-minded girl, who didn’t talk much and liked ego waffles. As time went on, she opened up and her secrets became unveiled. Later on, Eleven was found to have seemingly similarly important information about where Will was, and how to find him.

So, with the new clues given by Eleven — now bonded through friendship with the other three boys — and with Will missing, Eleven, Dustin, Lucas, and Mike set out on an adventure that possibly could have led to dangerous settings, uncomfortable situations, and resolutions of torment.

With Will’s friends, Eleven, Will’s mom, and the sheriff of Hawkins, Indiana, the mystery of Will’s disappearance was resolved. The mystery behind Will’s abduction was founded to have an affiliation with the nearby science facility. This organization was conducting strange experiments that had ties to not only Will’s abduction, but to the happenings and personality of Eleven’s weird, but charming character.

At the end of the first season of Stranger Things, the seemingly wrap up resolve was not what it seemed, resulting in a cliffhanger that sets up the primase of the second season, coming out this Friday.

This is the link to the Season 2 trailer:

In this trailer, the scenes of the upcoming season seem to be darker, more sinister and filled with events of even more adventure and action than the first. Even as cliché as it is, I have to make a prediction of what may come from season two.

With the addition of the impending apocalyptic barring plotline, an even more insidious monster— even more so than the season one Demogorgon— seems to want to overtake the residents of not only the town of Hawkins, but of the whole population. The invasion of this demented alien seems to want to control the lives of its capturers, so that the world of the “Upside Down,” consumes the lives of everyone and everything. Hopefully with the skillful powers of Eleven, and the mischievous, yet playful tactics of the main characters, the impending future, that is shown by the trailer, will be halted— or risk the complete demolition, and supernatural destruction.

I'm Back With a "Few" Ideas

I've been away from The Odyssey for a full year. 

        I’ve been away from writing for The Odyssey for a full year now, and some interesting things happen when you tell yourself that you’re going to get back in the game. 

       At the top of the “interesting things that happens when you decide to take a time out from writing list” is an unbreakable, unpleasant, and unmerciful case of writer’s block. 

       You have so much to say, yet can’t force a single word into the keys. You go completely blank and day after day decide that tonight’s work will be tomorrow’s problem. 

       The problem with pushing things back a day, however, is that a the new day will never be guaranteed. Today’s tasks turned tomorrow’s problems might never be complete and the words in my head that I can’t force out might just live and die as nothing more than ideas. 

       I have nothing against ideas; but there has yet to be a single “good” idea that someone other than the creator didn’t know about. For an idea or a group of words to be worth anything, they have to be shared with others. 

       The time we’ve already been given may be the only time we ever receive. 

       I had no idea where to start for this first piece back so I saw it fitting to delve into something short and sweet and hopefully inspire others to start speaking and writing what’s on their minds as I attempt to get back into the game. 

       We all have something to say. Each of us has a voice and it’s now easier than ever to start sharing your ideas with the rest of the world. 

       Make sharing your voice a priority today. If you have something to say, say it. If you have something to share, share it. If you have something to teach, teach it. 

       Nobody cares about thoughts or ideas until they’re able to hear them. 

       F%$@ tomorrow, make it happen today. 

       I’m looking forward to being back on the Odyssey and sharing my voice on my own personal page. I have a ton of things to say and ideas to share and can't wait to share this journey with the people on this platform.

        If there’s anything you'd want to read about from me in the future, or have any feedback on anything I post, go ahead and let me know via email or social media. 

        I’m looking forward more than anything to hearing from the readers of this content and seeing how my ideas were shared. 

       You’ll be hearing more from me soon. In the meantime, go ahead and follow my Odyssey page and find me on social media!

       Until next time,

STORM3’s “Lost Another Chance” Boasts A Power-Pop and EDM Foundation Perfect For The Radio Airwaves and Dance Floors

Dutch Trio release debut U.S. single full of high NRG electropop

Emerging Dutch boy band STORM3 have an infectious synthpop number out now on their hands by way of their electropop gem and first U.S. single “Lost Another Chance.” Influenced by today’s electronic dance music sound, the single finds the lads and their harmonious vocals amongst some up-for-it high energy and dance floor drama. It’s the kind of stuff too that’s radio ready considering the continued influx of EDM on the FM airwaves.

STORM3 consists of members Devon Donovan, Koen van der Heide and Patrick la Lau who started the group back in 2015. Although originally written as a ballad, “Lost Another Chance” comes on strong and fierce in its current robust EDM pop incarnation courtesy of some pumping production work from Alpha-X and STORMS’s own van der Heide. The song’s theme is indeed a very universal one and all-around relatable topic. “Lost Another Chance” describes that feeling of insecurity and doubt when you start to like someone but do not know how to act or what to say or do. Even though you may have ‘lost another chance’ as their song proclaims, you can just as well become stronger from those experiences and emotions.

The unified vocal harmonies of Donovan, van der Heid and la Lau indeed elevate the three of them into a solid musical unit as STORM3 on their vibrant “Lost Another Chance” single. Courting catchy synth sounds and gorgeous singing, “Lost Another Chance” is a perfect shiny soundtrack to winter 2018 as we get ready to usher in springtime.
