Week 2 of "The Bachelorette" Who Let the Dogs Out?

There were dogs in more way than one this episode

As the time goes on, things only get more heated. The drama within the guy's increases, causing the audience to question whether or not they should put certain people with Rachel. Last night had everyone on edge as a cat known as Lexi spilled from DeMario’s bag of secrets. But besides that, there were some memorable moments from this week to highlight.

Going black and never going back

The two had a good heart to heart about his confidence upon their first meeting. Their date seemed to have gone well as Dean takes her heart and takes home a rose.

Palm Springs with Peter

Rachel takes Peter on a one on one with a bit of a surprise: her dog Copper. The three of them board a plane and go to Palm Springs where they get some well-earned rest and relaxation. What better way to relax than at a doggy and me spa! The three go to a dog spa where not only the dogs can get some r&r, but so can Rachel and Peter. The day with Copper continues, as the family of three goes to a nice candlelit dinner. Rachel feels an amazing chemical attraction that goes beyond the fact they both have a gap in their front teeth. She saw something in Peter, which gave him a rose.

They’re playing Basketball

Tie up your Jordan’s because this date is all about teamwork. They took their time to practice, messing around on the court. DeMario made sure to show Rachel he was an all-star, dunking any chance he got. That is until NBA legend Kareem Abdul Jabar comes out as a coach. He comes to give advice to the boys and to Rachel as well about love’s correlation to basketball.

After an interesting practice, a 5 on 5 game was played to see who would come out on top. There was effort but as Rachel said: “There are more air balls than shots.” Despite that, it was a good effort by all the men.

DeMario the D-O-G-G

Not as cool or as smooth as Snoop Dogg himself. There were two dogs in today’s episodes when the girlfriend of a previous past comes back to haunt not only Rachel but also everyone else in the house. It turns out that DeMario had a secret relationship with Lexie, who was not afraid to let Rachel know the truth. Just when we all thought DeMario was a good contender, his lies got exposed. I don’t think anyone saw that coming.

Bryan the smooth operator (and chiropractor)

After coming back to the house for another rose ceremony and to spend time with the other men, Bryan makes no effort to sweep her away for some one on one time. Being good with his hands, he pulls out his skills as a chiropractor to keep her calm and relaxed.

DeMario making a return

Leaving us with a cliffhanger, DeMario comes back, pleading to security so he can speak with Rachel. Her time with Fred gets interrupted, bringing out Chris Harrison from the woodworks long before the rose ceremony.

The art of the WHAAABOOOOM

Of course, the episode couldn’t end without learning the making of a perfect whaboom.

“Three A’s. Four O’s. Nothing more, nothing less”

What do you think is going to happen when Rachel goes to talk with DeMario? Will DeMario turn psycho? Comment below what you think?

11 Mashups PTX Should Work On ASAP

New Rules x Are You That Somebody was great, but what about these ideas?

So, famed acapella group Pentatonix released their sixth and latest album called PTX Presents: Top Pop, Vol. I on Friday and the 13th. Spooky, but the album is scary impressive (as always), so that makes sense.

My more escalated excitement than usual comes from the fact that PTX decided to go back to pop music covers. Trust me, I liked "Can't Sleep Love" more than any other fan, but I missed their covers. They never failed to blow me away. There is something to be said about a group of people breaking down a song, figuring out how to make the cover stand out, translating it so that it fits the human voice, actually producing it, and putting it out there in the world. I STILL go back to the PTX Vol. 1 album because of how much it impresses me.

The only critique I have with this newest album is the fact that every song came out in the last three years. Every song you have heard on the radio at least a thousand times, save for "Are You That Somebody?" by Aaliyah that they mash up with "New Rules".

Speaking of mashups, those are always my favorite when it comes to PTX. This album, they made two: New Rules/Are You That Somebody, and Despacito/Shape of You. Solid choices aside, PTX can do better. Obviously, mashups sound harder to create because you have to find enough similarities to a song that they would sound great if you played them at nearly the exact time. Let me help you, PTX. I conjured up a few ideas for mashups. I am awful at making music, but I know you guys are great at it. So, hear me out. These may have already been done, but some are ready to finally go out into the world.

1. "Havana" by Camila Cabello/Smooth by Rob Santana


Apparently, this one already got all mashed up, although Havana can be fused with literally any song.

2. "Americano" by Lady Gaga/"Boots" by Kesha

Two songs about women about the power of falling in love while some mesmerizing guitar playings in the background. Plus, I feel the aesthetics of each song are similar. Just slow down Boots a little bit. Please. This would sound AMAZING.

3. "Two Princes" by Spin Doctors/"Semi Charmed Life" by Third Eye Blind


Again, already mashed, but this is just a rough draft. Let's perfect this bad boy.

4. "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" by Jet/ "Walk Like An Egyptian" by The Bangles


Some YouTube user beat me to this TEN YEARS AGO. It sounds great, so no complaints.

5. "Can I Have This Dance" by Francis the Lights feat. Chance the Rapper/"In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel


They both start off with slow, and build up slowly toward the refrain. Francis and the Lights seems to emanate some 80s ambience, so this is definitely doable. The top comment in the above music video even says it sounds like a Phil Collins song.

6. "1, 2 Step" by Ciara/"Love Game" by Lady Gaga


Lady Gaga returns paired with a throwback I feel ashamed to forget. Sing Love Game's refrain while 1, 2 Step's hook plays. MAKE. IT. HAPPEN.

7. "Cross My Heart" by Marianas Trench/"Accidentally in Love" by Counting Crows


I told my friends this for year by screaming out the lyrics to Accidentally in Love whenever this song comes on (which happens more often than I would prefer), but the resemblance is uncanny. The guitar riff introduction is a NEAR REPLICA. How has nothing come of this yet?

8. "1999" by Prince/"Not That Kinda Girl" by Fifth Harmony feat. Missy Elliot

Think about how energetic this would sound. Sure, their BPM does not match with 1999 at 115 beats and Not That Kinda Girl at 119, but nothing a little music editing can solve, right? Please, I want to know.

9. "New Romantics" by Taylor Swift/I "Really Like You" by Carly Rae Jepsen


Well look, user Neko Jinny beat you, PTX. This came out this month THIS YEAR. Simple pitch shifting showcases how identical these 80s inspired songs sound.

10. "Work This Body" by Walk the Moon/"Jai Ho" by A.R. Rahman and The Pussycat Dolls


A classic banger and a make you sweat jam. Make me feel emotional while working out, PTX. Come on. Their BPM is only two beats apart!

Come to think of it, where are any Jai Ho mashups?

11. "Luck" by American Authors/"Marry You" by Bruno Mars


This may be a bit of a stretch and require more manipulation, but both songs are the kind you sing with your friend during a long car rides. I also think lyrically, the story this fused pair would tell intrigues me. He makes his own luck so he is going to marry this girl. Nice.

4 Reasons Costuming Is One of the Most Important Jobs In Theatre

Why I have a newfound respect for the people who make actors look good.
783

I've been involved in theatre for several years, and never once did it cross my mind to try out anything involving costuming or wardrobe. This is essentially taking care of all the costumes and anything that gets worn by an actor. After being put on the wardrobe crew for Longwood's production of The Heidi Chronicles, I can honestly say I have a newfound respect for everything a wardrobe crew does. Here's why:

1. The hours are insane.

Because they have to check in every costume piece used during the show, the wardrobe crew has to arrive an hour before everyone else shows up for performances. We have to grab laundry from the previous night, check in all pieces, make sure all of our quick changes are ready to go, and then we wait. After the show, if there are alterations to be made, the wardrobe crew is liable to stay back several hours. One show required the crew to stay back until 2 am to make sure everything was ready to go. It's a crazy amount of hours and requires an incredible amount of dedication, commitment, and coffee to get through.

2. They're tasked with making the actors look amazing.

As an actor, I can only speak for myself when I say this is no easy task: I tend to walk into the green room looking like a flaming garbage can before each performance. Wardrobe does an amazing job of making sure actors look the best that they possibly can, especially in terms of makeup, hair, and costuming. The wardrobe crew is the difference between actors looking like a big ol' mess or looking like a Broadway-caliber cast.

3. They have to make costume alterations on the fly.

One of the most stressful aspects of working on a wardrobe crew is hearing those four fateful words, "my costume is broken." Whether that's a broken zipper, a ripped-off button, or a lost hat (all things we've dealt with during Heidi), it's Threat Level Midnight whenever something inevitably goes wrong. Sometimes it's necessary to restitch something within minutes of it breaking so that the piece can go on stage with its respective actor. It's a lot.

4. Quick changes. Just... quick changes.

If you've ever acted in a play that requires multiple costumes, you know something about Satan's gift to actors, i.e. quick changes. In Heidi, every scene requires a different costume for every character, and some characters are in scenes back-to-back. During the transitions from scene to scene, the wardrobe crew has at most a minute and a half to get actors out of costume and into their new one before the next scene starts. It's a stressful as it sounds. Wardrobe people are absolute gods for getting it perfect every single performance.


In all, wardrobing is an extremely rewarding experience that I'm very glad I got into. From here on out, I will always have the utmost respect for these gods and goddesses who make actors look their best.
