Hey Hey Heroes, Travelers and Wandering NPCs! I know it’s not Friday… well, maybe it is somewhere in the world… maybe? *awkward laugh* I’ve been kind of AWOL with this old blog for the past few months, forgive me, I’ve been trying to get my life together, but I’m back… kind of. It’s gonna take me a bit to get everything back up and running (I’m a bit rusty), but I recently watched an animated show that I just had to write about! So, while the blogging spirit is flowing through me, I figured I’d best get this post out, before I get distracted again… This week’s Fangirl Moment post will be about… *Drumroll* Voltron: Legendary Defender!
Team Voltron (Front L-R) Pidge, Shiro ❤ , Keith (Back L-R) Hunk, Coran, Allura, and my boy LANCE KYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *ahem* I mean Lance
Yeah, I got sucked into the Voltron fandom…. I mean, I’d seen a few reruns of the 80’s series when I was a kid, but I never really got into it. Giant robots and explosions weren’t my thing… okay, Power Rangers aside… So, when the reboot was announced I just didn’t pay it much mind. But, after seeing tons of fan art and hearing countless people praise the series, I figured why not give it a try… I’m lying, I finished watching Stranger Things 2 and I needed something to watch while I crocheted and Voltron seemed like the perfect background noise. I never dreamed I’d make it through the first episode, let alone binge all four seasons in the span of a week, but here we are and I NEED MORE!!! So, you guys get to listen to my rampant fangirl ramblings about Voltron! Yay!

It’s gonna get a little weird, gonna get a little wild this Fangirl Friday, because this week I’m covering an animated series that is anything but normal… I’m talkin’ rainbows, I’m talkin’ puppies, for this week’s Fangirl Moment post I wanted to write about the American animated series Star vs. the Forces of Evil!
Some of you should recognize Star as the topic that didn’t win last week’s Twitter poll, but I absolutely adore this show, so I figured why not cover it this week instead! Since the second season wrapped up a few months ago I am seriously suffering from Star withdrawal… so I hope this post will hold me over until the season 3 premiere later this Summer…

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m covering a one of my favorite animated films. I’m talking about the critically acclaimed 2001 animated film, Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi).
So what brought on this post? Well I recently watched the film again this past weekend and all of the memories just came flowing back! I just had to write about… it would be criminal not to have a post about this amazing film on my blog!

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I am covering a cartoon series that is…truly, truly, truly OUTRAGEOUS! Yup, that’s right I’m covering the 80’s animated show, Jem and the Holograms! So put on your legwarmers, grab your pink eye shadow and get ready for a glam rock experience you won’t soon forget! We’re taking a trip back to a simpler time, where most conflicts could be resolved with…musical battles?
I am definitely not an 80’s kid, so I didn’t grow up with the series, I only recently became acquainted with it, so rest assured, this is not a nostalgia fueled post. This show is definitely a product of the 80’s, so I’ll admit that some aspects of this show can seem pretty cheesy to a modern audience… But, for some reason as ridiculous as this show is, it still manages to suck you in. Maybe its the catchy songs, or maybe it’s the over the top glam fashion that permanently burns itself into your retina…
*We will not speak of that thing they called a movie…that was a tragedy and I will have none of that here…*

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m covering an American cartoon series, Steven Universe. I absolutely adored this series from the first episode and every episode since then reminds me just how awesome of a series this is! If you haven’t heard about Steven Universe, you are missing out! This show has it all, and it is refreshingly progressive for a children’s show covering a wide range of topics such as; grief, same sex relationships, and death to name a few.
The show was created by Rebecca Sugar, the former storyboard artist another Cartoon Network animated series, Adventure Time. She was also the storyboard artist 2012 computer animated feature film, Hotel Transylvania. On top of all of that she also produces the songs for the show…which are awesome!!!

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m gonna hit you guys in the gut with a French animated film that showed up on my Netflix homepage…Have you ever watched something so strange and confusing that you couldn’t help but fall in love with it’s awkwardness? Well that’s what happened when I first watched the animated film, Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart. It was a surreal musical experience that I simply won’t soon forget, and I’ll admit I teared up at the end too.
Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart (La Mécanique du cœur) is a 2014 animated film, which follows a young man, Jack (voiced by Mathias Malzieu) who was born on the coldest day of the year. Because of this he was born with a frozen heart, so a local midwife/witch replaced his dead heart with a small cuckoo-clock. While the procedure did save his life the midwife, Madeleine, warns young Jack there are three rules that he must obey in order to ensure the longevity of his artificial heart.
