Melanie Martinez

I'm referring to Michael Keenan (total douchebag and the Vanilla Ice of music producers). They broke up like a year and a half ago but have occasional one night stands where she ironically crashes at his house for days at a time. I'm guessing that's part of the deal as he's the one overproducing and engineering this train wreck for free in his home studio. She didn't get an advance for this record to go to an LA studio which is why she didn't have an arbitrary time limit from Atlantic Records to pump this junk out (FOUR YEARS!!!!). Melanie and all of her pastel posse are sex addicted weirdos. 

 

can we get some sources, mayhaps?

Shit just keeps getting worse. "I will rip your fucking face apart" wtf? The same girl who fucks her producer ex-boyfriend for free studio time btw. LUL

 

it's mediocre, sounds like any song off the crybaby album. i hoped she'd move on to a new era or a new protagonist at least, the whole adult baby shtick is getting old and you can only do so much w it. she's been dragging it out for like what, 5 years? i'd consider watching the movie though, the cinematography seems nice and i like the pastel theme lol

The movie seems well made and shot, but the terrible acting and nonsensical plot really drags it down

Yeah, you can start here.

The audio for the k-12 trailer was so weird. It was hard to hear what the characters, specifically Melanie, were saying. It was as if they were whispering the whole time.

IS SHE FORREAL WITH THAT SCRIPT AND ACTING

like 98% of this movie is """""aesthetic"""" (albeit a shitty one) and everything else is lackluster or just straight garbage. it looks like a pastel tim burton and the synopsis sounds like a middle schooler came up with this idea.

Looks like pastel Mathilda/Sucker Punch. I just about cried when I saw the horrible special effects.

If EA(Emilie Autumn)had the budget at the time she could have done way better 

for comparison her FLAG vid was made with little budget and that was the ONLY vid she did during her long career as a musician 

Anyway If this is what Mel has to offer then why bother even checking it out. A pastel version of Sucker punch probably mixed with the craft mixed with scream queen/ New Heather Humor 

Who is this movie for besides her fans? Teens?

The names for the songs are all out. One in particular is called, 'Teacher's Pet' why do I feel like it's going to be pulled off the teacher crush community on Tumblr and have it be about Crybaby liking her teacher? My second idea/theory is about her being a good student, but gets bullied for it, then falls into peer pressure and smokes weed.

To me, the K-12 thing looks like an attempt to emulate Wes Anderson with edge.

you hit the nail on the head I was wondering what the album cover look like! It looks like the movie poster for The Grand Budapest Hotel

the poster for reference if you haven’t seen it

Her snippets are getting less and less views it seems I guess people are losing interest because honestly they all sound like crybaby outtakes 

also this is the synopsis to the movie 

7ADBA0F7-25E0-46CD-98DA-B96D8EF2DBAD.jpeg

 

Honestly, the concept seems good because you're aiming this at middle schoolers to high schoolers, they love shit like this.

But watch the execution be so horrid, like I'm sure an amateur artist making a comic can execute this way better than she will. 

it's mediocre, sounds like any song off the crybaby album. i hoped she'd move on to a new era or a new protagonist at least, the whole adult baby shtick is getting old and you can only do so much w it. she's been dragging it out for like what, 5 years? i'd consider watching the movie though, the cinematography seems nice and i like the pastel theme lol

 

Honestly, she doesn't even need a new protag if she was creative enough. All she needs to do is write better lyrics, and change the tone from how it was in crybaby.

Only thing I'm really gonna give is some of the aethestics are pretty nice looking IMO, I'm still keeping my expectations pretty low after seeing that movie description and considering this is Melanie Martinez :haiplz:

All those songs that were released awhile ago, like 99 cent store, Sch!zo, Haunted, and Drama Club I wonder what those really were then if they weren't album leaks way back? Crybaby cuts? I was sure maybe Drama Club was gonna end up on K-12 since it seems like it would've made sense, or she actually scrapped another album idea prior.
