The infamous Chimney Starling lmao
This one was actually fairly short and pretty simple, but it was really important for a few reasons and it was fun to write the little interaction between Ezra and Songbird, and to get to highlight the subtle similarities between their situations.
TW for captivity whump, descriptions of injuries, whumpees talking, conditioning
This was actually a really hard flashback to write. It was really intense and emotional, and there was a lot of very slow building tension to get through. It was also one of the most important moments in Annie’s conditioning to really solidify her becoming Songbird and her relationship with Herschel. This flashback is probably the hardest moment between the two of them but it’s also the one that really made them what they are now.
TW for talk of being buried alive, heavy conditioning, kidnapping, starvation, exhaustion.

Page 6: Kelly Clarkson’s daytime talk show tied with Ellen DeGeneres’ long-running series in the year-end TV ratings battle – The Ellen DeGeneres Show lost advertisers and A-listers and audiences after former staffers came forward with stories of a toxic workplace while The Kelly Clarkson Show which was recently renewed through 2023 has become a household staple in its sophomore season and gaining viewers in daytime’s key demographic of women and ending 2020 on a season high – Ellen is putting on a good front but deep down she feels threatened by Kelly’s success and she’s done everything she can to prove that she’s changed but she still can’t win back her fans plus Ellen is convinced that Kelly is trying to steal her famous friends even going so far as to demand that if a celebrity agrees to appear on Ellen then they can’t go on Kelly; it’s one or the other from here on out
Page 7: Rihanna and A$AP Rocky celebrated their first Christmas together in her native Barbados where the couple went on a sunset cruise around the Caribbean isle with her loved ones – Christmas is a really important time for Rihanna and it’s not often that she gets to see her family and friends all at once and she wanted A$AP to be a part of it – he was a bit nervous meeting everyone but he was worrying over nothing because they all adore him – she’s really close with her family so it was important for him to get to know them before things begin to get serious

Page 8: Critics slammed Demi Moore’s new movie Songbird calling it a Michael Bay-produced travesty that exploits the coronavirus epidemic for thrills – the film takes place in the not-so-distant future during a COVID-23 outbreak with Demi playing a wealthy woman who sells immunity bands on the black market for a hefty price – Demi jumped at the chance to star in the movie; with its topical storyline she expected it to be a box-office hit and she’s disappointed that it’s flopped and is shocked at the backlash and she certainly never intended to hurt anyone’s feelings
* Hilaria Baldwin proudly showed off her post-baby body posting a photo of herself holding 3-month-old son Eduardo while wearing nothing but her bra and underwear but instead of being praised for her postpartum pic she was inundated with cruel comments after Amy Schumer reported the snap seemingly roasting Hilaria for setting unrealistic standards for new moms – while the comedian soon apologized and deleted the image it wasn’t long before she replaced it with several other shots and making fun of the controversy – there’s a fine line between being funny and being cruel and Amy overstepped the mark in Hilaria’s eyes

Produced by Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes, the 2020 sci-fi thriller is directed by Adam Mason (The Devil’s Chair, Broken) from a script he co-wrote with Simon Boyes. KJ Apa, Sofia Carson, Craig Robinson, Bradley Whitford, Peter Stormare, Alexandra Daddario, Paul Walter Hauser, and Demi Moore star.
Special features are listed below, where you’ll also find the trailer.
KJ Apa in Songbird (2020)
By 2024, the COVID-19 virus has mutated into COVID-23 and the world is in its fourth pandemic year. In the United States, people are required to take temperature checks on their cell phones while those infected with COVID-23 are taken from their homes against their will and forced into quarantine camps, also known as “Q-Zones” or concentration camps, where some fight back against the brutal restrictions. In these camps, the infected are left to die or forcibly get better.
Nico Price, a motorbike courier with immunity, due to the fact he was infected with the virus, is in a virtual relationship with Sara Garcia, a young artist living with her grandmother Lita whose lockdown prohibits them from physical contact. Nico works for Lester, who specializes in delivering packages to wealthy individuals. One of their biggest clients is the Griffins, Piper and William, whose daughter Emma has an auto-immune disorder. William is a former record executive having an affair with May, a singer who makes a living online selling covers of classic songs. May develops a bond with Michael Dozer, a disabled war veteran who works for Lester as a drone operator to keep track of their couriers.
One night, Lita begins to show symptoms of COVID-23 while the sanitation department, led by Emmett Harland, is forcing Sara’s neighbor Alice out of her apartment after getting infected. Harland warns Sara that their apartment building has seen a rise in infections. Sara informs Nico about Lita’s condition, leading Nico to spend the night by Sara’s apartment door. In the morning, Sara passes her temperature check, but Lita fails hers. Nico promises to keep Sara from being taken.
so apparently there’s already a film about covid-19 called songbird and honestly reading the Wikipedia article is just, like wow what the fuck, like apparently if you get covid-23 in the film you’ll probably be kidnapped against your will into a quarantine camp??? and its compared to a concentration camp? plus these idiots seem to love breaking social distancing rules because ‘’’‘romance’’’’, like how can you be so privileged that you write a film about something that is impacting us all and make so insensitive. plus apparently it was finished in lockdown as it had stopped due to lockdown starting
Also it was produced by Michael bay, ye know, the dude who made those live action transformers films that love doing the whole ‘aliens built the pyramids/our modern tech is derived from aliens/aliens participated in our own history’ thing for every part of history as well as having the ‘romeo & juliet’ law card thing
The most cheesiest Covid-19 related movie. I just saw was Songbird don’t get me wrong it was good, but it is so cheesy with the ⚠️SPOILER!!⚠️ Covid-23 (Not a real Covid! at least not yet) Like bruh. Ok I don’t mind that, at least Covid isn’t like Covid-23 (yet) (From the movie) Well I’m tired GOODNIGHT!!❤️
