    Atlantic really didn't put her in a bad position with the budget for K-12. It was around 5-7 million dollars which for someone who's never made a film before is an incredibly large amount of money (for reference, films like Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, Saw, and Paranormal Activity were actually made with far smaller budgets, all under 4 mil.) The issue with the budget is that a lot of the things she wanted to do, like rent out and film in a real castle in Hungary for a month, cost a LOT of money, and very quickly ate through her budget. I think had she cut some corners on things that were less important she could've used that budget far better than she actually ended up being able to and made a film that was better overall. I do think Atlantic will probably give her a smaller budget this time, though, because K-12 (as a film) didn't do very well. Streams, merch, touring, and the blow up of Crybaby are probably the only real reasons she's getting to do a second film, but I guess we will see on that.

    Lost & Found is such a pretty song. The garage band strings pain me though because I just know the song could've been so much more than it is if the strings sounded better. History definetly should've made the final tracklist in place of Notebook and I think Absorb could take the place of Brain & Heart easily.

    I really don’t want her to go back to Keenan. It’s really refreshing to finally be hearing something different from his work so I just wish they’d figure out something better in terms of security. Clearly whatever they’re using isn’t working. They should just go back to ole faithful and put everything on a flash drive at this point.

    From what I know, the vocal synthesizer Melanie has used on a lot of these tracks sometimes causes odd peaks depending on how they were mixed. Although I've not tested this myself so I can't be positive on that.

    A hq snippet ended up on dbree and it's definitely real :/. I'm really scared that when I go to bed I will wake up to even more leaks. I feel so bad for Melanie rn.

    She said recently the film/album aren't done which makes me think 2023 is far more realistic. I just can't see the film being approved (script wise), costumed, cast, filmed, edited, promoted, and released in the 14 months before 2023, and that's given she were to get the script in and approved as of today. If it is there would have to be cuts in the quality of the film and such. I do seriously hope mm4 gives us music videos. I think that ship has sailed for mm3 unfortunately (which is really sad since I think with the way she seems to be going sonically and thematically music videos would've been more visually interesting and creative than what a film would allow her).

    I was hoping she'd ditch it for mm3 with COVID but she's still doing it. No music videos for this era sadly except for film clips... Idk who keeps funding these films or why because as said here earlier the last film did incredibly poorly. If it made up it's funding it did so by touring, merchandise and streams from both k-12 and crybaby.

    I thought it was Cherubs 🥴 I don't think we even have a consistent name rn.

    Maybe this is just me but logically fire drill should be the opener and test me the closer, since test me is supposed to be the k-12 to mm3 bridge and fire drill was the k-12 credits. Something like Fire Drill Lost & Found Notebook History Glued Brain & Heart The Bakery Numbers Field Trip Copy Cat Test Me I know this is still kind of a mess, but there's some parts I think make sense. Like the bakery (working at a job melanie hated to fund her music) into numbers (melanie only being seen for streams or how much money she brings into the label) and Glued after the breakup song trio makes sense because it's about how too much or too little attachment can get you hurt. Some songs I really had to try to force in because they don't really fit, like copy cat doesn't really fit with the after school tracks, but overall I think this works kind of okay.

    Imagine if she went for cool tones. Though if she did that she'd have to rebrand herself 100% since she's so known for her pastels and I doubt she'd want to do that. I don't think it'll happen sadly since I think pastels are genuinely her preferred colors but it would be nice if she went more to a blue/green/purple spectrum for an era over pink/orange/yellow again.

    If you're talking about Michael Keenan with After School, their breakup was years ago (2017-2018 iirc).

    I'll believe that when we have an exact release date. Mel always delays.

    I doubt the film is already done, and based on how active she is on tiktok right now I don't think she's filming right now. It's possible the videos are pre-recorded but if she were filming she'd probably be too busy to post them at this frequency ^^ and how she gets publicity but it's only on sources no one above the age of 12 cares about like that one award thing where K-12 lost to Frozen II. ^^^^ Melanie is very bad about release dates. It's why I don't believe shit until there's an exact day and even then I hesitate to trust it.

    She does just not publicity anyone cares about because she markets mostly to the 12 year old side ?
