The Hat that Launched a Facebook Page

Ever since Princess Beatrice made her appearance with the ribbon, pretzel esque hat at William and Kate's Royal Wedding, she has been getting a great deal of attention (a great PR move) and she has been milking it up.

The designer of the hat is Philip Treacy and apparently he is Irish (my Irish ancestors cry with shame) he stands behind the design and he loves it. He thinks that it is elegant, a work of art and brings out her beauty..... whatever works for you.

Now in defense, I do love the design...just not as a hat. Or if it was going to be a hat, how about if was done differently. I'm not a designer but I love fashion (I just bought a cute new purse and scarf online on sale (only $12 dollars for both, go to AVON, they have great stuff).

Well the hat that launched the facebook page, is being put up for auction on ebay. I am not surprised. All the money will go to UNICEF to help children in crisis.

I wonder who will buy it and what will they do with it once they have it? I hope they wont wear it.

A Book Review: Beastly


I have read and watched many different versions of Beauty and the Beast. This is the first one that I have come across that isfrom the perspective of the Beast.


Title: Beastly
Author: Alex Finn
Mass Market Paperback: 310
Publisher: Harper Teen of HarperCollins Publishers
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Rating:

I love this book. There is nothing bad about the book, there really isn't. For me to say this especially since this is basically the story of Beauty and the Beast, but from the Beast point of view.

For a long time I had been wanting a book from the Beast's point of view (I was actually thinking of writing before I came across this book). This story is the tale of Beauty and the Beast, but it starts a little before he becomes the Beast, you see him go through his like as the Beast and than you see him when he meets his Beauty. I'm not going to give any details away.

The setting is modern day, he is in high school popular jock, has a great girlfriend, rich life, etc. Typical douche bag. A spell is cast on him, he gets all furry and looks like he has that rare wolf man disease, except he was a cross between bear, wolf, gorilla, dog, etc. Fangs, claws, the works.
He learns his lesson, falls in love, saves the one he loves, and it ends well. It's a great read.

No I have not seen the movie yet and just looking at the movie poster, I can tell they have Beast totally wrong, he didn't have these weird looking tattoos on him. Also from reviews that I have read about the movie from those that have read the book, they were not happy.

Well this book is definitely worth reading and I hope everyone enjoys it.

A Song Review: I'll Throw a Grenade at Ya!

I know Bruno Mars has been around for two almost three years now. I have heard a couple of his songs: The Lazy Song and Just the Way You Are. The one song though that I cannot stand is his new song "Grenade." I don't like it, it is annoying and ridiculous. Everyone thinks that the song is romantic, are they listening to the same song as I am? Here are the lyrics thanks to elyrics (I cannot guarantee accuracy):

"Grenade"

Easy come, easy go, that's just how you live
Oh, take, take, take it all but you never give
Should've known you was trouble from the first kiss
Had your eyes wide open, why were they open?

Gave you all I had and you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, you did
To give me all your love is all I ever asked
'Cause what you don't understand is

I'd catch a grenade for ya
Throw my hand on a blade for ya
I'd jump in front of a train for ya
You know I'd do anything for ya

I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes, I would die for you, baby
But you won't do the same

No, no, no, no

Black, black, black and blue, beat me 'til I'm numb
Tell the devil I said, hey, when you get back to where you're from
Mad women, bad women, that's just what you are, yeah
You'll smile in my face then rip the brakes out my car


Gave you all I had and you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, yes, you did
To give me all your love is all I ever asked
'Cause what you don't understand is

I'd catch a grenade for ya
Throw my hand on a blade for ya
I'd jump in front of a train for ya
You know I'd do anything for ya

I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes, I would die for ya, baby
But you won't do the same

If my body was on fire
Ooh, you'd watch me burn down in flames
You said you loved me, you're a liar
'Cause you never, ever, ever did, baby

But darling, I'd still catch a grenade for ya
Throw my hand on a blade for ya
I'd jump in front of a train for ya
You know I'd do anything for ya

I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes, I would die for you, baby
But you won't do the same

No, you won't do the same
You wouldn't do the same
Ooh, you never do the same
No, no, no, no


If you were able to make it through reading the whole song I congratulate you. I could not, for it is already in my head. So much so that I was humming it during both of my classes today. My boyfriend and I cannot stand this song, seriously I throw my hand on a blade for ya/ I'd jump in front of a train for ya.....

Hey, I like back massages and chocolates. Even better than that, take me shopping. You really don't have to throw you hand on a blade for me, its not like the blade is going to jump out at me and scream "I'm going to cut you!"

It takes a lot for me to be turned off from a an artist, well he has lost a potential fan unless he makes up for it by writing a better song. Yes, I do not like him or this song. Grenade=terrible.

Here is the Orginal Video of the song:

Here is a Parody by The Key of Awesome... I enjoyed this one. They do some great parodies!

I Took the Red Pill...


The Matrix, the awesome movie that gave us the option to take the blue pill or the red pill.

I always think about this movie every time I eat anything that tastes like chicken, because they make a good point how come food tastes something else. I myself have tasted Gator (more about that later) and it does taste like chicken, but it has a more rubbery texture to it.

Warning I will go totally geeky about a movie that is totally not based in fact (that we know of) and I am just doing this for the heck of it, to expand my mind, and get a story idea for the many novels I plan to write and eventually will publish.

I wonder at times about the world we live in, the whole idea that our reality is being controlled by a bunch of machines who are hungry for energy and we humans are being harvested for energy(the idea of this still makes my brain freeze up like a computer, maybe there is a reason for that happening.... anyway...). The one thing about the movie that really intrigues more than anything is when the movie mentions deja vu.

Deja vu in the matrix is a glitch, it happens when they change something in it. I'm curious about this because it happens so often to me, so I got to wonder say we are living in the matrix what is changing and why?

Another thought before we continue with the matrix.....

I had mentioned a while back about the law of attraction. The whole idea about the law of attraction is that when you think/feel good/bad thoughts you are sending positive or negative ways depending upon your feelings and thoughts. And the waves that come back to you will reflect the feelings or thoughts you sent out.

Now we are fed many realities by all kinds media: TV, books, magazines, music, computers, etc. When we accept a reality that reality becomes true from our point of view. So maybe if The Matrix did exist in machine form it would not be giving us a unified reality but a reality which fits to each persons interpretation. So that way we would not rebel or "find out" about the truth... the truth about the Matrix.

Remember in the movie it was said that humans could not accept a paradise, a place of perfection and bliss. That I can definitely see, I think we would stagnate if we didn't have conflict and to be honest if we did have a paradise I could see eventually one person going crazy and start destroying everything in sight.

Hence why in society there is always the majority and the minority. As a society, this will always be the way of things, we are unable to be completely unified or we go crazy. Now eventually how the minority act/feel usually become the new popular, the new norm (think of the 60's, 70's, and anything that used to be unpopular but now is the "shiz"). And the cycle of majority and minority continue.

To get back to deja vu. If a person has deja vu a lot and they live within the matrix... What is the reason for this to be happening constantly?

Here is an example of a potential scenario:
He/she has deja vu frequently. This person works hard in life, has ambition, and is always dreaming of more things he/she can do. They want to be able to do and try everything in life, to them there are no limits. This person is always trying new things.As a result they are "attracting" to them more opportunities to expand and grow as an individual. Whether it be job opportunities, more money, etc.  This person is constantly changing to try to make themselves better. 

Now how can we explain all the deja vu moments using matrix logic. As we stated above deja vu happens when there has been a change in the matrix. Then we combine that with the idea that the matrix conforms to the reality that we see (law of attraction) in our minds. If our reality is constantly changing, if the person is constantly improving, they are constantly changing. Therefore the matrix has to keep up with them and as result they experience more deja vu.

In the movie it only presented a time frame and the reality of that time frame it did not address was the personal level of each individuals reality.

Maybe the law of attraction and the matrix somehow work together.

Hope that gets you thinking.
