A Day in the Life of Stella

stellafeat

[vimeo id=”8327538″ width=”600″ height=”350″] What a life!  When I die I want to go back in time and come back as Stella. I figure if reincarnation is possible then time travel must be too. This is such a great video!  I’d love to make something like that for a day in the life of Bailey or Pixel.  Get a photo of them running out of their crate in the morning and legging it to the living room to see if Spencer left any food behind, lazing on the footstool in the sun, going for a walk, eating some poop, giving ...

TV Review: The Big C

bigcfeat

When I first heard about Showtime’s new show The Big C last year, I wasn’t sure what to expect.  All I knew was that it was a show about Cancer, it sounded like a Reality show that would hit way too close to home for me.  Cancer? Really? Do they have to go there? Having lost so many people I love to Cancer, I couldn’t stand the thought of it being made light of at all.  I had images in my head of these people being exploited for money, possibly doing this Reality TV show to make money to leave ...

Switched at Birth – Watch it!

switchedfeat

Below is a trailer for a new ABC Family show called Switched at Birth.  It is still in its first season but I’m crazy insane over it already.  I won’t get into who is in it or what it’s about because if you clicked play on the video you already know all that.  So I’m just going to tell you it’s awesome and if you haven’t been watching it already, please do so.. you won’t regret it! For those of you who don’t know how to use Bit Torrent or don’t live in North America where you can get easy ... Read More »

The 19th Wife: Book Review

sdb10187

The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff My rating: 2 of 5 stars I found this book to be too all over the place for my liking. It says it’s all fiction but parts of it rest heavily on historical facts. To me, it felt like a decent fiction story stuck in between a lot of historical documents. The story of Jordan and his mother didn’t have enough substance to stand on its own, but the historical aspects have already been done in other books. I seems like the author just decided to throw them both together and hope they’d fill ... Read More »

This is Some Politics I Can Get Behind!

the-wire1.jpg

A few years ago I plowed through the entire series of The Wire and absolutely loved it.  I tried to get my husband to watch it with me but he can be quite difficult when it comes to trying to nail him down to get him to watch a show.  There are very few that can capture and keep hold of his attention. It wasn’t until we were on holiday last year that his father and stepmom told him that they watched it and loved it that he’d actually consider giving it a go. Even then, it still took me ...

Even Brando Liked Some Wang

betterfeat

I saw a video today that I really liked.  It’s part of the It Gets Better movement, which is a collection of messages from people all over the world, including celebrities, aimed at gay teenagers who suffer at the hands of bullies. I love this video because it’s funny, it’s cool and it has a great message.  I also love it because at the end she takes the time to make the point that it’s not just gay teens who get bullied, something I think a lot of people forget.  Kids get bullied because they are too fat, too skinny, ...

My Television Addiction

laptopfeat

I am the first to admit that I have a serious television addiction.  I make myself feel better by thinking things like hey, at least I don’t smoke crack! It works pretty well. People often ask how I find the time to watch all the shows I do.  It’s pretty easy really… Firstly, I download every show I watch.  With the exception of the movie channels, Discovery and National Geographic I never watch anything on our real time TV.  It all gets watched on my laptop or via USB on the TV. The upside to downloading everything is that I ... Read More »

Valentine’s Day at Bollywood

bollywoodfeat

This year my husband and I decided to do something different for Valentine’s Day.  Normally we don’t really do much, just hang out and make a nice dinner, to go a movie or go out for something to eat.  This year I saw that a Bollywood show was coming to the Luxor Theater in Rotterdam and I really thought it might be fun.  Xander agreed to go along but I think he wasn’t quite sure of it. So come Valentine’s Day we got gussied up a little and headed off to the theater to see what was waiting for us. ... Read More »

30 days of Truth: Day 13

30daysfeat13

Ok or originally this said “Write a letter”, I can’t be arsed to do that.  If I write about some famous artist here, they will never read it, and if they did I’d probably drop dead and you’d never hear from me again.  So I’m just going to answer the question. The artist who has gotten me through some tough ass days is P!NK, of course!  It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of hers, and she is great when you need some “FUCK YOU!” music. When I was blue, hating people, feeling alone and like I couldn’t cope, ... Read More »

Rotterdam Film Festival: Skarsgard In The Flesh!

filmfestival11feat

Oh, sorry no… not that one.  It was this one!  Here’s what happened. The other day my friend Genevieve asked if I wanted to get together in town today and maybe see a movie.  When we realized that all the theaters in town aren’t showing regular films because of the Rotterdam International Film Festival, she asked if I wanted to do that instead.  I was all for it as I’d gone last year and really enjoyed it. We both sort of forgot about it and today decided last minute to go have some lunch and check out one of the ... Read More »

30 Days of Truth: Day 7

30daysfeat7

Shit, this is an easy one… my husband.  I’ve spoken on here loads of times about how wonderful he is and all the things I love about him. To list it all again would just be repeating myself, although I’m sure he wouldn’t mind… he really digs the compliments and ego stroking. He knows he is what I live for and how important he is to me, so do all the other important people in my life.  There are a lot of people who make my life worth living… my friends and my family mostly, they mean the world to ...
