Tonight I saw.....

...Shannon Doherty from 90210 and Charmed. She came into the Chocolate Bar and apparently was fairly snotty and according to our waitress "trying to throw her fame around." She was at the table next to us and kind of disappeared 5 minutes before the rest of her table left. We weren't sure if she was trying to make some sort of dramatic exit.

Bing Crosby says it in White Christmas, everyone has an angle. Preach it, Bing.

Santa lost a ho

Uncorked by The Christmas Jug Band

Santa used to go "ho ho ho"
Now he's only going "ho ho..." (Uh-oh!)
Where'd the other ho go? (I don't know)
Santa lost a ho

Dream on

Dream on by Robyn

I like how the video makes you question your assumptions. Pay attention to the lyrics as well.

matatizo kubwa

Ignore the fact that this was a very poor choice of photo for the cover and notice how the "best bodies" in the world belong to Lebron James and Gisele. If those two are all what we are supposed to look like then everyone is in trouble. But then another headline tells us how to dress for up to a size 16. Mixed messages. You also see it in magazines when they have stuff about working out and fashion spreads of coat hanger models and then ads about food or are all about indulging yourself.

Can I be you?

Like A Boy - Ciara

So when If I was a Boy by Beyonce came out some people didn't like it because they felt it was sexist. Ciara put out this song over a year ago, it was on the radio and I don't remember hearing anything negative about it.

Also, I need to find a way to look like and but mainly dance like Ciara. If someone could make that my Christmas present I'd greatly appreciate it.

Paper Planes remix for Slumdog Millionaire

I wanted to see this movie already but this makes me want to see it just a little bit more.

On the side of angels

"He tried always to be on the side of the angels. He didn't think the war in Iraq was going to happen, right up until it did. It broke his heart not because he gave a damn about Iraq but because he loved America and believed that the land and people of Lincoln and Twain would find a way to be right. He believed, like his immigrant forefathers, that America could be a beacon and a paradise.
He couldn't help thinking that all that money we were spending blowing up things and killing people so far away, making people the world over hate and fear us, would have been better spent on public education and libraries. It's hard to imagine that history won't prove him right, if it hasn't already."

Mark Vonnegut talking about his father Kurt Vonnegut in the introduction of Armageddon in Retrospect.


This video, which I saw on Phil and Lacy's blog................

(imagine I'm the ginger with the glasses and Abby is the brunette)
reminds me of this Aberfeldy video, which I actually like more even though it hurts my heart.

Musical drought

Many Christians use the term struggle when they're talking about their spiritual life. Well, I am experiencing a struggle in my musical life. I wish that sentence meant that frequently people broke out into harmonized melodies during my daily schedule but alas, it just means I nothing I listen to is that exciting anymore. I need something new and interesting and I can't seem to find it. My goal is to have music that makes everything else seem less important and/or something that makes a person just close their eyes and move their head around like Stevie Wonder because they're so engrossed in what they're hearing. Here's two songs I'm still excited to hear.

(Emile Hirsch and James McAvoy)
I want to be famous just so I can have some amazing photographer take pictures like these for Vanity Fair. Annie Leibovitz, Norma Jean Roy, Mark Seliger or Art Streiber, who recreated these famous scenes from Hitchcock films, all work frequently for this magazine and make people glamorous.

(Seth Rogan)
This picture is unrelated to the others in theme but was still in Vanity Fair and was taken by Norma Jean Roy. Now, is it safe to assume that if I become famous and have this photographer take fancy pictures that I could look like Jessica Biel?! Va-va-va-voom!

Good Luck Obama

I'm Hired!

So because I told lots of people I was looking for a job now a lot of people are asking about the job I got. Here's all the info in one grand place.

I'll be working for Covenant House Missouri which is in North City. " Covenant House is the largest privately funded nonprofit agency in North and Central America providing shelter and other services to homeless, runaway and throwaway youth. " They have a drop-in center for kids who aren't in school or just want to come by after school. That's where I'll be working, putting together health and nutrition classes, life skills classes, hanging out with kids and helping with whatever the Program Coordinator wants me to do since I am the Program Assistant. It's a real full time job from 10am to 6pm Monday - Friday. Does this mean I'm an adult?

Secret Crush

Jack Mcbrayer plays Kenneth Parcell on 30 Rock and I adore him.


I saw the movie Milk tonight and it was phenomenal. The story is about Harvey Milk who was the nation's first openly gay man to be elected to office when he became city supervisor in San Fransisco. The acting by Sean Penn, Emile Hirsch, James Franco, Diego Luna and Josh Brolin is all fantastic. I forget that they're playing real people who were/are much greater than these characters on screen.

One of the many stressful things of this movie was how, in the name of Christianity, people were terrible. It's just so sad to repeatedly see unloving things done in the name of God when He so highly values love and caring for others.

I want to dress like this. Maybe not yellow though.

I love Gap holiday commericials

I don't know if this is playing on TV because I havn't had it for a month but I think it's great!! Here's some more.


"(RED)WIRE is a digital music magazine with one very important difference. It not only changes the way music is discovered, it provides medicine for people who need it in Africa."

It's an online music magazine which has bigger and smaller name artists featured. The songs from the magazine also get put right into your Itunes. It's possible to get the first two issues for free but after that it's really cheap and half the money goes to AIDS initiatives. Seems pretty great. Here's the link to (Red)Wire.

Thanks to Marta for showing me.
