So Makeup is really to do what now?

In the above photo, which one is male and which one is female?



Got-ya! They are the same person!

You Are Not SO Smart gives us a lesson on the truth about makeup.

The Misconception: Makeup serves no deeper purpose than to enhance culturally-defined concepts of beauty.

The Truth: Makeup has a deeper value; it enhances the contrast of the human face, allowing for faster recognition of gender.

Read the full article, it's rather interesting.

40th Anniversary of Toni Morrison's first novel The Bluest Eye

0 comments
"And fantasy it was, for we were not strong, only aggressive; we were not free, merely licensed; we were not compassionate, we were polite; not good, but well behaved. We courted death in order to call ourselves brave, and hid like thieves from life. We substituted good grammar for intellect; we switched habits to simulate maturity; we rearranged lies and called it truth, seeing in the new pattern of an old idea the Revelation and the Word."

This is a passage from The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison (page 163).

This paragraph is like a poem to me... it's lyrical and poignant. I love those words so much.

And the book... well it's just one of the most brilliant novels I've ever read.

By the way, this year marks the 40th anniversary of Toni Morrison's first novel, The Bluest Eye.

Bonus: You can watch this lecture at Yale University discussing the novel.

Spread Your Wings

1 comments
This is one of my favorite songs to sing aloud. Granted I'm a horrible singer (this is a fact), but what I lack in talent I make up with volume.

I found Queen's News of the World vinyl record in our basement when I was 14 or 15 years old and remember playing it over and over again. This is one of favorites because I was like, "When I get older, I'm getting out of this stupid house and live the life I'm suppose to live!" Ah, I was so idealistic, I had so many hopes and dreams then. I knew my small life in North Philly was not for me... anyway, I felt like Sammy and knew one day I would just spread my wings and fly away.

Sadly, that never happened. But I'm at peace with that.


I didn't know they had a music video for this!

Bonus: My Melancholy Blues - Another favorite of mine.

Tupac made it into the Library of Congress

The Library of Congress (LOC) named 25 new entries to the National Recording Registry.

In case you didn't know the National Recording Registry is a list of sound recordings that "are culturally, historically, or aesthetically important, and/or inform or reflect life in the United States." Basically this is stuff that United States will keep forever in pristine condition for future generations (or when the aliens invade and want to learn about our culture).


The most interesting entry this year (to me) was Tupac Shakur's (2Pac) 1995 hit rap song "Dear Mama". According to the LOC press release:
In this moving and eloquent homage to both his own mother and all mothers struggling to maintain a family in the face of addiction, poverty and societal indifference, Tupac Shakur unflinchingly forgives his mother who, despite a cocaine habit, "never kept a secret, always stayed real." The song displays further evidence of hip hop as a musically sophisticated and varied genre that can artfully encompass a wide variety of themes and musical influences.
Watch the video below:


This made me wonder if any other rap songs made it into the registry. Well I did a quick look and found the following:
So now we officially have three rap entries which will live forever in the halls of the Library of Congress.

Pretty cool stuff since just a couple years ago people didn't consider rap music, "music".

Harry Potter Fever

1 comments

After watching the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows trailer I think I'm coming down with Harry Potter fever again.

The first time I caught it was in 2007 when JK Rowlings released the final book. It was around May and there was a lot of hoopla about the ending of the series, and being the curious person I am, I figured it was time to see what this Harry Potter and wizards were all about. Needless to say I was enthralled (over 30 HP related posts on my blog).

I was afflicted again about a year ago... which left me with a nervous tick that requires me to obsessively read Harry Potter fanfiction.

You see, the illness, comes suddenly but don't worry for some reason it is NOT contagious. But the fever will cause you to to re-read all the Harry Potter books.

Anyway, I think I got it. But luckily I think my immune system has built up a tolerance because I don't want to read all the books again, just the last four.

Watch the trailer:

Why.......

My Thoughts - True Blood Season 3 Episode 3

2 comments

WARNING: Spoilers will be revealed. Please ONLY read if you've watched this episode. Seriously.

Here are my quick thoughts as I watched the show. I don't feel the need to do a "review" because I'm pretty sure you can find that anywhere on the internet. Here's what was rolling around my mind as I watched:

  • We start off right where episode 2 left off; Sookie just shot the gun and Eric with his vampire speed decides to take the bullet. I wonder how many times Sookie will get Eric shot during the course of the series, I know she was the direct cause for many of his near death loss of blood situations in the book. Anyway, what I found troubling is the fact that Eric allowed the were to get the "drop" on him by believing the were when he said "I can't talk" which allowed him to bite Eric???
  • Wow! So our first look at Eric being a "real" vampire in reference to him killing the were. Okay, it's not our first time, remember in season 2 when Lafayette was chained in the basement of Fangtasia with other prisoners? Then one of the guys throw a silver chain in Eric's face? Well Eric killed him hard (pulled his arms off)... actually you will most likely remember this as the "Is there blood in my hair?" scene.
  • Well Lorena took being burned really well, don't you think?
  • OMG! Tara having crazy vampire sex with Franklin! Those eye lashes were just 'a fluttering. Ummm... vampire sex... now that would be an experience. Actually, I don't think I could handle vampire sex. I'm too much of a scaredy cat, I would constantly think, "he can kill me at any minute by simply snapping me in two"... nope, I have to pass on the vampire sex. Wait! On second thought, I would get over my fear if it was Eric Northman... yup, I'm pretty sure I could get over it.
  • Sam's dad is gross.
  • Was it just me or did Jason look extra cute this episode?
  • OMG! Pam having sex! You know, I think Eric and Pam will end up killing the new dancer with all this sex. That chick won't make it to season 4, no way.
  • Could Sookie make a more dramatic entrance when Tara asked who paid for Egg's funeral? Was she just hiding in the bushes waiting to appear?
  • Bill's flashback - What was that thing on the porch? A sponge and water? Any historians out there know what that was and could you kindly tell me? And any ideas why Lorena stopped Bill from killing his wife? Is it a vampire taboo to kill a relative?
  • Alcide! Well now... he's just a tall drink of water ain't he?
  • "I quit!" stated by Bud. That was hilarious how he quit the police force... dude was sooo fed up.
  • I'm not a Bill fan (I just don't think he's that attractive, not to mention what went down in the books) but I will admit he looked pretty good in that white jacket when he pledged allegiance to Russell.
  • The exchange between Eric and Lafayette was interesting... and I would like to see more of those.
  • I like how Franklin explained how he was able to come into Bill's house (for those wondering how he was able to break in and snoop around last episode).
  • One bad dream and now Jason isn't going to be a cop? Wait, did I really expect him to follow through with that?
  • Did Sam really NOT see that coming (his family stealing or screwing him over)?
  • The Were Bar! I totally remember that from the books!
  • Last but not least - Bill and Lorean's sex scene! After I closed my mouth and my shock wore off (I've never seen anything like that before) and had a couple minutes to think about it I've come up with this relational. Bill doesn't like Lorena. Bill doesn't want to have sex with Lorena, so much so he says, "I will NOT have sex with you" but he DOES have sex with her. That could only mean he wasn't in control of himself (was she forcing him to do it or some other factor?). And since he was having sex with her against his will he couldn't bare to look at her while having sex so he twisted her head around so he didn't have to look at her. Yup, that's the only logical conclusion I could come up with. What do you think?
Oh no! We have to wait two weeks before the next episode... stupid July 4th.

To fill the void I created a new True Blood photo album and will troll the internet and fill it up with any and everything True Blood related. Or check out my Alexander Skarsgard photo album.

In conclusion, it was an okay episode (not as good as 1 or 2)... your thoughts?

Jon Gnarr is Reykjavík's mayor and he's hilarious

0 comments

I recommend you read the New York Times profile article about Jon Gnarr, Reykjavík, Iceland's new mayor. Here are some highlights:
  • Campaigning he promised a polar bear display for the zoo, free towels at the public swimming pools, a drug-free Parliament by 2020 and he would build a Disneyland at the airport to kindergartners
  • In his acceptance speech she said, "No one has to be afraid of the Best Party because it is the best party. If it wasn’t, it would be called the Worst Party or the Bad Party. We would never work with a party like that."
  • Needing a coalition partner he ruled out any party whose members had not seen ALL five seasons of The Wire
  • Best party members include members of Iceland's punk rock scene
  • Since global warming is causing polar bears to swim to Iceland and resulted in them being shot he proposed to capture them and put them in the zoo
And there is more... just read it.

Love can be so insecure, so please be sure

0 comments
This is one of my favorite, "woe is me" songs; a song I will keep on repeat while I'm down in the dumps. I wish I knew how to play the piano so I could be all dramatic and play this song...

The words are so true and love can be insecure and we all need reassurance some times. Doubt in a relationship can be a horrible, horrible thing... and well this song, just expresses it all...


The lyrics...

Make Sure You're Sure
Stevie Wonder


Well the night is young
And the stars are out
And your eyes are all aglow
And you say you feel
Ways you've never felt
But are you sure, make sure you're sure

Well, the wine is sweet
And the music sways
And your lips are so divine
And you say you know
That you're falling in love
Now, let's be mature, make sure you're sure


I'm not accustomed to wearing my feelings
In a place that's so obvious to see
But if eyes don't lie
There's a chance that you are not fooling yourself
And me

Well the night is through
And the sun's come out
And so too has your lovely smile
And you vow to stay
In these arms always
Can you endure, now are you sure

Love can be so insecure
So please be sure


Bonus: Watch Dianne Reeves sing the song... it's like whoa!

My Thoughts - True Blood Season 3 Episode 2

4 comments
WARNING: Spoilers will be revealed. Please ONLY read if you've watched this episode. Seriously.

Here are my quick thoughts as I watched the show. I don't feel the need to do a "review" because I'm pretty sure you can find that anywhere on the internet. Here's what was rolling around my mind as I watched:
  • So we start off with Bill killing werewolves and I will admit I was not a fan of the weres in the books (seriously, I could not stand them) but the idea of them constantly switching to human form naked is very nice. I think this season will out-do itself on showing naked people.
  • I loved when Eric told Sookie not to cry because it makes him feel human.
  • Eric fought for the SS!? And a Godric appearance! I am very happy season two wasn't the end of Godric, er, rather, we get to see him some more. Well, you know what I mean.
  • Pam is just... Pam. Loves her!
  • Some hilarious moments between Sookie and Jason. 1. - Jason wanting to know if Santa is real and 2. - Sookie doing an impersonation of Bill saying "Sookeh".
  • We meet Lafayette's mom! Okay is it wrong to laugh at the racist and inappropriate things mentally ill people say, for instance when Lafayette's mom said, "he's Mexican and hasn't raped me yet" made me laugh very hard.
  • Umm, I don't know what to make of Sam's parents yet, but his brother annoys me.
  • The King of Mississippi and his boyfriend are very interesting. They are so over the top and I love it!
  • Eric moment - In the flashback sceen, after Eric gives the were his blood and she jumps on top of him and Godric kills her, the look on Eric's face while he's laying on the ground is so human and vulnerable. Actually Eric seems to becoming more human as the series develops... a very good character arc (just like the books).
  • And so Bill's background is slowly revealed (re: "mystery" person looking through his paperwork). Those who read the books know what I'm talking about and I can't wait to see how Sookie will deal with them. A question for the book readers - please remind me, which book did Eric make the "revelation" to Sookie in the hospital about our dear Bill?
  • Terry is a sweet heart and I loved his list - "I never killed nothing by accident."
  • I L-O-V-E the accent of the vampire who assisted Tara. Who is this character suppose to be again?
  • And we get our first visit to Hotshot! Geez, I hate that place... seriously.
In conclusion, I would like MORE scenes of Eric and Sookie talking, oh they were just lovely... just like the books. Yup, more Eric and Sookie please... pretty please.

So what did you think of this episode?

Who thinks about authors “hooking up”? That has never crossed my mind in the many years of reading and being the fan of numerous authors… I don’t think of authors as sexual or “sexy”… their stories or characters yes, but the authors themselves, uh, no. But then again, maybe it’s just me???

Okay, okay, I know the author is just making the bigger point of combining different writing styles but that title was wholly misleading.

Charlotte Corday (1860) by Jacques-Louis David

Marie-Anne Charlotte de Corday d'Armont (27 July 1768 – 17 July 1793), known to history as Charlotte Corday, was a figure of the French Revolution. In 1793, she was executed under the guillotine for the assassination of Jacobin leader Jean-Paul Marat, who was partly responsible for the Reign of Terror. His murder was memorialized in a celebrated painting by Jacques-Louis David which shows Marat after Corday had stabbed him to death in his bathtub (above).

Abandoned Detroit Public School Book Depository

The wreckage of the abandoned Detroit Public School Book Depository, which has become a favorite of photographers into ruin-chic. The building, also known as the Roosevelt Warehouse, originally served as a post office, and stands at Fourteenth Street near Michigan Avenue. In 1987, a fire broke out on the third floor, and the school system decided to simply abandon the space. Years later, the Detroit Free Press caused a stir when it reported that thousands of textbooks and other school supplies in fine condition were still sitting in the building, gone to waste. These days, the warehouse serves as a makeshift shelter for some of the city’s many homeless. Last year, the Detroit News reported the discovery of a body frozen in a block of ice in the basement.

My Thoughts - True Blood Season 3 Episode 1

10 comments
WARNING: Spoilers will be revealed. Please ONLY read if you've watched this episode. Seriously.

Here are my quick thoughts as I watched the show. I don't feel the need to do a "review" because I'm pretty sure you can find that anywhere on the internet. Here's what was rolling around my mind as I watched:

  • They had a pre-show before the show and part of me feels like HBO is over doing it in the promotion of True Blood. Some of it is cute but most of it feels like over kill, the more I see it, I feel like it's making the show, umm, how do you say, corny. But HBO has apologized for the marketing (spoof).
  • They start with a season 2 overview, which I appreciated because I forgot some things. But I will say that overview made me remember how GLAD I was that Maryann is dead and how SAD I was that Godric died.
  • I forgot Jason killed Eggs but I'm sure he will get over it rather quickly. I mean the last two women he slept with were murdered... this type of thing is becoming very common for him.
  • Ah, police officer Kenya "filed" Sookie's missing person report! She was in the books... I can't remember if she appeared in season 2???
  • The social commentary mixed into the show is interesting. For instance when Arlene said to Tara "did he blame it on slavery" or when Bill's kidnappers said, "oh like rubbing on your nipples isn't gay" or the old lady Bill takes blood from (she didn't have a phone because she had to pay for oxygen). They are subtle but I get them.
  • I don't know why Jason's stupidity still surprises me. But damnit he's just so cute with his cluelessness.
  • MOST IMPORTANTLY - Our first Eric sighting and he's naked and having sex. Ummm, yes please!
  • I realize the only people who are Team Bill probably haven't read the books. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
  • ANGRY ERIC! That was kind of scary when Eric got angry and started to yell on the phone to the people he hired to get Bill. But then I kind of laughed because it was pretty funny he was talking on a bluetooth.
  • Bill & Sam - OMG! A slashy moment. This is why I effin' love this show! It's going places I never dreamed and the books never hinted. And why was he dreaming about that? I am very interested in where this is going...
  • Hoyt is undeniably the sweetest person. I hope he stays that way... but knowing Alan Ball, sweet Hoyt will eventually be corrupted.
  • Lafayette's outfit (the long basketball jersey and belt) was fab-u-lous! (and pretty funny)
  • OKAY - I am so done with the Tara storyline. For some reason she annoys me and her momma.
  • Vampire Politics! I liked how the Magister accused the Queen and Eric of selling V (which they ARE selling). The books dealt a lot with vampire politics (they did not sell V in the books) and I enjoyed those story lines so I'm interested to see where this will play out in the show. And why is the Queen so broke?
  • I love Terry!
  • Operation Werewolf!!!!
In conclusion, I am VERY excited about this season (minus the Tara issues).

So what did you think of this episode?

Blog of the Day - Jesus, Kirk and Vinny

0 comments

Jesus, Kirk and Vinny

As the blog states, "Hi, I'm Vincent "Vinny" Van Gogh... artists, mad man, dead guy. I live with James T Kirk and Jesus in the City of Industry- where we pretty much just watch TV all day. This is my blog about it."

This is funny, trust me.
