Sparkle and Shine


The photo is flipped by the way, I can't seem to get it the right way, but here is my tattoo. It is actually the left arm.

Now, on to other things.
The year 2008 will be over in like 48 hours or so, and it was an okay year, not fabulous but didn't totally suck either.

I find myself on a bunch of new websites talking to morons. Oh sorry, I mean 16 year old kids who think they know everything but can't even type a sentence without using numbers in place of letters. You know the kind I mean. I hate that. Yes I know I need to find someone my own age to play with, but given the state of the internet that is almost impossible. And forget the people where I live, they are nothing but drunk bar stars.

And the topic seems to still be about the Twilight book/movie. Everyone I have come across seems to be in love with Edward Cullen. 15 year old girls are swooning at the idea of this character. When I asked one girl in a book chat about why it was she was soooo in love with him her response was the parts in the book when he comes into Bella's room at night through her window.
I don't know about the rest of you adults out there, but if I were to wake up in the middle of the night and see some dude had broke into my window he better be covered in blood with a large knife in hand twitching cause the voices told him to be there.
Because that is not romance it's a restraining order.
Someone else was talking about the part where Edward is telling Bella that he doesnt want her hanging around other guys. Again, the possessiveness is not sexy it's scary.
And if this is what the young women are drooling over, then we have just prepared this next generation for abusive lovers.
Not that it seems to matter, as we just raised a generation of men who are gloomy brooding babies. What is with the hair? If I live to be 200 I will never understand this socalled Emo subculture.

Speaking of guys with unwashed hair, has anyone been following TNA Impact lately? Note to Chris Sabin it's called shampoo.

Belly Dancing P.2

Well...I am sheepish to say that I let it slide for the last couple of months. And now I am wishing I hadn't. Got back to my belly dancing today and not only was I so out of shape I could not remember anything I managed to learn this past summer. I am starting pretty much back at ground zero with my training.
Given that it is being incompassed into other aspects of my spiritual rituals right now, I feel mad at myself for having gotten out of the routine I was in only 5 months ago. At lest now I have an idea just how much I need to do to get back on track.

Have We Gone Past Good Taste?

I am a fan of horror. Let me rephrase that, I am a fan of good horror.
Vertigo, Rear Window, Psycho, Nightmare on Elm Street 1, Hellraiser 1, Carrie, Secret Window. But what I have been witness to this last week on some of the discussion boards have nothing to do with horror. Everyone wants just death and ass.
One person said if you want mindless bloodshed watch the news, if you want sex watch a porno. Well I have to agree with them. We watch horror films not just for the high amount of bodies but for the characters. What is more frightening watching someone running through the woods screaming for 2hours or watching how someone slowly begins to doubt reality?
Madness to me has always been creeper then some dude with a hockey mask. There is a reason H.P. Lovecraft is considered the master of horror. He planted the seeds of doubt and panic into all his main characters hinting at something more sinister and darker then we could understand. And he did not need to hide his monsters behind sports gear.
Bram Stoker delighted audiences and made them faint with baited breath when he wrote Dracula over a hundred years ago with the idea of temptation of the soul. Mary Shelley handed the world the beginning of the end when she wrote Frankenstein almost 200 years ago; delivering mortality vs morality.
When did temptation and ego become the gunk we today are clogging our minds with?
I am on another site where the owners are having some troubles with the hosting company. Why? Because they were told to clean up their site. Too much sex too much death. The one owner is trying to locate a place that will let her post uncensored porn and gore. What she isn't understanding is that she's not going to find that on a free hosting site. Nice person but total posterchild for the desensitized generation-sheep I am talking about.
The world is truly a gutter and everyone is just playing in the sewers. Have we become as mindless as the zombies on our screens ;simple sheep , is there a chance for us as a society to free ourselves from this dumbass- watered down -so called demon thrall? Or have we as genre fans gone past good taste because no one is serving us anything but regurgitated slock?

TNA's Turkey Bowl 2008

The second I saw that Alex Shelley had made it past the first round I knew he was going to have to wear the turkey suit.
But damn if he didn't make that a fashion statement. The fact he looked right into the cameras and made comments about it being internet material let's you know that he not only has a good sense of humour, but that he's willing to do whatever for the show.

On the Topic of Vampires...


Okay, so if you read my other blog Alucard's Rose this past week then you know I went to see this film.
And didn't like it.

Well, I never thought I (known to this city's Blockbuster staff and Chapters staff as the Crazy Vampire Lady ) would ever have one of my family members sticking up for a vampire but it happened. My cousin who I would never in a million years have thought would pick up a vampire novel let alone champion it, did just that. She left me a Facebook telling me to read the books. I am all for any story that can get someone around me to pick up a vampire....er um you know what I mean... so I have decided to do just that. This series must have some redeeming qualities if not just my anti-vamp cousin but her daughter and my aunt all are in love with the books.

And by now you have all most likely read in the news that the second book was green lighted for a movie that is to go into production soon. Not too mention the fact Twilight the Movie beat out Sex and the City for box office status as #1 Chick Flick of all time.

Middle of November

And mindless.
Okay, I got back from what is most likely my last trip for the next few years ; I was in Edmonton once again.
Spent way too much, as shopping is my biggest vice.
Got the rest of my tattoo done. And as soon as the peeling process is finished, I will post a photo of it.
Found a few new hobbies to keep me busy over the next few months, one being comics. I know, I know graphic novels. Just the Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 8 and the Angel ones. As well, I now have a few more video games in the collection. And I am asking myself when did that happen?

Now if I can just figure out how to get the pictures from my cell phone into my computer I would be rocking.

One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell.....part two

I just finished reading this novel.
I managed to read it in under 3 days. Any other author's work would have that a record for me, but Candace Bushnell's books are like chocolate candies to me. Once you pick it up you can't stop till its gone.

Two characters I wish she had spent more time on- Philip and Schiffer. They were a fabulous idea but could have used some extra chapters on them as a couple. I hope Bushnell is thinking of bringing them back in other novels.

I found myself really really hating, just hating the character of Lola. I just kept waiting for something horrible to happen to her. I hated that character because she was written too well, like too many twenty-somethings I have to deal with in real life.

Without giving away too much of the story -it centers around a group of people living in a very colourful and gritty building on One Fifth Avenue in New York. Two married couples, a famous writer, a movie star, an aged society lady, and a tart. Toss in some stolen art, blackmail, sex and desperation and it is one hell of a read.

The gods must have been whispering in Bushnell's ear when she wrote this, because she peppered it with mentions of Sex and the City, which for fans of hers is all it would take to get the jokes.

This book is worth it to pick up hardcover. It is on my top list of recommends to my friends.

One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell


I am a devotee of Candace Bushnell. And if you have been reading any of these posts over the last few years you guessed that.

So, here I am reading the latest novel by her, and have come to a part in the story that has me raising an eyebrow. Her commentary on the way blogging has become a contact sport.

Let me start by saying I have not finished reading the book. I am about half way into it.

Therefore I am not too sure if she is meaning this plot line as pro or con for us bloggers. But a large chunk of the story is revolving around the use of blogs as a main writing tool. A large chunk of the story is about communication today in general.

What is with all the porn?

I put the word gothic into the computer search and what comes up, porn.
I put the word teen into the computer search and what comes up, porn.
I put the word corn into the ....you get the idea.

I was just on a site that had a hidden popup to my horror when I closed the window, there was a popup for a porn site webcam. What the hell?!!!????

There is one way for us non-watchers to keep from getting bammed with it, use the filters. Yes I know that. But when the extra strength filters are on, you end up with nothing coming up in your searches because everything has been filtered out.

Even with a popup blocker I still ended up with something slipping in...er um...ending up on my computer screen hidden under my browser window.

There is a time and place for everything, even porn. Just not on my computer.

Just a Sunday afternoon

Not a lot going on today. This week has been a total let down.
I was suppose to get my tattoo on Friday, but when I went into the shop, he refused to do the design I had. Seems when Ninja booked it for me (when she had her's done) she did not mention to the Tattooist that I had one already. That was a bit of a problem for him since I was wanting to add on to it.
So I ended up spending a half hour trying to sort out the design to be something he was willing to do. In the end I re-booked it. I already paid a deposit that I can't get back, and he's the only inker in town so I had no choice.


And this week was the DVD release of Sex and the City Uncut.
What can I say about it? I thought it was fabulous the first time I cry...er saw it in the cinema and with the extras I think it is even better.

And just intime for the new release by Candace Bushell One Fifth Avenue you can check out the Queen of Chick-Lit at her official website here http://www.candacebushnell.com/

Andrew and the Aluminumsidings Take 3

Once again I got asked why my blog has this title.
Well, we had a band way back in school 20some years ago, and that band turned into the bases for one of my novels.
I am Andrew and the Aluminumsidings. Lead singer, creator, and keeper of the key.
Yes, we have talked about getting the band back together, and things keep stopping us, like everyone else having grown up and had babies. (not me I am child free thank you)

Twitch City

or How I am a Television Show.
The late 1990's brought a stunning new idea to the Canadian viewer; a show that showed how life was becoming so surreal that it blurred the lines between what we watched and what we were.
Twitch City ran for only two short seasons, but created not only a large and loyal fan base but turned the sitcom on it's head. With episodes like "Planet of the Cats" we saw the old idea of television storylines like group fear and dream sequences mixed to deliver an underlining point of view.( The only episode in the series where the "Rex Reilly show" was not a violent part of things. )
Mixing cartoonish reality with a talk show mentality we saw issues like revenge, loneliness, lust, disgust, racism, cults and depression.

I don't know if my personal love of this series has more to do with the fact I used to be in Television myself, or the fact that I used to be a Television Addict like the lead character Curtis. (my cure was to go cold turkey and get rid of the cable) But I also found myself identifying with the character of Hope at different points of the show. (does she fall for him cause even though he seems like the wrong guy he is the right one or cause he's all she knows?)

TNA IMAPCT GAME




So I have a Playstation 2, and am just not a gamer. The game is great non-the less. But if I were a wrestler, I would never be X-Division champ. I have tried and tried over the last week to get that Ultimate X but...fall short every time.
As far as the "story" goes, I can't get out of the first level.
Again, I am not a gamer
But this commercial is cool!

What do you mean the back up isn't backing up?

Used one of those little jumpdrives/flashdrives to transfer some of my work from one computer to the other. Simple right?
Nope never seems to be with me. The program was transferring but the information wasn't . I had to go in and open another application, copy the text manually and then transfer it that way.
Have an instant back up set for the moment, but what is the point of disks and drives if they are not going to copy the entire data?

Future Shop sucks!

You heard me.
My laptop died. I only had it a year, and they gave me a major run around. Finally had to go to a different store and pay for another laptop. $1698.00 for a new one.
Damn!
Lost everything, my research, my novels, my poetry, photos etc. My life was on that computer and there is no way to get my data.
And yes I had backed up 70% of my stuff. It was the stuff I had done in the last while that was lost. Data troubles, my problem.
Future Shop giving me a run around and shifting me off from one department to the other, their problem.
So to quote TNA wrestler Cowboy James Storm "sorry about your damn luck".

Top 10 Hotties

As seen through my eyes. And just why you are asking am I doing something like this? It came out of a conversation I had with ....or should say was kind of having...with some other women about who we thought were really hot older actors. Given that most of the 'huh' other women were under the age of 22, older for them ended up equaling my age -sad but true- needless to say I could identify less then half of who they were gushing about. So here is my personal taste in famous and kinda famous men I think should be on this list.
And if you are paying attention, yes there is a theme here.......


10. Stone Cold Steve Austen

9. Shaggy 2 Dope from the Insane Clown Posse

8. TNA's Hernandez {member of Tag Team LAX}

7. WWE's Kane

6. Hunter S. Thompson {the writer of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas}

5. David Draiman from Distrubed

4. Evan Handler {Harry on Sex and the City}

3. Stanley Tucci {as seen in Devil Wears Prada}


2. Johnny Depp {as Hunter S. Thompson/Raoul Duke in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas}


1. Vin Diesel




Yes it's no secret that I have a major thing for bald men! Why? Well, it's a bold bold brave move for a man to go for the chrome and indeed very sexy. Because sexy is more then just a good body. Having the confidence to be true to yourself is the sexist thing a man can do. For those of us who are just a little bit of a Charlotte York {SATC} we know a great man when we see him.

Friday, August 8, 2008

More of that guy

What is it about men that make us loose our minds so completely?
So StandUpGuy was here last night and of course he's the only thing on my mind now. Right, bad bad bad!
I don't know if I am going to be able to get anything done around here today now cause my mind keeps drifting to him. How is it that just one smirk {and yeah we KNOW it's a smirk boys} how is it that one smirk from a man can send us poor females into a total tailspin?
And it just seems from what I have witnessed with my social circle and myself, that the smarter the woman the more loopy we get over the man. WHY?
Oh and you single men aren't our only troubles no sir indeedy .
The very- and in this case I mean VERY- married ones cause us alot of strife too. I was on Facebook the other day and a buddy who I haven't seen in almost 20 years contacted me. Nice. And all of a sudden the conversation got personal. Too personal. When I asked him what he was doing given the fact he is "happily married with two kids" he refused to answer. Typical!
Heres a tip for you Mr.HappilyMarried I don't care if it is only on the computer, talk like that is flirting and can be considered cheating. If you were interested you should have made a move 20 years ago.

Dagon pass the ax

And the wicked shit never dies.

Okay, so I was just on a website I just joined the other day reading someone's blog post about how much they hate rap music and just assuming that everyone on the site were metalheads. I was tempted to tell them to eat it raw but instead I wrote my own post in favour of the Dark Carnival . You can read my post here


I am always shocked still to see how closed minded some people are.

Ever have one of those days?

Where no matter what you do or who you try to talk to you just end up feeling invisible? Having one of those days. I was checking out something on here and noticed my ning.com badges had some missing information so I checked them out. Everything seemed okay. I had left some messages for people. but no replies, cant win them all. But one site inparticular made me feel worse then invisible. I haven't been on it in almost a year, and that was because no one there seemed to be greeting me or returning my greets. Had to log in today to check on things, the site has really grown which is great, but something was off...like a wall or something.
Could be me, could be the planets could be ...well me. If I did something to piss any of them off.

Where did I go?

One of the first websites I ever signed up for was the Oprah.com site. I had months worth of threads in the boards and journal entries etc.
I stopped going for a while and recently started up again...and again...and again. Seems everytime that I join up when I go to log in again I am not on their records. Not too mention everything I did there in the past GONE.

Well I suppose I should look at it as a gift. If I am not there then I can't cry over old journal posts about old problems.

that is alittle sad really.

O.I. Don't Know.....

if I can handle this!
Anyone who has read much of my blogs know that not only did I survive a horrid car accident Sept 1 2006, which broke 60% of my upper body, but you know that I have Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type 1.
Now, Ninja also has it and she is very well able to handle Pilates and Yoga no troubles.
I was having troubles just now with the first lesson of the Tai Chi. My ribs aching and ankle swollen.
The journey I am determined to embark on with the Yoga/BellyDance may well be more then my body can handle.
Though I must say just from the first lesson today my energy feels better. My Solar Plexus are my main problem Chakra at the moment and could be too why I am buying more yellow outfits.

Belly Dance

It's seductive, it's erotic, it's classic and it's what I plan to do.
I have always loved the look of Belly Dancing, and was kinda scared to try it for fearing looking like a female version of Jabba the Hut in a lowrise skirt. But if we don't face our fears we will never get anywhere in this plane of existence.
So I searched online and found myself on one very cool website World Dance New York
With every type of belly dancing there is and there's alot. So I watched the previews, and ordered myself two dvds .
I also went out to the store and picked up a Tai-Chi dvd, a belly dancing cd and a small "Mini Belly Dancing Kit".
As well as a yoga mat and knee pads. Yes; as I was informed that yoga movements are a major part of belly dancing.
Jabba the Hut be damned, this is one goal I have set that I have wanted for a very long time.

Flirting?

Seems I don't know how.

Studies say that when you flirt with someone with the intent to catch a mate you should always pick someone with the same level of attractiveness as yourself. but I don't want an ugly man!
And you should know when to pick someone to flirt with for the sake of flirting and for mate finding. there's a difference?
And you should only flirt with someone who will be interested in you. but if I don't flirt with him how am I going to know if he's interested ?

When it comes down to it, I am a shy girl. A shy girl who has both waited around for a guy to tempt me (which got me nowhere at all) and tried to tempt men (which also got me nowhere at all) Even when I come across as hotsauce { loud, abrasive, steaming} I am still a shy girl at the core. I have been called too wholesome by the Trainwreck that was in my life few years ago; and too Jane Austen for my own good by male friends.

So then where is the middle ground? We read in articles both in magazines and on the internet to be willing to make the first move and not be afraid of what society will think of us. Okay, done that and gotten nothing. Well, not nothing; I have gotten laughed at by a few men and even caused one to puke on his shoes.
Not the best ego booster.
These same magazines and internet articles then turn around and tell us to wait for the man to make the first move because they need to feel like they are in control of things. I am still waiting for that manly-man to introduce himself to me. Waiting Waiting Waiting....

For some reason, it seems to that most of these how to flirt manuals on the net these days are written by teenaged girls. How is it that a 14 year old in the middle of Iowa is better at the art of seduction then a middle aged woman? I have no clue but seems she's able to get a date for the weekend and I am stuck sitting around watching episodes of Lipstick Jungle.

stupid!

Spent 2 hours talking to "StandUpGuy" night before last, and had made plans with him for last night. Guess what, he stood me up again. God Damn It!
This time he didn't even call to say he wasn't coming over.
The worst part is that we have been in the same social circle for 26 years, and I have never known him to be this... crude.
Is it just me? Am I a human magnet for bad dates? (or in this case bad get togethers)

In one episode of SATC the question is put out there "Is it simply because my dad wasn't around and therefore I am screwed up about men?" {episode 65 'A Vogue Idea'}
This question seems to be sticking in my mind as of late, and I have no idea if it is the proper thought pattern.
They say that if everything goes to hell in relationships and you are the only common factor then you are the problem. Okay, fine it's me. No really if I am my own problem then how to I fix me?

When stand up guys aren't so standup

I made plans middle of the week with a buddy from school who I haven't seen in ages. Everything went well, we talked for an hour on the phone joking with each other and there were moments when he said things that put ideas in my head.
I actually was starting to really look forward to seeing him. I was all dressed and ready to go meet up with him when he canceled. He had a fairly reasonable excuse not to met me; but still it seemed alittle ....rehearsed.
That was middle of the week, here it is Saturday night and I haven't heard anything else from him.
So when do you know if that "stand up guy" is really the real deal or just standing you up?
Did I read his tone wrong the night we made plans, or did he change his mind? Did he think I had more devious intentions then he thought and got repulsed?
Talk about being confused; I was rejected by someone who I am not even sure I am sexually attracted to, and I feel like I have just had my last request infront of the death squad denied.

Re-write Draft 1

I really hate this part of the writing process. The fact when you have to sit down and face the first re-write of the next draft.
The part where you start to change character names, move scenes around, flesh out the smaller characters.
I wrote a semi-bio/semi-fiction back in 1998. I finished the story ...or so I had thought. Then in 2004 I gave it a satisfactory ending, only to have my computer die before I could back it up. Brilliant eh?
I didn't touch the story again depressed at the thought of not being able to recreate that great ending I had spent days at.
Till now.
So I pulled the story out the other week, for whatever reason it was tugging at me. And giving it a second draft have created almost a completely different story.
The fact that I could throw out 90% of the original story without care; does that mean I have become a better writer or just a colder one?

Friday, June 27, 2008

And; and what?

AAAaaaaannnnnnnaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhnnnnn! {loud high pitched scream here for as long as you can hold your breath}
Having one of those "Mad Gerald" moments {Rik Mayall's character in The Black Adder Season 1 Episode 6}
Yeah, feeling like running around with my hair a mess in dirty ragged clothes unshowered laughing and wailing like a seal on steroids.
But cheer up, it's Rik Mayall day. {okay not really by any legal or cultural standards that I am aware of, just watching old episodes of Bottom, Black Adder and The Young Ones}
It's been raining here most of the week, all dark and overly humid. Dripping dripping dripping.
Did you notice that as the series for Black Adder progressed the character of Bladrick got stupider and stupider? I noticed that.

Am I having a Carrie moment?

Today was one of those days where I just didn't want to talk to anyone. So I curled up on the sofa in my Insane Clown Posse hoodie and watched half of season 1 and the middle of season 3 of Sex and the City.
One of the episodes that stuck out was where Carrie asks "Do we need drama to make a relationship work?" (episode 37 'Drama Queens') In that episode everything is going perfect between Carrie and Aidan. Maybe too perfect.
The idea of self sabotage is something we all do but can't seem to see it when it is happening, or admit it when it is pointed out to us.
I keep wondering if I have killed my relationships when they were going well because I just couldn't believe it was. It seems I have at lest once; as D'argo pointed that out to me. (I haven't figured out if he is my Big, my Aidan, my Burger or just where he really fit in the grand scheme of things.) It is a hard pill to swallow when someone you love tells you to relax cause you are sabotaging yourself.
Did I learn anything from my little mini SATC marathon? Only that I miss him alot. I also couldn't help but think of the TrainWreck who walked out on me back in 2004. Two very different men two very different relationships one final result. They left a major imprint on my soul and maybe even my psyche.
Can we really get past our great loves or are we doomed the moment we set eyes on them?
In another episode, (episode 67 'Anchors Away') Charlotte tells Carrie that you only get two great loves in a lifetime. If that is true then I have played both my hands.
If we really need drama to make a relationship work; then how do we know it's working?

Back the Freal up before I back the truck up

God damn it!
Was talking to Somber and her mom. Her mom is a stubborn woman. Fine can deal with that.
Through out the conversation everything I said she stomped on without reason to. The conversation ended with her telling me my work was crap and I was crazy. I asked her why she thought that and she logged off of the chat.
Yes this was an internet conversation.
No one likes to be insulted. All she had to do was say that she disagreed with my point of view. She did not have to be rude about it.
Somber kept defending her mom by saying "That's just how she is."
I understand you wanting to stand by your mom; no harm in that. But I came to the conversation with an open mind to her topics, even at times could see how they fit into what we were trying to say with our topics. But she wouldn't even try to see mine, hell she wouldn't even listen to a full sentence I said.

There has been so many issues with the little group I have been part of these last few months, but then again what can I expect? No friendship/relationship can make it past the 3 month mark without the foundation cracking.

So here is the question, when do you move on and when do you try to work it out? What is the line of battle to be drawn? How many little things should you ignore before they become too big to handle?

C-51/52

I don't know alot about this, but I do know it's causing a stir around here.
The Canadian Government is trying once again to pass the bill stating that certain health food items are not listed as such. This has to do with the drug companies not wanting major competition and deciding that a drug label should be on certain things.
I was passed a very lengthy email from the Superior Shores Wellness Center along with an online address to send the protests. www.healthcanadaabuse.com

Tartini : The SATC review


Over $56.8 Million dollars opening weekend, ($25 million opening night) which tells you that people want more.
And the heads of HBO answered with this movie tie in book, hardcover. It covers the film, some behind the scenes stuff, and is just absolutely fabulous. It is a spoiler if you haven't seen the film yet so buy it after you watch.

Ninja and I went Sunday to the matinee , she took her sunglasses ;I took my black Chapters Book Tote with 3 packs of tissue. Yes, I knew crying would be involved, thank goddess we were not the only ones in the cinema with our eye make-up down to our shoes. There wasn't any room infront of the bathroom mirrors in the ladies room after the film as the entire cinema piled into the ladies room to fix their eyes. I left the building going "wait! The scene with Standford and Anthony, when did that storyline happen?"
The movie itself didn't start till after -brace yourself- the 25mintues of promos and previews. We heard about all the product placements, but until you are sitting in the cinema waiting for it to start, you don't realize how much products actually went into this film.
We ended up going to the mall for lunch and wouldn't you know it, every single store that sells women's clothes is carrying the trademark pink in their lines this year. Funny, I was at the mall last week and not a dash of pink to be found. Is that timing or what?
Yes I will be running out to buy the DVD release of this film when it comes out, and no I will not have pudding in my Prada.

Sex and the City Motion Picture Soundtrack

It was released today, and I downloaded it from iTunes
I want dearly to be able to say it's worth it, but I can't.
There are 15 tracks on here (digital booklete makes 16 for iTunes users) and only about 3 are any good.

Book Shelf



I spent a nice chunk of yesterday updating my profile on Library Thing and Chapters Community

Reading the Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx right now.

Speaking of school; I found out that Sudbury has a few universities that offer Religious Studies. Hopefully I will be able to go there within the year for school. All depends on if I can get a loan, and of course accepted to the course. Been 13 years since I graduated from the Television programme here in town.

Thursday I think?

It's been one of those weeks where everyday pretty much has dissolved into one day.
The seminar I went to on Wellness was great. Ninja was asked to be her helper for the thing. Wish I had known that I would have taken my camera. This session was on the colon, so my sister had to stand up with an apron and gloves on, pouring different items of food into a nylon to show just how most stuff does not flow through the colon at all.
Signed up to go to the next batch of seminars.

damn!

I just tried to get to a profile I have on another website and am getting an Error message saying the page does not exist. That really sucks as it is that horror site I liked.

LaLaLaLa and a Lynch movie

Uh huh, still in David Lynch movie mode. Have watched all the episodes of Twin Peaks plus Fire Walk With Me ,and then sat through Inland Empire. Today's movie de jour will be Lost Highway...I think. I have a conference thingie to go to.
Ninja is doing alot better and goes back to college now in 2 weeks. Eventhough the doctors are still stupid as to what has caused her all this pain.
I know I haven't done any reviews in a long while, but I haven't seen/read anything that has moved me to. Nothing that would make me really want to tell someone to get or stay away from something.
And for someone with a strong sense of opinion that is kinda like taking Chiana's sex drive from her (Farscape moment there people)

Another new blog

Yes I need a Bloggers Rehab or something.
This one is just for my Second Life stuff

Wrestling at the Moment My Thoughts

1) No one cares about Shawn Micheals retire already
2) ECW....what are you doing with it? We don't get it here where I live BUT what I have seen as of late on Smackdown.....what are you doing with it?
3) JCW is touring which is wonderful for the fans who actually live in the places it's been coming to, but crappy for those of us who used to tune into SlamTV every week as there has been nothing for months.
4) Polkaroo! I like what they are doing with their Eric Young/SuperEric Polkaroo story line. It's not always you can find a man who can play the sweet innocent gag
5) Why have the MotorCityMachine Guns! been kept from the tag belts? I just don't understand that one.
6)Kevin Nash is got his eye on the belt ....yes?
7)KAZ needs to cut his hair. Everytime I watch TNA lately with Kaz I can't stop thinking that any second he's going to start reciting Antonio Banderas' lines from Interview with a Vampire.

which Twin Peaks character are you?

http://www.quizilla.com/quizzes/821550/Which Twin Peaks Character Are You?



You are Leland Palmer.
Your daughter's death broke your heart and shattered your mind. You can think of nothing but that night she left you...though oddly, flashing images tend to appear every time you try and recount the circumstances surrounding Laura's death. But it can't be true. It just can't. It just...who's Bob?!

Dear Travel Diary

Got back from Kitchener and Niagara Falls Ontario this week.
Ninja and I bused there, took 24hours to arrive. Here is a photo of Ninja peeking out from her seat on the bus near the beginning of the trip.
Kitchener ended up being alittle confusing.
Niagara Falls, was fun but not as great as it's been hyped up as. What I don't understand is the bugs? Every where we went we found candied bugs and bugs incased in necklaces. I just don't see what the deal with that is?
















I posted a few of our "coffee" related photos on My Cup Is Empty blog, and hope Ninja gives me copies of the ones she took of the Falls when we went on the Made of the Mist boat ride. We were styling and profiling in the blue plastic ponchos they handed out cause, its not just a mist.

OMG!

Oh my god! Kim Cattrall is wearing my dress.
I was just reading through the Sex and the City Official Movie Blog and spotted a photo of the 4 ladies (April 17th post) and right away my eyes went wide.




Okay here is me in the really really bad knock off And if you go to the SATC blog
You will see the dress I am talking about.

I don't get it?



There is a subculture In-World that I just don't understand. the Nekos
I just don't understand why they want to live in dirty looking back alleys and stuff like that pretending to be cats.
I know Asian culture has a cat god that is meant to bring luck called the Maneki Neko, and that in some myths if a house cat lives long enough it can become a shapeshifter called an Neko. But why would more then half the population of second life want to be living in a dirty environment ? The whole Anime sub-popculture is sited almost every time I have traveled in sl with Nekos. Hmm? Makes you wonder who is running the show adults or kids?

I hate this

I hate where I live, and the people in my building.
I have been saying for 2 years now that I need to move. Not just my building but my city. I am at the point where I am ready to just say freal it and give my notice. I just need a new place first. This trip to Kitchener/Waterloo and Niagara Falls this next week better give me a hope at finding something new. I just can't take much more of this city!
If not, then I need to look at some of the other buildings around this neighbourhood cause I have had it with the lack of any kind of maintenance around here.

So I have been thinking

Should I or shouldn't I have a separate blog for all that I have been learning as of late with my occult/wicca/spiritual stuff?
I am almost hesitant to add it here, but at the same time since I am in a few groups in sl that are pagan based and this is where I dump my sl stuff maybe I should?
I am not really sure. Just know that I want to start talking more about it all.

Tuesday....

What up?
Well, the wedding in sl went by without a hitch on saturday. Very pleased on that.
Ninja is starting to finally feel better after months of whatever it has been (doctors still have no clue)
And the downstairs neighbours are complaining that their bathroom ceiling is leaking. The landlord checked my bathroom and pipes yesterday. Nothing wrong on my end. So it must be their pipes right?....Impossible he says.
Now I have to have a repair man come in and tear my bathroom apart because everyone thinks the problem is from me even though we proved otherwise. Great. What am I suppose to do about not having a bathroom for however long it takes?
And if it has been happening for awhile, why did they wait so long to do anything about it?

A running series in SL

I have been part of a story that has been covered by the entire slnewspaper team for the last 2 months.
I even created my own spin off story.
Time for my next installment. This will be part 3 in my spin off.
The original plot was that one of our team was sent to prison in world and all the violence that happened while he was in there along with secret deliveries to the news office of his diaries.
My spin off plot is the fact that I was having nightmarish visions so vivid that blood and ectoplasm was happening physically around me.
Now the next stage in my spin off will include Cthulhu, more blood (of course) and a baby.
Great for helping to kick the writers block abit.

Hair colour of tomato sauce



Dyed my hair this afternoon with a mouse dye and this is the colour I got.

Where are you on the Sex and the City Food Chain?

photo copyright hcvp'07

Out with Ninja today and we were talking about our love lives and that of our social circle and of course chatting about Sex and the City. It is the one show we have in common.
In our craziness of mish-mashed world view, we were trying to figure out just where in the relationship world we are through the eyes of the characters of the tv show.
If you have been reading this blog for the last year you know my sister is in an up-down-over-not over relationship with MonkeyBoy. The question we were posing was "if he is her MR.BIG then who is her Adian?" Very good question, that is assuming she is having a Carrie moment. I said she might very well be having a Charlotte moment in which case is MonkeyBoy her Trey or her Harry? Ninja shook her head and said "no! I am in my Miranda moment and he is my Steve." (her hands flying everywhere to make her point then a giggle of not being sure)
Hmm? Then we tried to figure out where I am at the moment. Am I having a Carrie moment too? If so, I think I know who my Mr. Big is but then who is my Adian?
And all this crazy talk got started when we both said on Wednesday when we go out with mom we both wanted to wear our new shoes since the snow and muck have gone for the winter.
See it really is all because of the shoes.

Back from Trenton

I had a blast staying with Somber and her husband this last week.
What started out as just a little trip with friends turned into a Pagan retreat. Much was learned and gathered. From finding a few copies of vampire movies I didn't even know were out on dvd to why my life is stuck.
One reason, I learned was that the film can't be finished because ;you ready for this; I made it that way. Yeap. I wrote a script where the film ( it was a film within a film) does not have a shot in hell of being done. Therefore the real movie we were doing is stalled. I created my own reality and in that reality I am a failure. Still with me good.
I backed this up by having the props (fake blood) frozen in my freezer for the last year therefore suspending the energy in time.
We watched What the Bleep down the Rabbit Hole and so many things just seemed to click in place.
Other things happened on that trip but going to keep that to myself.

Lost Boys 2 The Tribe

What do we think of this? I personally have mixed feelings. I loved loved loved the first movie 20 years ago and plan to buy this one simply because it is the second film. I really am not sure so far otherwise. The story seems very weak to me.

April Fool's Day DVD

1986 released one of the classic cult horror films in April Fools Day.
2008 sees a sequel
In the original film a group of college students spending the weekend at a house in the middle of an island. One by one they end up falling victim to an escaped killer.

In the new version (labeled on the internet as a remake in some areas ) we have a brother and sister who on the evening of throwing a party a guest dies in their home. A full year later we are taken on a ride to flush out the killer.
The second film is an action film not a horror and just keeps replaying the recent teen genre over and over.

Mid-Week Thoughts

I had some how managed to loose 10 pounds last week without even trying. And today gained 5 pounds back. That sucks.
Know what else sucks-WWE's Raw this week. 3 hours of well crap. I get that they have a huge star every WrestleMania who is outside of the scope of wrestling, but this boxing thing? I don't know.
I ended having to go back to sl yesterday for a newspaper meeting. How did it make me feel? Well, I missed everyone which I suppose is a good thing. Anyway, now have to get a few stories done for the paper before the weekend. La-Te-Da-La-Te-Da.
Guy troubles. Like 2 different guys, started something with one. Hope something works out.
Ninja is still sick. The doctors keep pushing her appointments around. nothing new has been learned. This is nuts! It's been going on for 6 months now. People Please!
My work is on hold once again.....there's a shocker for ya! Brain freeze on the whole thing. I swear, if I ever do manage to get through another manuscript draft straight through again, the roof might cave in on me. Oh well such is life such is rock n roll.
Neighbour's kid is screaming his lungs out once again. Then again, when is he not?

Mad Directors, Coffins andMidget Vampires Oh my!

I went vampire movie shopping the other day picking up 30 Days of Night,
Shadow of the Vampire, Cure of the Vampires , Ankle Biters.
Now I put in the film Ankle Biters not having even heard of it before (yes we already know I am crazy stupid sometimes for buying movies before seeing them) and am only about 20 minutes into it feeling the need to blog about it.
Why not wait till I am done the film? What would be the fun in that?
It's an independent film (as in low/no budget) done for the sake of telling a story not for the sake of making stars. I love films like that! Good or Bad doesn't matter. What matters is the desire to create.
So far this has some pretty good one liners.

Feeling the pressure

Let's face it some of us are just not meant to play the part of the Pop-Tart.
The last few days the pressure seems to be on for me to. Sure buying the outfits, getting all done up makes me feel sexy for the time it takes. But once the photos are done and I am in the stage of seeing them on my sites I feel just so unsexy and even ridiculous.
I had taken one of the old photos we did for the company website and added a poem over it in red having decided I wanted to spice up my profile on the goth site I hang out on. One person asked what the poem said, and that is my buddy. Yes I am not denying that I got more hits in that few hours it was up. But I felt weird about it given most of the people on that site are under 25. Why did I do it? Because I was the only one in clothes in my profile photo. I ended up taking it down and putting up one of me in the mudmask at the Lush party. I got no hits at all. That made me feel even less about myself. So back to the old photo gallery where I pulled up one from the same photoshoot as the first one was from, ran it through a paint program and have it up now (the one the last blog was about)
Today got me thinking I would get gussied up and have a few more done. I am sitting here now because half way through getting ready I just felt ugly and silly.

So my life is all wrong

Damn!
I was working with a new program, and tried to send a photo to my friends' email straight from the program. I got a page come up suddenly saying it was sent to the host network.
I am on a community network. So now some strange person will have my photo popping up and they will have a link to my computer and everything.
Life is a crap box for me and I seem to be nose deep in it.
Hopefully they will just think it is spam and junk it.
I guess it just goes to prove you shouldn't be working at 2 am on things.

TNA thoughts and birthday wishes

Happy Birthday Ninja! My sister is 26 today.
Happy Be-lated Birthday Setla. I know it was last week sorry I missed it.

My thoughts for TNA Impact for the weeks of Feb 14 and 21

*AJ Styles and Karren Angle getting married....DUMB!

*Abyss removing the mask and walking out.....It was needed, the gimmick could only go on for so long. Can't wait to see how they handle his direction now.

*Mixing car racing with wrestling.....Been done before with WCW (anyone else remember Vampiro being put on a car in paint?) And having the MotorCityMachine Guns! there for the interview was cool. I had to blink when I heard Alex Shelley being serious for a change when he spoke about how one wrong move in wrestling not only can cost the match it could break your neck.

*Team 3D having to hit a smaller weight....As comical as Bubba-Ray was this is a good thing. When anyone gets too large they are risking their health.

*The X-Division Party.....Having Jay Lethal step out of the Black Machismo character after almost a year of being in it is refreshing. Not too sure just what they are doing with that storyline between Lethal and Sonjay Dutt. Is Dutt jealous of Lethal or is he jealous of So-Cal Val?

*Eric Young being scared....He's too cute in this role. You believe completely that he is like a little kid and I keep waiting for him to say "Polkaroo was here and I missed him again?" (Ontario people will get that joke)

Disgust

Have you people no disgust for your selfs. To play vampire like it is some kind of game. Half of you couldn't handel living for a centry. None of you could handle being alone for three thousand four hundred sixty two days. You wouldn't even be worth turning. You would make a better goul or what ever your gen calls them these days. I am a truely porwerful vampire and I'm very angered by the way your kind has treated my people and then turn around in three generations and want to us. I demand respect and I will recieve it for I come for revenge for the nmae of the vampire. I will see you burn in the deepest pits of hell.

Re: Disgust

You go ahead and be disgusted. We are a movie company, not a role play game. We make movies and music videos. And real vampires are born not turned. We have one member that is an Otherkin, and they have no problems with us.
Thanks for stopping in!


and you see this is my answer. Dude, if you feel the need to be flinging shit in my house, you better be wearing a bullet proof vest.

Tarot Card Quiz


You are The Tower


Ambition, fighting, war, courage. Destruction, danger, fall, ruin.


The Tower represents war, destruction, but also spiritual renewal. Plans are disrupted. Your views and ideas will change as a result.


The Tower is a card about war, a war between the structures of lies and the lightning flash of truth. The Tower stands for "false concepts and institutions that we take for real." You have been shaken up; blinded by a shocking revelation. It sometimes takes that to see a truth that one refuses to see. Or to bring down beliefs that are so well constructed. What's most important to remember is that the tearing down of this structure, however painful, makes room for something new to be built.

Whine Bitch Moan GRRRRR

Yeap there is a guy making my brain spin to the point I think I will do a full on exorcist twist.
Ninja said the other day "maybe he just doesn't know you have a thing for him. Men can be stupid". Well maybe he doesn't.? And maybe he does and just is ignoring the idea? Who knows?

The band is in talks of getting back together!
That is right! You read it here first. Well, of course you did, where else would you read it? The band was the brainchild of E. and myself back a million years ago in high school. She was guitar, I was lead and well we sucked, but many many lifetimes later we suck less and it might be the right time to regroup.

The Divorce Sweater

On the DVD commentary for Jane Austen Book Club they talk about the costume choices for each character, and one that gets alot of mention is the sweater the character Sylvia is wearing through most of it. They called it the "divorce sweater".
It got me like a ton of bricks to the skull, cause I have a divorce sweater that I have been wearing for the last few years. Though, I have never been divorced, I have been dumped. We do seem to gravitate to an item of clothing that is the same as the security blanket alot of us had as a child. The sweater or whatever the item might be that we wear all the time when going through a time of depression.
Did I get rid of my divorce sweater? I'll let you know ......

TNA for Feb 7 2008

Just a few thoughts on this week's show.

* the Rock n Rave Infection ....there is a cream for that. Please I am begging you to gag them!

* the feud that seems to be boiling between Samoa Joe and Matt Morgan, let it happen already.

* Shark Boy finally is getting the spotlight he deserves.

* I can't wait for Traci Brooks to beat the snot out of Payton Banks!

* Christian Cage needs the championship belt back around his waist.

* Judas Mesias needs to find his footing. When he was brought in they promoted him as an unstoppable creature, but the last few times I have seen him in the ring he has been nothing but fodder. If they are going to show him as being that weak they need to really push him towards the fans more favourably.

When to Delete

So I had been a member of a gothic website, and really didn't like the way it was. I had joined it last summer for the "database" and once I got there realized it wasn't what it was advertised as. So why did I stay for so long? Coward I suppose. I had stopped going to it two months ago, just left my profile up. Today I got an email saying my password had been reissued...odd I thought. So I logged in and seemed my profile had been hacked or an attempt to hack it. Why? I am boring as hell and no one of specialness. I thought why even keep it, so deleted the whole damned thing. Is that going to mess up other people's threads and profiles? Do I care?

What would Jane do?


The movie version of The Jane Austen Book Club was released this week on dvd in Canada. I have to say I loved every second of it. One movie that stayed very true to the novel and was almost like a primer for Jane Austen's works. The story takes place over the course of 6 months with each month focusing on one Jane Austen book and the lives of the people reading them. Each of the 6 main characters are fashioned after the main people in all the Austen novels. If you have not seen this yet do so.
The bonus features include a small bio of Jane Austen by members of the Jane Austen Society.

TNA and Other stuff

Going to start by saying finally iTunes has listened to what people really want....ICP/Twiztid/Dark Lotus and TNA!

You can find now Hatchet History as well as Cryptic Collection One on the Canadian iTunes, as well as TNA Impact shows for download on the Canadian iTunes. Bout time!

Not really a recap for Impact in this post as I haven't covered anything in two months, but just a few notes on what I am thinking......

1) I get that ODB is the number one contender because of fans support, cool, and that she seems the strongest to met Kong, but I feel the Voodoo Queen is a better wrestler and should be the number one contender.

2) Why are you dragging the tag team title change on so damn long? Let the MotorCity Machine Guns have the titles already! Will make the feud with Team 3D mean more in the end.

3)When and Why did A.J. Styles become so dumb? Why Why Why?

Okay that is about all that is on my mind right now in regards to Impact. Till Next Time....

Imbloc

Blessed Imbloc for those who celebrate it.

Happy Birthday to Devs if he is out there reading this!

I got a very odd invitation through Facebook last week. I did not accept it because it was just too...icky. Viva-Loco Homegirl Esq 's sister sent it to me. Now you remember me talking way back months ago about VLHE being pregnant if you have been following my blogs, well the invite was to a Birthing Party. yeah, you read right, a Birthing Party. Not a baby shower, or anything like that but a party when she goes into labor. I just don't get it? Why? Let me tell you why neither myself or Ninja are going.....1) false labor
2) labor that might be longer then 24 hours
3) don't want to sit around with her family
4) just crazy
5) we haven't talked in 4 months
I just don't understand why you would want a group of people sitting around the room while you are giving birth if they are not medical personal? Makes no sense.
I wish you luck and love with the whole thing, but I just wont' be there when it happens.

and now a word from our sponsor...


Got Blood?

What a weird and odd time I just had this last 2 weeks.
I was an hour late leaving Thunder Bay to begin with, but got to Edmonton without much more then a headache. Which if I was smart would have been thing to pay attention to.
We went to Build-A-Bear and I made two for myself and my sister, hit a HMV where I got a long sought after copy of Monoxide's solo cd ChainSmoker, found two BeGoths Series 5 dolls, and hit Chapters were I found a biography of Hunter S Thompson I didn't know existed, then to the Psychic Fair were upon before opening my mouth she told me to move out of where I live cause it is choking me down, and a visit to Sanctuary.
Then the twins got the flu, I got the flu, Butterfly's husband got the flu, Jack-Jack got the flu and Butterfly got it. That wiped the whole household out for 3 days, and then no internet for a few days because of a storm.
The flight home was late so I didn't get back home till 2 hours later then I was suppose to.
Other then the flu and having spent too much, was an interesting time.
Next destination....Waterloo?

Thursday, January 17, 2008

At the end of the road

Been in Edmonton 2 days and getting into the groove of things. Had a power outage last night, so the clocks were off and we were late for the Twin and Triplet group this morning. Butterfly's husband is tiling the guest bathroom shower so we are all sharing a bathroom, which isn't that bad except that Jack-Jack who is only 3 years old freaks out if you lock the bathroom door and don't let him in.
My SL life had hit a rock bottom moment. I was the manager of a new club, had staff hired, then the one main staff member quit out of nowhere for no reason, and then I got fired. Oh sorry, laid off. Same frealing thing, I lost my job. So you know I am pissed off. For the time being I still have my newspaper job, but with 20 writers on staff, that job is thin at the best of times.
Don't have my tarot cards right now either, didn't pack any because last time I bought 3 decks when here, so thought I would get a chance to buy a few more.
Let's hope things straighten out in the next few days.

Been talking to so film guys on MyMacabre.com, I looked at their work, they looked at mine, and pointed out I hadn't updated the company site in months. That is because there really has been nothing to updated with. Also been talking to some film/tv guys in SL. They proved to me it is possible to create films in there. So with that in mind I have been shopping in sl for gore. Yes, with a few avatars, alot of lindens and too many ideas rolling around in my head, I have started to shoot some of the script for the film we never finished. Who know, if nothing else maybe I can get a demo shot of it.

Creeping Screams!

What were you thnking ?

I just managed to watch this weeks WWE RAW, (I tape wrestling each week and watch when I have the time) and I just need to WHAT IN THE WORLD WERE YOU THINKING?
with the hanging of Chris Jerico? That isn't entertainment, that is just sick!
I don't know who in your creative team came up with that one but once again all you seem to have done is prove that Sports Entertainment is mindlessly heading into a sandtrap.

What I learned from Sex and the City Part 8

Image is everything and our roots will start to show.
In my case at the moment, I have a bizzar need to turn the pages on myself and become that creepy redhead once more. So what was my biggest fashion statement in the last few months? In sl it could be anything, but in real life, it is not the fabulous red waist length winter coat with fake rabbit trim, nor is it the turtle shaped pin with the diamond and emerald (fake of course) shell, no it is infact the $15 horror tee from Fright Rags.
Yes you read right. My biggest fashion statement in the last 5 months is my favourite oversized men's shirt that just happens to have a screaming vampire on it.

I saw it months ago on the Fright Rags website when I was hunting for wardrobe for the film. I wanted my character to have a major selection of horror related outfits/posters/nic nacks etc. I held off getting it because I didn't feel it went with the rest of my now (sort of grown up) life. But hell, it's a very cool shirt! And Fright Night did help to inspire our film (which never did get finished)

Happy New Year!

So my new year is off to a roaring....."fart".....that about covers it. Been trying to book a flight to Edmonton, but having all sorts of crap happen. Even though my credit card has more then enough on it, there seems to be crap happening with the bank. Never booked a flight before so I am easily confused. My travel date has been changed from next week to two weeks from today. My sister is continuing to have medical problems and is being given the run around from doctors. And my sl life is getting my panties in a bunch. A second SL job along with new sl neighbours that are bimbos.
