Well, as it seems it's been forever since I've updated this, it is no wonder, as I've been involved with several projects and my own business, trying to get it off the ground. I've been having fun building website homes for them, and have recently revealed them to some friends/family.

I also am penning 'updated' info on my own website, rather than here.

So, to prevent stalkers and lurkers on my site, and just use up FAR too much monthly bandwidth, I'll give my real life friends the url if they are so inclined to see.

I will probably be all but abandoning this site, since I've had far FAR too many propositions that are just silly and unnecessary (especially by the 15 year olds).

So, thanks for the memories... au revoir... until next time... you may see more posts on the rare occasion, but to be more generalized than my own.

Best Cover... revival [21 Feb 2006|11:11am]
[ mood | crazy ]

This is an excellent artifact from the (I believe) 1960's. It was a record sleeve.
So you can see how much times have changed. or not.

But, nevertheless, is great for a laugh!

Memories Part 2 [07 Feb 2006|12:19am]
Another memory of youth for the record books. This would be a High School Memory... 11th or 12th grade:

Typical Day
6:44am: roll out of bed, brush teeth, and I'm off.
7:02am: roll into class with severe case of bedhead.

I do believe i helped perpetuate the hairstyle. my clothes always looked like I rolled right out of the hamper. but i was VERY popular. The crumpet look was in.
Soon, there were girls and guys all over campus wearing white dress shirts with the collars up, the back end hog tied, and the underwear about 3 inches higher than the beltline - and they called that 'trendy'... why it was nothing of the sort for me. It was all 'necessity' as i was getting all my best sleep just minutes before class.
Sometimes, i was dressed when i went to bed. I learned that students who were too 'dun-up' were just starchy.
....and i had that sort of 'alluring' look about my eyes... little did they know it was because I was half asleep.
My instructors would accuse me of using, or drinking, but of course.. it was my brain just catching up.. They would never smell alcohol about my face, but i would walk around coolly, and disjointed as a black woman, smooth-walking from class to class .. all but awake. I developed a swarthy walk, which was nothing but my knees still yearning for the soft bed.
The best part, is that I succeeded. Got away with it, and made it through with dip. in hand and flying colors.

"Routh" is the word... SuperDuperMan! [05 Jan 2006|03:41pm]
[ mood | mellow ]

:::Celeb Watch:::
Superman's package an issue:
He's "the man of steel." And in the upcoming "Superman Returns," it's clear that super strength isn't the only reason why. In fact, it's not actor Brandon Routh's bulging biceps that are filling Superman's spandex--it's his super-sized manhood, which has Hollywood threatening to digitally castrate him. (OUCH!)
Image hosted by Photobucket.com Image hosted by Photobucket.com
According to British tabloid The Sun, film executives at Warner Bros. have ordered the makers of "Superman Returns" to cover up newcomer Routh's mighty member. It quotes an insider as saying, "It's a major issue for the studio. Brandon is extremely well over-endowed and they don't want it up and out on the big screen. We may be forced to erase his enormous package with digital effects."

As reported, the rumor contradicts an article published in early September by Newsweek, which states that wardrobe artists have fit Routh with a special censor-friendly codpiece designed to hide the contours of his crotch.

A codpiece might protect Routh from the censors, but it does not, apparently, protect him from his co-stars. "He's got everyone touching him all the time," Parker Posey, who plays villain Kitty alongside Routh, says, according to The Sun. "He's lying on his stomach and he's got five people coming up and pulling his underwear down, sticking their hands up the butt of his suit."

Relax, Supes, they're just checking your rocks for Kryptonite.

new Buzz word "KUBB" [05 Jan 2006|12:12pm]
[ mood | content ]

There's a new brit band that has some excellent grooves out, and I'd recommend you visit their site and listen for yourself. If you like the smooth groove, and ready for something different without being intolerable, then KUBB is your ticket.


and the lead singer ain't too bad looking, either!

Going For Broke... on Brokeback Mountain [22 Dec 2005|01:05am]
[ mood | sleepy ]

Don't go broke just to see Brokeback Mountain.

After just returning home from seeing "Brokeback", I wanted to make a few notations about Movie Vs. Book. I am not so sure that Annie Proulx meant for her 58 page story to end up like this. Although there are some nuances which make this a believeable story, the movie definitely feels as more an art film rather than anything groundbreaking. I felt more compelled to 'think' after I viewed "The Matrix" or "8MM" in the theater. A patchy handi-cam seems to capture the opening "Mountainscape" which has a very sparse, almost annoying guitar 'twang'.

Cut to opening scene.... A truck rolls up, and the highly predictable gay tension begins (mind you, it's only 30 seconds into the movie). A seeming buildup toward the tension begins (as about 60% of this movie seems to be built on predictability and stereotyping). There are almost laughable scenes which must have been filmed in sequence (for a few reasons I will mention shortly). There is the cheapened and mainstream ideals of 'what it must be like to be gay' sorts of movements. Ennis Del Mar (Ledger) has performed a great job of putting Proulx's words in motion, showing his anger (on occasion over-emphasizing it). There was mild character development, in which (had you not read the book) you would never know that Jack Twist's (Gyllenhaal) parents knew all along about.... well, see the movie.

Overall, sequencing of the movie HAD to have been either 'in order' or close to it. If this was not the case then they had hired the credited directors (Ossana & McMurtry) half way through the shooting, because the last 30 minutes have a very 'finished' feel. That along with MUCH more improved plotting and execution was quite noticeable. Continuity in the long run seemed good, except for early on, when Ledger mysteriously had not even a scar after falling off his horse and badly marring the side of his face. Kudos to the director in the last 40 minutes for making the last chapters more believeable. Kudos to Kudos to Ledger for making his character believeable. Kudos to BOTH Ledger and Gyllenhaal for "bearing all".

I may buy this DVD when it's released if there is enough commentary and 'deleted scenes' and/or bloopers added to the final product, as I am sure there must have been bounties of. I left feeling slightly disappointed, because this movie did not make the potential it could have achieved. It left me feeling as though it was a bit hurried for production, and above all, did not leave me with much of a feeling of impact as was possible. The gay-bashing scenes could have made more of a statement (as they were by Proulx's account). Unfortunately, this movie could have been a big hitter for the year, but unfortunately, the corners that were cut (unfairly to the actors) will make you feel a little more like flopping, than flipping.

If for anything, see the movie for the beautiful forest scenes, as they definitely are magnificent (Nature scenes, I'm speaking of course!). :)

UCLA ....Exciting Upcoming Event [08 Dec 2005|08:55am]
[ mood | rushed ]

UCLA Live Presents: "A John Waters Christmas"

"The legendary filmmaker returns with his 2nd annual evening of holiday hijinks, featuring electro clash, pro-sex feminist performer Peaches."

READ THE INFO: http://www.performingarts.ucla.edu/

Im very excited to see this come about, because when I talked to JW at his book signing last year, he was mentioning how he was working on a christmas program, and this makes sense. He's also appearing on Here! TV with his Series "Movies That Will Corrupt You" in January 2006 (I am sure that Female Trouble and Pink Flamingos are at the top of the list there). I hope he also uses Trey Parker and Matt Stone's "Bigger Longer and Uncut", because I know a few people who said they thought they were going to hell because they sat throught that movie.....hehe

I'm sooo going to UCLA!

"It's A Disney Birthday" [07 Dec 2005|01:08am]
[ mood | cheerful ]

*Quickie Jot*

Spent my birthday at Disneyland this year. Note to yourself: When they tell you that you need to wear the "Happy Birthday To Me" sticker on your shirt, think of it as a bullseye for the 'cast members' (employees) to heckle you....lol
After about 2 hours, I started covering up my sticker, cuz everytime I went into a shop, they would start announcing its my birthday. One time it came in handy was at the Tortilla Factory at California Adventure (where I got a dozen free hot n fresh tortillas), and also a free drink at one of the concessions (but I think that they were just being nice). The day was nearly over, and I had long forgotten the sticker, and we went on "It's A Small World" and the girl announces to us as we near the dock "Welcome back holiday travelers, please exit to the right.... and Happy Birthday Robert". Then they all started singing happy birthday all over again... sheesh!... Oh - they did an awesome job of doing a holiday "IASM" ride, with the song becoming a Medley "It's A Small World/Jingle Bells".
I kinda felt special, cuz they did the annual Employee Appreciation/Holiday Concert on my birthday (one day only per year). Cool to see Mr Dick VanDyke was the host narrator. He looks great for (what is he - 174 years old now?) his age. He was asked, because he last hosted it in 1965 for Disneyland's 10th Anniversary. His closing comments were "It's great to be back, and I will be back in another 40 years!"
- it was a cool birthday afterall..

.....it's a small world after all... it's a small world after all.... its a small - small world...
