                         “What the eyes see and the ears hear, the mind believes.”-Harry Houdini.

How many of us chase an illusion?  We try to emulate the pictures We see in beauty magazines,the lifestyles We see(or think We see)in media,and generally listen to what were subconsciously being told through popular culture. We are inundated with these fairy tale suggestions. The things you aren’t told upfront is that much of it is  smoke and mirrors(or photoshop) so this means were essentially spectators at a giant magic show. Once it becomes clear that the picture  isn’t authentic, you’ll find that  what you already possess is just as good if not better, then what’s in the elusive fairy tale images being paraded on every available space.(i.e television,magazines,billboards,and in retail spaces)  I’m not sure how it is in other countries, but in America the media is over saturated into daily living. This has caused some negative effects. Such as  unnecessary fear,dieting,and misrepresentation. The fact is, that just like at a magic show,it’s helpful to realize it’s not all realistic. Many people realize this(I hope)but what about those that do not?   It takes a certain amount of confidence and experience to not fall prey to these tactics. It’s important to be comfortable in your own skin and not care so much about what other people think. When you possess these things,you’ll find that you’ll be more successful in life. With confidence comes success,and there  aren’t too many things better then marching to the beat of your own drum. True beauty  is not contained inside the pages of  a beauty magazine. However, there is beauty abound in  your own brand of unique. A  homogenized World full of  models would  be terribly boring,so do your best not  to look like one. It’s in the perceived “imperfections,” that We  can find perfection. When you truly see the  unique beauty that you possess(i.e like yourself!) the  media  chatter begins to die down to a barely audible whisper. In other words you’ll be much happier and  your corner of   the  universe will be much  nicer!

It’s amazing what happiness  will generate in your life. I have found that happiness attracts positive  situations,good people,more confidence,and success!  Once your able to tune out(the media junk) and get on your own wavelength, happiness becomes a renewable resource.

Cheers and tune out!

Vol de mort

..French Translation: Stealer of the dead. Not bad Rowling. I will admit I didn’t read all the books, I read the first and then saw a few movies and skipped right ahead to Deathly Hallows. I do that sometimes (see also: Dexter, season 1 episode 1 and then… all of season 7 in a day) Anyway for all the good and bad reviews arguing that the plot basis is that of any other fantasy story (Good vs. Evil.. etc etc.. oh and those who have actually compared it to Lord of the RIngs!) It is what it is, and for that it is well done. The books (um… what I did read ahaha) were legible and didn’t blather on (except for the camping scene apparently) and it got kids to read ! alot ! So good. I decided to do a small piece on our three main characters.. Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson. We have basically watched them grow up (and continue to grow) on film. I couldn’t help but notice Rupert getting the man-boy body/awkwardness going on… its okay though, I think he is cute. Daniel Radcliffe has since become a sensation on Broadway (Take it off! kidding!) so that is all well and good and Emma Watson has grown up the pretty English girl that she is, modeling and attending school.. and also has lamented she can’t find a date (dearie, boys are dumb… And probably intimidated by your hotness and all your money, their loss!!)

Also here is an old review by Stephen King of Harry Potter. There are so many reviews with different view points but I decided a reputable author is what I would rather choose to include, enjoy: King me !

Also here is an interesting development (from 2010 ahaha), Scorsese talking Grint.. ?! The title hints at Grint being the new DiCaprio (having that hidden potential) Hmmm… Link up here———> oh boy oh, you like a Leo DiCapriooo oh

What do you think?

I think Grint has definitely grown up to be an unexpected total cutie but.. a new Leo? Can’t say I agree… if you read the article turns out all that Scorsese stuff was heresay, although Grint?!!?! CherryBomb?! Damn. You’ve gotten hot.

Here are some Daniel pictures.. I was too lazy/uninterested to get details on current projects.. google dammit ! hahaha

And of course Emma.. I included a Burberry video.. fitting for her, she is a classy lady…

LOVE this (& I want the coat)

Unlike so many others I don’t believe these three will never have problems being typecast (haven’t so far) Cheers!
