Book: Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events

with one comment

I read all 13 of the Lemony Snicket books and I am really proud. But in all reality it wasn’t that hard because A, they were children books and B, they were really freakin’ good. The Series is about 3 kids Violet, Klaus and Sunny Bauldalaire and basically a series of unfortunate events that occur after a super tragic one. I won’t tell you but if you saw the movie you already know (really good movie surprisingly too btw)

Even though they are kids books, its really fun for adults to read too, the writing doesn’t seem at all directed to young kids, (some of the terms used I had to look up) and its just really like dark and twisted yet funny and sweet at the same time. Isn’y it crazy that it could be all those things? but it really is, thats what makes this series so great and totally worth the time to read all 13 books.

Website: JibJab

leave a comment »

So I think most people remember JibJab as the site that made all those crazy political parodies with all the politicans with huge heads and puppet jaws. Well now I think they still make those movies every once in awhile but one of the coolest things thay have done is taken that technology and given the audience more of a chance to be interactive with it.

So now those crazy shorts and silly cartoons you used to watch on JibJab, you can put yourself and your loved ones into them too! Just to warn though you will either find it rediculously hilarious or just really creepy, but I think there is no way that it won’t get some type of reaction out of you, esp if you cast yourself or anyone you know in Snoop Dogg’s Sexual Seduction video. Its funny but you just feel kind of weird… Anyways to show an example I have included a link to a video starring my dog, fiance, my future mother-in-law, an eyeless stuffed monkey and a small cameo of me screaming. enjoy!

Music:Nellie McKay

leave a comment »

When you first hear Nellie McKay play her intro on the piano, you think of the squeaky clean music of the 50’s until she starts to sing and you hear her lyrics, and then you realize her words are scathing.

Nellie McKay has a way of giving you a simple catchy tune and blowing your mind with the words that come out of her mouth. Everything from gay marriage to alcholism to President Bush, she slices through it all with her razor sharp wit. My recomendation is to start with “Sari”, “David” “Respectable” by then you should be hooked.

Movie:Kamikaze Girls

leave a comment »

What do you have when you get a high school self- proclaimed lolita who reluctantly befriends a teenage biker chick? Why, you get the madness that is Kamikaze Girls of course!
 

 

The movie which is based off the novel by Novala Takemto is about the clashing of two completely different worlds and the crazy antics that occur.

The whole plot is completely rediculous and hilarious but my favorite part is the cinematography. The colors are so bright, the effects are so cool, the whole film is 100% eye candy. When all is said and done you feel happy, satisfied and somewhat inspired to kick some butt!
