I'm a work in progress. So are you. That's a good thing.
You know you have some SERIOUS camel toe when you have to invest in this;
Ladies & Gentlemen, step right up and check out the latest must have. It's the 'Camel Toe Cup' from a company called Smooth Groove!!!
Like a sports cup for dudes, the ladies stuff this polymer cup down the front of their too tight pants/ leggings to avoid that unsightly 'moose knuckle' look. According to sources: "There are three different colors to choose from (black, white, and clear), and it comes in a "discreet" satin pouch. It's washable, thank god, and they say it's "extremely comfortable.""
Here's a revolutionary thought... why not wear looser fitting pants??? Or perhaps longer t-shirts???
I'm thinking that idea just earned me a gold star sticker. ;D
I'll admit it. I'm kinda hooked on the iPhone game called 'Words With Friends.' It's exactly like Scrabble and you can find your friends (through their username) and challenge them to a game, OR you can just play a perfect stranger (the game finds a random opponent for you). I've ended up playing people from New York, to London, to Hawaii and everywhere in between.
So this is my question: What's the deal with all the WEIRDOS playing this game??? You see, you have the option of chatting or making comments to the people you play. I usually make comments of something along the lines of 'Nice move!' or, 'Wow. Didn't see that coming.'... you know, stuff like that. Other players will comment in the same manner, but once in a while, you get an extreme weirdo. I've had everything from 'I bet you're hot. What do you look like and what are you wearing' (to which I responded, 'T-shirt with yellow armpit stains and MC Hammer pants. Oh! And I'm also waxing my 'stache right now.') to, 'Hurry up and make a move you whore.'
Yeah. People can get weird or bitter, but THIS ONE really takes the cake! This is an actual picture (of my phone) of a conversation that took place through the game 'Words With Friends'. My opponent's comments are in green and mine are white (I smudged out my username... for privacy reasons. Just keepin' it real ;). The whole conversation is both pathetic and yet hilarious all at once. See???
Note the user name of the person I played. If you're out there, you've got some serious issues. Oh! And you sincerely SUCK at this game. Invest in a dictionary. I believe there's an app for that. Tee hee! ;D
Just in case you don't regularly check out the 'Free Single Of The Week' on iTunes (like I do....NERD!), today's download is the bees knees.
It's from a British band called 'Graffiti6' and they've just released their debut album called 'Colours' (notice the spelling??? Nice). They've got this soul / pop/ funk sound. If you like Jamie Lidell you'll enjoy this. The tune is called 'Free' and here's what it sounds like:
The guy kinda looks like Nick Lachey from 98 Degrees... no? But don't hold that against him.
Sooooo, you likey? Download it off iTunes for NADA today :)
Vancouver songstress Adaline has been doing pretty well for herself lately. She's got a new album out called 'Modern Romantics' and to add to her already SOARING level of coolness, you can include the fact that the-one-and-only Hawksley Workman produced her album. (GAH!)
Well now, you can download an uber cool tune by Adaline, for free. Gratis. Nada. I've already listened to it and I've gotta say, I'm sooooo proud of our little Adaline!
She's been featured in TODAY in an article on Spinner Canada Online. Click HERE to check out the article about her and to get that free download into your hot little hands.
...cause Honey Badger just don't give a.... but apparently YOU DO! A Canadian production company called 'Six Eleven Media' is currently working on a Honey Badger comedy, based on this viral video. They'll be pitching the show to networks next month. Good Luck to them. YAY CANADA!!!
Lauryn Hill & Bob Marley ~ Turn Your Lights Down Low. These two make beautiful music :)
Lil Wayne ~ How To Love - I might have chosen this song before, but what can I say? I just can't get enough of it!
Lily Allen ~ LDN - Such a wicked song. Funny story. My nephews (they're 7 & 8 years old) love this song. The problem is, the only line they can remember is '...then I see it's a pimp and his crack whore'. FAIL!!!
LMFAO ~ Sexy & I Know It - Cause this tune is awesome and you know it... Catchy. Bouncing shlong in video is kinda awkward though.
Duck Sauce ~ Barbra Streisand - FUN!!!! Cool cameo from the drummer from The Roots!
One of the biggest douchebags on TV is back, with yet another crappy infomercial you can't stop watching. Vince is now trying to peddle you a 'Schticky'. This video makes me want to punch him in the throat, and yet I can't look away...
Ugh. Why do I torture myself (and you)??? Sorry.
To make it all better, here's a hilarious remix of his old 'Slap Chop' commercial. This will have you saying 'You're gonna love my nuts' around the office all day today.
Some of your favourite sites are taking a hiatus today. Why? In protest of SOPA /PIPA. What's that, you ask? Well, it's an anti-piracy bill they're trying to pass in the US. It all comes down to internet censorship/ control. Even Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud and Blogs would be affected if this law is passed. Here's a helpful video to explain what it's all about.
Remember Ted Williams? You know... the homeless man from Columbus, Ohio, with the 'golden voice'? In case your mind needs some jogging...
Yeeeaaahhhh.... so what happened to the dude? There was a bit of controversy after he was thrust into the limelight (drugs, alcohol, family issues, etc).
Well it's been one year since Ted's life was flipped upside down. Wanna see what he's up to? Check this out.
Snagged this from a Facebook friends page. It's brilliant!
There's a site out there that will tell you what song was number one on the Billboard charts the exact day you were born.
AWESOME!!! Here's the link to the site, and YES, it's 100% safe.
The number one song the day I was born was....
Ha!!! Not bad huh???
I'd loooooooove to know what your REAL birthday song is. Please leave your comments. I'm looking forward to checking them out :)!!!
So here's the deal.
Their baby girl was born on Saturday.
Blue Ivy Carter.
Papa Jay-Z has already written a song for his new baby girl. It's full of 'bitches, crystal, and f-bombs'... just kidding!!!
Here's the new tune. It's called 'Glory'. Not bad! Whatcha think???? Do you likey or is there too much Gouda???
It's official, singer & actress Zooey Deschanel has filed for divorce from Death Cab for Cutie's lead singer, Ben Gibbard. Deschanel filed for divorce on December 27 2011. The papers list the date of their separation as October 31 2011 and cite "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their break up. SAD.
The pair – who tied the knot in December 2009 – were married for a total of two years. Truth be told, I didn't even know that they were separated. A source close to the couple says that the split was "mutual, amicable and there was no cheating involved".
When you think about it, we never actually saw the couple together.... ever. Ah well. Another celebrity marriage bites the big one.
Wait a minute..... Do you know that this means???
It means that we can look forward to an AWESOME new album from DCFC featuring more amazingly heart wrenching songs.
Hey! I'm just trying to look at the positives here!!!
Here's a song that Ben Gibbard will NOT be singing for a while. Awwwww :(.....
UK prime minister David Cameron is now pushing to to have age ratings and warnings listed/posted on music videos. He says, " he wants new regulations to stop "the commercialisation and sexualisation" of childhood" (thanks for the quote NME!).
At first I was all...WHAT?!?!?! But now, as I think about it more carefully, I kind of agree. You see, I'm an aunt, and if my two nephews were to sit and watch... say... this music video with me, they'd have a lot of questions. They're at that age where they question EVERYTHING.
At the same time, I'm also at a point where I'm tired of how 'PC' everything has become. There's always SOMETHING offending SOMEONE out there. For example, remember when Saturday Night live used to be... FUNNY???? I'm talking about the days when Eddie Murphy, Molly Shannon, and even Will Ferrel were on the show (obviously, this is a huge span of time). Now, everything is just so... censored and 'sensitive'.
I'm trying out Tumblr. I'm pretty new to it, so if you have any tips or suggestions, please let me know!
Here's the link to my personal page, if you're interested: http://carmencruz.tumblr.com/
I figure I'll start out by posting a new song of the day every day, and then slowly go from there. This internet stuff can be pretty confusing, no?
It's official, Elton John has a movie about his life in the works. The biopic is reportedly going to be called 'Rocket Man' and Elton is working with the author of 'Billy Elliot' (Lee Hall) on the script.
In a recent interview, Elton said that his number one choice to play him in the movie is.... Justin Timberlake!!! Why, you ask? "Because played me before in a David LaChapelle video of 'Rocket Man' and was superb."
Here's the video in question. Sadly, it's the best version of it that I could find. Thoughts???
Footage of Bono busking in Dublin over Christmas has been popping up all over the net. The superstar was joined by singers Damien Rice and Glen Hansard. *Mental Note: Must go to Dublin*
The trio were helping others get into the holiday spirit by singing Christmas carols. How awesome is that? BUT... the funny thing is that police showed up and tried to get Bono and the boys to 'move along'. The cops didn't recognize him! Buuuuurn.
Ah well.. here's a couple videos of the amazing street busking moment.
Oh how I adore Bono!!!!
While you're right in the middle of moving, you're punched in the stomach with a brutal flu. You're completely knocked out, sweating, sleeping and coughing. Then, to add insult to injury, you find out that you won't have cable or internet until the first week of January (did I mention that this is all happening during the second week of December?). Ladies and gentlemen, this is what I call the Yuck Trifecta. Moving, surrounded by taped up boxes, sick, and without any form of entertainment. This was the hell I went through last month.
Just moments ago, I finally had my cable and internet hooked up. I'm sitting in front of my computer with my TV blasting, trying to take it in all in at once. I'm like a doe eyed kid on Christmas day.
Lucky for me, I was healthy enough to spend Christmas with friends and loved ones (my first Christmas away from my familia!) and I had an amazing time. At the moment, I'm still recovering from an insane New Years house party. Hola 2012!!!! Here's to an amazing year filled with love, happiness and success... even if the world is going to end... ;D.
