So I was watching Sea Patrol You Tube videos the other day and I found this great song used in a montage of clips featuring my two favourite characters. I never keep up with the latest music so forgive me for not knowing who this group was before I saw the video and did a little websearch on Daughtry (http://www.daughtryofficial.com/ca). Here's the fan video it was used in:

I like video games. My dad also has a weakness for them and was known to come home with new games and gaming systems when I was kid. We had an original pong machine and I remember spending hours playing adventure games on the TRS-80 (You are in a tomb, it's dark... Light torch... There's a fearsome mummy coming right at you! Game Over). I was allowed to play Leisure Suit Larry until I got farther than my dad assumed that I could. After that, I was restricted to Kings Quest and Space Quest. I also had a lot of male friends, even as a tween, so I played my share of the classics like Space Invaders and Asteroids.
I recently saw this video and thought that it was a well-done piece:

I've been watching Arrested Development the last week or so and I couldn't help but think of my youth of watching Little House on the Prairie. For those of you who don't know or remember, Jason Bateman played young James Cooper, an orphaned boy who watches his parents die in a horrific waggon accident.
“No, no, no!” You're saying. “Little House on the Prairie was a gentle, lovely family show. Stuff like that never happened.” Really? Go to this link and start the video at the 3-minute mark:

I hardly knew what to do with myself while watching the Oscars last night. At least four women around my age graced the stage and (GASP!!!) they weren't thin! In fact, they weren't even close to what is generally considered “healthy” by today's media.
Because, you see, “healthy” has become the new buzz-word when discussing the unacceptable largeness of women who the media feels have no business being all uppity and successful. Within the next week, several so-called “nutritionists” and “health experts” will appear on various TV shows and news casts all discussing how the larger ladies of the Oscar evening are all going to convince young girls to stop caring about how they look and eat whatever they want. I mean, heaven forbid! Can you imagine a world where women grew up to like themselves and are focusing on something other then their outward image?

Thanks to James for a lovely evening. Not only did he provide a nice spread of food and drink, his impressive knowledge of the movies if helpful for someone like me that doesn't get to the movies to often.

Unfortunately, I haven't seen Jennifer Lawrence in a movie yet. However, I have to say that I found her to be incredibly graceful under pressure. She took a small tumble up the stairs on the way to receive her award and was able to make light of it before doing her heartfelt acceptance speech. I also loved her dress, it was elegant and lovely colours.
