OMG! I actually Like a Mikey Cyrus song!

OMG I'm so worried.
Just realized I actually like two Miley Cyrus songs! Well ok I really like....gasp...Party in the USA.

 I just kiiiiinda like We Can't Stop

Although the vid for We Can't Stop is not so great. Too random and going for shock. The vid is like a car wreck. Disturbing yet fascinating. 

But I must admit, Miley does look good. More grown up but I gotta say she comes off really .... Ho-ish?? Lol okay I guess I should spell it whore-ish but that seemed so harsh. 

So why do I like Party in the USA....who knows, well actually the lyrics for the chorus are everyone's experience:
So I put my hands up
They're playing my song,
And the butterflies fly away
I'm noddin' my head like yeah
Movin' my hips like yeah
I got my hands up,
They're playin' my song
I know I'm gonna be OK
Yeah, it's a party in the USA
Yeah, it's a party in the USA
 Come on.... how many of us have been somewhere and then "Your Song" comes on and you start noddin' your head and movin' your hips? Right, it's an experience we can all relate to. So yeah, I like that song.

Lol. I loved when she said "and a JayZ song was on". And I'm thinking "Whoa, Miley listens to JayZ?" Turns out, no she doesn't or at least didn't. When she mentioned Britney, I just thought "Uh no!" and inserted another name. 

Although, I'll let you in on a little secret....come closer....I do like at least one Britney song. I even own it. Shhhhh! Keep it to yourself. 

As for We Wont Stop, well, like I said, I kinda like the song, but it's not one I'm going to find myself singing spontaneously. It's kind of a mellower Party in the USA but the video is waaaay different! Much raunchier....some might say more "adult". I love Miley's new look in it. The shorter hair dyed blond and the more grown up make up but other than that ..... I wished she'd get the sneer off of her face. As for the song itself, the lyrics are once again kinda universal. Not all of them but the:

Its our party we can do what we want
Its our party we can say what we want
Its our party we can love who we want
We can kiss who we want
We can live how we want

Yeah, I can see how that would be appealling. And the first verse....

Red cups and sweaty bodies everywhere
Hands in the air like we don't care
Cause we came to have so much fun now
Got somebody here might get some now
If you're not ready to go home
Can I get a "Hell, no!"? (Hell no)
Cause we gonna go all night

Till we see the sunlight alright

Lets admit it, the hightlighted lines have been said or sung for years. And then there's this line:

So la da di da di, we like to party

Helloooooo...... shades of Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick!! Y'all do remember that...right??

Anyhoo, end of rant...or whatever! Y'all have a Happy New Year! 
and remember....
La-di-da-di, we like to party
We don't cause trouble and we don't bother nobody!

La Di Da Di with Snoop Dogg and Doug E. Fresh........start at 1:24 to just hear song

Movie Marathon Suggestion #1 - Clue, Murder by Death, And Then There Were None

So, it's the holidays.
Normally, I don't watch much tv and definitely not many movies but I had some extra time on my hands and ended up watching one or two of my fave movies.

Yeah, I rarely watch new ones cause my favorites are so much fun.

Anyhoo, I started thinking about movies that go together and decided to put up a few movie marathon suggestions. (Yep, I apparently have nothing better to do)

Why do I think these movies go together?

Because in all of these films, there are a group of people who mysteriously come together at some creepy house and suddenly folks start dying.
(...and what do we learn from this? If you're invited for a weekend at a creepy house and you don't know why, heck, even if you do know why ....DON'T GO!!)

All three movies are mysteries. The first two are comedies and the last is a drama. You may have guessed that I really like mysteries, yep, and I definitely prefer comedies.

Movie #1
Clue  a 1985 Comedy/Mystery about Six guests who are invited to a strange house and must cooperate to solve a murder mystery. Loosely, based on the game Clue.

This guy put together a youtube vid called Clue the Movie in 5.5 Minutes. I must say he did a good job. My only complaint is the horrible background music he added. Very annoying.

 Movie #2
Murder by Death

 a 1976 Comedy/Mystery written by Niel Simon about Five famous literary detective characters and their sidekicks who are invited to a bizarre mansion to solve an even stranger mystery.
I loved this one because of the parody of some of my favorite detectives....Sam Spade, Nick Charles, Miss Marple, Hercule Piorot and okay the last guy confuses me. Not sure if he's supposed to be Charlie Chan or what???

Movie #3
And Then There Were None, a 1945 movie, based on a novel by Agatha Christie, about a group of ten people who are invited to an isolated island, only to be killed one-by-one.

Omg! Here's the whole flippin' movie!

Hope you decide to watch a few of these. They're lots of fun! Tootles!

What to do when you're awake at 2am.....

So, what do I do when I wake up at 2am and can't go back to sleep? Well, after I finished the book I was reading, I accidentally hit the Netflix app on my Nook and ended up watching TedTalks. No, I have no idea how it happened. But it doesn't matter cause I found some good ones so I thought I'd share them with you.....

Tony Robbins asks Why We Do What We Do

This one is quick and funny but probably true. Derek Sivers presents How to Start a Movement

Jane McGonigal The Game that can Five You 10 Extra Years of Life

I love the way Larry Smith delivers this talk. Why You Will Fail to Have a Great Career

And I'll stop with this one by Simon Sinek: How Great Leaders Inspire Action
