Tuesday Tidbits: Previews of NOAP

September 16th, 2014

tuesday tidbits

I didn’t sleep well last night.

And while it could be that I have the sleep pattern of a psychopath, have 22,000 items still left on my to-do list, trash on trash television programs patiently waiting for me on my DVR to watch, 2 books I’m currently reading, wondering what James Franco is up to in a very moment, etc. etc. etc.

Last night, however, I’m going to blame lack of  sleep on this bitch.

conjuring-doll-annabellegiphyYou’ve probably have started to see previews for the upcoming film Annabelle, which is the prequel to The Conjuring and follows the story of a couple who begin to experience supernatural incidents involving a vintage doll shortly after their home is invaded by satanic cultists.

Now, listen. It’s known I have a fiery love for all things Horror films, but let me have a moment of honesty.

Antique dolls creep me out. I can watch Child’s Play all day and not blink an eye, but those old school dolls? Hand me my purse, because I’m out.

My spirit still isn’t right from Dead Silence.

Now here comes this damn doll’s cousin Annabelle twerking all over my peace with her creepiness. To me, she was the scariest part of The Conjuring and she was only in the film for a grand total of probably about 15 minutes. She scared the hell out of us, got her check and bounced, and returning to terrorize in 30 seconds or less until next month. And yes, I’m the girl that changes the commercial every time she arrives on my television and puts on the channel with all the church programs or The Disney Channel. Annabelle wouldn’t DARE step in Mickey’s house with that shit.

Arriving in my face also, is another story.

bitch slap

Don’t make me call Chucky, girl.

Despite my punk ass feelings toward her, will I be in attendance for the Annabelle premiere?

DUH.

Scream out in theaters with this idiot when Annabelle hits theaters everywhere October 3rd.

Twitter & Blue Ivy Saved Us All: The 2014 VMA Recap

August 25th, 2014

The MTV Video Music Awards are nowhere close to what they used to be. We know this. But every year we continue to watch and wait for at least one hair flipping glimmer of hope, and until then we turn to social media to help cope through it all.

If you experience in particular live Twitter, you must so during an awards show. There’s barely anything in this world better. Except for alcohol after a rough day. And day’s off.  Early pay day deposits. Seeing an ex do bad without you.  A really good ass cheese platter. And an actual life.

Okay, so there’s a lot still greater but there’s no other way to spend the end of summer than wasting 3 hours to watch one of the most talked about events every year and The Beyonce’ concert VMAs was once again leaving topics, and tweets, up for discussion.

Thank you, Mr. Williams

August 12th, 2014

5cd92fb354aaaedfa83a0a239af6c576As the news is fully out there, the world is still rocked by yesterday’s announcement of the death of actor, comedian, screenwriter and producer Robin Williams. Williams for most has been admired and raved for his incredible range of talent in films like Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, Patch Adams, One Hour Photo, and an on and on going list that could NOT be completed without Mrs. Doubtfire.  Robin Williams’ work has touched the universe in one way or another for his talent, but most importantly what is most tragic is that he seemed like a genuine, humble, all around nice human being despite the fact that he publicly and privately battled his own personal demons. Celebrity deaths are nothing rare but this, like the death of Paul Walker and Marilyn Burns to name a few, truly hit me in one way or another. For Robin, as one of my favorite actors it was never a piece of work of his I didn’t like or completely get lost in–he had the amazing ability to make us laugh, root for him and even in some works scare us all at a drop of a hat(If you haven’t seen One Hour Photo rent it NOW). And always taught those who looked up to him it was okay to be weird and eccentric and forever think outside of the normal. Thank you, Mr. Williams, may your talents forever live on and may you finally be at peace.

Shade vs Reading

January 21st, 2014

Real-Housewives-of-AtlantaI LOVE my fair portion of trash reality television, and Real Housewives of Atlanta definitely does not miss the plate. This season thus far has been an interesting one with Porsha’s divorce, Mama Joyce’s hatred for Todd, and whether or not Kenya actually did offer to “suck Apollo’s wee-wee”. I wish I was making some of this shit up.

On one of the more recent episodes cast member Nene Leakes brought along one of her friends Mynique to a group gathering where she was later then schooled on the fundamentals of throwing shade and reading.

No, not that kind of reading.

  • Shade: acting in a casual or disrespectful manner towards someone a.k.a “throwing shade”.
  • Read: To tell someone about themself, as in “Don’t do it bitch, I will read your ass”.

Bitch don't comeShade throwing and serving a good read–you either know it or you don’t. Personally it’s not something that can be taught, especially in the span of a few minutes and then be put up against almost the entire cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta–because chances are you won’t be ready.

However, let’s get with the Gawds and break this all down: Get your glasses handy because the library is officially open, honey chile.

R.I.P. Paul Walker

December 1st, 2013

dcb872f976156247a11a01e34c45aefeIn today’s world, death is something we’ve come to know all too well with American tragedies, countless men and women losing their lives fighting for the continued freedom of our country, and the passing of people who let into our homes and our lives on a regular basis, celebrities.

I think most of us have all had a famous face we cherished for one reason or another, and felt a sad loss upon hearing they were no longer on earth with us. From Elvis to Bette Davis to James Dean to Marilyn Monroe to Aaliyah to Heath Leger to Michael Jackson–their losses hit individuals in mourning and shock as if they’d lost an old friend.

Yesterday evening it was announced and confirmed that actor Paul Walker and driver partner Roger Rodas, had died in a fatal California car crash after attending a charity event. Most of us remember Walker from the Fast & The Furious movie franchise as former undercover cop Brian O’Conner–guys loved him and girls swooned over him. Personally I was a huge fan of the first film and Walker’s baby blues but overall just because he seemed like one of the few Hollywood actors who had a decent head on his shoulders–never was really in the tabloids, kept his private life to himself, always was involved in countless charities and seemed like a very nice person to interview.

It’s always the good ones that seem to go entirely too soon.

Paul Walker was 40 and is survived by his only child and daughter, Meadow, who is 15. Thoughts are with his and Rodas’ family, friends, castmates/crew and everyone else saddened by this tragic news.
