Your Song

A friend of mine came over last night and told me to check out this English singer/songwriter, Ellie Goulding. I immediately fell in love with her sweet voice and her quirky beauty. She covered Elton Johns, “Your Song”. Her version almost brought tears to my ears. What a cutie! Check her out! – Christina XO

Lately, I’ve been bombarding my creative juices with a lot of movie watching and writing. I’m trying not to spend money and have become a hermit until the funds start flowing in again. My best friend the past couple of weekends has been my computer, the movie theatre (thank you Cineplex Odeon gift card) and my t.v. I’ve been catching up on old movies and dvd collections that I’ve been meaning to watch. This past weekend I watched all three Godfather’s. I’ve seen them when I was younger but have had the urge to re watch them and appreciate the amazing film making of Francis Ford Coppola. I must say the Italians know how to make a film. Then again, I am bias! I found this You tube clip of Al Pacino’s audition, the early days of his career and found it inspiring. A young unknown actor snubbed by the networks but admired and persisted by the director. Sometimes you just need to trust that when the role is right it’s right. – Christina XO

ThE goOd oL dAys

For those who know me, I’m a very nostalgic person. You give me a picture of when I was 4, I’d probably start to cry. Show me a picture of my grandparents dancing like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire …TEARS. One of my favorite things to do when I go back home is flip through the  many albums that my dad put together over the years. I’m not talking about just one or two but A LOT. They range from the early 70’s (my favorite) to the present day. I look at the days of when I was a wee little peanut, the things my family did, what I wore, old class photos, who we spent time with and always wipe the drool from my mouth as I gaze at the cool old vintage clothing that I wish had been saved for me. I laugh at the fact that my brother and I looked like twin boys and savour every moment down memory lane. I love it! No one can take that lane away. It will always be there and I will continue to cherish the special memories I’ve had. “In My Life” by the Beatles is a very special song to me. I think anyone who hears it can attach their own personal memories to it. I was just listening to it when it reminded me of when my best friend who I consider my sister, Julie (sevendollarpants) made me a video montage for my 16th birthday which were pictures of us through the previous pubescent years. This one is by far one of my all time favorites. This picture was taken at my birthday party. I’m a few years older than Julie. There was a moment in our childhood when I asked her mom, “Can I hold the baby? Here,we are both sporting fashionable plastic rings and bracelets. I, in my Strawberry Shortcake slippers, tomato pants, and heart T-shirt smiling with the gap between my teeth and the cowlick  in my hair. And Julie a.k.a “Noopy” sheepishly grinning to the side, her cute little mushroom cut hair  and sporting a tomato jumper and fuzzy red socks. We probably planned our outfits. Ahhhh the good ol days – ……..I can’t help but laugh every time I look at this picture. – Christina XO

Hittin The Town

Last night I finally got to see, “The Town” directed by Ben Affleck, staring Ben Affleck, Rebecca Hall, John Hamm (Woo hoo) and Jeremy Renner (new crush). I was on the edge of my seat and held my breathe a few times during the film.  From the direction to the acting, I thought the film was really well done. Way to go Ben Affleck! The Town is a dramatic thriller about robbers and cops, friendship and betrayal, love and hope, and escaping a past that has no future. In the Boston neighbourhood of Charlestown, Doug MacCray is the leader of a crew of ruthless bank robbers. But everything changed on the gang’s last job when they took bank manager Claire Keesey hostage. Questioning what she saw, Doug seeks out Claire. As their relationship deepens, Doug wants out of this life and the town, but now he must choose whether to betray his friends or lose the woman he loves. Ch ch ch check it out! – Christina XO
