Favorite Song: Let Me Sign (by Robert Pattinson)
I love this song, because it has so many textures in it... It was my favorite song from Twilight. Recently learning that it's actually Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) singing it, is a BONUS tidbit! It's playing in the background when Edward sucks the blood from Bella after James bites her... You can hear he's an English artist b/c of his dialect-- reminiscent of the late great Amy Winehouse; Then you have the parts that almost sound like a Native American chant. It's so raw & gritty. There's passion behind the notes. The words are lyrical accessories, just as they should be.
I don't think Robert Pattinson has the best voice in the world... I've had to listen to a few songs on the low, b/c he loves to scream a lot (ha ha)... And he gets a LOT of notes off... but What I can appreciate about his music, is that he's not a perfectionist. He clearly plays b/c it's something he enjoys. I think that's a beautiful thing.
Favorite Confusion: How Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart look so different than Edward Cullen & Bella Swan...
HOW IS THIS:
THE SAME AS THIS?:
Ok, so photo one is definitely photo-touched but I still don't get it...Robert Pattinson is so much more attractive when he looks like Edward Cullen... Even when he's just himself, but is cleaned way up. I have a few good pics of him-- but he & Kristen must really need a team to turn then from Meth-head Chic to the Beautiful People they play in Twilight. It's like they almost purposely keep themselves hideous on a day to day basis. Robert always looks greasy & shaggy & Kristen always looks like she's on Speed or Crystal Meth. I just don't get it... I mean, although I prefer that the pair of them have the gold or brown eyes from Twilight, I can accept that their natural shade is blue. But can we at least get a fresh shampoo & Blow dry before you hit the Red Carpets? Please?
Favorite Photo: Marilyn Monroe
I have a bit of an affinity for Old Hollywood Glamour Girls. Audrey Hepburn, Brigette Bardot, Betty Paige, Olivia D'havilland, Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe... I love them all! I love that in their era, it was part of good grooming & practice to be a "lady". There was great effort put into how a woman carries herself. There was an emphasis on sex appeal, yes... but it wasn't overly trashy- at least not by today's standards. I wish I could've been a part of those days. As "oppressed" as women thought they were then, I think we're more oppressed now. We're not routinely shown our wealth by the way people treat us, anymore. It's more of a "free-for-all"... Hmph. Food for thought...
Favorite Book: Bond Girl By Erin Duffy
Before starting the read for MabooKlub (my Facebook Bookclub, that is taking off to astounding start)- I started Bond Girl! Already, I can tell I'm going to love this book. I haven't matched a face to the main character (Alex), yet-- but I know as more of her personality comes out, I'll be able to assess who should Play "Alex", should this ever be made into a movie. So, I'm excited who will play my dark haired, green-eyed tom-boy turned beauty. I'll let you know, when I've finished.
Favorite Look: The Alika Circle Dress by Bettie Paige
You all know me... I love vintage style that can be updated. I love this Alika dress from Bettie Paige for a holiday party! She looks classically beautiful in this festive red dress with the form-fitting bodice with bow. I love the fishnet detail in the shoulders. It shows a little bit of skin without being too revealing. I would imagine this would flatter any body type! I love the nod to 1940's fashion!
Favorite Laugh: Job Duties
Favorite Truth: Single does not always equal available...
I've found myself more times that I thought, being single, but not really available. I'm a different breed than a lot of folks. If I'm in between relationships, I actually give myself time to heal after a break up, rather than jumping from one man to the next, etc... It's kind of sad how quickly folks jump in & out of people's lives, these days. I'd rather have a handful of meaningful relationships, than a whole laundry list of disappointments... Just saying.
Favorite Holiday Touch: Book-mas Tree!
I thought this was so creative! I can't imagine how long it too to find the exact right size book to pull this off. I'd love to see this in a library somewhere! I'm especially fond of it, because of my love for reading!
Well, Happy Holidays to all of you! I hope you'll find peace and love over the holidays & throughout the year!
Merry Christmas! & Happy Holidays!
