IF I COULD GIVE “GIRL ON FIRE” FOR THE MOMENT, JENNIFER LAWRENCE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE, IT WOULD BE …..


Jennifer, if you are going to share a piece of twinkie-like food with another person then make sure that if you want to smell it first then be sure to sniff it at least a millimeter or two away from your nostrils.

I mean that’s just plain sanitary and common sense, honey!

But for the love of god “Girl on Fire” don’t put your microscopic boogery, snotty and liquid makeupy nasty-ass nostrils on a twinkie-like food then sniff the hell out of it then break it in half and offer fellow actor, Liam Hemsworth a piece of it to eat.

P.S.    For those of you out there who are wondering what the hell i’m talking about either rent or Netflix the movie, The Hunger Games.  This nasty-ass scene featuring Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth happens very early in the movie, like within the first 15 minutes.

Now that you are properly schooled I will continue with the blog post.

I mean “Girl on Fire” it’s okay if YOU want to chow down on your own microscopic boogery, snotty and liquid makeupy nasty-ass twinkie-like food infested with your germs because after all it did come from your own body.  Although I don’t know why the hell you would want to but that’s your affair.

But for the love of God “Girl on Fire” be humane and not involve poor Liam Hemsworth in your unsanitary ways!  Girl, have a damn heart!  That poor young man has been through enough!   “Girl on Fire” have you never heard of Liam’s ex, a girl named Miley Cyrus and her vaginal germ infested foam finger?

I mean “Girl on Fire” sometimes you can be so cold-hearted and cold-blooded!

ANGELINA, ADULTERY, ANGELINA, MASTECTOMY, ANGELINA, FREE PASS?


Recently actress, Angelina Jolie has come out to the public about having a preventive double mastectomy after learning that she carries a mutation of the BRCA1 gene which sharply increases her risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer.

In my opinion, I think that she did a wonderful thing!

Because of her worldwide celebrity and her being a mother to many children, I have noticed that more women are not only talking about this uncomfortable and serious subject but they are also doing more research on the BRCA1 gene and learning that they have early options.  And Angelina Jolie should be applauded for this.  And so many individuals have been doing just that including many celebrities and bloggers.

HOWEVER ……….

I have also noticed something else since Angelina Jolie recently came out and that something is hypocrisy.

Just a few years ago, some of the same bloggers and celebrities who are currently singing Angelina’s praises like she is the most perfect human being on earth were also trashing the hell out of her then nasty-ass for not only committing adultery with then very married mega-stud movie actor, Brad Pitt while filming the movie, Mr. and Mrs. Smith but for also not coming clean and telling the truth to the world that they actually had an affair and for not apologizing to Miss Apple Pie America, Jennifer Aniston, Pitt’s former wife.

(P.S.    Hey Angelina and Brad, couldn’t you two at least have take a tattered musty-ass page out of the LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian adultery playbook and apologize and keep talking and singing songs about your affair until people are so fed up with hearing you talk and write songs about your affair that they literally want to blow their brains out at the mere mention of it?)

Anyhoo, back to the uncomfortable issue at hand which is:

When a celebrity gets cancer or any other potentially bad or fatal disease does this wipe out or grant them a free pass for all of the shitty things that they have done in the past? (i.e.    In Angelina Jolie’s case, having a sexual affair with a married man.)

Hmmm, just wondering.

AWKWARD WITH A CAPITAL A!


Last week in addition to checking out two books at the Dover Public Library I also checked out a couple of dvd’s too.  Yesterday night as the third consecutive winter snowstorm to hit on a Sunday was in full swing I decided to watch one of the dvd’s that I rented from the library.  I was in the mood for a light movie considering the serious snowstorm going on outside so I put in the movie, DodgeBall.

For the most part I thought that it was a decent comedy and a fun takeoff on dodgeball. BUT approximately twenty minutes before the movie ended I got an unexpected shock when then squeaky clean superstar athlete, Lance Armstrong shows up as himself and gives actor, Vince Vaughn‘s character, Peter LaFleur, an inspirational pep talk when Vaughn tells Armstrong that he’s decided to quit the dodgeball tournament. Below are some of Lance Armstrong’s encouraging words to Vince Vaughn from the movie:

“You know once I was thinking about quitting bicycling when I was diagnosed with brain, lung and testicular cancer all at the same time but with the love and support of my friends and family I got back on the bike and won the Tour DeFrance five times in a row and i’m sure that you have a good reason for quitting. So what are you dying from that’s keeping you from the tournament finals? Well, I guess if a person never quit when the going got tough they wouldn’t have anything to regret for the rest of their lives. Good luck to you, Peter, i’m sure your decision won’t haunt you forever.”

People, talk about awkward!

I was literally in my own home physically cringing at Lance Armstrong’s words because I feel so disappointed in him because I was such a big fan of his and ever since he came out on Oprah as a drug abusing cheater I have avoided all media regarding him so it was an extreme shock to see him in the movie, DodgeBall, the last place on earth that I would ever expect to see him.

And people, I also received a second shock after doing some long hard thinking later that night when coming to the conclusion that I probably wouldn’t have even rented the dvd if I had known that Lance Armstrong was going to be in it. And that kind of pissed me off because the other actors in the movie didn’t do anything wrong and illegal like Lance Armstrong and why should they have to suffer because of his mistakes. That’s not fair, that’s not right.

Jeez, what an awkward situation!

I mean some of those encouraging words that Lance was saying to Vince Vaughn in the movie back in 2004 actually had me gasping in disbelief because let’s face it, the probable reason for Lance Armstrong’s brain, lung and testicular cancer was from all of those illegal performance enhancing drugs he did to keep winning the Tour DeFrance.

And people when Lance Armstrong also said to Vince Vaughn in the movie, “I’m sure your decision won’t haunt you forever!” I almost lost it because that has been a constant question on my mind ever since Lance Armstrong finally came clean to Oprah. Does Lance really regret doping? Does he really regret all of the heartache that he caused his wonderful charity, Live Strong, his fans, his family, his friends? Was doping really worth it in the long run now that he has been permanently banned from the cycling world and so many people out there think that he’s trash not worthy enough to be picked up? How come when the going got tough for him why couldn’t he have done the right thing and not taken illegal performance enhancing drugs?

I’ll tell ya’ people, these thoughts were not what I would ever expect to be thinking after viewing a movie called, DodgeBall.

This awkward situation reminded me of a similar situation that happened several years ago. Unfortunately on that night I couldn’t sleep so I turned on the tv and started channel surfing to see if there was anything good on. I eventually landed on the movie, The Naked Gun only to quickly switch the channel a couple of minutes later when O.J. Simpson‘s mug came onto my boob tube for obvious reasons.

I said it before and i’ll say it again, awkward!

P.S. I hate awkward movie moments and fallen superstar athletes!

BACK-TO-SCHOOL TIPS FOR TEENS WITH ACNE!


Going back to school for teenagers can be very difficult but for teens with acne it can be devastating. A couple of bumps on the face can truly be a teenager’s worst nightmare in the image conscious world of high school. It is said that in the United States over 20 million teens have acne and 100 million dollars is spent every year on over-the-counter acne medications. I know that this isn’t a cure for acne but I hope it helps because I also had acne when I was a teenager and I swore that one day I would do something to help other teens with acne. Here is my contribution. In this series of articles, I am going to make helpful suggestions on a variety of ways to make going back to school for teens with acne a more pleasant experience.

Tip 1: Start a Stand-Up Comedy Group for Teens with Acne

When most people think of stand-up comedy, they picture a famous comic like Eddie Murphy, Jerry Seinfeld or Dave Chappelle telling jokes and performing comedy routines up on a stage in a huge auditorium filled with thousands of laughing people.
But stand-up comedy doesn’t have to be that formal. ANYONE can perform stand-up comedy and that includes teenagers! Age doesn’t matter. And you don’t need to have a thousand-plus audience either! All you really need is one other person to give you constructive feedback. Stand-up comedy can be performed anywhere. Teens can perform in their living rooms, in their backyards, at a local park, etc. For teenagers there are so many wonderful benefits to performing stand-up comedy including making new friends, getting support from their peers, it’s a fun and healthy way to boost self esteem, it can help to overcome shyness, improves public speaking skills, it can toughen a person up and make accepting criticism a little bit easier and it can bring much needed laughter into a teenager with acne’s life.

GAME PLAN:

First, find a place to have your group. Teens, ask anyone with decent space and a bathroom. Consider asking a dermatologist if you can use their office, a teacher if you can use one of the classrooms, a parent if you can use their basement, etc. Be creative, don’t give up! Trust me, since this is for a good cause you will definitely find an adult willing to help you out. Always remember that adults used to be teenagers too and some of them had acne as well. Many of them remember what it was like to have acne and would really like to help you out. So have patience, you WILL find a place to have the group.

Once you find a place to have your group, it’s time to put the word out and let other teenagers with acne know about the group. Good places to start are at your school, local teen websites, concert halls, drug stores, fast food restaurants, the mall, etc. The best place to start is with your dermatologist. Most teenagers who have acne usually see a dermatologist from time to time. Ask your dermatologist if you can put up a few flyers informing teens about the stand-up comedy group for teens with acne. Remember to keep the wording on the flyer short and simple. Write in
big and bold letters.
Example: “Are You A Teenager With Acne? Do You Want To Make New Friends And Have Lots Of Fun? Well, Join The Stand-Up Comedy Group For Teens With Acne Today! No Experience Required! For More Info, Call___ Or Send An Email To ___.”
Be sure to leave a contact email address or phone number on each flyer. Next, ask a parent if they can print you off some copies of the flyer at their place of employment or ask a teacher if you can print off some copies of the flyer on the school copier. If those options are not possible, then go to your local printer or the library and print off 10-20 flyers to get you started. Most printers and libraries usually charge 10 cents a copy. So your out of pocket expenses would be one to two dollars. A pretty small price to pay.

Once you start receiving calls and get a couple of teens willing to join the group, arrange an informal party at your meeting place. Ask each teen if they can bring a cheap bag of chips, candy and soda to the party to break the ice and make the atmosphere more festive. At the party decide how long the group should be, what day(s) of the week it should be held on, what time should the group meet, any ground rules, etc. Try to pick times and days convenient for everyone which may be hard, but try anyway. Once all of the arrangements have been made, it’s time to have your first stand-up comedy group.

STAND-UP COMEDY GROUP SUGGESTIONS:

-Tell jokes.
-Partner up and create comedy skits.
-Play the game, Charades.
-If any of the group members plays an instrument, have them write a comedy song and perform it for the group.
-Have each group member pick out a famous or notorious person and have another group member parody them.
-Talk about your favorite comedians or comedy movies.
-Bring silly toys to the group to discuss with the other group members.
-Create new and hilarious things for the group to do at each meeting to keep it fresh and exciting.
-Spread the word about the group. Remember, word of mouth is the world’s best form of advertising.
-Have lots of fun!
-Laugh your butt off!
-Be daring!
-Smile!
-Give constructive criticism!
-Act your age or act immaturely!
-Allow teenagers with clear skin to join the group too!
