Why So Desperate Ladies?

Okay ladies-it is not 1960 anymore, why are you so desperate to get married? I don't and never will understand this mentality.

(What's wrong with this picture? Do either of them look happy?)

Honestly, what is it about getting married that still has women wanting it with more passion than actually finding someone they actually love?

There are tons of films, 'Bridget Jone's', 'Sex & The City', 'Must Love Dogs' to name a few, that all center females 'desperate' to be married, or re married. Did I miss something and we are back in 1960 and we need a man? It is ridiculous.

There are match making services where woman sign up in hopes of finding that certain someone to get to the alter. UGH.

There is always some woman giving advice on how to keep a man, get a man, marry a man-seriously? Did you not wake up and realize we are living in 2010?

I am not against marriage, or the concept of spending the rest of your life with someone you love, starting a f…

Sports Team Skivvies!

You know what is totally weird to me? Sports teams that have underwear with their logo on it. I mean, really what are they trying to say? 'Our team is worth enough to have on your arse!' Or can you imagine, you are wearing your best Red Sox thongs (and yes thanks to Yawkey Way Store, I know these exist) and you get to crucial moment with the super hot guy you picked up in the pub-because please any girl wearing sports-undies drinks in a pub-he is there, you are there hot and heavy when he sees the Sox logo on your cooch and jumps off you screaming "You are a fucking Red Sox fan? The Yankees are the best team in baseball!" whips off his Levi's (Of course Levi's, he likes the Yankees for Christ's sake) and there he stands in tighty-whiteys with Jeter's number on his Johnson and 'Yankees' on his arse? The whole night is ruined because you had to wear your team on your hoo-hoo.
I just don't see the point in ruining what could otherwise be a fun…

Remember, always give your best.

I just returned from an evening at the WGA and will write about it in my writing blog, still have some work to do, but a friend on FB posted this quote, so I thought I would share it. It seems so relevant to life in the "industry".

R.I. P Pres Romanillos

Pres Romanillos lost his battle with cancer yesterday and today we all mourn the loss of our friend, mentor, and amazing soul that touched the lives of everyone he met.

When I first went to work in Orlando on Mulan, I didn't know that many people, and Pres was one of the first people to make me feel welcome. The day I met him was the day my uncle had killed himself and I literally had only been in the studio one day. I was walking around the hallway in a daze when Pres came up to me like we had been best friends forever, and gave me words of comfort and strength. Then as the summer went on, we hung out during rainstorms on the patio for midday breaks and talked about life, work and he was just always inspiring me to be a better artist and person. He was a supervising animator at the time and I was a nobody, a newbie who had not even completed a year with Disney and only one film, but that didn't matter to him. He saw everyone as equal and treated us that way.

A couple years late…

Quoting Sue From Glee!

OMG people are hilarious.

It seemed to me that everyone on my FB page watched Glee all last year. Last night I posted a quote from Sue that was meant to be funny. I also included the " around it, but yet I got a bunch of nasty messages today.

What is even odder is that most people on my page know that I regularly quote TV shows and films, and that I am never serious. I am shocked that I upset anyone, but I can't really apologize for people's stupidity.

In any case, here are some great Sue quotes!

~ I can't stand the sight of kids getting emotional, unless it's from physical exhaustion.

~ I empower my Cheerios to be champions. Do they go to college? I don't know. I don't care. Should they learn Spanish? Sure, if they wanna become dishwashers and gardeners.

~ I like minorities so much, I'm thinking of moving to California to become one.

~ While they were in there, I told them to go ahead and yank out those tear ducts. Wasn't using them.

~ That's a …

Judging Others Isn't Cool

It makes me really sad that one of the writer groups I joined last year has turned into a judgmental bossy pain in the ass group. I am also sad that people use others for their own gain and then drop them. It also makes me sad that this same group works on making people feel bad instead of promoting growth. I am so disappointed, but this is Los Angeles, being phony is part of the game.

Friday the 16th

What if Friday the 16th was the good luck day, like Friday the 13th is the bad luck day?

Would there be a ton of films with a crazy man in a ski cap running around making people laugh for several sequels for years to come?

Would be embrace the day with a "yay, it's Friday the 16th?"

I implore you to look at this and wonder if today was good luck for you?

It was for me. I actually won the lottery, and yet here I sit blogging, because I love you all so much.

I now dub, Friday the 16th as good luck day!

How Film & TV Has Shaped Who I Am

Okay that may sound a bit silly, but I am being totally serious about this.
When I was in high school, I was really uptight, and totally TYPE A personality, like Jeannie from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Everything had to be just "so" and I was always upset that others got away with things when I followed the rules, then that summer I went to see Ferris Bueller's Day Off and it literally changed my life.



I am not sure if it was the fun Ferris had on his day off, or just his philosophy of, "life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and take a look, you could miss it". But I changed. The way I dressed changed. I became more type B, and a lot more fun to be around. All my friends noticed and I was happier.




Marty McFly taught me another very important lesson-to not be afraid to show my work to people. There is a scene when him and his dad are in the lunch room and he notices his dad writing away and he says, "Get out of here, I didn't know you did anythi…

Twilight Saga: Why Does It Bother You So Much?

Lately there have been tons of posts slamming the Twilight franchise and how much money it has made and I don't understand WHY?

People have actually been saying that, the world must be over, or that people are too stupid now to watch good films. REALLY?

Why? I want to know why does this bother you?

First of all, the films, just like the books, are great. The stories are solid, the acting is fine, the directions is good, it is what it is, a VAMPIRE STORY. You have to suspend disbelief and get into that world to enjoy it. It isn't reality folks, it is fiction.

As well, why are so many men, especially grown me, threatened by Edward? Last year several of my friends were calling him a pedefile, WTF? Really? I mean, really? How stupid is that? Here is a 17 year old that is in love with a 17 year old. Only thing is, Edward (Robert Pattinson) will never get older.

I just don't understand why people are so upset. They only thing I can think of is that they are jealous that they aren…

Things That Make You Go, Hrm?

A downside to the recovering ozone layer?
What could possibly be the downside to this?

and here is what I am wondering, if we, humans, are responsible for creating the hole in the first place with out cars, factories, plastic bottles, and Aqua Net, why is it that this hole is only over Antarctica? And if that is true how is it happening and why hasn't all the snow and ice melted? Apparently we will burn in 5 minutes, burst into flames in 30.

Okay I am kidding, but the article surprised me..in any case...save the planet!

Just sayin!
