Wow, I’ve Been MIA For a While…

An update on my life!

I haven’t posted anything in a while, because I’ve been too busy training for my new summer job. I finally got hired at Casey’s as a waitress. Yay! I’m all done training now, so I can now return to putting more effort into blogging.

In light of my new summer employment, here’s a comic posted on The Oatmeal about farting waitresses. It’s quite hilarious. You can find the comic here.

Celeste and Jesse Forever Review

Celeste and Jesse Forever has so much heart. Written by funny girl Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, who both star in this film, you know you can expect some good laughs.

This film focuses on high school sweethearts who get married, but then their marriage doesn’t end up working out, and Rashida wants to get a divorce from Andy Samberg. It follows the ups and downs of their relationship; their fighting, making up, meeting new people, all while trying to maintain a friendship with each other.

I liked this film a lot because of the rawness of the situations are. The constant push and pull, wanting and fighting of the relationship is as real as it gets. The feelings between them are made strong, and you are rooting so badly for them to get back together and just stop arguing. It’s not your typical romcom, and it’s a movie that should get much more credit than it does. It’s filled with drama, real emotions, tenderness, all wrapped up in a big comedic bow. I have so much more respect for Rashida Jones as a serious actress, and an even bigger crush on Andy Samberg.

It’s available on Netflix, and I suggest you watch it

Please Take a Moment to Read This – Cheerios Takes a Step Forward

There’s a new Cheerios ad portraying an interracial couple, and their mixed-race child. Apparently there’s been a considerable amount of backlash about the ad, and many negative comments were made demeaning the interracial family portrayed.

There were even comments about the ad on Reddit, and to give you an example of the disgusting racial hate, one user wrote: “now all we need is a black character on tv that speaks in full sentences and we’re set!”

Are you kidding me? Apparently the ad on Youtube received too many ugly racial comments, and the comment feature needed to be disabled. It upsets me so much that some people of America, and probably others in the world, are so unaccepting of people who are in an interracial relationship, and it surprises me that there’s that much backlash over this Cheerios commercial.

To be honest, the ad is quite funny, pulls on your heart-strings, and really gives you a sense of warmth. The fact that people are making racist comments, and that this ad is getting so much heat for portraying an interracial couple and their mixed-race child downright disgusts me. Families are families, whether they consist of interracial parents, two mothers, two fathers, single parents, etc. There’s no longer this ‘standard’ to what families have to be like, and people need to start getting the fuck used to it.

Where in the World Is…

…Isaiah Mustafa

Isaiah Mustafa is best known for this hilarious Old Spice commercial, which aired in 2010. When it first aired, this commercial was all everyone could talk about, but nobody ever knew his name. He was commonly dubbed the “Old Spice Guy”, or, in my own words; the beautiful black man in that one commercial. He even made an appearance on Ellen shortly after this commercial aired (no doubt to get people to start referring to him using his real name).

So beautiful, he can turn Ellen straight

Since then, Isaiah had mini roles on television shows such as Chuck and the short-lived Charlie’s Angels Reboot. He even scored a role in Horrible Bosses, and in the biggest flop ever by the Farrelly brothers; The Three Stooges movie. According to IMDB, he only has two little known upcoming projects this year. Shame, but it’s probably because he’s too wonderful for television…

Celebrity faces on classic paintings

Buzzfeed’s list includes Adele, Christian Bale (a.k.a. Batman), Katy Perry, and more.

Personally the Nicole Kidman portrait makes me cringe (although she’s quite lovely in this century).
