When Lucy Met Hillary

Got A Secret?
Lucy Hale & Hillary Clinton
As you all know I am a big Pretty Little Liars fan, and I totes can't wait for Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists

So as you can imagine I did a total WTF?! Double take when I saw this photo of Lucy Hale and Hillary Clinton together at last on the WWW

That's correct minions one of my favorite young actresses from a show I am a fan of, and the person I voted for in the Presidential race together for one brilliant moment in time. My inner teenage girl has been satiated right here right now.

As the story goes the two "bumped into" each other ate BeautyCon in NYC. How's that for a random encounter.

No word on whether they exchanged beauty tips or not....

Mic Drop!

Take 5: Tom Connan


Tom Connan is an artist whose work embodies all aspects of the human condition. 

His latest song and video "Charlie" is inspired by the Charlie Hebdo shooting in Paris. 

For the uninitiated here is the 411 on it:

"Two gunmen armed with automatic rifles stormed the office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, a target for Islamist terrorists since it printed cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in 2006 and 2011, and killed cartoonists and satirists whose names were called out as they were shot dead in turn."
It goes without saying that I had to hit Tom up to "Take 5" for all of you, as in five questions addressing his latest project. You've got this Tom...

MS: Why do you have an affinity with Charlie Hebdo?

TC: I don’t have any direct affinity with Charlie Hebdo, however when the terrorist attack against them happened in 2015, the world was deeply shocked. I was, too. On 9/11, I was a child so I wasn’t able to really understand what it meant. In 2015, I couldn’t believe haters had killed innocent journalists and caricaturists. I was still sleeping when my mum woke me up and yelled at me: ”they killed Charlie Hebdo!”. It is a symbol, as this is the first attack of many that happened since: Orlando, Barcelona, Manchester, Paris… Basically I had written the track “Charlie” a few days after the attack but I didn’t want to release it. But recently, I thought I had to. 
 Charlie (sick mix)

MS: Give me your take on the current state of democracy

TC: I have the impression some people under-estimate the crisis of democracy. Anti-Semitism is terribly strong, as well as homophobia and sexism. Sometimes I feel my mum grew up in a more peaceful time. I may be wrong. But I’m not that sure.

MS: You use skin in the video. You once told me how you love nudity, extrapolate 

TC: For a long time I hated my body. Really. I was almost hiding myself with large clothes, as if I wanted to disappear. I feel better now, and when you feel better about who you are, you want to show it. Completely. It’s my own therapy.

MS: When you give a Rebel Yell, do you want more, more, more?

TC: I’m not sure I understand what you mean, but as far as “Charlie” is a rebel yell, yes, I believe it can reach the unconscious mind, which is my hidden goal. You can do much more with the unconscious than you can with the conscious. Don’t you think? 

MS: Name your favorite song, other than yours at this moment

TC:  was re-watching the old movie “Stepmom” starring Julia Roberts, and I heard that fabulous track “Ain’t no mountain high enough” from Marvin Gaye. Do you know any better song with the same kind of joy and energy? I don’t. It is brilliant. This is music. Other than that, I’m still listening to Jaden Smith’s Idol. Fucking good rap track.

Just Because...Barack & Melania

Did You Hear The One About 45???
Melania Trump & Barack Obama
Just Because it's Earth Day, Just Because of good vibes only & Just Because smiling is contagious. Here is the image that has set the Internet a buzz, Barack Obama & Melania Trump sitting next to each other at former First Lady Barbara Bush's funeral.

This is the happiest one has seen the current "First Lady" publicly in a looooooong time. I guess it took a funeral for that to happen. OK, you get what I mean by that, I hope.

Suffice it to say my main reason for posting this is it made me smile. It is a quite charming image that was very unexpected. "Yes" I like to be disarmed in positive ways.

Which begs the question what did Obama say to her to put such a genuine look of happiness on the always stoic Mrs. Trump's face?

Start the speculation flying by filling in your own blank here _________ ....

Go green, or go home - Happy Earth Day!

Sparkle Kerry, Sparkle

Shine Bright Like A Diamond
Kerry Washington
Good Morning, it's Saturday, time to sparkle minions! Today's spirit animal is Kerry Washington seen here doing a live stage reading of the Scandal finale in Los Angeles.

"Yes" Scandal is now officially over, yet there is nothing that can keep the unsinkable Ms. Washington from sparkling.

What's that? Did I see the series finale? As a matter of fact I DVR'd it and got around to viewing the farewell show last night. What did I think? First off I am not giving any spoilers because I am sure there are those who have not seen it yet. My overall thought was it was quick, efficient and worked.

Series finales are a tricky thing, you will never please everyone. For me the main reason it played is the fact that the theme of the last two episodes was bringing people into the light and that is exactly what the final episode did.

Into the light today peeps and sparkle like the shining star you are...!

Film Buff Friday: The Return of Swamp Thing

From it's campy ad campaign &  cinematic tone. To Heather Lockler's nimble performance, what's not to love about this silly 1989 movie available 5/8/2018? I thought so...
After her mother's mysterious death, Abigail Arcane (Heather Locklear) travels to the Florida swamps to confront her resurrected evil stepfather Dr. Anton Arcane (Louis Jourdan). In an attempt to stave off the effects of aging, Dr. Arcane, assisted by Dr. Lana Zurrell (Sarah Douglas), combines genes from various swamp animals and human beings, creating an army of monsters known as Un-Men. When Abby arrives, Dr. Arcane is hell-bent on taking his own stepdaughter's life in the name of science... that is until she is rescued by SWAMP THING in this must-see sequel to the original cult classic and based on the award-winning DC Comics series!
From the executive producers of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Benjamin Melniker and Michael E. Uslan and legendary cult film director Jim Wynorski (Chopping Mall, Not of This Earth),The Return of Swamp Thing features an all-star cast that includes Heather Locklear (Melrose Place, Uptown Girls), Louis Jordan (Swamp Thing, Octopussy), Sarah Douglas (Superman II, Conan The Destroyer) and Dick Durock (Raw Deal, Stand By Me) returning as the SWAMP THING.

Hump Day & Chill

Bad Boy
Justin Theroux
There's something about Justin Theroux. He first came to my attention as Seamus O'Grady in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, don't judge. 
Seamus O'Grady
Justin Theroux
He was Dylan Sanders' (Drew Barrymore) bad boy, I mean really bad boy, ex-boyfriend. I remember his handsome face, bulging biceps & six pack abs, oh and him being oh so sexy and bad. "Yes" like Dylan I used to gravitate towards the naughty ones. 

Well imagine my delight to find out you can spy what Justin naked in a few other notable things he has done on the WWW. Such as The Leftovers and Six Feet Under - you can see that Jennifer Aniston's ex-hubby is packing large on a link below to the OMG Blog.

Trust, it's real and it's spectacular.

The Real Housewives Of Coachella

Hello Coachella
l-r
Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna & Teddi Mellencamp
In case you have been living under a rock, one of the biggest music festivals in the world, Coachella in Southern California is happening, right now, as it shall be.

What would a high profile event like this be without some of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills I ask you? Answer me, I asked you. I'm waiting...

Half of them managed to hit the festival with chutzpah and of course fashion, "yes" a trio.

Said threesome consisted of Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards & newcomer Teddi Mellencamp. See how stylish they look in the image above, I know you do. I follow all three of them on Instagram and there are some fun video clips of them frolicking at the fest - say that three time fast.

I also follow Erika Jayne who was there DJ'ing for Moschino. None of the abovementioned women attended her set. Things that make you go Hmmmmmmmmm....

Tonight is the season finale of the RHOBH can't wait!

Monday Motivation

Run Jake, Run
Jake Gyllenhaal
It's Monday and I am having a hard time getting motivated, thus my spirit animal for today is Jake Gyllenhaal running, because I need to put a fire under my ass and speed it up already!

Jake's favorite movie of mine is, and will always be the mind bending Donnie Darko. Who could ever forget a film with a menacing rabbit named "Frank" I ask you???

See Jake run, go Jake, go...

Time to follow Jake's lead, c'mon boots start running...

Happy Monday!

Her-Story Made

Destiny Has Arrived
Destiny's Child
A little bird called the WWW chirped in my ear and told me that one Beyonce' Knowles made her-story aka history performing at Coachella last night. "Yes" Virginia and all you other kids out there, Queen B was the first Black Woman to ever headline the desert music festival. Now aren't you happy?!

It was destiny, as in Destiny's Child. That's correct minions Beyonce' was joined on stage by Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland and they said each other's names. 

Wow, what could possibly top that? Glad you asked. Solange took the stage along with Jay-Z and she beat the F#ck out of him again much to the crowd's delight.

OK, I am kidding about that, but they really did join their respective sister and wife to perform. 

You go Beyonce' !!!

2 Cows & A Milkmaid

Milk Me!
l-r
Kunal Nayyar, James Corden & Anna Faris

It's the weekend time for some levity. Well honestly, it's always time for levity, but even more when the weekend has arrived and one needs to decompress.

Behold a photo of James Corden and Kunal Nayyar bringing their milkshake to the yard as a couple of cows with milkmaid Anna Faris giving them udder satisfaction.

Obviously this is for Corden's Late, Late Show....the only question left is why?

Why cows & a milkmaid? Why not two horses & a cowgirl? Sheep with Little Bo Peep? Oh that's right, she lost them, next! You get the idea, keep 'em flowing...

Too much to ponder on a Saturday? Perhaps, but much more fun than the image of Russian hookers giving GS to Jabba the Hutt.

Hump Day & Chill

By The Sea
John Krasinski

Today I thought we would go a tad unconventional in the hunk department. With number one at the box office Movie Star, Director & Co-Writer of A Quiet Place John Krasinski.

Remember when John rose to fame on The Office? I only do by proxy since I never watched it, but I did hear of John

There's something about John, while he is good looking, he is not quite your run of the mill stud. He is like a thinking person's sex object. He has an intelligence that shines through and that is one of the keys to his sex appeal.

While I know Mr. Krasinski has gotten way buffed up since his early The Office days, I chose to use an image of him not shirtless. One I found sexy, as it gives off a pin-up sort of vibe.

I hope you enjoy this view of John as much as I do.

Time to Hump Day & Chill!

Just Because...Giving

We Crave a Different Kind of Buzz...
Prince Harry & Meghan Markle
I stumbled upon this gem today about Prince Harry & Meghan Markle asking those who wish them well to go to...Ha! Kidding. They have actually asked them to make Charitable Donations in lieu of Wedding Gifts.

Personally I love these two, there I said it. Not since Princess Diana has anything "Royal" really grabbed my attention. 

Their obvious happiness is infectious. But what I adore most about them is how philanthropic they are. They hand picked seven charities they would like people to give to in honor of their special day, they are as follows:

CHIVA (Children's HIV Association), Crisis, the Myna Mahila Foundation, Scotty's Little Soldiers, StreetGames, Surfers Against Sewage and The Wilderness Foundation UK.

Giving is something that is important whether it be money, food or time. 

I feel one should give back any way you can. Do I give? For the record "yes" I practice what I preach.

New York State of Mind

10 Years Old
l-r
Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley & Carole Radziwill
Tis Monday peeps and I'm feeling an East Coast kind of vibe. You know that take no prisoners, no BS feeling?

Perhaps it's because I just watched the Season 10 premiere of The Real Housewives of New York City

Nobody does it better than these bitches when it comes to putting it all out there and giving zero f#cks. They make The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills look like rank amateurs in the drama department.

I especially love that the season premiere had a Halloween party in it thrown by the Queen of making it nice Dorinda Medley that will go down in infamy. Why? Because Luann de Lesseps showed up in costume and um, slightly darker skin, as the legendary Diana Ross. Yeah, she got some major cajones! 

Also I must confess, I really like Bethenny Frankel, even though she can get on my nerves from time to time, she is my spirit animal.

To all my fellow RHONY fans I know what you will be doing Wednesday night!

Strike A Pose

Fly High
Sylvester Stallone
"Gonna fly now, Flying high now, Gonna fly, fly, fly" - The Theme From "Rocky"

Surfing the WWW one can without any doubt turn up some amazing and unexpected things. Such as this image of Sylvester Stallone posing with the statue of himself as his character Rocky Balboa from the iconic Best Picture Oscar Winner Rocky in Philadelphia.

"Yes" the film came out in 1976 minions. This being stated it still packs a punch (pun intended) - it's an underdog tale that inspires one to be their personal best.

Let this image be your inspiration. I know it's motivating me as I am waking up and headed to the gym for some boxing, arm work & spin. I am a brute and take no prisoners

Seize the day people! It's the only April 8, 2018 you are you are ever going to have so make it yours!

Enjoy The Silence

STFU!
Emily Blunt & John Krasinski
"If they can't hear you, they can't hunt you" - is the tagline for the release of this weeks addition to the altar of horror, A Quiet Place in theaters, well, now. 

You want to know what's the story morning gory? Well just sit right back and you'll hear a tale...

"In the modern horror thriller A QUIET PLACE, a family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival." and so it goes. 

The film has a whopping 97% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so rare for something of the scare genre.Which makes it a must see for this horror fan. Perhaps this weekend, or...?

It also stars sexy real life couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski who also Directed and Co-Wrote.

I'm shivering with antici...pation! 

But for now, let's enjoy the silence.

"Fight Back" May 1st...

Everything's OK It's...
D.O.A.

Get your punk on...!!!
D.O.A., Canada's legendary pioneering punks who set the bar high for punk and basically invented hardcore, are ready to rip it up on the occasion of their 40th anniversary. They have a brand new album called Fight Back and they are embarking on a worldwide tour to support this impressive new effort. The "Men of Action" are ready to take on all opposition and lay down a punk rock path of wild music and free thought. Their rough and ready line up is led by the godfather of Hardcore, Joe Shithead Keithley (guitar, vocals) he is more than ably accompanied by the manic rhythm section of Paddy Duddy (drums) and Corkscrew (bass).
Early reviews indicate that Fight Back is the most innovative D.O.A. album since War on 45D.O.A. has always been right on the pulse of what's going on in our screwed up world. Fight Back deals with what we have left, which in a lot of ways, is not much. 
"When you really think about it, income inequality and disparity is at the root of a lot huge problems, like environmental degradation, war, sexism and hate" said Keithley who has been fighting the good fight for the last 40 years. It's why he's made TALK - ACTION = 0 his lifelong mantra. 

Fight Back, released on Joe's own label Sudden Death Records, is a scathing and timely piece. Joe deals with all manner of unseemly low characters and issues. The album opens with acerbic "You Need an Ass Kickin' Right Now," next rips right into the startling "Killer Cops," then smashes into the anthemic "Time To Fight Back," which is street punk resistance at its fiercest. The album proceeds with the timely "Gonna Set You Straight" with violent and natural ease, and continues with the vitriolic "I Just Got Back From the USA." Then, the album takes a funny twist with "We Won't Drink This Piss" (down with bad corporate beer!) and "You Can't Stop Me," a song in which Joe delves into the character of Slapshot's playing coach Reggie Dunlop (a natural alter ego perhaps).
D.O.A. was formed amidst a whirlwind of controversy and upheaval. In 1978, three guys fresh out of high school from the backwaters of Canada's suburbs heard about the punk rock revolution. In February of that same year the band formed and started playing shows. They soon realized that there were no record deals coming in any time soon.
Keithley (aka Joey Shithead) who was working towards being a civil rights lawyer before he found punk rock, concluded that the band had to take the "do it yourself" approach long before DIY became a popular concept. He formed a fledging record label called Sudden Death Recordsand the label released D.O.A.'s first snarling slab of vinyl, the Disco Sucks 7" EP. 
Disco Sucks soon became an underground hit and the band started touring from Vancouver to their newly adopted "home base" of California five to six times a year. In 1980, Keithley coined the term "hardcore" and the band soon released their landmark album Hardcore 81. The album became a hit, the hardcore movement took off, and D.O.A. pushed that expression into common vernacular.
Over the last four decades, D.O.A. have released 17 studio albums, sold over a million albums, and played 4,000 shows on five different continents. The band's albums, shows, and attitude have won over three generations of fans and influenced the likes of Green Day, Nirvana, Offspring, Henry Rollins, David Grohl and The Red Hot Chilli peppers, to name a few. Keithley has also written two books: I Shithead: A Life in Punk and TALK - ACTION = 0.
From day one, D.O.A. has helped organize and lead hundreds of benefit concerts and protests for good and just causes like environmental issues, women's rights, food bank benefits, and First Nations' rights. They have organized protests and stood against war, racism, weapons proliferation, and countless other causes.
Keithley has been called a cultural politician, trying to change the world from outside the system. He's currently running for Mayor of his home town of Burnaby, under the Green Party banner, attempting to change the system from inside. Keithley and the band were also ardent supporters of the Occupy Movement, realizing this was a step towards equality in our world. He is always looking for a way to push "grassroots democracy" and like his idol Pete Seeger, he and the band won't give up.
When the band takes their wild, unbridled show live show on the road, it's a must see, because it's a chance to see one of the last real punk rock bands that gets out there, kicks ass, and tells it like it is. It's a perpetual atmosphere of chaos, veering out of control, but somehow, at the last minute, D.O.A. manages to reign all of it back in. And in an indescribable way, you are not quite the same person afterwards.
TIME TO FIGHT BACK AND CHANGE THIS WORLD
