Something different with my hair

I’m thinking about it again, doing something drastic with my hair. It’s taken my 5+ years to grow out my hair since I cut it all off into a short bob up to my ears. I didn’t really enjoy the shortness but I still want to do something different with my hair. That or get a tattoo, but I think that requires much more deliberation.

I think going super pink would be amazeballs! Take for example Gala Darling and Tarina Tarintino.

But then again, I’m not sure my complexion will work as well. I’m also not keen on the being a high maintenance kind gal. My hair grows pretty damn quick so roots will definitely be an issue. Or how about something with a little less commitment and maintenance! I could rock out a wig à la Natalie Portman in Closer.

Then I came across this… and my future suddenly became clear, hair-wise at least. Everything else is still a bit muddled.

That is all.

Unicorns are everywhere!

It’s Thursday guys! I know that unicorns will get you through till the weekend.

I saw this and went from “I want to ride a unicorn” to “Damn, I want to be THE unicorn”!

I am a big ring person. If there is a particular accessory type that I gravitate towards, it would be rings. Rings and sunglasses! I collect more of them than any other accessories. In particular, I like substantial rings, rather than thin delicate pieces and often with character. Back in high school, when I went to the mall with my friends and tried on rings, I would ask them “Would you still be my friend if I wore this?”. It’d be rhetorical of course because I could always find and love the most gaudiest of rings. However, these rings are kick ass, so yes, please add them to my collection. Thanks.

The Ballad of G.I. Joe

I’m not really sure I want to see it, however I will mostly likely end up seeing it theatre. I have lowerered expectations for this movie, even lower than the expectations I had for Transformers 2 but comic book, video game adaptations always get me. I’m geeky like that

Now, I’m not a die hard G.I. Joe fan and I don’t really know the series but I do recall having many Barbie parties where they guested frequently. I’m sure they had as much fun trying on Barbie dresses too!

This video is currently making the rounds on the interweb and it’s pretty dang cool. It is a musical spoof of the upcoming G.I. Joe movie.

To catch you up with some of the characters… you can read Kevinism’s Top Ten G.I. Joe Villains – COBRA. Mmk, so maybe this isn’t a helpful introduction to the characters but it is an entertaining read on the Cobra crew.

Because knowing is half the battle. Ha!

Buffy vs Edward Remixed

This is a great mashup of Twilight and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I’m not sure if I intend to instigate a debate on which is better because… actually I know Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a lot better story-wise and character development. I’m just not hard core bashing Twilight because I have a soft spot for teen angst movies.

I was going to make a list of the things that bothered me about the Twilight series but I think this article from just explains everything so well.

In the end, if you fully disregard existing vampire mythology, suspend all logic and sensibilities of a real, balanced relationship… basically if you turn your brain off, then yeah, you could enjoy Twilight too!

You know what’s better than Twilight? Twilight with Cheeseburgers!
