No Better Military Style Than Troop Beverly Hills


Taylor Jacobson recently posted about her take on the military trend and shares her love for that 80’s movie Troop Beverly Hills. So now I have a super urge to watch this film.

I’m not adverse to roughing it when it comes to camping in the bush but getting a camp set up by the Wilderness Troop would be a treat!

On a completely different note… does anybody even read this? Am I alone in my love for random bits of girlishness. I bet not, but in the event that I’m lucky enough to have a reader or two, what random bits of girlishness tickles your fancy?

Sex And The City 2, Samantha’s My Fave


I’ve tried to stay away from the previews, trailers and photos promoting the new SatC 2 movie but I couldn’t stay away from contests. This one particular will be awarding the new HP TouchSmart Notebook. Enter the Sex And The City 2 And HP Daily Mirror Challenge at StyleCaster.

Other than that, I think the photo above is awesome because damnit, she’s getting older and still looking good, kicking ass in business. I covet her desk and supremely large windows in the back, however the only thing she’s missing is dual monitors. Then it would be my perfect desk.

Vampires and Illegal Signs on Queen West – Torontoist

The property at 224 Queen Street West was taken over by Juxta Productions last summer to promote movies.

Fake packs of blood are just one of many props used to promote the new Maple Productions flick Daybreakers.


Vampire-themed menus and drink lists intrigue Queen West window shoppers.

Super cool promotion for Daybreakers. I would like to see this, however, I don’t really have high hopes of this being a good movie so I’m still undecided if I want to see it in theater or wait till the DVD comes out.

Avatar in Three Panels


Avatar is definitely a beautiful and entertaining movie, however I’m still undecided as to whether or not I am fully satisfied with the movie. By all means, it had all the ingredients of a classical heroic tale but I just feel a little bit turned off by some of the cheesy dialogue.

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!

Alice in Wonderland Bubble Dress


There’s no doubt that the hype is building momentum as promotional photos surface for the upcoming Tim Burton movie, Alice in Wonderland.

Now, blue isn’t really my color but I could make an exception for this beautiful little number!

And while I’m dream shopping at Lulu’s, might as well pick this up!

500 Days of Summer

Speaking of the lovely Zooey Deschanel, I wanted to share the trailer for her upcoming movie with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I’m looking forward to seeing this one.

I also enjoyed her movie with Jim Carrey, Yes Man. It was a sweet, light comedy.

I’m sure you know that she’s a singer too, oh what you don’t? Yeah, she does.
