The Prodigal Song

I had been looking to download “You Can Call Me Al” by Paul Simon for years, but I never knew what it was called. Then I heard it on the radio the other day and asked Mom what it was called. I downloaded it immediately. The elusive, prodigal song has returned.

Sing Your Face Off

Sing Your Face Off on ABC had a great first season. Basically, celebrities have to impersonate singers and sing their songs. But it’s not just dress-up. They have to be believable as the person they are portraying.

They finale a few nights ago was nothing short of interesting. To start off, two of the judges – Darrell Hammond and Deb Gibson – transformed into Sonny and Cher and sang “I Got You Babe.” It was amazing.

At the end of the show, Sebastian Bach and John Lovitz took the stage as LMFAO. Although it was less believable, it was hilarious.

I’m not going to tell you who won, because that would be spoiling. It’s a great show. I can’t wait for Season 2.

The Rune Issue

I’m a huge fan of The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. My best friend Kristen and I want to get a tattoo of the parabatai rune because we are really close like that. I tried to explain to my mom what it meant, but she still said no. It would be my only tattoo. I personally feel that tattoos do not represent what they once did. What do you think?

Fictional Boys: Setting the Unattainable Standard

Another thing about fiction: the boys. They’re always attractive: good-looking, daring, protective of their girlfriend, and caring. Not at all pushy – they won’t make her do something she doesn’t want to. They love her so much they do anything to keep her. Of course, most fictional couples fight about something, but they are almost always able to work through the issue.

This sets the average fangirl’s expectations pretty high, and most real guys unfortunately fall short. Fictional boys are able to warp a girl’s mind and obliterate any previous standards for a boyfriend. in order to find love in the real world, girls cannot let fictional standards take over their brain. They cannot compare fictional boys to real ones. It’s not a fair comparison. The most important thing may be that they need to stop thinking “Why am I the only one who doesn’t have a boyfriend?” and let love take them by surprise.

Come to the Dark Side – We Have Fiction

I know I originally said I like fiction because it’s nice to forget reality, but fiction also has a darker side. Some books are too perfect. Sure, they have their rollercoaster of feels and plot twists like any other book. However, these “perfect” books end with “Happily Ever After” – particularly if your name is Stephenie Meyer.* So I guess what I’m trying to say is I like fiction because it helps me cope with reality, but it also hurts because I wish fiction was reality and I didn’t have to deal with certain things in my life.
