I Got a Rock.... HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Image
Hellooooooo! Happy Halloween everybody! What silly character are you imitating this year? I'm either going as a princess or a Harry Potter character :) You may think I'm a little too old for trick or treating, but I beg to differ! It doesn't matter how old you are when you go as long as you still have the spirit of a youngster in your heart. I couldn't resist making this post and adding this video to it.... This has got to be my favorite clip ever from all the Charlie Brown movies!



I sure hope you have better luck than good ol' Chuck (hey that rhymed :D) and Happy Halloween! Mischief Managed! July

Tubesday: Special Halloween Edition

Image
Since this week is Halloween..... I am sharing Michael Jackson's "Thriller."
This video is quite interesting, and if you scare easily, please don't watch it! It's a Halloween themed video and song, so obviously it's a bit creepy. My dad said this was the "big video" when he was a kid and it was the thing his generation talked about.
I had mixed feelings about using this as a Tubesday video because I don't believe in werewolves, skeletons coming up from the grave to haunt people, or any of those things and I don't want you to get the idea that I do! Honestly, the only reason I'm sharing this is because the dancing is cool and I like the Michael Jackson's teeth when he smiles at his girl! Haha.

Ok, this next part is going to be one MINOR spoiler for the video so if you don't want to read that, scroll down a ways until you find the normal font color again!
















**SPOILER ALERT**

In the video things are a paradox. First, Michael and his gir…

Time for a random story that leads up to the question of the day, haha :P
Every morning in choir class, we have a "question of the day" where someone volunteers to pick out a folded index card and reveal the question that both the teachers would have to answer. On the first day of school we all wrote one and passed them forward to go to the bowl. Questions range from "What was your first concert?" to "Most embarrassing moment" to "Scariest experience?" and today's question was "If every day of the week was a specific color, what would …

Random Fridays: Best Movies of 2013

Image
Hey guys! Welcome to Random Fridays!



This is a thing every week hosted by Emma!
This week it's about the best movies this year. I had quite a few similar ones to Emma, but I also have quite a few that she does have so let's do this! (click HERE to view her post)


Movie: The Hobbit
Release date: December 14, 2012 (Sorry I'm cheating a little..... oops)
My reaction: This was a well filmed movie and I liked the actors but I really didn't get into the plot. LOTR has never been my thing but I tried this and it was better than I thought, but still not great. Just thought it was worth mentioning.




Movie: Les Miserables
Release date: December 25, 2012 (seriously it's close enough to 2013.... cut me some slack, haha)
My reaction: this movie was amazing! When I finally convinced my mom to let me see it, I got together with Sea and Christine and I didn't really know what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised at how well it was done! All the actors/actresses did an ama…

Tubesday: "What Does the Fox Say?"

Image
Hey! Happy Tuesday. I miss you guys commenting on my blog, so if you are reading this, comment the word "Spaghetti" down below :)

Anyway, this video by a couple of Norwegians (that's what I was told) is really quite popular in my school right now.... I don't know if you guys have ever heard of it or seen the video, but apparently everyone loves it!
My English teacher told us that it was a parody to all rock music videos about how seriously they take themselves or something, but I'm not into rock and roll that much, so I wouldn't know.
Personally, I think it's kinda weird and it creeps me out a bit but it's also really amusing to me! Haha.
