No

This is currently my favorite Meghan Trainor song. She just keeps pumping out the hits. Her and Katty Perry just float this girl’s boat! They are always about some type of “Girl Power” and since I am a product of the 1980s the Spice Girls were a huge influence on girls of all ages back then!

The Jetsons

It’s funny how we have turned into a society that really takes their Movies and Television so seriously. I can’t imagine living life without a Television set, I mean I can’t even go to sleep at night without my TV on all night long. There are times that I think that I would have really enjoyed a life in another time, like back in the frontier days, or over in Asia in the days of the Shogun with their Ninjas and Samurais, but when it is all said and done I don’t know how I could even consider such a thing since I am totally spoiled with all of today’s technologies that we pretty much take for granted in our daily lives.

We have pretty much turned into what The Jetson’s (the old 1960’s cartoon show set in the future) portrayed us as being. It’s funny how often I find that show being referenced when technology is being discussed. If you were to watch one or two of the episodes of that show, I believe you would be surprised to see all of the similarities of things that we are now using or on the brink of using. It can really freak you out.

The Future, Our Past

I have always loved my TV. I’ve heard some good things about Netflix. I know a lot of people that subscribe to it and are ranting about all the movies that they get to see, when they want to see them. Guy Movies, Chick Flicks, Horror and Suspense Films, Action Films, Love Stories, you name it and you can find them on Netflix. I was kind of hoping that I would get a subscription for Christmas, but that didn’t happen and I can’t afford it myself right now, but that’s OK, there will always be good movies out there, no shortage there folks.

Stand By Me

One of my favorite songs from long ago is “Stand By Me.” I just love the idea of having someone in your life so loyal to you that they would be by your side – no matter what.

Then a movie came out with that title. It was a really good movie – very well written and totally believable dialogue and story line. Haven’t seen that movie in a very long time, so I thought it would be fun to pop it in the DVD player and watch it while doing laundry and some general housework.

a great movie on dvd

Stand By Me – The Movie

Trick Questions

During one of the most bizarre job interviews I ever had, I was made to take a “character and morality test.” They never told me whether I passed or failed. I always wondered if there were trick questions on that test. Especially the one that asked if you have ever cheered for the “bad guy” in a movie. Answering yes probably got me disqualified from that job, but I was honest.

There are a lot of movies where you cheer for the “bad guy.” The one that came to mind was “Cool Hand Luke.” I always felt that he was wronged throughout his incarceration, and that the sheriff was wrong to not get him medical care when he was shot. As far as I’m concerned, the sheriff murdered Luke, which makes him no better than the people he was arresting.

Girl Games, It’s About Time

I am so happy to say that girl games have gone a long way since my 22 year old niece was a little girl looking for girl games to play on the computer. Of course that was all most twenty years ago, but you have to understand that girls were just as active on computers back then and had only a few actually girl games for the large number of females that were looking for entertainment just as much as the guys were. I don’t know what they would have done without the few Disney games that had come out by then. I remember how much she loved playing The Lion King back then, but then I’m sure a lot of young guys were playing it back then as well.

These days there are tons of girl games available to today’s generation of young girls. One such site that has a grand selection to offer is easy girl games. Everything from kissing games, Barbie games, cooking games, make over games, to celebrity dress up games. Not only do they have games to play but they have tips and articles that are targeting the female population for them to read and use as well, so it isn’t only games that they have there, which I think is pretty darn cool.

Let’s hear it for “Girl Power” – Remember The Spice Girls?
