The correct translation is...

Oh... Jacob's last line was actually "DON'T get me upset." Oooh... scary... kinda like the Incredible Hulk (whose TV transformation scared me to death when I was a kid.)

This will probably get taken down, too. Oh well.

80's style fashion...

I recently read some nice John Hughes remembrance pieces on Entertainment Weekly online and this one specifically interested me.

It was written by Lea Thompson talking about her time working with Hughes on the film, "Some Kind of Wonderful". (Click the picture for full article.)

Her commentary was interesting, but my eye specifically caught on the picture. See her button up shirt accented with the very decorative pin? I used to do that. Yep. I can't remember if this was common but I definitely know I was into that look.

Here's proof. This is me, circa 1989:

Yes, I know this is a horrible photo of me blowing out my birthday candles but it was the only one I could find of me sporting my brooch fashion statement.

Often I'm embarrassed by things I've wore in the past (whether it's years ago or last month), but how bad can this be if Miss Amanda Jones wore the same look?

On a side note, around this time, I think I also liked wearing suspenders. I think it was a Debbie Gibson influence. Unfortunately (or fortunately?), I can't find any pics to prove that.

What crazy things did you wear in the 80s?

Updated New Moon Trailer - in French!!!

OK, before I begin, yes, I know I am way too old to be this obsessed with Twilight. Just wanted to get that out there.

So I don't know if this is the new trailer they are planning to show this weekend, but it looks like the French already got an updated version and let me tell you - it is good!!! Click here for the video (scroll down) and here for the French translations. Keep in mind, some of the comments are actually made by Taylor in an interview form. (Note: It's possible the video might be taken down as the original version I had linked has already been removed.)

(Another video and translation is here.)

UPDATE: This version has subtitles.

Now there are a lot of blink-and-miss-it moments (I know, b/c I missed several in the first viewing) so as a favor to all of you (and myself!), I took some screencaps of some of the new things you can expect to see in this trailer, such as...

Some closeups of that kiss in Italy

The Wolf Pack


The Volturi



Edward vs the Volturi

And if all you really want to see is that kiss, someone already turned it into an animated gif! Hopefully this doesn't make your eyes go cross-eyed.

Kathy Griffin and Levi Johnston??? WTH!

So I tweeted about this last night, but if any of you wanted to see the awkwardness that I was referring to, here you go:

I know most people can't stand Kathy Griffin, but I'll admit it - I think she's hilarious. And I find it funny when she pretends to come on to these guys. (Did any of you watch last season when she went on a series of set up dates with a wide range of characters, most notably Nick Carter and Ron Jeremy!!!) Although I really don't understand why Levi would go along with this. I mean, he just looks like an idiot.

New Teaser Trailer for New Moon

Kristen Stewart looks really pretty in this new teaser trailer. And Taylor Lautner looks even more ripped here - geesh! He's just a teenager???

And although I liked the indie look of Twilight, I'm getting excited to see the more polished version of New Moon.

On a related note, I refuse to sit through Bandslam to see the new extended New Moon trailer. Yes, I know it's surprising, but there are actually some cheesy teen flicks that even I won't spend my $$$ on.

You know it will all be on Youtube later anyway. I personally enjoy the bootleg videos since those have the added entertainment of the screaming and squealing of the camera operator and her nearby friends. Makes me feel less like a tool when I am screaming and squealing while watching it from the comfort of my home.

Five Minute Face

How long does it take you to do your makeup? I know I definitely cannot do 5 minutes. Maybe if I skip the eyeliner part because that seems to take the longest.

This YouTuber, Emily, decided to take on the 5 minute challenge based on a book by Carmindy from "What Not to Wear". What I found even more impressive was that she managed to convince her boyfriend to participate in helping her with this challenge. What a man!

As a side note, Emily is a local newscaster which she alludes to in her video.

Can you guys do the 5 minute face? I might try it but if I do, I might replace the highlighter step with filling in my brows. That's usually something I do everyday.

(500) Days of Summer - See it!

I really loved the film (500) Days of Summer. It's one of those quirky kind of romance films but as the film's narrator states in the beginning, "This is not a love story."

Well, there are definitely romantic moments and a lot of humorous moments as well. The film has an indie feel to it and uses a lot of different styles in telling this story, kind of like the movie, "Amelie". The main character is played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who was such a cutie in "10 Things I Hate about You").

You know what else I loved? Zooey Deschanel's wardrobe! In general, she looks beautiful throughout the entire film but her clothing especially has such a fun, classic retro style. Maybe 50's era? She's so cute.

And the music soundtrack is really good, too. Well, with the exception of the humorous use of Patrick Swayze's song, "She's Like the Wind".

Check it out - it's a fun summer film!

Friday night look

Random, insignificant comment - sometimes, I like to match my eyeshadow with my accessories.

OK, this was the first time I did it.

And I liked it.

Yay for crazy bright colors! I think it was actually more obnoxious in person. This pic was taken at the end of the night.

The main color is Steamy from MAC and was part of my loot from the recent 25% off sale.
