Artprize Photos

Here are a few more photos I took around Artprize yesterday. I’m thinking my favorite is the Lego Man. I’m telling you there is so much to see down there! I could easily spend 2-3 MORE days down there! That’s on top of the 2 days I went! Make sure you make it down! Let me know what you think of my photos! And be sure to share what you liked when you went to Artprize!!!









Fall Television

With Fall comes the r turn of some of our favorite tv shows. Summer has gone by FAST and thank God because I had a craving for some GLEE! And although Alphas has been out for a few weeks it’s keeping me tuned in to see what happens next. PLUS it was good news to hear it had been green lit for a second season. ANOTHER  show that I am definitely excited for is Modern Family. It is such an amazing show if you haven’t seen it. Here are the three shows and a little bit about them:

Alphas: Currently still on its first season, Alphas is about a team of super powered humans working for the government. Their mission? Track down OTHER super powered humans. The cast is wildly diverse with my favorite character being Gary. One thing that sets this show apart from other ‘super hero’ shows is the powers they have aren’t always ones that have been done before. That, and their powers are explained in a scientific manner. Instead of just being accepted. Tune in to the Syfy network on Mondays 10/9c.

Modern Family: It’s third season premieres tomorrow and is on Wednesdays at 9/8c. Modern Family takes a look at 3 families and how they are connected to each other. The show includes multiracial, same-sex, and cross generational couples. It is hilarious and usually has pretty good themes. My favorite character? Gloria Delgado-Pritchette, the voluptuous fast talking Colombian.

GLEE: It’s third season premieres TODAY. Airing Tuesdays 8/7c. Set at McKinley High School, it’s about the glee club members trials and tribulations. The characters also have a wide range of diversity. Laced with pop music covers and now original music, Glee is a rollercoaster of emotions! Especially anything that has to deal with Kurt and his Dad! I cry every time…

So be sure to check out some of the above shows if you haven’t already. Let me know what shows YOU are looking forward to watch!

Long Live the King…

In 1994 The Lion King by Disney made its way into theaters. I was 8 years old… 17 years later I’m almost 25 and the movie is still so moving. Maybe even more so now that I can truly appreciate it in its entirety. So when I heard the movie was returning to theaters in 3D I knew I wouldn’t be passing up this opportunity. I could certainly have watched The Lion King in the comfort of my own home but there is something about watching a movie in the theater that has always appealed to me. It’s the experience, the atmosphere. It makes it THAT much better. I wasn’t really going for the 3D format as I haven’t really been sold on it yet. There hasn’t been a movie yet where 3D made the experience, and this was no exception, but I digress.

There was a surprising turnout of movie goers that night. All ages. All races. Parents with their kids. And Couples. Which just goes to show you how Disney’s movie magic brings us together. Right before the movie started there was complete silence… a static like anticipation that could be felt by everyone… and then….

“NNNNNAAAAAANTS INGONYAMA BAGITHI BABA!!!!!” (Yes those are the actually lyrics, I had to look them up!)

And everyone came alive. It was amazing! One of my favorite parts were the younger kids sitting on one side of me. Even though I don’t really like sitting next to anyone I don’t know (especially kids) it was an added treat to see them enjoying a classic movie that I had fell in love with almost 2 decades ago! When the movie ended it received thunderous applause. I recommend going to see this masterpiece in the theaters for its limited 2 WEEK run. Take your kids to see it, ESPECIALLY if they have never seen The Lion King before. Don’t deny them this magical movie!
