Film-wise, it's about entertainment for me. What do I feel like watching at that particular moment? If it's not about entertainment, my choice will most likely be a documentary. Not just about anything, but I have to be interested in the topic that's being presented. If it's neither about entertainment nor education, it'll usually be a writer/director type movie that's well done with a good message.
And based on the recommendation/reminder from a FB friend, I finally got to see Beyond The Lights last night from the writer/director, Gina Prince-Blythewood (Love & Basketball, The Secret Life of Bees).
As per the trailer, expect Beyond The Lights to be cheesy at times, but not in a Nicholas Sparks someone's-got-cancer saccharin sort of way. Beyond the romance, this film is a great example of what casting does to a movie. (Surprisingly, Minnie Driver almost outshone the female lead, Gugu Mbatha-Raw.) And beyond the casting, there is a solid message that's never too late to hear!

I'm not up on the current shoe trends - or any trend for that matter - but apparently Stuart Weitzman's 'Nudist' (4" - too high for me) / 'Nudistsong' (3"+ - just right!), this simple, single strap, minimalist pumps were the IT shoe of Spring...2014! And of course, I just found out about them.
Personally, I think Louboutins are overrated. Uncomfortable. Overpriced. And waaay too narrow for my feet - although they are pretty to look at, they're just not practical for everyday wear. I'd much prefer SWs!!!
If you can't afford the $425CAD+ price tag, here is a link of look-alikes. However, I may cave for the real deal! Manolo also has a similar style called Chaos, but they will set you back $950CAD!

So apparently Mae White is the "DUFF" in this flick, a.k.a. designated.ugly.fat.friend. Like how fucking offensive is that especially when she's neither ugly nor fat?!?!
Hollywood has got to start recruiting more regular looking people!

The latest season, Season 8, of The Millionaire Matchmaker is such a total flop.
First of all, they completely revamped the format of the show. The beginning seems like you're watching Intervention. There's a camera set-up in a studio and the person sitting in front of the camera seems like they're revealing their deepest, darkest secret. In reality, they're just stating the facts, re: their name, age, why they're looking for "love" now, etc.
Secondly, every. single. "millionaire" is either a recycled reality "star" OR a direct relative of a former reality "star". So far, some Manzo son has been on it, a 21yo daughter - wth does she need Patti's help?? - of some crazy Jewish lady from some Housewives show, and then Spencer's (of Heidi & Spencer "fame") sister.
(Sorry, I realise that my description of these people is piss-poor, but I honestly never paid any mind to any of these shows...even at their hype. So there's my excuse!)
And because these are people from other reality shows, this automatically makes me question their credibility. Ok, not credibility, but I doubt their sincerity. None of these "millionaires" seem authentic to me. Wait - they technically may not even qualify to be part of the "millionaires club", as Patti calls it, 'cause I don't even think they're millionaires!
And if they're millionaires, what the fuck am I doing with my life? How come I don't have my own show to bankroll my life??
Thirdly - and yes, there are more reasons this show is going downhill - the audition process is practically eliminated. No more on-camera weeding out of famewhores; instead, they get a personal invite to the Millionaire Mixer!
That's fine and completely understandable that Patti no longer wants to incorporate her own romantic relationship on her show, but the numerous other changes to the show are making things take a nosedive.
The Millionaire Matchmaker has now become yet another show that's on in the background while I play Candy Crush!

My impending period also makes me a zombie to commercials, making me wanna buy the special ed. of The Best of Me just to watch the "storybook" ending.
Hopefully "storybook" = ending that doesn't suck.
I honestly don't remember the last time I watched a DVD either!

Sometimes when I'm about to get my period, I want to buy strange things that echo my childhood. Case in point: Air Jordan IIIs or IVs - that's 4 right?? ;)
(I tried on a pair a coupla weeks ago and it made me look like a primary schoolboy / mulatto toddler / baby wigger.)
My period also makes my mind race with insignificant thoughts like, what ever happened to @KennyG?
Another period-induced thought, was this video & Boyz II Men's "4 Seasons of Loneliness" have the same director? They have eerily similar elements...

I saw it in the Rolex catalogue.
It is not just a figment of the hip hop, ballin' like crazy, Canal Street stall creation.
It was like $117k+CAD.
