My Favorite Things ~ Week #14


Holy crap on a cracker we are on week 14 episode 26 of My Favorite Things. Can y'all believe it? Whew it's been a journey and a fun one at that. Well this week kicks off the 4th of July for all my fellow American friends so for those of you celebrating 2 things! Have fun while being safe and


Alright so moving right along to: 
Big Fish Games: Have you guys heard of this site? I was a member for a long time I mean a SUPER LONG TIME... I have a bunch of credits I have to use up or lose by 7/9 so I am testing out a bunch of their games trying to use them before the sale (credits aren't good on the sale which is why I haven't used them) basically you paid $ 6.99  a month and got a credit good for a game or you could be like me and store them up. Well now I've canceled my membership and well have to use them or lose them. It was a great buy and I've found some fund time sucking games such as: 
Jo's Dream Organic Coffee or Jessica's Cupcake Cafe, or Farm to Fork, Burger Bustle: Elle's Organics, Alice's Tea Cup Madness, Plants vs Zombies, and Sky High Farm. All of which are super fun but I have like 6 more credits I have to use soon. So I'm in this made dash of a buy now or forever hold my peace mold. Problem I don't want to regret buying so I am playing the games first (you can play for 60 minutes free before purchasing) which is great but man what a decision and time such I face. UGH so I said all that to ask do you play any games on there and if so which ones would you suggest I purchase to help weed down the field? I like the time management games so any suggestions on those would be great! Please and thank you!

Moving on...

PERSONAL/PROJECTS
Scrap-booking
Do you love it? 
Hate it?
Leave it or take it?
Have you found a cheap way of doing it? 
I personally could take it but I love me the paper that goes with it so when I pass by the scrap booking paper I have to pick it up especially at Wally World which is not a normal place I visit (I swear it's the devil) but I can't help but wanna go and get some of the paper when I am there I just love the paper. Is that weird? If you answer yes I don't wanna know. Long answer short do you know of a site or cheaper way to help with this weird paper fetish I have developed and if so please do share with me what it is below I would appreciate it. 

Also what do you do with scrap booking that 's not scrap booking. I don't wanna scrapbook but I love me some of the papers? Can I do a smashbook with it or an art book without it being a scrapbook? Can I make it a journal? Ideas people who are more creative than I. I need them and you internet foes have them so send them my way

TV SHOWS
So I'm back to watching only a few shows again and less movies but with a 3 day holiday I am hoping to change that. Ma and I are heading to the movie theater this weekend to either see Jurassic World or Mad Max (betting people and smart people should put money on the dinos but eh who knows what kind of mood the mother will be in on Saturday)

Any who I have currently been watching 

Crossing Lines which is Criminal Minds in Europe basically with Donald Sutherland so YEAH me we are only on Season 1 still and I have to say it is still very interesting although we have already called the oh oh he's totally going to hook up with her character LOL so we are happy with that. Needless to say I might slightly be in love with the German guy which is weird for me since I can't pronounce his real life name which is sad cause hint hint I picked him as my favorite actor for the week (you will get to hear me butcher that later YEAH YOU) Otherwise they are interesting oh and they totally had a hunger games episode last time which I was like sneaky sneaky Donald sneaky sneaky 

Also still watching 

Pretty Little Liars and the Summer of A which I am starting to remember why I hate this show. Just when I thought it was getting interesting they have a crappy episode where I'm like really, really that's where you want us to think we are going with this who is Charles bull hockey crap story line (was trying to keep it clean for the young ones) but come on... 


You are trying too to to to hard to make this to to to complicated and it's not okay K.I.S.S is what they taught me in math and by damn it PLL follow the rules and just freaking Keep It Simple Stupid by god stop with all this crap UGH I will not ruin it for those not caught up but this is some bull hockey you (nostril flare insert right there for those who can't see me) this is just wrong

MUSIC
So it's summer and a 3 day holiday so I wanted some easy squeezey lemon pie music to dance to and listen to whilst getting my groove on in my kiddy pool with the puppy in my backyard (especially after talking about the PLL fiasco I just talked about) also don't judge on the kiddy pool the puppy needs love to. So I picked 2 summer songs that are blowing up the charts right now and my Ipod and ones I can't help but dance to every time they come on so sit back and enjoy or better yet get up and dance either way here you go...

Cheerleader by Omi



Can't Feel My Face by The Weekend


So there are my 2 songs for the weekend enjoy! 

Books well a good book for this weekend for me would be 
Title: The Hunger Games
Author: Suzanne Collins
Release: 2008

Summary
Winning will make you famous.
Losing means certain death.


The nation of Panem, formed from a post-apocalyptic North America, is a country that consists of a wealthy Capitol region surrounded by 12 poorer districts. Early in its history, a rebellion led by a 13th district against the Capitol resulted in its destruction and the creation of an annual televised event known as the Hunger Games. In punishment, and as a reminder of the power and grace of the Capitol, each district must yield one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 through a lottery system to participate in the games. The 'tributes' are chosen during the annual Reaping and are forced to fight to the death, leaving only one survivor to claim victory.

When 16-year-old Katniss's young sister, Prim, is selected as District 12's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives, some of whom have trained for this their whole lives. , she sees it as a death sentence. But Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature.

Thoughts
Very good book I absolutely enjoyed it 100%. Hated the movie loved the book go figure. I have to say that I loved both the second movie and book so there's something to think about. Anyway great book I love the way Katniss is in this book how she is set up how she thinks and how the world is described. This is something you can't do in a movie. We get her thoughts in this book and her actions in the movie make more sense once you've read the book. More of the background is given and I have to say you fall for the character who is hard to love in this book. She is a child forced to do something no child should ever have to do and she volunteers to do it to save the one person she loves more than anyone and I for that she is the bravest person. She is a complex, mysterious, dangerous, and brave girl wrapped up in an anger filled 15 year old who has accepted her fate. I love this book and what it is and what it stands for. READ IT and if you don't like it drop off the face of the planet and don't tell me about it cause you are dead to me. Also
that you don't get it

ACTOR
Alright time to do the butchering of the name as promised I picked the actor TOM WLASCHIHA (damn evening typing that was hard) from Crossing Lines and Game of Thrones, Rush, Enemy at the Gate dang home boys been in everything German apparently or anything with an accent. 







Anyways as always Its been real thanks for joining me for yet another awesome week on my favorites. Please have a safe and fun 4th of July!!!

My Favorite Things ~ Week 13




Oh me oh my how the week has flown right on by. My goodness not only is it week 13 episode episode 24. I have gotten to the point where I have not gotten anything else published this week on the blog nor in the podcasting world either due to being busy and the lack of anything new going on. Sadly I am having a lot going on in my world. Last weekend I was at Boulevardia and this weekend by the time this is published I shall be in St Louis for a little me time with some friends. So no extras this week. Any way that's enough of me let's get back to the really fun stuff and the whole reason you are even listening...

NERD
What kind of nerd are you? I have heard of lots of nerds and lots of geeks. There are nerd jocks, geek comics, nerd book readers, geek tv show viewers, We geek out over sports, nerd out over actors, geek out over plots, nerd out over pop funk figures, geek out over Dr. Who, nerd out over firefly. But what kind of nerd/geek are you?
I've been asking myself this every time I go to write this section of this favorite thing. What qualifies for this section. Is there really anything specifically to put here? I mean let's be honest there are specific things to put in music, and TV and books but realistically those are all things that I "nerd" out about anyway? So if I am breaking them up into specific categories how is this one helping me out other than games, or my pop collectibles which I don't get that often or my trips helping me out?
Then add to it I put most of my trip stuff in the section right below called personal projects which is half personal and half projects (I mean mostly it's personal with an occasional project I find on pintrest I think you guys would like or find interesting) I say all that to come back to this...
What is this nerd section for? What should I start sharing here for you guys? What do you want here? I mean let's be honest there are over a hundred (and I wish I was crapping you here) sites that you can find nerd news a lot faster and more accurate than what I bring you. There are five other sections below that I have broken down more specific topics other than comics which I read but now with the frequency that some would appreciate
The only new Nerd news in my life is the Loot Crate subscription and Nerd Block subscription that I just got this week (Nerd Block had a hiccup with my address that they are still working on) Loot crate I wasn't all that impressed with and ended up giving most of it away to a 15 year old boy whom I consider to be like a nephew to me. He was happy I was sad about the 20 bucks I wasted. So needless to say we both came out happy. Otherwise there isn't anything new to report in the NERD section of my favorite things. I guess what I am rambling about is to say I may put this on the shelf for awhile in the future to pick back up when needed but may not always bring out to use... there I said it enough beating around the bush.

PERSONAL/PROJECTS
So I am traveling once again to St. Louis which is only a 4 hour car ride from my neck of the woods to there neck of the woods but it is with 2 other females both of which who like to pack a lot of things. Add to it we are going to Six Flags, drinking at wineries on the way to and fro and going to a magical place called "REAL LIFE ESCAPE ROOMS" yep where we and our guest have to solve puzzles to escape from a room in under 1 hour. Seriously and we shall of course be tired and hung over knowing the lot I shall be with. There is absolutely no way this can go wrong. I think we decided the horror room was out (due to my needing to be cuddled and held if we do the horror room) and decided to do the heist room instead. Now keep in mind no one is good at puzzles in our group and no one is allowed to use their phones so either this can go really really good or really really bad. Hence another reason why the horror room is out.
I image it looks similar to this:
 Which if I am to be honest I Have no idea what I would do in this first on other than sit on the sofa which would probably result in my immediate death or disqualification.

I don't even wanna think about what I would have to do for this one. So this escape room may not go according to plan like the group thinks it will...

TV SHOWS/MOVIES
Whelp I finally found season 3 of Death in Paradise 

And I'm going to just come out and say right now "I am not a happy camper" NOT ONE LITTLE BIT


Seriously walk away if you don't want to know about this rant... no side note I won't spoil this for anyone invested or getting invested in this show because it is a good show that is a good family show and I do support it. It doesn't have a lot of gore or blood there isn't any cussing or sex so all in all it's a decent family show but by DAMN IT I am not happy with how they did a freaking transition. Damn British television you would think by now after all the freaking British television shows that I watch I would know what was coming but NO NO I did not and I was NOT prepared and I am NOT happy. I am so not happy in fact I am not even certain that I will continue with this series or not. Not sure if I will keep going. I may be done with this whole freaking show... UGH

RANT OVER For now I guess... 

Anyway I am also still working on the previous shows listed from last week, Dr. Who (made it to Donna's season and man is she ever a hoot) Wallander (still with baby Tom), Heroes (kind of got stuck), Crossing Lines (Wallander is who I blame for this) and Pretty Little Liars (cause I mean this is the time of year for new episodes so yeah).

No new movies sorry never made it to the theater and this weekend I'm out of town like a travel fool so that blows. Maybe next week I'll catch something...


MUSIC
The first song I picked this week is To Build a Home by The Cinematic Orchestra because I just heart it and by golly miss molly it rocks.


If you enjoy some Sherlock and Molly heartache here's some fan video of the song with them. Enjoy that while you weep your eyes out done by Nyah86Production


The second song I picked is: Daisy by Brand New


And for more giggles here's a fan video by k9lover27 who did an excellent Dean (from Supernatural) fan video based on the song.


So yeah go cry your eyes out to that as well. I'll bring the tissues and the ice cream.

BOOKS
Anywho moving on to books


Title: Magic Bites
Author: Ilona Andrews
Released: 2007
Books in series: 8 possibly?

Summary:
Kate Daniels is a down-on-her-luck mercenary who makes her living cleaning up paranormal problems. Atlanta has two factions struggling for power. Masters of the Dead are necromancers who control vampires. The Pack are a paramilitary clan of shapechangers. When Kate's guardian is killed, she is caught between.

Thoughts:
I liked it. Enough to continue to buy the series even  though I stopped reading back at book 4 which is saying something. It's another Nalini Singhi kind of author to me. I liked the first few so much I continue to buy all the new releases out there and even though I haven't picked them up to read in a while I still keep buying because I trust that the author isn't going to let me down. One day I am scared that they might turn into a Laurell Hamilton situation but I hold out faith that the reading blog community will let me know long before that happens. What I liked about this book is the shifter aspect. I was never really a vampire kind of gal I enjoy more the shifters IDK call me old fashion but I like my men with a pulse so when this series came out with magic that only works half time and shifters I was like

So then I ended up with a but ton of books about shifters which I still like but then I had this massive shift in taste and now I read a lot of books about fantasy which don't include a lot of romance and well now all my shifter novel kind of sit on the shelves collecting dust cause that's how I roll. That being said I do recall this book and I did enjoy it and I do plan to eventually at some point in my many many years plan to re-read the series and eventually finish it. I just pray she stops writing this series so that  I can hope to achieve this goal before I die or she does.

ACTOR/ACTRESSES
So this week I thought I would have some fun with picking the actor and do someone from a show that I enjoy that is sadly no longer on the air and while I hope this person is still out there doing something I am not certain that he is. He's in a random British show called Robin Hood and I absolutely heart him but haven't seen him in anything else which doesn't mean anything. Any who this week's actor is JONAS ARMSTRONG






Anyways as always Its been real thanks for joining me for yet another awesome week on my favorites. As always I would love to hear from you on what you thought about this week, as well as, what some of  your favorite things are.

Friday Favorites ~ Week 12

My goodness y'all we are week 12 Episode 23 of My Favorite Things. Again I threw in some good times for you this week (Album Review of Beneath The Skin by Of Monsters and Men, and What's Next a meme where you pick what I read next which you can still cast your votes for on the poll it's up to you to decide which book I shall read next, either Bitten by Kelley Armstrong, Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by NK Jemisin, or Lily of the Nile by Stephanie Dray so go forth and vote)

Anyway enough of that let's get on to the exciting crap of the NERDSPHERE
So I've been racking my brains trying to think of something nerdy to share with you guys all week and I can't think of anything that will last a majorly long time. I mean E3 did happen this week which is majorly cool if you are a gamer and I am, but not a lot of stuff is coming out by the time this airs. So that might be next week. Jurassic World did come out and let's be real that's cool but this lonely nerd had to do a garage sale last weekend so no movie yet. Hopefully that will be this weekend. I have heard nothing but fantastically, wonderful, excitingly good things about it so yes I am going to see it soon I promise.


If it makes you feel any worse for me I also missed Mad Max and still haven't seen Entourage which are 2 other movies I wanted to see plus Ma is bugging the crap out of me to see Age of Ultron so boo we have a lot of catching up to do. This weekend I am going to


Which some of you may or may not know I am a beer nerd (or at least I like to think of myself as one) I love me some craft beer so bouleardia is a very fun time here in KC and I plan to enjoy it. I love craft beer so much I belong to a beer club that monthly has craft beers from all over the globe shipped in and I get to sample them I try to post them on my Instagram when I get them. This month was American IPAs so that was fun. But this weekend is all about our local Boulevard brewery so it will have beer, food and cigars (another weakness) go figure.

Otherwise as far as nerd stuff goes I got nothing other than the Harry Potter Pop Funk dolls or vinyl figures will be coming out here in July but alas I shall save that for yet another day when it gets closer plus we've already established from last week how much of a nerd I am for those and let's be real we don't need to go any further on down that crazy rabbit hole do we?!

Nope let's move on

PROJECT/PERSONAL:



So I thought I would update you on a few of my past projects cause I mean come on it's been like 12 weeks...
First off the 100 day project
I'm going to be honest and tell ya I have no idea what day I'm on due to when I make this podcast and really this has turned more into a scrap book, art book, picture book, journal book kind of thing instead of a letter thing yet it is letters I write when an occasional poem sometimes a list (bucket style or top 5 or something along those lines) and journal about what happened that day like my trip to Atlanta with some pictures to remember. Sometimes it's silly like some pictures of my Babydaddy love like this

thrown in for fun but all in all in it's been a blast to do and I have been discovering some fun things about me. Things I've liked and well to be quite frank somethings that I've needed to remind myself about like STOP DRINKING SODA and OMG stop being so hard on yourself. Remember to take selfies no one cares what you look like if you have confidence, and remember these simple moments because God knows that if you don't it will be these moments that you miss the most when they are gone. It's been a good reminder at the end of the day that this is the times that I am going to miss the most. So yes I recommend it to any and everyone it is a lot of fun!

The Garage sale was an absolute BUST I will never ever ever do another one I swear it on a holy virgin grail of unicorn and puppies My goodness I think we made like 40 dollars all weekend not even enough to cover the cost of food for the lot of us to eat that ran the damn thing. SO UGH. NOPE called the donation center (City Union Mission a homeless shelter in our local area) to come and pick up what was left to sell at their thrift shop and said good bye to the hassle.

I maybe over my toilet paper art projects for now. I think I am just done with the whole craze for the moment.  That I believe was discussed back in Week 1 of my favorite things. Needless to say these were the finally results (see pictures below). And while the end result was pretty, I think I am pretty much over them for now... I think but maybe I will pick it back up in a little while although I don't think ma got the message because every few weeks a new bag of toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls shows up in my room. I am running out of space for them LOL




TV SHOW/MOVIE
Whew I actually started a few new shows (I blame the summer time and it's hawt yo plus Netflix and the library still haven't gotten me season 3 of Death in Paradise either on instant streaming or DVD so I gave up and moved on to bigger and better things and I digress) so I started...


I admit it's the BBC version and not the Swedish version due to some factors 1) because of the whole I speak English thing even though it's not proper English. 2) Tom Hiddleston, 3) It's BBC and was recommended by Netflix due to my liking something or another on Netflix 4) Tom Hiddleston 5) Total crime drama that is BBC written and directed so GREAT ACTING and come on its BBC so you know it's going to be good and finally 6) did I mention Tom Hiddleston and I mean a young, blonde, curly hair Tom... let that sink in for a minute.
I just finished series 1 and man this show is amaze balls my goodness but good golly miss molly it has some deep stuff like hard core crime that just makes you wanna take a shower after watching. So yeah I have to watch it in small doses plus it's like a hour and 30 minutes an episode so I mean come on they're like tiny movies. I wanted to put this in the movie sections and say shove off when y'all complained about it but alas I didn't because I do heart this program a lot and I still have I think 2 more series of it before Netflix curses me again with either not catching up or BBC not catching up or something before I go insane and start craving more of it.

Meanwhile mom and I got hooked on


Which is a Criminal Minds in Europe because we love us some criminal serial killers abroad with accents and let's be honest that's what this is plus Donald Sutherland! And since I hooked Ma into the Hunger Games movies I was all like "and bonus at least he's not sending children to fight and die this time" she looked at me and deadpanned it like, "at least not yet hold on Sara it's still early". I died laughing she's right we are only on episode 3 of the first season LOL. My ma is a clever gal she is :) So those are the 2 new shows we are watching and just started.

On top of those two new shows I am keeping up with the other shows I have been watching for awhile now:


Dr. Who and only the 10th Doctor due to a bet that I made with my sis Court who watched Sherlock in return I promised to watch the 10th doctor... needless to say she got the better deal thus far. Although I did like the episode Blink and Martha the companion is way better then Rose (don't hate she just wasn't my flavor) plus she is growing on me.


Also still working on my re-watch of Heroes which is still pretty amazing! In order to prep for Heroes Reborn.

And I am still keeping up weekly with #PLL the #SummerofAnswers Season 6 of Pretty Little Liars because dang yo shit got real and that show is not playing and hey I'm a sucker I've stuck with it this long I'm dying to see where they are going with it at this point.  Plus by damn it I want to freaking know who the frack is A and it had better make sense or hell hath no fury like me (sort of)


Needless to say with all that TV show watching there hasn't been a lot of Movie watching occurring LOL so no movies this week :(

MUSIC 
So this week I did an Album Review of Beneath The Skin by Of Monsters and Men and I really enjoyed the album and with the review I let you the listeners hear 3 of their songs that I liked. But I wanted to share with you this week one of their previous songs from their 2nd album that I rock out to frequently

Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men


Then b/c I think they are similar and yet completely different (I know I know work it out on your own) I picked an Imagine Dragons Song Bleeding Out


And just for fun here's a Sherlock fan vid of the same song but with you know Sherlock, enjoy


And for even more heartache fun here's a Supernatural fan vid of Bleeding out enjoy



*none of these are my own at all if you know who deserves credit let me know so I can give it to them THANKS*

Alright alright I'm done

BOOK
Let me see. I did enjoy The Maze Runner (review to come I promise)
but for my favorite this week I think I am going to go with an easy one...

Title: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Author: JK Rowling
Summary:
Harry Potter thinks he is an ordinary boy. He lives with his Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and cousin Dudley, who are mean to him and make him sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. (Dudley, however, has two bedrooms, one to sleep in and one for all his toys and games.) Then Harry starts receiving mysterious letters and his life is changed forever. He is whisked away by a beetle-eyed giant of a man and enrolled at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The reason: Harry Potter is a wizard! The first book in the "Harry Potter" series makes the perfect introduction to the world of Hogwarts.

Thoughts
I mean come on you knew it was coming. Eventually it was going to make it here. I am a Harry Potter nerd to a point. I LOVE ME SOME HP and I love the books, movies, games and well while I won't do the cosplay, except at Halloween (gotta use that graduation robe for something) but I do enjoy it. I love the morals, values and fun times. I like the bleakness, the happiness, the lessons, the jokes, the seriousness, the sadness the laughter, the friendship, I like that it makes me cry and laugh at the same time. I love that I can quote it and when someone is saying something from it I love that I know the reference. I also love that I sort people I'm not sure if anyone else does this but I sort people into houses. Yes I really do and I enjoy taking the quizzes like are you brave POOF you're Griffon or if you're smart Ravenclaw hell not going to lie I even love that I know what the houses are pft what judge me I heart me some HP and I love reading some of the fan fiction although some of ya can get a little cray cray with it not going to lie. Heck I will go full circle with this and give you some Bleeding Out love with a fan vid of Harry Potter (not my video someone else totally made it) 



but I even watch the fan videos if you go to my youtube site I have a whole favorite's category tied to HP and other peoples fan videos I love it that much. Alright I am starting to think that this should have been my nerd topic not my book topic somehow I digressed from the love of the book to the love of all things HP.
So back to the topic at hand (yes I went there to a rap song) the book is great. Yes you need to read in order it is important or you will not understand what is going on. Plus it sets up this wonderful world for you. It's a short first book. It is made to be read by an 11 year old which is genius and makes it fun. You will love it I swear!

ACTOR/ACTRESS
Crap on a cracker I have no idea who to pick... I am thinking we talked about so many wonderful people today... Um my love of HP came out in full force at the end so I am going to stick with Emma Watson she plays the lovely Hermione Granger in the movies plus a butt ton of other wonderful roles. She is an excellent role model and lord help us she is going to be Belle in the upcoming Beauty and the Beast.





She is lovely isn't she I do enjoy her and all the wonderful things she is doing. I hope she continues to be successful in life and the roles she chooses. I figure she will be b/c I am supporting her plus let's be honest she is pretty darn smart and makes some good decisions so more power to her.
