Miley Cyrus: A Wreck?

17 Oct

Forgive me for my choice of topic. I don’t generally like to write about celebrities, especially ones that have a status similar to that of Miss Miley Cyrus, but I felt I needed to share something.

For those of you who haven’t heard her newest song “Wrecking Ball” or haven’t seen the music video, I strongly urge you to find it on YouTube before reading on.

To give perspective on how I feel about this video, I will first say that I have never been a fan of Miley, whether on TV or in music. Before I even realized I was listening to her song, I was irritated by it and had to change it.

Then I watched the music video.

I will say that the music video is not good, but it is much better (as is the song) than anything I have ever seen or heard from her. If she continues in a similar manner, and works to improve herself and her music, she might actually be able to be a respected music artist.

The reason I liked the video is that during certain parts, it was actually artistic and spoke to the pain of what the song seems to be about. Of course, Miley over-sexualized it (or her producers, or whoever) when really, this song isn’t a sexy song. When she hits the wall with the sledge hammer – stunning – but when she licks it, I just want to punch her in the face because it is so unnecessary. Even her nudity is acceptable, as it speaks to the vulnerability of being in a relationship, and the pain sometimes associated with it. The grinding on the chain of the wrecking ball is, again, unnecessary. And I don’t find her to be a terribly amazing actress, so the close-ups of her face are a little uncomfortable to watch. I could go on and on about things I don’t like, too…but I’ll leave it at that.

Here is to not hating on the girl that much for her newest song and video, and hoping that some of the crazy might be over and that we will see better music from her.

What do you think of Miley and her latest song and video?

Sleep Talking

3 Jul


I recently watched a video of a guy explaining his recordings of his voice while sleeping. Some of the things he said while asleep were quite entertaining, so I downloaded the app to record myself and see what I say! Unfortunately, I have a problem. I can’t actually bring myself to record.

I know it seems silly, but I’m worried about what I’ll hear on the playback. What if I hear voices or sounds that don’t belong to me? What if I start speaking in tongues or something crazy? What if by random chance I hear the sounds of someone trying to get into my apartment?

The thought of any of those is scary to me, and I’m definitely one who prefers not to know. If I don’t know, I can’t psych myself out.

Have you ever recorded video or audio of yourself while you slept? What did you find? Are you interested in recording yourself? Do you worry about these things, and what would you do if you caught something crazy?

I’m a Whole Lot of Crazy

1 Jul


I have to admit…I’m a little crazy.

I like when its hot. I like driving with my windows down – its a must! I like sitting by the river all the time. I like to be spontaneous. I don’t lock my doors unless its night…not that it matters because I keep my bedroom window open. I don’t lock my car. I speak my mind. My way is the best way. I like to race and I refuse to lose. I’m super competitive. I don’t think 5 pets is too many. I chose my restaurants because of the drinks, not the food. I get emotionally involved with books and TV. I have an obsession with animal jewelry. I don’t like alcohol, but I can party it up like its 1999. I can listen to metal and oldies on the same CD. My Friday nights usually consist of playing cards or board games. I eat things past the expiration date. I spend too much money and don’t clean often enough. I put others before myself even when its bad for me. I’m stubborn to the end. I like to share, but I hate when people touch and move my stuff. I love to cook, I love to sew, and I love to wear dresses, however I am not girly. I am a woman, but if you think there is something I can’t do, you are wrong. I’m not a feminist. I don’t carry pepper spray. I love walking alone or with someone. I love walking at night and I love creepy places like alleys. I like being in seclusion, but I love my friends. I love to cuddle, but some times I need my space. I don’t like to use air conditioning, and I feel wrong using a colander. I prefer to make all of my food from scratch, but I love going out to eat. I would do anything for my friends. I give my food and my money to strangers. I love gnomes, and I love to paint. I can’t stand when people don’t use their blinker. I’m passionate about driving. I wish I could be in school forever. I love to read, and I love grammar. I’m crazy, and I’m careless, but you know what?

No matter how crazy or careless I might be, no matter how weird I am, there is someone out there who will love me more than anything. And to that, I say cheers!
