La La La! It's FIFA Predictions!


Since it is officially past midnight according to my clock, there are just nine more days until the first kick-off of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil! One of the biggest party nations will become 31 days of non-stop parties, celebrations, goals, and cheers come 12 June.

But who will win the biggest trophy of the sporting world? Which nation will bring everyone within their borders together?

Warning: my predictions are slightly biased and a few are uneducated, instinctual guesses. But with my guesses, I would bet money, just not my fortune.

Questions?

Now, I have been absent from this blog since the Olympics (seems like this is an Olympic blog for me, but I wish it wasn't just that). If my readers (or any readers, new or just passing-by) have any questions, suggestions, or ideas, I'm all up for them! If you wanna get personal, you can ask me questions on my Tumblr: Adipose Despository

Also, if anyone wants my review of either Godzilla, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Leave me a comment or message :)

The FIFA World Cup is starting up soon, so be ready for some good ol' football posts! Coming soon: my predictions.

So again, help a blogger out! Okay, help a bored girl who doesn't want to do the readings for her classes figure another manner in which to kill her time not studying. I'm all for education, but procrastination is a hard hurdle to jump over.

Movie Review: Maleficent


Thanks to Vancouver's Georgia Straight, I got to see the advance screening of 'Maleficent'! Now, to be honest, I wasn't really wanting to see it when the trailers were coming out and everything, but hey, a free movie is a free movie! I enjoy the movie experience!

To be warned, there is quite a few twists from the original 1959 Disney cartoon movie and many twists from the Grimm's brothers' version. If you are dedicated to any of these versions, drop them to enjoy this movie!

Disney's latest version teaches us new lessons about love and our humanistic faults. The direction and production of this movie is spectacular! Disney stopped at no limit to get the effects right for all the magic that is Maleficent. And in casting Elle Fanning as the new Princess Aurora, they have an adorable princess! She looks more like a 16-year-old than the cartoon version ever did.

Angelina Jolie does a magnificent job as the evil faerie! (Yes, I spell faerie the old way. Don't hate me.) She portrays many emotions, one of which I wasn't a fan of, but she did an excellent job otherwise. The make-up and costume crew did a great job capturing the cartoon Maleficent. But all applause must be held (well, aside from the directing and acting) to the graphics team. The magic seen would not have been possible if not for the men and women behind the keyboards and tablets putting the fine, digital details on every sparkle and flame and star!

Like they have said in the interviews, 'Maleficent' makes you see the headlining character in a new fashion and the classic story in an enchanting tale. If someone were to pay for my ticket, I would go again. After all, a girl can only afford so many movies and there are just so many good movies coming out this year!

Just an Everyday Update



Howdy y'all! Today is my birthday, so I'm just gonna make a little post before heading off to bed.

I may have missed the Oscars last night, but I did not miss the big moments, and I definitely did not miss Ellen Degeneres's record-breaking tweet! That selfie pretty much sums up Ellen, the spin she put on the Oscars, and sums up our life as a social media generation! It was a very epic selfie.

Mostly this post was to share Sad Robot's newest album. Click play and listen to the first track, and then go find them on iTunes/Amazon, listen to more, and download!

Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games Update


So the game are winding down, people are becoming a little more celebratory, and everything is just so much fun now! But the energy is now intense. One of (if not the) biggest events comes up in about 8.5 hours, but there are medals to be awarded this day before last!

Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games Update


So... I really doubt you haven't heard, but Canada is going to the gold-medal game!!! My facebook was quite literally spammed with statuses and links to the semifinal win, and I'm pretty sure not a single Canadian hasn't heard about it yet. I was one of the few that couldn't watch because my work does not have a T.V, but the lot of us were checking our phones every minute!

Anyways point being, Canada defeated the United States 1-0 to go on to the gold medal game! Thank you to our hot defence - specifically Jamie Benn - for the lone goal! The US better be prepared to mend some broken hearts.

Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games Update


Okay, I'm sorry for missing a post yesterday, but I got home and pretty much passed out. On the bright side: I got a good 11-hour sleep! Hurrah for good sleep!

Anyways, while I rested well, I'm pretty a lot of Canadian women competing slept really well before today's day of competition. I hope you've all heard by now, but if you haven't, hit the jump!

Happy Birthday!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Happy birthday to my favourite nephew! The little champ has gone through a lot in just 6 years, but he is incredible (and whiny). As terrorising as you are sometimes (and annoying), I love you, stinkhead. I hope you continue to be healthy, a little crazy, and learn to be patient! Happy birthday, stinky head!

Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games Update


So in the time I have been absent (3 days, I think it's been), Canada has a total of seventeen medals! Four of them gold, nine silver, and four bronze! Germany still tops the medal board with the most number of gold (eight). Norway holds eighteen medals, Netherlands and USA are tied with twenty mendals, and Russia had ninteen.

If you wanna know what happened in Day 12, continue past the jump.
