Touch my body?!

I must admit that I find Mariah Carey's song 'Touch my body' slightly inappropriate... For a close to 40-something-year old. I'm a big Mimi fan, but that song sounds like it should be sung by a 20-something-year old pop tartlet (Rihanna, Paris Hilton, Britney, Christina A, Kat Deluna etc).

Call me old fashioned if you will, but I do think that this idea of 'forever young/dumb/loose' is infuriating and it reduces women to being (only) tits, thighs & buns forever. I am truly of the opinion that every stage in our lives should be celebrated & embraced as opposed to us trying to be 21 FOREVER! That's my opinion!

Well, if you like me found Mimi's hit song disturbingly age-inappropriate, then you are going to love the clip below. Aretha Franklin (QUEEN OF THE WORLD) singing 'Touch my body'.


Maybe THEN...

Got nothing but love for the Queen though :)

"I sing to the realists; people who accept it like it is."

We are all going to hell...

...for laughing at this!!

It has been emailed to me so many times and people who dont even watch TV have been talking about it. I am very proud of the presenter for keeping calm. God bless her because I don't know if I could have kept a straight face LMBAO!!!

I'm really starting to like this way back when post (even though I started doing it last week). It was tough to decided what to pick because there were hundreds of things that I could have blogged about.

Today, it's another TV show: ALF!!! the show about an alien living with a seemingly normal family. He is rude, burps a lot, is very sharp & very short!!

Alf intro

My parents and I bonded over 80's sitcoms and this was one of them. Just watching that intro, I was about to burst into tears cause now all the children have is 'One on One' and 'House of Payne' (which is actually growing on me) LOL!!

Working in radio I never really did understand the fascination some people have with 'the-shout-out'. I don't mean people who call in once. I'm talking about people who call in everyday to say hello to the same person (or request the same song). But I think I understand it today.

I was checking up on some of my fave blogs when I came across this. EEEEEEEKKKK!! Fellow blogger Eish gives me a little shout out and I felt like somehow that was a sign from the universe that everything is as it should be and that I am on course.

"The sound is a little afro-jazzy, but with a hint of hip-hop here and there and there is just a small bit of pop infused in there as well... ok, if you enjoyed Lira (and I know many readers did!) then you will appreciate Black Porcelain's compositions. I capitulate!"

And a Lira comparison can never be a bad thing because Miss Lira makes quality music.

THANKS EISH!!! You are sooo on the list for one of my gigs LOL!

Check out the music here and if you are on FB then join my page! YAY!!!

The ultimate daddys-girl-movie

A few weeks ago me and my 2 fav people (Marcee & Junior) head on to the V&A because we feel like watching a movie, but have no idea what's on. The posters don't really look good, so we read one of those synopsis thingies they have for retarded people like us.

Everything seemed pretty lame until I came across this quote:

"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you. "

Sold! So we went ahead and watched TAKEN!

We really weren't expecting much, but it turned out to be worth our time. I'm not saying its going to win any Oscars but its very entertaining. It is definitely the ultimate daddy's-girl-flick. Every girl wants her father to save her from the worlds baddies. Not at all what I was expecting from Liam Neeson (but he did impress).

Check it out if you have a mo..

Sunday Sexy

I have been busy with some day-job stuff at the Natural & Organic Show this weekend. It was fun & I learned a lot about really going Organic & Green. I might even start doing a Green & Organic feature once a week.
But today is Sunday, so I thought we might enjoy some of Gods finest creatures. Today's gorgeously divine creature of God who recently had to give up being a vegetarian: JOSH HARTNETT!!!

His sexy makes no damn sense and I don't need it to. All I need is a weekend away in Zanzibar with this young man. He just does sexy, dirty & nerdy so well. I think its safe to say 'Thank God for Josh Hartnett!'

PS- Lucky Number Slevin was pretty dope (sexiness aside).

First: Apologies for going AWOL, I had many many many important things to take care of and I haven't had a minute to myself.

Now that apologies are out of the way. About 2 nights ago in bed I suddenly started humming a tune. It was a familiar tune, but I didn't know where it was from. After a while I realised that it was from a TV show I used to LOOOOOVVEEE when I was younger. I used to be a TV lover, now not so much.

So for Way-back-when-Wednesday I give you..... *drumroll* SMALL WONDER!!!

In retrospect, it was pretty bad. But hey I was about 8 or 9 so I guess I'm forgiven LMAO!!

Little Vicki aka Tiffany is now a nurse, well this is according to Prof Wikipedia. who would have thought?
