Did you catch the premiere of Mariah Carey's latest single on American Idol last night? Mimi's "#Beautiful" track is the first off of her forthcoming 2013 album, and the video features the diva—clad in a trendy cutout bikini—hitching a motorcycle ride with R&B singer Miguel. The feeling of the video hearkens back to her '90s Mariah videos, complete with must-have Mariah elements like perfectly-hitting sunlight (
Hopefully, I’m not too late for this…Just discovered it today.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 15,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 3 Film Festivals
Something to be proud of and absolutely thankful for the WordPress family!

Ever since I was a child, my parents influenced me by having tennis channel on for many hours a day. Watching tennis being played on the terre battu (clay court) would probably have to be my favorite. Therefore, my preferred
grand slam would also be Roland Garros held in Paris, France, every May. umm..As yo
u may infer, that opinion is super biased. I enjoy watching tennis and playing the sport. I played it for about 4 years and previous to that, I played badminton and won several awards for the primary school team. Thanks to my parents, they have pushed me to always remember to follow an active lifestyle.
I have ‘followed’ Rafael Nadal since the start of his early professional tennis career. I have seen him grow from an amateur to the King of Clay, and to the #1 player in the world, which means I saw him through the ups and downs.
What has always impressed me about Nadal is his surrounding of a lovely and supportive family. I know that his Dad and Mom divorced, but no matter what happened between the couple, both parents know that Nadal is ‘their’ son, which is why both try to attend their son’s tennis matches. Also, his Uncle Tony has been coaching him from the ripe age of 6, and Nadal has never changed coaches. *loyal student*
Nadal says his family and support team cocoons him from distracting mud that comes with money and fame. According to Nadal’s mother, Nadal is a very sensitive boy who has full of fears. As an example, he dislikes the dark, and he prefers to sleep with the light turned on. He also isn’t safe around lightnings; when he was a child, he’d hide under the cushions.
As for food preferences, he hates cheese tomato, and ham- which is the national dish of Spain…
Nadal’s girlfriend is very down-to-earth and hides in the limelight. She believes that traveling everywhere with her boyfriend would not be healthy for either party. She has a degree in business administration and a full time job with an insurance company in Mallorca. If she were to follow him, she imagines that there would be a risk that they might stop
getting along. She isn’t looking to be on headlines and seen around with her beau. She chooses to remain the ‘earthly’ girl that she has always been.
She says, “Even if my family asks me about Rafael, I prefer not to say much. The fact is that I don’t feel comfortable talking about these things in private. It’s what works for me, and what works for Rafael and me as a couple.”
Merry Christmas WordPress!
I decided to venture a little deeper to the dark side.. I wanted to have fun and play around with what I could do.
I can imagine this character/model to be The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I feel that they both have similar styles.
Thanks for reading!
First of all, thanks Netflix!
I hear that it’s spreading to Scandinavia:) Awesome-Cause this movie is Swedish!
With adequate acting and filming(this film was nominated for the Oscar Foreign Film)the film captures the heart and determination of living in a world where evil reigns (during the aftermath of the WWII) and the underdog must choose to stand up or take it. Take the risk and watch it….
Brief Summary- The plot isn’t as simple as it sounds.This little gem tells the story about a boy, Erik,
who suffers at the hand of a nasty father in law (deliciously played – you really wont like him!). Erik beats up a class mate in school and gets sent away to a snooty private school where he refuses to succomb to the hazing. The toffee nosed rich kids decide to make Erik submit, but he won’t. This is where Ghandi and a pretty maid comes into the story, but see for yourself. This is not a love story, it is about a boy who doesn’t want to be like his stepfather or his tormentors and succeeds – almost.
Having watched it I found myself questioning my own evils and realized that the definition of it isn’t always so obvious. For that reason alone, it was a thought provoking and worthwhile watch. Overly dramatic at times, but still an intriguing watch.
This is where humans are put to the very brink of the fall. Are you prepared to watch the thought-provoking Evil?
Thanks for reading,

Sings the now 20-year-old Christopher on his first single, Against the Odds(2012)! Christopher’s voice is fantastic and the song that has received much praise is straight up pop music at its very best!
Prior to recording the single, Against the Odds, he did a cover version of Robyn hit ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ . It has more than 500,000 hits on Youtube currently. Quite good for the completely unknown singer.
But what happened before this huge success ? An 18-year-old guitar-player Dane just impressed a few friends and then he was persuaded to visit the Danish records. He kept practicing and practicing to play guitar with the internet as a teacher, singing all his favorite songs by Jason Mraz and John Mayer. And it’s an absolute success!
If you’re not affected by the young man’s intense voice paired with his naturalness and charm, you must be a pretty harsh critic.
It’s been half a year of hard work. Time is spent on finding just the right sound and style, a lot of hours with the guitar and the net, a lot of listening to the idols as Maroon 5 and The Script, and then also not forgetting his student-life.
Check out his hit single ‘Against the Odds’ (Congratulations on reaching more than a million views!)
and..his looks do kill.
