Beatle Mania!

I'm the first to admit that my taste in music borders on ridiculous. Give me a fun dance song and I'm happy. I'm not into those weird Disney "musicians" or anything but I do love some nice radio rap and fun pop music. I basically just want some funky ass beats I can jive too.

While as an adult I seem to be drawn to pop music, my musical past is firmly rooted in rock and roll, classic rock as the kids call it. People might think my first big concert would've been New Kids on the Block but in fact it was Paul McCartney! This is the music that makes me feel the most, makes me remember the most, the music I grew up loving to, laughing to, hating to. It's the music that has made me who I am.

I don't listen to it all the time anymore but like all the music in my life I become fixated and obsessed with a single album/song and I end up just listening to it over and over. Maybe I'm feeling overly sentimental or something. Maybe I just miss being a kid but I cannot stop listening to the Beatles!

i love the hipster hair. what's old is new again

over 40 years old and this song puts so many modern "rock" songs to shame!!

so good, this music just doesn't get old!

WTF Wednesday

What the F**k is up with Miley Cyrus? I don't understand why she seems to be Hollywood's newest "it" girl and why people think so highly of her! To me she seems like a mean girl who is slightly skanky and has bad posture; she is NOT someone who I would want my young daughter, sister, cousin, friend etc looking up to and/or emulating in ANY way!

i mean seriously people, she's like 16! how inappropriate can you be?!

i would like to say that she's just posing funny but let's get real she just has horrible posture!

Since we are on the topic of young Hollywood vixens WTF is the fuss with the Twilight kids?? Is it just me or do they just seem slightly unattractive and probably not very talented?

i don't think i can get over how weird the plot of these movies are. vampires that can be in daylight but only if it's foggy. that just doesn't even make any sense to me!
i don't care what kind of six pack this kid has, he isn't all that dreamy to me. he's just looks like a kid! but i know plenty of 30 somethings who love him! weird!
i just really don't find these two attractive. they are always just a little too disheveled for my taste. i sort of get robby's brooding english thing but i don't understand why kristen stewart seems so pissy all the time. maybe she's not naturally bubbly (i can sympathize for getting crap for that) but she seems annoyed to be doing interviews and things for movies she's getting paid to promote. like i get it, i often don't want to be at work but once i get to my job i gotta suck it up and be pleasant!

WTF Weds: Happy (?) St Patricks Day

Now I'm Irish so I guess I should think that St Patrick's Day is great but I actually don't understand it. When I was 19 I celebrated St Patty's Day by drinking from kegs of Green beer, either Bud Light or Natty Light (classy). However I haven't "celebrated" since then. I was invited to spend the day at the Hoboken St Patrick's Day recently and boy was it an experience, it's not a good sign when someone celebrates a major drinking holiday a week early! The drinking starts at 9am and the messiness starts around 9:45! I went because I'm trying to be more adventurous and so even though I am not a big fan of crowds or drunk young dudes I thought, what the hell?

I think my experience was tame in comparison to some of the other people I observed, but this was about as much St Patrick's Day celebrating as I can my life time! There are so many things I found wrong with a celebration that starts out by seeing young dudes puking in the streets and ends with cops and firefighter partying in their uniforms with what I can only assume are underage chicks. However what is right is catching the mayhem on photo and judging it later!

this was the scene at the train station. it was right around this time i began to rethink desire for adventure!

it's not very often i'm surrounded by such a lack of diversity. i believe my girls and i brought the flava and color to this party!

i was completely unaware of the dress code that included A LOT of uggs, 4 leaf clover tights and of course....

what st. patty's party would be complete without some sort of slutty leprechaun outfit?

my outfit included a hand dyed a tee shirt, my new fave olive green leather bag and to jazz it nail polish. that's about as spirited as i get!

i think it's very random that the police/fire department came to serenade the crowd with their bagpipe band...

but not nearly as random as them staying to party with the crowd after!

the whole thing seemed super weird to me. i guess that's how they roll over in Jerz...?

i spent most of the day filled with judgment but i did manage to also have fun, i really enjoyed my group of friends and at the same time made some new ones!

Creepy TV Moment

Last night while watching Oprah the camera man panned the audience and caught a man caressing his boo's hand in the creepiest way! I had to share!

The Winner...?

I don't know if I would consider winning the heart of the most boring man in history a success but I'm sure this chick Vienna does. I only watched the last 15 seconds of this season's Bachelor and it was enough to know that he's a yawn fest and she has the wonkiest eyes ever!
Here's hoping they live happily ever after.

It's Hard Out There For a Pimp

Let's face it, dating is hard! Dare I say that dating in New York is harder than most places? Recently while on a let's-meet-for-a-drink-situation-to-see-if-can-actually-stand-you thing I was told that the dating pool in New York was 60% women, 40% men. Thanks buddy, as though I needed to be reminded of that little fun fact at that particular moment! However the young fellow was speaking the truth, men have their pick of so many fantastic, successful, beautiful women and these same women seem like they are fighting for the 10 nice, emotionally available, relatively attractive/successful straight and actually single guys that are left! I want to believe that this theory was just a result of having an overly cynical possibly hormone charged day. I know single ladies out there like to complain about how there's a total shortage of good men in NYC and that the men they do meet are either not interested in a relationship or already married but I mean, it can't possibly be that bad out there can it!?
Well apparently it can be that bad out there! Apparently women will settle for just about anything...even a d-bag looking thief with a huge coke problem! I think it's absolutely crazy that this guy can find a partner not once but twice! Who cares if he's a felon, at least he's ready for a relationship? How sad...
In a city where living in a different borough can be a deal breaker for people; how is getting busted for stealing almost 20 million not a deal breaker?
