Avast! The King Has Died

Last year in school I did a report on Little Richard. When i was researching I read a quote from People Magazine that claimed "There couldn't have been a Michael Jackson without a Little Richard" If that is true than Michael Jackson Sr. outlived Michael Jackson jr. I don't quite know how I feel about his death. You could never quite figure him out. Sometimes, he was a compassionate, caring, beautiful man. He sang "We Are The World" for starving people of africa. He cared so much about children, he opened up an amusement park, and he often invited sick kids to come, and sometimes he payed for kids to go on trips with their families around the world. He was so giving. But then there were parts of him that were sick, wrong, and nasty. Even though he may of thought he had good intent. Like, when he dangled his baby from the balcony of a 4 story german hotel, he was only trying to show the fans his kid, but.... it looked like he wanted to drop his baby. Then there was the time he molested a boy. He looked at it as sharing a bed with a little boy he loved, that needed love. But really, it was kind of a sick act against the law. Michael was everything, he was going places, he was a pop genius, charitable, and kind of creepy. Never thought I'd say this but: I'll miss you Michael.

Funny the Way Things Turn Out

It is 7:45 in the morning and I just woke up, I was sprawled out in the couch in yesterdays clothes, and my best friend was on the air matress, my best friends mom was asleep in my bed, and I was alone. I realized I fell asleep watching Yes Man! As did my best friend. I went to get my apple juice, and my mom woke up, telling me what happened, I wasn't too alarmed, because usually when my best friend and her mom come over, it becomes a sleepover. Last night, we were supposed to baby sit my best friend's mom's friend's kid, but we wound up at my other best friend's house eating Thai Food. It was a great night, funny the way thing turn out.

Move Along, Move Along Just To Make It Through

I never have quite understood the phrase "Keep Moving Forward." Everything in my life right now is just moving by so fast. In two more weeks I'll be done with school, my dad is entering his last course in primary school, then come this fall he goes off to Truman. (Nursing School) Isn't it okay to live in the past sometimes? Just to remember memories? I am so not saying that you should be living your high school years over again when your 40, I am just saying, can't we just remember? Take a break every so often and remember the beach last summer, or when we built this city on rock and roll?
Or can we just live in the now? I am not saying it isn't good to plan ahead, its good to now what is to come in the future. But is it really necessary to rush through every moment just so we can get to whatever is next, and rush through that. Do we always have to move along, can't we just rest, and enjoy the moment?

My Favorite Things

This is a song I wrote about my favorite things, In tune of The Sound Of Music Song: My Favorite Things.

Eight Year- Olds with muskets, and Stewie on Steroids
Bright Colored Converse, and 2012 crap that makes my best friend paranoid.
Reading  People about the latest flings.
These are a few of my favorite things.

Uncomfortable german leather sofas, and over protective vampires.
Fruity sugar free bubble gum, and  emos that wear sapphire.
Playing ROCKBAND® with my world's favorite kings.
These are a few of my favorite things.

Brand new wii games, and plans on the weekends.
Brand new wardrobes, and reading books from begining to end.
Spending the whole day with my framily in the midst of spring.
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the economy sucks,
When the world ends,
When I am feelings sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
Then I don't feel so bad

Friday night, there are a few ways to go. Some people think Friday night is the night to go to bed early, after a long week at work, or school. Others go out to the movies, or to a school dance, or maybe out to dinner. Ever since I got my ROCKBAND® video game for christmas, almost every Friday or Saturday night I have a few of my best friends over and we just sit there for hours, jammin' out. I see my friends almost every weekend, and as long as we are at my house, we get out the ROCKBAND® and drag a chair into the living room, one of us sits down to hit the little rubber drums with a fake wooden stick. The other plays guitar and presses the plastic buttons, and the other sings. Last night, I had 3 of my best friends over, and we started playing, but then we got all of our parents to play. so it ended with my living room being filled with 10 people, all singing and playing instruments. I have gotten almost all 13 of my friends and family to play ROCKBAND® life is good :)

In The News

I rarely ever blog about the news, except for now. My step-dad brought in the Suntimes from outside today, and one of the cover stories was about the Snuggie! Four million sold in 3 months! You would not think the snuggie would be so popular. Snuggies are all the rage,

Chicagoans snug it out
From the cult following of a monk-like wearable blanket to the smoky siren's song of sweet bacon, the latest hot trends in online interests are all about living in comfort

The holidays were, at best, restrained. The economy is lousy, and the weather nothing short of brutal. So where does a Chicagoan turn for comfort this winter?

The Snuggie.

The ubiquitous infomercial -- for a blanket, with sleeves in it -- has been running during prime time on Comedy Central, CNN and ESPN, demonstrating that the blanket with sleeves has endless uses. Use your laptop! Enjoy a snack! Snuggle your baby in your arms! Perfect for drafty dorm rooms!

"Every time the ad comes on, I elbow my husband and say, 'You can use your arms!' " says Jennifer Vaughan Martin of Lake View. "The people look so happy, and their lives seem so much more complete with the Snuggie."

Some fans sincerely want to be warm. Others are obsessed with the cultlike appearance of the robe blankets, comparing them to druids, sorcerers and "Star Wars" sand people. They post parody videos on YouTube. They popularize phrases such as "Snug it out."

During a season when everyone is trying to cut back, the $14.95 Snuggie seems like a luxury that's tantalizingly within reach.

"We got ours at Bed, Bath & Beyond," says Amy Korin of Old Town. "With a 20 percent off coupon, it came to $11.99." Her husband, Josh, had been begging for one. By the time they got to the store, just the blue Snuggies were left.

"We love ours," Amy says. "We sit in them all night long. We've answered the door in them. We've been cooking in them."

Her only complaint: massive static.

Josh says the Snuggie experience lives up to the infomercial. He does wish it had pockets.

In tough economic times, the Snuggie is a success story. For some, the extra layer of warmth is a way to reduce heating bills. For others, it's a grownup version of a security "blankie."

The Snuggie has been on the market for about a year, and the commercial began airing in August. There are plans to expand the line to include Snuggies for children, outdoor Snuggies and patterned Snuggies.

The universally unflattering blankets are tempting for a population that's snowed in. "It's not exactly a fashion statement one would be proud of," says Virl Seribo of Barrington. Still, "I think secretly, everyone wants one."

Jennie Shrader has just been waiting for the right time. "My mom broke her ankle by slipping on the ice a few days before Christmas, and I've been telling her now I have the perfect excuse to purchase them," she says. Order them by phone, and it's two for $19.95. "I can have one, and she can have one to keep her warm while she's laying down and recovering," Shrader says.

Advertising Age reports that more than 4 million Snuggies were sold in three months.

I mean really, all this time I thought the snuggie was just a joke, but no its a great idea! A actual non depressing news story! Its amazing!

What's Next?

I've only been to school once in the past week. From Friday to Friday. Yes, because we have had a lot of days off, and yes because I have been sick. I've had it all, a soar throat. A nasal congestion. A bad cough. Some headaches. Oh yeah, and now pink eye! Plus two weeks before I got the sick streak, I got stomach flu on New Years eve! Whoo-hoo! Doesn't that rock? I am getting better though, tomorrow I can go back to normal and see my friends and stuff.It took, two trips to the doctor, no milk or yogurt for a week, many hours of laying on the couch, and many glasses of juice to get this far. All I can say is, Good Riddance my cold, and please enjoy the next body.
I've watched a fair amount of TV this week, and there are two hilarious commercials.

The snuggie is really long, and the pockets are so big you can carry a turkey in them! I have one.

First Post Of The New Year

Sorry I have not posted for a while, with adjusting back to school, and the holiday rush I have been pretty busy. i guess to start, me and my older brother got a Wii for christmas. i have to say that was definitely one of the highlights of the last few weeks. That was what I really wanted, and I got it. New Years, was decent. Except I got stomach flu and was barfing my guts out an hour before 2009's arrival. So, I guess since I never got to do my new Years thing, I'll do the year in review a little l;ate this year. My opinionated best list of 2008.


In my opinion, all the music in 2008 sucked. Unfortunately Brittany Spears,made a bounce back. No one sparked very good music in 2008, but I barely managed to pull together a top five list.
5. I Kissed A Girl- Katy Perry
4. So What- P!nk
3. Gives You Hell- All American Rejects
2. Goodbye- Miley Cyrus
1. Fly On The Wall- Miley Cyrus

Now the five worst songs.
5. Womanizer- Brittany Spears
4. Disturbia- Rhianna
3. Love Bug- Jonas Brothers
2. Lolipop- Lil' Wayne
1. Low- T-pain
