Disney Princesses Meet the 21st Century Teen

Tried to do a quick list of the names of Disney Princesses WITHOUT searching for them on the Internet . Thought I could do it but I failed. Was able to draw at least ten from memory , listed below. After that I started going … UM … the one with red curly hair ??? ... and … Uuuummm … the two sisters in the “Frozen” animated flick … uuuhh … ???




  1. Snow White 
  2. Cinderella 
  3. Sleeping Beauty 
  4. Mulan 
  5. Ariel 
  6. Anastasia 
  7. Rapunzel 
  8. Tiana 
  9. Pochahantas 
  10. Jasmine


Times have sure changed from when I was a little girl. Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty - they were the ones that were role models. Each one of them ended up with the handsome prince, who took them to a beautiful castle home, and lived happily after. 

My youngest daughter is a budding teen, having just turned age 14 last week. Asked her the other day if she had a favorite Disney princess. 

Without skipping a beat, she passionately blurts out: “Anastasia, cause she don't need nobody to do nothing for her; and Tiana too, cause she worked!”

Oooookkkkayyy. Let me back away slowly from my little 21st century girl. :)

I Heart Foreign Movies

When I was a kid in Miami, Florida, the closest thing to foreign films were the Spanish channels, which I couldn’t really watch because I didn’t understand the language.  But now there’s YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, etc.  Unlimited films to choose from.  So many that it is often hard to choose.

Know of any foreign movies (i.e. non-American) available with English subtitles to watch? They could be Asian, European, African, Middle Eastern. No matter. If you think it’s worthwhile view, please make a suggestion.

Everything Must Change - Timeless Classic

"Everything Must Change" - In life, everybody sings this song, if they live.

"Everything Must Change" is one of those songs that if the artist dares to mess this up when performing it, there will be no forgiveness for sins. Nope!! The song police will be called by me and I will demand that they be arrested! STOPPED!!!



* Randy Crawford – who could never sing any song in a way that would displease anybody – sang this song and stamped it in my memory. Nobody has a voice like this woman.

* My husband found a rendition by the late but still awesomely great Nina Simone.

* Found a duet performance with the inimitably soulful Chaka Khan and unquestionably soulful Simply Red.

They can all relax. Will not have to call the song police for any of them.

  • IN MEMORY OF:  Nina Simone (1933 – 2003)

Bollywood (Hindi/Indian) Entertainment – Google+ Community

Well!  It was fun while it lasted!  Update Sep 2017.  The Bollywood (Hindi/Indian) Music – Google+ Community no longer exists. No biggie! 

Hurray for Bollywood!!

There is this wonderful community on Google Plus called “Bollywood (Hindi/Indian) Music” and members are asked to share Hindi/Indian music they like or love. 

Well so far two videos were submitted by me, but even though the Moderator accepted one of my posts, the music was actually American songs that had been performed by famous Bollywood stars. One by Shahrukh Khan, a timeless classic “Stand By Me” (accepted by the Moderator); and the other by Priyanka Chopra, a modern collaborative crossover effort with hip hop all-star Will I. Am, lead singer for the group Black Eyed Peas (rejected by the Moderator - No biggie!  It's cool!).

- plus.google.com/communities/109475555187175670421

The truth is there were so many songs and so much music from Indian films that I've enjoyed it was difficult to choose. The video below is a clip from a movie - “Yuvvraaj” - about 3 brothers; two of them fighting over an inheritance that was left to their brother who is extremely gifted but unable to care for himself. The stars are Salman Kahn, Katrina Kaif, Anil Kapoor. All of the music for this film is incredible! This performance by Anil Kapoor is unbelievable!!

Even though this music is not a throwback for me, it's going in my throwback collection anyway.

It's true music is universal, but … Hurray for Bollywood! :)

Science and Politics of Global Warming VS Climate Change

Science and Politics of Global Warming VS Climate Change

Once upon a time, I used to watch the Discovery Channel but no more. No point crying over spilled milk. Today I made a wonderful discovery. Discovery News which is under the corporate umbrella for the Discovery Communications, LLC, has a Tumblr blog, as do I. The difference between the DiscoveryNews blog and mine is that their blog actually adds value to world wide web and learning community; whereas my blog only oozes my personality. One thing leads to another and in visiting the blog it led me to a video which asked an interesting question: “Ever wonder what the difference between “global warming” and “climate change” is?”



My answer is “No.” Why would I wonder? They’re both the same thing. NOT!!

My bad! Trace Dominguez, the guy in the video totally straightened me out. He also clarified how the Republicans use the terms “global warming” and “climate change” which is a thought that had never crossed my mind.

I’m wondering if the guy actually wants me to take him seriously or if he was doing a comedy routine with a straight face. I can’t tell. (O.o) (???)

Here’s the link to the video.

Thoughts and Opinions : Global Warming Versus Global Returning? Science?

THOUGHT: Suppose global warming is actually global returning? Sharing these wacky thoughts of mine. Hoping you don't run away from me even though I speak my mind which is often ... kind of weird, strange and Krazee with a capital "K"! OK So!

World Music : Spotlight on Zaho, Algerian R&B Singer


Have always thought Algerian music had a moody, exotic, sensual vibe. Right? So tried to sign up at a site (a while back) to listen to Algerian radio stations. Could get other stations from other countries but for some reason could never get to hear music played on Algerian stations. Gave up trying!


Started watching foreign films with my SO (significant other) many moons ago and also began listening to singers from other countries or rather “world music”. You could say he opened up a new world for me; a fantastic point of view. :) But long before we ever met each other, the sound of people speaking in French has always captivated me. Mattered not what they were saying or singing – they could have been cussing at me - if it was in French it sounded way better than in English. Even people who RAP in French sound better!!



 
My SO (significant other) let me listen to this female singer called Zaho. Liked her sound. Did a little extra research on her. 

Zehira Darabid (born on May 10, 1980), known by her artistic name Zaho, is an Algerian R&B singer. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zaho
 
Algerian? Yeah. Uh huh. That figures. Oh well! At least access to her videos wasn't cut off from the American audience.

Inside AdSense: AdSense help, when and where you need it (Reblog)

How many times have you come close to pulling out all of your hair because you couldn't find an answer to a question about Google AdSense? Never? Ok! Then it's just me who is doing a happy dance in my chair because I finally struck gold! 


It's a Q & A gold mine of questions and answers about AdSense.


Where is it?  Uumm … at an official Google blog. (O.o)

Please! Don't ask me to supply a logical explanation for why I never looked! All I can say is sometimes the things that are clear and obvious don't always register in my brain. I'm like the rest of the brilliant scientists who get credit for their discoveries. Found out accidentally!  It's been discovered and that's what counts!






Another Awesome Discovery!

Country Music: Spotlight on Angel Taylor

Love country music. The songs have real words. Real words you can relate to! My first ever published article that appeared on the Internet with my name was a memorable moment. It was about a lovely young lady who at that time was deemed to be a rising star. How far she has risen as of today? Don't know. Have not had time to keep up with her career. But here I go again singing the same song I sang about her the first time I wrote about her.




* ( NOTE:  Link to archived content.)

She's a singer/songwriter and her name is Angel Mae Taylor. Sharing a link to the the video that won me over. Every time I make mention of her as a country music singer, people want to correct me.

I don't need to be CORRECTED!

Little Ms. Taylor needs to be DIRECTED.

The girl has talent! A mentor needs to take her by the hand and lead her down the path of country music. She need somebody like that guy Clive Davis was to the late Whitney Houston.

Been a part of the Google Plus social network for a few years and one of the fun things they do is called "Throwback Thursday". It is so fun. People share stuff from back in the day. Usually my shares are YouTube videos.

In Memory Of:
* Joe Cocker (1944 - 2014)



FYI. Definition of “throwback” from the Urban Dictionary.

The next YouTube could be a site where people watch other people play video games | Quartz (qz.com)

"It sounds like the worst nightmare of a 21st-century parent. Not only are the kids addicted to video games, they aren’t even playing the games themselves. Instead, they’re sitting in front of the computer watching other people play. Where, oh where, did we go wrong?  ... "

One could argue that it's just a form of entertainment like watching television.  But that's not even close to what this article is saying.  Because this article is not addressing adverse effects on the psyche of a child or young adult, or social responsibility implications.  It's just business.
