My First Top Ten - For This Blog.

I have done a lot of 'Top Ten' blog posts in my blogging history.  But, as I am approaching this particular blog as an entirely brand new blogging venture, and as I have chosen for it to now be a 'lifestyle blog' and not based around celebrity news and gossip as it was before, I feel that this warrants being my first top ten blog post on Dolly Wolly Wombat.

These are the top ten things I am loving right now.

10) Yankee Candles.

Everybody loves Yankee Candles.  Right now I am burning Snow In Love, and I know it is nowhere near Christmas yet, but to be honest I don't think it matters.  Not to me anyway.  I have a little stash of the Yankee Candle votives in a drawer and Snow In Love was the one I picked out.  I still have Black Coconut, Lemongrass and Ginger and Red Raspberry left! And they all smell divine.  I just love Yankee Candles.

9) Hollyoaks.

I am not a really big soaps fan at all, but Hollyoaks is the only one that I will watch.  I have been watching if for a few years now and I just love it.  I like practically all of the characters in it at the moment, although I will say my two favourites are James Nightingale and Grace Black because they are for the most part, intriguingly devious.   I did love Lindsay Roscoe too when she was in it, and so far 'The Gloved Hand Killer' is my favourite storyline this year.  Brilliantly acted and they made it suspenseful too. 

8) My Car.

I have a grey Ford Focus which I bought earlier on in the year.  It is five doors, has loads of boot space, alloy wheels and it drives like a dream.  I am so happy with it.  Probably the best £1,300 I have ever spent!

7) Money Boxes.

I am really big on saving money, I always have been to be fair.  I currently have several money boxes, in fact, I have just counted them, I am using five in total.  So, I have a box that I put all loose change in, so 20ps, 10ps, 5ps and copper coins.  You would think that would be enough but no, I also have a unicorn money box for 50ps only, and I have small box where £2 coins live, and the other two I have are specific tins that I bought off Amazon for about £4 each.
You can save £500 in each of these.  They are brilliant.  I wouldn't mind a couple more actually so I will be keeping a look out for different designs.

6) Sausage Rolls.

This is purely because I am eating one right now.  With ketchup.  And it is yummy.

5) Unique Plaques.

There are loads of these about at the moment mainly, in The Range.  I love The Range, it is quite possibly the best shop ever for gifts and gift ideas.  I love it.  I spend ages in there when I go.  But you can buy these plaques anywhere.  These particular ones that I got I bought from a card shop.  I gave the 'If Things Seem Dark Focus On The Brightest Stars' one away as a gift, but the 'Always Believe That Something Wonderful Is About To Happen', I might end up keeping for myself.

We shall see.  I do love them both.

4) My 'I Think I'm A Part-Time Unicorn' pyjamas.

These were bought for me from a friend for my birthday which was on August the 12th, and I absolutely love them.  Mainly because I am obsessed with unicorns anyway.

It just looks so cute.   I love them.  And they are really comfy too.   Who doesn't love a pug dressed in a pink jumper pretending to be a unicorn anyway?!

3) My Paint By Numbers.

I used to do loads of these when I was younger and it has only been in the last year I have started doing them again.  I just love it because it is so therapeutic and it makes me chill out which is great particularly after a busy day in work.  It does take time, but the end result makes it so worth it.  I have done five in the last nine months or so, and I love doing them either on my days off or at night after work for a bit.  I am a perfectionist by nature so they can take me a while to do, but it is something I really enjoy.

2) My Notebooks.

Every writer loves their notebooks, and since I have started blogging I have noticed that I am using a notebook to write my posts long-hand all the time now.   It doesn't matter if I am just writing down bullet points, or writing out an entire post from start to finish over the space of 6 pages, I still use a notebook.  At present I a using a hardback A5 fairy notebook, but it is nearly full, I only have a few pages left.  I do have a new one ready though.  That notebook actually reads 'Amazing Things Will Happen'.  I think it is really cool.

1) My New York City Bedding I Got For My Birthday.

So this bedding set really is awesome.  I love New York city!

That is the pillow, I thought it showed you the picture a bit better.  The colours in it are just amazing, they are so vibrant.  This bedding was a gift for my birthday off my nan, which I picked off the internet.  It is really lovely quality, and it washes really well too.  And yes I am aware I have taken a few previous photos for this post on this bedding prior to me revealing my number one spot, but hey, it makes a great photo backdrop!!  That is my excuse anyway.  This bedding looks amazing.

Thanks for reading.

So I Am Testing This Blog Still Works...

I cannot believe how long it has been since I have been on this blog.  I never really wanted to get rid of Dolly Wolly Wombat (former nickname of mine) so I have just left it to one side I guess, but now I just wanted to see if it still works.  This was my very first blog, and I really used it to report and give my opinions on celebrity news and gossip.  I mainly do that with my other blog.  Now I am considering using this as my lifestyle blog instead....

So this post is a little test...I am testing pictures and text and just everything in general.  I am quite happy with it.  And I have learnt an awful lot since I started blogging which I think was in 2010!! 
My other blog is The Longitude Of Life,  so check that out too if you get the chance.   I have decided that I might be able to make something of Dolly Wolly Wombat after all.

So watch this space.  I am now going to try and put this on Twitter and see if that works too.

Thanks for reading.

I Am Going To Tell Everyone Now... I Have A Wordpress Blog Too.

I like to write!!!

I was just intrigued to see what it was like...on the other side, and I do like the set up I will have to admit.  My new site is called Longitude Of Life.

If anyone would like to check it out.  I am still keeping this blog for the time being too, as it has done so well.  If anyone would like to give me any feedback on this let me know on here, via email, or on my new site.  I am just wondering whether Wordpress is the way forward, as I was hoping Blogger would have gotten me further than I have.

Thank you all again for reading.

Is Watching Pirates Of Caribbean At Worlds End.

I like to write!!!

This is the one that I don't remember much.  I can actually only remember the ending.  I thought the character of Captain Jack Sparrow was really weird in this movie as well, it was like he was constantly pissed,  but I still love it.  The second movie is really my favourite out of all of them, but this one was quite clever.

Omar Sharif Has Died.

I like to write!!!

The great actor, who was also suffering from Alzheimer's, has passed away of a heart attack, in a hospital in Cairo.  He was 83 years old.  He rose to stardom in the 1963 movie Lawrence of Arabia, which I didn't know, was his first English language movie.  The role also earned him an Oscar nomination too, which I did know.  His last feature film was in 2013, and he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in May of this year.  Very sad.  I have seen Lawrence of Arabia, but it has been a few years now.  I should really watch it again soon.

Rest in peace.

Has Been Watching A Preview Of The New Entourage Movie.

I like to write!!!

I have never actually watched the show itself, obviously I know Jeremy Piven from Mr.Selfridge, and I know of Kevin Dillon, because he is the brother of Matt Dillon, but despite this I thought their new movie looked quite interesting.  It looks like it could be a laugh so it might be worth a watch at some point.  I think just because you don't watch a particular show, doesn't mean you won't like the movie they have made.  

Daniel Radcliffe Has Won Rear Of The Year.

I like to write!!!

I am really pleased, I love Daniel Radcliffe.  And he has even beaten Jamie Dornan to the title too, which to be fair I am a little surprised at, with him being in Fifty Shades of course.  And he was gorgeous in that too.  Daniel Radcliffe always has a special place in my heart though, so I send my congratulations to him.  It is like he has won an Academy Award for the Best they say.  I love it.

I Have Decided To Change The Look Of My Blog.

I like to write!!!

I haven't changed it for a while.  But thought it might help me...hopefully.  I think it is about time my blog is refreshed a bit.  I have still kept it simple, simple but effective...hopefully.  I hope everybody likes it.

I Don't Think Much To Kim Kardashian' s Latest Photo Shoot Either!

I like to write!!!

I really hate to say it, because I do love Kim Kardashian, she is a stunning looking woman, must of the time, but these pictures are just bloody awful.  They are in The Mirror.

 I mean, she actually looks a bit trashy in it.  For a start, she suits her hair darker, in my opinion, secondly, the black stockings look horrendous, and thirdly the way she shows her bottom off is way too provactive, it's too too early in the morning for that.  Is this on page 3?  Maybe it should be if it isn't already.   She even ruined her suede boots climbing up the rubble.

Not the best picture I have seen her do.  Kim Kardashian needs to dye get hair back dark, because she suits that better, and stop doing off her arse so much.  There is nothing wrong with a nice dress you know!!!

Jennifer Lawrence Gets Excited At Meeting Bill Murray.

I like to write!!!

It is proof that Jennifer Lawrence is indeed Hollywood's biggest fan girl, and could not contain her excitement when meeting Bill Murray for the first time backstage at Comic-Con.  She apparently 'geeked' out, (I love that expression, that's exactly what I would do too), and started taking several pictures of both her and Bill Murray, and presumably gushing about how much of a fan of his she is.

Let's be honest, we would all do that.  For me it would not matter who it was in Hollywood I met, Bill Murray, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Ben Affleck, Leo DiCaprio....I would be talking pictures and telling them how wonderful I thought they were too.

Fantastic picture.  Jennifer Lawrence did look excited...And Bill Murray just looks cool.  I love it when celebrities meet other celebrities.  It's great.

Celebrity News Today

I like to write!!!

Rob Lowe has called Ariana Grande' s apology 'lame'.

So Ariana Grande is filmed, licking a doughnut, and saying 'I hate America'.  Is this because America has lots of delicious food that is hard to resist?  Unfortunately her 'I hate America' comment has got her into some really hot water.  Maybe people suddenly thought she was anti-America or something as her remarks started trending.  So she apologized, saying she did not mean for it to sound that way, but Rob Lowe, famous for The West Wing, has called her apology lame because it was such a stupid thing to say.  You don't just go around saying you hate America just because it gives you doughnuts!!!  And, she is supposed to be an advocate for healthy eating, and preventing child obesity, which also is a big thing in America.  I think it was just a slip of the tongue, she didn't think anyone was watching her.  Best thing she can do is to put things right.  But others need to allow her to do so.  Cops are investigating the video now.

Bill Murray makes his first Comic-Con appearance.

Bill Murray, who, I am surprised this is his first appearance at Comic-Con, being in the original Ghostbusters I thought he would have got involved by now.  But this is his first time, and he is promoting his new movie, Rock The Kasbah.  In the movie he takes a young Afghan star to Kabul to enter an America's Got Talent style show.  Knowing Bill Murray, I can imagine it might be quite funny too.  I am glad he had finally appeared at Comic Con.  It would have been amazing if all of the original Ghostbusters stars could have got together at Comic-Con.  Obviously that is no longer possible following the passing of Harold Ramis.  I am pleased for Bill Murray though.

Jaden Smith Is Seventeen Today.

How the years have flown by.  I remember when he was in The Pursuit Of Happyness with his dad.

And his mother, Jada Pinkett-Smith posted this message.   Which I think is sweet, but kind of cringy at the same time.   I wonder if he will keep on making movies when he is his dad's age?


Tom Selleck Has Been Accused Of Stealing Water.

He has been stealing truckloads of water from a public hydrant to help keep his California ranch and Avocado farm looking 'lush', apparently.  Sneaky bugger!! The residents of the state have been ordered to cut water because of the drought.  Naughty Tom Selleck.  You will be getting into some crap for doing that.  It's not fair on everyone else that he gets to water his avocado farm, and everyone else suffer.  That's just really bad, and selfish.  I should imagine he will be receiving a hefty fine for that one.

Pals Tell Scott Disick To Go Into Rehab.

I like to write!!!

Since his recent split with Kourtney Kardashian, it seems as though Scott Disick has fallen off the wagon a bit.  From watching the TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, I always felt that Kourtney always kept Scott on tight leash.  Now they are not together anymore, Scott had gone back to his party hard ways, and just recently missed his three year old daughter's Birthday.  He must have got some serious crap for that.   Since the mishap, Scott's mates have been trying to get him some help.  He is supposed to be doing a gig this Friday too, hosting a party, and his friends have told him to cancel for Kourtney and the kid's sake.  Whether he will or not is another matter.

I feel so sorry for Kourtney.  And especially the children.  Scott Disick is just being a dick!!!  I think he needs to think about his family more and get himself some help.  He should listen to his friends.

The Backlash For Marisa Tomei' s Aunt May Has Started.

I like to write!!!

I have been waiting for this.  You just knew someone somewhere was just going to pipe up and say she is far too young to play the part of Aunt May in the new Spiderman.  I did say she was an interesting choice, but then I thought, if we have a younger Spiderman, surely we should have a younger Aunt too.  I mean, it's not Great Aunt May is it?!   If you understand what I am saying.  They are obviously trying to get the ages of the characters in line.  I mean, Tom Holland is only nineteen, so I think Marisa Tomei is a great choice for the character of Aunt May, in my opinion.  At the same time I wish Hollywood would create more opportunities for the more mature actors and actresses out there, so that I will say.  But for now, I am happy with the way the new Spiderman franchise is coming along.  We shall just have to see how Marisa Tomei does with her new role.

The Six Actors Who Could Play Hans Solo In The New Star Wars.

I like to write!!!

This is really cool, Hollywood have just announced that they want to do a spin-off Hans Solo movie, which in itself sounds amazing already.  The want to do his 'humble' beginnings, which sounds great, I have always wanted to know how the character of Hans Solo came about too.

If course, being Hollywood, they have already got six actors lined up who could be possibles to play the iconic role.  Being me, I have already decided who out of this stuff I would like to play Hans Solo.....but I bet he doesn't get it.

1) Ryan Gosling.  And yes, this is who I want!!! He is gorgeous, and he is perfect for the role.  Because he has charisma.  Gosling would definitely be my first choice.

2) Garrett Hedlund.  I am really sorry, I have to be honest, I don't know who this is.  Apparently, he was in Tron Legacy, which I have not seen.

3) Scott Eastwood.  Possibly.  I do like Scott Eastwood, he does have a mysterious side to him and I haven't seen all of it.  He was very good in Fury.  I just wonder whether he would be a bit too serious for the role.

4) Chris Pine.  Now interestingly, he could definitely play the role.  The argument that it's already circling is can he play two iconic role in his acting career and play them well.  We all know he did a great job in the Star Trek movies as James T. Kirk, but could he pay Hans Solo too?  Even I am not so sure.

5) Nicholas Hoult.  I am not so sure.  I do love Nicholas Hoult, but I just cannot see him playing Hans Solo.  Maybe it's because he has such a young face.  He doesn't look...rugged enough.  I really can't see him in the role, he just doesn't look right.  Sorry.

6) Aaron Paul.  Again, a possibility.  After being in Breaking Bad, he definitely looks like he has a dark enough streak to be in Start Wars, but Hans Solo, I thought he had a bit of humour attached to him and I'm not sure Aaron Paul could pull it off either.  He looks like the part, but could he act it?!

All things considered, if I had to pick out of this list who was most likely to get the part, I would say Chris Pine.  I don't care that he had played James T Kirk, who says an actor can't pay two iconic roles!!  However I secretly would love it too be Ryan Gosling.  I think if he was to get the role it would prove he could expand on his versitily as an actor.  I just wonder whether it would be too much of a risk.

You never know, it might not be any of these actors.  But it is still interesting to explore the possibilities.

Would Like To Say A Big Thank You To My Readers.

I like to write!!!

I had a record account of views yesterday, 777 to be exact, which is weird because I do know that is a lucky number.  So thank you everyone.  I still enjoy writing my blog and I will keep at it.  If anyone would like to give me any feedback, I have my Gmail account..., and my Yahoo mail too, which is, if anyone would like to email me, and my Twitter is Phoenix1924!

Thanks again everyone.  Keep reading.

Interesting Choice For Spiderman's New Aunt May.

I like to write!!!

Marisa Tomei has got the role in the new Spiderman movie, which makes her the youngest Aunt May to grace the Spiderman franchise.  So, at fifty years old, Tomei will be the youngest actress to play the role, behind Sally Field who was sixty-six years old in The Amazing Spiderman.  Well to be fair, they are looking at a younger Spiderman, so really the movie makers are keeping in line with the ages of all the characters, so I do get where they are coming from.  I am really looking forward to seeing the new movies, I just hope they have the same impact as the others have in the past. 

Has Been To See Minions Movie.

I like to write!!!

It was brilliant.  So funny.  Loved Sandra Bullock as Scarlett Overkill, the baddie too.  What a great name that is!!  But the Minions themselves were so funny, especially at the beginning.  Very clever with the storyline too at the end...I won't spoil it in case anyone hasn't seen it yet.  But they were just so cute.  I have decided I want a toy minion now.  I don't care what anybody says about that.
If you haven't seen the movie yet, go see it.  It's really funny.  I thought it was very good. 

Celebrity News Today......

I like to write!!!

Johnny Depp Visits Sick Children.

Johnny Depp aka the one and only Captain Jack Sparrow, has paid a visit to a children's hospital in Queensland Australia.  One child was having dinner with his mother when Johnny Depp, sorry Jack Sparrow's helicopter landed on the lawn beside them.  How amazing is that.  Jack Sparrow then went from room to room to all the children who could not get out of bed to say hello.  That is amazing!!! What a guy.  I love you Johnny Depp!!!

Jennifer Garner Has Been Spotted With Her Wedding Ring On.

So Ben Affleck has flown to Atlanta to be with her and their children as Garner returns to work....wearing her wedding ring.  But there is some speculation that it might actually just be a prop for a movie instead.  Or maybe it is just that she hasn't taken it off yet.  Loads of celebrities end up doing that.  Then what usually happens is someone points it out live on TV, generally, then they take it off!  Affleck has to be back at the weekend because he is appearing at Comic Con.  Now that is an important gig not to miss.

Kourtney Kardashian Is Single And Ready Mingle.

She has been spotted out with her sisters, Khloe and Kim at dinner, dressed in white..... the colour of purity????  We shall have to see about that.  But I have to admit, having watched some of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, I didn't really like Scott Disick anyway.  He seemed a bit of a slimeball in my opinion.  I think Kourtney is better off without him.

Jeff Goldblum Has A Baby Boy With Wife Emilie.

This is the pair's first child too, with Jeff Goldblum entering fatherhood at a ripe 62 years of age.  Better late then never as they say.  And they have called the little boy Charlie.  I love that name.  The couple tied the knot back in November after years of dating too.

And apparently....

A Beyoncé Inspired Skyscraper Is Being Built.

Oh my God...seriously???  Apparently so.  I personally am not a huge fan of BeyoncĂ© myself, however this building...if it does go ahead and get built, would be quite interesting to see nonetheless.  The video for her single 'Ghost' was a contributing factor in the design of the skyscraper, which is said to able to house 660 apartments, a 160 room hotel and retail stores.  Bloody hell that is going to be massive.  And it would cost a fortune to stay there too.  I bet people will though.  I am actually really intrigued by this.  I hope they do go ahead and do it.  I'll never be able to afford to stay there, but I would love to see all of the pictures.

Joni Mitchell To Make A Full Recovery

I like to write!!!

Celebrity News Today.

Back in March Joni Mitchell suffered a brain aneurysm.  Many reports suggested she was close to death, in a coma, could not feed herself, that kind of thing.  As it turns out, all of those seemed to have turned out to be false as the doctors are now saying she is expected to make a full recovery.  It says that recently singer David Crosby paid her a visit at home, and said that her health is improving.  But some reports are conflicting because, however at the same time, a report came out that recently Crosby was concerned that Joni was not able to speak when he saw her.  Sounds as though someone is bending the truth here.

Nonetheless the reports do say that Joni Mitchell is to make a full recovery, and if that is true then good luck to her, and I hope she feels better.  I think it is a case that some people simply just need to get all their facts straight before opening up to the Press.

Disney Are Removing It's Bill Cosby Statue From It's Hollywood Studios Theme Park.

I like to write!!!

Celebrity News Today.

I saw that last year too, when I went back to Walt Disney World.  The head and shoulders of Bill Cosby seated on a podium, and pretty soon, unless they have done it already, it will be there no more.  I even have a photo of it somewhere.  There are still a lot of people, like Whoopi Goldberg who are still backing Bill Cosby and still believe the rape allegations are false.  I am not sure at this point and it is because he has recently admitted getting a prescription drug Quaaludes ( which I have just had to look up ) it is a sedative-hypnotic drug, that he was obviously using on women.  So he has admitted to that, and the women involved in the case have also come forward to say they had taken that drug in different forms as well. 

So, as upsetting that is, I think Disney were right to take down the statue of Bill Cosby.  How can Disney have someone like him associated with them now?  Even if proof suddenly surfaced somewhere in the void that he didn't commit these terrible acts...his reputation has already been completely destroyed.  Disney have to protect their own.

Caitlin Jenner Has Penned Her Own Blog.

I like to write!!!

I have started to have a read of it and it is very good.  I love her layout.  Not sure what platform she uses but it certainly looks very nice.  Nice and light.  I am impressed with her 'Resources' section.  I wasn't quite sure what to expect but the first thing on that list is 'Suicide Prevention'.  In order of importance, I would definitely put that top of the list, followed by her number two, Equality Advocates, and then Legal Help.

I think it is a great layout.  I think I shall put her blog on my reading list.  You can tell it is still in the process of being made, but that is ok, these things take time.

Has Watched The First In The Series Of The Black List.

I like to write!!!

What a great pilot!!! I have seen The Blacklist advertised for a little while on Sky TV, but didn't really think much of it, other than the fact I thought it was quite intriguing to see the actor James Spader was in it.  James Spader, who I saw last in....would you believe, the movie Stargate.  I loved that movie.  It was weird but I loved it.  So, I have always seen it advertised so I thought I would give it a watch.  I have already seen one episode....And already I am hooked.  I have not worked out Spader' s character's motive just yet....but that will come in time.  I am really excited about this show!!!

So, I Have Just Treated Myself To A Pair Of Converse.

I like to write!!!

I usually don't post stuff like this on my blog now. I normally just keep it strictly to celebrities and movie gossip, etc.   But I don't tend to spend a lot of money on myself at all.  And I just decided that I would love a pair of Converse.  Despite their popularity, it's taken me years to actually get some for myself.  So I have finally bought a pair for myself, which were less than half price (they are black and white ones) so that it's definitely a 'win' for me.  They are called The All Star Studded Ox.  And, they were half price.  Go me!!!

Damon Albarn Gets Literally Carried Off Stage.

I like to write!!!

I love Damon Albarn, because he is so, very passionate about his music and especially more so about his band, and his fans.

So he was playing a gig in Denmark recently, that basically lasted so long (just over five hours apparently) that security had to step in to stop them.  Albarn had just started singing The Clash: Should I Stay Out Should I Go.... (at what? 2am ish probably, it doesn't actually say) when security walked on stage, picked Albarn up, and carried him off.  That is amazing.  Damon Albarn is a legend.

He wanted to keep going!!!

Bless him.

I Have Just Watched The American President.

I like to write!!!

When I mean The American President, I am referring to the movie, starring Michael Douglas, Annette Bening and Martin Sheen.  I have seen it before, like many movies but it has been years since I have seen this one.  I was firstly surprised, yet not shocked that it was written by Aaron Sorkin, who of course went on to write The West Wing starring Martin Sheen as the President, which I thought was a very interesting piece of information that I did not know before.

I was also quite upset...and I have checked (I have been scrawling through the archive on IMDB) that the movie itself, and none of it's actors, writers...nobody basically, was nominated for an Oscar.  It was an absolutely terrific movie as well.  I actually think it was one of Michael Douglas's best performances as an actor.  It obviously was not in the Oscar season 'catchment area'. 

I did enjoy it though, it is a great movie.

Disney's Gaston Dies In Firework Accident.

I like to write!!!

The actor, who plays the character of Beauty and the Beast's Gaston in the Florida Disney theme park, had tragically died after setting off a firework from on top of his head.  Devon Staples was only 22 years old.  He was out drinking with friends to celebrate the fourth of July holiday, and placed the rocket on top of his head as a joke as his friends urged him not to set it off.  But when you are under the influence of alcohol, people do stupid things.  I am really sad, this was the same actor who I saw when I went to Florida last August.  What a waste.  His poor family!!

Ashton Kutcher And Mila Kunis Are Married.

I like to write!!!

The pair have finally tied the knot over the July 4th holiday weekend.  Having first met back on That 70s Show back in the late nineties, the pair have dated other people throughout the years, but still remained friends.  The two found love in recent years and has a child and now they have made their relationship official.  That is so sweet.  It's like they were meant to be.  Soul mates!!! Sometimes all you need is a bit of time, then one day that right person will come along.

Simon Cowell' s Mother Has Died.

I like to write!!!

Poor Simon!!! He must be heartbroken.  Julie Cowell passed away on Sunday, but no other details have been released as of yet as to how she died.

The current X Factor auditions have also been halted for a few days, out of respect for Simon and his family.

I don't like waking up to sad news!!!

Kate Hudson Sings The National Anthem.

I like to write!!!

Admittedly I forgot it was the fourth of July yesterday.

Well she seems like she is enjoying herself.  Not sure I would be singing that at 5am in the morning, I don't think I would be awake.  Her T. Shirt is quite interesting-looking too.  Apparently it wards off evil. 

Kate Hudson also seems to be fine after hearing that her father, Bill Hudson , has disowned her and her brother, which is awful of course.  Perhaps that is why she was wearing the T. Shirt.  Kate and Oliver were mainly raised by Kurt Russell, Goldie Hawn's long time partner.  Sounds like they are a lot better off because of this.

New Batman Movie Picture.

I like to write!!!

He looks like he is wearing metal armour here.  How strange!  Batman is supposed to have a rubber outfit, not a metal one.  Seems to me like they are doing that a lot recently, especially in The Avengers.  Perhaps it is supposed to give the character a bit more 'impact' for the audience?  Maybe on screen it will look better?  It doesn't make much difference to me.  I will still love the movie anyway.

I still cannot wait to see Ben Affleck as Batman.  I hope he pulls it off.

Hoffman Blasts Hollywood.

I like to write!!!

Dustin Hoffman has had a pop at the Hollywood movie industry, saying that the way it stands at the moment, American TV, it's better than the movies are right now.  And I do sort of agree with him.  Some movies out there I know are doing really well, like Jurassic World, and The Minions... but others like Ted 2 and Insidious Chapter 3 should be doing better, and they just are not appealing to audiences right now.   I was looking forward especially to Insidious 3, and now it's getting poor reviews.

I do agree with Hoffman however.  TV for me as well had really upped its game with such great shows like American Horror Story, Game Of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, it's just been incredible.  Amazing acting and great storylines.

Hollywood movies do just need to push the boat out a bit.  Take more risks.  It's go the other way.  Go back to basics.  Showcase its acting abilities a bit more.  We don't have to have blockbuster movies every summer, and all through summer.

Matt Damon's Ponytail Is Causing A Stir.

I like to write!!!

I can see why it could be causing a stir on the internet.  It is by no means the most attractive look I've ever seen for Matt Damon.  He really does look like a 'punk' and that's fine if you suit that kind of look, but I don't think it looks good on him.

It has gained mixed reviews, some saying they like it, but most saying they would prefer to see the old Matt Damon back.  If he is doing it for a movie then that's fine, but otherwise I think he should ditch it pretty quick.

I want the old Matt Damon back too.
