I'm Taking A Break From Sugar & Spice!


I had wanted to do this post to celebrate one of my favorite holidays, Halloween. I don't have a lot to celebrate right now. My computer died last night. I'm using my cousin's computer to write this message. I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm going to see if my laptop can be fixed inexpensively. If not, I'm going to have to get a new one before I start back in college the first of the year. I really didn't need this new expense. I'm not going to be able to be online much right now since I don't have my own computer. I'm going to have to take a break from the blogging world. This will be my last post for right now. I'm not going to be able to check out your blogs either for awhile. I'm so sorry about everything. I'll miss you guys so much. I'm hoping to be back as soon as I can. Take care. I wish you all the best.

These images are from the Jess Franco film Eugenie de Sade. This early 70's film starred the late actress Soledad Miranda. Soledad was born in Spain to Portuguese parents. She starred in quite a few films for Franco before her untimely death at the young age of 27. This particular film is about a young woman who begins a love affair with her stepfather, an erotic writer, played by Paul Muller. This affair leads them to commit murder. It's actually one of my favorite films by Jess Franco. Enjoy these photos of the stunning Soledad Miranda. She is still sorely missed by so many of us.














Here's a song from the film.

Evan Rachel Wood, 23, has been acting since 1998. Her film credits include everything from Thirteen to The Wrestler. She has a recurring role on the HBO vampire series True Blood. Evan is engaged to Marilyn Manson. These GQ photos (by Ellen Von Unwerth) are from 2007. I have some other photos of Evan that I plan to post soon as well. I hope you enjoy these beautiful shots of the young sex kitten.

Olga Kurylenko Is An International Bombshell


Ukranian beauty Olga Kurylenko is probably best known for her role as Bond girl Camille in 2008's Quantum of Solace. She's also appeared in such films as the 2007 film adaptation of the video game Hitman. Her latest film is called Centurion. Olga has done a lot of modeling throughout the years. I totally understand why. She's so beautiful and stunning. These photos are from the August/September issue of
Complex. I hope you like them.

Women Who Rock Out

I wanted to share some videos with you of some of my favorite female singers. I hope you enjoy these. Which ones do you really like? Who would you have added that I didn't? Let me know what you think.

Joan Jett - I Love Rock 'n Roll

Pat Benatar - Heartbreaker

Heart - Barracuda

Blondie - One Way Or Another

Lita Ford - Kiss Me Deadly

The Pretenders - Brass In Pocket

Tina Turner - Nutbush City Limits

Did anybody see the movie The Runaways? I saw it not that long ago on DVD. I thought this was a perfect time to post some videos from that movie.

The first one is a short clip of Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett singing I Love Playing With Fire.

The second video is Cherry Bomb, featuring Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie and Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett. The embedding was disabled for it, so I put a link in the title of the song. Check it out.

P.S. I know it's been awhile since I've blogged. I've been tied up with getting things sorted out for going back to college. I did want to get a new post up here. Thursday & Friday I will go around to your blogs to leave some comments for those you've left on my last couple of posts. I wanted to let you guys know the good news. I took the math placement tests for college this morning. I scored high enough that I can go into Math 80, which is basically Introduction to Algebra. That's the last course right before College Algebra. It's actually the class I was hoping to get into. I'm no math whiz at all. I didn't do great in math years ago. I actually surprised myself that I did as well today as I did. I was nervous that I would end up in more of a remedial math class. I wanted to get into this particular course because it would be a great way to learn more about the subject material before getting into the harder course. That way maybe it might not be as much of a struggle now. Early registration for the next semester is on November 3rd. Classes will start in January. I had wanted to let you guys know. I'm so happy and thrilled. I know I've got a long road ahead of me, but today was a big weight off my chest. Thanks for all your support. I appreciate it.

I'm So Totally Mad For Lara Stone


I don't know about you, but I totally adore Lara Stone. I think she's so beautiful. I really love this incredibly gorgeous and stylish editorial of her in the September issue of
Vogue. These photos by Mert & Mercus have some a cool retro vibe to them. I find them to be quite stunning. What do you think?










P.S. I wanted to keep you guys updated with what's going on in my life. I went yesterday to my local community college. I am going back to school this upcoming spring semester. I will be a returning student since I went to this particular school years ago. Quite a few of the courses I once took still count and will transfer so I won't have to retake them. I do have to take the math placement test. I'm not looking forward to that. I was never good in math at all. I hate to think of how much I've forgotten now. I'm taking it in a couple of weeks. The first of November is early registration for the next semester. I did quality for financial aid so my tuition and books will be covered. I'm both scared and excited. I never thought I would be going back to college again. I do know that I've always regretted that I never finished before. I've never been able to get that great of jobs due to only having a high school diploma. I know that I need to further my education, especially with the current economic climate in this country. It's the best thing I do. I do feel weird going back at age 40. I know that many of the students are young enough to be my children. I've got the will and drive to make it work. It has to work. There aren't a lot of options otherwise. I do ask that you would continue to keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I appreciate it. Thanks.
