Gone too soon - all these beautiful voices, leaving us..


Early Monday morning, I was on my way to Bray to see my GP, driving on the M50, listening to Radio Nova, when they announced that David Bowie had died..

I just could NOT believe it.. =(

I still can't believe it!

Although I'd never have described myself as a "David Bowie fan" as such, I still always admired him on so many levels.. He was intelligent, elegant, eloquent.. His voice was velvet.. Whatever he did, seemed so effortlessly cool..

Seems wrong, that he had to leave us so soon..


Today, I had the living room TV on SkyNews as I was peeling spuds in the kitchen, about to make chips.. I couldn't really hear much, just the odd word, every now and then..

After a while, I'd heard Harry Potter films mentioned a few times, and I was starting to put random words together, getting the idea that some actor might have died, and whoever it was, might have appeared on Harry Potter films..

I even thought to myself, well, as long as it's not Alan Rickman..

Then, I thought, OMG, it's never Alan Rickman?!?

I had to stop my spud show, and go have a look..

It was Alan Rickman..

I can NOT believe, Alan Rickman has died..

=(

His Snape was the only reason why I ever watched any Harry Potter films.. (OMG, hot..)

His voice was velvet..

David Bowie and Alan Rickman were both 69, and died from cancer..

Just.. Sad..

Nude celebs

(I couldn't resist - had to use that title, LOL..)



Here's something I've been wondering for years: Why is it, that nearly all female celebs seem to have this urge to pose naked? It doesn't seem to matter what age, shape or size they are, or what they're famous for - eventually, they're going to do a naked photoshoot.

I've nothing against nudity, but I just don't see what's the motivation, in most cases. Like, OK, if you're someone who's famous for doing stuff naked (like, say, a Turdassian porn video, or such..), then I guess it makes sense to do more naked stuff for your target audience, but let's say you are (or have been) a non-porn actress, a novelist, a musician, or whatever.. Why would you feel the need to do a naked photoshoot?

Surely, it can't just be the need for keeping your name out there, or needing some extra money? Because that would seem like prostituting yourself, in a way..

Is it some kind of a need to flaunt your figure? But why? Like, you can do that with clothes on, too, so why get naked in public?

Human body is beautiful, and nude photos can be beautiful as well, but I think there's often an element of desperation, if it's someone famous taking their clothes off, rather than someone more or less anonymous, who's just modelling for something genuinely artistic.

Enjoying my new Sony Xperia M4 Aqua

 

I recently bought a new phone - Sony Xperia M4 Aqua (=finally had some spare money, and my old phone was on its way out..)

I'm loving it!!! =D

The camera is great, and once my 128GB memory card arrives, I'll be sorted.. I'm not even carrying my camera in the (huge) handbag anymore!

I'm also really happy with the battery life of the new phone. I can use it all day, take pictures, edit pictures, share pictures online, browse Facebook, Instagram, etc.. Play my Simpsons game, text, talk, skype.. And I haven't even managed to get the battery under 50% yet.

I have to say, the phone is much better than what I expected to get for €249.99 (Vodafone.ie shop). It's also waterproof, and dust resistant! (Yes - waterproof!)

I can totally recommend this phone ♥

Snack time with Cara & Mama

Browsing Facebook...

Cara: Mama, go and make us a sambo..

Mama: Of course, baby.. Anything you want..

Cara: Mmm, cheese, I approve..

Mama: Can I have some, too?

Cara: OK, you've had enough now, gimme..

Mama: That was nice, wasn't it?

Cara: Yes, lovely.. Wow, Mama, your double chin is kinda big..

Mama: Shurrup.. LOL

Mama: Back to Facebook?

Cara: Yeah! Yeah! Show me that kitty video again! =D

Something brilliant: Billy Idol - Save Me Now


Billy Idol - Save Me Now

I've been hyping about this, since I heard it for the first time, just the other day.. We actually had to google, to believe that it's a new song.. It has such 80's classic written all over it, and Billy Idol's voice still sounds so young! Awesome tune =)
