Bluetooth Story (October 2009)

This is a mini story I made up one day using Bluetooth names that had come up on my phone while I was on the tram. Enjoy and let me know what you think and if I should make more.

There once was a married couple named Ferret and Brew. Ferret had seen Brew flirting with her fully sick aunt at a family picnic. They got into a fight. He called her a She-Hulk and she called him a Stunt Cock. The fighting started getting worse so they went to see Dr Honey, the marriage counsellor for help. He suggested that they should take tango lessons together to spice up their marriage. It worked or so they thought. One day Brew got a call from his friend Scarecrow  telling him that '"Goose is wid ya missus at GJ’s". Brew drove down to GJ’s to check it out for himself and saw them together, doing the tango. They both stared at each other in shock. Brew walked over to them in anger but slipped on a deakie and fell down hard breaking every bone in his skelator. Ferret ran to his side. He tried to tell her something but all she could make out was "Goonie Goo Goo".

Music: An Horse - Dressed Sharply

Cannot get this song out of my head. Really good band too!!

I have nothing new to tell you
Since the last time that I wrote
But I know with certainty
Your hands will get this note

I don't need any mirrors in the hallway
To remind me how I'm feeling today
I don't want any lights in my house
Turn them off, pull them down, throw them out

I read, I read
I read, I read
A yellow shirt and a blue jacket

I learnt for the first time today
A red flags means that I'll be ok
You get up when I go to sleep but that's just me and geography

I read, I read
I read, I read
A yellow shirt and a blue jacket

Dressed so sharply
You know I will read
Every word that you send me

Lady Gaga on Adele's Weight.

Disclaimer: I do not own Lady Gaga. I am a fan of her and I am aware that the image below is a fake and has been photoshopped. I am just using it to jumpstart my rant.

A friend of mine posted this picture up on her Facebook. 

 Adele is beautiful no matter what size she is and she is an fantastic singer (her voice is stuck in my head) and the video for Rolling in the Deep is really good. Showing that not all recording artists need to dance and wear crazy costumes in all their videos in order to become successful in their careers. Sure sex sells but that doesn't mean that all great singers and bands have to apply themselves to it. Plus there are alot of female artists like Adele who are big and have amazing voices. Just ask these singers.

Aretha Franklin

Beth Ditto (The Gossip)

Jennifer Hudson

Ann Wilson (Heart)

So there you go.

And now I will end this post with a song worshipping big girls like Adele and the singers listed above.

Book to TV Adaptation: Are you there Vodka? It's Me Chelsea.

About two years ago I wanted to get back into reading but couldn't find an interesting book to read, so one day my mum (who is a member of a book club) gave me a list of recommendations. One of those books was Are you there Vodka? It's me Chelsea by well-known comedian and late night talkshow host Chelsea Handler. It is a really fantastic and hilarious collection of autobiographical essays of Chelsea's life that I just couldn't put down, personal favourites being  'Prison Break', 'Barking up the Wrong Tree' and 'Jumped'.

Now there is a TV Series coming soon based on Are You there Vodka with the main protagonist Chelsea being played by Laura Prepon (you might know her as Donna from That 70's Show). Chelsea Handler also appears in the show as Chelsea's pregnant older sister. Looks pretty funny but I think I'd enjoy it a lot more without the laughing track.

So there you go. If you like Chelsea Handler and her judgemental humour then definitely read Are You there Vodka. But if you like the look of this sitcom then I suggest you read the book first coz chances are the book's always better than the TV/Film adaptation, unless the show manages to pull it off.

I'm Back

Hey everybody, LiviAvenue is back.
After finishing off my last assignment for the semester and with my graduation come and gone I am now a free woman.

Just in case you didn't know, I graduated from Victoria University last week with a Bachelor of Creative Arts Industries. Such an amazing event, like I was in a graduation scene in those American teen films. I wanted to throw my hat up in the air like they do in those films (they feel weird btw). I didn't unfortunately.

I really feel like I've accomplished something. Now I have my graduation at RMIT coming up in December so I'll be looking forward to that.

In the meantime, I'll be back to blogging more posts on LiviAvenue.
