Almost Similar to Kylie Minogue’s Can’t Get You Out of My Head Minus the Letting Go part,
This review is from: Trojans (MP3 Music)
Trojans by Atlas Genius appear to be a song about a person that the singer cannot get out of his head despite implementing various attempts to do so. This is actually a decent indie rock song. However, what would have added an extra element to the song is if the song would have also included the point of view from the person who apparently caused this Trojan (metaphorically speaking). I only say this because there are often two sides to every story between two people and it would have been interesting to hear two perspectives similar in the style of Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know (where both the singer and the female that he is singing about are giving their sides to the story).
Lovers In The Night,
This review is from: Because The Night [MTV Unplugged Version] (MP3 Music)
Because of the Night by 10,000 Maniacs is one of those classic songs that have the perfect blend of violin and singing to really bring out the message of the song. The singer is basically saying that the night is basically time for her and her romantic companion. Luckily, I was first exposed to this song from both the radio and it was either the MTV and/or the VH1 channel around the time that this song was released as a live performance.
The Impact of A Person’s Words and Treatment Towards Others,
This review is from: For You [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
For You by Staind really hit home for me musically speaking because it talks about the difficulties that can arise in relationships with certain people who play important roles in one’s life for better or for the challenging. The singer eloquently expresses how a person’s words can greatly hurt based on how much they meant to you. I can relate to this song all too well due to my reluctant acceptance to come to terms with being the black sheep/oddball of my family (I only finally accepted being the family black sheep a month ago instead of perpetually fighting against it). Fortunately, some family members do accept me, however I now embrace that others may never get me or like me regardless of what I do or say (such as my adoptive father). However, instead of feeling sorry for myself, I take it as a positive lesson why I must continue to live independently and reside in the location I feel is best for my husband and I (regardless of what both family members and strangers to me may say). For You by Staind brilliantly professes the heavy emotion that one can feel around the heavy task of not letting frequent and continual verbal attacks and/or social exclusion penetrate one’s emotional/psychological armor. For You by Staind is also a meaningful rock song.
A Young Child’s Account of Heaven,
This review is from: Heaven is For Real - DVD/UltraViolet (DVD)
I confess that I was reluctant to see the Heaven Is Real dvd for one major reason. I spotted the book based on the movie around it was either August or September 2012 at an airport bookstore in Wisconsin (I was flying back to the D.C. area after visiting with my maternal grandmother and aunts in Wisconsin). Please understand that I do believe Colton Burpo’s account of having seen heaven. It was just that I did not purchase the book after skimming through it due to what I felt were some hateful words coming more from indoctrinated western civilization beliefs than what was said from heavenly spirits (in regards to who goes to heaven). However, I kept seeing the Heaven Is For Real book and the Heaven Is for Real dvd offered at my Walmart job. I then decided to keep an open mind and at least see the dvd, so I rented it from the Redbox machine at my job. The movie was better than I thought and there were not any hateful words exchanged during the movie between the characters. However, the only thing that would have made it stronger was showing more images of what Colton saw in heaven. The film does share Colton discussing that he saw heaven but only one scene in the movie reflects what Colton saw in heaven. The dvd also has these features ended with these interesting facts:
A Sony commercial and a movie trailer for When The Game Stands Tall and Mom’s Night Out and some song with the lyrics we’re young and on our way. There were also movie trailers for Courageous, Spiderman 2, and Soul Surfer.
On October 4, 2004 the Burpos welcome another son.
Todd Burpo remains the pastor of Wesleyan Church
In November 2010, Todd published Colton’s account of heaven. It has brought inspiration to millions around the world. Akiane Kramarik still paints her visions of heaven.
Colton Burpo is a normal teenager. His sister says he’s no angel. The movie is listed to have been produced by T.D. Jakes and Joe Roth.
A Happy Reunion And Connection With A Sister In The Same Happy Spirit of the Frozen movie,
This review is from: Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus (DVD)
Yes, understand that when I purchased Barbie And The Magic of Pegasus dvd at my job for five dollars that it is actually meant for children. I just sometimes feel compelled to watch various cartoons in order to stimulate my creativity/imagination and as a healthy, low-cost, and safe outlet. Additionally, I am in the process of writing scripts/stories just for spiritual fun/psychological therapy and ideas for scripting my future goals (an idea given to me from some of my self- help books). Watching both a range of cartoons and movies give me creative inspiration on how to approach my writing. Anyhow, Barbie And The Magic of Pegasus centers around Barbie’s journey to save her family and village after an evil sorcerer turns both her parents and the rest of the villagers to frozen human statues. Barbie ends up only having a short time to save the village after understandably refusing to be the tyrannical sorcerer’s wife. Along the way the movie shows three female trolls that provide a clue that these woman had been the sorcerer’s previous three wives. Additionally, Barbie ends up unexpectedly falling in love and meeting her sister named Brietta who was turned into a magical Pegasus by the sorcerer (which pretty much explains the title). The Barbie and The Magic of Pegasus dvds also include the following information:
Trailer for various Barbie dvds such as Barbie In A Mermaid Tale and Barbie and The Three Musketeers. Extra Scenes, extras titled under Magical Fun such as Grooming Brietta, Outtakes, and the Hope Has Wings music video by Brie Lawson.
Linkin Park Summer 2014 Release,
This review is from: The Hunting Party (Audio CD)
I decided to obtain Hunting Party by Linkin Park at my job after seeing it advertised a few times and figuring that I could use my employee discount. Fortunately, the cd turned out to be a worthwhile purchase because of the intense and excellent singing as well as the lyrics that were timed with a grittier rock sound (as others have noted, Linkin Park channel some of the energy from their Hybrid Theory days). I purchased the 12 song version (with the addition of the song Guilty All The Same feat. Rakim) and the songs War, Final Masquerade, and Line In The Sand are some of the tracks that captured my attention with the combo of the music and lyrics. However, the songs on the cd touch on various themes that may resonate with some men and women who are open to listening to hard rock.

How Some Of The Top 2% Set Have Fun,
This review is from: Town & Country (1-year) (Magazine)
I started becoming a subscriber to this magazine back in 2011 (one of my beginning subscriptions to this magazine was back in October 2011). I re-subscribed to Town & Country in June 2014 after receiving an e-mail offer to subscribe at a low cost price and due to the fact that it has certain features that relates to a career that I intend to pursue. I received the July 2014 issue (that features Dakota Fanning) on time and found it a surprisingly fascinating read on the coverage of some of the offspring of celebrities who are now deejays.
Steamy and Classic Song,
This review is from: I Want Your Sex (Remastered (Pts. 1 & 2)) (MP3 Music)
I Want Your (Remastered Parts 1&2) by George Michael is an erotic pop type of song that basically has the singer revealing to his love interest that he wants them and wishes to physically express the passion he has. It is a catchy song that where George Michael is expressing sensuality in a musical form.
Plays Well (both the cd player and radio)but Is Fragile,
This review is from: RCA RP3013 Personal CD Player with FM Radio (Electronics)
This RCA RP3013 cd player was well worth the money because I was able to easily play cds in it while walking and minimal skipping. I also enjoyed that this cd player came with a radio (I would often listen to various radio stations during some of my walks to and from my overnight shift at Walmart). The only caveat: the cd player easily breaks (fragility): I was trying to go through my work locker to shut it off when I realized that I might have either left the radio part on or the switch might have been activated on by the way I put the cd player on the locker). Anyhow, I attempted to take the cd player out, but I accidently lost my grip while pulling it out of the locker which caused it to land on the floor and instantly break I plan on getting another cd player, but I am unsure of whether to repurchase this one due to it being fragile (I’ve dropped one of my apple ipod player a few times since receiving back in 2011 from my husband and it still plays in 2014 while I had just purchased the cd player back in January 2014). Additionally, I’m honestly tempted to purchase a cd player with fm radio (at my job) due to seeing it offered at a lower price.
Song That Randomly Popped In My Head,
This review is from: Toxicity (Album Version) (MP3 Music)
For some strange reason, I was compelled to eventually purchase Toxicity by System Of A Down after randomly hearing it in my head last Thursday (I then unexpectedly heard it on the radio the next day). Additionally, I saved the music video to this song in my youtube history last week after also viewing and hearing their B.Y.O. B song. I was wondering why this song randomly popped in my head and confided to my husband about it. It turns out that he was listening to Toxicity on his itunes account a couple of days before when I was away working my overnight shift. We both listen to various types of music, with rock being one of them. The only difference is that I usually listen to rock music blended with other music genres (such as with electronica, indie rock, a type of rock rap etc) while my husband sometimes prefers harder versions of rock (such as Ramstein). I know that this may sound strange and even crazy to others, but this made sense to me (my husband listening to Toxicity while I was at work and me picking up this song in my head two days later) because I feel that both my husband and I have a strong and powerful connection due to being kindred spirits and getting to know each other the longer we have been married (I’m happy and thankful to report that we have been married for 10. 5 years now). I do not fully understand the lyrics, but I admit to enjoying this song due to the compelling singing and the way that the music instruments complement the timing of the song. As for my husband, he enjoys Toxicity by System Of A Down because he sees it as a hard rock motivational type of track.
Political Rock Song?,
This review is from: B.Y.O.B. (Explicit) (MP3 Music)
I originally heard B.Y.O.B back 2005/2006 when I was living on the Mayport Naval Base (through the military). One of the local alternative radio stations frequently played this song on their radio station. I also heard B.Y.O.B by System Of A Down a lot during the summer of 2005 because it was featured on my Yahoo music radio subscription (Yahoo music radio was similar to the current Pandora music subscription features in that multiple music genres/radio stations were offered, but it was later discontinued). Anyhow, B.Y.O.B by System Of A Down is a brilliant hard rock song the uses lyrics of everyone going to a party with the seriousness of a political music discussion. I admit that I was strangely compelled to check out the B.Y.O.B music video (and eventually purchase the song)after it was recommended to me after I watched Love Is All Around by DJ Bobo and Clint Eastwood by The Gorillaz.
This review is from: Good Times, Bad Times ...Ten Years of Godsmack (Audio CD)
I confess that I was curious to eventually check out Good Times, Bad Times: Ten Years of Godsmack by Godsmack after my husband came up to me and was singing part of the lyrics to Voodoo by Godsmack. Previously, I had also heard of the group from hearing their song Stand Alone back in 2002 (it was featured at the end of the Scorpion King movie. Additionally, I started to hear more songs by Godsmack after hearing their music played at one of the Florida alternative rock radio stations near the Mayport Naval Base (I resided there from Feb. 2005 until Feb. 2008) I asked my husband if he was ok after radonmly humming Voodoo, and he reassured me that he was, it was just for some reason he felt like humming Voodoo by Godsmack after the song was in his head. Naturally, buying this cd felt like a fun thing to do, with my husband being able to listen to this cd (since hard rock is one of the music genres that he enjoys). Whatever, Voodoo, Stand Alone (featured on the Scorpion King starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson), and Serenity are some of the multiple good songs featured on Good Times, Bad Times: Ten Years of Godsmack.
Autumn 2012 Music Collection From the UK Now Series,
This review is from: Now 83: That's What I Call Music (Audio CD)
I bought this collection of Now 83 back in December 30, 2012 via Amazon Uk. Now 83 is a two cd set with twenty two songs on the first cd and twenty one songs on the second cd. A full listing of the various musicians and songs are currently available on Amazon UK. There are so many good songs to choose from on Now 83. However, I would have to say that I will Wait by Mumford & Sons, Hall of Fame by The Script feat. Will,i,am, and Don’t You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia are some of my favorite songs found on Now 83.

Humorous Sketches From Matt Lucas and David Williams,
This review is from: Little Britain: The Complete First Series (DVD)
My husband enjoys watching comedy shows such The Black Adder and A Bit Of Fry And Laurie. He also got me interested in The Black Adder and A Bit Of Fry and Laurie as well. Naturally, I decided to watch the first season of Little Britain with my husband after he gently encouraged me to watch this show with him. Anthony Head (from the Merlin TV series) makes appearances in season one of Little Britain as a politician. There are eight episodes to this show with various funny sketches involving such characters as an eccentric hotel owner, an author who enjoys sleeping while generating ideas for her book, an aggressive stage mother, and more. Both my husband felt that the hypnotist character was pretty comedic. Meanwhile my husband’s second favorite character was David William’s rendition of a Scottish hotel owner, while mine was David William’s rendition of a twenty something male who has a major crush on his friend’s grandmother. Little Britain is great to watch for those who enjoy watching comedy series.
Greatest Tunes From Jessica Simpson,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Playlist: The Very Best of Jessica Simpson (Audio CD)
This edition of The Very Best of Jessica Simpson contains 14 songs showcasing Jessica Simpson’s musical career. I personally enjoyed Irresistible and With You from this collection. However, there are songs with hints of pop, country, and dance elements for others that would appeal to others (such as her musical covers of Take My Breath Away, Angels, You Spin Me Round (Like A Record), and These Boots Are Made For Walking from Berlin, Robbie Williams, Dead Or Alive, and Nancy Sinatra. Come On Over is one of the songs that touches upon her foray into country while I Think I’m In Love With You take music inspiration from John Mellencamp and showcases her pop side. Due to this, The Very Best of Jessica Simpson would be best for those who listen to a wide range of music.
Romantic Country Songs Part 2,
This review is from: NOW that's what I call country ballads 2 (Audio CD)
I truthfully had no idea that another Now Country ballad collection was released until I saw Now That’s What I Call Country Ballads 2 at my Walmart job. This collection has many of country music’s biggest names on the cd such as Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, and fourteen other well-known groups/musicians on Now Country Ballads 2.
Fergie’s 2006 Music Solo,
This review is from: The Dutchess (Audio CD)
I admit that I preferred to purchase The Duchess by Fergie once I saw it on sale at my Walmart job for just 5 dollars. It was also an easy choice for me to purchase this cd due to the fact that I first heard some of her songs on the radio back around 2006-2007 when I was living in Florida (through the military). Additionally, a couple of the females that I befriend also listened to some of Fergie’s music. Glamorous is one of my favorite songs from this cd, with Fergalicious and Clumsy being in second place of the songs that I enjoy from this cd. Fergie The Dutchess contains music blends of R&B with hints of pop music that also contain the well- known songs of Big Girls Don’t Cry and London Bridge.
I Understand That This Movie Is Popular At The Box Office, However,
This review is from: The Nut Job (DVD)
My husband and I chose to go to the movies for our ten year wedding anniversary and decided on this movie. There were pros and cons to “The Nut Job” film that made me feel compelled to only rate it two stars. First the good points to this film:
The pros: The Nut Job contains a positive message of the happy benefits of sharing and the happiness that can occur when achieving goals as a group.
The cons: the film shows the character of Surly being banished from his group for reasons that I personally felt were not necessarily a big deal to isolate someone from a village of other animals. Additionally, the film pretty much centers around one main goal. The film could have been made stronger with the plot of the animal community working together to accomplish three to four goals instead of just one.
As a consolation to me, my husband at least liked this film more than I did. It is just that I honestly feel that the Nut Job is a film better suited to watching once it is out on dvd rather than seeing it in the movie theaters. It was not easy for me to rate this movie only two stars because I normally enjoy animated films and have watched and enjoyed many such as the following films: Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2, Despicable Me 2, Hoodwinked, Gnomeo & Juliet, Meet The Robinsons, Tangled,Toy Story 3, Puss In Boots, Hotel Transylvania, and Rango.
I admit that I first decided to buy these Little Debbie Cream Cheese Streusel Cakes after browsing them through the snack aisle at my Walmart job (when I was looking to indulge in something sweet during my meal break). They are sweet but not too sugary and have a moist cream cheese filling at the center. There are eight single cakes in a box and they often sell pretty quick (which is why I reluctantly confess to sometimes getting at least two boxes at at a time when purchasing these cakes).
