Is There A Soul In There...?!

Because I'm into the weird and strange; and anybody who's into vampires, werewolves, fairies, mermaids, and all those inhuman monsters, can find something about them attractive, tantalizing, or just simply AWESOME!

Am I the only one who got turned on by an ape in Planets of the Apes (2001)?
Huh? Yes? It's just me?  ... Oh.


Yeah, I thought that chimpanzee was just TOO SEXY! Or maybe because he was played by Tim Roth, and I found that little guy just SEXY!! Especially in that TV series Lie To Me.

And why am I talking about sexy monkey's?

Love works like that. You don't see anything ugly, wrong, disturbing, bad, or amiss with the object of your affection. And if that sounds strange or untrue to you, try seeing it in the point-of-view of a Beauty and the Beast, a favorite fairy tale of all time. And then there's the Princess and the Frog.

Nothing is too ugly, new, big or small, for the eyes of the beholder.

We can get hopelessly devoted to unordinary things, which makes a person want to sing!.

I think it's what's inside that counts...inside of ourselves that defines the outside.

It's what we view inside ourselves is what we project unto the object of our love and thus we are seeing with an "inner-eye" that makes us blind to what's on the outside.

Sometimes I think we blind that "inner-eye" so that we can't see what's exactly in front of us. Sometimes it is not blinded and we can see what really IS in front of us....and that's a good thing.

"Is there a soul in there?" General Thad questioned, while prying open a Human's mouth.

I would like to name it "soul" or a "holy spirit", when we actually SEE what's inside ourselves.

Either way, who we are in the inside, makes us who were are; and it also creates what, and who, surrounds our lives.

Keep that Lil'l Light burning...!!!!

Oz Broke My Heart!

Oz the Great and Powerful (2012) film was definitely an eye opener for a broken heart.

For those who haven't seen it yet, please don't read this post because it would just give away the movie for you. Thus, I'll put that special word so that you can see.


Soooo.... anyone want to sing Pat Benatar's Heartbreaker song with me?

Your love has set my soul on fire, burnin' out of control
You taught me the ways of desire, now it's takin' its toll
You're the right kind of sinner, to release my inner fantasy
The invincible winner, and you know that you were born to be

You're a heartbreaker
Dream maker, love taker....

Yep, that's what Oz was. A heart breaker. And what did he say about making those women fall in love with him and using them and breaking their hearts? Yep. She'll get over me..just like the others.

Heartless! A Heart of Stone Coldness.

But there's a lesson to be learned from watching this film. One should not give you heart away so quickly. And also that old saying: Beware Of Those Bearing Gifts!

I know that everyone wants to believe, so strongly, about love and how it comes like a Cupid's Arrow, and "love at first sight" does exist, and Charming is there to sweep us off our feet; but there are also those predators that use those hopeful hearts as well.

Oz was not only cute and charming, he gave his "grandmother's music box" to every female he wanted to shag. He even gave them job opportunities and a lovely dance.

These women meant nothing to Oz and he shrugged off any thoughts of actually hurting them as if it was their own faults for falling for such smoke and mirrors.

Yet...even HE had his heart filled with someone, but could not give it to her because he knew he would only cause her misery. Auntie Em chose the right man, though she truly loved that carnival magician.

Then, that undeserving thing happens. That heartbreaker actually PICKS someone. And that lingering question always come about with those who so love that heartbreaker. Why did SHE get him? What did SHE do that I didn't? Why did he pick HER!?

That famous, notorious, question... and no one seems to know that answer except the heartbreaker, who doesn't give much of answer when he's asked.  

What is certain is that a road must be followed and things must take place. For he must have his heart warmed, first by someone loyal (a bellhop monkey), then by someone in need (very delicate china doll), and then face himself and his trespasses (the evil witch). When this road is completed, then, SHE appears. 

For SHE just happens to be The One. And only SHE, who already knew what kind of man he was, who could see him for who he actually is, could he love. For SHE was never broken by him.

SHE was simply fated to be with him.

Simply put.

Sometimes we can't have the man we love because we just aren't made up to be his. 

But we are made up to be another's.

Until Next Time!

Welcome to Tirna Magique!!

Got a novella up and ready for those hungry for a romantic short. It's a magical 150-page novel, thus it's called a novella because of it's short length. Filled with all the things I like about fantasy: dragons, dwarves, mermaids, and fairies, I quite enjoyed writing this heartfelt story.

Here's a summary of what this story entails:
With the Earth becoming uninhabitable, Humans are being evacuated. Thanks to the Gapie race who offered their homes to all willing Humans, life can continue on, but mostly in darkness. Transition to this new world, which only has four hours of sunlight, would take over twenty years. Earth is now in year twelve.

Only Alesa knows the true reason for the Gapie's "helping-hand", and she has plans of her own. But first, she must get her girlfriends to trust her, and that took a few years to do. Now, she would implement her plans and take her friends on an adventure that would change their lives, and their hearts, forever. 

So, there you have it! Just wanted to share that another romantica element has been added to my bookshelf store to engorge.

Check out Tirna Magique at the local online eBook of your choice (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.) for less than a DOLLAR!

Until Next Time!

The Hobbit... My Two Cents of My Preciousss!!

"If precious asks, and it doesn't answer, we eats it, my preciousss."

So, I watched the  2hr 46min‎ film, The Hobbit, the first weekend it was out. I was shocked that the theater wasn't filled to the rim with people--there was only about 15 people. My sister said there was a total of 4 people in her theater.  This surprised me because The Lord Of The Rings were so popular  What happened and why didn't any one want to see this movie?

Well, what I didn't know was that the film would only contain the first 6 Chapters. I hadn't done my research on it, and the title didn't state anything about Part 1 of 3 (and it does have 3 parts, which I learned later), though there was a subtitle of some of the chapters of the book that came up while viewing the movie. More epic films? Not that it was yet another movie divided up over three years was much of a problem for me, because what was covered in this movie, and how it ended, was a great, satisfying ending for me.

What I found out was that I do understand why some might find this movie boring, and I'm glad something happened that made me see this film in a different light. 

I had decided to prove to someone the WHY I had never read The Hobbit stories. I remember it going on and on and on and on and on and hardly ever getting to the action, the beef, of the story, and it kept explaining this and that and the other on what every species of character was being presented in the book. It was bloated.  So, I found the first few pages online (Like over here or here or here) and began reading it out loud. It proved my point on how it kept going on and on and on and on; and for books during that time, people had time to sit and enjoy reading every-single-descriptive-word-of-a-very-very-long-story and taking the time to be entertained in a world with so much detail and humor.

Readying those first few pages again...I'm SO glad I did that!

For the first few screens of The Hobbit (2012) was almost basically word-for-word from the few pages of the book that I read! The singing, the conversations, almost everything I read was verbatim! And because of that, I quite enjoyed the movie because it mentally set me up that I would be seeing a book-on-film, and I didn't have to read, and undergo, every word to get into the story.

My sister had wondered, "Heck! Was this a movie or a musical!" So, the singing portion confused her on what type of film it was supposed to be, and I explained that it was following the book...exactly. There was a lot of prose in the novel and that was also placed in film, which would really confuse those who didn't read those pages, and because I pridefully wanted to "show-off" on the WHY I never read the book, while watching the film after ready the few pages that I had read, it made me quite enjoy it even more... I enjoyed it!!

So, for those of you who are still on the fence of seeing The Hobbit, or those waiting for Netflix like I do sometimes for films, I suggest just reading a few pages first and you'll see what I mean. It will place you in the mindset of a novel and have you understand what the film was aiming at and why it was produced the way that it was.

It's all in the frame of mind.

(Oh! And before I end this post...I just LOVE Gollum, my precioussss!!!!" He was the highlight of the movie!!)

Until Next Time!
