This doesn't sound like my kind of movie, Yawares. I do watch movies but I look for films with some useful insights into life or, if not that, then at least some genuine happiness.

Too Young To Handle Fame/Fortune !!

Postby yawares » Tue Sep 18, 2012 1:36 pm

Dear Members,

I love these cute/fun movies very much: Love Wrecked :thumbsup: /What A Girl Wants :thumbsup: /Sydney White/She's The Man :thumbsup: , starring: my favorite young actress "Amanda Bynes".

Today I read the news: Amanda Bynes has finally been taken off the road – and everybody seems to have an opinion about the troubled star, including Lindsay Lohan.

:heart: Toy Soldiers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oh334Tn7 ... re=related

:heart: Drugs Or Jesus : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFPlFz4A ... re=related

Party All Night : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHDKHKix ... ure=fvwrel

After being ordered by a judge not to drive following a DUI charge and two counts of hit-and-run, Bynes thumbed her nose at authority, continuing to get behind the wheel and driving her car all over Los Angeles. But on Sunday morning, the 26-year-old’s joy riding came to an end when she was pulled over and issued a ticket for driving with a suspended license (a misdemeanor), and watched as her black BMW was impounded on the spot.

It was unclear where Bynes was headed when she was stopped at 8:20 a.m. on Sunday, but she was wearing skin-tight pants and stiletto shoes, and was apparently alone at the time.


Bynes – who has been exhibiting peculiar behavior as of late, reportedly talking to herself while alone in public places – must have known this was coming. Less than a week ago she was photographed driving her BMW while smoking something from a pipe. The series of photos, obtained by TMZ, also showed Bynes exiting a parking lot through the entrance, mere feet from two signs that read “Wrong Way” and “Do Not Enter.” Two days later, and after a judge ordered her to stop driving, she was again behind the wheel and hit a parked car. Police were not involved that time but paparazzi snapped photos of the incident.

-------
Troubles seemed to follow these young stars like Amanda Bynes/Britney Spears/Lindsay Lohan/River Pheonix (dead at 23)/Corey Haim(dead at 38)...and many more young entertainers etc.

Well they have been to much attached on what is beautiful... so take care.
Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ...

Yes, always this bad people... we would have no problems if all would be just beautiful and nobody would touch that. But would be realy happy if nobody would touch us, isolated like a golden rose?
So we say Touch me! Touch me! and mara is never a party pooper. How called him?

INXS Death/Eye In The Sky

Postby yawares » Sun Oct 14, 2012 4:14 pm

Dear Members,

I and my daughter used to watch INXS on MTV years ago...but I still play these hit songs every now and then. :jumping:

http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/i ... inxs+death

Michael Kelland John Hutchence (22 January 1960 – 22 November 1997) was an Australian musician and actor. He was a founding member and the lead singer and lyricist of rock band INXS from 1977 to his death in 1997. Hutchence was a member of short-lived pop rock group Max Q and recorded solo material which was released posthumously. He acted in feature films, including Dogs in Space (1986) and Frankenstein Unbound (1990). According to rock music historian, Ian McFarlane, "Hutchence was the archetypal rock showman. He exuded an overtly sexual, macho cool with his flowing locks, and lithe and exuberant stage movements".[1] Hutchence won the 'Best International Artist' at the 1991 BRIT Awards with INXS winning the related group award.

His private life was often reported in the Australian and international press, with a string of love affairs with prominent actresses, models and singers. Hutchence's relationship with UK television presenter Paula Yates began while she was still married to music artist and Live Aid organiser, Bob Geldof. Hutchence and Yates had a daughter in 1996 just after she had divorced Geldof. Hutchence's death in 1997 was determined by the New South Wales Coroner to be the result of suicide – the finding was disputed by Yates, Hutchence's family and his fans. In 2000, Yates died of asphyxiation and their daughter was placed in Geldof's custody with her half-sisters.

Greetings,

I really liked INXS' "Welcome To Wherever You Are" album, which incidentally had Beautiful Girl on it - one of the songs listed in Yawares' post above.

Jason Kroft: Heart Attack Victim Searches for Savior

Postby yawares » Tue Oct 16, 2012 12:32 pm

Dear Members,
I read this wonderful news ..oh how we need heroes/superheroes..I know it's not easy to be heroes: :anjali:

Jason Kroft: Heart Attack Victim Searches for Savior :jumping:
[By Sarah B. Weir, Yahoo! blogger]

Jason Kroft, courtesy Kroft family...Have you seen a 40-year-old red-haired hero in dark blue blazer and dress pants on the streets of New York City? If so, two children want to thank him for saving their dad's life. :thumbsup:

On October 5, Toronto-native Jason Kroft, his wife, Marci, and their two kids, Harper, nine, and Sloan, seven, were strolling though Midtown Manhattan to get a tour of 30 Rockefeller Plaza from brother-in-law, Andrew Zeller. Kroft, 40, who had no history of heart disease, suffered cardiac arrest and collapsed to the sidewalk. His wife screamed for help as he stopped breathing. Suddenly, a stranger appeared and placed his briefcase under Kroft's head, tore open his shirt, and began performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

While Kroft sustained a couple of broken ribs during CPR, Zeller tells Shine, "If he hadn't done CPR compression between cardiac arrest and the time the ambulance arrived, Jason would have severe brain damage." In the commotion after the paramedics arrived, the man disappeared into the crowd before the family could discover his identity. Kroft is recovering at St. Luke's Hospital on the Upper West Side and will eventually be moved back to Toronto for rehabilitation. Over the weekend, Zeller put up about 20 signs around Midtown and Times Square hoping the Good Samaritan would step forward. "We want to thank him," he says. "He's a hero." :heart:

Swedish Super Stars: MISSING YOU !!

Postby yawares » Thu Nov 01, 2012 6:05 pm

Dear Members,

:heart: Swedish Super Stars: Joey Tempest/Roxette :heart:
[From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia]


Final Countdown: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jK-NcRmVcw

Superstitious : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gU5Vg2JokU

She's Got The Look : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HanFKE0urSE

Dangerous : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lTPU1o1csI

Joey Tempest (officially Rolf Magnus Joakim Larsson; August 19, 1963) is the vocalist and main songwriter in the Swedish rock band Europe. He has written hits like "The Final Countdown", "Rock the Night" and "Superstitious".

Before becoming the artist Joey Tempest, Joakim Larsson learned how to play the piano and the guitar. He played football, ice hockey and competed in go-cart; he once came in fourth place in the Junior Cart Race, a Swedish championship. Like many of the other Europe members, he grew up in Stockholm suburb Upplands Väsby. His biggest idols were Thin Lizzy and Led Zeppelin. During his teens, he played in a number of bands such as Jet, Blazer, Made in Hong Kong and Roxanne. At that time he alternated between playing rhythm guitar and bass, in addition to lead vocals.
-----
Roxette is a Swedish pop rock duo, consisting of Marie Fredriksson (vocals) and Per Gessle (vocals and guitar). Formed in 1986, the duo became an international act in the late 1980s, when they released their breakthrough album Look Sharp!. Their third album Joyride, which was released in 1991, became just as successful as its predecessor. Roxette went onto achieve nineteen UK Top 40 hits[1] and several US Hot 100 hits, including four US number-ones with "The Look", "Listen to Your Heart", "It Must Have Been Love", and "Joyride".[2] Other hits include "Dangerous", "Fading Like a Flower", "Dressed for Success" and "The Centre of the Heart".

Dear Members,

Since I love SISTINE CHAPEL alot..I would like to tell you this story:
Image

Michelangelo
Image

Pieta by Michelangelo
Image

Sistine Chapel ceiling
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Sistine Chapel ceiling, painted by Michelangelo between 1508 and 1512, is a cornerstone work of High Renaissance art. The ceiling is that of the large Papal Chapel built within the Vatican between 1477 and 1480 by Pope Sixtus IV after whom it is named, and was painted at the commission of Pope Julius II. The chapel is the location for Papal Conclaves and many important services.

The ceiling's various painted elements form part of a larger scheme of decoration within the Chapel, which includes the large fresco The Last Judgment on the sanctuary wall, also by Michelangelo, wall paintings by several leading painters of the late 15th century including Sandro Botticelli, Domenico Ghirlandaio and Pietro Perugino, and a set of large tapestries by Raphael, the whole illustrating much of the doctrine of the Catholic Church.

Central to the ceiling decoration are nine scenes from the Book of Genesis of which the Creation of Adam is the best known, having an iconic standing equalled only by Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, the hands of God and Adam being reproduced in countless imitations. The complex design includes several sets of individual figures, both clothed and nude, which allowed Michelangelo to fully demonstrate his skill in creating a huge variety of poses for the human figure, and have provided an enormously influential pattern book of models for other artists ever since.

Dear Members,

The new Miss Universe 2012 is Olivia Culpo from USA. Over the next year, she will travel the world championing for her cause alliances, namely HIV/AIDS prevention.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — An American university student is the new Miss Universe, defeating dozens of contestants from six continents to bring the crown back to the U.S. after a drought of more than a decade.

Twenty-year-old Olivia Culpo won the title Wednesday night at the Planet Hollywood casino on the Las Vegas Strip, replacing outgoing champion Leila Lopes of Angola.
