Steven Spielberg


Steven Moffat (screenplay)Edgar Wright(screenplay)and 2 more credits »

In my opinion, when you have two major directors come together as one, like Steve Spielberg and Peter Jackson. This means it's got to be EPIC.

Ready, Set, METROPC'S Scottish Rite White Rock Run!!!

On December 4th the marathon, half-marathon capped out-13,000, 5-person relay-6,000, and corporate relay race 6,000 has sold out today.
Proceeds of the race directly benefited Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Anyone can fundraise for the hospital through personalized fundraising pages available at the marathon’s website. Not to mention the sponsors.
There were 40 bands ranging from rock, funk, country, soul, hip-hop and pop. Spread out through the running course of 26.2 miles and sea of people. 
Despite, the pour cold rain the race marathon still continued. The runners felt a little traction. It wasn't great when your in the rain.
I will point out this year was a qualifying meet for the  Olympics. Some people were veteran at this Marathon. There was a $5,000 reward for the finish. This marathon raised $105,546.
There were key runners male and female. Especially, from Plano High Schools and graduates who were representing Texas in a great way. 
Runners course beginning at 8 a.m. started from Fair Park, Swiss Ave., Ross, Lakewood, McKinney Ave., Turtle Creek, Highland Park, Greenville Ave., and White Rock. Just to name a few.
The first start time came in one hour. According to other sources, Scott MacPherson cruised to a half-marathon victory with an unofficial time of 1:06:55. Sonya Correa won the women's half-marathon race with an unofficial 1:21:07.
This was a tune-up for MacPherson. He is running in the U.S. Olympic marathon trials next month and wanted one last hard effort before he started to taper off his training. A Plano native, he had never run the White Rock marathon or the half-marathon before.
He was pleased with his result, though he admitted the race wasn't easy because of the conditions. MacPherson said it was the coldest he had ever felt in a race.

 Stephen A. Masker"The rain, that makes it feel so much colder," he said. "My quads, I got tight. The more I ran, the tighter I got."

As Usual In The Middle Of..Children's Hospital Neiman Marcus Parade 2011

So happy to be in the middle of everything. Yes! Even though it sprinkled with rain off and on it still didn't stop the 350,000 people who were at the parade. Will it be this way for the MetroPC's Scottish Rite White Rock Run that takes place tomorrow maybe different as far as the rain goes. You have the Macy's Parade but then for Texas you have the annual Children's Hospital Neiman Marcus Parade. Many attractions took place on December 3rd. It was all about the kids at Children's Hospital. I actually sat next to someone from there. The City Of Dallas allowed the parade to take up many streets to enjoy this special occasion. The Dart Rail was a great advantage to use for many families to come out but also the participants used the rail train to make it possible for us to enjoy the parade. As far as, other cities like Richardson Christmas Parade, Fort Worth Christmas Parade, Richland Hills Christmas Parade, and  other surrounding the Dallas/fort Worth Metroplex did not have a great turn out because of the rain considering thousands normally shows up. I speak from experience. Being that I participated in the Richardson Christmas Parade 2010
One of the highlights was Jordan Sparks, in which I thought she was going to sing in front of the Neiman Marcus building but didn't. When I did see her it seemed like she had a malfunction going on with her hair. This was strange considering this was an appearance. Lake Highlands Wranglers didn't disappoint as they performed at the parade. I look up and saw Richardson High School Eaglettes performing, as well. Hmm... I actually saw them on the train. Other highlights was World Series Champions our very own Texas Rangers, Rowdy Cowboy from the Cowboys, Elmo and his Goldfish, Santa and his Elves, Star Wars, Green Lantern, Girl Scouts Of North Texas etc...

This Is An Official Mall Look

These are the questions that run wild through my mind:

  1.  Why is it when people go to the mall they assume they won't see someone, something, or an event that's important (people post up at the malls like the news, tourist, fashion shows, big budget blockbuster movies, celebrities, grand openings etc...)? 
  2. Why do people even go to the mall anyway if their not going to dress to impress (especially if their out with their friends hanging out, going to the movies, or dinner)?
  3. Why don't people want to look their best (religious people who supposably say their christians knows this on a broader scale that this is expected by a Higher Calling, in which, I adhere to myself subtract the religious part)?
  4. Just because you go by yourself does that mean you shouldn't look descent?
  5. Those who are into guys. Guys like fashion, too. If they look good don't think they don't want you to look the same. Do you not think they don't notice? Step it up!! Just saying!
Well Emily didn't think this, at all. I spotted her at the mall inside of Nordstrom's in the BP department. Theses are some things that stuck out to me: 

  • Emily is rocking the very popular feather accessory. 
  • The flower crocet sweater head wrap. Her hair was in the runway messy haired ponytail. 
  • She played with the color scheme. 
  • She did the military vest. 
  • Some stretched leggings. 
  • Not a lot of makeup (that really key to me because the whole point is looking natural)
I can appreciate Tyra Banks from America's Next Top Model giving tips to the girls on how to look your best even when your getting ready to put makeup on. Even if your in sweats. Rock it. My mom is a big fan of sweats, too. In fact, what she'll mainly wear but she looks incredible. Even if you have more curves. You have to learn how to work it and know your body. And know what works and what doesn't. If you aren't absolutely comfortable about your opinion ask someone you admire who looks good all the time and get their honest opinion. The person you asked will even feel complemented by the thought that you asked them. For example, like Beyonce her personal shopper is her mother. Well same here. My mom is a one stop shop. Hands down. Just some helpful tips by yours truly.

One of my favorite artist does it again. Sometimes, the artist I admire and love listening to doesn't always come out with great material. Not to mention that I'm a hard critic, though. And I won't say anything. But Amos is really making the mark. Even the video is very artist. Leave it up to Amos to tell us her story. According to other sources, they say, Amos is a fearless explorer, having previously examined such dark topics as adultery, rape, homophobia and death in her rich aural tapestry of rock, electronica, country and Celtic influences. Her acclaimed 12th studio album, Night of Hunters, released in September, delves deep into mythology and classical music. But I say she's clever.

BLACK FRIDAY-Kids Point Of View Of It's FRIDAY, It's FRIDAY!!!!

I had to honestly ask myself. Do I really know the meaning of Black Friday and how did it come about? By definition there were three: 
1. September 24, 1869, the day the markets crashed following a failed attempt by some financiers to corner thegold market. Led to a depression.

2. In a more general sense, any Friday in which a public calamity occurred.

3. More recently, the term Black Friday has been applied to the day after Thanksgiving in which retailers make enough sales to put themselves "into the black ink."  

Considering the fact that stores have opened their doors up to customers like us on Thanksgiving Day and before. Would I brave getting up at the wee hours in the morning, camping out overnight, or waiting in line for hours after I made into the store to buy gifts. Like the lady who camped out at Best Buy since Sunday of last week just to get a bargain. And when find that someone was that willing to sacrifice being there for that long amount of time and she has kids. Because of all the media coverage there was on being there that early. In my opinion, Best Buy should have given her whatever she wanted just because she gave Best Buy free promotion to come to their store. Personally, I wouldn't do it because the store is going to have all kinds of sales leading up to Christmas Day and New-Year's Day. And even after January when Kwanzaa comes around stuff will be marked down. But what do I know I'm just you know...

Lady Gaga Had Her Latest Premiere Video


You know me. I go by first impression. The first thing I noticed was her costumes. The wigs were a bit over the top. The makeup was bit much, as well with a collaboration with Tony Bennett. Does it mean she was inspired by the whole invitation to the President. The dance moves much like Madonna's. In which, everyone makes her aware of. The video aired last night 11/24/2011 on ABC. Again, you can see what you think. Marry The Night!
