New Trend!

Published July 14, 2010 by ladyserenity92

Isaiah Mustafa, AKA ‘the Old Spice man’
Lady Gaga.
Susan Boyle.
What do these people have in common?
There were ordinary ‘nobodys’ that are now overnight superstars!
A new trend is on the rise! From Youtube to the blogosphere, Hollywood is looking for plain-Janes and Joe -whatevers- via the internet or anywhere in the shadows.

In the days of old Hollywood, you had to have a pretty-face and a lot of ‘gleam’. And… you couldn’t be yourself.
But as the recession has cost Hollywood to take to the web and shut down most of its talent agencies, new faces are showing up in the unexpected places.
Justin Biel from Canada was found on YouTube, and is now a tween singer.
Susan Boyle was an unemployed outsider from Scotland that was singing on the UK talent show “Britain’s Got Talent.” She’s now having the last laugh–all the way to the bank! ($6 million dollars!)
And the Old Spice Man (Isaiah Mustafa)….
Well… let’s just say that he’s loved by millions of fans just like Lady Gaga! 😀
I can tell you more nobodies that made the grade to fame like the “Mormon mom’ that turned her dream into a best-selling novel series or the school that turned ‘Scarface’ into a school play.
Maybe… I would tell you about a group of college kids that turned ‘Avatar’ into a fanvideo.
Fame takes time and (sometimes)a little bit of money. You have to plan your fame wisely. You have to do things your own way and not imitate someone else’s style.

If you got talent, don’t hide it in the darkness. Bring it out into the light. Don’t make up excuses until it’s too late.

Poor J.D. Salinger 😦

Stay Tuned!

Goodbye, January! Hello, February!

Published January 31, 2010 by ladyserenity92

Today’s January 31, 2010. In less than 2400 hrs, it will be the first day of February. The last week of January was one that made me happy, made me cry; it was a week that just burned my hash browns. Here’s a small list of the last week of January that will always stay with me forever.

  • The death of author JD Salinger. —- As an anime fan, I always stay up late to watch the anime lineup on Adult Swim when I get a chance. It was on the cyberpunk anime Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex that got me hooked on the novel The Catcher in the Rye and its author JD Salinger. I wanted to know what the novel and Mr. Salinger had on the anime. I went to the library and checked out the novel. I was soon sucked into the world of New Yorker teenager, Holden Caulfield. After I read the last page, I knew that Holden was just like me and everybody young and old. It was one of a few books of JD Salinger’s that moved me. I was in the middle of reading another of Salinger’s works Nine Stories when the newsbrodcasted was made that Mr. Salinger expired. Although Mr. Salinger didn’t like fans nor fame(and he hated being mentioned by anyone), deep down, he knew that the young people and the world liked his stories. It was one of the many reasons that he hid himself from the and stopped writing. Whatever is in Mr. Salinger’s safe, it doesn’t matter. JD Salinger was one of a few authors that broke the line of childhood taboos. If anyone talked about how good a genius he was in life, Mr. Salinger would had said: ‘Goddamn it, I know that you people love my books! Thank you, now leave me alone so I can be in peace in Heaven!‘ 

And now, JD finally has found that peace he always wanted

  • The Irish Angel —- When 15–year old Phoebe Prince moved from the green hills of Ireland, she had always hoped that the American Dream she had always read and heard about would be a land of rock & roll, hamburgers and beautiful boys with white teeth and a smile to die for. When Phoebe came to Massachusetts, she was caught up in an American nightmare. Phoebe was bullied by and group of mean girls who didn’t know her. It wasn’t until one of the mean girls sent her a chilling text message that told her to go hang herself. sadly, Phoebe wanting to escape the American nightmare did just that. No one hasn’t been punished nor anyone has come forward, fearing they will end up just like her. Phoebe left behind a mother, father, and three sisters and a brother. Bullying is on the rise in this country. Bullying isn’t an American nightmare, it is a worldwide nightmare. It is just sad that not enough funding is being offer to end the epidemic. How many more people will die in vain from bullying before we as a group have to act?

 Stay tuned!
