CANNIBAL COP???

So I found another reason that you should watch your back when it comes to the police. While reading the AM New York today, I came across the story of one Officer Gilberto Valle, 28. Valle was arrested for allegedly conspiring to kidnap, torture, cook and eat women. Yes you heard me cook and eat women. REALLY! Did Dunkin Donuts run out of food or something.


 Gilberto "Gil" Valle, an NYPD cop, from his Facebook page. Said to have planned the abducting of 100 women to eat them.
Valle, Via Facebook
Investigators discovered a filed on Valle's computer containing the names, addresses, and physical description of some of the women he had planned to have for dinner. It said that he even had some of them under surveillance, following from work to their homes.

Currently and thankfully Valle is behind bars. His attorney a woman nonetheless is appealing to get the 6 1/2 year police vet. out on bail. (It's been denied 2x) Of course Valle has plead not guilty to the charges and his lawyer claims he was all talk.

Really people of all the things that we have to watch out for in this world now you have to think whether or not the person you're suppose to get HELP from is going to eat us. As a woman I am happy that they are keeping him behind bars. We have heard too many stories of police officers doing things that doesn't fit the image of a protector of the innocent.

We stopped eating people a long time ago..Well some of us, but either way this is just some scary stuff man. I hope he doesn't like dark meat.

BREAKING DAWN PART 2 AGAIN

So yesterday  I went to see Breaking Dawn Part 2 again and it was just as spectacular as when I saw it on Friday. This time around I didn't go a lone; I took one of my friends with me that just happens to be a guy. Of course being a man he was really prepared to hate it and throw a bunch of criticism my way and at the movie about how much it sucks. On the train ride to the movies we spoke about tragic love you know Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet & Ophelia, Edward and Bella (yes there love is tragic in someway).

Well once we got to the movies were arrived a little too early and pass the time by browsing around my less favorite book store Barnes & Nobles. Being the NERDS that we are we spent most of the time talking about books that we are currently reading and books that we wish to read. Near the end of our lengthy conversation we ended up in my favorite part of the bookstore the Shakespeare section. We went through each of his plays saying which ones we've read and what we thought was good about it and what we thought about some of the characters.

Eventually we finally ended up at the movies and happily Breaking Dawn blow my friend again.  Here is what  he said to say

"So,I'm just coming back from watching breaking dawn part two, i must admit i went with much skepticism and expected to fall asleep early in the movie, i even bemoaned the fact that i left my book about allan greenspan i could've read while the expected snorefest was showing, i was rudely awaken, i was a pleasantly surprised  this could easily be called the movie of the year and will surprise anyone who goes to watch it, i encourage everyone to go out and see it and as soon as i can find someone to buy me a ticket I'm going again,lol its that good."

So ladies if you have a male friend that you want to take to see Breaking Dawn Part 2 and they utterly refuse have them read this and give it a chance and see the look on there face when the movie is over and say "I TOLD YOU SOO!"

BREAKING DAWN 2: BEST TWILIGHT SAGA MOVIE

OMG! If you haven't seen Breaking Dawn Part 2 there is something wrong with you. But let me start wit this: This was the best Twilight Saga movie...EVER EVER EVER

The movie opens up with a song we all know and love. I know when I here it, it makes me think about love and I don't me regular love I mean the love to end all love. I am to not going to tell you the song cause I hate spoilers.  As we all know by now Bella is a vampire and a beautiful  strong one at that. No matter what you think of Kristen Stewart, she acted the hell out of this role. Maybe it was because this was her last time being Bella, but who the hell care I am happy she did. She performed like never before, staying true to the emotions Bella poured out after her transformation.

Robert Pattinson was amazing as always. Playing the part of the loving father and husband, he made sure that we would never forget that he would always be Edward Cullen. The rest of the cast and the newcomers to the Twilight universe gave great performances and they were a blessing to watch.

I want to give kudos to Nikki Reed who really transform Roz from a totally you know what, to the best vampire aunt a young halfling could asked for. She did Roz justice in every way. The young girl that play Renesmee Mackenzie Foy was marvelous. She portrayed our beloved vampire child to the absolute T.

I will truly miss seeing Peter Facinelli as Daddy Cullen and I will miss Jackson Rathbone''s crooked Jasper smile. I am very sad the series is over and there will be more movies but I am truly happy they left us with something totally wonderful and something I can watch over, and over, and over you get the idea.

At the end of the movie everyone was cheering including myself and I can tell you I'm not a cheer kinda person. The movie is filled with suspense, comedy, action, and over all just amazing. When I was leaving I found myself singing the end song and felt sad and happy at the same time. This is absolutely the best Twilight Sage movie EVER and I recommend no I employ you to see it. If you don't I'm sorry you're not a really Twilight fan sorry.

I loved it and happily I have tickets to see it again on Sunday and it's well worth it.

DEADTIME STORIES: GRAVE SECRETS

">Grave Secrets: Deadtime StoriesGrave Secrets: Deadtime Stories by Annette Cascone
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So I went a little young with my reading. I had this book since October where I picked it up at Comic Con and even meet the authors (so it's signed). What can I say, but I love it. I love the characters, the suspense, and everything in the story. As an author of books in the same genre and age group it was worth reading to get a lesson how it should be done.

The book and story over all was great. Amanda, Jarrad, Kevin, and Laura are all wonderfully written characters. I wont give any of the story away but it has you guessing the whole time about Ms. Barns. I would most definitely recommend this book for your readers that are into goose bump giving reads.

BRANDED MOVIE REVIEW (WHAT A TRIP)

You ever wonder why you can't resist the urge to go into McDonalds or Burger King and sink your face into that fating stuff they pass off as food. Well I just watched a movie that tried to explain it all.
BRANDED I must say has to be one of the most worst/best movies I've seen in a long time and I've seen a lot of bad movies; I have the Sci-Fi channel. Yes I know it came out earlier this year, but I just saw it.

Branded PosterIn a world blanketed by advertising the lead character in the movie Misha Galkin (portrayed by Ed Stoppard) fines that he has a knack for selling people things.  Set in Russia which in the movie is a large testing ground for international companies and their products. Misha uses his skill to sell the Russian people on everything. Not only is he an advertising executive but he is also a spy. He is recruited by Bob Gibbon portrayed by Jeffery Tambor to help sell the Russian people the crap that the west is already drowning in, burgers, soda, fast food galore, and not to mention reality TV. But he is also to spy on the up and coming companies for the good of Democracy.

Misha meets Gibbon's niece who is in Russia to produce a reality TV show much like the one we had here in America where they take some sad sack that doesn't think much of her self and have them cut her up and supposedly make her look pretty. Well in the movie the girl that they put under the knife ends up going into a coma and they have to find some schmuck to take the fall. So Misha goes to jail, but was later released thanks to the efforts of Bob. (It was Bob who had Misha put in jail in the first place since he messed with his niece).

Misha goes off the reservation and becomes a farmer. Bob's niece Anna (portrayed by LeeLee Sobieski) goes out to find Misha and see that he is a total mess and ends up leaving without him. Misha stays on the farm and has a dream about a mystical cow in the sky who tells him how to bring down big business and advertising. After murdering a cow that magically transformed from white to red (If I smoked that would have totally freaked me out). He then goes on to take the ashes of the burnt cow on pours it on himself. He staggers off naked and collapses only to wake up in Anna's car still naked may I add. That part is also kind of trippie because Anna has Misha's kid, so its like 9 -10 years has gone by.

But all is not right. When Misha wakes up he finds that he can see strange creatures attached to everyone. Each of these creates is related to a brand. Pushing people to buy, consume, and push themselves to get it and growing larger after they have consumed the product. You see this when we meet Misha's son who like the rest of the Russia public in the movie is a little fatty.

So I'm not going to tell you the whole movie. I want you to watch it because even thought I thought "man this movie kinda sucks" I also though "man they really have something here". I thought they really had something because it's so totally true that we are bombarded with ads for fast food, cosmetics, trash reality TV shows, and all kind of other products. My kid is only one and I think he's seem more fast food advertising that one add for picking up a book. Yeah sure he doesn't know what it means but that suggestion is being placed in his head from an early age saying this is what you want , this is what you desire.

All in all the movie is a total trip and it had me wondering are we really being programmed like it's suggesting? Should we be affair of all these big brands out there trying to sell us there products?
Even though the movie comes off as boring it's totally watchable and it will have you thinking and also probably looking on your back. So it gets a 6 out of 10...

GEARING UP: BREAKING DAWN PART 2

ANOTHER UPDATE: I WILL BE @ THE AMC ON 34TH STREET @ 5PM TO SEE BREAKING DAWN 2 TONIGHT

UPDATE: I WILL BE SEEING BREAKING DAWN PART 2 SUNDAY @ 130PM AT
THE UA COURT STREET THEATER IN DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN

So I am gearing up to see Breaking Dawn Part 2. Like most Twilight Sage fans I am excited and sad that next week will usher in the end of all the movies. I am very happy that I got to see each and every movie and that Stephenie Meyer wrote such and addictive book. I'm current going to see the movie by myself on Sunday, why you ask well 1) My hubby doesn't like Twilight (I should totally dump him) 2) I can't do opening day because I have to work and then run home to watch my little vampire in the making 3) because I don't know who is going to be around Sunday when I want to see it. 

But like I said totally excited. I am hoping there will be a series out there that will fill the hole that the Twilight Saga will leave in my heart. Luckily Mrs. Meyer writes awesome enough books that everyone wants to make into a movie and I can look forward to seeing the HOST next year. I am hoping that she writes a couple more books and give us something else to be hooked on. If there aren't any vampires I wont be mad. I would love for her to write a little bit into the future and tell us what happens with Renesmee and Jacob, but that is a total long shot.

WHAT IN THE WORLD AM I GOING TO DO NOW--TWILIGHT OVER...SOOKIE STACKHOUSE OVER NEXT YEAR.

One of my friends tried to talk me into reading some fan fiction which I totally shut down right away. I love that some people want the series to go on, but some people take it to weird places when they write this stuff and make you go BARF really BARF some more. Anyway...make sure you get your ticket and if you are in Downtown Brooklyn, Sunday Nov 18th, I'll be there. I will post the time I am going.I will be the one rocking the Edward t-shirt.. Please no weirdos or crazy people ...I will totally go Jamaican on you.

VOTE: IT'S YOUR JOB! 2012 ELECTION

UPDATE: OBAMA WON..SO ANOTHER FOUR YEARS CONGRATULATIONS NOW LETS GET AMERICA BACK ON TOP.


So I got up this morning around 6 A.M got myself ready and went with my Grandma and voted. We had to take a little detour since they changed our voting station and did not mention anything. There were no signs around the school to let us know we had to go somewhere else. I am sure there were probably people inside but we didn't make it that far. Thankful someone that had already gone in told us where we had to go to vote and even gave us a ride (What a nice lady). Nothing was going to stop us from voting especially my Grandma.

I am not going to say who I voted for (but you can guess) since who ever you vote for is your own business, but the important thing is to get up off your butt and go vote.I know some people out there don't like either candidates that are running but guess what it doesn't matter either way one of them well be president, so why not vote for the one who talks about issues that you have on your mind.

I wasn't born in this country but I was damn happy when I chose to become and American citizen. Not only did I learn it was my right to vote, but it was my civic duty to go out and make my voice heard through my vote of what I want and what I stand for.

So remember people it only happens every 4 years and if you don't get out there and vote you're stuck with who the rest of America elects as President. So whether we are welcoming back the current President or ushering a new one into office remember you had your chance to help make the decision. So go out there and VOTE and make a clear choice. If you don't know where you're suppose to vote call 311 and they will give you the information.

30 SECONDS TO MARS:THE GREATEST BAND ON EARTH

Expressing my appreciation for the GREATEST band around (What's your favorite 30 Second to Mars song?)

Okay so I've loved Jared Leto from the first moment I saw him on "My So Called Life". I was the only black chic in school rocking plaid because of him. After the series ended it was hard for me to find things he was in. Happily he did star well co-star in a couple movies that I watched with great enjoyment. But even though I love Jared as an actor, I love him more as the lead singer to what I am saying is the greatest band on earth 30 Seconds to Mars or even the greatest band in the galaxy.

After punching Jared's name in to my search bar for the millionth time, I found a link that lead me to the video  "The Kill" and man I could have died a happy woman that day. Jared Leto, Shannon Leto, Tomo Milicevi, and then band member Matt Wachter gave me something I was longing for, a band that had a message and that wasn't all about money and groupies. "The Kill" is still one of my favorite songs by the band, but happily they have pumped me full of great songs, like Fantasy, Hurricane, Kings and Queens, and This is War.  Sure there are a ton of other songs I can name that they have that I am in love with but, those are the ones that really really speak to me. (Also Beautiful Lie-can't forget that)

30 Seconds To Mars is a band that always carries the truth with them. In all their songs there is meaning behind the music. In there video for Beautiful Lie we were taught what was really going on in the north when it came to our polar ice caps. The band belted out lyrics while standing on out in the northern cold making us realize that people are willfully lying to  us about the condition of our planet and that we shouldn't believe what we are told so easily. When I saw this video not only was I sadden by the truth but also made aware that I needed to do more.

The bands passion for all things right has spawned a growing movement called the Echelon. This is the name followers of the band call themselves and I can gladly say that I consider myself in this family. The music and passion that the band puts out there pulls people of all walks of life around the world together. The Echelon consider themselves more of a family then just fans of the band. Many even say that the band has a cult like following and they don't deny it. Jared has stated that he does consider the Echelon somewhat of a cult because it's something special that it's not for everyone but only for those that understand.

The band has released 3 studio albums today and are currently working on the 4th. I like so many others out there are waiting patiently to see what amazing work they come out with next. I know for sure that it will carry a message in each and every song and probably knock you on your a** like all their other albums. I have a lot of things on my "things to do before I die list" and seeing 30 Seconds to Mars play live is one of them and above that meeting the band in person to thank them creating such soul shaking, thought provoking music.

So if you haven't heard 30 Seconds to Mars yet and you're reading this I will forgive you for leaving and checking them out or just click http://thirtysecondstomars.thisisthehive.net/

NANOWRIMO: YEAH IT'S A MOUTHFUL

So it's November and for all of you that don't know it yet, I am a writer. Yes you heard me a writer. You might have read some of my papers on here or even seen my post about myself and my series The Adventures of Marco and Carla. Well this month I have taken up a whole new venture. What is it you ask? Well it's NaNoWriMo of course.

NaNoWriMo is an event open to all writers out there. The quest of NaNoWriMo is to try and write 50,000 (Yes I said 50,000) words by the end of November. Each year thousands of writers put a side what they are doing to participate in the event and this year I am one of those writers. I was hard at work on the next volume to The Adventures of Marco and Carla series when I decided to take a break from it and try this out, also it's for school.

So I am currently writing a new story and of course it's YA because that's all I really write, besides papers for class. Hopefully I will have it done by the end of November and published for you find people to read and enjoy. Also if you are a writer check out the NaNoWriMo website NaNoWriMo Link it's a great way to test yourself to see if you have what it takes to write a novel in one month.

Sadly I don't think I will be writing a whole novel. But I am aiming high and trying to get close to those 50,000 words. Who knows maybe I will prove myself wrong and make it to the 50,000 words. Oh yeah you might be wondering what you get for doing this. Well if you get up to 50,000 and after you've sent your story in to be checked (You must write 50,000 words). They will let you know if you've won and when you have you can have a polished manuscript and also publish your book with Createspace and get 5 free copies of your published book.

So brush off that pen of yours and that idea that you have stuck in your head put it paper and write what might be the next great novel.

P.S. If you are on Google + you will fine tunes of great writers on there in NaNo circles that you can talk to and bounce ideas of. We writers are awesome that way.
