Lost In Translation with Kim Kardashian

My disdain for this woman has not gone unnoticed or maybe it has. Shall I continue? Yes, I think I should.

Lena Dunham on Vogue: Highlights

There were so many things to highlight in the Vogue article I chose to blog about it. Lena Dunham is overrated for being underrated meaning she’s is better than people give her credit, meaning she’s the girl people will be talking about 5, 10, 20 years from now changing the way we watch “girls” on television. 

She smacked it up, flipped it and rubbed it down, I’m talking about the script, the typical script in television you see about a group of girls getting together doing things and living life. She’s the game changer of the four-single-girls-syndrome. It’s not all about men, making money and living lavish lifestyles we know they can’t afford. It’s about life, life is about life, the real world and Lena is giving it to us on a rusty silver platter and I am eating it up. 

Here’s Lena on the cover of Vogue, if this isn’t groundbreaking in it and of itself, I don’t know what is:

She makes me want to be a better writer, a better woman and a better human being. If you take the time to read the article you will see that not only does she star in the hit HBO show “Girls” but she also is the writer, director and co-producer and when she has time to breathe through all that she still makes time to work on a documentary film and developing a second HBO series. She’s also contributed first-person essays to The New Yorker and will soon release her debut book, a comic memoir she composed.

So tell me how bad of an all around person have I been this whole time that this girl who’s seven years young than me is doing all of this and I’m sitting here bitching about my boring life. 

I think Lena has pinched a nerve - in the best way I know how.

Shahs of Sunset: Episode 3 Recoop

Yesterday’s episode was evidence that grown ass people can still act like children. I don’t mean to blanket this statement to all cast members and so let me take this time to call those specific ones out of the sandbox. 

Yes, I’m talking about Mercedes a.k.a. “MJ” Javid and at this point that’s all I really need to talk about (but I am giving Reza the side eye for his participation). 

What MJ did to Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi was the perfect example of how to break girl code (yes there is such a thing). MJ almost literally pulled the (Persian) rug from under GG, but why? It not only came out of left field but later we find out it was done with malicious intent. She clearly stated to GG that she told GG’s boyfriend because she was pissed off he was looking at another girl’s ass. But the truth is, it’s no one’s business, that’s between them two, why get involved on matters that are none of your own. But as she said she wanted to prove a point and call her out, again for what exactly?  

MJ could blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol all she wants and the irony that this was the same reason Reza was on the outs with MJ last season. She was this so-called alcoholic drug addict, whatever happen to that. Has Reza how become the enabler or was it all smoke and mirrors? 

MJ and Reza’s behavior is another example of those who have nothing else better to do than to pick on other people, taunt, make fun, judge, mettle into other people’s lives. 

As for Reza, his “facetime interviews” are what prove what kind of person he is, he looooves the drama and where ever he could fit into it and be on the side of the strong and tease the weak there he is. In the last week’s episode, he did it to Lily, why not keep going from here, as we could see GG was next on the list. I think he knows better he’s just not acting out as a better person——but who knows only time will tell.

It’s hard keeping up with the folks of Glendale, CA (since almost ALL Armenians, Persians, Iranians live in this town so I’m going to melt that pot into one central location assuming they all live there). 

At the end of the day, Reza and MJ need to stop watching Mean Girls, Heathers or any other movie that depicts bullying, teasing or taunting of any kind and if they must do it because it’s in their Persian blood then why not Asa. Did you see that “burning sage” bullshit she was doing at the water bottle facility plant, isn’t that a fire hazard? And when did she become a Native American historian or healer? I don’t get her and I don’t want to and if your gonna pick on anyone can’t it be Asa? 

(P.S. I don’t condone any bullying, taunting or teasing of any kind and if my last paragraph came off that way I apologize, Asa has a hold on me. I don’t really mean it. I would never do it. It would never happen. I swear. I promise.)

The New Atlanta Asshole?

After watching last night’s episode it made me wonder, is Vawn using his “honest talk” so women don’t think of him as an asshole? 

He says he tells it like it is, if your not his girlfriend you’ll know it, he’ll be straight up honest, doing things his way, doing things different ——these are his words not mine. But in reality it’s the same old song and dance with the same old sad little puppies. 

I’ve seen this kind of guy, I’ve dated this kind of guy…..and yes I know, I know, there are girls like this too. I get it but the ratio between the two is proven to be guys do this a whole lot more, women are playing catch up for all the many years of being played. 

Anyway, going back to Vawn and Africa. I am a firm believer of the saying “it takes two to tango”. They are grown ass adults but at the end of the day you can’t help who you fall for, eventually you hope everyone learns from their mistakes.

Still what Vawn did was douchey because that wasn’t honestly walking out the door with a girl in arm, it was bluntness and there is a huge difference between being honest and blunt.

You keep talking about honesty, out of respect for the women, but a man who respects a woman wouldn’t actually do the thing you did. It was a blatant form of disrespectful to someone you obviously care about (if you didn’t you wouldn’t have said those things about her with the boys at the gym - don’t get it twisted). 

You like many guys in your shoes are afraid of love, you are afraid of having no control over your feelings, of getting hurt, of feeling vulnerable and out of control. Yes, these things happen in relationships but that is when you learn the most about yourself and guys like this proves you’re not only ready for a relationship but not ready to become a man.

Only a man truly feels comfortable to allow himself to feel these things knowing that whatever happens he will survive and the woman he will do this with is worth the risk. 

Sometimes, even love could be that black and white but you’re just too blind to see it and right now it doesn’t look like you deserve a woman like Africa either. 

Thoughts, questions, comments, please share. I’d love to know your opinion on this episode or any before that.

Kanye on Kimmel

Last night as I was watching the “epic” Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel interview I realized this guy is trying way too hard to convince people of his greatness and “genius” status. He always mentions things that happened in the past such as people telling him he could never be a rapper and nowadays its he could never be a fashion designer blah blah blah. I mean how many times can a person hear this childish stopping of the feet. He just sounds like a spoiled brat who isn’t getting his way again knowing he’s gotten his way before. 

A message to Kanye, get over yourself, the moment you do people will get on and truly like you for who you are not this persona you call yourself. 

And last but surely and sadly not least when you say something like this,

"There’s no way a Kim Kardashian shouldn’t have a star on the [Hollywood] Walk of Fame. Everyone is so dated and old-fashioned."

I bet this is what Jay Z and Beyonce are doing…..bwahahaha

Madonna’s Freedom To Express Yourself! (VIDEO)

This video essentially shows the passion and burning sensation Madonna has to “express herself” to have the freedom to do so without being judged. Although she knows better and is well aware of that judgment but that doesn’t stop her from doing so. This video just shows how the freedom of expression isn’t about her, isn’t about how much money she could make off of the shock value of kissing another girl, shaking her ass and so forth. She’s preaching and she does it well. This is 17-minutes worth your time. Watch it. 

"Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you"
