Despicable Me

Despicable Me is a very sweet movie. I recently watched it and I fell in love with it. I think it is a great movie and that it teaches small children good lessons. OK, I'll stop sounding like a counselor.











I think that my favorite characters in the movie were the minions. Yep, those fellows on the left.






Here's the plot:

               In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru, planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon. (Yes, the moon!) Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world's greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes. IMDb

So yeah...this is a movie completely worth watching. 

Here are some pictures from the movie.

If I die young by The Band Perry


"If I Die Young"

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh, uh oh

Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
She'll know I'm safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh,
And life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no
Ain't even grey, but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had just enough time

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song    

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had just enough time

And I'll be wearing white, when I come into your kingdom
I'm as green as the ring on my little cold finger,
I've never known the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holdin' my hand, 
There's a boy here in town, says he'll love me forever,
Who would have thought forever could be severed by

The sharp knife of a short life, well,
I've had just enough time

So put on your best, boys, and I'll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh, no, I'll sell 'em for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singin'
Funny when you're dead how people start listenin'

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh (uh, oh)
The ballad of a dove (oh, uh)
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep 'em in your pocket
Save 'em for a time when you're really gonna need 'em, oh

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had just enough time

So put on your best, boys, and I'll wear my pearls.

I will always love you

One song you never get tired of

"I will always love you" by Amber Riley from Glee


Celebrity of the Week: Kelly Clarkson


American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson was born Kelly Brianne Clarkson on April 24, 1982, in Fort Worth, Texas, and later moved to Burleson, Texas. This Greek descent's family consists of mother named Jeanne; step father named Jimmy Taylor; one brother Jason (b. 1973); and one sister Alyssa (b. 1976).

When Kelly was still 13 years old, she was approached by a teacher in her middle school, Pauline Hughes Middle School, about joining the choir; after she was heard singing in the hallway. Nobody had ever really realized her talent or even given her such chance until she got there, that her teacher really supported her to improve her singing skill. From that point, her participation in choral and musical activities had approvingly spurred her interest in a recording career. 

As an attempt to reach her dream, following her high school graduation, Kelly relocated to Los Angeles,
California. There she worked as an extra on television, appearing on the WB's "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" and worked briefly with songwriter Gerry Goffin. After that works, her Los Angeles apartment burned down, and she reluctantly moved back to Texas in desperation, but still intent on a career in show business. Arriving in Texas, Kelly began her life from nothing, managed some odd jobs, including worked as a cocktail waitress; a promo girl for Red Bull; at a movie theater, where the premiere of her movie "From Justin to Kelly" was later held; in a pharmacy; at Chili's, the Fort Worth Zoo; as a telemarketer, sold Kirby vacuum cleaners door to door for a day, and did other jobs as well.

In the middle of her desperation, one of her friends, Jessica, encouraged her to stand still and suggested her to try out for Fox's new show "American Idol," the search for a superstar. And so in 2001, along with ten thousand others, Kelly auditioned for the American Idol, for which she said to know nothing about it and tried it out just for fun. Chosen as one of the finalists, she performed live every week for ten weeks with an estimated 25 million viewers, sang such songs as "Respect," "Natural Woman," and "Without You". As fate would have it, she was chosen a favorite among voters, mainly because of her powerful voice and sweet personality. And when the final show came, that was on September 4, 2002, Kelly performed "A Moment Like This," a song written especially for American Idol. 


Kelly, the only contestant to have never landed in the bottom three, was at the end revealed as the winner, became the first "American Idol" with 58 percent of the votes in the final contest against Justin Guarini. Becoming the newly crowned "American Idol," she automatically received the show's prize of a one million dollar recording contract with RCA Records and also signed a deal 
with Creative Artists Agency. In succession, Kelly then went on the seven week national American Idol Tour, and on September 11, 2002, she sang the National Anthem in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. 

Two weeks after winning the title 'American Idol,' Kelly released her first single "A Moment Like This," which quickly reached number one on the Billboard charts in just one week after its release. By and by, this single set an American record, rising on October 5, 2002, from No. 52 to No. 1 on the Billboard charts, a record previously held by The Beatles with "Can't Buy Me Love". Despite the fact that she's becoming a superstar, Kelly decided not to move to L.A. or New York. Rather, she remained in Texas.

On April 15, 2003, she had her first full-length album "Thankful" released by RCA Records and was certified as "double platinum," signifying over two million sales in the US by the RIAA. Along with this attainment, many critics pointed to Kelly's much success as could be accredited to the commerciality of her
music, yet "Thankful" still garnered good reviews. Aside from various critics dedicated to her, Kelly's first single "Miss Independent," also received wide notice and acclaim. Furthermore, in April the same year, the singer debuted in her first film with Idol runner-up, Justin Guarini. The movie entitled "From Justin to Kelly" is a musical about two teens, Justin and Kelly, who fall in love while on Spring Break in Miami. The character's romance gets sidetracked when their friends get in the way. Unfortunately, the film received weak reviews and was a box office disaster. 

Although the movie was not a blockbuster success, Kelly still remains a respected and known artist. As an evidence, in 2004 she received a Grammy Nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her Top 10 hit single "Miss Independent." Moreover, she also embarked on the 30 cities Independent Tour with fellow American Idol contestant, Clay Aiken (2004), and that same year she released "Breakaway" her sophomore album which was debuted at #3. Though her first album debuted at #1 and sold a few thousand more copies in its first week, industry
experts noted this was not too bad of a sophomore slump. To date, "Breakaway" has sold over 2 million copies, got double platinum and remained in the Billboard Top 10, selling about 90,000 copies per ...
week, while her singles "Breakaway" and "Since U Been Gone" have both garnered widespread airplay and made it into the U.S. Top 10. Since then her career has gotten bigger and bigger!
