Looking Forward to…

Hey there!

For those of you not working on Sundays I wanna say TAKE ME WITH YOU!

Here in Israel, we do work on Sundays and it’s usually a draggg…

Today, it took me about 40 minutes to get out of bed, convince myself that this is all for the best and that routine is good for me. This is a self session I go through every single morning while repeatedly mumbling “I can’t do this all over again”.

So, I finish working in like 2 hours and I just can’t stand today and all I can think of is venting and writing and thinking about stuff I look forward to this week.

And so, without further ado, here are the 5 things that’ll hopefully salvage my bored soul from this yawn of a day.

  1. Tap class – the one and only reason I can endure Sundays. Now that I’ve leveled up, I find Tap a LOT more challenging. #taptaptapgiphy (17)
  2. Viking, season 1 – nothing lifts up my spirit these days more than Ragnar Lodbrok’s ocean Blue eyes (I can just drown in them). Thank god for TV, Scandinavia and Travis Fimmel.giphy (18)
  3. Natural Born Killers lecture – how about a glimpse inside the mind of serial killers to shake off a conventional week, eh? Bring on the psycho’s, sociopaths, and utterly deranged. I’d like to pick their brains, please.
  4. Tuesday in McDonald’s – just made lunch arrangements with my other very bored and excitement seeking co-workers. JUNK, JUNK, JUNK! #junkfoodforthesoul
  5. Sleep – I’m pretty sure that doing all of the above grants me the right of a good night sleep.

I’m usually a happy person, unless it’s a Sunday. That’s when I can be a real b$%&^*. On Mondays I’m still recuperating, so I’m basically more communicative on Tuesdays and further on. Until then, I try to take part in activities that require less to no talking. Ahh, venting is good. It’s good for you.

I won’t be doing this every Sunday because I’ll be probably fast asleep on my keyboard, so enjoy this while you can. Anyways, I think it’s a nice change from posting movie reviews. I felt like a change’s in order. You with me?

Thank you for reading. Comments are always more than welcomed.

Hey, Y’all!

I have just been congratulated by WordPress for my 3rd year blogging! Yay

Phew… 3 years, eh? gosh, I have never been this committed to anything in my whole life!

But… there’s one reason why I keep doing this, apart for my love to movies which began at age 5… Yeah guys & gals, it’s you!!!!!

You are a-w-e-s-o-m-e!!

I love being surrounded by amazing bloggers, participate in awesome blogathons , read great movie reviews, hilarious stories, and witty haikus (I’m looking at you, Anthony), see super cool art, adore Meg & Michelle (I’m looking at you, Paul), and catch up on naughty bedtime stories (he knows who he is…).

I often take blogging hiatuses, I’m fully aware of that… and I always end up missing the blogosphere and being engaged and just share stuff with you. It’s fun. I love it. I appreciate you dearly for reading my posts, commenting, liking, and following… I never take that for granted, and I do hope our virtual relationship will carry on for many years to come. Let’s raise a toast, shall we?

Here’s to many more years of blogging ❤

OMG, It’s Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Are you ready to spook the bejesus outta someone or get the jitters yourself tonight? Have you packed your candies and rehearsed your Trick or Treat? Have you gruesomely decorated your front door and backyard with fake spiderwebs, jack-o-lanterns and polystyrene graves? Have you practiced singing horrific lullabies by the fire place and dusted off your favorite Vincent Price films?

Although trick or treating and celebrating Halloween is not a part of my religion, I do solemnly dedicate this day to watching scary as shit movies and playing super dark video games. I love this day so much as it includes all of my favorite things: pumpkins (eating and carving), costumes, witches, horror, black cats, dark decorating, Gothic and quirky films and sweets. Love sweets.

And so, this is my agenda for today:

  1. Play dark video games. Right now focusing on “Fear For Sale – Mystery of McInroy Manor”
  2. Change my ringtone to Beetlejuice theme
  3. Watch Vincent Price on The Masque of the Red Death
  4. Check if Penny Dreadful 3rd season’s out yet
  5. Suffer quietly. I skipped working today due to bad stomachaches, which I’m sure will get better once I accomplish all of the above.

For all of you celebrating this magnificent day, I wish a very scary Halloween.

May you be properly scared and scream your lungs out!

Sinful Meal

I know I’m usually posting movies & music reviews, but after thinking about it for so long, I decided to give other aspects of my life a chance 🙂
I love doing so many things like Tap dancing, eating, sewing, making artsy things, decorating, making jokes, and so on, and I need to share this with you, NEED TO. I’m a movie buff, no doubt, but I don’t think I’d enjoy TV without

I’m a movie buff, no doubt, but I don’t think I’d enjoy TV without blending other interests in my life. What good is watching a movie without feeling restful and well deserved to watch a movie after having a long day of work and hobbies? That’s what I say, anyway.

And so, here’s my first non-movie/music post, well rinsed in sweet flavors and loads of calories. Enjoy!

I have looked straight into the devil’s eyes yesterday while consuming a calorie-packed delight that goes by the name of Eggs Benedict & Oreo pancakes.

Warm buns with sweet Jam and Nutella spreads for starters, followed by a glorified main course of Oreo pancakes filled with gushing warm chocolate when slicing the stack in half. Drops of maple syrup saying hello while I’m taking a big pleasurable bite. Fork and knife are working like crazy, cutting crunchy Brioche bread covered in egg yolk and slices of bacon. A cup of cappuccino to wash the food down. All hell broke loose right then and there.

There were three of us in this gluttonous feast, my brother’s girlfriend, my sister and myself, craving for a full-fat dinner after a daunting shopping spree in Ikea.

The holidays are on which means everyone and their mother was at Ikea. Battling masses of shopping carts and this close to picking fights with worn-out parents and screaming kids we decided we had enough. We just wanted to get the hell outta there and decided a proper compensation is very much deserved. We knew where we were headed – Benedict! Yeah, baby, big eyes, full stacks of pies and a whole lot of cries (after). Kidding. We actually didn’t give a flying fudge about the calories. My sister came up with the idea when all three of us easily agreed this was a great day for “cheating”.

Off we went!

40372_680x382Benedict is a chain of Israeli chef restaurants that offer a rich menu of breakfasts from all over the world – New York, Mexico, UK Israel, you name it. They are mostly known for their Florentine style Eggs Benedict served with creamed spinach, onions, and nutmeg. Relish.

We took a table outside, eagerly ordered and patiently waited. We welcomed our food with open arms. While attending to my own dish, I couldn’t help but stare at my sister’s plate as both plates looked so damn good. And so, we shared. No way we could have walked away satisfied if we didn’t. This is one of those “grass is always greener” situations, you know? Pancakes or eggs, eggs or pancakes. Hmmm… BOTH.

10,000 crunchy bites, 2,000 long coffee sips, and one stomachache later, I was about to explode, not to mention my Self-consciousness worked over time.

“Is either one of us gonna wake up feeling bad about this tomorrow?” My sister asked. Well… (burp), but heck, you only live once, right?

Tap, Tap, Tap!

It’s been a while since I’ve properly paid attention to my blog. I love reviewing films and music, but it can get a little mundane as I am cursed with getting bored easily and not being able to stick to one thing. And so I thought perhaps it’s time to spice things up a bit by covering all sorts of other stuff I love doing and thinking about… especially now that I have free time in abundance!

free-time

I’ve decided to do something special for myself. A little gift, if I may, to compensate for my recent unemployment situation. I’ve had this desire to go back to dancing for some time now, but always found a good excuse to postpone it; too much work, too much dating, too much hassle, etc. I finally took the initiation and began searching the net for Tap dancing lessons. Why Tap dancing, you ask? Just because it’s very very cool! Learning how to Tap dance is a great way for someone to refresh their daily routine. Tap dancing is slightly unconventional here in Israel, and like the unconventional person that I am, it seemed like the PERFECT choice. I won’t lie… the coolest part about learning how to Tap dance is buying the shoes. Awesome shoes! I found a pair on sale which is even more awesome, because if I ever decided to drop out, at least I know I didn’t spend that much money on Tap shoes. I love me a good bargain like the next girl.

Check out my NEW SHOES!!! And they have little black bow ties… cute, eh?

I was a little anxious while waiting for the first class to start… Well, it’s been a while since I last attended a dance class. I was afraid I would stumble and fall and everyone would point and laugh at me, however, the opposite happened. Everyone was SOOOO nice! The class ended and I stepped out of the studio waving my credit card, yelling at the receptionist to “SIGN ME UP, GIRL!”

I’m attending the second class this evening, and I can’t wait! I’m smiling throughout the entire thing and I think my teacher really appreciates my having fun. Haha, he called me a dancer. A DANCER!! That felt really good. What an awesome dude…

Tonight I have a chance to break in my new shoes, properly strike the floor and make some tapping sounds. Oh, yeah! God knows I have a lot of aggression to release, and what a better way to do so than to take it out on the floor (who needs boxing?). I will, however, need to embrace some style and grace as to not disgrace the art and reputation of Tap dancing.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you’ll enjoy my new niche of writing about other stuff. I’m obviously not neglecting the film reviews arena completely, just letting in another light to my life 🙂

A little bonus

And now for something completely different…

Film Club: Snowpiercer

Ahhh… another great month for Film Club, and this time we all watched Snowpiercer, reviewed it, loved it, hated it, or just considered it an OK film. This COOL choice was made by Damien from Flashback/Backslide, and I have to say this film really surprised me!! Check out what everybody thought of this futuristic motion picture!

what about the twinkie?

p2oe7mpvd83powiyshr5

For this months edition of Film Club, Damien from Flashback/Backslide had the dubious honour of picking this months film. With that, Damien has chosen one of our most unique films yet; Joon-ho Bong’s Snowpiercer. Snowpiercer is Bong’s first English language film and proved an interesting film for our members to tackle.

As ever, Damien’s reason’s for choosing this months film are listed below, followed by all our thoughts.
