Frolicking in the autumn leaves, this little lion cub is having the time of her life as she excitedly plays in her enclosure.

Tiny cub Karis proved she’s not too dissimilar to human children as she threw herself into the pile of golden leaves carefully collected by her keepers, even ending up with a pile on her head.

Staff at the Blair Drummond Safari Park, near Stirling, Scotland, had been raking up the leaves to keep the attraction tidy, when Karis’s keeper Brian Reid realised that his little charge might enjoy playing in them and moved the pile into her enclosure.

If you did not know about the Pride & Prejudice film from 2005, this scene would be really weird. I mean, at first you see four people coming through the door only looking at Jane and then BAM - Mr. Bingley!

A king has his reign, and then he dies. It’s inevitable.

-Meredith Vickers

A team of scientists travels through the universe on the spaceship “Prometheus” on a voyage to investigate Alien life forms. The team of scientists becomes stranded on an Alien world, and as they struggle to survive it becomes clear that the horrors they experience are not just a threat to themselves, but to all of mankind.

I’ve been told this is a prequel to Alien, and then I was told that it wasn’t. But seriously watching it, it looks like Alien. It was not the best thriller I have ever seen and frankly Alien wasn’t the most impressive movie ever. It was entertaining as it had you on the edge of your seat the whole time trying to figure out where they are going to take this and who is going to die. It didn’t follow the rules of a normal horror film and how they kill others off (I just like see if they follow the order I am pre-set to).

But in the end I found the movie stunning with all the features they gave to the alien world and the whole story they had behind it. It is a must see for the summer and likely afterwards. Don’t go in with high hopes and you’ll enjoy it. It isn’t like it is directed by James Cameron or anything.

But yeah, overall review… Watch it.

No subject is terrible if the story is true, if the prose is clean and honest, and if it affirms courage and grace under pressure.

-Ernest Hemingway

Gil and Inez travel to Paris as a tag-along vacation on her parents’ business trip. Gil is a successful Hollywood writer but is struggling on his first novel. He falls in love with the city and thinks they should move there after they get married, but Inez does not share his romantic notions of the city or the idea that the 1920s was the golden age. When Inez goes off dancing with her friends, Gil takes a walk at midnight and discovers what could be the ultimate source of inspiration for writing. Gil’s daily walks at midnight in Paris could take him closer to the heart of the city but further from the woman he’s about to marry.

This movie is inspirational to all those who have struggles trying to achieve their dreams. Anyone can relate to Gil while he is trying to write his first novel and is unable to find the grist he needs to make his work real. Living through the motions is the only way to gain experiences and feel the true emotions that many writers would ream for.

I believe that before, like many movies, that Midnight in Paris was a novel. It was likely much better than the movie. I must say that it was entertaining and if you enjoy historical characters which were a main park in shaping our history than you must watch it. But unless you know these figures, the storyline can be seen as difficult to follow.

I won’t go out of my way to watch it one more, but read it… I might pick up the book soon.

Charles Dickens has always been on my ‘to-read’ list. And I’m sad to say, I will never likely read another work by him. He is one of the classic writers but his characters are too flat and his stories too perdictable (much like any other fictional piece written today). In the end, I found that his long chapters could have been cut to a few pages to get the smae point around. I understand, some people love all this fluff. As a writer myself, I don’t like to put it in my work, and don’t like it with other authors as well. It’s a personal choice, right? Can’t wait for the rest of my reads though.

I just finished The Host by Stephanie Meyer. I was a half fan of Twilight— I didn’t like the writing style but I like the idea of a love story. I believed that our world might just be a better place with Twilight. But with The Host, Meyer has created a masterpiece (well, masterpiece is a big word for this… let’s say, excellent work of literature… yeah that’s better). The end of the human race, aliens and the adventure of attempting to survive. What isn’t to like?

19 Jun Another childhood memory was jumping on the big ol’ trampoline in the backyard. My favourite game was popcorn just because I would bounce so high in the air. Now a days, being adult size, the game not so easy and actually quite dangerous if you are sharing it with three other adult size friends. Good, painful times. I still love that big ol’ trampoline.

19 Jun The smells of fresh cooked dough and the happy sounds of the merry-go-round remind you the bliss of your childhood when the circus or fair would come into town. You would waste money on over priced ride tickets and games that you would never win. That is what cotton candy and candy apples remind me of — along with visits to the dentist.
Even though I didn’t get these two blissful treats at the same time or even at the carnival I had enough to satisfy me for the rest of the summer. But I do want another candy apple.
