The Intellectual Genius of Kim Kardashian

Nearly 10 years ago, Kim Kardashian became a household name and would help change the landscape of entertainment.  Kimberly grew to be famous not for her intellect, business acumen or great sense of humor.  No—she became famous because she slept with Brandy’s brother and video taped it.  Ever since then the world—for whatever reason–has grown deeply obsessed with Kimberly, her love life and her family.

While I’m not one of the millions that has watched her shows, I was amused at her recent ability to #BreaktheIntenet but showing us the naked display of her backside. It was here where I developed a theory about Ms. Kardashian West.  She is obviously an attractive woman (if pretty face, skinny waist and a butt for days –natural or otherwise– is your thing), with strong business know how, and deep family values.  But the only way she can get our attention is by sharing her self- mostly nude- with us?  That doesn’t seem right.

doesthatseemright

That thought right there made me go hmmm? What if Kimberly Kardashian West is more than what meets our eye?  What if she is currently conducting the world’s longest dissertation research on all America? Her study is called “America’s Curiosity of the Exploit of Women as Sexual Beings.” Her thesis is simple: sex sells, especially in America.

You can talk about how you are bored by her antics but then,  she (or her hubby) does something to get you talking about her again. It is our consistent ability to be entertained by such shenanigans that contributes to her rise in fame and wealth.

Disturbing

Yes, I’d rather create reason for chaos than to  deal with a world where people are famous without merrit.  I understand that there is a very good chance that my theory is off base but I’m really rooting for this.

In the small likeliness that I am correct, I’d like to congratulate the future Dr. Kardashian West for accomplishing two amazing feats—her ambitious journey to educate the masses and dealing with Kanye West.  No shade here.

“It’s a Wonderful Life” Sequel

This morning, I was all set to write on something non-film related like dating or shoes. So I sat down to read my morning paper via internet and came across something interesting, “Sequel to ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ Announced.”sally gaspAfter reading THIS, I am at a loss for words.  Fortunately what I lack in verbiage I can express in GIFS.

Are we doing this? A sequel from a movie made like 100 years ago? This just reeks of unoriginality! Is there not ONE scriptwriter out there with a new idea?

jane shrug

How did this pitch meeting go?

Exec: You remember the Christmas movie “It’s a wonderful life”?

Other Exec: No?

Exec: Perfect! Le’ts make a sequel!

Other Exec: You mean a remake?

Exec: Nope, a sequel.

Other Exec: Great! Let’s do it

Le sigh! I.CANNOT.  I give up.

Go ahead. Remake and sequalize (for the purpose of this post sequalize is a word) everything! Let’s just go to the beginning of film history and start over.  Birth of a Nation again, Citizen Cane: Rosebud’s story, His Girl Friday: the weekend edition.  I’m out of energy on this one and apparently so is Hollywood.

The Thirst: The Hunger Games Edition

Lionsgate is considering creating a “Hunger Games” theme park.  A theme park? Seriously?william shatner wtfShould we also consider opening a “Lord of the Flies” theme park or what about the Attic of Anne Frank Park or a Hotel Rwanda Resort? “Oh, that sounds like a GREAT idea” says NOBODY!  Why? Because it is scary! Ain’t nobody about celebrating cruelty of mankind.

I am a fan of “The Hunger Games”.  I loved the books, I loved the first movie, I loved Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, I just loved it!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with “The Hunger Games”, it is a dystopian (opposite of utopian) novel that takes place in post apocalyptic Panem.  The Hunger Games is an annual event in which 2 kids from every district are randomly selected to battle each other to death.  It’s the ancient Rome version of the Olympics.  The last kid standing is the winner (and the only kid alive.)  Pretty depressing stuff.

Not depressing like Scandal spoilers depressing but depressing like kids dying depressing.  Not even like kids dying but kids being murdered, straight up assassinated depressing.

So imagine asking your kids “Hey you wanna go to Disney, Six Flags, Lego Land or to the Hunger Games?”  I already know the young version of myself would not be about the Hunger Games life.

what you talkin bout

I’d be all about the House of Mouse, at least I know he ain’t out tryna kill me.  Like where is the fun in fleeing for your life?

Please don’t give me but “The Hunger Games” is fictional crap because it still doesn’t make it less scary.  Those kids had to be skilled with swords, bows and arrows, fight for scraps of food only to die at the end…what part of that says Theme Park to you?

tina fey idk

Am I overlooking the obvious here?  Is there a market for this kind of stuff?  Perhaps this theme park would be used a some sort of alternative punishment that parents and schools could use to discipline their children? I’m really trying to understand this.  Lionsgate may just be trying to see how many ridiculous ways they can squeeze money out of this franchise and that is just plain thirsty!

I can keep going on these bad movie inspired theme parks.  Just in time for the holidays we have Schindler’s Christmas List!

Plus Size Swexy

Swexy= Swag + Sexy

#ToastTip Sometimes we are so overly critical of a situation we forget to appreciate the beauty of what’s right in front of us.

Elle Cover

Actress Melissa McCarthy recently covered Elle Magazine’s annual …Women in Hollywood“ Spread.  The first thing I said when I saw the cover was …WOW! She looks amazing!“ For the record, I’m pretty sure most people said the same thing however there were a few critical folk who made a stink about the fact that Melissa did not show enough skin. They feel that the curvy diva should have shown more skin and flaunt her curves.

I am all about women dressing for their bodies and not being ashamed to flaunt what God gave them. I think there needs to be a lot less fat shaming and more self love. I also think there is nothing wrong with being classy and keeping things covered at times.  In this photo of Melissa rocking this charcoal Marina Rinaldi coat is absolutely classy, feminine and smoldering hot!  This woman looks like a glamazon!  I realize that I may be overreacting because I’ve never seen her dressed this way.  I instantly think …Bridesmaids“.

So no, plus size women should not be confined to muumuus and large flower print smocks.  And yes plus size women should not be afraid to dress sexy and feminine (check out my fave fashion blogger, Gabi Fresh).  But when the time calls for it, less can be more.  So stop hating on what’s not and let’s celebrate what is.  Not to mention Elle put a plus size woman on their cover…that is rare in fashion, so I salute!
