I thought of writing… “Guess who’s back, back again..” but now I’m just stuck singing Eminem’s Slim Shady all day…
Sooooo, are we gonna ignore the elephant in the room and pretend that the last time I blogged was 8 months ago? Yup. For now. 😉
Coz you know when something bad happens and it comes in your memory you kinda go either “lalalalalala” and try to forget, or just straight up to feelz and tears and…so on.
So yeah, we are ignoring it.
Instead I wanted to show you this little jewel of ours. She is 13 years old, she sings and she is Croatian. She won the first Voice for kids here last year and sung the national anthem on a national holiday, but no one thought THIS would happen. I wish Mia ALL the best, and her parents the strength and wisdom to guide her in business as ruthless as showbiz. ❤
Thank you Zee for this. Now I have another song in my head 😛
I can thank Ellen DeGeneres for the title, since she said it. Maybe someone else said it too, but I remember it from her 😀 (Also, does anyone know how can I watch her show on internet? Any info is welcomed…)
It is true, for me at least. A good laugh can brake some serious shit.
“And it feels so empty without me! La la la la la la la la la la…”
This is for all of you that haven’t watch The Oscars last night (well it was early morning here)
I had decided to watch them because we had in Croatia stream and follow up TV show with live stream from L.A. on one of the national televisions. Yaay! 😀
So, here we go. Recap.
Everything you need to know and memorable moments from The Oscars:
Jeniffer Lawrence fell… AGAIN. 😀
And Leonardo DiCaprio didn’t won any Oscars…AGAIN 😦
Jared Leto was fashionably showing that he did not lose his eyebrows during the movie shooting and won an Oscar:
I got to see how crazy it is there, literary everyone is screaming at the Red Carpet. No picture there. Imagine screaming.
Ellen was the host (and the reason why I had firmly decided to put toothpicks in my eyes and stay awake 😉 ) :
U2 performed “Ordinary love” from movie dedicated to Nelson Mandela, but did not won an Oscar. The theme I’m obbssesed with from animated movie Frozen “Let it go” did.
Ellen brought some pizzas on The Oscars:
And made a selfie which crashed down Twitter and became the most retweeted post in history. In the first hour 1,7 milion people retweet it. Second most retweeted post is from Barack Obama, when he became the president for second time. Well, Barack, you can not compete with Julia Roberts, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Ellen DeGeneres, Jared Leto, Brad Pitt, Chaninng Tatum, Lupita N’yongo (winner of the Oscar for the best cupporting actress), Angelina Jolie and Bradley Cooper in one photo! 🙂
For the most important awards, the Oscar for the best film went to “12 years a Slave” (which I have yet to see), Matthew MacConahey won the Oscar for the best actor, Cate Blanchet won the Oscar for the best actress, and the overall winner is the movie “Gravity” with 7 (seven!) Oscars, including the one for best director.
For the fashion side, I must admit I was dissapointed. I get it, they have a dress code, but… Those are some rich people over there and no one can tell me they can’t find beautiful dresses! Honestly, the one that impressed me the most was Pink, when she was performing “Somewhere over the rainbow” for 75years of “Wizard of Oz”:
I have a problem with posting a tag under my post which says “funny” or “humorous”. I do find myself funny, I just… I don’t know. I have jokes and I carry sarcasm and irony in my sleeves. (You don’t want to know where I carry them at summer)
But… I can’t label myself funny. I can tag my post “amazing” or “beautiful” or “inspiring” but not “funny”. The truth is that I think you don’t get to label yourself funny, others do. That is why comedians don’t tell jokes to a mirror, they do it in front of an audience.
Speaking of comedians, I think that how you say something is as much important as what do you have to say. How they carry their body, gesture, mimic, laugh, how they talk is a part of a whole, making their comedy funny. (or not) Oh, and I love Ellen. I have a true feeling of love for a person I do not know. There is a legend that you can’t watch just one Ellen video. I’m starting to believe that is true. 🙂 To prove that I have a little something for you… 😉
Also there is a problem of different language. At first I think I wrote like a Customer Service on E-bay: “I made this. Thank you. You good people.” Ok, not the last one. I knew English as much as i do now, more than a half-year later, so why? I don’t know… It was all so new… and awkward… And I went for safe. I wrote. Plain. Sentences. Add to all that a problem of expressions. We say in Croatia for example; “His axe fell into honey” when someone gets really lucky, but that doesn’t mean anything at all in English. And vice versa. I still feel I can’t say what I want because of my lack of knowledge for slang, everyday speech or idioms.
But I got more and more comfortable with writing in English and with blogging in general, so I can now show more of my true self. 😀
p.s. I don’t know if it is correct to write: english or English
p.p.s. I realised few days ago I was using the wrong tense of a word choose on blog. I meant chose. In past tense. But, that is in so many of my posts… Ah.
Update: I fell for my own trap and watched Ellen stand-up comedy for two hours yesterday. Damn you Ellen!! I’m kidding. I love you. ❤
