Wolverine The Musical!

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

Did you miss me? I wish I could say I was off saving the world and doing other important things, but really I just fell into an all consuming funk of laziness. But now I’m back and better than ever! Or at least just as good as I was before. I found something perfect to celebrate my return and tomorrow’s holiday a little early. It’s Hugh Jackman singing for Wolverine The Musical! (I think that would be a winner for that one card in Cards Against Humanity.)  Okay so here’s the April Fools part, there is no Wolverine The Musical. I know you’re disappointed BTs, especially since we were all crazy about the idea of the Spider-Man Musical. (Yes that sentence was 100% sarcasm.) The song in this video is in fact a parody of “Who Am I” from Les Miserables but it is Hugh Jackman singing which makes it totally worth a watch. I hope you get a good laugh out of it.

Join the TwitterFiction Festival

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

enhanced-10124-1393265577-7

I stole this from Buzzfeed but it was just too cute!

I’m switching up the order of things today. Normally Wednesday is my fashion day, but it I waited until Friday to write about this it would be halfway to the finish line. Today starts the 2014 TwitterFiction Festival! The Association of American Publishers and Penguin Random House have partnered to make the 12-16th an online event you won’t want to miss. There is a list of featured authors off the #1New York Times bestseller’s list that will be participating in the festival available on the official TwitterFiction Festival page. That the exciting part for avid readers. But the cool part for emerging authors is that there will be a group of publishers and editors that are Festival Entry Judges. To my understanding these judges will be watching the tweets that have #TwitterFiction attached for new talent. They’re decision are based “on creativity, unique use of Twitter functionality, and writing talent.” Now while I’m not sure what exactly becoming an official Festival participant means as far as the next few days are concerned, but it couldn’t hurt in the long run to have a group of professionals in the writing industry take notice of you. Either way the about section of the official page has some good tips to get you started with your TwitterFiction. Best of luck to all of you that plan to join the Festival.

Grow Your Own Street Art

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

You all know about my fascination with street art by now, so you can only imagine my reaction to the ability to grow graffiti!!!! Yes it was worthy all four of those exclamation points. When I was sent the how-to image below I knew that you guys would love it too. After all it is a pretty unique way to bring nature into your art. I know you’re probably eager to go test it out. Have fun BTs.

What if Clueless were a Rap Video?

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

Last week Iggy Azalea brought out the music video for her song “Fancy” ft. Charli XCX. For all of you that are fans of the 1995 movie Clueless this video will probably seem like deja vu. Iggy Azalea has take many popular scenes for the movie and added her own attitude to them for her new video. Enjoy a flash back to the 90s and a new song all at the same time BTs.

Spontaneous Photo Shoot

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

Yesterday my Picture Prompt on Instagram was a picture of a really pretty tree that was dropping pink blossoms everywhere. I didn’t post the other pictures I took at the time. My cousin and I had a spontaneous photo shoot under that tree when we first saw it and then went back after changing into some cuter outfits. Here are my favorite pics from under the tree! None of my cousin are included cause I’m all about me. Okay not really, I’m just trying to respect her privacy plus I would have to get appoval on which shots to use first and all that other stuff.

My David Sedaris Obsession Grows

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’ve been lazy this week as I said in my last post and so I haven’t actually finished a book. But I did start the David Sedaris book Me Talk Pretty One Day which I’m choosing to view as a sign that I’m getting my crap back together for next week. Still since I haven’t finished the book yet I can’t type away praising every page just yet. I can however give major props to the man who wrote it. I’ve been a Sedaris fan for a while now and I was thrilled when I saw this book at the used book store for only nine dollars, usually his books can be a bit more pricy. Instead of telling you about how wonderful the book is though tonight I’m gonna share this link to his reading on The Late Show from a while back. This is just a tiny glimpse of how funny Sedaris can be. I hope you enjoy it BTs.

The YouTube Cartoon for Cat Lovers

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’ve been off my game this week. I really have no excuses because I was just out having fun. Still I’m sad that I missed a day so I’m going to post twice tonight! The subject of this post is an adorable webseries called Simon’s Cat! Pretty much it’s just a lot of two or three minute cartoons about this cute white cat and his animated adventures. They are yet another great way to kill time on YouTube.

The New Threadless App!

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

One of my favorite t-shirt websites has made the leap to the app world! Threadless Tees can now be purchased from the comfort of your iPhone! I don’t know why I find that so cool but I took screen shots on my phone to show you the app in action. I think the coolest part for the app is being able to vote on the new t-shirt designs faster and on the go.

Sarcastic Street Art

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’m sorry for this but I’m feeling so lazy today. As a result I’m half-assing this post. Still I hope you love these satirical street art pieces from an artist known as Mobster.
