When the Queen of RnB released her first album, it was a instant classic..

1992 was a very long time ago but the beats are still fresh as a daisy!!

Cheryl Cole has gone and done a Katy Price!!

•22 July 2014 • 2 Comments

Unless you have been buried in a deep dark hole for the last couple weeks you would have heard that Cheryl Cole has gone off and got herself married, after being with this geeza for 3 months!!

Now don’t get me wrong there is a 1 in a million chance that this could work out and the gamble they took pans out nicely.

But realistically is that going to happen? I think not.

Two normal people find it hard to really know each other within 3 months so for 2 “famous” people it must be a nightmare. Ok they are in the honeymoon phase where they are probably spending weeks together at a time. But what happens when the honeymoon phase is over and life becomes normal again?

And why the rush?

The obvious advantage for him is that she is way to loyal, Ashley Cole basically had to publicly himuliate her before she done something about it (see.. ) and I suppose the advantage for her is that she gets that level of security. But they could have had both of those things without marriage.

So what do you think?

3 months Marriage
1 year baby
3 years divorce

The interweb is calling this French Geeza a “playboy” but that could be all media hype so I won’t judge a guy I have never seen or heard of before.

I hope it lasts, I hope she’s really happy and is with him forever but this geeza could be a proper loon and she wouldn’t know yet.. it seems way to rushed.

Maybe there is a bun in the oven already??

Flashback Friday #00133 – Get Rich or Die Tryin’

When 50 Cent released his first album he came strong. With Dre and Eminem sorting out the beats and production I wouldn’t expect anything less.

Yeah ok, he didn’t produce the greatest lyrical content but there were a lot of bangers…

Yeah ok kids now are going crazy over One Direction but back in the day we had another level.

I’m not sure about the dress code, but hearing these tunes still puts a smile on my face and makes me shake a leg a little…

Star Wars: How will your kids watch theirs?

Star Wars

At some point you are likely to have children in your life and at some point you will allow (some say force) them to watch the greatest story ever told.

The question I have is which order do they watch them in?

Date released order (Chronological), i.e. IV, V, VI, I, II, III

or

Story order (Episode), i.e. I, II, III, IV, V, VI

Both have their advantages and disadvantages.
Story order gives it a nice flow (and gets Jar Jar Binks out of the way early)
Episodes II & III are a bit dark and they may not be initially ready for that!
Watching the older films second means they go backwards in CGI quality.
All those quality reveals in the original films are lost like:

  • “Luke I am your father”
  • “My sister has them”
  • “You’re Yoda!”

Explaining what a prequel is may be an issue.. If your small people are really small (or really dense)
Watching them in release order leaves the viewer on a bit of a low with the death of Padme and the turning of Anakin
Watching then in Story order leaves the viewer on a nice high where the death star and been destroyed and the dark side has won.

So how are you going to do it?

The tinternet talks about a juggling/flashback order where you watch the 3 new films as a flashback during the original films, so you watch them in IV, V, I, II, III, VI order. This sounds a little strange but some people say it works.
They also talk about not watching episode I at all!! Now that is just foolishness!! But to me that’s like only supporting your sports team when they are winning, a distinct lack of dedication!!!
For all the flaws that episode I has, without it the viewer misses out on Anakin meeting Padme for the first time and C3P0 and R2D2 meeting for the first time! Plus no matter which way you look at it, Liam Neeson is a true badman in any film so you cannot skip him!! Yeah you may not like Jar Jar Binks, you may think the pod race is pointless action, you may even not like Darth Maul but to skip a whole episode is just madness I tell you!!
So next time I watch them I’ll give this a go (Yes everyone should watch these at least every 2 years!!). But I don’t think this is the way forward for a small persons first watch.

Soon the problem gets even worse because VII, VIII, IX are going to be released and they will be even better visually, oh what am I going to do???

My cousin is here from the U.S she likes a little Donaeo in her life so after the first Donaeo post I thought I’d give her a little more…
