Katy Perry’s Carpool Karaoke with James Corden

The pair sing some of Katy’s biggest hits, talk about her new short hair and her epic fall out with Taylor Swift.

“There’s a situation,” Katy told James. “

Honestly, it’s really like she started it, and it’s time for her to finish it.”

The pop stars fell out years ago, after Katy allegedly stole Taylor’s backing dancers. Taylor’s 2015 hit ‘Bad Blood‘ is said to have been written about Katy, and although she hasn’t confirmed it, Katy’s new single ‘Swish Swish‘ definitely appears to be about Taylor.

The track features Nicki Minaj and includes the lyrics,

“So keep calm, honey, I’ma stick around/For more than a minute, get used to it/Funny my name keeps comin’ outcho mouth/’Cause I stay winning”.

The singer is currently doing promo for her upcoming album Witness, out June 9.

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay.

At the end of the day …. “With Topo Gigio”!!


Camita

~~April 5, 2015~~ 

“A la camita” ….. 

Topo Gigio was the lead character of a children’s puppet show on Italian and Spanish television in the early 1960’s. The character, created by artist Maria Perego, debuted on Italian television in 1959 and has been customarily voiced by actor Giuseppe “Peppino” Mazzullo and later Davide Garbolino. The Italian nickname “Gigi” is a derivative of Luigi (“Louis”), so Topo Gigio could be translated as Louie Mouse.

Topo Gigio, a soft foam mouse with dreamy eyes and a childish personality, was very popular in Italy for many years — not only on TV, but also in children’s magazines, such as the classical Corriere dei Piccoli, animated cartoons, movies, and merchandising.

The character’s popularity spread to the world after being featured on The Ed Sullivan Show in the US.

Forget about all the bad things that happened today
Remember all the nice ones
Forget all the nasty stuff people had to say
Just think of all the fun
Remember the times when you did a good deed
Forget all the wrongs and rights
Tuck yourself for a long night’s sleep
Just bidding you a sweet good night.

~~October 7, 2014~~

Stamatis Spanoudakis (born December 11, 1948 in Athens, Greece) is a modern Greek classical composer. Early on he studied classical guitar. He went through a rock music phase, but then continued classical studies at the Würzburg State Conservatory with Bertold Hummel and later in Athens with Konstantinos Kydoniatis. Later on he studied Byzantine music.

MSoul

Stamatis Spanoudakis is widely regarded as the most prolific Greek composer of his age. Versatile in his music for film, television, records and concerts, he uses a rich and original musical palette that conjures up different perceptions in the sphere of musical imagery.

He explores both tragic and dramatic experiences with an eye and an ear for the musical representation of the perennial dilemmas and joys faced by mankind both in the past and present. To date, Stamatis has written concert works for rock groups, string orchestra, soloists and chorus. Future plans include compositions for wind, brass, tympani and percussion, adding to his fulsome output.

Concerts, including those at the George Enescu Hall (Bucharest), the Royal Albert Hall (London), and Beijin in China have proven his international reputation and set the seal on this remarkable artist’s achievement in bringing his unique brand of Greek music to the widest possible audience.

The “Make ‘SMART’ Cool” movement (SMART is an acronym for “Sophisticating Millions And Revolutionizing Thought“) attempts to “promote intelligence to everyone, everywhere and integrate it with hip-hop.

To create and nurture, without discrimination or preference, a community of free-thinking individuals under the singular purpose of promoting the ideals of education, intelligence, unity and creativity throughout the world at large.”

Meryl Streep …. Happy birthday!!


~~June 22, 2014~~ 

Meryl Streep (born Mary Louise Streep; June 22, 1949) is an American actress of theater, film and television.

She is widely regarded as one of the greatest actresses of all time.

Streep made her professional stage debut in The Playboy of Seville (1971), before her screen debut in the television movie The Deadliest Season (1977). In that same year, she made her film debut in Julia (1977). Both critical and commercial success came quickly with roles in The Deer Hunter (1978) and Kramer vs. Kramer (1979), the first of which brought her an Academy Award nomination, and the second, her first win, for Best Supporting Actress. She later won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her roles in Sophie’s Choice (1982) and The Iron Lady (2011). With 18 Academy Award nominations in 35 years, Streep holds the record as being the most nominated actor (male or female) in history.

Streep has also received 28 Golden Globe nominations, winning eight, more nominations and more competitive (non-honorary) wins than any other actor (male or female) in history. Her work has also earned her two Emmy Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, a Cannes Film Festival award, five New York Film Critics Circle Awards, two BAFTA awards, two Australian Film Institute awards, five Grammy Award nominations, and a Tony Award nomination, among several others.

She was awarded the AFI Life Achievement Award in 2004 and the Kennedy Center Honor in 2011 for her contribution to American culture through performing arts, the youngest actor in each award’s history.

President Barack Obama awarded her the 2010 National Medal of Arts. In 2003, the government of France made her a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters.

~~Accents and dialects~~

Streep is well known for her ability to imitate a wide range of accents, from Danish in Out of Africa (1985) to English Received pronunciation in Plenty (also 1985), The French Lieutenant’s Woman (1981) and The Iron Lady (2011); from Italian in The Bridges of Madison County (1995) to a Minnesota accent in A Prairie Home Companion (2006) and from Irish-American in Ironweed to a heavy Bronx accent in Doubt. After A Cry in the Dark (1988), critics were impressed with Streep’s ability to master an Australian accent with shades of New Zealand English. For her role in the film Sophie’s Choice (1982), she spoke both English and German with a Polish accent, as well as Polish itself. In The Iron Lady, she reproduced the vocal style of Margaret Thatcher from the time before she became Britain’s Prime Minister, and after she had taken elocution lessons to change her pitch, pronunciation and delivery.

Despite the accolades accorded to her, Streep has emphasized that adopting accents is an element she simply considers an obvious part of creating a character. When asked whether accents helped her get into character, she responded, “I’m always baffled by this question … How could I play that part and talk like me?” When questioned in Belfast as to how she reproduces different accents, Streep replied, “I listen” – in a dead-on Ulster accent.

Her Oscars were awarded for her performances in Sophie’s Choice (Best Actress), Kramer vs. Kramer (Best Supporting Actress), and The Iron Lady (Best Actress).

Streep also received the National Medal of Arts from President Obama in 2010 and the Kennedy Center Honor for her contribution to American culture through the performing arts in 2011, the youngest actor to be honored. She is also a prominent advocate of women’s rights and a supporter the National Women’s History Museum and the effort to build a museum dedicated to honoring women’s diverse experiences and achievements on the National Mall in Washington, DC.

What is your favorite Meryl Streep film?

After going through the long list above, there are so many movies and so many roles that she has interpreted. There is a wide array of variety, different topics and roles. Topics have ranged from historical, political, educational, biographical. Some have been deep and complicated roles. Others lighthearted and funny.

I have seen many of them and I have enjoyed all of her movies. 

There are some that I will make the time to watch. 

It’s hard to say which is my favorite. If the way to gauge which one is my favorite one, I would have to say it is MAMMA MIA!

I’ve lost count of how many times I have seen it.

LOVE YOU MERYL! HAPPY BIRTHDAY … AND MANY MORE!! 

We ALL are ONE!!

A tribute to Mickey Rooney ….. may he rest in peace!!


~~April 7, 2014~~ 

Mickey Rooney (born Joseph Yule, Jr.; September 23, 1920 – April 6, 2014) was an American film actor and entertainer whose film, television, and stage appearances spanned nearly his entire lifetime.

He received multiple awards, including a Juvenile Academy Award, an Honorary Academy Award, two Golden Globes and an Emmy Award. Working as a performer since he was a child, he was a superstar as a teenager for the films in which he played Andy Hardy, and he had one of the longest careers of any actor, spanning 92 years actively making films in ten decades, from the 1920’s to the 2010’s. For a younger generation of fans, he gained international fame for his leading role as Henry Dailey in The Family Channel‘s The Adventures of the Black Stallion.

Until his death in April 2014, Rooney was one of the last surviving stars who worked in the silent film era. He was also the last surviving cast member of several films in which he appeared during the 1930’s and 1940’s.

~~Early life~~

Rooney was born Joseph Yule, Jr. in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. His father, Joe Yule (born Ninnian Joseph Ewell), was from GlasgowScotland, and his mother, Nellie W. (née Carter), was from Kansas City,Missouri. Both of his parents were in vaudeville, appearing in a Brooklyn production of A Gaiety Girl when Joseph, Jr. was born. He began performing at the age of 17 months as part of his parents’ routine, wearing a specially tailored tuxedo.

When he was fourteen months old, unknown to everyone, he crawled onstage wearing overalls and a little harmonica around his neck. He sneezed and his father, Joe Sr., grabbed him up, introducing him to the audience as Sonny Yule. He felt the spotlight on him and described it as his mother’s womb. From that moment on, the stage was his home.

While Joe Sr. was traveling, Joe Jr. and his mother moved from Brooklyn to Kansas City to live with his aunt. While his mother was reading the entertainment newspaper, Nellie was interested in getting Hal Roach to approach her son to participate in the Our Gang series in Hollywood. Roach offered $5 a day to Joe, Jr., while the other young stars were paid five times more.

As he was getting bit parts in films, he was working with other established film stars such as Joel McCreaColleen MooreClark GableDouglas Fairbanks, Jr., and Jean Harlow. While selling newspapers around the corner, he also entered into Hollywood Professional School, where he went to school with dozens of unfamiliar students such as: Joseph A. WapnerNanette FabrayJudy GarlandLana Turner, among many others, and later Hollywood High School, where he graduated in 1938.

~~Obituary~~

Actor Mickey Rooney, one of Hollywood’s brightest stars in the 1930’s and 1940’s, died Sunday in California, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office said. He was 93.

The diminutive 5-foot, 2-inch Rooney began his acting career shortly after his first birthday, appearing on vaudeville stages with his parents. 

He became a star in the 1920’s when he began appearing in dozens of shorts based on the popular “Mickey McGuire” comic strip, but he shot into Hollywood’s stratosphere in his next film series, starting in more than a dozen “Andy Hardy” films between 1937 and 1946.

Rooney also starred as half of one of the most famous screen partnerships in film history, teaming with actress Judy Garland in a number of the “Andy Hardy” films. He also starred with her in several Busby Berkeley musicals, including 1940’s “Strike up the Band” and “Babes on Broadway” a year later.

From 1939 through 1941, Rooney was the No. 1 box office draw in the United States. He earned an Oscar nomination for his role in the World War II film “The Bold and the Brave” in 1956.

Rooney’s personal life generated almost as much talk as his film career. He walked down the aisle eight times. His first wife was starlet Ava Gardner.

Rooney became a spokesman against elder abuse

Rooney’s financial struggles in his final years came to national attention when he asked a Los Angeles court to appoint a conservator to protect him from his stepson and stepdaughter.

He also took his case to Congress, delivering emotional testimony to a House committee in March 2011 in which he said family members took control of his life, making him “scared, disappointed, yes, and angry.”

Rooney made his audience laugh and cry when he implored senators to stop what experts call chronic emotional, physical, sexual and financial abuse of elderly Americans by family members and other caregivers.

“For years, I suffered silently. I didn’t want to tell anybody. I couldn’t muster the courage, and you have to have courage,” Rooney told Congress. “I needed help, and I knew I needed it. Even when I tried to speak up, I was told to shut up and be quiet.”

Rooney called on Congress to make elder abuse a specific crime. “I’m asking you to stop this elderly abuse. I mean to stop it. Now. Not tomorrow, not next month but now,” he shouted from the witness table.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz appointed attorney Michael Augustine as Rooney’s permanent conservator that month. Augustine immediately began seeking entertainment gigs for the aging performer, telling CNN that he had to revive his show business career quickly or would die “in very short order.”

“He’s available, he’s marketable, and we’re going to get him working,” Augustine said.

“Mr. Rooney’s parents put him on the vaudeville stage when he was 17 months old,” Augustine said in 2011. “Mr. Rooney has had an 88-year career. If Mr. Rooney were to not work, I think we would be attending Mr. Rooney’s funeral in very short order. It’s part of his fiber. He loves it. He is a showman.”

Another urgent reason to get work for Rooney was that he needed money, Augustine said. Once the highest-paid actor in Hollywood, Rooney’s bank accounts were depleted by his 90th birthday, he said.
