A Brand New Show

This weekend I stumbled across a new show called Orange is the New Black. At firs i was skeptical, but gave it a shot becuase it was created by the same person that created Weeds. This is a netflix only show btw.

So I started watching it, it has Jason Biggs, Donna from That 70's show, and the chick from But I'm a Cheerleader. Plus a slew of other top name stars. So I started watching it and couldn't stop.

The situations created were hilarious at best, but understandable for women in that situation. It's a little pushed at times as if the charactes were really trying to reinforce a stereotype. But you can see past that.

The start of each epidsode shows how each main character was incarcerated. Its quit interesting. So if you feel like watching a funny show, feel free to check it out, it's only on Netflix now!!

1st Try

Okay so the first site that I am tryin to get followers at is one of my favorite places on the internet.!! It's loaded with lots of helpful information especially if you are a writer, plus you have access to a database of literary agents and publishers at your fingertips. I know there are other sites that off this as well. But it's easy to navigate. So I posted somethin about my FB page, which is MV Miles Author if your wondering. They also have a forum as well, it's where you can post your query letter, first five pages, and even your synopsis. Or just hang out and chat with other members. Take a look you won't be let down!!

Now so far this week I have managed to listen to Jane Austen's Sense and Sensiblity!! Let me tell you if she was writing the scripts for Days of our Live or One life to Live everyone would be watching them. This lady knows how to create great characters and sticky situation resulting in drama, drama, drama!!

As for my music review....I ran acoss Miss Miley Cyrus's new video "Can't be Stopped", I think is what it's calls. Wow, this is so not for children, heck it's not even fo adults. It's basically another attempt to tell us what we already know. She's going to say, do, dress, and kiss whoever and whatever she wants. Yes I said whatever. Judge for yourself, but watch out...I warned you!!

Wish me luck!!!!

The Host

I have never read the book The Host, by Stephanie Meyer, although I ave heard not so great things about it. When I first saw that it was becoming a movies I was estatic. Especially when I learned that Saoirse Ronon, the girl that played in The Lovely Bones was to be in it, I couln’t wait for the release.  Unfortunately due to life happening, I was not able to see it on the big screen, but waited till it was released on cable On demand.
At first I didn’t know what to think. It was like the move started at the end an then went forward and backwards at the same time. I felt that it was rushed at time and too vague at others. I like the fact that the alien being that was inside humans was truly beautiful and only wanted peace. And they are right we are killing the world and abusing it. So they go that message right on. I didn’t quit like that they were called Souls though, a more imaginative name could have been created. This was probably due to the fact that the book was pushed through production due to the populatrity of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Series. It was instant stardom.
The rest of the cast in the move were quite believable, but again they felt rushed in spots. Overall I would say that if you would like to watch a movie just for the heck of it, then put this one on. It might captivate you or it might not. Here’s a clip what do you think?

Time flies when your having fun....

Or so the saying goes. Happy 4th of July everyone. This year it happened to fall on a Thursday which means for most of the world it's back to work on Friday. Fun fun1

What did you do? I had a bar-b-que at my mother in law with some very interesting people. It was fun and I learned alot. One woman in attendance was alive in World War 2!! I hope I live that long.

In other news I sent my manuscript to my editor, a lovely woman out in Arizona! She's awesome and I hope her historical fiction novel is scooped up by a publisher soon.

Sorry for being super busy. It's just that things have hit warp speed. When I was a kid I would sit and complain about how slow time crawls by and now there never seems to be enough of it.

I created a facebook page if your instested in following my journey into self publishing, it's under MV Miles Author..

Now for the fun stuff!!! My movie review today was on a lovely flick entitled "Ruby Sparks" here's a clip...

If you could write a character into life, would you do so for love, knowledge, power? What would they be like? Would you go on adventures or simply stay at home?

It was a great movie and I highly recommend it!!
