Youtube Obsession???

youtube 

I can spend hours and hours on youtube.com  There are so much variety that you can search anything and there is bound to be a video come up about it. 

Last night, I was looking for a video to show me how to do my little girls hair with a “poof” up front. You know, kinda like the 60’s and I found pursebuzz. This girl goes step by step and shows you how to create that supermodel hair and a more sophisticated ponytail for those of us who are no longer 8 and all this is acheived with her trusty rattail comb.  She also shows you how to apply makeup (Mac seems to be her favorite) to acheive different looks.

She also has a website where you can watch he rtutorial videos, www.pursebuzz.com

I also spend so much time just watching fan videos of the best show ever “The OC.”

I can’t help it.  Call it an unhealthy obsession, but I need my Ryan Atwood  and my Ryan/Marissa fix!!!  I love the early episodes when they first get together and he seems so smitten with her.   But, then again, the Ryan in the final episodes sure did buff up (Purrrrrrr.) 

Watching Seth/Summer together almost gets me choked up at times.  My favorite will always be Ryan/Marissa though. You have to search youtube for “Ryan Atwood Hot” and you will find a fan video to  Ok Go’s “Your So Damn Hot” and also look for “Candyman” by Christina Aguillera.    A definite for any Ben fan!

I need to paint my little girls bedroom this weekend,

wonder if there are any how to’s on that????

 Bangs Are Hot!

Boy bangs seem the thing these days and ever since “High School Musical’s” Zac Efron graced the covers of Rolling Stone to appear sexy to the older girls, I would bet money that the teen age boys and 20 somethings will embrace this fad too!

*My daughter and her friends were heart broke to learn that Zac was 19 and they are 7, LOL!

 BEN NEWS!

After his stint on the teen drama series The O.C., Benjamin McKenzie has been preoccupied with several film projects.  His latest endeavour involves playing the lead role in the remake of Johnny Got His Gun, a 1971 anti-war film based on the classic 1939 novel of the same name.
 

Slated for release in 2008, Johnny Got His Gun explores individual morality and the interplay between science, medicine, religion and politics.  It revolves around Joe Bonham, played by McKenzie, as a young American soldier hit by an artillery shell on the last day of the First World War.  As a quadruple amputee who has lost his eyes, ears, mouth and nose, he lies in a hospital bed but remains conscious and is able to reason.  He struggles to communicate to his to his doctors his wish to be put in a show in a carnival as a demonstration of the horrors of war.

Although the 28-year-old actor has played various roles in the past, this is his first time to tap into this type of character that explores strong anti-war, pro euthanasia and anarchist themes.

Aside from playing Ryan Atwood on The O.C., he has also made several guest appearances on television shows like JAG, The District and Mad TV.   On the big screen, he has acquired roles in the comedy drama Junebug and the 2007 crime drama thriller 88 Minutes, alongside Al Pacino. **Well, this may be a career advancing opportunity for him, but Ben as a quadruple amputee?I’d have have an intact brooding hottie anyday!
