Sex Sells #52

Last week we saw a commercial promoting healthy eating options (a vegetarian lifestyle) and this week we are staying in the realm of health promotions. The product is Centrum Silver vitamins. I am going to admit, I liked this advert and so did Ben. Part of me thought it was clever. I don’t know it […]

Profoundly Alone

You told me there rarely is a meaningful reason Adding that most things only last for a brief season You preached to me that life is solely about pleasure And that we can sin in haste and repent at leisure I begin to understand that your words make no sense You invented them, put them […]

SLS – Phony

Jim has picked an interesting Song Lyric Sunday theme today. I had to search for a song to fit the words he chose, and I came across a song I do vaguely remember. In the UK, one of these X-Factor type shows ran a competition to form two groups, a boy band and a girl […]

Marvin Gaye had such an incredible voice, he could melt his listeners and the pauses in between the lines…it creates such an […]

Sex Sells #51

Here in the UK, supermarket giants “Marks & Spencer” are accredited with “food porn advertising”. But it seems that they are not the only food agency who have tried to stir desire in viewers of their advertisements. Whereas M&S stay firmly on the classy side of not being too embarrassed if you are watching this […]

Why I No Longer Keep A Diary

I think a lot of us, especially girls, find the idea of keeping a diary appealing from a young age. It seemed like an incredibly romantic thing to do, only in my case, the reality was far from romantic. I have never been a regular, consistent diary keeper, but there have been times in my […]

SLS – Sports

Jim wants us to feature sports songs today. So I decided to go with ice hockey. When we were in Chicago we had so many friends massively into hockey. Ben likes all sports. He loves the atmosphere of going to a game with friends. The Chicago Blackhawks adopted a song by The Fratellis called “Chelsea […]
