From Ukulele to Acoustic Guitar?

I am actually thinking of buying an Acoustic Guitar… probably just a cheap one for the time being, not like the expensive ones.

It’s not that I don’t like the ukulele, I actually love it to bits. But the thing is, there are just some songs that don’t sound good on the Ukulele… like the “Huling El Bimbo”. It’s such a good song, but I personally believe that the song should be played a little more hauntingly. The ukulele makes any song seem so light-hearted, so it does not go quite well for a song like “Huling El Bimbo”.

Anyway, I actually tried playing my college bestfriend’s Classical Guitar before… I sucked at it. Hahaha! But I am willing to do it now. Call me trying to find my musical talent, since I suck at singing.

It’s going to be while before I can buy an Acoustic Guitar. Hopefully I can make a video of me playing it, although I haven’t actually made a video of me playing Ukulele yet. ~_~

hibaRaks!!!

Oh, greatness… thy name is Hiba! XD

Yep, this girl is proof that you can still be an awesome bellydancer even though you’re fluffy (unlike me, who keeps visiting weightlossdietpills.net to find out how I can lose weight).

She’s no Rachel Brice… but damn! She’s good. I just hope I had her confidence when dancing. XD

I can never seem to get rid of my confidence issues. I don’t know, it’s probably just me. I guess I’m not really too cool with letting my jiggly bits wobble.

But Hiba… man, she’s just really awesome! Her dancing is great, her hair is great, and her costume is awesome.

I wonder what decade will I be able to be like that? ~_~

What if Mark Callaway died?

Related to my previous post on Eddie Guerrero…

It made me realize something… what if Mark Callaway (The real name of The Undertaker)… you know, dies…?

And don’t give me the kind of jokes that he would rise up from the dead or something just because of his in-ring persona. ~_~

I mean, yeah… technically (meaning in the ring) that’s basically what he does. But there is this fact that Mark Callaway is altogether human. He gets injured, he bleeds and he grows old. Lately, his age is showing up in his form, but he still kicks a$$ though. XD

I mean, look at Ric Flair. The man is a legend. The man is awesome. And yet the man grew old and had to retire. And WWE never became the same after that. I get the feeling that should Taker retire (or die… which I hope doesn’t happen anytime soon… I adore him so much ~_~), there would be a lot of crying fans, a lot of sad fans… me included.

Actually, the way I see it, even though Taker is still performing strongly, I think he should be inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame already. I mean, the guy made A LOT of unforgettable matches, he invented several stipulation matches (Hell In A Cell, Casket Match, Buried Alive, etc), and is quite a superstar in his own right. He CHANGED the face of WWE, man! And yet he is still not considered a Hall of Famer. ~_~

Maybe this is something I should write to WWE about… “Please Consider Mark Callaway aka The Undertaker As A WWE Hall Of Fame Inductee”. It’s quite a mouthful, but it works. XD

Of my 45-things-to-do-before-I-die list…

A couple of years ago, during my really, really despressing days as a unemployed lady (XD), I watched Mandy Moore’s movie “A Walk to Remember”. And I really didn’t care much about the movie (sorry, not much into romantic movies), but there is, however, one thing that I remembered.

The girl had a list, a rather short list, of things she wanted to do before she died. And in the movie, the couple did as much of the things on her list before she really died of leukemia. And it made me think. I don’t think that only dying people should have a list like this. Eveybody should have one. It’s one way to know your true goals, and to enjoy your life to the fullest.

So I made this list and posted in my previous Blog (read “It’s My Mouth And I’ll Say Anything I Want With It” from the links). It’s been only about 2 years since I posted this, but still… STILL only a few things have been checked.

I’m posting this here as a review of sorts… so that I can see which ones I still miss and need to achieve… XD
