Wednesday Film, Movie 0r Boxset Night: A Star Is Born with Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga

Basically Bradley Copper is a big time troubled star, who meets an aspiring singer who ends up becoming a star, but it all wrong from there.  It's great acting but I just wasn't moved maybe it was too emotional and I was tired. I'm not sure why, but it didn't resonate with me. I just found the beginning very slow and it didn't get any better. I stopped watching it when they had a duet at the concert. 

What I did find out was Lady Gaga wasn't the great singer I thought she was. She is very good but without her 'Lady Gaga' persona and the electronic music etc, she was just a good singer. I was expecting some really really good singing. But no. I still like her but doing 'Lady Gaga'. She's more or less a studio recording artist. Funny that. 

However her acting was very good. Better than most singers-turned-actresses.  

I guess if you want an emotional weepie or like a good drama with  something to cry about,  watch it. Some good films are hit or miss for me, and this was a miss for me. BUT IT WOULD BE A HIT FOR MOST.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

My London Hood - The Tate Modern

Modern Gallery make you think of the world as it is today. I just wandered around the exhibitions in the Tate modern and  seemed focused on oppression of humanity - focusing on the poverty, wars, sexuality, violence, conflict, the underdog and gritty. This was a picture that captured my imagination because it looked so modern. This is a painting by German artist Christian Schad  called Agosta, the Pigeon-Chested Man, and Rasha, the Black Dove 1929 is a large portrait-orientated oil painting of two funfair performers.  So in typically America-speak when I saw my people, I had to stop and take a picture, therefore homegirl, Rasha, the black dove is headlining my blog. In those days, I guess the only work she could get was as side-freak show but she is very beautiful, modernly so. It also made me think of what happened to all the black people or people of colour during Nazi Germ

Review of January 2018 - lost weight, socialised with others, completed my beta-read, doing my courses.

Hello everyone, Just checking in about my goals and life in general. It's all good. What went well. I took in packed lunches for at least four days a week. This was just hummus, sprouts, grated carrot sandwich. So very vegan.  I also cooked dinner a few times a night rather than eating junk food or takeaway. So a lot healthier. I finally have a social life of sorts. In my last job - it was work, home and see family on weekends. I was so drained and tired so this new job has made such a difference, that I can go out and meet people.  So I go out with some drinking mates once a week. It's a nice evening out of the house and away from social media or the internet. It's mostly small talk but its nice. I'm doing my photoshop course. That is coming along nicely, that picture is from one of my practice sessions. I'm doing a couple of writing courses which are intense. What hasn't gone well. I need to focus on having more routines, and breaking tasks
