Diary of a Fangirl: 50 Shades More

Apparently, director Gus Van Sant filmed a scene of Ana losing her virginity to Christian Grey (utilizing Alex Pettyfer as Christian) in his attempt to bid for the director of the film.

I don't know who the hell is in the running, but I think Sant would be a good choice, and would handle the film with both care and respect, and make it into something awesome.

Other directors I wouldn't mind seeing at the helm of this film in the hopes of vastly improving the story (or rather, the way it's told):

Ang Lee
Sam Mendes
Steve McQueen

Speaking of McQueen...please let this film star Michael Fassbender.  Omg...

I've thought about this, and it would be a horrible misstep if they don't cast this brilliant actor and beautiful and sexy man.

As for the leading lady...I'm hearing a lot of names being thrown around, but it's making me yawn.  Here's my pic:

Yep--Vanessa Lee Chester.  Blame it on Deception or Scandal if you want, or say it's cause I'm black, but hey, that's what I want to see.  Let's face it folks--interracial on TV (and soon film, hopefully) is what's up.

Diary of a Fangirl: New Season of X Factor

So, for the upcoming season of X Factor, they axed Khloe Kardashian (who I enjoy...just not live on that show, I guess), kept Mario Lopez, got rid of Britney Spears, and L.A. Reid left to pursue other...stuff.

Let me say this: If they have a kick ass third judge, they really don't need a fourth.  And who did I have in mind for the fourth judge?  And I've been thinking about this for over a year, let me tell you...


P. Diddy.

Puff Daddy.

Diddy Dirty Money.

Whatever the hell he's calling himself these days.

Combs would not only be brilliant and entertaining, and not only does he know the talent and the business, but it would be an ultimate throwback to the days of Making the Band, and back when I gave a crap about MTV (not much, but a little).  With Diddy...yeah, who cares about a fourth judge?  A fourth just wouldn't be necessary.

Well wait--there are four different groups, so a fourth judge is needed...hmm...

Why not Toni Braxton?

Diary of a Fangirl: Jurassic Park 3D

I'm not a big 3D film person.  In fact, I utterly detest it.

Including "Jurassic Park" (and excluding virtual theme rides), I've only seen "Hugo" and "Avatar" in 3D.  I didn't feel it was necessary for "Hugo," and felt like I was in one of those video games at the arcade where you wear one of those helmets in "Avatar," but with "Jurassic Park..."

OMG, you guys, I LOVED EET!

I thought about as to why this might be, and the reason was in Spielberg's genius technology.  It's not the CGI of today folks, and making that film into 3D just enhanced the wonderful, beautiful and magnificently perfect film that it is (forget the sequels--they're...okay, but nothing to really write home about).  I got to see the cracks and crevices and ridges of those magnificent dinosaurs.  It made the film even more alive to me.  And I cannot tell you how happy I am that it was made in 1993 as opposed to today.  Spielberg, you mad genius...

I hope like hell he's at the helm for "Jurassic Park 4."

Diary of a Fangirl: Meeting Shark Tank's Daymond John

Today's guest post is from Lauren:

I met him at the Austin Convention Center at a Real Estate Convention.... I am a new home sales associate for Meritage Homes (Green Builder) AND I have an app Start-up, CatFoster Media... Coincidentally the game developers conference was right next door.... My App company was at the forefront of my mind when I was feeling down because I can't afford to do it full time yet. I really love selling homes, but I really love apps, I just want more time to do both.

Today I was feeling down and I was cursing the heavens. Being an entrepreneur is hard and some days I truly want to run off to India. Then, by chance, I ran into one of my favorite Sharks from by favorite show, Shark Tank and it lifted my spirits and made me realize that it's not always a high, you hit the lows and you have to ride them out with optimism!
