The Born This Way Ball - Seoul

I'm such a negligent little monster! I was wrapped up with my procrastination, that I missed the calling of Mama Monster!

2/27/12 At 12pm Korean Time, tickets went on sale for the Born This Way Ball, and I missed out!!! So now I'm stuck in the B section, 3rd floor Side 10. in Row 16. seats 9-10 .... well I'm not that sad ...my tickets were 55,000Won a piece.

Yes I bought two tickets, one for my husband and one for me. If he doesn't get to attend than perhaps one of my lovely friends will join me... I am somewhat hurt that I wasn't able to buy standing, which would potentially provide me with access to the Monster Pit!! But than again those tickets are 125,000 Won. lol

Snubbed and Meryl and Eyerolls and Crystal closes out Black History Month

The 2012 Oscars have come to a end. THANK YOU!

I didn't watch as I'm feeling a third-party Snub, for Noomi Rapace. Noomi IS the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. My husband and I randomly watched the first of 'Millennium Trilogy' of Swedish crime thrillers and we could not get enough! Imagine our surprise, and my complete outrage at America snubbing GWDT for all awards/nominations .. and than having the nerve to recast and remake the entire film. Granted the last two Swedish films weren't as magnetic as the first (I mean c'mon such graphic intensity) ... but AGGGGHHH ... if you're gonna remake the film, why not cast with the same lead.

siighh. American Pomposity.

I'm glad the American GWDT only won for film editing at the 2012 Oscars. It's the bad karma they deserve for their selfishness.

On the other hand... finally Meryl has won another Oscar. She is Awesome!

I would list the ironies of characters played that black actors/actresses to win an Oscar. But I'm still in shock that "It's Hard Out Here For a Pimp" won an Oscar. smdh
