While I was in school, we had to make two lamps. This was my second lamp.

Top Ten: Guitarists

Here are my top ten guitarists. Keep in mind they are not in any particular order. Also I chose these guitarists by the fact that their playing pulls me into the song, not just the vocals.

1:
Tom Morello

The guitarist from Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, Street Sweeper Social Club and his solo project, The Nightwatchman. He is an awesome guitar player. I can’t believe some of the sounds he creates with his guitar. He is a wizard.

2:
Joe Perry

Aerosmith’s guitarist gave us riffs from songs like “Walk This Way” and “Rats In The Cellar.” He’s not afraid to play fast either.

3:
Jimi Hendrix

How could I not put the god himself, Jimi Hendrix? His playing alone is legendary. He wasn’t just a great vocalist.

4:
John Frusicante

Red Hot Chili Peppers was never the same without him, due to his drug addiction, but he sobered up and they made great music once again.

5:
Andrew Stockdale

You may not know who this guy is and what band he plays for. His band is Wolfmother and they are an AWESOME Australian band. List to these two songs and tell me they don’t rock, “Joker and The Thief”, and “New Moon Rising”.

6:
Billie Joe Armstrong

Green Day’s front man and guitarist, if you don’t know already. Songs like “Basket Case” and “Welcome To Paradise” are just some examples of his shredding capabilities.

7:
Angus Young

His playing on ACDC’s, “Back In Black” and “You Shook Me All Night Long,” got me into ACDC. Course lots of other songs followed as well.

8:
Robert Krieger

His playing with The Doors was great. “Roadhouse Blues” is one of my favorite songs.

9:
Lenny Kravitz

With Jimi Hendrix dead, the universe gave us, Lenny Kravitz. I find his playing some what similar to Hendrix’s playing, just listen to “Always On The Run.”

10:
Chuck Berry

One of the founding fathers of rock and roll music, Chuck Berry, “could play a guitar just like ringing a bell,” to quote Berry in “Johnny B. Goode.”

What Is This World Coming To?

I just read this article and found it very disturbing. Apparently, a female McDonald’s employee viciously attacked a young mother in front her child. What a heartless person this McDonald’s employee was to attack a mother in front of her child? The child must have been so scared.

There was some footage of the attack and you can see many people standing around, not bothering to stop this woman. If I was there, I would have done something, so the child wouldn’t have to see their mother in pain any longer.

Top Ten: Favorite Actors/Actresses

1: Morgan Freeman

With movies like, “Lean On Me,” “The Bucket List,” and “Wanted,” how could he not be one of my favorite actors. I think “Lean On Me” was the clincher.

2: Denzel Washington

So many movies to chose from that he was in. I’m especially fond of his portrayal of Malcolm X in Spike Lee’s film.

3: Johnny Depp

He shines in every role, I believe, even if the movie isn’t that great. He is excellent when paired with Tim Burton.

4: Zooey Deshcanel

I love her. She is so cute in everything she does and I want to marry her.

5: Angelina Jolie

Amazing actress in drama and action films. She is proof that a woman can be an amazing action star just as much as a man can.

6: Jason Segal

“How I Met Your Mother,” “I Love You Man,” and “Despicable Me,” are just a few examples that make him one of my favorite actors.

7: Eddie Murphy

Comedic gold. I love “Coming To America” and “Beverly Hills Cop.” I also like his family comedies like, “Dr. Dolittle” and “Daddy Day Care.”

8: Bill Murray

Three words, “Ghostbusters,” “Groundhog Day.”

9: Bruce Willis

Great action and drama star.

10: Jack Nicholson

Some of the best films, of his, I’ve seen, “The Shinning,” “Batman,” and “As Good As It Gets.”

Top Ten: Bruce Willis Movies

1:
The Fifth Element

Probably my favorite Bruce Willis movie. Great cast, great story, great action, and funny.

2:
Die Hard With a Vengeance

I would have said the first Die Hard, but this one had Samuel L. Jackson and my cousin was even an extra in the film.

3:
Disney’s The Kid

It was a cute story and I likes the chemistry between Willis and his younger self.

4:
The Sixth Sense

No surprise here. One his best roles and M. Night’s only big hit.

5:
Look Who’s Talking

Such a cute movie and something about Willis’ voice makes Mickey even cuter.

6:
Surrogates

Not a huge hit, but I liked it. I thought it was a very creative movie.

7:
Death Becomes Her

Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn, and Bruce Willis, comedy gold.

8:
Pulp Fiction

Bruce Willis is terrific in this movie. When I quote Pulp Fiction, I’m usually quoting him.

9:
Sin City

Willis is one bad ass, good guy, in this film. Amazing work.

10:
Over The Hedge

Once again, Willis’ voice added something extra to a character.

Homemade Pudding Pops

I followed this recipe. Instead of making pudding, I bought some pudding cups from my local dollar store, along with some trail mix bags. I filled half the cups with pudding. Then I put some of the trail mix, and then filled the cup to the top with pudding. A 4-pack of pudding cups, made 4 pudding pops. They were really good. You should try them.
