I always knew the zombies were attracted to sound and the smell of the living. What I didn't realize is that they were drawn to light, like moths to a flame. :-) Or was it the sound of the fire. I guess I will have to brush up on my zombie survival lore. Still the show is great fun. Not having read the graphic novels every episode is a new adventure for me.

Yeah, I think zombies are supposed to be drawn to the light, the movement of flames and sound. I guess anything out of the ordinary that stimulates their very limited brain stems.

I remember the charred zombies that had wandered into that house that Darryl and Beth set on fire a few seasons ago. And they seemed to be into the burning barn on Hershel's farm during the last stand.

Setting the lake on fire was such a cool scene.

Topic What movie have you seen the most??
Posted 18 Feb 2016 07:00

- Jaws (still watch it at least once a year, usually during Shark Week)
- Legally Blonde (this was the big thing in highschool/uni, along with Mean Girls)
- Cruel Intentions (because when I was 15, I thought Ryan Phillippe was the hottest guy ever and I loved his character in that movie)
- The Little Mermaid (like many others, it was a kid thing - on endless repeat)

Topic What is your favourite scent?
Posted 16 Feb 2016 08:52

Guerlain's Terracotta Le Parfum. This is the LE special anniversary version they came out with last year. It's now one of my all-time faves. If you like summery, beachy scents, this is really gorgeous. It's got a very solar, almost sunscreen vibe (this reminds me more of Bain de Soleil rather than the Coppertone hints of Bobbi Brown's Beach). There's some coconut, vanilla, white floral and lots of Tiare as well, so it smells like you're lying on a hot beach in Hawaii. Love.

Topic Deep frown line, anyone naturally fix it?
Posted 16 Feb 2016 07:04

You can try Dr Brandt's Needles No More topical. You can get it at Sephora. Over time it may help soften those lines by providing a temporary (non-Botox) freeze. It is not a miracle in a bottle though - no topical is (get a free sample first at any Sephora before you buy). You can also try some variation of chemical peels (or daily chemical exfoliation pads for at-home use) and be sure to keep that area of your face as hydrated as possible.

Other than Botox, nothing is really going to fix it though because every time you frown or furrow your brows, you are going to deepen and strengthen those wrinkles. Sometimes people even do this in their sleep. Your goal would be to try to keep this area of your face as relaxed as possible while awake, always wear sunglasses to prevent squinting and if you notice your 11's look stronger when you wake up, you could consider using a product called 'Frownies' (or you can use plain medical tape that's a bit stiffer) that will physically prevent you from furrowing your brow during sleep. It's not an attractive look, but if it really bothers you, it might be worth checking into.

I just looked at the trailer for this series. It look like it would appeal to people who work in meat production processing the live animals or perhaps coroners.

You definitely have to appreciate the horror genre to enjoy it, although it's actually more about relationships, humanity and ethics, and the struggle for hope in the face of fear.

However... "The Walking Dead has the highest total viewership of any series in cable television history, including its two most recent (fourth and fifth) full seasons, during which it averaged the most 18- to 49-year-old viewers of all cable or broadcast television shows. Total viewership for its season five premiere was 17.3 million, the most-watched series episode in cable history." (Wiki)

The series does pretty well when it comes to pulling in viewers. And hey, I like it and I don't even eat meat! :)

Topic Have you cheated on your man?
Posted 16 Feb 2016 03:52

I did, once (well, it was over the course of a week, while by BF was out of town). I did break up with my BF when he returned though. During our post-break-up chat, I found out was actually planning to propose. Sadly, I was totally into the other guy (turned into a major relationship, major asshole, many years wasted with him).

I also had a BF get pretty angry when he found out that I'd made out with a couple of girls while drunk at various clubs. I don't really feel like that's cheating, but I get that some people do.


Topic Nostalgic Food!
Posted 16 Feb 2016 03:38

Crepes stuffed with this sweetened ricotta filling. Also, home-made lemon meringue pie and Baked Alaska.

As for junk food, it was cotton candy (when I could get it at amusement parks and events). I was rarely allowed to have serious junk food or candy, so this was like a major treat for me. I still get excited when I'm able to snag a bag now.

I did make the mistake of reading some stuff about Negan from the comics, bit of a spoiler which I hope is not going to happen in the tv show... 😳

I know exactly the spoiler you're talking about - I watched that scene from the comics on youtube a while ago (set to tragic music). I hope it doesn't happen in the show. Having said that, I think fans will be pissed if it doesn't since it's supposed to be such an iconic scene for Negan. I'm hoping it plays out with a minor (or different) character and tweaked somehow so it's not as brutal. It's such a brutal show, but somehow I can't imagine being able to sit through that as a viewer. sad1

Speaking of Negan though, how awesome was the demise of his gang. That was another scene that left me slack-jawed during the opener! I totally thought that would have been CGI but they used actual dummy replicas. Very cool special effects efforts.

That first episode of the second-half of the season was pretty intense! During that one sequence with Jessie and her kids I literally sat there with my jaw dropped, even throughout the commercial break. Damn. Talk about a bloody Valentine's Day for Rick.

Nicotero always does such an epic job with these episodes. From the explosion to the burning lake... I totally appreciate the way these things were staged with care, without taking the easy way out by relying on CGI.

Topic All About Nails - General discussion board (Brands, trends, maintenance tips...)
Posted 30 Jan 2016 05:23

For those that aren't into nail polish or mostly wear clear top coats, if you ever want a little splurge or to switch things up, Dior's Nail Glow is really nice. It's got a glossy gel feel to it and it goes on mostly clear with just a hint of fresh pink, so the effect is pretty glowy pink nails. They look healthy and natural but with a little something extra - and it's super low maintenance.

Sometimes I'll wear this when I'm too busy for nail polish or if I've suffered a chip and need to remove my mani and quickly get out the door.

Topic Caitlyn Jenner's Debut (formerly Bruce)
Posted 12 Dec 2015 12:45



As mentioned earlier I hear excitement and respect from the transgender community about her public transition and the way she's using her celebrity platform to educate the public about transgender issues.

I agree with this. It seems like many people turned on her a bit last summer, feeling like she was doing the "Kardashian" thing of over-exposure and attention-seeking with her "I Am Cait" show and public appearances, and that it would have been better for her to just go quietly off into the sunset and enjoy life out of the spotlight.

I watched most of her reality series though and it was 95% focused on series Trans issues and her work in the LGBT community and really only 5% on superficial "Kardashian'esque" fluff like hair, makeup and drama. I actually learned a lot myself, and thought it was a really positive way to use her celebrity to raise awareness and understanding.

I don't subscribe to the channel it's shown on over here so it's blu-Ray or nothing :(

Ahhh, ok. It's on a free channel here and there are marathon re-runs all the time. I guess I'm lucky. On the plus side, no commercials for you! And really - the first season was so well done, it's well worth adding it to the Blu-ray library.

I totally bonded to the Andrea character in Season 1. I know a lot of people didn't like her as the series went on, but she's still one of my faves and probably TWD character I've most identified with throughout the series (flaws and all).

But I don't know what Enid's deal is. I thought she was supposed to be the Wolves inside man with all that "we" and "us" business with Carl as the attack kicked off a few weeks back. I was waiting for her to lure Glen into an ambush or something. Still, the angry teen thing got very old very quickly.


Yeah, I thought that too. Not totally convinced they won't drop that twist on us later though. She's so elusive and even if she'd been part of the Wolves for a while, she could have abandoned that group as easily as she abandoned Alexandria. Or maybe the teen angst is just throwing all of us off and she's just a nice kid that's been through a lot and prefers flying solo in a world of instability. And Carl likes her, so she might be destined for a real teen-love storyline with him next season, assuming he doesn't get shot by that other angry kid. Damn.. all this, and Glenn and Maggie still wanted to procreate. confused1

Now you just need a spritz of the infamous 'Secretions Magnifiques' by perfume house Etat Libre D'Orange to complete the effect.

With its (intentional) fragrance notes of blood, sweat, semen and milk, it's quite literally an olfactory horror show and pretty much could be The Walking Dead captured in a perfume bottle.

I'm so happy that Glenn is still alive. I would have been so bummed out.

However, and I have vented this to a few people already and I'm going to here. I'm so over Eugene. He is an utter useless character that is kept around for no reason. He brings nothing to the show and is only a human filler at this point. He won't man up! I really thought he was going to once he saved Tara in the last season, but nope, he is still a useless slug. I'll do a happy dance if he goes.

Anyone else agree or feel otherwise?

Yeah, I'm not a fan of Eugene. He's kind of dead weight to the other characters around him as well as the viewers. They haven't really done much with his story arc and I tend to forget he's even there at this point. Eugene and Rosita both seem expendable.

I'm guessing a lot of miscellaneous characters will get killed off during the mid-season finale (ie. the Alexandrians who haven't had much talking time) and maybe one or two semi-regulars. If Eugene gets chomped, I definitely won't miss him. :p
