Alluring eyes, sexy smile, sultry, yet classy style, extremely intriguing, with an incredible physique. The physical simulation from a desired appearance or is it mental stimulation from a simple conversation? When it comes to the attraction of the opposite sex the answer is quite simple. We as living, breathing creatures have pheromones. These pheromones can be altered with scented body lotions and perfumes. Changing our natural pheromones, creating a distinctive aroma, either attracting or repelling the opposite sex. As a perfume connoisseur, I have discovered a perfume that works with each user’s pheromones, creating a desirable scent mixed within its notes. “CREED” has been around for over 200 years and can be found exclusively at Neimen Marcus or on their website: http://www.creedboutique.com/?gclid=CK76wvy40a0CFeQbQgodbSgNlA Alluring, fresh, one of a kind fragrances for men and women. CREED has a variety of scents that will drive your senses wild.

A D E L E She is only 23 years old and already being called the next Aretha Franklin. Just don’t tell her that. She is flattered by the comment, but still thinks she is a way off from the great Aretha. Her vocals tell us differently. She has an amazing soul power in her voice that sucks you in immediately. Her song “Rolling in the Deep” has sold over 5.6 million digital copies in a single year. That’s the most digital copies of a song sold in a year to date. Her album “21” has also held the number one spot longer than any other album in over 10 years. The album “21” is mainly about curing broken hearts. Her songs are made to be sad, but a few are quite uplifting, and have a lot of power behind them. “Set Fire to the Rain” was recorded by her just a few hours after a break up with a boyfriend. We can relate to her songs, because we have all suffered from a broken heart.
Adele has been making public announcements that her next al-
bum will definitely be more upbeat than this one. It may be a while though. Adele just recently had surgery on her vocal cords last October to correct a vocal cord hemorrhage. This is when your capillaries rupture and blood coats the vocal cords. When this happens it can prevent them from vibrating as well as they should. Hemorrhages are caused by over use of voice or straining. As much singing as this girl has been doing lately and all of the interviews she has to keep tabs on, I am sure my voice would be over worked too. - Article by: Deedra Fritsch
Miss February Tanah
anah is our special kind of crazy, she has some of the most nutty comments on her Facebook page. Just to see who will respond. Tanah has appeared in some television ads, does her own styling on many shoots and works a full time job! This Blonde Bomb Shell has many crazy talents: one of them is a special move. We can only describe this as the T-Move. “Naked, Upside down, on your FACE!!” We have seen Tanah on DvD’s, TV, Print and Digital. What type of model is Tanah? “I don’t have a genre that I fit into as a model. My only goal is to create unique work, and I’ll keep doing so as long as I can.” With Facebook being a main outlet for her funny quotes, and quips, we had to know… Is there a method to this madness, why do you post random stuff all the time? “I love doing fun quotes and being crazy on FB it’s all about figuring out what people will say and ask you to do when they think anything flies.” We wanted to know, what is the craziest thing someone has asked you to do? “I’ve been asked to sit on a toilet with a chicken mask on my head and take photos. That was my absolute favorite because it reached a level of new ridiculousness that even surprised me. I didn’t do it. I don’t think I’m talented enough to pull off the look and emotion needed!” So tell us then, what is the craziest thing you have done, you look back at and laugh. We hope it starts off as, this one time at band camp!! “ Well, I did this once in high-school, I had to dress as the Hamburglar and dance on the side
of the road to attract customers. I would shove french fries in my giant hamburger head and try to catch them with my mouth on my breaks then go back out. I was sworn to secrecy by Grimace! I do think being a little crazy is sexy, lacking a personality will not save a pretty face. Any girl can go to the bars and dance, but not many can do a running front flip across the dance floor and land directly on your face all while wearing heels. That’s crazy fun and sexy!”

There is very little doubt that Star Wars is one of the most recognized brands in the world. It crosses all borders, races and religions. It was one of those brands we knew would have to be made into a modern MMO, and no we are not talking Star Wars Galaxies. Let’s review what happened to that, “Star Wars MMO” SWG which opened on June 2003 shut most of the servers down in October 2009.
What you get with this MMO you do not get with anything else.
Just 6 short years after its launch. On June 24, 2011, SOE announced that Star Wars Galaxies would be shutting down. The date announced for this was December 15, 2011. According to the announcement, both LucasArts and SOE came to the agreement. “If you are an active subscriber in good standing as of September 15, 2011, then you can play for free for the final months. Players wishing to play through the end of the game and participate in the galaxy-ending event planned for the last week of live service in December will need to re-activate or join the game on or before September 15th. No new or reactivated accounts will be accepted after September 15, 2011.”
However, some “Aliens” speak the same language, “Hutta” I swear it’s the same sound clip, over and over... Minor detail, but yeah...those are the facts.
Let’s now talk about the movies, Star Wars, whose total revenue worldwide gross is $551,426,345. This does not include profits outside of box office sales. (Outside sales are expected to be in the billions!) We all knew that with the slow death of SWG, they had a brand which could make money over and over. It was a no brainer, to capitalize on a brand and make it right. This is where BIOWARE stepped up to the plate to make a MMO game which cost them over $150,000,000 to make. That MMO is Star Wars the OLD Republic. In timeline sense, this game takes place thousands of years before the days Luke walked Tatooine. So, with all the familiar names removed what do you get???

THIRD PERSON VIEW MULTIPLE CLASSES QUESTS RAIDS 4 PLAYER GROUPS PVP MOUNTS PETS (COMPANIONS) NON COMBAT PETS (DRIODS ETC) YOUR OWN STARSHIP * 4 MAIN CLASSES, WITH 8 VARIANTS CALLED ADVANCED CLASSES
Voice Acting on EVERY Single Quest line… that’s right, everyone talks… the voice acting is very good, and done by some famous actors like Jennifer Hale and Rachel Leigh Cook. (full list found here) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1320395/ fullcredits#cast
Lets break this down…
I have a level 50 Sith, and now a level 50 Jedi. (Yeah, I am a Nerd) Leveling solo is pretty easy because you have a “companion” with you at all times and you are never alone. The game feels like you are grouped up with someone at all times. At the time of writing this, the graphics engine in the game has some problems; it has random bog downs, due to graphical glitches and rendering problems. The PvP is not balanced, and with the 1.0 release, there are no tiers. SWTOR does not have great guild functionality either, besides from an extra chat window, called “guild” there is not much to it. No Banks, no player housing, no nothing. Just a list of who else carries the guild tag. Space Flight… do you remember FIREFOX? That is what it is, you don’t actually “FLY” the ship, you don’t move it at all… besides from side to side in a third person view, and oh yeah you do get a “barrel roll”. It is a rail system which takes you on a pre-determined path, with pre-determined NPC’s which always show up at the same spot. You can do 1-50 and never do a single space mission, which I am wondering if that is a blessing or not at this point. They boast over 15+ planets to visit, however truth is it’s just “zones” in MMO Speak, small areas in which to do quests. 1-10 is one planet, 15-20 is another so on and so on… SWTOR has a lot of promise, however it’s just that: a promise. They do promise more guild functionality, hints at a new space combat system, and maybe putting tiers in the PvP system, but they are now playing catch up…
Let’s talk about the game your probably already know… World of Warcraft. You may not realize it, but Blizzard makes about a billion in cold cash a year, and they are still going strong after 10 years… with over 1.5 million players, they have a new expansion coming out, and plan on putting out another MMO in the next two years.

THIRD PERSON VIEW 10 INDIVIDUAL CLASSES QUESTS RAIDS 5 PLAYER GROUPS PVP MOUNTS FLYING MOUNTS ONE CLASS GETS A PET (HUNTER) NON COMBAT PETS
Let’s face it, World of Warcraft is a standard of which all MMO’s strive to achieve now… be a hater if you want, Blizzard is King of the MMO Makers and they have dominated this market by listening to the players and bending, not breaking the direction and storyline they drive. Quests are prominent but let’s face it who reads them anymore? World Of Warcraft has perfected in many aspects what SWTOR is going for. Arguably, a good crafting system, excellent Auction House system, *(Battle Net?)* hello….
The only reason why you would not play WoW is because you don’t like MMOs, can’t afford it, or you’ve already done it before. Lets break this down…
With the release of the latest patch of WoW you can cross server raid, pvp and pretty much make it a one world server community (within the battlegroups). World of Warcraft has seasonal achievements, quest lines and rewards based on the time of day, month and locations. They have a traveling faire, which has mini games within mini games.
LET’S get real…World of Warcraft 1.0 is no MATCH for SWTOR 1.0. World of Warcraft is 10 years of polished game which only a few Warcraft series gamers followed. SWTOR is improving, and improving fast. They have a team which is bug stomping, another which is creating content, yet another which is doing R&D to make the SWTOR universe expand… If we could fast forward in 10 years would I think SWTOR is a better MMO? Heck yeah, they have spent over $100M on the darn thing you can bet they are gonna keep this baby rolling for at least 6 years. SWTOR only has a few additions to make to get this rolling, and you can always make “new” planets, new races and maybe even a new class somewhere along the lines. World of Warcraft is over the hump of its life span with Cataclysm. They still have stories to tell, with the old gods, and yeah the Pandarens, but besides from Jack Black NOT being the voice, they claim that is where the references stop… and to be honest, the drunken panda was around long before the Kung-Fu Panda movie…also Blizzard has turned a MMO into a world wide party every release… that’s crazy still. SWTOR has a destiny, we all know Alderaan is going to be blasted into dust… we all know Vader is the baby daddy of Luke, (oh wait I hope you knew that.) But that’s like 90 expansion packs from now… If you want a MMO which you can enjoy with no bugs, that’s balanced, and ready to give you hours of go-go time, then WoW still has it… Play SWTOR if you’re just a Star Wars fan, however if you’re a gamer, then give it a year and an expansion, because they are still fighting the Darkside when it comes to bugs and balance. Let’s hope they do find that inner Jedi and get those guild and game features in before Diablo III hits, because I think WoW and SWTOR will both suffer a big loss in membership when the free to play Diablo III hits the market.
Yet that’s still in a Galaxy Far Far Away ;)

Tips for a BAMF Valentine
1 2 3 4 5 28
“Perfume” Start the day off with a little extra self-pampering! Consider a floral body wash and body splash to instantly add romance to the day. Try scent layering with your favorite perfume. Everyone wants a custom scent these days. Some scents to consider: Ralph Lauren Romance, Chloe Narcisse , & Jessica McClintock.
“The Secret Power” of matching bra and panties can really put some pep in your step and make you really feel like a BAMF girl! Just ask our Center Fold Tanah! “Nothing says, I am getting lucky more than see through!” Red Hot Lips! No brainer! If you don’t like red, try a pink or peach colored gloss for soft kissable Valentine’s lips. Show some leg, or draw attention to your legs with some trendy tights and/or sexy heels. If you are feeling daring, thigh highs will be hotter if you end up naked in front of your Valentine. If your legs aren’t your best feature, see tip #2, a sexy push up bra should grab your Valentine’s attention. Dress to Kill! An eye catching dress should catch your Valentine’s attention immediately! Short or long, but fill that dress out like a BAMF girl! Here’s some ideas from JealousyJane Couture. BAMF
I am a serial dater.
I have observed those just entering the dating game, those who donâ€™t have a clue how to go about even asking for a date and those who have sabotaged all chances of getting a date. I have made it a personal goal to help as many people as possible with my article! 30
BAMF Feature Model:
1. Establish a long term or short term goal that you want dating to accomplish: We all have different reasons why we date… Whatever the reason, you should know why you are going to date so you don’t waste anyone’s time. You don’t go to the grocery store without some kind of idea of what you are going to buy, right? 2. Always keep an open mind, agenda and schedule: When you are dating, things will always change. Don’t ever go on a first date expecting that person is going to be the love of your life. When you are dating your objective, desire, and perspective can change like everything in else is life. Don’t limit yourself to a certain way of thinking and always keep your agenda and schedule open to change and possibility. 3. Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not just to impress others: Yes, be charming. Yes, be courteous and respectful. Yes, please, for the love of god, compliment the woman you are dating even if you don’t think her sweater is nice, but don’t pretend to like something just to impress someone else. The truth will come out eventually about who you really are. You can only trick someone for so long. 4. A little effort goes a long, long way: The best way to impress someone isn’t lying about what interests you, or even being a version of whatever you think the other person would like. The best way to impress someone is to put in just a little bit more effort than normal. Make the other person feel like they are the most important person in the world at that moment. Simple gestures go a long way! 5. Be respectful: Most people automatically use please, thank you, and all other manners that your mother preached to you about using. While those are important, they aren’t nearly as important or relevant as the following: DO NOT under ANY circumstances: check Facebook, use extreme profanity, answer text messages or calls. The person you are dating took time out of their schedule to get to know you. 6. Don’t spend too much time on the past, family drama, or issues: One of the biggest mistakes people do when trying to get to know someone new is by bringing up issues they had with their exes. Don’t talk about it like it’s criteria for what not to do in the future. It was a learning experience. Family drama should stay in the family and all of your personal issues should stay within your family/friends. 32 BAMF February 2012
7. Talk yourself up: A date is an opportunity to put your best foot forward! You don’t go into a job interview with a piece of paper talking about all of your baggage, flaws, debt, or things that stress you out, do you? Why on earth would you do that with the person you want to pursue romantically? Everyone has skeletons in their closet! Don’t worry about it! The person in front of you sees something special in you! You are wonderful, damn it, don’t ever say otherwise! 8. Talk with your body: You may find yourself wondering if you think your date likes you. Let me tell you a secret way to find out for yourself. Use your body language to measure how good of a time your date is having or what your date is thinking. For example, make constant and steady eye contact when you speak to them. Don’t start a staring match, but make sure you look them straight in the eye when you are talking to them. Are they looking back? Are they smiling so hard their eyes are squinting a little? They are having a great time! 9. Plan the next date: Try to find similar interests during dinner or drinks so you can plan the next date. Ask your date what movies they have seen or if they like bowling, skating, or roc kclimbing… ANYTHING! Get creative! Ask them when they are free next and plan it! If they say they are pretty busy then your date isn’t interested or seriously busy. If you call them up a couple days before you next date or you don’t hear from them again…. Move on. Life is too short to be chasing people around. If someone really wants someone or something, it is never an inconvenience and they will always find a way to make it work.

T S I L HOT
ex appeal and fashion are just a few of the global style trends that are spawned daily by ridiculously wealthy celebs who seemingly have no spending budgets. How do I ball like this you ask? Well, the average person contemplates how do I stay on point in the fresh-todeath-style game on reasonable cheddar. Allow me to help you increase your style points without breaking your bank. Boom! Allow me to digress on a few no brainer ways to step your fashion, automobile, and tech swag!
Yes…everybody that can walk and talk loves cars. What do Porche, Mercedes, and Audi all have in common? Ridiculous sticker shock! Yes. Sweet rides all cost money. Duh! So when buying a new car or a new used whip you might consider swooping up a vehicle that is fresh off a lease or is a dealer loaner. Listen folks, I can promise you that money will be saved while you laugh at the A-Hole that paid double the coin for the sticker in the window! Lol! Stop and think about all the resources available to track a vehicle’s history on who has owned, crashed it(God Forbid), or simply abused the shit of the car you might want. Lastly, you can be Captain-Save-A-Car if you know some good mechanics or body shop peeps to fix a massively reduced in price car that you damn near stole(not literally) from the lot. A sleek and stylish ride can be at your fingertips with these few simple tips. Now this is HOT!
You ask how does a person rock out and look ready to mingle on a conscious dime? For starters, people that love high end boutiques and all the glitz shops can usually barely afford them. #FACT! Really? Yes! You too can look the part whether you are permanently single and looking hookup with everything that has a pulse or the conservative office type that goes home and loves life missionary style. Simply put, timing is everything when you shop smartly versus salivating over the SALE word. What am I saying by this you ask? When upper end stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Macys, and Express clean house of non-sold items it is usually when the seasons change. So this fashion backward approach might not be always cutting edge but it serves a solid wardrobe builder for the basic swagtastic items needed to be a BAMF!
Now that you have saved some coin on the needed things
like French cut jeans(Ladies), purses(Daily Items), and slacks(Dudes) you can splurge on the “IT” item to set you style right. Many retailers have gone to massive lengths to sell their stuff online. This is huge! Your favorite store is trying to sell you something so why not surf the web and flip thru the pages of our virtual world to find your next pair of jeans! Note to dumbass consumers..know your size and measurements so you don’t buy something that’s tough to return! Saving money, looking tight, and not shopping at TJ Maxx. Priceless! Now this is HOT!
I barely know where to begin with this topic. So I will focus on the Club DJ and get right to the point. Headphones! So my last headphone experience almost sobered me up from all the Patron I consumed the night before. These damn things go from a cool hundo up to like five hundred bucks. I wish I wasn’t serious. The first question you need to ask yourself is what the F#^k am I going to do with these things. Do you spin clubs? Are you a studio musician or a producer? Upon being honest with yourself you will find it is easy to set a budget based on use of “Cans” versus cost or Brand. For instance, if you are a “SERIOUS” studio musician you need upper end phone period! Bose, Pioneer, and other recording product companies make these for that purpose. These cost dough! So here is my point! If you primarily spin at clubs, make mix tapes, and aren’t too deep into recording the world’s next Kraftwerk single then you should never spend more than two hundred bucks for headphones. Yes I will add stay away from cheap as shit models that boast a solid frequency range but actually sound as if your underwater welding while DJing. Ask around and try out the different brands before dropping your hard earned jack on bullshit. Do yourself a solid and and try some of tech heavan’s technology of in-ear buds/phones. Man! I recently switched myself to these type of listening devices and will never go back to headphones. This of course becomes personal taste of how you want to vibe while you play. Saving money and getting the best bang for the buck is where its at in the headphone world! Now this is HOT!
Who doesn’t want to look their best! So let us get right to the point. People that actually think that looking like a jumbo bottle of Orange Bronzer is sexy need a lobotomy. I’m serious! If you like to be tan or like to appear to be tan then listen up. Do your homework on your skin tone and skin conditions before you slather a bunch of product you are unfamiliar with all over yourself. There is a chance the reject at the tanning salon sold you over priced bullshit and you might look ridiculous! So, I’m saying if this is your look then own it! Do not half ass the research when it involves your flesh suit or you will be sorry in the end! If you are the tanning bed king or queen it is imperative you learn about this word…. moisture. Yes, if you want to look like a raisin at 35 keep baking in the bed and not taking care of your skin once you exit the beauty capsule! We can all agree the world loves to see a bronzed beautiful person strutting down the beach or fashion mall. However, we make the duck face when see the young person that resembles a piece of Samsonite luggage or a saddle from True Grit. Don’t be that person. Tan safely folks! A gorgeous healthy looking bronzed soul….Now that is HOT!
Anything Pitbull The New Kanye West sans an interruption of award shows The Black Keys The Red Hot Chilli Peppers….New Album is ridiculous!

Deedra’s Top 5 Essential Things to Get the Lady for Valentines Day
1. Spa: The BAMF girl in your life deserves to be pampered. Check out the spas in your local area for an experience she won’t forget. A day at the spa can run up to $200 or more. But, at the same time for that she could get a pedicure, manicure, skin treatments, a massage, and a haircut… She would look extra sexy for your big Valentine’s dinner. 2. Chocolate: There are a lot of specialty chocolates that are sold today. Godiva has a special candy line just for Valentine’s Day, Whitman’s makes a special 2 and a half pound box year round, and Hershey’s makes a 5 pound bar. Those are just a few ideas if you are truly tired of the same heart shaped box every year. 3. Lingerie: Get her a gift card to pick up something special just for your eyes only. Almost every store that sells lingerie has special Valentine’s lingerie. She doesn’t have to pick up something made of cloth though. Many “adult stores” sell things like candy underwear and bras. Why not go the candy route on a day dedicated to candy?
5 February 2012
4. Movies: If your girlfriend likes the Star Wars series: Phantom Menace is going to be released the week before Valentine’s Day. It’s in 3-D this time around and it’s been revamped for the ultimate fans. If your girlfriend is more into chick flicks, This Means War with Reese Witherspoon comes out on Valentine’s Day. It’s the average love triangle chick flick, nothing special. 5. Dinner: Stay home, pop some wine and make an excellent meal yourself for your special BAMF girl. If you’re not into cooking, there are plenty of great restaurants downtown to make your night special. Just don’t forget to make reservations the week or so before Valentine’s Day! It’ s a big date night for a lot of couples and reservations fill up quick! - Deedra Fritsch
