YOUR LIFE IS THE FILM Par

How many times in your life have you heard the following phrases? “naah, that only happens in movies” “why are you living your life like you in a movie?” or the ever so classic, “..only in your wildest dreams”. A shit load right? Yeaaaah I figured. Don’t you find yourself wondering…”umm excuse me but why not again?” I mean what is the point of living life if you cannot live it like you are the lead star in your own movie? Come on! Why should we accept that we will not be able to live out our dreams because of certain circumstances? Why? Why? Why? I find it very disheartening when people say “No you cannot live out your dreams because society thinks their whack” Like yooooo these are MY dreams not OURS! I believe that dreams plus smart or hard work (which ever school of thought you dig) are key factors in reaching truly successful lives. I think we need to live our lives more like we are in a film and not a soap opera. Okay let me explain the cool quote. Soap operas are super extended and rehashed ideas that are repeated a trillion times over and over again. Films thou are short and have more excitement in them then soap operas. I honestly believe that we as the future need to live out our dreams and contribute to the betterment of the world. I am not going to get all naïve and shit but I think we all can at least improve the world some way or another through our dreams. You dream about being the best porn star ever? Go ahead and get yours. You dream about being the coolest president ever? Go ahead and get yours. You dream bout building cribs that are better than the pyramids? Go get you Pharaoh on! The world needs you to live like the super star in your own film. Play your role well and happiness and success will be you Oscar for Best Actor/Actress! “Life Is The Film” Be the best you can and let your dreams flourish. DO NOT ALLOW DREAM KILLERS TO BODY BAG YOUR DREAMS. You only die once and when you dead God is going to ask you “What did you do with the dreams I gave you?”

How Not To Dress for Summer 2010/2011 By Yves Paris Hey Miss, by the time you finish reading this some girl or some 50 000 women will have read the style guide from your favourite fashion magazine and decided to buy the “recommended items”. Now, you might be thinking of doing the same. I don’t blame you, they are put together so fresh for you and those 50 000 OTHER women. This is a super huge problem for you baby girl. The world is now going to have 50 001 women all looking alike and trust me, we guys, are watching all of this. Normally, for dudes this would be nothing but we are not living in a normal world. Are we? Nooooo baby! I am a dude and am going to be brutally honest with you. We talk about you, your friends, your clothes or the clothes you got from your friends for the party. We discuss this shit and we do not like this monotonous shit. We as men are not playing games anymore when it comes to fashion, our personal fashion or our women’s. I am not going to tell you what to wear or what trend is hot or whatever. I think the magazine you are going to buy is going to handle that department. I, as a dude that loves women who dress fresh, am going to ask you to be more careful with your fashion choices. If you like a trend or certain pieces please don’t buy the exact same thing. The worse case scenario is 50 000 other girls are going to be on the same thing. I think we all know how pissed we get when we see everybody wearing the same item that we bought. The whole thing of you and your eight friends buying the same dress has to stop. Otherwise we dudes are going to keep sleeping with all nine of you because we can’t differentiate whose who coz you all dress the same!!! Anyway, we dudes really admire a girl who will wear a gold dress and black heels to a party when all the other girls are wearing oversized shirts and leggings and ballerinas from a certain store (won’t say the name, they aren’t paying me, so no free advertising). We really do. So here is some advice from a dude. We love women who are independent and can think on their own. Trends are cool but don’t follow them blindly. The world needs women to fight against looking all the same. Okay cool, now you can go buy your magazine. Cheers. I still love you a lot though. A note to magazines or blogs or whoever thinks they have a two cents worth on fashion. When you put up these “must have” ideas please put a disclaimer somewhere on the page like on cigarette boxes. “CAUTION: Following these ideas religiously will lead to you not standing out and blending in with the crowd. Use at your own risk. Lol. SIDEBAR: There are straight men who appreciate women who dress well and are not gay. I am one of them, so don’t get any funny ideas. We can go shopping together but I am still going to admire your gifts when you not looking. Honest, aren’t I? Lol.

#DearFutureGirlfriend you really wont need a stylist because I can dress and undress you, no charges. Shoot me if I happen to the coolest fashion kid you may come across. Yeah, right now it may seem like I want to date a mannequin and dress her up. But naaah I probably be there when she dresses so we can actually discuss her outfit. I really think some men are just evil...homie you let your girl leave the crib dressed like thaaaaaat? What happened to “Baby girl I got you� So yeah maybe I might date a mannequin but it would still be freshest dressed. I care about you enough to be make sure you always kill the dressing game, no salad.

MAAAAAAAN, I WANT TO DRESS LIKE A SIBERIAN WOLF. par

Yves Paris et Lesedi Montjane You know you are going to be great when people give you stares because of your style. How about we dress up like Russian Tsars just to go eat at McDonalds. Why? Because everybody else will NOT be wearing fur coats to McDonalds. Seriously though, the world needs more people who do the simple things in life in a grand fashion.

In the Middle Ages, Kings used to seal their letters with a ring print that had their royal crest on wet wax. Can we do that with our e-mails? I am curious. Wouldn’t that be soooooo fresh? Life Your Life Like A Movie.
