lovelythunders asked: Aww, yes, it is always great to read posts like yours (on Queen of the Damned). Yes, it has the greatest soundtrack ever. I remember it was the most expensive CD I've ever bought (idk why it was expecially expensive -.-). But it was worth each and every cent! It is around 10 years old now and I still enjoy listening to it the most. Redemeer or Not meant for me. Argh. It is hilarious. Thanks for the post, I will listen to it now! c: Bless yah!
My apologies but I did not read your message sooner. Thank you for the response. Glad I could rekindle your love of QOTD soundtrack. \m/ thanks for replying I didn’t know anyone answered these. Hehe :)
wtf? so my friend send me the pic of this book cover on April Fools Day and we immediately thought Hmm wonder if it is really a book. So i googled it and thought what the fuck this IS actually a book! http://www.amazon.com/Live-Huge-Penis-Richard-Jacob/dp/1594743061
There comes a time when there is perfect clarity.
Sometimes this chaos called life just turns out in ways that twist and turn so unexpectedly that I don’t know what to make of them.
Today I had to talk to a good friend who lives miles away and with his kindness and understanding I was finally able to gain closure and clarity just by having not just listen but tell me his experiences.
Funny how a year ago I had never talked to him nor met him.
And now he is sort of like an older brother figure.
Gentle, understanding and listening to his surrogate little sis.
I found a book last week randomly of bible verses looking to help my friend but instead i picked it up, read it and it was just what i needed.
I think God wanted me to help myself first before I could help my friend.
I hate sounding selfish but I had to postpone on giving it to her bc i just wanted to read it to feel better. And this particularly stood out to me:
“Keep on loving each other as brothers and sisters. Remember to welcome strangers, because some who have done this have welcomed angels without knowing it” -Hebrews 13:1-2 NCV
I have been so fortunate to have invited some amazing friends who are like my brothers and sisters. I love them so much and wish them the best always. And if anyone gives them any crap I will have something to say.
But they are not just friends and family they are my angels looking over me. Taking care of me I can only hope to repay them back with my friendship, kindness, understanding, and an occasional gesture to remind them that they truly hold a special place in my heart and am beyond fortunate to have them in my life. How can a simple girl like me be so lucky to have welcomed such angels that understand me in my time of need.
A lot of my close friends have been gay men and I have to say they have something special that truly sets them apart from others. It’s a special kind of understanding that not many straight males have. I never thought I would have a straight male friend who would have that same sensibility. It’s an empathy towards others. It’s not fake. It’s not something that can easily be explained. Very few men have it. Very few men admit to tears. Very few straight men talk to women and actually listen without making a stupid flirtatious remark. There are a few straight men that have this quality and it’s rare. And I treasure it. I admire it.
And to my gay friends who struggle with homophobic crap. Trust me you are so much more beautiful and better than those boys who do not even know what they are saying. Because they lack maturity to truly understand that their words are based on stupid assumptions. Sometimes you need to point them out on their crap and then they get it but sometimes they don’t and it sucks but don’t waste your pretty on such people. I’m reminded of that another bible verse “forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.” i forget where it is from and if i have it written down correctly so forgive me.
I’m not an expert. Nor am trying to preach. I just wanted to share my thoughts out to the universe and say thanks. . I am blessed and wish you the same.
And one more thing I have come to realize that I thought I would share. I don’t care what people think of me. And admire who don’t care what others think of them. I think it’s a rare quality. It’s not just a confidence it’s truely a I don’t give a fuck about what you think of me. I am going to be who I am and not apologize. It’s such a brave quality that I admire about my friend. It’s not cocky. It’s more about knowing who you are and telling the world and not caring what they think because at the end of the day you know you have people who love you regardless of what you say or do. Please embrace this quality more than anything. It is inner beauty manifested as outer beauty. I’m glad my best friend has it. =) Love you kid. Knock em dead in your heels honey. Show ‘em what you’re made of and if you get looks and stares. Remember they probably aren’t surrounded by tolerance, love and acceptance. Unfortunately not all people are blessed as we are.
God bless . Much <3 Jenn
I’m watching Queen of the Damned and I had forgotten how ripped Aaliyah was. damn! she was really pretty too. and i saw a meme the other day… that said and to think if Aaliyah was still alive we wouldn’t have to listen to crap by nicki minaj rapping about Bieber’s weiner. I kid you not. google that shit if you don’t believe me. Aaliyah was far too classy to talk about that kind of crap.
Also this movie had decent soundtracks. A few alternative rock songs that bring me back. I didn’t know Lestat’s singing voice was Jonathan Davis of Korn. Interesting. I also just heard a change in the house of flies by Deftones.
and obviously anne rice vampire based movies are still better than any of the twilight crap. Not hatin’ just statin’
- Why am I still awake?
