I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

The Aliens are coming! The Aliens are coming! Battle: LA is another take in the never ending saga and  genre of  alien invasion movies.This time it is that LA becomes the final battle ground for the fate and future of earth.

For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world -- Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world's great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It's up to a Marine staff sergeant and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they've ever encountered before. 

What's Good about the movie:

Aaron Eckhart delivers a solid performance as a Marine Staff Sergeant who just had his retirement approved and returns to the front line to help a 2nd lieutenant and his platoon regain control of LA from the aliens. Aaron was very believable and did a good job in portraying this role and you couldn't help but feel a real connection to this Sergeant who will do anything to help his platoon succeed in their mission.

The actions scenes were very engaging. There was a real sense of a serious battle between the marines and the aliens  you could not take your eyes off the screen to see what would happen next.

What's Bad about the Movie:

I felt there was not enough done to show the human story behind the marines. More could have been done to tell their story in terms of who they were,interactions with their families and what was their story and their path prior to enlisting. Even Echkhart, though his performance was solid, it was obvious that he had endured some serious wounding emotionally and mentally which should have been further developed.

Though there was speculations and assumptions about why the aliens came, this was never established through any sort of interaction, communication or analysis of these visitors.

Overall Grade: B, it was a rather enjoyable and entertaining ride.


  • Sex with an ex can be some of the hottest action in the world, how could it not? You both know exactly how to get each other going, it is like you’re doing something you know is bad for you, and yet that’s exactly why it’s so thrilling. Either way, here are some things to keep in mind when navigating these all too familiar waters.

  • Don’t feel guilty about it.
    • Just because you broke up doesn’t mean everything about that relationship sucked. If the sex was good, embrace those memories.

    • Sex writers like Susie Bright point out that great sex starts in the head—your big head, that is— so if fantasies about your ex help with your J/O sessions then let your mind wander.

    • Fantasizing about an ex during sex is okay… with limits. Studies show that lots of people fantasize about someone other than the person they’re having sex with, but if it’s something you do all the time with your current boyfriend, then that might be a red flag that you’re having a problem in your relationship. One word of advice: “Don’t yell out his name when your orgasm,” says Ruben. “It can complicate things.”

    And what if you’re actually hooking up with your ex?
    • Know yourself. If you’re still emotionally attached, don’t do it. It’ll just screw you up.

    • Know his state. It doesn’t matter how good the sex was, if he’s still in love/lust with you then don’t do it. A good lay is no excuse for screwing with someone’s emotions.

    • Enjoy it for what it is—a trick—and don’t get possessive. 

    • Have a grasp on reality. The issues why you broke up are still there, so chances are you won't fall madly in love again. Just go with the flow and don't set expectations.

    • Establish rules between the two of you so that you can enjoy the good stuff and not get wrapped up in the baggage of your old relationship.

    • Decide with your ex how you’ll answer someone who sees you two together and thinks you’re dating again. As Ruben says, "Queens gossip, and someone will find out. So you both need to agree about how you'll handle the rumors once people start talking."

    Remember that this is just sex, and sex is a good thing. So if you can have sex with your ex, either in your imagination or in real life, then you do it in a healthy way and enjoy yourself.


Run your fingers through my soul. 

For once, just once, feel exactly what I feel,

believe what I believe,

perceive as I perceive, look, experience, examine, and for once; just once, understand.
