WTF Wednesday: Me going crazy as Gaga lands in South Africa

Good morning my cherries and daggers!!

OK so my WTF Wednesday is about the fact that I almost had a mild seizure last night when I heard that Mother Monster has arrived in South Africa…

I mean I’m such a retard. How the hell was I expecting her to perform without arriving in the country first? Guess I just didn’t think about it.

Anyway I’m so excited!!! I’m sitting and wiggling around my seat like I’ve got ants in my pants, listening to Lady Gaga while I drink my chocolate coffee…

Friday definitely can’t come ANY sooner!! Got my golden circle ticket (I’m surprised I haven’t framed it yet lol…), got half my outfit ready (even though I’m moving and everything’s a mess) AND got my camera in my handbag. FRIDAY IS GOING TO BE EPIC!!!!

Even though I have to admit that Born This Way is not my favourite album of Gaga, I would probably still eat up every single song like it’s my favourite brand of chocolate! My favourite songs on the album being Alejandro, Judas and You and I.

My lovelies, expect photies galore on Manic Monday!

Have a fab hump day!

WTF Wednesday: Oh Dracula, what has happened to our vampires?

Hey my muppets!

So since I’ve decided that my topic of conversation for the week is Twilight and my love/hate relationship for the Saga, I was thinking, how did vampires come to sparkle? Where did the idea of a blood-sucking corpse that happens to be sexy even come from?

The Answer?

Thanks to Google’s dedication to him a few days ago, I learnt about Bram Stoker, the author of the 1897 Gothic novel, Dracula.

Count Dracula, as we all know, was the world’s first novel vampire. He did not sparkle. His powers were: Superhuman strength, is immortal (unless killed by a silver bullet, holy water, a steak to the heart, iron weapons or wild rose), can turn into a bat (and apparently other animals too), he could control the weather and he could vanish.

Since the count there had been many other vampire novels and even films about vampires, some of the most famous ones include Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire and Queen of the Damned. Other popular vampire films include Van Helsing and Underworld.

Vampires are meant to lure you in by their sexuality, their appetite for flesh, their naughty sense of nature. They’re meant to be irresistible like chocolate when you’re on your strictest diet….

So my question is… WTF Happened???

Stephanie Meyer’s vampires sparkle, are white as powder, are cold like stone, can run fast, have superhuman strengh and are immortal.

You decide what vampire you like best, but in the meantime, I think I’ll watch Queen of the Damned again!

Have a lovely day further peeps!

WTF Wednesday: Things about Movies and TV shows I don’t get… Part 1

Hello and welcome to another blog by YOURS TRUELY!

I think I’m having a brain-farting day where all the bloggers’ block I’ve had in the past weeks are just tumbling down and I can blog more than I have in ages.

ANYWAY

Today I was thinking about the random things they try and sell us (not literally) on movies and TV shows that give us the illusion that it’s the norm and when things don’t work out quite the same in reality, we seem to think we’ve done something wrong.

Don’t understand what I’m talking about? Check out some of the things I’ve picked up that make absolutely no sense and convert it to your everyday life…

They have time for everything

I don’t know about you, but if I had to work as a forensic in Miami in the hot sun all day, I will barely have energy to take a bath and sleep when I get home, let alone go out and find some random shmuck to kill, unlike my man Dexter over here.

Movies and TV shows that promote this lie:

Dexter

Supernatural

Iron Man

Batman

You can be pathetic (or a whore, or a geek), it’s ok, hot guys will still want you

Just ask personality-less girls like Bella from Twilight and Anastasia from 50 Shades of Grey. You can dress like a dowdy house-wife, be awkward, not look after yourself and be as fun as a plastic bag filled with needles and random vampires and CEOs will be DYING to date you.

Movies and TV shows that promote this lie:

Twilight

50 Shades of Grey (still going to become a movie)

Pretty Woman

She’s All That

It’s alright to stalk the person you love because when they fall in love with you they will forgive you

I don’t care if you look like Ian Somerhalder, have a yacht and feed me the finest sushi in the land. If you’re going into my room and watching me sleep, standing outside my room and watching me change, I’m going to call the cops on your ass. This is not in ANY way sexy or appealing and will NOT make me fall in love with you!

Movies and TV shows that promote this lie:

Twilight

The Girl Next Door

You’ve got Mail

Love Actually

If you’re going to cause shit, make sure you wear a bulletproof vest, you will be invincible

In lots of movies someone gets shot and you think they’re dead and later you find out they were wearing a bullet-proof vest, so they end up fine.

Ok what a load of hogwash. If the baddies are going to shoot you and they’ve got the training and amazing guns at their disposal, they could shoot you in your head or any other part of your body that’s exposed and you could lose a lot of blood and die anyway. Not to mention the fact that your vest (unless made from Nokia 3310 cellphones) has a 50% chance of failing on you depending on the gun and bullet the person shooting you is using.

PS – I’m joking about the Nokias so please don’t go and make one and try it out.

Movies and TV shows that promote this lie:

Back to the Future

Man With No Name

So have you learnt anything totally useless from movies or TV shows?

There are many more that I will eventually get round to, in the meantime, this is my part 1.

Have an awesome hump day!

WTF Wednesday: Horrifying Halloween Costumes

HAPPY HALLOWEEN MY DARLINGS!!

Cherry von Dagger wishing a Happy Halloween

Hope you’re all dressed up in your scariest costumes, ready for a day of trick or treating and scaring the crap out of little kids and old ladies alike.

I’ve decided to post a few pics of Halloween costumes gone wrong and ones that ARE just wrong!

Like I mentioned before, some people just look like they’ve fallen into a tub of paint and called it a “Halloween Costume”… bitch please! Effort is key. Even if it’s just a little bit.

SO here is Cherry von Dagger’s Halloween DON’Ts:

Please, please PLEEEEEASE don’t dress like this tonight. For your sake and for others. For the sake of humanity and for the children. Just don’t.

Have a happy Halloween and I hope you all get fat and fabulous from all the candy and booze!

Love y’all!

WTF Wednesday: Dafuq should I wear for Halloween??

Good morning peeps!

So 2 days till the Halloween parties start! BUT Halloween itself is 6 days away. Not sure how you celebrate it where you live, but where I live it’s partay time on Saturday night!

This was me last year Halloween (2011), I was a Silent Hill zombie nurse

If you’re anything like me, you love dressing up because you’re awesome or, like in my case, sure that you are a drag queen that was lucky enough to get the body of a hot chick (lol).

So you’re like “Oh Cherry I dunno what to wear this Halloween and I don’t have much time, help me, help me!”, well fear not pretty little cherries and daggers, your queen is here to save you!

I’ve decided that I’m going to write a blog on 4 cool Halloween outfits I think you guys should dress up as, if you want to… and stuff:

Spongebob Squarepants (or some other Nickelodeon character):

About 2 years ago I met a guy at a party who dressed as Spongebob. He looked insanely awesome! Only thing with that and the venue we were in, is that it was hot as HELL and the poor dude couldn’t see where he was walking, it was a disaster, but it still looked insane. SO if you’re just there for the cash prize, go for it. If you’re aiming for comfort, stay away…

Edward Scissorhands (or another Tim Burton creation):

Another super awesome look is Edward (not the sparkly one), but also very uncomfortable if you’re planning on drinking. Also be sure to get rubber knives and shit, we don’t want anyone losing an eye because of your costume. Tim Burton Characters are also cool for chicks, like there’s the Corpse Bride, Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas and The Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland.

Disney Princesses (and other fairytale creatures):

In no way do I like Kim Kardashian, but this little ensemble is just too cute! I love all things Disney and fairy-tale like and being a Disney princess for a day is just awesome!! You can decide if you wanna sex it up or be conservative. The only thing with an outfit like that is that it’s gonna be expensive to hire.

Go as a household item or toiletry (like towels, tampons, an iron)

LOL, I would never!!! But some people have the balls to pull it off and they’re generally a hit at parties and people love them (especially if you’re sanitary items, of course). ALSO hot as hell, but hey, you’re just there for the best dressed award, aren’t ya?

It’s simple really.

  • If you wanna be sexy, do something sexy. Normally lingerie and a pair of ears does the job for most girls.
  • If you wanna be scary, do something scary. One of the scariest things I’ve seen is the butler from Rocky Horror Picture Show. Also Frankenstein and if you wanna NOT stand out, zombies and mummies are good too.
  • Go to the nearest party shop in your area and browse the catalogues or browse the shelves, you’ll find shit from an Egyptian king to a Sailor girl.

Hope I helped in your quest for the PERFECT Halloween costume!

Love you guys!

WTF Wednesday: Clown Phobia

Good morning my cherries and daggers!

So, I have an absolute obsession with the circus. I’m actually reading a book called The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and although it takes me 17 years to finish a book, I think I might just take about 2 months to finish this – curse you short attention span!

But for me, taking 2 months to read a book is a great thing!

Anyway, so there’s not really any mention of clowns in the fabulous book, but telling people about it has raised the question – WHAT ABOUT THE CLOWNS???

Because I think 95% of people that I know have some strange fear of clowns.

Even when I type the word “clowns” into the Google Search Engine, the related searches are:

Funny Clowns

Happy Clowns

Nice Clowns

Evil Clowns

Scary Clowns

Seriously?

Personally, I don’t get it, but then, if you don’t have a phobia of something, how could you possibly understand it? So I took the liberty to do some research on it.

The fear of clowns is called Coulrophobia.

 “Coulrophobia can range from a mild discomfort when confronted by an actual clown to terror of clowns in the abstract.”

It’s a “new” fear originating in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s that basically originated thanks to movies such as Stephen King’s It and Fear of Clowns. 

Wikipedia on Stephen King’s It:

 “The story revolves around an inter-dimensional predatory life-form, which has the ability to transform itself into its prey’s worst fears allowing it to exploit the phobias of its victims. It mostly takes the form of a sadistic, wisecracking clown called “Pennywise the Dancing Clown”. The main protagonists are “The Losers Club”, or “The Lucky Seven”, a group of social outcasts who discover Pennywise and vow to destroy him by any means necessary.”

Scared yet?

Well let me know what you think of clowns…

WTF Wednesday: Fairytales vs Reality

Hey my cherries and daggers!

So again, a terrible bloggers block has befallen me, but I thought I’d write something about fairytales once more. Basically I’m going to write about girls who seem to think that they have a Prince Charming waiting for them and for guys who tend to think that there’s some super hot supermodel Princess waiting for them.

With that picture right there I could end the blog, because that’s basically the point I’m trying to make.

Disney movies and Porn have made people so delusional about love and marriage and what to look for in a person, that some of us fussy people (ahem, not me, of course lol), tend to find fault in anything that moves unless they’re basically 100% perfect. Which means we’ll never be happy, because nobody and nothing is perfect.

Alright, I’ll make a bit of a confession here. I am probably the most full of shit person when it comes to dating. This here is my dating chart:

Anything less, then GTFO!!

But seriously? Who wants to date a nice, oil painting you can’t have a conversation with because he’s as dumb as a rock? Who wants to date a nerdy, nice guy who doesn’t take care of himself? And who wants to date a sexy, intelligent guy who can’t talk about anything but himself? See where I’m going with this?

Same with guys. I mean, I’m sure guys wouldn’t mind dating a hot girl if she couldn’t string a sentence together (lol), but are you really going to settle for a supermodel who’s amazing in bed but doesn’t know the recipe for making ice?

What about a girl who’s nice and clever, but looks more like an extra for Night of the Living Dead than someone you can be proud of to take home to your mother?

Or what about a girl who’s intelligent and sexy, but hell, all she wants to do is go out shopping and eat at expensive restaurants?

I. Rest. My. Case.

Well on that WTF Wednesday note, I’m outta here.

Have a fab Wednesday sweethearts!

WTF Wednesday: Keeping it Gangnam Style

Elo my darlings,

it’s me again with another late post.

This one is about the whole craze about Gangnam Style. If you, like me, were as lost as a giraffe in Seattle about WTF Gangnam style actually is, it is this:

“It is a 2012 K-pop single by Korean musician PSY (Pronounced like Sigh). It has been highly praised for its humorous, catchy rhythm, and PSY’s unusual dance moves in the music video and live performances. The song was released on July 15, 2012, when it debuted at number one on the Gaon Chart. The music video has been viewed over 290 million times on YouTube as of September 27, 2012,[2] making it the site’s most watched K-pop video in history.”

Thank you once again Wikipedia!

Personally I think it’s the funniest music video I’ve seen in years and the song is pure epicness!

So, I’m sure you’ve already seen the video, but if you haven’t, here it is:

Tell me what you think about PSY and his “different” song…

WTF Wednesday: Toddlers & Tiaras

Hey my sexies!

So, call me crazy, but am I the only one who sees the madness in TLC’s TV show Toddlers & Tiaras? To me that show in one massive W-T-F rolled into one.

Don’t know what I’m talking about?

Well the show is basically about little girls being dressed up like mini-adults and paraded around a stage in a beauty pageant. Some contestants are babies and go up to the age of say… 10? I’m not even sure.

Sure, you’re probably thinking it’s all in good fun, but when you take a tiny little girl and dress her up in poofy dresses with fake boobs, tons of makeup, fake tans, fake nails and pluck their eyebrows, surely it’s going to cause some kind of psychological damage?

According to http://www.psychologycorner.com, it can.

“What can a child learn by being a professional/serial beauty pageant contestant? Well, encouraging the sense of competition is okay, having a hobby to be dedicated to is okay, spending time with mom is great, but when you become a winning machine, a 1st place chaser or a tiara collector, serious psychological problems are just around the corner. These contests promote pshysical beauty as a main value, complimented of course by the ‘special talent’ and ‘warm hearts’. A child, especially a female that is going to pay so much attention to her looks and that knows she is being assesed for it, is very proned to develop eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia.”

I blame the parents. I mean looking at the parents (especially the moms), they’re either ex-beauty queens themselves or have a strange fascination with beauty pageants and are living their dreams through their little girls (or boys).

The kids learn to be viciously competitive, obsessed with beauty and become downright brats in the making, when they should be playing with dolls or playing outside and getting scrapes on their knees from falling off their first bicycles… and not shaving rashes from their first wax!

Seems like the parents forget that they’re just little kiddies still growing up.

Anyway on a lighter note, check out this funny video of little Yvette, a pageant kid who’s just happy to be on TV:

Have a fabtastic Wednesday!

WTF Wednesday: The Rules of The Dating Game

Hello again my sexies!

Back in the day the famous “Dating Game” used to be simple. Girl meets boy, boy asks for girl’s phone number, girl gives it to him, boy phones girl and sets up a date and viola – the date is set.

However, in today’s world it seems more complicated. Girls tend to make the first move and boys don’t know where they stand, but girls feel that if they don’t do anything, boy will be approached by another girl. It seems to have turned into Survival of the Sexiest.

What are you supposed to do?

Facebook friend request? BBM Pin request? Admit it, you probably know more about the object of your desire than you need to since you probably stalked one of their social media profiles….

But who makes the rules? And why does it always have to be a game? I mean, you might not think it is, but the other person might be set in a specific way thinking “Why should I make the first move?”. At the end of the day you’re playing a cat and mouse game that might end up in tears and could have been avoided all together.

In my opinion, The Dating Game has certain ways to work for certain people. Being an old-fashioned girl, I believe a guy should always make the first move, but I realize that even though I’m not shy, per say, I am not going to go up to a guy asking for his phone number, so I might look snobbish and maybe even a like I’m not interested.

If you’re interested in someone, look their way, even flash a smile and carry on with what you’re doing. If they get it, cool. If they don’t, cool too.

For the guys: I’m sure I’m not the only female who’s thinking this way – MAKE THE FIRST MOVE!

If she smiles at you, she’s interested. Go up to her and start a conversation. Don’t be embarrassed or talk about embarrassing things. Talk about your surroundings, the weather, how her week was, whatever. Then, when the conversation goes good, ask if you can talk to her later and get the number. TA-DA!

Well, hope I did my good deed for the week.

Have an awesome and wacky Hump Day

♥Cherry♥
