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.


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:



Iron Man


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:


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:


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!


Tattoo Tuesday: Some Tim Burton Designs

Good morning my cherries and daggers!

Hope you’re having a fab Tuesday so far….

So, if you’re like me and eat, sleep and breathe everything Tim Burton, then you might have a slight heart attack at what I’m about to show you…

If you’re one of those people that have been sleeping under a rock for the past 30 years and don’t know who the master of Gothic/Comedic Movie genres is, then let me enlighten you…

Timothy Walter Burton was born on the 25th of August 1958 and is an American Director, Writer, Producer and Artist. You might recognise his work – Nightmare Before Christmas, the Batman films starring George Clooney and Michael Keeting, Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, Sweeney Todd, Corpse Bride, Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Planet of the Apes, Alice in Wonderland and many many many more!

Since I was just a little girl and didn’t know who he was, I was watching Nightmare Before Christmas on repeat, as well as Beetlejuice and the Batman movies. Yep, I was a pretty twisted kid and still am!

Anyway I’ve seen some awesome Burton-inspired tattoos I thought I’d share with you, check em out:

Was I the only one thinking “why in the hell would you get a Pee Wee Herman tattoo??”??

Anyway if you’ve never seen a Burton film, do yourself a favour and get with the program ASAP!!!

Happy day peeps!


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!


Tattoo Tuesday: The Joker and Scar Tats

Hey my sexies,

sorry about about the late post! The fudging public holiday on Monday (it was Heritage Day in South Africa) totally threw me off and now I’m 2 days late on everything.

So I was shopping yesterday when I saw a man with a big dog who happened to have one of THE COOLEST tattoos on his arm I have ever seen. I made it my soul goal to look for this little masterpiece and luckily I found a very similar copy to it:

The joker (and Scar from The Lion King), are probably the most badass villains in movie-villain history. Not only are they evil and awesome, but they look so good as tattoos!!

Check it out:

So I’ve decided that if I’m ever going to date a guy he should have one of these badass villains tattooed on him. And he should be rich and funny and beautiful… and a CEO… and drive an Audi… and his name should be Christian.

Just saying.

Have a fab rest of the day till I can figure out what to write for WTF Wednesday and Tribute Thursday!
