weekend jokes…;)

May 11, 2013
ImageVia Rose Smith: Two rednecks were looking at a
Sears catalog and admiring the models. One says to the other,
‘Have you seen the beautiful girls in this catalog?’
The second one replies, ‘Yes, they are very beautiful.
And look at the price!’

The first one says, with wide eyes, ‘Wow, they aren’t very expensive.
At this price, I’m buying one.’
The second one smiles and pats him on the back.
‘Good idea! Order one and if she’s as beautiful
as she is in the catalog, I will get one too.’

Three weeks later,
the youngest redneck asks his friend,
‘Did you ever receive the girl you ordered
from the Sears catalog?’

The second redneck replies……
‘No, but it shouldn’t be long now.
I got her clothes yesterday!’

Between sportsmen: “Why you didn’t take your 1st place when you had to receive your medal after you won the competition?” “I’m afraid of heights…”
 What is the expression sharks love to hear from us, people? “Man over board…”
And my crazy quote/thought from a book of mine: Looking at the ground could be the best way to find the best things from the sky…. my Space Hide & Seek/Space Ghosts.

April 11, 2013

ImageI hope some of my friends from facebook will like to see some of the jokes they shared at the site here too : 

 

Via Joe O’connell: a little boy in the drugstore with his dad, suddenly creates a fuss, he wants a chocolate Easter Bunny. finally his father gives him one but the boy has a temper storm. he wants a male Easter bunny. the druggist and the father try to tell the boy it doesn’t make any difference, with that the boy holds up his little finger, and says there’s that much more chocolate…

Via Lynne Pentney: I was at the post office, when I see a blond woman shouting into an envelope. I asked, “What are you doing?” The blond replied,”Sending a voice mail…”

 

“Is it true that after the divorce you still live with your esx-wife?” a man asked his friend. 

“Yes…”

“So, is your life better now?”

“Not at all… The only difference is that when we quarrel and she throws dishes at me, she hits me every time…”

 

 Too much striving for cleaning leads to a dirty mind… my future Incredible Future.

Jack The Giant Slayer – one of the ancient fairy-tales told in a better way.

April 6, 2013

Image

“As a king I could pay you a lot of gold, as a father I will never be able to pay you back…” This line from the movie Jack The Giant Slayer (I can’t remember the exact words, actually, but the meaning was the same) was one of the many things in this old-story-told-in-a-better-modern-way that would make any fan realize motion pictures could improve and develop the old fairy-tales and be much better, wiser or even funnier than the one-time adventures our parents used to put us to bed with.

I guess many fantasy fans and critics would say the movie is too naive and childish, yet everyone should agree it’s a fairy-tale and everything there should be much different than our everyday boring routine. That’s why any critic should admire the good job the movie crew have done creating the breath-taking plot, the amazing fairy-tale creatures, the brave deeds or some characters’ wise thoughts. Motion pictures like Jack The Giant Slayer could really inspire any fantasy fan to show some brave actions, to look not only for the amazing special effects in such movies but for wise thoughts and quotes too, and to have such fun in the movie hall as it could never happen with another story about our modern life…

Actually, if you’ve seen The Hobbit before Jack The Giant Slayer, you wouldn’t be so impressed by the special effects in the fairy-tale with the magical beans. At moments, the giants are as “good-looking” as some of the orcs, yet as a whole the costumes and the horrible creatures from Bilbo Baggins’ story were more impressive. It doesn’t mean, of course, that the other qualities of Jack’s story are not good enough. A friend of mine from UK said it was a typical English movie, showing some good sides of monarchy too (noble thoughts and actions of kings and princesses, their compassion and honorable behavior, etc). I guess this motion picture could become another reason for English people to love their queen?

Jack, The Giant Slayer includes some horrible scenes, I have to admit, and though we are accustomed to such violence in movies already (it couldn’t be put in a row with real horror motion pictures, of course, like Friday 13th, A Nightmare On Elm Street, etc), some people with faint hearts should close their eyes at some of the dreadful moments… Anyway, the excellent crew is another plus for the movie:Nicholas Hoult as Jack is a typical hero from most fairy-tales we’ve read,Eleanor Tomlinson is amazing and not typical princess from most of the stories form our childhood,Ewan McGregor is a great guardian and soldier, Stanley Tucci is perfect as a traitor, Bill Nighy is one of the nastiest and most cunning giants you’d ever see, Ian McShane is a king many countries would be proud of, etc…

Forever Found, Forever Lost – a modern werewolves’ story.

March 31, 2013

Image

A book could be one of the best gifts for most occasions. If you didn’t feel the truth in such a statement, maybe you haven’t had the right book as a present J. I for one felt it again when a few months ago I received my copy as a gift from the author himself (can you believe he sent it thousands of miles away from USA – up to Europe, Bulgaria :)! And I’m really glad for his confidence and trust in my reading skills, thank you, my friend, Ross Osborn!

Actually, I usually don’t like stories with too common characters in the genre like vampires, werewolves, fairies, etc (they are as ordinary already as the people we see every day in the streets), and try to create some new in some of my books (have a look at my blog post New vs. old characters in fantasy/sci-fi genre). Yet, as every rule and fact have their exceptions, Forever Found, Forever Lost is a excellent prove a story with common characters could be as interesting as any other with any creatures and monsters involved. To combine the old fairy-tale and fantasy beings with new details and adventures is a great way to create a breath-taking story and Ross Osborn did a good job with this werewolves’ novel of his. Here, every fan of fantasy, horror and thriller genres could find guiding lines about the way to really kill a werewolf, what a life such creatures should actually lead to avoid killing of innocent people, the interesting and thrilling feelings and senses the hairy and vicious beings have, etc.

I guess some people wouldn’t agree with me, but I couldn’t refrain from pointing out this book also includes not only horror, breath-taking adventures, facts and events. There are philosophy and wisdom too, there’s what the enormous power of one of the greatest forces in the Universe (LOVE with capital letters) could do, there are interesting details about life in the cold areas of Alaska and the customs of the natives, etc.

Finally, I have to admit I really enjoyed all the slang and Scottish dialect’s expressions in the book. As I am not a native speaking English guy, they looked as interesting and informative to me as the other facts and descriptions in the story J.

Thank you again, my friend, Ross Osborn! Will be glad to read your next books too, with all the gripping and informative adventures and events!
