Divergent will never be the next Hunger Games or Twilight

After reading the last chapter of Divergent, I was so shocked, how often does the main character die in these things? I’ve always thought it was a little unrealistic how the hero always manages to escape unscathed after staring danger and death in the face over and over again. No closure on what so ever on part of Four. I was crushed and confused on the writer decision how to end the book. Come on, why do you think the Twilight and Hunger Games series were so successful? Lets face it, they were both very basic stories, a girl in love with a boy that out of her league and girl fighting back against tyrant, but they both delivers a very happy ending and concluded very wisely.

Ok not everyone loves to have a happy ending, but just to be different on other best sellers book is not an escaped to go against the based on the beginning of your story. Half of the fan base that finished the last book, tell people that they wished they’d never started the series is not a good book. Remember this is a young adult genre, they doesn’t want perfect character, Twilight and Hunger Games stumbled in their final installments, but the movie audience showed up because they knew how the stories ultimately ended and they knew that, despite the missteps along the way, they would get their payoff.

Maybe it just me… still reading a happily ever after stories, have hang ups with Cinderella and Snow white. But this is entertainment, I craving for happy ending and still believing that happy ending still existing though we don’t have perfect life.

Read the Harry Potter Prequel!

J.K. Rowling penned an 800 word prequel to her Harry Potter series to be sold at an auction. All proceeds will be donated to
English PEN and Dyslexia Action. Here is the transcribe of HARRY POTTER PREQUEL sold for about $50,000.

The Harry Potter Prequel, by J.K. Rowling

The speeding motorcycle took the sharp corner so fast in the darkness that both policemen in the pursuing car shouted ‘whoa!’ Sergeant Fisher slammed his large foot on the brake, thinking that the boy who was riding pillion was sure to be flung under his wheels; however, the motorbike made the turn without unseating either of its riders, and with a wink of its red tail light, vanished up the narrow side street.

‘We’ve got ‘em now!” cried PC Anderson excitedly. ‘That’s a dead end!”

Leaning hard on the steering wheel and crashing his gears, Fisher scraped half the paint off the flank of the car as he forced it up the alleyway in pursuit.

There in the headlights sat their quarry, stationary at last after a quarter of an hour’s chase. The two riders were trapped between a towering brick wall and the police car, which was now crashing towards them like some growling, luminous-eyed predator.

There was so little space between the car doors and the walls of the alley that Fisher and Anderson had difficulty extricating themselves from the vehicle. It injured their dignity to have to inch, crab-like, towards the miscreants. Fisher dragged his generous belly along the wall, tearing buttons off his shirt as he went, and finally snapping off the wing mirror with his backside.

‘Get off the bike!’ he bellowed at the smirking youths, who sat basking in the flashing blue light as though enjoying it.

They did as they were told. Finally pulling free from the broken wind mirror, Fisher glared at them. They seemed to be in their late teens. The one who had been driving had long black hair; his insolent good looks reminded Fisher unpleasantly of his daughter’s guitar-playing, layabout boyfriend. The second boy also had black hair, though his was short and stuck up in all directions; he wore glasses and a broad grin. Both were dressed in T-shirts emblazoned with a large golden bird; the emblem, no doubt, of some deafening, tuneless rock band.

‘No helmets!’ Fisher yelled, pointing from one uncovered head to the other. ‘Exceeding the speed limit by – by a considerable amount!’ (In fact, the speed registered had been greater than Fisher was prepared to accept that any motorcycle could travel.) ‘Failing to stop for the police!’

‘We’d have loved to stop for a chat,’ said the boy in glasses, ‘only we were trying -’

‘Don’t get smart – you two are in a heap of trouble!’ snarled Anderson. ‘Names!’

‘Names?’ repeated the long-haired driver. ‘Er – well, let’s see. There’s Wilberforce… Bathsheba… Elvendork…’

‘And what’s nice about that one is, you can use it for a boy or a girl,’ said the boy in glasses.

‘Oh, OUR names, did you mean?’ asked the first, as Anderson spluttered with rage. ‘You should’ve said! This here is James Potter, and I’m Sirius Black!’

‘Things’ll be seriously black for you in a minute, you cheeky little -’

But neither James nor Sirius was paying attention. They were suddenly as alert as gundogs, staring past Fisher and Anderson, over the roof of the police car, at the dark mouth of the alley. Then, with identical fluid movements, they reached into their back pockets.

For the space of a heartbeat both policemen imagined guns gleaming at them, but a second later they saw that the motorcyclists had drawn nothing more than –

‘Drumsticks?’ jeered Anderson. ‘Right pair of jokers, aren’t you? Right, we’re arresting you on a charge of -’

But Anderson never got to name the charge. James and Sirius had shouted something incomprehensible, and the beams from the headlights had moved.

The policemen wheeled around, then staggered backwards. Three men were flying – actually FLYING – up the alley on broomsticks – and at the same moment, the police car was rearing up on its back wheels.

Fisher’s knees bucked; he sat down hard; Anderson tripped over Fisher’s legs and fell on top of him, as FLUMP – BANG – CRUNCH – they heard the men on brooms slam into the upended car and fall, apparently insensible, to the ground, while broken bits of broomstick clattered down around them.

The motorbike had roared into life again. His mouth hanging open, Fisher mustered the strength to look back at the two teenagers.

‘Thanks very much!’ called Sirius over the throb of the engine. ‘We owe you one!’

‘Yeah, nice meeting you!’ said James. ‘And don’t forget: Elvendork! It’s unisex!’

There was an earth-shattering crash, and Fisher and Anderson threw their arms around each other in fright; their car had just fallen back to the ground. Now it was the motorcycle’s turn to rear. Before the policemen’s disbelieving eyes, it took off into the air: James and Sirius zoomed away into the night sky, their tail light twinkling behind them like a vanishing ruby.

What did you think? Who do you think the guys in the alley were? Why were James and Sirius trying to go so fast on their bikes? So many questions!

Anne Curtis distress

It was started on March 21, 2010 when poor Filipino-Australian VJ and television host Anne Marie Ojales Curtis-Smith accidentally revealed her frontal private part. The exposure of her private part caused lot of mental distress to the actress and she expressed her views about the incident in a recent media interview too.

Various spectators took advantage used their cell phone cams or web cams and made videos of the entire embarrassing incident and few of them were posted online too.

The girl suffered much from the scandal wildfire, it was not her fault the bikini decided to slip and she’s begging the public please, so…  REMOVE IT ON YOUR WALL PAPER and STOP POSTING IT ON ANY OF SOCIAL NETWORK ACCOUNT.

Ms. Anne Curtis don’t worry, its happened, even with Katherine Heigl has Wardrobe Malfunction Video and Picture.

House of Night

I just finished reading the House of Night, yes this is another vampire story. Personally I don’t recommend it to 13 years old below or pre-teen individual. House of Night deeper version of Twilight, it’s all about girl power. While Bella doting on Edward and thinking about him 24 hours a day, you’ll be learned that Zoey Redbird is quite the opposite with her three boyfriend(s) and her mixed gender group of friends.

P.C. and Kristin Cast unique and very creative story telling intrigued me. In the House of Night world where vampires and humans live together, acknowledge each other. But still fear each others presence.

The Marked, wherein Zoey Redbird is the heroine enter the vampire world. While she was worrying about her ex-boyfriend’s drinking and her upcoming Geometry exams, a Vampyre Tracker “marks” her and it change her life forever. Yes the story setting again on the boarding school (like Harry Potter) but the story goes around with her hilarious group of friends/sidekicks, and a healthy dose of action. She became an apprentice of Neferet, a high-priestess of Nix and lead the Dark Daughters Club where the major highlights of story evolves.

Again, I don’t recommend this series of books to pre-teens, sensitive issues such as, sexuality, traditions and belief was highly creative (in such a way it goes against every religious norms).

Aling Dionisia

Aling DionisiaWhat can I say about her? She’s a star! Yes Pacman (Boxing Champion Manny Pacquiao) mother charmed everyone with her witty and very real presence.

Neil posted the katursi photo in his website,  it was sure hit and make my day.

I think Aling Dionisia still awe with the fame she’s having now. She enjoys every flash of the cameras more than anything. Well, i will overwhelmed also if media camera’s taking my everyday activities . We can’t blame her. All her life, she wasn’t able to experience this kind of life. Above all she had Manny as her son.

From being labandera, her activities now a day, busy with her photo shoot, commercial, tv guesting, interviews and attending social events, awards etc. Yes, she is a true example of rug to richness but still she has kind heart and a true person.

Wowowee host impressed with the reception Aling Dionisia received in her visit at show, Revillame invited her to co-host the show, to which Aling Dionisia could only reply, again, with a showbiz smile.

While ABS-CBN mainstay who is seemingly awed by Aling Dionisia is Boy Abunda.

Upon seeing how she won over the crowd in “Wowowee,” Boy urged her on air to “sign up” with him as a “talent.”

“Aling Dionisia, you’re an original. Kung kailangan mo ng manager, tawagan mo lang ako,” Boy said.

People make fun of her. But she doesn’t care. She like the attention and loved by the crowd.

Michael Jackson – Thrilled Us with his Thriller

This are thing that I remembered about the King of Pop, the thrilled of dancing his 1982 Greatest Hit Thriller.

I was 9 years old and pretty much leaner, I remembered begging to be part of school dance number of my class, yup… confession, I got 2 right feet. But it was about the wearing of the mask, black shirt outfit and really love the beat of Thriller. Then I saw the “13 going on 30” of Jennifer Garner, it brings me back to my 9 years old dance step. It was nice and funky…

I also remembered my everyday outfit the towering twist hairstyle, tight jeans on wash day, the big socks and my old high cut Nike.

Michael Jackson

Nostalgia…

The Pepsi commercial “The Choice of New Generation” and “We Are the World”  wherein Michael co-writing this charity single with Lionel Richie and enlisting a who’s who of celebrity friends to join him in song, raising money and awareness for poverty in Africa.

Now the King of Pop gone, he will always be remained in my youthful memories. Shall his family keep the Neverland Ranch. Shall his children continue his legacy. Shall people forgive him… I hope so. After all, he is Bad but somehow he Heal the World.

As for me, I will continue playing my favorite list of his  song …

Thriller, Beat It, Bad, Dangerous, Billie Jeans, Ben, One Day in Your Life, The Girl is Mine, The Way You make Me Feel, I Just Cant Stop Loving You, Heal the World and Black or White.

An Invisible Thread – Heroes Last Episode

Tim Kring is truly a genius, we just watch the last the twenty-fifth and final episode of the third season of the NBC science fiction drama series Heroes and fifty-ninth episode overall. It was aired last April 27 at NBC.

Remember… “I Am Sylar” episode. I love the idea of Sylar shape-shifting abilities and beginning to have identity crisis.

But the fight against Sylar, an awesome twist and a death. The idea of the unconscious Sylar, alter mentally by Matt was truly awesome. Noah knows that Sylar’s acquired ability of reading the history of objects enabling him to fill in the gaps of Nathan’s life, and fully embody Nathan’s personality and gain his memories.

While Sylar, the new ‘Nathan’ confirms the President has indeed shut down Building 26, and the funds transferred so that Angela and Noah can start up their own company which Noah favorably wants to call “The Company”.

It was also sooooo exciting, thanks to NBC they include the Prologue of Volume 5. Woowwwweeee!

Wedding of Grey-Shepherd on 100th episode and Season Finale

Yes I am into Grey’s Anatomy this weekend. Got hooked up in Season 1-5 dvd marathon  and really loved it.

Hope the wedding will never be the same with Kristina and Burke.  After all,  she don’t have to  shave her eyebrows and wear a chain necklace.

I do believe Meredith and Derek are soul mates … Also,  please I also believe in happy ending and all the crappy stuffed such children, getting old and quarrel, lots of discussion and making up. Please make the wedding official, love the post it  agreement/vows but i really wanted to see it will be official either on church or city hall,  it real doesn’t matter.

I hope Dr. Isobel Stevens character will live and I really don’t want another ghost or mere imagination and hallucination of tumor. Hope Alex and Izzie will have a happy ending.  Hope George will have another face and his character remained intact.  Hope Christina and Owen will have love triangle to Burke. Hope Callie come to her senses and be friend with Arizona.
