Saving Mr. Banks – New Movie

igr1fe4Here’s the first look at Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson in the new movie, “Saving Mr. Banks”

This new movie will come out at the end of 2013 around Christmas, and it features Tom Hanks as Walt Disney! It’s about the making of the 1964 Disney classic “Marry Poppins”, and according to the trailer that was just released this week,  it looks like its going to be a good one!

Watch the trailer below: 

Despicable Me 2

Despicable-Me-2Okay, it’s officially been one week since Despicable Me 2 came out, and I can’t help but find myself wanting to go back and watch it again. Yes, I know I am now 21 years old, and this is an animated film. It’s just so funny and the minions are adorable!

It’s a great movie and if you get the chance while it’s still in theatres, go see it!  There’s something about going to the theatre filled with children that makes watching an animated movie so much better. Haha, that might sound a little creepy. What I mean is that.. their reactions are entertaining. Some kids scream at the screen while others whisper to their friends and giggle quietly. The kid in front of me actually heard my friend and I laughing and kept turning around to look at us.

I actually remember the summer when the first movie came out, which seems like just yesterday. It’s crazy that they have already finished a second one, but I know the kids love it. The minions just make everyone so happy, and we can’t forget about Agnus- she’s adorable.

despicable-me-2-imgAnyway, the point of this post is that, you should go see Despicable Me 2. I found myself laughing at stupid parts and smiling throughout the whole thing – so I’m sure you will too.

Pirates of the Caribbean 5

p3(4)Captain Jack Sparrow is back in action! One of my favorite series of movies is the ever popular- Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and according to the article listed below the fifth movie is in the works.

It probably won’t be until 2015 until we see Captain Jack and the gang back on the big screen, but I bet it will be worth the wait. I was watching ABC Family this weekend and they were playing the other movies, which got me thinking about if they are going to make another one so I decided to google it. Once I looked it up, I couldn’t help but get excited!

They left us with such a cliffhanger at the end of the fourth movie, there was no doubt in my mind that they wouldn’t make another one. I mean the Black Pearl is in a glass jar, of course Captain Jack has to get it out of there, right?  OR maybe they will continue the story about the mermaid and the religious guy?

It seems that they are still working on the script, so there’s no insight on what the movie will be about. I really wish they would continue the story with Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan, but it doesn’t seem to be going in that direction since neither Orlando Bloom or Keira Knightley were in the last movie. Maybe we will get lucky and they will come back. I think Penelope Cruz did a wonderful job in On Stranger Tides, maybe she will be in the next one too. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Are you a POTC fan?  Which movie is your favorite, and why? What do you think the next movie will be about?

‘Big Brother’ racism: Modeling agency dumps housemate

Anika Ehlers:

big-brother-600I’m not sure if you know this or not, but I am a pretty big fan of the CBS show Big Brother. I don’t subscribe to the live feeds or anything, but I do try to watch every show and stay up to date on all the drama and game talk while watching some of the Big Brother After Dark episodes when I can.

Well, they recently just started Season 15, and if you watch the show you might have heard some of the stories about this article and the contestants so far. This just goes to show how important it is to watch what you do and what you say in any situation. Aaryn and Gina Marie have apparently gotten released from their real-life jobs because of the comments they have said on this show.

Although many of us will never get the opportunity to be on a reality show that records every single thing that we do, we still need to be aware of the consequences. We are on the Internet and the same thing can happen to us. Rather it may be with former, current, and future employers or co-workers. This can happen to anyone, so be careful about the things you say or do online.

A Texas modeling agency is dropping a Big Brother 15 contestant as a client after she spewed racist and homophobic comments on the show’s 24/7 feed.

Zephyr Talent of Austin, TX announced on its Facebook page that it will release Aaryn Gries, 22, from her contract after she was seen and heard making hateful comments about fellow participants.

“Aaryn, season 15 cast member of Big Brother, revealed prejudices and other beliefs that we (Zephyr Talent) do not condone,” the page reads. “We certainly find the statements made by Aaryn on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by Aaryn, either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are hers alone and do not represent the views or opinions of Zephyr Talent. Upon much consideration, we have decided to release Aaryn from…

Blog Update

Hello blogoshpere!

Okay, I am soooooo sorry! I haven’t posted since the beginning of the year and it’s already July! You wanna know why? It’s because I couldn’t remember my password!! How silly is that? I finally found my notebook with my passwords, and I am now going to start blogging again!

Let me tell you, the password was an easy one. I can’t believe I couldn’t remember it. I just have so many different accounts and passwords for different things that they all get mixed up inside my head. No need to fear though, I am BACK.

I love the changes that wordpress has made and I can’t wait to upgrade my blog and update everything. Just thought I should let you guys know, and I hope that you will be back soon to read some of my upcoming blog posts.

The Lonely Island- YOLO

Check out the new song by The Lonely Island that aired on SNL last night! It’s a whole different take on the phrase YOLO, and it features Adam Levine and Kendrick Lamar. I can’t get enough of it, it’s so catchy and I think I actually like the meaning behind this version of You Only Live Once.

At the end of the video it says The Lonely Island will have another album this year, I can’t wait!

Cassadee Pope wins The Voice

Cassadee+Pope+++png+2012

In case you missed the season finale of the popular hit show The Voice, they announced the winner Cassadee Pope! She rocked her way to number one throughout the entire season on Team Blake by singing songs with Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, and her idol Avril Lavigne!

Screen shot 2012-12-18 at 10.22.32 PM

When I first heard that she was going to be on this show and before seeing any of the other contestants, I knew that she would win! She used to be apart of one of my all time favorite bands, Hey Monday!

They were actually one of the first people I saw in concert, and when I heard they broke up I was a little heartbroken to be honest.

When I found out that they are all doing solo work and that Cassadee is continuing her singing, I jumped up and down. I even kept her autograph from when I saw them in concert at warped tour one summer!

Cassadee+Pope+cassadeepopethevoice

She has come a long way, and she still has a long way to go! I thought the other contestants were just as good, but I knew that Cassadee deserved this win!  I am so happy for her. Congrats Cassadee, and keep on being awesome!

In honor of her win, I am now going to listen to all of my Hey Monday songs on my iPod. Did you guys ever see them in concert when they were still together? Did you think Cassadee was going to win? Let me know what you think in the comments!

 

Check out her blind audition from the beginning of the season—- 

“Bingo, Maybe?”

Wahoooo! I have had my blog for an entire year now! But, I have yet to keep a constant posting rate. I will work on that.

This will be a quick post, I just wanted to share with you guys a video I have been working on! For one of the clubs I am involved with at Iowa State, called ISU AfterDark, we wanted to create a parody of the Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen. This video is based around our events and the most popular attraction, BINGO!

Every college student loves free stuff, and we give away a ton of prizes at bingo. The video is also a recap of our entire semester, since we are heading into finals week. Being the PR Director I edited and created the whole thing with the help of my public relations committee.

Check it out and let me know what you think!

Gangnam Style.

Alright, Alright. I know I have been buried deep in the mud and I haven’t posted a blog in ages.. but this is sweeping the InterWeb globe, and can’t go unnoticed. Gangnam Style. If you haven’t heard of it, google it. It’s the dance-craze that is not only sweeping the nation, but the world after being posted last month on YouTube.

Psy, the South Korean rapper created this song and ‘horse-riding’ dance , and now everyone is doing it! Just writing this post makes me want to get up and dance. It’s so catchy!

Read this news post for more information, http://articles.nydailynews.com/2012-09-07/news/33682557_1_gangnam-psy-dance

I will post the video below, and if anyone has and tips to teach me how to do this dance, please help! Post your comments and links to other parody of your favorite GANGNAM STYLE videos. I know SNL did a great skit last weekend, which I will have to post too.

Can you do this dance? What do you think of Psy? Let us know in the comments. Follow me on twitter @anikaehlers.

 

Call Me Maybe.

Okay, I have told myself I am going to start posting on my blog a lot more. So here it goes…

If you haven’t been living under a rock this summer then you probably know that Carly Rae Jepsen’s song Call Me Maybe has been a huge hit on all the radio stations and on the internet.

I just wanted to share this video recently posted online. I think it is really funny, and if you know what ChatRoulette is then you will think it’s hilarious too! It’s a video by Steve Kardynal and if you get the chance- check out some of his other videos too!
