Strawberry Cinnamon Muffins

Recently, this past week I decided I was going to bake some kind of strawberry
muffins for the first time ever. It started with first thinking about and
craving chocolate chip muffins from the grocery store bakery and thinking how
long it's been since I've had them. Soon I got an idea to try to bake them
instead, so, I looked up recipes. As I searched for recipes, I came across a
morning muffins recipe with strawberries, cinnamon, bananas, nutmeg,
blueberries, and nuts. Being the baker and cooker that I am, I love to
experiment and change up recipes, curbing them to what I like. In that muffin
combo, I don't like blueberries, nuts and nutmeg, and didn't have any bananas
lying around, so, I cut those ingredients out. I put the strawberries and added
a bit more cinnamon than I probably should have. But it was definitely worth it! The result was Strawberry Cinnamon Muffins! They are healthier than chocolate
chip ones and they turned out delicious!

"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" (2011) - Movie Review - Laughter is the Fountain of Youth

Pirates, British army, Spanish army… and oh yes, we can't forget mermaids! All three of the former are after the proposed Fountain of Youth in this movie. But, what this movie doesn't mention as part of the recipe on how to find and use the Fountain of Youth is the ingredient of laughter. The new "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" is an adventurous movie where once the journey begins you never want it to end.

The grade I would give this movie is an A.

"No Strings Attached" - Movie Review - Remaining Completely Emotionless Is Not Possible

Friends with benefits? Unattached sex? Many people think being completely emotionless is better than including emotions. Depending on how you look at it, it may or may not be better at first. Eventually, at least one person ends up feeling something. Most of the time it doesn't work out, where very rarely it does. "No Strings Attached" is about exactly that concept.

The grade I would give this movie is an A.

"Unstoppable" - Movie Review - Parallels From the Movie to Real Life

Have you ever felt that your life was a runaway train? A train full of components that could explode if derailed? An unstoppable train that is difficult to gain control again after accidental mistake? Though the movie, "Unstoppable" is literary about that situation, there are parallels that could be drawn from the movie and metaphorically happen in real life.

The grade I would give this movie is a B+.

The Top Fifteen Overall Best Movies of 2010

There were many good movies and many terrible movies from the year 2010. But what separates a good film from a great film and from a terrible one is the movie's ability to suck you in to its story. Its ability to let it blow your mind. Lines and scenes don't necessarily get stuck in our minds to the point where we memorize them but we get pulled in to the story because it was shown with great precision. This my list of the overall best movies of 2010. It's a newer and extended version of my previous list so some will be repeated. On the other hand, there are movies I have added because they are so great they deserve at least a mention.

15.) Unstoppable

14.) How To Train Your Dragon

13.) Remember Me

12.) Tangled

11.) The Switch

10.) The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

9.) Easy A

8.) Despicable Me

7.) The Social Network

6.) Toy Story 3

5.) Alice in Wonderland

4.) Black Swan

3.) Inception

2.) The King's Speech

The newest, and supposedly the best and fastest technology is constantly being developed. We end up craving it, constantly looking for ways to help us deliver our thoughts and ideas faster.

The way the newer technology has an effect on our bodies, on us, and the way we communicate ideas.

Top Ten Best Movies of 2010

Most Impressionable in our Minds

10.) Get Him To The Greek
A hilarious movie with crazy antics the characters go through, especially the character Aaron Green (Jonah Hill), all just to get the famous rock star, Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) to the Greek Theater to play a concert. The movie leaves an impression in our minds because the antics are very memorable and unique in a laughable way.

9.) Little Fockers
It’s the third movie in the “Meet The Parents” series. This movie is especially a delightful comedy and impressionable if you’ve seen the first two movies, Meet The Parents and Meet the Fockers. They reference situations into jokes from the previous movies. Definitely, it is another great movie for instant laughter.

8.) The Social Network
It’s a movie about the wonderful social network of Facebook and how it began. This movie is leaves an impression in our mind because finding all the struggles it and it’s creator Mark have been through is moving and realize it’s interesting how something like Facebook, little by little, can control people’s lives.

7.) Easy A
It is a beautifully written script by Bert V. Royal with great actors. It’s a movie that when you give it lots of thought, it makes the viewer think. It leaves an impression on our minds because if you dig deep into the meaning of the movie it deals with lust and teen promiscuity, and by not being yourself, you only hurt yourself.

6.) Toy Story 3
It’s a movie not just for kids but also very enjoyable for adults as well. The movie is impressionable on our minds because it brings back memories to the adults of when they were younger and from the first two Toy Story movies. It certainly brought back memories to me of my youth.

5.) Burlesque
Burlesque is a fun, funny, and titillating movie. The singing and dancing weaved with love stories makes the movie very impressionable and remember-able. The star-studded cast also helps it to leave an amazing impression. It moves me to now want to learn burlesque. The movie, Burlesque, is a wonderful and perfect date movie to see with your special someone.

4.) Inception
Inception is an intriguing movie, which keeps the viewer engaged in the story. It leaves an impression in our minds because it suggests the concept of how to approach situations is so bizarre it leaves us thinking. The viewer needs to “read between the lines.”

3.) Twilight Saga: Eclipse
The third movie from the Twilight Saga, Eclipse steps up the tension and action of the story and is fantastically filmed. I am not just saying that because I am a Twilighter myself, but because I feel it is true. From the very good scripting from the book to the acting and effects. This movie leaves an impression on our minds because it is very enjoyable and done well. A great movie to watch that will keep you on the edge and laughing, and not to mention, also Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson are smokin’ hot.

2.) Despicable Me
Despicable Me is an excellent and hilarious movie everyone loves. There is a perfect mix of animation and humor that leaves a great impression on our minds. The lines are memorable and easy enough to be able to be repeated over and over. Despicable Me is also another star-studded cast who are the perfect mix. It is a great “pick me up,” funny movie for instant laughs.

1.) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Finally, we reach the number one movie on this list, which is… none other than, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. I consider this movie to be the best movie of 2010, not only because I am an absolute Potter fan, but also because it is a stunning movie over all. The script was superb-ably written, following the book wonderfully, the effects are incredible, and the acting much more terrifically done, the best out of all the Harry Potter series movies, mostly due to one of the best directors the films have had, David Yates. This movie definitely leaves an impression in our minds, as it is so awe-inspiring, you are left speechless.

Poetry Taste #8: "Out Of Control"

"Out Of Control"

Falling apart from the inside,
All too fast, tears slide.
Out of control,
A heart-ached soul,
So wrong; it can never be right,
She considers taking flight.

[Alyssa Scheidemann - 2011]
