So here I am at 68 and I have to say I still appreciate a beautiful man. My taste is probably exotic. I still like the bad boys. We have been watching Son's of Anarchy. Yes Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) is a beautiful man. I love the character too, even if he is bad. So my question is, what's wrong with me. I am a Christian, I do not like or believe in violence and don't actually enjoy watching it. Still some movies really hook me in. Son's of Anarchy is one. Great characters (even if they are bad) and great story lines. Nasty gangs and people but you find yourself rooting for the sons and hoping they don't get caught. That's sooooo wrong on so many levels, but I can't, and do not want to stop watching until the story ends.
Another series I have been watching and can't wait for it to return in February is "Vikings" I can't wait to see that again. Naturally it's violent and today's movies are not tame like old movies used to be. In this series it actually is about a real person and does follow history. The lead Ragnor (Travis Fimmel) was a real person. The actor who plays him is just, well, ahem.....sexy.
We also very much enjoyed "The Musketeers" another BBC production. I personally enjoyed D'Artagnon (Luke Pasqualino).....they keep remaking this story from Alexander Dumas, and it seems like it just gets better. D'Artagnon sure does.
So along with shows like "The Walking Dead" I have no fav's in that one, I watch for the sheer love of the story. Even though I would not normally enjoy zombie movies. Besides, no point in getting attached to anyone in that show. They seem to get bumped off.
Oh I like the shows like "Downton Abbey" where my fav charactor is the Dowager Duchess (Maggie Smith) but if I had to choose between then (on same night as Walking Dead) please don't make me choose I would go for the action movies. So far I have not had to choose just one conflicting night and I watched Downton Abbey the next night.
Well that's me spilling the beans.......I like the bad boys still. The good ones are just so.....lame. Sigh. I am bad, a terrible person I know.....I know.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
