Rolling in the Deep

The following video kind of annoys me, but I'm in love with the song, so I'll forgive it's annoyances. Like, for example, why do they show her singing while sitting down?? Any good singer knows you can't get that kind of deep, resonating sound while sitting down. My eight years of choir and voice classes are arguing with their logic here. Just sayin'.

Anyway, I'm sure you're already very familiar with this song, as it's been in Billboard's Top 10 since April 16th and dominated the #1 spot for 7 weeks during May and June. I had to share it now though, because it kept showing up in shows and movies that I've been watching this week, so it's totally stuck in my head.

Oddly enough, the first time I heard Adele's song, Rolling in the Deep, I wasn't that impressed. Not sure why. Then the 2nd time I heard it, the beauty of it dug into my soul and I got chills. Since then, I can't listen to it enough! Adele manages to tap into such raw emotion here that it seriously gives me chills every time I hear it now!

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
