Pieces of Life

I Heart youTube!

I thought I’d share with you some of the really hysterical comments I get daily on youTube. I literally laugh myself silly sometimes at these comments and I can’t help but show you some of these because they may just amuse you too!

In order to be a video blogger you need to have really tough skin. People are brutal. I’ve had people tell me I have fat hands, I talk too much, and worst! Lucky enough the positive outweighs the negative in my entire time on youTube however I’ve never seen so many people so interested in where I get the money to buy cosmetics. I’ve taken to telling them I sell organs and rob banks! Seriously, when did it become anyone’s business where I get money to pay for anything I might own? Lordie! I guess these people didn’t have a Mum like mine growing up! If I dared ask such a question I’d get hit over the head with a broom stick or a wooden spoon (My mum’s Italian!). My mother instilled some serious manners into my sister and I and asking people where they got the money to buy something or how much it costs is a number 1 offense! That’s like seven years to life in my mother’s book!

I’m not ranting here I’m just generally amused! At first I was shocked but as I got used to youTube I realized that this was something I’d face daily and now I’m not so much shocked or hurt but just plain amazed at what people say!

Mind you these are NOT children! These are grown adults ranging from 19-35 or more! The funny thing is on a rare occasion some of these, as I dubbed them, “strange ones” follow me over to blogger and make generally rude comments. Mind you I really dislike taking away a person’s freedom of opinion and I generally want people to say what it is they are thinking but somehow these “strange ones” think it’s their god given right not only to insult me on youTube but waltz on over to Musings, pop a squat, and insult me here!

After all that babbling allow me to paste a few of my personal favorites:

Comment:
OMG you breath so loud you talk and then it sounds like your gasping lol.

My reply:
sorry ’bout that. I hadn’t noticed I was gasping or breathing loudly.

I doubt she noticed the sarcasm in my “sorry ’bout that…” This particular gem comes to us from a 23 year old young lady.

In my travels through youTube everyone is VERY, VERY fond of telling me about infections, eye damage, bacteria, germs, etc….as if I didn’t already know all this.

This particular comment was in reply to the fact someone had said that powders are good for at least three years. I assume she wants me to use an eyeshadow once and throw it out after 2 months!

Once you open them though, you’re supposed to throw them out wayyy earlier than that; otherwise, you’re just setting yourself up for any eye infection.


Update: No Pink Eye Yet! Phew!

As I was saying earlier people are positively fascinated with my income!

Comments:

ooo mmmyyy ggooosh!!!..loopove your collection!!!!…

how mcuh money do spend on makeup??.. i mean just for 1 eyeshadow or blus..etc..cause u said u don’t buy cheap makeup liek the bodyshop..and i can’t even afford body shop cosmetics…=)..

man! u talk alot at the beginning…

where do u get all that money to buy these stuff.. u must be rich!..

anw, its quite an awesome collection

cheers~

so what do you do for a job to afford all this makeup? lol

I felt like replying None of your damn business LOL but I was nice! I thought the LOL at the end was a nice touch!

woahh…..i want your makeup. each of those eye shadows are like 13 dollars!! your probably broke huh. ahahaha.

How do you afford all your goodies?! They amaze me! x

Wow! How do you afford all that stuff? Do you have a mac pro card? Either way, that is still a lot of money! I saw your stash videos. I would love to just have like a fraction of what you have!

No I don’t but damn I WISH I did!

How mutch money did all the stuff cost must have been really expensive? But everything looks so yummy and delicious!!

How do you afford to buy high priced cosmetics at one time? and do you have a mac pro store near you?


They are equally fascinated with how much I talk and aren’t shy of telling me in rude terms how much I talk:

Comment:
you really do talk a lot. icon neutral
but great stash

This one has a an irritated smiley at the end! I guess my talking really pissed her off! The nerve of me! Talking in my own videos!

Comment:
WOW u talk alot!!!

Folks are also very fond of telling me that I giggle too much, I say ummm too much etc….

Comment:
u sat “ummm” alot in this video omg lol

Well I guess you get the idea! And you can imagine that one of the main reasons I don’t do videos (and am slowly fading out FOTD pictures) anymore is because of all this drama! It’s sincerely too much of a headache to monitor comments on youTube and take out time to reply to what I consider some seriously weird comments. I’d much rather spend that time here with you guys interacting, discussing cosmetics, and just having a generally good time!

Strangely enough this post wasn’t inspired by youTube. It was actually taken from the fact that I’ve made a guest starring appearance on a few forums this week. Pictures of my stash and my self were taken from here and placed on a forum. Some of the comments were good ones but some were downright scary from what I saw. I actually wasn’t upset by anything that was said (I’ve been dubbed the “fat girl” on the forums it appears) because over the past year of blogging the written word and blogging video I’ve grown such a tough skin that none of this fails to shock me anymore or hurt me for that matter. It interests me that people find me so fascinating that they want to rip me a new a**hole without every getting to know me as a person! But oh well..to each his or her own! My take on it is I’m still the same old person I was yesterday and I’d personally never say or do anything that these people do and I take pride in that. I’m a generally nice and good person and I sadly fail to expect the same in people lately but I defiantly treasure those who have the same type of heart that I do!

Hope you enjoyed my foray into youTube!

Do feel free to comment minus the OMG WHEREZ U GETZ TEH MONIES FOR DAT!?

Hehe!

Cheers!

PS Do remember that I love each of you and 99.9% of the comments I get on Musings of a Muse are awesome so do keep chatting to me and commenting! I love hearing from each and every single one of you!

Lestat’s Return: Babblings of an Un-Cosmetic Nature

lestat.dieyoung

Here’s one for the Lestat fans (there have to be one or two of you out there in cosmetic land).

It appears Anne Rice is returning to her roots and giving Lestat some much needed air to breath, he’s been buried up in his tomb for far too long and many of his fans miss him (the Muse does!). Anne Rice spoke to Time Magazine recently and promises one more book for Lestat.

It interests me she’ll be breathing life back into Lestat but I fear for Lestat’s return as from the article’s tone it appears Lestat will be released back into the head storm of Anne Rice’s religious hurricane (I’m an atheist, no I’m not, yes I am, no I’m not!)!

If you’ve been buried under a rock for 12 years or you’re just not a big reader you probably haven’t noticed the lack of blood dripping from Anne Rice novels as of late. That’s simply because Anne Rice is no longer an atheist and “re-found” the catholic church. In short terms, this meant she’d buried the Vampire Chronicles and ‘the evil” it created for her and she’d take on the new adventure of writing about Christ’s life. I can’t make this stuff up it’s all completely true. A lady that was writing about Sleeping Beauty in Bondage a few years ago is now a hardcore Christian…I dunno..whatever floats your boat I guess…stranger things have happened right?

I haven’t been a fan of Anne in a while in all honesty. Her work began a downward spiral a very long time ago and Lestat had long since lost his ability to speak to me since…god…who knows a very long time ago.

I’ve done my duty, as a good fan, and read through everything she’s put out (with much difficulty) over the course of the last several years. Reading Memnoch was at times comparable to root canal surgery with a rusty drill!

I guess we do that from time to time with someone we love reading (King is a good example). We fall under the illusion that the next book out will surely recapture the intense feeling we experienced when we originally read the author’s first book. But it’s never really the case is it?

Lestat’s return won’t happen for a few more years yet I imagine (even the article states as much) but I’ll keep some sort of hope (not a high hope…) alive that he might make a colorful reappearance in her next novel! Who knows maybe Lestat will learn to communicate on the same level with Anne that he used to before Anne went off on her trip to Never Never Land without him.

The Muse looks forwards to the gentleman vampire’s return (even though my gut tells me it’s going to be a very weird trip)!

Cheers Lestat de Lioncourt! High hopes for one last big bang before you disappear off the literary circuit for good.

By the way if you’re really missing the goth you can always appease your hunger by reading Christopher Rice’s dribble…that’s not quite root canal surgery…it’s more alone the lines of brain surgery while you’re fully awake!

Yay!

Hard Gay Coming to a Bento Near You!

You might already know I have a little obsession with bento art. This translates as me browsing Japanese blogs for good bento lunch ideas. I came across a rather awesome blog of amazing bento packed lunches! One in particular really had me laughing!

BEHOLD:
030407GayLeatherBento

Hard Gay in your bento!

Do you love it?

Sincerely the resemblance is uncanny don’t you agree?

The cuppa tea I was sipping while scanning through this blog is now dripping happily down my monitor as when I seen Hard Gay shaking his thing in a bento box it was either laugh and choke or laugh and spray. I decided it was best to laugh and spray!

Bpal: Neil Gaiman Selection Updates

neil%2520gaiman

A little bird whispered into my ear about possible updates to the Neil Gaiman Selections on Bpal.

If you’re a collector of Bpal or just a general fan of Gaiman this may be exciting to you!

If you’re unsure what Bpal is have a click over here for some info! If you have no idea who Neil Gaiman is you suffer the dire consequences of possibly being kicked off my blog permanently, ok maybe we’ll forgive you but just this once! k? k.

The Muse worships at the shrine of Gaiman so anything Gaiman related is always great!

The little bird told me about a scent being released entitled Snow, Glass, Apples. Oh Joy! My heart literally stopped when I heard this! Can you imagine such a blend as this? I’m picturing something cool and refreshing with bits of fruit and and a beautiful underlay of ozone! Snow, Glass, Apples was written over 10 years ago and is a twist on the age old story of Snow White. I actually have a copy of it that was purchased from BDP at the time. I believe, don’t quote me, you can find a few copies laying around on Amazon that collector’s are selling if this is something that interests you. In all honesty if you’re not a Gaiman fan you’re sincerely not going to want to shell out the money for a copy so maybe stick to his newer works that are readily available and about.

The good news though is now you can purchase a perfume oil that captures the story! I’m very eager to hear if this is true. According to my little bird it appears that the scent was available at Bpal Will Call. Whether it was allowed to be purchased I’m unsure of as the details are foggy but it does seem that the Gaiman selection on Bpal at the moment, which consists of 7 blends, will be updated soonish!

Weeeeeeee!

I have high hopes for this new blend because really the ones available at the moment aren’t entirely Muse approved.

In other Gaiman related news…The Graveyard Book is completed! Squeal! Around 12:55pm (UK Time) yesterday Neil updated his blog to say a few nights ago he completed the book and is now busy tweaking it (CLICK!). Needless to say I’m excited!

A new perfume oil, A new book, a new film (Coraline is being released in 2009)…..A great start to Monday morning me thinks!
