Review: “50 Shades of Grey” (film)

  I know what you are probably thinking. “Michael! You said you weren’t going to see or review this movie” blah blah blah. And yes that is very true. I did as a matter of fact say that in my “Shades of Restrictions” article (see here) that I would most likely not be seeing the film itself as I really had no desire to see it/didn’t really interest me.

Make Mine Name in Music (Song Lyrics Special Edition)

  So I recently saw a fun post on Instagram that made me smile and think at the same time.

  “I don’t have a dirty mind. I have a sexy imagination.” So a certain movie based on a popular best-selling book is hitting theaters this weekend just in time for Valentine’s Day. A very…..let’s call it charged….film named “50 Shades of Grey” based on the novel of the same name by E.L. James. The novel and the film (which just for the record involves the story of business magnate Christian Grey and his relationship with college student Anastasia Steele)…

Song Lyrics – “Coming Home” by Skylar Grey

Welcome to yet another edition of “Song Lyrics”. You may be seeing these a bit more often with my goal of getting two entries out a week and these are extremely fun and easy to write along with the longer and usually more in depth entries I write along side them.
