1. "Hell on Heels" - Pistol Annies


2. "Takin' Pills" - Pistol Annies Really weird but also catchy.

How 'Contagion' Should Have Ended... SPOILER ALERT!

Well you guys I have been SUPER PUMPED to see Contagion. I mean blood, guts, a deadly virus, plus Jude Law and Matt Damon? Hello! I'm there! Well what a letdown. This movie could have been the freaking bomb. Well they should have consulted me on the ending because I would have rocked it.

WARNING: SPOILERS!!!



1. The Epidemiologist and The Hong Kong Guy

How it Ended: ?? We Don't Know. She runs away from some dude when she finds out Hong Kong Guy received placebo vaccine's for his village.

How it SHOULD have ended: They should have fallen in love and raised lots of Hong Kong Babies

+


=LOVE

2. Kate Winslet

How it ended: She be DEAD

How it SHOULD have ended: She lives and meets and marries Matt Damon


3. Dr. Cheever (aka Laurence Fishburne)



How it ended: He's a good guy. He gives his dose of vaccine to the janitor's kid and goes about his merry way. We assume he ends up okay but the movie doesn't really show anything further.

How it SHOULD have ended: Dr. Cheever should have been the bad guy. Hands down. This movie should have been a perfect plot for corruption at the hands of Dr. Cheever! Honestly he should have known something about the vaccine having bad side effects and that's why he gave his dose away instead of him just being a nice guy. Then Kate Winslet and Matt Damon could have uncovered the plot and Jude Law (with his jacky teeth) would have caught him and saved the world!

Now THAT would have been a movie!

Really Jude?

Which brings us to number 4.

4. The End

How it ended: Bananas.


Yes. Freaking bananas caused the virus that killed half the world. That's it. A bat ate a banana and dropped it then a pig ate it, then the pig got killed then a chef was cooking it then he touched Gweneth Paltrow..who is a skank.

That's what you get for cheating on Matt Damon you whore!

How it SHOULD have ended: See above plot of Dr. Cheever plot with Kate and Matt and Jude to the rescue.

Five Songs...


1. "She's Like Texas" - Josh Abbott Band


You know I love me some Texas and some country singing.. my love for this song is pretty self-explanatory. It's been on repeat in my car.



2. "Ashes" by Andy Brown

I don't know if ya'll watch the amazingness that is 'Rookie Blue' but Andie and Swarek finally hooked up last week to this song and it was super hot and this song is super beautiful.



3. "Run" - Taylor Swift cover of George Strait

Um hello. Do we even need to talk about this?



4. "For Good" - Wicked Cast

Okay I just got around to watching the Glee Finale and this song was on there and I usually love me some Glee covers but nothing can possibly compare to the original so I'm bringing it back! This is literally one of the most beautiful songs of all time, if it doesn't make you cry you have no soul.



5. "When She's On" - Chris Young

Let's just round it out with some more country with more Texas references! Woot!

Serving Life.

Ok so on Saturdays, I like watching documentaries. Sometimes. When I run out of trashy things to watch on my DVR. Anyways, There is one that ya'll should watch. Like right now. Go to your DVR and schedule to record it. OK!?

This one is called "Serving Life". It is part of OWN's new documentary club (go Oprah!) and honestly it is so touching. From OWN: "Serving Life documents an extraordinary hospice program where hardened criminals care for dying fellow inmates. Narrated and executive produced by Academy Award®-winner Forest Whitaker, the film takes viewers inside Louisiana's maximum security prison at Angola, where the average sentence is more than 90 years."


There is quite a bit of controversy since the main characters are prisoners serving life for things like murder and seeing them in roles of caregivers and redemption might be hard for some people. I was touched not only by the way that the inmates cared for their fellow dying inmates, but for the ingenuity showed by the prison warden in coming up with ways to rehabilitate prisoners, dropping violence by 73%. I am like the world's biggest Hospice supporter so this doc was especially touching to me. The way that the men care for each other, even sewing blankets for the hospice patients, you will be glad you watched it.



Ok now go set your DVR's!
