    And just for fun...that's my bf's chihuahua at the beach. Isn't she a cutie!?

  2. I gave all my Barbies away years ago but i still keep the first one my mom gave me for Christmas. I remember it came with this cassette with music from the 50s.

     

    What i wanted the most was this house that could fold into a little suitcase you could take anywhere. I loved those kind of houses!

  3. I used to collect Hello Kitty stuff when i was in high school.

     

    I still have the bags i used for school, tons of pencils and stickers which was what i mostly collected. I gave the other stuff to my little cousins who enjoy them as much as i did. :)

    Thats about it; I love No Doubt. And yes, Gwen has a beautiful voice, and like Nas said, she would be the prettiest girl if she had bigger boobs.

  5. I don't listen much to christian music but there are some bands that i like like P.O.D...I love the song they have in the Matrix Reloaded soundtrack.

     

    I also loved to the Supertones, but it's been really long since i don't hear about those guys so i don't know if they're still around anymore. :(

     

    I like to listen to Plus One too; they're like this N'Sync type of group, they have beautiful voices.

     

    I think that's about it :P

  6. MIAMI, Florida (AP) -- Tens of thousands of mourners lined the streets Saturday to pay their respects to salsa legend and Cuban exile Celia Cruz, weeping at her casket but also celebrating her music and shouting her trademark phrase, "Azucar!"

     

    "This is Celia's day. She is the personification of Cuba, the free Cuba and the future Cuba," said Roly More, grandson of singer Benny More.

     

    The number of people paying their respects Saturday was estimated at more than 75,000. The line stretched for 15 blocks at one point for the viewing at the Freedom Tower -- the Ellis Island of the Cuban community, where immigration officials processed more than 500,000 Cubans who fled Fidel Castro's government in the 1960s.

     

    Cruz, 78, who recorded more than 70 albums, died Wednesday of a brain tumor at her home in Fort Lee, New Jersey.

     

    She won best salsa album for "La Negra Tiene Tumbao" at last year's Latin Grammy Awards, and won the same award at this year's Grammys. Her other best-known recordings include "Yerberito Moderno" and "Que le Den Candela."

     

    Many mourners held roses, some waved Cuban flags and most tried to shield themselves from the sun with umbrellas or floppy hats in the Cuban national colors of red, white and blue. Many yelled Cruz's catch phrase "Azucar!" or sugar.

     

    Among those in line was Nila Alvarez, 68, who said she first met Cruz in Havana, where the singer thrilled nightclub crowds in the 1950s.

     

    "She was always an idol, as a person and as an artist," Alvarez said.

     

    While there was much weeping at Cruz's open casket, whenever the mood became too somber inside the tower people erupted in cheers, chanting "Celia, Celia." They clapped their hands to her music, blaring through speakers.

     

    The casket was surrounded by white and purple flowers, as well as American and Cuban flags. On one side, Cruz's husband, trumpeter Pedro Knight, stood dressed in black with other family and friends.

     

    Even after nine hours of public viewing, several thousand people were left unable to view the body when the doors to the Freedom Tower were closed to prepare for the procession to Gesu Catholic Church, where a memorial Mass was celebrated Saturday night.

     

    Cruz's casket, wrapped in a Cuban flag, was loaded onto a limousine led by men in white shirts carrying a statue of the Virgin Mary. Onlookers tossed roses at the slow-moving procession as Cruz's family and friends walked behind the limousine.

     

    Mourners included Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Latin music star Carlos Vives and Latin TV talk show host Cristina Saralegui.

     

    Across the street at the Estefans' Bongo's restaurant, celebrities and political and business leaders waiting for the procession ate sandwiches and croquettes as they remembered Cruz's influential 50-year career.

     

    "She's inspired everyone in this room," said Jorge Moreno, a Miami-based Latin pop singer who performed with Cruz. "I always looked at her like a grandmother."

     

    Cruz came to the United States in 1960, a year after the Cuban revolution. She became so popular in Miami that Calle Ocho, the main street running through the city's Cuban community, has the honorary name of Celia Cruz Way.

     

    Cruz's body was to be returned to New York on Sunday. On Tuesday, a funeral Mass was set for St. Patrick's Cathedral.

    This article is old; it's from last Saturday but it explains very important stuff about Celia's life. So i decided to use it in case some of you were interested in knowing a bit about her life.

     

    A movie of her life will be made and Whoppi Goldberg will play Celia. The movie director, Marcos Avila, has said that he would like Samuel L. Jackson to play the role of her husband Pedro Knight.

     

    This woman was marvelous; her music will definetly live on.

  7. So has Hermioninny given up on SPEW (or whatever?)

     

    I was kinda hoping she'd be the one to die (in a rather violent manner).

    Hermione :P

    you don't seem to like her much, do you? :lol:

    and no she hasn't give up s.p.e.w...she spent this school year knitting hats and scarves for the elfs to find.

  8. thank god i didn't read this topic before i finished the book :evil:

     

    anyways, the book was great!! i cried so much! :cry:

     

    this book is the best so far. i loved the new characters (Tonks was my favorite), getting to know the Ministry of Magic, St. Mungos, Neville's parents...i'm won't talk about anything else so i don't *spoil* it to anyone who hasn't read it yet :wink:

     

    anyways, the book is awesome i had a lot of fun waiting at Borders for the midnight relase, met loads of people (most of them over my age :D ). it was like a new year party! :lol: 8)

  9. i just heard that they checked 76 of his bats and didn't find cork in them.

     

    maybe he was telling the truth by saying he picked up that bat by mistake. but i guess that's not gonna save him from getting punished for using it.

  10. like it?? i love it! :)-

     

    i believe that movie is Miyazaki's best movie and even after Spirited Away i still consider it his best work. don't get me wrong, Spirited Away was beautiful, but nothing like Princess Mononoke.

     

    that movie is unique, its a work of art! ^_^

  11. it was a hard choice but i decided for Ducktales.

     

    i love to sing to all those songs. :)-

     

    before i had cable, i watched those cartoons in Spanish and the songs had the same rhythm and everything so it wasn't so hard to get used to the English lyrics when i got the cable installed. :D

  12. i had it pre-ordered and when i went to pick it up today they gave me a poster :D

    this movie is gorgeous! but i think it wasn't as deep as Princess Mononoke, it had its sentimental stuff but not as P. Mononoke, but i still loved it, the art of this movie is beautiful.

    its definetly become one of my favorites.

     

    go and buy it!! :P

  13. i was scrolling down the site and i had to stop to see if i read it right :lol:

    i was like, "a music forum?"

     

    anyways, honestly i don't have an all time favorite band but right now on my favorite list are Linkin Park, No Doubt, Lit and 3 Doors Down.

  14. the wonders an Oscar does.....

    i read today that Spirited Away was going to be released in 800 theaters around the US :D

    one thing that worries me is that even though it will be released in 800 theaters nationwide not many people will get a chance to see it....that sounds like a few theaters compared to the "mega" releases other Disney movies have..... :roll:

    but at least it's getting the recognition it deserves, not all of it...but after this, it will get a lot more 8)

  15. i don't think the books should be considered for kids anymore for what i've seen and i don't think anyone's too old to read Harry Potter :wink: it has caught the attention of kids and grown-ups as well, and i do find them a bit short :-?

    i heard that the 5ft book is going to be much longer and more mysterious though, besides of that death everyone's so anxious to find out about.

    i can't wait to read it!

     

    the covers of the book are out, has anyone seen them? i personally liked the US cover best. it's the first time that Harry doesn't appear on the UK covers and many people are upset about that (i'm among them)

     

    here's a link to site that show's the covers :wink:
