Down To The Finish Line--Farewell 2011

As I contemplate what I've accomplished this year, I feel elated.
Strides have been made in completing more videos. I also began a Facebook 'Like' page, a blog (besides the Tumblr which I've had for many years), a Zazzle account, and added to my friends near and far! *waving & blowing kisses at all of ya!*

The highlight of my year was Mooki moving in with me along with our pet Dino--it's so awesome to be a family.

As you can see from the photo above, there is still more of the puzzle yet to complete.

Where is 2012 going to lead me? What are in the missing pieces?

Who knows for sure---We Live The Mystery!

During the holidays, I've been so busy bringing joy to others, and so I've not had much time to post. And then I begin traveling again in February, so once again my posts may be few and far between. 

Thank you for your support, love and friendship! 

Together we'll make 2012 an amazing, transformative year.

Joy To The World

My absolute favorite season of the year is the Christmas season. 

Thanksgiving is dedicated to gratitude, but Christmas is known as the Season of Joy....and since I call myself a 'joyoligist', it's only natural that this holiday is my favorite.

Joy carries a high vibration...jubilant...ecstatic happiness....and it comes from the Heart. Joy effects our physical health and impacts our immune system. Quite simply, joy is the best emotion to cultivate in your life in my humble opinion, and it is the energy of joy which I intend to convey in every photo, video, tweet and post.

However, if you don't want to look at my silly, smiling face or read my posts, there are many ways for you to cultivate your own joy.

Here are my 'joy' tricks which always work:

 Smile or look at another smiling person or animal. Yes, animals smile! My dog smiles all the time. Srsly.

Watch a funny video or comedy.

Hang out with people or animals which make you laugh & feel good about yourself. 

Create something. It doesn't have to be a creation for can just be for my silly photo shop creations, for example.

Give freely of yourself in as many ways as you can dream. Giving has been proven to bring intense joy into your life!

Keeping a positive flow of joy in your life is one of life's great adventures. I'm going to do my best to contribute to this flow of joy in 2012, so stay tuned.

Of Kitsch and Christmas

For a long time I've been a big fan of kitsch. It teams up so well with Christmas decorations, and together they go together like salt 'n pepper. 

For those unfamiliar with the term 'kitsch' I'm kindly giving you a link here. 

Now that everyone understands my respect for this art-form, you also need to understand that I think kitsch is quite amusing, so amusing that I love to give & receive kitschy gifts as well as add a bit of kitsch in my home environment. 

You either love or hate seems there is no middle ground.

How do you feel about kitsch? Are you a lover or hater?

Happy Holidaze

Hey, it's me again--Biker Blond! We FINALLY had our family Christmas photo taken today.....we've been eagerly awaiting our photos. But you know how it is at this crazy time of the year--the holidaze--when everyone is so busy!

How do you like the festive reindeer antler accessories?

Many people are extra grinch-ier this year, and I understand why with the economic climate becoming dicier by the day. There is a growing group of 'Anti-claus' folks--humans who wish to avoid everything tainted by Christmas commercialism. Here is the definition as written on Urban Dictionary:

" Anti-claus--

Leader of the forces waging war on Christmas.
Anti-claus dropped an IED down my chimney Christmas eve, but the package smelled of hummus so I didn't open it."
There is a super funny song written about these kinds, "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch". Thurl Ravenscroft sings this song with the perfect growl. 

Mooki, Dino and me send our Christmas Cheer to all of you who have made 2011 a spectacular year for us! We've made so many new, amazing friends through YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and this blog. We are blessed beyond measure!

Stay goofy, light, and silly...and stay tuned for more of the same from us in 2012!

Bikers Gone Mad

Speaking of images (as I did in my last post), one of my earlier films, "When The Moon Calls" didn't help my image nor did it fare well at the box office. The reviews were overwhelmingly positive though. 

Here's a few of them:

"The roster of Bruce Willis's leading ladies is formidable, but in Crowe's new film, "When The Moon Calls", he faces his toughest challenge yet: a teenage biker with a big chip on her shoulder."
Chicago Sun Times

"Derek (Willis) is a vainglorious braggart, a liar, a bully, a self-righteous, frustrated director who opts to escape on a sci-fi road trip straight to madness." New York Daily

"Crowe's third film "When The Moon Calls" is a relentlessly funny 
biker spoof set in the 1960's. Biker Blond steals every scene from the seasoned actor Willis with her charm and unconventional allure." Miami Herald

The RunAmuck Mud and Music Festival may have been inspired by this movie. Or so I've heard through the rumor mill. Wink.
