And who would’ve not miss him? Michael Jackson is so talented that his existence (minus some of his weird acts) will surely mean more great things ahead for the international music scene. This might mean more great compositions, collaborations, concerts, songs etc.
But since we were surprised by his sudden passing, we will have to be contented with what was left with us. Of course there goes his songs which we can play non-stop to relieve us with what we miss, watch his concert videos countless times but that’s it. He’s gone.
Aside from that, Johann and I talked about how this will affect the life of his kids. The world became aware of his challenges in his relationships. He got married twice, and these union(s) became complicated. He might not have a blissful, simple married life because of his status (and all these complications which are now buried(?) upon his death, but I wish that everything will be well. At least for his kids who deserve peace and happiness, with or without their parents beside them.
When I was a kid, enjoyed playing video games. More especially Johann. He told me how much he enjoyed games such as Contra, Super Mario Bros., Final Fantasy, and many more. He used to have a Nintendo Entertainment System, a Sega Genesis/Megadrive, Sega Game Gear, Game Boy, the first PlayStation and now PlayStation Portable.
While he didn’t always have the latest games during those times, he would however go to video game arcades with his brother and some classmates. I could just imagine how much fun they had back then.
But with the increasing violence in video games, is it still a good thing to let children play these games? I’d say yes, but only if we select the games they will play. Of course we should not let small children play with first-person hack-n-slash games and shooters that display gallons of blood. We need to be our own game censors when it comes to these things.
Anyway, here’s a picture of the Nintendo system that I and my boyfriend used to love playing.
If you’ve been online today, you may have read that news on Yahoo about naming Ben and Jen’s baby. Personally, I like their chosen name for their little one, Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck, named after certain group of angels.
I believe that names identify one’s identity and somehow affects how people perceive your personality. But I’m specifically against using odd names for babies like Xyrtx or giving very long first names. Imagine how that poor baby will learn writing her name if he needs to tire himself writing a 26-30 character names right?
If we’re going to have our own babies after the wedding, we will choose a name that’s easy to spell and pronounce like Mary Noelle for a baby girl. If it’s a baby boy then we have to think of another one.
How about you? What are your personal rules in naming your little ones?
