Disney’s “I Am A Princess” Commercial

5 Oct


Growing up, what I loved about the princess movie classics is that they taught me we’re all beautiful and we all deserve happiness. And of course, life isn’t always fair. The more current ones taught me that just because you don’t fit in doesn’t mean you don’t fit in. And that we’re all capable if we believe.

So now that I have a daughter, who is now two, I am curious how she will feel about princesses. In the last couple weeks she has expressed an interest in Disney Princesses, particularly Rapunzel from Tangled. Because she doesn’t talk quite well, I am unsure what is drawing her in. I think it may be the pretty dresses. She is really into fashion. But I am unsure if it something beyond it.

After watching the spot, I think it is cool to redefine princess through a modern Kate Middleton lense, but I don’t quite understand why we need to call all girls princesses and why they need to believe they are.

I feel like the values in this spot are important. And just because one has these values doesn’t make her a princess. It makes her a good person. My daughter is not a princess, but she exhibits some nice values sometimes. Like her compassionate moments where she snuggles with her baby sister. Her passion for exploring when she tries something new without being afraid. Her clapping and support when she sees her big brother do something great. She is not a princess. I will not call her that. Her name is Stella.

Gatorade Commercials

9 Apr

I love poetry. And I love the rhythm, flow and beauty of this Gatorade spot called “Wooden Poem.” Coach John Wooden has a great voice. And I really like the message of setting an example.

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. – John Wooden

I’d rather have a lot of talent and a little experience than a lot of experience and a little talent. -John Wooden

Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It’s courage that counts. -John Wooden

Gainesville, Virginia is no longer BFE

9 Dec

What was once a changing point for stage coaches is now a modern day suburbia. Long gone are the days of farmland and wide open spaces. Today, Gainesville, Virginia is transforming into a place thousands of people actually want to live.

With the influx of new businesses and shopping centers, residents no longer need to drive to Manassas or Fairfax to get stuff. They can stay right in their neck of the woods.

In the near future, Gainesville, Virginia will be getting even more shopping centers, including:

JOHN MARSHALL COMMONS (Between Rt. 55 and Catharpin Road)

Coca-Cola Special Olympics Commercial

Everyone loves Michael Phelps. Especially Visa.

19 Aug

Michael Phelps is the greatest Olympian of all time. Period. Check out these nice Olympic commercials for Visa starring Michael Phelps along with Morgan Freeman as the announcer. Damn, his voice is awesome. I also found a Michael Phelps mobile phone commercial. Not as nice, but for all you Michael Phelps phans, I know you can’t get enough of him.
