Beauty: Smooth As A Baby's Bottom

Don't you wish you had skin smooth as a babies bottom??? I do! well....when you put it that way it doesn't sound to attractive but come on, who wouldn't?! There are millions of home remedies making there way to the web but you always have that question in the back of your mind..Does this really work? I've tried a few and I want to let you in on a secret of mine for flawless skin!

Its simple and very inexpensive, all you need: ground coffee, honey, baking soda, 1 un-coated aspirin and water.

Your saying ASPIRIN?? yes aspirin, let me explain.


The salicylic acid in aspirin removes dead skin cells while conditioning the skin and is also used in lots of acne treatments. So if you don't know, NOW you know.

No worries!

Sounds easy enough right?

Ok so here's the scoop



- 1/2 cup lukewarm water.. place un-coated aspirin and let dissolve.




mix in drops of water with ingredients below until paste is made




- Add ground Coffee







- Add about 2 spoonfuls of honey





- 1 spoonful of baking soda

After it turns into a paste apply over full face and rub in circular motions. Leave on for about 10 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water. Splash face with cold water to close pores.

Remember to MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE!

FILM: THE ARTIST (2011)

In a post from back in MAY 2011 covering the Cannes FIlm Festival I wrote about a new, silent film, THE ARTIST, which was making its debut on the French Riviera. Well, PURSE & PULSE has done it again. This initially obscure, black and white film is now the talk of Hollywood and probably up for a best picture nomination. It's already captured the NY Film Critics' top honors. This love letter to the silent era was directed by Michael Hazanavicius and takes place in Hollywood, 1927. Silent movie star George Valentin wonders if the arrival of talking pictures will cause him to fade into oblivion.

With the advent of talking pictures, silent movies had faded into oblivion.
Who knows now--LOOK OUT!

Film: Transmedia Part II

Here's a good example of how transmedia is developing in Hollywood:

Maverick filmmaker James Cameron, Fox Studios (distributor of Avatar franchise) and Disney have struck a global licensing deal so Disney can build rides and attractions to give fans the opportunity to explore the world of Pandora first hand, coinciding with the release of the two Avatar sequels in 2014 and 2015. Disney has done this in the past with the Indiana Jones and Star Wars franchises, so it seems like nothing new. But just imagine being twelve again standing next to a blue, giant Na'vi. Given the technology today, I think it will be pretty cool.

New Music: Miranda Brooke

Bu Vision/Def Jam Records Executive Bu Thiam, who also happens to be Akon's brother, recently let the world in on his new discovery. Miranda Brooke is a talented R&B singer who hails from Chattanooga, TN and preparing to warm the hearts of music enthusiasts. Her debut single "Hater", produced by Sham (Sake Pace) is a mid tempo jam that addresses emotions some of us do not often admit feeling.

"It's a song about ugly feelings," Miranda tells. "It's about jealousy, insecurity and weakness... but it's honest."

Film: The Filmmaker's Handbook

It sounds like a cheesy, 'how to', book title. But when I started film school this was the bible of all things technical related to film. I still have my original copy and my intention was to introduce you to it, so I went online (to get a screenshot) and discovered the updated addition (pictured above). If you are shooting regularly with Canon DSLRs, the RED, ARRI digital cameras, etc...or considering shooting on actual film, these authors know what they are talking about. Now take a look at the title page and then move your eyes down to the subtitle which reads: A Comprehensive Guide For The Digital Age. Awesome oxymoron!

Here's the original (which I also recommend).
