  1. You're welcome Dayna! Glad to be of assistance. I am thrilled that GALS has now become involved with this worthwhile organization. I adopted a soldier through SA, and the feeling of knowing you make a difference in a soldier's life is the greatest feeling in the world. I am glad that GALS will experience it as well. We take so many things for granted sometimes and forget to say thanks from time to time. No matter how busy I will be, I plan on sending a note, care package or whatever it takes for my soldier to know I appreciate all he does for this country. I am also a member of the SA website; my nickname there is TiaraXtreme, and I do hang out in chat over there some nights. The people are really helpful with answering questions and providing assistance whenever needed. Rock on GALS! Tiara
  2. Washington, Nov 3 (ANI): Angelina Jolie and actor Wentworth Miller are the 'Ultimate Hotties' in Hollywood according to a new poll.

The results rolled in after a month with Jolie taking the top spot in the ladies' category and Miller taking the top spot in the gent's category. Among the women, coming in second was Raquel Welch, followed by Marilyn Monroe in third place. Rounding off the top five was Jessica Alba and Monica Belluci who came in fourth and fifth place respectively. Among the men, Miller was followed by Christian Bale in second place and Josh Holloway in third place. Paul Newman came in at fourth spot with Gerard Butler and George Clooney taking the fifth position. The top ten list for the Ultimate female Hottie of All Time as per EW is: 1. Angelina Jolie 2.

  3. NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - Ask men to name their 10 most stylish peers of the past 50 years and it's unlikely handsome movie stars favored by women like Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise will show up. But Sean Connery? He gets major points because when it comes to style, men judge success, confidence, maturity and class more than good looks, according to GQ Magazine. The magazine has come up with a list of the top 10 most stylish men of the past 50 years, which features former boxer Muhammad Ali, actor Jack Nicholson, basketball player Michael Jordan and President John F. Kennedy. The others to make the list are actors Connery, Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Johnny Depp and Al Pacino, as well as quarterback of the New England Patriots Tom Brady. Three-time Super Bowl champ Brady, at age 30, is the youngest. Jordan and Depp are in their 40s, and the rest -- excluding Kennedy, of course -- are all over 60 years-old. "This is the list of men that men would like to be. You have to be more than just a handsome face," said the magazine's style editor Adam Rapoport. "Style goes beyond clothes. It is about how you carry yourself -- and there has to be some weight to the guy, some integrity, some gravitas. Everyone in this list had to have a genuine sense of personal style." GQ editors chose the 50 most stylish men from five decades of cover subjects for a special 50th anniversary issue of the magazine that caters for men. The list, which included actors, politicians, musicians and sportsmen, was then narrowed to the top 10, which appears in the issue on newsstands this week. The editors did not rank the top 10 although Rapoport said many people would argue Sean Connery should be No. 1. "Sean Connery as James Bond is the ultimate man's character, the blueprint -- dashing, witty, handsome, well-dressed with the fast car and the gadgets, who can kick some arse if he wants to," said Rapoport. "These are other men that men can admire and relate to. There are lots of pretty faces out there that women find sexy but this is for the guys."
  4. Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet! Thank you for this; *sigh*...he is so adorable...
  5. He looks so happy and rested! Thanks for posting this!
  6. I think Abby had to shake him to the core to help him understand the pain he caused her. I snapped my fingers two times. Maybe they might do a sequel and let him get payback on both of them...LOL
  7. I always heard the sweetest stories about her; she will be missed. My deepest sympathies to her family, friends and GALSistahs who knew her well.
  8. Where do I begin? Getting a life I am pretty sure as I type I do recognize that we do have a life; and it is even more satisfying because of my association here with GALS. I have learned more about others by the sharing we do here. Yes, we agree to disagree; seen that, engaged in that, however, I have also seen my life become even more blessed by the friendships created here. And it is not the "We are only friends when we are together on the site, PM'ing each other" feeling that exists on OTHER sites. This is family here. Through my Fandom, I met Landa, who as far as I am concerned, must have been my sister in another life. No joke. We have laughed, cried, screamed in girl delight because we can literally finish each other sentences now. I would take a bullet for her; anytime, day or night. You mess with her, you mess with me first. I can see her in my life 20, 30 years from now and for this fact, I am thankful she is a part of my life. Through my fandom, I met Songbird, who has the biggest heart of any Diva I have ever met. She has taught me patience and I thank her for that in my prayers. You know, we do a toast from time to time: "May you live 100 years, and me one day less, so I will never know that you have left my life." I hope she will sing 'Ave Maria' at my funeral. Her voice is a gift from God. Through my fandom, I met Dr. Em, who is my second mother now, who inspires me to be the best person I can be, who can be my worst critic and my best friend. She is my agent and manager; I cherish her, because she is loving, kind and considerate of others. She gives until it hurts. Dang, I am trying not to cry here...I always believed in angels, but I always thought angels existed for other people. Not me. Until I met Dayna. Dayna has given me back FAITH. She has also helped my father, because if you have not seen a picture of Dayna, SHE'S HOT! I emailed a couple of pics to my father and now he not only has a crush, but finds it extremely difficult to sleep now. hmmm...I wonder why. I know my mother is smiling down from Heaven, because no woman has ever made my father smile this much! Hubba Hubba! I can't wait to introduce Dayna to my father when we all get together in Las Vegas! Through my fandom, I met Zanyzombie, and she is that Diva who when you fall, will dust you off, laugh that you fell and make you realize you have a friend for life. Through my fandom, I met DawnS. You know when you are having a bad day and you don't want to bring your drama here so you just sneak off alone and deal with it? Well DawnS is the one who sends you a PM, checking up on you and hugs you tight, and believe me, you feel it through the computer. Through my fandom, I met Swansong. I don't think there are enough words to describe the impact she has had on me, so I will say it like this: open up your Webster's Dictionary, find the word phenomenal, and if you look real close, her picture is underneath it. That's how I feel about her. She has the most loving nature and when you have gone through life feeling broken, she heals your heart. If I ever grow up, I hope I can have even 1/2 of the wonderful qualities she does. Through my fandom, I met LeslieD, my Author Diva Sistah. She was sweet enough to share her life with me, so much so that I wrote an article about her books. I am so proud of her! She has the funniest sense of humor I have ever seen. Through my fandom, I met MsNomer. I can see me and her defending ourselves to a judge because we partied too hard and got arrested...LOL...beautiful person, beautiful soul. Through my fandom, I met Moonglow. I think in a previous life, she was a sheriff and I was her deputy. Moonglow has taught me, and it will be a shock to her when she reads this, a sense of purpose. She gives me a peptalk and believe me, I do listen. Through my fandom, I met Cleobethra. I will erect a statue of her likeness and worship it daily because of the inspiration she provides. She makes me smile so much. Her comments are hilarious. I have to make sure I don't read some of the posts here at work, because I laugh out loud. I have other sisterfriends here I love very much, Stacie-in-Nebraska, DiscoveringMe, HeIsMyGSpot (yeah, I know she is saying who me?), Big Mike, because he makes you glad to be a woman...LOL...Hobbes, Marissa, TheBlonde, whom I truly adore because I bonded with her mad quick, there are so many others here...so I hope you understand what I am writing. It is amazing to me that those who point the finger and judge, are the ones least likely to be able to look at themselves in the mirror. This site rocks! I love it here. I have so much fun here. We are now going forward; and it is not just a fan site any longer. We are empowering other Divas out there and we must realize that we make a difference. We pulled it together, got that petition going and our voices were heard. Now that to me is POWER. The convention next year...is going to be amazing! In ways you never dreamed possible. As long as we are together, nothing can stop us. We don't need an endorsement or an appearance from GB; we represent him by our kindness and love for each other. GB is everywhere. SO IS GALS. Love you much, Tiara
  9. Yeah 3:10 to Yuma; they are throwing a lot of commercial air time behind it I have noticed. I just want to see how bad they have redone this movie; this was a classic that starred Glenn Ford, if I am not mistaken.
  10. Hey PALS and GALS, We made a difference! That in itself is something to be proud of. They listened...somewhat. They could have easily said forget the petition and the phone calls and emails. So feel proud; I know it seems wrong as it can possibly be, but we proved our point. For the life of me, I will never understand what they were thinking, but I will gladly take this. There is still a part of me that wants an explanation, but I don't think that will be happening anytime soon. Thanks to all who participated and provided online support and spread the word.

  13. By DAVID BAUDER, AP Entertainment There's something to be said for consistency — go to Farm Aid and you see John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson, Neil Young and Dave Matthews. For this year's inaugural show in New York, they'll be joined by Counting Crows, the Allman Brothers Band, Montgomery Gentry and the Derek Trucks Band, among others, Farm Aid announced Wednesday. The concert will be held Sept. 9 on Randalls Island, an island just east of Manhattan. "I've always felt we should do it in New York because New Yorkers consume so much food," Mellencamp told The Associated Press. "I think everyone was kind of waiting around for an invitation and we finally got one." Nelson, Mellencamp and Young organized the first Farm Aid in 1985, figuring one year would be enough to convince the government to adopt policies to help family farmers. "We were naive," Mellencamp said. Farm Aid, which has raised more than $30 million over the past two decades, has evolved into an organization that helps small farmers in financial crisis and promotes organically raised foods. Farm Aid hopes next month to have the first major concert with all local, family-farmed food served. Farm Aid has been reaching out to the big cities recently. Last year's concert was in Camden, N.J., just outside of Philadelphia, and Chicago was the host in 2005. Nelson and Young have performed at every show, with Mellencamp missing only one when he was recuperating from a heart attack. Matthews, who performs this year in tandem with guitar wizard Tim Reynolds, has been on the bill regularly for more than a decade. Guster, Matisyahu and the Ditty Bops are among the newcomers this year. The Ditty Bops have just completed a green-themed tour where they rode bicycles to different venues across the country. Warren Haynes and the Supersuckers are also on the bill. "If people eat, they should come and support Farm Aid," Mellencamp said. __ http://www.farmaid.org
  14. By Thomas K. Arnold When times in home video get tough, the industry has a way of finding a lucrative new revenue source. Now that DVD sales have flattened, a growing number of industry fingers are pointing to premium-priced gift sets of popular movies or TV shows, packaged in fancy boxes and commanding hefty price tags. "Collector's sets are a half-billion dollar market, with revenue growing at a nearly double-digit pace," said Jeff Brown, senior vp television and family product at Warner Home Video. "Core fans of popular franchises will buy the sets if they deliver on value." Brown points to Warner research that shows that while DVD sales overall are in a slight decline, sales of the high-end gift sets are up 7% for the year so far and expected to climb further because 72% of sales occur in the second half. Gift sets first began popping up several years ago, with such early entries as HBO Video's complete series set of "Sex and the City," packaged like a hardbound book and listing for $300, and Universal Studios Home Entertainment's "Scarface Deluxe Gift Set" ($60), housed in a faux leather box and including such trinkets as a Tony Montoya money clip and a set of collectible lobby cards. But lately the trend has accelerated, with handsomely boxed complete series sets of such popular TV series as "Friends," "M*A*S*H" and "The West Wing," as well as elegant movie gift sets like the complete collection of "Superman" movies that comes in a tin case along with a reproduction of a vintage Superman comic book and a mail-in offer for five movie posters. All 125,000 copies of the "Superman" tin sold out. Warner has done so well with its gift sets that it is picking up the pace this year, offering no fewer than 14 sets before Christmas. On the TV side, the studio has complete series sets of such shows as "Gilmore Girls" (coming November 13 for $260), "The O.C." (due November 27 at $200) and "Full House" (hitting stores November 6 at $170), the latter packaged in a replica of the sitcom's trademark row house. On the movie side, highlights include a five-disc collector's edition of "Blade Runner" packaged in a gray metal briefcase ($79) and a boxed set of all five "Harry Potter" movies so far, which comes in a suitcase and includes five collectible silver-plated bookmarks, available exclusively with the DVD. The "Potter" set will be available on DVD ($119) as well as both next-generation formats, Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD ($149).

  16. I love CQ. Thank you so much for posting this. And I LOVE Darren Barefoot! Been a reader of his for quite some time.
  17. Cool! Temperance in the Past position. A card in the left position indicates what has happened to affect your question in the past. Moderation, patience, and diplomacy. Consistent behavior. Successfully mixing two different attributes of the personality. The balance of passion and reason guards against extremes. The art of bridging the spiritual and mundane worlds. The Lovers in the Present position. A card in the middle position indicates what is affecting your question at this time. The blossoming of a valuable and balanced relationship intimate though not necessarily sexual. Mutual understanding and deep emotions. Harmonious flow of energy lending a sense of ease and comfort. Trust and free will. The Priestess in the Future position. A card in the right position indicates your questions future. A deep stirring within the self. A subtle but powerful connection with the collective unconscious or world soul. An inspired state of being. Surges of wisdom that benefit any creative endeavor, artistic, esoteric, or scientific.
  18. Harm Gerry's reputation? Absolutely not. Help it immensely by helping Hollywood understand a incredibly strong fan support base? Without question. It was not his idea; it was mine. In the minds of the Hollywood suits, and only because I know it like the back of my hand, the word "fan" is short for "fanatical". It is as though we are expected to just show up, spend money, pay their bills, buy their homes, and they owe us nothing. A lot of people think that way. Like we have no say in what we expect. However, I believe in the power of fan presence. Research the fan following of Frank Sinatra, or Elvis Presley. That lasts to this day, long after they're gone. Now imagine if everybody just gave up; said forget this, it is not going to help. Fans are fickle; we can change our minds with the quickness. Without fans, you have NOTHING. Perhaps that is what we need to do? Give up, just buy DVD's without seeing them, make our home entertainment systems everything we need to replicate the movie theatre experience. Perhaps that is the way after all? Just do as we're told...yeah maybe that is the best route.
  19. It never ceases to amaze me when others can become the end all, be all voice for fans. The reason for the success of the 'Jericho' petition was because of fan involvement. CBS wrote that series off; fired all the actors, actresses, directors, producers and writers. It took one fan, Dave Murphy, to start everything. Dave, like myself, did not expect a reaction at all. Well, he definitely got one. Fans had the bulletins on MySpace, similar to the way we have it here. The first 1,000 signatures were sent to CBS. They weren't impressed. Then the next 1,000 then the next. Then CBS got nervous. Dave then took it to the media; then CBS contacted him directly. Asked for him to understand that they knew best. Dave thought differently. More signatures showed up; then as the last effort and keep in mind the media was watching that petition pretty closely, Dave had 30 lb. bags of nuts delivered to the executive offices. Daily. CBS had enough; the fans were ready to boycott their programs; shareholders were not happy either. CBS gave in and brought the show back to their programming roster. This is where fan involvement makes a difference. Now, you will have those naysayers, thinking they can speak for Gerry, Pierce and Maria and say oh no, we shouldn't be doing this; Gerry will be upset. Let me tell you this much; the day any actor or actress does not expect their fans to speak up and say no Lionsgate, we don't appreciate you sending this straight to DVD and expecting us to buy it without enjoying a visit to the theatre first, then the days of fan appreciation is coming slowly to an end. What Lionsgate wants to do is push the younger fans to go and see 'Bratz' and buy their merchandise and everything that goes along with it. Get ready for a lot of movies to go straight to DVD. But for Mr. Steve Beeks, President and CEO of Lionsgate, to announce that this film was going to DVD and that's all there is to it, I say no. So do a lot of others. I like seeing GB on a big screen; I like to think that my hard earned dollars was well spent and that this enables GB to be that A-list actor for the movie studios to offer better scripts to. Now, I don't believe that sending a film straight to DVD helps. It makes it appear that perhaps these 3 stars were not bankable enough for the movie studio to push the film for wider release. For the negative people who are so afraid of becoming involved, and think like this is the greatest sin in the world to stand up and be counted, I say I respect your feelings and opinions. There are just too many things going on with this film and for Lionsgate to not offer the fans any type of explanation, that to me, is an issue.
  20. Here is the link to sign the petition: http://www.petitiononline.com/11132007/petition.html We have received signatures from fans of both Mr. Bronson and Ms. Bello on the petition. Because we originated it from here, of course, the majority of the sigs are from GB fans. I do not know of any petition from Mr. Brosnan's site; and there is no official Maria Bello site.
  21. This petition will be ongoing; Lionsgate is aware of it. They do check it since the first 1,000 were submitted. I have engaged in various email correspondences, as well as phone calls. Things are happening; whispers have gone about. I am glad everyone was notified of this; and the petition stays up. I don't want to say too much, but there are things going on behind the scenes with GB GALS assisting and it is a great feeling to have so much support. Whether it ends with a theatre release, I have no idea. But the fans have spoken, and they are listening. So, was it successful to do this? Yes, it was. Did it make a difference? Absolutely. However, I don't believe that over 1600 signatures will be enough. Which is why all fans of the 3 actors are making sure the message gets across the globe. Thanks for asking, Tiara
