Adele

adele2 adele

I. Love. Adele. The first time I heard her voice, I fell in love. I had never heard music quite like hers, so beautiful and soulful. She truly has one of the best voices in music today, if not THE best. All of her songs are amazing and filled with great lyrics. It’s hard to choose a favorite song because I love each and every one of them.

Some of the videos posted below are from her live concert DVD “Adele: Live at The Royal Albert Hall” and her voice is better than ever. I love when singers sound better live than they do on their albums because it shows that they have actual talent and are true artists. This is exactly what Adele is- a pure and genuine vocalist.

Here are some of my favorite Adele lyrics.

“My Same” from the album 19 (2008)

“I thought I knew myself, somehow you know me more
I’ve never known this, never before
You’re the first to make up whenever we argue
I don’t know who I’d be if I didn’t know you”

“Crazy for You” from the album 19 (2008)

“And every time I’m meant to be acting sensible
You drift into my head
And turn me into a crumbling fool.”

“Take It All” from the album 21 (2011)

“Nothing is better than this
And this is everything we need.”

“One and Only” from the album 21 (2011)

“You never know if you never try
To forgive your past and simply be mine”

“I’ll Be Waiting” from the album 21 (2011)

“You know my heart more than I do,
We were the greatest, me and you”

My Cousin Vinny

Whenever someone asks me what my favorite movie is, my response is always My Cousin Vinny. Starring Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei, this film is a classic in my household. I can’t even imagine how many times this movie has been quoted in my house. There have been countless times where my family’s dinner conversations consisted solely of My Cousin Vinny quotes. I’m serious, this happens all the time. It’s just one of those films that every scene is hilarious and better than the one before. I’ve seen this movie so many times, yet any time it is on television, I have to watch it. It’s a great movie to watch when you want to laugh and it truly never gets old.

I narrowed down my favorite quotes to just a few, but I’m serious when I say that every line from the movie is worth quoting.

Vinny: You stick out like a sore thumb around here. Mona Lisa: Me? What about you? Vinny: I fit in better than you. At least I’m wearing cowboy boots. Mona Lisa: Yeah, you blend.

“You’re famous for your mud? How’s your chinese food?”- Mona Lisa

“A burp is spontaneous. A burp is not romantic!”- Mona Lisa

“You  f***ing shower, I’ll get your f***ing suit!”- Mona Lisa

“Were these magic grits? Did you buy them from the same guy who sold Jack his beanstalk beans!?”- Vinny

Vinny: Dead on balls accurate? Mona Lisa: It’s an industry term.”

“You can’t win a case by yourself, you’re f***ing useless!”- Mona Lisa

“This is a tough decision. Get my ass kicked or collect $200. Let me think. I could use a good ass kicking, I’ll be very honest with you. Nah, I’ll just go with the two-hundred.”- Vinny

“Imagine you’re a deer. You’re prancing along, you get thirsty. You spot a little brook. You put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water. BAM! A f***ing bullet rips off part of your head. Your brain is lying on the ground in little bloody pieces. Now I ask ya, would you give a f*** what kind of pants the son of a bitch who shot you was wearing?”- Mona Lisa

“Oh shit, honey, you got it! The case-cracker! Me in the shower!”- Vinny

“Is there anymore shit we can pile on to the top of the outcome of this case? Is it possible?”- Vinny

What do you think of My Cousin Vinny? Any other fans out there? Would you want to display any of these quotes, or other quotes from the movie, on the walls of your bedroom or movie room? Leave me a comment with your thoughts!

Grey’s Anatomy

greys 7

I’ve been watching Grey’s Anatomy since it started in 2005. There is something about this medical drama that always seems to draw my attention. As the seasons have gone on, the story lines have become increasingly dramatic, albeit sometimes ridiculous, and I keep coming back for more. I think the thing that I love most about this show is the writing. I love the mix of serious and witty dialogue that a lot of other dramas just do not feature. But my true adoration of the show is the narration at the beginning (and sometimes the end) of each episode. The narration is not entirely specific to the show itself or the characters, like other shows such as How I Met Your Mother or Sex and The City. The narration is there to provide the audience with something to think about before the episode starts. It generally sets up each episode and is usually inspirational and uplifting. It is a great way to start off the show each week and gives the audience something to think about passed the events of the episode.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the show, both the narration and dialogue.

“You know as well as I do it’s not about what you look like, or your job, or how successful you are. It’s about having people in your life that you love and who love you. That’s all that matters.”

“The expected is what keeps us steady. It’s the unexpected that changes our lives forever.”

“We don’t wish for the easy stuff. We wish for big things. Things that are ambitious, out of reach. We wish because we need help and we’re scared and we know we may be asking too much. We still wish, though, because sometimes they come true.”

“Ask most people what they want out of life and the answer is simple- to be happy.”

“Sometimes we learn something new about the past that changes everything we know about the present.”

“Knowing is better than wondering, waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, most intractable mistake beats the hell out of never trying.”

“The truth isn’t where it ends, that’s just where you begin with a whole new set of questions.”

“Mistakes are painful, but they’re the only way to find out who we really are.”

“If you look around, things are pretty amazing. So stop for a second, enjoy the beauty, feel the magic, drink it in. ‘Cause it won’t last forever.”

“Fresh start, clean slate, a world of possibilities. But no matter what new adventure you’re embarking on, you’re still you.”

“Pick Me. Choose Me. Love Me.”

Ingrid Michaelson

album-girls-and-boys  ingrid  everybody  HumanAgain

One of my favorite artists is Ingrid Michaelson. I recently saw her in concert and she puts on one hell of a show. She’s funny and charming and effortlessly adorable. She interacts with her audience in a way that most artists do not. She really connects to her fans and knows what they want to hear. To top it all off, she can ACTUALLY sing and play music. She truly has the voice of an angel. Don’t you hate it when you go to concert and the artist cannot sing live? It’s always such a disappointment.  With Ingrid, however, you get your money’s worth.

What I love most about her music is the lyrics to her songs.  They are all so honest and filled with emotion. When I think of a true songwriter, I think of Ingrid Michaelson.

Here are a few of my favorite songs by Ingrid Michaelson and my favorite lyrics from each song.

“Breakable” from the album Girls and Boys (2007)

“and we are so fragile
and our cracking bones make noise
and we are just
breakable, breakable, breakable girls and boys”

“You and I”  from the album Be Ok (2008)

“don’t you worry there my honey
we might not have any money
but we’ve got our love to pay the bills”


“Soldier” from the album Everybody (2009)

“and so it goes, this soldier knows
the battle with the heart isn’t easily won”

“Blood Brothers” from the album Human Again (2012)

“cause we’re all the same under a different name
we’re all blood, we’re all blood, blood brothers”

“Parachute”  (2010)

“just hold on to me, i’ll hold on to you
it’s you and me up against the world it’s you and me”

Mean Girls

mean girls poster

It is only fair that I start my blog off with the movie that I catch myself quoting the most. That, of course, is Mean Girls. I pride myself in the fact that I can quote this movie from start to finish. It’s almost impossible for other people to watch it with me because they would rather hear the actors talk instead of me screaming the lines at the screen (crazy, I know).

I’ve been quoting this film since it came out in 2004. I don’t know how she did it, but Tina Fey, the screenwriter of the film (and all around genius), was able to write a script that provides the world with endless amounts of lines to use in their daily lives. The movie is a somewhat realistic, although exaggerated, depiction of every high-schooler’s life. I think this is why it’s dialogue can be quoted in any situation. Yes, I do mean ANY situation- happy, sad, funny or serious- the perfect quote is out there!
