Happy Birthday Hilary Duff!

It's already been 9 years since we first heard of this beautiful newcomer that time. she taught us the joys and pains of tween hood in Lizzie McGuire. she caught the heart of a Football-playing prince in A Cinderella Story. She brought her dreams to life in The Lizzie McGuire Movie. We all enjoyed her singing in her albums starting with Metamorphosis. She became an older sister in her own right in Cheaper by the Dozen 1 and 2.

Now, she's becoming her own, um, self in Gossip Girl. The girl we're talking about is Hilary Duff.

There's a lot of roles she did in her lifetime than any other teen star when she began at the age of 13. now, fast forward to this time, no other teen star has ever reached the pinnacle of what she has done. to date, she had a successor in the name of Miley Cyrus, who recently did what she did already years ago, and now, Miley's the same level as her. all because Miley admitted that Hilary was her idol, and the reason why Miley was there today, thanks to Hilary.

now at age 22, she's ready to go follow her contemporary Anne Hathaway with more challenges awaiting her. Hil has done the climb, and she's now in the top of the mountain of fame.

Hilary was the benchmark of teen star excellence for later teen stars like Miley, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, and many others. in fact, Hil was the "good girl" of teen stars in her time before they have arrived to where Hil was today.

In fact, in celebration of Hil's b-day month, Disney Channel re-released Lizzie McGuire to a whole new audience to see what they've been missing about the girl that started it all.

So on your 22nd Birthday, cheers! Happy 22nd birthday, Hilary Duff.

Here's a fan video about her to celebrate her birthday:

Review of "The Time of our Lives"

This is my first review of an EP that I happen to stumble upon. This is a Walmart-exclusive EP made in conjunction with Miley Cyrus' clothing line, also another Walmart exclusive.

So let's check out the songs:

1) Kicking and Screaming: this song is originally a song by Ashlee Simspon and is a cover from Cyrus herself. The song is good but it has the angst from an old song of Hilary Duff's (just forgot what the song was). This song shows Miley's perfect emulation of the said song, right to the vocals.
Song rating: 4.5/5

2) Party in the U.S.A.: this song tells Miley's roots until she made it big in the entertainment industry. According to her, she said that it's an All-American song and represents where she came from, notably the state of Tennesee. the song also mentions Jay-Z and Britney Spears, two of her idols. (In the Teen Choice airing of this song, she mentioned Michael Jackson in the 2nd part of the song, ommiting Jay-Z and bringing Britney to the 1st part of the song) Oddly enough, it didn't mention her mentor/predecessor Hilary Duff. maybe no more space? XD

(Note: The song was also invloved in controversy due to Miley's "pole dancing" brouhaha in the Teen Choice '09 (see my opinion of it in a past post) but the music video makes up for the mistake. This song is also used in the CM for Miley's clothing line.)
Song rating: 4/5

3) When I look at You: The song actually gives an in love feeling in it. The said song will also be in the OST for "The Last Song", a movie adaption based on Nicholas Sparks' novel. The Music Video of it, which was leaked then later seen by October, shows her and fellow co-actor Liam Hensworth in scenes a bit reminiscent of Sparks' previous movie adaption, "The Notebook".
Finally this song sounds like a Celine Dion song, only younger.
Song rating: 5/5

4) Time of our Lives: A bit reminiscent of Hilary Duff's "Wake Up" but more of a tamer version of it. The song also has a reference to her Hannah Montana song "Life's what you make it" in the chorus. It kinda makes me remember Miley Stewart and Oliver Oken's friendship way before the dreaded Loliver romance.
Song rating: 4.5/5

5) Talk is Cheap: A catchy song comparable/equal to the song "The Math", only with a feeling of a fight scene of two best friends against lots of teen bullies. (I thought of that when this song was on, a reason for it XD) But the song kinda does show a mature side of Miley in this one. kinda.
Song rating: 5/5

6) Obsessed: Another ballad from Cyrus in this EP, it shows that when you're in love you end up, well, Obsessed. (That's why it's the title of the song) another masterpiece from Cyrus as she belts out the effects of loving someone to the point of thinking about him/her. The song feels like a Sheryl Crow song also. Now if only it was released as a single and a music video, too...

(Note: there was a rumor that the last line in the song in whispers says "Come back Nick", but Miley said she never wrote such a lyric in the song. if you hear carefully, she whispers "I want you".)
Song rating: 5/5

7) Before the Storm: Miley with Nick Jonas in it. need I say more?
Song rating: 4/5

Total average: 5/5

Well there you have it. the review of "Time of our Lives". a must get in your nearest Walmart. Highly recommended for all Miley fanatics.

If this was real...

From just the fanmade ad itself, it kinda looks real. If that was to happen, it'll be called "Obsessed by Miley Cyrus". you know, from the makers of "With Love... by Hilary Duff". If that was to be made.

Two for the price of one this weekend.

Today on Rescue Fire 1-X debuts. he resembles a bit like Knight Fire from Solbrain with a hint of AbareMax from Abaranger. Tomorrow, The Kyoryu Origami from the Shinkenger movie "The Fateful War" makes it's first TV appearance.

Now that's two time the toku overload for the price of one!

Tomica Hero Rescue Fire: later @ 7 am JST on TV Tokyo
Samurai sentai Shinkenger: tomorrow @ 6:30 am JST on TV Asahi

My two cents about Miley's "pole dancing".

Well, as a fellow supporter, I know it's been a month when it happened. that bit of controversy. that thing they called "in bad taste". well, what am I saying? it's about the boo-boo in the Teen Choice '09, during the performance of "Party in the USA" which the song itself was cool.

If you guys still don't get what I mean, It's Miley Cyrus' "Pole dancing".

To me, she just got off-balance. boys might/may have liked it. others hated it. critics bashed it. some called her a slut or sorts. to me, I liked it, and it wasn't a bad thing because I believed she just lost balance by accident. not to mention haters/opponents of her said she looked like a stripper. to me, it's just the way she dressed for the performance, and I don't find it bad, Might as well say she's well, a bit hot.

Weird thing is that her daddy, country singer Billy Ray, liked her performance. I mean, it's coming from a father of a 16-year old teen sensation. and yet he likes it? woah. now that's what I call a thumbs-up from a parent.

This is now past. forget about it. I'm just giving my two cents regarding this controversy that I bet many boys (either her age, under her age or early 20-somethings) took advantage of. get over it!

she maybe doing stuff the wrong way to some, but if Hilary Duff was to see this, she might be either impressed or not. but that's another story. (She's in her 20's now, so no clue.)

(Closing note: it would have been better if she did it to the tune of Paradiso Girls' "Patron Tequila" than that song, don't you think? XD)

Disney took Marvel, and now this.

Well Disney bought Marvel Enterprises, and just recently they bought Wideload Games, the makers of the Halo game series for the Xbox. looks like The Walt Disney Family is growing bit by bit. I'm just waiting the day they buy Toei Company (or at least own half of it) to bring Tokusatsu to everywhere in the world... (Excluding you, Power Rangers. you did too much damage.)
