Gavin Mikhail

Posted by Janelle Tuesday, June 23, 2009



The beautiful piano arrangements that heavily drapes the music was the first thing that captured my attention towards this low profiled indie artiste. Possibly mistaken as your recent American Idol, Kris Allen, this pretty boy pianist has the singing chops of the sweet American boy but the piano playing skills of Sir Elton John.

Gavin Mikhail is not a rockstar, but he is your humble artist that you should look out for. This self proclaimed not-rockstar has his own blog where he discusses non musical things and shows the down to earth side of him. His intelligence and his eagerness in music could be clearly displayed in his blog and MySpace page where he actively communicates with his fans.

Playing the haunting melodies in his self composed songs such as Days Gone By and God In This Moment, he has distinct lyrics composition that touches hearts and souls.
We predict he will be one to look out for in the future!;)

Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen

Posted by Janelle Monday, June 22, 2009

After seeing the trailer being played over and over everywhere...we were pretty excited to catch this movie seeing that it became such a phenomenon after the first movie. Also the amount of publicity it got as brands after brands using Transformers for its marketing campaigns.
Imagine how we were even more stoked when United International Pictures decides to give MyPurpleJournal tickets to watch its premieres tonight (*big shout out to MPJ reader, Janet! It was really fun catching this premiere with you and your friend tonight!). As you can see, we just came back from the premiere and is really excited to tell you, our readers all about it!


The battle for Earth has ended but the battle for the universe has just begun. After returning to Cybertron, Starscream assumes command of the Decepticons, and has decided to return to Earth with force. The Autobots believing that peace was possible finds out that Megatron's dead body has been stolen from the US Military by Skorpinox and revives him using his own spark. Now Megatron is back seeking revenge and with Starscream and more Decepticon reinforcements on the way, the Autobots with reinforcements of their own, may have more to deal with then meets the eye.

-synopsis from IMDB.com

Well that about sums up the plot with deeper plot revelation in between, continueing the Transformer phenomenon that started in the first movie. The second movie is a direct continuation of the first movie with all the same casts from the first with additional new characters and new Transformers.
This one definitely has more humour, even though they may appear to be too intentional and PG13 but they were funny nonetheless. While you can expect funny moments from Shia LeBouf and his co-stars, even the Autobots have their funny moments with Bumblebee bursting into diesel tears at one point.


We HAVE to mention our favourite transformers in the movie, a pink and green little autobots, who are technically twins, seeing that they were identical and also their compatibility. They were fantastically awesome and absolutely the cutest thing we see!! That you have to look out for.

Technically the movie was pretty awesome, with more destructions and explosions compared to the first one. However, the transformations of the Robots were a little too confusing seeing as they were too upclose or the camera directions were confusing. This somehow made the fighting scenes quite a blur at some point. Perhaps Michael Bay could have done a better job, but it was still a good job nonetheless.


I definitely enjoyed myself very much as did the rest of the movie goers at the cinema seeing that an applause broke out as the credit rolled. We at MyPurpleJournal definitely recommend this movie eventhough you may have to be quick in booking your tickets seeing as the tickets are already being pre sold! We smell that this might be a HUGE boxoffice movie!

Ratings: 4/5

Are the "Shoulders" coming back?

Posted by Janelle Saturday, June 20, 2009

Ever since we noticed Gweneth Paltrow donning a blazer over her atrociously expensive dinner gown, there are more and more people sporting the blazer over dress style. And we? We absolutely love this trend. I personally love the whole funky androgenous look on a girl because of the spunk and edginess it exudes but this formal slash edgy combination absolutely blew us away.
However, lately, we do notice that the trend is slowly evolving...well, to be heavier at the shoulders. Remember those horrible horrible shoulder pads you used to loathe?

Okay fine, that was harsh, we actually don't really have strong feelings against shoulder pads but we think, that might be coming back.
Photobucket

Look at trendsetters Ashley(Or Mary Kate) Olsen..(We can't really differentiate the two) sport that vintage shoulder heavy dress, and the whole blazer over dress look! It's all over tinsel town!
Photobucket

We can't say if we love the trend...but...we're definitely digging the blazer over dress thing!

Our advice?
Invest in a good ol long sleeved fitting blazer. It will come in handy for most of your evenings.

ps. If you have any great fitting blazers stocked in your shops, do holla at us!
