Sheet Music+Chords August 8, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jess! :) @ 3:12 pm

Hi everyone! As you probably know, I play piano. I like to sing while I play piano. When I sing and play piano, I play chords. When I just play the song, I do it with sheet music. I have found two awesome websites to make that very easy and get it for free!

1st website: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/

On this website you can pick any song you like, then get the chords to it very easily. You can print it out. Also, say your a beginner, so you want it to be easy. There are many different versions of the song with the chords! You get to pick which one you think it best for YOU! Also: in the name its Ultimate GUITAR. Chords are always the same. You can play those chords on the piano too, and it works out fine.

2nd Website: http://classpiano.com/

This website, I only found recently. 2 days ago to be exact. This website gives you printable, free SHEET MUSIC!!! Totally awesome!!! They change the songs every few days, so it’s never the same thing. You can also watch a video tutorial to get the hang of it!!!

Well, that’s all for now!!! Definitely check out those websites!!!

Fun Fact: A long time ago I posted a video of me singing “Crazier” by Taylor Swift, at my talent show. I sang to it and played piano. I used chords from ULTIMATE-GUITAR.COM and then added my own little rhythms, and look how great it came out!!!

 

Hereafter

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jess! :) @ 2:57 pm

Hey! Watched a movie last night!

Hereafter

Rated: PG-13

About 3 different people/families that are all so different, and they come together at the end. It’s about what happens after you pass away.

One of the reasons I LOVED this movie, is because Steven Spielburgh did the special effects at the beginning! Great!!!

Watch this movie!!!

Here’s the trailer:

Mars Attacks! And The Haunting In Connecticut August 1, 2011


Mars Attacks!

Rated: PG-13

Comedy

Great movie! This movie is about aliens from Mars that suddenly come to Earth and try to conquer the human species.

This movie is a little old, I think it’s from ’96.

It’s a Tim Burton classic. The very funny thing about it, is that many celebrity’s are in that movie, but most of them weren’t really known or famous, so it’s very funny. People such as Jack Black and Sarah Jessica Parker are in it. Try to watch it one rainy day when you want to watch a funny movie!

I would rate it a 4 and a half out of 5 on my movie scale!

Here’s the trailer! :

The Haunting In Connecticut

Rated: PG-13

Horror

This is about a boy who has cancer, so the family move to a house near the hospital, which is in Connecticut. He keeps seeing things in the house they move into, but the doctors just think that it is from the medication and radiation. This horror is a very jumpy movie. The scary things happen right away. Nothing in it is very scary, but since it pops out at you, it’s VERY scary.

It’s a newer movie. I think from 2008 or 2009.

Watch this movie!

I would give it a 4 out of 5 on my movie scale!

Case 39 and Resident Evil: Afterlife July 25, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jess! :) @ 3:28 pm

Watched another scary movie last night! It’s called “Case 39.”  I forget if it’s rated PG-13 or R, but if it’s rated R, it shouldn’t be.

It is about a little girl named Lilly. Her parents want her to die, but for a good reason. (I’m not going to tell you!) A child social worker gets her out of the home with her parents. One part I can give away, just because it was pretty funny in a sick kinda way! The parents tried to put her in the oven and cook her! (LOL! They didn’t suceed though)

I would rate it a four and a half out of five on my movie scale!

It is a really good movie! It’s from last year. Here’s the trailer so you can find out more!

I watched the newest Resident Evil two nights ago. I think it’s called Afterlife.

It’s from 2010.

 I think it was rated PG-13.

It’s really good!

It’s a little more of an action movie than a horror, but it’s still great!

I would rate it a four on my movie scale!

Here’s the trailer, because it’s hard to explain.

There ya go! Please comment! :)

I added them to Zookeeper, The New Daughter, The Relic, and Insidious, so make sure you go back to those and give them all a look!

Post comments, I will be waiting!

“Insidious”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jess! :) @ 2:26 pm

Yesterday, I watched “Insidious.” It is a horror film! It is said to be “The scariest movie since Polterguiest.” I might agree! Most scary movies aren’t very scary, but this one is!

Rated: PG-13

It is about a boy who apparently goes in a coma, but really, his spirt has left his body. The parents think the house is haunted, but really, it’s their son.

I can’t give away too much, but watch this preview!
