Seductive Smells by AB for the Boyfriend

July 13, 2008 Leave a comment

Here’s something that will make you go, “Hmmmm”.

A couple of weeks ago, the BF was at Walmart with his brother and calls me up. He asked me what was the name of the Antonio Banderas cologne that I wanted him to get. I told him the one called “Antonio”. It was actually his own idea at Christmas time when he saw all the commmercials for Antonio’s “Blue Seduction” for men on TV. But, I agreed whole heartedly. I would have been a fool not to. Needless to say, but I was glad and very, very, very surprised. It was on clearance for $13.50.

“Antonio” and “Blue Seduction” both smell wonderful. Which brings me to the reason for this post. Friday night, I went to Rite Aid and saw that they have both colognes packaged together for only 21.50. I would have bought it, if I had the extra money. I would love to smell both on the BF but not at once, of course.

Antonio was in New York on July 10 to launch his “Blue Seduction” cologne for women. If it smells half as good as the men’s, I will definitely be buying it. I don’t wear a lot of perfume so when I find a fragrance that I like it’s quite significant for me. Right now, my favorite fragrance to wear is “Goddess” from Avon.

Forums revisited

May 5, 2007 1 comment

A while back, I had a bad experience after joining a web forum that was dedicated to Antonio Banderas. I had been polite to everyone and had never posted off topic. I thought I had been a model member. In my signature, I put links to my 2 blogs and said something to the effect of, “Come gossip with me at Celeb Circus“. One of the members, took great offense to my posts about Melanie Griffith and made a lot of assumptions about me. He blasted me in a post on the same thread that I had posted because he was stupid enough to think that my signature was a post. Of course, he then went back to his regular forum and bitched about the whole episode. I know this because I found the other forum in my referrer stats. He left out a lot of the truth by telling his twisted version of the story and accusing me of deleting or altering the post that I had made. The admins would have a record of deleted posts in the forum files if they know how to find things like that. This person decided that I had no right to say anything bad about Melanie and that I should support her because she makes Antonio happy. First, this person assumed that I didn’t like Melanie at all and that I said things about her that were untrue because I was jealous or something. Second, he presumed to tell me how I should think. Third, he thought it was ok to police what I do outside of that forum. So, I private messaged him because I didn’t think that a public fight was appropriate and other members shouldn’t be dragged into it. Apparently, it was one of most heinous things that I could have done. How dare I PM him and tell him that he had no right to yell at me. In the end, I asked one of admins to delete my account and she asked that I please reconsider my request. So, I did. His post was taken down and the admins ruled that it is not their right to police what people do outside of the forum. I am still not quite accepted at the forum so I don’t post much. No one except this one person has been publicly rude to me instead most act like I don’t exist. I would never, ever join a forum that limits what the members can do off of the site. That policy is too much like Big Brother. Watch out, we’re watching you. That kind of thing. I wish I had thought to say this stuff when this went on. But, as usual, I think of good things to say after the fact.

Almost all of the stories that I use on Celeb Circus are known fact. I don’t use a lot of paparazzi photos and I don’t slam celebs like a lot of other sites do. I don’t see anything abhorrent about what I post. If it’s not your cup of tea, don’t come back. It’s that simple. People don’t have to like what I post and they don’t have to like me but don’t tell me what I can and can not do when you have no right. I am a free thinker. Just because a friend of mine or someone that I love likes something does not mean that I have to like it.

Have you ever had a bad experience with a forum? Did they try to police what you do outside their forum?

5/6/07 – It seems this post has suddenly become very popular. *waves at all the Banderas fans visiting from BB*

Adding to my AB movies

March 15, 2007 1 comment

I’ve been slowly adding to my Antonio Banderas DVD movie collection. I bought Benito, Never Talk to Strangers and Mexico Trilogy (featuring Desperado and Once Upon a Time in Mexico) around Christmas time. My mom bought me Benito and The 13th Warrior for Christmas. Now, I have 2 copies of Benito and I have yet to watch it. I recently saw part of The Mambo Kings on one of the movie channels. After I got my tax return, a few weeks ago, I bought Take the Lead, The Legend of Zorro and The Mask of Zorro from Amazon. I’m not sure which movie that I want to buy next. Maybe Two Much or Miami Rhapsody, which I have never watched. I really liked Two Much despite his wife being in it. I had to admit they both did a great job in the film.

Could it be?

I am not sure if it’s really him but I may have inadvertently found Antonio Banderas’ MySpace page. If it’s not him, then they are doing a very good interpretation. I’ve translated the blog entry and also some of his comments left for others. I do think it’s him but you never know. The stance that he is doing in his myspace profile pic is that of a bullfighter. He said that in a comment to someone, that they were the only one who picked up on that. 🙂
