Fifty Shades of Grey- Merchandise edition

First off- apologies for not writing for so long, I’ve been ill and still sort of am so there might be big gaps between my writing.

Floop

I’m sure you’veFifty shades4 heard of it, that. “BDSM,” book Which isn’t actually BDSM more like a book of how to be an abusive, yet still sexy and get everyone to want you, partner. BDSM does not involve stalking a person definitely does not involve threats… unless it is a discussed beforehand role playing thing but let’s not get into that… Is now a movie getting released just in time for Valentines day.

There are several discussions of people saying they are going to boycott the film due to it’s, “abusive,” nature.

Ok, if you haven’t heard of Fifty Shades of Grey, this is one of those, “Where were have you been?” Moments, this is the book that has probably produced a generation by it’s self just down to the raw kinkiness of some of it’s scenes, and also spun a highlight to, “What is BDSM?” But as the book became more popular more people began to realise the main man of the series, Mr Christian Grey and the leading female of the series Anastasia Steele’s relationship wasn’t that healthy.

In a short term, Fifty Shades is a book which shows

Fifty Shades3A relationship with no romance but the author still manages to add some form of romance into this dark twisted “love” story by Christian Grey’s weird way of romantically stalking his innocent minded, absent minded “girlfriend”/new friend who should be kept emotionally distant who he can turn into “friend with a lot of kinky benefits”

This is a trilogy so it get’s better…

fiftyshades5

I mean if someone shows you a room, which you nickname, “The Red Room of Pain.” Chances are you know something’s going to go wrong right?

Fifty Shades1

So, Fifty Shades of Grey is a fanfiction (story based off another story) of Twilight- teenage vampire love story, which sort of developed into a complicated relationship.

Like the Twilight movie there is merchandise coming out…

Now Twilight we had t-shirts, key rings etc.

Fifty Shades now their advertisement and merchandise budget must be massive… seriously every time I go out I’m hit by Fifty Shades of Grey on the side of a bus, (I’m not actually hit by a bus or else I wouldn’t be writing this post). Plus I doubt Beyoncè comes at a cheap price however, she now has two songs on the soundtrack. Fifty Shades wine

We have Fifty Shades T-shirts coming out and I had to dig through the Internet before found key rings.

But other merchandise include

  • Jewellery and the tie seen on the front cover of Fifty Shades of Grey.
  • Sexy Knickers and bras or (Lingerie as everyone puts it) of all coverings and comforts (So from you can see that you are wearing underwear to you can barely notice it)
  • Wine, because you know everyone needs a lack of judgment before having sex… Luckily they are bringing in new laws in that area in the UK.
  • Teddy Bear… Now why didn’t they bring out a cuddly Jacob in wolf form for Twilight? But if it’s going to cost £59.12 for a cuddly wolf I think even Team Jacob fans might have passed that.
  • 50 Shades of Fifty Shades teddyEarl Grey Tea… Which is odd because in the book Ana’s favorite tea is Twinnings Breakfast Tea.
  • Baby Grow… One says I’m a result of my mommy reading Fifty Shades of Grey”, Another “My mommy pretends Christian Grey is my daddy” Please take a photo of kids wearing that then show them the photo when they learn what Fifty Shades of Grey is and please get in touch what their reaction was, I have a feeling these baby grows will be like the pink princess dresses every female goth has to deny she wore. Along with the Baby Grow’s there is also Baby changing mats! Who came up with that idea?

These are just some of the odd things out, since the book became popular there has already been the creation of all the handcuffs and floggers so there is no real need to go into them.
Will Well Did you evah be going to see Fifty Shades of Grey at the Cinema?

We might do… although I understand it’s abusive, I also understand that(And I’ve read) there are worse books out there, the only difference is this one has made a lot of hype about its self. Fifty shades2In the end it’s a movie based on a book, Christian Grey was an abused child and I think those who have been through abused childhoods will know you don’t always enter adulthood unscathed but in the end he’s willing to get help for it, he sees a therapist! Which is something we should take into consideration, not that it forgives him. Anastasia Steele is a girl with low self esteem the contract and control Christian first gives her she negotiates which and agrees which shows she has some control in the relationship.

By not seeing the movie the industry is just loosing money, but the news circulating about abuse even if we don’t see the movie, the right message is still getting out there, people can see this movie and know partners can abuse each other in more than one way.

Why 2015 will be a spectacular year

2015 is here guys! We’re all probably looking for holidays, short breaks and just nice things to do for the rest of the year to keep us smiling. This year has some great things in store for us Old Hollywood lovers. There’s also some marvellous stuff in store for all film, fashion and art lovers.

To give you a taste we’re going to run down what we’re looking forward to in 2015… Obviously not everything is here yet, some exciting things will pop up later this year.

Film/ Stage

I’m looking forward to Into The Woods. A mash up of fairytales, songs and an all star cast featuring Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Johnny Depp and James Corden the film is sure to be a hit. Anna Kendrick also returns in Pitch Perfect 2 later in the year.

Katharine Hepburn at BFI Southbank are holding a month katharine-hepburn-portrait-001-00n-7xkof this brilliantly talented woman’s work. I was very excited when I found out about this! Films range from The Philadelphia Story and Adam’s Rib to A Woman Rebels and Stage Door with everything in-between. For the full list visit BFI You can also buy tickets here if you really, really need to. I might even see some of you there.

February also brings the Fifty Shades of Grey film which I hear millions of women are super excited for. Based on the book of the same name it features the very wonderful looking Jamie Dornan. With an 18 rating it’s definitely for the adult audiences. Prepare for sexiness, stalking, no romance, kinky fuckery and a very controlling rich man. It’s due out in the UK on 13th February with tickets available now from most cinemas.

Fifty Shades See you now

2015 sees a brilliant treat from director Maria Friedman who is bringing High Society to the London stage. Old Vic is going to be holding this swellegant, elegant party which will be kicking off on 30th April. As of yet no cast as been confirmed, can’t be long to wait though! Tickets are available here

Two films I probably don’t need to mention, but I’ll refresh your memories, are The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man. Both look like sure hits this year.

Big Hero 6 is worth a mention for an animated film…

Exhibitions

V&A host a stunning looking exhibition of the late, great Alexander McQueen’s work and creative brilliance. Savage Beauty runs from 14th March to 19th July and will be well worth a visit as it’s the largest collection looking back at McQueen’s work in Europe.

Fans of Audrey Hepburn will be flocking to National Portrait Gallery this summer to see their Portrait of an Icon exhibition. NPG have a range of photographic portraits spanning Hepburn’s life. These include fashion, film and philanthropic based photos from a range of photographers.

TV

There’s probably to much happening with TV shows to mention here but here’s a few that caught my eye and/or I enjoy watching.

Supernatural is celebrating it’s 10th birthday this year. It doesn’t feel like two minutes since we met demon hunter brothers Sam and Dean Winchester. Here’s to many more years on TV hunting demons, saving us from apocalypses, getting trapped in hell and singing and dancing for us.

 

Police show Blue Bloods reached it’s 100th show on 9th January. No small feat with the way shows get cut and cancelled these days. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic also celebrates it’s 100th episode later this year when season 5 airs.

37871045I’m excited to see Rizzoli & Isles return for Season 6 and Bitten for Season 2. Both are shows based on books so it’ll be interesting to see which direction they go in. A lot has happened in both series that’s nowhere close to the book so we can’t guess what’s going to happen next.

2015 seems to be Marvel’s year. New comics, Age of Ultron film and the premiere of the tv series Agent Carter. This started in US last week and I’m quite impressed with it. I’m so glad Hayley Atwell as stayed on as Agent Peggy Carter and remains kick ass and a true role model to women.

As shows begin others unfortunately end. This year sees Lost Girl end on season 5. I’ll be sad to see this sexy succubus go but I’m glad we get a proper ending especially after the ending we got on season 4. Bo, Kenzie, Lauren and Dyson we’ll miss you guys!

We’ll keep you updated throughout the year on these and many more happenings in the world of movies, tv and exhibitions. Until then enjoy the vast array of spectacular big and indie films out this year and keep your eyes peeled for other great ways to pass the hours.

This Man Trilogy created and mastered by Jodi Ellen Malpas

*fans face* Just the fact these books were written by a British Lady and it’s set in London makes things better. It makes me wonder if there are people in Britain like these characters and this is possibly based on them.

Three books in the erotic romance, This Man Trilogy-

1- This Man.

2- Beneath this Man

3- This Man Confessed.

The books tell the story of Interior designer Ava O’Shera and Lord of the Manor, Jesse Ward. Just incase anyone gets the impression, it is set in present day London, Lord of the Manor is a name Ava calls him, but he does own a manor.

Ok, this was my reactions to these three books

Book 1- This Man Oh… My… God. JESSE WARD FREAKING MARRY ME… Must get Lace underwear. Also there was a moment were the two main characters, Jesse and Ava went shopping to Camden (London, UK, Planet Earth, The not so edible Milky Way) and I fell off the sofa laughing recognising that the, “Dance wear,” Shop they had entered was probably one of my favourite shops- Cyberdog. Jesse, Ava, Yes there are people out their who wear that stuff. However, as the book ends my reaction turned more into flooding my local boring town.

Stitch Crying

Things get rocky between Ava and Jesse.

And women are- possibly first time in this book- encouraged to keep their -Lace- panties on. Jodi, leaves readers pining for the second book… and Jesse. Oh and in my case, I wanted to know about the adventures of Kate (Ava’s room mate) and Margo Jr (Believe it or not, this is not the guy Kate is having a relationship with, Margo Jr is the new pink van for Kate’s cake business)

For more on this book

Book 2- Beneath this Man– …  

invader zim Mighty need

For this book!

I’m not spoiling anything but this book also put me in the same fan-girling state as the first. Jesse puts himself in a state- Another flood warning, although my town hadn’t recovered from the one the day before- There is a lot of forgiving, in the characters and a lot of heartbreaking in the fictional world Jodi has created and in readers.

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16156709-beneath-this-man

Book 3- This Man Confessed–  Was recently released- Now Spoiler, but I think Jodi had a genius moment when she thought up, handcuffs should be involved at a certain event… For those who haven’t read this before, handcuffs in sex is sort of done before obvious so it’s not in that situation.

Ava’s mother- “Get those handcuffs off my daughter… Jesse Ward, you try the patience of a Saint! Where’s the key?”

Jesse- “Somewhere you’ll never want to venture, Elizabeth.” 

Also, the, “Bad person.” In this series, was someone who had me questioning. And again my town got flooded towards the end of this book… On the other hand, I read some of this book before an interview and got the job, so, for me it’s a lucky book.

…. This man1

Three books later, Fifty Shades of Grey, get out of the top selling Kinky Fuckery (Erotica to you normal people) section

Right I’m trying to decide if I’m going to swear or not. From this book you learn, swearing in front of the Amazing Jesse Ward can have angry and kinky repercussions.

I’ll admit this series is probably not for everyone, Jesse is very controlling and possessive, but in the end I don’t think a romance story can really cover the wants on everyone. It’s not like there isn’t any fight in these books, yes Jesse is possessive of Ava, but she does fight back, she’s not a submissive shy thing. And let’s be honest this is fiction, as much as some people would like, Jesse or someone like him probably will not exist…

The books have their perks and shows over and over and over and over and over…. again why it needs to belong in the erotica section, although I think take all the sex out, you could just put Jesse and his manor in the erotica section and I’d stillThis man 2 buy it. For some readers, it doesn’t just include sex. No, it’s not sex. Jesse, has labels for these different kinds of sexual adventures. Jesse, I have to swear now. There is-

  • Retribution f*ck
  • Apology f*ck
  • Making friends f*ck
  • Reminder f*ck
  • Sense F*ck
  • Truth F*ck
  • Sleepy Sex
  • Celebration Sex

Now, there could be more, there probably is. I just don’t go writing down the different types of sex that happen in these books, if I did the people I live with would be more than worried.

Yeah… we all need a Jesse. Also with Jesse you also get, a countdown, a manor, money, cars, an apartment, Someone who can transport you to, “Central Jesse- Cloud Nine,” super pantie dropping sexiness, a guy with a secretive dark past, and like I’ve said a super possessive guy who will tear up a designer £500 dress in front of you. Oh and with Jesse you also get a continuous ring tone change for your mobile phone!

To go with Jesse, we have Ava, the woman who tells the story- yes this is a first person point of view deal. Ava, is a feisty, well established woman, both career wise and personality. It is though her career as an interior designer she gets to meet Jesse and that is the equation, once you have added an out of this world writer, that gives you, This Man.

I’ve said in the Title that this book was, “Mastered,” By British Author Jodi Ellen Malpas, That’s because I believe this trilogy differs from the others of it’s kind. There are a lot of, ‘woman get’s attracted to rich business man,’ Erotica out there. But it’s not just how Jesse has become a millionaire that differs from the rest- this aspect revolves around the manor and Jesse’s past. Each book provides an emotional roller coaster. There are occasions where your heart may breakDoctor cry

Ok, at some points it does seem like Ava and Jesse are constantly arguing at each other or having sex, sometimes both, but there is something in the books that made me not want to put them down.

This man3

So, if you’re into Alpha-male, erotic romances, give at least the first one ago

In other news 30/7/13

I have been asked to do this again… I think just because the rest of the Well Did You Evah team are glad I actually paid attention to the news last week.

So, This weeks post will feature, Handcuffs, Bigfoot, Lady Gaga and Jelly fish… Before you think of it, no Big foot hasn’t handcuffed it’s self to Lady Gaga and some how a Jelly fish was involved.

1. Handcuffs

SEX TOYS BONDAGE EQUIPMENT ON SALE AT AN ANN SUMMERS SEX SHOP. H

Lots of people have heard the hype of Fifty Shades of Grey? If you haven’t head out to your local charity shop… or maybe not, first think on how dirty minded you are. If you shy away or look in disgust just someone mentioning sex, then stay away. Some time in the past year, possibly a bit longer than that, the Fifty Shades Trilogy came onto bookshops highlighting the world of BDSM- which to be honest has been around a while- and bringing controversy. Taking lessons from the Big Quiz of 2012 we at Well Did You Evah call these BDSM, pantie dropping books, Kinky Fuckery. Apparently, we can thank these books for helping us out of the recession. Fifty Shades

Although Fifty Shades has got to the point of being possibly one of the most popular books in charity shops, and there is the possibility that these other kinky fuckery books are too graphic or something to be on proper bookshelves.  The UK are still keeping up with Kinky practices in the bedroom.

The past 3 years the fire brigade, in London, have been called out to 79 incidents where couples have used handcuffs and lost the key. Now I have two theories on this. 1, they were just so in the moment they lost the key. Or 2, They were secretly hoping a hot fireman/men (more the better) would join in.

What happened to the days where handcuffs came with a spare key?

But the Fire service have also admitted to other strange situations which they have been called out to, one being some man trapped his penis in a toaster… now I’m not sure if I want to know or not.

For the top ten- I’ll admit some of these I wouldn’t class as that bad- http://metro.co.uk/2013/07/29/top-ten-weirdest-objects-london-fire-brigade-has-had-to-free-people-from-3902591/

 

2. Bigfoot

Now, does he- or you never know she- exist? There has been another apparent sighting in Canada. From this video that has made it into a UK newspaper, the figure walking could easily be a tall person. But I guess it depends how much you want it to be Sasquatch.

On Youtube you can find loads of videos of Sasquatch, so by this rate, if Big Foot does exist, he’s either reproduced and has children all over the world or has access to a private jet. Considering his existence is questioned, he’s doing a pretty good job by confusing the human race. This video was posted on the 24th of July so if your on the watch for Bigfoot, get your passport and make travel arrangements for Canada! As for me I’m going back on the hunt for Narnia.

 

3. Lady Gaga

This Super Famous Popstar, responsible for creating songs such as Bad Romance and Poker Face and known for her striking dress sense. Has announced some news that I’m sure her devout fans will be (or will have been) sending her, “Get Well Soon Mother Monster,” cards.

Although she has hidden the news, Lady Gaga was a performance away from a hip replacement. Now I have never been personally to a Lady Gaga gig, but I see from everything she does she puts 100% into her work, so honestly I do want to give her a hug and wish her well. After 6 months she believes she is recovered, although it is thought she would have needed a year, if her injury had gotten worse and she needed a full hip replacement, which would disrupt her tour dates

Lady Gaga again, is showing the world is not only she is she an individual, that people can look up to, but with her own strength, she can over come her illnesses to be there for fans.

Full Story- http://www.theguardian.com/music/2013/jul/30/lady-gaga-hip-replacement-scare

 

4. Jelly Fish

It’s been reported that the UK has seen a rise in Jellyfish on it’s coast. They said it’s down to the warm weather… yes around 7 days of warm weather new animals start flocking to the UK… Does this mean if the UK can keep up 14 days of warm weather we could end up growing our own banana’s in our back gardens?

News2 Banana

I doubt the Jellyfish are going to stay here long once they figure out this rain we are having is a permanent thing.

Another theory why the Jellyfish are coming to the UK is that Ponyo (Studio Ghibli) is out there looking for Sōsuke, that also explains the storms and flooding too.

News 2 PonyoNow if you are in the UK and decide to dare going to the beach with this weather it is advised, not to follow the Friends Episode where Monica gets stung by a Jellyfish and Chandler pees on her to stop the pain, according to some big scientist dude this act is a myth and is just unhygienic, plus think what this will look like to other British folk on the beach… It is funny on the Friends episode though.

That’s it for this week… lets see if I’m back to do this next week…
