Over Sharing on Social Media Really Needs to Stop – Furious 7 Movie

2 days ago when I was observing my News feeds and amongst other social media websites, something really began to bother me in so many ways. One that hit close to home and one that I just cannot believe. I know that the social media has boomed and has become one of the most biggest information hubs of the world, and I never knew how some people can just post anything without thinking until a couple of days ago. I just cannot believe it. It is too much. I mean enough is enough. This really pushed my buttons this time. I cannot endure that disrespectful acts from people. Just because a film just came into theaters it does not mean that you have to right away ruin it for people, and post every single darn thing. It is not cool at all.

With all due respect of the Late Paul Walker and his memory who died in 2013, November..¬† To all those who were close to him, his loved ones, his Fast family, the fans, I find it very disrespectful and wrong of people who are spoiling, over sharing the movie and taking parts of the movie and putting it out there, spending all that time with creating gif’s, memes, and video posts already on social media sites. This is not good to do, especially when there are such highly devoted Fans of the Furious 7 family and dishonoring Paul’s memory that way. I see people already spoiling the ending and everything and showcasing it to the world to see. It is not fair. People really need to stop that. I do not find it to be amusing at all.

Film Makers, Actors, Actresses, and everyone involved in movies work so hard, the production is hard work, very hard. Some people do not realize how much work, time, tons of money and effort is involved in making these films shine, and for them to make to our local movie theaters, then we have people who copy and use their smart phones or whatever device, to record the movie, to blab it out for everybody else is just so insensitive and down right disgraceful to those people involved in that production and directing.

There is no excuse in the book. It is never right to copy, re-produce something without written consent and permission from the intellectual owner/s of that production or whatever the case maybe. Not just in movies, but in our general life. If something is not yours and if you want it, ask for it, get written permission, do whatever you can to get things in writing before sharing somebody elses work. It is the right thing to do.

Just because it is social media, it does not mean that we have to post everything and anything we hear about, see, and do. Some things are meant to be private.

Furious 7 has not even been a week yet since the April 3rd, 2015 release and I keep seeing all these videos of the movie, and most importantly the best highlights, especially the ending part. I mean seriously? Is this a way some people want to honor and Respect Paul Walker and his cast-mates and film makers?

I saw it on Sunday April 5th, 2015 and I have not given anything away, as should be, but people do not think, people blab everything and it is not very good. Go see it in the theaters or wait to buy the movie, but don’t spoil and ruin it for everyone else who has not seen it yet. I just find that to be really terrible and thoughtless.

So enough is enough… Over Sharing needs to stop. It is really ridiculous having to spoil something for people whom have been looking forward to seeing the movie Furious 7. Instead of keeping people in suspense, and their eagerness to go to the movie theaters or the anticipation of seeing it on DVD in your own homes when the movie comes out. It ruins the fun, it ruins the curiosity. Thanks for understanding my view-point, because it is just craziness.

 

RIP Paul Walker — I Love you so much.

Furious 7 – One Last Ride – For Paul Walker – In Theater’s Now

On Friday April 3rd, 2015, Furious 7 made its premiere and movie debut in theaters where in about 3-4 days now, it made over 384 Million dollars in the Box office and more. Just over half way through the movie, an unfortunate loss happened to the Fast family, loved ones and fans all across the world, when Paul Walker died of a single vehicle crash where he was a passenger in Los Angeles on November 30, 2013, which put a strain and scar on everyone as well as a terrible shock, which the news spread within seconds, and that feeling will never go away. The production of the movie came to an abrupt halt and got post-poned until the directors and film maker of the movie decided how they will re-write and complete the movie. Paul’s brothers Cody and Caleb completed the rest of the role of Brian O’Connor.

The movie was absolutely incredibly, tastefully and wonderfully done. There was so much action. The Late Paul Walker as well as Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Elsa Pataky, Jordana Brewster and more were actors of the movie. They are all so carefully and excellent chosen actors for Furious 7 and the movie series. I love you all very much.

When I watched it on Sunday April 5th in the evening, the whole theatre was packed. There was not an empty seat. They had the movie playing in different auditoriums because they could not keep up and each theatre was packed. I said to myself, to honor Paul’s memory, I need to go watch it as soon as possible. I could not wait until next week, when I initially had planned to see it. I went to go watch it with friends. I had this feeling and I knew I would be a total emotionally wreck I tell you, I could not stop balling my eyes out. You could hear sniffles and cries throughout the whole theatre as was myself. So many tears were flowing down my cheeks, and the ending of the movie was a beautiful tribute to Paul Walker. Paul definitely put a huge and everlasting impact on everyone. I will not be spoiling it for anybody.

I feel that I want to begin watching Fast and Furious from the beginning and make it like a marathon and watch One Last Ride – Furious 7 once again.

I had written this on Tyrese Gibson’s Facebook page on one of his photos and I said “you guys have no idea how much you all mean to me. I love you guys so much. I loved Furious 7 so much, and I want to go and see it again. It was a great movie and the ending and tribute to our Lovely Paul, was incredible and tastefully completed. I ADORE YOU GUYS SO MUCH…. My dream is to meet you all and tell you all personally how much of a great impact you all have put on me and my life. I have followed you guys since the beginning and will forever do so. I support you all 100%. RIP Paul, it will not be the same without you, but as I watch these movies, I will forever see his smile and beautiful soul shine.

Paul, keep smiling in the heavens. Your smile is contagious and beautiful. He made me feel like I knew him personally, he made me feel like he was a good friend of mine, he made me feel like I was close to him. fly your angel wings, Race and rest in paradise PW. We all love you so much. God Rest your soul. With Respect and love, your forever and one of your biggest fans, supporter  Talin Orfali

 

Furious 7 – Paul Walker’s Last Film – Going to be in Tears

Vin Diesel names his baby girl Pauline after Paul Walker – That is so sweet. I got so emotional today and I still am.

Seeing Fast and Furious 7 is going to make me ball my eyes out. I probably won’t even be able to pay attention to the movie. Paul Walker was my all time favourite actor since before the FastFurious movies came out. I felt like I knew him personally and the way he acted toward his family, friends and fans as well as his cast mates was something that was so incredible. Paul will live through me and my heart forever. I always wanted to meet him and never got the chance to. I am still heart broken when I heard of his death. I just did not want to believe. I still don’t believe it, no matter how many times I see the photos, the footage, the news everywhere and articles too.

When I first heard of his death, I never made it a big deal, I said these things happen all the time when a hoax happens or rumors start floating around, then when I saw reports from ABC, CNN, NBC, CTV, right on my facebook news feed, I said Oh my goodness, it is real, then I saw the footage of the burned Porsche and my heart just stopped, I was in utter shock as I had been checking out Facebook on my phone, I kind of wish I didn’t, but I was waiting for a message, but however I remember I was out at a Christmas party just sitting down and enjoying the people and the music at the end of November, 2013 and suddenly my fun and everything just stopped right there, and plus I remember I had a really bad knee after spraining/dislocating it just 10 days before, that is why I was just sitting down and enjoying, so on top of that, I was just crying my eyes out. I wanted to go home.

I was not in the mood after. I don’t know that is how close I felt with Paul Walker. He was truly a beautiful person who cared about everybody and he was such a sweet and lovely soul. God rest your soul Paul. It was very untimely and something your loved ones and fans were not prepared of hearing that terrible news. You were an angel on earth and you have gained and earned your wings in heaven. I love you Paul and I always will.

I will watch your last movie in memory of you, but I can guarantee that I will be crying. Thanks for the memories and the beautiful name and legacy you left behind.

My Sweet 16 Birthday that Never happened

When I was in high school and about to turn 16, I have heard about the sweet 16’s birthday parties and the fun those people had, and planned their birthdays that it was perfect, the people who had gone to those parties, the decorations, the planning all kicked off perfectly.

Even though I did not have friends back in the day, and those who I thought were somehow, I decided to throw a sweet 16 birthday party for me. As I had invited 20 people from my school. So now when it came toward the last couple of days to my birthday, I assured people to ask if they are going to be attending my birthday and they said yes we will be there. I got so excited. I remember it was April 28, 2001, on a Saturday and Monday is my real birthday on the 30th, and decided to have it 2 days early because of School on the right day.

As I had begun decorating, and had ordered the cake and the food, as well has putting some games so people can play. As the time was nearing for people to come, I got so excited that I stood by the door to wait for them to come, my anticipation was growing deeper. As I looked at the time again and it was 2pm where the time said on the invitations, I look at the clock and it said 2:15. I said ok its ok, they are running late. Then one person came around 2:30, I welcome her into the house and she decided to wait with me. then it became almost 4pm, and it was just her and I was devastated, humiliated, embarrassed, and crying so much.

That one girl who came to my party wiped my tears away and said it will be ok. Don’t worry, I am here. lets enjoy together. Who cares about the rest that stood you up? I said yeah you are right. So we enjoyed the food, and desert and cake and watched a couple of movies until it was time for her to go home. She hugged me and said, Talin, do not worry about anybody else, they are cowards. God is watching them. Then she left as her mom came and picked her up. My heart shattered to pieces. It was a feeling that I never wish on anybody else.

After her leaving, I let out a huge cry. I said, I cannot believe this happened to me and my mom comforted me and told me, don’t worry God will punish them. So Monday came and I was still crying and devastated. I did not enjoy my real 16th birthday, but I did go out to dinner with my family, which made everything better. I actually skipped school for a couple of days and just stood home. I just didn’t feel like seeing anybody. Then I decided to go to school on the Wednesday, and none of them said I am sorry and did not bother to give me an explanation as to why they did that. All the planning, food and everything went to waste, however we kept the food and ate it throughout the week.

From then on, I didn’t care about interacting with anybody and I just went about and studied, did my homework, attended all my classes, and then once school was finished, I’d never waste another second and just go home. I was so disgusted. That one girl changed schools the year after because her family had moved somewhere further, and that really made me even cry more. She was the only one who really cared. It was so nice of her. I still have the give she gave me 14-15 years later.

As I reached another milestone this year. At the end of April on the 30th of 2015, I will be celebrating my champagne birthday turning 30 on 30 and it is coming up so quickly. As I almost say Goodbye to my 20’s, I am truly hoping that I can have a sweet 30th birthday that will make up for the sweet 16th birthday I never had. I know it is not good to expect it, but when you’ve never had a birthday party reaching a milestone, it makes you wonder how and what might have been. I just want to have a great time with my lovely and beautiful loved ones I have in my life which really matter to me more than anything else.

Have you experienced a disappointing turnout at a party or function you have had? I am sure you felt humiliated and distraught. Have you had a similar situation where people didn’t bother to show up and not telling you why and not having the common decency to call and explain? If you have, I am so sorry to hear that. I know exactly how you feel. It is not a good feeling at all.

Hopefully nobody has to go through what I went through. Best wishes to you and may your dreams come true, because everyday is our birthday and celebrate it by the gift of breathing and living through another day. We are blessed and that is what matters the most.

So Much to Do and Doing Already. 2015 started off great

It has been an incredible and beautiful start to 2015. There is so much I have in store for this year and it has already been great progress and productive results. In the past few days I have been focusing and concentrating all my energy into my loved ones like always which is a given and also becoming more successful to fulfill my dreams to make them come true. I haven’t written much in the last few days and I apologize for that. I have just been so occupied with many things, but today I found some time to do some writing, to keep everyone updated on what is happening in my world. I know I had said that I will be doing more writing, but due to some circumstances, I have not been able to, but every chance that I do get, I will be here delivering what I promise my readers.

Since the beginning of 2015, have been going through my belongings and I have opened up boxes full of things that I have kept since I was a child. The things that came to my hands brought back many memories. I kept all my travel mementos, my school homework/projects, Papers of meeting minutes of when I was part of committees, greeting cards given to me, stuffed animals that are sentimental for me and so much more. It is a great feeling to get organized and to know what I have. I love keeping things like that.

Some people if not all talk about resolutions and what we are going to do when a new year comes around, and some keep their resolutions and some give up after a couple of days into it, however for me it is the 7th day and I am still going strong. I have been looking for a new job too, with all the changes that I am making to better myself, and to make the future bright with many possibilities that can arise from having an income coming into my pockets, and all the things I want to do with it, save some for a rainy day, invest it into important things, as well as save some to places I want to travel to and making it a goal to attain them. I know money doesn’t justify anything and it should not matter, but unfortunately it is part of life.

I feel so energetic and positive about everything. I have put my head up, facing challenges head on, working on my skills, and keep going forward to making dreams into a reality. Everything we want requires hard work, determination, dedication and enthusiasm. Without that, there is no foundation as how we want to set our lives to. We are all talented and have something great to offer to our world we are in. Let us encourage and motivate each other. That is the way the world can go around. It is a beautiful thing to help each other, give each other guidance and the will to carry on ourselves.

Have you began with creating a whole new perspective on your life? Have you began to attain and achieve your resolutions and goals for 2015 and beyond? Best wishes to everyone and may all your goals, dreams and wishes come true.

2015 is here! Welcome!

Hello everyone, now that 2014 is behind us, hope everyone had a pleasant, fun and great night when ringing in 2015. Here are to new beginnings this year. I can’t believe it is the second day already. Time is already flying by. before you know it, we will be putting up our Christmas/Holiday decorations once again. I remember the days when I always wanted to go out for new years and celebrate outdoors or at a banquet hall full of people, but nowadays, I just want to spend a quiet, fun and relaxing time at home with my loved ones with good food, snacks, a few drinks, and unwinding during the holidays is all that is important. I know its fun to get dressed up and to go to parties and everything, but I just don’t feel it anymore. I’d rather be at home all cozy and warm and just relaxing.

I don’t know if you feel the same way as well. To me, new years is just another day with another year added. We should be grateful for the days we have, for the years we are on the planet, and we should be grateful for all the blessings and everything we have. That is the most important thing that people really should focus on. Some people are so into vanity, materialism, and all that stuff, however the true meaning of the holidays and as well as everyday is to count our blessings and be thankful. There are so many unfortunate things happening in our world today, and we should always look at the bigger picture as things can be worse.

Always think positive, look at life in an optimistic way, be happy, live your life. Health, happiness, and positivity is the most important things in life. everything else is secondary. As 2015 is now here, I wish everyone a blessed year ahead and beyond. Lets create more memories, good times, motivate each other, encourage each other, have each others back, and share our stories with one another.

Many blessings and good times to everyone. Best wishes to all!

Cheers to 2015!
