Last night Gloria Estefan and her Husband were celebrating her birthday at Bongos in Miami along with many other people. I must say that she was extremely nice to take hundreds of pictures with almost everyone at the club scene last nigh. Picture after picture she smiled at every camera and enjoyed the time with her fans.
As the night became morning and we were leaving the club, we were lucky to get one more shot with Gloria Estefan before she left, and even after 5 hours of extreme partying, she smiled at the last picture we took of her that evening!!!

Her music has always inspired and bring joy to the people, but her charisma and great sense of nobility makes her a Star and someone to look up to, go Gloria!!!

Just as Gloria was out and celebrating her birthday, we were out doing the same for our dear friend Angelica, and guess what, we took a shoot of her and Gloria Stefan.

Happy Birth Day!!!

I am sure some of you might not like this cartoon, but you might like all the mix martial arts involved in it and hopefully it will make you get up and see this movie this coming summer as I will do too!

Originally a Nickelodeon TV series set in an Asian influence world of martial arts and elemental manipulation. The plot of the series is for Aang, the air bender; who uses air bending or Ba Gua an art with dynamic circular movements and quick directional changes, this technique uses centripical force to generate power, and uses nearly constant circular movement to create angles between the combatants; to rise up as the new Avatar and master of all the elements, and prevent the Fire Lord and the fire nation from conquering the world.

Noah Ringer as Aang, The Avatar

Aang finds out at the age of 12 that he is to save the world as he is the succesor in the Avatar line, but knowing he is merely a child, he flees and secludes himself from the world in an air-iceberg. One hundred years later (yeap 100 years) pass by and two kids "Sokka and Katara" stummble upon the iceberg and free the Avatar from its frozen state, only to find out that the world he remembers is long gone.

In the First book, Aang travels along with his new friends to the north pole to seek a Water bender master to teach him the ways of water bending. The martial art that identifies with the element is known as Tai-chi which focuses on alignment, body structure, breath, and visualization.

But he is "hunted" down by the banished fire prince Zuko, who intends to gain back his reputation by capturing the Avatar and returning him to he Fire Lord.

Dev Patel (from slum dog millionaire) as Prince Zuko

On the Second book, Aang masters the earth bending technique when a blind Earth bender (Toph) teaches him the arts of Hung Gar. A style of martial art that has firmly rooted stances and powerful strikes to represent the solid nature of earth.

In this book, he is still follwed by Zuko, but now Zuko's sister "Azula" tags along to fight Aang and eliminate him. But Aang and his friends find out about a solar eclipse that will leave the fire nation voulnerable for a samll period of time, leaving the fire Lord at his weakest, a perfect opprtunity to attack.

On the third book, Prince Zuko stops the hunt for the Avatar and joins him in the quest to stop the Fire lord from conquering the world, thus he becomes Aang fire bender Master. Fire bending is known as Northern Shaolin Kung Fu uses strong arm and leg movements.

Cliff Curtis as the Fire Lord Ozai

Here is where all the action and fighting takes place as the Avatar and his friends face off the Fire Lord and his daughter Azula in an epic batlle.
The movie is to be released on June 2 2010, and if they mix all of the element the cartoon presents, with the hi-tech special effects and a good cast, its guaranteed to be a hit in the theaters.

An action packed movie, full of gadgets and the latest weapons! great sound effects and special effects, needed to have additional motivation for us to see it again and again!!! I'm talking about all the girls in the cast, take a look at these, Karolina Kurkova, Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols.

Just look at Sienna Miller leather outfit! Although she admitted it was a little tight, it was worth it because it pulls and tightens where it needs to be tight!! Although these girls went for an intense training of hours of boxing and more, I would say it is completely worth it!!

Iron Man 2 is said to be release on May 7th 2010, and if the sequel is in any shape or form as good as the first, this could be the movie to see next year!

The cast of the movie is no joke either, Robert Downey Jr, Edward Norton, Samuel L Jackson and the Lovely Scarlett Johansson, just to name a few, are hints that this movie is well on its way to be a blockbuster hit!

I will admit that I was not a fan of Scarlett's new look but now I understand why! and just to see her in a cat suit as the villain Natasha Romanoff also known as Black Widow is already making me buy the tickets to see the movie.

At Comic-Con 2009, Scarlett Johannsson revealed that she has kick-started a gruelling regime to slim down and tone up her bod for her role as the sultry villain in one of this year's hotly anticipated blockbusters The naturally curvy screen siren has been told that she will have to scoop her ample self into a black shiny catsuit. Wow.
