A Must See Film: Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead

After browsing my Netflix instant cue for something new to watch this film caught my eye. I thought it would be a nice background movie to watch while I played around on the computer.

Well shortly after clicking "play" I was hooked and just watched the entire thing.

FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe's personal mission to regain his health while traveling across America, juicer in tow, and inspiring others to do the same.


But it's a lot more interesting than that. There is Joe who makes this major change in his life and "cures" his illness enough so he does not have any more outbreaks and can stop taking his medication. Then along his journey he meets an obese man that is desperate for help. In the end they lost so much weight and looked so much healthier.

And it all started with a juice fast.

This film is very inspirational, and it makes you think about your health and how it is all in your hands. No matter how far you have let yourself go there is still hope for a long and healthy life.

You can watch this movie on Netflix or Amazon.

Stumbled Upon a Great Author

If you haven't yet heard of The Mortal Instruments or The Infernal Devices series yet you need to go check them out now!

I can't remember where I first heard about Cassandra Clare and her books, but I'm thankful to whomever it was that led me to her enchanting stories.

The Mortal Instruments series is about shadowhunters and nephilim, and an ordinary girl that soon discovers that the world she lived in is nothing like it seems. If I had to compare it to other stories or movies currently out in the world, I'd say it was a mix between Harry Potter and The Sword of Truth but not quite as epic. I have only read the first three books in this series as of yet, but they are so gripping and entertaining. I love them.

There is going to be a movie soon to, and I've read over the Internet that it's supposed to be the next Twilight and Harry Potter craze.

The Infernal Devices is fairly new; the second book is due in December 2011. It's a gripping adventure that includes magic and downworlders: warlocks, vampires, and other supernaturals. December feels so far away, but it will definitely be worth the wait.

For more information about these book series you can visit the author's website:

Thanks for reading! I hope I've inspired someone to also stumble upon these great books.

Time is Unreal.

My online presence has been lacking. Long story short I've had some personal health issues to deal with as well as my husband and I are in the process of buying our first home.

I've had so many hopes and dreams I wanted to accomplish this year with __1337 Art. I do still hope to achieve some of them, but I have to take things slow and work around our moving schedule and settling.

What I will continue to do is add new items to my Etsy, Artfire, and Zibbet shops and hopefully in time before the holidays I want to have my personal website up and running so my customers can shop directly from the site.

I will update again when I'm ready to spend an afternoon adding new items to my shops. You can also follow me on Facebook to get instant access to new listings as they are posted.

Life is too short to hope and dream but not take enough action to make these things a reality.
