My Favorite Commercial, Gaga, & 50 Shades of Grey

Shades of Grey     (daddy, skip
this part, please)

If you haven’t heard about ‘50 Shades of Grey’ yet, I assume
you’ve been on vacation in some faraway land, like, Timbuckfuckingtoo.


Everybody is talking about it.  All the women’s book clubs are reading
it.  And several of the women I know are
already on their 3rd book of the series.


It’s burning up  bedrooms all over the country with silver balls, whips, ice-cream, and red lipstick….


One of my friends admits,
“I’m blushing & feel guilty reading this!”


That’s okay, honey, we all know you’re a very naughty girl.




In the nutshell,  it’s
about this rich- as-hell Greek God named Mr. Grey who is 50 shades of  dysfunctional,  masochistical,  & dictatorial wickedness.


But it’s more than that,
or women wouldn’t be soaring  to
the bookshelves….They can’t keep 50 Shades on the shelves.


The author,  EL James,
has hit a female nerve.  Big time.  Even Good Morning America & Dr. Drew are
discussing it on their shows.  Oh, & she just sighed the movie rights for LOTS of money.


EL’s  followers have termed  her books,  “Mommy

Yeah, the writing is corny & clichéd.    And
if I hear ‘My Inner Goddess’ one more time, I may go maaaaad…


But I just ordered the 3rd book for my Kindle, as well.

O0000h, Myyyyy!

~~~~I Dig This
Commercial  ( Fab )


~~~~I looooove this Motivational Speech By Gaga

~~~Dear Reader,  Have you read 50 Shades?  If so, what are your thoughts?   Why do you think this book hit a nerve w/ women?

    :-) Fan Fiction. I saw a review of this on Lynn’s site (All Fooked Up) and found it quite hilarious. This is a take off by the fans of the Twilight series. (Should I be spanked for the spoiler?) I think the book cover is cool, isn’t it? Your “review” is hilarious.

    That commercial is cool – I was wondering where it is going 😀

    Gaga always rules. Just looking at the number of people assembled there is mind-blowing!

    Still laughing over your comments about 50 shades of Mr.Grey…Hugs, Kim! Love ya!

    I heard about 50 shades of Grey this week. Hope the author has Twilight and Harry Potter kind of success.

      She does. She just sighned a huge movie deal.

      The writing is quite midiocre, but the sex is gquite ood <3 Xx

    I Loved the commercial!!!!

  4. Kim, I read “50” but all the hyper-sexuality started to bore me after a while. Here we have this 21 year old virgin (already asking me to suspend belief), who turns into a kinky submissive in about 5 minutes flat. Whoa!

    I adore that Fiat ad. And Gaga! Two out of three ain’t bad as Meatloaf says!

      I don’t know why I kept on reading! I guess I wanted to know if Mr. Grey changed.

      You. Rock. Like. Gaga. <3 Xx

  5. Michael Ann says:

    I’m too sexual frustrated to read that, it will only make it worse! :-)

    Will have to see what the ruckus is all about. Wonder why it’s hitting a nerve???/

    • Kim Sisto-Robinson says:

      I am not sure why this book is doing so well…

      The writing is not mind-blowing, but there is something….

      Perhaps we all just desire to read a bit of FLUFF & Shit. Xx

  7. Ellen says:

    Working in the publishing industry, 50 Shades has been enjoying a huge amount of “air time” (and blog time, and review time, and…). Did you know it started life as Twilight fan fiction? It is on my TBR list, and I anticipate regularly scheduled cold showers. 😉

    The commercial is charming and, ultimately, hilarious. As for Lady Gaga, I am such a fan of her music, and her mission.

    Enjoy this lovely day, Kim! :-) xoxo

    I have not heard of it before…I know…I live under some rock in canada.

    But it does sound very ummmm….saucy :)

      Yes, moooore than saucy…..

      do you have electricity over there yet? HaaHa.

      Love <3 xx

  9. Kim,

    I have not read 50 Shades of Grey yet. I’m trying to figure out how to get it on my Kindle w/o my 11-year-old coming across it! :) I’m sure I will. I’ve read bits of it on different sites. The writing is not very good. But who am I to judge? I’d love to have my not-very-good writing hit sales like that. (You know, once it’s published!) But there must be something about it to make it such a hit. (I bet men like it even more than women because I think there’s a lot more sex going on in suburbia right now!)

    The Fiat commercial rocks.

    Lady Gaga rocks. Have you signed up for her website yet?

    Oh, and Kim, you rock most of all!

    • Kim Sisto-Robinson says:

      The writing is not very good. True.

      But this author hit on something the women like…

      It’s strange. It would be fun to discuss w/ a bunch of people.

      Xxx Love to you, dear.

  10. Lola says:

    Honey, I don’t read porn, I create it. Just without the video cameras and bad music.

    BUT if this book helps to spice up the sex lives of a bunch of horny middle aged women who are a little bored after 10 years or so of the same ole same ole?
    I say, Go Grey!

  11. Irene says:

    I love that Fiat ad! I love the FIAT 500 Abarth!!

    Gaga rocks!

    No I haven’t read 50 Shades. Haven’t read Hunger Games or Twilight. I just don’t read. I know, I’m pathetic.

  12. mamawolfe says:

    Oh my dear, I haven’t read it…maybe I should! But I think the reason this book, Gaga, and others have made such a splash is that women just know that we ROCK and are finally getting momentum behind us…slowly but surely it will come.

  13. I’ve heard too much about 50 Shades and I’m already tired of it without having read it, hehe.

      Mama A,
      I soooooooooo agree.

      —-a girl at work gave me her Kindle and said READ THIS…

      or I swear, I would have never read it <3

      Now, I’m a bit hooked.


  14. Oh dear. I hadn’t heard of it either. Had my head up my butt coping with life I guess. I will add it to my someday pile. That said there are fouir very big piles of unread books here already. Sigh.
    Cyber hugs.

    I haven’t read this book but I’ve heard a lot of talk about it. Still not sure if it’s a book for me but maybe I’ll have to check it out.

    • Kim Sisto-Robinson says:

      If you have other books on your list, do not waste your time..

      this is more of a summer, fluffy, nothing, sexy read…


  18. Well, I just returned from Timbuckfuckingtoo and must admit that I missed the news about ‘50 Shades of Grey’ — haha! Thank you for updating me! Maybe I’ll take a look at it right after I finish the biography of Abe Lincoln I’m reading 😉

    I loved the Lady Gaga ad — very INSPIRING! Thanks for being eternally hip and still being friends with me! XOXOX

    • Kim Sisto-Robinson says:

      I snickered about you reading the bio of Lincoln…

      ….cuz 50 Shades is soooooo just the opposite of anything decent, historical, or valuble.

      I mean, it’s not going to make you a better human being or anything.

      It is just fun, sexy, and dirty. Haaa


  19. Never heard of the book. I live in the boonies with cows and an Alpha Hubby who keeps me tied up. Literally.
    Saw the commercial; cute for a car that looks like a souped up mini-cooper or a stretch VW
    Except for her potty mouth, loved Gaga’s speech.

    I believe in YOU, Miss Kim.

  33. I’m kind of a geek. I actually hadn’t heard of this book. But I have no doubt that it will be brought up in our book club because, even though I’m totally not aware of what is cool, my girlfriends are:) And we would all love a little spice in our worlds right now! I mean, I would. I would like some spice. Extra heat. Yeah, um, I think I’m revealing a bit much right now:) I will stop there.

    If anyone wants good bondage erotica, let me recommend Roni Loren and Eve Berlin. THEIR books are hot AND well-written.

    Must admire Lady Gaga, in all her translucent plastic glory. Doesn’t look like a real comfy outfit though, does it?

    this book is really hot. it’s interesting to see what catches fire out there. really popular things get the love and the hate. it’s kind of interesting. i agree with you that people like fluff. sounds like it has really tapped into that feminine fantasy of being dominated in the bedroom. i also think it has to be a good storyline, or at least decent, in order to keep people reading.

  53. —Jessica,
    I thought it was a hair color, too, and I was surprised as hell to learn it was some
    kind of sexual, wild mommy porn.

    I love these sorts of success stories for writers. It’s such a hard industry to break into these because suddenly every one is writing books and blogging, looking for instant stardom. See an writer break is gives me chills. I confess (don’t hate me) I am just not a Gaga fan. I like her voice but she isn’t someone I go out of listen to. Sorry. Love’d the visuals …
    Brenda recently posted..A Woman’s SpiritMy Profile

  57. No big surprise that women need some titillation in their lives too. And I’m always happy for successful authors.

    Which leads me to the question, is this the genre you are going to write in one day? You have the right pluck for it.
