Then, I feel overjoyed and excited for people - to have your dream house realized must give you an overwhelming feeling of pride.

Ciara featuring Justin Timberlake » Love Sex Magic

I've always thought Ciara is sexy. But when Missy Elliot said it, it was awkward. It's better when Justin Timberlake says it. And boy did he say it in their collabo "Love Sex Magic."

Cult Films have limited but very special appeal. Cult films are usually strange, quirky, offbeat, eccentric, oddball, or surreal, with outrageous, weird, unique and cartoony characters or plots, and garish sets. They are often considered controversial because they step outside standard narrative and technical conventions. They can be very stylized, and they are often flawed or unusual in some striking way.
