same crap, different day...



name that tune...

this morning i heard one of the greatest lines to open a song:

"i've got a good mind to give up livin' and go shopping instead..."

that was hot...

can you guess who the artist is and the name of the tune? answer in the comments.

the rrrrrrrrroll-up-the-rrrrrrrrrim supreme court makes a landmark decision...

LB (little boy) and his sister, LG (little girl) were over on saturday for a lil' snack. the tim horton's (the iconic doughnut franchisor) debacle in the province of quebec was on our brains.

for out-of-towners, read this article...

well, in a vote of 3 to 0, we, the justices of rrrrrim rrrrrolling, decided "finders keepers....losers weepers".

so, drop the DNA testing and hand over the keys to the first girl...pronto.

the film festival continues...

i watched lost in translation last night as part of my on-going scarlett johansson film festival.

i'm sure many of my loyal readers have already seen this movie. i'll just get to the heart of the matter.

scarlett johansson was pretty hot.

but, what about bob? i thought bill murray was outstanding in his role as "bob harris", consummate american actor. i'll rank bill's role up there with his effort in groundhog day (one of my most favourite movies of all time). there were plenty of chances for bill's zany comic ability to manifest itself. watching the hospital scene in lost, i was on the edge of my seat, thinkin' "bill's going to bust this thing open any second now." but he kept it real (in character) and delivered an excellent, understated (for bill), but brilliant and precise performance.

normally, i skip movies like lost in translation. heavy on relationships and slow. well, the movie was just that. however, the evolution of an unlikely relationship between two seemingly lonely souls was captivating. they developed a friendship that seems to be missing with their own spousal relationships. there was sizzle between them alright. you'd think they'd hook up. yes!! but, at an emotional, intellectual level. that, my friends, was fascinating...yet refreshing.

that movie wasn't slow at all. in fact, the tension between the characters fueled the pace like high octane gas injected into a hot hemi engine.

i was sad at the end...

about scarlett, she was hot. it's good to know she's interested in older men. well, cinematically speaking, i guess.

so far, she's played a got-it-together girl in ghost world. then she played the completely clueless clone in the island. now, i've seen her playing a confused, not-so-got-it-together girl. i need to see her cry.

rating: 5 scarlett's out of 5.

next movie in the film festival: girl with a pearl earring...

What the hell is that thing? It looks like a medieval toothbrush - it kinda freaks me out...
Of course I'm going to the dentist this week and may be just a tad paranoid.
