I’ve spent parts of the last week updating my movies page. It now has a new format, and an “Annual Favorites” section that I stole from Brandon. I’ve also had some time to start watching movies again. Actually, I haven’t had the time, but I’ve done it anyway. I’ve realized that if I check out DVDs from the UGL I can watch them in between classes in the computer lab instead of surfing the internet or doing school work. It works out pretty well. In the past week I have seen: The New World, Psycho, Treasure of the Sierra Madre and Paths of Glory. I’m not quite at the “Brandon” level of movie-watching, but it’s been a fairly productive week. It amazes (and saddens me) that I watch probably 1/4 the amount of movies that Brandon does, yet I’m still far ahead of him in the total number of movies I’ve seen.
Speaking of Brandon, happy belated half-Birthday. My gift to you was watching Psycho. You gave me two movies on my birthday, so I figured one was adequate for your half-Birthday. Also, a shout out to Mrs. Nowalk and Mr. Hansen. Was this a kick-ass March Madness or what? Unfortunately we will all have to suffer through the hell that is April before the amazing month of May in which we finish school and celebrate Katherine’s birthday…and with any luck, we’ll all get asked to Prom again. It’s been two years since I’ve gone and I’m itching to get back. Someone should take my sister! I can take Teresa. She already dreams about me so I’m practically there, I’ll just have to get rid of this Chris kid.
Also, I’ll post my Pictures of the Day sometime this week. I haven’t taken any of them off of my camera for awhile, and have been extremely lazy. Speaking of lazy, on Tuesday I woke up to the sound of thunder and looked outside to see Campus Estates flooded. Instead of fighting the rain to make it to my classes, I decided to stay home and did absolutely nothing all day. I read for about an hour, but aside from that just slept a lot and watched television. It was extremely unproductive and exactly what I needed. If you feel stressed and don’t have any tests coming up, I definitely recommend it.
I’ve seen Rent three times this week, and listened to the soundtrack at least once every day. I can’t believe I haven’t gotten sick of it yet. I’ve probably seen the movie more than any other movie from the past five years, and it’s only been out on DVD for six weeks. And it’s not like the movie is phenomenal, it’s just the music and the story that are so amazing I continue to watch it. I would give just about anything to have seen the original cast perform ten years ago. I’ve also decided that sometime within the next year I am going to take a weekend trip to NYC and go see the show. I can stay with my aunt in the Village, and that will actually make the trip pretty affordable.
Brandon, where’s the update you’ve been promising all week? Veronica, thanks for letting me know about Katie. It’s weird, and I’m repulsed by her image, but it’s nice to know where things stand. Lea-what’s-her-bitch, I can’t believe you actually updated. Here are the things I’ve learned this week:
- Leahanne is no longer non-existent, but instead just very lazy.
- Michael Douglas looks EXACTLY like his father.
- Stanley Kubrick is insane, but also a genius.
- Sons and Daughters is an enjoyable, fast-paced show, but will never replace AD.
- Scrubs cannot produce a bad episode. It just can’t be done.
- Flight tickets to Peru at $700 round trip.
- I would be perfectly happy running a small, old-fashioned movie theatre for the rest of my life.
- If you leave your wallet in your pants when you wash your clothes, it will leave a stain on the pants.
- I haven’t seen nearly 1/5 of IMDBs top 100.
- I will occasionally give in and actually do something Leahanne recommends.
Okay, it’s time to shower, and then dinner. Tonight I expect to either a) watch Arrested Development and cry to myself or b) watch The King of Comedy and see if Martin Scorsese can actually get Jerry Lewis to act. Either way, hopefully I’ll have a relaxing evening.
