Scary Movies?

Anoth­er NaBloPo­Mo prompt: Do you like scary movies that make you jump?

I’m not old enough to watch scary movies! I find them far too fright­en­ing, indeed, night­­mare-induc­ing. Sam required that I watch The Crow with him when we’d just start­ed dat­ing him (I can’t remem­ber why any more) and, like a fool, I did­n’t […]

Movies That Sound as Good as They Look

Plinky said, “Name a movie that has a great sound­track.”

Sound­track Cov­er Print Out

There are so many! If I had access to my full music library right now, we could be here all day, because i do love movie sound­tracks. For sim­plic­i­ty’s sake, I decid­ed to leave musi­cals out of […]

I’m Feeling Better!

(I think I’ve already used “Not Dead Yet” as a title, and I real­ly don’t like to be too repet­i­tive.) I haven’t been post­ing much, and it isn’t real­ly because I haven’t had any­thing at all to say. In fact, I’ve repeat­ed­ly start­ed to write posts. In fact, I’ve fin­ished writ­ing some posts — but […]

Happy November!

I fig­ure it’s past time I check in again. Obvi­ous­ly, I’ve giv­en up on the Blog365 thing. I did make it 9 months or so, at least.

Katie turned 18 at the end of Octo­ber, so she vot­ed in the elec­tion for the first time. I’m real­ly tick­led that her first time was so his­toric! […]

Giggles

We’re watch­ing Hog­fa­ther. It is insane­ly, delight­ful­ly sil­ly.

Sweet Saturday

Sam took Katie up to Repub­li­can land to pick up her new glass­es lens­es today–she went to the eye doc­tor while she was with my par­ents, because they were out dri­ving and real­ized that she was squint­ing to read the road signs. Her eyes had­n’t changed much at her last few year­ly check-ups, but they […]

Dr. Horrible!

Go go go! This is the last day to see it free!

If it comes out on DVD as hoped, we’ll be buy­ing a copy. It’s hilar­i­ous.

Oh! There’s also a Cap­tain Ham­mer com­ic!

Juno!

Katie got the Juno DVD last week, so we all watched it togeth­er Fri­day night. She’s been gush­ing about it since see­ing it in the the­ater, and adores the sound­track, so we were cer­tain­ly curi­ous.

It was an odd movie, fair­ly quiet–no car crash­es, big tragedies, etc. It was real­ly well-done, and I was pleased […]

De-Lovely

Sam and I just fin­ished watch­ing it–the 2004 Cole Porter biopic/musical. It was, absolute­ly, De-Love­­ly and Delight­ful and every oth­er pos­i­tive adjec­tive you can think of! Porter is my favorite com­pos­er, but hon­est­ly, I put this one in the Net­flix queue after see­ing a YouTube clip of John Bar­row­man singing “Night and Day” with Kevin […]

TotD: Controlling the Public

Wag the Dog, any­one?

There have always exist­ed three ways of keep­ing the peo­ple lov­ing and loy­al. One is to leave them alone, to trust them and not to inter­fere. This plan, how­ev­er, has very sel­dom been prac­tised, because the politi­cians regard the pub­lic as a cow to be milked, and some­thing must be done […]
