I would like to thank twinpines for the ability to fully appreciate that opening.
I thought maybe they would retroactively give it Best Picture for the last 25 years. Possible upset?
Does he make it through the speech? Haven’t seen it yet!
If only I had not chosen The Gruffalo
Jen’s 185 minutes is looking might fine right about now. It started on time at 8:30 right?
sad face, i lose the pool
Unless my aforementioned BTTF upset quite deservedly happens.
Just how I like it. Ties are for suckers. Go Annette and Social Network!
His earlobes are bigger than my head.
We went out to dinner, fully intending to go see the 10:30 showing of DRIVEANGRYSHOTIN3D but about halfway through the meal I realized that there was just no way that I was going to make it through the movie, so here I am tumbling about it, and probably falling asleep within the hour. I wanted to see the movie with an opening weekend crowd, otherwise it’s just not worth it. So it’s now unlikely that I will ever see it. Oh well. It bombed at the box office yesterday, placing 9th, so maybe there wouldn’t even be a crowd tonight.
For dinner we went to Gordon Beirsch and I got the steak sandwich. I should have known something was up when he asked how I wanted it cooked. I’ve only ever known steak sandwiches to consist of many pieces of steak, shaved or cut up or whatever, and thrown on a bun with various toppings. This was a sirloin steak on a baguette. It was good, but strange to eat.
whatevermethinks: I don’t think we ever actually discussed Magnolia, I remember you saying something about it once. And you’re right, hate is a strong word, I forget when/how it came up anyway, but it stuck with me that it was among your least favorite movies. And I felt the same way the first time I saw Moulin Rouge, I believe the first thing I said when leaving the theater was something about tripping on acid, and I really disliked it. It took a repeat viewing years later to turn my opinion.
No tattoo this weekend. And I certainly will not be getting a quote as a tattoo. I was giddy with beer and rum. Drinking + tumblr = fun but you post dumb things.
Annnnd that is why they don’t let drunk people get tattoos. I would probably carve that off of myself if I woke up with a quote on me. It’d probably even be in the tramp stamp area.
Seriously though I want to get one of something else, thanks for the artist suggestions so far and let me know of you think of anything else.
I can’t reply to replies. The story goes I have been thinking/talking of getting a tattoo of a particular geeky thing for about two years now. When I started this talk I said that if “I still want this a year from now I’ll get it”. Obviously I am late. These other quotes actually do apply as well because Crys and I have had this conversation a few times now in the past few years. Any suggestions for a tattoo place? We are ready literally by tomorrow.
at least in the Roxanne scene. He rocks it.
a secret exclusive for y’all (because i’ve had a few and am feeling talky as is what happens on the weekends)
Moulin Rouge! is one of my favorite movies ever. I love it. I bet some of you are surprised but hopefully most are not. (we were looking for something to watch on Netflix and we found this)
I also really love Magnolia. I know whatevermethinks HATES it, but to each his/her own, I think it’s brilliant.
It’s kind of strange/awesome to watch a few episodes of Party Down and then Parks and Rec because of Henry/Ben.
(Un)related note: still haven’t watched REC2 but we will soon. I keep putting it off because it’s scary.
