Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince



I've been feeling a little under the weather today and wasn't sure how I was going to spend my evening, but I guess I do now!

I'd noticed when I pre-ordered Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince that you could choose standard shipping and, if it wasn't delivered today, the book would be free. I almost chose that option, but now I'm glad I didn't since I got my book today anyway.

Excuse me while I disappear for a few days now.

The Beethoven Experience

The BBC Philharmonic is currently performing all nine of Beethoven's symphonies. The really nice thing is that the day after they are performed, they are offering them up for download here. Go take advantage and get a little free culture.

iPodLounge Buyers' Guide 2005

I've talked before about how much I love iPodLounge.com, but I completely forgot to mention that their Buyers' Guide 2005 is now out.

It reviews just about everything iPod (it's over one hundred pages), so if you're an iPod owner like me or you've been thinking about getting one, you should definitely check it out. Hell, check it out either way to get a glimpse of some cool technology.

Mmmmmm. iPod goodness.

Is It Safe To Go Out?

I just finished watching Saw (brillant, frightening, absolutely genius film; I loved it) and last week I watched The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

I am now convinced that the world is chock full of lunatics who want to do very bad things to you and I don't think I am ever leaving the house again.

Ocean's Twelve & The Nightfox Song

I just got done watching Ocean's Twelve and, while it wasn't as good as Ocean's Eleven, it was still pretty good. Or maybe there were a lot of pretty men in it (Mmmmmm. George Clooney.) and I got distracted. Whatever.

Being a big fan of movie music, I totally fell in love with the song that was playing as the Nightfox makes his way through the laser beams. A quick Blingo search turned up the name of the song (La Caution's "The a la menthe"), but it turns out that the song isn't for sale on any CDs.

However, you can get it for free here from the artist. You know how I'm all about the free, so I had to share my find. Enjoy!

You should see what I see...

One of my favorite television episodes ever was the Dead Zone pilot. It was so moving, it was breathtaking.

Currently the entire first season is on sale for only $17.89 at Amazon.com. If you didn't haven't caught the show yet, now's an excellent time to get the first season really cheap.

Free Music from SXSW and iTunes

For those of us not lucky enough to be attending South by Southwest this year (I swear, next year I am definitely going!), you can get 750 songs from their Showcasing Artists library for free, via BitTorrent. In addition, you can also get the music festival schedule for your iPod as well.

Also, I don't think I've ever mentioned it, but every Tuesday, iTunes has a free single for download. I haven't been crazy about a lot of them, but it's still free music and you never know what you're going to find.

Jesus, I like him very much, but he no help with curveball.

I just finished watching Far From Heaven, which I just loved. The acting was great, the cinematography was beautiful (I could have stared at the colors for hours), and the story was interesting and sad at the same time.

I was looking through the extra features and started reading the cast biographies when I had a sudden "Oh my god!" moment. Dennis Haysbert, President David Palmer from 24 (one of my favorite shows), he of the regal bearing and beautiful voice, was Pedro Cerrano in Major League. How could I have not known that?

Van Helsing in Fifteen Minutes

Since I'm a member of both Netflix and Blockbuster Online (did that one to complete one of those free swag offers) I've been watching a great many movies.

Some have been good (Dawn of the Dead, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Stuck on You) and some not so good (Reign of Fire, Starsky & Hutch).

The one that I was really looking forward to seeing, though, was Van Helsing. I figured it had Hugh Jackman (he's so gorgeous), vampires, cool effects, and should be entertaining even if the story wasn't all that great.

I wanted to love it. I tried really hard. Alas, I did not. For those of you that want to save yourselves the trouble seeing it, just read Van Helsing in Fifteen Minutes. It's far more entertaining than the movie ever was.

Six Feet Under Opening Titles

I don't know about you, but I love Six Feet Under. It's got some of the best writing on television and the characters are just so real. Another thing that I've especially loved is the show's production value - it's always gorgeously shot with great music, especially the hauntingly beautiful opening credits with Thomas Newman's main theme (he did the American Beauty score which I plan on including on this season's Burn It).

Right now HBO's doing an in-depth look at the opening titles that's well worth checking out (did you know it's illegal to film true crows in the United States for commercial purposes?).

Survivor Strategy

As you can tell from my Netflix history, I've been watching the first season of Survivor. When the show first started I thought it was a really stupid idea and spurned watching it until about two years ago when they split the tribes into male and female. Feminist that I am, I couldn't resist watching it to see how it was going to play out. Now I'm totally hooked on the show and love it, especially the All-Star season that just finished up.

After watching the game for a few years (especially after how Machiavellian this season was) it's amazing to me that people went in and never organized alliances with the exception of a few players. Several players even refused to get in on alliances, something that would pretty much guarantee you a loss if you tried it now. One of the guys is voting for people alphabetically, not even trying to eliminate anyone. It's amazing how different the game became, and from what I understand, just after this first season. Should be interesting to see the evolution when the rest of the seasons come out on DVD.

Spooky

I've had about $200 worth of Amazon gift certificates just sitting around, so I figured I'd get myself a nice birthday gift (my birthday is only a week away. I'm going to be twenty-nine, the last year to be a 20-something. Very strange feeling). I ordered Crossed Bones by Carolyn Haines (excellent book, I just finished it this afternoon; review to show up on BiblioBlog later), The Journals of Eleanor Druse: My Investigation of the Kingdom Hospital Incident, Tales of a Librarian: A Tori Amos Collection with bonus DVD, Everquest: Gates of Discord Expansion Pack, EverQuest: Lost Dungeons of Norrath Expansion Pack, and The Mothman Prophecies soundtrack.

I've been listening to The Mothman Prophecies soundtrack almost non-stop since I've gotten it because it is simply that good. However, it's beginning to freak me out. The music is very creepy (especially the second CD consisting of the movie's score) and listening to it alone, especially at night, makes me think back to how much the movie freaked me out and then I start to scare myself (just a little bit, though; I'm not that big a wuss).

Anyway, I guess there's no real point to this rambling post, but has any piece of music or CD done the same to you? Or am I really a wuss?

Serious Moonlight

Listening to the WinAmp on random (as always) and David Bowie's "Let's Dance," one of my favorites, came on. The phrase "serious moonlight" that's used a few times in the song is just such an evocative image to me. Isn't it a great turn of phrase?

Power Play

Listening to all my mp3s on random (as I tend to do) and Eddie and the Tide's Power Play from The Lost Boys soundtrack just came on. There's some mixed metaphors in the lyrics (baseball isn't played in quarters, after all) and it's probably a prime example of bad 80s music, but damn, I love this song.

They're out of order in war
They're out of order in love

They need to feed, they both agree
The hawk and the dove

But don't get mad, get even
And don't let 'em get to you

I never promised
It was fair and true
Before they're through
They'll have me hunting you

It's not important

Good and evil
They're neck and neck
Bases loaded
And there's three on left

We're in the final quarter
And it's runnning out
You'll need a father
Like there's no time out

He'll lift you out of the cradle
Help you into the grave

But don't be fooled by all the rules
And don't be the slave

You take a chill pill, and, baby
Relax, float downstream

Life is no rehearsal
You know what I mean
And freedom seems
To be a far-off dream

It's not important

Good and evil
They're neck and neck
Bases loaded
And there's three on left

We're in the final quarter
And it's runnning out
You'll need a father
Like there's no time out

Waiting For That Day

I've been listening to my WinAmp on random and it just hit one of my favorite songs, George Michael's Waiting For That Day. If you want to listen along with me, you can get the song here. As always, right click and choose "Save As" to get it on your own machine. No idea when it's going to be pulled, so get it now.

So every day I see you in some other face
They crack a smile, talk a while
Try to take your place
My memory serves me far too well

I just sit here on this mountain thinking to myself
You're a fool boy
Why don't you go down
Find somebody
Find somebody else
My memory serves me far too well

It's not as though we just broke up
It's not as though it was yesterday
But something I just can't explain
Something in me needs this pain
I know I'll never see your face again

C'mon now
I've got to be strong now

Now everybody's talking about this new decade
Like you say the magic numbers
Then just say goodbye to
The stupid mistakes you made
Oh my memory serves me far too well

Don't you know that
The years will come and go
Some of us will change our lives
Some of us still have nothing to show
Nothing baby
But memories

And if these wounds
They are self-inflicted
I don't really know
How my poor heart could have protected me
But if I have to carry this pain
If you will not share the blame
I deserve to see your face again

C'mon now
You don't have to be so strong now
Come back

Come back to me darling
I will make it worth your while
Come back to your baby
I miss your kiss
I miss your smile
Seems to me the peace I search to find
Ain't going to be mine until you say you will
Don't you keep me waiting for that day
I know, I know, I know
You hear these words that I say

If I Had Words...

Back on Christmas Day I made a wish for all of you, quoting the lyrics from If I Had Words on the Babe soundtrack. I've been playing both versions of the song (one sung by James Cromwell and one sung by the trio of singing mice) repeatedly since I just adore this little song.

I'm an incredibly nice person, so I thought I'd put both versions of the song up for download so you could listen to them as well. I have no idea of when I'm going to pull them, so save them today. Enjoy! (Remember to right click and choose "Save As" to get this music on your own computer.)

- If I Had Words (James Cromwell)
- If I Had Words (Singing Mice)

If I had words to make a day for you,
I�d sing you a morning golden and new.
I would make this day last for all time,
Give you a night deep with moonshine.

That'll Do, Pig.

I just got done watching Babe, probably the most enchanting film ever made. Am I the only one who cries pretty much through the whole thing, especially at the end?

This is another one of those highly recommended movies for everyone regardless of age. The movie is simply priceless, especially the ending. Really, I'm not sure who the better actor is - stoic James Cromwell or the cast of animals?

On that note, I'll leave you with some lyrics that I wish for each and every one of you:

If I had words to make a day for you,
I'd sing you a morning golden and new.
I would make this day last for all time,
Give you a night deep with moonshine.


Merry Christmas, everyone.

Ladies' Night

I just got done watching a special show that The World Poker Tour put on where they invited six of the top women poker players to play against each other. What an excellent show it was! I was really surprised who won and the playing from everyone was phenomenal.

The Travel Channel is showing reruns right now, so if you haven't taken my advice and watched in the past, now would be a great time to start since the new season hasn't started yet.

Damn. I love poker.

Singin' in the Rain

I watched Singin' in the Rain tonight - my absolute favorite movie of all time.

If you've never seen this movie - whether you like musicals or not - this is a must-see movie. It's funny, romantic, got great song and dance numbers, and of course, there's the irrepressible, irresistible Gene Kelly (who not only did the singing and dancing, but also arranged all the musical numbers and co-directed).

I just adore this film so much. From the unforgettable image of Gene Kelly standing in the rain, smiling so wide (he actually got really sick while doing that number) to Donald O'Conner hamming it up and running up walls for laughs. To Debbie Reynolds shooting Gene Kelly down in the care and Jean Hagen, so beautiful, but oh, so funny sounding.

I was looking at IMDB info for the movie tonight and I was shocked to find out Kelly was forty when he did it. Forty! I had no idea. I knew that Debbie Reynolds was really young, but she was only twenty when she was in it. Talk about an age discrepancy between the stars, but I never would have guessed.

So, yet again, just me waxing rhapsodic about another of my favorite movies.

Excellent Movie and Soundtrack

So, I have close to 9,000 mp3s after I burned the several hundred CDs that I owed plus miscellaneous mp3s that just appeared on my hard drive by themselves, I swear.

Lots of time when I listen to music on my computer, I load all the mp3s and hit the "Shuffle" button on WinAmp just to see what I get. If I don't feel like listening, to the next song we go.

Tonight, while spinning the music roulette wheel, I got a track from The Last of the Mohicans soundtrack. Not only is that an incredible soundtrack, the move rocks. Every time I see it on, I am forced to watch it, even though I own the DVD and can, theoretically, watch it any time I want to.

I've read some of James Fenimore Cooper (though not this book) and I found him impossible to get through, but this movie is just perfection to me. Michael Mann's direction is wonderful, the cinematography is gorgeous, and it's an incredible love story, both the one between Hawkeye and Cora and the subtle one between Alice and Uncas. At the end of the movie where Magua is gesturing to Alice to come with him and instead she makes the choice she does (don't want to spoil it for anyone that hasn't seen it), just grips my heart every time.

So, no real point to this post, just felt like waxing rhapsodic about one of my favorite movies.

Finding Nemo

I stopped and picked up a copy of Finding Nemo on the way home from work and Steven and I just finished watching it.

This is the only Pixar film that I didn't see in the theaters and I wish I would have because this movie was just so damn much fun! Steven and I laughed through the whole thing and had a total blast watching it.

It's amazing to see how far computer animation has come since the very first Toy Story. That whole movie was just one beautiful scene after another. Highly recommended for everyone out there.

I noticed that Disney is back to its old "kill a parent off" storyline. Does make me wonder if a lot of smaller kids get upset when watching it. I know the whole mad elephant thing in Dumbo still can make me cry.

Freaked

I've been watching a lot of my DVD collection lately and I just finished watching The Mothman Prophecies.

That movie seriously freaked me out. The first hour was creepy as hell and keeping everything vague and a lot of the scenery out of focus only added to the tension that the movie created. Great horror flick and the soundtrack was terrific (I've already added it to my wishlist so I'll remember to buy it) and since it includes both the score and the music used in the movie, it's a great bargain at under $15.

If you're looking for a good creepy film, you can't go wrong with this one.

The Fab Five

Christine reminded me about something I've been meaing to blog about since the weekend - Bravo's new show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.

The concept is that five gay men, each a guru in one area (fashion, grooming, food and wine, culture, or interior design), help a straight man each week accomplish a mission - one guy needs to get ready for a gallery opening, one wants to get his place nice so his girlfriend will move in.

Steven and I have been totally loving it - especially the cool intro. The guys getting remade are great sports about it, which is cool. The Fab Five are also really funny, especially Carson, the fashion guru.

I highly suggest checking it out. And if anyone knows who sings the theme song, let me know. I can't find the answer anywhere.

Blood and Swash!

I was browsing through Lists of Bests a few weeks ago and started thinking about one of the movies I had checked off as watched - The Ghost and Ms. Muir. I thought about it and realized it was the tv show I'd seen, not the movie, so I did a quick search on the TiVo, found it, and recorded it.

I finally watched it last week and I have to say I can't remember a movie I've enjoyed more in quite some time. Gene Tierney was so strinkingly gorgeous and so high-spirited (pun intended). For a woman at the turn of the century, she was gloriously free and independent. Rex Harrison was also wonderful as the salty Captain Gregg. I couldn't help but laugh everytime Lucy (or Lucia, if you prefer) said blast, much to the shock of those around her.

The movie is both a love story and a fantasy and absolutely a must see. Don't let the fact that it's in black and white put you off - the characters are strong, the writing both witty and touching, and the story wonderful.

Signed Stephen King!

I can't believe it, but I just ordered Borderlands 5 from Borderlands Press.

What's so exciting about this is that it's a short story anthology with twenty-five contributors including David J. Schow, Bentley Little, Tom Piccirilli, Gary Braunbeck, and, unbelievably, Stephen King!

The thing that has me jumping up and down is that it's signed by all twenty-five contributors! I am the biggest Stephen King fan, but I don't own anything of his signed. It was a little expensive ($75), but cheap considering how many incredible authors are in it (and Stephen King!).

The guy I ordered from says he expects it to sell out within the hour, so I'm glad I ordered it!

Jukebox Junkie

Inspired by the luscious and talented Joelle's ever-changing mp3 downloads, I decided to add more than just one download to the site. If you look down the sidebar to the Music Selections, you can see what's up for grabs right now. Yes, I know most of the music is probably considered really geeky, but I don't care so there.

Btw, the Calexico tune is highly recommended. It's great - very 70s action movie like. Excellent for a Friday afternoon.

The Ring

I watched The Ring a few weeks ago and keep meaning to post my thoughts about it, but I never quite gotten around to it until now. I'll put everything in the "Read More" section so nothing gets ruined if you haven't seen the movie yet. For those who want my opinion withouth the spoilers - good movie, especially if you like the genre, but not as scary as it could have been.

Dress To Kill

I just spent the last two hours laughing my ass off at Eddie Izzard's Dress To Kill. He is just so damn funny. The whole bit about the monster on the moon and "Cake or death?" just make me cry every time. I am ordering you to rush over to Amazon and get a copy. You'll thank me later, I promise.

Survivor Losers

I'm watching tonight's TiVo and I must say these men are completely pathetic. They're in the middle of the Amazon, trying to win a game, and all they can talk about are how hot the chicks are. Have these guys ever gotten laid? Jeez. Grow up!

Frailty

As some of you may have noticed, I have a DVD collection of well over a hundred movies. What you probably don't know is that after I buy most of them, I don't even watch them. Strange, huh?

Anyway, Steven fell asleep on the couch last night so I popped in one of the movies that I have really wanted to watch - Frailty, a movie about a father who sees demons and teaches his kids how to destroy them. One of the kids sees his dad commiting murder and one sees him dispatching demons which leads to a struggle of what is truly reality.

All in all, I quite liked it. The ending was not impossible to guess, but I thought it was done very well and I really liked the idea behind it. The two kids who played Fenton and Adam were great. Rarely does a movie like this get kids this good. Bill Paxton directed it (it was shot in just 37 days) and I thought he did a good job since he has directed a film in almost twenty years. I would have liked it a little more suspenseful, but I still recommend it.

Anyone else seen it? What did you think?

Trading Spaces

I saw my first Trading Spaces today and I quite enjoyed it. It was the episode where the kid's room was turned into an outdoor adventure complete with a rock climbing wall and tent and the other couple's bedroom was turned into a romantic meditative space with a hanging bed.

I really thought the couple was going to hate what was done to their bedroom but they did seem to like it. All that orange would probably quickly get on my nerves.

It's definitely a cool idea, but I don't know if I could get behind letting my neighbors loose in my house to redecorate a room.

All That Jazz

Jeanna and I went to see Chicago and I cannot remember the last time I loved a movie so much or was able to be so caught up in the world they portrayed. I hadn't seen the show, so I had no idea what was going to happen in the movie which probably let me enjoy it more.

I figured it would be good, but I had no idea it was going to be this good. The dancing and singing numbers were absolutely stunning, especially Cell Block Tango and We Both Reached For the Gun.

Catherine Zeta-Jones was gorgeous and her performances were amazing. You can tell that she has a background in singing and dancing. Renee Zellweger made a hell of a chanteuse. Who would have thought she's have a voice like that? Usually Richard Gere bugs the shit out of me, but I actually liked him in this movie.

I suggest highly seeing this movie in the theater so that you can really take it all in. I loved the music so much that I have already bought the soundtrack (only $12.98 at Amazon). To me, this was magic and why movies hold such a dear place in my heart.

Anyone else seen it yet?

The Dead Zone - Season Two

I am so excited! The new season of The Dead Zone starts on January 5th. If you missed it last year, they are running a marathon of a lot of the episodes on that same day. The show is nothing short of amazing and Steven and I were glued to the TiVo last year whenever we had an episode to watch. Great stories, wonderful acting, awesome effects, and an ending that only leaves you wanting more. And who knew that Anthony Michael Hall would grow up to be so sexy?

Dead Zone Marathon

If you haven't been watching The Dead Zone on USA, you've been missing one of the best series I've seen in years. You're in luck, though, because USA is showing the first twelve episodes in order starting at 9:00 a.m. CST September 15th. I would strongly urge you to start watching this show. The stories are wonderful and the acting amazing. The characters are based on the characters from Stephen King's novel of the same name, so if you're a fan of his, even better. It's a hell of a show and Steven, who's not a big King fan, loves it too.

Bad Lieutenant - Worth Seeing?

I've been thinking about buying the DVD of Bad Lieutenant at Amazon since they've got it one sale for $13.48. I haven't actually seen it before, but I've always meant to watch it. I generally like movies like this (loved Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs), but I thought I'd ask y'all to give me a thumbs up or down on it. Anyone seen it? Heard bad things? Good things?

Books To Sink Your Teeth Into

I just read Guilty Pleasures and The Laughing Corpse by Laurell K. Hamilton and they are excellent. They are supernatural mysteries (sort of) about a vampire hunter. I had to stop on the way home tonight and get the third book in the series Circus of the Damned. I've got some gift certificates that I think are going to buy me the rest of the series and maybe the fifth season of The X-Files on DVD. Anyway, looking for something new to read? Try the Anita Blake series out.

Dead Zone Song

If you've been watching The Dead Zone on USA you may have noticed the haunting, hypnotic song that plays in the background during the opening credits. It's called New Year's Prayer by Jeff Buckley from his CD Sketches (For My Sweetheart the Drunk). I did some searching on KaZaA Lite and finally found a copy of the song. Since I'm so sweet, you can download it from my server here. Enjoy!

24 Or Rather 48

I read yesterday that Fox is picking up the series 24 next season despite it being 89th in the ratings. I really like the show and have been on the edge of my seat watching it. I've even let two or three of them stay on the Tivo so I can remain in the show's frenetic pace and watch them back to back. Hell of a good show and it will be interesting to see the season finale after last week's bombshell of who the mole really is.

The Truth Is Out There, But I Hope I Don't See It!

Steven and I attended a wedding reception today, so I missed the series finale of The X-Files. I think until I watch it, I will be avoiding blogs. A few weeks ago they killed The Lonegun Men off and I had the show ruined by several blogs that posted it on their sites. I cannot have the finale ruined. Must avoid blogs.

Spider-Man - Now With Gang Action!

We went and saw Spider-Man on Saturday night and it was really good. I am a sucker for big summer flicks, and I really enjoyed it.

The one thing that I didn't enjoy was when about half way through the movie twenty or so people in the first two rows stood up and started shouting at each other. They moved to behind the hallway behind the seats and kept yelling at each other. Eventually they all wandered back in, but about five minutes later they did the same thing. I was really beginning to think that a brawl was going to break out. I don't know if someone came and kicked them out or they decided they didn't really want to see the movie, but they never came back. I think I'm going to call AMC and suggest that they start putting a security gaurd in each of the theaters. That way when something like this happens, there is some around.

The second one looks like it will be just as good as the first one. Lara Flynn Boyle will kick ass as the bad guy (girl) and I love Tommy Lee Jones. Hurry up, July 3rd!

A Tribute

I just read the most wonderful article about The X-Files and why it was such an amazing show.

I admit, I was very disappointed when Mulder left and didn't like the show for quite some time. It does appear that it's starting to get its legs back underneath it, but now it is ending. As much as I will miss The X-Files, though, I'm glad they choose to go out while the show was still good as opposed to dragging it along for a few more years.

I will miss you, Mulder, Scully, Skinner, Doggett, and Reyes. It's been a wonderful ride and I thank you for the wonderful memories.

Thanks to the wonderful Tivo, I just found out that Alias reruns on the Fox Family channel on Friday nights. I happened to check and see if Alias was going to be a rerun this weekend and noticed that last Sunday's episode that I missed is coming on tomorrow night. I really love the show, but with only a few episodes of The X-Files left, I Tivod The X-Files instead. Yeah for current shows that rerun during the week!

Note to ABC: Give me a way to skip that flash intro already! I've sat through it twice now.

Once and Again No Longer

I just watched the finale of Once and Again and it was incredible, just like all the episodes before it. I am so sad to see this amazing piece of television get cancelled. This show made you believe that these people were real. I keep hoping that maybe the new Oxygen Network or that Lifetime will pick it up. Does anyone know what sacrifices the tv gods like best? I am going to be so heartbroken with this show ending and The X-Files ending as well, though in the case The X-Files I believe it's time to let that one go. If you're so inclined, cross your fingers and hope that Once and Again comes back.

Don't Panic!

The girls (Jeanna and Trish) and I went to the movie Friday night. For some strange reason, the AMC website wasn't showing correct movies and times, so we were able to see our first movie choice after all - Panic Room. Let me tell you, that movie rocked! It was incredibly suspensful, well-acted, well-directed, and just plain excellent. As I was watching the movie, I kept thinking, "Damn! That looks just like Fight Club." Found out later it was directed by the same guy, so I'm not surprised it was as good as it turned out to be. Looking for something to watch? Go see this film. Well worth it.

Everything's Eventual

Stephen King's got a new book coming out the day after my birthday. It's a collection of fourteen short stories entitled Everything's Eventual: 14 Dark Tales. While I'm really excited that he's got a new collection coming out (I absolutely LOVE his short stories!), I'm kind of annoyed. Out of the fourteen stories, I've read (or heard) thirteen of them. I'm one of those King freaks that hears he has a short story in The New Yorker or some other magazine and has to get a copy. It's disappointing that by being an avid fan and searching out these hard-to-find stories that I have no new King to look forward to until later in the year when he releases From a Buick 8. I guess it'll be good to get them all collected in one place, but I was looking forward to reading stories that were NEW to me and only one of these fits the bill. *pout*

The Red Tent

I finished reading The Red Tent by Anita Diamant yesterday. It was an amazing book. It was so fascinating to read about women and what their lives were like during biblical times. The book itself is a fictionalization of what may have happened to Dinah, the only daughter of Jacob. I'm not religious at all, but the book had absolutely nothing to do with The Bible, but rather with the relationships between women. Since I didn't know the story of Dinah, I was surprised by many of the things that happened, probably making me enjoy the story that much more.

I have always thought that to be a woman is a wonderful, mysterious thing. This book captures all of the words that I wish I could say, but don't have the skill to. It does make me wish I knew my own female relatives more. Unfortunately, both of my grandmothers are dead. Perhaps this will inspire me to learn what my mother was like before she became Mom.

50 Greatest Movie Moments

I found the 50 Greatest Movie Moments from TV Guide today and it was so wonderful to find movies on here that I hadn't seen in a while. Some of them, like Singin' in the Rain, bring tears to my eyes just thinking about them. I think the D-Day scene from Saving Private Ryan was an excellent choice for number one. I had no idea what D-Day was really like and watching it with Steven and him explaining to me why it had to be that beach and how, despite the grim loss of life, it was an amazing victory for the Allies really brought home what WWII must have been like. Great list.

What Did She Say?

Steven and I watched the season premiere of Six Feet Under last night. Unfortunately, we got the pixelation you sometimes get with digital cable and I missed what Rico's cousin said to him at the funeral home. They were arguing about her picking up the $600 that was left on the tab of the funeral and she said to him, "I just gave your wife $500 for d...." She gave her $500 for what? Diapers (my first guess)? Drugs (my second guess)? Donkeys (just making things up at this point)? Did anyone see it? Can you please tell me what she said? Thanks!

The Count of Monte Cristo

Last night we went out to dinner with Steven's brother Alex at Chinese Cafe (excellent Chinese food) and afterwards decided to see a movie. We went to TheCount of Monte Cristo, and let me tell you, it was incredible. It was everything a movie should be - characters you care about, beautifully shot locations, excellent dialouge, and an amazing plot. Sadly, I have never read any Dumas (I believe I started The Three Muskateers in middle school, but I don't think I finished it), but this movie makes me want to rush out and get the book. It was one of the better movies I've seen in a long time and I highly recommend it if you're looking for something to see on a Saturday night.

Your Whole Life Is Leading Up To This.

In case you didn't know, the second season of Six Feet Under starts this Sunday. If you haven't seen it, HBO's been rerunning the first season and you can probably catch most of the shows before the new season starts. It is absolutely the most incredible show on television and I was thrilled when it won two Golden Globes, including best television drama. It's written by the Alan Ball, who also wrote the screenplay for American Beauty. The show itself is about a family that runs a mortuary, but that's like saying American Beauty was about an American family. I had watched the first three or four episodes without Steven when one of his co-workers raved about the show to him. He caught them in reruns with me and became instantly hooked. I was so glad he liked it. Meant I didn't have to dump him. ;-) Anyway, catch the show if you have HBO. You'll be glad you did.

Monty Python - Lego!

Since the moose post below has spawned Monty Python posts galore, I thought I'd share the funniest Quest for the Holy Grail link I've ever found. Watch the Camelot scene done entirely in Legos! The first time I saw this I was at work (working hard, obviously) and I started laughing out loud. Oops! Good thing it's a relaxed environment. :-)

(My favorite part of that whole sequence is the part where the prisoner in the dungeon is clapping in time with the music. That part always makes me lose it!)

Walkin' in Memphis

I'm listening to my mp3s on shuffle and Marc Cohn's version of "Walkin' in Memphis" came on. Does anyone remember The X-Files episode called "Postmodern Prometheus" that was done in black and white? I love it at the end when everyone goes to see Cher in concert and she's singing "Walkin' in Memphis" and Mulder and Scully dance together. That has got to be one of my favorite episodes. I'll be sad to see The X-Files ending this season, but I've been so unhappy with the show ever since David Duchovny left. At least I've got the first four seasons on DVD.

Rose Red

I finally finished Stephen King's Rose Red last night after it sitting on the Tivo for a week or so. I thought it started off pretty good, but by the last hour I was pretty bored and annoyed at the idiots that kept wandering off on their own ("I saw some iced tea in the kitchen. I'm going to go get a glass by myself. The Lord is always with me, I'll be fine." Uh huh. Right). Personally, I think if you're stupid enough to ever go anywhere in a haunted house by yourself, you deserve to die. It also bugged me that everyone was in seperate bedrooms. Did you people ever see a horror movie or read a book? Like I said, it started out kind of interesting, but by the end I was ready for it to be over. I so would have been Emery, the guy who kept advocating that the knock out the autistic girl who was keeping them locked in the house. If you find out who or what's keeping you in, you've got to take it out. Doesn't matter if it's a teenager or an old person, knock them out and run. Nancy Travis did a decent job, but by the third part was the typical, obsessed maniac. It wasn't terrible, but it could have been so much better. The Shining that ran on ABC back in 1999 was incredible, shame this wasn't as good.

Finally! Cool Exotic Fish!

Two nights ago we watched the Blue Planet - Seas of Life show, the one with the commercial that made me think, "Cool! Exotic fish!" and start Tivoing the series. It was absolutely incredible. I was completely amazed by the fish and other creatures that live thousands of feet below. Did you know that there are sharks 3,000 feet down? I didn't! I knew about some of the creatures (hatchet fish and angler fish, for example), but to see them in their habitat was something else entirely. As they kept saying, some of the creatures had never been seen before ever and the few that had had never been filmed. Check out screenshots from the show and then try and watch it yourself. For those with Tivo, this is the episode entitled "The Deep." It looks like they are replaying all four episodes back to back on February 10th and there are several more showings of each between then, so be sure and check it out!

If you would like your link to stay longer, click the PayPal button below and donate $10 for each week that you want your site to be linked.
