Sorry we’ve not been updating much; between my mind being occupied by nothing else other than “GottaQuitMyJobNOW!!GottaQuitMyJobNOW!!GottaQuitMyJobNOW!!GottaQuitMyJobNOW!!GottaQuitMyJobNOW!!” whilst searching for nonexistent employment and Ben writing/recording music and friends coming into town to visit, we’ve been pretty swamped.
Things also occupying our time include:
Alice in Wonderland (3D): I love Tim Burton. I love Helena Bonham Carter. I love Johnny Depp. I love the books of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass (although, oddly enough I’m not a real big fan of the Disney version). So it only makes sense that of course, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.
Fantastic Mr. Fox: GREAT movie!! An amazing use of stop-motion animation (the real thing–none of your fancy-schmancy CGI stuff here). And an adorable story to boot–highly recommended.
Garbage Warrior: A really fascinating documentary about a revolutionary architect. Makes us want to buy property and hire this guy to build us one of his gorgeous green homes.
Novacaine: This one is a super dark comedy that was really enjoyable. Of course, I’m a huge Helena Bonham Carter fan and I love Steve Martin’s dry sense of humour.
The Shawshank Redemption: A classic. Sadly, Ben had never seen this wonderful movie before; his life is now a bit more complete.
Heathers: Another classic, I always forget how much I love this movie. I also take a whole lot of hope in knowing that there is no way hollywood can cash in on a remake of this destructive ’80s fun.
LOST: We’ve started season five with the hopes of catching up to watching the final episode of the series in real time. I’m not a huge fan of this show; I think there are a whole lot of problems that could have very easily been avoided by some basic forethought. Ben loves this show. LOVES IT.
Fast Food Nation: I’m halfway through this book and it is beyond informative/astounding/wonderful. Love.
My Sister’s Keeper: I’ve never seen the movie and I’m 3/4 of the way through this book, but it is powerful stuff.
