this movie won my heart based on one preview

last night when I locked myself in the basement to waste away on the stationary bike (mmmmmph) I caught a good portion of "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!" which is like, one of those weird movies I will watch on occasion because it reminds me of being fifteen, lying on my stomach in front of the TV and wondering where my life went (or where is it going?). and it makes me wonder what happened to Topher Grace's career? (see what happens when you think too much of yourself, ERIC FORMAN!)

anyway, during this hour or so I will never retrieve, I was formally introduced to the upcoming movie "Away We Go!" Now I'd heard about it and the brouhaha concerning Dave Eggers as the screenwriter, but I'd never given it a chance to - mmm, marinade - simply because I find Eggers hard to swallow. I tried "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius." it's dog-eared after twenty-five pages and then I threw it against my bedroom wall (hmm). "What Is the What," however, was an amazing book that I'll recommend to you, fullheartedly. I still need to give a few of his other books chances, mainly "And You Will Know Us By Our Velocity!" because of that white guilt et al.


but this movie. my god. I WANT TO SEE IT. I WANT TO SEE IT NOW. EVEN IF ALL THE PRETENTIOUS HIPSTER DOUCHEBAGS WILL BE OVER IT LIKE UGLY FLIES OVER HONEY:



a.) THE CAST (I really, really, really love Maggie Gyllenhaal)
b.) THE SOUNDTRACK (Alexi Murdoch, you're sounding a suspicious amount like Andrew Bird)
c.) THE STORY ITSELF (!!!)

I figure, Sam Mendes by way of Dave Eggers (or vice versa), Eggers has seemed less of a douchebag in recent years, so this movie is worth my time. or, it just looks fucking cute in an oddball way and I want to invest in it.

it will be out June 5th in everywhere across this beautiful country but Erie, of course. until then, I'll have to go see "Up!" and the second "Night at the Museum" because I'm a big six year old at heart. now where are my skittles.

  1. uhhh totally want to see night at the museum 2, also!

    (I heard they stuff so many historical figures into it that it's 'frenzied' but I'm not expecting Schindler's List or anything, so I think it will still be totes enjoyable.)

  2. LOL. I looooove your blog. I'm thouroughly enjoying reading it. Especially this post. I can't wait to see this movie either! I just watched the preview today. I'm trying to start my own movie blog too. I really want to get into something like that, I really think I'll like it. Hopefully I'll have more time over the summer though. And hopefully you won't stop writing because I found myself ROFLing for about ten minutes [=[=

    Keep up the awesome job <3

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!

Episode 2: Authority Always Wins Well here we are again, time to sink our twin hard-ons into the new episode! Before I get into the thick of things, again I must let you know HERE BE MASSIVE SPOILERS. And I’m going to recap this by the characters instead of a timeline account, because not much happens in this episode.
