The Social Network & Life As We Know It

I know where I'll be the next two weekends!

This Friday, 'The Social Network' opens. I'm sure you heard about it, right? Well, if not, it's a movie about the creators of Facebook and the battle over its' rights after it became something to bargain with. The tagline says it all: "You don't get to 500 Million Friends without making a few enemies". So true. Check out the film's website HERE. Did I mention it stars Jesse Eisenberg & Justin Timberlake? I'm hearing Oscar buzz about this movie, no joke! The Social Network opens nationwide this Friday, October 1st.

Then, next Friday, October 8th 'Life As We Know It' opens. It stars Katherine Heigl, Josh Duhamel, & Josh Lucas. It seems like it's going to be a sweet, sappy movie. I'm a sucker for a sappy story. I cry during random commercials for petes sake! Not to mention that I, unlike some, actually like Katherine Heigl. I think she's a great actress and her natural comedic timing is spot on. I'm happy she left Grey's Anatomy to focus on her movie career. The fact that is has smexy Josh Duhamel doesn't hurt either! The film's website is HERE.

I suppose it's a good thing I'm doing well on my diet that, ehhmm.. doesn't allow MOVIE THEATER POPCORN! Because if it did, well, let's just say I'd need a new wardrobe. ;)

Christina Perri's "Jar of Hearts" Music Video

Remember back in July I posted my excitement over Christina Perri's amazing success after having her song featured in a dance routine on So You Think You Can Dance? No? See HERE. OK, now that you're with me... she's now a signed artist with Atlantic Records working on her debut album! She has come a long, long way... and it's so deserving! I love a true, happy, success story.

Congrats on all the success, Christina! I LOVED the video - it was perfect.

p.s. Recognize any of the dancers in her video? They're from SYTYCD! And, Stacey Tookey choreographed the video, the very same choreographer that fell in love with her song in the first place and opted to feature it on the show back in July!

Check out her updated bio on her WEBSITE after the jump:

True Blood: I miss you...

~ Jace Everett - Bad Things (True Blood Theme)

My True Blood withdrawal has initiated a yearning to watch it AGAIN from the very beginning. So, that’s exactly what I’m gonna do.

Pink @ the Grammys 2010 - a look back

Just recently Pink's song, "Glitter In The Air" hit the radio. Why it took so long, I haven't a clue, but I'm glad it did. I don't listen to the Top40 cookie cutter radio stations, no way... I heard it on Mix 101.5 in Raleigh, it's radio name matching very true to what they play, a mix. In y humble opinion, it's the best station in Raleigh. Anywho... I'm getting off topic.

After hearing this beautiful song on the radio recently it reminded me of the wonderful, awe-inspiring performance Pink gave at this year's Grammys. Do you remember? I know I do - it was the moment of the night and it resonated with me for many days to follow. It wasn't a typical performance and I LOVED that! I've always loved Pink, always. And after this I loved her more. I had "Glitter in the Air" on my iPod the day her album 'Funhouse' came out.

If you didn't watch the Grammys this past February, or didn't watch it online, and you have no idea what performance I'm talking about it, I've added it just for you. I watched it 3x just tonight! Mesmerizing every time.

The lyrics to the song are just as beautiful as her performance. I've added them below:

Have you ever fed a lover with just your hands?
Close your eyes and trust it, just trust it
Have you ever thrown a fist full of glitter in the air?
Have you ever looked fear in the face
And said I just don't care?

It's only half past the point of no return
The tip of the iceberg, the sun before the burn
The thunder before lightning, the breath before the phrase
Have you ever felt this way?

Have you ever hated yourself for staring at the phone?
Your whole life waiting on the ring to prove you're not alone
Have you ever been touched so gently you had to cry?
Have you ever invited a stranger to come inside?

It's only half past the point of oblivion
The hourglass on the table, the walk before the run
The breath before the kiss and the fear before the flames
Have you ever felt this way?

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

There you are, sitting in the garden
Clutching my coffee, calling me sugar
You called me sugar

Have you ever wished for an endless night?
Lassoed the moon and the stars and pulled that rope tight
Have you ever held your breath and asked yourself
Will it ever get better than tonight? Tonight

If only I were a cat...

Just chillin'!
Life would be so much simpler If I were a cat. Ahhhh.. the peace I would get!

This is my Munchkin kitty, Nugget. Yes, Munchkins are a real breed. Per my love Edward Cullen, "You can Google it". You'll be happy you did! :-)

What is your earliest known memory?

I was asked this earlier tonight on "Ask Me Anything" and I thought I'd share my answer... it's a good one.

"Falling out of a moving vehicle when I was 3. I wanted more room in the front seat of the car, so being a kid, I thought I’d just open the door, ya know… to make room. I went tumbling out of the car which was going over 40mph at the time, and ended up breaking my right collar bone and had rocks permanently embedded in my forehead! I think I learned my lesson. STAY PUT!"

Newly Addicted to TRUE BLOOD!

I feel like I am always late to the party!

For the past couple of years, I have heard how great True Blood is, how everyone is obsessed with it, how hot Eric is, how sexy the show is, etc, but I never watched it for myself. Maybe it was because I never cared to subscribe to HBO, maybe it was because the show started and I never got on board, I dunno... but I have a thing about not getting into a show after it has started, UNLESS I decide to do a "catching-up-on-a-show-a-thon". So, that's exactly what I did!

With the hubby being so incredibly busy lately, and basically having the weekends to myself, I figured why the hell not. Right?

I should tell everyone though that, my sister in law graciously and gleefully offered up her DVD set of True Blood season 1 to me over a year ago and I had it for well, months, but NEVER even opened it. I was sooooo stupid.

Anywho, moving on...

After work this past Friday afternoon I headed to my local Blockbuster store to exchange my Blockbuster Online movies for the first two discs of season one on Bluray. (only way to watch!) I was very, very pleased that they had it in stock. Not because I had any idea what to expect, but more so because I had a plan and I didn't want it to be ruined. I set out on a mission. I brought the DVD's home and started watching. And I watched some more. I started to develop butt sores. ;)

By Saturday afternoon, and two more trips to Blockbuster, I had nearly watched all of season one. I guess you could say that I was more than hooked. I was vested. I was a True Blood whore. I was ready to move onto season two by Sunday morning. I was getting sick and tired and going back and forth to Blockbuster and relying on them to actually have the next disc in the series, so after season two's episode three I placed a call into my local cable company. I had to know if HBO had the HBO OnDemand feature where I could watch it at my pace, and hopefully be ALOT more efficient! My first question to the cable company was, did they even have True Blood season two on HBO OnDemand? Oh by golly was I pleased to hear the answer to that question was, YES! Of course it also included season three, the current season. After hearing they would offer HBO to me for only $7 a month(that's 1/2 off!) for 12 months, I was SOLD! No more trips to Blockbuster for me! (for True Blood anyhow)

The remote was my friend all the way though the long Labor Day holiday. After last night, Tuesday, I can officially say that I am caught up to the current season, season three. But wouldn't you know that only AFTER I become engrossed in a new show, the damn season finale is this Sunday!? What?! That is so not fair. Why are the seasons so short? Most shows have a line-up of 20+ shows. Why is this different?

Maybe it's a good thing it only lasts for 12 episodes. Maybe. I don't know if I could take it if it were any longer, and I mean that in a good way! It's so fricking intoxicating! Wait... what the hell am I saying?! I DO want it to be longer. I don't want it to end. WHY?!

OK... so my thoughts on the show...

First of all, I am "Team Bill", not "Team Eric". He's not my type. At all. Edward Cullen, eat your heart out!

I think the show is fresh. Sexy. Gripping. Quirky. Erotic. Scary. Sad. Funny. It's awesome. I was honestly not expecting all the sex scenes, so THAT was a surprise! Not that I minded it one bit! The "man asses" on the show are some of the best "man asses" I've ever, ever seen! Lots and lots of nakedness!

Why the hell did I not start watching this show back in '08?! Oh, I know...

'Cause I'm always late to the damn party! ;)

You know where I'll be this Sunday at 9 p.m... ON MY FAVORITE CHAIR WITH MY EYES GLUED TO A CERTAIN 47" PIECE OF PLASTIC.

I'll be watching with all of y'all!

The New DWTS Cast, Season 11

It was announced last night who the new Dancing With The Stars cast would be via a press conference on ABC. I was actually watching another show on TV, and for that I'm very thankful, because If I had heard the cast being revealed live, I might have just vomited. Reading it online was a much more easier, more tolerable way to take in such crappy news.

I've been an avid fan of DWTS for damn near all 10 seasons the show has been on, but this is just outrageous! It's Dancing With The STARS, for petes sake! Since when are Bristol Palin & Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino stars? Wow. I really think ABC is grabbing for ratings here, which I don't quite understand it because the show has become more and more popular by a-list & b-list STARS! It's really become a who's-who type of show! Until now. I didn't think ABC needed to stoop so low. I know people enjoy the smut that is Jersey Shore, but c'mon already! Haven't we had enough seedy reality TV?! I know I have. I DO enjoy certain reality TV shows like Big Brother, American Idol, & SYTYCD, but I think it's gotten way out of hand. How many Bachelor(ette) shows can they possibly do? But, I digress...

Anywho... the cast of Dancing With The Stars:
fyi: "The Situation" was *ehmm* filming Jersey Shore and couldn't make the photo op.
Not sure where Michael Bolton was?

The Women:
  1. Brandy, Singer
  2. Audrina Partridge, (another) Reality show(s)
  3. Florence Henderson, Actress
  4. Margaret Cho, Comedian
  5. Jennifer Grey, Actress
  6. Bristol Palin, Politicians' Daughter (odd, I know!)
The Men:
  1. David Hasselhoff, Actor
  2. Kurt Warner, NFL player
  3. Kyle Massey, Actor
  4. Michael Bolton, Singer
  5. Rick Fox, NBA player
  6. Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Reality Show (ugh!)
I am looking forward to seeing how Jennifer Grey does, though. If I watch it!

What are your thoughts? Will you watch it? Or, will you sulk, moan, and cry like I plan on doing? *wink*
