Monday, Movie Recommendations, and Music

I know it's Monday, but I'm really feeling pretty good. And I'm planning on taking advantage of this Monday happiness and using it as a motivator for the rest of the week!

I've seen a couple of movies recently that I want to recommend.

First, Pineapple Express-if you want to laugh continuously for 2 hours than go see this movie. If you want something with a deeper meaning than this flick is not for you. It is the funniest new movie that I've seen in a long time. These actors are amazing...the fact that they can take stoner jokes to a new level, and keep people who are not high entertained for the entire film, pretty talented.



Next, Bringing Up Baby-All I have to say is when you mix Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, and a Leopard(which looks strangely like a cheata) fun ensues! A wonderful movie from 1938 that still holds up today. I always love Cary Grant, and Katharine Hepburn does an amazing job too.



Enough with the movies, on to another topic: Music!
As many of you know, I love music. It doesn't matter what type...I'm pretty much open to it all. There is a mood for everything.

So, I've added an iPod widget, on my sidebar, with five songs. It's a sampling of what I'm listening to, and I'm going to change the songs every week.

Check it out! :) You feed readers too, please.

Happy Monday!

You ask yourself: "Who was the best all-time most handsome and smooth and talented actor?"
a) Peter O'Toole
b) Tony Curtis
c) Gregory Peck
or
d) Cary Grant

ding ding ding! Cary Grant wins!

I have yet to see "Bringing Up Baby". However, TCM is showing it on Sat Aug 30th as part of their all-day tribute to Katherine Hepburn. I've got it marked on my mental calendar to finally check it out. Thanks for the recommendation.

As I type this, I am listening to your iPod widget. It's got one of my favorite songs, "Break My Stride". It's funny; last night I had the strangest dream that I would be visiting your blog and you would have this song on your widget.
