Also, plans have been made YET AGAIN to go see The Hobbit. We keep getting disrupted by silly things like having bought tickets to Florida or a huge snow storm. This Saturday, maybe we'll be able to get it to really happen. :)

Because one must have something to look forward to. :)

I started re-reading Lord of the Rings about a month ago, though haven't got far and don't know if I'll finish because I'm SO scattered, lately. But last night I started dancing around and Eor asked what I was dancing to. "A chant [Hawk] made up when we were in high school, about Tom Bombadil." When I think about it, he must have been about thirteen. That's... actually kind of a hardcore fan, writing little chants about Tolkien characters when he was thirteen. It was simple, but a lot of fun if you have about three people playing. You can sing either line, randomly, and just step on the end of the last one sung:

And his coat is blue
And his boots are mellow-yellow
And his boots are mellow-yellow
And his boots are mellow-yellow
And his coat is blue
And his coat is blue
And his boots are mellow-yellow

I never really got his big fascination with Tom Bombadil, I thought he was a rather boring character, actually, and didn't seem to really advance the story in any way, but Hawk was tremendously disappointed that they left him out of the movie. Although, he didn't realize they had done so, for a while, because his friends told him that part happened when he was in the bathroom. Mean, or actually trying to save him from a disappointment?

I really need to go read my new books, now. Or LOTR. I need to drag myself away from the computer.

I just finished watching "Girl From Rio" - [livejournal.com profile] mizzmarvel, thank you so much for giving me that, I loved it! :) I had no idea what to expect, and the flamy mobster boss surprised me. :) Through the entire thing there was this tension of "this can only end in tears," and then at the end what seemed like a throw-away scene early on in the movie comes back and bites. And there's a gorgeous female lead who seems not so bright but turns out to be bright enough, sweet, and kick ass, which is cool. :)

Would gladly watch again. :)

(PS - And it has Hugh Laurie being an awesomely dorky loser, which is awesome. :))
Eor and I went to the Old Port Festival with [livejournal.com profile] littleredhead and [livejournal.com profile] groundctrl yesterday, and I acquired a silver (colored) ankle bracelet with little bells on it for $4, and a quite impressively dark red sunburn at the base of my neck for free. :) Photos (of the festival, not my red neck) will be forthcoming, I swear - I won't be lazy this time like I was with the Florida photos. Or rather, I'll BE lazy and find an easier way to do it, that way it might get done. I got all hung up on editing and choosing and renaming those Florida pics, that's what killed my momentum.

We haven't seen them in so long I'm afraid that I must have babbled like a crazy person. Ah, well.

Later we went to see Iron Man with a woman from binne. Very cool to meet her, she seems quite nice, and we hope to hang with her again, sometime. The movie was a lot of fun, but I'm not quite sure why people are so gaga over it. I do agree, however, that Robert Downey Jr. did a great job. I like how they've retconned the Tony Stark character - the thing that was really lacking in the comic, when I was a kid, was that Stark was just square and boring. Now he's this goofy, impetuous genius, and it works well.

1) The last couple of times Eor and I went to Shere Punjab (the Indian restaurant in Brunswick which [livejournal.com profile] littleredhead and [livejournal.com profile] groundctrl introduced us who) we've heard this cover of "Pretty Woman" which is really good. Eor points out that they do quite different things with the different parts of the song, making it more complex. Well, today he decided to track down where it comes from so he can get a copy, which let to us checking out this video on YouTube. Apparently it's from a movie, "Kal Ho Na Ho" - which we really might have to see, now! Watch this video if you can. It is musically good, but also some of the stuff they did in the video made me literally laugh 'til I cried - in a good way! With them, I promise! :)

2) I have "Hogfather"!!!

Saw OotP last night - great! Very fun, well done, a great time. :) I have some more in-depth things I hope to get around to saying, but right now it's a gorgeous day outside and we really have to go out and do something. Anything.

Pirates!  Of the Caribbean!  I saw Curse of the Black Pearl last night and Dead Man's Chest tonight.  I liked them. :) 

Now, sleep.

I must draw your attention to [livejournal.com profile] eor's Better Than Chocolate icons, because, hey, Karyn Dwyer is amazingly gorgeous! :)  Honestly, I can't believe this movie made 30 million dollars.  It was crammed with cliches and had the acting level of an After School Special, but you really must see it. :)  And not only for Karyn Dwyer posing 'nude but for signs.'  Although that would be enough.

a note on After School Special, and an IMDB walk )
