Wild Life Of A Little Monster

Others are scared of me because of all the fun I have. Considered a vigilante by my Eponine.

Movies, Books, & Other Things

Movies - and some thoughts
  • ShortBus - I thought it might offend. I did squirm in my seat, though, on a couple of occasions. Strange that a movie with so much graphic sex can be about so many other things other than sex. It reminded me that "normal" is very relative. We each likely are on our very own short bus.
  • Nelly Don, A Stitch In Time - Very interesting and fascinating story about a Kansas Citian and her magical touch as well as about her life
  • An Inconvenient Truth - Scary thoughts of a potential future. Interesting and strong facts in this Al Gore documentary that should encourage us to change our behavior
  • Transamerica - A great story essentially about being a family and loving family members. That Dolly Parton theme song was really good. Felicity Huffman likley deserved an Oscar award
  • Brokeback Mountain - I actually don't think Heath Ledger's character was "gay." He fell in love with a person, who happened to be a male. As a cowboy found the show very interesting. Saw with Sexy Lady
  • RENT - Watched it more than once. Very much enjoyed. We really can't be defined by what we own because at some point it will belong to someone else. We just rent, and a new lease you are, my love.
  • Walk The Line - Truly a love story. Reese looks fantastic throughout. Good show.
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - Incredible special effects. Very dark. Way too long. Saw with SAK, Alan & Potter fans.
  • March of the Penguins - very interesting documentary, fascinating creatures, fantastic filming
  • Wedding Crashers - not near as funny as expected, too much love story, not enough wedding crashing
  • Four Brothers - violent, interesting thoughts on loyalty, Detroit Chamber of Commerce has to hate it
  • Madagascar - funny penguins, set up for a sequel; outing with SAK & Z Man
  • Hotel Rwanda - very sad, amazing that life had to go on and that the world ignored the situation; saw with Sexy Lady
  • Vera Drake - wow, simple lady who actually knew much; saw with MoMc
  • Constantine - same storyline as "Beauty and The Beast", can't believe Vern and Cowboy saw this
  • Bad Education - very interesting
  • Phantom of the Opera - very enjoyable, scenes made the stage show come to life in a different way; 10 years after seeing it on stage with SAK
  • Ray - truly talented but haunted and in darkness, not an inspiring movie
  • Sideways - craziness, funny
  • Kinsey - love can't be measured, we're each so much alike but yet so vastly different

    Movies at home - and some thoughts

  • Failure to Launch - Saw while sitting on the runway during an extra long layover in Richmond, Virginia while waiting out a storm preventing planes to land in D.C. It was a stupid movie, but made me laugh out loud several times during this stressful layover
  • Eight Below - Saw on plane flying to DC. The love story part was silly, but the story line about the dogs was amazing. Made me teary eyed
  • High School Musical - O loaned it to me. She has several favorite songs. Cute movie. People say it is similar to "Grease," but I disagree. A good and fun kid, sing-along musical
  • In The Bedroom - very sad story about grieving parents. I like Marisa Tomei and Sissy Spacek. Good movie
  • Drumline - learn to hear the band over the sound of your own drum
  • Friday Night Lights - Intense, what do you do when all you know is football?, sometimes it all comes down to a coin toss, give it all you can from your heart, the excitement of "the season," the movie deals with stereotypes, race, and is an interesting study of Odessa; Cowboy's dad lived only a few blocks from Permian High. In the summer Cowboy would walk up there and watch the band and football team practicing.
  • Shall We Dance? - having a witness to your life, don't be afraid to say you want a little more no matter how blessed you are
  • Finding Nemo - don't be scared, have to let go and believe; loaned from O and Mad
  • The Incredibles - if we were all superhuman, no one would be super human, so just put your hair back and celebrate being you
