Before we start, let me show off my daughters new hair style. OK moving on.
This weekend I went to see “The Rise of the Planet of the Apes”. When I was a child, my parents used to watch the older movies on TV. What a far cry from those days. This is the prequel, so we get to see how they became super intelligent. The special effects were great, and I was surprised that this wasn’t in 3D, not that it needed it, but I could see how this movie would work.
I recommend it, it is a good time. I won’t give away the storyline. It was also nice to see Tom Felton (Harry Potter) doing something different and with an American accent to boot.
I finally watched “Spartacus” this weekend. The 1960 one with Kirk Douglas. Can you believe I’ve never seen it, I wonder how I get through life sometimes. It was good for its day. One the same line as all the other epics of the era. I have on my DVR “Cleopatra” with Elizabeth Taylor. That’s going to be a rainy day movie, as it is 4 ½ hours long. I’m slowly getting thru them all. I don’t know if I have any more to watch, I think I’ve seen them all now.
I saw “Source Code” this weekend. It of course reminds me of “Ground Hog Day” with the situation repeating itself, of course it was more action packed. I do have a problem with the whole Time Space Continuum thing. Didn’t these people see “Back to the Future” or “The Butterfly Effect” ??? You can’t change things, it will mess everything up.
“True Blood” is insane this season, in a good way. Last season was good, but it didn’t have me at the edge of my seat every week. They are being very creative, I’ll give them an A for effort. They are sure keeping their fans loyal.
“Design Star” is on again tonight. That annoying woman Karen is still there, she needs to go! I don’t like her at all. Her attitude sucks.
“Project Runway” has just concluded its 2nd week. The last show was the unconventional items challenge, they used supplies from a Pet Store. This is the challenge where skill and imagination meet. I think this week, they were spot on, although I liked the aquarium rocks shirt a lot.
* The aquarium rocks shirt was a shirt with the aquarium rocks glued to the muslin. The pattern was amazing, it looked like beadwork.
I don’t seem to be watching much stuff this summer. I’m tired of the reality shows, and will only watch “America’s Got Talent” during the finale. It all just bores me. I am looking forward to “THE X FACTOR” though, something new.
Yes, I’m still reading! LOL! Currently reading a lot of books about Angels, sub conscious mind and other books along those lines. I get in my moods, just like with movies. So not much fiction reading going on at the moment.
As far as life:
1) Mark goes back to school next week, he’s a Junior now.
2) Still working at the Temp job, I like it.
3) Still in Guitar, I’m taking Blues Guitar Basics
4) Still working on my fall décor crochet
