Immaculate Inception

Did you see Inception with the always awesome Leonardo DiCaprio? I for one loved it! So much. There were a lot of little things that you had to look for and pay attention to and you leave the theater practically reeling. A couple of the friends I went and saw it with said they dreamed about it the night after.

If you haven't seen it - SEE IT. If you have seen it, enjoy this little vid. (Don't worry - If you watch this video and haven't seen it yet, it won't give anything away I don't think.)

2 Side notes

As I was looking up pictures for Sophie's movie post - I came across this one and it made me so happy:

A) Because it's ironical
B) Because they are playing scrabble and I'm obsessed with scrabble on my iPhone. If you want to play with me I would love it! My user name is PrettyKate (also I must explain my user name: There is a favorite song of mine by INXS called 'Mediate'. The whole song is words that rhyme with 'mediate'. When I was little, I could have sworn he said 'Pretty Kate' and not 'pedicate'. That combined with the other part of the song where there is heavy breathing - made this song my favorite! By the way, I need to make a future post about songs that have creepy heavy breathing in them - I don't know why but I just love them. Anyway, it wasn't until we had the internet and I could look up the lyrics to that song and guess what?? I was right! Way cool.)
C) Because the other words in the raptor scrabble game are potty words!! Love it!


As I was writing up the last post, I was thinking of my own favorite olden time movie moments and one of my favorites as a kid was 'Drop Dead Fred'. Classic! The best part is when the girl comes out in her purple formal gown and Fred says, "You look like a big bruise!"

Also, as I was googling Drop Dead Fred... I found out that they are doing a remake of it in 2011!!! Heck yes! That is going to be phenomenal. They already have Russell Brand committed to play Fred. I love Russell Brand. Did you see him in Bedtime Stories? He is so yucky and so British... I can't help but be attracted to him.

Meet Sophie

She's my guest blogger today! Isn't she just the cutest?

Funny thing is, is that Sophie is my guest blogger without knowing it! A little creepy and a little rude of me, but I got her to tell me some great stuff today. Don't hate me, Sophie dear.

Topic: Great movies from our childhood (probably enjoyed via VHS or TBS)

Here is Sophie's list of great movies and great quotes in no particular order:
  • Do you remember that first scene of Jurassic Park when the raptor eats those people and the Australian guy keeps screaming, "Shoot her! Shoot her!"? Honorable mention from same said movie: "Clever girl". 
  • I also really enjoy that scene from Independence Day where Will Smith punches the alien and says, "Welcome to Earf"
  • Goonies: "Hey you guysssss"
  • While You were Sleeping when the extra playing the paper delivery boy falls off his bike.
  • Kindergarten cop: "It's not a tumor". Or, even better, when all the kids are describing "Who is your daddy, and what does he do."
  • Back to the Future when the band member gets on the phone behind stage and has his manager listen to the brand new sound.
  • I like Tommy Lee's stand off with Harrison Ford in the run off tunnels right before Harry jumps into the river below in the Fugitive  
Thanks, Soph! She said she's going to check out her VHS collection and get back to me with even more gems. Can't wait!

My crush of the week...

is on a redhead. Shocker! I love me the redheads, what can I say?

This week I'd like to highlight a new artist that I've been listening to - Active Child - which is the new project from choirboy-turned-indie pop musician Pat Grossi. I need him to need me.

A redhead that rocks the harp? Just my style! My favorite song is "When Your Love is Safe". I've heard 3 different versions of it so far and I love them all. The acoustic version is so beautiful:

Yesterday they just released the 80's pop version of this song for free download and it is so great!

He's coming in September... Who's in? Someone really needs to go with me if only to restrain me from jumping onstage and sitting in his lap as he strums his harp.

Two of my favorites combined!

Darling Summer

This is me and my not so little brother at a recent and wonderful pool party (and why oh why do I type out 'poop' every single time I want to type out 'pool'?? See! I just did it there and had to fix it. My fingers have been trained to type 'poop' no matter what! Sad sad sad that it's second nature to be a potty mouth. I'll grow up someday.)

Going to lunch... Enjoy this vid while I'm gone

I've probably listened this song 30 times in the last 3 days. I LOVE IT. I love a good song where I can just dance my party pants off. And the music vid is pretty freaking sweet, too. And is this guy totally hot or what? I didn't think he was the first 5 times I watched it, but then after the 6th time... I'm totally digging him. I love when you can hear people's accents when they sing! Maybe that's it. Or maybe it's because he's paired with this ridiculously beautiful woman... Does that make him hotter? When I have my own music video, I'm definitely casting Conan O'Brien as my love interest - because he is HOT. Definitely.

Love this so much

I just received this forward this morning and I loved it so much that I had to blog it. I don't send forwards... very often, but this one I want to send to every person I have ever met!

READ this email thread...

From: Shannon Walkley
Date: Monday 21 June 2010 9.15am
To: David Thorne
Subject: Poster

I opened the screen door yesterday and my cat got out and has been missing since then so I was wondering if you are not to busy you could make a poster for me.

It has to be A4 and I will photocopy it and put it around my suburb this afternoon.

SHANNON: This is the only photo of her I have she answers to the name Missy and is black and white about 8 months old. Missing on Harper Street and my phone number.

Thanks, Shan.

DAVID: Dear Shannon,
That is shocking news. Although I have two clients expecting completed work this afternoon, I will, of course, drop everything and do whatever it takes to facilitate the speedy return of Missy.
Regards, David

SHANNON: yeah ok thanks. I know you don't like cats but I am really worried about mine. I have to leave at 1pm today.

DAVID: Dear Shannon,
I never said I don't like cats. Attached poster as requested.
Regards, David

SHANNON: Yeah that's not what I was looking for at all. it looks like a movie and how come the photo of Missy is so small?

DAVID: Dear Shannon,
It's a design thing. The cat is lost in the negative space.
Regards, David

SHANNON: That's just stupid. Can you do it properly please? I am extremely emotional over this and was up all night in tears. you seem to think it is funny. Can you make the photo bigger please and fix the text and do it in colour please. Thanks

DAVID: Having worked with designers for a few years now, I would have assumed you understood, despite our vague suggestions otherwise, we do not welcome constructive criticism. I don't come downstairs and tell you how to send text messages, log onto Facebook and look out the window. I have amended and attached the poster as per your instructions.
Regards, David

SHANNON: This is worse than the other one. can you make it so it shows the whole photo of Missy and delete the stupid text that says missing missy off it? I just want it to say Lost.

DAVID: Subject: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Poster

SHANNON: yeah can you do the poster or not? I just want a photo and the word lost and the telephone number and when and where she was lost and her name. Not like a movie poster or anything stupid. I have to leave early today. If it was your cat I would help you. Thanks.

DAVID: Subject: Awww
Dear Shannon,
I don't have a cat. I once agreed to look after a friend's cat for a week but after he dropped it off at my apartment and explained the concept of kitty litter. I have attached the amended version of your poster as per your detailed instructions.
Regards, David

SHANNON: Thats not my cat. where did you get that picture from? That cat is orange. I gave you a photo of my cat.

DAVID: I know, but that one is cute. As Missy has quite possibly met any one of several violent ends, it is possible you might get a better cat out of this. If anybody calls and says "I haven't seen you orange cat but I did find a black and white one with its hind legs run over by a car, do you want it?" you can politely decline and save yourself a costly veterinarian bill.
Regards, David

Subject: Re: Re: Re: Re: Awww

SHANNON: I didn't say there was a reward. I don't have $2000 dollars. What did you even put that there for? Apart from that it is perfect can you please remove the reward bit. Thanks Shan.

DAVID: Subject Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Awww

SHANNON: Can you just please take the reward bit off altogether? I have to leave in ten minutes and I still have to make photocopies of it.

DAVID: Subject: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Awww

SHANNON: Fine. That will have to do.

Isaiah Mustafa..... You win

Why do I love him? Is it his overtly manly ways? Is it because he is so sensitive to me and my needs? Is it because he is so nautical and all things nautical excite me? Maybe it's his lack of clothing? At any rate, I cannot get enough of him.

P.S. Watch some of these - genius. Oh, how I've always wanted a "Love-filled trust explosion" with a man. Someday soon, yeah?

I love comedian Mike Birbiglia. He's on This American Life a lot and I think he is so weirdly funny. One of my favorite things that he says is:

"I used to think I was a little unstable, and then I met every girl I've ever dated. And they kinda keep it under wraps for a while, you know? Everything seems cool and about 2 months in she's like, "Maybe this weekend we could I'M CRAAAAAZY!!!!""

Sad but sometimes very true.

(btw here's the vid of this for your enjoyment)

One of my favorite movie moments

And yes, I quote this regularly without anybody catching on. It's for my own amusement, really.
