Having a guest blogger was awesome! It gave me tons of time off, and what did I do with that time off you might ask? Found some new music duh, I'm probably late onto this bus seeing as this collaboration was announced in March, but better late then never I always say. Pretty much all I've listened to this weekend has been THE DEAD WEATHER. It is a collaboration of Alison Mosshart (The Kills, Discount), Jack White (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs), Dean Fertita(Queens of the Stone Age), and Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs and the Greenhornes). It's like a super band, kind of odd though because Jack White is an AMAZING guitar player, one of, if not the best in our generation, and on some of these songs he plays drums, which only makes me more aware of my complete and utter lack of skills. But this song blows my mind and the video is so awesome, click on the title song and hopefully it will be as epic to you as it is to me (especially with all they hype I just put in this paragraph, you'd think I was their agent haha).
Anyways, the week/weekend was great. For the Love of Pictures had a supercalifragilisticexpialidotious guest post on Thursday (Thanks again!). Friday I woke up and went golfing (got under a 50 woot!) then went to Applebee's and did some shopping. I bought this sweet statue, figurine? I'm not really sure what to call it haha
The cats clearly didn't know how to feel about it. I think it's kind of kitschy but awesome and can't wait to put it somewhere. After golf I took a nap and read some and then Cara finally got here. We ended up going to see The Ugly Truth with my mom and I am pretty glad my mom paid for it or I would have been angry at wasting my money. It was not my cup of tea, I didn't really expect it to be as I really don't like Katherine Heigl, but I liked her in Knocked Up, also I MOST DEFINITELY love Gerard Butler (especially in his tight black pants circa his turn as the Phantom of the Opera). So really It could've gone any way, but I thought it was pretty boring. The supporting cast was good, but the "jokes" just weren't funny to me. I felt like they were trying to hard to make it a Judd Apatow-esqe movie and failed big time. Cara likes Katherine Heigl and she didn't like the movie either, but my mom loved it, so who knows.
Anyways, after the movie we just talked for a while then passed out. Saturday we participated in a cavalcade of fun activities including, but not limited to:
1. Going to Lake Michigan to the beach.
2. Wine tasting.
4. Late night Wal-Mart run.
5. Eating copious amounts of ice cream.
Then this morning we watched some Gilmore Girls (Cara wanted to see what the fuss was about) and then she headed back. All-in-all a pretty solid weekend I'd say. Now I'm sitting here in my Mario boxers eating some Strawberry and Peanut butter M&M's (mmmmmmm) listening to The Smiths and thinking about playing some guitar but thinking that all the way across the room is way to far to walk to get it right now. Can't wait for the next guest blog post on Thursday!
P.S. Here's an article from Newsweek about why Katherine Heigl is annoying, I knew I wasn't the only one!
P.P.S. I need a name for my dog statue. Go!
