The movies were our calling this past weekend. Audy and I took Vee to see My Little Pony: The Movie in theaters. She wore her Rainbow Dash hoodie and took two of her pony stuffed animals to wave around while watching the movie. I never thought as an adult I would actually get into this show. I didn’t care for it much as a kid but these ponies have got a gumption I don’t remember seeing in my childhood version. I love being able to get excited for the things she loves. It’s all about building those core memories!
After dropping Vee off with her grandmother, my dad, Audy, and I went to see Bladerunner 2049. Audy was surprised that I wanted to see it because my passion for going to the movies has seriously teetered out over the last few years. I remember a time where we lived at the movie theaters and a double feature was normalcy for us. I don’t know the last time I’ve actually WANTED to go to the movies. And you know why? Because TV is so damn good. There is much more originality available then ever before whereas movies have gone the complete opposite direction. I was glad I went though but was happy to come home, snuggle up on the couch, and watch the HBO doc on Steven Spielberg last night. For me, nothing is better than process and passion explained. His inspiration stemmed a lot from his family and childhood memories and seeing how it was incorporated into his films. Definitely check it out if you have the chance.
Other happenings over the last few weeks:
- So happy that Curb Your Enthusiasm is back!
- Obsessively watching Jane the Virgin. It’s like someone followed me during and after my pregnancy and is now sharing it on TV, except for the telenovela aspect. This show has become my therapy.
- Going to the Renaissance Festival. Crazy how I went there as teen and now taking Vee there to enjoy.
- Starting crazy budgets in my head to be prepared for the holiday season.
- Looking up designs for our soon DIY (mostly) pumpkins and home decor.
Love this message. Read through the caption.
When I was in middle school/high school, I subscribed to the punk rock philosophy (and still sorta do) and so when my co-worker showed me this book, I felt like my teenage self need it.
Wes Anderson is one of the few people whose movies I will actually go to the theater for and Isle of Dogs is no exception.
I’m sharing this recipe not because I tried it out but because the recipe calls for the chicken being baked at 450 (18 minutes uncovered, 5 minutes covered)! I tried it with a dry rub recipe I had and holy shit! Never have I tasted a more delicious chicken breast!
Love this project co-founded by Timothy Goodman that celebrates artists of all colors and walks of life: People of Craft.
ImageSnap would be a great way to produce artwork/photographs for the kitchen or bathroom area, not to mention as Christmas gifts.
Just started listening to Little Fires Everywhere on Audible.
I don’t play video or computer games but the 1930s inspired visuals of this game make me want to buy it. And these visual, btw, were hand drawn. !!!!!
Speaking of games, YOU CAN PLAY THE ORIGINAL WOLFENSTEIN IN YOUR BROWSER!
