Because I work on Thursday nights, I don't get in to watch the whole episode of The Secret Circle, I'm able to see less than 30 minutes, which is a bummer. I've just discovered you can now see full episodes on The CW. YES!! Sidebar, is it just me or is Gale's voice strange? It's as if he's hoarse or something, sounds kinda dry. Hmmm, maybe it's always been that way and I hadn't noticed, or maybe this is the way he wants Charles to sound.
I almost forgot. I was doing serials today and guess who was on the cover of Entrepreneur? My American Pickers hunk Mike Wolfe. I think he's so fine. I'm happy that his show and what he's doing (mainly cashing in by finding value in other people's treasure/junk) is getting recognized. I don't know what it is, but I'm very much smitten. That's all for tonight. I promise. lol
I just saw October Sky starring Jake Gyllenhaal. It was a very good movie and I can't believe I sat down through all of it. I didn't move and saw it from beginning to end. I work at a library and see the book all the time but never gave it a chance. After seeing the movie, I'll have to read the book. I always seem to do that, see the movie first, then read the book. Prime examples, Sarah Plain and Tall, Rumble Fish and the Outsiders, Sense and Sensibility, Godfather just to name a few. Why do I do this? Does it actually take a movie to pique my interest to read a book? By the looks of it, it does. lol But October Sky was a very, very good movie. Of course I got all misty and stuff. I'm just an old sentimental fool, what can I say. Jake's acting was superb. He was so cute. He was at that age where he's growing into his body, he was gawky and chubby cheeked. His smile has not changed at all and those eyes, he knows how to work those baby blues. I know most of you all have seen the movie, if not, you should. It was good.
I know I shouldn't. It's almost a sacrilege. I'm hoping everybody who sees this will forgive me after looking at it. I was in hysterics. I had to stop, gather my breath and wipe away the tears of laughter. I'm sure I split my side as well. So here it is. No, it's not 2 girls 1 cup, it's just a couple of "guys" with their rendition of the book Brokeback Mountain.
We got an upgrade on our cable service, in other words we now have a receiver. For the longest we got cable from the hole in the wall. I guess this is what you use for the 21st century or our apt. community just woke up and got on the train. The tech came in on Wednesday and hooked us up with the Dish 200 plan. Yeah, 200 of the most unnecessary crap you would even want to see, but to get my Bravo, WE, BET, HBO and other important channels I need to survive, we had to get the 200. Anywhoo, with me being old school, trying to figure out this big ass remote control was a doozy, but I got it. So, last evening after work, I was scanning the hundreds of channels, I saw the package included (nothing but) music channels. While I I was cutting the rug and putting a hump in my back dancing and listening to the 60's and 70's channels I scanned down more and found Sirius Soul Town. Wow!, I hit the mother load, this channel has all the music I grew up, Motown and Classic Soul. I'm so happy, you just don't know! OMG The Moments, Love On A Two Way street is on, I'm outta here. lol
Here's the latest funny SNL digital short starring Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and Adam Samberg. This time the guys explain how it's not gay being in a 3 way. lol
I have to say a few words on the passing of MachoMan Randy Savage. He was a delight to watch and to hear and I always enjoyed seeing his antics on TV. I was sorry to see that he was killed. While growing up, I was a big wrestling fan. My brother, myself and many others would buy our tickets and go to the Sam Houston Coliseum almost every Friday night to see wrestling. This was way before WWE, WWF, WXYZ (lol) and all the other wrestling federation junk, just straight wrestling. I knew wrestling was fake. Hell, our seats were so damn close to the ring that we saw wrestlers get their own personal razor blades to slice open their brows to make you think the punch that was given to them caused it. I didn't care, I wanted to believe it because I loved it so much. That's right I loved wrestling. My love of wrestling took hold on my son when I took him along at 5 and 6yrs. old. Things were changing then and I wasn't fascinated with it anymore, but my son went on to be a bigger fan of wrestling that I'd ever be. When I face booked him yesterday when I heard (yeah, I facebook...just with siblings and other kin, got about 7 friends lol) heck he almost acted as if Tupac had died again. lol I swear to all that's holy just Thursday, my son came to me with his laptop and showed me this clip of MachMan Randy Savage and I almost peed on myself because of the pure cheesiness of it. God was this a sign? Anyway brother, RIP! I will miss you!
I've been reacquainting myself with Meatloaf after watching him on Celebrity Apprentice and started watching his vids on Youtube. His rock opera way of singing made me a fan back in the 70's really quick. Even at his heaviness, I thought he was easy to my eyes and I always thought Meat was so handsome, even before Mr. Trump acknowledged how handsome he was on his show. So, the line that's been buzzing in my head for the last few weeks have been...
I want you, I need you, but there aint no way I'm ever gonna love you, so don't be sad, don't be sad, 'cause two out of three aint bad.
