I think my system just overloaded…

I think a lot of irony is involved…

Quentin Tarantino never disappoints me.

I think it’s fishy…

Last night I went and saw The Cove. Sitting in a dark theater by myself and crying wasn’t what I had planned, but it was definitely worth seeing. Playing at The Broadway now.

I think it cuts easily…

A question on everyone’s mind: Does Michael Cera act the same in the real life? 

Answer: Apparently.

I was at the Broadway the other day to see Away We Go and saw a poster for Paper Heart starring Charlyne Yi, a writer/musician/actress, and her quest to find love. It appears to be a documentary but it’s hard to tell. I researched it and even Wikipedia is throwing me off:

this film combines elements of documentary and traditional storytelling.[1]

This film was at the most recent Sundance Film Festival and my brother was really lucky to see it. He couldn’t tell if it’s a documentary or not either, but still recommends it. And with that, and finally being able to see the trailer, I want to see it. Coming to a theater near you, or a theater in a big city near you, August 7th. 

I think it’s a date…

Both my brother and my father told me about a movie I might be interested in. It sounded so familiar when they each explained it to me- a married couple who collected art throughout their life. Little did they know they were housing some of the most famous pieces of art over the years. It sounded like Herb & Dorothy. I learned about them in my Art History Seminar class this last semester. In this class I met and befriended Alexa Hall. Alexa taught me how to live, or rather how not to live. She told me about Fred Perry, Ray Bans, and how I look like Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. She drinks bubble gum frappe if you buy it for her, she feeds you when you cry (and makes you drink lemonade with vinegar…for funny) and she accompanies you when you cut over 15 inches of hair. Then she tells you how her mom dated all of her friends’ dads before I find out her mom did actually date my dad (why they broke up is sealed in both of their lips).

Alexa also taught me how to ditch class. How to ditch class, during class. How to ditch class on a day we learn about Herb & Dorothy.  How to ditch class, immediately after learning about Herb & Dorothy. How to ditch class and talk about how cute the couple is and how that class shouldn’t be 3 hours long. Well, now we can watch their cuteness for a full 2 hours at the Tower Theater in SLC. I won’t go with anyone else but her. You hear me Alexa??

I think before I eat…

It’s noon and I’m hungry. I’m not very familiar with the Bountiful area but I noticed a Chipotle on my way to work today. I went to their website to see what kind of vegetarian options there are and sort of got stuck on their section on treatment of animals. At Chipotle all their meat products are naturally raised and treated humanely. Still, I’m a little bothered by this sentence:

We believe pigs that are cared for in this way enjoy happier, healthier lives and produce the best pork we’ve ever tasted.

We believe pigs that are cared for in this way enjoy happier, healthier lives and produce the best pork we’ve ever tasted.

Sad.

While I’m on the topic, I’ll leave you with this trailer. It’s playing at the Broadway in SLC right now and I really, really want to see it. I don’t cry at movies, but I’m sure I will be at this one.

I think we CAN make an impact…

This is the exact text I received from Mackay today:

You should look up the trailer for “No Impact Man.” It makes me think you’re a little less crazy.

At first I got really excited when I read this because No Impact Man was at the Sundance Film Festival this last January and it was on the top of my list of movies I had to see. But with going to school full-time and volunteering at the Ogden theatre, I couldn’t make it work and I was bummed. I didn’t think I’d get the opportunity to see it because movies like these usually don’t go further than festivals…at least not far enough to get to me. So I’m stoked!

My next thought, Mackay thinks I’m crazy??
