We went and saw Oceans 13 at the theater. Man do they put Brad Pitt in some awesome suits! And the movie was such a fun bit of nonsense. I think I'd still be going to see it when it was Oceans 29.
Rented Impromptu from the library. Its a comedy about George Sands and Chopin. Plus it has Bernadette Peters and Emma Thompson in it. I thought it was sweet and fun. I think I'm in a period piece kind of mood lately so this fit the bill nicely.
And lastly, I rewatched Last of the Mohicans. Great music and such fine-looking actors. And one of the most romantic movies I know of.

Then I watched the BBC series of Bleak House and loved it! I even got the boy to watch it with me. Amazing. Anyway, they did a terrific job even if Gillian Welch was all pinched looking - it went with the character. Loved it loved it loved it!

And while playing around with the felt bits I discovered the perfect pink afro. So I wanna try my hand at a gorgeous felt doll. I think she'll need some awesome felt bell bottomed pants .
I may try again at her face since I'm not happy with my first try.
I ruined it. I thought it was too dull, and had the genius idea to do a silhouette over top of it in a translucent gold. Seemed like a good idea at the time...
Well the goldish silhouette just looked like a dirty smudge. (Note to self - Freezer paper stencils don't work so great over painted canvas). So I decided that I would just modge pode the silhouette cut out over the painting as a last minute attempt to salvage it. Here's the awful results:
Blech! Oh well - it was a learning experience.
I'm not losing this blog - just branching out a wee bit. Check it out!

I caught Fight Club on tv. I'm probably the last person in the world to watch this one, but I promise its been on my to-be-watched list forever! Anyway, I really liked it. Edward Norton kicks ass. Brad Pitt is enjoyable. The only slight downside is violent movies make me a touch feisty myself. (My husband thinks I should never be allowed to watch Kill Bill after last time when his friend and I started playing ninja warriors in the parking lot).
I also borrowed Into the Woods from the library. Bernadette Peters is great, but I was worried about watching this one. I had a roommate in college who was freakily obsessed with this soundtrack. The first half was a bit of a yawn, but I really liked the second half when things got more serious. And some of the songs really are pretty.
And this week's main obsession has been season three of Deadwood. How can you not love a show with lines like "When he ain't lying Al's the most honorable man you'll meet." So sad that there won't be any more of this show. The character development in this was just amazing.

And also Lawrence of Arabia. All I can say is Peter O'Toole = hot. I guess that makes the desert extra hot. Oh and racing camels are badass!
Get your very own daemon here.
Thanks for the tip, Small Fox!
