concerts, movies, crazytown

Tonight I am going to see Feist with Grizzly Bear at the Crystal. Woo Hoo! My lovely sister got me tickets as an early birthday present which was so sweet! (I pretended that I didn't know what she was talking about when she would pronounce "I've got the tickets!" over and over for the past two weeks. Since the show is tonight she sent me an email with this scan and the heading "Surprise!" hee hee. It made me laugh, anyway.)

Other than this fun thing tonight I am having one of those itchy antsy days where it seems like nothing (other than going to shows!) will ever go right and I will be miserable (except for two hours tonight!) forever and ever amen. This is no way to spend a lovely June day! What the hell is wrong with me? (and now I trudge again down the WtHiWWM path, with its strangling vines of doubt and the quicksand of insecurity and the overwrought metaphors whapping me in the head. I hate that path! but it's like there is a giant electro magnet at the end of it and I'm wearing a lead dress. [note to self: find something more attractive than lead dress for tonight.] [does lead even stick to magnets?]) (please feel free to submit your own self-pitying overwrought metaphors and analogies in the comment section. It is strangely mood-lifting, although it does NOT help with wardrobe dilemmas.)

And now for something completely different:

I love this top 100 movies list! The new AFI 100 list (AFI link goes to wikipedia with the old list and the new list side by side) makes me itchy ( ooh -- I can blame my itchiness on the AFI! thank god, a villain at last), but the Edward Copeland list makes me want to watch movies. Maybe because I have #72 and #50 sitting on top of the TV waiting to be watched? Maybe because it feels more balanced? I like that he's not considering movies from the past 10 years and is not limiting the list to American movies ( the AFI bent that rule like a pretzel anyway). I don't know. I think it also has to do with it being the considered list of a knowledgeable individual instead of the declarations of a committee. Whatever the reason, it's an excellent, intriguing list and you should check it out!

I'm in a better mood already.

  1. Wow. Thanks Jen for the kind words.

  2. Thanks for the great list. As someone who is interested in film but by no means an expert, it gives me some wonderful ideas for what to watch next!
