Across the Universe

Had a date last night with my hubby and went to my favorite theatre, The Arclight Cinemas and saw Across the Universe. It was super good. A nice story intermixed with all Beatles songs sung by the actors who did a great job. There were some tearful moments, some phsycodelic moments and some celebrity appearances (Bono and Salma Hayek).
What a different time period that was and it makes me happy to be living in this time but also long for Yesteryear's gone by like the ones my parents came into adulthood in.
My favorite songs were all Incorporated into the movie and some that I had forgotten about.
A++ from me!

what a phucking spectorcle

How did that insane corspe get off with a mistrial. Is the LA justice system set on turning itself into a joke? Seriously.
I can't believe that phil spector (his name doesn't deserve caps) got off on a mistrial. IT'S INSANITY!
He is a crazy gun toting midget who has a long past of putting guns in pretty girls faces. He clearly has issues and he ADMITTED to killing her to his bodyguard.

really the bottom line for me is anyone who thinks this is a good look is clearly off his rocker and is capable of murder.

And what on earth is his new trophy wife Rachelle thinking getting in bed with this man who reportedy had a glass coffin build to show his wife what he would do to her if she ever cheated on him. Sealed alive in a glass coffin ~ ah, what a lovely reminder of love. And all I ever get from my husband are letters and jewelry, sucks for me.

act actor, act

In Hollywood, so much is defined by your public persona or rather if you're known enough to have one. Are you on IMDB, do you come up on Google? What's your myspace? are you out there and can dirt be dug up about you on the internet? I decided to Google people I know last night. I have a habit of doing, like most other people living in this town but hadn't done it for awhile. Anyways, I came up with some info on people I know but no dirt (not like I was looking) so I googled myself.
I wonder, should I be sad if I Google myself and nothing comes up on me. Is it like the proverbial tree; If I'm not on the Internet am I really here. Do I exist in the social sense. All it takes these days to be known is to answer a Miss Teen USA question in the ditsy-est way possible and *poof* you get 15 minutes of fame or rather public mockery that pays. Then you get to have a tag line the rest of your life. You will always be "that girl" and I bet that gets old really fast. So I'm glad the public knows little of me. I prefer to be just outside the circle but still close enough to have a conversation with those people every once and a while.
This is all on my mind right now because as we speak my better half is on his way to get his first set of head shots for his new manager. He's starting to submerse in "acting". I think he's very talented and hope he does well. Well enough to afford us a nicer life and hopefully no more 40 hour grind (maybe I'll cut back to PT) but you have to think about all the things you would be giving up and once the ball is in motion would you, could you or should you stop it.
I'm sure Brad never intended to be the "SEXIEST MAN ALIVE" and have every minute of his life tracked, tapped and discussed. Who really wants that part of it. Maybe they want the fortune and the access to what most get turned away from but they don't want to be stalked. And I'm just wondering if I/We could handle that if it was ever thrown our way and would loosing our anonimty be worth it? Would it just be better to choose adult careers and settle into them until we retire or should we try our hand at fate, give the dice a toss and hope we have enough luck and karma coming our way to win it big (but not too big).
Oh well, the decisions been made, the classes paid for and the dotted lines been signed....

How much I never knew about your life. There was always such a generational divide between you and I. You were always an 'old' grandma and I guess I just didn't think to ask about your stories when you were well enough to tell them. But to listen to your sisters talk about the life they shared with you, it makes me reget not hearing it all first hand from you.
What a different experience your life was to mine. You, the eldest girl of 10 kids. The second mother really. Leaving school at grade 7 to stay home and help out. Hearing how much you loved your mother Serafina (i didn't even know her name but I love it now that i do). You must have been more than a daughter to her, more like a best friend. And to have 4 sisters and 5 brothers, I can't even imaging that! Then to only have my mom and Joey. I know you never got over loosing him. I'm so sorry for how you must have felt after he passed.
And now you're gone. Hopefully at peace. I hope you know how much you were loved. How much my mom loves you and was there for you at the end. That has to be the saddest thing for a daughter to watch her mother to go through. Now I have a glimpse as to what I hope to NEVER EVER go through. I love her deeply, maybe even deeper than she loved you and look what it did to her. I'm sad for me but mostly sad for her. and for grandpa. The eighties are like a return to infanthood and the quality of life is not very full unfortunately. I hope he finds moments of happiness and elation. I hope we all do. Please look after us all from above and lead up in the right way. We love you. I love you.
