A Day in the Life

I sawr a film today, oh boy. . .

- Lennon/McCartney

I went to see the Larry the Cable Guy movie with a friend of mine today. I will now attempt to do a good review without ruining the story ahead of time for anybody. :) :) :)

I like to laugh. I like to watch movies that make me laugh. Larry the cable guy is a pretty funny guy. He's great in the movie. I laughed a lot. The story and the writing are top-notch, and the humor is very well-paced. One of the things that I don't like in movies of this type is that some humor is overdone or overworked. That is not the case with Larry.

A few of the other things I observed during the movie were that most, if not all, the other characters in the movie are umm, not too good, imo. This didn't seem to come from the writing, more the acting. The music track was also pretty nonexistent except for 2 songs, one of which I didn't think fit the scene. The film is also totally lacking in any political message, not that I'm disappointed. :) :) However, most of the people who like movies of this genre probably won't care about those things.

If you are a mother out there, the language and situationss sometimes may not be appropriate for the under 10 or so crowd, but I think any teenager shouldn't have a problem with this one.

In summmation, if you like Larry the cable guy at all, or if you like good whimsical comedies, this one's pretty good. While it won't go to Cannes, it's excellent submariner fare; worth every dime of the $5.00 I paid.

Your Move/All Good People

Well, it seems that my blog here has gotten a little notice of late. :) My friends, I know that I say very little in a long way, but bear with me. I like to talk. :) :) :)

Ahhh. but what to talk about?

Well, the easiest thing right now is something akin to a brain teaser - again, maybe I can do this on a regular basis. Anyways, this one goes like this:

The answer I'm looking for is the band/artist's name and the name of the album. The list is a complete song list of that album. :) Willing to try? Here goes:

1. Brown Sugar
2. Sway
3. Wild Horses
4. Can't You Hear Me Knocking
5. You Gotta Move
6. Bitch
7. I Got the Blues
8. Sister Morphine
9. Dead Flowers
10 Moonlight Mile

The best of luck to all.

Fox on the Run

OK. Maybe these will be better if I try to keep the posts shorter. The fun stuff is at the end, anyway.

Anyways, to explain a little, about a week back I actually got contacted by another blogger - I am not alone!!!! :) It got me to thinking a little bit about blogging my own stuff on a more regular basis. Well, I'm not good at regular basis things when I'm not getting paid for it, so I spent a little time thinking. . .and I went into a few other blogs to see wtf works. :) (cheater, cheater) :)

I see a lot of lists, music lists. I like music. I like music lists. I also like to play games. Soooo. . . . .
Below is a music list that has a common theme. Take a look and you will see it's a pretty easy theme to pick out.

1. Horse with no Name - America
2. Fox on the Run - Sweet
3. Mockingbird - Simon/Taylor
4. Bat out of Hell - Meatloaf
5. Diamond Dogs - David Bowie
6. Crocodile Rock - Elton John
7. Fly Like an Eagle - Steve Miller Band
8. Rock Lobster - B-52s
9. Great White Buffalo - Nugent
10. Year of the Cat - Al Stewart

OK, ok, so I know some of you are thinking, "Whoa, 70s stuff, hey, cool!!", but that isn't quite what I'm looking for here. No, a lot of the stuff I know is 70s stuff. :) Now, if you said, "Hmmmm, looks like a critter list, to me" I'd tell ya BINGO! You win a whole e-prize. It's like that. Easy, huh? :)

The e-prize, in case you are wondering, is that of a sense of satisfaction in solving a silly, minor mind-teaser. :) Enjoy!!

Well, now that I've put my best paw in my mouth, I will try to send up one of these lists weekly. Or thereabouts. Maybe. Kinda depends. :) If nobody gets it untill the next posting, I'll provide the answer. Oh, and I almost forgot to tell you, a good working knowledge of the song lyrics involved :) :) :) is very helpful.

Anyways, with no further ado. . . . .

1. Closing Time - Semisonic
2. Sunshine on My Shoulder - John Denver
3. Surfin' Bird - The Trashmen
4. Summertime Blues - The Who
5. Mr. Tambourine Man - The Byrds
6. 1999 - Prince
7. Quinn the Eskimo - Manfred Man's Earth Band
8. All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
9. Knockin' on Heaven's Door - GunsNRoses
10. Tangled up in Blue - Bob Dylan

Best of luck :) :) :)
