Last night Jesse and I met up with Jonah and his friend Jenny to see There Will Be Blood. It was: Extraordinary. Incredible. Mesmerizing. From Daniel Day-Lewis' terrifyingly great performance (as always) to PT Anderson's elegant pacing to Jonny Greenwood's soundtrack...I was blown away. Completely captivated. I won't say more; words won't do it justice.
Except (ha), that even though I was exhausted (from that whole bowling 'til two am/waking up at seven am for work deal of the previous night), when the movie let out three hours later, I couldn't shake its intensity and decided it would be a good tension-releaser to walk a few blocks in the lovely night to meet up with Adam and Sean. Walking in our apartment around three am, I didn't think I'd be able to keep my eyes open another second. But after crawling into bed, we spent another half hour or so talking about There Will Be Blood, PT Anderson, single-artist soundtracks, Daniel Day-Lewis' hands, etc etc etc...it's not a forgettable film.
Okay, random statements:
Jesse made me dinner. It was delicious! A+, boyfs, A+.
I don't think I've shared this on my blog yet, but Becca has informed us all that the world is ending on December 21, 2012. I shouldn't have been surprised to see an article in my Google Reader about it.
Also, if you're ever interested in my favorite articles from my Google Reader, I share things on my feed right HERE (which is also on the sidebar of this blog). I love the internets.
Places I visited in 2007 I'd never been to before: Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Detroit, Chicago, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, St. Louis, San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara. We all know who's responsible for this.
Last night I also saw a preview for the newest George Clooney starring/directed movie, Leatherheads. I'm interested.
If I had enough money, I'd want to get into comic books. Spiderman (the writers rebooted with a Peter Parker-makes-a-deal-with-the-devil storyline - interested!), X-Men (this, I've always loved), and Wonderwoman (first female head writer ever, or something like that - see, this is why I need to get into them). Could I BE more of a geek? Apparently, with enough money, yes!
Things I am saving up for slash why I can't quite have that comic book obsession yet: a new computer, apartment furnishings, new profesh work clothes, plane tickets to see the boyfs on tour, etc. Yes...it's my DO WANT list.
And finally, I am still really effin' tired.
