Watch Out for The Ghouls And Goblins!!

May I just say- Happy Halloween!! Even though you can't tell it today, because of my lack of costume, Halloween is my favorite Holiday...Ever!! It's true! Costumes, popcorn, candy, scary movies, black, fall weather, what's not to love really? Since it's my favorite Holiday, but I'm not wearing a costume or anything I decided that I would countdown my Favorite Scary Movies that people watch during Halloween time. Just so you know Hocus Pocus is my favorite Halloween movie, but it's not exactly scary. Enjoy...


#5: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre:
I don't find this movie particularly scary, but the reason it made my list is because it's a classic. Granted this is the remake version, but with either you can't really go wrong. It didn't make me jump out of my skin or anything, but it definitely is enough to make you never want to run into that family. Besides it's got a guy wearing a face on top of his face that he cut off of someone's head. Who does that?




#4: The Crazies:
This movie is incredible. It's literally your basic Zombie movie, but with the explanation of what happened. All of the evidence in this movie proves that an actual "zombie apocalypse" can in fact happen. No, I'm not talking the zombies that you see in most movies/tv shows, I'm talking about people that are so out of their minds that they become zombie-like by nature. What's going to cause zombies you ask? Chemical Warfare and Drugs...That's What!  


#3: The Scream Franchise:
The first one is classic. It literally reinvented the Slasher Film and rebooted the horror Genre. It's exactly what us Horror Fanatics needed. You can't really go wrong with Wes Craven anyways. This is your basic teen slasher flick that included sex, drugs, and drinking. The only difference is, it did what no movie before it did. It talks about itself and the "rules" to survive a horror movie. The first one was great and is followed by three more awesome ones!



#2: Halloween:
The original Halloween didn't scare me all that much and I watched it when I was little. It had already been out probably fifteen or so years before I was born and watched it. I'm sorry, but it just didn't. I was convinced that I could out run Michael and that since I didn't babysit that I was fine. He just didn't scare me and I couldn't figure out why none of them could get away from him. Flash forward thirty years and let Rob Zombie take the lead and let's just say the first time I watched his remake and it's sequel I was pretty jumpy. 


#1: A Nightmare On Elm Street:
Holy crap! Y'all I have no lie to tell, I was around three years old the first time I ever seen a NOES movie and Freddy Kreuger terrified me. For twenty years that man has petrified me. Well, when the remake came out I was all- "I'm twenty years old, I'm grown, this won't effect me, it's a new guy". I never thought that anyone could be more terrifying than Robert Englund. So what did I do? I went to see it in the theater, of course. I was so wrong! I was more terrified at twenty with Jackie Earle Haley, than I ever was at three with Robert. It was pitiful. I ended up on the lap of the guy sitting next to me. It sounds bad, but his girlfriend was there in hiding with me.

Scary Movies are my absolute favorite, unless someone calls and asks me what my favorite scary movie is. Then my answer is that I don't like them at all. Watch Scream, you'll understand. These are just five of my favorite ones, not all of the ones I like. Besides Slasher Flicks, anything about Hauntings and Witches are great! Especially if they're true stories :) And of course let's not forget The Strangers, The Evil Dead (original and remake), any Vampire movie, A Haunting in Connecticut, and Friday the 13th. You can't go wrong with Classic Horror or good scary movies in my opinion. Except Chucky...That's not ok. Ever. I just wanted to do a little something for Halloween. Ya'll Be Safe, and Watch out for the Ghouls and Goblins!!

Someday I Will

  • Take kick-boxing...
    I've said this forever, and I truly mean it. One of these days when I'm healthier and skinnier (I know good luck) I will be taking kick-boxing. Don't ask me why, because I honestly don't know. All I know is I have been obsessed with Fight Club for as long as I can remember, and for some strange reason when I think Fight Club I think kick-boxing. Yeah, I don't know either.
  • Write an historical-romance/fiction novel...
    Anyone that knows me at all, knows that I love to read. I read everything from Classic British Literature to Stars Magazine. Literally, anything. I have very eclectic taste when it comes to my reading habits. It just depends on my mood. I also love to write. Always have. My dream/ambition when I was growing up was to be an Investigative Journalist. Unfortunately I had to put that dream on hold, but I still write. Can you tell? Like all other women I enjoy a good romance novel, but I also want it to have some element to it. Since I want to write a novel, I think that it's only appropriate that it be this kind. I think I could pull it off.
  • Have really, really good hair...
    This one should be pretty self explanatory. I'm a girl. I'm in my early twenties. The world is my oyster. Blah, blah, blah, I just want really good/pretty hair that I can curl and wash and play with. Is that so much to ask for? I think not. I'm already pretty terrible looking, so the least that can go right is my hair. Right?
  • Write letters to the Soldiers who serve our Country...
    When I was in fifth grade our teachers made us participate in "penpal" writing with some kids from Alabama. I didn't like it. However, I have a great respect for the Men/Women that serve our Country. Without them, we would be nothing. To me the least I can do is write them a letter to thank them. It's not much, and I have no clue what I would write, but I think that the least we could do is that. Do this people!
  • Talk someone into dressing up in a "team/duo" costume with me...
    In true Halloween Fashion, why not? I love dressing up for Holidays (even though I don't even like many Holidays), but I've always been around fuddy-duddies. I've wanted someone to dress up with me for years as a duo/team, but to no avail. The closest I got was when I was Mrs. Clause and Justin played my Elf. Hey! It counts dang it!
  • Take a trip to Salem Mass, New Orleans, and Ireland...
    I know what you're thinking. You're thinking what in the heck kind of list is this? Well, for those of you that are wondering, this is the list of the top three places that I want to go. I have always been fascinated with all three of them and would like to see them. I know it's strange, but then again that's just me.
  • Read the entire Outlander series...
    I started reading this series around five/six years ago when my Senior English honors teacher (Mrs. Lynch) suggested them to me, and have only managed to get through the first one and a little bit of the second. The sad thing is I own them all and really like them. I really do. The problem is they're like 700 pages long, which would be fine, but it's really small print. Like teeny-tiny. One day though, I will read them all.
  • Take a really excellent picture...
    This is more of a hope than a goal. I take really bad pictures. I look goofy in all of them. My eye squints, my smile/teeth are crooked, and my head is a funny shape. Anymore questions? 
  • Finish watching all of the tv shows that I started...
    I start shows all the time (thanks NetFlix) and before I'm through with one, I'll find another one and start watching it. Then it drives me crazy not knowing what's going on. I know I should just stick to one at a time, but I can't. Except SOA which I watch re-runs of in between all of the shows. Right now on the list is Hell on Wheels, The Tudors, Parenthood, Weeds, MadMen, The Vampire Diaries, and True Blood. Except True Blood isn't on Netflix...Booo!
  • Make a list of all of my favorite things...
    I love Pro/Con lists and use them to make most of the important decisions in my life. Actually, I love lists in general, music lists, grocery lists, book lists, lists of anything really. The list of All of my favorite things though, might take a more thorough minute.
  • Take part in a Flash Mob...
    Remember that time that I told you about my dream of playing Mimi, that I could never accomplish because I have no talent and stage fright? Well, I'm thinking that a Flash Mob would be totally different. Granted I can't dance or sing, but Flash Mobs are always the exception to that. They are amazing! And look like so much fun! One day, I will be apart of this.

{{Also, I would just like to say Happy Halloween Eve People!! Halloween is my favorite Holiday...Ever!! Even though you won't be able to tell it tomorrow, it is. This will be the first year (besides last year) in a long time that I won't be dressed up in a costume for work. For a couple reasons actually, one being that it's stormy and disgusting outside, and two I heard they cancelled Halloween for tomorrow. Not sure they can officially really do that, but apparently that's what the word is. When I was little you straight up went out whether there were tornadoes or whatever. Why? Because you get free candy from strangers. Helllooo! Anyways, Happy Halloween Eve, watch out for the Ghouls and Goblins, and Be Safe!! Please ya'll think about sending those letters/cards to Our Troops!! And the other night, I had my first cup of Wassle of the Season :) You just can't go wrong with apple cider, cinnamon, secret ingredients, and RUM!!! YUMMY RUMMY!!!}}

I don't know what the title meant.

Tonight I watched SOA (didn't see that one coming did you?). Sorry, but I'm not sorry. I can't help the fact that I'm mildly obsessed with this particular show. Sorry but I still haven't watched last Sundays episode of TWD, I know but I've just not been into it yet, yay for DVR, am I right? You know, I never thought the day would come to where I was some sort of "fangirl", my generation was Harry Potter and Twilight for Goodness sakes, which I love but am not obsessed with, but I guess I was wrong. I am definitely something along those lines. Oh, well. Last night was Season06, Episode08- Los Fantasmas. I don't know what that means, but there was a bunch of heavy stuff that "went down" on that episode. Let me just tell you. Holy crap!

SAMCRO's possible involvement in the school shooting was finally made public when the DA (Patterson) leaked the club's name to the local newspaper. Because of this the guys had to be very careful what they did, because they were being watched by everyone lawful and domestic. While Jax and the guys were talking to some of Nero's guys about the situation they were all in, a man ran down one of Nero's guys pretty gross too, and later when Nero's men went for revenge, Jax realizes that the guy's kid died in the school shooting. He stopped them from killing him, telling them that this was all cause of the press, asking what they would do if it was their kid, and they all left before the cops showed up. Jax apologized on the way out to the unconscious man. Uhh.... insert sob here, because that was some sad stuff people! I'm very emotional when it comes to certain things. Later when the cops come for the man for the hit&run, he stabbed himself in the neck, while clutching his son's picture, killing himself. When Patterson shows up she realizes what the newspaper story had done and she appears to show emotion. Sadness? Remorse? Guilt? With her, who really knows. She seems intent on getting Jax and the guys regardless of the consequences or who gets hurt/killed in the process.

While in jail, Nero tries to take the fall for the KG-9 that was used in the school shooting. He tells Patterson, "It wasn't Teller who supplied the gun, it was me, I'm responsible for the death of those children." However evidence clears him and implicates the late Toric, in the Diosa murder, and Eli helps Patterson see that his confession is bogus and she cuts him loose. Juice tells the guys that he delivered Connor back to The Kings, but informs Jax that they've decided to keep him stateside and that he's actually "a decent guy." But something seemed a little "fishy" about that one, if you know what I mean. Something's definitely going on with ole Juicy, he didn't even flinch when the car about hit him. He just stood there all stoic and stuff. I don't know what exactly, but something is definitely up with him. Mark my words on that one.  

Recovering from her "miscarriage" that she faked by the way, Tara reiterates to Jax how important it is that he cut ties with Gemma, a decision that he is on board with since he is furious/disgusted with his Mom for causing his wife/baby harm. Unser had plenty of questions/concerns/suspicions for Tara too. After they talked a bit he said to her, "I'm not upset about Gemma, doll, I'm upset about you. It breaks my heart that you had to become something so wrong to do what you thought was right." After she asked him if he was going to keep her secret, he says yes, but informs her that he can no longer help her or be apart of all of her schemes. He later attempted to come to Gemma's aid by explaining to Eli who has his suspicions about Gemma's guilt, that he should steer clear of any further SAMCRO drama, specifically when it came to the family variety. Unser gave Gemma a ride home from jail and during that ride he tried to reason with her, basically begging for her to let this latest Tara incident go. He tells her, "What drives you is bad history, it ain't real, and it ain't what's best for those boys.... you've got a lot of love in you Gemma, sweet, deep love, I've seen it, but it's so wrapped around secrets and hate, I don't know if you could find it anymore." Dude was just full of dang wisdom on this one. And just a side note, Chibs and Tig really stepped up in this one too, knowing what Jax was going through. They had his back and then some. Gotta love em!

Tara finally broke a little after a visit with her Attorney (Lowen), who for the first time questions Tara's actions. By the way, I really don't like Lowen. Turncoat. Tara went a little nutty in the bathroom after Lowen left and started talking to herself in the mirror. She was whispering to herself, "you stop it", but finally calmed herself down and was resolved by walking away. She went to the new "clubhouse" and her and Bobby have a bit of a heart-to-heart. She questions him about Jax's ability to really, truly make the club a legitimate business. Bobby pleads to her, "Don't give up on him, Jax is someone who needs to be with someone, always been that guy. I don't know if we're gonna make it.... but he ain't got a chance without you." She seemed a little affected by this.

Jax also finds himself on the receiving end of a harsh reality check, when a desperate Wendy showed up at his house looking for Tara. He immediately and angrily, rejects her, to which she responds sadly, "I'm tired of being hated." I have no sympathy for her, personally. She had caused and still is causing a lot of problems. Gemma confronted Wendy about the "ugly incident" at her apartment too. Instead of "taking her out", she offers her a deal. She tells her, "Help me prove what Tara has done.... I'll make sure Jax doesn't kill you." Wendy, who earlier in the episode purchased some heroin, seems receptive and asks Gemma to take the drugs with her, but Gemma leaves them and challenges her to prove that she can be a good mom. Wendy fails and gives in to the urge to shoot up. Go figure. This is like the third time that she's OD'd, hussie should definitely be dead this time. You know I'm right. It looked like she left a note though. Wonder what that says.

When Jax finally runs into Gemma at the hospital, for the first time since Tara "lost the baby", it was explosive and intense. She tries to explain to him that she was "set up", but he is resolute in his decision to eliminate her from his life. He tells her, "You're a liar and you're a sick twisted bitch, let this eat into your head mother, you're never gonna see my wife, and you will never see those kids again. Grandma is dead." It was sad and emotional to watch. Speaking of sad and emotional, let's talk the ending. Back at their house, putting their kids to bed, Jax and Tara share a truly gut-wrenching exchange in which the semi-estranged pair finally address the gaping distance between them:

Jax: "I'm lost here Tara. I'm trying to put it back together, but I don't know if I can."
Tara: "I know."
Jax: "I just feel so far away from you now. I know that's my fault. Please, just tell me how do I get back?"
Tara: "I'm not sure."
Jax: "Babe.... please let me back in."
**and insert Katie crying like a little bitch right here**

I told you that it was intense/emotional. Next week is going to be just as bad, if not worse. That damn Kurt Sutter gets me everytime! And as always, here's the promo for next weeks episode, Season06, Episode09- John 8:32.

They Made Their Decision...Again

There has been controversy and arguments for months now about who is going to play the title role of Christian Grey in E.L. James film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. Charlie Hunnam was going to be the signature character, but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. Personally, if I was him I would've dropped out to. It's like I told Momma when she asked me, that is the kind of movie that will either make or break someone's career. There will be no in between. Period. I have to say, I'm please with their choice. To me, It's All Good. Kudos!

Meet the new Christian Grey...His name is Jamie Dornan and he's an actor/model/musician. It was announced on Thursday, October 24. Apparently, he's multi-talented. Which considering the content of the book, could come in pretty handy in the long run. If you know what I mean. Catch my drift? I have to say, I find him reasonably attractive. Like...he's beautiful, he's Irish, and he's built fairly good. Gotta keep up the bod when you're a model I reckon. I'll probably still watch the movie after this decision, I have to admit it was iffy for a minute. I know he won't have his accent in the movie, or at least he shouldn't, but I have to admit...my favorite kind of accent is...an Irish one. If ya'll want to know more about him you can read/look at pictures here, here, or here. Oh, and here. All you crazy and/or obsessed ladies...You're Welcome. Considering some of the "Contenders" that they had I would say fans of the book lucked out. Who knew there was so many dweebs in the entertainment industry? I for one certainly didn't. And I don't like to talk bad about people. Honestly, I don't. To me beauty is more on the inside than out. However, when you have a character in a book that is described as being so panty-droppingly gorgeous that women cannot quit staring and you can't even stand it, then you kind of expect a certain kind of person to play that role. I mean more than just looks too. I'm talking about looks, walk, stance, body, personality, charisma...I'm talking the works.

Of course when something like this comes around then everyone has their own opinion on it. Back when I hadn't read the book, Danielle was just telling me about it and I still picked who I wanted to play the role. And I just knew what she had told me. In fact we both picked our Number One Contenders over a couple of beers. It was, fun. One of my original picks was...Charlie Hunnam. Yeah, I know that he dropped out, but the point is I was right to begin with. There was alot of flack after he was cast in the role and after he dropped out, the "voting" started again. The more well known people were immediately brought up. Of course, but the producers/writers wanted a "fresher face" so to speak. The "Contenders" that people wanted were...

Matt Bomer. Really ya'll? I'm not sure why everyone finds this man so attractive, but I personally don't get it. I mean he's not horrible or anything, but I just don't find him all that appealing. I'm probably the only woman to ever say that, but it's the truth. I didn't even find him attractive in Magic Mike. But then again I couldn't quit  looking at Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin. Yeah, I know you're about to Google that name. Alexander Skarsgard. Now I know that he's got a giant fanbase, I'm actually included in that, but I don't think that he's right for it. He's so widely popular with True Blood that it seems like it would take a little something away from it. I love him as Eric Northman, and when he played Charlie and Lincoln, he's such a badass, but I just don't see him in that role. Even if he says that he was born to play it. And I think he's too skinny for it. Just saying. Ian Somerhalder. Ok, don't even get me started on this dude. Why does everyone find him so attractive? What is it? Is it the whole plays a vampire thing? I know that women tend to find men that play vampires more attractive than the Average Joe, you can thank Brad Pitt circa 1994, I know for some strange reason I do, but come on. He's creepy as hell. And not in a good way, because I like creepy. Trust me. But this one is just too much, and he kind of reminds me of a Python...and not in a good way. Henry Cavill. This one I'll give you. He's a pretty guy. Like really pretty. Seriously. I never really thought much about this dude, I'm not a Superman fan-don't stone me, but then I started watching The Tudors. After a few episodes I have no lie to tell, I was a fan. I just hadn't been giving that guy enough credit. I'll admit, after Charlie Hunnam dropped out he was my second choice. (Since I knew that they weren't going to be hiring Sam Worthington).

Theo James. No. Just no. This dude is completely wrong. What were ya'll thinking? He's not ugly or anything, that's not what I'm saying. I'm saying that he's a mix between Mark Consuelos and Olivier Martinez. Good in theory, but not for this particular character. I don't think that he's repulsive, but I'm definitely not attracted to him. At all. Scott Eastwood. Out of all of these (less known) guys I have to say that he comes the closest. He's got that strong jaw, that muscular, but not overly done bod, and those blue/grey eyes that make you want to keep staring at him, even if you look insanely creepy. What I'm trying to say is, dude's pretty! Like, seriously pretty. He's got that good looking, manly-man look just like his daddy. I don't know if he could take on the complex character because I've never actually seen him in anything but Flags of Our Fathers, and that was years ago so I don't remember it all that well. Apparently he was in Texas Chainsaw 3D too, but I can't remember that movie all that well either, but if we're going on looks and stance, guy's good to go. He's a damn Eastwood after all. Billy Magnussen. What the hell? No. Dude looks like a Serial Killer Clown without the make-up. Why? Why would people think that this was a good idea? An episode of Criminal Minds or Law and Order: SVU, yes. FSOG, no. He might be a nice guy, I don't know, but he kind of looks like a tool to me. You know one of those guys that thinks that they're beautiful and God's gift to women, when really all you wanna do when you look at them is throw up in your mouth a little bit. Narcissist table for one. It's ok honey, choke that vom back down.

Luke Bracey. He looks like that guy that played a frat guy in all of those late 90s/early 00s Lifetime movies that try and teach girls about the dangers of dating. Know what I mean? You know, that one guy that thinks he's a ladies man, but really is just going around asking girls if they want a drink...so he can Roofie them! Then he sneaks around and lurks in the darkness so he can eventually strangle you and run away, resulting in a trial where he tries to get out of it. Do ya'll see where I'm going with this? Christian Cooke. You guys are kidding me right? No, seriously this must be a joke. He looks more scared than I would running into Freddy Kreuger in a dark alley. Just so you know, that's damn scared. He's adorable in that you want him to be your lab partner and watch Forrest Gump with you kind of way, but never think about dating. Maybe a couple years later you think-why not? But mostly he's just your "Bestie". You're pretty sure that he's you GBF, and you're perfectly fine with that. Not for this particular role. Francois Arnaud. Does anyone else see a little John Mayer in this guy? Or is that just me? He seems more like he should be crooning on the stage in a College Coffee House, reading awful poetry out loud, and writing songs about lost love while sipping a latte. I'm just saying what we're all thinking and you know it. All he needs is a beanie hat at a hacky sack and he'd be the coolest guy on the block. Women would find him attractive, but only young girls that are into the artist/unemployed/misunderstood type. Not exactly what they were looking for when they were trying to cast this movie.

Sweet and Vaded. (And Venus being a badass).

Oh, and by the way, read this article/interview of Walter Goggins who happens to be guest starring as the lovely Venus Van Damme on SOA. Don't judge. Him and his character are amazing!! Warning! Spoiler Alert!!

What went down? Well, for starters, the guys set up their new clubhouse in, get this, the back of an ice cream shop. It's actually pretty cute and hopefully low key enough so there won't be any trouble. Of course, there will be, but we can hope. The table survived and the first order of business was voting in the three new members and.... Ratboy! You know, the only surviving Prospect. Anyways.... they let Connor (the Irishman) and his buddy go in good faith of the Irish deal. Connor thanked Chibs, to which Chibs replied, "Don't thank me, I want you dead. Thank him, he's the reason you're alive." and pointed to Jax. Jax sent a message to the Irish through them, for peace to let them know that they would run the guns through Clay and that the deal with Damon Pope's old crew still stands. The problem is Damon Pope's crew is African American and the Irish are incredibly racist. Like, asshole racist. See the dilemma? Nero told Gemma that she had to ask Jax to help Venus get her "nephew" back away from her mother-April. He was real upset about it. After they guys talked to Venus about it and she explained the situation and how her mother was, they all agreed to help.

A fight broke out at the house when they went to get him, resulting in a car chase, and Venus going "Vincent", shooting through the back glass of Jax's SUV at her mother's boyfriend and his buddy. They ran dudes plate and found their "studio." April had drugged the boy (that we learn is really Venus's son, not nephew) and the guys discovered between the studio, Venus's story, and April's talking that they were running a kiddie porn business. They sent the two guys away, but April just stayed and stood there berating Venus and finally hit one too many buttons on Jax causing him to shoot her in the head. I wish I could say it was a sad loss, but it wasn't. I didn't like her even a little bit and she was a horrible person.

Tig took Venus to send the boy to live with some of her friends in Seattle so he would be safe. Did I mention that- I love Venus! Moving on.... that DA lady is still being a giant pain in the ass. She just wants an arrest, and she don't care if they are innocent or guilty. Hussie. Tara faked Gemma attacking her and faked a miscarriage just like I said she would. Gemma smacked her across the face, Tara smacked her back, then punched her in the gut. Gemma told her she was lucky she was pregnant, then Tara threw herself stomach first into the corner of the table, busting a bag of blood that she had drawn earlier and had hidden in her dress, making it look like she had miscarried. They arrested and booked Gemma while Unser, Wendy, and The Lawyer looked on in horror/sadness knowing what she had just done. Tara played Jax to the hilt. She cried for him, and when he got there she was crying and told him that Gemma had kicked her in the stomach and made her lose their baby girl. She then made him promise that Gemma would never be around their kids again, and Jax signed a restraining order agreeing to all of it, thinking that Gemma caused the miscarriage. By the way.... she was never pregnant to begin with, but she's a tricky hussie. Even though I hate what she did and think it's disgusting, I do have to say.... well played Tara, well played.... that shit is so going to come back and bite you.

It's getting more and more intense every episode, but I am glad that they brought a little humor back into it. Like the interaction between Tig and Venus. Like, when she went nuts and shot out the window and stuff he looked at her and was all, "What the hell baby?" And when he seen her through the window when they all pulled up. Basically, all of their interactions. Classic!! All I can say about this show is.... kudos KS.

  
As always here's the preview for next weeks episode- Season06, Episode08, Los Fantasms.

Monday Morning...Again

Good day to all of you people that are reading! Here it is. Another Monday morning. Another morning of getting up early to get ready for school...or if you're unfortunately an adult...Work. Yep. Welcome to reality. It sucks, and it's for the rest of your life. Enjoy :) I had another appointment at the Dermatologist this morning. My appointment was at 7:15 am, but I got there early and was done and out of there by 7:05 am. Go Team! What did I get out of going to see Dr. Dude this morning? Well, I'm three moles short and have another appointment November 18@ 7:15 am (again). Personally, I think that it's all a Government Conspiracy (you know going to the Doctor and Dermatologist), but it all seems to be working out for the better so who am I to judge? I didn't do a whole lot of interesting things this past weekend per say, but I thought that it was fairly nice. It was pretty chilly outside, so I was ok with the whole staying in the house cuddled up watching tv, reading books thing. #nerdalert Not to mention with the evil troll that seems to be living in my belly/womb starting Saturday I wanted to keep wearing the sweats and fuzzy socks. #mothernaturecamecallingandIhateher Here's what I took from the weekend.

  • I would have changed my name by now, if I wasn't so used to signing it. I know me. I hate my last name with a passion, it's stupid/ridiculous and sounds completely made up. Seriously, even Dani says that it sounds like something they would give me in The Witness Protection Program. P.S. If I was in Witness Protection there is no way that I would take my last name. Nope, Sorry, Just ain't going down like that. I've thought about changing it for awhile now, a few years actually, but I'm so used to signing it that if I changed it I know that I would keep accidentally signing my original. It sucks, but it's just the truth.
  • Mel Gibson and Tommy Flanagan are just bad dudes! Like seriously awesome/bad dudes. If you're wondering...I watched Braveheart and I forgot how cool it actually was. I know all about Tommy Flanagan because I watch him every week as Chibs, but I forgot how much I loved Mel Gibson. He really is awesome. And I say about him the same thing I say about Tom Cruise- I don't care how crazy they are, I like their acting. They're pretty great.
  • Weeds is officially on my list of favorite tv shows ever. I started watching it on NetFlix yesterday morning/afternoon and I couldn't quit laughing! I'm on the fourth episode of the second season and it's hilarious! That poor woman can't catch a break, and I know she's a drug dealer, but I really want things to work out for her. Is that wrong? It's kind of like how I was all #TeamJesse on BrBa. My favorite character has got to be Megan. She plays Silas'(the oldest son) deaf girlfriend. Those two are hilarious together! Of course since she's my favorite she probably won't be on there long. Just how it goes. Well, her and Andy that is, because I mean- How do you not love Andy? He is awesome! Definitely tied for my favorite character!
  • I watched a few movies too. I seen This Is The End, The Lords Of Salem, and Death Race 3: Inferno. Here's what I got from those. A) I'm still convinced that James Franco is a total douchebag. Like seriously- a douchebag, but I would still hang out with him. For some reason I want to listen to his pretentious ass tell me about art and try to explain the universe to me. Don't ask me why, but I would. B) Rob Zombie is literally still as weird if not weirder than he was a decade ago. He has been freaking me out and making me go all- What? for years now. Years. And guess what? He still is. That movie was completely screwed up and awesome. I will straight up watch anything that has to do with The Salem Witch Trials, and that includes movies that Rob Zombie makes. After all Nothing says Halloween like Zombie :) C) I love the second and third Death Race movies more than the first. There's just no way around it. Don't get me wrong I like Jason Statham, but I like Luke Goss Future Father of my Imaginary Children more. I'll probably get shot for that statement, but it's true, I do. Plus, I would love to look like Tanit Phoenix. And have a cool name like Tanit Phoenix. Just saying. It's a great movie.
  • Black&White Kettlecorn is amazing!! If you have the opportunity to try it...Eat the whole damn bag!!
  • I got my "BlackBook" out of storage a couple of weeks ago and have managed to look through it all and feel a touch Nostalgic. I should probably take a couple photos out of it to put on here. I have everything in that book. Photos, Cards, Letters, Notes, Poems, Quotes, just a little bit of everything. Trust me. Photo's to come soon.
Off of the subject, I have come to realize that when the heater kicks on at work that it sounds like the Evil Furnace from Home Alone. I'm just saying. Oh, and I know I wasn't supposed to but I kind of named one of Sadie's kittens. I like the chubby one. I don't even like cats, but you can only take care of something for so long before you become emotionally invested. Remind me to tell you about my dead Cactus sometime. Yes, I killed a Cactus. I named it- Sal. Now, I'm pretty sure that it's a girl cat, but it's fat and to me Sal sounds like a name that a Mobster would have via Sopranos so I named her Sal, because she's a "fat cat". Get it?

The Walking Dead: Season04, Epsiode 01.

So.... I finally did watch the Season04 premiere of The Walking Dead last night. Like I said, thanks to the Genius who invented DVR. It was probably someone like me who really got into tv and reading. Hey, gotta do something and I don't judge other people for what they like to do so who cares? Right? Anyways...I watched Season04, Episode01- 30 Days Without an Accident last night. Can I just say one thing? Daryl Dixon!! I'm so happy to have him back! That is all.

It was a good episode, it had alot more gross in it than what it usually has though. Like a whole lot more. I notice as the series goes on that they're getting more graphic/gory with the props and/or "walkers". Dani and I had a talk yesterday about what to call them, because everyone has a different name for them- Walkers, Zombies, Infected, Kardashians, you know the usual. I decided to call them Walkers, because if Daryl Dixon says it, than it must be true. He is after all the only time Hello Kitty is acceptable.

Dani, or anybody else that has yet to watch the Season04 Premiere or isn't yet caught up...Stop Reading Now! I'm nice so I'm putting it out there...Spoiler Alert!!

Things I Loved:
  • Daryl and Carol still have their "love" thing going on. That's right, you go boy/girl! I'm not sure what it is about Carol, but I really like her. I think her and Daryl have a great friendship/relationship/understanding of each other. Plus Daryl is the shit.
  • Kyle Gallner joined the cast as a refugee named Zach, that was living at the prison with them and "dating" Beth. Everyone that knows me knows I love creepy/scary movies, and this boy is helping reinvent them. Love him.
  • Herschel got an artificial leg! I'm not exactly sure where it came from, or who they stole it off of, but I'm so glad he got it. I was worried about his ole ass hobbling around. That's just dangerous.
  • Michonne, Daryl, and Glenn taking more folks out on a run.
  • Carol teaching the kids knife fighting during "story time".
  • Weird girl that Rick found dying. (I'll explain in a minute).
  • Zach guessing what Daryl did before the "outbreak"Z-Homicide Cop? M-insert laughter here. D-What's so funny? M-Nothing, makes perfect sense. D-He's right. Z- Really? They just stare and laugh at him. Trust me it's funnier when you see it.
  • Michonne is still looking for The Governor. I may be thankful to him that he killed off Andrea, but I still don't like him.
  • Walker falling through the roof, and all the gross going on. Halloween Costume Ideas much? 
Things That Made Me WTH:
  • Weird girl that Rick found trying to kill him, so her Walker husband could each him for lunch because she was crazier than hell. 
  •  Zach getting ate/killed by a Walker after helping Daryl lift a shelf off of another guy to save his life when the Walkers came crashing through the ceiling. It was too soon. I think he would've been great on this show, ya'll killed him off too soon. Not fair!
  • Carl- You're still a pain in the ass! Hush!
  • Glenn and Maggie being all weird. Yeah, you're in love and struggling through an apocalypse. We get it. Quit being so whiny about it- Glenn.
  • Rick finding a fully loaded gun and then throwing it away. Uhh...Hello! Everything/One besides like twelve people on the planet are trying to eat you like you're bread pudding and it's Christmas. Keep the gun!
  • Beth I know that Daryl told you that your boyfriend got his face ate off, and you're trying to be all tough, but seriously show a little emotion. He was a nice guy. We don't need you being a female Carl! And quit hugging Daryl, that's just weird and uncomfortable....for everyone.
  • I knew that dang kid was going to turn into a Walker, because he was secretly infected. How I don't know, but I knew it. Did no one hear him dying though? He was coughing pretty loud. Wake up people!

Beth was just weird when it came to Daryl telling her about Zach. She says she doesn't cry anymore and she hugged on Daryl. I've never seen someone trying to be nice look so uncomfortable. And seriously, boy who was sick and became a Walker at the end, did no one hear him coughing? Seriously? He wasn't exactly being quiet, and if there's a chance that someone is going to eat my face (or any other part of my flesh for that matter) I'm gonna be a little more on my toes. I mean come on. I think this is going to be a good season, but what can I say- I'm partial. :)

When I was watching it last night (eating my homemade chicken and noodles-delicious!) I came to a conclusion that I think that most people who watch the show would agree with. If something like this ever did happen- Don't judge, with the drugs people make/smoke now, chemical warfare, and governmental conspiracies, it's not that far fetched that it would get out of hand- Norman Reedus is screwed. Why? Because he plays Daryl Dixon. A badass with a crossbow, that rides a motorcycle and isn't scared of anything. People think he's awesome yes me included so if it happens, people are going to look at him. You know the people who can't separate reality from fiction? I get really into whatever I watch or read, but some people get crazy. They're going to look at him to save their lives, and he's gonna be all- Hell, I don't know, let's smoke and drink before we die. Good plan Norman, good plan.

Salvage. (Happy's got mad jokes this week).

As most of you know, my favorite show is SOA.... no matter what, I always stay up and make time for SOA. I think I may be a bit addicted. Do they have places for people like me with this problem? I don't even know what you'd classify it under. Extreme Delusional Mindset? Sounds good and about right to me. Oh, the things that went down on Tuesday's episode (Salvage) of SOA!! First I would like to say that it was my favorite episode this season! Actually, it was probably my favorite episode in the last few seasons, and that's saying a lot, because there's none that I don't like. This one though, was serious, funny, and had so much going on. You really got to see The Brotherhood come together and it was great! Jax really is a natural leader, he's just having some difficulties. The whole thing was awesome, from beginning to end. Watching Jax and Chibs walk around the wreckage of the clubhouse and Chibs handing the gavel to Jax that conveniently survived was sad. Juice going all "Cowboy" was funny/crazy. They all had their hilarious moments! Even Gemma. I laughed so hard! Then Jax's speech? Yeah, fantastic. Kurt Sutter = mad genius!!

Favorite parts:
  • When the guys found the chop shop and Jax made them apologize to his guys, and when one smarted off he was all smug/loveable when he hit him and asked "You think I'm kiddin'?"
  • Happy ringing that damn bell over and over again.
  • Bobby coming back, and all the moments between him and Jax.
  • Tig: "Yeah, I've seen Smokey and the Bandit a million times.... I love that movie!"
  • Gemma getting "arrested" so she could talk to Nero.
  • Jax's speech and the guys response.
  • Juice going all "Cowboy."
  • VENUS RETURNS!!
  • Tara telling the DA to piss off.
  • Jax being sweet to Tara, even though she doesn't really deserve it.  
There was just so much greatness packed into one episode. It reminded me of how the show really started out. Kurt was right, that episode took it back to it's "roots" and went "old school." I don't know if that's the way it will continue to go, but that would be great! No argument from this girl right here!

Of course, I'm still nervous about everything that's going to happen. I know it's just a tv show, not real life, but I can't help it. Just like when I read I get invested in the characters. Kurt Sutter constantly keeps me on the edge of my seat, he never disappoints or fails to have that "shock value." How it could all end is anyone's guess. And as always, the Promo for next week's episode- Season06, Epidose07- Sweet and Vaded.

I'm A Horrible Person

...And I'm Ok With That. I've admitted it and now I can go on peacefully, not trying to hide it. If you happen to be wondering what I mean by this, let me explain. No, I don't go around picking on people, or kicking puppies, or taking kids lollipops, actually I think I may be a good, if not good than at least decent, person when it comes to most things. Most things that is...Except the scariest thing on this entire planet. Snakes? Spiders? Sharks? Deep Sea Hatchetfish? Scorpions? Those Creepy Creatures that are a mixture of Spiders-Scorpions-and Hornets that Nightmares are made out of? No, No, No, No,No, and No. I'm talking about something far more Terrifying than any of those things. I'm talking about....BABIES!

 

Now, I know what you're thinking- "Katie, What's wrong with you? Babies are beautiful and adorable and loveable. You should be ashamed!" And yes, I honestly should be ashamed...but I'm not! I'm not because to be perfectly honest Babies scare the living daylights out of me! They really do. Like I tend to hyperventilate and cry if left alone with one for too long. Can you imagine how my first babysitting job when I was 12 went when I babysat my teacher's three boys (ages 4, 2, & 6 months)? It was a very stressful time. She actually wanted me to babysit. It was shocking. She asked me if I would babysit them, because I was one of her favorite student's, she trusted me, and she wanted to do some Christmas Shopping. I figured- "No problem, get in good with the teach, make a little extra Christmas cash, it can't be that bad, it's only for a couple of hours".

Holy shit! Those were the longest eighteen hours of my entire existence! Yes! You heard me right! Eighteen hours!! I was tricked!! She asked if I would come over real early so her and her mother-in-law could head out and miss all of the traffic. We lived at the corner of "BFE" and "You Got A Perty Mouth" so if you wanted to go somewhere that wasn't our local grocery store, you had to drive a country mile. It was about three hours before you got to a mall. I didn't think nothing about it. I got there about 3:45 a.m. like she requested, and she assured me that the boys would sleep until somewhere between 9-10 (except the baby of course).

I was ok with this, because after they woke up I would make them breakfast and we would hang out and watch cartoons for a couple hours, then Teach would be home. I was WRONG! She no sooner stepped out of he house and took off, before the demons rose up. I mean that as literal and blunt as possible!! From Four a.m. until Ten p.m. I was in Purgatory. I knew this because I had read Dante's Inferno and imagined it being something like that. Those kids did everything that they shouldn't have, including but not limited to taking every single peppermint candycane off of the Christmas Tree, licking them, and then sticking them in the babies hair. Did I mention the baby had white/blonde hair? No? Well, he did. If you're wondering where I was when this was all "going down" I was peeing.

Hey! I held out for nine hours, then my bladder got the best of me. It took me forever to wash the peppermint color out. I still don't know if I got it all. Did I mention that the baby also had Colic, Diaper Rash, and Upper Respiratory Infection? No? Funny, because none of that was mentioned to me until after the fact either. I contemplated crying. I've never felt so helpless. I took care of people for a living (I worked at the nursing home for five years as a cna, and was good at it and enjoyed caring for people), but babies/children are much different than adults. Even helpless/sick adults. Trust me. Around hour thirteen, I'm not really sure how, but the oldest got locked in the bathroom. I may have accidentally locked the door on my out, I'm not sure...and any further questions you have can be referred to my lawyer...


I was out of there as quickly as possible when Teach got home. I never babysat those kids again. I did watch the baby by himself at a school pep rally once after that. I'm still half convinced that was a ploy between my mother and teacher to scare me into not having underage sex. PS...If that was their masterful plan, they succeeded.

I bring all of this up because I've been thinking about it lately. No, I don't have "Baby Fever", calm down, I started thinking about it because I got a message on FB Monday telling me that my (ex)best friend had her baby. It's her second one, but together her and her boyfriend have four (ages 5, 4, 2, and Newborn). The three oldest are boys and the newest a baby girl. Let's just say a visit to their house is...Educational? Scary? Something, I'm not sure what. Anyways...Since we're not exactly close anymore don't ask I was surprised to get a message about it. We have had been friends since third grade, and she always said that she wanted to name one of her daughters after me when she had them.

Apparently she remembered that, but forgot the fact that we haven't talked in over 6 months. The little girls name is Katelyn. Pretty dang close. She was 10 lbs, 5 ounces, 21.5 inches long. Here's the horrible part, when I seen the baby picture the only thing I could think was- "OMG! That baby is huge! That came out of where?! Noo!!" Then I seen a picture of Mom and baby together and the only thing I could think was- "Girl, you'll never be the same again. You look like hell". I know that childbirth is a rough thing to go through (by the things I've been told, not by personal experience), but I couldn't help my mind. I even said it out loud. I really should work on my not having a filter. I don't even pretend to know what pregnant women/mother's go through, because I honestly have no clue, but seeing those pictures, knowing the facts, and hearing that she was in labor from early morning until night...even though we don't see eye to eye anymore...I had pity for her.

Pity for the time consuming pain that is. I know that childbirth is supposed to be a magical, beautiful, natural thing, but in me it just insets fear. Like, FEAR. Everytime I think about it I revert back to fifth grade when that scary guy came in to give us "the talk" and teach us "sex education". The only thing I took from that is now the mental image of trying to push a watermelon through a lemon. Yeah, he was that graphic. It didn't help either, most of the people I grew up with have kids and started when we were Freshmen. Thanks for nothing dude.

Yes, I've talked to people about this, and I don't hate kids by any means. I really don't, I mean I'm no Winifred Sanderson, but I am scared of babies/small children. I'm scared of the thought of pushing one of them out, and that I'll hurt them. They're so tiny! That and some babies/kids look like they're peering into your soul and evil. Hey, I've seen Children of the Corn and The Omen! Besides...Babies Have A Self-Destruct Button On Their Heads! If That's Not Scary...What Is??!

It's Teller Tuesday, bitches.

I had the weirdest dream last night. I woke up I know a good three times, but every time I fell back asleep the same dream would start up again. It was very strange. So does that mean that I had three weird dreams or just one since it continued? I'm really not sure. Apparently in this dream I was some form of entertainer, but the kind that hides form people and sings Santeria and Season of Love. Yeah, I don't get it either. I have got to quit letting my imagination get away from me, it's running a muck! If I wasn't so used to it by now, I would be worried. However, I've been weird my whole life so it doesn't even seem to phase me anymore. Also I would just like to say that I started reading The Trilogy again last night, and leave y'all with this....

What Costume To Choose?

{{Before I begin this post I would just like to start off by saying- People who broke into my car Saturday night, scraped the window putting a hanger or whatever down it to get it unlocked, broke my glove-box, and stole the middle part that change goes in, but left everything else (an utter mess) I only have one thing to say to you. HaHa!! Jokes on you because I'm poor! I mean Come On! Seriously?! My car is four different colors and held together with zip-ties and duct tape. What did you think you were going to find in there? The Queen's Jewels? Jerks.}}

Moving On...Dani and I were discussing last Thursday what to be for Halloween. We talked about dressing up for work and how much fun we thought that it would be. We wanted Aunt Susi to do it with us, but she's off on Thursdays and Fridays now, and since Halloween is on a Thursday this year...you know the rest. It would've been fun though. Dani and I came up with a bunch of ideas on what to be (none better than her as Taylor Swift with a broken guitar and tire tracks going up her), but still haven't decided. There's just so many choices. Even though we want to be workplace and kid friendly (ain't nobody trying to see anybody's business...dang), there are just so many possibilities.

The Classics:
(Audrey Hepburn, Alice in Wonderland, Minnie Mouse, 
Dorothy, Red Riding Hood, and A Gangster)

The Random Ones:
(Rockford Peach, Sailor Girl, A Doll, Captain America, and The Morton Salt Girl)

The Ones That Make People Ask:
(Catherine Earnshaw, Elizabeth Bennett, Mrs. Lovett, and Rose Dewitt Bukater)

The Tacky Ones:
(Forrest Gump and Lt. Dan, Bonnie Parker After She Was "Captured", and A Dead Prom Queen)

I like all of these, but I've always wanted to dress up like Bonnie Parker (not so much with the bullet wounds, I mean before). For some reason though whenever I find something that I like I think to myself- "Yeah, that would just be better with some zombie make-up". You can thank Norman Reedus a.k.a. Daryl Dixon and the rest of the cast of The Walking Dead for that one. {By the way, the new season of TWD started last night, I didn't watch it, but I have it recorded. Gotta love DVR.} It is true though think about it. Zombie Bonnie. Zombie Alice in Wonderland. Zombie Old Timey Lady. It's just the fact of the matter. Whatever I decide on, I think they may have to be the Zombie version. Basically, because I really want to wear grey make-up and smear bright red lipstick across my face, while having wild grimy hair. I could do something really cool/creative with some make-up or something (Chestshire Cat), but I'm on limited time here folks...Thanks Pinterest. And honestly the only reason I kind of want to be Alice is so that I can wear a bow in my hair and Dani will have to see it all day. Just so you know, she hates bows and threatens to cut all of my hair off if I wear one. The same with bangs. (Exception-Hallow-freakin-Ween). I was going to be An Escaped Insane Asylum Patient, and Dani Nurse Ratchet, but I think we decided against that one. Who knows. I'll think of something. If worse comes to worse I can always revert back to the 90. Just saying.

Another fine Irishman brought down by the bottle.

As y'all know, every Tuesday night, I stay up very late just so I can watch my favorite tv show- SOA. It's a rule of mine, and last night was no exception to that rule. Just so everyone is aware, I'm really loving these 90 minute episodes. Kurt Sutter, you are the shit man! Last night's episode was without a doubt.... VERY INTENSE!! It was so intense and so many things happened that I implored the help of Megan Masters to help me summarize it. Season06, Episode05- The Mad King.


Before we get into the "heavy" I would just like to say not only were there intense/nerve-racking parts in it, there were also a couple really funny scenes. My favorite being between Jax and Chibs. In the scene they were chasing a few Irish guys through a warehouse, and to get one of them Jax drives a truck through the wall, wrecking into cases of beer, and hitting the man they're after. When he got out of the truck, the conversation between them was priceless. Chibs: "JESUS.... another fine Irishman brought down by the bottle." Tig: "Nice driving." Jax: "Thanks." Insert laughter here. 

With the clubhouse on lock down after last week’s murderous events, the guys, with retaliation in mind, head out to find Galen. Various beat-downs, car chases and shoot-outs later, Jax & Co. locate an Irish member who leads them via phone call to the Kings’ higher ups. The men listen as Jax suggests they team up with Damon Pope’s old associate August Marks, no matter that the Kings are notoriously and viciously racist. Unbeknownst to Jax, Galen is in on the conference call and immediately nixes the idea. Divulging his plans from the Season 5 finale in which Clay forms his own crew and takes over the gun run for the Kings from Belfast, the increasingly nefarious foe explains that as soon as they’ve broken Clay out of prison, “Our history with the Sons of Anarchy has come to an end. Jax gets what he wants: out of guns… and ties severed.”  The Kings later connect with Jax and tell him to gather “a full table” at the clubhouse for a vote; they’ll call him back at 8 o’clock with their decision. “Maybe their greed is trumping their racism,” he says naively to a cautious Chibs, after Chibs confronted him about the situation and you got to see the bond/ brotherhood/ love that we all especially me love/ miss between those two.


Tyne Patterson is desperate to “find a bad guy” to take the fall for that school shooting, and reveals to Eli that she intends to use Tara to do so. Tara’s plans to double-cross Gemma hit a snag when Wendy begins to fall for the queen’s charms. “This push and pull with Tara, I hate it,” a seemingly genuine Gemma tells her. “I loved you, Wendy. A lot. You were a good fit for Jax.” After confessing her reluctance to Tara, Jax’s not-so-doting wife refers to Abel as Wendy’s son and explains, “I can’t do this without you.” Wendy once again comes around, but only if she can spend time with Abel. Tara agrees. Clay arranges a conjugal visit with Gemma, simply as a means of filling her in on the Kings’ plans for Jax and the club. Unfortunately, a pair of corrupt cops insist that Gemma sleep with her estranged ex while they watch, “A conjugal is a conjugal, Morrow,” one hisses. After some hesitance and few nasty punches at the hands of the guards, Clay whispers, “I’m so sorry,” and the couple complies. Gemma later confesses the emotional incident to Nero, who, visibly shaken, says he’s “trying” to be OK with it.


Unser approaches Tara about her meeting with Wendy which he previously interrupted. “Not sure what was going on, but I got the impression it’s very hush-hush. Pretty obvious you didn’t want the queen to be privy… Exit strategy? Do you need my help?” Not sure how to respond, Tara asks, “If I said yes…?” He replies, “Then I’d say I’m gonna need to know all the facts… It’s an offer. Think it over.”

Mere minutes before heading to “church” Jax notices a green, Irish-themed pen on the clubhouse bar. He immediately realizes that the Kings set them up and planned to kill the club, and everyone in its proximity via a just-delivered keg rigged with an explosive. The bike shop is quickly vacated, with Tara and Thomas making it out, and Jax and Chibs just barely escaping with a sleeping Abel before the entire place goes up in flames. Chibs refused to leave without Jax, yelling the whole time, “Jackie! Jackie Boy!! Come On!” It was amazing and very intense!


The final shot: Everyone, including Eli, who’s just arrived to arrest Nero for the murder of that Diosa gal, stares on in horror. And here's the sneak preview at next weeks episode Season06, Episode06- Salvage.

Deadfall and The Ledge

It's no big secret that I'm a Charlie Hunnam fan. Yes, even before he got cast in FSOG, I was a fan. I talk about my favorite tv show-SOA on here all the time, and he just happens to be the star of the show-Jax Teller. However, I was a fan of his ever since I watched him he play that creepy role in Abandon that probably wasn't appropriate for me to watch since I was twelve, now that I think about it. Then he solidified my place in his "fandom" the following year when he played Bosie in Cold Mountain. He wasn't exactly the prettiest in that movie, so to me that just proved how great of an actor he was. People weren't looking at him as a "pretty guy" but instead wanted to see what he could do. He didn't disappoint. He was in a few tv shows, plays, and movies before then, but those are the first ones I just so happened to see. I'm saying all of this because I watched a couple of his movies that I hadn't seen. Even though my favorite one will probably forever remain 3,2,1....Frankie Go Boom, because it's just as hilarious as it gets, I have yet to see one of his movies that I don't like.    
I watched his movie DeadFall Saturday evening. I actually enjoyed it. I've been waiting for it to become available for awhile. It wasn't in the RedBox, so I had to wait. Not much you can do, especially when you don't go to video stores.I was going to talk about it sooner, but I figured I'd just wait a couple of days and kill two birds with one stone :)


As soon as this movie started I was all-WTH? It was crazy just to start with. Then as it went on and on it got crazier and crazier. I was hollerin' at the screen and pulling the blanket up over my face on this one. It had me a nervous wreck. Eric Bana is crazier than hell, Olivia Wilde is still as gorgeous as ever damn her, and Charlie is such a badass. I mean like a real badass. You go boy! It's a little all over the place, but if you watch it and keep up it's totally worth it. All of the actors really show some of what they can do in this one. I'm sure it's not easy playing a psychopath, or a recently released convict, or even whatever the hell Olivia Wilde was playing, I'm still not sure about that one, but they all did it very well. Besides it also has Kris Kristofferson and Sissy Spacek as Charlie's parents, and I mean how can you go wrong with those two?   

Tonight I watched his movie The Ledge. I've been wanting to see it for awhile now, but haven't gotten the chance. It was released in 2011, but I couldn't find it anywhere. Finally, I found it. It was on NetFlix. In fact a couple of his movies are, even though the only tv show of his on there is SOA. I guess the fact that he got cast as Christian Grey in the film adaptation of FSOG has made him a little more in demand. I'm glad that I loved him before he snagged that role.


I liked this one even better than Deadfall. I don't know why I would compare the two since they're completely different, but you say tomato I say goldenblach. This one starts with Charlie standing on a ledge contemplating jumping, with Terrence Howard (who has alot of his own issues) trying to talk him down. Asking why he's doing all of this, Charlie starts to tell his story going back and forth between the past and present. While he's telling all of this, Terrence and him become kind of "bonded" and he starts telling Charlie what's happening with him. By the way their names in real life are Charlie and Terrence, not in the movie. Just saying. Of course Liv Tyler is the love interest because she just seems to be utterly perfect in every role, and I love the roommate in it. Charlie is amazing in this one, he really shows some of his emotional range. It's great. I won't tell you what all happens, but let me just say when you watch it-Have tissues on hand. It's a sad one!
