So instead I thought, because I had shared some kind of deep stuff and sappy-emotional stuff lately, I would share something lighter.
50 Shades of bored:
I don't understand the fascination with this book series at all. I tried to read the first book and got maybe halfway through before I
Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Episode:
I have to admit that I loved almost every minute of the show. I came in about 45 minutes late and I really wish we had taped it. I enjoyed the look back and the memories so very much. I was a little confused about why Chris Rock spent more time talking about Eddie Murphy then Eddie Murphy spent talking and I laughed at myself when I literally sighed in relief that Miley Cyrus had cloths on but I felt so overwhelmed by Paul Simon's performance and I was just glad Paul McCartney is still around. I totally get that Kanye West has made his career pushing the box but could he not just turn it off for one night? This wasn't suppose to be a night about how weird Kanye is and yet the main drawback to the whole show was Kanye's performance. Actually, the main drawback was that Kanye was invited to perform at all. Aside from that it was amazing seeing all the stars from the past and I absolutely had to hold back tears when I watched the tribute piece to those SNL has lost over the years. So much talent has come off that stage. So many laughs. Is there anyone alive who hasn't been touched by SNL?
I read the book first and watched the movie Friday night. I thought the performances were good but considering I knew exactly how screwed up these characters were to begin with I found myself putting up barriers as I watched the movie. I did not want to get reinvested in these people because I didn't like them the first time. I did think Ben Affleck made Nick Dunne a lot more likable in the movie, which says a lot about the fact that leaving out the first person point of view helped redeem Nick a lot. There is still nothing about Amy Dunne to like. It is a strange thing to hate the characters, not really like the book and although I did kind of enjoy the movie in the end, I feel like it is a good read and the movie was worth the time invested. I can't explain it but I guess it becomes about being fascinated with the train wreck and not being able to stop looking combined with knowing that inside we are all just a little bit less mentally sound than we appear to be. Some of us, like Amy, do a really good job of hiding just how disturbed we are. Most of us, just feel on the edge at times and walk slowly away and coming back to normal.
I have to admit, I haven't caught up since it came back 2 weeks ago. I didn't realize it was back and when I planned last night as my catch up night, I ended up watching SNL instead so, please nobody spoil it for me.
I know this is stupid. I know this show has been out for 15 years. I know, I know, I know, but I never watched it until......Joe. Now I can't get enough of the stupidity of it. Seriously, I think I fall asleep to South Park almost every night. I laugh at some of it. I cringe at a lot of it. I roll my eyes at most of it but every once in a blue moon there is a little piece of gold hidden in one of those stupid cartoons that just makes it worth it. The characters just make me laugh and that's okay M'kay?
I wake up to CNN because life isn't life if you don't know what ISIS is doing and that is just sad. I wish I could just forget them. Don't we all?
What I am looking forward to:
Game of Thrones:
