Lois Lane: Superman is my baby daddy!

If the plot didn’t make it terribly obvious that Lois’ son was Superman’s, the cinematography did our work for us well before the piano scene. I finally watched Superman Returns tonight. I had no idea Parker Posey was in it...

No more evening supermarket trips

People in Logan Circle/U St. really need a second grocery option. Whole Foods was a madhouse last night. Not that I really mind that, but DC people aren’t really … aware of anyone else besides themselves. There was a lot...

Disbelief not suspended!

For some reason I was thinking about the movie The Devil Wears Prada and the scenes where it was noted how long it was taking for Andy to bring Miranda’s coffee and it still doesn’t mesh in my head. I...

Pride 2007: Afternoon update

I know these titles make it seem like I’m really into Pride this year, but I’m just being silly. I managed to get 4 loads of laundry done, dropped off some dry cleaning, put some vitamin water bottles in the...

I need a montage!

Andrea: My personal life is hanging by a thread, that’s all. Nigel: Well.. join the club, that’s what happens when you start doing well at work, darling. Let me know when your whole life goes up in smoke. That means...

Back to Black

Amy Winehouse and a case of wine probably would have been a good mix last night. I got home the usual time after a side-trip to two Radio Shack stores to pick up a graphics card that the site said...

Misanthrope Thursday

Misanthropsday? A few things here and there are making me feel as though I’m having a Murphy’s Week. Not to the extreme, just a bunch of annoyances dealing with the human race and as such, I hate people today. I...

This is always on my to-do list.

First off no context needed, but remember when junk only had two meanings? So the Academy Awards have come and gone and I find that I’ve actually seen nominated movies this time around. By that I mean anything nominated for...

After the Show with Urban

I almost forgot the best overheard of the weekend. After we were leaving the theater a couple right behind us was talking about the movie and the woman says to her boyfriend/date/friend, “I didn’t think it was going to be...

Letterbox robbery!

Metro fare to Gallery Place: $1.35 Bottled water and candy for two at CVS: $4.00 Movie tickets for two to see Dreamgirls: $20.00 If this is the MPAA’s and retail theater industry’s response to piracy, I don’t understand how they...

snippets

It’s no fun waking up with your stomach feeling like you ate a fully inflated beach ball whole in your sleep and realizing that, even sick, you’ve got to go to the office. I managed to get myself moving, listened...

A Robert Hays, Pam Dawber vehicle…

Does anyone remember the movie version of this book from the 80s? For some reason, cheesy effects, plot and all, I loved it. I saw it so many times on cable by the time I was 15 I could recite...

Queen and Country, James…

Apparently Daniel Craig has no problem playing Bond. Gay Bond. Says he: “I mean, look at Doctor Who – that has had gay scenes in it and no one blinks an eye.” He’s also prepared to film a full frontal...

Sweet! (potato)

I’ve learned my lesson, the old ways are often better. Since my Saturday was so full of exciting plans (I needed to go out for light bulbs) I decided I’d continue the T’giving theme and make a sweet potato pie....
