Vivi Tells You What to Listen To, Pt 48

Isn’t there a Thomas Pynchon book with the number 48 in it? Okay, I just Googled  (the Google finger is fixed!) and it is 49. This is however 6 plus the meaning of life blah blah blah snore. So it is super life. Actually that would be 84. So many numbers!!! Random note that has […]

The Good, The Bad, and The I should have given it more time

Good: White House Down When going into the theater I knew it would be a “low-stakes” action film:  no real danger or serious violence.  I wanted a film that had explosions, fights, and Channing Tatum in a tank top. It fulfilled all of these requirements.  For me this movie is the equivalent of the stupid […]

Creative Parfait

I feel the need to write something about the three separate things I have experienced in these past two days that have moved me creatively and emotionally. I keep on trying to find a clever hook or angle. I was going to borrow the “blender metaphor” from a blog post I will link you to […]

Vivi Tells You What to Listen To: Insert Cover Pun Here

I love me some covers. So much so, I could have done this premise before and not remembered.  I have no desire to do “research” thus  this will be a cover post or another cover post. You decide.  Mostly this is me listening to a lot of YouTube videos  and deciding to make it a […]

Clearing the Queue: Parker

I understand that my need to watch every Jason Statham movie will lead me to bad movie town. With this moving picture I am firmly in this town surrounded by cardboard cutouts of characters, silly story lines, and not enough good action.  I have heard rumors this is based on a novel or some source […]

Behind the Candelabra

This is a movie that could have been a campy soupy mess but this turned out to be an ooey gooey s’more. The kind that are crispy on the edges, tasty and probably a little bad for you. Soderbergh excels at these type of movies. With fun, camp and a luxurious sheen to them.  He […]

MTV Movie Awards- Insufferable and Tiresome

I sacrificed a bit of my sanity to watch this mess. I did it so you didn’t have to watch this. For reals. I even bolded the winners so you don’t have to go no where else. I take care of my babies. Let me stroke your hair a bit.  Just how you like it. […]

Clearing the Queue: The Raven

I could have watched a better movie. Andreaboo had highlighted better movies on my list but I just ignored all of the highlights. I was going to watch Downfall but it was 2 and half hours long and I didn’t want to go to bed so late. And I didn’t want something super intense so […]

Vivi Tells You What to Listen To, pt 42

So the world has told me, 42 is the meaning of life or something. I am still in  chapter 2 of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and my progression with that book is a bit rocky. I do know that I need a towel (asciugamano) for some ungodly reason. I like quirky tings but can’t I just […]

Clearing the Queue: Red State

I don’t remember the last horror movie I have seen. I guess it would be Planet Terror. Or does Zombieland count?  Anyways, I  really don’t feel like I am fully qualified to analyze this as a horror movie so I will talk about it as a splatter-action movie. Now about Kevin Smith movies. I like […]
