Here’s a quick post for you all this Friday! Me, Sofia and Nik have finally gotten a sort of rhythm going and have put out the 80th episode of Across the Universe Podcast. It is about the end of the world, sort of, because that’s literally what’s happening around us. We recorded this a few weeks ago and it’s apparent that the situation has gotten worse. Despite of that, the lessons and reminders from this episode are still very much valid!
Well, here we are, back at it with a Commercial Break. I know I promised to make these monthly but I like to fail apparently. This week though, I’m bringing you the first Commercial Break of 2020! It is basically a catch up and a monthly summary of how crazy my February was. I ended up seeing quite a lot, I finished books!, and overall, had a fun time.
My first and only theme I suggested for this years’ Thursday Movie Picks will be about women seducing boys – the Mrs. Robinsons. There could be a few angles one could go with this theme, including the comedy route, but I’m sticking with drama. Also, I feel like it’s important to point out the irony of the Mrs. Robinsons theme – I feel very uninspired this week. And I have no idea why. So if this seems unedited, it’s because it is. (lol)
In this week’s Across the Universe podcast episode we discuss Summer blockbusters we are excited to see with Katy from Oh So Geeky. In theme with that, I’m bringing you five movies I most likely won’t see this summer. May it be uninteresting, may it be a genre I’m not spending my ticket money on, you name it. Sometimes movies simply don’t call out your name, and these five haven’t even whispered to me.
Last week was weird, and by weird, I mean horrible and shit but wonderful at the same time. Lower back pain is no fun at all, and even while sitting and not moving much, it hurts and you are constantly feeling discomfort. Meanwhile though, I spent my days watching movies with Sam Rockwell, and doing some light-reading, so it was actually like an enjoyable discomfort..?
Last week was another successful blogging adventure, and I couldn’t be happier about it. I had a short work week, but I did have to do other work-related stuff on the weekend, so I still didn’t have much free time on my hands. That’s were my newly found organisational skills come in handy. Girl has been scheduling posts like a madwoman, and honestly, I’m more surprised that you are, that I have pulled it off for two weeks now. I’m surely going to mess up soon.
Phew, I feel like a huge stone just fell off my chest and I can finally breathe! My epic pretty-much-endless-scroll-collage of a 1000 scenes from a 1000 movies as Mettel Ray’s 1000th post was published, and I feel almost free. But I know that I can feel completely free only if I say the following…
I HAVE AN ACCENT!
Ask me to recommend movies about musicians, easy. Ask me to recommend movies about writers, even simpler. Ask me to recommend movies about actors, I could do that. Ask me to list movies about dancers, I could do that in my sleep as well! Ask me to share movies about painters, and will sit in silence and contemplate on how limited my choices are. Granted, I know quite a few movies about painters, yet I have not seen those movies – and hence this vague list of movies about painters.
