Hi Kenan.

I just posted on the other thread: "You know, if we don't want a new Chicago thread, the thread I started could actually be all about serial killers and Chicago."

We got this one, which is not the one we set out to get but it was four inches smaller and a wee bit cheaper and we liked it better:

I watched Melinda and Melinda tonight. I enjoyed it. I have to say though, that now when I watch Woody Allen movies, I hear Jenny's voice in the back of my mind going, "misogynyyyyyyyy....." Even so, I thought it was a fine movie, and I detected no particularly misogynistic notes.

Ok so finally I can ask someone -- does anyone know the name of the company running the "ask the guru" campaign -- or something like that? It's a series of billboards and tv spots with a guy who looks like the dalai lama but it's for cable tv or something like that? I seriously can't remember and now it's driving me nuts.

Google has not helped me since I can't remember the name of the company and there are too many gurus on the internet.

I'm back. Travelling sucks, but the weekend was great. Best anecdote:

We played the wedding reception, then had to go hit our bar gig right away. However, we weren't allowed to go to our van because of a nearby FOREST FIRE. The only other car we had was a pick-up truck, so we piled five dudes + instruments + open containers in the back, illegal immigrant-style.

Of course we got pulled over within two minutes. The cop, and this is the part that makes me love Tahoe, was CRACKING UP. He was like "Aw hell no. This is wildly illegal, but I'm busy...have fun, guys. You didn't see me, and if highway patrol catches you then you're toast." He was seriously laughing as he went back to his car. We went on our merry way and sang gospel tunes in the back to stay warm, it was totally ridiculous.

Just got back from the Cubs game. Sarah got a foul ball! It bounced off of seats a couple of rows behind us and somehow ended up under our seats, where Sarah snagged it. It was awesome. Cubs suck.

Reviews of movies I have seen this weekend:

The Illusionist: Pretty mediocre. Giamatti and Sewell are pretty great, the rest of the movie is blah.
Candyman: Awesome, less cheesy than I expected, some pretty scary parts and good Cabrini footage.
The Inside Man: Fun. Snappy dialogue.

I was mainly excited about seeing Zambrano pitch, until he gave up four runs to the Pirates (the Pirates!) in the first inning and got pulled in the second. :(

n/a (Nick A.), Monday, 4 September 2006 21:41 (twelve years ago) Permalink

We also had the most stereotypical Cubs "fans" sitting directly behind us. Imagine this for 3+ hours: "Ohmigod, he's soooo smart ... he's like a fucking genius. A fucking GENIUS ... of course, he's a raaaaaaaaaaging alcholoic. I think he's got Napolean complex ... little man complex. But he's so smart."

I saw the movie Spartan this afternoon (as part of my Mamet kick...I've got Glenngarry Glenn Ross for tonight). I really, really liked it and I'm surprised that I hadn't even heard of it until the other night. Also, Brad Pitt would have been interchangeable with Val Kilmer in this movie.

Jordan (Jordan), Monday, 4 September 2006 21:47 (twelve years ago) Permalink

We watched Sexy Beast last night. It was better than I expected, although I can't imagine why I expected it to be not good what with Ben Kingsley and that other dude that I like and Oscar nominations and stuff.

Party Time Country Female (pullapartgirl), Monday, 4 September 2006 22:48 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Glenngarry Glenn Ross was different from what I expected it to be. It's a good movie and all, but honestly it's the least enjoyable out of all the Mamet movies I've seen. Probably because of all the salesman and depression.

Jordan (Jordan), Tuesday, 5 September 2006 01:10 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Hm. I love that movie. It's the Mamet movies with twist endings that really piss me off. Or Mamet movies with Rebecca Pidgeon. GGR has neither, mercifully.

I watched a Mamet movie last night, actually, or at leastan early screenwriting credit of his -- The Verdict with Paul Newman. Powerhouse acting from everybody (James Mason, Charlotte Rampling), nice dialogue, pretty subtle as far as Mamet goes. And then the courtroom scenes are PREPOSTEROUS. He didn't even both to check if the things that happen in the courtroom would in any way be allowed in any courtroom ever. The whole third act just goes completely to shit. Grrr.

Well, I had plenty of food. In fact, I probably got a little drunk off all the junk food, but I don't feel comfortable drinking in front of my dad, even just a little.

Nick said we're going to eat nothing but celery the rest of the week. I put a plug in for ants on a log to mix things up a bit.

DAN is your oven gas or electric? Sometimes electric ovens don't have a broiler drawer - you just turn the oven knob all the way to broil and then move the rack right up under the top heating element. Or, probably move the rack up and then turn the knob up to broil.

In other news, I am enjoying the new Justin Timberlake album, but I have some questions:
* Isn't the Summer Lovin' song melody a direct ripoff of Shai's "If I ever Fall in Love Again," just not as good?
* Does he really have a crack smoking problem?
* Is it any coincidence that TIMBERLAKE is working with TIMBERLAND?

Riddle me that stuff, batpeople.

Also, Amanda, aren't you getting there earlier? I forgot about my chiro appt, which ends a little before 5, but I'll head over right after that.

Hi Chicago.

I'm being a good little Jesse.

Saturday I went on a 3 mile run/walk (50/50), Sunday I did some weights, today the crippling soreness finally subsided enough that I could run again. I only did about 1.5 miles, 50/50.

(I think I told you that on Sunday I meant to go 1.5 miles but I missed my turn and wound up going 3 miles. Then it got dark and I was lost on a very very dark golf course in Audubon Park, wondering if alligators are diurnal.)

PS, the weather is pleasant. It's around 78 and not humid. Wait...78 at 9:30 AM kind of sucks....

-Met with a Unitarian minister today. Unitarians are open-minded and liberal, but to the point of being a little flakey. This guy insouciantly dropped the GD bomb during our conversation, which is unlike most ministers I've known.
