A-Z Challenge: I

So. I realized I had no REPLY TO on my comments.

I tried everything they said to make it show, but it won't.
Yes. It's set to embed. Yes. It's set to full. Yes. I cleaned the cache. All of it. *sigh* I could have sworn it was there before though. That may bug me more.
I had to add a special button and even now it still won't trend the way it's supposed to. Grrrr.

If anyone knows how to make this happen without having to redo the whole blog that would be awesome :)

I also realized my text went super tiny. That is fixed as well. As you can see...


We are on day I :) And I'm on time! (ish)


Oh sweet Impromptu. The tale of George Sand as she pursues the sickly genius that is Chopin.
Very few of the characters are likeable. Really. You'd only hang out with Musset because he had the booze. And Marie D'Agoult is just so bitter. Funny at first glance, but toxic after more than a minute. Liszt and Chopin are the best of them, while George is just George.
However, they are all so well played that is keeps you watching them go about their drama. And the music is well, wonderful. A number of familiar faces here.
Judy Davis, Hugh Grant, Julian Sands, Bernadette Peters, Mandy Patinkin.

Marie D'Agoult: George! You'll want to sit over here, my dear - all the respectable people are on the other side.

Yep. Another geek flick.  A modern remake of The Fantastic Voyage. This time we have Martin Short, a hypochondriac who finds Dennis Quaid shrunk and injected into his butt. The chase is on with bad guys wanting the chip and the good trying to get Quaid out safely. A fun little movie with a catchy soundtrack. Meg Ryan is the love interest and Robert Picardo plays the bad, bad Cowboy.

Lt. Tuck Pendleton: When things are at their darkest, pal, it's a brave man that can kick back and party.

A little movie that is a tad odd, but mostly sweet-ish. I like it. It makes me smile. 
Sarah Jessica Parker and Eric Schaeffer play roommates who make a death pact. To save themselves they have to find a special someone before that day. Enter Elle Macpherson as Jane, the woman he has had a crush on for 5 years. Ben Stiller is artist Bwick Elias who woos Lucy.

Lucy Ackerman: You know, I sort of like this dating thing, I'm sort of getting the things here. What I do is, sit back and watch as these strange men try to impress you in weird and stupid ways and then... and then you pick the least disgusting one, I guess.

  1. The Blogger commenting system sucks a lot.. I highly recommend anyone who uses Blogger to install Disqus for comments. So much easier to leave comments, and I'll receive an e-mail when a comment is replied to.
