Thanks goodness Friday is here. This has, in all honestly, been one of the longest week’s I think I have ever experienced. But it’s practically over! And it’s payday, which means I FINALLY GET TO BUY THE NEW ARCTIC MONKEYS ALBUM!!!!! I also signed up for the OKC Color Run today! And I finally had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of season! If you’ve never had one, you are missing out. It’s like Fall & heaven spun into perfection and poured in a coffee cup. Nectar of the gods? I say so.
In case you didn’t notice, it is in fact Friday the 13th, one of the creepiest days of the year, which means I love it. My new bloggy friend, Stephanie over at Be So Happy is a big horror movie fan, like me, & is planning a marathon tonight in honor of it being Friday the 13th. I think I may have to steal her idea & do that myself, though I will have to take a wee break so I can watch the season premiere of Haven. I’m not missing that, not after the season finale last year! (spoilers) I mean, not only does the meteor shower not stop, but Audrey & Duke BOTH disappear into the barn, leaving poor Nathan behind!
Now, on to Blogtember. Even as I’m typing this, I’m not sure I’m going to participate in today’s post. It’s supposed to be a self portrait, but 1) I don’t have a current picture of myself handy, and 2) I don’t feel like taking one today of all days, because I pretty much just rolled
out of bed off the couch & pulled my hair up & put on very minimal makeup & left so I could get my PSL. Actually, I have officially decided I’m not doing Blogtember today. Self portraits are not my thing. Moving on!
Movie/TV news time!
J.K. Rowling is to return to the wizarding world of Harry Potter in the form of a new screenplay for Warner Brothers! She’s writing the spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and it’s slated to be the first movie in a series. I’m pretty excited, as I’m sure most HP fans are. I’m also really excited for the BBC miniseries based on Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy. I probably need to read it first though. It’s only been on my list since before it was released. But I have time seeing as production doesn’t start until 2014.
I’m sure most Whovians have already seen this, I had planned on including it much earlier in the week but didn’t, so you get to see it now. The poster, title, and air date for the upcoming Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special has been released!!! <insert squeals of excitement here> The Day of the Doctor (which will see the return of my favorite Doctor & companion, David Tennant & Billie Piper), will air on November 23rd! That means I have until them to finish getting all caught up!
Since it’s been a while since I posted movie trailers, I decided I would share a few for some I’m really excited for.
This Parkalnd and it comes out on 10/4 (limited release as of now). It’s about the assassination of JFK –the doctor & nurses who worked on him, the Secret Service agents that where there, the man who caught it on video, Lee Harvey Oswald’s mother & brother–all the people around the event & the aftermath. I think it looks really good.
And this is obviously about CBGB’s, as you can tell from the title of the movie: CBGB :).
This is the new David O’Russell movie, American Hustle.
This is The Counselor – it’s about a lawyer who basically think he can get involved with drug trafficking and it not affect his life. He’s incorrect. It looks really, really good to me.
This is Disconnect. It’s about the dangers of technology – but not in a science fiction way, or anything like that. It’s about how it affects people, families, etc. One seemingly small mistake can change someones life.
This is for my fellow fantasy fans: Seventh Son – based on The Wardstone Chronicles books, which I need to start reading before I see the film. Jeff Bridges voice annoys a bit, but otherwise want to see.
And lastly, Drinking Buddies. It’s got beer, awkward sexual tensions, and Olivia Wilde, Anna Kendrick, and Jake Johnson a.k.a. the Nick Miller. How can you go wrong here?
And that’s about it for today. On second thought, one last thing…
I have purposefully not blogged about the SI fiasco currently surrounding my beloved Oklahoma State Cowboys football team. And I’m still not going to talk about it, but I am going to leave you with this:
I bleed Orange & Black. I’m a Cowboy through and through. And I will be until the day that I die.
