Back from a long hiatus..

To all who have been loyal to my site, thank you for your patience.

As holidays and work were taking over my life, I have had little time to update. I promise to be a better blogger from now on. So far, check out my “Music in TV/movies” tab to get good info about songs in the biggest TV shows!

Hopefully everyone enjoyed the Oscars.  I think we weren’t too suprised with Slumdog Millionaire taking most of the awards, Kate Winslet FINALLY winning her Oscar *yay* Yet, there has been some debate about Sean Penn’s win. Many believe it should’ve went to Mickey Rourke.  My opinion: I saw both movies. Overall, I enjoyed Milk better and felt that Penn’s performance was nothing like I’ve seen a long time. With his method acting skills, he completely transformed himself into Harvey Milk, making us see a more happy, optomisitic Penn that we rarely see in his movie roles. Although I very much respect Rourke and his performance in The Wrestler, he was ultimately playing “himself” as the underdog, fighting at any cost for his comeback.

Best speech of the night definitely went to Dustin Lance Black for best original screenplay (Milk). His poise and sincerity of what winning the award meant for him and society at large was a very happy thing to see.

And what did everyone think about bringing former actors/supporting actors winners back to the stage to present the awards? I thought it drew out the show a bit, but I actually liked it. They tried to link similar nominees to talk about the year’s nominees. Interesting idea.

Hugh Jackman. VERY ENJOYABLE! He can carry a show! Also, loved that he brought Anne Hathaway to the stage to sing. What a fabulous voice. (FYI just read that she will be on Broadway this summer in a rendition of Shakespeare’s “In A Midnight Summer’s Dream”).

Gotta go back to making some deals. If you haven’t checked it out yet, watch the trailer for I Love You Man with Paul Rudd, Jason Segal and Rashida Jones. It will definitely give you a good laugh for the day.

Ciao

I’m Back!! With a political message…

To my loyal readers,

I apologize for the long hiatus. I think its been about a month (give or take). Bare with me.

Firstly, HAPPY NEW YEAR! We are in a new year for bigger and hopefully better things to happen.  Even though it hasn’t started off quite on the right foot, (drowning economy, foreclosures, outrageous numbers of unemployment, Middle East fighting), let’s stick to the positive with a new President and hope for a better year.

Let’s begin…

OBAMA IS OFFICIALLY PRESIDENT! As of Tuesday, January 20, he was sworn into Presidency with Joe Biden presiding as VP. it was a memorable day as everyone celebrated in tremendous ways. The Obamas even attended 10 inaugural balls Tuesday night. At the first ball, celebrities and average citizens alike sang, danced and applauded for the new president. Beyonce sang “At Last” for the couple’s first dance. She sang a strong, emotional performance, bringing her to tears by the end. As I end this political ramble, I feel honored to be alive for such a momentous moment that could never be replaced.
