summer and sun…

Posted in Crazy Wisdom on Sunday, February 24, 2002 at 11:26 am by flerly.

Just pondering things that “belong” together, I guess…

Anyway.. other than a nagging head-cold that won’t give me peace, been an okay weekend so far. Took out a truckload of trash and unpacked boxes, without the truck… annoyed the heck out of some people practicing tennis with my repeated trips carrying stuff to the dumpster by the courts and tossing it, all clangy and banging down into it. Got looks several times…. like I care.

Saw Queen of the Damned and enjoyed it quite a bit… not that I can say it was excellent, just that I have a weakness for tragically beautiful characters like that, and didn’t mind the soundtrack either. They really did Lestat as a rockstar the way I would have loved it…. much better than me reading the book in the late 80s thinking, oh god, he’s joined Journey or something…

I’ll blame it on weakness from being sick, but also couldn’t manage to get up from the couch or change the channel, so I watched 3000 Miles to Graceland, and enjoyed it, too. Pleasantly surprised by the soundtrack, and just stunned by the body double for Courtney Cox.. I mean, she’s attractive, but that pan up the bed on the rear view of “her” in bed.. Yeah, right that’s Courtney Cox.. she wishes. In my mind, that body double just STUCK OUT as phony…

Anyway… The tattoo trip didn’t go as planned. When we picked designs, it turns out they want several hours to torture us/er draw them, so we had to make appointments. Now it seems we will have to reschedule our appointments, too, for next week… but we’ve got $100 deposit down, so we’re going to do it.

Thanks to Buffyfan for the turn on to Cibo Matto – Sugar Water.

Anyway.. to quote.. “Better go get ready, $sigother is due home soon” and we’ve got tickets to David Copperfield.

    So, thumbs up or down? Is Queen of the Damned worth the $6 bucks?

    Um… that’s difficult. I give it thumbs up, because I liked it… but I have to qualify that with I’m a funky, vampire, gothic, movie kinda girl… and I love the book series it’s based on. SO, I’m kinda biased. I’d see it again.

    Okay.. just got a 2nd opinion on Queen of the Damned. Guy I work with, big Anne Rice fan, LOVED Interview with the Vampire.. HATED Queen of the Damned because it had tried to combine two books into one “mainstream” movie. “Was very dissapointing,” he said. He wanted more history, more depth, more of all the stuff that made mainstream people hate the first movie.
