I’m watching the Video Music Awards, at least until I get tired of them — it can’t be long. I’ve never heard of most of the groups up for awards. I also can’t come up with anything to write. I have the first scene of my script due for screenwriting class, and I just don’t like anything I’ve come up with so far. It’s painful.
I ended up driving to KC to see “De-Lovely,” for the following reasons: 1). I can see “Napolean Dynamite” any time this week, since it’s playing in town, and 2). “Dodgeball” will probably be just as amusing on video as in the theater. “De-Lovely” was good – loved the music with the exception of Alanis Morrissette’s “Let’s Fall in Love.” I love Alanis, but that song was murder to listen to. She had the look down, just not the, hm, appropriate voice? Also the movie was heartbreaking and I love Kevin Kline and I don’t think I can talk much about the rest of it yet.
I rented “Bottle Rocket” to make myself laugh. Maybe it’s time to turn off MTV. “I’m calling my gang! Ka-kaw! Ka-kaw!”
