Umm... yeah. I just had to get that out. Because it's basically the most kick ass name-dropping pseudo-rap ever, yes/yes?
In other news, there's this Amy Adams movie coming out called Leap Year about this girl who goes to Ireland to propose to her boyfriend because of some leap year tradition or some such nonsense BUT, of course, along the way, she falls in love with the scruffy Irishman who is giving her a lift there and then she's all CONFLICTED AND SUCH. Anyway, I've seen the trailer for it so many times now and the only thing I think every time is a. does the world really need another predictably sappy romantic comedy and b. I don't think I know the actor playing that Irishman but he looks SO FAMILIAR and he is actually kind of adorable in a rugged way. So then... a couple days ago, I'm reading Entertainment Weekly and there's a review and it mentions Matthew Goode and I'm like, "WAIT, WUT?!? CHARLES RYDER IS THE SCRUFFY
IRISHMAN?!?" because he was seriously the last person I would've thought of. I mean, after I found that out and I saw the trailer again, I could kinda sorta see that it was him but he seems SO DIFFERENT all scruffed up and with an Irish accent. Anyway, that served no point except to say that I was shocked. And I'm still not seeing the movie. No matter how adorably messy he looks. (And I actually haven't found him very good-looking at all before this so... yeah.)
Well, now that we're on the subject of actors who played in Brideshead Revisited and all, BEN! OMG, Bright Star is coming out on DVD in a couple weeks and I am SO EXCITED to finally be able to see it! I don't even care whether I like it or not; I kind of just want to own it because it's got the Ben (I did this same thing with I'm Not There a few weeks ago; granted, I bought it because it was the two-disc edition for only ten dollars and I do enjoy the movie but IT WAS MOSTLY FOR THE WHISHAW, OKAY?). So if I can find it in a store as soon as it's released I think I'm just going to grab that bad boy up right then and there.
Okay, now I have to go do something productive. Like work on writing reviews for my 2009 list (which is halfway done, along with other good songs from the year, here
!). Or watch Adam, which I just got from Netflix and have been anxious to see ever since I saw the trailer before (500) Days of Summer even though I've heard that it's kind of Lifetime-esque. Or, you know, play Sims or sit around and waste time doing nothing. You know me.
