A New Post

I wouldn't call it a come back, I merely got the writing bug today.

Taken from

From The Plastic Mancunian

  The Music Meme 

1. Which bands/artist do you own the most albums by?  Stereolab. They changed my life during Thanksgiving 1994

2. What was the last song you listened to? Chuck E's in Love by Rickie Lee Jones

 3. What’s in your CD player right now? Elastica. I was having a 90s throwback

 4. What was the last show you attended? A double bill of Kreator and Arch Enemy. Kreator has been around for 30 years and they still have tremendous raw power. 

 5. What was the greatest show you’ve ever been to? WOW! So many. If I have to chose it would be a 3 way tie between Tori Amos on her 1996 Dew Drop Inn tour. She was like a mystical creature singing her whole life.  Devo touring w/ Something for Everybody, just MAGICAL. Liz Phair 2003, she wore a sheer black negligee and wielded her guitar like the giant phallus it is.

 6. What’s the worst show you’ve ever been to? David Lee Roth 1990. His rhythm guitar player did most of the singing. We left after hearing them butcher "Unchained".

 7. What’s the most musically involved you have ever been? I'm not sure what this question is really asking. I sing all day long, my co-workers love it.

 8. What show are you looking forward to? I'm praying Kimya Dawson is going to tour the east coast again soon. 

 9. What is your favorite band shirt? Queensryche from the Operation: Livecrime tour.

 10. What musician would you like to hang out with for a day? Adam Ant, he's fascinating and he has dreamy eyes.

 11. Who is one musician or group you wish would make a comeback? The Smiths. It's too late for The Clash :-(

 12. Who is one band/artist you’ve never seen live but always wanted to? Tom Waits. Please tour! Please!

 13. What was your last musical “phase” before you wizened up? I regret none of my musical choices. Even the ridiculous teen pop I loved in the 80s. All music is art.

 14. How many music related videos/DVDs do you own? 1, more Queensryche

 15. How many concerts/shows have you been to, total? I'm estimating about 100. I used to keep track.

 16. What’s your “guilty pleasure” that you hate to admit to liking? "Fancy" Iggy Azalea. I can't help it, such a catchy beat.

 17. What is your favourite movie soundtrack? Reality Bites, The Crow, or Guardians of the Galaxy.

Where's the Dreams that I've been after?

I'm back!

Check this out: my fellow blogger, the late phoenix, has dedicated his latest post to me. I'm so tickled! He's a sardonic, articulate & incredibly dashing blogger, read his stuff NOW.

It's no secret that I love Queensryche. Here's one of my favourites:

Right now, I'm watching "The Master". Joaquin Phoenix is the consummate actor & I think I'm falling in love.

Lights, Camera, Action

Hey, I'm posting. I couldn't resist spouting off on my opinions about movies and film. There's a difference! I have no idea if this will lead to continued posting. Il est ce qu'il est.

Today we ripped off a blogger named Rianna from the blog Frankly My Dear. She reports that she stole it fromRachel. It was a short meme, so we scoured the Internet to find another movie meme. Then voilĂ ! We found a meme from Gilby 37 from the blog Random Ramblings of a Broadway, Film and TV Fan. She said that she got it from Meredith ofForeverClassics. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Take the time to comment on other player's posts. It's a great way to make new friends! Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Sunday Stealing: The Movie Time Meme 

1. What is your all-time favorite movie costume? Varla's sexy black jeans and low cut sweater from Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

2. What classic film would you nominate for a remake? I hate re-makes. Possibly Annie Hall. I don't know why but why not.

3. Name your favorite femme fatale. Charlize Theron, that bitch is tall and lethal and gigantic bottle of hotness.

4. Name the best movie title. Clockwork Orange, very pleasing on the tongue.

5. Describe the worst performance by a child actor that you’ve ever seen. The idiot kid from Mimic. He supposed to be some sort of genius and then the last 2 minutes of the movie he starts crying. Really bad fake crying!

6. Who gets your vote for most tragic movie monster? Godzilla. She's just trying to find a safe place to give birth

7. What is the one Western that you would recommend to anybody? I really hate Westerns but The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is a fine redemption film and has a kick ass score

8. Who is your ideal movie-viewing partner? I have no preference. Alone, w/ my husband, w/ my family, who cares?

9. Has a film ever made you want to change your life? If so, what was the film? Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind made me want to really live life to the fullest.

10. Think of one performer that you truly love. Now think of
one scene/movie/performance of theirs that is too uncomfortable for you to
watch. Gary Oldman getting murdered in Prick up your Ears. It's so heartbreaking. 

11. On the flip side, think of one really good scene/performance/movie
from a performer that you truly loathe. Leonardo DiCaprio facing his dream demons w/ Ellen Page in Inception. I hate Dicaprio!

12. What is your favorite romantic comedy? Not a fan of the rom com at all BUT Breakfast at Tiffany's is an amazing film. It hits all the right notes!

13. What is your favorite drama? Pulp Fiction. Classic dialogue, really captures the height of the indie film boom.

14. Worst film you've seen? Cloverfield, shaky cam, terrible acting, implausible situations

15. How do you feel about the majority of romantic films being labeled "chick flicks"? It's a ridiculous labels as are most labels.

22. Favorite song in a film (doesn't have to be from a musical)? Mad World - Gary Jules - Donnie Darko

23. Best score from a film? Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, it evokes that wistful feeling of having a crush and the beginning of a relationship

24. Best film quote? I have a ton! Right now: "Hey, Peter.....what's....happening?" Office Space

25. A film you'd recommend that is a "Must See" for us to watch? Fargo, funny and disturbing.

Connect the Dots, La-La-La!

Top Chef recap time, y'all!

For the Quickfire Challenge, the cheftestants were surrounded by piles of pancakes. And then Pee Wee Herman came riding in on his bike. This sounds like a dream I had once. And on a side note, does  Paul Reubens ever appear as himself anymore? The cheftestants had to create the perfect pancake for Mr. Herman. Winning the challenge was Ed &  his pancake bits w/ fresh fruit and bacon. Sweet, crispy & BACON.

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants had to travel the streets & kitchens of San Antonio shopping for ingredients, stop into a local restaurant to cook their dish & then travel to the Alamo to put the finishing touches on the dish to make something Pee Wee will go gaga over. One cheftestant per restaurant. Which posed some problems for Lindsay who was a place but then decided to hunt down more ingredients & then had to back track to an available space to cook. Dumb ass! But that dumb ass went on to win the challenge w/ her stuffed zucchinis filled w/ beef cheeks, rice and goat cheese. Blech to me! And packing it up was Grayson's GINORMOUS stuffed chicken breasts. Aw nuts!

But wait! It was then revealed to the remaining cheftestants that all of the previously booted cheftestants went on to a final head to head cook offs w/ each other. Duking it out for a spot in the finale was the recently departed Grayson against Bev. I have a feeling about which way the wind is blowing on this cook off.
