A Valentine's Crazy Heart

Yesterday we saw Crazy Heart, a film staring Jeff Bridges,Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Robert Duvall.
It's a film about a seasoned country musician, his love of whiskey, and his adoration of Gyllenhaal's charachter. Bridges himself is musically inclined so the scenes where he is performing are actually enjoyable.
Crazy Heart is one of those movies that reflects upon actual life so accurately that it pulls you into the story and doesn't let go until the credits roll. Of course, it helps that Jeff Bridges happens to be such a bad ass actor. Maggie Gyllenhaal also did a commendable job. I am still singing a couple of songs from the movie. In fact, after the movie I wanted to go home and pick up the guitar and play a little.

"funny how fallin' feels like flyin', just for a little while."

Should you go see it in the theater? Eh, why not? I think you would enjoy it. The scenery and a couple of concert scenes look nice up on the big screen and the sound track sounds good throu the surround sound system.

On to the next thing- Valentine's gifts.
(Or St. Valentine's gifts...if you prefer)

Dale went out to the gym and came back with these. Actually, the gym was his excuse to get out by himself so that he could pick up these goodies.

Check out Charlie's photo bomb. That dog is constantly sneaking into my pictures.

Dale got me 3 necklaces (two of which he saw me admiring at one point in time), some beautiful flowers (Whole Foods has a wonderful selection), and a book about back pain.

The back pain book may seem random but I was totally excited to get it.

I got Dale a shirt that I had ordered for myself off of shirtwoot. I accidentally ordered the wrong size. The shirt fit Dale so I told him it was his Valentine's day present.


In Other News:
*I hear that The Black Keys have recorded a new album that should come out in March or April 2010. I hope they play SXSW this year.

*Rachel Ray annoys the shit out of me. Mostly, It's her voice- all scratchy and damaged.
Secondary to her voice, is her neck. It looks like her head was pushed down on her body, thus compressing her neck into an unnaturally short state. That's just mean. I'm sorry. (also, she says shit like "E.V.O.O." Blech. Team Paula Dean, all the way.)

*hope you have a lovely Sunday. We are going to check out the new Sprouts market and possibly swing by Bed Bath and Beyond. Rock and Roll, baby!

I recognize the gift box from Francesca's - cute necklaces! He did an excellent job on the flowers as well, but my favorite gift had to be the book. That is sweet.

If I had not planned Larry's valentine dinner for last night, I may have invited ourselves to the movie. I think I would like to see that one.

Oh, and I'm Team Ina Garten all the way. (And I recommend the Rachael Ray magazine... you can get some of her good ideas without hearing her voice or seeing her squished neck.)

I might run into you at Sprouts, as I'm headed out to do errands. If I do, try not to duck behind the aisle and pretend you don't see me, kay?

(Sorry for the long-winded comment. I think I had *one* too many conversation hearts today.)

Bee, you should totally go see that movie. I especially think that Larry will enjoy it.
It should be your next date night outing.

Food Network is lame. Only good show is Good Eats, and it's cheesier than Wisconsin after a Packers win.

I don't even have cable anymore. But the only channel I miss is Food Network. I am not ashamed.

Miss Bee, you know Dale loves him some food network. Be not ashamed. At least you can learn something when watching those shows. I can't say the same for the hours I wasted watching Rock of Love on VH1.

They cancelled Molto Mario for Pete's sake. Only proof one needs of the pact with the TV Devil.

I like Crazy Heart. Jeff Bridges was so good that I'm still a little mad at him.

Have yet to see the Crazy Heart, but 'tis on my list and am looking forward to enjoying it in the theater. Wondering if the book has actually helped heal the back pain. I'm a sucker for pretty flowers. Dale done did good! Have now become obsessed with all (two of) your comment deletions. :-O THAT bad, huh??

I delete the spam comments. You know, the ones that say "click on the link to check out how you can make your ______larger."
