I saw John Travolta die twice yesterday. I watched "A Love Song for Bobby Long " via netflix then "Phenomenon" which happened to be on tv. Sorry if I gave anything away but it was pretty obvious it was going to happen in both movies. I had forgotten all about the Bobby Long movie, it was excellent. My head hurt from crying so much. Scarlett Johansson does a really good job in it. She is a great actress in a lot of movies. Phenomenon really pulls on those heartstrings too.
Lately when I think of somewhere that I want to go, I get depressed because I don't have my own vehicle with me (just yet). The car that I'm renting is depressing and I hate getting in and out of it. I feel as though I'm going to fall when I get in because it's like i'm sitting on the floor. I was going to trade it in today but it's Sunday and they are closed.
I heard that Paul McCartney was amazing live. I wish I would have gone! My friend Rick ended up going at the last minute and told me that Paul even did some songs from "band on the run". I'm so jealous of that. The Stones were in town a while ago (and will be back in March) but I ended up not going to that either. I figured, why would I want to see a bunch of 60 yr old rocking out. To answer my own question, because they are The Rolling Stones!
Granted my life isn't any better for seeing Bob Dylan this past year but The Stones, c'mon.
Next weekend I told my friend that I would go to her xmas party in Burbank. I'm looking forward to it, it's just that I found out that an old favorite 90's band of mine is going to be playing in San Diego that same night, and I haven't seen them in about 10 years. Uncle Big 'Ol Driver is a San Diego band but they used to play around here a lot. I've even seen them in Portland/ Seattle. They played with other San Diego local bands like Fluf and The Dragons. I just hope they play again. Did anyone see the recent Muffs show? yeah, I missed that one also. I did see Jon Brion on Friday. Ben from Death Cab for Cutie showed up and did about 6 songs with and without Jon. It was a treat. The man has talent. I haven't really been listening to DCFC in ages but after seeing him live, I think i'll pull out some of their CD's. One thing that I'll always remember from Friday night was when someone yelled out "girls just want to have fun" and Jon went right into that song but done in a "don't think twice, it's alright"/ Dylan style. It was the most hilarious thing he's done in a long time.
other good shows coming up are The Vacation with The Willowz at Spaceland on Dec. 17th, some of my favorite local bands playing together - that's what I like to see! I hope that Sons and Lovers can get on that bill also, might as well throw in Sabrosa Purr and make it a blow out party!
I must get out and try to join the rest of the world today. I've been staying home an awful lot lately. I hope things will change once I get my vehicle back.
