What you should see:
I’m recommending Juno this week. In the future, i will be pimping movies that i’ve actually, well, you know, erm seen, but since it’s been a busy week at Casa de Martell, sadly no new movies were watched. But this one, it’s a good one, i can already tell. Even my good friend Mr. Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 92% on the fresh-o-meter. I mean, the cast alone should make you want to see it…Superbad’s Michael Cera and The Office’s Rainn Wilson…PERFECTION. It’s Jason Reitman’s (yes, THE son of THE Ivan Reitman, of Ghostbuters fame) second film, and I’ve heard ONLY good things.
ps..anyone want to see it with me??!!
What you should listen to:
Because of the Times by Kings of Leon
these three brothers and a cousin are a blend of southern rock (but the good kind…not the scary, creepy kind) and a blues-y/indie rock. My favorite track is ‘Fans’, but ‘McFearless’ and ‘On Call’ are pretty great songs too.
What you should buy:
These are porcelain shopping bag vases. They also come in paper bag form
these are a PERFECT Christmas gift. they are different. and fun. and reasonably priced. and you can buy them here.
Where you should go:
If you are in the Greater Toronto Area, I highly recommend the Lula Lounge. It’s located in Little Brazil, and you can enjoy the Latin American music while you eat…and if you go on Saturday night, you can even learn to salsa dance.
Can’t WAIT to see Juno! I’ll go with you…we can go to Lula Lounge after 😉
i really want to see juno. i hope it comes to movies for mommies.
Okay, how amazing does Juno look! Can’t wait to see that. Except FORSURE my husband won’t want to see it. Argh. Why don’t any of my movie seeing girlfriends (you know who you are) live near me??? why???
Anyway, about those porcelain bag things…I saw those and thought WTF? But the ones I saw were purses. Still. I guess I don’t have a lot of use for fancy-looking things to put stuff in. But that’s just me, right?
Love the recommedations. What a great idea!! Definitely looking forward to Juno too. Apparently the woman who wrote the movie is really up-&-coming. She started out with a very successful blog. Hey, sort of like some of our urbanmoms!!
