El Orfanato [ The Orphanage ]

This movie is just traumatizing. Its not a scary thriller movie. It kind of is but isn't. The trailer just misleads. Its just one of those movies which you just have to see and not expect the things you expect right away. Great casts and i especially found the foreign language to be more powerful than in the language which we mostly are familiar with.

Wow. This movie is getting me thinking...


Saucony Original BULLET

[for better look] http://www.zappos.com/n/p/dp/22248411/c/110889/reviewcount/15.html#mr

I just got a pair of these babies. Very retro. Very low and narrow and soft. It feels like a hybrid of my grey Asics shoes and my Puma Morpheus. Was only $47. Sweet! Got 'em for my birthday.

This is probably my fourth pair of Sauconys. I first had the Shadow. Then i had my Jazz in white grey and black. Then i had the same Jazz but in blue, dark blue, and accent neon green.

This is a little different from the Shadows and Jazz since its lower and much lighter.


Pink Lady

Pink Lady was a famous Japanese female pop duo. They were big in the late 70s and 80s. I know of them through my mom. I always hear her talk of them and for some reason i start downloaded a few of their tracks. Its also because of Downtowns episode on Pink Lady, which made me want to research and listen to their tracks. I guess its all because of the Downtown show. If i don't know anything about Pink Lady, then i can't laugh at their jokes.

Listening to their songs now just brings that nostalgic feeling of that time. I can't feel the nostalgic memory obvious since i wasn't born at the time. But you know what i mean. When you hear the oldies, you feel the oldness of that time, even if you don't even have a recollection.

Luckily i have YouTube to bring me back to that era to show me the clips when Pink LAdy was around.


I have a pair of these and its been a great pair. i recall that i bought my pair at Untitled over on Clark and Diversey. I was hanging out with my friend Nikki and that shoe just so happened to be on sale for like $35. So i bought it right away. Its usually great during winter. Other shoes make my toe numb but this shoe doesn't. I guess its all because this shoe was sort of built for the winter and so the exterior part of the hoe is very strong from taking the cold air into the interior of the shoe. Plus if a shoe looks good when you are wearing shorts and pants. Thats a plus. Well a plus for me that is. I'm very particular when i buy pairs of shoes. They have to be compatible with any clothes i wear and when i wear shorts and pants.



I saw these at target and had to get them. Why in the world would Lego collaborate with Eggo? Because they sound alike...or simply Legos just kick ass!



I just watched this movie last weekend and it was worth it. It was very last minute. Watched the trailer in the morning then all of a sudden i just had the urge to see it that day. Looked up the schedule online and biked over to the Davis Theater over on Lincoln Square. I like the Davis Theater because its old plus its cheap. $5!

The movie was very sarcastic, very modern. Definitely something the kids today will enjoy and can learn something from watching the movie. It had that same feeling of Napoleon Dynamite, not as crazy and random, but also has that simplicity like The Squid and the Whale.
