christmas present no.2

May 31, 2012

2012 is going to be one fine holiday film season.

i was jumping for joy last week for the great gatsby premier…..

but that’s cucumber water compared to the strawberry milkshake coming out on the same day: tom hopper, the director of the king’s speech, will release his version of les miserables on december 25th as well.

thank you santa.

one of my first memories at the theater, les miserables had me smitten from the first chords of the bass and drums.

it was under the dark lights, and with the swelling orchestra felt in my lungs and throat, that the acting bug first embed its pinchers under my skin and never let go.

no doubt this film version will delight, the cast is loaded:

russel crowe is at the helm, portraying the vile and cruel, but heavily tortured soul, javert.

sweet, annie hathaway will exercise her pipes as the poor, dying mother fantine.

amanda seyfried, a trained soprano, will most surely beguile us as the the darling, innocent cosette, with the dashing eddie redmayne as marius.

samantha banks plays my prized role: the down on her luck eponine. who, in my opinion gets the best scenes and songs.

and the hugh-jack-of all trades-man will lead the cast as the dauntless, devoted, redemptive jean valjean.

les miserables: the french revolution, the reformation of a thief into an honest man, the sacrifice of a mother for her child, romantic love, love from afar-not returned, and social justice.

i love this story.

take a look at the trailer:

see you at the movies m’loves.

year in review…..

December 30, 2011

goodbye 2011.

can i get you a cab?

this year can’t end fast enough for me.

it was a top five suck, i must say.

i try not to be that girl who bares each & every single maudlin bullet point of a bad situation….so much has been lifted from la blog.

but we prolly all know, twitchy didn’t appear because of the lack of stress in my life.

yet even in the sadness and heartache, there was beaucoup de light and levity.

i had a oodles of fun with you guys playing the safe word game.

and it’s always a lovely time when i get to  visit with fellow blogger friends.

i was able to get a few acting gigs.

although, i definitely had my share of audition horror stories.

hunkiest and i escaped to waters blue & sands white.

this year, i raged. i ranted. but i also loved {fettuncine alfredo-that is}

and i finally did get my sorry ass up into crow pose.

but i still hate it.

 and of course i still am drinking coffee.

 a new year’s happy to you m’loves.

you’ve kept me dripping with grateful and coated in felicity.

thank you from the bottom of my beholden heart.

to 2012!

see you on the other side of sunday.

dedicated to my truest…..

moshi, moshi

today i have an audition for “ASIAN, sushi hostess”.

and just as it’s written above, ASIAN is clearly underlined, tagged and delineated in the casting notes; which is so crucial and material, because otherwise i’d definitely be working the whole “east-german” sushi hostess role. you know?  the trend that seems to be sweeping the nation? i mean the girls needed to do something after a life of flip turns and vitamins.

i’m actually perfect for this role. in college, my first job ever was as a hostess at a sushi bar.

you couldn’t cue a better cliché: west l.a. hot spot sushi + ucla half-japanese, freshman girl. the owner, fresh from his third stint in rehab, encouraged me to do shots with the patrons on my first night.

stone cold sober, i quit at the end of it. domo arigato.

thursday happy to you m’loves.
