Pop Culture Wednesday

This week I have participated more on the pop culture scale, as a result of finally getting my living situations calmed down.  I have settled into a more stable routine and have a new power cord for my laptop, so it can survive another day.  I think this is the third power cord I have had to purchase for this miserable laptop, so I may be attempting to purchase a new one as soon as possible!

The Expendables:

I was kind of excited to see this movie - I mean it has every action star in existence!  Sadly, I can't tell you even remotely what the plot was.  Something to do with cocaine. There were lots of explosions.  Jason Statham is particularly good looking.  That was about all I got out of the experience!


This was...okay.  When it was funny, it was REALLY funny.  Dax Shepard and Diane Keaton have excellent comedic timing.  Most of the time though, it made everyone in the room with me feel awkward.  Happy ending, simple story, light rental and nothing else.

Mad Men:

This season has just been meh for me until this week! Don and Peggy!!!!  Best idea in the entire world!  For some reason this whole thing got me giddy as a schoolgirl.  I will be back to getting excited for new episodes :).

What have you been watching/listening/enjoying this week??  I always need suggestions!

Last week we finally signed up for Netflix again so we could use Netflix on Demand. It's so awesome! My husband and I have been watching fun 80s movies together and rewatching Rescue Me from the beginning. I've been watching Coupling my myself. It totally cheers me up!

* Just finished season three of Tourchwood. Now I have to wait for season four in 2011. Bummer.
* I finally watched Mystic Pizza. Good chick flick that is getting a bit dated since it was filmed in the 80's. Apparently Matt Damon played one of the kids.
* I also watched New in Town with Rene Zelwiger (sp?) which was another nice chick flick worth watching. Very predictable plot though. What can I say my brain was fried this week and couldn't handle much.
* I also started watching Stargate Atlantis from the begining. I never did get to watch those in order.

Expendables: Mercenary regains his soul by doing the right thing for free instead of getting paid. Yeah- they didn't waste must effort on it, heh. It did have lots of explosions and pretty muscles though! *whistles innocently*

The Sorcerer's Apprentice was fun if a little uneven- I feel like there is probably a lot more development in the book that did not translate well to the movie.

Other than that, just Animaniacs and hunting around for more books to read!

I am so glad you are doing better. I've been worried about you.

If you haven't seen 500 Days of Summer I loved it. It is a great movie but you need to be a little clear headed to watch it since it doesn't follow a linear timeline.

Just started watching "The Big C" -- love Laura Linney.

I have been listening to my daughter's iPod (12 yo) and I have wanted to pull my head off after hearing how foul some of the lyrics are (kesha and three days grace)... gotta stop that.

glad u r feeling better..
