Alright. Sombody needs to get me some help. I'm hopelessly addicted to Pedro the Lion. I just can't stop listening. In my car, I've been listening to Achilles Heel on infinite repeat for about a week. Right now I am listening to Control . I just can't stop. Lucky for me, they're coming to the Cat's Cradle next Sunday, so I'll be able to enjoy them live.
The weather is crappy today. Freezing rain. They had called for mixed precipitation giving way to clear skies and warmer temps, but that hasn't happened so far. Just nasty ass freezing rain. That means we'll be slow as hell at work tonight. If it snows a foot, we would be busy as hell, but this stuff is just no fun at all. Nobody wants to freeze their ass off just to get a burger and a beer unless they can also play in the snow.
I messed up my rotation, and I won't be getting any more Netflix movies until Monday. Last night, I watched the 1965 version of "Flight of the Phoenix", which lived up to its expectations. I highly recommend it to anyone. Certainly not one of the best movies ever made, but really good nonetheless. I don't see how the new one can be any better, or really even worth the time. I rarely see the point when classic movies are remade. However, that seems to be all Hollywood does these days. Everything is either a straight-up remake, or heavily based on a classic film.
Speaking of which, I guess I am kind of excited about the remake of "Bad News Bears". I think Billy Bob Thornton should be perfect as Buttermaker. However, I think that Richard Linklater might try too hard to make it into a bizarro freaked out thing. I hope it goes well.
