Inception

During the first 20 minutes of the film i was thinking “I don’t think i needed this popcorn, i ate too much sushi at dinner” as well as “hooray for seriously interesting movie plots.  It just doesn’t happen enough!” And although it was twisty i felt i was following along nicely.  But then it all went to shit and i was left not knowing what the fuck happened.  Here’s the thing.  I don’t mind movies that make zero sense, as long as they are fucked up enough to warrant it.  Feel me?  Take for instance any David Lynch film.  You don’t need to try to figure it out because you are too busy being amazed by the sheer insanity of it all.  Inception however wants you to figure it out…but you can’t…my theory is because there are mad plot holes but i could be wrong.  I don’t know.  And frankly, i am not sure if i care.  The acting however was great, the editing and visuals were pretty awesome, and the soundtrack was rad.  Also there were some hot boys outside who made some funny jokes about how they didn’t get it either.  That was cool.

And so, to make myself feel better about feeling lost i want to think about something that i can really understand and get behind.  I give you….

That’s right ladies, a bra that holds an entire bottle of wine!  This gem not only gives you bigger boobs (for about 15min anyway) it allows you to get hosed…through a hose!

Now if only i had this in the theater……

**thanks mom for the tip on this one!

Scott Pilgrim Vs The World

Ok, i officially take back every bad thing i have ever said about Michael Cera.  I have never read the graphic novels so i don’t know how the real fans felt but OMG i loved EVERYTHING about this movie, including MC. And not just because there is a quote about vegan’s being better than everyone (or something like that). The story was fun, the characters were brilliant, the dialog was amazing and the visuals and editing were STUNNING.  Love, Love, Love!  I think what made this film especially fan-fucking-tastic was the “in between moments”.  Yes, perhaps i have been watching too much So You Think You Can Dance, but you’ll know what i’m talking about when you see the movie.  All of the spaces were filled.  With awesomeness.

Ok…i am mad tripped out right now because i just checked IMDB and Brie Larson plays Envy.  The whole time i thought “she seems familiar but i think she just looks like who i’m thinking of” (you with me?!)…but it’s KATE from UNITED STATES OF TARA!  One of my most favorite characters on on of my most favorite shows….so weird.

Ok, trip out over.

If you like funny, if you like fighting, if you like quirk you will really like this film.  It is the official holder of the Kick Ass Award.

Why Today is Wicked Awesome…..

1. I am on day #3 of being free from smoking!  Had a follow up laser treatment and it’s really helping.  Although i don’t feel like dancing in the street i also don’t feel like ripping anyone’s face off.  I’d say i am in a pretty tolerable middle ground.

2. I love my city!  How the eff have Maude and i lived downtown for years without riding over the Burrard St bridge?!?!?  Today was the day and it was lovely.  Rode over, grabbed a bite to go at Planet Veg (how the eff have i been vegan for a year and 8 months and not eaten there?!?!) and then carried on to Kits beach to sit and eat and read in the sunshine.  As i said, lovely.

3. The weather is **skip to the next one if you are Josie** perfect.  After a seriously shitty start the summer is shaping up nicely (and so are my alliteration skills).  Here’s to hoping it extends late into September because OMG it’s ALMOST AUGUST!!  Wow.

4. I got a kickin deal from Rogers.  After an hour on the phone, threatening to cancel and go to Wind i came away with a super deal on my plan.  It’s still way to much money but at least i am saving a bit…..thanks Kyle of customer relations!

5.  A Complicated Kindness by Canadian Miriam Toews (us canadians should know how to pronounce that after the Olympics). That’s the book i am reading and it is radtastic.  If you are a fan of kind of dark and twisty, unconventional literature i highly recommend this book (as well as The Flying Troutmans by the same author).  I would say that if you dig Chuck Palahniuk, or Nick Hornby, or Christopher Moore or Kurt Vonnegut you would also dig Miriam Toews.  If you dig all of those authors you are the official winner of this weeks KICK ASS award! Congratulations!!  I’d like to link to all of the authors above but i am too lazy.  Please copy and paste into Amazon or the like.

Things that made me go hmm….

Everything is a balance and for the 5 things that were rad today there were 2 that made me say wuh?

1. High waisted jean shorts.  Saw some at Kits beach.  Barf.  There are many reasons they went away and camel toe was only one of them.

2. There was a guy in Planet Veg wearing a ZeroFootprint.net T-Shirt ordering a yogurt cone.  Not to be a dick but supporting the dairy industry does not result in a zero footprint.  Of course, no one is perfect, and we can only do what we can do, and anything we do is better than doing nothing at all…..

I just think it would be like if i was wearing my Jesus I’m Drunk shirt at a straight edge satanist conference.  That’s all.

Is it just me?

Is it too early?  have i not had enough coffee yet?  or do the words on this page seem just a little fucked up?  i felt like i was reading a david lynch movie instead of a website about a restaurant.  Anyway, if you think i’m crazy and this makes perfect sense i’d love to know.  Also the picture on the site is not effed up, that’s just my piss poor screen shot/cropping ability before 8am 😛
