Lazy day yesterday...
...for Karma. I washed clothes all day...
...and watched This Is It:
Rehearsal footage, backstage action and interviews comprise this moving Michael Jackson experience. He is shown here preparing for a series of 50 sold-out London shows, which were scheduled to kick off in late summer 2009. Singing his numerous hits at the Staples Center in Los Angeles during the days leading up to his untimely death, Jackson is also seen refining cues, delving into dance details and working with director Kenny Ortega.
and The Lovely Bones:
When 14-year-old Susie Salmon (Saoirse Ronan) is murdered, she watches from above as her family deals with her tragic death -- and as her killer prepares to strike again. Torn between vengeance and healing, Susie's loved ones are forever changed. Mark Wahlberg and Rachel Weisz star in Peter Jackson's adaptation of Alice Sebold's riveting, best-selling novel; Susan Sarandon and Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci co-star.
Really enjoyed both of them.
Was fascinating to see the behind the scenes preparation with Michael Jackson. I watched the bonus material, too. Wow! The costumes he was going to wear were truly amazing! The way he was going to combine the short films with the stage performance...you could just about visualize being at show. No matter what, he was a great innovative performer.
I had read The Lovely Bones several years ago and, even tho I still prefer the book, they really did a pretty good adaptation of the story. Both are worth your time. (But if you have to pick one--read the book.) It's a sad subject--young girl murdered by a neighbor. Hard to describe, but it isn't what you'd expect going in.
Today is the big grocery delivery day! Biggest order I have ever made, I think. Be a little tweaking in the pantry, I imagine. Lots of bags for Karma to hide in--hehe! BTW--I do save those each month and return them for recycling to the delivery person. You may have noticed my bag-o-bags on my little green cart in the pantry. :)
So--today I will probably watch the documentaries on how we really raise our food. That's the plan. Have a good one! :):)
