While I slept, the sun returned! Nice! I puttered with leftover card stuff during the night. These four cards are recycled cards. Re-made from cards I have received in the past. You just take the fronts of a card you get and put it on fresh cardstock to make a "new" recycled card.
And these are from a day I was playing around with colored markers, mister, and some rubber stamps.
I did finally watch one of the movies from Netflix--Crazy Heart.
When reporter Jean Craddock (Oscar nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal) interviews Bad Blake (Oscar winner Jeff Bridges) -- an alcoholic, seen-better-days country music legend -- they connect, and the hard-living crooner sees a possible saving grace in a life with Jean and her young son. But can he leave behind an existence playing in the shadow of Tommy (Colin Farrell), the upstart kid he once mentored? Robert Duvall produces and co-stars.
Karma slept on my computer chair...
...using the hard plastic arm as a pillow, of course.
Anyways, Jeff Bridges was totally convincing as the aging, alcoholic singer. I can see why he won the oscar. You get caught up in just watching him and watching him...almost like you can't help but look at a car accident as you drive by...but you still hope he can turn his life around, you know? I won't tell you what happens. All I can say is I was caught up in Bad's life till the last frame of the movie.
The movie reminded me of the atmosphere and storyline of The Wrestler with Mickey Rourke. Older performer, addicted, and a last chance type of situation. Both movies were really good and were presented with an unflinching honesty.
Tonight--the big Lost finale is on! I'm planning to watch and also tape--as I know it is so confusing I might want to watch it again to understand it--hehe! And then I have Avatar to watch from Netflix. Anxious to see what this other world is like with the blue people. From what little I've heard, it sounds like it could be my kind of place--hehe!
Hope you had a good weekend. :)
