Last night, I was lucky enough to have, literally, a front row seat to a concert by the jazz group Jon Batiste and Stay Human. I’m not sure how that happened to little old me, but I’m sure glad it did. The concert was amaaaaazing and it was being filmed for PBS, so you’ll all get to enjoy it sometime soon.
Supposedly there were a couple celebrities in attendance, but the only one I recognized was the hip hop/R&B singer Eve. She’s so stunningly gorgeous in person that it was hard to miss her — especially because she was sitting at the next table. When it came time to leave the venue, my boyfriend, Eve, her handler/PR person/friend, and I shuffled to the elevator at the same time. But the elevator was broken, or something, so we all ended up standing squeezed in close quarters for about 10 minutes. Than, randomly, my boyfriend, who likes to tease me, said rather loudly, “ARE YOU NERVOUS STANDING NEXT TO EVE?!” Keep reading »

I saw Wall-E this weekend, and one of the more remarkable aspects of the movie is that throughout whole chunks of it, only two works are spoken: “Wall-E” and “Eve”, the names of the two main robots. Even though they are said perhaps a hundred times throughout the 97-minute movie, characters intonate the two names to convey different emotions. For example, when Eve thinks she has lost Wall-E, she says, “Wall-eeeeee,” and when Wall-E says “Eve-uh,” it almost sounds like he’s whining the way a dog does when it wants a treat. It’s amazing how humans (and robots, apparently) can say things without actually speaking the words. Keep reading »
I’m so excited to see the new Pixar film, Wall-E, so it better not disappoint. That would be like having a crush on someone, and then finding out they’re not half as cool as you thought they were. I have a huge crush on Wall-E. [Wall-E Trailer] Keep reading »
Admittedly, we’re not the most religiously educated group of folks on the internet, but maybe someone should take away Mitt Romney’s Book of Mormon and give him a good hard spanking with it. An ABC News blogger notes that while on the campaign trail in New Hampshire, Romney pointed out the large leaves in a couple’s front lawn and said, “Adam and Eve would not have looked as promiscuous if they had had leaves this big.” Um, correct us if we’re wrong, but Adam and Eve didn’t start rocking the foliage until after they ate the forbidden fruit and became ashamed of their nekkidness. For a man who wears his faith on his sleeve, Romney is scarily ignorant to God’s word. And second of all, if you’re the only man on Earth and you have sex with the only woman on Earth, how does that make you promiscuous? [ABC News] Keep reading »
