Labor Day Weekend & DVD Tuesday

I’ve been in a shitty mood the last couple of weeks. It’s all because of work of course. Probably the reason I’ve neglected this site for a while. I was also getting over food poisoning followed up by a flu last week. Needless to say, my Labor Day weekend was pretty mellow. What I am looking forward to is fall. Only a couple more weeks until it’s officially here. I’ll keep my head up for that.

I had myself a decent little DVD Tuesday. Picked up Lost: Season 1. Never seen a single episode but everyone talks so highly of it. Got through 4 episodes last night and I have to tell ya, I’m hook. Pretty damn good stuff there. Also picked up Nip/Tuck: Season 2. That is, by far, my favorite show currently on TV. It just grabs ya and doesn’t let go. Season 3 starts Sept 20th.

Finally, I picked up Crash. This is, hands down, the best film of the year for me. Makes sense too if you think about it. Last year my favorite movies were We Don’t Live Here Anymore, Closer, Garden State, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I like flicks about the complexities of human relationships and Crash is very much about this. Set in Los Angeles and drenched with stereotypes, Crash attempts to explore the good and bad in all of us. It shows what could happen when humanity collides into itself with results ranging from violent to heroic to down right heartbreaking. It hits you were it counts and leaves a mark for you to dwell on for a while. There is no better flick you will see this year and I already can’t wait to get back home and watch it again.

Alright, not much of an update, but I figure I’d make it known I’m still alive.
