Wedding day

Superbowl XXBFDXX

Apparently we're having a Superbowl party on Sunday, probably by invitation only. If you haven't been invited yet you probably wouldn't want to be there anyway. I'm not a football person, so I have to figure out how I'm handling it. Two years ago I watched the entire first season of Twin Peaks on Superbowl Sunday, and last year we went over to Mikey's apartment. This year people whom I don't see often enough will be gathered in our living room, so I'm going to want to be home to occasionally pop my head downstairs, say hi, and pretend that I actually care how the game is going. How much will I not care? Let's put it this way: I don't even know which teams are playing, let alone who has the better pitcher.

Anyway, the Pickuptrucksmanship guy has been parking illegally in front of our house for about a week now. This isn't bothering me any more because he hasn't been blocking our driveway since the first time I mentioned it. Usually there's a ticket under one of his windshield wipers. I guess he's okay with that, but if it were me I'd find a better place to park before the city adds me to their budget as a steady source of income.

On a different topic, I took the personality test which has been showing up on my Friends page for the last day or so. Collapse ) This is interesting to me because it really echoes how I describe myself.

Except that it's Nate, not my "partner", who can't seem to do the dishes.

Guess which movie I'm watching tonight?

It really is a shame when a musical number has to be cut from a movie.

Sometimes when a stage musical is adapted for screen, songs have to be cut to accomodate new material. This happened to several songs from Little Shop of Horrors, including Closed for Renovation, Mushnik and Son, and Ya Never Know.

In other cases, such as Covered Wagons, Open-Toes Shoes from Waiting for Guffman, a song is simply deemed superfluous, unnecessary, redundant, gratuitous, inessential, expendable, dispensable, unrequired and irrelevant.

In still other situations, a song might be cut for technical purposes. Once In Awhile from The Rocky Horror Picture Show was cut not because it was mediocre (as has been erroneously reported) but because filming was running behind schedule and the montage it was to accompany was incomplete.

On the other hand, sometimes the reasons for a cut are obvious.

If you don't recognize that, perhaps this snippet of a different song will help. Then again, perhaps not.

No points for guessing the movie, because I'm embarrassed by the fact that I like it so much.
