One of the mottos i live by is "Nerves are for people who haven't made up their minds yet." Yes, I am guilty right now, I hope I don't make a fool of myself this week! :S
On Sunday I watched the remake of the movie, Carrie. It was as awesome as the original. It stayed true to the original but had some modern updates- cyber bullying. Translates really well in the story; Stephen King was really ahead of his time when he wrote this. My favorite parts:
1) the blood drop
2) all the scissors pointing at mom
3) the carsplosion (it wasn't a car flip like the original but it was an equivalent disaster)
When Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge came out (i remember the first time i heard I'm not okay was the day after thanksgiving at 4am on mtv because i couldn't sleep and wanted some background noise. i was wearing my favorite green shirt and it was also the first time i heard She's the blade by Sugarcult. i think i was in the 9th grade. funny, the things you remember.) I was listening to that album on repeat for days! So much that I got sick of it and couldn't listen to it again for years. I don't know what got into me, I knew (know) the lyrics by heart and danced around my room to every song and then one day... I just couldn't stand it anymore.
A few weeks ago I lent Jojojo all my Weezer CDs (once upon a time I was a =W= fanatic) and saw the overplayed MCR album and decided, why not? It's been years! Turns out there is still a place in my heart (and iTunes library) for this disc. I forgot how exciting every song is and the great guitar parts and the story in the lyrics. Great to listen to at work before morning rounds to get pumped up.
I think I'm going to go through my old CDs and find more albums from the 00s I haven't listened to in a while. Might find some lost gems. :)
