Labor Day Weekend

Posted in Movies, Music, Random with tags , , on September 1, 2008 by Samantha Rose

I was very happy to have a long weekend. I was planning on sleeping for most of it. =) That didn’t happen. I woke up at 7:30 every morning this weekend. I was not happy about that. But, at least I’m starting to get a routine now.

Yesterday we decided we would go to Great Falls and go to  movie and then get dinner. Me and Molly were really excited that the theatre there had The House Bunny. After watching twenty minutes of previews (in my opinion, that’s way too many previews..) the movie finally started. After seeing a ton of previews for The House Bunny, I thought it would be hilarious. Yeah. We were disappointed. It wasn’t actually that good. It was actually mostly stupid. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Molly finally got her Justin Nozuka CD yesterday though. I’m still listening to it right now, so I’ll rate it later. So far it’s pretty good, but I’ve only listened to three Yeah.

So, I survived the first day.

It began with me being late-ish. We had orientation first thing, and when I got to the school, they had already gone in. I went to my orientation class, to find out that I was the second-to-last person to arrive. And, I had to be shown the right room by the principal. This didn’t help me much. I mean, I was not excited about school. I don’t really like it. (except english class…I don’t mind that too much.) Luckily, me and my best friend have every single class together except for one. That one just happens to be French. -sigh-

French class is already going bad. I have no idea what she’s saying! She talks really fast in French. Everyone else in the class has had at least one year of French. Not me. Thankfully, I sit right next to one of my friends, and she happens to be one of the best in the class. She was pretty much my translator today.

Things have been going pretty good. I’m just really tired already. I forgot how much energy it takes to sit in a desk and actually try to listen…=)

On a different note, I’ve really wanted to listen to some good techno bands, but I don’t know any. I’ve heard a few little bits of songs, but I don’t really know who their by. So, if anyone can recommend a really good techno band, please do.


Vh1, computer trouble, and me

Posted in Music, Random with tags , , , on August 25, 2008 by Samantha Rose

So…this post is slightly random. First off, I don’t know how often I’ll be able to post now, because, our laptop is acting up, and I think we’ve got a virus. =( Icky stuff. It’s hardly even worth starting our computer up anymore. -sigh-
Vh1 will soon leave my nightly routine, because I watch it starting at 1 AM. My nocturnal nights will soon be over. I am NOT ready for summer to be over, and for school to start. It seems like summer has hardly started, and already it’s ending.
Anyway, I’m watching Vh1 right now (LOVE IT!) and I’ve got a few song recommendations for you all.

Duffy. Except for her song ‘Mercy’. That song is sooo annoying, but her song ‘Warwick Ave.’ is really really good. Which reminds me that I still need to buy her CD….
Justin Nozuka. His song ‘After Tonight’ is genious. I could listen to it over and over and over again.
Matt Nathanson. I like his song ‘Come on Get Higher’, and I really like the cover Sugarland did of it. And then he sings ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Well, actually, I think The Killers might have done it first, but I’ve heard his version, and I LOVE it. Many thanks to Marcy for introducing me to Pandora, where I hear about lots and lots of people.
Relient K. I’ve listened to them for a while, but I just bought one of their older CD’s that came out in 2001. Their song ‘Sadie Hawkins Dance’ is really funny.
Okay…that’s all I’ve got to say for now…Peace!

Mamma Mia!!!

Posted in Movies, Random with tags , on August 17, 2008 by Samantha Rose

(If you’re planning on going to the movie, don’t read this post..there will be spoilers!)

So, me and Molly really wanted to go see Mamma Mia. It’s playing in the town a half hour away from us, so our parents decided we could go. We all drove down there last night and my parents dropped us off at the theatre and they went to go eat with some friends. Me and Molly were really excited to see the movie, and I’m glad we did see it. It was really good.

Usually, the whole random-song-dance-that-everyone-knows-thing bugs me. In this movie it didn’t. Not at all. The songs were good and funny, and the dances were too. It was entertaining, and I think they put music in the right places.

The plot was also good. If you don’t already know, the plot was that the girl, Sophie, is getting married, and she wants her father to give her away. The problem is that she doesn’t know who her father is. She knows there are three possible guys, and so she invites them all, thinking she’ll know her father when she sees him. But when she sees them, she still doesn’t know. The whole movie is about her trying to find her real dad, and as it goes on, she finds that journey just getting more and more complicated, because the three guys all think that they are her dad. The guys can’t figure it out either. So, Sophie asks her mother to give her away at the wedding instead, so the wedding comes, and you think you’ll finally get to find out who the dad is. Nope. She (Sophie) decides she doesn’t care who her dad is. At this point, I was a little disappointed. After all, that was kind of what the movie was about, right? Anyway, and then Sophie declares she doesn’t want to get married! She wants to travel the world with her fiancee/boyfriend (it’s not really clear what he is at that point) But, you still get a wedding. Sophie’s mother marries one of the possible dad’s, who is played by Pierce Brosnan. So, there is a happy ending. It was a good storyline, and it was a great cast. Amanda Seyfried (Sophie) and Meryl Streep (her mother in the movie) really did look like they could be mother/daughter, which was good. Me and Molly were both happy about that. Anyway, it was a great movie, and very fun to see.

A Little Bit Longer

Posted in Music with tags , , on August 13, 2008 by Samantha Rose

So, the new Jonas Brothers CD came out yesterday, and since Molly had pre-ordered the CD, she got hers today. We’ve been waiting for this CD for quite a while now, and we’re very excited to finally have it. In my opinion, the wait was worth it. These three brothers are incredibly talented, and if their last CD wasn’t enough to prove it, this one should convince you of that fact. The lyrics are amazing, and they write all their own lyrics, which only makes this CD better in my book.
There are so many good songs on this CD, it’s hard to choose my favorite. So, my favoritesare A Little Bit Longer, Lovebug, BB Good, and Sorry. If you haven’t already, I suggest you go buy this CD and give it a listen. You can check out their myspace here.

30 minutes for the clouds

Posted in Photos, Random with tags , on August 9, 2008 by Samantha Rose

These are some pictures that I took earlier tonight. My mom was nice enough to drive me around town for a half hour searching for places to capture the clouds. The one that I like the most is the one with the streaks of color through it. Those streaks are actually neon signs. For some reason, that’s the way it turned out. I think the camera must have gotten bumped or something, but the lights only blurred. The eighth picture up is actually a building (with the clouds behind it..) The lights from main street were reflected in the windows of the building, and that’s how it turned out. Anyway, I liked these pictures and thought I’d post ’em.
