I don't know if the demand is popular or not, but I so want to do a picspam post, so who cares!

Actually, I think Drew Baylor is my favorite Orlando character. I mean, there is nothing to compare with the hotness of the angsty, wounded, scruffy Balian, but Drew is just nice. And my rare crushes on ficitonal bad boys notwithstanding, I think there is nothing as sexy as nice and dependable and decent and sweet.

Yeah.

So, in that vein, Elizabethtown pics. WARNING: If you have dial-up, this is going to kill your connection. I decided to be a very thorough girl, and as a result, there are almost a hundred pictures here. And a lot of them are huge. (If a lot of people with dial-up want to see these and can't load the sheer volume, let me know and I'll break this into 5 entries of 20 pics each or so). Anyone make me an Orlando icon from them? Pretty please?

Click here for Orlando. Lots and lots and lots and LOTS )

In other news, I really recommend Matt Ruff's Fool on a Hill. It's probably my favorite fantasy novel that wasn't written by someone named Tolkien. It's whimsical and funny and creative and romantic. I know I am a bit biased because it's set in Cornell: the cemetery which George sits at is one I walked through a number of times, the bridge where Rubbermaid (yes, indeed) and Preacher face off, is the one where my husband and I had our first kiss. But even if you've never been within a 1000 miles of Cornell, it's still a brilliant and funny and emotional book. The plot? Mr. Sunshine (who is really the narrator) sets in motion a whole complicated and complex plot for the sake of a good story, not caring who gets mangled in its wheels. It involves George, a writer who will have to battle a dragon before the book is over to save his True Love Aurora (a co-ed from Wisconsin); a whole society of faeries with Shakepearean names; Tolkien House (which is surely the coolest frat ever); Luther, a dog who is searching for Heaven; the Bohemians, a group of non-conformist political and art activists led by Lion-Heart; and Ragnarok, one of my rare tortured-boy crushes. I love love LOVE that book, and cannot recommend it more highly. Oh, and for the Veronica Mars connection, the whole Preacher-Jinsei-Ragnarok thing reminds me a bit of Duncan-Veronica-Logan. Hmmmmm.

Just saw Elizabethtown. Loved it.

While the road trip part is a bit too long (and a bit too sappy), nobody can show what falling in love feels like the way Cameron Crowe does. The movie is also full of those real, little moments that happen but never get put into the movies, but when CC does put them in, you go "of course. I've done so and so many times!"

Also? Orlando Bloom is still the most beautiful man I've ever seen. Plus, I think it's his best performance to date.

I am planning on seeing it again. Pronto.

Oh, and I need an OB icon. *swoon*

As of today, there are six movies in the theater I want to see. When am I ever going to get the time? :)

(and non VM people breathe a sigh of relief):

Here they are in order of my wanting to see them:

1. Green Street Hooligans: A movie with Charlie Hunnam (drool, drool, drool) and Eljah Wood (fangirl squee) as football hooligans? Yes please. Plus, I love the poster in the metro station. And who says advertising doesn't work. Especially when said advertising is Charlie Hunnam (who should be forced to reproduce for the good of human race) and Elijah Wood (who I adore, even if it's in "give him soup and blankets" kinda way), looking all grimy, violent, and intense. I mean, it's Nicholas Nickleby and Frodo kicking ass!

2. Proof: I love the concept of it: a mathematician's daughter trying to deal with the fear of going insane, some love stuff, and oh yeah, a mathematical proof. It's such an intelligent play and I just want to see something that really makes me think and feel at the same time.

3. Elizabethtown: And speaking of Lord of the Rings alums. It's Orlando! With an American accent. The movie itself looks really nice and cute and funny, and hey, even if it sucks, the eye candy will compensate.

4. Wallace and Gromit: This is more of Husband's thing than mine, but how can you dislike claymation? Come on, it's like killing puppies.

5. Everything is Illuminated: Frodo searching for his Ukranian roots? Sounds good to me. Not good enough for me to have seen it for the couple of weeks it's already out, but still, on the see list. Any hope that his Ukranian roots will include the football hooligan Charlie Hunnam?

6. In Her Shoes: Not much interest in chick flicks, but I read the book and didn't hate it (didn't love it either) and it's playing right next door.

I think I'll move into a movie theater.
