This was one of those weary-inducing weeks, where real life seemed to take over and shove aside any moments of relaxation or joy... which means I didn't see a whole hell of a lot movies. The Netflix pile has been sitting there untouched and a few new Blu Ray discs have gone unopened. I did manage to get out on the golf course with some buddies, though, enjoying the first round of golf in 2 and a half months because the weather was finally above 50 for the first time in ages (this is Texas remember.... we had a brutal winter).
Still, there are moments of brightness. Baseball season is just around the corner and I scored my customary opening day tickets to the Rangers. Pre-season is in full swing and my fantasy league has been started. After a disastrous 9/10 finish last year, I look forward to redeeming myself. Still, it's always a good time with like-minded baseball fiends regardless of the outcome. I learned my lesson last year. Offense wins fantasy baseball, not pitching.
A few other links of note:
The latest LAMB director's chair blogathon is about to hit, focusing on new Hollywood "it" girt Kathryn Bigelow and fellow feminist Jane Campion.
1920's reporter guy strikes again.
And "A Prophet" opened this week, and that's a must see. "The Ghost Writer" is still lingering out there and I can't ignore the strong buzz its received. Hopefully, next week will quiet down.
