Pulp v. Gump

In my mind it is very clear that there is a two-way tie for the best movie soundtrack ever. And anyone who disagrees can kiss my ass, because you are just plain wrong. The best two soundtracks are Pulp Fiction and Forrest Gump. I am watching Forrest Gump right now and every single time I watch it I like it a little bit more. It is hands down my favorite Tom Hanks movie and that is saying a lot because he’s had some really good movies.

I’m boycotting all social engagements this weekend. I am sick of people in general right now and I felt like staying at home. I started my very first oil painting this evening and I realized that 1) oil paint is a difficult medium to work with, and 2) I could definitely get into it. My first layer isn’t too bad. I am kind of impatience, so I don’t know if I’ll be able to get used to letting each layer of paint dry before I add the next, but overall I am happy with what I did tonight.

Tomorrow night is the Oscars. Considering I’ve only seen one of the Best Picture nominations (Juno), I have no idea why I am so excited. Every year is the same. I think it’s because I went to a film school my freshman year of college. I love watching movies, and I especially love watching really great movies. There’s just something about the Oscars that is fun to watch. I like seeing what people wear and which movies win. I usually get really annoyed with the acceptance speeches, but making fun of the speeches is part of the fun. And Jon Stewart is the second or third coolest person on the planet, so any excuse to watch him is fine by me.

Anyway, I’ve been slacking on my blog lately and I have a feeling I will continue to do so. My life is pretty damn boring right now and not even writing is giving me any motivation lately. So all you Dyck’s out there can just suck it.

I know I'll get some crap for this one but I've never tired of the soundtrack from Dirty Dancing.

If I read paragraph #2 right, you cancelled all your social opportunities so you could stay home and watch paint dry.

Maybe you need more interesting friends?
