Here's the original Life Magazine article that inspired the movie Dog Day Afternoon. It's in my NFI queue.

Pop Tart Cat -- It's annoying and cute all at the same time!
And then there's Simon's rainbow sequined jacket. I love how Alex and Simon just don't give a damn when it comes to fashion. All of the other housewives dress exactly the same and it's so boring.
Okay, so I finally updated my blogroll. If there's a blog not on there that you think I should check out, please let me know in the comments. Some of you recommended some good literary links, which I'll be adding to the blogroll over at Stacked.
Sorry for the lack of updates. My on-line class is almost over and summer break is only 38 school days away. Then I'll have more free time for frivolous things like blogging. I feel like I'm always 3 months behind everyone else when it comes to the internet. Blogging was a lot easier when I was just a college student working at Kmart.
Chicks with Steve Buscemeyes. Not very pretty, but oddly intriguing.
Amy Sedaris works her crafting magic during a first date. And what is this place called Chipotle? I swear I've never heard of it until today.

Buried (2010): Ryan Reynolds plays a U.S. contractor working in Iraq who wakes up to find himself buried alive inside a crude coffin. All he has with him is a cell phone and a lighter. The entire movie is set in the coffin, so if you don't like Ryan Reynolds, you might want to skip it. Much like Moon, this movie has taught me that corporations are pure evil. EVIL! 3 Stars!
Sudden Fear (1952): This was another one of Joan Crawford's big comeback movies (she was nominated for an Academy Award). Crawford plays a middle-aged playwright who marries a young actor (played by a very young Jack Palance). Soon into their marriage, she discovers that he is plotting with his mistress to kill her for her money. I'm not all that crazy about this movie, but it does have some good scenes and Gloria Grahame is great as the trashy girlfriend. Um, and what is up with Jack Palance's face? Yikes! 2 1/2 Stars!
The Fighter (2010): I really enjoyed this movie even though the hardest scenes to watch were the ones where I realized I used to wear some of the same outfits as the sisters and the mom back in the 90's. Not a good look for anyone. 3 Stars!
Sisters (1973): OMG! How did I avoid watching this movie for so long? It's brilliant. Margot Kidder plays twin sisters involved in a bizarre murder. Jennifer Salt plays a reporter who witnesses the murder, but no one believes her story because there's no body. Did anyone get the ending? I thought maybe Netflix had cut off the last few minutes, but apparently that's how it actually ends. 4 Stars!
Flickering Lights (2000): Another movie I picked to watch only because it stars Mads Mikkelsen. This is one of his comedic roles. It's a bromance movie about a group of criminals who bond while opening up a restaurant in the countryside after stealing money from their gangster boss. They also shoot stuff...A LOT. 3 Stars! Some FYI for fellow fans of AMC's The Killing: The actress who plays Hanne in this movie was the original Sarah in the Danish version AND Mads' brother, Lars, played the politician part. Um, but he's not in this movie.
Extreme Couponing. I'm already obsessed with this show and I haven't even seen it yet, people.
Meanwhile, she has turned over her entire home to the storage of collected groceries. Her family used to have a rec room, but now they don't, because she uses it for couponing. So whatever the value of a rec room is, you'd better add it to the price of the ten-year-old mustard she's going to be eating IN THE YEAR 2021. Her husband's drum set has been shoved against the wall, so he doesn't use it anymore, so whatever the value of his hobby was to him, that will have to be subtracted from the value of something like 90 packages of cold cuts she brings home on a single shopping trip.
Ugh. Coupons are such a pain. If I'm signed up for the store's stupid club member card thing already, why do I still need to have extra coupons to get the savings? Can't they just insert some kind of chip into my body or something, so I don't have to carry around a hundred different club cards/coupons? I don't mind. I've come to accept the fact that there is no such thing as personal privacy anymore. Yes, I think I'm at the point now where I would gladly take on the mark of the beast if it meant I didn't have to carry around those damn cards anymore.
