behind the scenes

But wait… there’s more! If you were itching to get behind the scenes, want to see my daughter’s date get kissed by her father or just want to see more from the Homecoming photo shoot this past weekend… here is your chance. Created by my lovely and talented movie making spouse– a minute of fun and smiles, flowers and pretty faces.

great gatsby!

The moment all Baz Luhrmann fans have been waiting for has finally arrived- the trailer for The Great Gatsby is here for your viewing pleasure. The films release date is December which seems an interminable amount of time to wait, but perhaps your chance to re-read the book? Or time to get over the fact that they made it 3D which I hate. 3D is a ridiculous thing to do to a movie, a viewing experience worthy of cartoons and youngsters. If you want 3D get out of the theater and do something, for real.
In case you don’t already know, here’s the scoop on the film- The Great Gatsby is an upcoming American 3D romantic drama film adaptation of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel of the same name. Directed by Baz Luhrmann, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, and Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway. Amitabh Bachchan as Meyer Wolfsheim and Brendan Maclean as Klipspringer are set to make their Hollywood debuts in this film.

Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby= fantastic.

moves like Jagger

If you didn’t catch the season finale of Saturday Night Live this weekend with host Mick Jagger & Foo Fighters- you missed out. I would recommend the whole episode, full of special appearances by John Hamm, Steve Martin, Arcade Fire and Jeff Beck. Here’s the link to a very entertaining skit- karaoke Mick Jagger impersonation by Fred Armisen.

I will admit I got teary eyed (along with everyone on-screen) as they said goodbye to Kristen Wiig with past and current cast members on stage. That girl is brilliant and we’ll all miss her. Here’s hoping she continues on with her fabulous career.
