HELLO MIRANDA KERR

I’m the last one to jump on the Miranda Kerr bandwagon because she dates that weenie-hole Orlando Bloom, but this picture pretty much speaks for itself.

J.D. SALINGER 1919-2010

Author and noted recluse J.D. Salinger passed away today.  Salinger wrote The Catcher in the Rye and has spent the last 59 years telling Hollywood directors and producers to stay away from it.  It’s an amazing read.  If you haven’t read it, then go read it.   He may be gone, but The Catcher in the Rye will be around forever.  Rest in peace, J.D.

iM UNiMPRESSED WITH THE iPAD

Apple released its latest product today the iPad (sounds like a feminine product doesn’t it?).  To sum it up it’s like a gigantic iPhone that can’t make calls – it has 3G, plays music and videos, and has WiFi.  It’s supposed to fit somewhere inbetween an iPhone and a laptop.  I get it; I just don’t need it. 

I think it’s safe to say bloggers and apple fanatics alike were expecting something more – maybe a full service tablet computer.  I guess Apple can’t hit it out of the park every time. 

Will I get one?  No way.  I have no need for it.  I have both a laptop and an iPhone.  Interesting move, Apple.

NEW MUSIC TUESDAY: BEACH HOUSE

I’ll admit I was hesitant to give the new Beach House record a spin.  I had tried to get into some of their earlier stuff and was left scratching my head.  I could understand why Pitchfork liked it (they really dig indie dream pop), but it was not for me.  After reading a couple of reviews for Teen Dream this morning, I decided to go ahead and purchase the whole thing, and I couldn’t be happier.  It’s a great album – definitely going to be in my top next December.  I suggest you download it.  You can do so here.  Excellent job Beach House.

PANTS ON THE GROUND IS SO VIRAL

When can we retire “pants on the ground?”  I guess no time soon.

AVATAR SINKS TITANIC AS THE HIGHEST GROSSING MOVIE OF ALL TIME

James Cameron’s Avatar has just passed James Cameron’s Titanic as the highest grossing film of all time world-wide.  I guess I’m not as depressed as I could be seeing as Titanic used to hold the record and that movie is kind of miserable (unless you’re a 13-year-old girl or an old lady with lots of cats).

James Cameron is an interesting guy and applaud him for his accomplishment, but that still doesn’t make me like Avatar.  I’m also in the minority that thinks 3D is not that interesting.  I understand that the images come off the screen, but it gets old quickly.  I read today that they’re going to do the next Gremlins movie in 3D as well as the next Ghostbusters.  I guess I’m going to need to get used to it.

Maybe I need to see Avatar again.  I think I’m missing something.
