~~ Before I left for Cincy, I saw Avenue Q with jenab
and it was great! The theatre was small, with no more than 150 seats and dang, those seats were not comfortable! The songs were great and the lead actor was adorable :) I prefer staying as spoiler-free as I can re: musicals before I see them so while I knew Avenue Q had puppets, I thought it was more along the lines of The Muppets ie you never saw the people which wasn't the case. Both the leads play at least 2 roles using different voices so how they don't accidentally screw up is pretty cool. If you get a chance to see it, I definitely recommend it. It's not every day you get to watch a puppet sex scene!
~~ Finished watching Avatar: The Legend of Korra
. I really enjoyed it but I think I was more excited about the nods to The Last Airbender -- OMG that's Zuko grandson! OMG that's Toph daughter! OMG AANG GREW UP TO BE A FREAKING HOTTIE!!
felt weird to find an animation hot lol
. The show has already been picked up for a 2nd season and on tumblr, someone made the comment that this will be the first time, in both series, that we will have a fully realized Avatar. Should be interesting to see what this will bring in the upcoming season. Although, I do miss how Aang's arrows glow when he enters the Avatar state. It just makes everything cooler.
~~ Does anyone watch Common Law
? Good show? I've started to d/l the eps as it looks like something both my mom and I would enjoy. My mom likes White Collar, Suits & Burn Notice but not Leverage so if it falls into a similar category, that'll be awesome.
~~ Ryan Murphy has joined Twitter and finally clued in that a surefire way to make fans happy is to start releasing deleted scenes. Now why these scenes aren't just included in the DVD set is beyond all of us. Considering they have a huge cast and the amount of footage they have/could have between studio recording, dance rehearsals & on-set time, the DVD extras are PITIFUL compared to other shows. We don't even get a blooper reel. Seriously. So, any little morsel given out is glomped on and praise & love is heaped onto Murphy. ( Collapse )
~~ ETA: Went for a walk
in the crazy heat, good planning there, Amy
and ended up buying... a handbag! I was on my way home, walking through the Eaton Centre for the air con, walk by Micheal Kors and a purple bag caught my eye. I've been wanting a purple bag forever, loved this colour so went inside to see what other styles they had. In less than 10 minutes, walked back out with this:
I love it ♥ Probably the easiest sale that salesgirl ever had!
