Mr. & Mrs. Smith / out with Del, listening


Saturday I went out with my jedibubbles and we had a lighthearted fun time... we sat on The Green Couch at the local coffeehouse and talked for a bit, mostly about the Narnia movie coming out in December, and rambling on to other books we read as kids...

Then we went to see "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" which I had mixed reactions to. Endless pointless violence... but it was all done in a very sarcastic way, and kept us laughing most of the time. Bah. I want Angelina to go back to movies that I can thrill over and praise without reservation. This one was pretty good -- it had points of philosophy and depth, if you looked hard enough, but I just couldn't get into it. I suppose part of the problem of learning to respect every human means that I can no longer think in 'good guy, bad guy, kill kill kill.' The thing that bothered me the most, though, was the eroticized violence. A man beating a woman will never be anything other than disgusting and evil, even if she is beating him right back. And I just couldn't stand seeing my girl get beat up. Del kept leaning over and tapping my shoulder and whispering, "are you all right?" I suppose I must have looked even more upset than I was. But I did kinda enjoy it, because it was presented in a humorous light, and Angelina can make any movie worth seeing at least once. If you like seeing stuff blown up and shooting car chases, you'll probably love it.

After the movie we went to Barnes and Noble and scanned the sci-fi/fantasy section. I don't think she's actually tried more authors than me (if you don't count the Star Wars series authors) but we have a completely different list. It makes for interesting chatting... oh, and she told me about an alternate history novel by Silverburg where the gypsies of Earth are actually a race from another planet, I neeeed to read that. I am a nuevogypsy, after all.

Finally she took me home, since it was late and she had to get up early the next morning... But we started talking about more soul-ish things, and I asked her if she wanted to go sit on my bed and talk. I totally expected her to say no, since it was late and all, but she said yes, so we did. I mostly just listened and played with her hair, rubbed her back. She has a lot on her mind right now. I felt more comfortable with her than I've ever been -- it's amazing what letting go of expectations will do. (I need to remember that) I felt honored to be there for her. She's such an amazing person.

Kimberley and I went to see it...

(it's a great movie to kiss during...*lol*)

And I gave her the necklace...she seems to quite like it (especially for a girl who seldom wears jewelry) and she got quite a few compliments at church with it. One woman in our church asked where she got it. I was wondering if you had your website up.

(I took a few snapshots but will try to take a couple more and send them to you)

yep, rented it and liked it so much I watched it twice (even though Angelina had only a bit part). Why do you ask?

I kind of felt the same way about M/M Smith. That scene during their fight when Brad is kicking her? I had to hide my eyes. I mean, it's STILL haunting me. I hated that part. *shudder*

I did like the rest of the movie, even if the first 10 minutes or so were a little slow. it was funnier than i thought it would be, and that's always good.

belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
yeah, if it hadn't been for that beating-each-other-up scene I probably would have really enjoyed it, 'cause it did make me laugh, and wow Angelina looked amazing. I think she gets more and more beautiful as she gets older.

I didn't really like the movie, it doesn't represent my tastes as a movie goer but Angie looked good and I hate to admit it, but they had some definite chemistry going on. And she was funny. I like it when she's funny.

Mr. Smith: Chicken shit!!
Mrs. Smith: Pussy!!!

Ha ha ha ha.

heh heh -- it was very funny. And don't you think Angelina gets better looking with age?

ok... so, there was no OMG's when you dissed my beatles. so i feel free in asking... what is with angelina jolie? her acting range is somewhat limited, not only did she marry billy-bob thorton, but she was silly enough to tattoo his name on her, there is a great deal of speculation surrounding plastic surgery (which for me discounts her as a role model for young women), there's her whole "whatever" with her brother. she kinda freaks me out.

i'm wondering what you, dear belenen, who seem wise beyond your years, see in her as a role model? honestly. serious question.

*ducks, covers and prepares to run far and fast.*

I'm usually right at the front lines when it comes to pointing out plastic surgery, but I honestly don't know what Angelina could be accused of. As obvious from childhood pictures, her lips are real, and by laws of physics her boobs are real. Those are usually the most attacked body parts....

I don't think i'll be seeing Mr and Mrs Smith. I dunno. I'm nt one who's easily offended but something about that movie doesn't sit right with me. I can't even put my finger on what it is. I think it's the man and wife trying to kill each other thing?
garrulous
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
Yeah, I would never have seen it if it weren't an Angelina movie. It is disturbing in many ways. The first time I watched it I kept thinking how I'd feel if Ben did that to me (which he never would, any of it, but still).
invisibleglue ══╣╠══
I deperately want to see that movie. I probably won't like it, but I have to see everything Angelina!

And your icon, is that you on the right, because if so you look like Sarah Mclachlan in that pic!
garrulous
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
I know!

Now for right and left, I suck. And I can't figure out which right -- my right or the computer's right? But I'm the one closest to the 3, the other one is jedibubbles. ;-)

I had an idea for you, since your website address isn't easy to remember, you should have business cards. You could have your name and website on them and maybe even one example design and the background could be vivid violet. ;-) You could pass them out to anyone who complimented you when you're wearing your jewelry and you could send outy several with any jewelry you sold.
vivacious
belenen ══╣vivacious╠══
I'm a few steps ahead of you! Actually I ordered business cards and they just got here -- I don't have the money for custom-designed ones right now so I just got basic ones, very cheap (250 cards for $9, including shipping). I do plan to send them out with the jewelry too -- would you like me to mail you a few? ;-)

Thanks for taking such an interest, it means a lot to me. ;-)
