Summer Sunshine

Only a small selection of my summery songs this year.. :)

Best I Ever Had by Drake

Well, it’s not exactly suited for summer, but it’s sort of about being in love and all that silly business so that’s summery. It’s cute when it comes on the radio in the car and you sing it to your beau and vice versa.

Electropop by Jupiter Rising

Just try playing it in the car, loud, with the windows wide open on your way to a night out, and you’ll see why it’s summer.


Grind by Down With Webster

Again, makes me want to dance, sing, laugh, smile, and fall in love. Sounds like summer to me.

Macbook Pro

Something keeping me happy recently: my brand new Macbook Pro. 13 inches of beautiful, glossy glassy crystal clear screen, a trackpad so smooth its ridiculous, a keyboard that feels delicious on my fingers and lights up my world, smooth finish, amazing technology, quick on all programs and startup. It’s just one little box of wonderful.

Here’s what I love:

1. The Screen: as I mentioned, it is a gorgeous display, made of glass and super clear and detailed. It’s sharp.

2. The Technology: Mac is wonderful, and I already knew this. But it’s something special to be able to open your computer and have it start up in one minute with your preferences locked in, to have your computer so easy to use and set up and open right out of the box as beautiful as ever. I love being able to personalize my computer 100%. I’ve had it one day and it’s almost exactly as I want it. Everything is so easy to establish. Plus it’s super quick. Definitely a powerful machine.

3. The Keyboard: bouncy, yummy on the fingers, delicious. They’re not kidding when they say on the website that your fingers will like typing on it. No problems yet with this full keyboard, even with a keyboard cover on it it types beautifully and I forget about the cover entirely. I do think the backlight comes on a little bit quickly when not needed, but you can turn it down or off whenever you want.

4. The Gorgeous: the little aspects of the computer that make it so gorgeous. For example, being the administrator and downloading whatsoever I love, uber quick downloads, lightening fast everything, easyness of setting up folders, copying pictures, starting up and using programs, picking and choosing, personalizing the trackpad to change from actually clicking the trackpad to tapping instead..everything is gorgeous.

Originally, I had intended to talk about what I dislike..but there’s not much and I couldn’t be bothered. The only problems I’ve had are with my home wireless internet connection and my Windows Home software that I installed. Also I couldn’t register my AppleCare yesterday, but I’m going to try again today.

All in all: I could not be happier. It is so beautiful, I am in love. I love the mobility, the beauty of the machine, everything. It is lovely. :)

Soft Drinks and Aisle Seats

Yes, I am one of those. One of those people you absolutely cannot stand. I talk loudly. I gasp. I exclaim! I use exclamation points in my speech. Sometimes I sing along to the songs they play. And I’m also the obnoxious one crawling over your legs with potentially the worst timing ever because I have to pee.

Yes. I am the Movie Monster. You hate me. I accept this. For future reference, I do actually try to tone it down and I have wonderful loving friends and¬†a socially conscious boyfriend who attempt to quiet me. And in all seriousness I’m not THAT bad. Honest.

However, for those other self-unconfessed Movie Monsters, I have a brand-spankin’-new tool for us to use. It is called..drunmroll please…

RunPee.Com

Yes. That’s right. RunPee.Com. It appears to be a fantastic resource for Movie Monsters such as myself, to avoid all of those potentially awkward moments. You know the ones. Sitting in your seat uncomfortably, looking around frantically¬†and sussing out the path of least resistance to the door, not paying attention to the screen as you attempt to determine if what that just passed was very important or just mildly important and the big important stuff is coming up as soon as you’re out of the theatre. Nobody wants to come back to their seat and have their best friend tell them they just missed the coolest part.

Cue RUNPEE.COM. Although a brand new and not so comprehensive, it does list all current movies in theatres. There is no search bar, but there is a function to view movies alphabetically, by release date, etc. When I clicked on two movies I had already seen (17Again and Star Trek), it gave me the exact time I should go RunPee, and then in a box below the timestamp, it has jibberish with a button that says ‘unscramble’. This is obviously for spoilers. If you don’t care (and you shouldn’t, because you don’t really know the characters names yet or what the little tidbit is talking about so it would be okay to see the spoiler…) and although I could not really remember the exact moment of the movie the site is talking about, I guess the tool is more for people who HAVEN’T seen the movie yet rather than people who have.

All in all, I will definitely be using this tool in future. It is a hilariously useful and ingenious tool..you miss the dull parts, get to relieve yourself, and get back right before the big fight (or sex) scene.

Hooray!

Love, S.

Tomeme a las peliculas..

In case I haven’t previously blogged about it, you should know I am a SUCKER for movie trailers.
They are better than the movies for me sometimes. Yes, some give away practically everything, but ALL are good and ALL suck me in. But I guess that’s their purpose, to make you want to watch the movie. Anyways there are several movies that I am mucho excited to see and I thought I’d share them.

What a sweet looking movie. You should definitely check out the trailer, linked above. I don’t want to give it away but it seems like it has beautiful photography, it’s a love story, and plus plus plus Hugh Dancy is ADORABLE. It looks like the kind of movie that will give me that happysad feeling that I love so much.

First Off: I LOVE RACHEL WEISZ. I love her. Adore. I absolutely adore her. My favourite movie of all time happens to be The Mummy..starring her. Therefore I am so excited to see her in this movie: she has a whole montage of hobbies that her character has to learn and she also had to learn them all. I like Mark Ruffalo, not love, and I like Adrien Brody. And that other girl looks fierce! Anyways it’s about these brothers that plan bank heists and for their last one ever they decide to dupe a very rich lady: Rachel. However, chaos ensues and Adrien and Rachel fall in love. Typical, but it looks beautiful. And funny. And filmed in some amazing locations. Check out the trailer here.

I also adore Johnny Depp. I think that he is a phenomenal actor, and that his movies rock in general. This one doesn’t look like any exception. 1930’s style, amazing costumes/set/everything. Check out the trailer by clicking above. Looks fantastic!

And..this one shouldn’t even be counted really, but it counts.

I am so excited for the Harry Potter movies, always. No exceptions, nothing. There are those who love the movies and hate the books. There are those that love the books and hate the movies. There are those who hate both (although they should probably be committed). I am none of these. I love both. Duh. The movies are amazing and I have no idea what anyone is talking about when they say they don’t like them. BAH HUMBUG TO YOU TOO.

Love, s.
