Sugar Jones

I used to be a big reality TV show fan. My favourite was probably Big Brother (though if Murder in Small Town X had more seasons, that would have definitely been it), and I was pretty into Survivor for the first three seasons. One show I don’t remember too much about, but that I was clearly a big fan of, was the Canadian version of Popstars. It was one of those American IdolX FactorMaking the Band type shows. The band that came out of the first season was called Sugar Jones.

I’m writing about this now because I’ve only just realized Sugar Jones is pretty similar to The Monkees.

Up (2009)

Spoilers ahead
For Toy Story 3 too

This was on the movie roulette list because I’d heard it was really sad. This is one of those things that makes people say stuff like “if this doesn’t make you cry, you’re not human”. Well, I forgot I was a Vulcan, so… sorry. I don’t want to sound like I’m bragging, because I hate when people brag about being ignorant of something or not feeling anything about something. Movies make me cry all the time. Toy Story 3, with a bunch of inanimate objects almost dying, made me cry. Up, with a human actually dying, did not.

Bringing Up Baby (1938)

This was a cheat movie roulette. My mom and I wanted to watch a movie, so we skipped through a couple (Escape from Alcatraz, which I think is a movie the whole family wanted to see; Burglar, which I didn’t think, when my mom said she wanted to watch a movie, was what she had in mind; and I believe Little Shop of Horrors, which my mom had already seen) and finally settled on Bringing Up Baby.

The scene where Katharine Hepburn’s character first appeared, the bit with the golfing and the shenanigans with the car, seemed so very familiar to me, and I wondered if I had seen this movie before.
