25th-May-2009 11:57 pm - Toast to Glee on TV
coffee
Yay for being home at last! After a long week of car rides... from the bay, to the valley, to the other valley (LA) and back to the first valley. I think I've put in enough hours in the car to last me a few months. Needless to say, it's good to be home in my own bed. Anyway, the real point of this post is to talk about my latest tv love. last week i watched the first episode of "Glee" on Fox and i think we're gonna have good time together. it's like highschool musical for those of us who are too old to admit we enjoyed the first one.



So maybe I'm no longer twelve and have no business mooning over zac effron, I can still enjoy a good sing along on prime time. At least this time they're using real songs :)
Under the fake cut is my quick toast to glee and it's cast, clickyclicky!

THE CAST THIS WAY :)Collapse )

Finally a new Toast! This has been one hell of a grueling semester and hopefully I pass all of the the necessary courses. Since I've been so unfaithful to my weeking toasts, I've put together three which will hopefully make up for that somewhat. The toasts for today are paying respects to:
-Motion City Soundtrack
-All Time Low
-Noah and the Whale

The first two have been with me for some time now, the last is the most recent addition to my music library. I love Motion because they're lyrics are worth listening to, which is a rare compliment nowadays I'm afraid. Also, the vocals are entertaining and the guitar solos are worth listening to. All Time Low has been a favorite of mine ever since I saw them in concert with Boys Like Girls and We the Kings at Warfield. Great concert, and All Time Low won my heart with both talent and charisma (they are HOTT). Noah and the Whale is a favorite of mine mostly based on charm. They're quirky and interesting and a little strange which I appreciate. 5 Years Time is super cute and I even went as far as to learn the chords for the uke so I could sing it. :)
Okay, enough words, here are my fave songs:







P.S. Yay Finals are done, let the (short) summer commense! Time for some fun in the sun, I think :)
26th-Mar-2009 10:43 am - Spring Break Fail
So among other things that fail in my life...spring break.

I had three glorious days of nothingness, but now I'm doing the catch-up-marathon. With all the other sh*t I have to do after I get back to the UC my, personal time has been taken over by the haunts of my pre-midterm evils and to-dos. The real question is, when will she catch a REAL break. Sorry, no toasts/any other kine amusement (tho I do have some things courtesy of my broforlife holly). Soon I hope to share my joys again.
XOXO

So I still fail at doing my toast for the last two weeks, but in the meantime...I was looking for music on myspace (i know, fail) and I stumbled upon this piece of work


Oh, Nick. You need to get yourself. Seriously dude, you do the same kinds of movies all the time now. I mean, I loved you in Family Man and I guess I enjoyed National Treasure (I not II because II was pathetic...more on that later). But DUDE, why do you play the same role all the time? And what was up with Ghost Rider? Ouch. Love that face on the Knowing poster though, hilarious.

I miss having a life. Me and my life were best buds, then responsibility stepped in. Now I feel like we've drifted apart. And what hurts most is that from here, I can still see my life, not so far off, wading about in the butterscotch of childhood and summertime. Meanwhile I'm kicking with aching muscles to stay a float.

Tell me why I'm doing this again?


P.S. TTMR will be up soon (tonight) if I get a chance.

So, I ran out of clean spoons today. Which normally isn't a problem, except I wanted to make hot cocoa. Solution: use a knife. I even one-upped myself and used a plastic knife I got from a take-out place.

The Evidence.


And because I can, I'm going to lie about the music I'm listening to. Because it's like

"A traffic jam when youre already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
Its like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
Its meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isnt it ironic... dont you think?
A little too ironic... and yeah I really do think..."

And yes, I use comtrex, I was sick last week. I don't really like Peet's Coffee, I needed to spend meal points last year and that cup was all that was left. And the Maui hat is just for show, I actually cannot wear hats unless I want to look like a total dufus (you already are one, zing).

Another week! I'm toasting RaRaRiot this week. I love them, period. I heart their vocals and the arrangements, great lyrics. Not to mention that they have a nice mix of guys and girls which adds alot creatively. PS love their look.


Also, a quick Toast to Youtube.
Some fun clips






I never get tired of the first clip, it's such an awesome concept and the execution is perfect in my opinnion.
And yes, I do love the Little Mermaid. In fact, I love all things Disney. I can't wait for a chance to see this on Broadway. The actress who plays Ariel,Sierra Boggess, does a fantastic job. :)

But if she doesn't work out... there's always Nick Pitera


LOLZ :D

Kind of a quick entry today. But still, one of my favorite bands.

Photobucket

I heart these guys, their sound is not so much pop/rock/indie it's sorta different so I can't really describe. Just know that I love them and that's reason enough. P.S. they're pretty frinkin cute too.

EVERYBODY ELSE! :) forgive my lame artwork this week. i'll try harder next time.
1st-Feb-2009 12:17 am - Nick & Norah's

Just finished watching N&NIP for the second time, and I loved it twice(2x). The tracks in that movie make me smile to no end and Michael Cera + Kat Dennings = match made in heaven. I mean, i'm a Juno fan, but the characters in NNIP are too perfect for words. I could live in that world. thatisallgoodnight.
