Theater Releases 2/27/2009

Most excited about:

What is a Movie Producer?

Has anyone else ever wondered what the role is of a movie or tv producer? It seems to be a big deal, but we never seem to see a lot about them. Slate posted an explanation of what a producer is and after the Oscars, I thought it was really interesting!

Trailer: Funny People

It's Judd Apatow's new movie! I'm all about it! I love when Adam Sandler mixes humor with honesty and this seems like that. I also love Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann, Jason Schwartzman & Jonah Hill. I think it'll be awesome!

Victoria's Secret has Organic Beauty Products!

This is exciting!! Victoria's Secret has launched a new line of organic and 100% vegan beauty products! The collection will have lotions, body washes, lip butter and body scrubs in 3 scents plus a line of essentials: Energizing, Nourishing, Soothing.

I haven't bought Victoria's Secret beauty products in years because I got tired of the strong stinging scents, so I'll definitely pick up a few of these! I really like natural, organic scents - like Aveda and Arbonne.

So go pick up some Victoria's Secret organic beauty products!!!

New Moon: Official Title & Artwork

The movie for New Moon has now officially been given a title and some artwork to tide us over as we wait for more!

The title is: The Twilight Saga's New Moon

and the artwork is above.

I'm excited and nervous! This one doesn't have much Edward in it. It's mainly her & Jacob and that stinks for me. But I do love the part at the end with the Volturi!! It'll be awesome!!!

Ash Wednesday!

I hope everyone had an awesome Mardi Gras / Fat Tuesday!!

Today is the first day of Lent! Every year I like to give something up just to remember the season and what was done for me.

This year, I'm giving up chocolate again! Is anyone else giving anything up?

Quote for the Day

“I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken — and I’d rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived.”
-Margaret Mitchell
