He doesn't read this blog, but I want to thank my friend Joe Willis all the same.
When we lived together in Cedar City, about 4 years ago, he was addicted to Amélie, a French movie he watched almost constantly once it came out on DVD. He kept telling me that I should see this movie; that it was wonderful.
Of course, this is the same Joe that saw Napoleon Dynamite 13 times in the theater. And I didn't like that movie. At all. So I never got around to watching Amélie.
On a whim, because I'm stressed about money, and when I'm stressed about money I tend to make more impulse purchases, I bought Amélie from Best Buy.
I just finished watching it. Amélie is amazing! Such a great film! And in French, which I need to practice listening to anyway.
This movie made me believe in dreaming and falling in love again. I feel like I can hope to dream and fall in love. It's a nice feeling.
Behold, The Iron Fist...Yeah, the white guy.
