Top Three...

Speaking of hot chicks, there has been a change to my top 3. I feel compelled to share her (and the rest of my list) with you in case you have the same taste as me. This is my top 3 hottest celebrities - though if you throw in personality and people I love, then the list gets too convoluted. Let me know if you agree with any of these.

3.) Emmanuelle Chirqui (Sloane from Entourage) was in this spot but as of yesterday has been bumped for Rosie Jones. I stumbled upon her while researching for some ads yesterday and it was quite possibly the best stumble upon ever. She's a British model and possibly the hottest one out there.

2.) Meagan Good whom you may remember as the girl in 50 Cent's '21 Questions,' or from that movie 'Biker Boyz.'She might not be the greatest actress but she's pretty good looking when she's doing it.

1.) Eva Mendes who everyone knows, has been my number 1 for a long time and I really don't see anyone stopping her anytime soon.

Anyways that's my top three, though looking at these pictures now, Rosie could very easily be number 1. Consider them all a tie for 1st depending on the day and mood. This is just in case someone says, "Hey, who are the three hottest chicks?" This is my answer.

Best Dressed: 2010 Emmys

So I have been terrible at blogging this month. Not much else doin these days except for school and that isn't terribly exciting or noteworthy. The Emmys were on this weekend, if you missed it you didn't really miss much. I turned it off around 930 after Mark Twain left because it was taking forever to get to the good stuff and it really wasn't good enough to wait around for. But there were some good lookin ladies on the red carpet and as usual, I have a top 3.

3. Dianna Agron - better known as Quinn

2. Jayma Mays - Another good looking girl from Glee - she's pretty much a dime.

1. Nina Dobrev - I've never heard of her before but let's get real - she's a 10.

Anyway, I'm out. Go big.

Looking Forward To...

Sorry to keep double posting, but these movies look really good and you probably haven't heard of them, so I thought I'd enlighten you and hopefully you can find out when/if they'll be coming to a theater near you.

Also this documentary looks incredible:

I'm out for reals this time. Go big.

The Reviews Are In...

As most of you know, I enjoy a good movie hop. I love to see movies, and as poor as I am, can only afford to see all the ones I'd like to if I movie hope to three or sometimes four movies. Well this weekend I was backed up. So I recruited a friend who will heretofore be known as Texas, to movie hop with me as he's done so a couple times before and has been the only one to show a desire to keep doing so with me, aside from Lemon. So I set a goal of breaking my record of four in a row and attempting five with mutterings of a 6th.

The day started out looking like I wouldn't movie hop at all. I woke up at 8:30 still drunk from the night before (Thursday night is the only night I go out - how can you pass up $1 bottles?) after only sleeping for less than 5 hours. I called Texas and asked him if he was still up for it. He mumbled a yes and I threw a bunch of food and water in my backpack and set off. After 13 hours of straight movie watching we had successfully done a 6-movie movie hop all for the low low price of $6. It was glorious. We even had Jesse Spano come meet us in the middle for three of those. Here's the breakdown:

10:05 - The Middle Men - Luke Wilson did a good job in a bad movie. A movie that was about the guys who invented internet porn with a Wilson starring should have been funny. It wasn't. Don't recommend even netflixing this.

12:20 - The Expendables - After years of waiting for this movie, I was not disappointed. The action was awesome, the one-liners were in full effect and Mickey Rourke actually put in some effort to act a little and it ended up being a successful action romp.

2:20 - Scott Pilgrim vs The World - Best movie I've seen in some time. It was awesome. The movie was hilarious, well acted, incredibly directed and pretty perfect overall. Edgar Wright knows his way around a graphic novel. I've only read a couple of the comics but this is exactly what I was hoping for.

4:45 - The Other Guys - Oh Adam McCay, I knew it would be hard to top Step Brothers, but this was a flop. There were some hilarious moments, and I didn't hate it, but if not for Middle Men, this movie would have easily been the worst of the day. Save your money and catch it on netflix in a few months for a lazy Saturday afternoon or to put on in the background.

6:45 - The Switch - Jason Bateman and the kid really stole the show and actually, I'm pretty sure that was the point. The movie became about them in what turned out to be a really good chick flick. Not the funniest movie ever, but it was definitely something I'd watch again.

9:05 - Get Low - If you haven't seen the preview for this, you should. It was the only indie we saw yesterday and it was really good. Great acting from Robert Duvall and Bill Murray was hilarious as usual. I pretty much laughed in every scene he was in. If you can find a theater near you that's playing this, watch it. Not a comedy but a really good story with a surprising number of laughs.

Anyway, I'm out. Go big.

I've only blogged once this month! That's crazy. Sorry, I've been busy. I have lots to talk about but not enough time to talk about it. I posted this on FB earlier today but since many of you aren't as avid on the book as I sadly am, I thought I'd post it here. I have many thoughts about this but KO pretty well sums up my feelings about the absurdity behind a lot of the backlash.

As always, go big or go home.

I'm out

Wedding Daze...

Next week starts a semi-marathon of weddings. I have 4 weddings in four weeks. That itself is unremarkable, but what's crazy is that two are over labor day weekend. I just booked my tickets and after getting over the sticker shock, I slowly accepted how tired I'm going to be after the weekend. Fly to San Jose on Thursday for Leadright's wedding on Friday. Leave at 6am on Saturday for Mark Twain's wedding on Sunday and then back in Chicago on Monday. It's going to be a long, drunk jetlagged weekend but I'm pretty sure it's going to be worth it.

In the future I think any of my friends that are getting married should just get married in Michigan or Chicago. It's much easier for me to get to. Thank you.

I'm out. Go big.
