random thoughts for monday february 28th, 2011

WELCOME TO MONDAY EVERYBODY….this is how most people feel about mondays….

 

today’s daily blog is sponsored by DISCOUNT VAC AND DAKOTA HOT TUBS, BOTH IN ABERDEEN…

 

1.  happy birthday wishes are going out to actor CHARLES DURNING who turns 88 years old today….CHARLES DURNING appeared in such movies as “THE STING, ” “DOG DAY AFTERNOON”, “THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS”, and “TOOTSIE”…..here’s CHARLES DURNING from years ago…

and here’s CHARLES DURNING today on his 88th birthday…

2.  one of the biggest suprises at last nights ACADEMY AWARDS SHOW, was when legendary actor KIRK DOUGLAS came out on stage…yes, he rambled a bit, but hey, he’s 93 years old…he can do what he wants….ha ha….KIRK DOUGLAS was a hearthrob years ago…

and here’s what he looks like today at 93………….

3.  well, the ACADEMY AWARDS are history for another year…last night was one of the rare times that i watched it from start to finish….ANNE HATHAWAY and JAMES FRANCO did an okay job emceeing the event…FRANCO appeared at times to not really care that he was there…

anyway, here are some of the big winners at the ACADEMY AWARDS SHOW last night….

i yelled out loud when “THE KING’S SPEECH” won for BEST PICTURE…

and from what i read, COLIN FIRTH was a shoe-in to win BEST ACTOR for “THE KING’S SPEECH”, and he did win…

NATALIE PORTMAN won the BEST ACTRESS award for “BLACK SWAN.”

actress MELISSA LEO won BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS for her portrayal in “THE FIGHTER.”  and then she said “the F-WORD” on tv…which was luckily censored…from what i hear, that the very first time that word was used at the show…

and actor CHRISTIAN BALE won BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR for his role in “THE FIGHTER.” he said during his speech that he wouldn’t use the “F-WORD”  because he’s used it enough in the past..obviously poking fun at his tired on the set of one of movies a couple of years back…

4.  we saw two movies over the weekend that i didn’t want to see, because i considered them RIPOFFS of other movies…and i was WRONG ON BOTH ACCOUNTS…

first of all, i didn’t plan to see “UNKNOWN” starring LIAM NEESON and former HECLA resident JANUARY JONES…i thought it looked like a ripoff of LIAM’S movie “TAKEN.”  wrong….

this is a really really good movie…it’s one of those movies that you think you have it figured out halfway thru and by the end, you’re wrong…totally enjoyable…

the other movie i hadn’t planned on watching was “DUE DATE” starring ROBERT DOWNEY JR. and ZACK GALIFIANAKIS…this movie totally looked like a ripoff of the STEVE MARTIN AND JOHN CANDY movie “PLANES TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES”…it kind of was the general theme of that movie, but it was different…THIS WAS HILARIOUS….ZACK and ROBERT completely played off each other perfectly…i belly laughed a few times….fun movie….

5.  JEANNIE AND I went to the theater to see the new JENNIFER ANISTON and ADAM SANDLER movie called “JUST GO WITH IT.” we had heard that it was very funny, and it was…it’s one of those movies that i’m glad i went to see, but i’ll probably never watch it again, and certainly won’t buy it…but i do recommend it if you want to have a few laughs and just enjoy yourself…

6.  speaking of movies, if you want to see the ACADEMY AWARD PICTURE OF THE YEAR “THE KING’S SPEECH” you’d better plan on doing it early this week in ABERDEEN…it’s showing at both CARMIKE CINEMA 9 THEATERS and THE CAPITOL THEATER…

“THE KING’S SPEECH” shows at CARMIKE thru thursday at the following times:  4:00pm and 7:00pm….

and it’s showing at THE CAPITOL THEATER thru thursday at 7:30 each night…

i HIGHLY recommend this movie…it’s excellent….

7.  over the next several years DUNKIN DONUTS plan to open over 500 stores in INDIA….in a related story, the UNITED STATES will also begin to outsource police officers….

8.  a store in LONDON is now selling ice cream made from breast milk…and a lot of people are pumped…

9.  HUGH HEFNER and CRYSTAL HARRIS are getting married in june…which makes sense because that’s when she’s out of school for summer break…

10.  WHAT AN IDIOT…CHARLIE SHEEN’S latest rant has caused t he cancellation of his hit tv show “TWO AND A HALF MEN.” that smoke you see in the air isn’t coming from his burning crack pipe…it’s coming from all the bridges that he has burned…

11.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

Three old men are at the doctor for a memory test.
    The doctor says to the first old man, “What is three times three?”
    “274” was his reply.
    The doctor worriedly says to the second man, “It’s your turn. What is three times three?”
    “Tuesday” replies the second man.
    The doctor sadly says to the third man, “Okay, your turn. What’s three times three”?
    “Nine” says the third man.
    “That’s great!” exclaims the doctor. “How did you get that?”
    “Jeez, Doc, it’s pretty simple,” says the third man. “I just subtracted 274 from Tuesday.”

HAVE A GREAT MONDAY EVERYBODY…
