Movie Review: The Simpsons Movie

So, I finally got off my butt and saw the Simpsons Movie ( yes, I know I’m almost a year late! ), but I have to say that I had high expectations of the film and it more than surpassed them!

I’ve been a big fan of Groening’s work, especially The Simpsons and Futurama, and because I’ve been a die-hard Simpsons fan ever since the show premiered I thought I had a pretty good handle on what they were capable of. I assumed it would be one film-length episode of The Simpsons and, while it was basically the same, they pulled out all of the stops for this one!

The animation was fabulous, the detail is just gorgeous, and they used their budget to great effect. The story is actually very moving in addition to being hilarious, and they pay give us oldies something to cheer about with callbacks to some of the oldest and most beloved Simpsons gas, such as jumping The Springfield Gorge and “Release The Hounds”.

Overall, the film was far better than I expected, it was worth th eir time and effort and definately worth the price of the DVD which I will be ordering as soon as I get my bills paid assuming I’ve got leftover. Go rent it, damn it! Lol.

 

Online Car Rental?

Argh, I’m annoyed! I’m annoyed that there’s no Advantage car rental in town. I’ve got a *whole lot* of stupid rural countryside here, no sidewalks and either flooding, baking sun or freezing rain/snow at any given time to walk through. Yes, I end up having to walk everywhere, and it’s murder!

I so want to be able to rent a car from Advantage.com, I didn’t even know you could do that online! The site’s really nicely designed, takes a bit of time to load but it’s easy to navigate and find what you’re looking for. If I’ve read this right, they’ll even pick you up! If you get time, check out their search feature – we’re definately living in a brand new era if you can rent cars online!

June’s Around the Corner

Well, it’s almost Wimbledon time again now that June’s creeping up the trail and, to be one hundred and fifty percent honest I’m really only looking forward to the U.S. Open. I’ve tried watching the French Open and, let me tell you, I just can’t get into it – maybe it’s just that France depresses me ( it’s the postion of the sun and how it effects the color of natural light, I know it is ), and the games should be exciting but I end up just going, “Gah!” and changing the channel.

I’d love to get my hands on some Wimbledon tournament tickets, though even if I did I know I couldn’t go – I don’t even have transportation to the Walmart that’s twenty five miles away in the next town, so how am I going to get to San Diego, CA? But I’d love a chance to go, how often do you get to see someone like Justine Henin play at the top of her game? Never, that’s how often. It would be so cool to get to see her, or Serena who’s my absolute fave – I haven’t been keeping up with it this last two years, though.

So, basically, now I’ll just be bellyaching over it forever and ever. Granted, though, Tennis really isn’t my sport though I do enjoy it. I’m really a baseball fan at heart – buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack!

Well, more freebie news! Free iPhones are now available even free-er because anyone who signs up under you in May and greens will get you a cash out! Yes, you only need ONE referral for everything from Apple iPhones, LG Chocolates, paypal cash and laptops! Check it out!

As it turns out, you can actually find people who will PAY YOU TO GREEN ON FREEBIE SITES! I’ve just been paid $20 up front to green on a site, and as soon as I green I get another $20 – and it’s a gift card site so I can actually do this, make money then be halfway to getting even MORE money without spending a penny – how cool!

Help Selling Online

It’s too bad I don’t have an iSold It store near by – I live in the middle of Buttcrack, Missouri and there’s literally only one grocery store in town and it’s six miles from here! And the town has GROWN since we moved here, lol.

So, anyway, I’be been wanting to sell my Peir One Imports Chinese-style lantern, or I’ve been thinking about it, at least, and I’ve basically decided against doing so because it’s so heavy, I wouldn’t know about the shipping and handeling so I don’t know what to charge for the shipping, and worst of all I wouldn’t have the time to list it myself and try to promote it, and these are all things that iSold It can do for me.

It’s just easier, you know? I’ve sold a lot on eBay, but I just don’t want to go through the hassle of selling something that weighs something like 20 pounds and involves glass! I’d rather have someone take care of it for me, and actually iSold It sounds better and better all the time but alas, I’m not lucky enough to live near enough to an iSold It for it to be at all possible for me to try them out – if you try them, please let me know how they work! I have a feeling I’d definately recommend it to anyone, because I know how hard it is to sell on eBay without any help.

Stupid Blockbuster!

MAD. I just signed up for blockbuster’s “free trial” today, and the bastages charged me $10! Isn’t a Free Trial supposed to be “free”!?

Stupid Blockbuster! So far I’ve noticed that their rates are higher than Netflix, the selection’s lax, the support is slow and, my favorite, the previously viewed DVDs for sale are almost twice what they are at netflix – why did I sign up for this?

Stomach Ouchies

Ugh, I hate feeling sick and it seems like more and more I’m just sick all the time, and queasy and stomach rumbly. I feel like I’m gonna hurl, actually, and of course there’s someone using the john right now so I get to sit out here waiting for them to move their butt’s already so I can fix this..shiz.

I need to get my hands on something do deal with this stomach issue, I don’t know what though. Maybe some acidophilys milk or something, I don’t know. All I know is I’ve got to do *something* before I go freaking crazypants, even my teeth are suffering from the constant upchucking and I know something’s seriously wrong with me but I can’t do anything about it. Pewwww.

Gorgeous Shoes

Ahhh, kawaii! Now I have to have Mooz! Okay, Mooz are shoes, lol. Stupid Inifinity Shoes, why must you tempt me with your gorgemous minnetonka boots and tsubo shoes? I’m a big maryjane fan but I know Laota would just go nutso for the fabulous Foxy Mama’s in black, she’s a t-strap fanatic and has been for far over a decade. Plus t-straps are so adorable, and you can go cutesy, classy or rocker chick with them – in fact, I’ve got a pair of Lucky 13’s with a four inch heel and double t-strap maryjane going on that I’ve only ever worn once, but I just absolutely adore them.

The sheer variety of shoes over at Infinity Shoes is amazing, some of these shoes are ‘outdated chic’ which means they have a great, edgy and retro look to them that I just adore, and many are shoes I’ve loved and haven’t been able to find for sale since I live in the middle of nowhere. The seychelles shoes are my favorite, I could live on the Bachelorette’s without food or water for the rest of my natural born life, lmao. I’m in love with the Mooz, though, most of all – I’ve decided I can’t live without them to the point where I think I may actually fight you for them. :P

Discounted Luxury Watches

I’m basically poor – dirt poor, actually – and, to be perfectly and completely honest I’ve never really been able to afford designer anything. No brand new designer sunglasses, no luxury watches, or even slighly expensive shoes ( I refuse to pay $20 or more for shoes that aren’t Onitsuka Tigers! ), and I’ve always kind of envied the people who could afford $800 or more for a watch, especially gorgeous Concord watches that you see over at TheWatchery.

Personally, I could never afford even the most discounted watch, but TheWatchery’s discounts are marked down by literally hundreds of dollars, and while just anyone can’t afford them if you’re in the market for, say, a Corum Bubble then this is your place. In fact, I think the Corum Bubble is probably my favorite watch on the site, which has a huge selection of watches, many as much as 80% off of retail prices which is nice considering I don’t plan on spending $3000 for a watch anytime soon, lol. The best part is that you get a free watch with *almost* every purchase, and you can’t beat free – you’re basically getting two brand new luxury watches for less than half the price of one!
