Why I love Wes Anderson movies:

Because he has this amazing talent for creating a very lovely fishbowl, or maybe even a puppet theater, in which he places some very colorful eccentric characters and then lets us study them for 90 minutes.

I watched "Darjeeling Limited" last night and loved it every bit as much as The Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore. I'm starting to be able to trainspot his style, he has this little habit of using open doorways as a frame so we can sort of spy on the action going on in the next room without actually being there. Love his use of color, and of course his taste in music. Hoping that these movies somehow spawn a whole new generation of Kinks fans.

Not to mention, I adore Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman.

This movie made me want to go for a long train ride through India. I am thinking that is some place I would like to travel through someday.

In other news:

Last weekend was nice, low key, never made it to karaoke but we did go to my absolute FAVORITE place for beer and really bad-for-you food - Sunset Bar & Grill in Allston. Drank yummy Affligem blonde ale and a Ephemere from Unibroue. Ate some tasty meat-free nachos and a huge turkey burger with some yummy curly fries.

Still need to go out and do some serious karaoke some night soon.

Boyfriend bought a new zoom zoom. 1994 Suzuki Katana 750. Got it dirt cheap from some guy on craigslist - the thing only has 6K miles on it. Needless to say he's been bouncing around the house like a little kid for the past few days. I'm happy because it means we're saving money on gas going to work this summer.

I'm going sofa shopping Very Soon Now.

My 10 year old Ikea special needs to go to the dumpster, and soon.
