Painting a Garden State

Real quick... painting a house sucks. No matter as much fun as it "can be" and how good it looks when it's done, the whole process of it can really be a pain in the butt sometimes. From the taping, to brushing, spilling paint, to cleaning up, washing tools, to making a mess, removing tape, to noticing bleeding, having it dry and noticing missed spots, to having to go through the whole process of a second coat by doing it all over again... it just sucks.

I'm thinking of hiring a professional to come in and finish it, but I don't really have the money to do that. Oh, well. It'll all get done EVENTUALLY.

On a lighter note, if you've never seen the movie "Garden State", you're really missing out. Go buy it, or put it in your Netflix queue, or order it On Demand, or pick it up at Blockbuster (if anybody even does that anymore). It is my favorite movie of all time, hands down, even though I honestly couldn't tell you all the reasons why. Directed by and starring Zach Braff (of "Scrubs" fame), it has a remarkable soundtrack and is one of those films that will always make you think and feel better, no matter your mood. No, I'm not from New Jersey, but can certainly relate to how Zach's character tries escaping his small town there in an effort to find himself out in the real world.

Elissa (my friend from high school - love ya, girl!) gave it to me for my 19th birthday and I absolutely loved it. I'm not even much of a movie person, but this is one of those films I can't live without. Although I don't watch it all that often, it usually gets brought out after I've had a bad day or am just in "one of those moods".

Wanna watch it with me? I'm game, just let me know when. In the meantime, enjoy the film's soundtrack that I've posted, which you can shuffle through on the right.
