two years ago..

It was rainy just like today.. not the gray skies and thunder kind of rainy either. It was the sun shining and 3 rainbows in the sky kind of rainy day. That's the day that my best friend and I got married. It wasn't a bit thing as we were fresh out of high school with little money. We married in a house with a few family members present. It didn't start to rain until we were on our way to our hotel but there was a rainbow in every direction that you looked. It was very beautiful. Those kind of days are special and memorable. (My computer has since crashed so I dont have the actual photos I took of the rainbows.) I still love that sweet hairy man just as much if not more. I got the MOST beautiful card I have ever seen. I teared up as I read it. I love you Nate. =)

"Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go on an overnight drunk, and in 10 days I'm going to set out to find the shark that ate my friend and destroy it. Anyone who wants to tag along is more than welcome. " - Steve Zissou

We'll be saving our real celebrating for after pay day, but we sort of celebrated the evening with dinner and one of our all time favorite movies "The Life Aquatic". Any Wes Anderson movie that I watch always inspires me and gives me that nostalgic feeling that I love. Most of them feature Bill Murray, my all time favorite actor, so what more could you want? If you've never seen his films its a must! It's too tough to pick a favorite because they're all equally wonderful and offer a rad soundtrack. One thing I love so much about "The Life Aquatic" is the David Bowie covers by Seu Jorge. My husband and I are big Bowie fans to begin with, so this was a plus.

Royal: "He saved my life, you know. Thirty years ago. I was knifed at a bazaar in Calcutta, and he carried me to the hospital on his back."
Ari: "Who stabbed you?"
Royal: "He did. There was a price on my head, and he was a hired assassin. Stuck me in the gut with a shiv. "

The Royal Tennenbaums was the very first Anderson film and saw and it immediately hooked me so I have a very soft spot in my heart for that movie. It's ridiculously witty like most Anderson films, but also a little bit tragic. There are many times in this movie where I just laughed and thought to myself "WTF?". Like when Gweneth Paltrow's character runs away from home and returns with half of her finger missing. Plus anything with Luke Wilson in it I'm apt to like. =) Might I add, Luke Wilson's beard is epic in this movie. I also want their house. It's so beautiful. One of my favorite parts:

"I love you both but I'm going to have to mace you in the face." -Jack
"I wonder if the three of us would've been friends in real life. Not as brothers, but as people." -Jack

The Darjeeling Limited turned out to be absolutely phenomenal for me. The three main characters Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, and Adrien Brody (three more of my favorite actors) are brothers on a "spiritual quest" in India after a period of not speaking after their father's death. I may be too quick to call this my favorite, but it's really impossible for it NOT to be my favorite.

With their particular film aesthetic, each film is visual eye candy. Not to mention he's from Texas. =) Yay! The color scheme of all the films are captivating and even the fonts used for the titles and credits are so well thought out and cohesive. His most recent film is The Fantastic Mr. Fox which did NOT disappoint. It had all the usual characters and a few more. I'll be watching it with my kiddo ALL the time I'm sure. I particularly love how they say "cuss" instead of the actual cuss word. That's some funny cuss. He also directed and wrote Rushmore and Bottle Rocket a little bit earlier on in his career and both are great as well! He has a new film in the production according to IMBD, called My Best Friend. I'll be patiently waiting until then.

I wish I could live in a Wes Anderson film. =)

If you have any info about other movies of his let me know! I would LOVE to see them.
