Gratitude Cafe Tour!

Jason Mraz announced the dates for the second leg of his gratitude cafe tour recently! While I complained that Vancouver wasn’t on his original list, it’s up there on the second! And the best part? John got me tickets for my birthday! Eeeeeeee! So excited! Does this count as a mini honeymoon? A’s rolling his eyes at me…


Jason Mraz, how could you!

Jason Mraz will start his new tour, the “Gratitude Café Tour,” in support of his third album, We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things., which went platinum last year, and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.

Jason Mraz Announces Full Dates for New Tour

Even though I’ll be in the city on that day, I can’t even attend. Sad face!! Would it be wrong to blame A on this?

Movies I’ve Watched Lately

I’ll update on my living situation and wedding planning situation in another post. Because if I don’t write this up, I’m going to forget.

  • Things We Lost in the Fire: Starring Halle Berry, Benecio Del Toro and David Duchovny. I was all excited to see a movie with David Duchovny in it, but was pretty sad when we started watching it and I found out it has nothing to do with him being a mysterious FBI agent who investigates bizarre phenomenons, and that he was in the movie for a combined total of like, 20 minutes. But that’s okay, because the story itself is pretty amazing. It’s about two very opposite people who bond to help each other cope through difficult times in their life.
  • The Darjeeling Express: Starring Owen Wilson & Adrian Brody. Directed by Wes Anderson, this movie is actually pretty funny and heartwarming. It follows three brothers who take a spiritual trip to India, and their interactions with each other. I really liked this movie, I especially liked Adrian Brody’s character who has a tendency to take personal objects from his family members.
  • Beowulf: I finally got around to watching this movie, and while it’s an pretty cool Norse myth, it was pretty hilarious with the awaesomeness of Beowulf and his amazing conquers. Another selling point of the movie would probably be Angelina Jolie’s nekkidness with gold liquid dripping off her CG body, and (for some bizarre unexplained reason) the gold solid spurs coming out from her heel which act as stiletto heels.
  • Into the Wild: Based on a real life story, the movie follows a young boy who, right after graduating from highschool, donates all his life savings and attempts to live his life away from all the prejudices and material needs of today’s society. His goal: travel to Alaska with no real plan as to how to get there or what to do when he gets there. While it’s an interesting and thought-provoking story, it makes me sad to know there are people who refuse the help from anyone because of how they perceive the world today.
  • Lars and the Real Girl: Starring Ryan Gosling. This movie got some good reviews, and it’s actually pretty interesting. It’s about Ryan Gosling being unable to interact with women, and therefore purchases an adult pleasure doll to be his new girlfriend. It’s pretty heartwarming with some great funny bits.
  • Run Fat Boy Run: Starring Simon Pegg of Hot Fuzz fame. I’m so happy A suggested this movie, especially since it’s about a complete loser who tries to prove himself to his family, friends, and ex-girlfriend by proclaiming he’ll run in the Nike River Run, a marathon that happens in London, 3 weeks before the event. Hilarity ensues.
  • Sweeney Todd (The Demon Barber of Fleet Street): Starring Johnny Depp. This made the cracked.com’s 5 ways Hollywood Tricks you into seeing bad movies. And while I laughed at the list, I do sort of agree. It was a very different movie, but not different from what I’d expect from Tim Burton. Still, it made for an interesting story, and everyone likes Johnny Depp.
  • Across the Universe: Musical based on Beatles songs. They’re all very catchy, but I still liked Hairspray more. Still, this movie had some great scenes, like “I Want You”, and “Let it Be”. The story is pretty good, but I kinda wished the ending was better.
  • He Was a Quiet Man: Starring Christian Slater. Despite the good reviews, A and I were a little hesitant on this movie because A had no idea who Christian Slater was and I thought he was pretty much out of the movie industry by now. It’s an interesting movie about the mundane life of office work, but very very far from the humourous story was portrayed by Office Space.

Honestly, I’ve been trying to find myself a place to live. But it’s difficult, and I’m pretty discouraged. Hopefully I’ll have some good news by March 1st. Because that’s when I have to move by. :(
