Instagram Roundup #29

by Jamie Sanford on February 27, 2013

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups! Saw baby Trent Reznor in Entertainment Weekly. Nice precursor to finding out that Nine Inch Nails will be BACK on tour this year. Say goodbye to all of my money. The loss of the stickers on my bumper made me mourn the eventual loss of the ones on my laptop, so I took a picture. I have already requested replacement GB and Mind The Gap stickers from my mom and nana, since they are going to England soon. Sparkly Oscars. I am so happy that Argo won for Best Picture and that Ben got to deliver what was essentially his Best Director speech. If only I could look this awesome when falling. I am totally in love with her after her Oscar appearance, she is REAL and I love it. Saw this amongst the design books in the office. I can’t decide if this is heinously sexist or not. Product love – I’ve been using these Detoxifying Cleansing Towelettes from CVS for a while for makeup removal, but I have not talked about them. They are great! Plus they are often on sale for BOGO 50% off. Plus they count towards your beauty purchase total at CVS, which eventually amounts to CVS bucks. See you next week!

Instagram Roundup #23

by Jamie Sanford on January 16, 2013

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

Back to Wednesdays.

Bored in the cab means self-portraits.

Also, pictures out the window.

In the depths of 41 Madison.

I got to fill our lobby display since I removed all of the other items. I’ve never had that experience before, it was fun to do something tactile.

I think this Jane lipstick might be on its last legs. I love it though.

I will spend the next few months being disappointed in every grocery store that isn’t Publix.

What happened to Be Mine?

I’ve been sort of in love with Ben Affleck since the 90s when I saw Chasing Amy – then even more so when I found out that was him on Voyage of the Mimi. I am thrilled that he was recognized at the Golden Globes. The Oscars are bullshit for not nominating him.

I received a Kat Von D lipstick set for Christmas from Nan. I have not been one for a strong lip, ever, but I went for the color called “Underage Red” the other day and LOVED it. Bold lips in 2013! (Plus, my glasses are making an appearance too! I’m living on the edge.)

Instagram Roundup #15

by Jamie Sanford on November 14, 2012

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

Catching up on these posts. Almost ready to get back to only posting these on Wednesday.

Fall is my favorite time of year to take pictures. I snapped this outside of my office. This was before the hurricane and then the nor’easter.

We watched a baby giraffe birth live online. The giraffe mom looked confused at first, and we were worried too since the baby looked like it might not be alive.

It all turned out OK.

Fortune.

Another fall picture, before the storms.

I did black nails with coppery glitter I found at a shady beauty store. It was the stinkiest polish ever. Results were pretty though.

In a bit of foreshadowing, I found this picture of me in a scrapbook I was looking at during the power outage. I’m wearing Ye Olde garb because I was going to be on public access to talk about Heritage Park. I then met these 2 drag queens who had a public access show, and I can’t remember their names, although they start with R.

In my baby book, which I also looked at while having no power, I found Cabbage Patch Kids party hats and napkins from one of my birthday parties.

Really hoping that this happens for Ben. I still need to see Argo.

Christmas porn!

Even though I hadn’t worked for the past 6 business days, I still took my scheduled vacation day on Election Day. We went to the Tick Tock Diner for brunch.

I know this isn’t surprising to anyone.

Congratulations Mr. President!

Dogma (100 Films in 2011)

by Jamie Sanford on March 31, 2011

22. Dogma (Not available to stream on Netflix Instant Watch)

Here’s the Dogma trailer.

[youtube 20CRw3XdETA]

Continuing our trip through the Kevin Smith View Askewniverse films, Dogma centers around 2 angels, Bartleby (Ben Affleck) and Loki (Matt Damon) who have been banished to live on Earth for eternity.  They are introduced to an opportunity to get back into Heaven, and so begin a journey to get to a church in New Jersey.

Loki and Bartleby are being pursued by the 13th Apostle (Chris Rock), the last living relative of Jesus Christ: Bethany (Linda Fiorentino), and the so-called “prophets,” Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith).  This crack team is determined to stop Loki and Bartleby from going back to heaven and therefore unmaking existence.

There are other fun performances from the supporting players in this movie.  Alan Rickman as Metatron, the first heavenly being that visits Bethany, the Last Scion.

Salma Hayek also appears as Serendipity, a muse come to earth and now stripping for a living.

There was a lot of controversy when this movie came out, and watching it 12 years later, I still don’t get it.  The movie as really funny moments, and great dramatic moments.  I don’t find it as re-watchable as the other movies in the View Askewniverse, but I still like it a lot.  It’s definitely worth a watch.

Dogma is available on DVD from Amazon for $7.99.

Chasing Amy (100 Films in 2011)

by Jamie Sanford on March 29, 2011

22. Chasing Amy (Not available to stream on Netflix Instant Watch)

Here’s the trailer for Chasing Amy.

[youtube PR4rVGiKC9g]

Chasing Amy is the 3rd in Kevin Smith‘s View Askewniverse pictures, and was the follow-up to Mallrats which was less than super successful in the theatrical release. Once again, we’re presented with 2 main male characters Holden (Ben Affleck) and Banky (Jason Lee) –

– although the movie becomes more focused later on the relationship between Holden and Alyssa (Joey Lauren Adams).

Holden and Alyssa meet each other at a comic book convention, as both write their own comics and have a mutual friend in Hooper X.   They hit it off the first night that they meet, and during their second outing, Holden discovers that Alyssa is a lesbian and their attraction to each other is not as he had imagined.  They become friends and things progress beyond that, other information comes to light and drama ensues from there.

While people expect comedy from Kevin Smith movies, this movie has a few heavy moments and a lot of heart.  I have laughed and cried during multiple viewings of Chasing Amy.

Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) also appear in the movie, and while they have a short appearance, Silent Bob drops knowledge that moves the story along well.

Dwight Ewell also gives a great performance in this film as comic book author Hooper X.

The Chasing Amy Criterion Collection DVD is available from Amazon for $9.69.
