So, I went with my friend Vickey to see Rock of Ages, and while there were mixed reviews from various friends of mine, I have to say that I laughed quite a bit through it. Man, did it remind me of growing up in the 80′s! Plus, corny as it may be, I love musicals. Across the Universe is still my favorite, but I really enjoyed this one too.
The main female character was from Tulsa, Oklahoma..where I live now, and I must say that she did us proud. The main male character looked like he was related to Matthew McConaughey…Vickey couldn’t see the resemblance, but as a devout Matthew McConaughey fan, I’m sure I’m right, and she was just not trying hard enough.
My favorite thing about the movie though, was simply the music. Say whatever you want, but there was something magical about music back in the ’80′s, even if it isn’t cool to admit it these days. What wasn’t cool about the ’80′s, though, was how we dressed. Seriously, what were we thinking?? Thank God I was too poor to afford half of the weirdo stuff people were wearing back then….But, I did have the enormous hair… On rainy days, I still do…
All in all, I’ve had the best couple of days I’ve had in months, and I am enjoying the peace I’ve been feeling lately. I started my book, and it is actually coming a long smoothly. I plan to get back into my writing schedule again tomorrow. I’ve missed all of you!
