The Avett Brothers was my main artist this week, as this was the week I was up by 6AM five days that week to train and learn how to bake the bread rolls for the sub shop and they're such easy listening and a great way to wake up. Also, 'Best of Bootie 2012'was released so I started getting back into the whole mash up kinda thing, as well as re-discovering Au Revoire Simone and the cold weather found myself rediscovering The Postal Service and OneRepublic. OneRepublic also finally anounced a release date for their third studio album 'Native' at the end of March and released the offical first single off of it after performing it on NYE - 'If I Lose Myself'.
What I Watched
So as you may or may not have learned from my past movie critiques, I have a fondness for anything Judd Apatow - a lot of times they're funny with a dash of harsh reality/ a reality check that really speak to me ('Knocked Up', 'Five Year Engagement', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall', 'Bridesmaids'). I understand that it may not be everyone's cup of tea as some people try to go to the movies as a form of escapism but I really enjoyed it. I think it's actually one of the appeals to me - its not as formulaic and wrapped up neatly at the end all the time. I really enjoyed this movie and thought that Paul Rudd and Leslie did an honest portrayal of marriage and the way that things change the longer you're together and grow older. It was a really sweet comedy and I reccommend it - the supporting cast of Jason Segal, John Lithgow and Megan Fox were amazing as well and turned in fine performances as well.
