1. I received a surprise $50 iTunes belated birthday gift from a friend recently. Nice! Anyone have suggestions on how to spend it? I’m tempted to blow it not on music, but on movies/TV shows.
2. BEFORE I got the awesome gift, I’d pre-ordered the new Coldplay album. I didn’t buy their last album X&Y because I found it very MEH. But this new album? I give it a big thumbs up. They’ve changed their sound a little and I am really digging it so far. Oh and the iTunes store is having a Coldplay sale – all older albums are $7.99 – and they’re the higher quality, no DRM iTunes Plus editions too.
3. I just read that Ridley Scott’s developing a Robin Hood movie. And Russell Crowe’s in it as the Sheriff of Nottingham. And Christian Bale was rumored to be Robin, but now some kid named Sam Bale’s rumored to be in the lead. Which is all well and good EXCEPT, the plot of the film is something like this, per IMDB: A love triangle forms between the legendary do-gooder Robin Hood, his Maid Marion and the archer’s arch nemesis, the Sheriff of Nottingham. Huh. I do love me some Russell Crowe though. This reminds me – I need to rent 3:10 to Yuma. Crowe + Bale = TOO MUCH HOTNESS.
Laundry’s done! Hope you had a good weekend!
