Gran Torino Film

Gran Torino
'Disgruntled Korean War vet Walt Kowalski (Eastwood) sets out to reform his neighbor, a young Hmong teenager, who tried to steal Kowalski's prized possession: his 1972 Gran Torino.'

In the heatwave our power went out, so off to the movies we went... This film was on our list, and then Mark got free tickets so there was no reason to not go (except that cinema sets aren't too comfy for 8 month pregnant ladies)...
I had no idea what this was about, but I thought maybe a car and gang movie, like Fast and the Furious, for the elderly... I was wrong... What it was, was a touching story about a racist, grumpy old geezer who reaches out and connects with his Hmong neighbours... There is more to the story, but it was quite nice not to know too much, so I'm not saying too much... The racism is fairly confronting, but in its context was also amusing... I was really impressed by it, and moved by it... If you get a chance you should see it...

Married to the Mob 2009 Spring/Summer Collection feat. Kid Sister

Well I was stoked to see that their new Spring line has launched, but unfortunately there arent too many pieces that I actually like... They are staying in line with their past designs, but I guess the theory is if it aint broke dont fix it...
That said I just bought jthe hot varsity jacket for winter, soooo looking forward to fitting into normal clothes again... Have a nice little collection of new things to inspire me back to pre baby weight...

Spongebob and BAPE

Not for sale, Pharrels own pair, just thought the cuteness was worth a mention... Cant wait to have a reason to watch spongebob! haha...
