D Is For Detroit
Hi everyone! Thanks so much for the great comments about my new scar. In this picture, it's being covered by a bandage as it heals. The scar was really bad after surgery and has improved a lot. It's strange to think that I didn't have it a month ago and now it will be around forever. I've been arranging the last section of Second Day Reported (D Is For Detroit) and am worn out from the labors. I'm going to write a new light happy post tomorrow about something not concerning illness or violence. Or I will try. Right now, I'm going to leave you with a list of things I want to see at the movies very soon!
"The Wrestler" -- Going by the trailer, this movie looks like it was made for me. Mickey Rourke as a broken down professional wrestler, Marissa Tomei as a stripper he likes, and Evan Rachel Wood as his estranged daughter. Bleak but loving -- my favorite combination.
"Revolutionary Road" -- loved the novel. Here's hoping the movie is great as well. Nina Simone song ("Wild Is The Wind") in the trailer is fantastic.
"Gran Torino" -- Clint Eastwood and Detroit. What more do you want?
