(500) Days of Summer vs. He's Just Not that Into You

Well isn't this fun...Love, love love, love (as said by Ben Stiller in The Heartbreak Kid) is quite interesting now isn't it. Not just by the fact that I may or may not be bitter over my recent breakup with my first love, but more so tickled with delight from these two movies about that very subject, love...or whatever you think it is.

(500) Days of Summer breathed a little life into me and maybe yes some cynicism too. Here's a story of boy meets girl. Boy thinks it's destiny...fate, falls in love. Girl doesn't. It quite the classic tale all juxtaposed to the backdrop of current day Los Angeles as an anti-love story. You have stuck-in-a-rut Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who's architectural dreams land him at a Greeting Card writing company where he runs into destiny, well actually, Summer(Zooey Deschanel), his boss's new assistant. From the minute Tom see's her he's ruined, convinced that she no doubt is The One and he hadn't even spoken with her …

Hotel Cafe :: Copeland :: Sherwood :: Anchor and Braille

The Hotel Cafe has become one of my many favorite venues in LA!! I went with my concert buddy to see Copeland and Sherwood here and it was an incredible experience. I'd been there before to see Greg Laswell and Sal on Gospel Night and had been blown away but the intimacy, sound quality and overall experience.

I would recommend if you know any artists planning on doing an acoustic set to book here/ see a band here. It's just lovely what this atmosphere does for the audience. From the Bruschetta and fries available for munching, there's bottled beers like San Francisco's AnchorSteam, Stella and quality liquers for drinking. Resonably priced, off Cahuenga and near the Piano Bar, The Hotel Cafe satisfies...

A great range of artists new and establish grace the stage. Sal is a regular pianist and entertainer who is absolutley stunning, makes appearances regularly. Take a lover, take a friend...you'll love it!!!

Life

Somewhere down the line it seems thats everything we thought we wanted and everything we thought was going to happen in our lives is completely different than that, the said plan. What do we do from here when our "planned" destinies are denied to us? We're supposed to want to do anything we can and fight for what we want. But what if what we want changes based on said failure.?! All I know is somehow in the grand scheme of this we think we know what we want, but we don't. Nobody really does because there are way to many variables in this life that effect the outcome. People have babies with people they don't love, couples are together because they are more afraid to be alone, governments try to take away our freedoms through additonal regulation, our workplaces deny us the raises we deserve and give the execs more power and money...

It really is funny. Since I was 5 I've wanted to be a movie star/entertainer/celebrity. Under those pretenses I did what …
