A Little Sweeny with your Friday, Mr. Todd?

It is Friday and I am a little late, but considering I live in Miami, let’s just call it “on Cuban time” and leave it at that. I am feeling so much better today; as if weights have been lifted off my cliché. I feel lighter too, but that could be due to the ever famous “depression diet.” My painful jaw has moved up into my ear, so now I hear a click with most jaw movements, but it goes away with slight massage and I feel that means it is an improvement over deterioration: bothersome to eat somewhat though.

This weekend’s homework for you is to watch Sweeny Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street starring Johnny Depp and tell me what you think of it. I watched it on my insane day and I just cannot decide if it was awesome or really bad and I was blinded by the style over substance. Be warned: it is a musical that is directed by Tim “Nightmare Before Christmas” Burton, so bizarre does not totally cover it, but it is a friendly kind of bizarre. More than once this movie made me think of Edward Scissorhands, which does not sound weird considering it also starred Depp and was directed by Burton, but the two of them have made some seven movies together and this is the first time I have thought of a previous collaboration between them to compare. That is either a good thing (a return to form) or a bad thing (running out of new ideas) and I go back and forth between the two. Tell me what you come up with.

Thank you and have a great weekend.

Sweeney Todd is a good movie and better play, but Repo the Genetic Opera is far better...

Ve, You are going on a cruise What ship and where Kan's parents love cruising out of Miami

I passed on 'Sweeney Todd.' As much as I adore Johnny Depp, it just didn't appeal to me.

We're going on Royal Caribbean and it's a 7 day cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Puerto Rico. I believe it's on their largest ship. We have a balcony stateroom. Beyond that I know nothing of cruises...it took me 28 years to return to the ocean after 2 years on a ship in the Coast Guard.

Your mother said...

You will love the eastern Carribean It is much nicer then the western and RC is one of our favorite lines
