November has sure been interesting for me. I can’t say that ever before have I been in all three of the country’s big cities (New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago) in one month. But now I can.
Here we are yesterday, driving up Lake Shore Drive in Chicago to deliver a print to a gallery. (Sorry for the camera phone pics.)
I got home last night; finally, no more traveling for a while. I was lazy and watched movies. It’s been so long since I’ve been “lazy” that I didn’t know how to do it, I kept feeling like there was something I should be attending to. But finally, I settled in.
I watched “Captain America” (for Chris Evans) and “Blue Valentine.” I liked “Blue Valentine” enough (good, not great). But, this might be one of my favorite movie scenes — ever.
Just before this clip, Ryan Gosling’s character says this:
I can’t really sing. I have to sing goofy, in order to sing. I have to sing stupid.
I do, now, understand why people make a big deal about Ryan Gosling. And Michelle Williams is just awesome.
