Usually not home on a Saturday night, but since we are all going out to party hearty Sunday night for New Year’s Eve, I decided to stay home and get to bed early. We all stayed out so late last night that I’m running on empty and need some sleep. So I want to pick a movie on cable and fall asleep in my recliner when my eyes get too heavy.
There are so many good movies on cable tonight. What is up with that? Usually I’ve got 700 channels and not a damn thing worth watching. But tonight I have to pick from 6 different ones that are all good in their own right. I decoded to go with the Blues Brothers on Cinemax. I really dig that movie – it was good times, back in the day!
Whenever we go to a home improvement store, I like to go to the section where they display all of the different kinds of entry doors they sell. I like to imagine how each one would look on my fantasy home. Doors say a lot about the family that lives inside the house!
Up until recently, the importance of doors in a house was vastly under appreciated by me. I went to visit a friend recently whose house was not quite “finished.” They had no doors on the inside of the house yet. Not even a bathroom door. They had a curtain hung across the doorways of the rooms for visual privacy, but you could just forget any kind of conversation privacy! It really struck me how much I take doors in a house for granted!
I really like the glass doors in our house. We have glass storm doors on our house, and I like them because we can lock the glass door for security but open the main door to let in the light if we want to. Our pets appreciate that because then they can sit in front of the glass doors and look outside quite easily. Our dog always makes sure that she alerts us when she sees a squirrel, or cat, or deer, or fox crossing our lawn.
I really love the look of French Doors. Those are my very favorite kind of doors. We have French Doors going out to our deck in the back yard. I just think there is a feeling of luxury, or maybe romance, to have two doors open like that. I don’t know how to describe it, I just like it! Perhaps it triggers some kind of memory of a romantic Hollywood movie or romantic television show, I really don’t know.
Nicholas Cage is one of the actors I have followed his entire career and like almost every movie he has been in. Some of my all-time favorite movies have included Cage in the cast, such as “Raising Arizona” and “The Rock.” His movie career actually goes back to 1982 when he played Nicholas Coppola in “Fast Times at Ridgememont High.” However, he broke into acting with a role in 1981 on “Best of Times,” a short lived teenage version of “Laugh In.
“It was good to see him the other night on Letterman. He seemed to be very relaxed and talkative, and he has several works in production, and shared some funny stories with the recent release of his new movie, “Stolen” with Will Montgomery. I found the Official Trailer #1 of Stolen on YouTube.com. It’s less than two minutes long, but full of action the whole time.
I’m going to make a point of seeing that on our big screen that we got for Christmas that is looking and working real well in the living room – from watching a few clips, it has some rocking action scenes. I can’t really think of any movie that I have seen Nicholas Cage in and hope that he continues on with his acting career that has been going strong for a good long while now.
