The Social Network Im sorry for not posting for the past weekish.

This Tuesday I had to put down one of my rats, Gypsy.  I was really close to Gypsy and her sickness came on really suddenly. She got a brain tumor and I had to put her down. :( I am quite sad, I have to admit. I only have one rat now (I use to have 3) so its harder now, we really have to watch this last rat and keep her company all day. I feel so bad for her.
Ugh gawd. Looking at her picture makes me so sad. :(
I had dreams about her the other night, that she was in the cage with Pixel still.. okay anyhow.  So in honor of Gypsy my blog lives on and I continue to use her name as my own, because I love my little runt.

The show must go on....

Today is Theater Thursday!

 The Social Network

 97% Rating on Rotten Tomatoes 

My thoughts:
Amazing movie, truly.  If you haven't gone to see this movie you need to! Definitely, the top movie of the year right now and I'm not the only one with that opinion.  Even for folks who don't even go on face book, this movie delivers. (Just ask my boyfriend who is 100% anti-facebook)  

Interesting Facts about The Social Network:

 The Social Network was made without aquiring rights from Mark Zuckerberg or Facebook! Instead this movie is an interpretation based off of the book The Accidental Billionaires, by Ben Mezrich, which was very biased in its recounting of the story.
In a recent onstage interview, he (Mark Zuckerberg) said, “Honestly, I wish that when people try to do journalism or write stuff about Facebook that they at least try to get it right.” He later added, “The movie is fiction.”

In conclusion...while watching this movie please remember that a lot of this is fiction and the way they portray all these characters may not be entirely true.  But if you want to learn the real side of things google, google...and then google some more. (Thats what I did immediately after the movie) However! Even though facebook is really upset by the making of this movie, It is still an amazing movie! And honestly, I don't think it was as bad as they make it out to be. I don't want to spoil the movie, so I'm trying to be candid, I hope this all makes sense.

Released Tomorrow - October 8th!!:

Nowhere Boy

Synopsis: Imagine... John Lennon's childhood. Liverpool 1955: a smart and troubled fifteen year-old is hungry for experience. In a family full of secrets, two incredible women clash over John: Mimi, the buttoned-up Aunt who raised him, and Julia, the prodigal mother. Yearning for a normal family, John escapes into the new and exciting world of rock n' roll where his fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the teenage Paul McCartney. Just as John begins his new life, tragedy strikes. But a resilient young man finds his voice - and an icon explodes into the world.  ( Synopsis Quoted From)
I am a huge Beatles fan!!! I cant wait for this movie, I just hope it does well, it hasn't been very well publicized and that does worry me.

  1. I am so sorry about Gypsy. It's an awful feeling to lose a creature close to your heart and I'm so sorry you have to go through this. I hope you're doing okay!
    I'm actually more interested in the Social Network now that I know Zuckerberg's not involved with it. Before when I thought he was behind it I thought it was a shameless money making ploy on his part. It's nice to know it's actually a shameless money making ploy on someone else's part ;)
