What is this lady-boner that I got watching Frozen? I really liked The Princess and the Frog (despite Prince Naveen) and wasn’t much of a fan of Tangled (despite Mother Gothel)- Frozen, instead, achieves the perfect balance. And I love love love LOVE Elsa. AND I DIDN’T EVEN SEE the original audio, and I loved it.

Idina Menzel, though, wow. Vocal boner. I do kinda liked the Spanish latino version of the song, Libre Soy [1] performed by Carmen Sarahi, a little bit better in lyrics and meaning, but Menzel’s vocals take the song to unparalleled heights. Can’t wait to get to watch the original audio track.

Elsa… Elsa swings her hips when she walks! And she has a smirk! She feels and is in turmoil and doesn’t seek a man to fix her life. She wants to be left alone, but of course- all she needs is open up her heart to her sister! Of course I love it.

I was finally doing some room cleaning, and ran into this plastic bag that had a whole bunch of the tickets of movies I caught while living/staying in Van. The results? Of course, I spent over two hours trying to make out some of the fade tickets, arranged them and put them in order of attendance.

The first movie that I caught there was Hulk at what used to be Tinseltown Cinemark. The first two columns cover my first year of studies. My maximum number of movies a month was 9 flicks in January 2004 (Cold Mountain, Big Fish, Peter Pan, 21 Grams, Along Came Polly, Monster, Butterfly Effect, The Cooler and Ginger Snaps 2), April 2004 (Hellboy, The Delicate Art of Parking, Kill Bill, Connie and Carla, Home on the Range, The Punisher, Dogville (twice) and Man on Fire), followed by July 2006 (Devil Wears PradaThe Omen,The Lake HouseThe King, PotC 2Lady in the Water, Strangers with Candy, and an unidentified movie that’s already faded) with 8 flicks.

Oh man, American pop music must really be in a dire situation if people are praising Britney’s latest song, Ooh La La — for The Smurfs 2 OST, I swear this is the last time I mention that movie — as “vintage Britney” and describing it as “folksy pop-tart” with “whimsical vocals,” because yeah. I’ll defer y’all to SunnyHill. [1][2][3][4] You’re welcome.

Anyway, I’ll roll my eyes to the song and the music video. I just wanted to talk about Britney. I think this is the first time, since the early 2000s, that I’ve seen Britney happy. And I’m happy she looks happier. I think she enjoys spending time with her kids. I wish she could be happier through most of her week.

What I’m not entirely sure is if she should be adding her kids into the music video — she should know she’s exposing them more than what paparazzi shots would be. Adding them into her music video would make them fair game. I hope she’s not turning into her own mother.

I refuse to call this a music video, since it’s actually been commissioned by Adobe to promote their upcoming cloud system. But… it’s beautiful. All done by Spain-based Dvein. I’m uncertain about the credit to The Vein.

There’s also a Making Of available if you’re interested.

I’ve got some pretty nice recommendations to share.
