That wasn't so bad...

I thought Monkey Love was supposed to be a totally crap movie, but it was actually kinda cute. Jeremy Renner was adorable as hell. The story was a little weak and unoriginal (girl falls in love with her two best friends), but it was still sweet. And it had a happy ending- Jeremy gets the girl. Oh, the reason it's called Monkey Love is because one of the male friends is obsessed with the mating habits and dick sizes of primates. :p

And there was this naughty little scene:


Other movies- One of the reasons I loved Moonrise Kingdom so much was the music. I had to get the soundtrack. Benjamin Britten's opera Noye's Fludde figures heavily into the film's plot. The scenes with the opera being performed brought back so many memories!  When I was a little girl, my church did a production of it, and I was one of the animals! A pig, if you must know.
I can't believe how much I remember from it.
Here's a production found on youtube...not a great recording, but it's the whole opera:

Alexandre Desplat's score was also heavily influenced by Britten. The music over the credits is set up like Britten's A Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra.

I aim to please. :p

Apparently, there's a love scene in Bourne Legacy, too. Jeremy and Rachel Weisz...oooooooooo. Of course, it's a PG-13 flick, so it can't be too hot...

Oh how fun that you were in Noye's Fludde! I went to see Moonrise Kingdom primarily because I heard it would have lots of Britten music in it! I loooooove Benjamin Britten. And it was a good movie too.

I found this post because I clicked on your "sex on a stick" tag to see if it was something new or a tag you've been using for a while. Because that sounds really painful.

"Sex on a stick" is more like "he's a lollipop and I want to lick him". ;) Jeremy Renner fits the description. :p

Yeah, Noye was fun. My mother designed and made most of our costumes. Somewhere she has photos of me with my pig mask. My sister played Mrs. Ham- I kid you not!
