Movie review haiku: The Blind Side

Oscar-worthy? Meh
Not really about football
Just an OK film

Running song of the month

"Sweet Disposition" by The Temper Trap
Uplifting, joyous and beautiful. Reminds me to look around, take in my surroundings and really enjoy the run.

Movie review haiku: Iron Man 2

Movie brings the fun
Not as good as first one, though
Let's blow up some stuff!

Running song of the month

"Home," Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
Seriously. I defy you to listen to this song and not smile. I intentionally kept this song off my iPod to save it for race day. When it kicked on around mile 11 of the Indianapolis Mini-Marathon, a smile spread across my face and it stayed there until I crossed the finish line. (For real: I have photographic evidence.) 

Movie review haiku: Kick-Ass

Has it all: Action.
Character development.
Comedy. Heart. Fun.

Betty White on SNL

Loved Betty White on "Saturday Night Live" this week. However, did anyone else find her getup in "The Manuel Ortiz Show" sketch reminiscent of ... E.T.?

Running song of the month

"Close to Me," The Cure
This has always been one of my favorite Cure songs, but only recently did I give it a go on a running playlist. Man, I've been missing out. Great tempo and beat, and the clapping makes me pick up my feet just a little higher. Just try not to pay too much attention to the words; Robert Smith and Co. aren't really known for their uplifting lyrics.
