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.

Movie review haiku: Where the Wild Things Are

Not a fan. Sorry.
wanted to like it, though.
Music gets five stars.

(Side note: The trailer is better than the movie. Effing love the trailer. Next list project: Movie trailers that are far superior to the movie.)

Movie review haiku: Zombieland

Gore-joy combo works
Fresh, funny spin on genre
"Ghostbusters" scene kills
