A physical set back!

Posted in Life in General, Work It Out on July 30, 2009 by Daddycatcher

Daddycatcher is a nail biter.  Always has been.

Well, he must’ve taken a big chomp out of his one of his fingers because he ended up getting an infection!

The doctor had to drain the finger by cutting into it.  And now Daddycatcher has one sore middle finger!

And it hurts!!!

Looks like it’s going to be just cardio for awhile.

Daddycatcher’s CATCH OF THE DAY: Brian Austin Green

Posted in Catch of the Day on July 29, 2009 by Daddycatcher

Daddycatcher was totally a “Brandon Walsh” groupie during 90210.  But now he’s clearly on Team “David Silver.”

The Trouble with Contini…

Posted in Movies on July 29, 2009 by Daddycatcher

Bloggers and chat rooms have taken to the internet with their thoughts about a test screening of the upcoming movie musical (and Daddycatcher’s favorite musical) Nine.

Let start with the negative, shall we!

janiston30 at the IMDb board says:

No Nine, Belles of St. Sebastian, Simple, Grand Canal, Be On Your Own, or Lady of the Spa. Kate Hudson’s character Stephanie has a song, which didn’t jive with the musical AT ALL. Louisa has an extra song in place of Be On Your Own, but it is not at all the same. Overall, very different, but it still works very well on film.

BenTrendster on All That Chat:

The pace of the movie is very slow and the film feels very heavy. There is really no joy in this movie. Where the film versions of Chicago and Sweeney Todd succeed, this movie fails. The movie takes way too long to get to the first song and there are long sequences with no music throughout the film.

dark-pigeon on the IMDb board:

The dance scenes were rather spectacular…but sometimes tediously long and tiring and just didn’t seem to end and at sometimes overdone.

Judi Dench & Daniel

But wait, there is some positive stuff coming out as well!

granda1313 from the IMDb board:

Cottiliard and Cruz stood out among the women, of course they had the biggest parts. Both sang very well and “Call from the Vatican” and “My Husband Makes Movies” are two of the best numbers in the film. The best number however is “Be Italian” which Fergie absolutely nails.

amona_abdalla91 from a Nicole Kidman website:

Wow! What a fantastic and exciting movie. Can’t say enough good things about the performances, the music, the dancing, everything…I can definitely see this movie being nominated for an Oscar. I don’t know if the song that Fergie sings, “Be Italian” is an original or if it was in the Broadway show, but if it was written for the movie then I would say it’s a definite as well for best song.

BenTrendster on All That Chat:

The performances are fun to watch. Many big names in the cast and although they are not all the strongest singers, they range from adequate to excellent in both their singing and acting…I really enjoyed Marion Cotillard’s performance as Luisa Contini. She gives the most believable performance, adds strong dramatic interpretations to her songs, and has a nice singing voice.

Kate Hudson

Anticipation is building for the November 25, 2009 release.

Feeling a little sore in the chest and shoulder areas from a workout yesterday morning.  Very proud for getting up early yesterday and hitting the gym really hard.

Daddycatcher has lost a total of 5 lbs.  since he started the workout and diet regime.

Early bedtime tonight for another early day at the gym tomorrow.  Back and bicep Wednesday!

Daddycatcher received an email today from Broadway Impact, an organization of Broadway community members who stands for equal rights, announcing their next big event – The True Colors Cabaret.

Exciting!

Daddycatcher wants his Disney Character Breakfast!

Posted in Daddycatcher's Disney Obsession on July 27, 2009 by Daddycatcher

Those pesky brats!

Daddycatcher and the Big Man’s itinerary for their big Disney World trip is coming together.

However, we seem to have hit a snag in the process when Daddycatcher tried to make a reservation at The Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom for the Winnie the Pooh themed Character Breakfast. Every reservation slot was booked!  All week!! And so are all the other character breakfast options!!!

No dice.  Guess people with children were having the same idea.  You would think booking 60 days in advance would be enough time!!!

Crystal Palace

However, it does look like we’ll be able to get into Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Show at the Polynesian Resort.  This is kind of a big deal for the Big Man because he wanted to stay at this resort for the trip.

Unfortunately, we’re staying off property.  Fortunately, it is through Daddycatcher’s parents timeshare, so it cost us close to nothing and the actual resort we are staying at is gorgeous and right next to Disney World.
