Watched it during my lunch break (on the ABC Family player, which recycles the same ads for Febreze/Olay/Clairol each ad break, UGH), and I lurved the dance to the Britten tune (‘Cuckoo’).
That actually is my favorite Bunheads episode so far — it’s like they’re finally finding their rhythm or something. Plus, Liza frickin’ Weil!

Stupid habit I need to break
Laughing when something is funny, then looking around for affirmation to make sure other people are laughing too, and if they’re not laughing, stopping.
LAUGH LIKE NOBODY’S WATCHING, NELLIE
I saw Moonrise Kingdom a second time (thanks, Mom*) on July 4th and the 60-something man sitting next to me kept looking at me whenever I would giggle or laugh. Which, honestly, wasn’t as often as I had during the first viewing, BUT WHATEVER. I just ignored him and kept laughing.
*My mom got so excited about the use of this song in the film that she exclaimed (louder than she meant to, I think) that she hadn’t heard it in years…
My friend J posted this to my FB wall because she knows I wondered this, exactly.
Not a huge Wes Anderson fan, but given that Jette loved this movie and a friend asked me to see it with him tomorrow night, I guess I’ll be checking Moonrise Kingdom out. Also, I love a chance to visit the Violet Crown Cinema! (Jette’s Review: Moonrise Kingdom | Slackerwood)
