For everyone who watches Sesame Street, this video of Feist singing 1,2,3,4 was on the past couple of days and I cannot get it out of my head. My daughter also loves watching the video. In case you missed it, check it out, it is very cute and catchy! Forgive me for not posting the actual YouTube video on my blog, not sure how to do that, only the link.

A while back I posted about my neighbor who did not have any water starting on September 8th. She had been coming over to my house a few times a week getting water to use for cooking and cleaning. They were digging the well and the contractor seemed to have an excuse for anything when it came time to come over and work on it. Four months and 195 feet later she has water!!! I don't think I could have gone that long without it, even more so in the winter time!

Here we go again............
Is it only me out there that is not too thrilled with this movie? Let me first start off with I am a BIG musical person. I watch TCM and all of the musicals from old to new, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is one of my favorites. I have gone to a few shows at the Goodspeed Opera House, which in case you did not know is the birth place of Annie.
So what did I not like about the movie? First off, I have heard from many people that the live misical is great. Many musicals have gone to the big screen and turned out just fine. Maybe it was just the cast of actors that were chosen. I was baffled why they could not dub over Pierce Brosnan's voice, I love him from being such a James Bond fan that I had to leave the room when ever he sang!
As for Meryl Streep don't get me wrong, I have a lot of respect for Meryl Streep, she has been in several amazing movies. But for some strange reason, I felt this role was not meant for her. I had to laugh reading a review on Rotten Tomatoes stating "Streep and her ancient co-stars create pure torture whenever on screen together." I would have to say that is exactly how I felt watching this movie. Maybe seeing the movie The Devil Wears Prada tainted me since she is so straight forward, dressed to the hilt compared to wearing overalls and hair that seems to want to look like her co-star daughter, long and no style.
So what about the music? I was waiting for each scene to go into an ABBA song and could not even get into the music. The final scene of the movie with all of them dancing on stage like they were at a concert was probably the best scene, looking like they were really having fun. I guess I have to go see the musical now to get a better idea of why this is so popular.
