1. an early-1990s glam metal band founded by long-lock’d brothers Matthew and Gunnar Nelson.
2. a hold in which pressure is applied to the head, back of the neck, and one or both arms of the opponent.
Talk about enviable hair… Imagine how much conditioner those boys must have gone through, oy!
This morning I was listening to the catchy but oh-so-cheesy After the Rain:
“After the rain washes away the tears and all the pain — only after the rain, you’ll love again.”
Should I be embarrassed to admit how much that song moves me?
Or this one?
Or how about this one?
The last two were written by songwriter Diane Warren. On the surface they might seem like they’re about romantic love, but I’ve read where Diane says How Do I Live is actually about her relationship to her music, and Because You Loved Me was an ode to her dad and how he supported her artistic dreams.
I’m not sure where I’m going with this…
So besides listening to a lot of music this weekend (it’s my therapy), I managed to also sneak in a movie that turned out to be amazing. Brothers? Starring Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman? LOVED IT SO MUCH! Tobey and Jake play brothers in the film. While Tobey’s character goes off to war, his brother, the troublemaker in the family, is left to live in his gigantic shadow.
I’d forgotten just how great an actor Tobey is. Guy’s got MAD acting chops. I can’t believe he wasn’t at least nominated for a statue.
If you’ve seen any films that you’ve really enjoyed lately, let me know, okay? I’m a total movie buff.
