This is photo I shot at Fernandina Beach in early September. The quote is all Ann's.
I have been waiting for this film since I saw the first installment of this Marvel Comics character's story, "Thor," in 2011!
"Thor: The Dark World" hits theaters on Friday, November 8th and I can pretty fairly predict it will be a blockbuster.
"The story unfolds when faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all. (IMDb)"
The movie stars Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Kat Dennings ("2 Broke Girls") as Darcy Lewis...and the very hot Chris Hemsworth as Thor. Yes...I know some of you may not care that he is hot...but the ladies reading this and watching the movie will most likely agree. (And...guys, you can get your geek on with Natalie!)
The movie is Rated PG-13 and I can NOT wait to see it this weekend! I think this is one that your older elementary school kids will be okay to see, too, even if it recommended for 13 and up. I mean...who doesn't love a good SUPERHERO film?
If you see it, share your opinions on it!
And...did I mention that Chris Hemsworth is HOT? :)
It's time for this week's "Mellow Monday" song...and I've chosen "Love Hurts" by Nazareth.
I remember listening to this song over and over again when I was a kid. I had the 45 and just a small turntable with no speakers. (The B-side was "Hair Of The Dog"...but I had to be careful playing that one so I didn't get in trouble with Mom! LOL!)
This really isn't a song I like to hear that often anymore, but if there's one thing I've learned in my 50 years on this Earth...it's that love really can hurt.
Que sera sera!

Since today is Halloween AND time for the "Townie Thursday" Video of the Week...I thought this video from "IT" would be most appropriate!
From Somerset, "IT" is a former Clear Channel-Lake Cumberland/Don Marshall Battle of the Bands winner and consisted of Kel Lovins on bass and vocals, Tyler Cook on guitar and Johnny Hodge on drums. The band is no longer together, but they made some fun music...HARD ROCKIN' MUSIC...together. And...I have to say, I did a LOT of head-bangin' with these guys!
This is a video that was produced by Jacob Ennis of TuckyWood Productions for the "IT" song, "Spooky Girl!"
Enjoy! And...HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
I haven't seen a really good comedy in a long time...but I have high hopes for "Last Vegas!"
The movie stars five...count 'em...FIVE...Academy Award winners! Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline and Mary Steenburgen are sure to deliver some great scenes!
The concept of the film is that three sixty-something friends take a break from their day-to-day lives to throw a bachelor party in Las Vegas for their last remaining single pal (Michael Douglas.) I don't think it will have the gross out factor of some recent 'bachelor party in Vegas' movies, but I think it will be funnier in a way ADULTS can understand.
The movie is Rated PG-13.
If you see it this weekend, let me know how you like it! I think I'll catch it on Sunday afternoon instead of taking my usual nap!
I am a huge Journey fan...and today, this song fits my mood.
"I'll Be Alright Without You"...I love how the songwriter is trying to convince himself of this. I don't think he was very successful in doing that. I know first hand it takes a long time to believe that statement.
And...while I'm talking about Journey...does anyone else miss Steve Perry? Geesh!

This is photo I took one day last October on my lunch hour in eastern Pulaski County. I think the quote fits the photo really well. The truth is ALWAYS the best road to take...from beginning to end.
