Goldilocks Fun Run 2011

It is official. I am running the Goldilocks Fun Run 2011 in celebration of the bakeshop’s 45th anniversary. What had me to join this, versus Greentennial, are the following: Runrio event, nice singlet by New Balance, and the freebies (including 10% discount on Runnr!).

The 21K race route is the same as that of NatGeo Earth Day Run last April 09, 2011 in Bonifacio Global City.

There will be a medal and finisher’s shirt for all 21K runners. That will include me. Excited.

Last Night

FROM TRIBECA & ROTTEN TOMATOES:

Joanna (Academy Award(R) nominee Keira Knightley) and Michael Reed (Sam Worthington) are 7 years into a successful and happy relationship. They are moving along in their lives together until Joanna meets Laura (Eva Mendes), the stunningly beautiful work colleague whom Michael never mentioned. While Michael is away with Laura on a business trip, Joanna runs into an old but never quite forgotten love, Alex (Guillaume Canet) and agrees to have drinks with him. As the night progresses and temptation increases for the couple, each must confront who they are inside and outside of their relationship. Last Night is ultimately a film about choices – the choice you make to be with someone, to give yourself physically and emotionally, and how to survive all three. –(c) Tribecca

Bluer than blue Valentine

Somerset Maugham began his novel The Razor’s Edge by remarking that “death ends all things and so is the comprehensive conclusion of a story, but marriage finishes it very properly and the sophisticated are ill-advised to sneer at what is by convention termed a happy ending”.

Blue Valentine adopts that now venerable form advocated by Jean-Luc Godard, another commentator on crumbling relationships, when he said a film should have a beginning, a middle and an end, but not necessarily in that order.

Gawad Urian’s Top 10 Films from 2000 to 2009.

These are all indie films, which seals the fact that they are the only crop of artists who keeps the Philippine film industry alive. The major studios, well, never mind them. They are only for the money, not the quality of films that they give the audience.

House: The Last Temptation

Dr. Foreman: I’m glad you’re gonna be sticking around after today.
Masters: Really? You want me to stay?
Dr. Foreman: It’s good to add a different perspective to the department. Someone who still remembers there are rules other than House’s.
Masters: If I don’t play by House’s rules, he won’t let me in.
Dr. Foreman: Find a way around them.
Masters: I’d have to lie to him, which is still lying.
Thirteen: Lying about a lie, that’s practically telling the truth.

That is one of the clever lines in last week’s episode of House, where Masters did her last day at the Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. I just find the chicken scenes funny (in a hospital!).

Also, it made me play The Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” in my iPod a couple of times.
