Gives me chills.

August 5, 2009

I watched Almost Famous last night for a couple reasons. One, it reminds me of Kate & Whitney. Two, it's one of those feel good movies, because even though you know the ending because you've seen it so many times, it still allows you to instill a little bit of hope. Three, Kate Hudson is my hero. Four, it has great music. The clip above is one of my favorites because when Russell touches Penny's hand and then her face, it gives me chills, and I love when she pretends to cry. The clip below for many reasons. One, the girl talking to William is really Anna Paquin and since I'm a True Blood addict, this is just fantastic. Two, the song playing is also from Girl Next Door, which is my favorite movie. So, not only does this movie remind me of home, but it includes a little bit of everything that I love.

"They don't even know what it is to be a fan. Y'know?
To truly love some silly little piece of music, or some band, so much that it hurts."

  1. aww this just made me so happy! it has been on repeat in my dvd player for weeks now and I just made Kate watch it for the first time too. This is my favorite movie of all time and I am so glad it has a special place in your heart too! --Zooey Deschanel is brilliant as well. Did you know Brad Pitt was set to play Russel's character but backed out? and it got most original screenplay in 2000!! :) love you


I love hearing from all of you and greatly appreciate all your feedback and comments! xx Kristen
