Ashley's Hollywood

I'm back!!!! I gave myself a deserved week off since my computer was screwed up and I was really busy with work and school. Let's just get started.

Arnold Schwarzenegger wins the election. I think it's great that a Republican actor is now in office because Hollywood tends to be liberal and incredibly annoying. On the other hand, I am not sure if I totally support an Austrian actor in an important American political office. Nonetheless, all the garbage that has come out about him in the past couple weeks is ridiculous and 98% untrue. We'll see how it goes.

A DVD that everyone should go out and buy is Rob Reiner's Stand By Me. You all remember the movie, I'm sure. The special edition is out, and has been for a while now, and it has a very interesting behind the scenes featurette that you would all probably enjoy. Stand By Me is a coming of age story for four young boys, played by: River Phoenix, Wil Wheaton, Corey Feldman, and Jerry O'Connell. The movie is written and directed beautifully and is just as good today as it was in the mid-'80s. If you haven't seen this Steven King adaptation, then do yourself a favor and buy it.

I for one would just like to say that I am extremely sick of hearing about "Bennifer," as I am sure we all are. Recently at work, I had an older man (Late 70s) come over to my counter from the magazine stand and say genuinely, "I am just so happy, Ben and J. Lo are back together!" I gave him a curious look, wondering how on god's green earth he knew who they were. Then he said, "What a crock of Bullshit that whole thing is, who gives a crap about those two." I tried not to burst into laughter because that's unprofessional, so to speak, but I couldn't help it. This was the most hilarious thing I have heard lately. Note to Jenn and Ben, your publicity stunt relationship is even annoying the elderly. Give it up!

Small week and in a hurry but I have so much to do today, til next week all!
