Tonight I plan on watching To Make a Farm.  It’s a documentary that follows five people who have decided to give small-scale farming a go.  Having a little farm would be awesome, but I suspect the documentary will show just how hard it is to make a living at it.

Tonight The Girl and I are going way back and watching Rodgers & Hammerstein’s State Fair.  It was released in 1945, and about a girl and her family going to the State Fair {the most exciting thing all year, don’t you know}.  It makes life seem simpler to watch these classics sometimes.  If you haven’t seen it, seriously, it’s a hoot.

Tonight I am going to check out Grow!  It’s a documentary about the next generation of farmers–and how they have come to choose farming as a career path.  I’m pretty much a sucker for these kinds of films, so I am sure I won’t be disappointed.

Tonight The Girl and I are going to watch Betting the Farm.  It’s about a group of dairy farmers, who after being dropped by their national milk company, decide to band together to start their own milk company.  I really hope it’s one of those stories that shows just how successful local food can be–though, given the trailer, it looks like it might really be about the sheer struggle of being successful and both farming and business.

I noticed that they just added Magic Beyond Words to the Amazon Instant Video list, and since I am a sucker for success stories, I am adding it to the list.  It’s the story {told in more of a Lifetime Drama-type setting} about J.K. Rowling, the author of Harry Potter.  I knew she had a bit of a rough go at life and am kind of interested to see the details. What can I say?  I love a story where someone triumphs over struggle.

Friday Night at the Movies: Classic Irish Movies for St. Patrick’s Day

Classic Irish Movies for St. Patrick’s Day

In honor of the upcoming holiday, I thought I’d roll out a list of Irish movies to get you in the St. Paddy’s Day spirit. Some of these movies are AWESOME and a few I’ve never even seen, but are highly recommended. So go get your green on and settle in to watch one of these Irish classics.

If nothing else, you can mute the movies and dream about traveling to Ireland! It’s even more amazing than all these movies show. You have to see it in person some day to truly understand how gorgeous it is. But for now, seeing it in movies will have to do!

1. Waking Ned Devine: I love this movie. The Girl loves this movie. So of course we watch it all. the. time. It is one of my all-time favorite movies and I wouldn’t just recommend it for St. Patrick’s Day, but really any day of the year. Although, since it’s St. Patrick’s Day, watch away. You won’t regret it!

2. Once: First, grab your Kleenex before watching this. Second, don’t be scared off because of the “musical” label. It’s all the beautiful music that comes with a musical without all the glitz and outrageous costumes and choreographed dance sequences I hate. This movie follows an immigrant couple’s attempts to turn their love story into a musical. Sounds like an odd premise, but it works. And the music is awesome too.

3. Circle of Friends: An Irish coming of age tale that is the perfect Irish chick flick. It also stars Minnie Driver and Chris O’Donnel, so that’s a double plus in my book. Sure certain parts are a tad cheesy, but overall it’s the perfect movie for The Girl and I to get lost in on a Friday night.

4. Darby O’Gill and the Little People: This movie is pure kitsch, nostalgic nonsense. And I love every last minute of it. It’s tacky and silly, yes, but it absolutely works. It’s also a great movie to watch with the whole family. And I’m pretty sure it’ll make you laugh every time!

5. The Commitments: This movie is a great one if you need a good Irish laugh. It’s about a group of working class Irish musicians that decide to bring “soul” to Dublin by forming a very white version of a soul band. It’s awesome, and after watching it, I read a little about it and learned that pretty much all of the actors had never acted before. They cast them purely on their musical talents. I would not have guessed that, because they did a totally believable job!

6. Angela’s Ashes: This one is a hard one to watch and will probably make you cry, but don’t let that scare you off. The writing is awesome, and even though it’s a heavy storyline, it’s so worth watching. In a nutshell, it’s the story of how one father’s alcoholism reeks complete havoc on his family. Like i said, heavy stuff. But if you’re in the mood to shed a good tear, this is the perfect movie for you.

7. Braveheart: I know, I know. Technically this is not an Irish movie, but a portion of the movie was filmed in Ireland so I’m adding it to the list. And because it’s one of the HH and Monkey Boy’s favorites of all time. Even though I normally don’t like that much violence, I’ve gotta admit it was pretty incredible.

8. Boondock Saints: Here’s another one I haven’t seen, but ranks up there as a HH favorite. He tried to get me to watch it once, but that was right after I watched Braveheart for the first time, so I needed a good chick flick to recover from that. From what I gather, it’s a vigilante Irish mafia movie. But the HH swears it’s good. Maybe someday I’ll give in and watch it!

So there you have a great selection to get you in the Irish spirit. Did I miss any of your favorites?

Peace out Girl Scouts & have yourself a great weekend,

With all of the time we all spend “googling” every thought that pops into our heads, I thought I’d better add Google Me to my watchlist.

It’s about a guy, who late one night decides to google his own name.  After a list of people pop up, he decides he to create a documentary of how he connects with all of the resulting people.  He travels all over the world to hunt down people and experience their lives with them.  There are seriously millions of ways to use google–this one is quirky and unique, so it might be a fun watch, we’ll see?

Friday Night at the Movies – Inside Chipotle

I don’t have a ton of time tonight, so I am just watching a quick 20 minute documentary called Inside Chipotle.  It’s the story of how Chipotle came to be, and the reasons they cook with sustainable and responsibly grown/raised meat and produce.  Chipotle caught my attention with their ad several months ago, so I am kind of curious how the owner decided on his food/business plan.

Inside Chipotle is FREE to stream on Netflix.

As soon as we get back from our trip, The Girl and I are going to start the Masterpiece Classic’s, Mr. Selfridge.  Since, I admit, I am a sucker for all things British, I’m not too worried that I won’t love it.  It’s about an American business man set on opening up an upscale department store  in London.  It’s free on amazon prime, and getting great reviews, so it pretty much fits all of my requirements.  Hot dog.

Tonight The Girl and I are going to watch A.D.D. and Loving It?!  It’s supposed to be a comprehensive look at A.D.D.–the good, the bad and the ugly.  I am actually super interested to see this one–I know a ton of people or their children who live with A.D.D. and I’m curious how they are going to portray it in the film.
