I'll blame my movie selections on an inner teenage girl named Britney

For a self-confessed movie snob who raises a suspicious eyebrow towards anything musical, I sure do love Moulin Rouge.

Especially Your Song from Moulin Rouge.

Now this is totally an atypical film selection for me (why am I defending myself?) and the original of this song made me want to stick a fork in my thigh but in all seriousness: this version of the song makes me weak in the knees. And maybe, just maybe I drool a wee bit while being hypnotized by Christian (and *poof* just like that, my male audience disappears.)

Of course it's easily explained in two words -- those words would be "Ewan" and "McGregor" for those slow on the uptake. Of course the song is just magical (oh cripes, did I just say that?) because he sings it with such sincerity that you can't help but remember how it felt the first time you fell head over mo'fo' heels over a real! live! someone! (or not, no pressure).

SB does not like this movie. I think he'd rather watch Twilight again than sit through Moulin Rouge one more time, so there you have it. And in case you are wondering: another anomaly in my celluloid longings is Twilight. Which for the record, is not a good movie but oh my holy Hello Kitty toaster, it's worth sacrificing time that could have been spent sleeping if you have a smidgen of inner teenage girl wanting to bust out for the vampire love. And if you are a guy with an inner teenage girl, I don't want to hear the graphic details in my comments (but send me an email so I can mock you.)(That is, mock you privately of course.)(Don't worry everyone, I'll publicly mock them.)

Yet, I should not mock those inner teenagers because FADKOG reminded me that everyone has an inner teenage boy who laughs at shit like this:


That there is comedy gold and if your inner teenage boy didn't laugh at that, I don't think we can be friends.

No point to this post, it's just I can't keep this kind of stuff to myself. Happy Friday y'all (that was Britney btw.)

Y'all!! There's a smidge of a chance I have an inner gay teenage boy who loves him some Moulin Rouge, too! Not that he HAS to be gay, mind you (but it would probably be the only way I could get him to sit and watch Twilight)(I still question my husband's sexuality a bit after HE brought that movie home)(not really)(oh, I don't know...I'm so confused, y'all...)

I feel the same way about that movie. And Ewan. He could Obi Won me with his Kenobi any day.

Seth totally fists bumps you.

P.S. The inner gay teenage boy in me is named Lance, btw.

For me, it's "Come What May" at the end of the movie... adore Ewan in that scene.

Mommy Melee said...

Oh god yes.

My husband and I danced to Come What May as our wedding song. We're SUCH epic dorks.

Mayberry said...

I just LOL'd at that tweet.

CaraBee said...

I adore Moulin Rouge, and Ewan, and Your Song. Although Come What May is a close second. I have that soundtrack on rotation in my car. Whenever one of the songs comes on, my husband says "no, just no." Clearly he has no inner homosexual teenage boy. Which might not be a bad thing.

Um, yes. That tweet is total hilarity in 140 characters or less, and Ewan McG, well, if anything happens to Matt... he could be my backup boyfriend.

I loooove Moulin Rouge and that song always reminds me of BubTar. When I was pregnant with him I watched the movie a billion times and was even watching it while I was up counting contraction before going to the hospital to have him. And, for the record, he has blue eyes. LOL.

And I am really laughing out loud about "master swallower". Those Duggars, they sure don't like to waste semen.

I love Moulin Rouge. Even have the DVD. Wife hates it, though.

Lady M said...

Love Moulin Rouge and Ewan McGregor. And Ewan as Obi-Wan and whatever that 60's style movie was with Renee Zellwegger. I'm even contemplating seeing Angels and Demons for him. :0

Chicky Chicky Baby said...

When Ewan sings "Come What May" my panties occasionally spontaneously fly off. It makes watching Moulin Rouge challenging in a mixed audience, but for that movie I'm willing to take that chance.

Christina said...

I still watch Moulin Rouge all the time. It's one of my favorite movies. I love the sensory overload in the first 15 minutes - still find something new on the screen each time I watch.

And "Come What May" was Aaron and I's first dance at our wedding. Reading the comments, it seems we weren't the only ones.

No Mother Earth said...

Sigh, Ewan. Mr Earth and I saw Moulin Rouge on the weekend we got engaged. I sometimes have difficulty speaking to people who mention casually that they hate it. But then, I am biased. I knew we were kindred spirits...

Besides, a musical made up of 80's pop tunes? Truly Outrageous.

I just like to say it. Ewen. EEEYOOOOOOOWEN...
