Or should I say KATty's choice! I just got back from the Marat Safin versus Robby Ginepri match at the LA Tennis Open, and I think I was in a state of shock during the whole match. I've never been so equally enamored with both players on the court to the point where I couldn't cheer for either one of them. I politely clapped for them both, but I didn't have the heart to scream either of their names. The whole match I was basically thinking these 2 thoughts:
1) This is surreal.
2) I wish I had a better camera.
It was truly a once in a lifetime experience to see my two favorites players play against each other, and I enjoyed every second of the 3-setter! Marat won; 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Marat Safin and Robby Ginepri, my two favorite OG tennis players (Jeremy Chardy is a fairly recent fav), are meeting in the first round! I'm not sure of the exact day and time that they'll be playing, but I WILL be there!
Marat! Robby! UCLA (my alma mater)! Pretty vs. Pretty! Ahhhhhhhhh! They've only met twice before (with Robby winning both meetings), but I've never seen them play against each other in the flesh. I can barely contain myself! Not to jinx it, but one of my biggest Lady Hooligan dreams is coming true (please see LH Webzine Archive More Important But: Eye-Candyland)! I need to breathe.
BTW, congrats to Robby on just recently beating John Isner in the semis of the Indianapolis Tennis Championships. He plays Sam Querrey in the final tomorrow (7/26 on ESPN2 at 12pm PST).
Marat, I'm looking forward to seeing you on Monday night as well when you take on Pete Sampras in the Millennium Challenge (also a part of the LA Tennis Open).
They even had henna tattoo artists there, and I finally got a CFC tattoo that I've been dying to try out (to go along with my newly manicured Chelsea blue nails)! I'm no hand model I know, but I gotz to get ready for the Chelsea boys. I'm seeing them in just 2 days!!!
YOWZA! In the past 2 days, I've been really lucky in finding awesome music that I'm completely digging!
Yesterday, I bought the debut cd from DISCOVERY, the duo made up of Rostam Batmanglij (from Vampire Weekend) and Wes Miles (from Ra Ra Riot). They sound like an R&B version of Crystal Castles; a very fun album!
And today, after a really long absence, I logged onto MySpace and heard a new song from one of my favorite English rappers, Kano. Well, he's featured on a Chase and Status track called "Against All Odds" that's actually not so new. Apparently, the album it's from, MORE THAN A LOT, came out last year in the UK.
Oh well, better late than never. AND, the whole fabulous album is only $5.99 (USD) on iTunes.
Yay! I'm so excited I had a Friday off and got to go to the movies like the good old days!
The crew and I saw PUBLIC ENEMIES today. I wasn't expecting much, as I'm not a big gangster movie fan. But, I'll see anything that Johnny Depp is in, and he did not disappoint! He's wonderful as per usual.
Overall, the movie was beautifully shot in high def digital, and I enjoyed the soundtrack. But, the movie was a little long for my taste, and some of the performances weren't that appealing (e.g. Christian Bale). However, Marion Cotillard was very good, except for her distracting French/Midwest/Navajo/Challenged accent.
I'd recommend the flick for the sole reason of seeing Johnny Depp on the big screen.
