A Must Watch: Pitch Perfect

I watched Pitch Perfect last night and it has made it to the top of my favorite 2012 movies list! Refreshing, and along the lines of Bridesmaids and The Hangover funny. Ana Kendrick surprisingly sounded really good and Rebel Wilson was off the charts hilarious! Watch it and let me know what you think! (You can stream it at Let Me Watch This if you don’t get it on DVD soon) P.S. The soundtrack is HAWT!

Here are two reviews resourced from Rotten Tomatoes that I genuinely agree with:

“Everything about the film feels fresh… For the target market, there are laughs galore, toe-tapping rhythms and a good up-tempo beat as Pitch Perfect hits its notes and delivers a romping fun time”

“Rebel Wilson practically rescues the film (and some of the songs) on her own with her talent, panache and self-confidence. She reminds me of irrepressible Melissa McCarthy in ‘Bridesmaids’ or Nikki Blonsky in ‘Hairspray.’”

Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting

Authorities in Connecticut responded to a mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Friday morning, the local NBC station reports. Police reported 27 deaths, including 20 children, six adults and the shooter, according to the Associated Press. Following hours of uncertainty during which many media outlets reported the shooter’s identity as Ryan Lanza, an official identified the suspected gunman as Adam Lanza, Ryan’s 20 year old brother, according to the Associated Press. Ryan Lanza, 24, is being questioned by police in New Jersey. Students were led single file from the schoolhouse to a nearby fire station. Parents alerted to the catastrophe by text messages and emails sent by the school district arrived hoping to find their children safe.

When we all thought kids were safe at school, this tragedy tears us apart. #PrayForNewton

Watch Obama’s statement to the shooting below. Heartbreaking is an understatement.

Japanese products at Sultan Center!

For all of you vegetarians out there, I found a few tofu products in Sultan Center Sharq! Tofu is high in protein and calcium and is well known for its ability to absorb new flavors through spices and marinades, so its PERFECT for vegetarians. You can use it in salads, soups, and stews. It can also be grilled, used in stir fries, and pureed into a dip. The Asian Style Tofu would go well with noodles, I cant wait to try it!

There were also so many cool Japanese products like these panko breadcrumbs, You can panko everything and you know what would be amazing? cheese stuffed panko jalapeno poppers! yum!  These mushrooms of different varieties and flavors are so cute! I didn’t know what to choose, so I took one of each to try. If you love Japanese products, go check the Japanese section at Sultan Center, I’m pretty sure you’ll love it!
