Weekend Round-Up

The FLGs watched a Piers Morgan with Kid Rock:


FLG really liked his attitude. Unlike some other people who think that cool people are totally fucked up and insecure, FLG thinks it's pretty cool to say, "Here I am. If you have a problem with that, then fuck you." But that alone isn't a good thing. It needs to be moderated or the person ends up becoming a misanthropic, self-involved asshole. Kid Rock seems to have done well there too. Instead of living in the Hollywood hills, he still lives in Michigan and said that the only opinions that matter to him are those of the people in his community. That's the right attitude. It's refreshing to see somebody as seemingly self-aware as Kid Rock with no regrets.

FLG believes, using his own little pop psychology, most people who are famous are deeply insecure and crave fame to compensate. It's really nice to see somebody who appears to be correctly oriented.

(Then again, what does FLG know? For years he thought Christina Aguilera had her shit together and Brittney Spears was going to go down in a blaze of glory.)

Also, the FLGs went into Georgetown this weekend. This leads to a few things.

First, as we were driving over the Key Bridge, Miss FLG thought that Healy Hall at Georgetown was Sleeping Beauty's Castle.

Speaking of which, although Miss FLG loves Belle from Beauty and the Beast. She loves the movie Sleeping Beauty. FLG has to admit that it's a pretty damn good movie. Perhaps it's just that FLG likes the mid-century aesthetic, but the dialogue is fantastic. It's clever, sometimes dark, and often in verse. Plus, FLG thinks Maleficent might just be the best Disney villain. Speaking of which, apparently there's a Maleficent movie in planning stages to tell the story from her point-of-view a la Wicked.

Second, the FLGs visited the Georgetown Candy Bar, which was a tad disappointing.

Lastly, the FLGs visited Sprinkles. The latest cupcake shop in DC and the third in Georgetown alone. Well, that's not quite right. There's Georgetown Cupcake, of DC Cupcake fame, Sprinkles, and Baked & Wired is a coffeeshop/bakery that happens to sell cupcakes. Oddly, of all of them, Georgetown Cupcake's are the most overrated and it always has a tremendously long line. Baked & Wired's cupcakes are so much better and there is hardly ever a wait. Well, FLG discovered this weekend that Sprinkles has the best cupcakes of any of them, but he worries that in a few weeks the line will just as bad as Georgetown Cupcake.
