So, when I was unemployed for that long stretch of time, one of my rules was not to watch TV during the day. I could have the TV on in the morning, when I'd watch the Today show or GMA. And then I'd watch Regis and Kelly (DON'T JUDGE) and then I'd shut off the TV and get to work on finding work. I didn't want to fall into the trap of sitting in front of the TV all day.
However, once in a while I'd break the rule, and turn on the TV if I was particularly bored, and flip through all the movie channels. There's not a lot of good movies on during the day, I have to say, and pretty much every one I watched involved Brittany Murphy in some way. This was enough to remind me why
I didn't want to watch TV during the day.
Sorry, Brittany Murphy. I don't want to speak ill of the dead, but you were in a lot a lot A LOT of terrible movies. I think the worse one was the one where you were on a scandalous talk show that ruined you and all your friends' lives. Or maybe the one where you were a English girl named Jax with an accent so bad that the movie created an in-story explanation for it. Sorry, that was way harsh, Tai.
However, one movie that Brittany Murphy was in that wasn't terrible
(I know, damning with faint praise) was Uptown Girls
, in which she played Dakota Fanning's nanny and her musician boyfriend was played by Jesse Spencer from House
. Heather Locklear was also in it. I feel Dakota Fanning's presence elevated the entire proceedings.
And today's song is FROM THE MOVIE which is why I told you that whole story. :DSheets of Egyptian Cotton by Jesse SpencerNa na na na na na na na / Sheets of Egyptian cotton
It is a TERRIBLE song. Terribly terribly catchy, that is. Enjoy the earworm!Right click, or ctrl click to download.
