Favorite Movie Tuesday: “The Royal Tenenbaums”

These three equally break and make my heart warm.

Oh, you guys. Today was so much better than yesterday. It was a productive and overall good day. Luckily the rain held out, and I was able to take a long bike ride. I love the Swamp Rabbit, but it’s super flat. To make sure I got a good enough workout, I kept the resistance at the highest level for all 8 miles and went as hard as I could. You know, with the occasional slam on the breaks to avoid a head-on collision with the random, stray child on a kiddie bike. It was a great afternoon.

I foolishly visited The Fresh Market on the way home for “a couple of things,” and ended up with a large,  full basket. Ah well. I poured a small glass of red, snuggled up to the pups, and because I am on a major Wes Anderson high I popped in “The Royal Tenanbaums.” I’ve been craving it since Sunday.


I think I’ve seen this movie about 60 times, seriously. The cast, the music, the filming, the story line, the colors, the mood of it all. It’s a consistent favorite that I will never tire of watching. “I’ve always wanted to be a Tenenbaum.”


No kidding, after days like yesterday, when I felt so down and overall just shitty, a non-eventful day like today, with a full work agenda, laughs with coworkers, lunch with a friend, good backgound music to work to, an overcast bike ride, and a fave flick to wrap up the day…. Score!

Oh, and this scene from the movie just kills me. Tears. Every time.


I fell in love with this movie and the soundtrack in high school and still, when I watch it today, it can still transport me……..

…….especially when this song comes on. I know this is a super heavy and sad scene, but the music, how the story builds, Luke Wilson….it just melts me. Speaking of melting…..time to melt away into my bed. Goodnight! Thanks for stopping by! xo
