Two slices of toast and two bananas.

I didn't get up early enough to fry a couple of eggs,  :(  and the bananas needed to be eaten.  ::)

I have seen both. Although I am much more an Elton fan than a Queen fan, I actually enjoyed Bohemian Rhapsody more.
I lined up for a few hours in 2011 and bought a ticket for Elton. It was the first big concert in our then brand new undercover stadium. It was the first time I had ever been to a rock star concert. I enjoyed myself. he is coming again on Feb 6 next year and I went online at 9am when sales opened, was willing to pay about $250 but the cheapest available was $360 so I decided not. Accommodation in Dunedin is already completely sold out (unless you are willing to pay $1000 for the night)
However I came out of Rocketman feeling very depressed. Seems ridiculous as we know that Elton has been drug free for 28 years and now has a happy family.
I am still glad I saw the movie.

Today I remembered the banana. ;D  I ate it with a bowl of shredded wheat.

I dislike most biopics, unlike Oscar.

However, I highly recommend "Rocketman".  It's very energetic, not entirely linear, has big dance numbers and even fantasy sequences.  The lyrics move the story along.  Toran Egerton is amazing as Elton.  Jamie Bell (all grown-up Billy Elliot!) is wonderful as Bernie Taupin--lyricist of "A Love that Will Never Grow Old". 

Brokie connection!

So many people have told me it's a really good movie.  I have no interest in it,  I was never an  Elton fan.

I'm a medium Elton fan with a medium interest in the movie. I've heard it's good, so at some point I might go see it or stream it.

Unlike the Freddy Mercury one. I was not a Queen fan and I heard the movie was bad.

And btw Chuck, I think you'd be better off cleaning the bathroom after the plumber was there!  ;D

Or possibly clean the plumber. ...  8)

Wow, so many different ways to spin the sugar!!

Re: your winged man, it reminds me of a scene in Rocketman where Elton leaves the concert at Madison Square Gardens and goes to the rehab facility, still dressed in his performance costume!

Hiya BetterMost friends.



I have the day off work today, as I needed to get my teeth cleaned.  Also, by chance, I had some plumbing issues in the bathroom (minor stuff) and when I called the super, he said the plumber will be in this location tomorrow, so he'll send  him up to have a look at the problems.  I used the afternoon to clean the bathroom, so it's presentable for the plumber.

;D

Other than that, not much going on here.  It's Father's Day weekend this weekend, so I'm meeting the family for a late lunch, early supper on Saturday, so I need to go out and get cards for my dad, my brother and Trent's dad.

Since my brother, s-i-l, niece, Derek and Trent haven't seen the new car yet, I'll  drive the family up, and let them see Sabrina.  I'll still do my laundry on Sunday, so that way I can see dad on Father's Day.
