I was watching another horrible '90s movie the other day - Swing Kids - in an attempt to watch what I thought was going to be a Pre-Nazi Era / Germany-in-the-1920s film so I could do some Frankenstein research.
What I was thinking when I rented this... I'll never know.
Swing Kids is basically one giant Disney-boy music video, complete with the 1990's swing music craze, a young Christian Bale and Sean Robert Leonard.
Think Newsies set in Nazi Germany.
It's not a terrible film for what it is - but it certainly was not what I thought it was.I'm actually surprized at myself - come on, I grew up with these actors, how could I not know??
Anyway, it was fun to get a bit of sketching in for Frankenstein, so I could start filling in the background with some interesting faces.
The past two days have been so incredibly cool, I've been wearing a sweater and drinking green tea lattes. A SWEATER. IN JULY.
But I actually like that, so it's no biggie.
Gets me excited for fall!
In other news - isn't this color amazing? It's like a sunset in my fruit.
If you're at a market and you see these guys, I highly recommend picking them up. Really really good dipping sauces!
Haven't tried the BBQ flavor yet, need to find it in stores!
