I believe with my whole soul that I got my fill of Jack "Banana Pancakes" Johnson in college. I still have four or five of his albums on my iTunes, like a hidden monument to the singer-songwriter movement that hit the mainstream and made college-types feel super fulfilled and also a little put out that their music had hit a regular rotation on the listen while you work stations, forcing them to find yet another unique genre.
But this weekend at Costco, we were looking through the books and movies (only because my husband was there. Costco to him is still a novelty and not yet something one must simply endure), and we found a combo DVD pack of Curious George AND Curious George 2 for $8.99. We showed them to Jam Sesh and his face lit up like a Christmas tree. So we bought them.
Did you know that Jack Johnson music runs throughout the first film? I haven't watched the second, but I fear I may find the same there. It's also worth noting that I have never seen anything hold my child's attention the way this movie does. He's one, so he normally has the attention span of a gnat, but to my surprise he has been sitting on the couch with his blankie and his thumb for at least thirty minutes and appears totally at ease.
So Jack and I are getting re-acquainted. I hope that we can rekindle that loving feeling. Maybe it's like how after 1997 no one could listen to "My Heart Could Go On" one more possible time, and then last year Jessica Sanchez sings it on American Idol and suddenly it's a good song again.
We shall see.
Also, I think David Cross is the villain, which is pretty cool.
P.S. Google just told me that they had seen some suspicious activity on my account. I think my blogging twice in a week really threw them for a loop. But if you did get spam from me...sorry.
