Dynamic Duos


My brain is a little fried today. I haven't been sleeping well, and I have way too much on my mind (although I don't think the lack of sleep is related to the brain activity, oddly enough). I highly recommend the playing-piano-after-midnight solution to insomnia. No, it doesn't put you to sleep, but there's a rawer form of creativity spilling from your fingertips when there's no alertness barrier.

So the piano and a late night is my new favorite duo. The sum is greater than its parts. Although the parts are pretty darn fantastic on their own.

Kind of like Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams.

Don't roll your eyes. I know, I know, Ryan is supposed to be my fake boyfriend. But he and Rachel were meant to be together. I'm totally on Team McGosling.

But when it comes to power couples, Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese take the cake. I don't remember really caring for either until they started working together.

I posted about some great actor/director pairings over at MovieZen. And yes, Bale made the cut. As did a shout-out to my dead boyfriend Jimmy. 'Cause a favorite is a favorite. And I'm comfortably transparent about such things.

Ryan is my pretend boyfriend, but like you, I'm more than happy to share him with Rachel. Supposedly they are back together again.

I do love Leo and Scorsese together, but definitely not as much as R/R. ;)

Oh, I think Leo and Marty are the professional dream team, sure, but R&R are the couple I not-so-secretly want to see together FOREVER.

Is that weird? Being a fan of someone else's relationship?

Oh, probably.
