Things I'm Gonna Do This Week- January 2012

Welcome to the very first post of a brand new series I'm calling, "Things I'm Gonna Do This Week!"

In this monthly, two part series, I will first announce a non-essential task that I will do during the forthcoming week. These tasks will be things that I really don't have to do, but have always wanted an excuse to complete. Then, after seven days, I will report on said task with my typical fire & music.

This week, I have decided to take on the challenge of watching "The Films of Anjelica Huston."

You see, I recently realized that the only 3 roles I've ever seen Ms Huston do are:
  1. The devilishly beautiful Morticia Addams in The Addams Family movies.
  2. The devilishly Wicked Stepmother in Ever After.
  3. The Devil, or rather, the Grand High Witch in The Witches.
In a career that spans three Oscar nominations, one win, and who knows how many other accolades, I think this lady deserves to be known in my mind as something more than "the mom from The Addams Family." So, I dedicate "Things I'm Gonna Do This Week" to one of the most imposing screen presences in cinema, as well as a pioneer for white women living with ethnic sounding first names: Anjelica Huston!

I am certain this week will be filled with many misadventures as I try to track down her thirty year old films as well as find the spare time to watch them, so come back next week to read all about it. In the meantime, however, have a devilishly good day.
