When my kids were young, we went to most every kids movie. I saw them all. Now that the girls are teens, we don’t do that as much. Josh loses out. We try to take him alone to see Disney, Pixar, etc, but after sitting through ten years of that stuff, the Gotham Gal and I aren’t dying to see another kid’s movie.
So when we saw the trailer to The SpongeBob Squarepants Movie, we gave each other that look that said, "you’re taking Josh to that one".
Well I take that back. I’ll take Josh because this movie has an incredible soundtrack featuring original songs from the likes of The Flaming Lips, Wilco, Ween, The Shins, and a host of other good bands.
I downloaded the Flaming Lips, Wilco, and Ween from iTunes yesterday. The Lips haven’t put out anything new in a while so just hearing something new from them was great. The Wilco song is a fun kids tune. My favorite is Ocean Man by Ween.
I’ve always loved Ween.
