I had some emocrap content in this window, as a result of the serotonin crash I experienced from not actually having to run around doing 10,000,000 things every day, but I feel much better now so I'm glad I didn't post it last night. XD Though this may have something to do with the fact that I bought a bottle of this bright pink stuff called "rosso amaro" which is a sort of Italian herbal bitters, and have been drinking it halved with gin or sambuca all night. This is hardcore, dudes: when the regular flavours of booze begin to strike one as boring,
or one is alone and need to pace oneself by making the drink as disgusting as possible.
I still suspect this is part of the rationale behind absinthe.
(Actually, the real problem is that the end result is too sweet. XD;; Gin is sweet, and sambuca is sweet, so.)
1) Re: the CD mixes - akatonbo
, could you let me know how many tracks there are on the CD and what the times are? XD;; I don't want to upload something that doesn't correspond to what I burned for you. sesame_seed
, finish listening! *wheedles*( 2, 3 - real life stuff. )
STUFF THAT FALLS UNDER THE TITLE OF THIS POST:
4) Sweeney Todd:
one of those times where I'd heard of the thing itself but had basically no idea what the story was. I suppose I expected what it is one expects out of a Tim Burton movie that contains Johnny Depp. I was highly amused, and unfortunately went into it hungry (I say unfortunately
because nothing puts me off the sight of food when I'm hungry XD;;). ( Minor cut for minor discussion. )
possibly the first movie I've ever seen that said something about writing
that I felt was relevant, and that I could relate to, even if it was disturbing. I mean, there're plenty of movies where the characters are writers, but they're usually about shagging and not about what the job entails, amirite. Granted it's a terrible, uphill topic for film to take on in the first place (and not that much better a topic for books). I am also gobsmacked that Harper Lee was a character in this. TRUMAN CAPOTE AND HARPER LEE, CHILDHOOD FRIENDS AND INTREPID REPORTERS. It's like a superhero comic.
6) I didn't mean to post Pete Doherty videos three times in a row, wtf, but this is too effed up not to link:Stalking Pete Doherty part 1
Sororial unit was too creeped out to watch it, so of course I did. XD Basically it's a Kon Satoshi movie. Perfect Blue,
British indie version - though given that it's a documentary, it feels like it's being told from the wrong narrative standpoint. Kon Satoshi would've been like INEXPLICABLE TIME LAPSES and HALLUCINATION SMEARING INTO REALITY (unlike many of his characters, Pete Doherty comes with a perfectly good excuse). Also, Kon Satoshi would've made it about Amy Winehouse.
7) And now for the one thing you never knew was missing from your life: Morrissey on Jonathan Ross part 1
