I've been a feeling a bit down over the past few days but I seem to be over that now. I didn't want to say "over twice" in that sentence but the only alternative was "past" and I'd already said that as well. How unfortunate! How are you?
ive been trying to finish reading a book tonight, it went from rly short stories to two quite long ones and i got stuck with the shift in pace, its a good book though, but i got a new book in the post today which cost me 3p plus postage from amazon
i'm meeting up with the ghosts of DiS past tomorrow, i have a driving lesson as well but i guess thats less exciting
feeling down sucks, huh?
do you have any plans this weekend
Please elaborate. I might be going to Club NME tomorrow night with some mates. Not really my club of choice but they're usually into their mainstream RnB and I can't dance to that at all, so got to compromise somewhere. Also, I don't think I'm aware of any indie clubs in London on a Friday night. Any ideas? I guess if it's music they don't like, it doesn't make much difference whether it's mainstream indie or "proper" indie. I thought I had plans for Saturday as well but I can't think what. Oh well.
but nobody went so it shut down after like the first night
i dont rly know anything about london, i just usually get taken to places in the islington/shoreditch area, my brother used to go to some indie night at kings college student union i think
i'm gonna meet ideserve2 and maybe wishpig tomorrow but i dunno whether wishpig is gonna be there so maybe just one ghost
dont you think being a fearless superhero like will smith would be cool
it wouldn't matter if you were a superhero or not.
being a superhero like will smith would be cool though, why are you going to london is it just to hang out
also, whats your favourite film and why
i watched the happening the other week it was pretty funny, someone in it said
'y'know hot dogs get a bad rep, they got a cool shape'
Does my profile still say I live in Bristol? I go to uni in Bristol but I was born and raised in London.
Being a superhero like Will Smith would be cool. He's kind of like House meets Superman. I like to think that's the sort of superhero I'd be if I were one - apathetic and detached. That's also how I like to think I'd be in a torture situation.
My favourite film is probably The Station Agent. I like the free-form structure. I'm not sure why exactly; I think it just makes you feel a bit more involved with the film. And it's just something a bit different, I guess. I've grown to prefer films which are more about characters than about stories as well, and The Station Agent is definitely one of those. Characters I can see a lot of myself in too. I'm just a massive narcissist, really. But ultimately, it's just a really nice film about people being nice to each other. That's great.
have you seen Hancock? Is it any good?
i'd like to though, i was a bit disappointed by i am legend it was all a bit too serious for my liking
films dont stick to a conventional structure and explain everything then it encourages you to participate more in giving the film a structure yourself so it becomes a more personal experience
yeah will smith is cool, id quite like to be spiderman but the last movie sucked pretty bad, i hope in the future when robots threaten mankind will smith comes to save us
is the station agent the film about a midget, i dont think ive seen it but i remember the name, nice films about nice people are cool, i watch a lot of depressing films coz i dont really like noticing things about myself in film characters so i like to watch things that are alien to me
i can never think of a favourite film that isnt home alone or gremlins. im listening to the soundtrack to this just now
but when i went to see it i had to ask the cute girl in the box office for a ticket for it and then sit in a basically empty cinema watching it, it was a bit sad
do you think people who dont like irn bru are weak and inferior
i just dont much like films where yr supposed to like people who are really mean because theyre quirky or whatever like wes anderson films, i find them a bit depressing
i like juno and films with ellen page in them
Appropriate film to be left in the cinema alone with, anyway. Next time, ask the ticket girl to watch with you. I don't know how successful a ploy it'll be, considering she has to do her job and all, but it's worth a go.
I think the non-structured films thing is more to do with me having a short attention span. If you're led through a film linearly, it's easy to get bored, but if it's going off in all directions, it's less so. That said, I hate it when you have multiple - seemingly unconnected - stories all going on at once, even more so when they all happen at random times throughout the films chronology. That just confuses me.
The Stations Agent is indeed the film about a midget. You should definitely try to see it sometime. As for Irn Bru, I don't drink the stuff and I think *I'm* weak and inferior, but I'm not sure there's any causal link between the two. In general I just think people who don't drink Irn Bru have good taste.
For someone who asks so many questions, you don't use many question marks. Why is this?
and it was pretty empty but there was this girl who mightve been hot sitting on the same row as me, i thought i shoulda started speaking to her and it mightve been beautiful but i didnt because the film was on and it probably woulda been creepy, i have a girlfriend now so shouldnt really do that kinda thing i guess and girls are a bit of a mystery so idk what i'd say
i might have a look for the station agent next time i rent something i have been reading about it and it seems like itd be pretty good, i can normally figure out these complicated storylines in films like that these days, i dont really know why i never used to be able to, i still cant see plot twists coming though which is cool i dont like being able to guess whats gonna happen in stuff, do you like lost
i'm applying to do a volunteer job teaching and maybe at a turtle sanctuary in costa rica at the end of this year do you think this will be cool
i think talking on internet boards like this is a virtual version of IRL conversations so punctuation seems boring unless you really need it
I think the volunteer job will be horrible. Volunteering for stuff is horrible.
