Too fucking right. Happy weekend everyone. Stay off the internet, get down the boozer, enjoy.
I might start lecturing in happiness. DAMN I FEEL GOOD.
I might have drunk too much Cherry Vimto today.
i've got a nice glow on...ready for some food before i face the pub this evening
And now, I'M OUTTA HERE.
i read that book you recommended....men and women and chainsaws and whatnot.....pretty good.....sometimes it gets a bit too....'BUT THEY'RE ACTUALLY MALE...SHE'S HOMOSEXUAL NOW ACTUALLY....I MEAN...SHE LOOKS LIKE A GIRL, BUT SHE'S ACTUALLY A SPANISH HERMAPHRODITE...THAT'S NOT A MAN, THAT'S ONLY WHAT YOU THOUGHT A MAN WAS WHEN YOU WERE IN THE WOMB BUT NOW RESURRECT EVERYTIME YOU SEE SOMEONE WITH A CURVED FACE HOLDING A PIANO IN SAN FRANSISCO...'.....y'know?
but apart from that it was good. made me realise that mrs doubtfire is misogynistic as fuck....
i was just flicking through the book now actually. i've mainly read the "her body, himself" essay as it's in a collection of loads of essays, and believe me if you think this went a bit mental in places you should see some of the more old school ones (linda williams specifically, and barbara creed, she's big on psychoanalysis) and they're all like BUT THIS HOUSE IS REALLY A WOMB AND THEY'RE TRAPPED IN IT. which i guess clover can do a bit as well, but believe me, some of them are PROPER mental, she tries to be progressive and do positive readings of things anyway. do you remember the bit where she's saying how all that an actress needs in order to get a role in a slasher film is tits and a scream? i've got a horror blog on the go atm you see and it's called TITS AND A SCREAM. yeah.
i noticed that quote you like too...about tcm being the gone with the wind of slasher films or summit...i cant remember...
and i can sort of see why you can read it as a feminist film and all that
i like how ripley being a feminist icon is like...a massive fallacy...that was good....anyway....decent read
will you do my essay for me? also buy me a telnyashka
and i'm up to my guts in essay myself, so prob not.
i'm alrite....i sort of miss wasting time on here with you benders...i've only got access when i go to the local library...and it's a tough scene to spend too much time in...very cliquey is the local library...
