What are you up to.
lost count of how many films i've watched this week now. i saw 5 on sunday alone. help me
it's my favourite. if you're still interested:
Dead Heat - 80s buddy cop movie, with zombies. Great 80s trash, surprised I hadn't heard of it sooner.
Sinner: Diary of a Nymphomaniac - Jess Franco film from the early 70s. Seen any Franco films? This is pretty typical but not his best. Full of murder and lesbians and sleazy dialogue, and actors who underact forever. This one had a really cool soundtrack. I love Franco films but it's hard to explain why/how
Violated Angels - 60s Japanese art/exploitation, based on the Richard Speck murders. In black and white apart from some colour scenes of corpses. Basically a sleazy cash in with as much political subtext crammed in as possible. I really liked the imagery but it's clearly really cheap.
maybe I should branch out in 2013
the budgets are so low and the directors so frustrated that it's hard to tell what's high art and what's not. sometimes it's both !
Likely to lose my job in the new year. Not a huge deal, the last year at work has been horrible and I've wanted to leave for ages but these aren't the circumstances in which I wanted to leave. Going to do this for a bit longer then watch another film.
i have to get up in 9 hours i could go to bed and get 9 hours sleep instead of being bored
this always boggles my mind
i'll get that done before work tomorrow. i don't really feel christmassy. at all.
my space bar keeps breaking and i've been really dizzy and lightheaded all day.
i think i just need a hug or something but i won't get one for a couple of weeks and that's bad :(
got clean sheets though. yessssssssssssssss.
/listening to herbie hancock/looking forward to watching the annual mad friday police invasion of the wetherspoons down the road.
need to wrap the one present i've got. Gonna wrap it up with a couple of pages from the guardian lol cos i don't have any wrapping paper. It's ok cos i bought a christmassy bag to put it in so it's not like i went to no effort (it is though).
bored otherwise. realised that i really really shouldn't have done fuck all the past week and a half. Have to write an essay, revise for 2 exams and do a shit load of reading for my dissertation by mid-january ish
uh... whats your favourite christmas food? mine's the roast potatoes i guess, cos my sister's bf that cooks them does them really well and i've never really had that before so its great.
Going home tomorrow, which I'm looking forward to immensely. My brother is back from the US and really just want to be in the pub with him.
Probably have a few beers and watch a film or something. I've got Moonrise Kingdom and People Like Us to watch, choosing between Bill Murray and Olivia Wilde is hard.
Got the brush off from the girl I went out with on Monday which is pretty disappointing as she'd seemed really interested. Think I might wait until the new year before finding someone else, my love life in 2012 has been cursed.
these things are hard. I spent so long thinking about what i might have done wrong though that I have it perfect now so he helped me... wish I'd had if figured out before him though cos he was good.
Moonrise I just watched now.
I don't think I really did anything wrong to be honest; as low as my self confidence is right now, if she wasn't into me its her problem.
I'll go with Moonrise Kingdom then.
After just one date it's ok then, i think if it was a couple more as it was for me it starts to be like 'wut'.
i've got a point
then ate some biscuits....then just sat around.......going to sleep in a bit.
Fuck you, Madagascar
Finished series 3 of Breaking Bad earlier this week end haven't calmed down from it yet.
I can't remember leaving. It must have been about 4 in the afternoon though. I remember getting in a taxi, and stumbling Into bed fully clothed.
Had about 5 hours sleep now, and it's only 11pm.
Finished work at about 10am.
but showered and went to a friends instead. fell asleep for a bit.
Was banging like.
Then went out for #somebeers with a couple of friends. One of them's from my home town but I hadn't seen her for years. Turns out erm, she's great. Had some great banter with her, we really share the same sense of humour. And she doesn't live that far away from me in London. Brilliant.
Tomorrow I'm going home and then in my home town for a few days until Boxing Day. CHRISTMAS!
they had some 10.1% mikkeller beer there so I go die now
shakin some hands and sayin some merry christmas
