My face accurately describes having to spend sunday going to the library to trawl for books about the UK film council, applying for jobs and then going to a meeting at work. Sheeeeesh I just want to spend all day watching angel. xD
should get outta bed I suppose.
I’ve got a lovely day of laundry and writing reports on UK cinema exhibition, ouffff.
First though its time for ham n eggs bitch, and some arrested development.
Canny big journey back from my hometown. In the tv show of my live my trip back for the last week was a nostalgic trip in how far I have come, going through all my old things, visiting places I used to hang out and hanging with people I havent seen in years. Now I have returned the next few months is the lead up to the graduation season finale in this part of my life. These last few episodes will decide everything for next season, whether I will stay in manchester and build a career once I have found a job or whether I have to move back home after no jobs are about. My love life is also getting more interesting, just interesting, nothing significant has actually happened but there are seeds planted for it becoming awesome next season maybe. Life is weird at the moment, its like really exciting but kinda nerve wracking aswell with all this uncertainty. I’ve always looked at my life in seasons like a tv show and where I am as almost like a coping mechanism, kinda like dan harmon does with campbells journeys; If anyone read my journal they would see most of this whole seasons story arc. I am certainly intrigued to know what next season will entail.
Spot the difference.
This dissertation is making me super tired, super beardy and the weather is making me super cold.
This is what I like to call my scott pilgrim outfit. xD
A portrait of how I spend pretty much all my non-work/university oriented time.
Just sat for like an hour watching lava and volcano videos, I love you internet.
I used to be fixated with volcanoes and meteors when I was a kid. I think it was all down to terrible films like deep impact, dantes peak, armageddon & volcano. I was too young to realise how terrible they were and I was just fixated/terrifyed with the thoughts of what would happen if I ever lived to go through anything related to them.
A forgotten picture from the night I visited friends in newcastle we fooled media students into thinking we were graduates who worked as runners on the scotland shoot of skyfall. xD
Naff photo of my super low budget attempt at santa for work today. £2 Hat, £2 white hair spray can. I look well short and fat in this photo cause of the perspective, apologies. xD
I used to do cool shit all the time, like partying and just doing stuff with friends but now they’ve all left and I’m single as shit I’m just turning into this recluse and I fuckin hate it. Today the two most exciting things I did were get some comfy pants to chill in and went to watch the master on my own.
I hope this is just a phase like. Its like I’m over my last break up but its just a fucker to know there was some key date where shit started going downhill for me. She finished with me and totally tore up the stuff my life consisted of for so long and I pretty much fully got over that around the time all my great friends left, the ones who are so close they are like family to me; the ones who even if you just sit in a room and dont say anything, you just watch shit tv its still cool. So yeah they all left and then its just been abit of a spiral of lonelyness since then eugh. I’m a bona-fide optimist and i really believe all this will pass, its just not the greatest. I cant imagine what position I’d be in if I wasnt 100% happy just sitting and watching tv and films in my spare time, but luckily thats pretty much my life so I’m happy with it.
Obviously this is just me getting shit off my chest which is what this blog is for I suppose. But hey, Christmas is coming soon which means going back to barrow and wining and dining with my nearest and dearest so shall be toppest notch!
These seem to get attention so this weeks a 160 word guest segment on a film website about a film you love and a film you hate.
“A film I love is the Darjeeling limited. Bar 2001, it is the closest I have personally come to perfect film. A film that is just a bloody sublime marriage of amazing acting, writing, directing and cinematography with a superb soundtrack to boot. The way Anderson trades his usual quirky American locales for the majestic setting of India is perfectly complimented by the top notch performances of the three brothers on a soul searching trip. Moving stuff indeed.
A film I despise is Max Payne. Notably because it is the only film I have nearly walked out of the cinema during, only the principle of paying £8 for a ticket kept me parked for the whole bloody shambles. This abomination takes it intelligent neo noir source material and basically craps all over it till all that remains is something that barely passes for a story. A portion of the cinematography and its gung ho stylistic action scenes slightly redeem the flick, but every other aspect is so thoroughly drowned in mediocrity that not even Marky Mark could save it.”
I’m well aware the darjeeling bit isnt too great cause it was hard to objectivly write about it without going HFKHGBESTFILM!!!DFHLKDFJ but I managed. yup.
Has anyone else had a weird kinda facebook thing with anyone? I dont know how to describe it, theres this girl who was on a course with two of my uni friends/housemates and she walked through my living room once and I was just like (to myself) who the hell was that cute thing in my house. But yeah the weird facebook thing where you have met once or twice in real life among groups, you add each other on facebook and then you just like each others shit all the time but never actually talk.
The last time I saw her on graduation night I was totally going to buy her a drink but then I either got drunk and forgot or thought it would be weird xD
I totally want to talk to her but it would just seem weird and random as hell. xD
Ah well. maybe that group will reassemble one of these days!
