hell's kitten

but not that dark

I'm sick. I don't feel bad, my throat's not sore, and my nose isn't running. My only symptom is a scratchy voice and a semi-rough, but not too uncomfortable, throat. You know, the kind that makes your voice drop an octave, or seem to, at least, though no one else seems to notice. I can handle this. I wish every time I got sick it was like this.

Of course, now someone's going to comment telling me that I have some horrible irreversible fatal throat cancer or something.

And I've decided classical is the best music to work to. I knew words are distracting. Techno and the like are too repetitive and just drives me crazy when I'm trying to concentrate on something else. I watched Immortal Beloved yesterday, awesome movie, and got inspired. Have I mentioned how much of a fucking genius Gary Oldman is?

I'm sure this has already made the rounds to those it'll really make sense to, but since it's the funniest thing I've seen in a long time, I'm posting it here too.

It's funny cuz it's true....

(no subject)

I just saw Broken Flowers and loved it. Jim Jarmusch is one of my favorite directors. It was perfect for the mood I was in. I didnt exactly get a lot of sleep last night, and while I wasnt really sleepy, I was definitely ready to just lean back and watch this story unfold. A lot of people said it was slow. It was, but 1) not in a bad way - I was entertained every minute of it, and 2) Um, yeah, that's Jarmusch for you - I was expecting it. This movie made the most normal characters eccentric without trying. I had at least an amused smirk on my face the entire time. It was just hilarious without telling you where or when to laugh. Roger Ebert (though I generally dont pay any attention to his critiques) remarked, "Jarmusch makes films about outsiders, but they're not loners, they're soloists," which is such an interesting way to look at it, and so true. This was the first movie I've seen in a while that I didnt check my watch during.

And how can you not love a theatre that sells homemade brownies and tea alongside the popcorn and candy? :)

Oh yeah - Depeche Mode tomorrow. :)
