i’ve stalled my cowboy bebop rewatch. i’m up to ep 22 and i’m too nervous to finish it because i get too emotional near the end. i was going to do it chronologically too so that means inserting the movie between 22 and 23. i’m too sad to finish it. also i said i’d watch it dubbed and i haven’t yet……………..
I’m speed rereading the fault in our stars just because I can and I’m up to page 9 and am already sick of Johnny G’s voice. There have already been large writing blunders. OOOOH SE7EN IS ON TV
was feeling really crap about my life (unfortunately that happens more often now) and i finished reading let the old dreams die…… i hadn’t finished reading a book in SO LONG and now i can finally shelf it ahaha. now to finish norwegian wood which i started like, 3 months ago… maybe even earlier.
i want to write a big gushing blog post about lindqvist’s writing now that i’m like ~in the moment~ but i always say things and never do them aaaaaAaaa
I have a mock exam tomorrow which I’m totally gonna bomb lmao I’m so nervous. But after that I can relax a bit and I’ll probably watch more bong joon-ho YEAH
i’ve been devouring cowboy bebop analyses/blog posts like no other recently and i’m really frustrated. i’ve come across many well-articulated and delightful textual readings but the writer will always have a view that sets of a red flag for me. For example: claiming CB is catered/made for a western audience, presuming/defaulting a character as white (i saw this just then????? ugh), reducing/simplifying Faye’s character to the ‘femme fatale’ (i could argue this concept is inherently sexist, plus did we watch the same show?????), the vulnerable and lost girl (infantilising and stripping the character’s agency), or using gendered slurs such as ‘bitch’ or ‘skank’ (i’ve seen fans and non-fans of the character do this, but nonetheless RED FLAG RED FLAG). I’m picky about interpretations of this character but what do you expect, the audience’s relationship with a character like that is fated to be complicated. Also, singling Spike’s character as the ‘cool lead male’ archetype (again, did we watch the same series???) i’m sorely disappointed. you win some, you lose some.
like, i’m ecstatic to read ingenious pieces depicting interpretations and views different from my own, especially those of older audiences who can pick out the homages of the show (not saying that i wouldn’t appreciate young viewers’ voices as much).i’m so frustrated that i’m inclined to start writing my own series, but I feel like i have nothing particularly groundbreaking or new to add.
why did i let my cousin pick my english name when she was like 5/6/whatever what if i just romanized my chinese name then i prob would’ve been called faye (lmao fo srs) and my name would have a+ alliterative appeal but also it’d be 2 syllables only and that’s a bit clunky
should start a proper blog (like i said i would aaages ago) so i can like, formally write on cloud atlas and bong joon ho and do episode commentary on cowboy bebop and write all the things i really want to write
I’m so bitter I set my alarm to get up early but my phone charger broke so I ran around the house to find another one and I fell back asleep out of crankiness I’ve wasted so much time oops
I THINK I SHOULD START AN ACTUAL FILM BLOG SO I CAN BE ENCOURAGED TO ORGANISE MY FEELINGS AND ACTUALLY FORMALISE MY WRITING.
I HAVE A MILLION THINGS TO SAY ABOUT MOTHER (MADEO) I’M DYING HERE. I MAY EVEN LIKE IT MORE THAN THE HOST????????? THAT’S SAYING A LOT.
FEATURES ONE OF THE BEST PERFORMANCES OF ALL TIME JFC. ALL FILMS SHOULD BE ABOUT ELDERLY WOMEN FROM NOW ON THIS IS LAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’M SO SAD i wanted to buy the cute watermelon bathers from gorman

I’M GOING TO TRY TO SELL MY WATCHMEN DVD because i own 2 copies and some of my old CDs. i’m usually super sentimental about keeping old stuff and my first CDs were 2-disc special editions of like, kelly clarkson and gwen stefani. but i need that NO MORE. if i sell them maybe i will allow myself to buy the DVD of La Haine (!!!!! OMG!!!!) BUT ??? I don’t usually buy DVDs unless it has a shitton of good special features and with La Haine I am really thirsty for the Criterion Release??? WHAT SHOULD I DO????? I was also eyeing Seven Samurai but that has a criterion release also??? but i’ll never get around to buying criterions bc no $$$ :’(
i’m gonna be outdoors all day tomorrow in like 37+ deg weather i need to bring water and not die also slather myself with sunscreen for the first time in my life i’m gonna come home with ridiculous tan lines also what makeup won’t mel t off my face yes that is the priority laughs

Please send me random asks I am out at a picnic right now. I went to a chocolate factory and it was cool. Now I’m reading Norwegian wood and it’s really hot outside. I am the fly queen I attract insects.
