TODAY IS MY LUCKY DAY!!!! in the mood for love for cinema and also reservoir dogs/steve buscemi clips in the lecture!!!!
✨ keir dullea and gary lockwood at #astortheatre #2001aspaceodyssey 🎬🌟💫
i have the worst dreams when I nap this should honestly discourage me from wasting precious studying daytime. I had a dream where I got really mean blog comments (I mean my subject blog not this one)
Tutoring for 2 hrs… I talk a lot when I teach so my voice is like gone ugh
every week for my cinema blog i struggle SO MUCH to think of something to write so i never post it earlier in the week where everyone gets comments! so then i tell myself to write it on sunday (or later) and write a short post (it has to be min 200 words approx) but then i end up doing a long post anyway like 500+ and it ends up being good so i’m really proud I WANT PEOPLE TO READ IT AND COMMENT thank you.
I JUST STARTED WATCHING TRIGUN (finished 4 episodes) AND WHENEVER I START AN ANIME SERIES I GET SO AMBITIOUS AND WANT TO WATCH LIKE 4 SIMULTANEOUSLY like i want to watch KLK, FLCL, mushishi and beck right now as well OMG
had a dream that i went to boarding school, spike jonze came and taught us a class about video games, signed a flyer for me and addressed me as ‘mrs. mia wallace’ and wrote a cute message, used my legs as a pillow
SAVE ME FROM HETERONORMATIVITY AND CASUAL MALE-DEFAULTNESS IN NARRATIVES!!!!!!! SAVE ME ok like twice in the same week (in a discussion about movies) i’ve had dudes give vague examples but saying things like “he wants her” (as an example of character objective/motivation) or like “he kills her” (as an example of cause/effect in classic hollywood narratives) STOP!!!!! THIS!!!!
the 2 film societies at my uni have little-NO girls in positions of authority…. i’m so annoyed by this, no girls have stepped up for a position of leadership which is sad!! the film soc president is a girl though which is good but no one else on the committee is… i’m going to go for committee member next sem
2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY i love it and i can’t even explain why, i don’t understand it i never will???????? i keep thinking i won’t be scared of it but each time i watch it i’m so terrified, the breathing sounds make me so paranoid. the soundtrack is flawless ksjdhgjkhvks
I SAW PEOPLE WITH SIGNED 2001 POSTERS!!!!! I’M REALLY JEALOUS!!!! should’ve gotten a photo + keir and gary. I almost asked them a question too during Q&A i was really hesitant and then i finally thought of a question but they didn’t have time which is probably for the better hahaah, they took like 4 audience questions all from dudes who introduced themselves as film students ahahaah
I WAS TAKLING TO MY FRIEND (about cowboy bebop and eva and i was jealous cos he has a BEAUTIFUL cb poster BUT) about insincere volunteering/charity work that ultimately turns out harmful to the people you’re “helping”……. anyway long conversation i’m not going to replicate here but……. that got me thinking lol………. i have a girl on fb who is actually THAT white saviour girl, i can’t believe i know someone like this….. makes pseudo-awareness posts all the time and garners attention for her “charity work” (quotation marks there for a reason) and her dp is her with ~underprivileged kids whoa~~ and then posts photos of her at music festivals with the most fucking obnoxious native headdress/war bonnet!!!! WHITE SAVIOURS SMH!!!
WHEN WILL THIS TREND END???? SMH WHITE INDIE ARTISTS AND FOLLOWERS FOR THIS FUCKING NATIVE/INDIAN/TRIBAL TREND I’M SO MAD
other bad things: i have a lot of coursework to catch up on!!! it should be ok tho. also i ripped small holes in my tights and a BIG hole in my fitted sheet (wtf?????). also other bad things some people i know have developed bad + obnoxious attitudes about things and it’s stressing me out…… ugh
i need like 10 jobs to save up for trips aaaaaaahH
probably wasted a few hrs today watching block b videos where they do some weird butt-dance
also i had cramps so i took painkillers and had a 1hr terrible nap and i had a HORRIFYING dream where i became like a flesh mass but also kind of like a sponge??? and my body spread out and i was like ‘i’m having another neural breakdown’ ?????? and soft hip hop played in the background w meaningful lyrics sung by the evangelion cast actually it probably wasn’t even me that experienced body horror it was probably characters of eva i dunno it was anxiety-inducing and horrifying then i woke up and was like I H8 MYSELF and i had to study for 9847982347 hrs
hi friends i have a test on wednesday i’m going to flunk because i decided to cram everything in the last 4 days or so lol, it feels like i’ve been studying a lot because i’ve been madly rewatching lectures for hrs and my eyes burn but actually i have a lot to write HAHAHA hopefully i’ll be able to do it by tomorrow before a filmmaking workshop i CONVENIENTLY HAVE
whatever what i was going to say is that i want to your messages/asks/everythings but i’ll do that after wednesday i may look to be active on tumblr rn but i’m literally here to get overdoses of The Boyband i’m soooo ashamed
bless good catering me and Rachel were legit at the food all night I shouldn’t have even had dinner tbh. consumed too much ruining my health etc whatever
also I’m tryna get my sister to come to orchestral concerts with me but she’s not into it….. lol nerd. wanna go to dreamworks exhibit also
can’t wait till my midsem tests are over (and by that I mean me failing them) and for my grandparents to come back from china (in like 2 months tho lol) so I can utilise my uni lib resources and take out Chinese films to watch with them. I will try to watch then without eng subtitles.
