Films

Some people I have noticed do not understand how to enjoy films.  Don’t point out when things are unrealistic.  It is not cool.

You’re not going with the movie if you are digging your claws into reality like your life depends on it.  You don’t need to point out everything like that.

“Like, no way could that tiny Mexican cowboy mouse out run an ostrich, and neither of them could out run a rocketship which is being driven by a coyote and a cat, who also, technically could not drive a rocket, let alone afford to pay the road tax. Gosh, you guys are so lucky I’m here to point these things out for you! You are all just fools wandering the Earth, aren’t you.” They seem to say.

You can tell they think they’re so clever, which is weird, because they’re so stupid for not understanding that this is all made up!

When we root for a character, we aren’t necessarily saying we want them to eat their dinner at our house once a week.

It doesn’t mean we would in real life agree with their principles or their actions or their behaviour.  You just have to go with it while the movie is on, because it’s fun!  It’s fantasy!  It’s escapism!  Let go of reality!

This is very important!

What am I reading?

Right now I’m reading a few different books, I like to have a lot so that I can switch around 🙂

First of all, I’m reading a book called Everything I never told you, by Celeste Ng!  Which is really interesting and absorbing, I’m nearly finished it.  Click here to see the book.

I am also reading daily instalments from a website called Violet’s Veg*an e-Comics, which has a whole load of my favourite comics on it, the current daily story is called The Rebel Gang and the Number Ciphers, which is a sort of spy mystery, very texture-rich and illustrative book, full of intrigue and curiosity.

I’m also reading Everyday Use by Alice Walker.  It’s a really interesting book about Alice Walker’s short writings, and her creative influences, African American women’s art, and culture, and the rich tapestry of it all.  It’s hard to describe, without quoting the descriptions of the book, but if you google it you’ll find more information 🙂

Likes and don’t likes

I like chocolate

I like swimming

I like drawing, painting, sewing, knitting and gluing.

I like trees

I like rain

I like water

I like bubbles

I like clouds,

I like spaghetti and I like beans

I like pastry and jam

I like reading books

I like Star Wars

I like popcorn

I like going to the movies

I like drawing

I like taking a bath

I like looking out the window when it’s raining

I like everything like that.

And I like that making a list of things that I like

Helps me to forget about the things I don’t like.

I don’t think

I don’t think you dig where I’m coming from.

I don’t think I’m understood.

I don’t think people see what I’m saying,

They think they disagree,

Because they get the wrong end of the stick.

Why can’t people just understand,

That it is me who is completely right.

And then everyone would agree with me.

I’m not a poet, so this is not very good.

But it’s supposed to be funny, so laugh

And enjoy it.

Life

Life:

Good things,

bad things,

I do them,

you do them,

we all do them.

To each other,

to different people.

It doesn’t matter,

because we are all

just shuffling along the immortal coil.

Or something.

Watching telly

Did you ever see this:

That’s the technical difficulties picture you get on tv, when it’s a problem at the tv station end, and not your signal, or your electricity.  I think.

I love everything.  I love chocolate and bananas and toast and pasta with tomato sauce.  I like tingly feelings and blissfulness and blue skies with fluffy clouds and purple and yellow clouds.  I like it when I get bruises on my knees and grass stains and water.  I like tie dye and rag rugs and scones.  I love jam and movies and popcorn and pizza and playing cards and eating snacks and laughing.

I love the magic roundabout and Brian and Dougal and Florence and Zebbeddee and the lovely cow who’s name I forget.  Erminetrude.
