And I take a deep breath and I get real high and I...

...scream to myself, whats goin on?

I have gone slightly mad with purpose and have rented about 10 movies I've always wanted to see.

Vertigo was the first one I watched. I really liked it- I've seen some Alfred Hitchcock movies before and it was definitely different from what I was expecting, and since I like to be surprised by a movie, this was a good thing. My favorite part was Scotty's dream sequence when he replays the murder and the fall in his mind- it was so trippy and definitely the scariest part of the movie for me.

If anyone has any suggestions for my must-see movie list, speak up, child!

Where I wish I was right now....:

Banksy at Bristol!

I have this plan that somehow I will become this guy's cat suited apprentice and we will run around the streets at night and I will help him create his awesome art. Actually, I will probably just hold the ladder as he makes his awesome art. Or I could just keep watch at the corner and hoot like an owl if I see cops.

Great plan, no?

Actually, I do have a plan for the future...sort of. More like a loosely structured outline, perhaps...?
Anyway, I've decided that whatever I end up doing in my life, I want to be creating something. I want to have some kind of consistent output into the world. I can't describe the feeling I get from creating something- a drawing or painting or a story or just a movie I made with my friends.
Being able to take something from my head and make it real is the most incredible ability in the world to me- and it's strange, but even though this isn't really a steady career path, and I still don't know exactly where I want to be in 20 years, I feel sure of myself after realizing this.

WOOT future-ranting feels good.

Cat suited apprentice, OUT!


  1. indeed, it is a very good plan!

  2. Yay for movie time! I never watch enough films. xx
