you got a panty on your head.

I would like to know how it feels

for my desperation to get louder.

Thursday, February 25, 2010

You know what a hug's for?

A hug's to show you care.

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Can't think

in public.

Monday, February 22, 2010

Time never pushes.

Only presses.


and remember who you are.

Who has waited his whole life

to feel this miserable.

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Pick me

to make things better.

Tuesday, February 16, 2010


on purpose.

Too quick

into being.


in language.

Sunday, February 14, 2010

We make up rules

in search of something to do.

Thursday, February 11, 2010

Don't be any of them.

Be all of them.

And now we meet in an abandoned studio.

We hear the playback and it seems so long ago.

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

Seen your video.

The phony rock and roll.

Sunday, February 7, 2010

We express in every gesture

more than our will accomplishes or recognizes.

The only audience of philosophy

is the one performing it.



The answer must be in the attempt.

Before Sunrise - 7/10. Is dated and not intentionally. 'Dazed and Confused' sought to be about a certain moment in time, 'Before Sunrise' just ends up being that. Early-90's greasiness. I wanted to like it. I can't pay attention to long passages. I guess it comes down to whether or not you like the characters, right?, since it's just them talking. They're okay. I think the problem's more with Linklater. Does anyone feel involved in watching this? It's watching two people behave. It keeps us distant. Maybe it's the dated-ness. "We are not them." It turns them into "tiny fractions of people."

Oh, shit, son.

2LDK - 7.5/10. Ton of fun.

The desert's for starting over.

25th Hour - 6/10. Surrounded by a great idea that only rarely makes it into its own movie. A movie about saying goodbye and whether or not to say goodbye gets side-stepped to look in on lives that aren't of particular interest.

Big daddy.

The Princess and the Frog - 8/10. Holy shit, are you delightful. Charming, disarming, a genuine evil, and at least two songs I liked. The girl has the least personality, which is a disservice. Needed to be something that need be worth wanting, etc.

Once again, I must ask too much of you.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - 7.5/10. Funny, exciting. It contained a story-arc and a character-arc, albeit ones that have nothing to do with its title.

No. I'll tell you how he lived.

Avatar - 6/10. At one point in my life, I believed that Comic Sans, University Roman, and Papyrus were interesting fonts, seldom used. This movie was made by people who seemed to simply 'not know any better.' A combination of every movie I've ever seen. Some asshole's freshman dorm and high-school taste made into a movie.

A very particular set of skills.

Taken - 6.5/10. Intensity in ten cities. Not really. Great promise, technically proficient, people I didn't care about. Tell by the number which of these mattered the most.

Old reviews.

Found in searching, or sacrificed in favor of a joke. Presented here for posterity.

Chisholm '72 - 7/10. Interesting story, if lacking anything insightful. It's like, hey, man, I can take a nice picture but am I a good photographer or did I just pick my subject well? Shirley Chisholm is an interesting-enough character to warrant a documentary, but nothing is learned.

The Prestige - 6.5/10. I have problems with movies about magic that fail to have a magical quality about them.

Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay - 5.5/10. I still like these guys, in spite of their failed attempt.

Aguirre: The Wrath of God - 6/10. Yeah, whatever.

Though he lives among us,

he is not one of us.

It is not for us to question who or what

but how and why.

If Rosa Parks had a monster truck,

she wouldn't have needed to take the bus.

A pack

of throats.

One person dead from such

is plenty.

You will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards,

for there you have been and there you will long to return.

And Vanna White was looking most particularly fine,

as she does most every night.
