Movies and such

I just watched Natasha Richardson’s first film GOTHIC. I adore the dvr because I have channels like FearNET on demand. My all time favorite movie channel! This film is really poorly acted (all besides Richardson) was a bit cheesy. But she really did glow in the film – even when she was in the background she was stunning. Some parts of the film are so still the characters reflect a vintage oil paintings. The poster even showcases this style by copying The Nightmare by Johann Heinrich F├╝ssli. Look here, can you see the similarities. This scene is acted out just like the poster dictates.

So strange, I remember my art history class when we talked about transferring text into art and even the symbolism of the sexual demon – the incubus. The film is supposed to be about how Mary Shelley came up with the idea of Frankenstein and Polidori’s The Vampyre. Film also foreshadows the death of Shelley’s first 2 children, the drowning of her husband and Polidori’s suicide. The movie had some orgy-like scenes which surprised me, some homo-erotic parts and lots of eerie masks, the music was so 80’s but for some reason I really liked it. Its a campy flick but overall I am glad to have finally watched it!! LOL I think they were all fucked up on drugs (some potion they drank), because they all imagined the weirdest things.

I’m sad United States of Tara is over. It was such a short season! OH and Being Erica, its really inspirational to see another person go through the hum drums of annoying office life. You guys should watch these!

Things To Do:

  • This weekend is the Japanese festival! I have plans with family to attend.
  • Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp will be coming to Houston for a special showing of RENT. Hell yeah I want to meet them!
  • Get tickets to Phantom of the Opera
  • Finalize website I am doing for freelance
  • Meet again with event client for my other freelance job
  • Catch up with normal work projects
  • Make a fucking new layout for MM!

I have no time for personal projects – kinda makes me stressed to even get online. Only reason I do is to update Shattered-Tranquility. Although I haven’t been in a real chatty mood. Just too tired ;-;
Oh to get updates on my blog subscribe!
