A big hello to devinjay , come on in and close the door, it’s getting colder outside!
1. My flist are having a sorrowful year:
Just reading through the journal entries I have missed it seems that quite a few have ill relatives or have lost them in this year. As one of the gang (losing my mother in January) my heart goes out to you all and I hope things buck up soon.
2. My flist know their TV:
This is more for wolflady26 and jadeweasal than anyone else, due to their praise of Carnivale and Firefly (have watched all of Carnivale and the pilot of Firefly), and I think I have to say that Carnivale is my favourite TV series of all time. It really appeals to my sense of good horror and great story telling and I implore those who have not watched it yet to check it out. I have added the two series to my DVD wish list (currently only containing Deadwood as must-have) and I’m trying to convince Etina to watch it (she gets scared by horror).
3. My flist don’t know their films:
I have had three films strongly recommended this year on the ole LJ: Cube, The Descent and Ginger Snaps. I have already whined about The Descent and was so not expecting the other two to fall into simliar categories. I agree that Cube is a nice idea in principle and a little different but you can’t make a high-tension characterisation drama with people that can’t act, as you’ll never pull it off. Some scenes were frankly painful to endure, due to the actors’ failing to get the emotions onto the screen. I wanted to love it but I found myself really disliking it instead.
Ginger Snaps was a laughable attempt at being clever, at using metaphors in cinema that just so didn’t work. The effects were weak, the acting terrible and I think this film signed the death warrant of my relationship with teen-angst dramas; I really must be getting old! *scratches the grey beard*.
4. My flist are part of my daily routine:
I really noticed the not checking of my LJ every day and seeing what’s going on and chatting with you all, etc., etc. I missed you!
5. My flist are into guns:
I’m scared of guns, can only see them as weapons of destruction, yet my flist are chucking pictures up and having fun shooting stuff… I’m scared.
6. My flist are funny and creative:
Reading through the stuff today, I realised how much you all inspire me and how much I laugh whilst reading!
7. My flist are mine:
Cause no one has the same flist as mine… have you?
